Drama series A piece features some of the most despicable villains in any Shonen manga. Some of these villains have backstories that justify their actions and some are rotten from their core. Regardless of why they are, their actions make it easy for these villains to be hated by fans. While some of these villains are also incredibly powerful, many of them are not, which makes their actions all the more frustrating.
Part of the reason these villains are so despicable is the way One Piece was written. Mangaka Eiichiro Oda is an expert at portraying injustice at both the social and individual levels, and the drivers of this oppression. This causes many characters who were just minor villains in another series to be expanded into an overwhelming evil role. As a result, One Piece’s villains are some of the most hated out there, and here are the 10 most despicable of them all.
10 Rob Lucci
While Lucci may not be as despicable as many of the other villains on this list, he’s still a terrible human being. He is a villain devoted to absolute justice by the World Government and is ready to take any action as their agent. As a child, he brutally killed 500 hostages of a pirate before killing the pirate and his crew, which shows his level of devotion to almost sociopathy. . In Water 7, he also shows a willingness to betray those who see him as a friend when he severely injures his shipbuilder friend Paulie after dropping cover. So while Lucci may not be as obviously evil as the others, especially since he recently allied with Luffy, here he still easily deserves a spot on the list. This.
Blackbeard is currently considered one of the biggest threats in One Piece. Blackbeard captured Ace, thus leading to his death in Marineford, and was directly responsible for Whitebeard’s death there, so many fans hate him for good reason. Blackbeard has also shown that he’s willing to stoop anywhere to get what he wants, including defeating enemies when they’re falling. Unfortunately, though, he still doesn’t have the focus that many of the other villains on this list have, which means he’s currently near the bottom of this list.
While Skypiea as an arc is often looked down upon by fans for not being closely linked to other installments of the series, no one can deny that its villain Enel is actually a villain. despicable antagonist. Possessing the Rumble-Rumble Fruit that allows him to become and control electricity, Enel rules over the Sky Islands like a god. His powers keep him from being attacked by common sense as well as allowing him to oversee everything that goes on in his kingdom without leaving his throne. If he thinks someone is disrespecting him or his rules, he will take them down mercilessly. All of this makes him a despicable narcissist and one of the most hated villains in the series.
7. Sakazuki – Akainu
Akainu is one of the Navy’s most devoted admirals, whose codename literally means “red dog”. This is in keeping with the amount of health on his hands that he has amassed during his service to the World Government, mercilessly destroying their enemies with gruesome acts like Buster Calls. However, the reason most fans look down on him is because of Ace’s brutal murder at the end of Marineford. Compared to mass murder and other atrocities, this may not seem like much, but after all the efforts to free Ace and his relationship with Luffy, this death has become one of those moments. One Piece’s most brutal and emotional, this definitely earns Akainu a spot on this list.
6 Hody Jones
Hody Jones at first seems like he has legitimate motives for his actions, being a victim of racism and human oppression just like Arlong and Fisher Tiger, but when the backstory is tragic of Fish-Man Island is revealed, which shows that he is different in many key ways. Hody Jones wanted to perpetuate the cycle of hatred and oppression instead of breaking it, as he was the one who murdered the benevolent Queen Otohime as she tried to truly bring peace between Mermaids and the surface world. . Although his distorted views are ultimately the result of the oppression he was born with, this does not excuse Hody’s extremely despicable actions.
Unlike many of the other villains on this list, Spandam isn’t terribly scary. In fact, in the part where he appeared, he was shown as almost a joke when compared to the powerful members of CP9. Even so, he stands out as an utterly irrevocable monster, gloating at Robin’s suffering and being an all-around terrible at every opportunity. All of this makes his lack of power actually even more frustrating as he acts as a representative of World Government organizations that allow despicable men to rise to the top. power position.
Caesar’s 4 Clowns
Caesar Clown is the main antagonist of Punk Hazard and is one of the first villains the Straw Hats encounter when they arrive in the New World. Caesar is a mad scientist by every definition, even a member of One Piece’s MADS super-scientific team, which attempts to perfect Smile Fruit technology by experimenting on captive children. In doing his research, he basically gets these kids into drug addiction, which is one of the darkest twists in the series. His callous disregard for the well-being of these children is what makes him one of One Piece’s most despicable villains.
3 Kurozumi Orochi
Orochi is Wano’s shogun who prefers to subjugate his subjects in order to avenge the way his family has been treated by the former ruling Kozuki clan. Orochi happily manipulated Oden, making him look like a fool in front of his people for 5 years before being publicly executed. Perhaps his more serious crime was the way he left both his people and the land of Wano itself ravaged by the pollution caused by Kaido’s factories. This resulted in his subjects being disfigured and starving, and made his selfish vengeance petty in comparison, making him one of the most antagonistic characters in the world. One Piece’s most hated face.
2 Donquixote Doflamingo
Doflamingo was the ruler of Dressrosa when the Straw Hats visited the island, and he subdued the land to his evil will. Anyone who disagrees with him is turned into a living doll, and when the Straw Hats threaten his right to rule, he traps the island’s citizens in a giant birdcage making them almost annihilated. His attitude is largely rooted in his childhood as a Celestial Dragon living among ordinary people who conspired to kill him and his family. But no plot can justify the sinister pleasure he derives from torturing those over whom he has power, making him easily one of those despicable villains. One Piece’s best.
1 Saint Charles and Thien Long
The most despicable villain here is arguably the weakest on this list, and that’s Saint Charles himself. Charlos serves as a replacement for the disgustingly corrupt Celestial Dragons, the aristocratic elite of the World Government who can legally do whatever they want to the world and its people . Charlos kills, enslaves and steals anything he likes, seemingly unaware of his debauchery. But this ignorance actually makes his crimes worse, not better, as it means he has no moral limits to what he can do. This makes Charles and all the other Heavenly Dragons like him easily the most despicable villains in One Piece.
Part of the reason why fans love these despicable villains is because they know that the heroes of the One Piece world will eventually take them down. This is part of the reason the Straw Hats are such inspirational heroes: they stand up and fight these despicable villains when others don’t. While many new manga villains are becoming more complex and understandable, the simple villain of A piecehis despicable villains show the reader that this type of character can be just as enjoyable.
