(PS: the reason why some characters on the wrong side of the law are not included is that the poll mostly focusses on characters those vileness is not only clearly established but also significant to the plot, for instance, Michael Corleone might be a villain in "The Godfather Part II", but technically, Vito is still the 'good guy' in the first opus...)
