Top 50 Best Anime Villains Of All Time

 Kay SebastianKay-Posted Dec 28, 2021


Anime Villains

 

Villains! Also known as Antagonists and Baddies are some of the most crucial elements in making any anime an experience of its own.

 

After all, all the great stories usually have a protagonist, a lead female, and an amazing villain.

 

However, I feel that these days, we are not giving enough attention to villains from the industry.

 

So to tackle this issue and bring more light to our dark warriors, I have created the Top 50 Best Anime Villains list.

 

This list is filled with people who enhanced our experience for a specific anime and taught us what Evil actually means.

 

So grab your favorite weapon, lay down on your couch and let's dive deep into the realm of villainy.

 

I hope you enjoy it!

 

 

50. Majin Buu

 

Majin Buu

 

Time to start our tracks with one of the OG villains, ladies, and gentlemen. Starting our list, we have the legendary, Majin Buu.

 

Majin Buu is one of the main villains in the dragon ball franchise and oh boy, wasn't he a threat.

 

He appeared during the supposed final arc of the Dragon Ball series and his appearance was incredible.

 

Not only was he funny but also terrifying. In fact, back in the day, Majin Buy was looked upon as the strongest villain ever in the series.

 

And when he transformed into Kid Buu? Man, that's was a whole another story. My man was just too strong.

 

But he was kind as well so he stood out better.

 

 

49. Greed

 

Greed

 

Some villains in the medium are not humble. They are nasty, they are gruesome, rough on all those around them and yet, they feel so realistic and relatable.

 

Greed was one of them. He was one of the lead villains in the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood series.

 

And his character was nothing less than amazing if you ask me. He is ruthless with his opponents and during the entire show, he was a part of another character.

 

And although that character was quite humble, Greed showed us a side of humans that exists but they don't wish to accept it.

 

And that is why Greed was loved so much by the fandom. He was stunning with his Calibre.

 

 

48. Ladd Russo

 

Ladd Russo

 

He is a bit of a niche character in the medium. However, those who have watched this anime look at him with fear in their eyes.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to tell you about Ladd Russo from Baccano. Baccano is one of the best anime you can watch today.

 

And one of the reasons for its greatness is the fact that Ladd is in there.

 

He is a fearsome gory villain who will do anything and everything to achieve what he wishes to.

 

He abuses power and is arrogant but that is exactly why people love him. It's his ruthless attitude that gives him a true "Villain" vibe.

 

 

47. Tomura Shigaraki

 

Tomura Shigaraki

 

Shigaraki is one of the new additions in the best anime villains catalog. However, what makes him so much more attractive is his ideologies.

 

A lot of people believe that Villains shouldn't have any "purpose" to be crude. Instead, they should be villains because that gives them happiness or satisfaction.

 

And Tomura Shigaraki is just that. He wants to destroy, anything and everything just so he gets mental peace.

 

And when you look into it, you will realize how sinister his persona is. And if you still don't believe him, just wait for the next season of My Hero Academia.

 

You will know exactly what I am talking about.

 

 

46. Joker

 

Joker

 

Oh no, ladies and gentlemen! This isn't the Joker you are looking for. However, he is definitely the Joker you would start looking for.

 

Joker is one of the villains in the Fire Force anime series. And I would go out of my way and say it, he is horrible.

 

Joker is just as disturbing as you might expect from him. Rude, cruel, and will do anything to achieve what he wants.

 

However, his mystical design and his fire prowess clearly give him an advantage over those who are against him.

 

That is why Joker stands here on this list. Make sure that you are not the one messing with him.

 

 

45. Kenny Ackerman

 

Kenny Ackerman

 

Kenny Ackerman was one of the most important people in the Attack On Titan series.

 

In the grand scheme of things, he wasn't exactly a villainous villain. Instead, he was a man with patience and dedication who wanted to achieve something great.

 

However, he wasn't able to because our main cast was against it. I won't spoil you with details but I will say this, we don't usually see Levi Ackerman escaping from a trap.

 

But if Kenny has set it, Levi has to run as well. Which is a rare sight in the series and also an achievement if you ask me.

