Best/favorite anti-hero.

Games, Gaming and Hardware
For those that don't know, an anti-hero is someone that isn't just good or evil, but rather someone that works mainly for their own personal goals. When they do choose a side, it's always temporary, and usually go back to their own side when everything is said and done. In this thread, you may choose who you think is the best or who is your favorite.

As for me, I pick Wario. Why? 2 reasons: 1) I just always liked him. 2) D'oh I missed!
darth vader, he is! look at the (ugh) prequels to find out!

Magus from Chrono Trigger, by far.

He's cold, ruthless, shows no mercy whatsoever, and will not hesitate to speak his mind, regardless of what anyone else thinks of him. But at the same time, he's not inherently evil; he's just alone and, deep down, scared. He does things his way, whether it is for good or evil. Just so long as he gets what he wants.

"If the future is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If it is my fate to die... I must simply laugh!" - Magus, Chrono Trigger.
My favorite is definitely The Illusive Man from Mass Effect (2 and 3).

My favorite is definitely The Illusive Man from Mass Effect (2 and 3).

I feel like he's far too overtly villainous to call an anti-hero, especially by ME3. I guess it's slightly ambiguous, but his methods and goals strike me as far too racist and harmful to others to be anything but villainous.

As for my favorite anti-hero, probably Deadpool.
I guess in Mass Effect 2 he's closer to an anti-hero whereas in Mass Effect 3 he's closer to a villain, but the final scene on the Citadel with him paints him as more of a victim of the true villains than a true villain himself, but that's just my opinion.
LeLouch Vi Britannia from Code Geass. My favorite anime and thats mainly because how much I love this character.

I love how cold and calculating he typically is and the false charade he gives most of those around him. Even when at the heart of it at all he still cares about his friends.

Definitely in my top list. There aren't that many villains who can successfully fill the role of protagonist and remain as likable as he does.
Surely there must be others who have appreciation for anti-heroes.
