Villains who appear in foreign animations or their adaptations, often having very expressive features such as large eyes and symbolism not always found in Western animations. Most characters in anime (either heroes or villains) are depicted with traits more realistic and less cartoonish than those in Western media.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT add Western cartoon characters under this category. Those belong only in the category Cartoon Villains regardless of whether or not they were anime-inspired or how anime-esque they were (The Boondocks, Avatar: The Last Airbender and RWBY are some examples of cartoons mistaken for anime). However, both anime and cartoons are a form of animated media and quite similar in some regards.