 

 

44. Overhaul

 

Overhaul

 

While we are yet to explore the depths of Shigaraki's character, the one whom we have explored is Overhaul.

 

For those of you who don't know, Overhaul was one of the lead villains in the world of My Hero Academia.

 

In fact, he was the main villain in the 4th season so you know he was dangerous.

 

His ideologies were as selfish as you might expect and so were his powers. He used to have the quirk to deconstruct and reconstruct any form of matter.

 

And watching that inaction was fascinating, to say the least. Overhaul was definitely a threat our team had to go through.

 

 

43. Askeladd

 

Askeladd

 

Ladies And Gentlemen, Dad is here. And I think both you and I must stand up and pay respects to him.

 

Because he deserves it all. Askeladd is one of the main villains in Vinland Saga.

 

And I won't lie, he was amazing. I can't remember the last time I looked at a villain and said, "Man, I want him to be real." That's how well-written Askeladd was.

 

He wasn't a villain, he was a hero who chose crude yet realistic ways to achieve what's best for the world.

 

Had it been anyone else, he would have succumbed to greed. But Askeladd was different.

 

Askeladd is different. And Askeladd will always be different.

 

 

42. Vicious

 

Vicious

 

A villain from the classics, how cool is that? Vicious is one of the lead characters in the world of Cowboy Bebop.

 

He was, at one point, an accomplice of my man Spike. However, soon enough, he chose the path he shouldn't have, and therefore, he achieved a state he mustn't have.

 

He became heartless, doing things that his original self would never have the courage and power to do.

 

However, that's where reality hits. When accidents happen, people change. They change drastically, just like Vicious.

 

And that's why he is loved so much. Vicious will always be special.

 

 

41. Makoto Hanamiya

 

Makoto Hanamiya

 

Death, murder, killing? Nah mate, I am fine with a dunk! That is one way to describe the next boy on our list, Makoto Hanamiya.

 

Makoto isn't a villain you might be expecting him to be. He is from the Kuroko No Basket anime and that's why he is standing here on this list.

 

My man has a tall body with a dominant and smug nature which allows him to portray a horrifying ad villainous vibe.

 

Plus, with his rough and improper attitude, things start to take some interesting turns within the show.

 

He is quite a unique villain for this list. But that's what makes it stand out so much as well.

 

 

40. Donquixote Doflamingo

 

Donquixote Doflamingo

 

One Piece is an anime filled with adventure and action. However, all of the fun that we used to have from the series just vanished and transformed into a terrorizing mess when Donquixote Doflamingo appeared.

 

Donquixote is one of the strongest and most dominant villains in the realm of One Piece and just as you would expect, he was a monster.

 

His strength was so intense that fans actually thought it was going to be the end of the One Piece series.

 

He was rough and hungry and that just adds more layers to his character. And this, in turn, made him such a great villain.

 

 

39. Ryuk

 

Ryuk

 

Many of you might not even look at Ryuk as a villain in the anime medium.

 

However, if we witness what he has done, we might change our outlook. Ryuk was one of the characters in the realm of Death Note and he was the primary reason for everything that happened within the show.

 

Firstly, he was the one who introduced the Death Note to our planet just for the sake of seeing something interesting.

 

Think about it, he was the reason why many people died unnecessary deaths and that's why I look at him as a villain.

 

And although we might not see him that way, he is quite a villainous being.

 

 

38. Kaiki Deishuu

 

Kaiki Deishuu

 

The Monogatari series has quite an interesting cast going along for them. And amongst that cast stands Kaiki, one of the coolest villains you can find.

 

He made his first appearance in the Nisemonogatari installment and from that point on, there was no going back.

 

Firstly, he was a well-designed character with great attire and a villainous personality. Secondly, his acts were as questionable as they get and so, people started to look at him with an eye of intrigue and respect.

 

He was a character with a lot of traits put into him and that is why people love to analyze the hell out of him.

 

 

37. Tsukasa Shishio

 

Tsukasa Shishio

 

Resurrecting from the world of Dr. Stone, we have Tsukasa Shishio. He was the main villain in the realm of Dr. Stone and his presence was as dominant as it gets. Firstly, he was super strong.

