Did he do anything wrong in Brotherhood?
Does this scare you?
Vincent was rather intimidating in Bebop
You don't see Spike getting owned everyday
Maybe not scary... but intimidating? Fuck yes. 88mm will fuck you up and everything you stand for.
He was pretty intimidating, he basically killed everyone with one single spell.
Couldn't decide between the two, but Younger Toguro and Sensui were both really fucking intimidating enemies.
Even if their transfromations ended up silly as fuck.
NO GAULON NO
Motherfucker was scary. Even when he got captured by Mithril he was scary, because he's been scientifically proven to ruin everyone's shit.
You know, if you going to bring up Jojo Villains. You should be talking about Kira.
Don't yell at me if you get spoiled, anime-onlys
This guy had to be a demon or something. He would not fucking die
This fucking guy.
I really want to see an alternate version of Battle Royale where
the coin flip comes up the other way and he fights the system instead of the other players.It probably lasts three chapters, max.
the only 'intimidating' character might have been doflamingo in his introduction in chapter 234 and his presence at marineford, in dressrosa he's literally useless and a stepping stone, and kaidou does not look intimidating
best sports anime villian or best sports anime villian?
Yeah there's no tension at all in one piece anymore. Last time I remember there being any sort of tense atmosphere was water 7 and enies lobby. Post-ts has been rather dull, there's no sense of danger anymore.
Just look at how he rekt Touko
before she cheated.
Whitebeard is more intimidating than any manga/anime character though.
No one is more alpha than Whitebeard. Not Kenshiro, not Guts, not Shinji, no one. He is the king of big dick gangsta
Whitebeard > your favorite character
The fact that you can't even name someone more intimidating than him is proof enough.
This piece of shit, even worse because he wasn't intimidating for the reason most villains are. He was no direct threat to the protag (IIRC), but to Eugenie, who couldn't (or didn't) tell Albert that he threatened to rape her, and she couldn't defend herself either. I'm obviously fuzzy on the details but I distinctly remember constantly fearing for Eugenie moreso than any other character.
Why is Spook world so creepy?
You definitely sound like a reasonable guy with knowledgeable opinions and not an insufferable teenage shithead throwing buzzwords
The raw designs of the Yonko are pretty intimidating overall aside from Shanks, but he is intimidating when he stands his ground as opposed to just his appearance.
yea, i can agree with this opinion
Tetsuo was pretty goddamn unsettling in pretty much every arc
He was handsome/scary
I'd say Roberto was more intimidating for the bulk of the story
pic related is another intimidating Urasawa villain
This crazy bitch, she even stole Azusa'a cherry, the absolute madman.
Mongolian genes anon, don't mess with them.
T H I S
Also, pic related
Love when the villain isn't above getting desperate then they in danger of losing
I bet there are better examples but I never kept up with Digimon.
That's not even the most intimidating it gets. Wait till it fully wakes up.
>play any shooter
>"Kiriyama has joined the match"
Me ass well anon, I love that crazy bird.
I wish he mattered more, his design was cool as fuck.
Yuujiro is/was fucking terrifying.
Musashi is more enigmatic/interesting/confusing than terrifying.
There's thick striations on a lot of them, and the others are typically underdeveloped or too small to be seen on that scale. The point of Yuujiro is that he has attained possession of every muscle in its perfect form.
Not really. I mean, he did kill Buccaneer and Fu, so that was a pretty big asshole move, but other than that, he just fought for what he thought was right.
His story is really sad if you think about it. Everything was given to him. He never accomplished anything. The only thing he is proud of is his wife, and in the end, not even his life was his.
>random Japanese teenager
>never had a fight in his life
>never held a gun before
>focuses on studying and socializing more than exercising
>somehow better than everyone at everything physical or combat related
They should have just made him a really shady kid who comes from a Yakuza family that everyone is afraid of. That at least would have made his skills believable.
But seriously, this guy would have been TERRIFYING in his own universe.
Get it right, motherfucker, or it's remedial K-On! for you.
Some people are just good at things. Some indian village girl a few years back fought off a bandit raid by killing one of them with an axe, stealing his gun and shooting the rest of them until they ran away.
