    Most Monstrous Trait: Family Betrayal

    You can choose your relatives, you are stuck with them even when they are completely and totally evil. Scar of The Lion King has no love for his kin and the blood lines that they share mean nothing to him. Oh, and the hyenas he hangs out with, they're pretty monstrous too.

    Most Monstrous Trait: Favoritism

    Lady Tremaine is the poster lady for the evil stepmothers everywhere, putting the needs of her own daughters far above those of the stepdaughter entrusted in her care. But one thing that always crosses my mind, why did Cinderella's father marry this monstrous lady in the first place?
