A man who fought, lived, died, and was reborn for the sake of his dream. A dream of a kingdom of his own. He'll do what he will to achieve his Destiny but also being remorseful for the bodies he has left behind. Be they friends, loved ones, or his enemies. Griffith is my all-time favorite villain in Manga for how well written he is from the start of Berserk to its unfortunate end. Thank You Kintaro Miura for making such an amazing villain for your manga.
He has no desire to rule, he has no desire to stand out. He wants nothing more and nothing less than a quiet and simple life. Despite being a serial killer and how dangerous he is towards his action of killing women he likes in Morioh. Hirohiko Araki probably made one of the best written villains in his series. Sure he isn't as overpowered as the pillar men or DIO but he made an antagonist that's believably human.
While Cell was originally created to take down Goku and become the perfect being Cell much like his transformations begins to evolve beyond what was his original goals. He wants more than just being the "perfect" being and he wants to see if the Z Fighters can prove him wrong by fighting him in his tournament.
"This is how I'll always remember you. Surround by winter, forever young, forever beautiful. Rest my love, the monster who took you from me will soon learn that revenge is a dish, best served cold. It would move me to tears had I any tears left to shed."
Still my all time favorite episode of this show. Heart of Ice brought an old campy villain like Mr.Freeze and has transformed him into a Shakespearian villain. A man who tried to save his wife from a deadly illness only to have been taken away by the man he worked for. Now he can never touch anything warm for it would mean his death. Abandoned, alone, trapped as a prisoner in a world he can only see but never touch.
