I mean, I guess there are, but this surely ranks up there as one of the worst: Impaling someone is one thing, but trying to keep them alive on the stake for nearly two days is just unimaginably brutal. And that's not all he did either. He also burned, boiled, scalped, disemboweled, skinned, blinded, strangled, buried alive, etc. a large population of people (he's estimated to have killed close to 100,000 people during his entire reign.) Vlad The Impaler makes Genghis Khan look like a saint lol.
