15 Best Anime With An Evil/Villain Main Character

Sometimes you want your protagonist to be like a beacon of light, with perfect morals and nakama power levels that most mortals can’t understand.

But other times, you just want someone evil.

It keeps you on your toes. And the edge that comes with an evil MC is usually pretty hype.

So which anime are worth checking out that feature a villainous MC? We’ll be ranking some of the best in this list.


15. Code Geass

Code Geass anime screenshot

I want to get the classics out of the way first, as I honestly doubt there are a lot of people who don’t know these gems.

Code Geass is a story of rebellion. But there’s no demon lord or alien race, just a different country.

People from that country are not evil. They have hopes and dreams of their own, and do their best to protect their new home.

But one man decides to turn all of that on its head. As he, a formal royal, wants the glory of his old nation back. And wants to avenge those who were hurt during war, most notably his family.

He does pull a good guy move in the end, but man was the death toll high.


14. Death Note

Death Note anime

Death Note hits a similar “note” in the sense that a single dude decides what’s best for his country and for the people. And he uses his newly acquired powers to get that result.

The protagonist Light is definitely a lot more insane, and puts himself way closer to God than Lelouch ever did. Even when he was offing criminals, he had no right to do so.

But when the police catches wind of his operation, that’s where all morals get thrown out the window.

Everyone in his way is in the way of justice and needs to be dealt with. There’s some kinda evil in there.


13. Akame ga Kill!

Akame ga Kill! screenshot

Now this show fools you into thinking that the main cast is made up of good guys. But I honestly think that no one in this show fits under the category of “good”.

I mean, for one they’re all assassins and have murdered those who oppose them.

And we have seen that their enemies are not pure evil either. They’re basically just soldiers following orders who have loving families waiting for them at home.

The entire show is a bloodbath. And I gave up on calling the main characters “good guys” quite a while ago.


12. Assassination Classroom

Assassination Classroom anime

Pre spoiler section: at first glance, this show seems way too PG and light to have a serious evil character.

But nope. One of the main characters and the central face of she show, Koro-sensei, literally threatens the government that he’s going to blow up the moon unless they adhere to his demands.

He then teaches a group of children how to be assassins.

I mean, he taught them other things as well… but still kind of sus.

Now spoilers ahead:

Okay so he wasn’t planning on blowing up the moon. But the dude is literally one of the best assassins in the world, and probably has more skeletons in his closet than any typical “bad guy”.


11. Dororo

Dororo anime screenshot

This one is a bit philosophical for sure.

To boil it down, the main characters gets the choice to either get a normal life, or for his country to prosper. And he gives it no second thought and goes after what he believes is his right, even though it meant countless deaths.

Heck, he even killed quite a few soldiers to get his way, going as far as to fight his own brother.

Although I do not want to call Hyakkimaru evil, he’s so far removed from the typical good guy MC that I almost feel like he fits into this list.


10. Great Pretender

Great Pretender anime

The cast of the Great Pretender features the best international group of conmen the world has ever seen.

They travel around the world targeting rich assholes and not letting up until they’ve scammed them of every last dime.

That last part might make them sound like the next Robin Hood, but they don’t give any of that money away. Rather they just buy an island, some drinks, throw a party, stuff like that.

So they might not be warlords. But I think it would be a stretch to call them the good guys.


9. Nanbaka

Nanbaka anime

Nanbaka takes place in Japan’s number 1 prison, and the criminals that live within.

Just think of Deadman Wonderland but no one was falsely convicted.

Even though the main four characters seem like jovial dudes who just want to play around, you have to remember that they’re in prison for a very good reason.

In fact, this is far from their first prison stint. They just happened to escape all the others.

Nico and Juugo are especially worrying, but I don’t want to spoil why.


8. Talentless Nana

Talentless Nana screenshot

Talentless Nana is a giant “Among Us” game, but the impostor is heavily outnumbered and the crewmates all have superpowers.

As you might have guessed, we follow the impostor on this ride as a young girl named Nana is tasked with killing all of her superpowered classmates.

