Top Ten Anime Teams

A lot of anime have teams or squads that work together. There groups who work together in order to achieve their own goals. But who has the best team? I'll leave some options down below and the rest is up to you.

The Top Ten

1 The Akatsuki (Naruto Shippuden) The Akatsuki (Naruto Shippuden)

The reason I added the Akatsuki instead of Team 7 is because I found the Akatsuki more enjoyable to watch. I loved how in later installments we get to see their past and reasoning for joining the Akatsuki. The Akatsuki are a group of S ranked criminals. They're lead by Pain and have had many members in the past before. However the group is dangerous and has terrible plans in order to accomplish their goal. What is their goal? Do they achieve it? What do they gain from it? Sit through five hundred episodes to see! >:D - RoseRedFlower

Akatsuki is the best through there are some characters who are stronger than the members of it but, when it comes in a team matter, they are the most awesome.

2 Class 3E (Assassination Classroom) Class 3E (Assassination Classroom)

They have more person

A class full of twenty eight students who are considered to be lowest of the low. Mostly for low grades or because they caused a lot of trouble. They're constantly bullied by the other students and faculty members. However, Korosensei comes in and helps the class rise to their potential. Slapping the system in the face and making a stance. All twenty eight students are interesting and work well against all odds. - RoseRedFlower

Coolest class of students ever. Wish my middle school experience was like there's.

3 The Alchemists (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) The Alchemists (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)

A group of people who specialize in alchemy and are able to inherent talent for manipulating matter and energy. The group of people who work together in tactical ways and grow into some of the best anime characters you'll ever see. - RoseRedFlower

4 Straw Hat Pirates (One Piece) Straw Hat Pirates (One Piece)

They are the best! Their bond is really special.

This team is overrated.

Why wasn’t this included? - Undistinguished

Because I'm only allowed ten options at the beginning and I like these teams a bit more than the Straw Hat Pirates in my opinion. - RoseRedFlower

5 Team Urameshi (Yu Yu Hakusho) Team Urameshi (Yu Yu Hakusho)

Team Urameshi is lead by Yusuke Urameshi. Most of these characters hated Urameshi from the beginning but slowly come together to be a team. they each have their own set of ideals and strengths. Which help them as they try to win Dark Martial Arts Competition. - RoseRedFlower

6 The Z Warriors (Dragonball Z) The Z Warriors (Dragonball Z)

No better team up

This one's a little low on this list because of how useless some of the Z Fighters are after certain sagas. After the Freiza Saga, a good portion of the group (mostly humans) aren't really that useful. However, I do like these characters. Their dynamics together and the challenges they face feel like real threats. - RoseRedFlower

7 The Survey Corps (Attack on Titan) The Survey Corps (Attack on Titan)

Yes I know this one is low but it did manage to make it on the list. Their job it basically titan combat, expansion in territory and studying the strange creatures. While they have made some great strives, they haven't exactly reclaimed the lost land yet. The manga is still going so we'll see just how far the Survey Corps can go. - RoseRedFlower

8 The 00 Cyborgs (Cyborg 009) The 00 Cyborgs (Cyborg 009)
9 Team Rocket (Pokémon) Team Rocket (Pokémon)
10 The Magical Girls (Puella Madoka Magica) The Magical Girls (Puella Madoka Magica)

These five small yet tough females are a marvelous group of magical girls. Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are regular girls who stumble across Kyubey. Who grants them powers to become magical girls. However, you can see it's not all rainbows and sunshines in this anime. And the magical girls have to face many tough challenges. - RoseRedFlower

The Contenders

11 The Blade Breakers (Beyblade) The Blade Breakers (Beyblade)
12 The Lagoon Company (Black Lagoon) The Lagoon Company (Black Lagoon)

Okajima Rokuro's life changes forever when he goes to South East Asia when he comes across a group fighting against the corrupt Thai city called Roanapur. This group is called the Lagoon Company. Its led by Dutch and has gunslinger Revy and Benny the electronics specialist. - RoseRedFlower

20 Maka's Team (Soul Eater) Maka's Team (Soul Eater)

Maka's team members consist of her weapon partner Soul Eater, Black*Star, his weapon Tsubaki, Death the kid and Liz and Patty. Very interesting characters with their own personalities and ways of working together. They learn to resonate well with each other and help stop the kishin. - RoseRedFlower

Team Gurren was good too but this team conquered more. - Undistinguished
