Favorite Indy Villain

who's your fave?

Ooops sorry for the misspell on Elsa Schneider.

Not sure which is my fave, but as time goes by, Mola Ram seems to be more and more of a badass.

Would have liked more of Toht though.

Mola Ram, even though he was in the worst movie of the series. It must've been that damn video game I would play far too much at lunchtime back in high school!

How could you leave out Pat Roach?! He of course was the bald-headed german mechanic In Raiders and the giant Thugee guard in ToD.

Belloq, no question. He was just a spineless, snivelling villain that you love to hate.

Favorite: I voted for Belloq (the correct spelling)


But least favorite would be the snakes, because I hate snakes, Jock!

Mola Ram, by far. Lucas must've been channeling Emperor Palpatine when he came up with that character cuz both dudes are over-the-top, pure evil.


"Mola Ram, prepare to meet Kali....in hell!"

Belloq. Great character. Evil, but only because he seems to be pragmatic taken to the extreme.

His speech with Indy at the bar is a classic - nice character development that is often overlooked in the other Indy films.

I wanted to include him, but decided I should stick to characters that actually spoke a few english lines in the film.

I forgot the name of the head Nazi in Crusade.

And yes, The TBS marathon was the impetus for the poll.

Right after I posted that I misspelled Elsa's name, I also realized I misspelled Belloq's name, just figured there was no sense in drawing attention to yet another of my misspellings.

Whipping the Thugees, saving the children, and riding the mine car, not too many video games beat that!

I vote for Belloq, he was a greedy bastard but he had style.

Mola Ram isn't such a bad guy once you get to know him.

Shouldn't you use a spoiler tag in case anyone doesn't know Elsa is a villian?
