I went with Beryl and Galaxia. They were certainly the more intelligent villains compared to the rest.

Death Busters 4 life P-:

to me they are the apex of SM enemies

however I love Beryl, Nehelenia, Amazon Trio and Quartet, the Ayakashi sisters, the entire sailor animamates including Galaxia

but hands down Death Busters is the best to me

This poll is goofy!
Spoiler: show
I'm pretty sure polls have limited numbers of options, but like, why has Rubeus (or "Rubius") got his own spot, when the Shitennou are one spot? And then Queen Beryl (or rather Queen "Beyrl". Shouldn't it have been Queen Berry?) is a separate spot, so we're not lumping together by season- meaning you'd need each villain represented separately, or at least leader separate from their minion group.

Any way you slice it, that definitely leaves out Prince Diamande/Demande/Dimando/Mister Magic Diamond. And Esmeraude (and Saphir, who was at least some sort of villain in the manga if not the anime where he was basically the heroic paperwork guy for the Black Moon).

And it definitely omits the Amazon Trio, Amazoness Quartet, Nehellenia. And the Sailor Animamates since you just said "Sailor Galaxia".

And then for some reason Death Busters is one item. Presumably that includes Professor Tomoe and Kaolinite, and maybe Hotaru and Mistress 9, but does it include the Witches 5??

If this poll was optimized for inconsistent, bafflesome formatting, then kudos for the degree to which it is so.

There's also the bigger philosophical question of whether we're counting 'best' villain in terms of sympathy, effectiveness/scariness, or the ever-vague arbitrary coolness factor. Or just flat out going for a single choice "which one is your personal favorite when you consider all of those factors at once (knowing that the sort of person you are will determine whether you favor on the basis or sympatheticness or scariness since those sort of pull in opposite directions)".

I therefore reject your nonsensical poll by which I mean I voted for the Shitennou because my soul is contractually obligated to do so and substitute my own nonsensical listing system. These are all only talking about the '90s anime versions (the manga versions haven't left enough of an impression for me to really rate, except to point out what a ridiculous chump Nephrite was in that version).

Tiger's Eye (at least he had a good-ish reason, dude was an ordinary tiger who probably got this job, and his human sapience, like, two months ago)

- Least interesting / least likeable major villains:
Rubeus, Badiane

- Most hated villain: None, I like pretty much everybody in this show. Except maybe a few of the one-off randos who aren't really villains anyway, like Mamoru's sucky college 'friends' or that rich jerkish middle aged lady who yells at the cashier and waits for the guy with the soup or whatever. Yes, I like Rubeus and Badiane a lot more than those characters.

Why even have a poll when you limit the options to the primary villain of season 1, the miniboss team of season 1, the miniboss for the second half of season 2, the organization for as a whole for season 3, and the main baddie of season 5. Seems pretty random and without any rhyme or reason. Rubeus gets his own slot but not Demande or Emerald? No Ail/En? Or the 4 sisters? Or the Animates or Mistress 9 or Witches 5? This poll has me so lost

Yeah, this is, frankly, the jankiest poll I've seen on here in a long time.

A better poll might have simply been "Which season had the best villain(s)?" and then in the comments we could all say what specific villain or villain group from that season was our favorite.

For me... In terms of whom I feel is the most villainous/evil? I'd have to say Wiseman/Death Phantom. He's the creepiest Big Bad in my opinion, and not even his goofy voice in Crystal could change my feelings about him. In terms of whom I feel is the most interesting? I'd say it's a tie between Queen Beryl (more so where the manga and the live action series are concerned) and the Four Sisters (where the 90s anime is concerned). I feel like their backstories and character arcs were really compelling and I felt the most for them out of all the villains in the series. (Unless you count Mnemosyne and Lethe as villains, which I don't really given their circumstances.) And as for whom I feel is simply the most entertaining? I'd have to give it to my hilarious, sassy mean girls Esmeraud and Mio Kuroki!

90's anime = Beryl. Sailor Moon forgave most of the villains, but she didn't forgive Beryl --Beryl destroyed everything she loved and cherished in the era of the Moon kingdom and, therefore, things were personal.

I always found this line of thinking odd, especially with Galaxia killing off SM’s guardians, her boyfriend and basically killing off Chibiusa by the death of the latter.

I think that 90s Wiseman was arguably the worst, he manipulated so many people for his gain and basically mind raped a child.

Galaxia, because I love her outfit the best. Yeah, I know it's a shallow reason, but hey, the Stars arc is terrible and she was one of the few saving graces.

I'd vote for Beryl If she didn't have that cryngy aspect about her backstory. The guy she liked didn't like her back, so she decided to kill everyone :|

Beryl was redeemed in the Sailor Moon PC Engine game along with the Shitennou all though that game has questionable canonicity.
