According to ancient folklore and Star Wars, the best way for a villain to die is for them to fall off a cliff. They could’ve just as easily been shot, decapitated, eaten, drawn and quartered, or any of a number of other deaths, but the fall is reserved for the worst of the worst, since their death represents their descent into Hell. Right? This is most apparent in Disney animated films.
Before we get to the list, which is in no particular order since they are all equally awesome, here is a montage of many of those deaths to a wonderful song.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The evil Queen falls off a cliff while fighting with the dwarfs.
“Now you shall deal with me, oh Prince! And all the powers of Hell!” Prince Phillip stabs the dragon, causing her to fall to her death from a cliff.
