Top 5 Most Evil Final Fantasy Antagonist's

The Final Fantasy series is well known for its gripping story lines and explosive plots. In every game a main antagonist is present to compete against the stories hero, but often these aren't as evil as the other antagonist's the player comes across in the game.

Continuing with our Top 5 Theme (previously; Top 5 Most Differcult Bosses), We've compiled our top 5 most evil Final Fantasy antagonists (Final Fantasy VII onwards) which can be found following. Do you agree with our choices? What would you change? (Please note this article contains Spoilers) (Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XII, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PSP)

Weak list. What kid wrote it? No pre-ff7 games? Hojo is nowhere close to Kefka in terms of evilness. But I won't dwell in that cause of spoilers. What about Paramecian Emperor fromo ff2? He was pretty evil too.
BTW, there are few in the article if you haven't finished FF7, 9, and 10.
And Jenova's actually an entity not a character.

As a joke I would also add Gilgamesh from FF5. He was really "evil".

I have to agree with Kefka as well.
ReTarDedFisHy  +   2174d ago
Yeah, but,
Kefka was a clown. that wore a dress.
That being said, he was pretty friggin' evil, he was a maniac. >.<

The list is alright, but should've expanded more, not only three FF games. :S

Yeah I have to agree. Who wrote that? 3 guys from FFVII? I'll agree with Sephiroth, but Hojo? Come on. Where's Kefka from FFVI? He's waaay more evil than Hojo's "I'm gonna experiment on animal A with animal B" tendencies. Kefka even poisons an entire castle of people, just for the sake of doing do. So Hojo's some kind of mad scientist, nothing new there. I also wouldn't consider Jenova one of the most evil. She played such a minor role as an actual character I don't know why she was considered.

Final Fantasy VII onwards?! Insta-fail...
Kefka is one of the most evil villains in all of fiction, not just FF.

SPOILER for those who want to go back!!

Kefka poisoned a town's drinking supply and broke the f'n world. He didn't "try" to break the world like Sephiroth did with Meteor and failed. Kefka actually did it! He succeeded!

Besides, who can forget that laugh?! XD

This Article FAILS
Where's Kefka?

From FF Wiki:

While previous villains were distant, cold, ruthless and bent on their goals, Kefka was loud, short-tempered, maniacal and destructive with a deep hatred of nearly everything on the planet and he possessed an infamous sadistic sense of humor, finding joy in the deaths of innocents.

See, this is the meaning of true evil, one who kills for the joy of killing, and not because it's their "Destiny" to kill.

How do you enjoy killing? Killing just because he could? Does it explain why Kelfka hated the world?

Kelfka sounds real one dimensional.

its Kefka
and he was awesome, think Heath Ledger as Joker.
-Angel-  +   2174d ago
And...that's it? Where is Kefka? The only character I agree with is Sephiroth, and Jenova...what?

Did this guy play anything before 7?

I know most people kind of brush off FF8 but Ultimicia was pretty wicked in her our right trying to distort all dimensions into one, she also had the coolest summon, Griever
specialguest  +   2174d ago
I need to revisit FF8. I rank it as my 3rd favorite FF game.
CryofSilence  +   2174d ago
FF8 was my favorite of all of them. But I still think Sephiroth is a better villain than Ultimecia (or rather Edea - Ultimecia)
CryofSilence  +   2174d ago
Terrible list. Here's a better one:

1. Sephiroth
2. Kefka
3. Ultimecia
4. Garland
5. Kuja

That was just made in a couple seconds and it was still better than what they put together. (meaning this isn't REALLY what I think, but you get the idea)
