I don't like it when a villain all of the sudden becomes sadistic not because their character has been developed that way but as a cheap trick to get the audience to hate them more.

Whiney villains

Re: Characteristics Of A Villian You Can't Stand?

When they aren't given a clear motivation for their agenda, and when the wrong actor is chosen to play the character.

Re: Characteristics Of A Villian You Can't Stand?

When they are transparently evil or nasty, and yet inexplicably widely-loved or respected, at least at the beginning of the film or show.

Usually it's a less major villain that does this, but the protagonist, has one of the villains at gunpoint, and instead of the villain trying to talk him/her into letting them live, they decide to outright antagonize the protagonist by telling them something like "your wife deserved to die" or something along those lines, prompting them to kill them, and you don't buy it at all, and it's annoying, or at least I find.

Yeah. It happens more than once in I Saw The Devil (2010), for example.

Re: Characteristics Of A Villian You Can't Stand?

When they start to tell their whole plan to the good guy because they think he is going to die.

Not to steal the conversation or anything, but I saw From Russia with Love recently, where Grant does this to Bond, if that counts as an example?

Re: Characteristics Of A Villian You Can't Stand?

Everyone's a part of the conversation :)

I never saw it, so I couldn't tell ya, but I'm sure someone else can, especially after I've bumped this up.

James Bond movies are the biggest example. It is known as "evil gloating".
