Some Animated Villains + MOTIVATIONS
inspired by x
Also, I know some of these villains have more than one motive, but I chose only one of them for each. And it’s pretty much my favourites, so I apologize if you don’t find yours on this list.
I like that even if you try to figure out Oogie Boogies’ motives he’s still an asshole.
Um the snake wasn’t the villain just a gun for hire. Who ever did this post never seen that movie.

Okay, you really want to go there? Then let’s go there.
From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia:
And you’re telling me Jake was not a villain?
- ripps Rango into pieces emotionally and psychologically the first time meeting him, enabling his journey to discover himself (aka ‘constitutes an important evil agency in the plot’)
- STRAIGHT UP TRIES TO MURDER BEANS WITHOUT THE MAYOR’S ACTUAL APPROVAL AND ALMOST SUCCEEDS
if it wasn’t for Rango’s lucky timing
- then IMMEDIATELY GOES OUT TO KILL RANGO
- he is the one who after all, at the end, punishes the Mayor and takes him away to kill him
- and even though we never actually see him kill on-screen, there’s this:
"He never leaves without taking a blooming soul." - which basically means he kills every time he is in a new city.
And that is not ‘being devoted to wickedness or crime’, to stay with my definition? Because to me it sounds like he’s quite the villain.
I think what you mean is that he is neither the main villain nor the antagonist.
Main villain in Rango, the Mayor John:
And the movie has not one, but three secondary villains, which are not any less villainous or evil, the Hawk, Bad Bill and Rattlesnake Jake (even three, if you count the Hawk,but this is enough to prove my point):
What the three of them are not and what makes Mayor John the main villain, is that he is the antagonist to Rango’s protagonist.
If Jake is the antagonist to anyone’s protagonist, then it is to the Mayor himself, in his own story, since the two of them embody polar opposites.
As a conclusion, as far as it concerns Jake not being the main antagonist of the movie, I am completely with you. And yes, he was a gun for hire, but one which was not defined by that and was very capable of making his own decisions.
But, Tumblr users applejackbot and drawciawitch, you probably should’ve done your own research before insulting my work and the thought I put into it.
