The main character from Saints Row 2.

You said villain, not antagonist.

I haven't played that one, though I've heard good things. I have played the third and fourth games though.

It's not as indulgent in its own "wackiness" as the 3rd or 4th, it's still there, but in a way that doesn't detract from the sheer brutality of the setting, but actually enhances it.

You can also change your fighting style.

Damn shame the PC port is so trash.

syndrome

runner up is Dr. Facilier

i would be lying if I didn't want syndrome to win a little. I mean he basically goes around killing a bunch of glorified cops and then tries to bring super powers to the general public.

As for Dr. Facilier the "Deal with the Devil" is easily one of my favorite villainous tropes.

Killmonger is another one like syndrome. They had to force in the scene where he uncharacteristically kills his gf for absolutely no reason, just to make him the bad guy. idc I just close my eyes for 10 sec and keep rooting for him for the rest of the movie each time. I'd watch a whole movie of him & crew doing museum heists.

Facilier almost managed to get rid of a royalty and con a rich tourist from his money, but got fucked and killed by a technicality in the law. He's a working class Martyr.

any pirate

a batman villain who follows batman around all night and just throws shoes at him and when batman reacts, pees on his boots

Davey Jones from pirates of the Caribbean might be fun. You get to be a psychopomp, play organ with your beard, and you have a pet kraken.

I don't rememberthat movie too well though I think I remember him basically having pirate slaves which is pretty deplorable.

lol, that is a valid criticism. The movies aren't great but I still found Davey Jones memorable.

The Grinch.

also

Maleficent or really any dragon related villain.

Also

I have a fascination with the entire undead faction in WCIII but probably Kel'Thuzad

Omg the Grinch is epic. Ruining chiristam for a shit on of children is praxis. Thatd what they get for being Christian. To clarify this is not a joke or sarcastic.

charles vane from black sails

Ivonkov or bon clay from one piece

and the most problematic take jabba the hutt. Yeah the're so fucking vile and hierarchical but also really cool.

Ooh Star Wars Villains in general are fun. I would probably pick Darth Maul personally. Though Jar Jar Binks is a tempting pick too.

Not far enough into One Piece to know Ivonkov yet. But Bon Clay does seem your style from the way you have described yourself.

Why Darth maul. Yeah he looks cool but he's kinda just an authoritarian cultist with incredibly unchecked toxic masculinity. Tho he does look really really cool n badass.

I wish I'm not even 5% as impressive or queer as bon clay. I'm way more cowardly, less loyal and not even that queer looking irl. But I do aspire to be that cool hahaha.

So all I know of Darth Maul is from the movie, I never saw the cartoons so maybe thats the toxic masculinity/cultist bit? I don't remember anything toxic masculinity like in the movie anyway.

Basically what I remember is epic flips, epic soundtrack, epic horns, and epic lightsaber plus there is something about a villain that chooses not to talk somehow his silence makes him scarier which kind of appeals to me (I am very quiet around people I don't know well and everyone just assumes its because I am annoyed by them(that usually isn't the case I am just quiet until i know to what degree to trust you)).

Oh I guess u don't get the toxic masculinity cultist bit if ur not a star wars nerd. Like the dark side is basically a religion where you master encourages you to just be as angry and violent as possible to everyone and everything. Hence Darth maul being toxicly masculine and cultist. You wouldn't get that by watching him it's just something u get by spending literal hundreds of hours studying star wars lore as a kid and even an adult lol

He's actually decently cool in the TV show. But I was just talking movie
