Thanks for the answers, and I apologize for asking something that was already discussed (though for the life of me I don't see that discussion here, which has me concerned. Because I'm old and not seeing things has me questioning my mental stability :))

Also I stressed the 'fictional' aspects, because there are films/books/etc that might be taking dramatic license, but are trying to tell a historically accurate story. Which is different than say Hickman's Manhattan Projects, which while it might be based on a historical event, goes off the rails into pure fiction. I figure one wouldn't count, while the other would.

I have my list, I checked it twice (and more) and made the painful cuts. I think it's a most excellent 25, if I might brag.

You probably missed it because it happened over in the topic voting thread:

Well, my preference is individual characters, but sure.

EDIT:  To clarify, I'd prefer a homogeneous villain collective to, say, the Legion of Doom, which is made of a bunch of villains.

In making my list I was surprised that some big names got left off... for one reason or another. I mostly gravitated towards villains capable of causing widespread destruction, death, chaos, or some combination of those three. Given that, it is really difficult for me to even think about adding villains like Doctor Robotnik or King Koopa to my list because well, I guess there's also an intimidation factor at work where if they can't scare me on some level, I won't even consider them.

I kept AFIs judging criterion in mind when I did mine. (though they are focused on film, and I of course went beyond that.)  I underlined the bits that particularly left an impression on the making of my top 25.

Quote
Villains are characters whose wickedness of mind, selfishness of character and will to power are sometimes masked by beauty and nobility. Others rage unmasked. Daring the worst to gain the most, the movie villains we remember best can be horrifically evil, merely sleazy or grandiosely funny, but are usually complex, moving and tragic.

So they came from many places and motivations. They didn't need to scare me necessarily, they could simply anger me or, in some occasions, make me laugh?

Edit: Oh and before anyone corrects me, the typo in the spoiler was intentional. I think it was one of the bots on MST3K who referred to a Hugh (maybe Beaumont), as HUGE Beaumont. And I've taken that up ever since.

We are up to 6!  Things are going well so far but don't slow down now!  We need more.

Considering 7 people voted for Villains, and I didn't but submitted a list for Villains anyway, you are owed 8 lists. If you don't get 8 then that means someone here has one or more mult accounts and used it to vote.

A lot of us are procrastinators and last minute list senders, surely conspiracy needn't be assumed here.

When DVD was new I used to listen to commentaries all the time, but I haven't listened to one in at least a decade now.

I tried to get started on a villains list a couple of times but just couldn't get into it, so I guess I'll sit this one out.

If the lists available are all ones I can't participate (or won't because they are a topic that doesn't interest me enough to create a list) I'll vote for the one I will be most interested to read.

(I didn't vote for this topic, and don't have a list in me for it)
FINE
