Generally, when you think of a bad uncle, it is associated with not giving Sunday (allowance) or being very nagging; but if it is a Disney villain everything is much worse.
The films of this production house prove that they have the worst uncles and brothers in history and the following list proves it.
Family get-togethers would be a lot of fun if Hades were around as the bachelor uncle. However, despite his charismatic personality, this villain would not be the favorite uncle.
According to Greek mythology, Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon defeated their ambitious father, Cronos, and claimed the universe for themselves. Each one was entitled to a kingdom: land, sea and the underworld.
Only Hades was never happy reigning in the underworld, as he considered it depressing and boring; so he planned to overthrow Zeus and stay with Olympus.
In the Disney movie, this evil uncle tried to eliminate his newborn nephew, to prevent a prophecy from being fulfilled.
Years later, when he learned that his plan had failed and Hercules was on his way to being a hero, instead of making a truce with his nephew, he continued to fight him.
This is probably Disney’s most hated villain. It is not for less, because his ambition made him murder his brother and drive away his little nephew in order to obtain the throne.
Scar, in his childhood, used to get along well with his older brother, Mufasa. Although he soon understood that since he was not the first-born he would not have the right to rule the Pride Lands.
This fearsome character is based on King Claudius of Hamlet, who obtained the throne of Denmark after poisoning his brother and marrying his sister-in-law.
This fearsome uncle belongs to the Donald Duck family. It is inspired by Ebenezer Scrooge from the children’s bookA Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens. So he is a stingy one of the worst, who does not give Sundays to his nephews.
Scrooge McDuck has a selfish and greedy character, which often leaves him in the role of villain. Although, compared to the other guys, he at least gets to reflect on his own actions and make amends for them.
In the Broadway musical The little Mermaid, it was revealed that Ursula and Triton are siblings. At the beginning of the act, on his father’s deathbed, he grants the crown and the trident to his son, while Ursula inherits half the sea and a magic shell.
The sea witch gets angry at this choice and pretends to rule harmoniously with her brother, until she can take the trident to be the only queen. However, she is discovered by Triton and exiles her to the depths.
Years later, Ariel appears before her and Úrsula tries to use her niece’s voice to get revenge on her brother.
Although Luke Skywalker is one of the favorite characters in the series of Star WarsIt’s probably not like that for Ben Solo — he’s probably the worst guy ever.
Luke had a vision related to Ben’s destructive power, if he were to be corrupted. Faced with such fear, he decided to kill him while he slept and thus avoid a new reign of terror, but being in front of him he quickly regretted it.
To his bad luck, his nephew woke up and that moment marked Kylo Ren forever. Realizing that his uncle tried to assassinate him, he felt betrayed and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back to lead him to the dark side.
The other Disney villains may have tried to kill their nephews as well, however, they never created an emotional bond unlike Luke and Ben — which makes it sadder. If Luke gave the worst villain Darth Vader the benefit of the doubt, he could have done it with his nephew as well.
