This one was a little delayed from yesterday due to wi-fi problems that we’ve been having, but now that we’ve gotten everything back to normal, it’s high time for another Top 5 filler post! This time around we’re picking out five anime villains who have gotten their just desserts due to the foul actions that they have committed. When it comes to the world of anime there’s nothing more satisfying that seeing an antagonist (main, major, or minor) getting everything that they deserve. From killing off a major support character to slaughtering an entire village, anime villains can be the worst – which may make their death that much more justifiable when it happens.
Number 5: High School DxD (Season 1) – Raynare/Yuuma
This one might be a favorite to a handful of DxD fans. Raynare is a fallen angel who wants Aisa’s Sacred Gear all for herself, and doesn’t care who she has to kill to get it – even Aisa (which she did). Issei however wasn’t having it, and challenged her to a battle. She may have put the boots to him earlier in the battle, but Issei manages to get a couple shots in, before Rias finished the job.
Number 4: FMA Brotherhood – Envy
Many Brotherhood fans already know how the whole war got started, and the answer lies with one of the most upfront homunculi in the series; Envy. In spite of all of the horrible things that he’s done, by the time you get to the part of his death, you (almost) feel sorry for the poor humunculus.
Number 3: Naruto Shippuden – Danzo
As any Naruto fan who’s seen the fight between Danzo and Sasuke, and they’ll say that he’s had it coming for a long time. From destroying the Hidden Leaf Village to causing Nagato to become Pain, Danzo is one of the most hated villains in the series; in which fans were ever so satisfied that he got what he deserved.
Number 2: Danganronpa: The Animation – Junko Enoshima
Some love her, some hate her. Whatever side you stand on, you pretty much know what she’s about and why she’s obsessed with despair. Junko caused the most Horrific Event in High School History, brought nearly the whole world to its knees in agonizing despair, treats her subordinates like @#!$, and worst of all…killed Chiaki Nanami. We’re pretty sure that Junko’s self-execution in the name of hope made a lot of people happy.
Number 1: Dragon Ball Z – Frieza
For every DBZ fan; seeing the most arrogant, malevolent, egotistical, and cruelest villain in the DBZ universe, getting slashed and blasted to bits by a Super Saiyan from the future, is one of the reasons why this clip is our Number 1. Although defeated by Goku on Planet Namek Frieza sought vengeance against the saiyan from Earth. He retooled his body and came to earth along with King Cold and his army, but was quickly defeated by Trunks – a Super Saiyan from the future. Frieza’s pretty stubborn at dying as much as he is at being evil, and vows to one day become the emperor of the universe.
So there you have it! Our Top 5 anime villains who have gotten everything that they deserved. Most of them find some way to come back from the dead (via anime logic), but watching their deaths can be nothing short of sweet satisfaction – to most of us.
Although this post is finished up for the moment, there’s more to come later on this week! As always we thank you guys and gals from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support, and our prayers go out to the people (and anime fans) of Hawaii in the wake of Hurricane Lane. #PeaceIsWithYou 🙂
