Updated November 14, 2018 3.2k votes 533 voters 29.4k views

A lot of characters in anime are completely consumed by their thirst for vengeance. This overpowering need to seek revenge ends up being the driving force behind everything they do, even if they lead others to think that they have ulterior motives. These anime characters want nothing more than to take their full revenge on those who have wronged them, in the grand tradition of sick and twisted anime characters

Of course, vengeful anime characters often suffer from tragic back-stories that involve a lot of heartbreak. These hardships are all emotionally traumatic to the point where it totally takes over the lives of the victims. These events all pave the path of vengeance for these anime characters who want revenge to stride down in full force.
