Candyman Infobox.jpg

Daniel Robitaille, better known by his nickname the "Candyman", is the titular main antagonist of the 1992 slasher horror film and its sequels, based off of the short story "The Forbidden" from the anthology book Books of Blood written by Clive Barker. Despite his nature as a brutal killer and a vengeful spirit, Candyman has an especially tragic past compared to most horror icons, which arguably made him more sympathetic, though he was nevertheless just as dangerous and deadly as any other slasher movie villains. He returns in the 2021 movie with the same name.

As with Clive Barker's earlier slasher icon, Pinhead, the character of Candyman was intentionally designed to be very charismatic and articulate, his main source of fear being derived from his warped sense of reasoning.

He is portrayed by Tony Todd in the whole series, who also played Captain Darrow in The Rock, Grange in the 1994 film The Crow, Shadow in Shadow: Dead Riot, Dreadwing in Transformers: Prime, the voice of Zoom in The Flash TV series, The Fallen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Luther Thompson in the third season of Scream.

The Villains Wiki is a mirror version to the Heroes Wiki and is dedicated to creating a database of all known villains from all media - ranging from Saturday morning cartoon shows of old to books, video games and comics. Without the villain, there is rarely a plot, and this wiki aims to showcase the characters we all love to hate. All are welcome to join in and contribute here, so long as edits are constructive, discussions are positive, and both are relevant to the subject of villains.

For more information about how you can get started here, please check the "Helping Out" section below, and be sure to mind our "Rules and Policies." Thanks for stopping by!

Before contributing, please read our rules and abide by them.

NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "villain" can be another man's "hero" (no matter how wicked they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.

NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on KnowYourMeme.com or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight.

Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
