I'll give Luca Blight the 3rd vote. He's like a Game of Thrones villain. Or medieval Hitler. 

Reapers from Mass Effect series were great. 

Kefka for his laugh. 

The Black Samurai from Ninja Gaiden. Because he was incredibly hard to beat, in a game full of hard to beat bosses. 

Salazar from RE4. "Welcome, Mr. Kennedy!"

The Unkillable Necromorph from Dead Space's chapter 5.

Luca Blight is always my go-to answer for this question.  I think part of that is that he went out like a bloody star.  I'll never forget his last stand:

"It took hundreds to kill me but I killed humans by the thousands!!!! Look at me!!!! I am sublime!!!! I am the true face of evil!!!!"

That quote and that battle have always been one of my most memorable villain showdowns. It took a bunch of different teams, and arrows, and in spite of that he was still standing.

Yeah, I got to that scene yesterday, and the game suddenly went from being great to being fantastic for me. I loved how Joey and Silverberg set Luca up to die. It honestly felt like when Joffrey from GoT was assassinated for being too much of a dick. I can't wait to see what the writers do with Joey in the second half of the game. And I wanna know if his new wife finds out that he helped Luca kill the king!

Most of the time, the defeat of the villain is all about making the hero look good.  He kicks down the door, yells something about friendship, and then beats the bad guy simply because of destiny or something.  On the other hand, defeating Blight required a master plan from a brilliant strategist, the coordination of an entire army, and then several teams of your strongest characters.  It was epic

The brilliance of Suikoden was that it rarely settled for typical, something which is hard to say about many JRPGs.



The Great Mighty Poo, for both his musical number and the sheer fact that you are literally fighting a giant pile of shit in a Nintendo published game

GLaDOS, her hilarious and sardonic commentary



Dr Neo cortex: crash bandicoot series. He's funny and Clancy Brown's voice was so good for him.
Ganondorf: windwaker. This version just has a bit more backstory and feels more fleshed out.
Hades: kid icarus uprising. They did such a good job hiding him the build up to this game. None of the levels from after you beat medusa were used during the advertising of this game. He is the funniest video game character ever while also being extremely intimidating and evil.

And suikoden does not romanticize war the way like many other JRPG's do,it dares to be more gruelling about it effects.

Sephiroth...Kefka was a wussy clown that the party should have easily killed at the start of the game in the Figaro desert. Sephiroth could kick ass. 

Sephiroth was an oedipus caracter. Just a boy with top many mommy issues.

The reapers from mass effect 1 were the best villains of all time. But they fcked that up in 2 and 3.



Skullkid + Majora's Mask. The back story of both is awesome, and when they get together and throw the Moon into the world... Woah, too much epicness.



Feels pretty good to see so much support for Suikoden 2's very own Luca Blight. To say he's not even close to being the final boss of the game speaks volumes on how much of an impact he makes.

To quote - "It took hundreds to kill me but I killed humans by the thousands!"



Kefka

I have to go with that and add that weird mask salesman.
