Top 10 Anime Characters Who Got What They Deserved
You reap what you sow. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Anime Characters Who Got What They Deserved.
For this list, we’ll be looking at the heroes and villains in anime who ended up getting their just desserts. Whether comical or despicable, you can’t deny that the punishments here more than fit the crimes. Prepare for some heavy spoilers as well as some mature content down the line – some of these guys don’t end up in the prettiest of places.

#10: Jun Kiwatari

“Kakegurui” (2017)
You thought that this guy was just another uber-wealthy douchebag walking around like he’s the king of the world? Well he is, but he’s also one with a perverse personality, and who came way too close to living up to his violent promise of defiling Yumeko when she shot him down. Have no fear, as his downfall is borderline exquisite. After entering the Debt Exchange Game in order to plummet Yumeko into even greater financial ruin, Kiwatari ends up losing a lot more than pride when the rest of the female players turn against him and leaves with a debt of 310 million. Pure poetry.

#9: Nikaidou Kouhei

“Golden Kamuy” (2018)
Goes to show that there are consequences to going against the rules, even if you are member of a group of violent soldiers in search of untold riches. This member of the 7th Division, alongside Ogata thought they had the masterplan, betraying their captain and hunting a renegade soldier who was kicking it back with the Ainu, only for their mission to end in failure... Turns out all that murderous ambition wasn’t exactly in Nikaidou’s best interest, as not only did he get mauled by a bear, but also his crazy Captain comes along soon after to administer some discipline…by means of cutting off his ears.

#8: Saint Charlos

“One Piece” (1999-)
Giving us our first taste of the deplorability that is the Celestial Dragons, this pampered brat of a prince was considered to be untouchable, for any discrepancy towards him immediately prompts the World Government to send their strongest forces to exact painful retribution. As such, Charlos and his family are shown to be able to enslave others and commit murder without fear…at least until they messed with Captain Monkey D. Luffy. After gunning down Hachi, the leader of the Straw Hats hands out some much-deserved justice via a punch so strong it sends the Celestial Dragon flying through the wall. Oof.

#7: Ichijou

“Kaiji: Against All Rules” (2011)
While nothing more than a high-class pawn in the Chairman’s corrupt game, Ichijou’s inflated sense of self-worth and desire to crush Kaiji quickly earned him the spot for the sequel series’ main villain. In order to escape the forced labour camp and save his friends, Kaiji and Ichijou clashed through the medium of the ultimate rigged pachinko machine. Needless to say, they both went through the emotional ringer on this one. However, thanks to a hell of a lot of good fortune and Kaiji’s wiliness, he ends up hitting the big one. As a result of losing the chairman so much money, Ichijou is sent to the same labour camp…for 1050 years.

#6: All the Thieves

“Overlord III” (2018)
And this is precisely why you don’t go snooping around Bone Daddy’s house. While we have every sympathy for the members of Foresight that ended up meeting horrific ends at Ains’ hands, we can’t deny that they sort of brought it on themselves. They had every opportunity to NOT walk into literal hell, but greed compelled them, and just look at the results; two guys eaten alive by cockroaches, one poor bastard getting the kidney stone treatment, that other jerk that was killed via giant hamster…and of course the tragic fate of Arche. Nazarick is not a place of happy fun times…

#5: Kamoshida

“Persona 5: The Animation” (2018)
Look, we all know that the video game is superior in almost every way, including with the portrayal of its initial villain. That being said, we can’t get enough of watching this perverse volleyball teacher being reduced to tears. After successfully completing their first heist, the Phantom Thieves manage to change Kamoshida’s heart, forcing him to confront all the terrible things he did to his students, which lead to him breaking down in front of the whole school as he confesses his sins. It may not ease the pain of Shiho’s suicide attempt, but it’s a consolation prize all the same.

#4: Chibita and Iyami

“Mr Osomatsu” (2015-)
Somehow managing to end up in even more cringe-worthy situations than the Matsuno brothers, the hopeless pair of Chibita and Iyami will do anything and everything in order to get some green…even if it involves taking an experimental drug that turns them into attractive women. Given their NEET nature, the titular sextuplets immediately fall for the fake charm, leading to Chibita and Iyami extorting them every chance they get. The fun doesn’t last forever however, as the drug eventually wears off and exposes their scam. We think getting trapped in a cage with a tiger as a result is mightily appropriate.

#3: Oingo and Boingo

“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders” (2014-15)
By far the most laughable excuses for Stand Users we have ever seen, these lacklustre servants of Dio sought to kill off Jotaro and company by using Boingo’s power of prediction to set up increasingly elaborate traps. Naturally, they all come undone, mostly at the expense of the brothers’ general health. You’d think we’d get tired of fate literally working against these two but…nah, this shit is too funny, especially when they somehow managed to take what appeared to be an ironclad victory and still mess it up. But the real cherry on top is their comeuppance in the form of an angry mob – remember, don’t steal kids.

#2: Makoto Itou

“School Days” (2007)
Congratulations Makoto, for once you’re not at the top of our list. Don’t get us wrong, you’re still an asshole who cheated on a million different girls, using their bodies and leaving them as emotional cripples in the aftermath. Can you blame us for revelling in your bloody demise as one of your conquests cuts you to ribbons? Ahh, so cathartic. While his murder might have been a bit of an extreme reaction to the reveal of his adultery, we still can’t help but feel nothing but contempt for this little bastard.

#1: Sogou Nobuyuki

“Sword Art Online” (2012)
Whether he’s behind the screen or using the guise of Fairy King Oberon, this gamer’s core characteristics remain the same; he’s an arrogant crap-sack that really shouldn’t be within a mile of teenage girls. After completely destroying Oberon in-game and freeing Asuna of ALFHEIM Online, Kirito ends up getting into a real-world knife fight with the man behind the online sick mug. Unfortunately for Sogou, without the assistance of VR, he’s something of a pushover, which Kirito demonstrates in great detail when he smashes his face into a car. Sorry Todd, we still love you.
