The Top Ten
1 Shawn Froste

He's my favorite. Ever since the beginning, his personality has been shown to be very mysterious, and his issues with his 'other self' made him a very unique and the most interesting character among everyone else. I mean, come on, the entire third season was about him, and his backstory was also very touching, through which he earned a lot of respect from viewers. His character development was shown very naturally when Axel helped him out of his trauma. I was happy for him when he overcame his split personality disorder, but somehow, I still miss the old, hot, and cold Shawn. Don't get me wrong, his shots were really cool, especially Eternal Blizzard. So yeah, Shawn/Fubuki for life.

2 Axel Blaze

For me, Axel Blaze (Gouenji Shuuya) is the best player in the show Inazuma Eleven. Everybody knows that Axel is the greatest striker in Inazuma Eleven. Even though he is weak at defending, he has scored the most goals in the show. He is not only great as a forward, but he is also excellent at controlling the ball, dribbling, assisting, and sportsmanship. Being a good brother also makes him the best player in Inazuma Eleven, because greatness is not determined by skills alone.

3 Arion Sherwind

Tenma is the best character in Inazuma Eleven and also one of the best characters in anime history. His passion for soccer is as profound as his love for music. As you know, music is the most divine of all arts. It can't be explained or needs to be understood. Tenma's love for soccer is simply experienced, and his feelings are his own, with complete freedom. No wonder Pegasus evolves in every match. Saying he's like a god is not an exaggeration. He just plays with a soccer ball in every series, and there's no question that he's the best player in Inazuma Eleven if you watch his ending moment.

4 Fidio Ardena

When you are younger, you usually go crazy about strikers like Axel. However, remember, Axel can only perform incredible shooting techniques and has just adequate field play (we only see him excel in field play during the Epsilon Prime game). When you grow older, you start to realize that Fideo is amazing in both offense and defense, with amazing field play, and is actually much better than our biased minds want to make us think. I used to be a big Axel fan, but now I can say that Fideo is the best player as he can perform amazing feats and brings out the best in everyone.

5 Yukimura Hyouga

Just look, he gained 1% of the votes. He probably needed to be on the Raimon team.

6 Kevin Dragonfly

Hot-tempered but great. Once he gets to know people, he becomes incredibly nice and kind.

7 Jude Sharp

I think he is the best player in Inazuma Eleven. He is good at everything in soccer except goalkeeping. He is the best game strategist in this anime. He is far greater than the other players when it comes to dribbling and ball control, and he is great at assisting and defending. With this, he is proved to be the greatest player in Inazuma Eleven.

Best character there ever is on this show. If it weren't for Jude, Raimon would have lost in the tournament, as they wouldn't have been able to become in sync again. He deserves to be 1st, not 4th.

8 Ibuki Munemasa

Coolest goalkeeper ever. Mark may be a main character, but Ibuki has the coolest goalkeeping techniques.

Great character, amazing techniques, and badass design. Pretty much what Endou should have been.

He is the coolest goalkeeper ever. He is the strongest goalkeeper ever, except for Mark, Rococo, and Darren.

9 Mark Evans

In my opinion, he is the second-best character, just after Jude. At the beginning, he seems very immature, but throughout the seasons, he becomes more mature and shows seriousness. We all saw him get married to Nelly in Go. He shows a lot of protectiveness towards his most innocent friends, such as Shawn and Xavier, and he is an excellent goalkeeper. Even in all other roles, with just a little training, he's better than most.

Mark Evans is my favorite character out of everything in the whole world. He is brilliant and taught me how to have determination. I personally think he should be number 1, with Axel in second. Mark is clearly the strongest goalkeeper in Inazuma Eleven and simply has the best personality. Just my opinion. Love ya, Mark Evans.

10 Raimon Natsumi
The Contenders
11 Kageyama Reiji

Absolute genius. He creates many players such as Jude Sharp and Fudo. He has a special ability to create players with uniqueness and is a mastermind of the game. Leading Royal Academy and having such a good coach is unpredictable.

