Top Ten Tuesday (3)

This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This weeks list is Top Ten Villains/ Criminals/ Other Nasties.  This week I'm counting down from least evil to most evil.

10. Kronos from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan- Kronos pretty much as half-bloods do all is dirty work for him, but he swallowed all of his children.  Um...that's evil.  Yeah it's evil!  It proves he's a heartless, all-powerful, immortal titan.  Good luck defeating him Percy.

9. Magpie from Inkheart by Cornelia Funke- This lady is crazy.  She's the bad guys right hand person, but she's the brains.  She's the one that knows when Meggie is lying, and she can see through Sliver Tongue's plans.  She turns herself into a bird.  EVIL.

8. Grandma from Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews-  this lady locks her own grandchildren in the attic, and calls them devils spawn.  She's a god fearing, semi-insane old lady that is going straight to hell.  Even though she "loves" God so much that she is willing to kill her own grandchildren because they are "evil".  I think this lady needs to realize who the real evil one is.

7. Taddeus Valentine from Mortal Engines by Paul Reeves- this guy enters the book as the main character's idol.  This young boy finally gets to meet his hero.  Then he is pushed down the garbage shoot that drops him outside the moving London by his hero.  Yeah!  I can just see the admiration in the young boy's eyes.

6. President Snow from Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins- Pretty self explanatory.  He kills 24 children each year, and anyone that stands in his way.  I'm glad that I'm not going to meet him.

5. Acheron Hades from Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde- He's the slipperiest guy on the top ten most wanted list, which is occupied only by him.  He can kill people without a second thought.  Magically disguise himself as an old lady (or anything else) and withstand bullets no matter how strong.  All he wants is to be known as the most evil man, even above Hades.  (This guy is number 5!)

4.   Sidorrio from Vampirates by Justin Somper- An evil vampirate (a vampire pirate) two things of evil in one evil package. 

3. Galbatorix from Eragon by Christoper Paolini- He'll live forever and he has an endless supply of magical beings (that are evil) at his disposale.  He can also ride a dragon.  That automatically makes him pretty bad-ass.  Eragon has the entire country after him because of this guy; a country that is starving and wasting away, but still an entire country!

2. Valentine from Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare- Again, self explanatory.  He experimented with is unborn children, turning his only son into a monster.  He can summon all the demons of the world.  But if you think that's not evil, whatever.

1.Voldemort from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling- DUH!!!   I don't need to explain this one to you but the flat nose should be a dead give away.


  1. "Acheron Hades"? With a blindingly obvious name like that, he'd better be evil.

  2. President Snow is making everyone's lists! :D

    Great to see a Jasper Fforde character on a list too!

  3. I plan to read Mortal Engines in 2011. It's good to know it has such an excellent bad guy!
