FEATURE: Fanart Friday, Black Friday Edition

Celebrate the darkest day of the year for retail employees in this wretched hive of scum and villainy

Fanart Friday returns, frothing at the mouth and ready to shiv you for a Tickle Me Elmo.  Honestly, Black Friday shopping wasn't that bad for me--Best Buy was an absolute madhouse, but people were generally polite and everybody just seemed to want to help each other get out of there as quickly as possible, because that would mean that they would get out of there faster too.

 

Last week, we showed you fanart of the manliest mofos who ever did manly acts.  This week, we're going to look at the other side of the coin, to the most villainous villains who ever committed acts of villainy, the guys you love to hate, or sometimes just love anyways because they're so charismatic and likeable.

I almost did a spit-take when Tobi made the big reveal about Itachi.  Now, Sasuke's a full-on villain, and the series is better for it.

Guys, for real--that detective who keeps foiling your plans?  HE'S EIGHT.  It's not like you're facing Conan the Barbarian or anything, this shouldn't be nearly the problem it is even with his genius intellect.

This really should be the Star Wars bad guy dress code instead of billowing black robes.

My mental image of Bowser is never consistent.  He's usually a giant goof, but when I face him in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy, this is what I think of--a giant fire-breathing dinosaur/dragon/turtle.


ffursula

Ursula's that rare breed of villain who hits all the wrong notes: she's petty, jealous, and cruel, and yet we still like her all the same.

And then you have someone like Bryan Hawk, who is racist, sadistic, and such a coward deep down that you want to see this grandstanding jerk get his head knocked off.

 

ffbison

by Socha

Have you noticed that Bison's closest guards are curvy women in leotards, while his male lieutenants are all either misogynistic freaks or have faces only their mothers would love?  Smooth, Bison, real smooth.

Gendo's so evil that he probably stole this from a lowly NERV intern who bought it with his last remaining yen.

Y'know, Norman Osborn is supposed to be a genius.  So when he's given control of the country, he 1- forcibly takes control of Tony Stark's arsenal and 2- pisses off every superhero in existence.  Yeah, real smart.

Before Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf felt like a faceless force of nature.  Once we got to know the dark wizard from the desert tribe, it made the fight a lot more personal... and honestly scarier.

Maleficent is a great villain, even after you realize why she does half the horrible stuff she does in Sleeping Beauty: she wasn't invited to a party.  And yet, after that and Carrie, you still see that kind Mean Girls-style bullying.

 

And that's all for this week!  Everybody try and recuperate from Black Friday--I know I will be with my shiny new Zelda 3DS.  Later on in December we'll be having another Fanart Friday with your art, so start getting your piece together, and be sure to PM it to me by Thursday, December 9!
