Kira Yamato, Athrun Zala and Shin Auska, because they are all so obviously evil but they have hijacked the hero's role. For the preservation of our blue and pure world.

Strangely, I find myself coming to like a lot more antagonistic characters as of recent years. I wouldn't say absolute favourite in the shows, as I tend to like the protagonist/heroes more, but some I have come to really like.

Light Yagami (Death Note) - I honestly hated him when I first saw/read the series (and love L and Near more), but since coming back to it recently, I think I can say that Light has grown on me for some odd reason. And I have yet to come across someone else in an anime that can evil laugh like he did in the last episode.

Jellal (Fairy Tail) - I know he was cruel to Erza, but I couldn't stop thinking that every time he showed up after that (reforming), he just grew on me that I thought he was so cool. (This is probably when my mind started to go weird toward antagonists... )

Akise Aru (Mirai Nikki) - Does this count? He's technically more of an anti-hero, I guess, considering what Yuno is to the story. But he is against Yukki later on, and I can seriously say that it weren't for Akise, I would have dropped the show for sure.

Saryuu "SARU" Evan (Inazuma Eleven Go: Chrono Stone) - He didn't really become an active character until close to the end of the season, that I end up referring to him as "the White-haired-goggled kid" whenever he appeared. But after he was formally introduced, he just grew on me so fast, that now I can't get enough of him. Love him so much!

I think there are more, but I can't really recall anyone else right now...

As sated here, Roah from Fist of the North Star epitomises an Antagonist for me.

It's not about being evil, smart, or dastardly. And of course being sexy has little to do with it as well.

It's about being against the hero, as against as you can be. The antagonist serves as an obstacle for the hero to rise over, something greater than the hero.



And Roah REFUSES TO

I like pretty much all the antagonists in HxH. Chrollo, The King, and of course Hisoka. They are well-developed and very interesting.

I have a love-hate relationship with Izaya Orihara. Not sure if he's my favorite or my most hated. Either way, he's a bastard.

Some people mentioned Zuko from Avatar. If he counts, I wholeheartedly agree. One of the most complex "antagonists" I've seen in anime, and he has great character development.

I also like Judal from Magi. I'm sensing he'll be a Zuko-like character who ends up joining forces with Aladdin and co. His backstory seems like it'll be interesting (if the manga EVER gets around to fleshing him out).

And Kyubey. I don't know why. Maybe it's the cute factor. orz

I would have to say it is Knives from Trigun! There is no one more antagonistic then him. He opposes the very fiber of the hero of the anime if that isn't a great antagonist then I don't know what is

Takasugi, Kamui, Oboro, Jirochou from Gintama

I've never watched Naruto but i like that guy with the swirly mask who waves his hand and disappears like, "So long, peasants!" cracks me up every time I see it

Besides totally agreeing with ones like Vicious/Shinsuke Takasugi/Medusa/Kaiki already mentioned, a few antagonists I'd mention...

At least in the beginning, Accelerator (A Certain Magical Index) was an antagonist whose savagery always made me grin.


Kyōko (Is This a Zombie?) was great too; psychotic was never so sexy lol.


Kimura-sensei (Azumanga Daioh) is to be feared with how funny he can make his disturbingly perverted actions appear.


Might be more because of her design and fitting seiyuu that I remembered her but Suigintou (Rozen Maiden).


I'll never forget Twenty (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes), even if I wanted to...


And while debatable (aren't they potentially the best kind?), I do love that secret-holding Xelloss (Slayers Next).
