The Once-Ler is the main protagonist and narrator of Dr. Seuss’ 1971 book The Lorax, and its TV adaptation and the deuteragonist as well as the central antagonist of the 2012 film adaptation of the same name.
A logging mogul who praises frivolity over ecology, the Once-ler is one of the most famous villains of children's literature. The much-panned CGI adaptation of the character is a brief player in the Non Disney Villains Tournament.
Non Disney Villains Tournament
A corporate manager working under President Stone, the Once-ler notices that some animatronics in his factory are not working properly. He stays late for work one night, only to notice that the animatronics are moving throughout his factory. He pans through the security footage, only for one of the animatronics, Foxy, to appear and scare him. Frightened, the Once-ler is too late to stop Freddy Fazbear and Golden Freddy from breaking into his office and killing him.
