Best Anime Villains


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Zarbon - Dragon Ball Z Zarbon - Dragon Ball Z Zarbon is Frieza's right hand man and highest ranking Commander and General in an army of millions. He is always beside his master and emperor, Lord Frieza, following his orders and carrying out his dirty work alongside his comrade, Dodoria. Zarbon is responsible for advising Frieza on numerous matters, more.

Zarbon is the absolute best supporting villain in the series. He is responsible for telling Frieza to eliminate the Saiyan race, goes about pounding Vegeta's daylights in the most brutal fight scene in the entire series, and has likely the most exciting death scene in the entire series as well. He also is a lover of beauty and holds a dormant power, the ability to transform into a reptilian beast. He is the deadly dynamic of the combination of the beauty and the beast and the most mysterious yet demonic, ruthless, and brutal villain in the series. The only other comparable villain in terms of story, mannerism, and actual evil acts is Frieza himself. - PrinceZarbon

Zarbon makes for a wonderful villain because he is very intelligent, composed and a marvelously skilled warrior. But these are just probably a few reasons as to why he is Frieza's most trusted and highest-ranking general and right hand man. The icing on the cake would have to be his ability to transform into a monster, making his power level soar even higher! - PrinceZarbon

Zarbon has an excellent persona and villainous attitude. He's also got a great design and morally complex character overall when it comes to both his elegant form and his monstrous deadly form. Aside from the fact that he serves Frieza with utmost loyalty, he's also one of the most brutal tacticians and military commanders in the entire universe. - PrinceZarbon

Zarbon is the best supporting villain as well as having the most exciting fight scene in the series. He's also a very deep character and does a lot for the actual plot. I love that he suggested and set up the Saiyan planet to get wiped out by his Master Frieza and continued to serve loyally until the brutal end. - PrinceZarbon

42 Crocodile - One Piece

Crocodile has the honour of being the first to completely own Luffy. Twice. Yet he lost their third battle due the technicality of sand's agglutination in presence of most liquids. He isn't even the best villain to have a sand theme in anime (I would have to go with Naruto's very emo Gaara for that). But the air of his sheer balefully powerful presence as well as his very devious, calculating mind is enough to cement him as one of the most iconic antagonists in the One Piece universe. Being able to engineer a civil war while working in the shadows and posing as benevolent vigilante and angling to replace a monarch by his lackey in order to gain access to the holiest of holies, a weapon of mass destruction require some severely heavy brass balls to even attempt. Despite his failure at almost all of his endeavors until participating in a mass breakout from a nigh impregnable fortress, he is one of the most memorable villains in One Piece. Looking forward to his post-timeskip antics.

By far the best villain-at least in one piece. Ever since he first appears, he shows some amazing bad ass moves, being the first enemy to deliver a complete and utter defeat to luffy. Then, when he appears in Impel Down, he shows impressive determination to take whitebeard's head. In the war at marineford, he stops the first attempt at ace's execution and attacks akainu just at the right moment. He is by far the best villain in my opinion!

Oh come on! Crocodile is the KING of badasses.

I love crocodile he's totally badass but one piece had a lot of stronger villains like lucci and enel they aren't even on the list? 😠

43 Sailor Galaxia - Sailor Moon

She destroyed all galaxy killed all people in the world with 1 move but Sailor Moon, she has no emotions. Chaos so Sailor Galaxia is the best anime villain. What has she to do to be the number one? Destroy the whole space, hell and heaven? Laugh out loud. She is as strong as Galactus who is know as the best villain of all times of, Marvel. So in anime worls, Galaxia should be the umber 1!

She should be higher - ParkerFang

44 Kagami Mikage - Ceres, Celestial Legend
45 Darcia - Wolf's Rain
46 Dodoria - Dragon Ball Z Dodoria - Dragon Ball Z Dodoria is one of Frieza's top two right hand men and in an army of millions. He is always beside his master and emperor, Frieza, following his orders and carrying out his dirty work alongside his comrade, Zarbon. Dodoria is responsible for advising Frieza on numerous matters and remains loyal to Frieza more.

