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 anime characters (either heroes or villains) are depicted with traits more realistic and less cartoonish than 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, though they might be considered characters from Western pseudo-anime (The Boondocks, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra and RWBY are examples of cartoons mistaken for anime).

This category often overlaps with Manga Villains due to most manga comics being adapted into anime or vice versa.
