The Most Engaging Villains in Gaming

All the villains of No More Heroes

"Don't die on me too quickly now, I want to gorge myself on the sense of fulfillment until I vomit." 

The assassins who stand in Travis Touchdown’s way on his quest to become the top-ranked assassin are a colorful and memorable bunch. Every one is distinct and engages the player in their own way. 

Dr. Peace is the second assassin you face in the game, and he makes for one hell of a memorable adversary. When you meet him, he tells you about a dinner he had with his family and he utters this line, "Unfortunately, the atmosphere was a facade. Not once did my own daughter looked me in the eye. Oh, the food? Tasted like blood..."

Destroyman is a postal worker who cosplays as a character from a cult film who also fights dirty and resorts to cheap tactics. Holly Summers fights with a prosthetic leg which can fire ANTI-AIRCRAFT missiles. She will also beat you with a shovel.... To each their own. Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarskii is a stage magician who uses several tricks of his trade in his attempt to do you in. Bad Girl is a demented young lady who spends her free time bludgeoning cloned men clad in bondage gear while she is garbed in Lolita attire. Dark Star is a parody of Darth Vader with a crazy beam katana (lightsaber) which can project dragons and might have an A.I.? Like I said, they are an interesting bunch.

The fact that you have ten of these wild characters to encounter in just one game makes for one unforgettable game, and I did not even touch on the sequel.