12 Erik Eagle

Erik Eagle is the best midfielder in the entire Inazuma Eleven series, according to me. He is known as the midfield magician for a reason. He is the best dribbler in the entire series. The USA could have beaten Inazuma Japan if Erik was there. Sadly, he had an operation. He is the best!

Erik is awesome. His skill is unbelievable. He is the best dribbler. Sadly, his team lost in the FFI because he was not there.

The best player in the Inazuma Eleven series.

13 Hakuryuu
14 Darren LaChance

Darren is a childish one, indeed, but look at his determination! He managed to master God Hand, Majin the Hand, and Mugen the Hand, which Mark couldn't master! He is a little sensitive, as he couldn't bear much when Scotty and the others made fun of him so that he could learn "Fiend Hand." Otherwise, he is a nice young boy with a cheeky voice and good behavior.

15 Domon Asuka
16 Jack Wallside

He is heavy, good for your defense, bad for your scales.

17 Tori Vanguard

Amazing girl! Epic tomboy! We share the same personality. "I wanna stay with Raimon! Mark and the others are gonna beat them, and I feel like they're the only ones doing anything at all!"

18 Fei Rune

He reminds me of a cute little bunny who sometimes shows you a tough side.

He is like a stuffed toy. I want to squish him.

I like the character development.

19 Endou Daisuke
20 Xavier Hunter

Xavier loved his father, Mr. Schiller, and hurt himself to save him, although Schiller was just using him for his plan and had no affection towards him as a son. This shows what a nice kid he was. Despite this, he is good friends with Mark and others and supports his team members well. He has a nice personality and is one of my favorites.

He is out of the Top 5, but he's a good character. His shots are powerful, and he is very innocent and friendly. But at 13/14, he still needs his big sister to protect and defend him (not a bad thing, but strange).

21 Nathan Swift

He's my favorite character. He's kind, competitive, and really cares about his friends. For example, when he left the athletics club to help Mark, it showed his caring nature. He's really cool, the fastest on the team, and his moves are awesome. However, he's insecure and gets overwhelmed under too much pressure. I cried when I first watched the episode where he left the team years ago. I could keep talking for hours about how and why I love him, but I'll stop here.

He was originally from the athletics club but quickly learned and developed his soccer skills. He's been with Raimon from the beginning and was more dedicated to the soccer club than several of the original seven members.

22 Byron Love

A threatening villain with amazing abilities. God Knows is one of the most iconic shots in the entire series and absolutely beautiful. Heaven's Time fits nicely with the theme and offers a satisfying ability. This, combined with character development and a redemption arc, makes for an amazing character.

Genuinely one of the most subtly compelling characters in the series. We see him go from a quite literally god-like final boss to an ally on the path to redemption, to a friendly rival who (let's be real) could have beaten Inazuma Japan, to an adult playing the role of a hero to the Kirkwood students.

Then, in the Ares timeline, we see his struggles to redeem himself in his own eyes before getting the spot in Inazuma Japan he deserves. Any scene with him in it is always memorable. On top of this, he has a brilliant design and moves to match his spectacle (Heaven's Time, God Knows Impact, Chaos Break, and Air on G String to name a few). Besides, the Greek mythology influences make him even more unique among his teammates outside of Zeus.

23 Tsurugi Kyousuke

Victor is a natural. His kicks are super powerful, and he likes Axel! Yay! Plus, he is caring toward Arion (Tenma) and his brother. He is quiet most of the time, and that's what I like about him.

He's such a mature boy. He knows how to control his temper and is a real soccer lover.

His moves are all cool. The dark element, combined with the animation, is fantastic.

24 Shindou Takuto

Although he did cry a lot, I feel he is a great leader and also a great musician!

25 Jordan Greenway

Midorikawa is an amazing character. He is a nice person who always supports his friends (the nearest example is the Outer Code episode of Sun Garden). He has a happy personality and nice quotes. A plus is that his Reize hairstyle looks like ice cream. He simply deserves more than 17th place.

He overcame a lot and had huge character development! It's a shame the writers got rid of him during the FFI series, though. He's one of my favorite characters. He and Mark (Endou) have very similar drives to be good at soccer, but sadly, that wasn't shown much on the show.
