Top 10 Anime Swordsmen

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Mugen - Samurai Champloo

Mugen does not have any powers or super human strength, and is still amazingly strong. He's probably the most badass guy on this list. He should be number 6-8 on this list.

The way he fights is pretty badass and more realistic than most of the people on the list since he doesn't have any powers

Can Zorro break dance whilst cutting foes to shreds. I think not.

Mugen's sword style is his own ie.unique u cannot predict his moves that make it interesting

22 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

He has the speed and lightning style which make his sword skills extra beautiful to watch.

His skill with swords are so cool and extreme

Sasuke is the best Naruto character EVER!

For me, Sasuke is more good at ninjutsu and genjutsu

23 Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki is a fictional character and an antihero in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.

After know is zanpakuto name he upgrades his power x150, so with even shikai he can easily kills ichigo the protagonist of bleach, so maybe he is the strongest swordsmen of bleach. - Neandertal17

24 Kisame Hoshigaki - Naruto Kisame Hoshigaki - Naruto

He fought guy and killer bee and still came back alive and he has the most badass sword in all of naruto

These people know nothing about kisame he's to powerful to be here!

Kisame is much more power full an kirito

Samehada was the best sword in any anime but then Misashi Kishimoto had to make it alive and give it teeth but surprisingly that's not the worst thing he did to it. the worst thing he did is he made it betray Kisame and no I am not making this up. - SunGoku

25 Sephiroth - Final Fantasy

To me Sephiroth is way stronger than Cloud and could kill him in an instant. I think he is holding back and preparing Cloud for something stronger to come...or maybe even just playing with Cloud cause there's nothing better to do. He will definitely come back to life even if he dies just as he did in the movie Advent Children. Honestly there is no beating Sephiroth if he fought seriously.

Not saying anything about just how strong Sephiroth is, he's most refined swordsman in all anime I've seen. He delivers swift and extremely strong slashes. He could take on any and even several extremely strong opponents at once

Uh, when did final fantasy became an anime?

26 Orochimaru - Naruto Orochimaru - Naruto Orochimaru is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Not a swordsman ninja who uses a sword there is a differences you people need to understand that just because they use a sword does not make them swordsman

His Snake Sword is awesome - SunGoku

27 Saber - Fate/stay Night Saber - Fate/stay Night Saber is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. She is the the Saber-class Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero and the Saber-class Servant of Shirou more.

She is a great swordsman. She gives the meaning of the word Badass female swordsman. She's also hot and sexy. She doesn't take any crap!

28 Toshiro Hijikata (Gintama)

He is one of the best and most powerful in Gintama, he is amazing with a sword and cut a ball in half when bloodlusted!

29 Kisuke Urahara - Bleach Kisuke Urahara - Bleach

His bleaches kakashi

He is bleaches kakashi I ment

30 Yoh Asakura - Shaman King
31 Hinagiku Katsura - Hayate the Combat Butler Hinagiku Katsura - Hayate the Combat Butler

She really is a good swordsman with that weird ancient sword given to her by Isumi ( and which she has forgotten to return o_O)

32 King Bradley - Fullmetal Alchemist King Bradley - Fullmetal Alchemist

I you took away all the special powers of the top ten Bradley could tak them out faster than he took out that tank.

In my option king Bradley should be on the to 5 list he a badass and very strong

His swordsmanship is simply the best among all the anime characters. He could take down just about anyone in one on one sword fight. Also this guy is the definition of BADASS.

This is the best character here by far! he is simply the best

33 Vergil - Devil May Cry

Vergil is a true and blue badass swordsman.
He refuses to touch guns, and if he should need a projectile, instead launches phantasmal swords.
Though he rarely needs them considering his sheer overwhelming speed and elegance allows him to perfectly catch multiple bullets fired at him along his blade, lie them on the ground, and slice them back without damaging them.

One of the most badass and coolest swordsman.

34 Yamamoto Takeshi - Katekyo Hitman Reborn

My favorite swords man in anime

Another majorly underrated swordsman. Yamamoto is an excellent swordsman, even utilizing two katanas, which for those who don't know are rather top heavy leading to clumsy movement without excellent control, without trouble.
He can also devise skills on the spot, allowing him to overcome more strategic foes.

In my opinion, the #1 swordsman in anime

He is good and a great fighter

6 Miwhawk
8 Bradley

36 Killer Bee - Naruto Killer Bee - Naruto

Killer B is the best! How many other swordsmen can use 8 swords at once, As well as do it flawlessly, While Rapping! Episode 143 of Naruto Shippuden (The Eight Tails Vs Sasuke) Is his highlight Episode, where Sasuke is working for the Akatsuki And his team of 4 Take on Killer B, And B whoops all of them, to a point where half of Sasukes Team have to sacrifce themselves just to try and beat him. I Would recommend you watch the episode, and re write this statement.

Who is killer bee? I wonder who? Anyone answer me? I watched a little about Naruto but I've never heard of his name but I've heard Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata and so on...

Don't like series Naruto. But killer bee is actually a good swordsman, excluding the eight tail mode

I think he is way better swordsman then SASUKE or ANY OTHER CHAracTer in Naruto

37 Sagara Sanosuke - Rurouni Kenshin
38 Meliodas - Nanatsu No Taizai Meliodas - Nanatsu No Taizai

He should deserve 15 or 20th position in strongest Anime characters of all time.

Is the greatest of them all

39 Afro - Afro Samurai

Man afro cool with a blade loved the episode with cyborg afro samurai for me best anime sword fight every.

40 Levi - Attack on Titan Levi - 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.

Definitely can't take down the top ten but at least he should be in the top fifteen! For a human he's really strong!

I can't believe Levi is ranked so low! He invented a new way to handle swords and once speed blitst a 14 meter titan (one of the strongest) while his foot was injured. So fast you could barely see him. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Levi should be at least in the top ten. Just that one moment when he spins up the female titan's arm!

He should be higher. Just that moment he cuts that titan into 10000000000 pieces on his first expedition out of the walls after that monster killed Isabel and Farlan, and when he cut the living out of Annie
