Belloq had class. Nazi villains are generally just Nazis. They have a job to do and they do it, no qualms. Belloq had another side to his character, an undefined code of honor by which he abided.
But above all, Belloq had a cool suit.

As a closet romantic, I'm inclined to agree.

As a villain goes, Mola Ram ranks pretty high up for being creepy, which was very effective for the style of Temple of Doom. Who else has ripped out hearts?

True, Mola Ram was the only Indy villain who had any supernatural powers, and that does make him a different kind of evil.

Doc, where is good 'ol Lao? He gets by vote. I know, he did not do much, but I bet there is some cool history between him and Indy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Belloq. He is the most equal to Indy. After all, just a little nudge and he and Jones would be alike!

I voted for Belloq, not sure why except for the fact he has the same intelligence as Indy.

Well, yes, the monkey was the one villain that I really wanted to see die a painful death..........

But I'd have to say that my favorite villain was Belloq. Just because he had the coolest accent out of all of them. Who can say no to an evil French accent?

Belloq is probably my favorite but I thought all three films had great villians.

Donovan is my favourite because he is thoroughly sophisticated and learned. He seems like someone you could trust because he emanates a calm demeanour. But this calmness is also what makes him so sinister.

My second favourite is the Nazi monkey because he is the most genuinely and purely evil character in the movies. Even more so than Mola Ram.

Mola Ram shouted stereotypical lines like "Drop them, Dr. Jones! They will be found. YOU WON'T! Hahaha!" ... Donovan did nothing special and was lacking in screen time. Belloq would have gotten my vote easily, but Toht's two memorable lines make it a contest.

"We are ... (giggles) ... We are not thirsty."
"Now ... what shall we ... talk about?"

I just love those two lines

I voted for Toht! He should have had more of the film. Belloq was a close second.

Indy It is to my belief

That Mola Ram is single handedly the best and most evil of all the indy villains in the series,he gave me nightmares when i first watched TOD.He definitley makes Colonel Dr.Irina Spalko look like a wimp, i mean the guy tore a mans heart out and laughed while it was on fire in his hand! And the way he interacts with Indy in the "blood drinking scene" is just classic,Amrish Puri was a great part of the Indy Series.
