    Charming fiend with a backbone of evil. Some of the best villains have played this archetype for sure.

    Charming Fiend, with a bit of schemer thrown in . . . you've got to have a brilliant villain, who is a bit of an anti-hero himself.

    Even though my fav is Vader, and he is more of a tyrant with some Charming Fiend thrown in, I have to go with the Fiend. Sidious, Pinhead, Hannibal, those are good examples even though they have elements of other archetypes mixed in.

    My favorite Villian is Hannibal Lecter, no question. He's calm, cool, collected, a genius, and he broke Starling in less than a week.

    The ultimate villian, and the representative of an archetype.

    Charming fiend.

    There's something loveable, even attractive, in regards to characters like these.

    It depends on the hero.

    If the hero is female, then I like Lunatic or Evil Genius villains.
    If the hero is male and not particularly hot, then I like Tyrant or Evil Genius villains.
    If the hero is male and hot, then I like a Sadist/Evil Genius combo.

    So I'm voting Evil Genius, although it depends.

    Charming Fiend, Evil Genius, Schemer

    Charming's the main thing, so I agree with most of the people here. ;)
