This is a list of antagonists and villains in musicals that are memorable. They are characters I usually never like, but some I care a bit about and some I have a love/hate relationship with. Next to each I will explain why they deserve to be on this list.
- Javert- one of the most complex antagonists and the dynamic between Javert and Valjean is quite fascinating
- Thenardiers- much needed comic relief and this might sound crazy, but I do love their children: Gavroche and Eponine. But at the same time they are abusive, greedy, selfish, pickpockets, unloving. Have a love/hate relationship with them
- Leading Player- quite crafty, dark at times, playful in a way, very manipulate
- Miss Hanigan- love her sense of humor even though she is abusive
This are the only characters I can think of that are memorable. I was trying to think of a Disney antagonist or villain that deserves to be on this, but couldn’t think of one.
