Paok,

For your consideration:
The One-Armed Man (Bill Raisch) from The Fugitive (1963–1967)

Bill Raisch in The Fugitive 1963

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056757/plotsummary
... The one armed man does not appear in many episodes, but is an evil presence throughout the series. When he does appear, he is ruthless, violent, and simple-minded, with good instincts for self-preservation. Like Kimble, he is a fugitive, having to run from the relentless pursuit of Kimble. Toward the end of the series he appears more often, and Kimble learns his name, ...
By the way, the late Andreas Katsulas played the One-Armed Man (Sykes) in the film version, The Fugitive (1993). Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Andreas came from a working-class Greek-American family.

No TV Sci Fi/Fantasy villains list is complete without a David Anders character.

FYC Julian Sark in Alias or Adam Monroe in Heroes or John Gilbert in The Vampire Diaries or Blaine DeBeers in iZombie.

Cole was too nice to be a long time baddy!
What about "Control"  in P.O.I.?
My pick from yours is Lex Luthor!
Whiterose is a very close second
Is Giancarlo Esposito from Breaking Bad anywhere to be found?
He's my favorite Baddy!

I liked Cole too. I guess it's up to Paok.

Control wasn't as big a baddy as Greer.

Breaking Bad is not a Sci Fi or Fantasy show.

And nether is the one-armed man. The fugitive was based on the alibi that Sam Sheppard gave in his case where his wife was murdered. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_S...
You need another “Replacement baddie”.

Paok,

I looked at the list... if it's not too much to ask, could you reinstate John Greer from Person of Interest and remove one of my other gratuitously large number of suggestions?

P.O.I. is one of my favourite shows as well as a favourite among many Poll Board regiulars.

I so miss Morena Baccarin when she used to play heroes like Inara Serra, the companion, in “Firefly” and “Serenity”. Yup, that is her!

Lots of great ones, but since I have a very predictable "Twin Peaks" (1990) kick thanks to 30th anniversary you probably know my pick. 

I just rewatched the international version of the pilot, which pretty much contains a blueprint for the character and Frank Silva was really amazing for a non-professional actor, no wonder his fewer scenes won him the role for remainder of the series which was pretty much tailor-made. He was amazing throught the whole series... And seemingly a really nice guy in real life.

Nighthawk and Paok,

As a fellow avid Whovian, Doctor Who villains really deserve a separate poll. I had one go live a few years ago. Unfortunately, that poll was based on a character list. It disappeared when IMDb deprecated character lists and polls.

Nighthawk, please feel free to create a new Doctor Who Villain and Doctor Who Companion poll. These archives of those two polls may be helpful:

Favorite Doctor Who Enemy
https://web.archive.org/web/20171113093812/http://www.imdb.com/poll/7LXbJdQ9nw8/results

Favorite Doctor Who Companion

Yes, Davros (the creator of the Daleks) is a formidable villain.

The Master is also one of The Doctor's most formidable villains. He was particularly a major factor in the 12th season of the rebooted series.
