Top 10 Villains Tag

Thank you, Lydia, for tagging me for the incredible, the amazing, the tag of Top Ten Villains! I actually managed to come up with ten...After scrolling through my Goodreads 'read' books (and remembering how much I loved them all). So here we go, delving into the darkness of villains...

1. Post the picture
2. Thank the blogger who tagged you
3. List your top ten favorite villains and why you chose them 
(they can be from movies or books)
4. Tag ten other bloggers.

Riiight. So, ten villains. These are probably not my favourite-est ones, but I couldn't remember any particular 'favourites' so I just found some ones I remember liking...for their evilness I guess. Villain's are a confusing bunch. They're not in any particular order...just the random order I thought them up in.

Guy de Gisborne - King Raven Trilogy. Honestly, I just felt sorry for Guy. He was just trying to do his job, but every time he guarded a wagon or two travelling through the forest it blows up in his face. EVERY TIME.

The Curse - Draven's Light. CREEPY. Really, really creepy. I loved this book massively. 'The Curse' was almost the best/creepiest/evilest baddie I've read about in a while.

Artemis Fowl (the younger version) - The Time Paradox. Having Artemis battling his younger self was rather interesting, and Artemis-the-younger-self was a pretty good villain. Plus, time travel is always good.

President Snow - The Hunger Games. He was just awful. Everything he did. Egh. *shudders*

Sauron - The Lord of the Rings. Yup, I couldn't do a bookish post without mentioning Tolkien. Sauron is just...Sauron...and I need any more reason?

Hugo Bonvilain - Airman. I loved Airman, it had all my favourite stuff in it: cool characters, epic plot, evil villains, and, most of all, FLYING THINGS. Bonvilain was pretty evil, I mean, the stuff he did to all the characters! I really feel like re-reading that book. I've managed to resist so far though...

Witch Lady forgotten-'er-name - 100 Cupboards. She was no, she was bad. But good at being bad.

Another Witch Lady forgotten-'er-name - The Silver Chair. Did she even have  a name? 'Cause I honestly don't remember it in the slightest, and I've read Narnia (way) more than once. But, that aside, she was lovely and evil, and a great villain, and I'm running out of new things to say about these people...

(Nooo, there's still two more to go...Umm...)

The Green Goblin - Spiderman (2002). It did say they could be from movies too, and I've recently watched Spiderman for the first time. And...when I woke up the next morning I was very disappointed that I still needed glasses. (Meh, where's my spider?) So yeah, I really enjoyed it. The Green Goblin was rather evil.

(Just one can do it Jane)

Dolores Umbridge - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Oh boy, I can probably honestly say that I hated her more than Vol-- er You Know Who. She was just Horrible!

Phew, there we go, ten villains and I didn't even use any of my own. Thanks again, Lydia for tagging me. 
Now I must apparently tag ten other bloggers...I won't be able to get that many, but nevertheless, I shall tag:

Sarah: Novus Papilio. Since you missed your monthly post in April, you'd better do two this month. :)

Jessica: Inspiration. Just 'cause you might be lacking in post ideas.

Katie Grace: A Writer's Faith. I've never actually tagged you before, but there's always a first time. Though I won't mind if you can't do it.

Hosanna Emily: Having a Heart Like His. Same goes for you. :P

If you don't want to do the tag, or if you can't fit it in with your blogging schedule, or if you've got some other legit excuse like their school work blowing up (note: that 'blowing up' was a metaphor) (Sarah, you don't [have a legit excuse]. Unless you literally blow up your school work), that's fine, I really don't mind. Also, if there's anyone else who wants to do this, please consider yourselves tagged. And be sure to check out my tag-ed-persons' blogs, they're all pretty cool.

If you haven't already, remember to stop by SS+S Naming Names and leave your vote. See you all Friday.

Fair Winds!


  1. Lol. I knew neither you or Clare would obey rule #1 by reusing that picture. :D I like the one you created though.
    You picked some really good villains! I almost chose President Snow, but he didn't really fit my qualifications because I've never wished he was not a bad guy.
    Suaron and the Green Witch (yeah, whatever her name was) were both good choices as well.
    The Green Goblin!! Yes! I had nightmares about him for a week after I watched that movie! (I was much younger then) He was one very freaky villain!
    Also, I haven't managed to get my hands on Draven's Light yet but I know in general Stengl is very good at writing evil characters!

    1. Yeah, I did consider using the picture but...I couldn't, I just couldn't. :P
      The Green Goblin was sooo evil. I didn't have nightmares but he gave me 'movie terrified' shivers as I watched it. :)

      And Draven's Light. Is. Amazing.

  2. Thanks for tagging me! =) This sounds like a fun post!!

    By the way, the witch in The Silver Chair was The Lady of the Green Kirtle. =) I only know because it's my favorite series. =) Lol!

    1. YES! That's her name! Thank you, I was getting annoyed at myself for forgetting. :)
      Hope you can do the tag! :D

  3. Hmmm. Excuse me as I go find some explosives to attach to my school work...

    Nah, just kidding! This looks like it will be fun to do...Thanks for tagging me, Jane! :D

    1. Hehe, so that's what all the exploding sounds were from your direction! XD
      (Not actually the army base)

  4. Ooh, Airman is on my to read list! I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I've heard excellent things about it. :D

    Green goblin. Definitely. I love the green goblin in the newest Spiderman -- he's very creepy and evil and I love it. xD *probably shouldn't love evil villains as much as I do... oops*

    Thanks for tagging me! I never know if I'll do the tag or not, but I'll keep it in mind. :D

    1. Airman. is. amazing. I just loved it to death. So much.

      Yeah, as I tagged you I did figure it might be a while until you did it, but that's okay. (I do that way too often myself) :)

  5. UGHT TO SNOW. I HATE SNOW SO MUCH THE EVIL FISH. *growls* And Umbridge was honestly the WORST. She abused her power and I was so so mad at Dumbledore for not doing something about her. Like couldn't he have turned her into a turtle?? Sheesh.
    Also I'm pretty extra sure the witch in the Silver Chair was JUST the "Green Witch"...or Lady of the Green Kirtle? CS Lewis was very imaginative with his naming skills. XDXD BUT SHE WAS AWFUL TOO. UGHHHH. I always felt she was MORE awful than the White Witch, because the Green Witch killed Rilian's mother and everything. *weeps*

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. Umbridge was sooo evil. I got annoyed that no one except the twins were doing anything to actually try get her out! Like, seriously? The other professors were just sitting around doing next to nothing.
      Yup, the White Witch was never as bad as the Lady of the Green Kirtle. She only made it winter for a hundred or so years but the Green Lady...egh, I just hated her way more.


I love getting comments so don't hesitate to tap one out! (doesn't even have to be in Morse Code)

And I always reply to them, so don't forget to check back!
