Villains on Trial

This year at Dragon*Con, we are going to hold a trial for various villains of literary science fiction and fantasy. Fun, right? Unfortunately, I'm having trouble deciding which villains I should suggest to our fearless leader, vampry. Any ideas, peanut gallery?

I would say Satan figures (like Sauron, the White Witch, etc.) are out mainly because they're not meant to be ambiguous - and also because we would have a lot of trouble role-playing an unblinking eye. *g*

ETA: And just to clarify, we're looking for villains from books, as we are the literature programming track. *g* (The number of media suggestions makes me wish we could collaborate with the media track, though.)
