Megatron wins on so many levels, because he started as a gladiator, which made him tough… Both in spirit, and in his construction. And then there is his determination. He will not stop until he has complete control over the entire universe.

Peach, the ruler of a kingdom repeatedly under attack, who hands down refuses to raise an army of any description ever. I would be curious to see how many mushroom people die because of that, per instalment in the franchise. My guess would be, more than the kill count for all the other villains here combined.

I knew someone would come up with a good reason.

Though, the idea of a Militant Musroom uprising against the Koopas is kind of appealing and I wonder what that would look like.

Technically a militant mushroom uprising is happening, by Goombas against Peach. If I remember correctly, the original Super Mario bros manual, described them as original inhabitants of the kingdom, displaced as Peach came in.

Megatron...
he may have done his share of dirt, but for all his evil, is a natural-born leader.
He really has only two weaknesses--a hunger for power, and a second-in-comand more vile than he!
I just love it when Megs gives Screamer his latest dose of whup-ass for trying to stab Megs in the back yet again!

Hard to disagree with that. And those weakness are part of what makes him interesting. In fact, every version of Megatron has some kind of nuance like that.

Picking one and explaining why is the challenge, and also part of the fun!
But it's cool no matter what you pick because all the options are great and could be argued as valid.

Ok Thx Then I Pick The Joker Because Loki Might Become Good Like He Did In The Comics I Haven't Really Read Them Yet But I Did See Them Online And Darth Vader Became Good Again So He Is Out In My Book And Megatron Is Just Stupid! I Mean Killing One Of Your Most Loyal Officers And Bringing Back Somebody You Know Is Gonna Stab You In The Back (Btw This Is Primeverse Not G1) And Joker Is Ruthless In My Opinion And He Is So Creepy It's Awesome!!!

...Where is Doctor Eggman? :o

I'll choose Skeletor. I grew up with He-Man. :) Megatron and Bowser are a close second. I was never into GI Joe that much. The others are cool bit a bit too serious sometimes. And... Since when is Peach a villain?

#Skeletober!

Eggman? More like Egg McMuffin man am I right! Actually, Egg McMuffins are generally well liked, so no, mayber not.

Peach - One could make the arguement! All that rescuing for only a little kiss on the nose and some cake? What's really going on there, hmmm?

Ah, what a perfect metaphor. Eggman is a villain you can both hate and absolutely love. Kind of like McDonalds food; love to hate it, hate to love it.

Heh. Sure. Let's just call it "cake." :iconheplz: Well, at least she isn't a gold digger, and Mario is known for bringing in the gold. Coins, that is.

Good luck with Skeletober. :aww:

It looks like you didn't vote for him either!

Most Bad guys like these don't really have very impressive win/loss records, but Cobra Commander's is especially embarrassing. Still, he's a pretty great character and kind of a lovable loser in many cases.

Peach is the joke entry to see if people are actually paying attention.

But maybe she is evil all along? Someone could make a case for it!

No love for Doom? Doom has to be the most clever of the villains. He will trick the heroes into thinking they are saving the world, but actually furthering his own aims. He will even step in to take over the plans of other villains! He even stole the Beyonder's powers and nearly achieved his ends at conquering the Earth. He currently conquered the Marvel Multi verse, even turning heroes to his side. No other villain, not even Lex Luthor is on Doom's level! 😨

Dr. Doom is my pick as well. He has been a favorite of mine since I got the action figure as a kid. I try to pattern my like around his by having as many video screens as possible in my evil lair.

I'd say the Joker. Why? Because he manages to do better at being bad WITHOUT super-powers than most of the others on this list do WITH them. Despite having no known super-powers (beyond, maybe, immunity to certain poisons), his combination of cleverness, ruthlessness and sheer insanity is enough to rack up a body count that is literally only topped by planet destroyers. Plus, he has come closer to killing Superman than any other non-super-powered criminal (INCLUDING the Man of Steel's own arch-enemy).

Megatron.

It's a bit more than I want to get into right now, but the gist of why he's my favorite is because of the sheer force of his personality combined with his general charisma.

Out of everyone you've mentioned here, Megatron is the only one who could talk me into truly joining his cause.  I might join up with the others out of a sense of self-preservation, but Megatron could make me BELIEVE in him.  And that's what makes him so dangerous.

My favorite would have to be the Joker. I was going to say Megatron, but he really isn't a bad guy. The Joker has to be the greatest bad guy because he likes to kill people. He will laugh as he murders hundreds of people and no one else does that. No one from the list will laugh as the world burns itself to ashes, only the Joker would get a good laugh from that. And to add to the evil, he's human with no powers. Sure Lex Luthor is a normal human, but he doesn't kill people to make himself happy. He does it to get under Superman's skin. Coba Commander is a normal human too, but he has an army behind him to do all his dirty work for him, so he himself doesn't get his own hands dirty with the blood of his enemies. But a normal human, a being with no powers is truly frightening. The Joker has no reasons behind all the killings and chaos. He just wants to sit back, have a good chuckle as the world burns around him, and that's what makes him truly evil.

p.s.... Princess Peach as a bad guy? XD

Peach as a bad guy? Well, she's there as an option if people want to choose! And it seems some people have! An argument can be made.

Great reasoning. Thanks for your post!
