In anime, the scene where the protagonist saves the antagonist is something that is often encountered. Even though the antagonist has done a lot of bad things, it is the duty of a hero to help anyone who needs help.
Sometimes, this also happens the other way around. Even though it is very rare, there are some antagonists in anime who actually save the protagonists, although not infrequently their reasons sound strange or absurd. Starting from Reiner who saved many people from Titan to Esdeath who saved Tatsumi's life, here are five anime antagonists who have saved the protagonist. Check out the following reviews.
1. Reiner saves Connie from Titan (Attack on Titan)
Several episodes before Reiner reveals his identity, Zeke attacks Paradis and one of the Titans manages to enter the tower that is occupied by several members of the Reconnaissance Squad, including Reiner, Bertholdt, Ymir, Connie, and Historia.
When the Titan was right behind Connie and ready to eat Connie, Reiner immediately sacrificed his hand and let the Titan bite his hand, then picked up the Titan and threw it out.
Given that Reiner was just an infiltrator in the Reconnaissance Squad, Reiner could not have done this and let the Titan eat Connie. After all, not long after the incident, Reiner clearly revealed his true identity to Eren.

4. Hisoka helps Gon pass the hunter (Hunter x Hunter) exam
In the Hunter Exam arc , Gon is assigned to take Hisoka's badge so that he can advance to the next stage. Obviously, Gon's obstacles are extremely difficult, considering Hisoka is a good Nen user and a terrible fighter.
Although Gon managed to steal Hisoka's badge at first, Geretta suddenly arrives, immobilizes Gon with his poison, and steals Hisoka's badge from Gon. Then, Hisoka suddenly appears out of nowhere and kills Geretta, and gives back his badge to Gon.
Even though Gon doesn't want Hisoka's help, Hisoka does this only to make Gon owe him, and hopes Gon can pay his debt with a beating. Quite a strange reason, right?
