The most badass character in One Piece. I really wanna see his real power - smill

2 Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom

This guy is a literal savage, & not just words. He's skilled in combat, & is calm while fighting. He's a main character as well, plus his hair color is red, a loved color. - Qryzx

I'm slightly biased because I'm in LOVE with him, but he's totally awesome. Though I question if his hair is red or hot pink...

I feel like any other hair color would ruin his look, am I right mates?

He's my favourite red haired character!

3 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail. Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. more.

Erza is the best no matter what hair color - Fandom_Lover

Hey how is Sasori at the top.I know he's good but still nagato and erza are much better than him.

Obviously! However I am triggered that you spelt Fairy Tail wrong :X

4 Sasori - Naruto Shippuden Sasori is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Sasori...Don't get me started. Amazing backstory, epic, and an amazing villain

He's downright gorgeous! And his backstory is so sad. It always makes me want to cry. It's sad he dies.

8 Himura Kenshin - Rurouni Kenshin Himura Kenshin, known as Kenshin Himura in the English-language anime dubs, is a fictional character and protagonist of the Rurouni Kenshin manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

Kenshin is one of my favorite anime main characters of all time! He is one of the most heroic, battling his inner demons and struggles every day as he does his best to do what’s right! Plus the life action incarnation is the best live action anime adeptation ever! Rurouni Kenshin will always be a top anime for me!
