Favorite Fictional Tyrant

Quiet Friday night here. So... the question: Who's your favorite fictional tyrant? Let's put it to the vote, 'cause that's the way to rub their noses in democracy. Muahahahaha!

Poll #1762004 Your favorite fictional tyrant

Who's your favorite fictional tyrant?

Sauron – Home in Mount Doom: Check. Nazgul servants: Check. Orc armies: Check. Kind of a weakling that he can't defeat a couple of annoying hobbits.
6(54.5%)
Emperor Palpatine –The force is strong with this guy. Destroys an entire planet just to get people to bow to him. Hiring Darth Vader shows poor Human Resource skills.
2(18.2%)
Hitler – Ok, not fictional, but there are guys out there without a brain who think his concentration camps are make-belief...
0(0.0%)
Luseferous – Archvillian in Iain M. Banks's The Algebraist. Absolute ruler. Keeps the heads of his defeated opponents alive just so he can punch them around when he's angry. And this guy is angry a lot.
0(0.0%)
Other – please share in the comments :-)
3(27.3%)
Not on the list:
Voldemort. Seriously, the guy doesn't have a nose...

Hey! I like the new digs! Very snazzy with your...who is that one?? I can't remember the Japanese turtle monster...Squirtle! Ha! ;)

I had to go with Palpatine. The other guys--they might have whole worlds in their clutches, but our Sith Lord has a whole dang GALAXY!

I absolutely agree with your choice. Sauron, at his worst, only has a single world in his grasp.

Well, he's won the poll 3 votes to 2 :-) While I prefer Palpatine, I have to admit that The Eye of Sauron makes for a nice opponent to those wee hobbitsses.

Hah, I see there's a flaw in my education - I had to google this guy to even find out where he's from. Wikipedia informs me that he was played by Max von Sydow, so that counts in his favor :-)

Lord Havelock Vetinari wins my vote. The guy has got *style* :D Though I guess he is small potatoes, given that he's only tyrant of a single city. Still...he's my fave :)

A good choice, even if he's somewhat enlightened :-) But I guess a good show of force is needed from time to time with a city like that :-)

Sauron can kick all those other villain's asses any day.

Fun poll -- thanks for posting!
