Top 10 Disney Villains


1. Jafar - Final Score: 35/40


Movie: Aladdin (1992)

Evil goal: Not content with his position as Royal Vizier, Jafar means to marry princess Jasmine and kill the Sultan, that he might replace him. Score7

Evildoings: Jafar attempts to kill Aladdin or have him killed several times. He also attempts to kill Jasmine, and enjoys watching Iago torture the Sultan. Score8

Craftiness: After finding out that Aladdin is the diamond in the rough he needs, Jafar has him arrested. Then, disguised as an old beggar, he tricks him into retrieving the lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Score: 9

Powers: Jafar has many magical artefacts in his possession, including a snake-headed staff, which he uses to hypnotise the Sultan. As the most powerful sorcerer in the world, he sends Aladdin, Abu and Carpet to the ends of the Earth and transforms himself into a giant cobra. As a genie, he has, as Aladdin puts it, "phenomenal cosmic powers". Score: 10

Henchmen/sidekicks: Jafar may at times treat his pet parrot badly, but for the most part they get along, as they both have a desire for power. Iago helps his master get what he wants, most notably when he steals the lamp from Aladdin. Score: +1