She doesn’t have any powers herself. So she uses a combination of wit, deceit, charm, and poison to start thinning out the herd.

But the more people she kills, the more the difficulty goes up, as everyone is more careful and more hostile.


7. Blast of Tempest

Blast of Tempest anime

Okay this one is really confusing, but I’ll try to keep it short without spoiling anything.

A dude dates his best friend’s sister in secret, which is already a bit shitty.

But then a goddess gets thrown into the mix, and a giant power tug of war commences with the two friends being left a choice on which side to pull.

And let’s just say that a lot of lying, some backstabbing, and the most detailed whodunit game begins soon after.

It might sound confusing, but give it a watch and you’ll understand where I’m coming from.


6. Hellsing Ultimate

Hellsing Ultimate anime

Alucard is basically the definition of evil.

He’s an overpowered vampire dude who can massacre entire armies at will, and consistently takes on forms that even my paralysis demon fears.

He doesn’t care too much for anyone but his master. And he loves toying with his enemies as they approach death.

His enemies, by the way, are literal popes and saints. Just in case you weren’t getting the evil vibe yet.

But even then, Alucard is hands-down the most likable character in that entire show. So I’ll turn a blind eye to all the murder.


5. Terror in Resonance

Terror in Resonance anime

Terror in Resonance follows two terrorist buddies as they plant bombs around the city and taunt the police to find them.

How do they taunt them, you might ask?

By giving away the location of the bomb through riddles.

That might sound like one giant prank or something, but they’re very much still terrorists. Regardless of how much that ending made me cry and whether I thought they were justified, a terrorist is a terrorist.


4. Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied anime

Elfen Lied was the first anime where I actually felt like I needed parental supervision.

The central character has a superpower, and was experimented on consistently because of it. And let’s just say that she wasn’t quite thrilled with this state of affairs.

So she used her incredibly powerful invisible tendrils to politely ask the scientist and security guards to allow her to leave.

Yeah, that’s what happened. I totally did not have nightmares after a certain graveyard scene. Totally.


3. Vinland Saga

Vinland Saga anime screenshot

You know how in most cases, the protagonist whose father was killed vows to get revenge and then travels the country gaining new friends and learning about themselves? Then they realize that revenge was not the answer, stuff like that?

Well the protagonist of Vinland Saga kind of screwed up the formula.

He wanted to kill his father’s murderer, but just ended up becoming his private assassin instead.

And as his assassin, he murdered dozens and dozens of completely innocent men. Just in the hopes of becoming stronger and getting revenge.

That’s quite a new way to go about it.


2. Overlord

Overlord anime screenshot

The protagonist of Overlord doesn’t really want to be evil. He’s just stuck with that role as he gets isekai’d into his video game where all the NPCs view him in that light.

Wanting to play the part, but also in hopes of finding other stuck players, the man just decides to take over the world.

And if that isn’t a bad guy narrative, I don’t know what is.

Although to be honest, his henchmen are far worse than he ever could be. Shalltear is one ruined tea pot away from a genocide, I can feel it.


1. The Saga of Tanya the Evil

The Saga of Tanya the Evil anime

She literally has the word “evil” in her title, and I can’t say that she hasn’t deserved it.

Although she’s technically just a soldier doing her duty, she goes about it in the worst way.

She feels no remorse whatsoever from murder. Never remembering the faces of those she has killed. And even her own subordinates aren’t safe around her.

If you’re acting up, she’ll bash your head open with a pistol and berate you with insults as you’re eating dirt. Yeah, she’s something else.

Top 15 Best Manga With An Evil Villain MC (Ranked)

Heroes are usually the protagonist in most stories.

After all, they’re chivalrous, gallant, and easy to look up to. However not all main characters are good guys. Some are vile, heinous, despicable villains.

As distasteful as it sounds, any manga with a villain MC allows readers to understand how the insides of a villain’s head works, for better and for worse.

And maybe readers can even empathize (or agree) with such wretched ideals.

Well either way, I’ve come up with this huge list of the best manga featuring villains as a main character. Enjoy!


