Wily didn't make the robot masters, he reprogrammed Dr.Lights robots.
I'd say the worst ever villain has to be Bowser. You think Dr. Wily is bad about insanity, Bowser's been at it more times than anyone would care to count; and his end goal every time was to make Princess Peach his. That's all he wanted, just to go out on a date with Peach.
Oh wow all three of them are fairly good choices, and I do like Brent's reasoning. My personal worst villain of all time would be Black Doom. :P
Matter of fact the only way Saint Ajora could make a come back is in FFXIV arr and hopefully its not as sad as her return in tactics
I say saint ajora from final fantasy tactics lion war, sets up this plan to get revived and once she does revive she dies what a sad attempt.
the music was good and the game was fun but really all she did was setup her demise who does that lol
Worst Villain? Bellum from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. He's just a colorful and less interesting version of a generic Cthulhu ripoff.
The worst ever villain has to be Abaddon from Darksiders 2. He was a member of the same race as War and Death but survived being wiped out by the 4 Horsemen because Death had a shred of mercy for him. This, for some reason, made him corrupted and somehow made him spread his corruption everywhere for....reasons.
We never get a reason for what exactly is the corruption or what his goals are in the game, even at the end. Speaking of the end, his boss fight is pathetic. The guy is the last boss of the game but I took him down in less than 90 seconds with almost no damage taken. There were minibosses in that game that were harder than he was!
So for not really having a reason behind his actions and being a total pushover, I gotta give it to Abaddon.
Personally, I think they overlooked quite a few things with Lysandre...
For example, Team Flares goal was to destroy all Pokemon and Humans that are not part of team flare. This was because Lysandre believed that the world could never change, and thus the only way to save it was to reduce the number of people so that only people who are part of team flare will live, because they would all work together. Also, he only dies in Y, whereas in X he apparently became immortal... not that it would help him much, being trapped under a pile of rubble. And also he might have made the player character and their friends immortal as well according to some things that are said by Sycamore later. But I digress.
Lysandre saw a world doomed to destroy itself, so he intended to destroy it prematurely and rebuild it. Also worth noting is that Lysandre cried about destroying all the pokemon. All in all, Lysandre at the very least made more sense than Maxie and Archie. I mean they are much worse leaders. Maxie: I want to Cause a drought on all of the world because i dont like water! or Archie: I want to flood the world because I love the ocean! The hell kind of plans are those? Lysandre by contrast makes much more sense.
I'm thinking Bowser has a shot, just for all his stupid oversights. Why leave the axe? Why not toss it away or at least weild it? And if you have this hyper powerful magician, why not use his power to grant you a huge ton of abilities, crush Mario's house in his sleep and fly out of there?
How does James do it every time? That's the funniest analysis of Wart I could ever imagine.
They said it and I've been thinking it ever since I played Pokemon Y: Team Flare is lame!
Worst Villian as in "Worst Concept" to me is Dr. Weil from Mega Man Zero. He is a War Criminal, responsible for almost completely wiping out humanity and turning most of the planet into an uninhabitable wasteland.
But he was stopped, before the game starts. And how do they punish him? By putting him into a suit that will continuously regenerate his body so that he cannot die, upload the memories of his atrocities to a computer housed in the suit, so that he shall forever witness the misery he caused and then they just banish him to the wasteland he created.
Now I'm not pro Death Penalty, but this motherfucker does not deserve to life LET ALONE BE GRANTED IMORTALITY! That's right, because of his suit that will always keep him healed, he does not age and is also basically indestructible. This is "The Mummy"-Curse kind of stupid in terms of punishment. Just like Imotep basically was turned into a supernatural killing machine for his crimes, so is Dr. Weil "punished" by being put into a suit that will prolong his life indefinatly. This just begs to backfire. Come on, even if you don'T kill the bastard, at least put him in a cell or something. Or just screw the whole "imortality suit" crap and banish him to the wasteland with just a loincloth! Anything but this!
Every single hardcore Nihilistic villain throughout all of history. Seriously, Nihilism has to be the dumbest philosophical view ever, and giving a villain the mindset usually creates a characters who angsts on and on about how, 'nothing deserves to exist'. The ideology more often than not just works as a crappy excuse for making someone the player has to stop from blowing up the world, and a shitty attempt at making a villain with 'depth'. The only 2 Nihilistic villains I've ever really liked are Count Bleck from Super Paper Mario and The White from Shin Megami Tensei IV.
I mainly liked Bleck because his past relationship at least gave him a reason to want to destroy all of existence, so he wasn't really Nihilistic so much as he was angry about his lost lover. Even then he was quickly overshadowed by the much more interesting and delightfully evil Dimentio. As for The White, they were great specifically because Shin Megami Tensei IV pretty much made fun of them by having a computer A.I that isn't even supposed to have emotions explain why Nihilism as a concept is stupid.
Vigo the Carpathian from Ghostbusters II. You never fight him. His entire "Boss Fight" is just getting the Ghostbusters to the end of the stage one at a time, and they just slime the painting, and the game is over. By watching the movie, there was potential for a very good boss fight with Vigo. Even when you get a game over you see him jump out of the painting in epic fashion that could have been turned into a boss fight. But no, just slime the picture, and he's done.
Also, I just found out you can stretch this comment box while you're typing by holding the square with two lines on the bottom right. That's a pretty cool feature!
