Name Movie Villains who met a Worthy Demise.

You know, the scenes that make you smile when they get what they deserve. Not arrested or marooned somewhere. Doesn't have to be ultra violent (but it's better if it is). Prominent henchman count too.

I'll start towards the top with Emil from Robocop '87. It still puts me in a good mood to this day.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

Laurence Fishburne in Death Wish 2, his rapist character was trying to run away using a boombox as a shield, but Bronson shot right through it, and the speakers blew out too.
The injured biker in the Gary Busey movie Eye of The Tiger, Busey stuffed a stick of dynamite up him for information, he quickly died of a heart attack.

I smile when I think of the villains in Cliffhanger who got what they deserved. The top 3, in order of demise:
> Kynette, who got slammed onto a stalactite;
> Delmar, who went off the cliff after two fatal injuries;
> and terrorist leader Eric Qualen, who ended up wearing a helicopter.
Total scumbags, just about all of them, but these three stand out most for me.

Tim Roth's character (I think called Cunningham) in Rob Roy. Absolute evil and defeated by someone disadvantaged in almost every way except motivation and the element of surprise.

There is an old saying "The better the villain, the better the story."

We might add "The better the villain's death..."

I'd suggest Messala from Ben Hur, who goes out ugly, but still villainous.

Here's my most memorable villain demise.


Tony Goldwyn getting pulled into darkness by the shadow demons in Ghost (1990). The thing that made it most memorable for me was that as much as he truly deserved it, the way the scene communicated the horror of being sucked into nothingness (or hell) was vivid and so mortifying that you almost felt sorry for him.

Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) in Inglorious Basterds. Quite the fitting punishment. No death, but gruesomely delicious.

King Edward I - Longshanks (Patrick McGoohan) in Braveheart. No gore, but oh so perfect for his character.

Great villain, worthy (boom) demise.

No, you are correct but heath ledger was a worthy villain that was worth mentioning in my honest opinion.

Doug Hutchison as Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. He didn't get killed, but John (Michael Duncan) regurgitates the disease he took form the warden's wife into Percy, which causes him to go mad and shoot William Wharton (Sam Rockwell) to death before going into a permanent catatonic state. He is then committed to a mental hospital. That is much better than death. He is one of the most despicable characters I've ever seen, and he got EXACTLY what he deserved.

BTW, Doug married a 16-year old in 2011 and hasn't worked since.

I don't think you can get much better than James Gandolfini as "Virgil" in True Romance.

Vase, toilet lid, flaming hair spray, corkscrew in the back, corkscrew in the foot, and then some Benelli action. But what may have hurt him the most was when "Alabama" laughed at him. "You look ridiculous!".
