Welcome to Gaia! ::

I found myself watching Disney's Hercules and forgot how much I loved this guy! I mean, really? How great is Hades? He's just about the perfect Disney villain, hands down. He's a god, so hey- he's immortal. And I just dig his hot-headed (pun intended) personality and how he's such a smooth-talker.
feel free to discuss, but Hades makes all your other villains wimpypants

Mmmm Hades is a funny character. Yet, I still find it odd that Disney decided to make him the bad guy out of all the myth characters... He isn't a bad man (well, not any worse than any other gods, at least) in the original stories. Oh well, maybe that's because he is the god of DEATH. How surprising...

Can somebody explain why they decided to name him "Dark God" and not simply "The Devil" as was originally intended and stated in the narration?

The same reason they always have: legions of angry parents.

Re: Hades. I love the guy. I really do. But I don't think he's the best Disney villain. He's in the top five, but he's not the best. I'd say Frollo is the best, for sheer complexity of character and for being absolutely terrifying in hindsight.

I can understand that, but on my Fantasia special-edition DVD from 2000 he is not called Chernabog. He is out-right called Satan and the Devil. Maybe the name change came after that, then...?


Also, Frollo is indeed a good villain and has one of the best song numbers.

Chernabog is basically Slavic (i.e. Russian) mythology's version of the Devil. "Night On Bald Mountain" was composed by a Russian.
Ratigan was fairly evil.
Judge Claude Frollo. He has no annoying sidekick just a bad a** horse that looks like it came out of hell. He is a racist, genocidal maniac who honestly believes he's a good guy even at his worst he justifies what he is doing in the name of god. even his villain song is far darker and far more non Disney. He has non of the silly quarks or traits of a Disney villain (Unless lust counts) he is pure serous evil on a level that only maybe Maleficent came close to reaching. Only he does it while being completely mortal and human.

Yea and in the real world he would probably be the most evil since he wants to rape Esmerelda,and he's like a sociopath.

Eh, I still think Chernabog is probably the most evil, on account of he's the friggin Devil. But Frollo definitely is the best Disney villain.

Madam Mim and the Queen of Hearts freaked me out as a kid. Frollo never really hit that same cord, for whatever reason, and Night on Bald Mountain was always my favorite part of Fantasia <.<

Madam Mim doesn't bother me any more but I still have a disliking for Alice in Wonderland <.< Still don't like the Queen, but I mostly hate it because of that damn cat >.< Oh how I hate that Cheshire cat! Of all Disney movies and Disney characters the Cheshire cat scared me the most growing up, enough that I still won't watch the film. And I'm in my 20's! Lol. It scared me that much... not that I cringe when I see the damn thing. I just have no desire to go out of my way and watch the films (new and old)
