I certainly don't agree with all of the rankings, but found this to be an enjoyable read:

That's a seriously thorough list. Some I didn't even remember or even know had names.


Yeah, controversial like any list -- Whitaker and Kristatos ranked way too high while Drax and Dario are far lower than they should in my view. But that's the fun of such things.

They left out some characters. Most notably:



Angelo Palazzi

Count Lippe

Mr. Osato

Prof. Dr. Metz

Morton Slumber

Shady Tree


Sergei Borzov

Hector Gonzales

Col. Luis Toro

Bob Conley

Giulietta da Vinci aka Cigar Girl





Craig Mitchell

Yusef Kabira


Hector Gonzales is the one I'm most surprised about.

I went to post this and found that I had been beaten to it. Good on you, Cody.


First thing's first, Davidov's first name is SASHA?! I never knew that...


Secondly, Red Grant, Scaramanga, and some bloke named Trevelyan as the top three? I can live with that!  B)

Interesting list. One complaint though:

The fight with Mr. Slate was NOT one of the "worst-choreographed, worst-shot" fights in the entire series. QOS may be guilty of many sins, but that was not one of them.

Chang was played by Toshiba Suga?

All this time I thought his name was Toshiro.

And for a mute, he shouts really well ("Mr Drax say to telephone him.")


Gobinda too.


I should have started reading Esquire years ago.

Good, fun read! Disappointed Ourumov only made it to No. 62! I always found him to be the worst kind of guy - betray your own country for personal gain and let Xenia do your dirty work for you! 


Pleased that Trevelyan made it so close to the No.1 spot - IMO he's a far more menacing villain than Silva!

Nice to see Volpe as the no. 1 female baddie and as high as no. 6. overall.