One of the few villains who actually won, and not in some kind of metaphorical way either. He was in complete control of everything at all times.
>Yuujiro is/was fucking terrifying.
And still he was afraid of that old fart.
Chiri is pretty spooky at times.
This fucker was the definition of unkillable.
it shows up on google you faggot
These guys were kind of intimidating. Lilith spooked me a little too. At least the first time.
No youre partly wrong anon. Part of what made his story sad is the fact that he wasnt fighting for his own beliefs, what he thought right or conviction. He was just fighting on behalf of another.
I'm sorry but this thing made me feel intimidated.
It didn't speak, it just acted on the instinct to kill without reason (well, Dio of course).
It fucked up Igi big style and was just, well... intimidating.
Aside from its name
I love the shit out of Kaku's character. The scene where he was "transcending original Chinese martial arts" still makes me curious to this day of how high-level the strikes he was outputting must have been. Ultimately though, Kaku admitted he wasn't as strong as Yuujiro. I think at the end of series 3, only he and Baki understand how strong Yuujiro really is. Plus, he's not a villain.
I know hes not a villain but christ he is fucking scary sometimes.
You guys, you guys are my bros.
Roberto was creepy as all fuck but he had a certain skill set, he was a bodyguard/assassain and while his story was interesting whenever Johan appeared... shit got tense really fucking quickly and you had no idea who was going to die and who was going to live.
The scene with him in a dress was one of the most terrifying parts of the entire series just because we knew it would have consequences to the story... we just didn't know what the fuck those consequences would be.
It was scary because it was a normal anime for 6 fucking episodes of a 2 cour show.
And then this fucker apears after tearing up a drug adict from the inside and starts beheading cops.
How could anybody be afraid of this?
I hated him so much.
He killed my waifu ;_;But I gotta admit, he's a cool character, the perfect silent and deadly enforcer. Kind of Bobba Fett but done right.
But seriously, he was great. His partner too. So much build-up across so many volumes, and the backstories they were given, I can't believe it payed off this well.
I'm surprised it took this long for any Doro characters to get posted.
No, it was in the regular series. Surprised you don't remember it. Stuck in my mind. Some time after
Kohakura is forced to become a Shape when allying with Kano, there's a short instrumental interlude where it cuts to him being Shaped.
They were both scary but I felt dread whenever I thought about Senou taking up the sword again and I wasn't wrong.
Although Anderson was perhaps not a villain, he was certainly a terrifying character. He was the only character in the entire series to ever even surprise Alucard, and would have killed him had he remained human.
The fact that he was able to endure such extreme punishment - almost completely losing his left arm - to the extent that even the other vampires Alucard fought would have folded, and continue to keep butchering his way through the army was a major awe-factor on the first read-through/watch. Certainly scared me more than Alucard ever did.
I just wanted campy, over the top action. I didn't ask for this.
Also I guess not really a villain but fuck this thing.
Meh, Clear is a marysue-ish and boring villain but I don't dislike him because he brought the best of every surviving pair, even Gorm and Mir who allied with him and fucking Purio and Lupa.
I know people in Amestris are used to seeing weird things when alchemists are involved. Though don't you think the soldiers should have been a lot more freaked out about Fuhrer Bradley slicing up a tank fired cannon shells?
the build up narain really freaked me out
That's a lot longer than anything on that manga barring the "Z" age. Whoever Goku didn't trivialize via brute strength he ridiculed and made a mockery of in, like two pages or so. Taopaipai was one of the first things that was an actual threat to Goku.
You should see him in Heritage for the Future, his win poses have him landing on the fucking screen. Not to mention he's the fucking cheapest character I've ever seen in a fighting game.
Q-san surelly knows how to make a intimidating characther
I almost shitted my pants when Kai/Ai/Aikawa became that artificial devil
I wonder how many of the followers went to heaven as well. Yumie flat-out gave in to temptation when Walter showed up, and a lot of them showed over-eagerness to be violent; even making Anderson uncomfortable.
The Hanma bloodline appears to be at least partially Egyptian in origin; perhaps they're descendants of the sun god Ra.
