Best video game villains of all time

Who would Mario be without his Koopa Troopers, Link without Ganondorf, Pong pad 1 without Pong pad 2?

ShortList.com have looked back through decades of gaming to record the greatest villains and opponents to have reared their ugly heads.

Team Rocket(specifically Jesse and James, far as the anime goes) are terrible villains. They are still trying to capture Pikachu and still stealing pokemons. They never really evolve/grow as villains.

The best video-game villains, the video game companies

My all time favorite villain from every game ever was Marcello, from Dragon Quest VIII, because, basically, the entire game presented him as 100% justified in his beliefs (so much so that he made a much more heroic figure than than the heroes of the game).

It's a shame he got "possessed" by the "evil god" so he could function as a villain/boss. He was easily the most sympathetic character in the game.

Beyond that:

Jon Irenicus from Baldur's Gate 2, and Kain from Soul Reaver are two of the absolute best, too.
