The Top 10 Douchebag Villains from 80s Teen Movies


07. Stan Gable in Revenge of the Nerds

Stan Gable from Revenge of the Nerds
Ted McGinley had to be in his 40s when he played Alpha Beta president Stan Gable. I mean he was playing a teacher on Happy Days at the time wasn’t he? Anyhoo, Stan had a pathological hatred of nerds which led to him trying his damnedest to destroy the nerdy members of the Tri-Lambs.

    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!!!

      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.

    Man there’s a really meta movie here somewhere following these characters instead of the ‘protagonists’ . . .

      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.

    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.

      Oh yeah, Spader was a colossal ass in Less Than Zero.

        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.
