I need a bit of help. 8D To start, I'm not the greatest writer, and I want to make a character who is evil and can create ingenious actions that the protagonist has a hard time to solve? Sort of Light Yagami, and how he finds ways to kill for justice. I wouldn't mind some kind of brainstorm of who is a great antagonist to you and what he/she did, what anime they came from and why them. I just need some inspiration. XD

<- this guy go read the manga and Lelouch.

Just make the guy omnipotent and you're pretty much good.

Chrollo from Hunter x Hunter.

He's a philosophy genius; if you read his monologues and dialogues in the anime. Remaining calm while his life is in danger. You never know how he's going to react to certain situations... he doesn't care when he's facing an opponent of equal power.

Such a mysterious and well thought-out character.

My favourite character from that anime.

Durarara's Izaya Orihara might fit the bill. While calling him a genius in the usual sense might not quite be accurate, he's basically your typical 'puppet master' type villain. He manipulates people psychologically in order to set up a majority of the conflict in the anime.

The best example I can think of though, is Johan of Monster. He's the genius antagonist cranked up to 11, and the entire anime focuses on dealing with him. I don't think there's any better inspiration you could find for that sort of character.

I'm closing this in the Anime forum because you've already asked this in the Writer's forum.

Also, starting new threads for personal reasons and not as discussion is against the rules (at least in the discussion-oriented forums--we may be a bit more lax in the creative forums, which is why I am leaving that post there.)
