Scariest Cartoon Characters #6: Hades
Hades, from Hercules, is an easy choice for #6. I mean, it’s difficult to be scarier than the devil, and ruler of every deceased and creepy soul. Voiced by James Woods, Hades, leader of Greek Mythology’s Underworld, is a pretty scary guy. First off, he’s a god, and has all the power that comes with it. Secondly, he’s evil! Everything he does is death and destruction. Third… come on! His head is on fire! And his feet are made of a billowing smoke! That’s scary!!!
His minions, Pain and Panic, are always at his beck and call on his never-ending quest to take over the world. To do so, all he has to do is, oh, I don’t know… take on a whole legion of good gods, like Zeus! And then Hercules! But guess what? This guy is SO evil, and SO scary, and SO powerful that he’s just going to do it anyway! Now that is a villain! And that is why Hades is on this list. Check him out in action
