If this thread is to similar to another, feel free to one punch it, Oh great One punch mod-Kami Sama.

This thread is for those villains, who almost seemed to be more of an Anti-hero, trying to save the world or end up with a good resolution but went about it in a more or less morally ambiguous way.

My choice is Makishima, who almost seemed as if he was trying to expose the cruelty and uselessness of the Psycho-pass and Crime Co-efficient way of identifying future and current criminals.

Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere is chock-full of antagonists who aren't really bad. The "most evil" of the major ones so far is Innocentius, and even he shows signs of being fairly reasonable in the long term. Most of the adversaries are pretty decent folks overall - they're just fighting for different sides, mostly to preserve their home countries.


Arpeggio of Blue Steel is full of bad guys - who are nominally on the human side of the war. The Mental Models so far are often turning out to be the nicest folks in the story line. The "bad guy" Mental Models are mostly in the "following orders and didn't think too much about it" category.

I completely agree. Also..the "villain" from Shin Sekai Yori.

I assume what happened to Ilya in UBW wasn't that bad at all

The original Anti-Hero Raoh, spent the whole series wiping out villages/having his men murder,rape,steal, and "kill" kenshiros waifu. Just so Kenshiro can be the savior


And Treize Khushrenada would come in a close second. He pretty much threw the world into a war just to prove that humanity needs peace instead of endless violence, unfortunately he died a martyr's death so he could never see his vision

Lots of consequentialism in this thread.

It's a little creepy.

Kyuubei from Madoka Magica. I pretty much bought his whole comparison speech between humans and cattle. He's an insidious little bastard, but he does respect the people he victimizes, and the fact that he's both remorseless and agreeable supports his stance that he doesn't want to be doing what he does, but can't find any better way. The fact that he's still around after the "rewrite" in the finale shows that he actually is in it for the greater good.

Heartseed from Kokoro Connect. Heartseed really does seem to be looking for entertainment and entertainment only. While it puts the cast through some really intense experiences, it has never done anything to actually hurt them. The fact that they come out of the experience with some of their issues worked through is nice, but again, I don't think that's part of Heartseed's intention either. It just wants to watch the drama. It's douchey, but not evil, and easy to relate to, as someone who enjoys fiction.
