You’ve been warned!

1. Light Yagami (Death Note)

Clever, narcissistic, and a serious God complex. Light came into possession of the Death Note, and he believes that he is the only one that can judge humanity and bring about a new age. He started out with good intentions, but everything went south quickly.

2. Haruko Haruhara (FLCL)

Haruko is the poster child for energetic, crazy pink haired anime girls. While Haruko is a fun character, we can’t overlook the fact she is extremely selfish and manipulative. She was willing to sacrifice the Earth and Naoto so she could absorb the Atmosk.

3. Geist (MD Geist)

Geist is an uncontrollable super soldier who was cryogenically frozen and locked away in a satellite. When the satellite crashes on a war ravaged planet, the citizens turn to him to be their hero. However, Geist would rather help escalate the war so his blood thirst can be satisfied.

4. Togame (Katanagatari)

While Togame does have a cheery personality and is in love with Shichika, she is willing to sacrifice everyone around her just so she can get revenge. Everything Togame did was a means to achieve her goal.

5. Yukiteru Amano (Mirai Nikki)

We all know how psychotic Yuno Gasai is, but over the course of Mirai Nikki, Yuki gets just as twisted. Originally, Yuki wanted to find a way to end the game peacefully, but that changed after his parent’s died and Yuno planted an idea in his head. Yuki would then rely on manipulation, backstabbing, killing, and destruction to achieve his goals.

6. Yoshitaka Nakabayashi (He Is My Master)

An irredeemable pervert. Yoshitaka inherited his dead parent’s fortunes and fired all of the old servants only to hire three girls that he forces to work while wearing fetish uniforms.

7. Tanaka Punie (Dai Mahou Touge)

“Lyrical Tokarev, Kill Them All!” On the surface, Tanaka is cute and innocent magical girl that is sent to Japan so she can prove her worthiness of being a queen. However, she is really a ruthless witch that specializes in using brutal submissions techniques to kill people, vegetables, and unicorns.

8. The Count of Monte Cristo (Gankutsuou)

A mysterious nobleman, The Count has planned to take revenge against those that have wronged him and falsely imprisoned him. He gains his means by making a deal with the demon Gankutsuou, but over the course of the series, we find the The Count to be even more ruthless than the people that have wronged him.

9. Alucard (Hellsing)

A self-described monster, Alucard is ruthless and terrifying. He’s only a part of the Hellsing organization because he truly enjoys killing people.
