I love how Chris Brown is seen as a villain, alongside REAL villains like Hitler and Jack the Ripper
+6
Level 39
Apr 14, 2015
Or Simon Cowell..
+11
Level 54
Apr 11, 2018
The Simon Cowell one is the real kicker...He is a villain in that he hurt the feelings of wannabe starlets by being brutally honest with them on a game show...C'mon...insensitive maybe, but not villainous.
+2
Level 66

He's a leech, bleeding talented people dry and often leaving them penniless after they've made millions for him.
+3
Level 60
Apr 15, 2018
Agreed. One mistake in a heated argument, and he's labeled a villian for the rest of his life. It wasn't premeditated, and he hasn't done anything else since. Yet, he's listed alongside The Devil and Hitler.

I wouldn't have such a problem with Chris Borwn and Simon Cowell if the list included more nonfictional, non-serial killers or non-terrorists.

I’ve never heard of Chris Borwn before...

Level 43
Aug 25, 2018
Hitler was (and is) not villain for everyone, so I think it should not be in this list
+8
Level 21
Aug 26, 2018
Hitler is a villain to any rational and ethical person who knows who he is and what hes done. Just because he didnt specifically hurt you doesn't change this. Jack only killed prostitutes yet he is still a serial killer and villain.
+7

Maybe you're right. Maybe he shouldn't be on the "villain" list. Maybe that's too much of an understatement. There should be a special list for people who have gone beyond being a simple villain - Hitler, Stalin, Amin, Pol Pot, Caligula - the elite of the villains. While I'm on my high-horse, Xtian77, you stated that "Jack only killed prostitutes". I wish you would rethink that comment.

FowlChr: "Villain- a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel". Pretty sure Chris Brown ticked the "cruel", "involved in" and "crime" boxes, regardless of whether he is considered to be reformed. And I find it very interesting that his inclusion is more controversial to you than Simon Cowell or Guy Fawkes (not suggesting they shouldn't be there of course).

What's so great about Guy Fawkes? He attempted to blow up the English Parliament building.
+1
Level 72
Feb 12, 2021
There were many who would have supported that idea at the time. The parliament supported killing Catholics for practising their religion. They were the real villains IMO, not Guy Fawkes.
+1

I think you should accept "Count Dracula"

I thought that people love Guy Fawkes (see Anonymous... hahaha.) even thought he was technicially a terrorist (or revolutionary?).
+1
Level 79
Jun 3, 2015
I think we celebrate more that he didn't succeed than the fact that he tried... though there are probably a few people who still would support him. His old school refuses to celebrate Bonfire Night, apparently.
+3
Level 71
Feb 14, 2017
He was probably one of the few people to enter the Houses of Parliament with true intentions
+1
Level 66

The quote you're trying to claim credit for is "the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions".

I'd like to see Springheel Jack and Whitechapel Ripper for "Serial killer in Victorian London" he was know by those names as well as Jack the Ripper.
+1
Level 61
Jan 29, 2021
Nope, that's wrong. Spring-heeled Jack is a totally separate entity--an urban legend started in the 1830s. He apparently could jump really high... as if... his heels... had springs?

As rewarding as it was to see Chris Brown listed between Hitler and Ganon, it was just a little weird.

u should also accept cruella de ville as a spelling. i couldnt get it because i didnt spell her name like you did

Cruella is accepted now.

Level 48
Apr 14, 2015
Not a great quiz in my opinion due to mixing fictional and real-life villains. I'm not the kind to say it is 'too soon' to bring up anything from the Holocaust, but I ALSO think a list that includes Cruella De Vil and Sideshow Bob on the same level of villainy of Adolf Hitler is kind of insulting to the millions whose' deaths he is responsible for, and it isn't even just the Holocaust (11 million human beings were murdered by Hitler's Nazis, made up of 6 million Jews and 5 million others including political prisoners, homosexuals, gypsies, ethnic Poles, and Soviet POWs), as Hitler started World War II by choice and an estimated 60+ million people were killed.

