The version of Captain Hook who appears in the Disney animated film adaptation of Peter Pan is somewhat of a fool, prone to crying out for help as well as being called a codfish and having his clothes repeatedly ruined. This Captain Hook has the hook in place of his left hand instead of his right. In early development, the story department wrote their analysis of Hook's character: "He is a fop...Yet very mean, to the point of being murderous. This combination of traits should cause plenty of amusement whenever he talks or acts."
Frank Thomas was the directing animator of Hook. According to Disney's Platinum release bonus features, Hook was modeled after a Spanish King. One director insisted that Hook should be a darker villain with no comedic traits. Yet this would not work during the crocodile scenes. The animators realized he could not be truly evil, because of the children in the film that he would be threatening. The result is a "bad guy," but only to the point of matching Peter Pan.
Actor Hans Conried set the tone for Disney's interpretation of Hook, as he was the original voice for the Captain, as well as Mr. Darling in the same film. In addition Conried's acting skills were used, as he performed live-action reference for the two characters. In modern animation, Hook is voiced by Corey Burton.
Captain Hook is introduced in the animated film as a cunning, spoiled, sinister, frustrated man, plotting to trap Peter in his lair, but also a bit of a buffoon, hiding from the crocodile nicknamed 'Tick Tock' who took off his hand. He seeks revenge on Peter Pan for having fed the crocodile his hand amidst battle, and will keep his ship and its crew anchored in Never Land's waters until he finds the boy. Hook is a dangerous villain, without conscience, yet is dependent on his sidekick, Mr Smee. He is fairly cunning and has a bit of a taste for loopholes in contracts or deals — after he promises Tinker Bell that he will not lay a finger (or a hook) on Peter, he then lays a bomb in Peter's hideout, since he didn't say he wouldn't do that. When Peter defeats Hook, he begs for mercy and promises to leave Neverland forever. However, Hook tries to attack Peter again, only to be foiled. At the conclusion of the film, Hook is being chased by the crocodile off into the distance. Walt Disney insisted on keeping Hook alive, as he said: "The audience will get to liking Hook, and they won't want to see him killed."

Lady Tremaine is the main villain of Disney's Cinderella. She is Cinderella's very mean, rude, and selfish wicked stepmother, based on the character of the original fairy tale.
In the film Lady Tremaine marries a man that has a beautiful daughter Cinderella. She also has daughters named Anastasia and Drizella Tremaine. After Cinderella's father dies, Tremaine's evil hatred of Cinderella is revealed. Tremaine's daughters are jealous of Cinderella's beauty so the family then makes Cinderella serve them their meals, clean the house, sweep the floors, and all sorts of servant work. Cinderella wishes one day to marry the Prince, but then Tremaine forces her to do more work even though some of them were already done. Cinderella gets mail from the King for a Ball at the castle (because the King wants his son to marry so he can have grandchildren). Tremaine, Anastasia, and Drizella are excited but Tremaine tells Cinderella to get her work done so she can go, but she doesn't realize that Tremaine doesn't really mean it. After her work, Tremaine gets ready for the Ball, but Cinderella doesn't have anything to wear. Tremaine, Drizella, and Anastasia are jealous when they find out Cinderella is more pretty so they tear it up and leave for the Ball. At the Ball, the family looks at the lady the Prince is dancing with and Tremaine thinks she looks familiar (the lady is Cinderella, because her Fairy Godmother helped her get a pretty blue shiny dress and she got to go). The next day the Grand Duke is coming to see the Tremaines to see who fits the glass slipper. Tremaine realizes with Cinderella's voice that she was the one who danced with the Prince. She follows her upstairs and locks her in her room. Then the Duke arrives and then tries the slipper on Drizella and Anastasia but it doesn't fit. The Duke prepares to leave until Cinderella comes down (after her mice pets free her by grabbing Tremaine's key to the room) the stairs. Tremaine then trips the Duke and the slipper breaks. Tremaine grins as the Duke becomes upset, but Cinderella has the other slipper which proves that she was the one dancing with the Prince, much to Tremaine's dismay.
Lady Tremaine also acts as a major antagonist in the direct-to-video sequels, in one of these sequels she even gains the power of magic via stealing the Fairy Godmother's wand and starts to create her own horrific version of a "happy ever after" (which is more akin to a nightmare than a fantasy) - in the end she receives a fitting punishment for her misdeeds and becomes a servant at Cinderella's castle (this was actually an act of mercy by Cinderella, who didn't wish to see her stepmother put in jail, despite her deserving it due to her actions: which amounted to treachery).
