Disney Versus Non-Disney Villains Wiki
Disney Villain Sykes.jpg

Bill Sykes–a loan shark and gangster–is a minor player in both the Disney vs. Non-Disney Villains War and the Disney Villains War, usually dying early on. As a villain, he is based on the murderous Bill Sykes of Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist, though his character is a massive deviation from the source material.

He is the main villain of the animated Disney film Oliver and Company.

Disney Villains Vs Non-Disney Villains War


The American Dream. At its best, this ideal makes it possible for anyone, no matter their station in life, to find wealth and success. A nice idea, but, like any dream, there is always the possibility of it being twisted into a nightmare.

The son of poor Irish immigrants, William Sykes grew up on the mean streets of New York. In school, Sykes' poverty and poor performance made him the target of bullies. That all changed one day when, ambushed by his tormentors after school, he snapped and tore out the leader's throat with his teeth, throwing the body in the Hudson. Sykes was expelled for this, but no charges were ever pressed. Despite the entire student body having watched the fight, they all came down with a sudden case of amnesia when questioned.

A petty criminal for the rest of his childhood, during which time he founded the gang known as the Green Street Boys (which would later evolve into what is now the Gangreen Gang), Sykes' strength and aggression landed him a job as a bouncer at the Red Lobster Inn in his adolescence. It was here that he entered the world of organized crime when a hit-man tried to assassinate visiting mobster "Big" Ben Badun. Noticing the assassin's suspicious behavior, Sykes shot the man before he could stab Badun to death. In gratitude, Badun accepted Sykes into his organization.

Sykes was Badun's most loyal and trusted man, serving as a street soldier in fights with rival gangsters like Cat R. Waul and Salvatore Medusa. Eventually, Badun grew tired of mob life and decided to retire. Sykes was naturally Badun's first choice as his successor. As presents, Badun gave Sykes two Doberman puppies named Roscoe and Desoto, his prized limousine, and the command of his nephews Jasper and Horace Badun. Sykes had finally achieved the wealth and success denied him by the "American Dream" he had first heard of in his childhood.

Operating out of the guise of a simple loan shark, Sykes quickly became known in the criminal underworld for his brutality, using Roscoe and Desoto to tear his enemies limb from limb. Some of his most famous victims were Jay and Janice de Ville, the parents of Cruella De Ville. However, the tides of fortune in the world of organized crime are notoriously fickle, and Sykes would soon meet his match in the person of up-and-coming criminal Carface.

Pre-War: A Lost Artifact

Before the events of the first war, at the turn of the century, Sykes hires two criminal thugs, named Bartholomew Lipsky and Miss Go, as he sends them on a mission to collect a machine, inappropriate for his evil plans. Unfortunately, for Sykes, the two criminals fail to capture the machine from its current owner, Mayor Valmont. Not planning anything else, Sykes spends the rest events of the prequel war into hiding.

Role in the War

Sykes appears as a crime boss operating in New York City. He calls a meeting between him and the pit bull crime lord, Carface. Years ago, Carface borrowed from Sykes and failed to pay back, so Sykes threatens him with his dogs, Roscoe and Desoto unless he gets the money. However, when Sykes sets out in his limo at full speed to run down the dog, Carface puts his back up plan into action by pushing another car into the road. Sykes hits it headfirst and gets consumed in an explosion, ending his life. His dogs, however, survive and swear revenge.
