20 of the Most Dangerously Attractive Villains in Anime

By Editorial Staff in Entertainment On 17th September 2015

1. Lust (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Really though, what's in a name?

2. Nakago (Fushigi Yugi)

The world's a dark place when you can't see past your hair.

4. Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)

Personally, I think Inuyasha would've been a better series if they renamed it Sesshomaru and just made this guy the main character.

5. Esdeath (Akame ga Kill!)

Pfft, and people say she's evil (yes I know she's a terrible person let me have my moment).

6. Vicious (Cowboy Bebop)

Not that I hate his guts any less, but he is pretty bad-ass.

7. Erina Nakiri (Food Wars)

I suppose antagonist would be more fitting than villain, if even that at this point, but she definitely fits the first half of the bill.

8. Kunato (Knights of Sidonia)

He may be a bishie, but here's another one I'd be happy to see rot.

9. Diva (Blood+)

What's a little neck-biting among friends?

10. Krad (D.N.Angel)

His name is actually a clever anagram of his arch rival, Dark! See, if you spell it backwards, you-- What? It's not that clever? Oh, well then... At least he looks cool.

11. Annie (Attack on Titan)

That look came out of nowhere when I first watched the show, and I absolutely love her for it. If only she hadn't gone on a murderous titan rampage...

12. Aizen (Bleach)

Good looks, smarts, and a hilariously powerful ability that lets him force his opponents see whatever he wishes rather than reality? You know, Aizen, there is such a thing as being too greedy.

13. Kalifa (One Piece)

Admit it; you would love to have her for a secretary (barring any sexual harassment lawsuits).

14. Madara Uchiha (Naruto)

15. Rider (Fate/Stay Night)

Although her neck-stabbing habits still throw me for a loop...

16. Light Yagami (Death Note)

He's not just smart!

17. Rip Van Winkle (Hellsing)

Everyone looks better with a smile!

18. Shogo Makishima (Psycho Pass)

Seductive darkness taken human form? Creepy no matter how you slice it, but this guy is certainly charismatic.

19. Android 18 (Dragon Ball Z)

Not gonna lie, I laughed pretty hard when she kicked the crap out of Vegeta as a Super Saiyan. Which, coincidentally, is a huge testament to her strength as a fighter.

20. Grimmjow (Bleach)

You mad?

Then again, beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder, so let us know who you think deserves to be on this list, too! As always, thanks for the great suggestion, and keep them coming!
