What’s up AEE Universe, I’m sure you have been misunderstood before Well these Disney villains can relate. Let’s take a look at 5 Disney villains that were actually not that bad.
5. Hyenas in Lion King
One of the saddest scenes is seeing Simba see his dad die while he was trying to save him. That was because of that dirtbag Scar. I am not here to save him.
However, the ones that get a bad rap are the hyenas. These are starving creatures that are trying to find a better way of life for themselves.
Did they happen to follow an idiot/monster that ruined their way of life? Yes. I think a lot of people can relate to following an idiot leader once in their lives. Just learn to ration a little bit better hyenas.
4. Hades in Hercules
Hades from “Hercules” was treated like garbage. Talk about the ugly girl not included in the party. His biggest mistake was being left out of the fun.
Everyone on Mount Olympus drinks and celebrates every day. The Gods have given the worst job to Hades and are surprised when he is not grateful. are you really surprised the guy working in the mailroom for 20 years doesn’t want the CEO position?
He is trying to make big moves. Plus spending eternity in hell gives you a lot of time to think about revenge.
Maybe treat your subordinates a little bit better next time and you won’t have to worry about Titans breaking through your Gates.
3. Ursula in The Little Mermaid
“The Little Mermaid” is a story about finding true love no matter where you started from. Ariel the mermaid wants to go to the land to find her love. She goes to Triton so that he will help her. He refuses. She then goes and makes a deal with Ursula the sea witch.
Ursula makes the deal, tells her the details of the contract and then Ariel signs it. Is it a tough, mean deal? Without a doubt! Ariel came to Ursula though. She begged to make some magic happen and the sea witch obliged. You don’t like the terms of a contract? Then you better not sign on the dotted line.
Ursula wasn’t a villain, she was just a good businesswoman. As far as motivations go it’s not exactly taking over the world. If I could get out of some terrible business moves right now I would. I wish I could have a prince steer a ship into some of the timeshare deals I have.
2. Shere Khan in The Jungle Book
The story of “The Jungle Book” is one of my favorites. Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther help raise the man-cub child named Mowgli. Everything is fine in the jungle, it is a life of relaxation, except for one thing.
The danger that lurks in the shadows, a tiger named Shere Khan. Shere Khan is a predator who does not like man. He threatens the fire and death that man brings to all animals. He is also absolutely correct.
There are events such as deforestation, trophy hunting, oil spills, etc. Man has not exactly looked out for animals as much as Bagheera and Baloo had hoped. Maybe next time we should listen to the prolific tiger and realize the danger might be real.
1. Gaston in The Beauty and The Beast
The more I watch “The Beauty and the Beast” the more I realize that the hero is Gaston. Pride is definitely a sin that this character has. If being vain is worthy of being killed for, the cast of Jersey Shore should run. So should most of Instagram for that matter.
He loves Belle and wants to marry her. He obviously sees she is clever and charming. If he just wants to be with a pretty face he had his pick of the dumb bimbos but wants her. Even after she is kidnapped by the Beast and her father begs the town to save her, it is only after Gaston leads the town, that they go to help her.
Sure he has Belle’s dad committed to an asylum. I mean that was a dick move, but crazy old Maurice did make a wood chopping machine that was sure to kill a couple of villagers before the kinks were worked out.
Gaston was a misogynist for sure and certainly labeled as one of the biggest Disney villains BUT in large he was only guilty of trying to save the woman he loved from a monster that turned out to not be that bad.
