It’s game three in round three of the March Badness Tournament. Now is the time to see who won yesterday and vote for your favorite in today’s Disney Villain match-up. Read on to vote!
Disney Villain Tournament
Now, it is time to find your favorite Villain, and who doesn’t love a good villain? Without a villain, we wouldn’t have our favorite heroes. We need your help to find which Disney Villain is the baddest of them all. Let’s find out yesterday’s results and vote for today’s villain.
How it Works
We need you! Whether you are a new Disney fan or Certified Disney Pro, we want to hear from you as we narrow down your favorite Disney Villains.
This tournament will be like our previous tournaments – a bracket style tournament. We will begin with 32 contenders and vote until we get down to one. There can be only one big bad villain.
Each day of the tournament, we will bring you a new game with a match-up between two fan-favorite Disney Villains. You will be able to cast your vote for one of the two options to advance to the next round.
Like the last three tournaments, this is a single elimination style tournament. The Villain with the least amount of votes will be eliminated from the tournament. So let your voice be heard to find out who the crew will crown the baddest of them all.
The Tournament Bracket
With over 100 Disney Villains, there are a lot to choose from. We narrowed it down for you to pick your favorite out of some of our favorites.
THE BRACKET IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR THEMES: MALE VILLAINS, FEMALE VILLAINS, STAR WARS VILLAINS, AND MARVEL VILLAINS.
After the KtP writing team narrowed down our favorite villains, we are left with 32 bad to the bone villains for you to choose from. These include some of the classic characters and newer characters to the Disney franchise.
The characters are all lined up on the tournament bracket. There will definitely be some tough choices. I know I am already struggling to decide who my favorite is in some of these match-ups. Be sure to vote, so your favorite makes it to the top!

Match-up 3: Emperor Palpatine vs Darth Vader
For the third match up in the quarter finals we have Emperor Palpatine vs Darth Vader.
Emperor Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious, is the “phantom menace”. At first, he seems like a faithful senator, but it’s not too long before his dark side is revealed and we find out that he is actually a supporter of the Dark Side and master to Count Dooku and Darth Maul.
He invades Naboo and is elected as Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic. Not only that, but he also executes Order 66 to destroy the Jedi and convinces Anakin to join him on the Dark Side as his new apprentice. After Anakin joins with the Emperor, he eventually becomes Darth Vader.
Darth Vader was a Jedi, but he followed a path to the dark side. After being defeated in a battle with his own master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, he was taken under a new master, Darth Sidious, who he would continue to serve for decades.
Vader would then go on to destroy the Jedi Order. Eventually, Darth Vader tries to convince Luke Skywalker, his own son, to join him on the dark side. However, Luke refuses.
Time to Vote
Polling will remain open until 9 P.M. Eastern time/6 P.M. Pacific time today. We will gather the results and compile them then.
We will reveal the winner of this match-up in tomorrow’s tournament match-up post. You will see which villain won and be able to vote in the next match-up. Be sure to look for a post around noon Eastern time.