Prince John is the primary antagonist of the 1973 Disney animated movie Robin Hood. He is a lion who usurped his brother, King Richard, and became King of England (though in reality he was only a stand-in ruler, who was looking after England in the abscence of his brother - who was fighting in the Crusades). He constantly taxes the poor of Nottingham for his own benefit and has a habit of sucking his thumb when he gets upset - he is aided in his scheming by the Sheriff Of Nottingham and his man-servant Sir Hiss, who he tends to abuse regularly.
When King Richard returned from the Crusades he had Prince John and his henchmen put to work breaking rocks as punishment for Prince John's unfair treatment of the people of Nottingham.
Sykes is the chief antagonist of the Disney animated movie, Oliver and Company: a modern-take on the Charles Dickens's story of Oliver Twist - Sykes is a loan shark who terrorizes Fagin, who has fallen victim to his wrath due to continually failing to pay his debt. When the stray kitten Oliver comes into contact with Fagin and his gang of canine thieves he also becomes ensnared in Fagin's plot to pay off Sykes.
However the plan backfires horribly on Fagin when a young girl named Jenny takes a special interest in Oliver, concerned when he leaves her care she heads to find him but is spotted by Sykes - who realizes she is from a wealthy family, he proceeds to kidnap her: informing a hapless Fagin his debt was now paid before driving away in his limo.
Oliver and his gang of friends, along with Fagin, pursue Sykes and rescue Jenny - this angers Sykes sufficiently for him to give chase in his limo - the chase is frantic and climaxes with Sykes driving his limo into the path of a moving train, which proceeds to hit the limo and kill Sykes in a fiery blaze.
Sykes was unusual for a Disney villain in the fact he was an ordinary human with no magical or supernatural abilities - his scheme was not grand and he was also generally without humor - being a dark and fairly serious character in keeping with his role as a dangerous criminal.
Sykes is also based loosely on Bill Sikes, the main villain of Oliver Twist, whom he shares his name with as well as his criminal tendencies.
Percival C. McLeach is a sociopathic poacher and the main villain in the 1990 Disney animated film, The Rescuers Down Under - motivated as much out of sadistic pleasure as he was greedy. McLeach sought to capture a rare eagle and was ruthless enough to use a young boy named Cody as bait in order to get what he desired. Unlike the comical Madame Medusa of the original film, McLeach was shown as a serious villain with almost no redeeming qualities and it was only through his defeat that the story could have a happy ending as he was so utterly psychotic that he was willing to feed Cody to a swarm of crocodiles once the boy had outlived his usefulness. McLeach was first introduced to Cody when the boy fell into a pit-trap, having befriended a rare and magnificiant eagle known as Marahute beforehand. The boy still had one of her feathers as a parting gift - which would prove to be a mistake as McLeach noticed the feather and decided to kidnap the boy to help him track down the eagle (though McLeach was also intending on kidnapping the boy regardless so as not to risk being found by the authorities).
McLeach proceeds to toss Cody's backpack to crocodiles to trick the rangers into believing the boy had been eaten by the animals and thus covering his tracks - meanwhile a hapless Cody is driven to McLeach's lair where he is soon put in a cage alongside a collection of rare and protected Australian wildlife, many of which are living in terrible conditions.
However, Cody is in luck as two mice from the Rescue Aid Society are soon sent to aid him, being none other than Bernard and Bianca, the heroes of the first film - upon arriving in Australia the two mice become aware of McLeach's true plan once they track him down.
Knowing that Cody was emotionally attached to the eagle, McLeach cruelly lied to the boy, telling him the eagle had been shot by another hunter and that nobody is around to guard her eggs - however this was an act and when a worried Cody runs off to find the eggs, McLeach follows in a large truck, he also brings along his lizard sidekick Joanna so that she can eat the eggs and thus ensure McLeach gets even more wealth via making Marahute the last of her kind.
McLeach proceeds to capture Cody and Marahute, taking them to a cliff where he ties Cody up and decides to feed the boy to a swarm of crocodiles since he had outlived his usefulness - but Bernard manages to stop the machine McLeach was using to lower Cody into the river.
