    STD's Best TWD Villain of All Time

    Since I am not a fan of the Skybound "Best Walking Dead Villain of All Time" poll that was recently posted because of their bogus, multiple choice for the same character option; I'm making one for our forum because I think we'll do a better job of dictating which villains are truly worthy of the top spots than an open poll that involves too much of the GA morons.

    Mind you, I don't necessarily consider all of these choices to be true villains or antagonists by the real meaning of the definition of villain or antagonist. But they all fit the category. And by best I don't necessarily mean your personal favorite villain. Just whoever you feel fits the bill as the cruelest, meanest, most intimidating, most psychotic asshole this show has presented us with thus far.

    I'm going to let everyone to vote for their top 4 villains in the poll so that we get a better idea of where some of the more secondary villains may end up placing than we would if everyone just got one vote. One vote would make it rather uninteresting. And if you would like to, feel free to list your top 4 in order so that others can see who you voted for.

    Sorry @Carl's Right Eye, I couldn't fit Rapey Davey in the poll.

    Hmm

    I think there is different ways to look at this

    Merle = Most entertaining villain
    Governor = Most villainous villain
    Negan = Most successful villain
    Shane = Rick's kryptonite (he got away with so much more than anyone else got away with because of who he was)


    You basically have to choose from those 4.

    This is rough..considering most of these people were once good. But I went with

    Gareth and co
    The Governor
    Ed
    Tomas
    The claimers

    As for the rest..I don't think of them as villains. Plus I stopped watching so I don't know half of them so I won't bother trying to assume

    Great idea @John Dixon -

    Gotta say #1 on my list is Gareth who planned his survival scheme so well and for a while, successfully. All those signs for miles to draw in people desperate to survive. He was believable, easy on the eyes, and gave every appearance of good-will to suck them in.

    #2 - because of the long-lasting effect on the story-line, is Ed Peletier whose abuse of Carol turned her into the force she became (a la "Terminus" and other turning points for the plot)

    #3 - The Governor - another plot changer, also very manipulative with no real concern for anyone besides himself (excepting his daughter)

    #4 - Negan - who literally cares for no one at all and puts his alter-ego into a baseball bat to blame for his cruelty. Certainly has a major effect on the plot.

    But to my way of thinking, Gareth is the most memorable and hideous villain of all.

    Thanks for coming up with this!

    The Governor
    Merle
    Gareth
    Negan
    Shane
    And I think if Tomas would have stuck around longer that he would have been a great villan.

    I went with my favorites. I've always hated the main villains on the show.

    Merle, Ed, Simon, Lizzie

    Not that I would rank any of them as the best, but I can think of 4 you could have added given more room in the poll.

    Andrew from the prison. Though it initially looked like he was Tomas' lackey, he displayed a lot more guts escaping the walkers Rick threw him to, and his plans for sabotaging the prison were well thought out, and very destructive leading to Lori and T-Dog's death.

    Richard from the Kingdom. His plan to get Carol killed to get Ezekiel to want to fight the saviours was showing an ends justify the means philosophy that could have led to even worse had he succeeded. I believe he was a latent villain, but we will never know.

    Carol herself. Killing Karen and David, scheming against Pete, threatening Sam gives her some villain points

    And if not a major villain, surely the garbage wrapped in skin award should go to Dan, the claimer that tried to rape Carl back in S4.
