From time to time it’s nice to see the anime villains win because
let’s face it, some of there theories make a lot of sense. Of course,
I’m not talking about the genocidal, racist or sexist villains. Just the
ones that want to make the world a better place and actually have
a legitimate plan to do it. I also kind of highly favor all zombie
apocalypse scenarios because how awesome would that be. And
for all, you naysayers just think about all the debt that would be
abolish and the rebuking of 9 to 5 jobs.
I mean sure you may have to give up a few modern amenities if
anime villains take over the world like freedom lol, but maybe you
didn’t need those amenities in the first place lol. Don’t worry with
time you will adapt. So anyways let’s go ahead and pay some
homage to the anime villains. Because they need love too, right? In
today’s post, we are going to countdown the top 10 anime villains
to cosplay as at your next convention. So, without further ado, let’s
All For One is the main villain from my hero academia and is
extremely powerful. He poses the Quirk (Special Power) all for one
which allows him to steal, use and transfer quirks between
individuals. He was the only man capable of injuring the hero All
Might to the point where he could only maintain his hero form for
a few minutes. All for one has invested all of his efforts into
Tomura Shigaraki. He has basically been a mentor for him and
sort of a role model. Since he is helping children, he cant be all bad
King Bradley stems from the full metal alchemist series. This guy is
a homunculus and arguably the most powerful of the lot. He has
only one goal and that’s to make fathers wish come true. Aka
completion of a philosophers stone. Throughout most of the series,
King Bradley really didn’t bother anyone. He made decisions from
his platform and appeared to be a great guy. But man o man did
that change in episode 56 “The return of the Fuhrer”. But long story
short I don’t think he was that bad. He just had twisted dreams and
means of achieving them. I say long live the king, most of
humanity is corrupt anyways.
Ok, I can confidently say Hisoka wasn’t a complete bad guy. He
helped Gon and Killua grow on multiple occasions. He also made
sure they didn’t get slaughtered in a friendly dodge ball game
along with a martial arts competition. Does that sound like the
actions of a bad guy? It doesn’t to me! Now if we are talking about
his goals and desires…. Well, let’s just say they’re a bit twisted. He
technically wants to make people stronger to kill them but hey at
least he gives them a fighting chance right? That’s more than most
characters in anime get.
Don Quixote was a family man and Luffy came in and destroyed
this mans precious family. If you really think about it, who is the
villain here? He was also forced to live a life that he had not
chosen. All he knew was a life of luxury and his father gave all of
that up to live with commoners. Let’s just say Don Quixote did not
adjust so well. So once again, him becoming a villain was kind of
instigated by his past life and family’s actions. I see this not as a
villain, but a man that needs help.
Dio Brando is another villain that is nothing more than a product
of his environment. Dio Brando is the product of an abusive
alcoholic father and we all know how that ends. I think this may
have led to him somehow desiring wealth and power. He also had a
role model that completely lacked morality so this may be another
reason why he has no compassion. But regardless Dio was one of
the best characters in multiple bizarre adventure storylines.
Grimmjow was one of the most powerful villains in the entire
bleach universe and was ranked 6 out of the Arrancar. Now I can’t
vouch for this character and just have to admit he is a violent
sadistic mofo. He battles with Ichigo multiple times and proves his
ability multiple times over but of course, ultimately loses to Ichigo.
I have seen this cosplay at several events but I haven’t seen his
panther form cosplayed. That would be a site to behold.
Kuroro Lucilfer is the leader of the phantom troop in Hunter x
Hunter. So, like many other villians, Kuroro only seems to care
about his fellow troop members. He is always accompanied by at
least two of them and is somehow able to keep this group of
volatile members together. Unfortunately, that’s as far as his
passion goes. He has committed numerous atrocities such as
genocide of the entire Kurta clan excluding Kurapika. But, he’s still
an awesome villain so we are going to cosplay as him regardless.
I hereby request that we change Zabuza Momochi status from
villain to stepfather. This guy took someone else’s child under his
wing and fostered all of his abilities to the point that Naruto and
Sasuke had to team up to take him down. With regards to his
slaying of his fellow classmates. Well, he just killed them before
they had the chance to kill him.
It sounds equal to me. And technically, this is what the higher ups
wanted anyways so he was actually only doing what was required
of him. The way I see it, he’s a loving stepfather and a great soldier
capable of following orders. My kind of hero lol.
Gilgamesh has a long story with the fate stay series. Some people
view him as good, while others see him as neutral or evil. I really
think it all depends on which series you are watching and how you
define certain acts. For example in fate zero he kills rider. But you
will only see this act as evil if you liked rider.
When you take into consideration the fact that this is the holy grail
wars and people are meant to die, he’s only doing what everyone
else has done or is trying to do. So I personally view him as neutral.
He has done some other questionable acts when presented with
the chance of doing good so I can’t for certain say he’s good so yea
Madara Uchiha as many of you know is an absolute beast, but I
definitely did not consider him a villain. He first off was born
during a period of war so I would say he is a consequence of his
environment. Second, all he wanted was for everyone to live in a
world of peace. Even if that peace is within a dream. I’m sure lots
of us have had dreams we wish we did not wake up from and
Madara was just trying to make this dream possible for everyone.
A world free of pain, war, and disease. I mean yea your life force
was sucked out in the process but hey, nothing in life is free and
sometimes you have to give to receive. Thanks so much for
checking out my cosplay villains post. I hope it gave you some ideas
as to who you can cosplay next and created a different view on
some of the characters. If you enjoyed this post feel free to leave a
