If there's one thing that makes a good villain, it's immortality. Jacqueline Natla claimed to be immortal in Tomb Raider: Anniversary. We're tempted to believe her as she took a very creepy Atlantean, demonic form in the game. Her case for immortality is aided by the fact that she's been around since the 1940s and looks pretty damn good for her age. Apparently, she was originally unleashed from Los Alamos, New Mexico where a test nuclear bomb detonation destroyed what was holding her and set her loose on the world. Fast-forward 60 years and she's still up to no good.

Besides the usual powers that come with being an immortal demon of sorts, Jacqueline has the typical bad guy ability of being able to talk her way out of situations that would otherwise lead to her death. She's escaped captivity plenty of times, including once surviving a strike from Thor's hammer. If there's one quality that we'd like to bestow upon Jacqueline, it's that she is one of the most resilient baddies we have on our list.

Way to go Natla, she's definitely one of my favorite villians ever. So I thought it was pretty cool she was mentioned.:D

86... is that all? :p I would've thought she would place better than that. Ah well, better than not at all I suppose. ;)

Resilient is a very lovely way of saying "JUST WON'T ****ING DIE" which in turn is a lovely way of saying "overused". But I still love Natla so this is great. :cln:

I would have placed her higher, but glad she made the list! :D I love Natla, but may she finally rest in peace! :hug:

I know 86 isn't that high, but I am surprised she made it at all. I know I love her, but I didn't think anyone else did.:p

Natla sohuld be higher, but I would never had thought to see her on a top 100 list, so I'm pleased.

Why is Sub-Zero on that list? Sub-Zero is a good guy. They're thinking of Noob Saibot. And Shang should not be lower than Noob Saibot.

Yay, I always thought she was badass. Incredibly annoying, but badass.

TRA Natla was the best, and she has Grey DeLisle voice

Move along now.

I liked Core and Crystal's Natlas, expect the way she looked in Anni! :p

beofe i look, im going to guess that Bowser is #1.

EDIT. its not that far yet.

Natla is awesome. I'm glad she made the list. :D What I don't understand is people's "overused" comments. She's come across Lara twice. :p

Exactly, she was far from overused.:p

generally speaking, any Core fan and CD hater will think that if CD uses something from Core's timeline; then it is over used. i liked Natla in TRU.

i liked her even more when she was all gross looking from the Eitr; i didnt like that she lived, but her scenes in LS were enjoyable.

AmericanAssassin
05-05-10, 17:41
People were asking for continuity, though. Especially Core fans. Bringing a character back helps with that a bit. I think people just like to *****. :/

Exactly what I thought. Sub-Zero is not a villain, his brother's soul is now an evil entity.

This list has already lost all credibility.

Mario on 100 :vlol:

Go Natla !! But you can do better I think

05-05-10, 18:24
Yay, Sander Cohen is on the list! :cln:

Although as far as proper villains go my favourite is Fontaine. I mean, that part in Bioshock were he makes the transition from Atlas to Fontaine is so full of win. :cool:

Natla is one of my all-time favourite villains/villainesses. :D the fact that she's pretty much what I think of when I picture my ideal woman (tall, blonde, curvy, strong body and mind) just makes it even better. Woohoo!

I liked the original Natla. I liked the fact that she looked like a businesswoman but was completely evil/not really human. I also liked her voice a lot too. Crystal's Anniversary Natla was just too obvious, and I thought her character design looked awful. The Underworld one looked better, but I still didn't like her voice.

The only Natla i liked was the one from TR1 not TRA/TRU. Especially TRU Natla she was terrible.

Good addition to the list. Should've ranked higher... :pi:

unrelated, but I accidently read a huge spoiler for Bioshock D:

Oh look, Mario. It's funny how one character can be in the gaming hero and villain list at the same time. :p

I wonder who #1 will be. Maybe Eggman (:D). Sephiroth is often mentioned in lists like this as well. Don't forget Mario's (yes, again) biggest enemy Bowser.
It would be funny to see Mario on #100 and Bowser on #1.

Whatever. Go Natla!! :D

I'm glad Natla even made the list (even though I think she deserves to be much higher :pi:). Go Nattie! :D
