When I read this question, I knew exactly who to mention. Now, I’ll apologize first, this will be a character from a previously mentioned anime, but it’s okay because this guy that I’m thinking of is the PERFECT person.
He is a very misunderstood character, but due to his circumstances, I believe that he is one of the most evil villains ever.
So without further adieu…
The Best Anime Villain is…
Zeref from Fairy Tail!
Okay, so my explanation for this will contain spoilers, so if you don’t want to be spoiled don’t read the next part until you see another gif.
In Fairy Tail, Zeref is the main antagonist for the characters. He was cursed with Ankhseram Black Magic when he was a child due to him indulging himself in matters that went beyond what a human should have done. This curse makes him kill anything nearby, but only the things he cares about. The more he loves, the more he kills.
Zeref has been wandering around for hundreds of years now and he has a deep desire to die because he doesn’t want to live with this curse anymore. He created demons to kill him, but none have been successful. However, due to a turning point of events, Zeref stopped caring about his desire to die and focused his attention on his goal of creating a new world. In order words, Zeref wants to wipe off everyone on earth and create a new race.
He is one of Fairy Tail’s greatest enemies because of this reason, as he has caused them much trouble, not to mentioned caused them to disappear for 7 years and almost die.
But truth to be told, I believe he is one of the most misunderstood characters out there. Due to his curse, he has no choice but to kill and it really is unfortunate because he can never be near anyone and never find love.
He fell in love once with the First Master of Fairy Tail Mavis Vermillion, but she had died as soon as they kissed. And you can’t help but feel sorry for him because he’s been through so much, even though he caused so much trouble for everyone.
I personally sympathize with him and hope that he doesn’t die in the end
Zeref thinks that by killing off the human race, he is justified because it will rid the rejection that he feels from the world. However, in the viewpoint of the world, that couldn’t be more wrong.
That what makes someone truly evil. When they think something bad is something good. Because they are acting on a good intention, but in a bad action.
What do you think? Do you agree with Zeref as the best villain? Who is your favourite villain?
