To be honest, I find both Tenpenny and Dmitri pretty much on the same level. If I had to say which one is better then it's a tie for me. They are equally good but they have different styles.

 

Now, which one is my favourite, then it's Tenpenny no doubt:

 

-The guy showed you how much of an asshole he was right at the beggining. Him and Pulaski ganging up on Carl and mocking him all the time like a pair of bullies made me hate him so much. I f*cking despise bullies.

-He was very funny. He had some hilarious quotes here and there and he was very entertaining to watch.

-Amazing voice acting. I was very young when I first played SA and I had no idea who Samuel L. Jackson was. So the whole "he wouldn't be gud without samuel" idea is bullsh*t. He wouldn't be good without a good voice actor, just like every videogame character.

Wu "Kenny" Lee wasn't good enough to get to the list huh? Although I wouldn't vote for him but still.

 

Voted for Dimitri. The only Gta protagonist I hated.

 

I didn't see Tenpenny as a menace. I didn't like Pulaski though, such a racist F**k.

Dimitri. I'll be honest I didn't see him turning. Devin is egotistical but we knew he was a douche and Steve had a TV show that was somewhat entertaining.

 

Why is Wei Chang on that list? He is probably the least appearing antagonist in the history of gaming.

Nawh, GTA1's Sonetti is the first. He didn't make any appearance at all, he's only mentioned.

When I was little I thought Big Smoke was a good guy, but the he was actually working with the Ballas.

I'm glad that CJ killed that a*shole.

If you're gonna put Stretch on there, you might as well put a potato too.

Dimitri gets my vote, simply for being such a machiavellian nemesis. I actually didn't see his heel turn coming on my first playthrough of IV, but luckily it didn't feel contrived when you think back to how he'd been manipulating Niko to turn on Faustin. I also liked how his gang managed to be a pretty much omnipresent menace throughout the story, staying mainly in the shadows but always a threat.

 

Pegorino makes the better final boss, but only becuase in my mind Niko would never attempt to make a deal with Dimitri.

Tenpenny for sure. He was such a dick with no remorse or conscience. The very definition of an Anti-Social personality.

Ikr. All it took for Stretch to be the bad guy was appear in one mission and BAM he's a main antagonist.

Frank Tenpenny, besides that he's voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, I think he's a badass of a character.

 

Looks like SA and IV had the greatest antagonists, it's a shame that V's were so sh*tty. Someone voted for Weston and Wei-Cheng?...

Dimitri Rascalov, when he betrays Niko early on in the game, you just gain pure hatred as throughout the game he seems to be one step ahead of you. It's why I pick Revenge over Deal each and every time.

Dimitri obviously because he was a rat and he betrayed Niko for helping him kill Mikhail just to take his own empire for himself and he kidnapped Roman and he pretended to be a good guy to Niko and everyone else he met.

Big Smoke and Dimitri. I kind of saw that Dimitri would betrayed Niko but never thought he'd end up being the main antagonist for Niko. Well, he was such a prick and that's what made him a good antagonist.

 

I never expected Big Smoke to betray CJ to be honest. I knew he didn't show up anymore until the main mission but his action almost destroyed Grove Street with drugs. Sweet even almost tried it once.

This poll is hopefully to settle a long lasting debate between GTA fans and find out who is the communities favourite antagonist (bad guy) of the series. I didn't include the games GTA, GTA II and GTA Advance because I haven't played the first two in a lot of depth and I haven't played Advance at all so I hope this doesn't hinder the poll in anyway or cause any major issues.

 

My personal favourite antagonist has to be Officer 'Frank' Tenpenny, everything about the character for me is just pure genius and I remember as a kid everytime I used to hear the music to his scenes (

) I used to be thinking ohhh shiiiit what these boys gunna be playing at now. On the intro to the game before you even get to control CJ, Tenpenny and Pulaski are already harassing you and threatening to frame you for the murder of a cop (which they obvs did xD) then to drop you in Ballas territory and tell you they'll find you when they need you pure corruptness and evil right there. CJ plays the victim throughout most of the game to these corrupt cops, Tenpenny in particular and they force him to do missions for him, get them information, kill people and also they step on CJ whenever they can and however they can, Tenpenny seems to enjoy antagonising CJ and playing the puppet master. As the game progresses it becomes clearer that Tenpenny is pulling the strings behind many major gang members and criminals in Los Santos including Big Smoke, Ryder and the Ballas. He causes a lot of problems for CJ such as Sweet being sent to jail, Ryder and Smoke backstabbing the gang and also any favours CJ seems to do for Tenpenny get then later used against him as blackmail to do more tasks for him. The ending of Officer Tenpenny has to be one of the coolest and meaningful endings of any of the games in the series (maybe equal to IV) as this bastard that has been terrorising and making life hard for you since the start of the story (he literally is the first character CJ interacts with in the game) finally gets what has been coming to him and the way the gang stand over his body and CJ kicks it over with his foot and walk away from the chaos back onto Grove Street is honestly amazing.

 

Please vote and leave a description as to who is your favourite antagonist of the series is if I have missed any out please let me know, enjoy :).

Catalina for me personally. In two games she has appeared she is a total annoying bitch and make you hate her so much ( which is why she is successful and best antagonist).

But i know Tennpanny will win the poll.

EDIT: LOL @ Massimo Torrini on the list

Massimo Torrini xD I have seen people cry on other polls about characters from all the games not being included so I added him to it

f*cking Dimitri for me.

Yeah Dimitri is definitely the most evil character of the game I think by the end of GTA IV I was actually getting triggered by him irl and couldn't wait to end him haha such a heartless and cold character. For me Dimitri is close second but Tenpenny clinches it he's definitely not as evil as Dimitri but I think he has a little more depth than Dimitri and I imagine is an accurate account of what corrupt cops could be like back then.

Definitely Tenpenny. He's the best antagonist. Anyways 'GTA: San Andreas' was the best GTA ever. The story was really good and longer than the following editions.

 

However, I think Dimitri Rascalov was a good antogonist too.

How about Cliffford? He's already better than any of the sorry excuses in the single player. He could give GTA Online a proper story (even if that story is us becoming superheroes to stop Cliffford from taking over the world).