McLeach responded by getting out of the vehicle and personally started firing at the rope holding Cody with a shotgun but once again Bernard thinks fast and tricks Joanna into chasing him - causing her to knock both McLeach and herself into the river in the process.
While in the river McLeach is attacked by crocodiles but fends them off, after a while the crocodiles depart and McLeach taunts them triumphantly only to turn around in horror and realize that they were not actually afraid of him but were swimming away from a large waterfall.
McLeach proceeds to plunge to his seeming demise as the river swept him down into the waterfall.

Buxton the Blue Cat:
Buxton is the only Blue Cat & the main popular classic antagonist in the world and everyone in the area came to see such a wondrous thing. He liked the attention he received, so decided to stay indefinitely. But Buxton isn't a nice cat. He has a plan is to become the Blue King (with the help of the Blue Voice and her Blue Army) and ensure that everything in the world is blue. So anything that isn't blue would be destroyed and anyone that isn't blue would be imprisoned.

Nogbad the Bad: Nogbad the bad is the archetypal wicked uncle, obsessed with an ambition to regain the crown of the Northlands which (in his view) was wrongly given to his worthless nephew, Noggin. His life is spent devising ingeniously evil schemes to steal the crown, or force Noggin to give it up.
At the end of each saga, Nogbad is defeated, banished or, apparently, destroyed, but fortunately he always returns to his black castle and his loyal band of crows to plot the necessary evil for the next saga.
Try to imagine a viking version of Terry Thomas, or maybe Dick Dastardly, and you'll get the picture. Nogbad the Bad is undoubtedly most peoples favourite character, probably because everyone else is so boringly nice all the time!
A traitor is an individual that betrays his or her allies, whether for personal gain or some other factor - treachery is often considered one of the most evil of traits in a villain due to the fact that a traitor is hard to trust, after all any character that is ruthless enough to betray friends and allies is more than ruthless enough to be a threat to anyone else - traitors are similiar to usurpers but don't always seek a position of power. Also traitor villains can sometimes betray other villains.
The Evil Queen:
The Evil Queen is the main villain of Snow White, her most famous incarnation is in Disney's classic animated feature but the origin of the story goes as far back as folklore itself - being a popular fairytale. Disney's film had a tremendous impact on how people see the Evil Queen as a villain and introduced the concept of her Magic Mirror and her ultimate transformation from an attractive but vain woman to a hideous old hag.
The Evil Queen married an unnamed King who died. She despised her step-daughter - Snow White - due to her beauty and forced her to dress in rags while treating her as a servant rather than a daughter: throughout the story it was made clear the Evil Queen's motive was her vanity, she simply couldn't stand the idea of someone being more beautiful than herself and was cruel enough to take drastic steps to ensure this could never happen.
This was shown when, upon asking her Magic Mirror who was the fairest in the land, the Evil Queen was informed that it was Snow White - she grew angered and ordered her Huntsman to take Snow White to a field and kill her: wishing to have proof of the deed she gave the Huntsman a box and ordered him to bring back Snow White's heart once his task was done.
However the Evil Queen didn't count on the fact her Huntsman was more merciful than herself and he spared Snow White's life, telling her to flee and never return - he then killed an animal from the forest and gave its heart to the Evil Queen: tricking her into believing Snow White was dead.
In time the Evil Queen became aware of Snow White's existence when her Magic Mirror once again informed her that Snow White was the fairest in the land and that she was alive and being taken care of by a group of seven dwarves in the forest.
Driven mad with rage the Evil Queen utilized her knowledge of the dark arts to transform her once noble (albeit wicked) form into that of a grotesque and frightening hag - she then created a poisoned apple and made her way to the dwarves' cottage.Evil Queen as an Old Lady
The Evil Queen waited until the dwarves had gone to the mines to work until she arrived, pretending to be a harmless old woman and offered Snow White the poisoned apple - Snow White innocently took the apple and collapsed to the ground as the Evil Queen cackled madly and left the scene.
However the woodland animals were quick to inform the dwarves of what transpired and they raced into action - the dwarves pursued the Evil Queen up onto a mountain where she attempted to roll a boulder down to crush her pursuers but slipped in the process, causing her to fall to her death as the boulder fell onto her.
The dwarves returned to the cottage and believed Snow White was dead yet couldn't bare to bury her so encased her in a glass coffin - she would later be awoken from the Evil Queen's curse by the kiss of her one true love: the Prince and the two would proceed to live "Happily Ever After".
