Villains are those people who chase after evil ends, using means unjustified and unjustifiable to gain their ends. This is a short listing of such people, with a summary of their modus operandi.
Villains are typically accorded one of four status tags: Active, meaning that they are known to be pursuing their villainous goals; Unknown, meaning they have not been seen or heard from in some time, but have not been widely known to be made metabolically-challenged; Captured, meaning that they are in official custody, serving sentence for their crimes; and Dead, meaning... you know.
- Alida Blandine: A rather quizzical kind of villain, Alida is a succubus who is gathering resources and strength in an attempt to overthrow Cardinal's current government and incite anarchy in its place. She is known to have other power-wielders as willing servants. Status: UNKNOWN.
- Angela Pryde: Despite not registering as any type of power user, this woman nonetheless fights on par with power wielders. Always appearing with her highly trained small squadron, they mount attacks against power wielders, as their goal seems the extermination of some or all of them. Angela met her match when she attempted to kill Anji the rabid saiyan, and all that was left of her was a burnt husk of metal. Status: DEAD.
