Top Ten Coolest Anime and Manga Characters

These are the top ten coolest anime/manga characters.
The Top Ten
1 Vegeta - Dragon Ball Z Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vegeta is the coolest character ever in Dragon Ball Z, he's so powerful and his arrogant personality makes him strangely likeable. Go Vegeta

Vegeta is the coolest character in DBZ, GT, Super and probably DB if he was in it.

He's the coolest, sexiest, hottest, and most badass character in dbz.

He's the sexiest, hottest, badass and very smart. I love his pride as the prince of saiyan. the best prince in anime so far

2 Itachi Uchiha - Naruto series Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

His style with the akatsuki is unreal . His look with the stretch marks make him look cool without other conditions. He is calm , very wise with all of his quotes . His mangekyou has the coolest look . His susanoo looks the best . The way he uses amaterasu is badass . He made crows cool and popular . And finally his story surpasses anything in anime . Killing everybody u care about , besides your brother , who you torture for his own good and die for your brother and for the people of the village , that hates you . Itachi Uchiha is the definition of cool .

If someone murders their family for a mission, watch out. He's a badass. He can use his eyes to summon black flames and cast illusions to mess people up, summon a susanoo (a giant made of chakra). He's the most badass charecter in Naruto and should definitely be higher on this list.

Well everyone knows this guy's all knows strength. He's just a guy. Well in my opinion he should be top 11 but nope there's no top eleven

Cooler than Sasuke (who is immature and deluded and cold hearted) yet the kindest character in Naruto.

3 L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

He taught me that weirdeness can be a type of charm too! He's my favorite anime male character!

He made weird not just be normal , but cool and badass .

PFFT how is this not on the list?

He is badass... At eating

4 Roronoa Zoro Roronoa Zoro, nicknamed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Bruh, just LOOK at his pic. If that's not the definition of badass, I don't know WHAT is.

I like the way he fights

Best of the best

Zoro for the win

5 Levi Ackerman - 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. He accompanies the main protagonists in the second half of season 1. His most notable feature is being "Humanity's strongest".

Always annoyed , looks always angry , looks badass , always calm , cares about his comrades more than himself , being short still by far the most skilled . Levi , the fictional character , who has more fangirls than any celebrity (except some)

All my friend's conversations are about Levi. There is ten different Levi Ackerman fan clubs in my school. For Halloween almost everyone in my neighborhood were dressed as Levi, and were doing fabulous kicks around the block. Levis, Levis everywhere (it was beautiful). Levi is so chill and he is if bad ass was a person. Even saying his name is cool, I could say it one million times and wouldn't get tired of it. Levi Ackerman x 1,000,000

This guy is chill but at the same time will not give up on his comrades. He has a plan and he is not afraid to use it! I personally think that is pretty cool.

He's intimidating, but he's loyal to his comrades. He's not perfect, so it gives him a more "realistic" characterization. He's pretty cool in my opinion.

6 Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Trunks is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Why wasn't he added before? He's the 3rd coolest DBZ character after Vegeta and Piccolo and the smartest kid.

7 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Goku,s an okay guy he never gives up no matter how strong the enemy is he really is stubborn in a good way he was excited when he was about to fight lord beerus a God of destruction obviously he didn't win but he still didn't give up he will fight to the death to protect his family that,s the nice thing about him

He's naive and innocent, but on the battlefield he's the most badass and formidable being in the entire world. Just look at his SSJ3 appearance with all those sparkling lightnings, majestic hair and cool face! He's the kindest friend but is also the most dangerous enemy ever.

Because Goku is so naive and innocent that people keep forget how badass and cool he can become when he gets serious in fights? When he's angry, his super saiyan mode looks really cool and formidable; not to mention his badass SSJ3 transformation as well

How is he so low. When he fights and become a super Saiyan he is the coolest guy in universe. When he fought vegehe was aewsome.

8 Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki is a fictional character and an antihero in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.
9 Aizen - Bleach
10 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Was actually crazy in shippuden , not that cool . But became unreally cool in Boruto , calm , fast , cold hearted . But the most intresting fact about him is that whenever anyone , who faces Sasuke , even it would be Goku , they would get annoyed trying to kill him .

Sasuke and Itachi are the only characters in Naruto that makes me keep watching it. Honestly I don't care about the other characters. He isn't annoying, he isn't useless, and he doesn't care about anyone. Cool, calm, and keeps moving forward to accomplish his goal.

I've watched Naruto since 2005 and have never found Sasuke to be cool. He's an unloving, unlovable, unreasonable, stuck-up ingrate who gives everyone the cold shoulder. His decisions are colossal blunders. The very opposite of cool.

Sasuke is the eye candy, cool strong guy of the show who played a great role in captivating the interest of the viewers.

The Contenders
11 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa 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. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest more.

She is the first female character that is bad-ass...

The coolest female character ever!

Really, this is the 1st time I saw a girl in top 10!

Mikasa should be WAY higher on the list.

12 Sanji - One Piece Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, as well as the former sous chef of the Baratie. He is also the third son of the Vinsmoke Family, thus making him more.

