Not sure if this thread already exits or not (if so a new thread for it). For an interesting discussion about Naruto I thought it be interesting for a topic discussing the Villains in Naruto; who you consider to be the best or favourite the series has offered or who you consider the worst or hate the most in the series. They can be for the following reasons: of cool designs, characteristics, abilities, impact on the story, their fights or any other reason etc.
For me the best Is Pain/Nagato when he was a villain and Orochimaru. Pain because the Impact he had on Naruto with Jiraya's death, his speech about justice, vengeance & hatred that left him speechless and the fact he is the first villain to destroy his home Kohona. His fight with Naruto I consider the best in the series, not to mention his God like abilities were the most realistic in the series before the went DBZ levels)
Orochimaru Because he was the Big bad for most of Part 1, responsible for the deaths of two Kages leading Tsunade to replace the third and Gaara his father and broke team 7 apart by having Sasuke leave the leaf village (for better or for worse for the series). Plus his fight against The Third was amazing.
For Favourite Villain would be Kisame due to his appearance and abilities are the most interesting and I always enjoy his interaction and fight with Gai that I wish we had more time with him in the series.
For the worst I consider Kaguya and Sasuke (sort of). Kaguya in concept and backstory is not bad in fact I fined it quite interesting, however how she was included to the main story doesn't work as she replaced Madara and turned out to be the true mastermind of the series (or Black Zetsu same thing really) far too late in the series. Not to mention she is rather bland as a character at least what ever you thought of the uchiha clan members that became villains Sasuke least had a motivation of vengeance, Obito and a negative outlook on life and Madara got excited when fighting someone of Hahsirama's level, Kaguya just has an obession with Charaka and that not really interesting. Plus her Fight was boring with the only saving grace be that funny moment when Naruto used the Sexy Jutsu and the last panel with team 7 finally all hitting her. Granted had she been fleshed out more beforehand and giving more motivation and characteristics or introduced in perhaps the spin off as the main villain she might of done better, but instead we got what's prehaps one of the worst big boss fights in Shonen history.
For Sasuke I don't really mind him being a villain, its just how it plays out as its all over the place, from vengeance against elders, then the whole leaf to protecting it his way with revolution and killing anyone who gets in his way. If I were to have the Itachi revelation I would have honestly had him just find out whether not it was true and when proven true vows to crush the leaf and the ninja system at large by start a revolution, only to be stopped by Naruto and friends (mainly Sakura) to helping them fight against who ever is the big bad at the end of the series and kill Danzo if he hasn't already done so. Not to mention The obsession Naruto had with really got out of control. Well least his fight against Killer along with Taka was fun for me.
The most hated for me is somewhat joke/serious is (other) Hinata. Her obsession with Naruto, her annoying vocal fanbase, Studio Perriot's favouritism of her and the fact because of her the series was ruined to the point of no recovery.
One finale not the Polls have multiple choice so you can rank them if you want.
