    No odd ob? No baron samedi? Silva was Not even close to as good as Blofeld, Jaws, Goldfinger, nor Trevelyan.

    • loothor

      Damn fine points. Also no Rosa Klebb…. I’d have to put all 3 of Odd Job, Baron Samedi and Rosa Klebb in my top 10.

  • Otto T

    Silva and Le Chiffre ?!!?!? WHERE THE HELL IS JOE DON BAKER?!?!

    • Art R

      Never mind Joe Don Baker since he then played a good guy in 2 movies! Where is Rosa Klebb (played by actress Lotte Lenya whose name should have been a Bond girl’s name)? Other notable characters missing are: Odd Job, Grant, Bambi & Thumper, Gobinda, Miranda Frost, Karl Stromberg, Kananga AKA Mr. Big, Blofeld (Telly Savalas), Hugo Drax, Elektra King, and Maximilian Largo (Adolpho Celi OR Klaus Maria Brandauer)

  • Mackey

    How about Christoph Waltz as Franz Oberhauser ?

    • Bian Holmes

      he is blofeld

  • ProtoGeek Productions

    Oddjob?

  • nardog_4

    How the fuck is LeChiffre winning? Did people really enjoy him slapping Bond’s balls around that much?

    • Lucas Herrera

      LeChiffre was the most refreshing bond villain because he was so different from the usual over the top, stroking a cat villains. He was a desperate man, owing money to people even more dangerous then him, causing LeChiffre to act out of that desperation by doing whatever he could to get that money, which included “slapping Bond’s balls” as you so colorfully put it.

      • disqus_5REBqsJIAs

        How does one stoke a cat? With coal bites??
        Then they must truly be villainous,,,

        • Lucas Herrera

          Haha just noticed that. Well it has been corrected now lol.

        • Henry B.

          No, bituminous.

  • Bian Holmes

    Really? Blofeld should be on the top considering he is the most ‘hard-to-kill’ villain on bond movies franchise even the book it self!? I mean come on- have u seen all the movies?

    • Bian Holmes

      just my opinion tho

      • Henry B.

        Thanks for clearing that up.

  • Steve Rusk

    Who put this list together? Someone who doesn’t know the difference between villains and henchmen? Someone who doesn’t know Bond movies? Blofeld evaded Sean Connery’s Bond in four movies.Then George Lazenby’s. Wheres Stromberg or Drax? Why do us Bond trivia purists waste our time?

  • Spencer Bean

    How in heaven’s name is Le Chiffre winning? He did so little in Casino Royale except for fund the Lord’s Resistance Army in an opening scene, orchestrate a failed bombing of a plane, play poker against James Bond and fail to successfully poison him, torture the guy by whipping his balls, and get killed before the second act was over!

    • Michael P

      Well acted and complicated villain with a great design. Who cares if he was completely useless in the end. He made for some intriguing poker which is not an easy thing to accomplish, no matter how much you enjoy playing it yourself. Personally, Silva is my favorite, but Le Chiffre is a close second. Not to ignore the old villains, but Craig’s Bond has had some truly great antagonists.

      • Spencer Bean

        I guess I never could get into Casino Royale. It just didn’t leave any impression on me.

    • Californication

      Because it’s voted on by millennials who’ve never seen Goldfinger.

  • sou só seu?

    I was about to vote for Jaws, but when I saw the list, I just couldn’t pick one.
    They’re all great!
    And there are so many missing.

    • Pacemaker4

      I gave robert shaw the nod in the end.

  • BJ

    Franz Sanchez gets my vote. There is no Bond villain more evil and sadistic. Don’t believe me? Go watch License to Kill again.

  • Californication

    Goldfinger: “No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!”

  • Rooby Doo

    Well, it couldn’t possibly be more obvious that about half the responders have never seen anyone other than Daniel Craig as Bond.

    • Lee

      Word, perspectives that don’t reach farther back than the Harry Potter movies.

  • NothingIsTrueAll_IsPermitted

    Bet Xenia gets at least half of the male vote in the end LOL. Not the most long lived villain or villainess, nor the most challenging in the Bond universe.

    But you gotta admit fellas, if she was out to get you, you’d at least be very tempted to let her!

  • My Vote goes for Le Chiffre, I could take any torture except getting my balls crushed and I love poker even tough I have no idea how to play it xD

  • Colt

    I can’t frickin believe Odd Job isn’t on this list!!! Odd Job and Jaws are probably the two most recognizable Bond villains. Oh well, Alec Trevelyan (006) is here and he’s the best Bond villain anyway, but still, this is an “odd” list.

  • al_frick

    Is everyone 15 years old on this website??? Le Chiffre???

    How about Christopher Walken? He was just the right amount of crazy.

    • Grant B.

      He was a cartoon in a terrible movie.

  • You Got Caged

    Lol, it’s either; people have very very very bad taste, or they don’t watch movies that are older than them, that’s why is LeChifree winning. Goldfinger, not just one of the very best Bond movies, it also had the best villains of the whole franchise, and obviously Dr. Sam Loomis as Blofeld.

    • Sergeant343

      I always preferred Telly Savalas’ more imposing performance.

      • You Got Caged

        I agree that Telly Savalas was better. Anyways, I can’t deny Pleasence was good. But still, bis Blofeld isn’t as memorable as his Halloween character.

  • Sergeant343

    Where is Emilo Largo, Rosa Klebb, and Karl Stromberg at? For some newer ones, how about Renard and Elliot Carver. There are others as well, but people have already mentioned them.

  • Scott

    Le Chiffre was perhaps the most refreshing Bond Villain of all time. He helped resurrect a stagnant franchise. You didn’t have to wait to meet him in the end. James Bond has to play him in a high-stakes poker game. They battle it out, mentally, physically, and Le Chiffre had a humanity to him that many Bond villains didn’t have, i.e. his traits of cowardice and uneasiness.

    So please, I know odd job shoulda been on here, but I’ve seen every Bond film in the series, and
    Le Chiffre was my favorite. I’ve been watching the Bond films ever since I can remember.

    People have different opinions. Sorry if you get butthurt by them because you’re some sort of Bond hipster purist.

    Goldfinger was the most iconic in my mind, but I prefer watching Mads Mikkelsen’s villain.

    Great villain. Kills it in the Hannibal series as well.

    • Scott

      Silva garnering any votes though, especially over Goldfinger or Jaws, is just completely ridiculous.

  • FA

    I have seen every Bond movie. And Silva is the best for me, followed by Dr. No and Goldfinger. That “look upon your work, Mother” scene alone does it for me. It was the sadness of the character and the magnificence of the performance by the great Javier Bardem i guess. But thats just my opinion.

  • roundthings

    Xenia. Why? Killer legs
