Syndrome (aka Buddy Pine) is the overall main antagonist of Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles franchise, serving as the main antagonist of the 2004 full-length computer animated Disney-Pixar film, The Incredibles and a cameo in it's short film Jack-Jack Attack.
He is the arch-nemesis (and former #1 fan) of Mr. Incredible and is voiced by Jason Lee.
Why He Rocked
- Strangely enough, he didn’t start off as a villain, he actually wanted to become a hero and help Mr. Incredible fight crime.
- He, along with Edna Mode, are two of the most memorable characters in the Incredibles franchise.
- His costume design for both as Incredi-Boy and Syndrome are really cool and fit his personality very well.
- Even though he was evil, he also had a bit of a quirky personality in him saying he’s still “geeking out“ about Mr. Incredible.
- He‘s been through some major character development, as he started off as an optimistic fanboy for Mr. Incredible and later on became a sadistic, heartless super villain who wanted to rid of all the supers.
- He had a very justifiable and very deep reason to be who he currently is, as Mr. Incredible pushed him aside when he tried to help him out, which made him begin to despise the supers for looking down upon the non-supers (normal people) as weak, so he decided that if everyone’s super, no one will be.
- His death was quite brutal and pretty much reminds viewers of Edna’s “No capes!” policy.
- He's also one of the darkest and most evil Pixar villains (along with Lotso, Sir Miles Axlerod and Professor Zundapp).
- Ironically, his goal was to become a hero in the face of society,
- He used to make a whole lot of cool, deadly gadgets that has tortured and killed many other supers in an attempt to strengthen up to fight Mr. Incredible.
- He was a very cunning and sadistic supervillain.
- As Incredi-Boy, his obsession over Mr. Incredible could get the better of him.
