Originally from the World of Charn, she was accidentally brought to the World of Narnia, and although banished to the North by the great lion Aslan, she returned 900 Narnian-years later when she usurped power from the royal family of Narnia. As a curse upon her Narnian subjects, she began the Long Winter, thus earning her the title, the "White Witch" She magically forced Narnia into a hundred-year state of frozen snow and ice during her reign" 

9 - Count Dracula from Dracula by Bram Stoker

"Count Dracula  is a centuries-old vampire who claims to be a SzĂ©kely descended from Attila the Hun. He inhabits a decaying castle in the Carpathian Mountains. Dracula exudes a veneer of aristocratic charm which masks his unfathomable evil.

Dead and buried in a great tomb in the chapel of his castle, Dracula returns from death as a vampire and lives for several centuries in his castle."

8 - The Capitol from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

"The Capitol is where the wealthy and powerful people of the nation reside. Not only are the Games controlled from this point, but so are the districts. The Capitol is a dictatorship that seems to be run by President Snow. It is also the only mentioned major city.  It is known for its lamb stew and hot chocolate. The Rockies also acted as a natural barrier and was useful to the Capitol because they could aim their bombs at the rebels on the mountains and kill them."

7 - The Volturi from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

"The Volturi act as the unofficial royalty of the vampire world, and operate from the city of Volterra. They have existed for at least 3000 years, and are the largest coven in existence. However, they do not follow a vegetarian diet. The Volturi deal swiftly and decisively with anything they consider a threat to their city or to the vampire world; for example, they protect vampires' existence in secret. They destroy anyone who attempts to overthrow them or resist their authority."

4 - Sauron from The Lord of The Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

Having embraced the Dark Arts he encountered in his travels, the former Tom Riddle, now known exclusively as Lord Voldemort, raised an enormous army comprised of followers he recruited both at school and afterwards, as well as many dark creatures. This army, known as the Death Eaters began a campaign of terror and violence never before seen in Britain."

So, what do you think? Is your favorite villain on the list?


  1. ooh lots of Harry Potter's and Hunger Games. I hadn't thought of the White Witch - that's a good one. :D

  2. Voldemort is definitely number one. When I created this list for Top Ten Tuesday a while back I included Bob Ewell, the awful man in To Kill a Mockingbird as a non-fantasy addition to the list.

  3. Wow, a lot of my list made it on this time! Great list. Glad to see Sauron made it close to number one. He really is a baddy!