15. Masamune-kun no Revenge (Masamune-kun’s Revenge)

Masamune-kun no Revenge (Masamune-kun’s Revenge) manga

Focusing on the titular Masamune, this series revolves around his planned revenge on the girl that dumped him from being a fatty.

The premise is easy to relate to, and even his plan is something my petty soul applauds.

It has an interesting take on how petty a person could react in the face of rejection.

Although the premise sounds very evil-y, the execution is borderline comedy. Still, Masamune has gone through great lengths for the sake of his revenge and earned his place (albeit the last) on this list.


14. Dead Tube

Dead Tube manga cover

Putting YouTube and all the rumors about the dark web together gives us the Dead Tube.

The main character, Machiya Tomohiro, initially seemed like a victim. But he eventually turned into a full-blown psychopath.

The way he supported Mai both as a cameraman and accomplice deserves more than just being called evil.

He’s wicked to the core.

From stealing, murder, and basically every illegal act, Dead Tube has it. Needless to say, it contains a lot of nudity, gore, and horror.


13. Accel World

Accel World manga cover

It’s arguable that the protagonists of Accel World aren’t villainous.

However, their true objective is revealed further down the story.

Kuroyukihime backstabbed and killed a level 9 player, breaking the truce between kings. Since then, she recruited teammates in her bid to reach level 10 and end the game, which everybody enjoys.

Accel World could have ranked higher on this list, but the manga is actually a little worse than the anime and the novel, so it stays here.


12. Peephole (Ana Satsujin)

Peephole (Ana Satsujin) manga

Etsurou Kurosu is a different kind of villain compared to the ones above.

He doesn’t engage in any heinous acts. But he does nothing to stop them, either.

Kurosu was a shut-in who had lost his will to live. When he’s about to commit suicide the hook breaks on him, and creates a peephole.

He used it to get off while watching his neighbor… but one night, he saw her brutally murder someone.

He kept silent about it, but eventually his neighbor found out. And that’s when they started to date.

Peephole effectively shows what happens inside a serial killer’s mind. The way it shows how Rio murders people without emotions, then acts normally afterwards, perfectly depicts how detached to the world she is.


11. Shamo

Shamo manga cover

At one point in time, something inside Ryou Narushima’s head snapped.

Since then, he has become a mad dog that bites everybody that comes near him.

Ryou seeked to improve himself and get stronger no matter the cost.

That included threats and beating others.

Shamo is a martial arts manga that tackles various forms of combat sports and disciplines. But that it also became its weakness.

It has a decent storyline, albeit a slow pace. The problem, however, is how Ryou tend to regress to nothingness after every arc.

It’s like Dragon Ball, but Goku gets weak again after defeating an enemy.


10. Kangoku Jikken (Prison Lab)

Kangoku Jikken (Prison Lab) manga

Prison’s Lab’s purpose is to bring out the worst out of people.

So it’s unsurprising that Aito Eyama becomes a ruthless, unreasonable human.

From the list so far, Eyama easily fits the description of a vile villain.

After being bullied for three years, he finally gets the chance to take his revenge. He receives a letter inviting him to be the captor in a captive game.

He chose his bully, Aya Kirishima, as his captive. And tormented her the best he could.

Initially, Eyama is an easy character to empathize with. After all, it’s just a story of a victim putting justice into his own hands.

However he eventually turned out to be a despicable human taking revenge without any sense of morality or reason.


9. Fukushuu Kyoushitsu (Revenge Classroom)

Fukushuu Kyoushitsu (Revenge Classroom) manga

A bit similar to Kangoku Jikken (Prison Lab), Ayana Fujisawa also aims to seek vengeance on her bullies.

Unlike Eyama, however, she wants to take revenge on her entire class. And she didn’t need any divine intervention to snap out of it.

Fukushuu Kyoushitsu banks on the satisfaction from getting sweet revenge, although it’s not really extremely gory nor violent. On the contrary, Ayana’s revenge is more often psychological in nature, but still gets the job done.

Ayana’s grudge spares no one and no reason.

No matter what, she’s sworn to make all of her classmates suffer.


8. Overlord

Overlord manga cover

Overlord’s timeline (in the manga) is quite interesting.

