Top 10 Anime Swordsmen

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Shichika Yasuri - Katanagatari
62 Seijuro Hiko XIII - Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai X

Let's face it. If you guys think highly of Kenshin this guy may as well tank the whole list while STILL being a human. In a nutshell he could probably take on Kenshin (in his battousai days to boot), Shishio Makoto, Enishi, AND Hajime Saito at the same time. The author himself even pretty much said the only reason he doesn't appear more in the series is because he is simply TOO OP. If he was there all the conflicts would be over in such a hamfisted manner that the whole story would get dull very quickly. They had to make him face a GIANT who is the size of damn BUILDINGS with a sword of eqal size swinging down at him. His response? "I'm going to block this with ease. Then I will wreck him and give a speech on the true nature of the martials arts and being a martial artist." and the ONLY reason Fuji survived was because he flipped his sword.

63 Crono - Chrono Trigger

Crono have everything to be the best swordsman : Superhuman strength, speed, durability, reactions, agility and stamina, lightning/holy magic, immunity to space/time warping, resistant to holy/lightning attacks and fire hotter than the core of the earth.

64 Peko Pekoyama (Super Danganronpa 2) Peko Pekoyama (Super Danganronpa 2)

She isn't called the ultimate swordswoman for nothing. She's definitely one of the most badass characters in the danganronpa series and should definitely be ranked higher on this list. You want proof? Check out her execution.

Well, she doesn't have a superhuman power. She lives in the world we live. Her powers aren't exaggerated like other Shounen characters in the Top 10. Thus, she doesn't stand on a chance against them.
However, she's pretty strong compared to normal humans in the world without magic or power-ups. She's the personal hitman of the heir of the biggest yakuza organization which means she's super-talented despite being only a human. She can kill Monokuma's army with no effort and dodge bullets with only an ordinary sword made of metal.
She's both strong and realistic unlike typical anime characters (especially the ones in Top 10). That's why she has to be higher on this list. - Tuana123

65 Syaoran - Cardcaptor Sakura
66 Len Tao - Shaman King
67 Kurogane - Tsubasa Chronicles

Kurogane is a strong swordsman who killed momo like 3 times

68 Kisshu - Tokyo Mew Mew
69 Kyo - Samurai Deeper Kyo

Kyo can easily defeat Zoro and Dracule Mihawk.

THIS GUY ISN'T GOOD this no.64 is enough for him

Kyo, I honestly believe is both stronger and more developed than Ichigo. If SDK were more popular, so would Demon Eyes Kyo.

70 Gilgamesh - Fate Stay Night Gilgamesh - Fate Stay Night Gilgamesh is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Tokiomi Tohsaka and a secondary antagonist during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero. He reprises his role as a secondary antagonist during the Fifth more.

He is not a sword if he is not wielding the sword himself not a swordsman

Gate of Babylon. Enough said. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

71 Nanashi - Sword of the Stranger

He is best samurai I've ever seen; he is quick, strong, agile and skilled swordsman. I guess he could beat every single one of anime characters in swordfight except superhumans like Date Masamune from Sengoku Basara.

Nanashi should be right after Kenshin.He does not have any superhuman powers,but his skills are off the charts.He defeated everyone in the movie after running a whole lot of way,while he was tired.Imagine what he could do if he was not tired!

72 Goemon Ishikawa - Lupin the 3rd

So accurate and fast his duels usually only last several seconds

73 Proto Man - Mega Man

I saw this list and was shocked that Protoman. EXE wasn't on the list! I mean, in the manga of Megaman, he was granted the Murumasa blade by Serenade, the Ruler of the Undernet! Megaman couldn't even see him when they first fueled, so I think Protoman deserves a spot on this list.

74 Kagura Mikazuchi - Fairy Tail Kagura Mikazuchi - Fairy Tail
75 Konno Yuuki - Sword Art Online Konno Yuuki - Sword Art Online Yuuki Konno is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

She should be number one, she even beat Kirito.

No one in sword art online can beat her

Yuuki was said in the series to be the best swords woman in ALO. How is she not in the top five? She beat all. Her challengers, including Kirito and Asuna.

76 Shungiku Koikawa - Mushibugyo

This guy won't stop till he turns a person into pieces.

77 Suigetsu - Naruto

He deserves to be somewhere on this list. As well as being able to dish out amazing sword attacks he also can't be hit from them because he's made of Water! A ninja who uses a giant sword and is made out of water.

Next to Killer Bee, Suigetsu is one of my favorite Narutoverse swordsman. He's made of water, people! And have you seen his sword! It's huge! To be able to successfully wield a giant sword like that... It's gotta take some skill.

Why is a attack on Titan character above him. Naruto>attack on titan

78 Genkishi - Katekyo Hitman Reborn
79 Alibaba Saluja - Magi Alibaba Saluja - Magi


80 Shana - Shakugan No Shana Shana - Shakugan No Shana
