Where will a story be without a villain? I actually root for them more than the hero. A hero can’t be a hero without a villain. I love characters with evil, sadistic, and non remorseful personalities. They never let you down. What more can you ask from them.?
If I had the opportunity to be a hero or villain, best believe I will be the villain. I do not have to apologize for being me. I don’t have to worry about anyone relying on me and I let them down. Or having people turn their backs on me.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some villains that I just do not like because they are way too sadistic to a point where it is beyond crazy (e.g Father – Fullmetal alchemist)
Below are my top 10 villains. No specific order.
Light Yagami – Death Note
Light Yagami was an extremely smart regular high school teen. One day he finds a note book called the Death Note which was dropped by Shinigami Ryuk. The book gives the owner power to kill someone by writing their name in the book.
What I really like about Light is, at first it was used for good. Get rid of all the really bad criminals. But the power got to his head and he started killing anyone who got in his way. I feel like many humans would react the same way. Once you have power it’s gets to your head. I know I would act the same way. The one thing I did not like was when Light kills L. He was my favorite character.
When Light died too best believe I was crying my eyes out.
Esdeath – Akame Ga Kill
The Ice Queen Esdeath is probably my favorite female villain. She is the strongest and highest ranking General in the empire. The leader of the Jaegers which was an elite team of killers. She will kill anyone who gets in her way. Doesn’t matter if you are innocent or not. She is sexy and sadistic. She had a little heart for her obsession of Tatsumi. That was the only time you really got to see her soft side. But when she wanted something for her self she would take down anyone who gets in her way.
I was deeply upset when she was killed by Akame.
Vegeta – Dragon Ball
Vegeta the Saiyan prince is my first favorite anime villain because Dragon Ball Z was my first anime. When he came to earth with Nappa and went head to head with Gohan, Piccolo, Goku and the rest, I was in awe. I know Vegeta isn’t really bad in the later series but I liked him better when he was bad. He had no mercy for Goku and the gang. He wanted to destroy earth. I loved it. I don’t mind the good Vegeta but I just like bad guys.
Medusa Gorgon- Soul Eater
I really don’t care much for witches. I’m more of a vampire type of person, but Medusa can change me into liking witches. She was so manipulative, devious and awesome. I liked how she was the nurse who really had ulterior motives. Her vector magic with the snakes was so cool. I love snakes and have one so I can relate to her even more.
I was rooting for her and Dr. stein to be together because they were a true match.
When they had that fight and I thought she was dead I was super upset. Not sure if I was the only who was happy she came back even though she took over Rachel’s body.
But either way she is one of my favorite villains.
Itachi Uchiha – Naruto Shippuden
Itachi! Sasuke’s older brother, killer of the Uchiha clan and member of the akatsuki. Is he a villain? In the beginning yes! Only because that is what the writers wanted you to think. But when he is killed you find out he had a plan that was no where near evil. He wanted to help his brother and the Uchiha clan. He was misunderstood. But I have to say he is one of my favorite villains because that is what the media puts out there. Poor Itachi 😭😭😭😭😭
Hidan – Naruto Shippuden
Hidan was definitely one of the most sadistic characters. He enjoyed torturing his enemies and he had no remorse at all. His ritual fighting style with the blood of his enemy he can have control of their bodies. He will stab himself in different areas and his opponent with be injured in that area. I loved his sarcasm and funny outburst with his cussing.
Another crazy thing about him was he could never die. No matter how hard the ninjas of the leaf village tried they just could not kill Hidan. Until Shikamaru came up with a strategic plan.
I wish Hidan could have been in the series much longer.
Sasori – Naruto Shippuden
Sasori the puppet master was such a cool character. He used to work with fake puppets but started using human puppets. Sasori was one of the most powerful Akatsuki. Throughout the beginning of the series you saw his human puppet Hiruko who worked with the Akatsuki. Then later in the series Sasori is revealed with his youthful good looks using Hiruko as a puppet the whole time. This red head puppet master had two fights that I loved in the series. The fight against his grandmother Chiyo and Sakura Haruno. Then his next fight against Sakura. You got to see is puppetry put into action. It was so cool to see him work with so many puppets at the same time.
I was extremely upset that Sakura of all people killed him.
Annie Leonhardt – Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)
I have a hate love relationship with Annie. I loved the fact that she was quiet and to herself. She was a strong skilled fighter. I was all for Annie because I always like tough chicks. The moment she fought Eren and used her signature fighting move, I knew she was great. Then boom she is the female Titan. I was like Noooooo. Whyyyyyyy???? The secrets she held was astonishing. She did so much to ruin the squads. The worse was when she killed members of Levi’s Special Operations Squad especially Petra.
When her and Eren were fighting inside the walls as Titans she crystallized herself. Now we can’t get any answers out of her.
I do think she is misunderstood. Her father told her the world is her enemy. So she grew up with this mission to destroy humanity. But I still like her.
Lust – Fullmetal Alchemist
Lust is my favorite homunculus and one of the most dangerous. I loved her claws that can rip through her enemies. She played the cool, calm and sexy role but can kill anyone in an instant. I love the way she can manipulate anyone. You couldn’t kill her easily because of her regenerating abilities.
I was not happy when Mustang did finally kill her.
But can you blame her for being evil, her father created this monster.
Ulquiorra Cifer – Bleach
This Espada was such a mysterious character. Ulquiorra was my favorite Arrancar and possibly favorite Bleach Character. He only fought when he needed to. Or if anyone gets in his way. He would kill his enemies and even his comrades.
When he killed his enemies he would stab them with his bare hands in the same location as his hollow hole. He was just a cold and hollow person. No emotions at all.
This is why I loved this mysterious character.
I was so upset when Ichigo killed him.
So in conclusion, why dislike or kill the villains. We need evil to balance out the stories we are reading or watching. Lets start rooting for them.
