Pinoy teleseryes would not be complete without the wicked kontrabida who brings non-stop misery to the life of our pure-hearted heroine. These devil-like villainesses caused our blood pressures to rise and made us want to enter our TV screens just to help our beloved lead characters. Their effective portrayal did not only scar fictional lives but left a hellish mark on primetime.
Clara Davis in Mara Clara (Gladys Reyes)
If she's not slapping Mara (Judy Ann Santos), she's either pulling her hair or throwing mataray remarks in the classic 1992-1997 serye. You would surely not want to have a sister as mean as her!
Sally Concepcion in Sa Dulo Ng Walang Hanggang (Mylene Dizon)
She intentionally fell off the stairs just so her wicked plans won't be discovered. Wanting revenge for the death of her boyfriend, she makes the life of Angeline (Claudine Baretto) suffer.
Madam Claudia Buenavista in Pangako Sa'yo (Jean Garcia)
Mga hampaslupa, tabi! Dadaan na si Madam Claudia, ang Madam ng Masa. Who could forget about her exchange of scathing insults and serious face-off with archrival Amor Powers? She did everything in her power to destroy the relationship of her son Angelo (Jericho Rosales) and their maid Yna (Kristine Hermosa).
Selina in Mula Sa Puso (Princess Punzalan)
Remember when she burst into a resounding evil laugh when the bus containing her niece Via (Claudine) exploded? She escaped death many times in the show that made people seethe with anger. Selina is probably the Queen of all Evil with her crimes and schemes.
Cynthia Salazar in Esperanza (Carmina Villaroel)
Carmina has played various antagonist roles but this is one of her most memorable kontrabida characters. At first, everyone thought she was a goody two shoes but it turns out she's avenging her father and tries to destroy the whole family of Esperanza (Judy Ann).
Lady Morgana Frost Archangel in Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay (Jean Garcia)
The teleserye had a lot of twists and turns including the arrival of this villain who brought more pain and grief to Red Butterfly (Lorna Tolentino) and her family.
Scarlet dela Rhea-Castillejos in Iisa Pa Lamang (Angelica Panganiban)
Audience had mixed reactions to the character of Scarlet. With her bitchy and witty comebacks to Catherine (Claudine), people could not help but be disgusted and entertained at the same time.
Ingrid Martinez-Garcia in Tayong Dalawa (Agot Isidro)
Agot is best known for this character who's always hysterical and angry. She picked fights against her husband's mistress Marlene to keep her family complete.
Vera Cruz in Magkaribal (Angel Aquino)
Everybody bow down to the Queen! Vera didn't fail to execute her schemes versus her enemy Victoria (Gretchen Baretto) and utter harsh and remarkable lines while staying stylish and elegant in this fashion-serye.
Corazon Roxas-Berenguer in Maging Sino Ka Man (Chin Chin Gutierrez)
Everyone hated her incomparable evil plans, making people around her, including son JB, suffer. Her gleaming eyes, intimidating aura, and classy lines are Corazon's trademark that televiewers missed.
