(M MG M) Top Ten MG Villains

Villains! The bad guys. The dastardly dudes. The vile vixens. The characters you love to hate or hate to love. I LOVE villains, especially MG villains. Every hero and heroine needs an awesome villain to contend with, right?! Here are ten of my favorite MG villains (and yes, three are from Harry Potter...what can I say? J.K. Rowling created some awesome bad guys)...

Lord Voldemort  from the Harry Potter series
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is one of the most brilliantly crafted villains evah! That face alone is terrifying, right?!

The White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia
Brrr! I love the newer Narnia movies, but The White Witch from the BBC movies always gave me the shivers.

Captain Hook from Peter and Wendy  
I always loved how Hook was sort of a bumbling villain...tick tock!

Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter series
This woman is just so easy to loathe, what with her racist like ways, her punishment methods and her ghastly wardrobe *shudders*

Queen of Hearts from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland 
(not to be confused with the Red Queen from Through the Looking Glass)
I love how very crazy and nonsensical this Queen with her head!

Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events
Olaf is definitely one dastardly dude!

Kronos the Titan from the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series 
Kronos is a cunning and cruel villain...I mean he killed his own father and ate his own children. Eww

The Trunchbull from Matilda 
When I was little, I was terrified that one day I'd have a principle like Ms. Trunchbull who would toss me around by my hair!

The Grand High Witch from The Witches 
Roald Dahl's Grand High Witch is so wonderfully wicked!

Dementors from the Harry Potter series 
Not sure if the Dementors are actually considered villains, but they do scare the beejeezus outta me! Always carry chocolate people :P

What are some of your favorite MG villains?!

Oh my, Aeicha, I'm so proud to tell you that I've read every book you mentioned in this post and can't be more agree with you! <3 Your villain picks are definitely awesome! I think Voldemort is king of villain for sure LOL! The Trunchbull annoyed me very much when I read it, and witches are the cruelest creature ever!

I can't mention all the villains in your post, but I really agree with your picks! Amazing list! :)
