No fairytale heroine would be complete without a worthy adversary. Who is your favorite fairytale villain? Who stands out the most?
This is our list of the top five villains -
1) Maleficient - While the recent films have painted her as a hero rather than a villain, there is no doubt that Maelficient makes a great foe. She is powerful, strong and she can turn into a dragon!
2) The Evil Queen - The original Disney villain, she is vain, heartless and wants her precious stepdaughter dead. Though she doesn't get the ending she deserves in Disney, she does lose when Snow White is awoken by the prince and they marry.
3) Ursula - The sea witch claims to want to help poor mermaids to find their bliss, but we know she likes to trick them and keep them for herself. Ruthless and cunning, she is brought down by Prince Eric when he spears her with the broken hull of his ship.
4) Lady Tremaine - She keeps her stepdaughter as a slave, making her clean the house and wear rags, but Cinderella gets the last laugh. An ambitious woman, she is all about appearances.
5) Cruella De Ville - She turns puppies into fashion items, does it get anymore evil than that? A fashion icon, she has no trouble in resorting to extreme measures to look good.
