Warning: These 5 Points Will Help You Create Awesome Female Villains

Warning: These 5 Points Will Help You Create Awesome Female Villains

What is it about women that just isn’t scary? Perhaps it’s because women represent motherhood and mothers are loving and caring. Or maybe it’s because we are (generally) smaller framed and not as physically strong as (most) men and therefore don’t epitomize the brutality of villainy.
Whatever the reason, when I asked you to list villains in the Who’s Your Ultimate Villain post, you gave me a list… but it had barely any women in it. The list included (but wasn’t limited to):

Cruella De Ville, Ursula, Professor Umbridge, Annie Wilkes, Nurse Ratched, Miranda Priestly and Alex Forest

Rather a small list if you ask me.

Live-movies_cruellaWhat gives me hope is that the AFI (American Film Institute) has their own list: 100 years… 100 Heroes and Villains. This breaks down into a list of the top 50 pairings, rather than a list of 100 heroes and 100 villains.

In 4th place is the Wicked Witch of the West and in 5th is Nurse Ratched. So, 2 of the top 5 are actually female. Promising… but of the list of 50 pairings, only 13 in total had female villains, and only a quarter of the best villains were female. Better than I expected, but not as good as it should be.

Why?

I wrote a previous post about the 6 Most Sinister Villain Personalities in which I discussed mental health and its relation to villains. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is frequently used as a mechanism to develop character in female villains. I think this is because it is widely seen as the more common female equivalent of psycho/sociopathy.

Examples of villains with BPD include: Eileen Wurnos from Monster, Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, Winona Ryder in Girl Interrupted and Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest.

Females can have psycho/sociopathy as it is not an illness constrained by gender but, it is less common in females. Perhaps this variance in gender distribution in BPD is why so many famous female villains have BPD instead of psycho/sociopathy. But isn’t this becoming a bit of a cliché? Shouldn’t we be developing a ‘different’, new and exciting kind of female villain rather than sticking to known stereotypes?

Briefly: BPD is marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships and typically more women than men have it. The four major areas affected are:

  • emotional instability (the psychological term for this is affective dysregulation)
  • disturbed patterns of thinking or perception (psychological terms for these are

cognitive or perceptual distortions)

  • impulsive behaviours
  • intense but unstable relationships with others

If you want a more detailed explanation of BPD visit the 6 Most Sinister Villain Personalities.

Crudely, I wonder if film makers and writers alike are entrenched in the societal concept that women are peaceful and caring, motherly, and to be ‘protected’ instead of writing stories with credible violent women?

What annoys me more, (and I’m trying not to get on my feminist soap box) is that they are all portrayed as insane, crazy, psycho bitches, often dressed in sexy clothes. It’s such a cliché, AND it’s boring.

So what can we do about it?

I refer back to my post discussing 6 Terror Tactics For Really Scary Villains. I focused on creating credible and believable villains. Personally, I don’t think you need to do anything different in creating a female villain to a male one. With one exception:

Credibility

Female villains don’t have much of a reputation; they are harder to market and less believable. It’s a sad fact, but it is true.

But, credibility creates believability which means better female villains. So how do we create credibility?

1.Core values – women as mothers (fathers too but I’m focusing on women) embody values. They teach and rear children and impart those values on their children. Strong core values are therefore crucial to a credible female villain.

That doesn’t mean a juicy villain’s values aren’t messed up and insane. It means that whatever their values are, they need to stick to them like glue. If they do, then they will be consistent which builds character. It also means your female villain has a reason to fight – villains will defend their values to the death just as much as your hero will.

 2.Integrity – although integrity is about doing the right things for the right reasons, if your female villain has core values (even if they seem illogical) she fights for them anyway, so she has integrity.

A villain fighting with integrity and thinking what they are doing is right for the right reasons is terrifying. Especially if what they are doing is horrific like mass genocide or torture, and here goes an inbuilt stereotype but, doesn’t it seem worst if it’s a woman doing it?

Your female villain should be able to give reasoned logical explanations for why they are doing what they are doing. If it’s good enough, their reason and logic might occasionally even make you believe what they are doing is right too!

 3.Authenticity – your villain needs to do exactly what they say they are going to do. Especially if that means torturing your main character or killing off a couple of major minor, or minor minor characters. Without following through on their convictions they become weak and flaky, another total cliché for a female villain, but worse – it makes them completely defeatable.

 4.Expertise – having an intelligent villain with expertise in a particular area means they know more than you do, especially more than your main character, and this makes them unbeatable.

It is possibly more essential that a female villain seem unbeatable in order to give them credibility. This is because you are starting from a lower baseline of audience perception and assumed reputation. 

5.Believability can come from playing on fears. I always think some of the scariest things in life are those that are the closest to reality, the ones that could almost be true.

A mother who lost her child and then lost everything else…driven to insanity, to murder…to villainy. Torture your female villains with their history. Make it intricate and detailed enough that their motives are believable and credible.

