Stories are always as good as their villains, they create the conflict, they drive the hero's journey and their eventual demise is integral to the viewer's satisfaction. In other words, they make the story.

And these are the ones who made the earliest stories, if not the first, technically speaking, they made the first real impact on viewers, and forged the archetype that prevailed for years and years, in their respective genres.

So, which of these 'seminal' villains would you say was the most influential?


(discounting from the list, the "train" arriving at La Ciotat or the boy stepping on the hose in the "Sprinkled Sprinkler", as these shorts weren't meant as movies in our usual terms of references)
