Who has the worst anime laugh?

One Piece is probably the most notorious show when it comes to annoying anime laughs - which is why it appears three times on this list. But while the Shololololos and Kishishishis of this shonen giant are definitely worth noting, there are other shows with characters whose laughs make you wish you had some industrial strength earplugs. Livebearer from Toriko not only sounds horrendous, but he also laughs while drooling and rotating his rootlike tongue. Cell from Dragon Ball Z laughs like an unenthusiastic vampire while barely moving his mouth. 

Prepare to get annoyed, and vote up the videos you hated the most.

    Akira Midousuji - 'Yowamushi Pedal'

    Video: YouTube

    Sounds like: Pfffft! Gross!

    Akira Midousuji's laugh might sound like a criminal mastermind and/or someone who has been smoking something he found under the couch, but he's actually a high school freshman who uses bizarre body language to manipulate people's emotions so that they're less likely to defeat him in a bike race. His laugh isn't just annoying - it's actually kind of freaky.

    Beatrice - 'Umineko: When They Cry'

    Video: YouTube

    Sounds like: REHEHEHEHEHE! Nyehehehe.

    There are plenty of maniacal laughs in the When They Cry universe, but the one that really qualifies as annoying belongs to Beatrice of Umineko. She's a sadistic, manipulative witch who loves hurting people, but she looks like a refined lady. Her laugh is appropriate for neither - instead, it's a discordant cackle that changes in pitch every millisecond. It sounds, as Ronove says, inelegant.

    Livebearer - 'Toriko'

    Video: YouTube

    Sounds like: Beh... heee heeee heeee. Ohohoho.

    The first terrible thing about Livebearer's laugh is having to look at the underside of his tongue - that thing looks like a plant that grows in the depths of hell. The second terrible thing is the ringlets of drool cascading out of his mouth as he snickers to himself about eating people's memories. Basically, this nasty casino owner is like a Pokémon who knows Dream Eater, but way less cute, and with a way worse laugh.

    Akane Isshiki - 'Vividred Operation'

    Video: YouTube

    Sounds like: Hahahahaha. Heeheehee.

    Akane is not only laughing like some kind of weird high-pitched robot, but she also isn't even moving her mouth. No wonder her buddy looks so unsettled. Maybe she had to sacrifice her ability to laugh like a normal person in order to be able to wield the magic of her palette suit?
