It's always the little things that count. So let's talk about the little ones in anime that aren't part of the main cast but mean so much to us fans. If any main character is involved, it be removed. This isn't about the main characters.

The Top Ten

1 Bulma from Dragon Ball Bulma from Dragon Ball Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.

Bulma from the Dragon Ball series. Honestly, this woman deserves more respect. She made the proud and stubborn Saiyan prince Vegeta listen to her. He has come to respect her highly and she should be. She's a sassy woman who doesn't mind slapping anyone if she's upset. She is a genius who can drive or create anything she sets her mind to it. She knows what to do and how to get it done. That's why I personally feel she should be one. - RoseRedFlower

2 Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist Winry Rockbell is a main supporting character of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. A close childhood friend of Edward and Alphonse Elric since their young life in Resembool, she is almost like a sister to the two and essentially their only family. An amateur surgeon and mechanical repair specialist/enthusiast, ...read more.

Winry Rockbell is my favorite character from the Fullmetal Alchemist series. I love this woman. She's funny, quirky, smart and just a likable character. Plus she doesn't end up like one of those childhood friends who don't get the love they always wished for. She actually ends up with Ed. - RoseRedFlower

3 Levi Ackerman - Attack on Titan Levi Ackerman - Attack on Titan Levi Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

A very popular character in the Attack on Titan franchise. A man who's worth ten soldiers, Levi Ackerman. He might seem unemotional but he is one soldier you don't mess with. That and he helped save the main character who knows how many times. - RoseRedFlower

He even has his own OVA series dedicated to his past titled "No Regrets". - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Hell yeah! I can understand why everyone loves Levi so much, and I love him too. - TwilightKitsune

4 Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom

This knucklehead is from Assassination Classroom. He might seem like a no good delinquent but inside he's a sneaky, intelligent assassin in training. He also has some of the best grades in class despite being a trouble maker. - RoseRedFlower

Better than the protagonist to be honest

He's so cool and badass.

5 Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

One of the only other characters in Naruto I like. It was so sad once you hear why he did the things he did and the burden he put on himself. It was a genuine surprise to me and I ended up loving this character. - RoseRedFlower

6 Franken Stein from Soul Eater Franken Stein from Soul Eater

He's an insane doctor who dissects everything, even himself. He's also one of the strongest meisters in this show. With his witty banter to back him up, Stein helped bring the 'soul' to the anime Soul Eater. - RoseRedFlower

7 Grell Sutcliff - Black Butler Grell Sutcliff - Black Butler

Grell Sutcliff from the Black Butler series! He might be a Shinigami but he's fabulous. Whether it's the hopeless chase for Sebastian, the over the top gestures or the fantastic weapon he posses, Grell knew how to make us all laugh. - RoseRedFlower

8 Ryoji Ranka Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club Ryoji Ranka Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club

Haruhi's father is one of my favorite characters. His personality can be fierce yet sympathetic. His life has always been devoted to his family and he was a great addition to the anime. - RoseRedFlower

14 Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

I haven't watched Fullmetal Alchemist yet, but just from a few clips, I can already tell Colonel Roy Mustang deserves respect. Skilled in flame alchemy, charismatic, an effective leader in command, devoted, and a BIT of a womanizer, which provides a bit of some good comic relief, Roy Mustang is an unforgettable supporting character in the FMA franchise. Just watching the fight between him and Envy earned him my admiration for him. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

MSBS You really need to watch FMA - Rue
