Ranking the top 5 Far Cry villains from worst to best
Far Cry has some of the most truly iconic villains in the history of video games, and here is a ranking of the best Far Cry antagonists.
From crazed cult leaders to flashy dictators, Far Cry has given players some iconic villains, and we’ve decided to rank the main ones from worst to best.
Ubisoft has done a fabulous job in creating some truly captivating characters that have lived long in memory. They’ve perfectly complemented the lush, gorgeous open worlds that the Far Cry games love for players to lose hours to.
Some have not quite hit the heights, whereas others have been catapulted onto the Hollywood walk of insane. The legacy already left behind by some of Far Cry’s bad guys has seen them make countless lists for their evilness and foul intentions.
We’ve already ranked the main Far Cry games from worst to best, so today, it’s our turn to take the absolute best villains that Far Cry has produced and rank them from worst to best.
5. The Jackal
Cold, calculated, cool. But who is he? That’s one of the fascinating mysteries about The Jackal and Far Cry 2 that people still debate to this day. Conversely, that confusion also hurts the idea of The Jackal as we don’t truly know who it is.
The perceived Jackal has a tough demeanor and a deep, grizzly voice to back up his tough-guy actions, but again, are you The Jackal? We’ll never know.
4. Joseph Seed
“The Father” is your stereotypical cult leader that will force his will upon others until they see the light. His beliefs and way of life are partially caused by a damaged childhood, and his words and teachings became so great that he was able to artificially create a family – The Seeds.
Joseph’s missteps are that he’s an evil cult leader that’s been before. His motives are fueled by God, and he believes he’s the key to enlightenment. However, his standing as an all-time villain is boosted by his destructive actions at the end of Far Cry 5.
3. Faith Seed
A surprising entry to some, but Faith Seed is definitely the most interesting character in Far Cry 5. Her hallucinogenic drug makes for some exceptional scenarios, and her heartwarming performance almost makes you feel sorry for her.
Her storyline ends in a dramatic encounter that incorporates all of Faith’s beliefs, teachings, and her Bliss drug. She is a superb character and made for an even more interesting villain than Joseph Seed.
2. Pagan Min
The only thing that hinders Pagan Min’s chances of stealing the top spot, like he stole our hearts, is his fleeting screen time. Sometimes less is more, but in this case, we think gamers would definitely like to have seen more.
The beauty of Pagan Min is that his ruthless dictatorship is overlooked by his endless charm, and his incredible pink suit and white hair combo. His words acted more as his weapons, although our introduction to him does feature a rather brutal welcome.
1. Vaas Montenegro
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. “
Now, Vaas added his own choice words to this famous saying, but his words ring true as he literally implies that all bad guys are the same. Ubisoft’s ultimate villain technically wasn’t even the main villain in Far Cry 3 – that’s how much he claimed the spotlight.
Every time Vaas eyeballs you with his non-blinking, intimidating expression, you hang onto every word he says. To this day, Michael Mando’s portrayal of Vaas is still spoken highly of, and that’s because he’s the best villain in Far Cry history.
