So, who's the girl from the movies you really don't wanna mess with? 💁

WatchMojo's Top 10 "Mean Girls in Movies" ranked Regina George at #1 and Kathryn Merteuil at #2—meaning they can go head-to-head in this match up!

#ReginaMeanestGirl

Regina is the antagonist from a little film, perhaps you've heard of it, called "Mean Girls." So by the movie's title and her role in it, you know she is a force to be reckoned with, right? RIGHT!

Regina is the ultimate manipulator—tearing down others' self-esteem; pitting her "friends" against each other; backstabbing anyone who's a threat. Sounds like the quintessential mean girl. She brings out her ultimate mean-girl antics when a fellow Plastic (who ranks underneath her) falls for her ex-boyfriend. Here are some of her best movie moments. 

#KathrynMeanestGirl

Oh please! Kathryn makes Regina look like a girl scout. Although a teenager, she isn't simply a manipulative high school mean girl. She's seductive, sadistic and like the movie's title suggests—she has cruel intentions. 

Kathryn bets her step-brother (whom she shares sexual tension with) to seduce their prep school headmaster's virginal daughter for the fun of it. She likes sadistic games, and sadistic games she plays! Here's one of her evilest movie moments.

Buzzfeed has created many listicles about the evil brilliance of Regina. Heck, they believe we all have a little bit of a Regina in us. Rachel McAdams definitely made the role relatable to almost everyone's high school experiences—making Regina the ultimate mean girl. We've all been obsessed with her since 2004.

#KathrynMeanestGirl

Regina might be the cinema's ultimate traditional high school mean girl. But Bustle put together a list as to why Kathryn was the BEST villainess of the entire '90s. Heck, she might one of the cinema's greatest villains ever!

Sarah Michelle Gellar created so many memorable moments playing Kathryn in this film, and every single one of them made you want to root for this sophisticated, confident femme fatale.
