5. Not Being Deceptive Enough
I didn't get why Mother Gothel wanted to live forever anyway. She didn't have a real home, friends, family, or even a job. What did she need to live for?
Aside from not having the best motive for her mission, if Mother Gothel never told Rapunzel her birthday, Rapunzel would have never put her birthday and the lanterns together. For her sake, Mother didn't know best.
4. Talking Too Much
Quote that killed him: "Now here's my little secret, I killed Mufasa!"
If Scar would have kept his mouth shut, Simba would have died with his family disappointed at him for killing his father, and Scar would have kept control of the Pride Lands until they ultimately ran out of food and died off. But no. Letting Simba know that Scar was responsible for his Father's death instead of himself, gave him the strength that he needed to jump back up, clear his name, and get rid of Scar. Some things just can't be prepared for. (sigh)
2. Keeping Stupid Company
Be weary of the company you keep. Hades, like all Disney Villains had some psychological issues, but that wasn't his main downfall. The plan was simple,
- Steal Hercules
- Make him Mortal
- Kill him
Pain and Panic were not capable of getting the job done, they failed, thus Hades failed. It was ultimately Hades' fault for keeping such stupid sidekicks. Let that be a lesson, and be willing to go the distance for competent and capable friends.
1. Anger Issues
Maleficent was a bad-A villain! She was G, but her anger issues got in the way.
First Instance: She wasn't invited to Princess Aurora's Birth Celebration (with good reason I might add), and because she wasn't invited, she bestowed a curse upon the Princess.
Her anger issues killed her, and it was all because she wasn't invited to a party. Things could have been different once upon a dream.
