1 Star2 Stars

OK, we can kinda see where they’re coming from. For this list, we’re looking at villains from animated movies whose backstories make us understand why they do what they do, even if we don’t necessarily agree with how they go about it. Think Wilson Fisk in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (2018), Rex Dangervest in “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” (2019), Gabby Gabby in “Toy Story 4” (2019), and more! What animated villain do YOU think had the most understandable motives? Let us know in the comments!

  2. This list is just mostly Disney/Pixar villains which is definitely proof positive that Disney is fantastic at making multifaceted villains

  3. Rebecca, you can check out some animation from Russia. There is a Russian Maugli, there is Vinny Pooh, pinoccio (chipallino), and many more somewhat obscure animated films. There are some amazing cartoons made by animation studio Pilot. I am certain some of those will have subtitles in English

  4. Maleficent should have been there somewhere, she does what she does because she was excluded from a party that everyone was at except for her.

  5. NONE OF THESE VILLAINS ARE THAT UNDERSTANDING! STOP TRYING TO DEFEND THEM! FYI KING TRITON IS NOT THE VILLAIN FOR PROTECTING HIS DAUGHTER FROM THE HARSH REALITIES OF THE WORLD.

  6. what about Drago Bludvist from How to Train Your Dragon 2 you kind of get where he is coming from he lost everything because of dragons and offered to help chiefs but they rejected him by laughing at him
