Why Disney's Twist Villains Don't Work

  • In this video I talk about Tamatoa for 30 seconds, plus I talk about some other lame twist Disney villains who don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Him

    What is the song that starts playing in the background at 14:00? I cant hear enough of it to pick out what it is but it reminds me of something I would have heard on PBS as a kid and it's driving me nuts that I can't figure it out.

    Syndrome didn’t really seem like a twist villain, it was more like the twist was that he was the kid to me.
    I saw him in merch before going to see the movie.
    Also the steering wheel from Wall E seemed like a villain from the start.

    If they made Tadashi Hamada the twist villain in Big Hero 6, I would be much more entertained by it. That of course comes with the rewriting of the script to create motivation, but the twist would be much more impactful. Ik that Big Hero 6 is based on a Marvel comic, so something like this could probably never happen.

    Lol. This is so true! I have to say some of the twist villain's are really bad.

  • CreatureCanyon

    The reason why Hans was such a bad twist villain because originally in the movie Elsa was the villain, and she wouldn’t reform. But after hearing the song ‘let it go’ they decided that they couldn’t make her a villain. (I wish I was joking.)
    So they literally shoehorned Hans in as villain.

    Big hero six isn’t that good. But I LOVED and still do love superhero movies, so I liked it a lot as a kid and know I kinda just really like because it means something to me.

    K so Hans what they could’ve done.. this would’ve been so much more interesting, so he meets Ana quickly falls in love and when Elsa refuses he becomes enraged so he plots to kill her cause she won’t give Ana permission to marry him so then when Ana leaves and still being in love with him and come back after being hurt by Elsa he tries to kiss her to save her and she doesn’t become fixed so he blames elsa goes to kill her

    Guys, i've just saw the Toy Story 4 trailer and i have a theory: Bo is the twist villain.
    First, she is not a toy, she's an ornament of a lamp and, as far as you can see, an antique. We don't know how did she arrive there, or why did they never went to rescue her, but it is possible that she have resented. Finally, as seen in a trailer phrase, he tries to convince Woody to go to the amusement park, just as Stinky Pete tried to convince Woody to go to Japan.

    The sheep, Bellwether, is literally overworked, ignored, and cast aside the entire movie despite her obvious ambition and political acumen. That's demonstrated by her focus on Judy, telling her she always has a friend in city hall, her comment that the mayor chose her to get the sheep vote, and texting the mayor about Judy taking the case so Bogo couldn't fire her. She also quickly tries to position Judy as the face of the ZPD saying people need reassurance. Even her name signals ambition: a bellwether is a predictor of something, usually change, and the leading sheep in a flock. She seemed meek and unassuming, but had a clear agenda throughout the film. I think this one was done well.

    I don’t see Otto in Wall-e as a twist villain, because the point of him was to act as a foil to wall-e himself. Wall-e is a robot that has developed humanity over time, while Otto is a programmed machine with no morality

    Hans doesn't work as a good twist villain. As far as I know, there wasn't any foreshadowing. Also, he genuinely seemed to be a good guy; he protected the kingdom from a traitor (the Weasel guy), gave food and blankets to the people, and he told Elsa how to be a better person; she was about to kill a guy, but then Hans told her not to be the monster they fear she was.

  • Connor is a THICC SNACC of an android

    I just like to think Hans isn’t the villain, we all know the true villains were those fucking rocks
    They literally let Anna slowly die because gotta have a song, they put some weird ass spell on Hans so that one guy could get laid
    Guess I’m gonna have to watch the fucking sequel to find out

    Twist villains work a lot better in a series than a movie. That way they have time to make you actually care about and like the person before they turn out to be evil. I personally think it's best if they seem like kind of a jerk at first only for the audience and characters to slowly warm up to them. Then right as they've become a fan favorite they stab the good guys in the back and reveal how every benevolent action they made in the past was part of an elaborate but still totally coherent and intelligent plan. My favorite twist villain that I can remember is from the web show red vs blue.
