Top 10 Times Cheaters Got Owned in Anime

Time for these deceivers to get done in. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Times Cheaters Got Owned in Anime.

For this list, we’re looking at the mischief makers in anime who thought they could pull a fast one, only to get exposed and humiliated on the spot. Keep in mind we aren’t talking about adultery here, that’s a juicy countdown for another day. Otherwise, anyone who tried to pull the wool over another’s eyes is legible for consideration. Get ready for swindlers and spoilers down the line.

(Todd Introduction)

#10: Itsuki Sumeragi
“Kakegurui” (2017-)

Let’s get this out the way first – practically every opponent Yumeko has gambled against has tried to dupe her in some way, and lost. Though out of all of them, this one might be the most satisfying. As something of a spoiled princess with a fetish for fingernails, Sumeragi might have thought that her cheating ways would have snatched her prize in a heartbeat. After all, with a deck of cards rigged to show unique patterns when exposed to heat, there’s no way Yumeko could win…right? Not so, since Yumeko not only outplays her but ups the crazy factor to infinity, pressuring Sumeragi for a rematch until she literally breaks down in tears.

#9: Etsuya Eizan
“Food Wars” (2015-18)

You almost have to admire how in your face this guy is with his greed. Obsessed with using the culinary arts for profit over anything else, it’s no wonder Eizan backed the villainous Azami Nakiri when he turned Totsuki Academy into a totalitarian society. Now with all the power in his corner, Eizan had no issue when it came to openly bribing judges in order to win any and all Shokugeki against rebellious students. Of course, Soma ain’t your average chef, since he managed to conjure up some chicken that tasted so good, the judges had no choice but to declare him the winner. The look on Eizan’s face says it all.

#8: Otsuki
“Kaiji: Against All Rules” (2011)

With way too much time on his hands, there was nothing that this foreman loved to do more than manipulate the prisoners of the forced labour camp into playing Chinchirorin with him. However, as opposed to a mere distraction, this was merely a ruse in order for him and his cronies to fleece the masses of what little earnings they had, all made possible thanks to a special dice that always landed high. His spree of good fortune didn’t last long however, as Kaiji not only managed to expose his setup, but then proceeded to use said dice to rob Otsuki of every last bit of money he had to his name.

#7: Makoto Hanamiya
“Kuroko’s Basketball” (2012-15)

Just because basketball is technically regarded as a contact sport doesn’t give you the right to start throwing elbows dude! As one of the Uncrowned Kings, Hanamiya certainly has talent, it’s just a shame he mostly uses it to foul his way to victory by having his team-mates kick the crap out the other players in subtle ways. Bad to the bone and a jerk to the nth degree, it’s kind of amazing that this guy hasn’t been banned from the court. Ah well, we’ll just have to settle for Seirin owning them in a game.

#6: Bandit Keith
“Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” (2000-04)

Why is a grown-ass man spending his days trying to trounce people in a children’s card game via unfair tactics? Because he’s from AMERICA! That’s why. He’s got the bandana to prove it. Hoping for riches and fame, Keith did practically everything possible to ensure that he walked out of Duelist Kingdom the winner. Unfortunately for him, no matter how many bonus cards he snuck into his deck, he can’t best Joey’s natural born talent. When that failed, he flat out pulled a gun on Pegasus. Unless you’re watching the 4Kids version, then it just looks like he’s pointing at him menacingly. Either way, he soon finds himself treading water. Literally.

#5: The Foxy Pirates
“One Piece” (1999-)

In what universe is tangoing with the Straw Hat Pirates a good idea? You only need to take one look at Zoro to know that he means business, and yet Foxy and his crew still thought they had a chance? Granted, these battles are basically comic relief, but that doesn’t excuse how this fox-faced fiend tried to cheat at every turn. He made each contest in his crew’s favour, implemented underhanded tactics, even tried to blindsight Luffy during his boxing match. They may have been wily in their ways, but nothing tops Luffy and company when it comes to overcoming the impossible.

#4: Oberon
“Sword Art Online” (2012)

Even if he does have a voice that makes angels weep, this so-called Fairy King isn’t so much a gracious ruler as he is a gamer who really needs to be put on some kind of watch-list. Willing to do anything to claim Asuna and take out Kirito, Oberon happily twisted the rules of Alfheim Online to his advantage. Considering there’s nothing this guy hates more than a fair fight, using illegal techniques like Gravity Magic in order to hold Kirito in place while he felt up Asuna is hardly a stretch. Hope he enjoyed himself, since it wouldn’t be long until he got his ass handed to him both inside and outside the gaming sphere.

#3: Boruto Uzumaki
“Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” (2017-)

Are you proud of yourself, young man? Just look at what you did! An unfortunate combination of teenage issues, swollen ego and manipulation all led to this shinobi throwing away his big day, when he was exposed for using an illegal Ninja Tool during the Chunin Exams. His excuse? “It’s your fault Dad because you never trained me! I hate you!” Hey kid, did you ever hear the one about how your Dad spend his childhood isolated by the whole village, and yet managed to stick to his guns and relied on his own strength to take him places? Didn’t see him whining about it did you! Now go to your room!

#2: Frost
“Dragon Ball Super” (2015-)

I hate to stereotype, but it seems no matter where you look in the multiverse, Frieza’s lookalikes are always clinging to the dark side. Frost might not be a genocidal maniac, but he’s hardly leaning towards lawful good. After all, when it came time for Universe 6 and 7 to bump heads, he fooled everyone into thinking he was a stand up guy…before suddenly turning the tables on his opponent with one dirty trick after the next. He might have gotten away with it to, if not for the fact there’s nothing in all of spacetime stronger than Vegeta’s hate-boner for all things Frieza.

#1: Team Masho
“Yu Yu Hakusho” (1992-95)

Even in a tournament filled with demons, these guys managed to standout as the most dishonest, underhanded, devious and assholish group you’re likely to come across. Willing to do anything to win, and backed by their slimeball manager Butajiri, their meddling almost spelled doom for Team Urameshi. With Kuwabara forced to fight while injured and Genkai and Hiei locked away from fighting, it almost looked like they would walk away the winners…but it wasn’t enough to keep Urameshi’s group of badasses down. Yep, these folks truly were the worst. Not you though Jin – you’ll always be our sweet Irish muffin.
