    Favorite Video Game Villain?

    Post by katimus_prime on Thu Jun 06, 2013 8:54 pm

    Xeno notwithstanding (Ramsus, Cherenkov, Margulis, Metal Face), my favorite game villain of all time is probably Professor Hojo from FF7, followed by Seymour Guado from FFX (worst design decision ever, best post-FF7 FF villain).  I was also pretty obsessed with Kefka when FF6/FF3 came out in the US when I was 13.  I think that's my list.  Any more would go into splintery tl;dr territory.

    Besides Xeno, my favorites are Lucifer from the main-series SMT games, Kuja from Final Fantasy IX, Delita from Final Fantasy Tactics, Ghaleon from Lunar 1 and 2, and Alcor from Devil Survivor 2.

    Kefka's one of my all-time favorites too. |3  And definitely Cherenkov and Margulis from Xenosaga (I have a lot more sympathy for them than I have for most antagonists in general), and VOYAGEEEERRR!

    ... I'll probably think of others later, but I just woke up and my coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

    Well, my favorite villain above all others belongs to Xenogears and her name is
    *drum roll*
    Miang.

    I have plenty of other favorites, though. From Xenosaga:
    Dmitri Yuriev
    Albedo
    Margulis
    (Oddly, the Xenosaga version of Miang, i.e. Wilhelm, quite annoys me)

    From FF games:
    FFVI: Kefka
    FFVII: Hojo
    FFIX: Kuja
    FFX: Seymour
    FFXIII: Barthandelus v
    Spoiler:
    Barthandelus is, like, the FF version of Miang, with him manipulating events over centuries of time. Oh, and I love his battle theme. And his evil laugh too! "Either way, the end is at hand! MWUHAHAHAHA!!!!!"

    Love it. xD
    From Shadow Hearts:
    Albert Simon
    Nicolai
    Rasputin v
    Spoiler:
    He's got the best evil speech ever! "And when the last human dies, I will still be there, LAUGHING! WHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!"

    I seem to have a thing for evil villain laughter. xD
    From Metal Gear Solid:
    Liquid Snake (NOT Liquid Ocelot)
    Vamp
    Volgin

    From Resident Evil:
    Albert Wesker

    You know, I can probably go on like this for quite a bit longer. Let's leave it at this. xD

    I will conclude this post with a quote from Miang;


    "Hehem... adieu, boys."

    :cool2:

    It's hard to categorize what a "villain" is...a lot of great games tend to have gray morality and it's hard to tell if someone is a literal "bad guy"

    if they're fleshed out? Buuuuut here's a list of antags or non playables that I've really liked.

    Xenogears/Saga: Ramsus, Margulis
    Final Fantasy: Seymour (FFX), Kefka (FF6/3), Judge Gabranth (FF12. Does he count?)
    Vergil (Devil May Cry)
    Ninetails (Okami)
    Sydney Losstarot and Romeo Guildenstern (Vagrant Story)
    Revolver Ocelot (moreso the Major in MGS3)
    Big Boss (MG1/MG2 mainly)
    Mitsunari Ishida (Sengoku Basara)
    Anubis/Nohman (Zone of the Enders) <-- it's moreso the coolfactor that Anubis exudes tho.
    Erol (Jak II/III)
    Marlowe (Uncharted 3)

    Kefka, FTW!!!!!!!!!!


    I even like back-seat villains that you don't really have to fight, especially if they make me HATE them enough to wish I could kill them. XDD
    Then I also like Albedo (XS), Sorceress Edea (FFVIII), The Illusive Man (ME), and the true villain that I won't spoil if you haven't played Jade Empire, because yeah, that was an awesome twist.

    -Albedo, Yuriev, and Wilhelm (Xenosaga)
    -Bass.EXE (Megaman Battle Network)
    -Teisel and Bon Bonne (Megaman Legends)
    -Booster (Mario RPG) Is he a villain though? lol
    -Liquid Snake, Ocelot, The Pain, and The Fury (Metal Gear Solid)
    -Dark Samus and Ridley (Metroid)
    -Ganondorf (Zelda)
    -343 Guilty Spark (Halo)
    -Lou (Guitar Hero 3)

    I believe those are all the ones that come to mind that I find cool or interesting.

    Grahf and Yuriev for Xenos....

    Moebius the Time-Streamer from Legacy of Kain. He's a manipulative bastard worthy of Krelian and Wilhelm in just how awesome he is. Shame on you all for not playing LOK.

    Solidus Snake and The Patriots AIs for Metal Gear Solid

    Heihachi Mishima for Tekken

    It's hard to pick a number one favorite >.>

    I'd say Kefka for Final Fantasy because ... he kinda won lol. Kain is awesome too but he's not a full time villain.

    Baldwin from Ogre Battle 64 is pretty good
    Spoiler:
    He betrays his own brother near the end of the game, manipulates your best friend leading to his demise, and if you take the wrong path in the game he kills your dad leaving him to die in your arms.

    Terranigma ... wait that's a spoiler lol.
    Spoiler:
    The Elder

    The Boss and Big Boss from MG/MGS

    The Last Story
    Spoiler:
    Dagran

    I'm there's some I'm really forgetting.
