Ladd Russo is a favorite, so is Stan Claire and the grease monkey from the Baccano. The Joker tops them tho.


It is fine as long as their fictional and you understand that. The joker would really win if he could skew a real persons moral perspective.


Was going to say, the joker has a lot of fans XD

I find those types of characters to be much more interesting and realistic as opposed to the types of characters that are pure and can do no wrong.

I've always been fascinated by fictional villains and other amoral characters. All that matters is how well-written/executed they are.

I'd wind up hating half the cast of most of my favorite animes, if I were required to dislike characters with morally objectionable actions or motives.

It's fine to like them, provided you don't emulate their actions and decisions in real life situations (with the understanding that the consequences are going to be very different if you do those things).

For me, they're the reason I wind up watching most anime, particularly if they're well written. Assassination Classroom's Koro-sensei, for example. Destined to blow up the world, but gets embarassed, nosy, and actually wants to help the kids who are trying to kill him.

You can't have a good show without a well written antagonist, imho.


That profile pic tho, Chrollo's awesome


Togashi's a god, plain and simple. Albeit one who better be writing HxH manga, if he's reading this...

Chrollo is one of the most intriguing antagonist setups there is in Anime, I think.

Morally questionable characters are great as long as they are logically sound. Many great people have morally repulsive world views, but as long as they aren't the delusions of an insane person, it's fun to watch. It's even interesting to consider their point of view sometimes, because in many instances "morally misguided" people actually make more sense because they don't see the world through rose-tinted glasses.

I think they bring more depth to the story. Some of favorite characters are anti heroes and villains.
