We are nearing a close in the Ultimate Villain Tournament as the final four baddies go head to head for the top spot. This match up pits Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds vs. Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York. Which antagonist would be able to pull off their villainous scheme? Take a look at our character breakdowns and tell us who you think is the bigger threat.
Of course, Nazis are the worst but this guy is on another level. He definitely would still be killing people even if he didn’t have Nazi Germany as an excuse because he loves the hunt way more than he hates Jews. He’s so chilling that he can make the delightful creme on your pastry curdle with a single stare.
Strengths: Highly intelligent and observant, masterful at tracking down people, loyal to no one but his own interests
Weaknesses: Ego makes him believe he’s untouchable
Bill’s villainy lies in his political aspirations. He is willing to manipulate and murder to get what he wants and he thoroughly believes what he wants is best for everyone. Though he is a good fighter, he is also a very well-spoken and intelligent man and this is his greatest threat. Bill the Butcher is strong, but has a lot of enemies and is just an ordinary man. He has the perfect combination of attributes to strike fear into his enemies who are against his views.
Strengths: Strong, smart and well-spoken. Excellent knife-throwing abilities.
Weaknesses: Has a lot of enemies. No match for shrapnel.
