10 Deliciously Evil Vampire Villains

Today’s post is filled with all kinds of bloodthirsty, cruel and evil vampire villains from books, films and television. Enjoy my sweets…

1. Akasha
The vampire queen from The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. What makes this vamp villainess? The fact that when she awoke not only did she destroy most of the vampires in the world but had also planned to destroy 90% of the world’s men, keeping only a small number of men for breeding.

“We shall live even in this state of living death, we shall love, we shall feel, we shall defy all who would judge and destroy us.”

2. Damon Salvatore
The vampire hottie from the books and CW show The Vampire Diaries. If you have watched the show you know that Damon is packed full of evil and makes Stefan’s life pure hell. It appears that no one but Elena is safe around him for he just can’t seem to stop brutally torturing and killing people.

Damon: “What’s so special about this Bella girl? Edward’s so whipped!”
Caroline: “You’ve gotta read the first book first. It won’t make sense if you don’t.”
Damon: “I miss Anne Rice. She was so on it.”

3. David
David aka Kiefer Sutherland from the movie The Lost Boys. He was the frightening leader of the gang of vampires, causing all sorts of mischief and mayhem, giving Michael and the Frog brothers a tough ride.

“Maggots, Michael. You’re eating maggots. How do they taste?”

4. Dracula
Do I even need to give this legendary vampire an introduction? Big bad Dracula caused all sorts of chaos and pain in Bram Stoker’s novel. Killing off an entire ship’s crew, toying with Lucy and putting Mina under his wicked spell – this guy was one evil badass.

“It is the eve of St. George’s Day. Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?”

5. Drusilla
The totally insane, yet hilarious psychic vampire from the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Dru was one of my faves on the show, sure she was evil and killed mercilessly but she was highly entertaining while doing so.

Dru:  “I’m naming all the stars.”
Spike:  “You can’t see the stars, love.  That’s the ceiling.  Also, it’s day.”
Dru:  “I can see them.  But I’ve named them all the same thing, and there’s terrible confusion…”

6. James
The major antagonist in Stephanie Meyer’s famed novel, Twilight. This cruel vampire was an excellent tracker and enjoyed hunting humans down for nothing more than sport. He lures Bella away from safety in attempt to kill her.

“It was all for him, of course. You’re simply a human, who unfortunately was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and indisputably running with the wrong crowd, I might add.”

7. Lucien Lacroix

This evil vampire comes from the show Forever Knight. Lucien, once a Roman general, is the cruel, yet practical vampire that sired Nick and therefore wont leave Nick alone, which causes all kinds of problems.

“Les mortels meurent. Qu’importe la façon?”
[“Mortals die. Does it really matter how or when?”]

8. Sidorio
This malevolent vampire is from the Vampirates series by Justin Somper. This vamp has an insatiable appetite for blood and feeds whenever and on whoever he chooses.

“We’re not civilized. We’re vampires…”

9. Jan Valek

The master vampire from John Carpenter’s Vampires. Valek is the big bad vampire in this film, killing off the slayers and causing all sorts of hell throughout the whole movie.

“For 600 years I have fed on your kind at will.“

10. Viktor
The first believed good guy gone bad from the hit movie Underworld. Victor destroyed countless lives, subjected the lycans to slavery and lied to Selene her whole life – he’s one bad bad vampire.

“Your incompetence is becoming most… taxing.”

    1. I do agree 100% on Eric-the-northman, he is the hottest of the all. But hes not really EVIL hes just a Vamp. ;)

  2. IT Names The EVIL Ones. From the 3D ones I would also mention crazy for power Sebastian Lacroix from the Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Besides – what is a good vampire? Are they not all evil? What would be evil and what would be not? Lestat should be added too. ;)

    1. But Lestat wasn’t evil. He appeared evil in the first book, Interview, but once you go through the series you learn he did everything with purpose and he was never actually evil.

  3. I own Vampire diaries and read it about ten times now, and I agree that Damon is one bad vampire. On the other hand, he is my favourite character by far. Unlike some cliche vampire stories out there, he continues to feed on humans and even though he saves Stefan in The Fury, he refuses to join them and goes off on his own, staying evil. THAT’s what I love about him. He stays himself throughout the story. And he’s funny as well. :D

    1. I love Damon he is so funny like how in The return: Night fall he keeps calling matt. A mutt so jah he is bad but he does care about bonnie and elena that is my first reason to like him but my second is that he is bad, cut, hot, funny, and strong. Pluse he is immortal!

  4. Dru: “I’m naming all the stars.”
    Spike: “You can’t see the stars, love. That’s the ceiling. Also, it’s day.”
    Dru: “I can see them. But I’ve named them all the same thing, and there’s terrible confusion…”

    Just :’) i read that out to one of my friends and she replied “ohmygod, that sounds like you.” mmn, the bad guys are the hotter ones. if vampires are our contained lusts and inhibitions, then the bad ones are even worse. ooofffft xD

  5. holy shit i remember when dru said that hahaha. love it. oh and even though akasha is one bad ass bitch…. damon should be first. that man is ruthless and has no adversion to hurting anyone and everyone around him to get what he wants. which is everything….
