Top 10 Video Game Villains

9) Bowser

This terrifying turtle is the undisputed King of the Koopas. He's also been crowned by the Guinness Book of World records as the ‘Greatest Video Game Villain of All Time' so his making this list was pretty much obligatory. He missed out on the top berth here so if I'm kidnapped anytime in the near future I think we'll know who to blame.

The Koopa King nearly always hides the Princess away while he creates elaborate and visually stunning death traps manned by an army of minions. When you eventually do fight Bowser, you realize that you may be a bit in over your head. The Koopa King towers over you, carries an enormous shell covered in razor sharp spikes and breathes jets of flame. There's a good chance you'll be crushed, burned to a crisp, or meet some other terrible end.

Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach upwards of a dozen times in various maniacal plots. His villainous persistence guarantees him a spot on any serious greatest video games villains list.
