Whether it’s in an alternate world, a galaxy far, or a house across the street, an anime villain has many forms. But what makes them all alike, if done correctly, is they can leave a permanent mark on an audience.
Whether they are pure evil like The Demon King or so bad we can’t help but watch like Zeke Jaeger from Attack on Titan, villains can make good anime into classics.
Here are the 10 greatest anime villains of all time.

His hands were initially formed by a person who was murdered by Shigaraki around the period his first Quirk manifested: his mother was on his necks, his grandfather was on his arms; his grandmother’s forearms, his grandmother’s; his sister’s ankles, and those in his chest and shoulders were shaped by two unknown punks in the lane. The hand that wears and covers the face of Shigaraki and that he often carries in his pocket is the left hand of his father named him the “Father.”