Pierrot was way more intimidating.
That juxtaposition of such an oppressively frightening atmosphere with his looks & mannerisms was incredible.
I don't think I've really come across any creepy anime/manga characters. Only thing I can think of is in HxH when they first meet Pitou, they did such a good job of building up to it and they way Gon and Killua jump back when they get sense of Pitous nen was cool. Like scared animals acting on instinct. Otherwise Pitou is just a cute catboy/girl/thing.
Johan can look into your soul.
It's not that Johan is intimidating, it's that his presense in the story was intimidating. You felt Johan's hand at work in every facet and part of the story.
Like that guy stabbing himself in the head with a pen after seeing a photo of Johan with black hair. Johan was just fucking everywhere and he would fuck you up without even having to be there. And when he was there in the flesh, you knew shit was going to go down.
I completely forgot how scary Narain looked. On a relevant note, the Class 1 Exterminator Safeguard gave me nightmares.
I guess you could argue that his motivations ultimately make him heroic, but Gin ultimately functioned as a villain right up until the reveal. Don't forget he still did shit like slice Hiyori in half and stop Rukia on the way to her execution just to troll her about Renji appearing to be dead.
Nip has a generic word for facial hair instead of seperate words for moustache and beard. Whitemoustache sounds retarded while Whitebeard is a call to Blackbeard in and out of wan peace.
I'll say he was an antagonist instead, he was a fucking faggot as far as personality went (although I guess it was part of le ebin ruse), I just can't see the dude aas an actual villian the way Father or Sauron was.
Gin never did anything "villainous" beyond harass Rukia early on, which can easily be argued to just be part of the act. When he bifurcated Hiyori, he happened to do it ever-so-conveniently directly above the strongest healers in the manga.
On the other hand, Gin never did anything heroic. He didn't really seem to care most of Soul Society died; he didn't care if any of the Arrancar died. His sole motivation for his only heroic-seeming action in the manga (killing Aizen, obviously) was a story at which we only saw hints.
Gin was never a hero or a villain. He was completely detached from any goal beyond revenge for Rangiku. He was someone who just happened to be in the frame of a photograph of the apocalypse.
>yfw you remember what he did to Milosh
Shit that harrowing makes you appreciate life.
I guess that's what I meant yeah, he just sort of felt like, well, the protagonist of his own story but one that was only tangentially related to the main story of bleach.
Like he wasn't a filler character, but neither was he ever going to be important. Sort of like the Brown wizard from LotR I guess.
It's a shame this villain only got an anime original episode instead of his arc. He still managed to be just as intimidating in his filler, though.
I am of the opinion that he did kill Aizen, and the Hougyoku simply revived him. Aizen had no fucking clue what was going on and was constructing his own logic based on things he was seeing, as evidenced by him not knowing that Ichigo was the one breaking mountains later.
Of course, if Kubo publicly says that he didn't kill him, that makes his story an even greater tragedy.
I still want to believe he'll come back. ;_;
Since these elite Sternritter seem to be calling themselves gods, his God-Slaying Spear would certainly be warmly welcomed.
The Hougyoku is an asspull machine in orb form and Aizen is an asspull machine in character form. Put the two together and the only way you can possibly finish him off is by invoking the Power of the Main Character like Medaka Box keeps pounding into your head. The entire Aizen saga was 'this is a man who nobody but Ichigo can possibly put a scratch on (permanently)'.
Kamishini no Yari was weird as fuck. Didn't Bach say no shikai and bankai had different abilities? Why is it that his bankai has poison powers and turns to dust when extending and his Shikai doesn't? Why is it okay that he hurts his own Bankai when scientistman says later that you can't heal a Bankai?
Gin was full of exceptions.
they're muscles u nerd
if you want to see someone truly disgusting from baki, pic related
He's the most chaotic neutral character i know. But he's a softy deep down.
>The scene with him in a dress was one of the most terrifying parts of the entire series
This fucking page man, I got chills
I wasn't suggesting that Aizen was in some way really finished off by Gin, more that he was "biologically dead", and regenerated by the Hougyoku's powers. In essence, if he had possessed that amount of strength devoid of the Hougyoku and been hit by Gin, he would have died instantly, permanently. That's a massive testament to the power of his bankai.
