4. Jacques Schnee

Jacques Schnee, the embodiment of a frosty reception, a man who wraps himself in the finest of suits not just to show off his wealth, but as armor against any shred of empathy or warmth.

As the head of the Schnee Dust Company, Jacques isn't just chilling because of the snow-themed company he runs; he's absolutely cold-hearted, treating his own family members as pawns in a grand chess game of power and profit. His manipulation and emotional abuse of Weiss, Winter, and Whitley aren't just frowned upon - they're the stuff of villainy that makes your skin crawl. He's a man who sees love and affection as weaknesses, exploiting his children's desires for approval and connection to tighten his grip on both his business empire and his familial throne. In Jacques's world, affection is a currency he refuses to trade in, making him a character we love to hate.

But Jacques's infamy doesn't stop at the doors of the Schnee household - it seeps into every corner of Remnant like a bad stench. His corporate greed and exploitation of the Faunus for labor paint him as a villain not just to his family, but to society at large. He's a man who sits atop his ivory tower, looking down upon those who struggle, seeing them not as people, but as stepping stones to greater wealth and power. His actions and demeanor represent the worst of corporate greed and societal indifference, making him a character whose every appearance on screen prompts a chorus of boos and hisses from the audience.

Jacques Schnee isn't just disliked - he's the personification of what happens when power goes unchecked and empathy is seen as a weakness, making his role in RWBY as essential as it is condemned.
