14 Anime Villains Who Were Actually Right All Along

List RulesVote up the anime villains who actually make some pretty good points.

Just because a character is technically a villain doesn't mean everything they do is terrible.

There are plenty of anime villains who were right, even though their actions were arguably evil. Some - like Sasuke Uchiha of Naruto and Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - were victims of state-sanctioned horrors seeking justified revenge. Shougo Makishima of Psycho-Pass, meanwhile, tried to take down a corrupt government to potentially save thousands of lives, but inadvertently got his hands dirty in the pursuit of justice.

Anime villains who are pure evil can be fun, but when an antagonist has relatable motivations, the story is always more nuanced.
