Despite no obvious main villain for the second season of Chapter 3, Fortnite has a nice history of them.
Fortnite isn’t a game known for its villains. It’s all about player-to-player combat and crafting. Yet, to many outside of the Fortnite sphere, you might be surprised to find out that the game does in fact have villains. Ones you can actually battle, from time to time.
Granted, most of the villains are used in cinematic cutscenes or “events” that you experienced, and not so much play, but the game has them for sure.
That’s what we’re talking about today, the five most notable villains, ranked, by their design.
The five most unique villains ranked by their design
5. The Visitor
The Visitor is actually a member of The Seven, heroes of Fortnite but he was responsible for some shenanigans in season one. His design is in line with the rest of The Seven’s, which is to say it’s unoriginal and uninspired.
How you feel about Galactus as a whole will determine how you view him in Fortnite as a villain. His purple and light red look was replaced with a deep red lined, black base look, and it was fine. It was certainly a spectacle to see his size in the game, but as far as unique looks and designs go, he comes up short.
Midas has a golden hand and suspenders. He may be an “iconic” villain but he looks like a high school play’s version of a Dick Tracy villain. If that’s what they were going for, spot on.
2. Cube Queen
This one had potential, but her overall look felt largely forced and uninspired. She looked like every other video game villain from space (or another reality).
1. The Ice King
Probably the best design the villain ever got was The Ice King. He was a rip-off of the Night King from Game of Thrones and Nazghuls of Lord of the Rings, just with a hoody, but it worked. It’s not the most unique thing ever but it succeeds.
