While a main character in a horror movie should have enough distinct personality traits to interest audiences, and minor characters should be compelling as well, a scary film is only as strong as its villain. From serial killers to supernatural forces, these characters are so dark, evil, and dangerous that fans will never forget them. Reddit users have shared their favorite villains in horror movies, from a memorable character in an anthology film to several villains from popular, legendary franchises. No matter what their motive, these villains can be appreciated for their terrifying appearances and ability to enlighten audiences. The reveal of Sam is a brilliant one and one of the best moments in this celebrated horror anthology movie. While he seems to be a kid who is trick or treating and wearing a costume, it turns out that he's much more sinister and disturbing. Sam looks like a pumpkin and is actually an evil villain who wants to make sure that everyone is behaving themselves on Halloween. One Redditor said that a favorite horror movie villain is "Michael Myers" from the Halloween franchise.
39;s also a picture perfect portrait of a classic villain.
There are many scary Michael Myers murders in Halloween, and many horror fans would say that he makes for a memorable villain because he doesn't show any feeling at all. The way that Michael stalks the main characters and especially the way that he walks around the neighborhood in the first movie is terrifying. There also doesn't seem to be a way to win against Michael, making every new film in the franchise a wild and scary adventure. One Redditor posted that many people are "terrified of clowns" thanks to Pennywise from the It miniseries and 2017 movie. It's definitely true that for many people, clowns are something to be fearful of, and Pennywise seems to know that, too, as he takes a horrible kind of pleasure in scaring and killing kids. As one of the most famous horror movie characters, Freddy Krueger has been scaring audiences in A Nightmare On Elm Street for a long time. While the movie has so many memorable parts, from strong characters like Nancy, it's also a picture perfect portrait of a classic villain. One Redditor said that Freddy is one of the greatest horror movie villains because no one can get away from a killer who targets dreams. The concept of Ghostface is brilliant as they change in each movie and they also have a new motive for murder.
39;s mask works perfectly and makes it impossible not to pay attention to him.
It's also intelligent that each Ghostface is connected to the original story and to Sidney, and the reveals are always exciting and interesting. The Saw movies are some of the darkest of the horror genre, and that's all thanks to Jigsaw. Since he likes to play games with people and see if they're going to die or survive, it's hard to imagine a more terrifying killer. Reddit user JacobasNile said that Jigsaw is "diabolical" and "his voice sends chills down my spine." Without Jigsaw, it is unlikely that the franchise would have such an impact on the horror genre or would feel so unforgettable. Each Jason in Friday the 13th is scary in their own way, and in order for a horror movie villain to make a huge impression on audiences, they need to have a distinct look. Jason's mask works perfectly and makes it impossible not to pay attention to him. With the newest movie in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, it's a good time to revisit what fans like about Leatherface. Leatherface's appearance, writing, "There's just something timeless about his look too with the masks, movement and chainsaw." The villain definitely stands out amongst other classic ones and it's hard to forget how evil and determined Leatherface is. Reddit user TempleToons said that "Pinhead" is a favorite horror movie character who is evil, and many do find the Hellraiser villain to be horrifying. Pinhead is a Cenobite, a human who became a demon, and fans of the franchise have gotten to know him well while realizing just how terrible he is. Audiences learn a lot about Pinhead's backstory which makes him feel like a layered character. From the best quotes in The Silence of the Lambs to how horrifying it is to imagine being in a room with Hannibal, it's impossible to forget about Hannibal. His mask is especially disturbing and makes an impression.
However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
