Bertholdt Hoover (Attack On Titan)Bertholdt Hoover (Attack On Titan)

The Colossal Titan was the first main antagonist in Attack On Titan and was originally believed to be its final villain. As its user, Bertholdt Hoover conducted his campaign against Paradis from within the Scouts’ own ranks as a loyal Marleyan Warrior operating far behind enemy lines.

Considering his memorable fights and numerous escapes, Bertholdt is one of the coolest villains in the series. It is also easier to qualify him as an antagonist than someone like Reiner or Eren, both of whom have spent time as a hero at some point in the story.

Marik (Yu-Gi-Oh!)Marik (Yu-Gi-Oh!)

Marik Ishtar was a man possessed by the malevolent spirit within the Millennium Rod. In this regard, he became a dark reflection of what Yugi stood for in Yu-Gi-Oh! Sinister and bloodthirsty, Marik enjoyed torturing his victims.

For example, he trapped Mai Valentine in a prison that was slowly filled with insects. While she was forced to watch her friends enjoy life without her. Marik is cool since he depicts the dark potential behind a millennium item.

Hisoka Morrow (Hunter X Hunter)Hisoka Morrow (Hunter X Hunter)

Hisoka embodied the darkest aspects of what it meant to be a hunter. He sought an opponent that could push him past his limits and provide a good fight. However, he lacked any compassion toward this end and was particularly creepy to Gon many times in Hunter x Hunter.

Nonetheless, there are dozens of qualities rendering Hisoka a cool character. Not only did he defeat Gon numerous times, but he also allied with the Zoldycks. As a result, his fights were reliably entertaining.

All For One (My Hero Academia)All For One (My Hero Academia)

All For One is the perfect final villain for My Hero Academia. Ruthlessly self-interested and older than any other living character. He was able to destabilize Japan even from the confines of Tartarus.

Just like Nana and Toshinori, Deku must face All For One as the successor of One For All. Similarly, Izuku must overcome his predecessors by ensuring that the villain never endangers the generations to come. However, All For One has his own advantages in this battle, including his usage of Tomura’s younger, stronger body and his bottomless supply of stolen quirks.

Akaza (Demon Slayer)Akaza (Demon Slayer)

Akaza is one of the coolest and overall best anime villains. He has devastating combat techniques, a distinct appearance, and infectious enthusiasm for deadly rivalries and combat. Already, Demon Slayer fans are looking forward to seeing him again, where he will probably fight Tanjiro in person.
