If you were a video game villain, what would you do differently?

Think of a villain from a video game and think of what they could do differently to prevent the hero from succeeding. I'll start...

If I were Bowser, I would lock all the castle doors so Mario couldn't just walk in.
If I were King K. Rool, I would have kept all of DK's bananas instead of scattering them all over the jungle so he couldn't pick them up for extra lives.

I are king dick badman III with henchmen aplenty. I send a higher level one to wipe out this annoying party rather than one they stand a chance against.

I'd kill them as a child and not let become an adult and get stronger

I'd erase him from the timeline.
Good luck returning, mate.
If you go back in time to erase him, how do you make sure present you still has the memory of your enemy existing? If he doesn't exist in the first place then you don't have an enemy in the present, therefore you never go back in time to erase him. You'd essentially create a paradox.

Write a note in the past saying "oh yeah by the way in a few years you NEED to do this or else." Paradox averted

Most of all, I would hire goons that don't point out their weaknesses in an almost exhibitionist way (I wonder...if the bosses in video games fell down the stairs earlier in their life, would they have their vulnerable parts glowing red or green until they got up as well?).

Secondly (and as mentioned lots of times already): no faffing about. Gloating about the mastermind plan is something for after the conquering or destruction, not something I would do against someone who already killed dozens of my loyal underlings.

Lastly...as Bowser, I would really let Peach write that letter to Mario and be honest with the guy. Something like "hi Mario, Look...it's time we told you the truth: I'm having an affair with Bowser. It's not that I don't love you anymore - I absolutely do - but there are times I'm just more attracted to chains and spikes. I'm weird that way. At first I thought it was romantic how you fought your way through countless enemies and hazards to rescue me, but as sweet as you meant it, you really shouldn't. I will get back to you on my own. I don't want you to get hurt in your rescue attempts. Bowser loves me as much as I love him and you, but he's kind of irritated how you kill so many of his minions and humiliate him each time. As such, I'm begging you please, PLEASE don't come to rescue me this time. I'll be fine. And I will get back to you soon, honey. I love you.
Peach
PS: please don't tell the others. I'm afraid they'll react shortsighted when it comes to loving multiple men."

I could go on, but I once stumbled oupon a fun list by someone who already thought about this.

But then as a villian you would be out of a job.
Erm...villains are usually busy plotting and taking over territory. I would think that's a day job even without some protagonist messing about things. :P

If I was Bowser, I'd stop having fights on conviniently collapsable bridges positioned above lava and fire the castle architect.

If I were Ganondorf, I would hold on to the spiritual stones after stealing them instead of hiding them in easily passed puzzle dungeons.
Ganondorf never stole the spirtual stones. What are you talking about?
