Most Dangerous Gangs of All Time

The Top Ten
1 MS-13

MS-13 is fearless. Who can say anything to the contrary? They started off for their own protection and then saw how strong they were and took matters into their own hands. They handle all types of stuff, and even law enforcement is afraid.

MS-13 is considered the most dangerous of all time, as reported on the news and across numerous channels. The Nazi Party might be demented, but these guys leave them for dead.

MS-13 has AK-47s and grenades. They're armed like an army and kill anything that crosses their path. What has this world come to?!

2 Crips

Crips can kill Bloods in 5 seconds. Bloods can never kill Crips nor any gangster around the street.

300,000 gang members, both inside and outside of jail. Rivals of the Bloods.

Unorganized or not, still vicious, most definitely in South Central.

3 Nazi Party

Before Nazi Germany, Hitler invented a gang called the Third Reich that would murder Jews and Hitler's competition for government positions. These were small positions before he became a dictator, one of which was a position in town hall. It was a gang of 13 that ended up being Hitler's head advisors and generals of Nazi Germany. They are a major reason for Hitler's rise to power. A gang of 13, not an army. I guess the Nazi Party isn't a gang, but the Third Reich should be on here.

The Nazis should be number 1 for taking over two continents and killing millions of people.

4 Bloods

Walk around L.A. with blue clothes and see what happens.

5 Yakuza

Yakuza have over 100,000 members in Japan alone, and thousands all around the world. They have been around much longer than the Nazis (Yakuza dates back to the 17th century) and have always had more members. They are the most organized gang according to many historians and officers. In fact, they are so organized and sophisticated in their work that they are like a legal enterprise. Most of the Japanese police members try their best not to interfere with the Yakuza's business, or the consequences will come. Even the Japanese military (ranked 9th most powerful) has trouble dealing with Yakuza.

The Nazis are dead and were never a gang. They were a political branch, not a gang.

MS-13 may be big. However, they cannot threaten the Yakuza. MS-13 is just a street gang with little skill compared to the Yakuza's powerful weaponry and accuracy. Yakuza is an enterprise of crime with many members experienced in martial arts such as karate, judo, jujitsu, aikido, and kempo, and firearm training. Many Yakuza have military experience as well. Yakuza have a wide range of weaponry that was successfully smuggled.

Most gangs on the list can't even hold a gun right (sideways?), not to mention they have to use one hand (the other hand is for holding their pants up). Yakuza's skill and experience in firearms outmatch so many gangs. Plus, many gangs think they can fight with little experience. The Yakuza have martial arts experience. It is pretty easy for a trained Yakuza to fight a street thug that has to keep his pants up.

Overall, the Yakuza should not be this low. Yakuza are experienced, skilled, and strategic. Not even the military messes with them.

6 Mexican Mafia

Mexicans are the majority in California. The Mexican gangs are so big they are divided: Norteños or Nuestra Familia control Northern California, and Sureños or the Mexican Mafia control Southern California. The reason why the Mexican Mafia is so big is because illegal immigrants come from Mexico, and a lot of youth join the Sureños gangs, which is the junior gang of the Mexican Mafia.

Mexican Mafia also controls non-Mexican gangbangers, which in the system are called paisas by other inmates. Not all illegal immigrants stay in Southern California. Some move up north and join Norteño gangs as well. The Mexican Mafia is the largest and most deadly out of all the prison gangs. The Mexican Mafia also has control over the Mexican drug cartels, such as Los Zetas.

7 Aryan Brotherhood
8 Russian Mafia

They are the most wanted mafia in the world. They have everything from guns to women. They will own everyone.

Mexicans will kidnap you. Italians will shoot you. Russians will kill your whole family while you watch.

When they drink vodka, you better watch your back! Because they will kill you without pity. Their driving skills might be bad, though.

9 Latin Kings

The quietest, yet most powerful "gang" in the U.S. and many other countries... Canada, England, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, P.R., and much more. They controlled Chicago's gang underworld and had New York and Florida in a chokehold during the 80s and 90s.

10 18th Street

MS-13 rivals. Brutal and powerful.

The Contenders
11 Cosa Nostra

Had the most power in American history, besides the American government.

12 La Nuestra Familia
13 Gangster Disciples

The most famous gangs are the Bloods, Crips, and Gangster Disciples.

14 Italian Mafia

Having been around since the 1800s and including killers such as Al Capone, there's no one who would even dare to mess with the Mafia. They were untouchable.

15 Hell's Angels MC

These biker gangs are notorious throughout America. They have had rivalries with the Mongols and Bandidos for over a decade now.

16 Public Enemy No. 1
17 Nazi Lowriders
18 Black Guerrilla Family
19 Almighty Vice Lord Nation
20 Texas Syndicate
21 New York Mafia

The most organized gang in the history of crime infiltrated many legitimate establishments and even the US government. These street gangs listed above La Cosa Nostra are just a bunch of kids shooting each other up. They have no leadership and therefore lack the strength of the Italian Mafia. Not to mention, these gangs pay street tax to the mob. Why do you think that is?
