The Craziest Mad Scientists In Video Games

Mad scientists and evil masterminds are classic villain archetypes, and defeating them is always nerve-wracking. Instead of facing you, they would rather hide in the shadows and rely on their minions. And when it does come to combat, they usually love to show off their deadliest creations.

We gathered some well-known crazies; a moustache or a white coat seems to be a must-have.

    What about Dr Nefarious? His name implies some sort of doctoral training. And I like how his name is directly to the point in terms of his intentions.

    Damn Dr Monkey-for-a-head, he stole my childhood innocence! Saved all my pennies for Earth Worm Jim 2... and then finsihed it wihtin 4 hours. Felt so ripped off :(