 

In fact, he was said to be the strongest warrior in his world. Therefore, in the world of Dr. Stone, his powers were as unreal as it gets. Secondly, he held an ideology and that ideology was the sole reason why Tsukasa becomes a villain in the first place.

 

He wants to achieve something and that something is so important that he will go against anyone and everyone to achieve it.

 

And that's why Tsukasa was a danger.

 

 

36. Garou

 

Garou

 

The next person on our list is hilarious, to say the least. Not because he is strong but because he is so much fun to watch.

 

Garou is one of the main villains in the One Punch Man series and more specifically in the second season of One Punch Man.

 

However, what makes him so great is his fun nature yet strong ideology. Garou is brutal with his opponents and can break them without being in pain at all.

 

But despite all of that, he isn't a bad person. He just wishes to be the strongest and change this flawed society of heroes.

 

And a lot of fans support him in his quest.

 

 

35. Zeke Yeager

 

Zeke Yeager

 

This man right here is a monster. He is the reason for countless deaths and murders and none of us can help but hate him so much.

 

Zeke is one of the main villains in the world of Attack On Titan. However, what makes him so impressive is the fact that he created a lot of chaos in the realm of the series.

 

I won't spoil you with the details but I will say this, if this man appeared, prepare yourself for some serious change in the narrative.

 

Because things will mold and soon enough, the show will become something completely different than what it was.

 

 

34. Suzuki Toichiro

 

Suzuki Toichiro

 

Well, would you look at that! Our boy Toichiro is on this list. How cool is that?

 

However, despite looking like a gentleman, remember that he is a monster. Suzuki Toichiro is one of the lead characters in the world of Mob Psycho 100 and his first appearance happens in the second season of the series.

 

However, right off the bat, we get an idea of how strong this guy is.

 

I mean, he claimed to be the strongest person in the world when it comes to Psychic abilities.

 

And he portrayed his difference in skill soon enough. However, we soon get to see a completely new beast on screen when he goes against Mob.

 

And that is when we start to respect him so much more.

 

 

33. Envy

 

Envy

 

The Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood series is filled with a bunch of different characters that are more than capable of being amazing villains.

 

And one such villain is Envy. Envy is one of the seven deadly Sins in the show.

 

However, what makes him so much more remarkable is his contribution to the overall series.

 

He was there till the very end and taught us a lot about true human nature in the process.

 

He was nasty with his approach and played dirty all the time. However, still, people were captivated by him mainly because of how realistic his claims were.

 

And that is why he started looking up to him.

 

 

32. All For One

 

All For One

 

The one who is the reason for all the chaos in the realm of My Hero Academia.

 

The next man on our list is the menace himself, All For One! All For One is the main villain in the world of My Hero Academia.

 

And the best part was that he had the most overpowered quirk we can imagine.

 

He had the quirk to take other people's quirk. And that is why he used to be so threatening.

 

I mean think about it, he can take your power away from you if you start to overpower him.

 

And that is why All For One was the biggest threat in this world. He was just too dangerous for humanity.

 

 

31. Takasugi Shinsuke

 

Takasugi Shinsuke

 

A lot of times, we hate the villains in a show. However, I don't think I have seen hate upon Takasugi Shinsuke.

 

And I think that's because of his grounded and realistic character. Takasugi is one of the main villains in the series we call Gintama.

 

And Gintama in general is a very fun show to watch and appreciate. However, what makes Takasugi so amazing is his outlook on his situation.

 

He has a lot of capabilities and he uses them for the better. And although you might look at him as a villain, many people look at him with respect and appreciation.

 

 

30. Muzan Kibutsuji

 

Muzan Kibutsuji

 

Now before I start to talk about Muzan, can we just appreciate the fact that Muzan Kibutsuji is such a cool name.

 

I mean, Michael Jackson would have worked fine but I think this one is better.

 

Anyway, coming back to our topic, Muzan is the main villain of the Demon Slayer franchise.

 

However, what makes him so amazing is the fact that his danger level is over 9000.

 

Muzan is looked upon as the strongest demon and they say that even the Hashiras don't get the chance to even look at him, let alone go against him.

 

So the fact that the strongest beings in a group can't even witness him in their lives proves that he is an amazing villain.

