101 Niwe - Utawarerumono
102 Arlong - One Piece Arlong - One Piece Saw-Tooth Arlong is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew, the Arlong Pirates and a former member of the Sun Pirates. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other more.

He makes a pretty good villain. He and Caesar Clown are my favorite villains in one piece. How can anyone not like Arlong? And being part fish, he's very strong and has a great advantage underwater.

Captain "Sawtooth" Arlong was the captain of the fishman pirates. He was a rat and a cheat but still an excellent villain. Luffy was the only one strong enough to defeat him. He deserves a spot in the top ten. I also like how his jaws grow back every time the'ye shattered or removed, each time more stronger. He's a badass!

103 Sern - Steins;Gate
104 Tsunenaga Tamaki - Deadman Wonderland Tsunenaga Tamaki - Deadman Wonderland
105 Raoh - Fist of the North Star

This man is true power, no cheap tricks or additional support from anything or anyone. He goes as far as giving his opponents an advantage by allowing them to come at him anyway they while he stays on his horse. Talk about a boss, there's none greater!.

The man to conquer the world, known as the Ruler of the End century. He is referred as strongest by the entire character roster in the anime and also called the "Ken-oh: Fist King". He thought Kenshiro to fight. He doesn't even need to dismount off his horse to fight anyone.

Without a doubt one of the most badass and manly villains to grace the anime world

The Most manly and Rerspected and charismatic anime villains greatest villain ever

111 Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy (born as kaede), is a tragic, fictional Japanese Anti-Heroine, and Anti-Villianess, who is the main protagonist of her debut source, a manga officially known as Elfen Lied [alfen leed], written and illustrated by Lynn Okamoto, which was best known for it's T.V. adaptation of the same name, Directed more.

Lucy may be slightly sympathetic, the fact is that she is a complete and utter psychopath who butchers people without pity or remorse. She is so bad that she brutally murdered the little sister and father of the only person that had shown her kindness, that is evil

Although her other side (Nyu) may be innocent, but Lucy herself is so evil to the point where she hardly cares whether people suffers and kills people without any kind of remorse at all.

Lucy isn't evil shes just insaine

112 Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes is a childhood friend of Erza Scarlet. When he lost his own memory, he was a Dark Mage who desperately sought to revive Zeref via the R-System. Jellal served as the main antagonist of the Tower of Heaven arc and is currently a member and co-founder of Crime Sorcière.

He's not a villain he's a hero who was manipulated. He's actually one of the kindest, most generous and has the strongest sense of justice among Fairy Tail characters. - Goku02

He was amazing during the Tower of Heaven. But still, I like him even after he turned good.

Ambitious, sly, cunning, manipulative and damn hot!

Well, in the beggining he certainly had some ill intentions towards pretty much everything BUT it wasn't his fault. Really, his is closer to an anti-heroe than an antagonist... Jellal x Erza forever...

113 Squealer - Shinsekai Yori

Squealer was not a super-powered villain, but he used his incredible intellect and skills as a tactician to create an ingenious plan that almost destroyed the humans. Unlike many villains, he had a sympathetic motivation. Whether or not you agree with his methods, there is no denying that Squealer is one of the greatest villains - not just in anime - of all time.

Best Villain ever

114 Midnight - Fairy Tail V 1 Comment
115 Suitengu - Speed Grapher

He is just incredibly deep. Everything he does is for a purpose and reason, and it's not power, it's a message. You don't get a villain like him very often.

Just watch speed Grapher can't tell you how powerful he is. In both strength and financial dominance.

116 Vector - Yugioh Zexal II

I just love how he is double-headed. But it's kinda sad that you don't ever see is TRUE personality. - vector3996

He's a crazy backstabbing cruel bastard

He is just an awesome villain, he can be the worst, cutest, and the funniest at the same time.

He is awesome

117 Griffith (Berserk) Griffith (Berserk)

Gotta be one of the highest on the list for the worst wrongs done to the protagonist, how is he so low? This guy is pretty much one of the nastiest pieces of work out of all of them. Won't list what he did for spoilers, but for those in the know, all I have to say is that even villains have standards low as they are, and this guy crossed the line on a beyond ridiculous scale. I seriously don't think there is any other villain on this list who committed a more heinously evil offense than Griffoth did against their respective story protagonists (not counting all the other guys, they got off nice and light compared to Guts and Casca. It's pretty bad when death by mutilation, ripped apart and eaten by demons can be considered getting off lightly, but I think anyone who has seen the series would agree).

Griffith has to be one of the most sinister anime/manga villains of all time. What he did is something that people can never ever recover from. I feel the only reason Griffith is so low on this list is because Berserk is, despite its notoriety, a fairly unpopular series. If more people read it, I'm sure they'd see the horrors of what Griffith has done and he'd skyrocket. (I wish he'd actually be strapped to a rocket and shot off)

What a deep sense of despair and agony this series has because of Griffith. How- after all those years of fighting side by side and trusting each other faithfully- can you betray your brothers and comrades like that? Even after they risked their lives to save the lowlife, Griffith still betrays them like that? They should have left him in that torture cell to rot where he belongs.
He is and will always be my number 1 lowlife in any anime series.

One of the most original and best Villain in history of Manga...SERIOUSLY!
