Well, the people have spoken – and we are now at round 3 of the Disney villains tournament!
There were a lot of close match-ups this time around, but there were also some upsets I wasn’t expecting! This isn’t the final 8 that I would have predicted, but it’s still pretty solid. The first one really threw me, to be honest. Yzma beating Maleficent? For many people I know that Maleficent is the first person they thing of when they think of the epitome of “Disney villain.” I guess it just goes to show that people really appreciate humor when it comes to Disney villains.
I was also very surprised to see Dr. Facilier beat out Ursula! I personally love Dr. Facilier (he’s one of my favorite villains), but I know Ursula is very popular and a favorite of a lot of people. The race between Mother Gothel and Lady Tremaine was really close. While I personally find Mother Gothel a more terrifying villain (she’s very psychologically manipulating), Lady Tremaine is pretty evil as well. Again I was a little surprised to see Hades beat out a more classic Disney villain, but again I think the humor really plays a big part.
And it only gets harder from here. Jafar or Scar? How can I possibly choose? Frollo vs. Hades is a hard match-up for me as well – I find Frollo to be one of the most evil villains out there, possibly my top choice for “most evil,” and yet Hades is a great character and has the comedy element going for him. There are some tough decisions to be made, and I’m curious to see how the votes go.
