Opinion: Top 5 Shonen Jump Villains

5. Light Yagami (Death Note)
While Light Yagami is the main lead of Death Note, he is also a villain. He is charismatic, together with an intelligence that you can’t help but to see if he get’s away with his deeds. He ends up this low because of a certain event. If you have read the manga/watch the anime you know what I’m talking about

4. Zeref Dragneel (Fairy Tail)

Zeref is a perfect example of a tragic villain with massive potential. He would
have been much higher on the list (maybe even first place) if it wasn’t for some misses down the line.

3. Cell (Dragon Ball Z)

When I started to think about Dragon Ball villains, it came down to two
individuals. The first one was the recent fan favorite
called Zamasu from Dragon Ball Super, and Cell from Dragon Ball Z. The reason I
find Cell the more interesting is the horror aspect of him. A villain that can
suck other lifeforms dry to become stronger, like a mosquito sucking blood from animals. I remember when I first saw
a certain panel that introduced him in the manga. It was close to giving me nightmares. That scene is so horrific that it got removed
from the anime during prime time showing back in the day

2. Madara Uchiha (Naruto)
Also known as a Sauron of manga villains like Father in Full Metal Alchemist. A presence you could feel
through most of the entire run of Naruto. When he finally appeared, boy did he not disappoint. You know you are in for a treat when an army of ninjas has a problem
with this individual.

Honorable Mention – Frieza (Dragon Ball)

I keep writing stuff that makes me on the hate list for Dragon Ball fans,
aren’t I? But yes, I have never been the
biggest fan of what is the most iconic villain of the franchise. Don’t get me
wrong. I’m not a hater of Akiras coldhearted creation. But I prefer the mentioned
Zamazu and Cell. But due to his iconic status, I feel that he deserves an honorable

Sōsuke Aizen (Bleach)
There is a good reason why I put him so high in this.
He is Lex Luthor done right. He is someone that you never expected at first. He
is powerful in mind as well as a fist. I remember the first time I read
the arcs he was the most prominent in. I got chills down my spines just because of
his presence.
