9. Y&R’s Victor Newman

The Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Victor Newman is a dynamic character. He’s absolutely one of the top villains on the show; however, he is multi-dimensional. He’s done some terrible things to enemies and his family over the years, but he’s also got a big heart as well. While Y&R fans can hate him at times, there is also a level of respect for Victor. After all, he’s built an empire over the years after coming from nothing, and his soft spot for his grandchildren (as well as wife Nikki) is always an endearing thing to watch.

8. DOOL’s Victor Kiriakis

Speaking of Victor, DOOL’s Victor Kiriakis is much like Newman — he’s rich, powerful, self-made, and loves his family too. However, much like the Y&R’s Victor, he’s controlling, manipulative, a shrewd businessman, and has plotted over-the-top schemes against enemies that might not have been needed. Victor Kiriakis is a villain with a heart of gold, and a man that has changed a smudge over the years thanks to his family and his wife, Maggie Horton.
