Alright, fine, I'll count Hitler as the 2nd greatest villain of all time... The next one I'll submit as my main antagonist... You all should know him easily since he's been present in videogames quite often.
He's the The Ace of Knaves, The Harlequin of Hate! The One and Only Clown Prince of Crime...
"If I weren't crazy, I'd be insane!"

and he always puts the laughter in slaughter.
The Joker is the clown-based, insane, homicidal arch-nemisis of Batman, he sports comedic weapons such as a deck of bladed playing cards, an acid-squirting flower, cyanide-stuffed pies, exploding cigars filled with nitroglycerin, harpoon guns that utilize razor-sharp BANG!-flags, and a lethally electric joy buzzer (Just to name a few). His most prominent weapon is his Joker venom, a deadly poison that infects his victims with a ghoulish rictus grin as they die while laughing uncontrollably.The Joker is highly intelligent and skilled in the fields of chemistry and engineering, as well an expert with explosives.From his first appearance onward, he has been consistently portrayed as capable of hijacking broadcasts - usually news programs - of both the television and radio varieties. Joker is a very skilled fighter, capable of holding his own against Batman in hand-to-hand combat. His versatility in combat is due in part to his own extensive array of hidden gadgets and weapons on his person that he often pulls out on a moment's whim (rolling a handful of explosive marbles on the ground, retractable knives attached to his spats, etc.)He is, however, consistently described as agile.The Joker has cheated death numerous times, even in seemingly inescapable and lethal situations. He has been seen caught in explosions, been shot repeatedly, dropped from lethal heights, electrocuted, and so on, but he always returns once again to wreak havoc. Joker's mental state is in fact a previously unprecedented form of "super-sanity," a form of ultra-sensory perception. It also suggests that he has no true personality of his own, that on any given day he can be a harmless clown or a vicious killer, depending on which would benefit him the most. Scarecrow turns on the Joker and uses his fear gas to see what Joker is afraid of. To Scarecrow's surprise, the gas has no effect on Joker, who in turn beats him with a chair.

"What are you really scared of Bats? Not being able to save Commissioner Gordon in time? failing to save this cesspool of a city? Me...IN A THONG?"
"I did it! I finally killed Batman! In front of a bunch of vulnerable, disabled, kids!!!! Now get me Santa Claus!"
"In my dream, the world had suffered a terrible disaster. A black haze shut out the sun, and the darkness was alive with the moans and screams of wounded people. Suddenly, a small light glowed. A candle flickered into life, symbol of hope for millions. A single tiny candle, shining in the ugly dark. I laughed and blew it out."
See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum... And one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum any more. They decide they're going to escape! So, they get up onto the roof, and there, just across the narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moonlight... Stretching away to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem. but his friend daredn't make the leap Y'see... He's afraid of falling. So then, the first guy has an idea... He says "Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk across the beam and join me!" But the second guy just shakes his head. He says "What do you think I am? CRAZY!?... You'd turn it off when I was half way across!"
"What's up, doc? Need to take my temperature? I'd be happy to drop my pants."
"Good evening, residents of Joker Asylum! Some of our...crazier guests have crashed the party early, and when I say crazy, I mean REAL psycho. Word of warning, if anyone sees a dribbling fool barking at the the moon or maybe just purring like a kitten, do your civic duty. Walk up to them, put your arm around them, show them that you care...before you wring their necks!"
"You dirty rat! You killed my brother! My sister! My daughter! She's my sister and my daughter!"
"Lady, you're harder to kill than a cockroach on steroids"
"Quick question. When the clock strikes twelve, do I get a little kiss?"
There, now I'm happy. Let's see if anyone comes up with a notable villain that's not covered yet.
