I should really know better than to put forward REAL villains from old or obscure anime in the place of miscellaneous anti-heroes and pseudo-villains from iconic and shallow pop-culture based media. Lesson learned.

When any of you want to start watching and appreciating the good anime out there rather than obsessing on American comic books where the villains are so one-dimensional you wonder how stupid the super heroes can be for not just ending their pathetic lives when they catch them the first time, let me know. Almost all of the good anime I listed is on Youtube in its entirety, from Claymore and Violence Jack to Hellsing and Karas.

When most of the people on this site were growing up there was no YouTube. There was just a TV. We grew up with Batman, X-Men, Superman, Spiderman, and other comic based cartoons. They're the guys we grew attached to. It's not an issue of what cartoons we can watch now, it's what we watched when we were growing up.

They're just cartoons, they're meant for kids and reminding adults of their childhoods. No kid sits there thinking this is shallow and has a totally predictable story. All they want is to see Batman kick Jokers ass.

And I don't know about the rest of the people here but I don't watch these cartoons anymore, I grew out of them. If I happen to stumble across something like The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show I watch it but I don't plan to watch them.

The Hellsing anime is horrible >_> Probably one of the worst manga to anime adaptions.

Alucard's voice in the dub is the only great thing about it.

I would tell you to cry more, but I'll just get moderated again. So instead, I will say that it's your opinion, and you're entitled to it. But results are results.

Ya, a site mostly visited by North Americans and Brits isn't much of a place to preach how you think Asian cartoons are superior.

Except a vast majority of American cartoons are marketed towards children, where more often than not Japanese Anime is marketed towards adults and teens.

It's a natural occurrence that when you outgrow American cartoons, you move on to the more adult-oriented Japanese animes.

But really, no one in their right mind could think Joker was a good villain. No discernible motivation other than a clear mental handicap. Sure sociopathic "villains" are fun, but they're nowhere near evil.

But I honestly don't care, the majority of people being classified as "Villains" are clear anti-heroes or were easily manipulated by the REAL villain. No one mentioned Sovereign, but Saren made it in no questions asked. Not only is that a clear case of ignorance on the differences between anti-heroes and villains, but also a clear sign of ignorance of the plot of Mass Effect as a whole.

MewTwo is an anti-hero as well. He wanted ONLY to ensure Pokemon superiority and dominion rather than Pokemon being eternally enslaved to humanity. Villains would want total dominion over EVERYTHING, even their peers, which Mewtwo didn't want at all.

I fail to see how that's a natural occurrence. Not one of my real life friends or even acquaintances watches anime, not one. But they all watched cartoons as kids.

As for this whole anti-hero thing, that's what happens when you ask for nominations. I wanted the members to decide what they're going to be voting on. There will be disagreements, there's no way around it.

OP: This isn't your contest. The person in charge can run his contest as he sees fit and some people like different animation than Japanese anime (I find the X-Men Animated Series to top 90% of Japanese anime on personal taste). In short, if he wants those characters, then it shall be so. End of Discussion.
