Primary antagonists

Story Villian Endgame Outcome Eventual fate
Stormbreaker Herod Sayle Exact revenge on the British Prime Minister (who bullied him in school) and the entire country with an "April Fool's Joke": when the Prime Minister activates the 'Stormbreaker' computers, a potent strain of smallpox will be released into every school in the country, killing all the children in school Alex Rider shoots and destroys the Stormbreaker Shot and wounded by Alex Rider; then killed by Yassen Gregorovitch
Point Blanc Hugo Grief First cloned 16 copies of himself in South Africa in the 1980's, then employs Baxter to surgically alter his 14-year-old clones to resemble them. The clones and real boys will eventually be swapped. When the parents die and pass on their inheritance, he will take the assets from the clones and become the most powerful man in the world, allowing him to reinstate apartheid globally.   MI6 captures all the clones and incarcerates them Incinerated by a snowmobile that Alex Rider sets on a collision course with his helicopter
Skeleton Key Alexei Sarov Attempts to drop a nuclear bomb in a shipyard of nuclear submarines, thus causing a massive explosion. Russia will be blamed and they will turn to their president. Sarov will then release edited footage from an interview exposing Kiriyenko as a lazy drunk idiot who says he can't deal with the issue; this will force him out of power and he will eventually be found dead due to heart failure. Sarov will reinstate communism in Russia, and will be taking over. Alex Rider removes the detonation keycard from the nuke and tosses it into the ocean Shoots himself
Eagle Strike Damian Cray Hijack Air Force One and use its missile room to fire nuclear missiles at major drug-running countries to eradicate the drug trade  Sabina Pleasure causes the missiles to self-destruct before they hit their targets Thrown off Air Force One; sucked into engine number 2
SCORPIA Julia Charlotte Glenys Rothman Break the US-UK link by intentionally demanding that America pay SCORPIA a ridiculous amount; if they do not, a hot air balloon covered in satellite dishes would take to the air above London and activate Invisible Sword, killing thousands of children who have been injected with poisonous nanoshells. The satellite dishes would transmit tetrahertz beams that would cause the nanoshells to break out of their casing and release the poison into every childs' body, causing instant death. Alex Rider hijacks the balloon, sabotages the machinery and causes it to crash Crushed by the falling satellite
Ark Angel Nikolei Vladimir Drevin Use Gabriel 7 to deliver a bomb onto Ark Angel; when the device explodes, it will cause the space station to fall onto the Pentagon, destroying the evidence which the authorities accumulated against him while simultaenously allowing him to claim insurance for the destruction of Ark Angel (which costs him a sizable sum)  Alex Rider boards the space hotel and shifts the bomb to its center, causing it to blow up before it hits the Pentagon Crashes his seaplane into trees while flying away
Snakehead Winston Yu Use 'Royal Blue' to create an artificial tsunami that will kill the celebrities attending an Australian conference; the resulting shockwave will hit the coast of Australia  Alex Rider takes control of 'Royal Blue' and prematurely detonates it Smashed apart by the bomb's shockwave
Crocodile Tears Desmond McCain Have Greenfields to engineer a poison called ricin for crops that would kill half the population of Africa, then make hundreds of millions of pounds during the first few months of the plague and intends to steal the money before running away and assuming a new identity in South America Alex Rider plants a bomb on a dam, causing a torrent of water to flood the poisoned crops Set on fire when Alex Rider causes a leaking fuel tank to detonate after he combusts it with an exploding pen 
SCORPIA Rising Abdul Aziz al Rahim Use Alex to blackmail the British government into returning the Elgin Marbles to Greece. As part of Operation Horseman, Razim would proceed to gather evidence to prove that Alex had been working for MI6 for the past year. He accurately speculates that the British government would immediately release the marbles back to Greece, as Razim would otherwise publicly reveal the contents of the Horseman file, ruining Great Britain's reputation around the world for generations to come.  Alex Rider, disguised as Julius Grief, lures a group of Special Forces to his base, leading to a protracted shootout where his guards are killed  Sucked into a pit of salt
