Top Ten Ways Negan Should Die

Negan - The Walking Dead

Negan has certainly made a major splash into the world of The Walking Dead since appearing in the season six finale. Arguably he could be labeled the cruelest villain the show has ever seen. Yes, there were awful events perpetrated by others before Rick met Negan, but the height of despair has really been ratcheted up now that the Saviors are around.

And, of course it is now December, and everyone seems to be making lists. With that in mind, and fondly recalling The Late Show when David Letterman was host, where he would always have his Top Ten List, I decided to see if I could come up the ten most appropriate ways for Negan to kick off. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but Negan. not so much. Let’s see what you think of my list!

10. Impaled on a Pool Cue Stick
 

Negan - The Walking Dead

Negan really loves to play pool! He also seems to be quite good at it. So, it seems to me that this would be a really good way to take him out if you can find a moment when he lets his guard down – perhaps when he stops to give a lengthy oration!

9. Beware the Ides of March
 

Dwight - The Walking Dead

In a move reminiscent of Brutus murdering Julius Caesar, I would love to see Dwight take Negan out! That would be such poetic revenge for not only the suffering Dwight has had to endure, but also would help me feel better about what Dwight had to do to Daryl!

8. Shoving a Whistle Down His Throat
 

Daryl - The Walking Dead

Negan just loves to whistle. So do his followers. So, I say why not facilitate that little activity that seems to make him so happy? Let’s get one of those nice whistles, like maybe one from a train, or a steam pipe, or whatever, and shove it down his throat – to make it easier for him to produce that melodious sound!

7. Chopping Off His Hands
 

Rick and Negan - The Walking Dead

A threat made than more than once against Carl, Negan seems to enjoy cutting off pieces of bodies as a form of discipline to keep everyone in line. So, would it not be only fair if he were to suffer the same fate? However, no doctor will be available to stop him from bleeding out.

6. Having His Eyes Scratched Out by His Harem of Wives
 

Negan's Wives - The Walking Dead

Negan has several wives, and takes great joy it seems in humiliating their ex-husbands. While he puts up a pretense of his wives having free will and not being forced to stay with him, nothing could be further from the truth. And, seriously, why does any man need more than one wife? Negan is so arrogant and drunk with power, that he would never see it coming as his wives pin him down and scratch his eyes out before knifing the dude!

5. Tiger Food
 

King Ezekiel and Shiva - The Walking Dead

Wouldn’t it be sweet to watch Shiva devour Negan? I mean, come on, if the people from the Kingdom can feed walkers to the pigs, then why not feed Negan to Shiva? She needs her red meat after all to be sure she gets her proper nutrients!

4. Singing “You Are My Sunshine” While Carl Uses Him for Target Practice
 

TWD 7.7 - The Walking Dead

Negan and Carl have an interesting relationship of which we have only just seen the beginnings. But, forcing Carl to sing the song his mother sang to him steps over the line in my opinion. And, Carl can use the target practice anyway since his stereo vision is now gone.

3. Iron, Meet Face
 

Mark - The Walking Dead

Since this is such a favorite method of punishment, I think Negan should be able to fully understand what his followers experience. After all, they say the hallmark of a good leader is to not ask your followers to do anything you are not willing to do yourself!

2. On Top of a Pile of Burning Mattresses
 

Michonne - The Walking Dead

Since Negan saw fit to burn the mattresses they took from Alexandria without even using them, which is a very spiteful move in my opinion, then I think it only right that he should be tied to the top of a pile of mattresses and then Michonne sets the pile on fire.

And the number one way that Negan should die:

1. Maggie. In the Woods. With Lucille.
 

Lucille - The Walking Dead

What is more appropriate than Maggie being handed Lucille as Negan kneels before her? What sweet justice that would be! What catharsis for Maggie, who has lost all her family over the years. I know I would cheer!

So, there you have my Top Ten List – Do you have another way for Negan to be killed that should be on the list? I would love to hear your ideas. Please let me know in the comments section below!

  • I’d love it if he could get a combination of all 10!!!
