Your number one sucks. They took a pretty good villain from the manga and book and turned him into a basic ass horror movie slasher. Kitano was a much, much better villain than him in that movie, to the point where they made him a better character than his equivalent in the manga and book.

Other than that, I like your list. I need time to make one.

Kitano was hilarious as hell, but I understand why’d you choose him over Kiryama.

I never read the manga so I’m only going by how sociopathic he was in the movie.

I’ve heard he’s better in the manga though.

Pretty good list.
I would put Daniel Plainview (There Will Be Blood) pretty high on my list. He's the biggest omission for me.

Woo, was thinking about creating a 'best bad guy thread a day ago. Good thing you put this up. Wonder if any of those guys are likeable? I see Apollo Creed... He's a good one, you regret seeing him get killed....
Damn, its good to get a new computer with a decent graphics card. Doing a lot of Battletech recently. I luv Twitch for the visuals, its therapeutic...

I’d argue against Apollo Creed being a villain and just say he’s an antagonist.
"It's unpleasantly like being drunk." "What's so unpleasant about being drunk?" "You ask a glass of water."

Same. There are characters who act more villainously than him in the first movie, like Rocky's mafia loan shark employer and even Paulie. Apollo was the one who gave Rocky a title shot and simply underestimated him. IIRC, he's even friendly (though dismissive) toward Rocky during their press conference.
