Don't mess with Van Damme. 

Even though Jean-Claude Van Damme is universally recognized as a dangerous badass, people seem to believe that they can piss him off and get away with it.

In the interest of learning vicariously from the mistakes of others, here are a few of their stories. For your reading pleasure, 8 villains who made the mistake of pissing off Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Chong Li, Bloodsport

I guess it would be difficult to blame Chong Li for thinking he could take on Jean-Claude Van Damme. After all Bloodsport was one on JCVD‘s first starring roles, so his reputation was not as set in stone as it is today. He learned his lesson the hard way, though, being forced into submission after trying to blind Van Damme with an underhanded trick during their climactic kickboxing match. Even cheating won’t save you once you piss off Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Fender Tremolo, Cyborg

Some villains make the mistake of thinking that they can get away with pissing off Jean-Claude Van Damme just because they live in a post-apocalyptic hellscape. WRONG. In Cyborg, Fender Tremolo has a band of pirates to back him up, and he still ends up hanging from a meat hook, courtesy of Jean-Claude Van Damme.
