We had an anonymous critter request a while back for us to create a list of villains and information about their intentions and deeds. There have been a lot of big bads over the course of 99 episodes, so many that we can't do them justice in one post. We're breaking them up by story arc, ending with the villains Vox Machina faced so far after the Conclave, as well as the folks who didn't quite make it to Villain status, but were still pretty unlikable.
