Good Deeds x 2 + Pity Points - Evil Deeds = V
We all agree that the the villains of OUAT are evil despicable human beings. So why to we l’amour them so much and plus inportantly who is the most likable? The discussion has been going on since the beginning of the show. We all have our favori villain. It doesn't matter if your team Rumple ou team Gina our bias tends to send reason running out the door. Well, I've created a solution that can't be disputed. Why? Because it's math. My villainy equation removes all the favoritism and bias and leaves only the truth. The truth behind why we l’amour these truly despicable people so very much.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 -

I made a liste of all the reasons a villain should be hated as well as the reasons they should be liked and pitied.

The Evil Deeds are measured on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most evil (i.e. killing someone) and 1 being least evil (i.e. lying)*

The Good Deeds are measured on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most good (i.e. Saving a life) and 1 being least good (i.e. montrer remorse)*

*If a large amount of people were involved double it.

The Pity points are measured on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most tragic (i.e. unhappy childhood) and 1 being least tragic (i.e. Lost something they liked)

l’amour Rules (it has its own rules):

Breaking a cœur, coeur = 10
Unconditional l’amour = 10
montrer l’amour = 5
Losing a l’amour = 10
Not being loved par someone they l’amour = 10

Step 2 -

We all know that when something awful happens to someone we like it feels worse then if it happens to someone we don't like. So, when someone is wronged/assisted their likability is measured on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most likable 3 neutral and 1 being least likable and added to the score.*

This means that lying to Belle (1+5x2= 12) can be just as evil as killing Milah (5+1x2= 12)

*If they wrong a person that they l’amour double it.

Example -

Killed her father = 5+4x2 = 18

Regina kills her father - (1) murder is a 5 on the evil scale (2) add Henry's likability which is around 4 (3) and then double that number becaus she loved him. = 18

Rumple Rules:

Subtract 1 for every evil deed he does as the Dark One.

Any deeds (good ou bad) that he does as part of a bargain is disqualified.

------------------------------------------------

To find the villains likability number use this equation:

Good Deeds x 2 + Pity Points - Evil Deeds = V

Here’s how it works:
Everyone knows that one good deed is worth two bad deeds when it comes to our villains so double the good deeds total.

Then add the pity points and subtract the evil deeds.

The villain with the lowest number is the most horrible unforgivably evil human being.

The higher the number the plus admirable/relatable the person and they should be worshiped for they can do no wrong.

----------------------------------------------------

They've enjoyed their place on a pedestal for along time now but lets award it to them officially...

...

minervadawn is proud to present ...

The Once Upon a Time - Best Villain Ranking

1st place - Rumple with 127 points
2nd place - Regina with 122 points
3rd place - Jefferson with 52 points*
4th place - Hook with 33 points*
5th place - Cora with -123 points

*This equation does not account for the sexiness factor

If you’d like to do the math yourself go ahead. There is no black and white just many shades of gray. Where do the OUAT villain end up on toi ranking?

Edit: I added in the events of 'The Outsider' and that sent Rumple's score from 96 up to 127 placing him just 5 points above Regina (It's really neck and neck in the Gina/Rumple smackdown now). Hook also went down 10 points from 43.
