A strong opinion about villains in current anime has generated a heated debate among anime fans on Japanese forums. A Twitter user stated that current villains only serve as a way for the protagonists to display their immense power.

By not doing so, your job is to actually be a villain who threatens the world or people around you.

Let’s check out exactly what this user said: ”Enemies in isekais and recent anime seem to exist for the sole purpose of making the protagonist display their immense power and defeat them easily, rather than being so evil that they actually threaten the peace or people who think differently than them, which is sad.

It’s hard to put into words, but current anime villains exist only to show off the protagonist and are not a real threat. In the end, it seems that the protagonist is the true villain, a physical abuser who takes advantage of his immense power.”

As you can see, villains in current anime are different from those in the past according to this user’s statement. The villains are not like, for example, Madara Uchiha from the Naruto franchise, who at the time represented a great threat and in fact displayed overwhelming power. Over the years, this idea of ​​a villain has been lost from what we can conclude.

And with that opinion, let’s check out anime fans’ comments on this issue involving villains in current animes:

“What I’m saying is he’s a delusional idiot. But there’s something about having an enemy that gets in the protagonist’s way over and over again that people don’t like. If they don’t beat them quickly, fans will think the author is prolonging the story.”

“After reading this, I am convinced that there is no true villain today”

“I don’t think I’ve ever had contact with creative writing, much less can you find something like that in anime”

“In creative writing in general, how many stories can you remember where the villain succeeds until the end?”

”So you prefer a manga like Jujutsu Kaisen where Sukuna is killing everyone and each chapter is more and more repetitive?”

”Honestly it’s true. Even in Rimuru’s story, enemies appear in a herd so that the protagonist can slaughter at will.”

Many fans do not fail to notice the way in which many manga authors have presented their villains in a way where the protagonist can display all of his power.