 

 

29. MewTwo

 

MewTwo

 

Well, I know many of you might not look at him like that but I do believe that MewTwo was an actual villain.

 

In fact, if you have watched his movie, you know that he was the strongest Pokemon created from his era.

 

And that is why he was looked upon as a villain. In the movie, MewTwo tries to recreate a more idealistic society where humans don't have control over their Pokemon.

 

However, he soon realizes the reality of his thought process and starts working upon it.

 

Later, we see him- Oh wait, that's going into the spoiler territory, sorry! But yeah, from the standards of Pokemon, MewTwo is a great villain.

 

 

28. Black Goku

 

Black Goku

 

You know he is a threat when he is literally the main character of a show.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to tell you about Goku Black. He was one of the main antagonists in the world of Dragon Ball Super.

 

And his first appearance was as lethal as it gets. He isn't a copy of Goku.

 

Rather a transformation into Goku for the search of Power and an idealist world. And that is why Black Goku is so powerful.

 

He will do anything and everything to achieve what he wishes. And even Vegito wasn't able to get a hold of him with his partner properly.

 

That's why he is so high on this list.

 

 

27. Cell

 

Cell

 

Well, well! Would you look at that? Another Dragon Ball villain. But I can't complain.

 

Since that series has given us some of the most memorable antagonists of all time.

 

And Cell happens to be one of them. Cell was one of the lead antagonists in the Dragon Ball Z segment and I don't think anyone can forget his presence.

 

I mean he was the one who organized the first Tournament Of Power where even Saiyans aren't good enough.

 

And that's where we realized that he is the real deal. He is amazing in terms of power.

 

And his ideas were just as ruthless as you might expect.

 

 

26. Momonga

 

Momonga

 

The main character is the antagonist. How cool is that? But anyway, let's get back on track.

 

Momonga is the main character of the Overlord series. And he is also the villain of that series which is surprisingly unique from an Isekai anime's standpoint.

 

I think that's why he stands out so much. His appearance clearly tells us that he is a beast.

 

And I believe this notion is what made Overlord stand out as a whole in this world filled with Isekai anime.

 

Therefore, I believe that Momonga needs a lot more recognition and appreciation amongst anime fans.

 

And that's why he is here on this spot.

 

 

25. Accelerator

 

Accelerator

 

The Toaru fandom can't emphasize enough how amazing Accelerator is. And I don't blame any of my fellow fans.

 

Because he is quite a mess for sure. Accelerator is one of the lead villains in the Toaru series.

 

And just based on skills, this man is a monster. He is looked upon as one of the strongest warriors in the show and his capabilities are second to none.

 

His strength is insane and that's why our main cast has a hard time dealing with him.

 

This, in turn, makes him a much more of a remarkable character. And that's why he is standing there on our list.

 

 

24. Father

 

Father

 

When you talk about pure Evil villains in anime, I think Father should be in your conversations.

 

Why? Because he was ruthless, he was nasty, he was gory. And that's why he is here.

 

Father is the main antagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood series. And we don't really see villains like him these days.

 

I mean, just the metaphor that he gave to Ed, comparing him to ant was so badass.

 

I can't think of any villain yet that can do the same thing and also mean it.

 

And that's why Father is here on our list. Make sure to pay your respects.

 

 

23. Kirei Kotomine

 

Kirei Kotomine

 

For someone who isn't into the Fate series, Kirei may only be a handsome boy.

 

However, if you are into the Fate franchise then you know how much of a threat this man is.

 

Kirei is one of the lead characters in the world of Fate and more specifically, he was the antagonist of the Fate/Zero installment.

 

He was the master of Assassin in the Fourth Holy Grail War. And just that one feat allowed him to be stronger than anyone around him.

 

His skills are just as amazing as you can expect. And that's why, when he was on screen, viewers were under stress.

 

 

22. Shou Tucker

 

Shou Tucker

 

I know some of you might dismiss me for this. However, I believe that Shou Tucker is an amazing character.

 

No! No, You don't! Don't you dare click away just yet? Listen to me first and then decide.

 

So what do I mean by "amazing character"? Well, I mean that Shou is a very well-presented villain.

