Dawn Bellwether in Zootopia

25 villains disguised as good guys 1

Taking place in the titular city where anthropomorphic mammals coexist, Zootopia tells a story of an unlikely partnership between a rabbit police officer, Judy Hoops, (Ginnifer Goodwin) and a red fox con artist, Nick Wilde, (Jason Bateman) as they uncover a criminal conspiracy involving the disappearance of predators. In a surprising plot twist, the meek and overworked little lamb named Dawn Bellwether (Jenny Slate) serving as the city’s assistant mayor turns out to be the mastermind of the conspiracy.

Before the big reveal, a lot of viewers were actually rooting for Dawn because of the numerous indignities she had suffered from her giant lion boss Mayor Lionheart (J.K. Simmons). So things really got more exciting when Dawn was revealed to be the main antagonist of the animated feature film.
