Villains who appear in Japanese animation or similar Eastern media, often having very expressive features such as large eyes and symbolism not always found in Western animation. Most characters in anime (either heroes or villains) are depicted with traits that are less cartoonish than those in Western cartoons.

IMPORTANT: do NOT add Western cartoon characters under this category. Those belong only in the category Cartoon Villains, regardless if they are anime-inspired or how anime-esque they are (The Boondocks, Teen Titans, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and RWBY are all examples of cartoons mistaken for animes).
