5 Disney Villains You Never Want to Work For


Halloween and costumes make us think of some of the most diabolical villains that exist in the magical realm of Disney and how it would be like to have them as our bosses. While that thought is enough to make our blood run cold, we decided to dive deeper to find the cruelest bosses that we would gladly report to Ministry of Manpower (MOM) if they were real.


Ursula from “The Little Mermaid”

Vengeful and power-hungry, Ursula will send you out to do her bidding, just as she did with minions, Flotsam and Jetsam. Let’s not forget how she almost tricked Ariel into giving up her freedom. That’s one boss we all want to avoid working for right there.

Lady Tremaine (also known as Wicked Stepmother) from “Cinderella”

If making a maid out of her own stepdaughter isn’t enough, Lady Tremaine shows a sort of manipulative intelligence that hides her cruel tendencies. She had convinced everyone else around her that she isn’t that bad a person, making her one of the most dangerous Disney Villains around.

Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast”

You’ve probably met a Gaston in your lifetime. He’s narrow-minded, narcissistic and rude, but praised by the town’s people. Driven by a shallow desire to marry the Belle of the ball (excuse the pun), Gaston turned into a raging maniac after she rejected him, even going to the extent of attempting to murder the beast. Can we say kooky?

The Queen of Hearts from “Alice in Wonderland”

Alice called her a “fat, pompous, bad-tempered old tyrant”, which is a descriptive we believe to be too mild. Make one mistake in front of the Queen and it’s “Off with your head!” When three of her card employees painted white roses they mistakenly planted red, she had them all beheaded. You’ll be risking your life working for her.

Shan Yu from “Mulan”

Shan Yu isn’t your typical villain – no, he’s a cruel mix of strength and cleverness. He isn’t just a merciless killer; when releasing two survivors to send a message to the emperor, he asked the archer, “How many men does it take to deliver a message?” This sign of ruthlessness also shows him relishing in murder. And those yellow irises will make you feel like he’s reading into your soul. Terrifying!

Note to readers: There were many other villains we could have included in this list, but we’ve concluded that most of Disney’s antagonists have similar characteristics (we’re looking at you, Maleficent!) or are truly misunderstood characters (think Captain Hook).
