Obviously Vader.

I like Scorpius, a much more twisted bad guy who isn't always pure evil and isn't always wrong.

I'm going with Jack the Ripper from Time after Time. David Warner did a great, over-the-top gig, as did McDowell, but it was really horrific!!!

Ming from the FLASH GORDON movie.

For all his iconic presence, Vader is just a henchman, and the prequels made him out to be a misguided twit at best, a raging asshole at worst. Palpatine is the real villain; he just ain't cool to look at.

Gul Dukat is in the top 10.

Re: scifi's BAD GUY!!!

Vader, I think, is the obvious choice.

But, there's also the Daleks, Yul Brenner from Westworld, Dracula (in his various incarnations), the Goa'uld from Stargate, the Borg, the Reavers, the Smoking Man from X-Files, The Master from Dr. Who, Servalan from Blake's 7, and, of course, the shark from Jaws.

Re: scifi's BAD GUY!!!

In visual media, i'd personally pick Babylon 5's Mr. Morden. He doesnt need to go around wearing black armour, or hacking up the good guys. He's a villain that manages to convince you to do the evil yourself, all the while with a smile on his face.

In print, i'd probably have to choose Horus from the Warhammer 40,000 setting, a villain whose actions still have a direct influence on events 10,000 years after he died.

Vader, by a light year. Or a parsec. Whichever you prefer.

Re: scifi's BAD GUY!!!

I gotta go with Scorpius too. He was always so believable to me because the whole show could have been done from his point of view and it would have worked. Just made him a more believable bad guy to me because you could see where he was coming from.