Dodoria is the vicious powerhouse of Frieza's evil trio; Zarbon the calm and collected adviser, Frieza the sinister tyrant, and Dodoria the massive and savage brute. - PrinceZarbon

47 Kishin Asura - Soul Eater

The best villain in any anime I've ever seen. He has in my opinion one of the greatest philosophy's of all time and is truly a genius oh yeah and he eats people and was sealed in a bag of his own skin. He's smart and completely apathetic to human lives.

NUMBER 40! Bruh, this thing is the definition of EVIL AND MADNESS. And also creepy, but that's not the point!

48 Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Become a villain for some reason died as a hero

He was a hero who chose to be a villain

He should not included here!.

49 Giovanni - Pokemon

He truly is the most epic boss in the history of bosses. He wants to capture Pokemon so that he could rule the world. Plus, he might possibly be immortal.

Damn, this far down on the list! He runs a mafia for Arceus's sake!

50 The Homunculi - Fullmetal Alchemist
51 Dr. Tomoe - Sailor Moon
52 Vegeta - Dragon Ball Z Vegeta - Dragon Ball Z Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vegeta was the first one to crack goku's bone. He completely annihilate goku when he transform in to the great ape form. He never quit even when krillin throws the spirit bomb at him.

I thought vegeta would be first how 36? - zaz

Vegeta is good now, but he was a bad guy when he first appears.

Come on! He's not a villain.

53 Evil Lord Dartz - Yugioh

This guy should be #1 on this list what SERIOUSLY

54 Maximillion Pegasus - Yu-Gi-Oh! Maximillion Pegasus - Yu-Gi-Oh!

The most epic villain of all time. I was really young when I saw Yugioh.He appeared so majestic and all powerful. His grandiosity was off the charts

55 Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
56 Nene - Blue Dragon
57 Father Anderson-Hellsing
58 Lieselotte Werckmeister - 11eyes

The only villain I know that kills off not one, but multiple main characters. Or at least whose actions led to the death of more than half of the main characters. Also the villain that came closest to succeeding in her evil plan. A lot of people could argue that she doesn't seem that self centered enough. This does make sense because her evil plan was the dying wish of her husband. But in my opinion, the best villains are the ones whose emotions overtake them. Later in the show, her husband spoke to her in some kind of spirit form, telling her to keep the world alive or "terminate the mission". After that, she goes berserk andout of control... - MottScurry

59 Wrath - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Such an awesome villains, he should have been the main antagonist.

Wait a second... people put Envy over Wrath.

Okay.. This guy is one of the most badass, untouchable villains I've ever seen in an anime. In fact one of the top searches for him on youtube is Wrath vs Everyone. Everyone. A tank ran away from him. Seriously.

60 Uta - Tokyo Ghoul Uta - Tokyo Ghoul

I love Uta a great deal, but it disappoints me that later on he is revealed to be a villain and a member of the Clowns. He's such an awesome character and he seemed so nice. Why did they have to ruin him for the fans by making such an awesome character the bad guy? I hate that!

This is not right Uta is not a villain I mean he never did anything wrong he is a very kind character in Tokyo ghoul despite he is a little creepy but he should not be in the list

Uta is the one causing all the drama in the series for is own entertainment.

Uta seems like one of the good guys when he first appears (and even I thought so at first), but he seems to appear more sinister as the series progresses. Although he seems friendly and has a nice way of talking, he displays a more hedonistic side throughout the series. These are some things about Uta that make him more of a villain:
1.) Revels in chaos in desructon.
2.) Helps Touka, Renji, Nishiki, and Tsukiyama rescue Kaneki after he's kidnapped by Aogiri Tree, but betrays Kaneki, even finding Kaneki's demise as "fun".
3.) During the Anteiku Raid, Uta is seen celebrating with the other Clowns after the Anteiku Café is destroyed.
4.) After the three year timeskip, Uta is seen at the Auction, selling people to many rich and powerful ghouls.
However, despite Uta's hedonistic side, he does show genuine concern for others, and although it's implicated that he enjoys Kaneki's suffering (look up Kaneki on the Tokyo Ghoul Wiki and read about his relationship with Uta) he ...more
