Question ID: 560589
I was wondering if someone could provide a list of 30 evil
cartoon/funny characters from various popular cartoons shows and
movies. An example of the types of characters I am looking for are:
Mr. Burns, Dr. Evil, Shredder, Bowser (King Koopa) and that evil
couple from Rocky & Bullwinkle.

Characters like Mr. Smithers and the Brain (from Animaniacs) aren't
evil enough... the
character must be very evil, and moderatley well known. Make sure you
include characters new and old

If you could find more than thirty that would be great too!

The list is an okay start, but...

I already named Mr. Burns & Shredder, so I would need others,
preferably more modern, on a newer show.

less recognizable is okay, also i prefer one word villains.

I do not consider the following characters to fill my 'evil' criteria,
the characters must be completly evil:
Dr. Octopus (Peter Parker's mentor)
Green Goblin (a friend of Peter Parker's family)
Lex Luthor (superman's friend/foe)
Mom from futurama (makes love with the professor)
Elmyra (loves animals)
The Grinch (ends up good)
Magneto (Often portrayed in good light, long friend of professor xavier)
Wylie E Coyote (Is just hungry and chases a roadrunner, he's not
really evil for that in my book. he has a valid reason to chase the


joker/riddler/penguin/poison ivy are all enemies of batman and i would
have preferred more variety/care put into the list and less comic book

a lot (more than 1/3) of the characters listed originally appeared in a comic book:
Brainiac - Superman
Dr. Doom -  Fantastic Four
Dr. Octopus - Spider-Man
Galactus - Fantastic Four
Green Goblin - Spider-Man
Joker ? Batman
Lex Luthor ? Superman
Magneto - X-Men
Penguin - Batman
Poison Ivy - Batman and Robin
Riddler - Batman  
Shredder - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (this was a comic before tv & movies)

The other characters you listed were great!

With the remainder, or "updated" list I would like a lot less of the
DC Comics & Marvel Comic characters, because I feel naming 12 (many of
which aren't portrayed as 'evil') doesn't leave room for the much
needed variety that would come with TV & Movies evil characters. In
fact, I will say that I would prefer not to see any DC or Marvel
characters due to their abundance and complex nature (many are good @

May I remind you the point of the list is that they are evil, not half
evil, not good sometimes, but pure evil, all day, everyday.

another great example would be "dr. claw" from "inspector gadget" or
the "alien" from "alien"

Instead of rushing with an answer, take your time to really consider
what i asked for and the type of characters i'm using as examples.

Thank you.

Can you please tell me, out of the list I provided, which ones are acceptable?  

If I am understanding correectly, you want cartoon charaters (not from
Marvel comics) that have been evil all the time - not having turned
evil at some point in their life?  I apologize for misunderstanding
your earlier question and would like definate clarification - I can
use evil characters from movies as well and not just cartoons?
