Sliver is a classic example of an anti-hero. Through Kelly's eyes, we learn about the supercorporations, and we're led to believe that these supercorporations developed a dystopian oligarchal nation. A classic hero would attempt to dismantle these supercorporations, but Sliver is not only apathetic about the supercorporations, he actively helps one.

He wasn't an anti hero because all his actions were justified.

I think his actions of wanting to kill Ancarn were justified. I also feel that his job for World, Inc. as an assassin was also justified. I don't think that Sliver realized that things could be different. Once he did, he changed his ways, and I think that makes him a hero in the end. After all, he did save the shredders and Kelly.
