Femme fatales aren't exclusive to old Noir films - although they do appear in the anime Noir. These characters are wildly attractive women who use their sex appeal to manipulate their enemies.
Some femme fatale anime characters, like the legendary Fujiko Mine of Lupin III, are simply looking to steal from their targets, but others like Rize Kamishiro of Tokyo Ghoul, have more sinister and violent goals. They're sexy and therefore fun to look at, but the best thing about these characters is how complicated they often are. Many of them have complex reasons for turning toward less than savory acts, and their backstories are just as compelling as their looks, if not more so.
