In this life that we live there are two types of people; the ones who protect the Earth’s values as well as its people, and the ones who cause harm to others for their own self-gratification. These people are known as heroes and villains. When it comes to certain anime titles, the villain is more of the star than the hero is. When the villain is an attractive woman, then that statement is amplified ten fold. We’ve combed the web in order to find ten of the most villainous ladies of anime; some of which you might already know of…
Number 10: Chigusa (Negima!: Magister Negi Magi)
We’re kicking things off with our number 10 anime female villain, Chigusa. She makes her appearance in episodes 20 and 21 of the Negima! series and works for the Hoganji Faction alongside Fate Averruncus and Tsukuyomi. She’s an eastern style mage who despises western style mages. The reason for that you ask? We don’t know. During the Kyoto trip she kidnapped Konoka Konoe in order to use her power to resurrect an ancient demon known as lord Sukuna, of course another evil mage we all know put the breaks to that plan.
Number 9: Scanty & Kneesocks (Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt)
Okay, these two are more comically evil then they actually are, but they’ve got the skills and tricks to back it up. Scanty and Kneesocks are the mayor of Daten City’s daughters, and are also Panty and Stocking’s “Pains in their asses”! They possess the same level of skill the angels do, but with more experienced training. However for some reason they always find themselves defeated by the angels in a comical fashion, which is why we said that the Demon Sisters are more comically evil then they really are! XP
Number 8: Gisen Yagyu (Hyakka Ryoran: Samurai Girls)
Jubei’s ‘sister’ and the main antagonist for the first season of Hyakka Ryoran: Samurai Girls. Her samurai general is Lord Amakusa, who had a deep hatred for Great Japan and everything it stood for. Gisen wanted to revive her fallen master so that the two of them could rule over Great Japan together. She’s every bit as powerful as Jubei is when it comes to swordsmanship skill, and her Demon’s Eye adds a nice touch to her villain-like attributes.
Number 7: Raynare (High School DxD)
There’s bad, there’s evil, and there’s sexually sinister. There are only a handful of female anime villains that possess all three, and our number 7 pick just happens to be one of them. Raynare is a fallen angel who went under the alias Yuuma Amano and dated Issei during the first episode of the series. (She of course killed him a few dates later when she revealed her true identity to him.) She’s ruthless and cunning and will do whatever it takes to achieve her own objective, even if it means killing Asia in order to get her healing Sacred Gear. And that’s pretty damn sinister…
Number 6: Lust (F.M.A. Original & Brotherhood)
Ah, yes who could forget this lustful homunculus? Lust is one of seven homunculi that were artificially created by “Father”, and are named after the Seven Deadly Sins. (And are also a manifestation of his many traits, those being the seven deadly sins.) Lust acts as the groups assassin; killing anyone who discovers the true purpose of the homunculi’s plans, or just happens to be of no use to them as allies anymore. Even though her name is Lust, she isn’t as lustful as you might think.
Number 5: Medusa Gorgon (Soul Eater)
As one of the three Gorgon sisters, Medusa is the most evil and sinister of the three and is the main villain of the Soul Eater series. She is a witch as well as a scientist and will stop at nothing to achieve her own goals and success, no matter who she has to manipulate or step on along the way. (Talk about eeevil!) She’s far more cunning and intelligent then the DWMA give her credit for, which is also one of her greatest strengths in this aspect.
Number 4: Alphard Alshua (Canaan)
She is the leader of the Snake Terrorist group that was responsible for the Shibuya and Shanghai attacks, as well as the arch-enemy of Canaan; the series main protagonist. She’s also skilled in combat and carries an FN Five-Seven USG pistol as a side arm. During one 428: Shibuya Scramble, she betrayed her comrades and ran off with the Ua virus, but not before shooting one of her allies and leaving them for dead in the process. In her final battle with Canaan, she amputated her own arm and then became known as the “One-Armed Woman”.
Number 3: Esdeath (Akame ga Kill!)
When it comes to torturing victims there’s no one better than Esdeath from Akame ga Kill! She’s a high ranked general of the Empire as well as the leader of the Jaegers, and loves to torture her victims and watch them die slowly and painfully. If that’s not ruthless, evil, and sexy at the same time, then we don’t know what is.
Number 2: Shiro aka The Wretched Egg (Deadman Wonderland)
The first Deadman, Ganta’s childhood friend, and the whole reason why he’s even in Deadman Wonderland (the carnival/prison) in the first place. The Wretched Egg’s former personality is Shiro, who is the adoptive daughter of Hagire Rinichiro as well as Ganta Igarashi’s childhood friend. In order to keep Shiro’s bloodthirsty persona at bay, the Mother Goose mainframe emits a lullaby that keeps the Wretched Egg in check. (Kind of like how music soothes the savage beast.) Once it’s turned off however, the Wretched Egg returns and is capable of killing an entire squad or armed men with little to no effort.
Okay, that’s all for the previous nine female villains, but who’s the most villainous female of them all?
Number 1: The Ultimate Despair, Junko Enoshima (Danganronpa)
If you’re looking for the epidemy of evil, the nastiest of the nasty, and the most unremorseful human being on the face of the earth, then the only one who matches that description is none other than the mastermind of Danganronpa herself! Junko Enoshima is the series main antagonist who is the embodiment of all things evil, chaotic, and just oozes with despair. As a fashionista and the ultimate analyst Junko is responsible for the Most Horrific Event in the History of Hope’s Peak High. What makes her the most dangerous of all villains is that she doesn’t even have a reason to do the things that she does, she just does them out of boredom. It’s hard to believe that one strawberry haired valley girl would cause total despair and anarchy through the whole world…

Some interesting choices on the list here. My choice would be Medusa from Soul Eater. Her treatment of her child was absolutely horrible and that’s before you look at any of her other schemes.