 

Just answer me this, when was the last time you absolutely hated a villain. So much so that you wanted to kill him by teleporting inside the screen?

 

Have a hard time remembering? Well, guess what? Shou Tucker gives you this feeling instantly.

 

And that's why this man is so high on this list.

 

 

21. Itachi Uchiha

 

Itachi Uchiha

 

Another incredible character who is a villain for many eyes, and a hero for more.

 

Itachi was one of the lead villains in the Naruto franchise. And if you haven't watched the series, I would highly recommend you to check it out.

 

It is one of the finest anime. And Itachi within that series is one of the finest villains.

 

He did something that no one would have the courage to do. And that's why he surfaced as a legend as he is.

 

He won a war that never happened and that's why he was a hero looked upon as a villain.

 

Therefore Itachi is standing here with pride and confidence.

 

 

20. Ryo Asuka/Satan

 

Ryo Asuka/Satan

 

Ryo Asuna aka Satan is one of the lead villains in the Devilman Crybaby anime series.

 

Now Devilman Crybaby is an interesting anime with a ton of twists and turns. And Satan just adds so much fun into our watching experience by extremely altering those twists and turns.

 

He plays dirty and stands as a strong being in his universe. Plus, his appearance is also very very unsettling if you think about it.

 

Like his eyes are blue and his entire body seems to be white. What! Man, that's some disturbing appearance right there.

 

 

19. Isabella

 

Isabella

 

Isabella! Man, would I say it, she is quite a mess. I mean, we don't usually imagine a woman as a cunning and gritty person standing as the villain of the series, right?

 

However, for this woman, the rules shall be changed for once. Isabella is one of the lead characters in the world of The Promised Neverland.

 

And I won't lie, she was horrifying back when she was first introduced. And that's why she is standing here on this list.

 

I don't see villains like her anymore. Villains who play with their victims and give them all the chance they can just to shatter their plans at once.

 

And that's why she is so nasty.

 

 

18. Tetsuo Shima

 

Tetsuo Shima

 

Akira is one of the classic anime movies of all time. A franchise that is still looked upon as one of the best cinematic experiences someone can have watching anime.

 

And I believe that apart from the amazing protagonist, a lot of credit for the success of the series must go to the antagonist himself.

 

Tetsuo Shima is an amazing villain who used to be the main character's friend. And soon he became a monster that no one in this world could have controlled.

 

His insanity was unreal and so were his skills. Therefore, he became the beast that he is today.

 

 

17. Char Aznable

 

Char Aznable

 

The next man on our list is from a classic series. And I am pretty sure you would have watched it.

 

Char Aznable is one of the main villains of the Gundam Franchise. And he was known as 'The Red Comet' back in his golden days.

 

His villainous standards stood for the Universal Century era. And just in that period, he managed to make significant changes in his system and society.

 

Therefore Char was looked upon as one of the most impressive villains of his era.

 

And I think you and I can agree as to why that perspective was held towards this young man.

 

 

16. Chuuya Nakahara

 

Chuuya Nakahara

 

Bungo Stray Dogs has some of the most handsome men of its time, change my mind.

 

And one such handsome hunk has made his way to the list, weebs. And this one is an antagonist for once.

 

So all the female fans who are looking for a "Bad Boy", here you go.

 

Chuuya is one of the lead villains in the Bungo Stray Dogs series and I do admit that he is quite a hassle.

 

Within the show, his personality and attitude make him stand out so much. Plus, his actions are as questionable as it gets, and therefore, he is standing there on our list with a smug face.

 

 

15. Gilgamesh

 

Gilgamesh

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the next person on our list is a handsome hunk. And I am not saying it out of the blue.

 

Oh no! This man right here is a beast. Not only in terms of looks but also strength.

 

Gilgamesh is one of the lead characters in the anime we call Fate. And his powers are unreal.

 

Firstly, he is one of the finest fighters in the show. This says a lot especially in an anime that is all about fighting other people.

 

Secondly, his status is also crucial in making him an amazing villain. And that's why he is here.

 

Gilgamesh is a fantastic character who shouldn't be ignored at all.

