The Evil Henchmen of Anime


Ginyu Force
You cannot be an evil overlord without having a slew of minions; it is practically in the rulebook that henchmen are a must have. While most of your faceless goons will be dispatched by the heroes with a single sword stroke, gunshot, or magical fireball, there is always that one final general that they must overcome before attempting to end your reign of terror.



Pride

From: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood


Pride
Pride is the oldest and most powerful of Father’s homunculi servants. His ability to manipulate shadows as horrific monsters give him similar abilities to most of his six brothers and sisters combined. Cruel and sadistic with little care for most others, including his siblings, Pride’s absolute loyalty to Father is his only true allegiance.


Starscream

From: Transformers: Generation 1


Starscream
In the universe of Transformers, the name Starscream is practically synonymous with “backstabber” and “traitor”. Starscream serves as Megatron’s right-hand bot and the commander of the Decepticon battle fleet but constantly attempts to oust Megatron and take control of his armies. His first attempt in doing so was a mere 5 minutes into the first episode of Transformers. Despite endless failed attempts he never learns and keeps trying, but Megatron never learns either and persists in keeping Starscream around. Until he becomes Galvatron, that is…


Bismark Waldstein

From: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2


Bismarck
Bismarck holds the title of Knight of One, being the most powerful member of Emperor Charles zi Britannia’s Knights of the Round. After the death of his emperor, he led the surviving Knights in an attempt to remove the empire’s usurper from power only to be defeated by the new emperor’s own Knight of One.


Ulquiorra Cifer

From: Bleach


Ulquiorra
Despite being ranked as #4 among Aizen’s elite Espada, Ulquiorra nonetheless was his most loyal henchman and was secretly the strongest of the group. While all the Espada have the ability to undergo a transformation into a more powerful form, Ulquiorra was unique in having a second transformation that pushed him well beyond the limits of the first. In many ways he serves as a mirror image to Ichigo as a monster who is becoming more human, whereas Ichigo was a human becoming more like a monster.


Kabuto Yakushi

From: Naruto


Kabuto
Kabuto is Orochimaru’s right-hand man and a expert of medical ninjutsu, serving as Orochimaru’s personal physician in the madman’s quest for immortality. After his master's alleged demise, Kabuto resolved to take up his mantle by transplanting pieces of his corpse into his own body.


Captain Ginyu

From: Dragon Ball Z


Ginyu
Captain Ginyu serves the galactic overlord Frieza as his strongest soldier and the leader of the Ginyu Force, Frieza’s most elite soldiers and a Super Sentai (Power Rangers) parody. Along with already impressive strength, Ginyu possesses the ability to forcibly change bodies and steal the strength of the rare opponent who is stronger than he is. His absolute loyalty to Frieza is, presumably, the only thing that kept him from doing this to his master.


Giriko

From: Soul Eater


Giriko
Giriko is a servant of the powerful witch Arache as one of the top members of her organization Arachnophobia. He is one of the few antagonistic demon weapons in the series, with the ability to transform into a chainsaw. Unlike most other weapon characters, Giriko prefers to fight solo by manifesting moving chainsaw blades on different parts of his body.


Teru Mikami

From: Death Note


Mikami
When Light’s investigations into the Kira killer (i.e. himself) made it too difficult to keep the Death Note on-hand he entrusted the book to Mikami, who became the Hand of Kira. Worshipping Light/Kira as a god, he maintains a normal persona in public but appears to have a hidden psychotic side that fully emerges when killing with the Death Note.


Ogremon

From: Digimon Adventure


Ogremon
When the villain Devimon made it his goal to destroy the Digidestined, he brainwashed many good Digimon into doing his dirty work with his dark powers. Ogremon was the sole exception, joining the digital devil willingly for a chance to destroy his rival Leomon.


Odion

From: Yu☆Gi☆Oh! Duel Monsters


Odion
As a young boy Malik Ishtar underwent physical and psychological torture at the hands of his father in the name of a long-dead pharaoh. His foster brother Odion tried his best to protect him, but ultimately Marik’s descent into darkness could not be stopped. Odion has stood by his adoptive brother Marik's side since birth as his loyal protector.


Team Rocket Trio

From: Pokemon


Jessie, James, Meowth
The Team Rocket Trio are self-proclaimed evil doers reporting directly to Team Rocket leader Giovanni, always attempting to steal Pikachu and other Pokémon in the name of all that is bad.

Zechs Marquise

From:Mobile Suit Gundam Wing


Zechs
Joining the military at a young age, Zechs rose through the ranks to become the number two man to Treize Kushrenada, the head of the secretive OZ organization. When OZ conducts a military coup and takes over the Earth Federation, Zechs begins to question the choices that have shaped his life as his long forgotten past returns to shape his future.


Vanilla Ice

From: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders


Vanilla Ice
Dio Brando is easily the most prominent villain in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and Vanilla Ice serves as his most powerful minion. Fanatically loyal to Dio, this vampire once beat a man to death with his bare hands for merely insulting his master.


Queen Beryl

From: Sailor Moon


Queen Beryl
This series had a habit of having the Sailor Soldiers fight an enemy for the entire season and then revealing in the final battle that that villain was just the henchman for an even greater villain. Queen Beryl begins this cycle as the servant to Queen Metalia, spending the season paving the way for her master and becoming the most well-known Sailor Moon villain in the process.


Kanna

From: InuYasha


Kanna
The demon Naraku created many offspring demons as reincarnations and Kanna is pretty much the only one who had no desire to stab him in the back. Stoic and often speaking in a singular tone, Kanna was all but completely loyal to Naraku until shortly before he sacrificed her for his own ambitions.
