    I Ranked 33 Disney Villains From “A Toddler Could Beat You In A Fight” To “This Is A Job For The Avengers”

    If baby Rapunzel decided to give herself a haircut, it would've been over for Mother Gothel!

    Even the most casual Disney fan knows that the villains are often more interesting than the heroes. I mean, why else would Maleficent have such a passionate fanbase?

    However, not every Disney villain is created equal. For every Maleficent, there's a Mr. Smee. As a self-identified Disney Adult™, I feel qualified to rank them from least to most powerful.