 

 

14. Sebastian Michaelis

 

Sebastian Michaelis

 

You may look at him with the eyes of a villain. However, what is important is that he isn't as simple as you might expect him to be.

 

Sebastian Michaelis is one of the main characters of Black Butler and wouldn't you know it, he is a fine gentleman.

 

He is not only very strong but also well-mannered and stands as one of the best characters you will find in the entire series.

 

He isn't a direct villain who is against the protagonist. He works alongside our protagonist and helps him out.

 

How? Well, to know-how, you would need to watch the anime yourself.

 

 

13. Izaya Orihara

 

Izaya Orihara

 

Izaya is one of the main villains in the Durarara anime series. And I don't think we have got any other villain who looks as smug as he does.

 

Izaya is brilliant, not only in terms of his capabilities but also because of his looks.

 

He is a handsome hunk who gives off the villain vibes so well that we can't help but look at him from those eyes.

 

And he makes sure that we appreciate his villainous intentions by making some of the most insane decisions in the series.

 

However, even after his presence as a villain, fans can't help but love the hell out of him.

 

And that's why he is here.

 

 

12. Shougo Makishima

 

Shougo Makishima

 

Another white-haired boy has made his way to our list, ladies and gentlemen. Shougo is one of the main villains of the anime we call Psycho-Pass.

 

And man, I won't lie, he is quite a mess. He was not only lethal but also clever with his approach.

 

And as a villain, he gave some of the most captivating and eye-opening challenges to the protagonist.

 

And these challenges weren't just physical. They were mentally and morally painful as well that allowed us, viewers, to have an amazing overall viewing experience.

 

That is why Makishima is here on this list.

 

 

11. Sousuke Aizen

 

Sousuke Aizen

 

Looked upon by many as the most handsome villain of popular anime, we have Sousuke Aizen.

 

I know I am putting a bit of an emphasis on his looks but I can't help it, man.

 

He looks such a badass. Moreover, his intelligence and skills are way far ahead of that of anyone else in the Bleach Franchise.

 

Therefore, watching him commit his acts makes it so much more interesting and captivating for all of us.

 

Plus, if you look at his methodology, you will realize his true villainous nature. And that's why Aizen is one of the most sought-after villains of all time.

 

Without a doubt, one of the bests.

 

 

10. Dio Brando

 

Dio Brando

 

DIO!!!! We are in the Top 10 ladies And Gentlemen. This new segment is going to have some of these finest villains in the medium.

 

And I think you can fact-check the previous statement by having a look at our current entry, Dio.

 

Dio is one of the most popular villains in JoJo's Bizarre Adventures series. And his excellence stands in the fact that his evil nature is brutal.

 

He will commit any crime without thinking twice and that's why people love his villainous personality.

 

No mercy, no consideration. Just pure action! Therefore, Dio is starting our Top 10 segment.

 

But let's just say that things are going to get better from here on.

 

 

9. Pain

 

Pain

 

Back when he first appeared, none of us had an idea that Pain would be as remarkable as he was.

 

However, I think that's why they say, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Pain is one of the lead antagonists in the realm of Naruto.

 

However, what makes him so amazing is his entry into the series. His invasion arc is still looked upon by many as the best arc in the entire Naruto franchise.

 

And Naruto vs Pain is still one of the most hyped fights from the series.

 

And I think that's why Pain is such a model villain for anime creators.

 

 

8. Hisoka

 

Hisoka

 

He is a pedophile, no questions about it. However, he is also a handsome villain that can beat the hell out of you instantly.

 

And that's why my man is standing here on this list. Hisoka is one of the main villains in the Hunter x Hunter series.

 

And his threat level was portrayed immediately within the anime. He was able to fight a lot of his competition simultaneously.

 

And that's why people understood his value as a villain. Over time, he creates a lot of beef between him and the boys.

 

However, as the series progresses, his character becomes more and more refined. And that's why Hisoka is a great antagonist.

 

 

7. Kira Yoshikage

 

Kira Yoshikage

 

Probably the best villain of JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, we have Kira Yoshikage. Kira is looked upon as the smartest villain in the series and still serves as one of the best you will ever experience.

