Have you ever wondered which anime villain is the most like you? If you're a longtime anime fan, chances are you've seen a little bit of yourself in even the baddest of bad guys. After all, the best anime villains are complex people with positive and negative traits - just like the star signs. Your astrological alignment is a great way to help determine which anime villain you vibe with the most. Checking out these anime villains' zodiac alignments will not only help you learn more about these dastardly characters - it might also shed a little light on your own dark side. 

  • Leo (July 23 - August 22): Tomura Shigaraki

    Tomura Shigaraki of My Hero Academia may not be your classic Leo - the flashy, dramatic nature of the fire sign is more commonly associated with shonen heroes. But Shigaraki has his own way of expressing the Leo vibe. Some Leos are less warmhearted than the lionine sign implies, and instead tend toward haughty elitism. Shigaraki does what he wants, when he wants, even if that means sabotaging his own goals. His evil plans tend to be sloppy and incoherent, and he gets aggressive and annoyed with little provocation, making him the poster child for the worst possible expression of Leo traits.

    There is some good news, though - Leos tend to be independent thinkers who don't care what others think of them. While in Shigaraki's case the results aren't great, those traits can be wonderful in the right hands.

  • Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Envy

    Those born under the Earth sign Virgo have many positive qualities, including attention to detail, practicality, and resourcefulness. Envy of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood has all those traits, but as their name suggests, their personality is dominated by feelings of envy, particularly toward humans who are able to live fuller, richer lives than Envy can as a homunculus.

    Virgos may react to this painful emotion by acting superior to those whose lives they covet, and criticizing them harshly - which is exactly what Envy does until they're forced to analyze their true feelings.

    The star sign Libra is represented by the Scales, the symbol of justice and fairness. Light Yagami of Death Note cares deeply about justice, though his sense of what qualifies as justice is about as warped as they come. Light strives to become a godlike being who decides who lives - and who dies - based on a combination of their criminal history and his own whims.

    To achieve his lofty but horrible goal, he uses another one of his darker Libra traits - powerful people skills that help him manipulate his followers, and a delusional belief in his own righteousness.

  • Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Mao

    Mao of Code Geass leads a challenging life. He is unable to switch off his mind reading ability, and he's constantly bombarded with the thoughts of everyone within 500 feet. The sheer sensory overload takes a huge toll on his mental health, and encourages the obsessive, possessive behavior that links him to the sign of Scorpio.

    Scorpios tend to fixate on a single thing or person, and can be frighteningly avaricious when it comes to their obsession. Mao wants C.C., his former lover, to pay exclusive attention to him - and though his magnetic Scorpio energy makes him hard to resist, C.C. has other plans.
