Scariest Cartoon Characters #8: Jafar
An evil sorcerer with plans to rule over all of Agrabah on his way to taking over the Universe, Jafar once hid himself as the Grand Vizier of the Sultan of Agrabah. However, not a day went by that he didn’t try to acquire more power, most notably through his quest to trap the fabled Genie of the Lamp. As soon as he is able to take hold over the Genie, he truly becomes the greatest nemesis Aladdin would ever fear to face. Yeah, that’s the kinda stuff that will get you ranked at #8 on our list.
While his human form is tall and thin, he is unmistakably creepy with his flowing robes of moody colors. Even Iago would agree. Once he is granted wishes through the Genie, he transforms into a giant venomous snake, capable of striking with lethal blows. But even that is not powerful and terrifying enough for the sorcerer, who commands the Genie to make him the most powerful force in all of the Universe; an all-powerful Genie. He gains demonic red muscles, spiky claws, glowing yellow eyes, and overall devil-like appearance… he went from scary, to scarier, to scariest all in a single movie! Check out some video footage
