Anime Villain

An anime villain is a fictional character in Japanese animated television series that displays negative behaviors and often directs harm toward others. Anime villains come from a wide variety of genres and often have extensive powers that they use for evil intentions.

The series featuring some of the most infamous and greatest anime villains include Dragon Ball Z, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, Kill La Kill, Naruto, and My Hero Academia. Many notorious anime villains originate from series from the early '90s to the mid-2000s.

In anime series, villains are often different and stand apart from antagonists. An antagonist creates lesser forms of rivalry and chaos, often in forms of inconvenience and trickery toward the protagonist, but not direct harm that can result in fatality.
