What are some supporting characters in anime

Top 20 Evil Characters in Anime

With unlimited strength and sturdy armor, our heroes need their own evil counterparts to keep them at bay. Known as enemies, antagonists, or even a great plot tool, these villains are the main motivators for the protagonists and their friends to grow and seek strength.

However, not all evil characters are villains as some may be antihero while others may not even deserve that title.

While most of the bad guys are respected, the characters I'm talking about will make your skin crawl in disgust and itch your hands to give them a good punch. They are the epitome of evil and have certainly made Hell their home.

Although these sick characters make us question humanity, they are the perfect addition to any show, be it to highlight the goodness of the protagonist or just to traumatize the audience for fun.

As I read this, I am sure that some of them must already have popped up in your head, for example the creator of a particular long haired dog (honestly, I am still traumatized after this scene).

But why stop there? Let's see the 20 most evil characters in the anime and find out where this creature is.

[Disclaimer and Warning Trigger: There will be spoilers as well as words that some people may trigger. Please proceed carefully.]

Anime - God's tower

Goal - See the stars

Crime - Murder and torture

Just one mention of her is enough to enrage any "Tower of God" fan.

Despite being one of the most hated characters, is she evil enough to be on this list? The answer is yes.

Rachel has murdered, tortured (RIP Dan's legs), manipulated, cheated on so many people, and her only excuse for doing so? See the stars. Oh, and becoming a hero too.

She is a manipulative, insecure girl who will not hesitate to do anything and everything to achieve her goal. In his pursuit The worst thing she did is betray Baam, the boy who dedicated everything, including his life for her.

19. Nobuyuki Sugou

Anime - Sword art online

Goal - Become the god of the SAO

Crime - Sexual assault and attempted murder

This man has tried all kinds of crimes, be it abuse, sexual assault, kidnapping or hacking. Nobuyuki uses his position both in-game and in the real world to respond to his obsession with Asuna.

18. Kyuubey

Anime - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Goal - Prevent the destruction of the universe

Crime - Other than almost destroying worlds, manipulation and betrayal.

Have you ever heard of this statement: "The man who does evil and doesn't think about it is perhaps the most dangerous of them all?"

The next character on this list, that is, Kyuubey, embodies it perfectly, aside from the fact that it is more of a cute pet than a man.

While his breed is known to have no emotions, He deceives little girls about the pact and basically makes them sign a contract with dire consequences.

Just like Faust, who signed the contract with a devil in the shape of a poodle, these girls do the same thing, only that he is in the shape of a cute feline creature.

Despite his goal of preventing the destruction of the universe, It causes the impending destruction of several planets and almost ends the timeline itself.

17. Donquixote Doflamingo

Just to give you an idea of ​​the deeds he did, Doflamingo killed his father and brother, took over a kingdom, and for years began a chain of misery, enslaved thousands of children to the elderly.

Goal - Deliver justice

She sees the view in black and white, is merciless, and kills without a moment's hesitation. She is also completely blind to the evil around her and only acts violently in matters that she believes need justice.

Her incoherent view of the world and her actions make Seryu one of the most evil and hated characters of all time.

15. Light yagami

Anime - Death Note

Goal - Create a world without crime

Crime - Mass murderer

Light Yagami has become the blueprint for antihero, and it's obvious why. He is one of the best-written characters whose descent into madness is accelerated after the death note is discovered.

With a book that can kill, his sense of justice warps as he sets out to create a perfect world. What makes him such an amazing and evil character is his failure to see anything wrong in his actions.

Light managed to control the world around him with the flick of his pen and led it in chaos despite the apparent lack of crime.

He showed no remorse for his family, close ones, or even Misa. He killed everyone who blocked his path and ended up falling on the same weapon that allowed him to.
