In the large and expansive array of universes we find in anime, there are endless stories depicting heroes in struggle against dark forces and more often than not, we tend to root for these heroes. But, as well all know, heroes can’t always have all the attention. Sometimes, the villains are more interesting. Sometimes, the villains are cooler. Sometimes, at least ten times, the villains rock those body suits, or that armour or even their school uniform with such finesse that you can’t help but stare.
This is a list of the bad bads – the hottest, the sexiest, the most drop-dead gorgeous female anime villains we could think of. These are the villains we would follow at the drop of a hat. Evil has never looked this good. Top Ten Sexiest Female Anime Villains: So sexy, you just wish they could take over the world.
Beware spoilers ahead!
10. Alphard Alshua from Canaan
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: July 2009 – September 2009
Canaan follows the story of Ōsawa Maria, a Japanese photographer working in Shanghai. Strange things happen while she covers the events at a festival and due to her curious nature, Maria investigates, only to find herself caught in a battle between a group of masked men and a snow-haired young woman. It turns out that the woman is Maria’s childhood friend, Canaan. With Canaan’s help, Maria manages to escape the chaos of that night, but her curiosity has opened the door to something far greater, far more sinister and far more newsworthy than she could ever ask for.
Number 10 on our list is none other than leader of the Snake Terrorist Group, Alphard Alshua-sama from Canaan. With olive skin, piercing grey eyes and shoulder-length black hair, it’s no surprise that she’s one of sexiest villains out there. Alshua normally sports a black tube top, exposing her navel (one of her most attractive features), tight black pants and a dark trench coat, a fashion sense reminiscent of Kusanagi Motoko from the Ghost in the Shell franchise.
Alshua’s cold personality and absolute lack of remorse for any of her actions makes her one of the more dangerous villains on this list, but not only that, she is very intelligent. Keeping her body in tip-top shape is imperative for when she engages in combat, but it seems to be having an unprecedented effect: Alshua rocks her slender frame better than any other villain out there. She normally has a fairly cold, neutral expression, but she does smirk on occasion, a tiny change in her expression capable of making anyone experience the strangest form of ambivalence: we don’t know whether we’re scared or attracted, maybe a bit of both, but we don’t care – we enjoy looking at her every turn we get.
9. Black Lady from Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal
- Episodes: 26
- Aired: July 2014 – July 2015
Next on our list is Black Lady from the very popular Sailor Moon franchise, which follows the adventures of Tsukino Usagi, a 14-year-old girl who, upon being introduced to a talking cat, is granted special powers to fight evils from another realm. Black Lady is an evil grown up version of Usagi’s daughter, Chibiusa and tries very hard to kill all of Chibiusa’s friends.
Black Lady is a tall, slender and elegant woman who normally wears an all-black dress which features a very sensual side split, exposing much of her long legs. She carries herself much like a princess, which makes it all the more impossible to leave her out of this list. From her glassy eyes, to black dress, Black Lady really knows how to bring an audience in, leaving almost everything to the imagination.
8. Sorano/Angel from Fairy Tail
- Episodes: 175 (2009), 102 (2014)
- Aired: October 2009 – March 2013; April 2014 – March 2016
In the land of Fiore, magic and wizardry are commonplace. So commonplace that people have formed alliances, or guilds, where wizards can come together and perform various jobs for clients. The infamous Fairy Tail is one such guild and Lucy has come to Magnolia to locate and join this legendary guild. When she unexpectedly runs into a legendary member of the guild, the Salamander, all she can think about are the various adventures that await!
Our next sexy female villain is the Angel of the Oracion Seis. Deciding to give some of her life energy in order to become more beautiful, her appearance on this list is proof that her beauty hurts, but it’s worth it. Angel’s appearance is like that of a conventional angel, as she wears a beautiful dress made up of white feathers, angel wings on her back. Later, the dress splits up and exposes a heavenly amount of cleavage, also exposing her navel. Where it splits, rows of feathers line up and collect at her shoulders where they form feathery shoulder pads.
Angel also sports two angel wing tattoos on her collarbone. Her snow white hair is cut to a short bob. Due to the fact that Angel appears in two different time periods, her appearance changes slightly, but her sky-high sexiness does not. Who said angels can’t be elegant and sexy?
