Bad Never Felt So Good: Fans Choose Their Favorite "Villainous Heroes"

7,000 anime fans put in their votes for their favorite not-so-lawful heroes

 

Some of the best anime characters exist in a "gray" area—gentleman thieves, antiheroes, and villains with a surprisingly understandable motivation. Anime is full of these Villainous Heroes... but which ones rank highest among fans?

 

Japanese polling site goo Ranking asked 7,000 readers to pick their favorites. The Top Ten is a rogue's gallery of good bad guys, bad good guys, and others who don't quite fit the heroic mold. 

 

As usual, bear in mind that this poll was conducted by a third party, and this list was not constructed by any members of Crunchyroll News:

 

10: Accelerator, A Certain Scientific Accelerator


9: Black Jack

 

8: Sebastian Michaelis, Black Butler


7: Lelouch Lamperouge, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion


6: Char Aznable, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin


5: Lupin the 3rd

 

4: Light Yagami, Death Note


3: Ainz Ooal Gown, Overlord

 

2: Korosensei, Assassination Classroom

 

1: Duke Togo, Golgo 13


Also high in the rankings were Akira Fudo from DEVILMAN crybaby, Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul, and Kiritsugu Emiya from Fate/Zero.
