Top 10 Best Anime Teams

These teams, formed out of necessity or by choice, often represent more than just collective strength. They're a mosaic of individual dreams, backgrounds, and personalities, all converging to achieve shared aspirations.

There's an inherent beauty in watching these anime groups navigate their shared stories. Whether they're striving to save the world, seeking personal redemption, or simply hoping to win a tournament, the dynamics of teamwork form the heart and soul of many series. This theme is so prevalent that it begs the question: among the myriad of teams that anime has introduced us to, which ones truly stand out? Which squads have left you marveling at their resilience, chuckling at their antics, or shedding a tear at their sacrifices?
The Top Ten
1 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 the reasons for joining the Akatsuki.

The Akatsuki are a group of S-ranked criminals. They are led by Pain and have had many members in the past. However, the group is dangerous and pursues terrible plans to achieve their objectives. What is their goal? Do they achieve it? What do they gain from it? Sit through five hundred episodes to find out!

2 Straw Hat Pirates (One Piece)

They are the best! Their bond is really special.

3 State Alchemists (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)

A group of people specialize in alchemy and possess an inherent talent for manipulating matter and energy. These individuals work together tactically and evolve into some of the best anime characters you'll ever encounter.

4 Survey Corps (Attack on Titan)

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

5 Class 3E (Assassination Classroom)

A class is filled with twenty-eight students who are considered to be the lowest of the low, primarily due to low grades or because they caused a lot of trouble. They are constantly bullied by the other students and faculty members. However, Korosensei steps in and helps the class rise to their potential, challenging the system and taking a stand. All twenty-eight students are intriguing and persevere against all odds.

Coolest class of students ever. I wish my middle school experience was like theirs.

6 Anteiku (Tokyo Ghoul)
7 Soul Reapers (Bleach)

The Shinigami are keeping the world safe from evil spirits called hollows. It's basic, yet important. Ichigo was born with the ability to see these spirits after his family was attacked by a hollow. He eventually joins up with other Shinigami to stop the hollows.

8 Z Warriors (Dragon Ball Z)

This entry ranks a bit lower on this list due to the perceived ineffectiveness of some of the Z Fighters in subsequent sagas. After the Frieza Saga, a significant portion of the group, mostly the humans, become less impactful. Nonetheless, I am fond of these characters. Their dynamics and the threats they face seem palpable and challenging.

9 Homunculi (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)
10 Team Rocket (Pokémon)
The Contenders
11 00 Cyborgs (Cyborg 009)
12 Team Urameshi (Yu Yu Hakusho)

Team Urameshi is led by Yusuke Urameshi. Most of these characters initially despised Urameshi, but over time, they unite as a team. Each member possesses a unique set of ideals and strengths, aiding them as they aim to win the Dark Martial Arts Competition.

Easily the best progression and chemistry of a team in media history.

13 Blade Breakers (Beyblade)
14 Seven Deadly Sins (The Seven Deadly Sins) The Seven Deadly Sins is an anime television series based on a Japanese fantasy manga series of the same name.

I like them. They're all cool and likable, and they have a fun dynamic.

15 Team Natsu (Fairy Tail)

OMG! I love this team all the way! (I don't really like Lucy, though.) Fairy Tail is a great anime and deserves more love and attention!

They care for their friends more than anything in the world.

You gotta have the tournament team instead. Natsu, Gray, Erza, Gajeel, and Laxus were badass.

16 Magical Girls (Puella Madoka Magica)

These five tenacious females form an exceptional group of magical girls. Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are ordinary girls who encounter Kyubey, who grants them powers to become magical girls. However, it becomes evident that their lives as magical girls are not always filled with rainbows and sunshine. They must confront numerous daunting challenges.

17 Band of the Hawk (Berserk)
18 Lagoon Company (Black Lagoon)

Okajima Rokuro's life changes forever when he travels to Southeast Asia and encounters a group opposing the corrupt Thai city, Roanapur. This group is known as the Lagoon Company. It is led by Dutch and includes the gunslinger Revy and Benny, the electronics specialist.

19 Cell 13 (Nanbaka)
20 Ame Orphans (Naruto Shippuden)

To me, the best trio in Naruto, with no in-fighting or drama. Go-getter Yahiko, reflective Nagato, and faithful Konan just worked.

21 Black Knights (Code Geass)
22 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. These are very interesting characters, each with their own personalities and ways of working together. They learn to resonate well with each other and help stop the kishin.

23 Espada (Bleach)
24 Yorozuya (Gintama)
25 Quinx Squad (Tokyo Ghoul)
