    Probably nostalgia but the whole mystery surrounding father and his general demeanor really intrigued me and I was reading FMA when the chapters were still being released so I was really invested with him unlike other villains so yeah.

    1. Blackbeard (One Piece)
    2. Hisoka (HxH)
    3. Dio (JoJo)
    4. Father (FMA:B)
    Spoiler:
    Father was a much better villain than people give him credit for, he is rather uninspiring in most scenes besides flashbacks but that's kinda the point because he purged his human emotions. If you take the personalities of the seven homunculi into consideration and start applying them to him (which they were to begin with), he's a pretty conflicted and profound character. While his desire was to get out of his flask (which even up to the end was still his goal conceptually - with Truth being the flask containing him), he also yearned for companions, was envious of humans, had an incredibly low self-esteem and yada yada.

    3. Various GitS villains

    4. Big Daddy from Until Death . . .

    He's the main character tho :maybe

    In no given order:

    All For One(BnHA)
    Crocodile(One Piece)
    Blackbeard(One Piece)
    Kira Yoshikage(JJBA)
    DIO(JJBA)

    There are a ton of good ones tho, so:

    Honorable Mentions: Makoto Shishio, Father, Meruem, Chrollo Lucilfer(Pains me so much that both of this aren't in the top 5), Sakazuki, Rob Lucci(Actually this goes to the entire CP9 organization and plot during W7 and Enies Lobby more than it does Lucci, but Lucci represents it all).
