Now I’ve Seen Everything listed here a few villains who stole everyone’s hearts.
1. Vecna, Stranger Things
Played by Jamie Campbell Bower, the main antagonist of Stranger Things’ season 4, Vecna, quickly left its mark on the series and its fandom.

And with Bower leading it, it’s impossible not to claim it as a hot villain.
2. Maleficent, Maleficent
Angelina Jolie is not only the hot villain in Maleficent, but she is also one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses. In this Disney film, she plays Maleficent, the malevolent fairy, and she is portrayed in the darkest, most charming light possible. Those cheekbones, her long black clothing, light eyes, and bold red lips are the distinguishing features that make this character even more appealing.
3. Tyler Durden, Fight Club
Fight Club is one of the most well-known movies from the 1990s. Tyler Durden, the narrator’s alter ego, is played by Brad Pitt, and that’s all we need to know about him to consider him the hot bad guy. Tyler is ferocious and extravagant, and while he may not be a woman’s ideal man, his dark gaze, coupled with his iconic red jacket, has won the hearts of many women.
4. Tommy Shelby, Peaky Blinders
As the leader of a criminal gang, Thomas Shelby from the show Peaky Blinders is unmatched when it comes to his manipulation skills, as well as his survival instincts. But this hot baddy came to life thanks to Cillian Murphy’s undeniable ability to create realistic performances plus his own unbelievable good looks.
5. Loki, Marvel Cinematic Universe
Throughout the Marvel Saga, there have been many hot baddies, but only a few have been as well-liked, and have been able to pique the audience’s interest, as Loki. One of the most prominent antagonists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, played by the stunning Tom Hiddleston, has won many hearts with his charming and charismatic appearance, which is appropriate for the most heinous villains in movies.
6. Harley Quinn, DC Extended Universe
Margot Robbie gave her all in her portrayal of Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad, and she undoubtedly created an iconic and hot villain. Her red lips with her fuchsia-blue ponytails are her distinguishing features. Margot Robbie’s depiction of Harley is so convincing that her Halloween costume has surpassed the traditional nurse and witch costumes.
7. Joker, The Dark Knight
Widely recognized as one of Heath Ledger’s most iconic roles, Dark Knight’s Joker is in a league of its own when it comes to the greatest villains of all-time. The character’s twisted sense of humor and psychotic tendencies were perfectly portrayed by Ledger, whose natural charm catapulted this version of Joker straight into the hot villains category.
8. Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter (Film Series)
In the Harry Potter franchise, there have been many hot bad guys worth admiring, like Tom Riddle’s handsome teenage version of Voldemort, but none as foxy as Draco Malfoy, played by Tom Felton. Despite his bad-boy behavior, many series fans adore Draco’s blonde hair and green eyes, which give him the appearance of a fairy tale prince, which he definitely is not.
9. Poison Ivy, Batman & Robin
Uma Thurman is not only a magnificent and versatile actress, but she is also a dazzling woman who played the popular and hot movie character, Poison Ivy, in Batman & Robin. With a comb of her venomous kiss and lethal temperament, the appealing Poison Ivy has undoubtedly spread her poison to bring all men to their knees.
10. Damon Salvatore, The Vampire Diaries
In real life, coming across a vampire would terrify us, but some vampires aren’t all that horrible in the end, and Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries, starring Ian Somerhalder, is unquestionably our favorite. Piercings and a dismal haze, combined with biting sarcasm, make him a hot baddy, and we can’t blame Elena Gilbert for falling for someone like him.
11. Cruella de Vil, 101 Dalmatians
Glenn Close’s interpretation of Cruella de Vil for Disney’s adaption of its own childhood classic, 101 Dalmatians, is stitched into the minds of anyone who’s ever laid eyes on the movie. Although the character doesn’t waste a second to prove why “evil” is in its name, all her glamour plus Close’s natural beauty gave her the title of hot villain.
12. Madison Lee, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle
Demi Moore is attractive in any role she takes on, but playing the hot villain is a natural fit for her. In Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Demi plays Madison Lee, a former angel who is also a formidable opponent. Demi looks fantastic in the film, with her jaw-dropping physique emerging from the waves.
