Top 10 Anime Villains That Got Their Asses Kicked


Oh, you are so going down! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we are counting down our picks for Top 10 Anime Villains That Got Their Asses Kicked.

For this list we’re not looking at one-on-one slugfests but rather villains that were completely outmatched by the hero either right from the start, or after a mid-fight boost in power. Naturally this list will cover some pretty significant battles so a spoiler warning is now in effect.

#10: Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald

“Fate/Zero” (2011-12)

Arrogant villains are always the best choice for a well deserved beat down, and luckily for us this magus is as smug as they come. After having his secret base destroyed by protagonist Kiritsugu, Kayneth arrives at the Einzbern manor to take some sweet revenge. He has no problem keeping his prey on the ropes thanks to his pet ball of mercury that can block almost anything and slice you into bits at the same time. Alas no one expects the magic bullets and Kiritsugu manages to land two shots with his signature pistol. The first one pierces the shoulder while the second one completely fries Kayneth’s nerves.

#9: Nobuyuki Sugou

“Sword Art Online” (2012)

The owner of ALfheim Online seems up to some shady business considering 300 people are somehow trapped in his game including series love interest, Asuna. This obviously doesn’t sit well with Kirito and he enters into virtual reality one more time to find his girl. In the climactic showdown, Kirito overpowers him with the use of admin commands. Nobuyuki gets so mad that he ambushes the teenager in the real world with a knife… and loses a second time!

#8: Risho

“Yu Yu Hakusho” (1994-96)

Risho is shown to be the strong silent type who only speaks out when one of his teammates is about to get blasted from outside the ring. His true personality comes out when he takes to the ring to face a heavily injured Kuwabara in the final round. His opponent can’t even summon his weapon but that doesn’t stop this ruthless ninja from decimating the poor guy with magic. Fortunately for Kuwabara, the power of love kicks in and charges his power just enough to smack Risho out of the arena – ya’ done, son.

#7: Neferpitou

“Hunter x Hunter” (2011-14)

Neferpitou is not an opponent to be taken lightly considering their position as one of the Chimera Ant King’s royal guards. It’s not just a fancy title either since they have no problem taking down the powerful hunter, Kite. However they make the fatal mistake in angering Gon who, once learning of his friend’s fate, releases his latent energy that not only ages him into an adult with a sweet hairdo but also boosts his power considerably. Neferpitou does the smart thing and tries to attack the beast from behind only to meet with one of the most brutal 2-hit combos we’ve seen in anime.

#6: Koyoma

“Mob Psycho 100” (2016)

If there’s one thing this series continuously hammers into our heads it’s that when Mob’s emotions go out of control, it’s a bad time for everyone. Koyoma, a high ranking member of the criminal organization Claw, is sent out to do the worst possible thing you can do; kidnap Mob’s brother, Ritsu. Though he maintains the upper-hand for most of the fight and ultimately completes his mission, he does piss off Mob enough to get a crash course in psychic wrestling. Their rematch, if you can even call it one, goes a little differently with Koyoma barely lasting a second before he gets ping-ponged around the room.

#5: Sea King

“One Punch Man” (2015)

Let’s be honest here, if you’re a villain in this world it is your destiny to get your ass kicked. Sea King stands out from his predecessors because he’s the first tangible threat to the Heroes Association. He single-handily takes down two S-Rank heroes: Puri-puri Prisoner and Saitama’s cyborg student, Genos. The latter narrowly escapes death thanks to the efforts of the much less powerful but equally as heroic Mumen Rider, who unfortunately becomes the Sea King’s new punching bag for a bit. Thankfully all the abuse and tearful monologues pay off when Saitama shows up to do what he does best.

#4: Clementine

“Overlord” (2015)
We all knew this fight was coming and we sure couldn’t wait to see it happen. Clementine is one sadistic, crazy rogue sporting an outfit made from the medals of slain adventurers. She greatly enjoys inflicting pain and suffering on her victims which she makes very clear in the gruesome aftermath of her battle with the good-natured Swords of Darkness. Complimenting this unstable personality is her skill in battle, showing little effort in dodging and countering Ainz’s attacks in the first part of their fight. It’s too bad then that Ainz is actually a giant undead mage who is borderline invincible and can give a pretty mean hug.

#3: Android 19

“Dragonball Z” (1989-96)

Created by Dr. Gero solely to take revenge on Goku for defeating the Red Ribbon Army, Android 19 is definitely not someone you’d want to meet in an alley. His signature ability allows him to absorb all manner of energy through the palms in his hands and adds it to his own, so lobbing kamehamehas at him is not exactly the best idea. After Goku succumbs to the reality of high cholesterol, 19 moves onto his next opponent who, unfortunately for him, has no medical conditions and has just ascended to super saiyan status. Needless to say, 19 is quickly disarmed and eventually blown away by Vegeta’s new signature move.

#2: Steely Dan

“Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders” (2014-15)

From killing old ladies with parasites to backhanding children across the face, this guy has absolutely no shame. Steely Dan is the antagonist’s hired assassin and he possesses the oh-so-pleasant stand named Lovers. This insect-sized stand crawls inside the victim’s ear and attaches itself firmly to the brain – and yes, it gets worse because any damage that Dan takes is reflected onto the infected person. This might make him quite honestly the most frustrating villain to deal with, but Joseph’s group eventually finds a way to stop this pest from causing any more damage, and Jotaro takes his frustration out with a solid 20 second ORA ORA; one of the longest in the series.

#1: Spandam

“One Piece” (1999-)

Just like any other long running anime series you’re going to have quite a few ass-kickings along the way. Spandam is a special case on this list just because of how much of a clumsy villain he is. He leads the Cipher Pol 9 but he’s a coward at heart and only appears threatening if his opponent is tied up. He’s no stranger to pain but it’s honestly impressive how he can walk off having his face smashed in or slapped to unconsciousness. It’s even more impressive that he’s still alive after Robin’s brutal, and satisfying, use of her Clutch technique to back him backwards and snap his spine like a twig…
