Fear/Intimidation Factor
If you are an adult, then Syndrome is TERRIFYING, and for entirely different reasons than any other villain on this countdown.  Not only is he this incredibly intelligent guy who's got all these inventions to make him comparable to a superhero, it's how he got to be a villain that's so terrifying.  Syndrome starts out as a little boy who idolizes Mr. Incredible, when Mr. Incredible gives him the brush off, it shows Buddy that he can't rely on his heroes and sends him down the road toward villainy.  See? One little brush off, and you were responsible for creating a villain who's killed dozens of your fellow superheroes.  YIKES. 

OUCH

OUCH

Character Design
That chin... I can't get past that chin.

Profound revelations from Syndrome.AKA Our country's foreign policy.

Wit & Quotability
The highest score yet in this countdown for this category.  Jason Lee brings psychotic enthusiasm to every deliriously brilliant and profound thing that spews out of Syndrome's mouth.  I'm still shuddering.

Uh oh, is that socialism?? THANKS, OBAMA

Memorability
Syndrome has, as hinted at above, some of the best and richest writing of any Pixar villain.  That terrifying aspect also makes him falter a bit when it comes to being an embraceable villain.  He's almost... too sympathetic? Not unlike Lotso. 

He's got a point, yet again...

He's got a point, yet again...

Sidekicks
This is the weak score.  Syndrome has a lady sidekick, but she's soooo.... not... anything.  She neither adds nor detracts, she's just pretty. Meh.

Hey gurl...

Hey gurl...
