5. Kefka Palazzo – “Final Fantasy VI”
Some villains stick with you because of their strengths while others stick with you because they’re just too disturbing to forget. The latter is the case with Kefka Palazzo, the main villain of “Final Fantasy VI.” It’s bad enough that he dresses up as a clown, but his cackling laugh and the joy he draws from pain and suffering is downright unsettling. Imagine if The Joker was made into a living god, and was blessed with enough magical power to incinerate people with a glance, and you’ll start to see why Kefka remains one of the most unforgettable RPG bosses.
