Top 10 Sexiest Anime Villains

These guys put the B. A. D in husbando. Welcome to MsMojo and today we are counting our picks for the top ten sexiest anime villains.

For this list, we’ll be looking at male anime characters that may be on the wrong side of things but are undeniably attractive. Good boys gone bad and bad boys gone good – they’re all viable for this list. Also, be on the lookout for a fair few spoilers down the line.

#10: Dio Brando
“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” (2012-)

Would he tread on anyone for power? Oh yes, but much like the Joestar family there is just something about this Stand User that is just easy on the eyes. Starting off as a street-wise thug who nearly destroyed Jonathan Joestar’s life, he made the transition to vampire, and has since made it his mission to destroy the descendants of his nemesis. His charisma is through the roof - Oh, and when you lock eyes time might just stand still.

#9: Shogo Makishima
“Psycho-Pass” (2012-14)

Good looking and a fond of famous literature? Sounds like quite the catch. Shame he’s a sadistic killer who loves the worst aspects of humanity. Able to easily convert others to his cause with his persuasive nature, Makishima is a villain whose goals are justified but his methods are cruel. Even though he’s a sicko who thrives on seeing others in pain, when he busts out the charm, he has everyone wrapped around his finger.

#8: Ferid Bathory
“Seraph of the End” (2015)

What is it about sexy vampires in anime? When they’re done right they manage to sizzle on screen, whether they're a tragic hero or, in the case of Ferid, a sadistic bloodsucker who enjoys humiliating and killing human children. He may seem like the perfect vampiric gentleman on first glance, but just beneath the surface there’s a selfish beast who thrives on causing mischief. Preferring to sink his fangs into those he deems as beautiful, it’s not hard to see why he’s so proficient at seduction.

#7: Grimmjow Jaegerjaques
“Bleach” (2004-12)

He may bend the knee to Aizen as one of the Espada, but this Arrancar lives by his own set of principles. Over the course of the series we see this vicious animal go toe to toe with our favorite Substitute Shinigami, building up a fierce rivalry that was just as investing as the fact that Grimmjowseems to prefer to go into battle bare-chested. Even his strange feline Ressureccion isn’t half bad.

#6: Schneizel el Britannia
“Code Geass” (2006-08)

Oh Lelouch, why is your family so power-hungry yet so alluring? While he would happily sacrifice troops and not hesitate to destroy any resistance in his path, this member of the royal family certainly has more compassion than his forebears. With a mind equally as cunning as Lelouch’s and with ambitions of his own, he has still earned the respect of his followers and earned his place as Prime Minister of the Holy Britannian Empire. He may well be a cold-blooded strategist but thank goodness he managed to make it to the end of the series.

#5: Light Yagami
“Death Note” (2006-07)

The God of the New World may not be a benevolent one, but for good or for ill he sure managed to convert us. His intellect and manipulative nature ensured that he was but a step away from achieving his goal, but alas whatever decent intentions he may have had were lost when he took his delusions of grandeur too far. Though he fell at the final hurdle, we have to admit we see why Misa fell for him.

#4: Shinsuke Takasugi
“Gintama” (2006-16)

While Gin will always be out favorite goofball of a samurai, his former friend turned bitter enemy is nothing short of dreamy. Takasugi and Gin both fought together against the invasion of the Amanto but ended up going their separate ways, with the one eyed swordsman eventually returning on a mission of his own; to destroy the entirety of the rotten post-war world. A master of assassination with incredible sword skills, this brutal rebel may be eager to spill blood, but damn does he look good while doing it.

#3: Gilgamesh
“Fate” series (2006-15)

As an Archer class servant, he proved himself to be a ruthless and mischievous individual who valued himself over all others, with an ego the size of Greece. Despite this, he remains something of a trickster throughout Fate/Zero. Leading on to Unlimited Blade Works he became more of a bad boy whose total confidence in his overpowering Noble Phantasm made him a true force of nature - worthy of his title as a demigod and hero of legend. While he ultimately gets his comeuppance, it’s fair to say he made his mark in the Holy Grail War.

#2: Itachi Uchiha
“Naruto” series (2002-)

While deep down he remained a good-hearted man who was willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of his little brother, Itachi openly threw himself into the role of a murderer. As part of the Akatsuki, this master of the Sharingan cast the ultimate illusion in convincing everyone he was evil for killing his entire clan. Alas, no amount of bloodletting or villainous acts could ever hide the fact that Itachi remains quite the looker. Whether he’s an unsung hero or a sympathetic antagonist, we fall under his spell every time.

Before we reveal out number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

“Hunter x Hunter” (2011-14)

Shuu Tsukiyama
“Tokyo Ghoul” (2014-15)

Claude Faustus
“Black Butler” (2008-10)

#1: Sesshomaru
“Inuyasha” (2000-10)

He may have blood relations to our protagonist, but this fully-fledged demon could not be further from Inuyasha. Having absolute confidence his abilities, Sesshomaru once looked down on the likes of half-demons, humans, and any monster that sought to increase their strength with the Shikon Jewel. Of course while he does find himself having a change of heart when Rin enters his life, that doesn’t mean that this exceptionally striking man hasn’t worn the title of a villain proudly.