The way Kamishini no Yari works is as follows:
Shikai: Shinsou - allows Gin to extend the blade however long it was stated.
Bankai: Kamishini no Yari - allows Gin to extend the blade (thereby being the same power as the shikai) a greater distance, with the added ability to briefly turn the extended blade's substance into dust; the dust being an extremely strong poison that disintegrates cellular matter and spreads rapidly. (It's in the same vein as Yamamoto's shikai being spewing fire and his bankai being [in part] physically becoming fire) Gin is able to allow small portions of that dust to remain within the target while he retracts the blade.
The reason the bankai is not permanently damaged resultant of him "breaking" the blade within his opponent is because that is not the bankai's real form. The bankai's "true form" is simply the normal-looking blade, possessing the capability to use the powers mentioned heretofore. The extended idea of the blade is as much a part of his bankai's "material" as the rocket is to Soi Fon's. That being said, when he retracted it from Aizen's body the base blade still had the chip missing from it, which Gin pointed out in order to explain his power. However, he also had not de-activated his bankai as he still needed its power to activate the poison: that was intended to be his bankai's weakness. He only gets as many (or as large) poison shots with his bankai as his base-sized sword can replicate on its "true form". Once he de-activates the bankai, the base blade regenerates itself because what was lost was the power of the bankai, not the blade itself.
I was honestly more confused as to why the scar popped out like that. I get that muscles can hide scars, but he didn't grow nearly enough in size to justify that, even in the Baki series.
Beyond that, I feel like Katsumi should have taken him to that stage, if only for the charge where Pickle takes his arm. The extreme pain and loss that Katsumi underwent certainly entitled him to at least see Pickle's final form.
The thing I love about Johan is although he plays the master manipulator behind the scenes, he isn't shy of getting dirty and doing what needs to be done to achieve whatever he wants.
He would let his henchmen kill people but he would also kill by his own hand if he felt like it. He's not just a pretty boy who only relies and uses his henchmen to do all the work for him.
Fucker was scary.
Even when they explained him, he was still terrifying; A living slapstick villain, always with another deadly toy in his coat pocket.
The scariest part was the end... Never saw a body did we?
And you still hear him grind his teeth.
Vincent was intimidating, but I think everything about Pierrot le Fou was done perfectly.
Take his introduction, for instance, when Spike walks down an alley and sees his massacre. No music, no extra baubles, and no dialogue, beyond an utterly malicious "Hello, boy."
Then cue Spike getting his ass handed to him, even after several gunshots and a gas tank explosion. He just floats his way through it, grinning and grinding his teeth.
He was an utterly implaccable, completely unsettling killing machine.
hes a muscle bag.
thats not intimidating at all, it's a normal thing.
it's "manly" at best, but not the least bit scary
One Piece chars can also not be taken seriously. That's why even chars like doflamingo, crocodile or similar who should be frightening are not.
I got legitimately scared when he appeared
and killed everyone
Chiri is mild by comparison, 'if she snaps' and she strikes from beyond the grave
The Wolf Brigade guys were pretty great just because of how relentless they were. The almost mechanical way they went about slaughtering everybody was great, in a horrific sort of way.
Though I wouldn't really consider them villains really, I was honestly rooting for them.
The bestest of the best.
>When he bifurcated Hiyori, he happened to do it ever-so-conveniently directly above the strongest healers in the manga.
Actually, none of the strong healers were there yet, but luckily Unohana got there not that long after. From Gin's point of view she was probably going to die though.
there's quite a few people who read Kingdom on /a/
Came here to post this. He was really fucking overpowered too.
I ain't even joking
This mofo made me shit my pants when I was a kid
I love to hate this guy, especially when he tries to fuck everyone over if he starts falling behind. I can't think of many other anime/manga characters that are on his level of autism.
>I'm sure that Hacchi is a strong healer too, or at least a staller.
He's mediocre at best. I forget when but he mentions at one point that he can't heal anywhere near as well as Orihime.
