Day Question 9: Your Favorite Anime Villains

2. Dio Brando - JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (1993 and 2012)

Dio Brando is in a class of villainy all his own. Where many other villains have sympathetic back stories, some sort of Freudian excuse for their actions, are working for a larger goal of some sort, or just want everything to die, Dio has none of that. His only excuse is his own sense of self importance. Everything that he does, he does because he can, and he finds it amusing. And what he does isn’t pretty. He plays mind games, and breaks people down psychologically before destroying them totally. There are no lows that he won’t stoop to in his path, are there’s nobody that he considers innocent. In this way, Dio is one of the most ruthless villains in existence, and I love to hate him for that.
