Ya know, folks usually post to tell you to correct what you did wrong with the lists, and........I'm going to do it to, because you forgot one of the best in the sci-fi/fantasy/comic book genres....

 

Bob the Goon from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman. Played by the wonderful Tracey Walter, Bob was perfect: he was there with Jack when he "made" Batman, he was with him at Axis, led the 'hostile takeover' of Grissom's council. He did every thing that was asked of him, right up to handing the Joker his own handgun that was used to kill him.

 

Let's raise a toast to Bob the Goon!!!

I like Grima, Destro and of course Igor but Grover Dill? I'd take Mini Me over Grover Dill lol. It's also funny to have a henchmen list with no mention of James Bond villians wtf. Odd Job? Jaws? Al Leong would own Grover Dill 6 ways from sunday...

Darth Vader?

How about everybody on the Bride's death list from Kill Bill and the Crazy 88s

Agree with Chop about Bond's nemesis like Jaws and Odd Job

Eowyn is the niece, not is daughter. Just so you know.

While it's true that Darth Vader worked for The Emperor, henchman doesn't really do his position justice.  Proper henchmen are around strictly to do their master's bidding.  Vader was always working towards solidifying the power of The Empire, but he was given an extrememly free hand in how he chose to accomplish that goal.  The Emperor's Hand, Mara Jade is closer to being a henchman, but even there the description isn't entirely apt.  She also was granted a large degree of freedom to act independently on her own initiative.  I'm sure that The Emperor had some true henchmen, but we just never saw them in the movies.  The films were too wide of scope across the galaxy to take the time to show The Emperor sending on of his henchmen out to deal with some local regional governor who displeased him.

Fritz would be my number 1. He's everything you want in a henchmen: loyal, stupid and mean.

Wyldstaar, The Emperor's unseen henchmen takes his lunch order in the well known Robot Chicken short.

My vote for #1 would be Smee from Peter Pan.  Smee was Captain Hook's henchman and he was vile, all while looking so harmless and grandfatherly (for a pirate).

I wouldn't list Destro on this, his position in the Cobra heirarchy, while not quite equal to Cobra Commander, was conciderably higher than 'henchman'.  Nor would I put in Grover Dill simply on the fact that I can't stand that movie.  I never understood the fascination with Christmas Story, it always seemed like the worst Chistmas film this side of Santa Claus vs The Martians and The Santa Slayer, yet half a dozen TV stations devote full-day marathons to it.

Good call, Kara...I was just talking about him last night...a friend of mine who led a ridiculously sheltered life growing up has never seen "Hook", so that's how Smee found his way into conversation...love Bob Hoskins' portrayal. 

And I know that this list is for despicable henchmen, but my favorites are still #21 and #24 from "The Venture Brothers"!

In the comics Destro DID take off his mask, along with the Cobra Commander. They both just wore shades and stupid beards and moustaches, So there really wasn't anything worth seeing.