  1. Great article Sacha! I agree with all these points. I’d like to add unpredictability to the list, even though it may seem incongruous with core values/integrity/authenticity. There is nothing more terrifying than an unpredictable villain, especially when the unpredictability is still somehow in line with these core values. Carrie Grethen is a good example, one of the villains from the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. She is a computer genius and a sociopath and she can appear to be unpredictable, possibly due to her ability to stay one step ahead of Scarpetta. As the story progresses and new aspects to her character unfold, the patterns are revealed.

    1. Thanks Grace, oooh thats a really good point. I hadn’t thought of unpredictability. I guess there is a fine balance between ensuring character consistency, and also being true to the nature of humans – which is in itself unpredictable.

      I love Kay Scarpetta – but have only read up to predator – so think that character is in after no? I forget its been a while since I read them.

      1. I love Scarpetta too. I believe Carrie Grethen is introduced during “The Body Farm”, one of the best in the series (IMHO). The first Scarpetta books in order: 1 – Postmortem, 2 – Body of Evidence, 3 – All That Remains, 4 – Cruel and Unusual, 5 – The Body Farm.

  2. As something of an aside, I think we (sweeping generalisation alert) are too fast and loose with the word ‘disorder’, when we are frequently looking at a mindset that does not fit the societal norm. We don’t have to go back too far to find that a woman who chose to have a baby out of wedlock would be committed as insane, that homosexuality was ‘curable’ — and try googling “atheism is a sickness”.
    I was recently moved by a blog post by ‘takingthemaskoff’ – http://takingthemaskoff.com/2015/08/09/stigmakilledrobinwilliams/ – that has set me thinking about so-called BPD and the like and looking at these ‘disorders’ in a different light. I think Della Jont has more possibilities, too.

  3. Great post! My favourite villain of all time is Delores Umbridge. She’s pretty tame in the world of villainy admittedly, but she reminds me of a former boss I used to have – sneaky and underhanded and will stab you in the back at a moments notice to get what she wants, and will do so with a smile on her face whilst hiding behind self-imposed rules.

  4. What makes a credible female villain? The same things that make a male villain credible (and there’s the equality you were looking for). Determination, drive, motive, and consistency, as you mentioned. Take the step-mother in Cinderella for a simple example. She was determined to see one of her daughters married to the prince. Her drive to make this happen meant sprucing up her daughters so that they were as attractive as possible while excluding the dirty little rag they called Cinderella. Her motive was climbing up the social ladder. She did everything in her power to manipulate events so that one of her daughters might obtain the crown. Voila, she becomes the ‘wicked’ step-mother, because we consistently see her without morals, without a sense of fairness, without empathy. Thanks for this post, Sacha, excellent points.

      1. The lack of female villains might be connected to the stereotype of women as nurturers. But, that’s the BEST reason to use a female as a villain, as it creates such a shock to go against the stereotype. Annie Wilkes in Misery was a hit because the psychology behind her derangement combined nurturing with her psychosis (she was willing to play nice as long as her victim did as she asked), making her that much more believable. Interesting subject for sure.

      1. I wrote my second book as a very trad thriller. Bit too trad really. But you’ve made me think. If the villain was a woman, that might just lift it out of the mundane. The story entered on people trafficking but if I was to rewrite it I’d use those poor souls in Sangatte trying to get across the channel as the subject matter.

  5. Tough question because I always think a villain’s motives and tactics are what make them great regardless of gender. Never really wondered why there are so few female villains or why they tend to be the type to go hero or atone at some point in the story. I tend to like my villains cruel and determined, but that still doesn’t seem to be female specific.

    Did nobody mention Maleficient, Mystique, the main baddie from ‘Willow’, Xenia Onatopp, and the Evil Queen? Then again, those are all older villains. I can’t even think of an impressive new female villain. Ma-Ma from the movie ‘Dredd’ is about it. Could people be avoiding using women as bad guys since there’s a big public outcry for more female heroes?

    1. Great comment Charles. Now…. Maleficient came up on twitter – I would challenge Maleficient because I always thought she was an antihero? What do you think?

      Mystique is an interesting one – she isn’t really a main character though – and pales behind Magneto… who is the real mastermind. I guess I was looking for lead female villains.

      Where’s the evil queen from?

      Its a really good point about the outcry for female heroes… thats another bug bear of mine – whats with all the identi-clone female heroes in YA fiction? sigh….

      1. I always thought she was pure evil going by Disney and the Kingdom Hearts games. It’s only recently that she’s been made to be more sympathetic, which I didn’t really like. There are so few truly evil female villains that it was a shame to alter one of the great ones.

        I was thinking comic book Mystique more than movies. She’s one of the big villains, anti-heroes, or whatever she wants to be at the time. Same goes for White Queen who was so poorly used in First Class and then killed between movies. Unfortunately, superhero movies have a habit of minimizing a villain when they’re in a henchman role. Toad, Mystique, and Sabertooth were all big villains in the comics with the former two leading bad guy groups and the latter just being all around menacing. Don’t even get me started on Lady Deathstryke and Dark Phoenix. Ugh. They couldn’t even get Calisto of the Morlocks right and I’m just angrily ranting at this point.

