Anime's with Villain Groups

So I'm looking for series with villain groups (or at least people who act like they are some Boss straight out of a videogame), if possible with some weird bizarre weapons or powers or whatever (and top it off with some cool designs, hopefully each and every one uniue in it's look, it's possible to wear unifroms but still look like different folks instead of pallete swap clones).

I've already seen the following series including these sort of groups:
Trigun - Gung Ho Guns
Ninja Scroll - The 8 Devils of Kimon
Ninja Scroll TV - The Kimon Clan, The Hiruko Clan
The Skull Man - Brain Gear Technical Service S I R K S
Space Adventure Cobra TV & Cobra the Animation - The Guild
Outlaw Star - The Kei Pirates (The Anten 7)
Kurozuka - The Red Imperial Army
Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto - Akki Rasetsu
Speed Grapher - Roppongi Club's Euphorics
Grenadier - The Juttensen
Vampire Hunter D - The Fiend Corps
Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust - The Barbarois, The Marcus Brothers
Afro Samurai - The Empty Seven
Spriggan - Machiner's Platoon
Project ARMS - Egrigori (The Keiths, The Crimson Triad, The X-Army, Mutants)
Fist of the North Star - The ZEED, The GOLAN, The Fang Clan, KING, Ken-Oh's Army (Cassandra Prison Guards), Yuda's Gang, Souther's Army
Fist of the North Star 2 - Heavenly Emperor's Army, Warriors of Asura
Blade of the Immortal - Ittō-ryū, Mugai-ryū
Cutie Honey '73, Cutey Honey Flash, Re: Cutie Honey - Panther Claw
New Cutie Honey - Dolmeck and minions

Series you don't need to name:
Bleach - Espada
Naruto - Akatsuki
Dragonball (Z, GT) - Red Ribbon Army and a whole lot more
One Piece - Cipher Pol No. 9 and more
Inuyasha - Band of Seven
Black Cat - Chronos, Apostles of the Stars
Hellsing - Millennium
Katekyō Hitman Reborn! - Vongola Family (The Varia), Millefiore Family
Full Metal Alchemist - Homunculi
YuYu Hakusho - Four Saint Beasts, Team Toguro
Hunter X Hunter - Spider
Get Backers - The Four Kings of VOLTS, Residents of the Infinity Fortress and more
Rurouni Kenshin - The Oniwabanshū, The Juppongatana, The Six Comrades, The Yaminobu
Kekkaishi - Kokubourou
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi - Ragnarok
Demonbane - The Black Lodge
Marchen Awakens Romance (MAR) - Chess no Koma
Buso Renkin - Homunculus
Basilisk - Kouga Ninja, Iga Ninja
s-CRY-ed - Holy
Soul Eater - Medusa's gang, Arachnophobia
Karas - Mikura

Oh yes to specialise it more, I care little for series where some kind of game rules the world like it's some lifesaving game (Pet/robot trainers [like Pokemon, Digimon or Medabots], Card players [like Yu Gi Oh] or masters of some toys [Beyblade]) and Mecha's or other vehicle focused series.

Sounds like at least most of the chars in Basilisk would fit. 2 groups, leads not villain, but subordinates for sure. Some weird bizarre abilities, and definitely unique chars.

Not sure if it fits your bill but Buso Renkin comes to mind. It's basically Alchemic warriors vs Homunculi (Similar to Full Metal Alchemist) and each of the prominent characters have their unique weapons/powers.

Thanks for reminding me of that series, it was on my too watch list. I heard both this & Ninja Scroll took inspiration of some famous japanese novelist (Who'se ninja ressurection got animated), it seems his novels are full of Ninja Scroll/Basilisk type enemies.

Thanks, I've never even heard of Marchen Awakens Romance (MAR), what is it about? The enemy designs look right up my alley, but the premise about Arm items scare me a bit.

MAR is a fantasy shounen series about a boy summoned into a strange world, in which the Chess Pieces (Chess no Koma) currently operate and rule.
The ARMs are magical items with variety of applications, but mostly used as weapons (in the civil wars and in the War Tournaments). They work much like D. Gray-Man's Innocence's equipped type and their potential grows with the growth of the skills of their owner. Compared to HxH's and Basilisk's villain groups, their usage is fairly less scary, disturbing, and unpredictable (not to say funny, sometimes).

I mean not scare me as disturbing, but more like scare me that it is used like some toys (like say beyblade where everything is based around the game).

It sounded different than Beyblade, but I haven't seen more than 5 eps of Beyblade, too old for this >.<, however, I liked MAR. Anyway, a little spoiler.

2 shounen mecha that are also the best mecha in history:

Gaogaigar - 4 Machine Kings, 31 Primevals
Gaogaigar FINAL - 11 Sol Masters
Gurren Lagann - Spiral army. Antispirals

Soul Eater - Medusa's gang, Arachnophobia
Karas - Mikura

Can't add to much to your list since my list is mainly mecha.

Thanks added to the master list. Kinda forgot about Karas... but Soul Eater I don't really know if it's my stuff, the whole thing with the weapons seems like yu gi oh or something. Nonetheless I shall add it.

The mecha's, I don't know, with high exception. Gurren Lagann is a no, but can you maybe show me some screen of that gaogaigar squad. Is it more the mecha's that have the designs or the pilots also specialised in design?

Anyone know if 009-1 or Darker then Black characters fit my bill?

Blood+ might fit your request. Diva and her "chevaliers" constitute a well-organized group of villains with quite remarkable powers.

One other show you might consider is Monster. The villain has some ties to organized crime groups, though basically he's a loner.

Tokyo Tribe 2...If your list is any true example of your tastes, then this little hidden gem of a Seinen-fighter will floweth your cup over...

Examples:
Spoiler for Groups:

My personal favorite are the Machida Thugs^^...Their leader looks like the rapper "Baby" from Lil Wayne's clique...045 Bulldogs on the other hand are all Snoop-Dogg centric gang-members...If you have any sort of interest in hip-hop, this show is the most relevant in showing that culture from a Japanese perspective that I've ever watched, period...A little more adult, but certainly "shonen" in many instances that you are familiar with in fighter-shows...I never knew about the underbelly of mixed-race Japan until I watched this show, nevermind the gang element of many half-black, half-Japanese kids....Don't worry, it has that BIG BOSS and all the underling fights you crave...

^Wait. Are you serious?

I might check that out myself. It's serious, and not some kind of stereotypical rap culture parody, right?

^It's pretty hardcore, and rather authentic (in-terms of the culture), but it is a fighter-type anime at times, and it's over-the-top sometimes...The first episode is pretty disturbing (Hell a handful of scenes are)...But as far as the gang culture and mixed race kids who are apart of this, it's pretty real...Some people won't even be able to get past ep 1, but it's a pretty damn rare series...I've seen nothing like it when talking about hip-hop culture in Japan...

LMAO, even IF it was a straight parody something tells me you'd watch^^...Cause ain't $hit would be like it...
