The bad guys look better when they’re made of CGI. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 Pixar villains.

For this list, we’re looking at villains from Pixar films only, so no Disney allowed.

#10: Henry J. Waternoose III
“Monsters, Inc.” (2001)

He’s the CEO of Monsters Inc., he’s a kidnapper who lives in your closet, and he’s a seriously scary man… monster… thing! Scuttling across our screens, he is what’d you call a crab on steroids! With 6 legs and 5 eyes, he populates your wildest nightmares. And while he may have pedigree and he may have power, Henry J. Waternoose III will never have Boo! He scares but doesn’t care – and that’s what we’d call a monster of a monster!

#9: Chick Hicks
“Cars” (2006)

Hicks is a stock car racer with a chip on his shoulder – or his windshield. When it comes to sports car racing, he’s a serial second-placer that doesn’t play fair. A circuit charlatan, a trackside trickster – his attack on Strip ‘The King’ Weathers is nothing short of treason! He’s known as ‘The Runner Up’, but he only made 9th place on our list.

#8: Darla Sherman
“Finding Nemo” (2003)

She’s young, but she’s not fun – especially if you’re a fish! When Darla visits her uncle for a routine check up, the aquarium turns as cold as fresh sushi. This girl is a shaker of bags and a killer of fish. She’s the dentist’s niece with an evil smile who deserves a lollipop... that should be jabbed in her eye. Cross your fingers for karma – her teeth might just fall out!

#7: Stinky Pete
“Toy Story 2” (1999)

Known as The Prospector, this toy puts the doom and gloom into the playroom. He’s a schemer and a scoundrel! The problem is, he’s never been played with... Which makes him mint-condition and museum-bound, since he doesn’t know any other way. A one-time member of Woody’s Roundup, Stinky Pete’s now dusty and deluded. A wise ol’ man with a bad ol’ heart, he’s forgotten a toy’s true purpose – and has been shelved at number 7.

#6: Charles F. Muntz
“Up” (2009)

This guy had it all! ‘Adventure was out there’ and he found it, he flogged it, and eventually... he failed it. Charles Muntz was a national hero, but when he was found out as a phoney, he fled to Paradise Falls for a very long time. Though his doggie police help him hunt the Beast of Paradise Falls, Muntz has ironically turned into that himself. He’s a baddie with a blimp and he’s our number 6.

#5: Sid Phillips
“Toy Story” (1995)

Andy’s toy-torturing neighbor Sid is the original Pixar bad guy. He spent his childhood performing cruel, and really kinda complex surgery on his playthings. When he’s not disturbing us at the operation table, he’s strapping bangers onto cast-offs and blowing them into the bargain bucket. He wants the wheels to your toy car, and the wings to your toy spaceman. Sid hasn’t got a thirst for blood; he’s got a thirst for fluff. He terminates toys, and no teddy bear is safe!

#4: Hopper
“A Bug’s Life” (1998)

What do you get when you put Kevin Spacey’s voice in a grisly exoskeleton? That’s right, a first class villain! A Bug’s Life, A Thug’s Life, it’s all the same to Hopper! He’s the tiny little tyrant with a very big voice. He has a grip on the grasshoppers and dreams of ant annihilation. An all-round bad bug, he’ll crush a colony of little guys to get what he wants.

#3: Randall Boggs
“Monsters, Inc.” (2001) and “Monsters University” (2013)

All monsters should be scary, but they don’t need to be this bad! Randall is creepy, he’s crawly and, heaven help us, he’s camouflaged! He could be under your bed, over your shoulder, or in your bathroom while you shower! You just don’t know he’s there until he’s slithered up your spine. As slippery in character as he is in person – he’s the lizard you like to loathe!

#2: Lots-O’-Huggin’ Bear
“Toy Story 3” (2010)

He’s purple, he’s plush... and he’s not a predictable villain, but he sure is prime-time! Don’t be deceived by his cute-and-cuddly image, Lotso is bad... if he had any, he’d be bad to the bone! A toy with trauma, he was once forgotten by his owner and has never gotten over it. He lives to get even, and he’ll step on any man, woman, or toy to do so. He’s a terrible teddy and a virtuoso villain.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Mor’du ”Brave” (2012)
- Auto ”WALL-E” (2008)
- Skinner “Ratatouille” (2007)
- Dean Abigail Hardscrabble “Monsters University” (2013)

#1: Syndrome
“The Incredibles” (2004)

Computer-generated bad guys don’t come any better than this! Buddy Pine was originally a super-hero suck-up with an impossible dream. He eventually became Syndrome, a glorified geek with impossible hair. What he lacked in super-powers, he made up for with cruel intentions. A villain-slash-inventor, he built things up to break them down, and to feed his ego in the process. He’s insane, he’s sharp, he’s Syndrome, our villainous victor!
