It’s likely common to hate villains and love heroes but at some point, villains are super cool and can’t be hated. Here are the 5 best anime villains, ranked.
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 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.
