    Zavok (ザボック Zabokku) is a recurring antagonist from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is the former leader of a group of demons named "The Deadly Six". The other members of the six weren't that good to begin with. However, Zavok takes the cake for being utterly the worst.

    Why He Shouldn't Be the Leader of the Zeti

    1. He doesn't have any sort of development as a character and feels incredibly one-dimensional to the point.
    2. He feels like a major generic doomsday villain as he only wanted to destroy the world to make him and the other members of the Deadly Six grow more powerful.
    3. As much as the Deadly Six feel like rehashes of the Koopalings, Zavok feels like Morton Koopa Jr., except that Morton has a lot more character.
    4. Idiot move (or lack thereof): At first, he and the rest of the Zeti are pawns to Eggman, being forced to work for him because of the Cacophonic Conch he uses to torture them. Even though they know the conch is the source of all their troubles, not a single one of them thinks about getting rid of it.
    5. Idiot move nº 2 (for real this time): When he and Zomom are getting ready to roboticize Tails, they leave the room after everything is set, leaving the fox boy free to reprogram their computer to leave his brain untouched. And while one could argue they didn't expect Tails to be a tech genius, that is no excuse to leave him completely unguarded.
    6. For some reason, he despises Sonic even though he freed them from Eggman's control.
    7. When Tails is captured in Sonic's place, Zavok just wrongly blames the other Zeti, even though there was no way to know who the capsule would get.
    8. He failed to even protect the rest of the Zeti as he allows each of them to get killed by Sonic.
    9. Due to all of the reasons as mentioned above in "Why He Shouldn't Be the Leader of the Zeti", he can be seen as a pointless, unnecessary, forgettable, bland for a lot of people, and a shallow character at that for some people, and this is saying a lot.
      • In Sonic Forces, he just comes back as a hologram and a pointless boss, which consists in a fight against a giant Buzz Bomber. He could very well be removed from that fight or be replaced with another character and nothing would change.
    10. For some reason, he just somehow randomly comes back to life and appears in Team Sonic Racing working for Eggman even though they very obviously dislike each other.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Admittedly, Travis Willingham (who also used to voice Knuckles) and Patrick Seitz both did decent jobs voicing him.
    2. Some people may find his design cool, despite WHS'tBtLolZ#3.
    3. His boss fights in Sonic Lost World are admittedly good, although the same can't be said for Sonic Forces.
    4. Also, after his final boss fight, he finally gets his well-deserved comeuppance for his actions thus it thankfully prevents him from becoming a karma houdini.
    5. He is shown to respect and care for Master Zik as his mentor and in the later installments, he often speaks highly of him whenever he is brought up, which kind of helps give him some layers in his personality.
    6. His IDW counterpart is portrayed better: while his personality still boils down to "evil monster", he (and the rest of the Deadly Six, for that matter) is much more of a threat than ever.