        I was thinking the Evil Queen from Snow White, but I’ve been watching ‘Once Upon a Time’. So I might be off on that one.

        The cloning is probably because movie was made on one and they’re going to milk it dry. Kind of like when Twilight was big, everyone went for vampire stories. Harry Potter kicked off interest in chosen one fantasy series. The big thing now is the ‘strong, female heroine for young girls to look up to’. It’s causing some really strange actions on the part of those trying to make money.

  6. Interesting post Sacha. It is true what you say about the usual female villians – they are often deranged/unstable/psychotic. Strength (physical) may not be necessary, but logic and wiles may be. Steampunk seems like a genre suited to strong female villains. But then it depends what sort of villains you are talking about.

  8. Nurse Ratched. But, the ones that get me are the ones like Prof. Umbridge–sweet and “feminine” and sugary and pure evil. That body language that contradicts their actions. Creepy. Also…pink fluffy kitten decor? Great touch. Love the post and it made me think that, although there are some fantastic female villains out there, I’ve just chosen two who have already been mentioned so I’m either not thinking hard enough or there aren’t enough to choose from.

    There are some amazing female “villains” in Buffy (some could argue): Drusilla, Darla, Professor Walsh, Glory, and, for a short time, Willow (brilliant). Don’t know if Faith counts but I’m counting her. I love the backstory for all these characters. So vastly different.

It’s a REALLY good point – I can just visualise Umbridge’s mouth – the way the corner edges up just a tiny bit when she’s torturing harry – perfect – utterly perfect.

      It’s not you – there just isn’t enough out there.

      Drusilla was good – but she was the iconic crazy psycho – so doesn’t stand out the crowd for me. I did love buffy though. Now Willow… willow rocked my world and not just cause she was a lezza!! haha, but because of what drove her to evil, because it was true and real and believable. That Sarah, is an awesome example of a villain.

  9. I think the Evil Stepmother from Cinderella is one of the most truly scary villains…Disney or otherwise. And she hits most of the checkmarks…she was all about her daughters, but just a meanie on top of that. Far scarier to me than Ursula (who was also scary) and the other magical villains.

    There are a lot of ways to approach a villain, they can be the over-the-top crazy-ass psychos who blow up worlds, or the family man who is involved in organized crime. I think the key to a really good villain is the commitment and integrity angle. They believe in their cause and view the hero/heroine as blocking their path to their goal.

It reminded me of something Alan Rickman (not a woman, I admit) once said about playing baddies. I don’t remember exactly how he expressed it, but it was along the lines of, “The thing you have to remember about baddies is they never think they’re the baddie. In their mind, they’re the goodie.”

    Incidentally, I’m not sure anyone who has ever seen my wife upset about something would believe that women can’t be scary. Doesn’t happen often, of course, and when it does I bravely hide in the bathroom and let the kids deal with it.

    Some of the old old fairy tales/myths have some pretty evil/fierce/dangerous women – who have be made much milder in modern versions. In the original story, Hansel and Gretel’s mother/step mother was pretty scary. “Simply to evil and bad and would frighten the children…” So rewrite. Medusa?

I watch a lot of soap operas and they have have had some of the most scariest of female villains I have have ever seen or read about. In fact I’ve seen more female murderers than male murderers in my time of watching the soaps and it still always comes as a shock because we always think a woman could not have possibly done the crime. They are living everyday norman lives (or we like to think that are), and it is that concept alone which makes them so bloody scary (excuse the swearing there).

Specifically, in one story I have the hero looks like the Jason Voorhees/ Michael Myers villain (he’s even mute due to a birth defect). He’s also severely dyslexic, limiting his ability to write anything. Despite appearances though, he’s highly intelligent and does understand language even if he can’t initially communicate (he ends up learning sign language in the story which is why everything comes out). His sister is a high-functioning violent sociopath though of the religious extremist sort. She loves her routines, staying on top of the latest fashions and generally just fitting in with the society around her (volunteers a lot, receptionist at the local college, upstanding member at the local church, that kind of thing).

  23. Coming from several generations of a law-enforcement family, I know of statistics showing that there is a significantly higher instance of men committing crimes than women in general. This is not to say that women do not commit crimes; it’s just saying that of those who do commit crimes and are convicted of them, the vast majority are men. I’m not saying that women don’t make great villains; they do (if written correctly) as I have written many in various novels and stories. I think that the stereotype of women not being villains is more based on this particular statistic than what it is society’s general stifling and objectification of women. Not to say that the latter isn’t an issue; I just don’t think it’s the main issue in this scenario.

  24. I feel like every villain has a typical backstory (bad childhood, dead/scorned lover) or a typical reasons like their own ethics and such. How would you go about creating a villain that is evil just because there was nothing better to do? A villain that doesn’t have BPD, had a normal childhood, and is just evil to cure their boredom. Or would that not make a convincing villain?
