    Re: Best Villain

    In mangas, we have often "bad" characters becoming "good". But more rarely "good" characters becoming "bad" and that's maybe the reason why I hate so much Griffith ... & the reason why he is the best villain.

    Among the others, I couldn't care less about Father. We almost never see him during the whole manga.

    Orochimaru was a great villain but ... in the end ... he was just a puppy toyed around. Thank you itachi & thank you sasuke ...

    I can perfectly understand why others would vote for Earl (atypical ... & completely nuts) & Johann (that's evil for you ...).

    ^ i won't exactly call johann 'evil'...he is just 'inhuman', which may be god or devil (or rather both).

    Re: Best Villain

    orochimaru without a doubt for me. he was just the embodiment of evil. no regard for anyone other than himself. only wanted to further his life by using others. no remorse with his killings. abducting mass amounts of people to use as test subjects. and development of some of the most forbidden jutsu? he is a villian of all villians.

    Re: Best Villain

    I voted for Orochimaru in Naruto.

    He's a great villain: unique, respectable, and sympathetic type of character. I don't see him as "evil" per se, but he's definately a villain.

    Unfortunately, I don't know (Monster: Johann Liebert) and (D. Gray Man: The Millennium Earl), so I had to omit these in my consideration.

    My vote goes to Griffith/Berserk in the end. Griffith has more layers than villains like Orochimaru imo, who's path of becoming evil was simpler. And each of these layers are interesting, he was a cool character before turning deeply evil already.

    I voted Johann for similar reasons. He is very complex character with lot of depth in his character and how he became what he is. Johan is one of the main reasons why Monster is such a phenomenal manga. The most frightening monsters don't have hairy bodies, several arms or horns. Once you get to understand this while reading about Johann, the corny name of the series suddenly makes sense. Johann is just creepy. His rational coldness is something special. And the biggest "monsters" lie in his past.

    Father all the way. Orochimaru is a close second, with his pure evilness. Johann is a real close third. Man, this was a hard one.

    But what Father did in the flashbacks takes the cake.

    Re: Best Villain

    My choice goes to Orochimaru.

    This guy is almost the embodiment of evilness. I mean every little actions he took was in the detriment of someone else. He couldn't care less of others, and act according to his reasons, and his reasons only.

    1.For me, what defines a great villain is by the quantity and quality of problems this villain can give to the main characters. And he's "kidnapping" of Sasuke was the biggest (and still) problems and failure Naruto had to face throughout the whole story.

    2. Its not even debatable and I think that everyone who read Naruto (or at least part 1) know how monstruous Orochimaru's strength is. This guy is really danm powerful and could take on against any top ninja in this story, even now. And even his jutsus and tactics were plain evil. The way he fought, the way he used the snakes to help him during the fights are just plain evil and kind of gory, making me more willing to vote for him.

    His philosophy, actions, strength and way of fighting, all put together make Orochimaru, imo, the best choice in this section.

    Re: Best Villain

    I'm gonna ignore Part II Orochimaru for my own convenience and focus on Part I Orochimaru. \o


    Orochimaru truly was a great villain. His motivation wasn't typical; he didn't care about ruling the world or being famous or whatever. He wanted to be the ultimate ninja and learn all ninjutsu in the world and was willing to sacrifice any life to get it. He experimented on people and played with their lives without even having a shred of remorse. What he did, why he did, it was just because he liked seeing things happened and thought life was boring at standstill.

    The man also planned ahead and was brilliant! Even Tobi was shocked at the information Orochimaru had! He was so adept at mindfucking people like Sarutobi when he made Saru fight his old mentors. Part I Orochimaru was truly an epic villain.

    Father was pretty good, but his motivation was power. He was dull to me.

    Part 2 Orochimaru wasn't very different at all...even if the story got shifted and focused on Uchihas and in the end he was trolled twice, that shouldn't affect his character as a whole...his attitude remained the same, his goals were the same...
    Another thing is that Part 2 has other villains in focus and Orochimaru needed to be eliminated...at least that's how I see it

    just to add a comment of my own, though hopefully this is accurate, as I don't know Naruto that well:

    (feel free to correct me, if I got this wrong. I don't mind being spoiled, as I already am quite a bit spoiled anyways, hehe, from my own curiosity and impatience, lol)

    its also my oppinion. for me he is the ultimate villain , when i sarted seeing naruto he was for me the biggest threat i couldnt even dream of someone worst than him and his actions changed the hole history. he is the one that made sasuke to go and by that he is causing Naruto all this trouble and all this worries

    Re: Best Villain

    My vote this time was between Father from FMA and Griffith from Berserk, but in the end I decided to vote for Griffith. Father was a despicable being and what he did was horrible; but what he did, and I’m not justifying his actions, he did it to people that weren’t his friends and that he didn’t truly care about. On the other hand, Griffith did something as terrible (and maybe even more) as what Father did but he did it to his own friends, to people that cared deeply about him and that at some point he really cared about them as well. He betrayed his own family in a way, because that is what The Band of the Hawk was to him in my opinion. So that is why I’m voting for Griffith in this award category.
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!
