    Justice for my guy Javert!

    Ever watch a movie with a hero and a villain and stuff, and you KNOW you're supposed to be rooting for the good guy...but instead you're rooting for the bad guy?

    Well, recently Reddit user dr_acula_boo posed this query to the users of the site: "Which was the movie villain, evil character, or monster that made you say, 'F*ck the hero, I'm with the bad guy?'" I'm not gonna lie, some valid points were made.


    Here are some of the best responses:

    1. The Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas:

    Universal Pictures

    "The townsfolk of Whoville were prejudice and drove the Grinch into isolation. Bullies are not made in a vacuum!"

    2. Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time:


    "He was smart, tricky, beautifully manipulative, and had a solid backstory that justified almost all of his actions."


    3. Shere Khan from The Jungle Book:

    Walt Disney

    "He wanted to murder Mowgli because he was afraid that Mowgli would burn the jungle down. Mowgli then proceeded to burn the jungle down."


    4. Ice Man from Top Gun:

    Paramount Pictures

    "He was right, Maverick is dangerous."


    5. Hades from Hercules:

    Walt Disney

    "He's just doing his job, man!"

    6. The Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz:

    Lowe's, Inc.

    "We hate her because she looks a bit gothy. But ditzy Dorothy killed her sister and went on to meddle in stuff that was none of her business. I’d be annoyed, too."


    7. Roy Batty from Blade Runner:

    Warner Bros.

    "There may have been blood on his hands, but Batty only went for those directly involved with the Replicants or that were pursuing him. At the end of the day, he was just looking for answers from his creator."


    8. Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants:


    "I mean, he lives next to and works with — no offense — one of the most annoying creatures in the sea. I'd be a curmudgeon, too."

    9. Magneto from X-Men:

    20th Century Fox

    "Xavier and Magneto both have the same motives, but their life experiences drive them to completely opposite means to achieve those ends."


    10. Tom from Tom & Jerry:


    "Jerry was a fucking asshole."


    11. King Kong from King Kong:

    Universal Pictures

    "Dude's minding his own business, living on a tropical island, and men show up, capture, and enslave him. Fuckers deserved everything they got."


    12. Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb:

    Disney Channel

    "He had a rough childhood, he is a great dad to Vanessa, and he never gives up, even when his Inators blow up. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is a good character."


    13. Ryan and Sharpay Evans from High School Musical:

    Disney Channel

    "They deserved better than to get upstaged by Troy and Gabriella."


    14. Benny from Rent:

    Sony Pictures

    "He offered all his friends, struggling bohemians in NYC, free rent in exchange for canceling Maureen's protest."


    15. Darth Vadar from Star Wars:


    "The prequels made him a lot more sympathetic."


    16. Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2:

    Sony Pictures / Marvel Studios

    "I think Doc Ock is pretty sympathetic. He's a genius who wants to use his innovation to help people, but Oscorp just uses him as a moneymaker until he snaps."


    17. Principal Rooney from Ferris Bueller's Day Off:

    Paramount Pictures

    "Ferris Bueller is a dick."


    18. Gellert Grindelwald from Fantasic Beasts and Where to Find Them:

    Warner Bros.

    "Honestly, he has some solid points about how much muggles suck."


    19. Finally, Javert from Les Misérables :

    Universal Pictures

    "Javert's unwavering belief in upholding the law is the driving force behind his actions throughout the entirety of the movie. In Javert's eyes, Jean Valjean is a criminal for breaking his parole and it is his duty to bring all criminals to justice. I can get on board with that."
