Not only scary to children, these Disney villains can even make adults shudder thinking about what horrible things would happen if they existed in real life.

Judge Claude Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame


Monseigneur Claude Frollo can be considered one of the most fearful Disney villains, as in both Victor Hugo's original 'Hunchback of Notre Dame' and the adapted animated film, he wanted to burn Esmeralda alive. Although he had a crush on the beautiful Romanian, the teachings of the church imbued in Frollo made him think that it was a sin, and that Esmeralda was a witch who seduced him. The scene of Frollo singing 'Hellfire', when he faced the devil in his soul, is one of the darkest scenes in Disney history.

Cruella De Vil - 101 Dalmatians


There's no villain as crazy as Cruella De Vil. She is the kind of character that actually scares you in real life. Thinking about her plan alone is already disturbing: catch 101 dalmatians, then skin them to make a jacket. Ew! Before that, she was even "famous" for turning the skin of poor animals into fashionable clothes.

Man - Bambi


The villain in this movie has no name. More precisely, the viewer could not see the face of this character. That makes Man - Human become more fearful, when his evil deeds can come from any person in real life. Not only taking the life of Bambi's mother, Man also burned the forests, destroying the habitats of animals. It can be said with a hunting rifle, he spread destruction wherever he went.

Scar - Lion King


Not only joining the hyenas to backstab the lion king Mufasa and take over the throne, the wicked Scar also caused his nephew, Simba, to think that the blame was on him. Clever but full of resentment, Scar was jealous with all the glory and affection that the animals give his brother. Envy is dangerous. That's one of the movie's lesson.

The Horned King - The Black Cauldron


Black Cauldron is a lesser-known Disney's animated film, based on an episode in the series of books of the same name by writer Lloyd Alexander. The Horned King with a skull instead of a face and his long horns was one of the reasons many parents boycotted the movie when it was released in 1985. He was literally scary, unlike many other Disney villains. This magical lord wants to possess the black cauldron from the main character, because this will help him summon an immortal army and rule the world.

Maleficent - Sleeping Beauty


Unlike the kind-hearted fairy in Maleficent (2014), this animated version of 'The 13th Fairy' was an arrogant, self-proclaimed "Mistress of all Evil" and led an army of creepy monsters. In the climax at the end of the film, she also transformed into a giant dragon to attack Prince Phillip, when she realized he could lift the curse on Princess Aurora.

Jafar - Aladdin


Being erudite and cunning, Jafar spent years persuading the Islamic King to let him marry Princess Jamine so that he can take the throne. Jafar became even more dangerous when he used the wishes to become a powerful magician, then forced the princess to become his wife. In an instant, he became Disney's most powerful villain, with his last wish to turn himself into a ferocious genie.

Chernabog - Fantasia


Fantasia is a musical animated work divided into eight short films, and though only appearing in the film 'Night on Bald Mountain', Chernobog has become infamous among Disney's fans. In a scene, the giant devil sat on a mountain with its large wings blackening the sky. Where his claws ripped through the air, corpses and spirits came out one after the other, dancing and singing. Chernobog represents the darkness, based on the God of Darkness in the religion of the Slavic people.

The Evil Queen - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves


What is more frightening than a stepmother who wants to eat the heart of her husband's daughter? When the Magic Mirror predicted that Snow White would soon be the most beautiful person in the world, the Evil Queen was determined to get rid of the beauty. She also turned into a hideous old woman to make the princess eat a poisonous apple.
