    Who'd you say is the most evil character in any animated series? I'd definitely go with Eric Cartmen of South Park. Although there have been episodes where he behaved rather civil, there's just no topping the countless evil things he's down over the show's history: his several attempts at attacking the Jews, pretending to be mentally retarded to get into the Special Olympics, or perhaps the most evil thing- killing Scott Tenorman's parents and then making Scott eat them (Cartmen himself brags this event as to how far he can go).

    But perhaps there is an evil more evil individual?

    King Hamdo from Now and Then, Here and There's been pretty cruel thoughout the show. He forces kids to become soldiers for his army. He killed a cat. He takes a girl and mistakes her for another girl. Then when he realizes that it's not that other girl, he lets his soldiers have their way with her.

    I thought about saying the Joker, but then I remembered that he was more chaotic than evil.

    The DC animated shows have some real good villains. Nearly all of the complete series of the shows are on DVD now.

    1) The Joker (Batman: TAS) Beneath his clownish exterior lied a psychotic madman. He sometimes threatened people to get what he wanted. He even kidnapped Robin (Tim Drake) in the Batman Beyond movie Return of the Joker. If you've seen the uncut version and what he did to Robin, you'll see just how evil he can be.

    2) Slade (Teen Titans) I swear, after seeing the episode "Birthmark," my perspective of the show changed. I mean, he literally stalked Raven, followed her to no end, and ripped her cloak off. He even made a deal with a demon. Before that, Slade forced Robin (most likely Dick Greyson) to betray his friends by threatening to kill them with a virus (or something like that) if he refused.

    3) Terra (Teen Titans) Robin wasn't the only one who worked for Slade. Terra, who was emotionally vulnerable, was tricked by Slade. He said that Beast Boy had told the Titans that she couldn't control her powers and that they would reject her (which was a lie). When Terra joined forces with Slade, she became really sadistic. The way she treated the Titans in "Aftershock part 1" was deplorable. She was especially hard on Raven. I couldn't wait until the next episode just to get the pleasure of seeing the Titans getting their payback and kick her behind.

    4) Lex Luthor (Jutice League) When you mix a corrupt businessman with politics, you know all h-e-l-l going to break loose. I mean, just the mere mention of the name "President Luthor" gave bad vibes. He kicked the **** out of Question and was even empowered by Brainiac.

    Cartman and Burns are good shouts... possibly Knives (Trigun), Shou Tucker (FMA)... depends on your definition of evil I guess - I'd like to put Light/Kira (Death Note) in there but he's a different evil.

    I think Joker is one of the coolest villains, but not the most evil. The fact is, he is insane. He lacks any sort of conscience to tell him his acts are evil. So, he really can't control what he does.

    Despite the fact that I've never watched South Park, from what i've heard of Cartman, it can't be disputed how evil he is. And he seems to be perfectly sane while he does these things too. Now that...is true villainy.

    That would work only if you're talking about Giovanni. My vote goes to Light/Kira and The Joker. They are both smart, psychopathic(Light is in season 2) killers(or criminals) in their own way. Plus they have their own laughs:

    I would say Frieza from Dragonball Z. His portrayal was superb throughout the entire Namek Saga, but when he made appearances after, he just became mince meat for the rest of the series(Including the movies and in GT)

    I would agree with that if you were only talking about the first few seasons.

    But lately he really isn't evil at all.

    Yeah as a matter of fact he's been turning gay on us. The last evil thing he had done(or would've done if it actually happened) was kill Lois and take over the world.

    And of course, I gotta put the main bad guy from my favorite show out there, Simon Barsinister.

    Though I don't think he could go toe to toe with the Joker or anything.

    Still, if the prize was for most....bizarre....evil plots, Simon would totally get it.

    He certainly came up with some wacky ones. Especially in the comics.
