Day 9- Best Anime Villian

WARNING SPOILERS!

This post was a struggle. I love villains in all types of media. I think if an anime can create a good, solid villain then they are onto a winner with me. I often find myself loving the villains more than the heroes in shows because the villainous characters are so well executed that it’s often impossible not to love them.

After pondering on my favourites I decided to choose Pride from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Look at this sweet, precious child who will tear you to pieces.

As someone who seems to be a big fan of characters based around the seven deadly sins it’s no surprise that I love characters like Pride. I loved Pride throughout the entire series of Brotherhood. I think the whole evil little boy look just appealed to me because there is something so horrific about evil children. Now, I know Pride is just within a container which happens to look like a young boys body and he passes off as Selim Bradly the Fuhrer son, but the whole look of him to me is awesome. I love how such evil can be contained within such a small body. I find him a truly fascinating character and as despicably evil as Pride is I cannot help but love him as a villain. His ability to use and manipulate shadows is a really interesting power and I love how the shadows contain evil red eyes and toothy smiles. It makes such an interesting touch to his character design and this overbearing element of him contrasts well with his young body.
