    Clementine - 'Overlord'

    Clementine is truly a sadistic, self-serving villain with no redeemable qualities. She relished in torturing others, and killed her victims as slowly and painfully as possible. After she kills the Swords of Darkness, Ainz gets his revenge and crushes her to death. Although it was a brutal way to die, Clementine got a taste of her own medicine.

  • Zorin Blitz - 'Hellsing'

    Zorin is a vampire from Hellsing who uses her illusions and a scythe to slay her targets. That said, it was the reckless use of those powers that resulted in her satisfying end.

    Seras was one of Zorin’s victims who was miraculously able to make it out alive after awakening her vampire powers. When she showed up to face Zorin in an intense fight, Kamina bashed Zorin’s face against a wall until there was nothing left.

    Frieza - 'Dragon Ball Z'

    Frieza is one of the most long-standing villains of the DBZ universe. Both Vegeta and Krillin have perished as a result of their extended rivalry with the alien and he survives for so long, in fact, that he is slain by Future Trunks!

    The most satisfying part is not only his demise at the hands of Vegeta’s son but how easily the young Saiyan is able to do it.

    Neferpitou - 'Hunter x Hunter'

    Pretty much all the villains in Hunter x Hunter have committed awful, unforgivable crimes. But if there's one villain that fans hate the most, it's Neferpitou. From probing Pokkle's brain while he's still alive to killing Kite and making his corpse into a puppet, it's safe to say that Neferpitou had it coming. This death is made even more satisfying since it marks the first time viewers see Gon so angry and vengeful.
