The Top 10 Douchebag Villains from 80s Teen Movies


Do you recognize William Zabka up there? If you’re a devotee of 80’s teen movies then you do even if you don’t realize it.
The staple of the teen-centric films of the 1980s was the role of the bullying douche. These guys always seemed to be good looking or rich or with the prettiest girl or popular or sometimes all of the above. And despite being blessed with so much they all were totally horrible human beings whose only goals in life were to make the already crappy existences of the social misfits in their circle suffer even more than they already were. So let’s take a look at the 10 douchebags who made it on my list.

10. Troy in The Goonies

Troy from the Goonies
Troy was a preppy dick whose daddy was behind the land grab that was forcibly relocating the families of The Goonies. Troy spent most of his time in the movie tormenting Brand (Josh Brolin) as part of his plan to win the hand of the fair Andy (Kerri Green). Troy also gets bonus points for the way he uttered THIS LINE in the movie.

  1. even though zabka made more appearances, james spader wears the scary bully crown for that steely sociopath glare of his. you were spot on with your imagined extrapolation of his life after high school. #willies lol!!!

    1. I only gave Zabka the top spot for his Karate kid role because i was not actively rooting for him to win like I was for Spader’s Steff in Pretty in Pink. I got swept up by Spader’s creepy charisma while I couldn’t wait for Johnny to get his comeuppance.

    1. Well I know for a fact that I preferred Johnny to Daniel-san on Karate Kid…I think a movie following Johnny around as he gets mentally abused by Sensei Kreese would have been great.

  2. You forgot Spader in Less than Zero. Any drug dealing college kid who pimps out a straight druggie to gay Johns is a royal D-bag villain.

      1. Y’know I don’t think I have ever seen Hot Dog the Movie; might have to give that one a watch since it sounds like I am missing some primo 80s douchebag action.
