    I Ranked 36 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!

    When it comes to Disney movies, the villains often have much more interesting stories to tell than the heroes do. I mean, why else would Maleficent get a sequel when the live action Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast didn't?

    However, not every Disney villain is created equal. For every Maleficent, there's a Mr. Smee. As a lifelong Disney movie lover, I feel qualified to rank them from least to most powerful.
