Top 5 Christmas Anti-Heroes: Who Is Your Favorite?
By far Christmas's most popular anti-hero, Ebenezer Scrooge embodies everything that the spirit of Christmas--and humanity--stands against. That is, until a few ghosts shake the bah humbug out of him.
He's as cuddly as a cactus, as charming as an eel, and as bad as a banana with a greasy black peel. Turns out he's not a fan of Christmas, either. But sometimes the darkest hearts undergo the biggest change...
Avarice incarnate. When Clarence asks his boss if Mr. Potter is a king, the angel replies, "No, that is Henry Potter, the richest and meanest man in the county!" He wasn't joking.
Herr Burgermeister Meisterburger
We almost picked him solely because of his incredible name, but Herr Meisterburger is still one of the nastiest villains Christmas has ever seen. Seriously, who makes toys illegal? Burgermeister, that's who.
In the year 3000, Christmas has been abbreviated to Xmas and a programming error has switched Robot Santa's naughty list from coal to kill. Never send a machine to do a jolly fat man's job.
In fact, some of the greatest anti-heroes of all time made their names on their crooked Christmas spirits. Ebenezer Scrooge's bah-humbugging paved the way for mean-spirited money grubbers like Mr. Potter and Herr Meisterburger.
There are even some infamous cartoon baddies hell-bent on ruining things for the rest of us, like Robot Santa, who turned Christmas into a yearly massacre, and The Grinch, who stole it.