He is the coolest in one piece... he is a bit less strong than others but is strong, flirter, cool, badass, stylish and every thing a character should be

Everything about him is so cool. The way he talks, the way he dresses, the way he fights, the way he smokes, the way he looks, the way he cooks, etc

The way he respects and treats women... this guy is the best!

He is the full package

13 Kakashi Hatake - Naruto Kakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. In the story, Kakashi is the teacher of Team 7, consisting of the series' primary characters, Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno.

The king himself . Calm, smart and kind. Being tortured by life , still didn't go mad and join the darkness . And his style is exceptional , still till this day he is cospalyed by thousands .

This whole list seems preposterous. For starters, Might Guy? Really? His whole character is based upon being outshown by Kakashi in a "cool-factor" kind of way. I hate to be one of those people who does/says this, but Kakashi should definitely be above him! I don't want to push Kakashi onto you people, but I do want you to think about this list a little bit. Are these people really "cool"? Or are they just your favorite characters?

Kakashi is the definition of cool.1st Sasuke,2nd Itachi,3rd Kakashi.

His mask makes Him super cool. He is cool. Sasuke first, kakashi second and itachi third

14 Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop

Goku higher than Spike? Gift

Embodies "cool" to a tee.

15 Guts - Berserk
16 Gaara - Naruto Gaara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is the jinchuuriki of the one-tailed shukaku and can control sand that is stored in his gourd.

The evil who turned good . His story says it all , was the definition , turned to a broken hero

He sure is cool

Gaara is scary

17 Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

He might not be the coolest but it's his personality is what makes him ace for the top. He is the one who probably can beat Naruto and Ichigo. He cares more for his friends than Naruto and Ichigo probably does. What do you mean didn't do any hard work? He did! Tons too. Eating the devil fruit only gave him powers, that doesn't mean he doesn't have to train to learn how to use it.

Whoever said Luffy just ate a fruit and "instantly" got stronger, that doesn't mean anything. You guys are probably a 7 year old that just assumes One piece isn't as good as any other anime you watch. What if you ate a fruit? Would you instantly get stronger? No! You have to learn how to use and control it. Ichigo only needs to swing is sword and yell "Bankai! " Naruto, he trained, but I still think he isn't as good as a ninja.

Perhaps his personality suits his clothes because he certainly doesn't understand the ninja dressing code because what ninja wears "orange" when fighting? Including real ...more

For those saying that luffy "just ate a fruit and instantly got stronger" please watch more of one piece. When his a child his grandpa who is considered to be the hero of marines trained him, not just training, trainings that are to extreme for a child( maybe 8-10 yrs old I forgot) like what you say?

Being thrown to the forest alone at night, tied to a balloon to sky, fighting wild animals (tigers, lion, etc)
Being thrown to a bottomless pit and more

And more if you watch more of OP a lot of character who ate the devil fruits doesn't got strong because they don't have tranings or don't know how to use their power and we're defeated easily

One guy who knows when to stay cool under fire and when to heat things up quite the notch. Love how straightforward he is. His fun loving nature, simplicity and fierce loyalty are what make him the much adored crowdpuller.

Hmph. First of all, I hate pirates but what makes Luffy I really like is that his powers (and mostly pranks! ) are awesome besides the other pirates

18 Ichigo Kurosaki - Bleach Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

The gruff and rebellious attitude, yet caring side, make Ichigo so cool. He has a cool and unique sense of street style, plus he just exudes badass.

I just can't think Pokemons are cooler than him. He's just so cool and funny and smart and caeta. And I'm not a groupie. I just say that Ichigo is one of the best character I ever seen.

Sasuke is not dumbass. He is on number one because he deserves it. His attitude and looks both are cool. Maybe this guy attitude is cool but he looks gay

He is the coolest hero of all time... Way better than that dumbass sasuke.

19 Byakuya Kuchiki

He's plainly awesome great at strength and should get a higher position

He should be number 6

20 Tendo Pein - Naruto

The way Pein carries himself with an air of confidence and emotionless is super cool. On top of that he's got crazy powers that he uses while barely moving and has the rinnegan. Too cool if you ask me, way cooler than Sasuke. I think he should either be number one or number two or behind Itachi.

A super cool guy. Tendo is sharp-looking, deep-voiced, imposing and masterful. An Akatsuki leader, who controls gravity.

21 Alucard - Hellsing Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

"Open Sesame! Good work soldiers. Now good night." - Alucard from Hellsing Ultimate

Duh, no explanation required!

Awesome to no ends.

22 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, more.

He's a God compared to Hashirama.

Madara vs 1000, madara wins easy...

23 Naruto - Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Well , the one who one believed in, but became the one , who saved everybody. Cool also , thanks to his hair combined with his power .

He is cool, because not only is he powerful, but he uses his power for good and is so great at it.

The best of the best

24 Deidara - Naruto Shippuden Deidara 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.

Deidara is so cool. He flies thru the air on his clay birds with his long hair in the wind, he's a master of art and explosives, and a free spirit who enjoys battle.

25 Yami Bakura - Yugioh
