Television has certainly given us our fair share of hot heroes. But they aren’t the only ones fans fall hard for. Sometimes, a show’s villains are too deliciously yummy for their own good. They do terrible things, yet have a certain charisma or look about them that makes us secretly root for them. So which villains have our heart forever? These 10 villains will always be bae.
1. Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
This blonde vampire initially came on the scene to kill the slayer, but he had a very interesting arch throughout the show. Some may argue he wasn’t a villain as much as he would have liked to be. But either way, Buffy fans swooned over his bleached hair and accent.
2. Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place
We can’t forget the blonde bad girl who manipulated everyone in the apartment complex and looked good doing it. The ’90s character was very cruel. Heather Locklear continues to slay to this day.
3. Gyp Rosetti on Boardwalk Empire
This gangster was determined to take down Nucky Thompson’s empire and did some despicable things while doing so. But no matter what he did we can’t deny that Bobby Cannavale does naughty very well.
4. Melisandre on Game of Thrones
Some may argue that she isn’t a villain on Game of Thrones because of her complicated arc. However Melisandre has done some pretty horrendous things. #RipShireen, She happens to be so stunning, that you forget about her terrifying true form.
5. Lex Luthor on Smallville
Lex Luther was pretty ruthless and had no problem taking down his enemies including his family. Of course his main nemesis was Clark Kent, but he still had time experimenting on unsuspecting victims on the side. He also happened to look super good without any hair and had some softer moments.
6. Klaus Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries
The vampire and werewolf mix is one of a kind. Klaus also has a pretty dark side and is always out for vengeance or power. We first met him as an evil character on TVD, but he became so interesting and liked that he got his own spin off, The Originals. His accent and genuine vulnerable moments definitely pushed him into our hearts.
7. Stringer Bell on The Wire
Here is another villain that falls more into the grey area. The drug kingpin’s main goal was to protect what was his. He is smart and interesting to watch. It doesn’t hurt that he is played by Idris Elba who is captivating.
8. Sylar on Heroes
This serial killer has the ability to figure out other people’s abilities and how to gain more on of his own. He was a power hungry psychopath with an interesting story that kept fans wanting more. We can’t help but admit that Zachary Quinto will makes us fall for any terrible character.
9. Tate Langdon on American Horror Story
They say the devil is beautiful and Tate certainly embodied that. This character made sure to come across as a lovesick teenager before showing his true self. Evan Peters does such a good job, that most fans can’t help but fall in love with Tate despite his evil actions.
10. Tammy Two on Parks and Recreation
Ron Swanson is notorious for his terrible ex-wives. However, the one that we enjoy the most has to be Tammy Two. After all, she tries to win him back the most. Her overt sexuality and changes Ron into a lunatic. We love her because she’s both hot and hilarious.
