I've always preferred villains who can barely be called such, with sympathetic points of view, often very reasonable goals, and some level of honor o standards. Someone who will make te domanda if you're really even rooting for the right side. Someone who will make te think about what it is that makes one side right. Someone who can expand your worldview, give te a new take on morality, and make te consider philosophy te never thought about before. A perfect example exists in one of my absolute preferito anime, Shinsekai Yori, but even naming that example could spoil the story.
from my point of perspective......... Heroes wont be born without villains like i said Nothing makes your hero più heroic than a worthy opponent.
So don’t shortchange your villain. Spend every bit as much time crafting him as te do your lead character, if te want your story to work.
i like villains 1) who are unstoppable........ 2) who can defeat an entire army alone........ 3) who see the world from his o her point of views......... 4) who have his.her morals 5) who Try something revolutionary 6) who is worthy enough opponent to make your hero look good 7) who is clever and accomplished enough that people must lend him begrudging respect 8) who has many of the same characteristics of the hero, but they’re misdirected 9) who should occasionally be kind, and not just for show 10) who can be merciless, even to the innocent 11) who is persuasive 12) who stop at nothing to get what he wants 13) who he’s proud 14) who is deceitful

I wrote an articolo about this on the random club if te want to check it out and drop a comment. TL;DR there are several different ways to write a good villain, but just like any well written character, the villain has to be a well rounded and meaningful character. A good villain both makes te understand their point of view, and furthers the message of the story
