Vizzini battle of the wits
The Sicilian criminal mastermind employed by Prince Humperdinck to kidnap Buttercup and kill her, leaving evidence to frame Guilder of the murder so that Humperdinck can declare war. He serves as the film's secondary antagonist. He is the leader of Inigio and Fezzik and he hates it when Fezzik shows off his gift of rhyming:

=====Vizzini: No more rhymes now! I mean it! Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut? Vizzini: DYEAH!!!.=====

He is short of stature and temper, and often shouts "Inconceivable!" when frustrated. He can be bossy and is rather narcissistic, believing himself far more intelligent than everyone he meets.

Vizzini is outsmarted by Westley in a battle of wits 'to the death', when Westley poisons the goblets of wine in front of them. After stalling and trying to decieve Westley by switching goblets when Westley's back is turned, finally takes a drink, to which Westley replies 'I'm dead inside.'. Then after bragging about falling for 'one of the classic blunders', Vizzini topples over dead in mid-laugh. 


  • Inconceivable! (Catchphrase)
  • You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses while your back was turned! Ha ha, you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha... (Vizzini to Westley during the Battle of Witts, shortly after drinking the poison.)
