I have always been a fan of the antagonist that's not always clear. When they're doing what seems evil but for a good reason (whether it's good to them or good in the long run for everyone). Like, for an example from one of my stories that isn't written yet, the antagonist nearly destroys a village to get a cure for their sick friend. It seems evil, but its also good, and he would honestly go back and help the village rebuild! He just did it because they thought he was evil just by the way he looked.

This story just got a plot, so it's on my mind.

I also like the fun-loving villains. The ones who just seem to love causing trouble, and you kind of don't want to defeat them because you want to see what else they can think up. A good example of this is Discord, from the first two episodes of the second season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