It first came out as a light novel, then as an anime. The manga is actually the final medium that came out.

That said, it’s also behind in content compared to the other two.

The world domination in Overlord started when Momonga gets trapped in Yggdrasil, an MMORPG. He gets isekai-ed as his own character, the strongest wizard in that world.

Overlord’s strength lies in army building. Momonga doesn’t have a convenient ability to instantly strengthen his forces, so he has to rely on a more realistic method.

The Floor Guardians pillage, abduct, experiment on humans, and conquer, all to expand Nazarick’s domain.


7. Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch manga

With the huge success of the anime, Code Geass also became a manga.

The manga, however, came out to be a bit of a disappointment compared to the anime.

Although it followed the same titular Lelouch, there have been a few tweaks here.

One of the biggest tweaks is the lack of knightmare frames, which is a huge part of the anime.

Nonetheless, Lelouch is still the same revolutionary wanting to take down the empire, giving him a deserved slot on this list.


6. Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied manga

Probably one of the most controversial works in the world of manga, Elfen Lied prides itself for its gory and brutal killings.

Lucy, a well-known yandere, leaves a bloodbath in her wake every time she changes personalities.

However, it’s not just pointless killings.

As the story progresses a lot of things come to light: the reasons behind the powers, killings, and the split personality.

Admittedly, Elfen Lied isn’t a manga for everyone. But it also isn’t a total piece of garbage.


5. Akumetsu

Akumetsu manga cover

Unlike most entries of this list, the titular Akumetsu takes up vigilantism to cleanse the world.

That simply means massacring people for the sake of his personal sense of justice.

When Japan’s economy crashes, the number of scum increases. Which also increases Akumetsu’s targets.

Akumetsu breaks down complex ideologies of both what is good, and what is evil, and leaves its readers pondering.

Of course, there’s also a hefty amount of “beating the bad guys” while technically also being a bad guy himself.

What’s there not to like?


4. Homonculus

Homonculus manga

The manga Homonculus has an interesting set of characters.

There’s Susumu Nakochi, a supposed homeless man living in his car, and Manabu Ito, a medical student who paid Nakochi to be his guinea pig.

At the start, Nakochi passes a good natured protagonist acquiring a supernatural power.

But he eventually gets drunk on power and goes completely mad.

By the end of the manga, he’s reduced to a mad man and a lowly murderer.


3. Yoru ni Naru to Boku wa (At Night I Move)

Yoru ni Naru to Boku wa (At Night I Move) manga

Yoru ni Naru to Boku wa gives off heavy Death Note vibes, even though there are very few similarities between the two.

Both series feature heavenly psychological warfare between the criminal and the law, but the similarity ends there.

Unlike Light’s quest to fulfill his own idea of justice, Wataru just wants to avenge his sister. He doesn’t just rely on his ability to invade and kill people’s dreams; he also uses his head to do it in a way that makes his revenge far more satisfying.

Also, the mental and psychological battle between Wataru and Misumi is what deserves this manga a top spot on this list.


2. Berserk

Berserk manga cover

Berserk is already an acclaimed classic for solid reasons.

Although the artwork isn’t as great as today’s standards, it’s entirely well balanced with a great set of characters and just the right amount of mature content.

Despite the characters being egocentric, they don’t really come off as demonically evil.

Instead, they’re always treading the gray area of morality. It does a good job portraying human nature during extreme situations, as well as in pursuit of their own ideals.

That is, of course, while hacking and slashing people with a humongous sword.


1. Death Note

Death Note manga cover

I think #3 on this list already spoiled my top pick, but Death Note still holds first place.

After all, Light, L, and Ryuk’s story is already a renowned classic in the world of manga.

Although Light Yagami’s original intent is morally good, his method of slaughtering whoever he deemed as evil, as well as those who hinders his plans, easily makes him the story’s main villain.

And Light’s chaotic goodness has messed with its readers’ minds from the first arc.

The schemes and plot twists are second to none here. Then add in the psychological and mental warfare between L and Light, and it all proves just how much of a masterpiece Death Note is.
