    Every shonen anime seems to have atleast one group of elite villains that nobody wants to fuck with which is your favorite? Examples: Akatsuki from Nardo, Espada/Stern Ritters from Blech, 10 Commandments from NNT The Warlords from OP (Though not really sure about the Warlords from OP since they aren't really even a group just certain pirates given jurisdiction and privileges)

    The Akatsuki were the only group that was threatening and powerful. They actually killed and defeated significant protagonists and they managed to last throughout basically the entire series, unlike the Espada who were hyped up and then destroyed fairly easily and the Phantom Troupe who, in all honesty, don't seem to be that strong when compared to some of the protagonists. The Akatsuki also have the coolest uniforms and name IMO.

    Homonculi, Noah family.

    Star Commanders from Psyren were also decent, though not from an anime (but neither is Stern Ritter, so whatever)

    Some of my favorite villain groups are the Ginyu Tokusentai from Dragon Ball, Akatsuki from Naruto, the Shichibukai from One Piece, the Noah Family from D.Gray-Man, and both the Gotei 13 and Espada from Bleach, and I like each of those groups because each member had their own distinct personality, their own distinct abilities, and, mostly managed to be a formidable threat to the protagonists of their respective series. Technically, the Gotei 13 were not villains, but they were introduced as antagonists to the heroes and followed the pattern for many villain groups, and I did not choose the Stern Ritter because Kubo had already previously had two such groups, so they felt somewhat repetitive by the time of their introduction, and also because the series was cut short before all of them could display the full extent of their abilities.

    Are you referring to the Knights of the Round from Final Fantasy VII, or a different KotR?