7. Raynare from Highschool DxD
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: January 2012 – March 2012
Hyodo Issei is one of the most perverted teenagers of all time and spends his time doing things that perverts do. Which is why it was very surprising when a beautiful girl from another school, Yuuma, asked him to be her boyfriend. His lonely virgin life was coming to a close. However, while the sun set on the day of their first date, Yuuma transformed into a scantily clad woman with black angel wings and armed with a spear, she killed him. It turns out that she was the fallen angel Raynare and that he has a secret power within him. Before Issei could draw his dying breath, a demon forms a contract with him, saving his life, but forever changing it in the process.
Raynare is probably one of the reason many people have trust issues. As Yuuma, she seemed like the sweetest girl, but as Raynare, she is a sadistic and cruel entity. It’s also sadistic and cruel that she’s sadistic, cruel and very well endowed. Her fallen angel form sports a very revealing black leather-like getup which covers only some of her chest and abdomen. She wears black thigh-length boots and her look is rounded off by her long, black hair and feathery black wings. With an outfit like that, how could Raynare not be one of the sexiest villains? After killing Issei, Raynare absolutely killed viewers with her look that has everyone asking the age-old question: “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”
6. Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
- Episodes: 53 (Original), 64 (Brotherhood)
- Aired: October 2003 – October 2004; April 2009 – July 2010
Alchemy is the understanding of matter and the ability to change it. All of alchemy rests on one all-important law: equivalent exchange. In order for something to be gained, something of equal value must be given up. When Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse decide to commit a taboo and attempt to use alchemy to resurrect their dead mother, the repercussions are severe. Edward loses an arm and a leg while Alphonse loses his entire body. Armed with the scars from that fateful incident, they have now become State Alchemists, sold seeking to find a way to return their bodies to the way they used to be.
Lust is a homunculus, an artificially-created human being and our next sexy villainess on this list. Like her name suggests, Lust is named after one of the Seven Deadly Sins, which is appropriate: that level of sexiness is life-ending. Lust normally wears a black dress which exposes her shoulders, collarbone and cleavage, long gloves which come up to her elbows like sleeves and she wears her long black hair down. Lust is able to use her beauty to her advantage and is a fan favourite for cosplaying – it is no surprise, if anyone could be half as sexy as Lust, they would be twice as sexy as anyone else.
5. Maria from Witchblade
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: April 2006 – September 2006
Passed down through the ages is the most powerful weapon in all existence, the Witchblade. Wielded solely by women, it selects its host, granting her unparalleled power. Six years after a massive earthquake which destroyed most of Tokyo, Amaha Masane and her daughter Rihoko are in Tokyo, in pursuit of a better life. That is until a series of events put Masane behind bars and with the appearance of a strange biological weapon in the cell next to hers, the Witchblade finally displays the power of its new host. The Witchblade - Righteous Sword of God, or Hand of the Devil himself?
Our number 5 is the biologically modified Maria from Witchblade. Maria is a Cloneblade bearer and one of the main antagonists of the show. But that’s beside the point. There’s a reason why she’s on this list. On a normal day, Maria sports a blue and a red pair of ponytails with a blonde fringe, an interesting top that looks quite similar to a corset with ample cleavage, incredibly short shorts and black thigh-length boots with a red streak down the middle to match her top, which has slits on both sides, baring her waist.
There is quite a lot to see on such a petite character. Bearing a Cloneblade means that Maria has access to an all-powerful, somewhat scary yet very sexy transformation which turns her ponytails into sharp, clear blades, her skin turns a shade of violet and unlike the Witchblade and other Cloneblades, she has almost no armour protecting her apart from on her shoulders, covering her other parts are just mere streaks of red going down both sides of her chest, her arms and in her hair blades.
It’s a bit too early to be drooling so much.
4. Anemone from Eureka SeveN
- Episodes: 50
- Aired: April 2005 – April 2006
14-year-old Renton Thurston has always dreamed about joining the most infamous rebel group, Gekkostate. Bored with his current life in the city of Bellforest and frustrated with the prospects he faces in the future, he believes that his life sucks. However, when a giant mecha, or LFO (Light Finding Operation), crash lands into his garage and the beautiful pilot, Eureka, requests a tune-up for her Nirvash Type Zero, Renton can taste the excitement. It only gets better for him when the mysterious pilot of the LFO identifies herself as a member of Gekkostate. Finally, his life in the tired old town of Bellforest can come to an end.
