List Rules Anime characters you hate based on their actions in the show, NOT how annoying they are (we have a separate list for that.)

We all have that one anime character that we hate, but which is yours? For this list we're ranking the most hateable anime characters of all time, and we want you to contribute your opinion by voting up the characters you can't stand. From shonen titles like One Piece to classics like Neon Genesis Evangelion, these are the anime characters that we just plain don't like. You'll find these hated and perverted anime characters in assassin anime, pirate anime, witch anime, ninja anime,  and of course gangster anime.

We already have a list for the most annoying anime characters, so try to vote on how much you hate these characters based on their actions, rather than how good of a character they are. For example, Shou Tucker in Fullmetal Alchemist is a great character, but his actions in the show make us hate him so much. Of course we've included some universally hated characters like Sakura and Excalibur, but that's what this list is really about.
