Every Pixar Movie Villain Ranked Worst To Best

And when everyone's super... no one will be.

A story is only as good as its villain. While the antagonists are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Pixar movies, the animation giants have created quite the rogues gallery ever since Toy Story was released 25 years ago.

From super-villains, to stock-cars to a strawberry-scented anthropomorphic teddy bear, Pixar have a high success rate when it comes to delivering interesting and evil characters, that have haunted children's nightmares for years. Of course not every villain has been so memorable but just as fans debate endlessly over which Pixar film is best, there is plenty of discussion of which villain takes the crown.

For this list, we are looking at the main villain from each feature-length Pixar film and will be counting only the very notable secondary villains. Therefore there will be no entrants for Inside Out, Finding Dory or Onward, as those films don't feature a distinctive villain, unless of course you subscribe to my belief that Joy is actually a villain but I won't get into that here.

25. Thunderclap - The Good Dinosaur

Admit it, you completely forgot about The Good Dinosaur and its villain called.... um (checks notes) Thunderclap!

In all seriousness, this Steve Zahn voiced pterodactyl places last because he, like the movie, is completely forgettable. It's a shame because he had potential. Ever since Jurassic Park III, the flying dinosaurs have always had a menacing presence and along with the film's admittedly stunning visuals and Zahn's voice work, he could have been a compelling villain.

But alas it was not to be and as a result you'll likely have forgotten all about Thunderclap by the time you're done reading this list.
