Just like most movies and stories, anime has its own villains too. Not all of them are true villains though since they probably have reasons to become one. Here are the top 3 villains in anime that fans couldn’t help but to root for!
- Light Yagami from Death Note
Light Yagami (Japanese: 夜神 月ライト, Hepburn: Yagami Raito) is the main protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. Despite that, he later ends up being one of the most savage antagonists in the anime. A lot of fans have mixed emotions towards Light, but most of them seem to love the anti-hero action he does. What about you?
2. Johan Liebert from Monster
Johan Liebert (Japanese: ヨハン・リーベルト, Hepburn: Yohan Rīberuto) is a titular “monster” and the main antagonist of the series. He is a shrewd and emotionless serial killer, who uses his intelligence, and talent for carrying out his plans. The thing that makes him a scary villain, a true monster, is his humanity. His social adaptability, charisma, and calm collected nature make him appear normal to his victims. He also gets compared a lot to Light Yagami, since they both have something in common.
3. Vicious from Cowboy Bebop
Vicious (Japanese: ビシャス, Hepburn: Bishasu) was a member of the Red Dragon crime syndicate and a veteran of the Titan War. Vicious is the main antagonist of the anime series Cowboy Bebop. He only desires control of the Red Dragon syndicate, and he’ll kill anyone and do anything to ensure his success.