So again, this isn't a big deal, BUT it would he better and more respectful if Hitler was removed from this list, because being portrayed at a level of villainy equal to that of the Grinch and Gordon Gekko was a mistake and you should correct it as quickly as possible.

Level 81
Apr 14, 2015
Not a great comment in my opinion.
+1
Level 78
Apr 14, 2015
I understand your feelings, Hdny42, but it's not as though Hitler was the only true villain on the list. Sure there are some pretty mild names on the list, but there are also more real villains there, too - Jack the Ripper wasn't exactly on the same level as Cowell or the grinch, either. If Hitler had been the only one among the fluff, you'd have a good point. But one could sort of rank the level of infamy of all these people and characters, and looking at it from that perspective Hitler wouldn't be so far removed from others on the list. I enjoyed the quiz.
+1
Level 53
Apr 14, 2015
Real life is rarely so clear cut in terms of good and evil compared to fiction. There are other choices for historic villains (at least to the western world, or whoever "won" whichever war they caused etc.), but fictional ones are less ambiguous and likely better known.
+2
Level 81
Apr 14, 2015
I don't feel the need to compare the levels of villainy between the villains included exactly because they are so incomparable. There's no way anybody in their right mind starts to compare Hitler to Cowell to Sideshow Bob to Jack the Ripper to Tonya Harding. Yet, they all fit under "villain".
+1
Level 75
Apr 16, 2015
We better never mention Adolf anywhere because it might be offensive.
+1
Level 67
Apr 11, 2018
Nothing anywhere in this list says that these characters are at comparable level, merely that they're all villains.
+1
Level 84
Apr 11, 2018
So you're saying that this quiz needs more maniacal despots who killed millions?

Should've added Stalin and Pol Pot

I knew Fawkes and Cowell, just couldn't remember how they were spelled.

I can never remember Sideshow Bob. In German he is called Tingeltangel Bob.
+1
Level 36
Jul 20, 2020
I know how you feel. In Brazil, for a very long time, Sideshow Bob was called Selvagem Cor-de-Rosa, or the Pink Savage.
+1
Level 66
Dec 19, 2016
Just out of idle curiosity...Is there a reason why "Hitler", "Bob", "Lecter", "Gekko", "DeVil", "Harding" and "Fawkes" are all correct answers but "Brown" is not?
+1
Level 73
Jul 11, 2017
Hutt should also be added as a type-in...

Feb 15, 2018
In at least both the Christian and Judaism mythologies, the fallen archangel has the name "Samael" (also sometimes spelled Sammael). Please add this as an acceptable answer since it is what he was literally called as an angel (before the fall).

For "Enemy of the ninja turtles" please accept Krang (and whichever other villains you didn't include) or make the clue more specific.

In the grand tradition of Jetpunk nitpicking there were lots of individuals involved in the planning to blow up Parliament. Fawkes was just the one who was going to take the final step. Just imagine, a world so backward that someone wanted to kill hundreds of people with an IUD in the name of religion.

Level 78
Apr 11, 2018
Unless you're referring to a religious terrorist who implants women with birth control devices against their will, I'm guessing you meant IED?
+1
Level 80
Apr 11, 2018
Maybe also accept Krang for Shredder since he is Shredders mentor/leader. And since it only says "enemy" also accept BeBop and RockSteady?
+2
Level 67
Apr 11, 2018
Why? It's obvious that the primary villain should be guessed first.
+1
Level 61
Apr 11, 2018
Yes, Guy Fawkes did try to blow up the English Parliament for religious reasons. It was a protest at the discrimination by the monarchs and Parliament against Catholics.
+1
Level 64
Apr 11, 2018
Surprised to see less than 50% for Agent Smith, given the popularity of the Matrix films. But eh, look at who's talking, I didn't do too well myself. But I did get two answers for typing “devil”, so that's nice.

All I could think of was "Mr. Anderson", which of course was how he referred to Neo.

Level 62

Nero wasn't in even in Rome during the fire. What he didn't do was bother to rebuild any of the areas that were destroyed, but then he built himself a huge palace amidst the devastated areas.