 

His prowess and accuracy are what make him so special and that's why Kira is such a monster.

 

You might look at him as a weakling. However, it is only a matter of minutes before he will fight and defeat you while you are thinking of strategies to dodge his first attack.

 

A genius wouldn't be an incorrect way to describe him. And dangerous is another word we can use to talk about Kira.

 

 

6. Griffith

 

Griffith

 

The next man on our list is written with complexity and depth. And that's why fans love to watch him on-screen.

 

Griffith is the main antagonist of the Berserk series and he is just amazing. Every aspect of being a villain has been pushed to insane degrees for Griffith.

 

And that's why you and I would love to watch him battle. Moreover, his morals have been pushed to the limits and his skills are second to none.

 

A great warrior who looked up with respect and appreciation. However, this same great warrior is going to go against another man who is more correct than him.

 

How will this face-off turn out? Maybe make Griffith the best possible villain of all time?

 

I guess we'll never know!

 

 

5. Meruem

 

Meruem

 

I don't think ANYONE can disagree with me when I say that Meruem is the best villain of the Hunter x Hunter series.

 

I mean come on. His genius was portrayed so beautifully in the anime and his excellence was nothing to be worried about.

 

He was smart, cunning, strong, and dangerous. And with all these things going on for him, his antagonist role was refined to the fullest degree.

 

It was so fun to watch him plan out the best for his opponents. And I think that's one of the biggest reasons why people love Hunter x Hunter as much as they do.

 

Believe it or not but Meruem has an incredible magnitude of contribution to the success of Hunter x Hunter.

 

 

4. Madara Uchiha

 

Madara Uchiha

 

Madara is an absolute badass. I mean when was the last time a villain went against the entire world and none of them were even able to put a scratch on him?

 

Yup, he was insane. Back when he was first shown on screen, the fandom had gone crazy over him and his capabilities.

 

His skills were unreal and calling him a God felt like an understatement. And that's why I think Madara is so high on this list.

 

The sheer amusement that this warrior had given to the viewers was more than enough to make them remember him as one of the best.

 

In fact, within the anime community, he is looked upon as the best personification of an overpowered character.

 

And that's why he is here.

 

 

3. Freeza

 

Freeza

 

We are in the Top 3, ladies and gentlemen! This is it! The final stretch!

 

And I think there's no better way to start this stretch with anyone other than the monster himself, Freeza.

 

Freeza is one of the main villains from the Dragon Ball series and I must admit, he is a classic villain.

 

He was part of the longest fight in anime history. He was the reason why people fell in love with Dragon Ball Z.

 

He is still part of the show since he always tries to return and take revenge.

 

And finally, he was the reason why our planet was saved in the story. Freeza is that one villain who stands as an idol for the others.

 

And that's why he has taken the third spot on our list.

 

 

2. Light Yagami

 

Light Yagami

 

For runner-up, we have the man himself, Light Yagami. Light is the main character of the Death Note series and yet, he is also the villain of the show.

 

However, this can be controversial depending upon whom you ask. Light was hoping to make the world a better place which doesn't seem like the act of a villain.

 

He killed many Innocents to achieve what he wanted to in his life. And that's why people look up to him so much.

 

He made us question what makes a protagonist, a protagonist. And what makes an antagonist, an antagonist.

 

And that's why my friend, Light is standing at the second spot.

 

 

1. Johan Liebert

 

Johan Liebert

 

And for the number 1 spot, we have the monster from Monster, Johan Liebert. Johan is the main antagonist of the Monster anime series and oh my, isn't he incredible.

 

He is a genius psychopath whose actions may seem insane at first. However, the way he executes them makes them so much more interesting and captivating.

 

Monster is a series that plays with your feelings and morals. And Johan makes sure to make that play as fun as possible.

 

And that is why you and I love him so much. I don't wish to spoil you with any details.

 

However, I will say this, Johan will change your outlook on villains forever. And that's why Johan Liebert is standing at the first spot on our list.

 

So there you have it, weebs. These were the Top 50 Best Anime Villains. I hope your evil got a bit calm after reading about and you found at least one villain you didn't know about.

 

Thanks a lot for reading and until next time, Sayonara!
