The Baddest TV Bad Guy Ever (VOTE NOW!)

Every good story has to have a good villain. Think about it. Who is more memorable: Frank Underwood or that dumb guy he screws over? Y'know, the one with the fancy job and circular office?

The great thing about villains is that every bad guy is bad in his own way. They're all special snowflakes. Some bad guys do terrible things for a good cause. Walternate tries to destroy a universe to protect his own. Some bad guys enjoy killing people. Hannibal likes to have unique menus for his fancy dinner parties. Some bad guys just want to cut your dick off and then give you a sponge bath. You do you, Ramsay.

We've compiled all of the most memorable baddies from popular live action TV shows. Now you get to decide who is the baddest of the bad. Choosing between the lesser (or worse?) of two evils has never been more fun!

Get voting!
