The 10 weakest anime villains are still cool

Not every villain in anime does the same thing. Some of them are quick little bosses who pose so minor threats to heroes that the fan base quickly forgets them, while others take center stage as the main villain to beat. Sadly, fans sometimes forget about the bad guys who fall in the middle of the bad guys spectrum.

These villains from the anime have fading power compared to both the main villains and heroes alike, but they still leave enough plot impact to send chills down the heroes’ spines when they’re remembered.

Mob Psycho 100

in Mob Psycho 100In this case, protagonist Shigeo Kageyama learns about the dangerous organization Claw and infiltrates the secret lair of the Seventh Division to rescue his brother from their clutches. Viewers are given a glimpse of the leader, Ishiguro, who wears an ominous combination of a black cloak and a black gas mask. At this point, the high-pitched villain was sure to be an enemy to be remembered.

Unfortunately, under the mask was a renegade old man. Ishiguro certainly still had formidable and fearsome telekinesis and would have succeeded in world domination had it not been for his lack of dexterity and balanced temperament.

As a notorious mercenary, fans expected more of Jinyu’s power upon their arrival. Regardless of their clearly awkward and rehearsed introduction, they’ve become known as a joker within the fanbase, though that doesn’t take away their influence on the heroes. They managed to defeat Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin, but they were no match for Goku.

8/10 Possess Hidan’s jutsu to make him one of the scariest Akatsuki

Naruto Shippuden

in Naruto ShippudenThe heroes face the Akatsuki duo after another. Hidan is widely considered the weakest among the group, and the reason for his demise was he and his partner. While his partner, Kakuzu, remained calm and gathered in battle, Hidan was lost in his clashes with other ninjas, which was his ultimate weak point.

Sure, the zombie duo can’t be killed easily, and Hidan in particular has the upper hand as an immortal man, but relying on his inability to kill is why he gives his opponent plenty of slots to hold him back somewhat. With his techniques that could kill instantly, Hidan had what to make of one of the most powerful villains, but failed due to his oversized ego.

7/10 Kabuto has always been stuck in Orochimaru’s shadow


As Orochimaru’s right-hand man, Kabuto has always been at the center of the action. However, his skill was more than that in manipulation, and of course anything related to medical ninjutsu. As a fighter, Kabuto is very weak, and needs to rely on deceptive tactics in order to fight stronger opponents, as he did with Tsunade in Season 5 of Naruto.

Despite Kabuto’s lack of power in battle, he is still considered one of the most influential villains, especially towards the end of World War II. Naruto. He single-handedly turned the tide of the war in favor of Madara Uchiha while maintaining the upper hand against him thanks to a little influence. Had it not been for the joint efforts of Sasuke and Itachi, Kabuto could have grown even more into the most powerful villain in the series.

The cursed spirit Jogo announces that he can easily defeat him and attacks him himself in the dead of night. Although Jogo’s abilities are impressive, Gojo is far beyond the reach of any opponent.

Despite Jogo’s crushing loss to Gojo and thus becoming the joke of the group of villains, Jogo still has the potential to become an even greater threat to the heroes. Moving forward, if he became strong and wise enough, like his comrade Hanami, he might even grow stronger in battle.
