It’s the first day of the Semifinals. Lets see who won yesterday and vote for which villain will make it into the FINALS! 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!

Does anyone have a perfect bracket? How is your bracket doing? I have included an updated bracket below.
Match-up 3: Gaston vs Maleficent
The first match-up in the semifinals is Gaston vs Maleficent.
Gaston is the Villain from the movie Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast was first an animated film in 1991. Disney then made a live-action version of it in 2017. Be on the look out for a prequel! I don’t know about you guys, but this has been one of my favorite live action remakes.
In this movie, Gaston wants to marry Belle and will find any way to do so. He flaunts his manliness and thinks a woman’s place is at home. It’s a good thing Belle puts him in his place!
Spoiler alert: he doesn’t get the girl! One thing I always found fun was meeting Gaston in the Magic Kingdom. Before the pandemic, guests were able to meet him in Fantasyland. He was a great character to meet and had great interactions with guests.I love that he used to meet guests as most villains are only out during Halloween or special events.

Maleficent is from Disney’s 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent is a vengeful fairy who places a curse on Aurora.
Maleficent casts a spell that Princess Aurora will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die on her sixteenth birthday. One of the fairies, Merryweather, is able to cast her own spell that will make her fall into a deep slumber instead of dying, but the slumber can only be broken by true love’s kiss.
Aurora goes to live in the forest with the three fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. She takes on the name Briar Rose and does not know she is a princess until her sixteen birthday.
Maleficent finds Aurora and is able to get her to prick her finger. Prince Philip tries to save her but first has to battle Maleficent in dragon form. I can’t wait to see this dragon return when parades resume!
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.