Anemone is Eureka’s lookalike and polar opposite at the same time. She is a complete sadist and one of more insane characters of the show. But we all know that the best villains are the crazy, sexy ones and Anemone definitely fits the bill. Being an LFO pilot herself, Anemone is mostly seen wearing a black skin-tight bodysuit that caresses her body while she completely obliterates everything, from the cockpit of her LFO. When she’s not piloting, Anemone’s often seen rocking a short orange and white dress which shows off her awesome legs.
From her slender yet beautiful frame, her sultry purple eyes and her dizzyingly attractive yet terrifying demeanour, Anemone has definitely booked her place as one of the sexiest villains of all time.
3. Enoshima Junko from Danganronpa
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: July 2013 – September 2013
Fifteen students are accepted into Hope’s Peak Academy, each with their own unique talents which become their identities at the school. One of these students is the painfully normal Naegi Makoto, given the title “Ultimate Lucky Student”. Everything seemed normal until Makoto passed out seconds after walking through the school gates. He and his new classmates are held captive by their headmaster, Monokuma. The only way they can leave is by successfully murdering one another without being caught. Can Naegi and his new classmates find a way out?
This brings us to our next sexy female villain. Enoshima Junko is the true mastermind behind the evils of Hope’s Peak but some viewers tend to believe that all can be forgiven, even her conniving, murderous impulses and unpredictable personality. And who can blame them, Enoshima Junko is serious eye candy. Junko’s so good looking that when she was killed off for being caught for murder, the story was spun in such a way that she’d still be alive! Okay, no, in actuality, she has a twin sister, but that’s not what matters right now.
Junko has an hourglass figure, done justice by her sense of fashion. She is normally seen wearing a black cardigan over a white shirt, an undone necktie which brings attention to her cleavage, a red bow tie on the left side of her chest, a short red skirt and mid-sized boots. Her hair is strawberry blonde and done up into two ponytails and she wears quite a bit of makeup, baby blue eyeshadow being the most notable.
2. Melona from Queen’s Blade
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: April 2009 – June 2009
In a certain faraway country, the bearer of the title of queen is decided through a tournament and every few years, a new queen is enthroned. Our #2 beauty is Melona, the strongest (and the sexiest) minion of the Swamp Queen. Melona is a slime and completely able to change her form to whatever she desires.
Melona has two defining physical characteristics: her sky blue eyes and her pink hue. She is normally seen wearing very little, sporting only a translucent pink jacket with short sleeves, as well as a short, tight matching skirt and pink boots. Melona’s hair is long and pink, featuring a pair of bunny ears and two long locks of hair drape over her exposed chest, forming hands which form very limited cover, leaving almost nothing to the imagination. Anyone fancy a few licks of this flavour of Melona on a hot summer day, perhaps?
With an outfit which offers about as much cover as a newspaper during a nuclear war, it is of no surprise that Melona is on this list. Her ability to change her form gives her unlimited possibilities and with unlimited possibilities, come various forms of pink sexiness that only she can provide. What she normally does with her ability is already too sexy for human comprehension. Imagine what she could do if she really set her mind to it.
1. Esdeath from Akame ga KILL!
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: July 2014 – December 2014
Akame ga KILL! follows the activities of the assassination group of the Revolutionary Army, Night Raid and their rebellion against the Empire, which has long been corrupt and caused the people to suffer. Tatsumi initially visits the imperial capital with the intention of joining the military and earning enough money to send to his home village, but after experiencing first-hand the darkness that runs through the empire, he decides to join Night Raid, after a chance encounter he has with them.
At the very top of our list of the sexiest female villains is none other than General Esdeath. Esdeath is the most powerful soldier on the empire’s books and her bloodlust and love for battle make her a very formidable general. Military things aside, with her long blue hair, thick blue eyelashes, glorious bust and porcelain skin, she was always meant to be on this list. Esdeath’s almost always seen wearing the standard general uniform but she keeps her top buttons undone, exposing a generous amount of cleavage and a strange mark in the middle of her chest, drawing our attention more often than not.
Now that we have given you a taste of some of the sexiest forms of evil in anime, we are sure that we have left you with your mouths wide open and wide-eyed and who can blame you? These villains definitely put the “nosebleed” in the word “nosebleed”. Is there a super sexy baddie that we might’ve left out? Drop a comment below and tell us what you think. And don’t forget to wipe your noses!
