I liked how they turned Robotnik into a jolly, mostly incompetent fat man into THE DARK LORD HIMSELF in the transition from Japan to the US.
As for my favorite villian... I couldn't be 100% sure if he's my FAVORITE... but I'd nominate Weaselby from Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure.
So you've got this snooty rich guy who's basically the steampunk bastard child of Robotnik and Wily who fights you in a flying top hat, before you eventually fight him hand to hand. And then you make your way through his mansion, expecting to get into one final confrontation with him, but
there was no Weaselby. It was your jealous child sidekick the entire time, who uses the money you spend on upgrades from him to buy a giant robot to kill you with. It's like Luke from Professor Layton completely lost his shit.
I'd also put Dr. Neo Cortex from the Crash Bandicoot games up there. Sure, he's not really what you'd call an effective villian, but him being voiced by Clancy Brown, AKA Lex Luthor, gives him a very "don't fuck with me" quality.
