Today's Quick Question Challenge is:
Who is your favorite video game villain?
Mine is undoubtedly the villain of FFVI - Kefka Palazzo.
Kefka isn't just a psychopathic clown-looking guy. He starts the game out being something of a joke to the player, a foolish court mage who is doing the bidding of the evil Emperor Gestahl. He sets fire to Figaro Castle, and he is responsible for Terra's imprisonment. That's only the tip of his evil iceberg, though.
He later poisons a river, killing hundreds of people with no hesitation. Then he orchestrates the massacre of the Espers, taking the magicite they leave behind so that he may become more powerful. Ultimately, he murders the emperor and disrupted the balance of the Warring Triad so that he could ascend to the level of a god.
And he wins. He tears the world asunder and reigns over it as a violent, tyrannical god. A cult develops that worships him. For a year, he is the reigning power of the land. Of course, you ultimately defeat him, but until then, he was the greatest villain of all time.
