Coolest Anime Villains

This list is the list of all those villains that prove that if you're evil you don't have to moan about it but instead kill everyone in sight and look cool in doing so.

The Top Ten

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

The hero who chose to be a villain.
A genius once in a millennium.
The genius hidden in the darkness.
The most awesome, badass, genius, cool and did I mention genius?! Character in the history of anime ever.

My favourite character in Naruto

It's funny how itachi is the coolest anime villain and sasuke is the stupidest anime villain

He is not a villain remove him from the list
( do not get me wrong itachi is a great character)

2 Perfect Cell - Dragonball Z

He was created to always have a need for power no matter how strong he got. Nobody can kill him without destroying every cell in his body. At that time vegeta could destroy the planet without breaking a sweat but cell was even stronger than that.

You're kidding right?
His design was the best of all the Dragon Ball enemies. Toriyama said that the would have become the strongest of DBZ (with the exception of Vegito) if he regenerated his body more times.
He wasn't not only powerful, he was evil, killing thousands or maybe millions of people for his own.
Almost destroyed the earth, almost the Solar System, but the best he did, was kill Goku.

4 Light - Death Note

Light is probably the coolest and the smartest villain of all anime

He is very intelligent and handsome cool guy there's nothing to say something else with it.

The villain you are guaranteed to like. No contest.

5 Hollow Ichigo - Bleach Hollow Ichigo - Bleach

He is hell of a villain. Whenever he pops out he is the strongest among everyone with a unique style.

Hey, FYI... Sasuke, Nagato, Light, Itachi, and Hollow Ichigo aren't techinally villains... So... Yeah. Just saying. If you really want a cool VILLAIN, then Aizen is the way to go.

6 Johan Liebert - Monster Johan Liebert - Monster

THIS GUY IS AWESOME. Whenever he kills, he remains calm and does not blink an eye. Overall he's very intelligent, manipulative, calculating, pure evil, insane, calm, cold, and in my opinion hot. He's one of the
Coolest villains EVER!

Even Itachi and the other two.

7 Gilgamesh - Fate/Stay Night Gilgamesh - Fate/Stay Night Gilgamesh is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Tokiomi Tohsaka and a secondary antagonist during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero. He reprises his role as a secondary antagonist during the Fifth more.

One of the most complex and underestimated villan in anime of all time. He is the one who blends the personalities of the trickster, the chessmaster, the manipulative bastard, the edonist, the sadist, the Übermensch (more in zero), the sinner with all the 7 deadly sins together inside one person.

8 Frieza - Dragonball Z Frieza - Dragonball Z Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is more. V 1 Comment
9 Kirei Kotomine - Fate/Stay Night Kirei Kotomine - Fate/Stay Night Kirei Kotomine is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the main antagonist of Fate/Zero and the general main antagonist of Fate/stay night. In Fate/stay night, he plays an important role in the unfolding events in all three routes, more.

Most badass master in the series and he never gives up on his goal and lets nothing stand in his way.

10 Yami Bakura - Yu-Gi-Oh! Yami Bakura - Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yami Bakura is a cool-acting, cool-looking villain (hero to me). He's classy and wily and most appealing.

The Contenders

11 Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter

Hisoka is a creep, getting orgasms over little kids, getting into terrifying situations just to fight strong guys and has absolutely no fear for anyone!

He's such an awesome and cool villi an he's unbearable and also an awesome fighter though he's scary sometimes but really cool

He should be number 1. Seems like people don't watch hunter x hunter much... Well, their loss...

This is the BEST character ever! I mean Togashi wasn't afraid to create a whole new level of weirdness... IT IS AWESOME!

12 Giovanni - Pokemon
13 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, more.
14 Crocodile - One Piece

Croc for the win

15 Deidara - Naruto Shippuden Deidara - Naruto Shippuden

Deidara is an artistic, cool-looking villain (hero to me). He's hot and sly and most appealing.

I personally don't like how they make all the good looking guys evil, Deidara in this case

I wish he was never a villain. He's just too awesome for that.

16 Sousuke Aizen - Bleach

Just screams the epitome of COOLness.

17 Sasori of the Red Sand - Naruto Shippuden Sasori of the Red Sand - Naruto Shippuden

Sasori was just plain awesome! And he has a sad but interesting background. He should be in the top ten!

18 Obito Uchiha/Tobi - Naruto Shippuden Obito Uchiha/Tobi - Naruto Shippuden

I feel for the guy, man. No matter how stupid he was.


He likes turtles
that makes him cool

19 Yami Marik - Yu-Gi-Oh!
20 Dio - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

By far the best villain in the series.
