Best Kuroko No Basket Characters

The best KNB characters, including the ones from the manga.
The Top Ten
1 Akashi Seijuro

At first I didn't take a liking to his character, but his intriguing personalities really helped me to get drawn into his character. He has a complex depth written into him and I think that's what makes him appealing to the audience. It's interesting to learn how he has become the person he is from his backstory, and as the person below has said before, you gotta feel bad for him. He has this different vibe from the rest of the Generation of Miracles and I think that's what makes him a popular choice for fans of the Kuroko no Basket series.

2 Aomine Daiki

I love Aomine. He's so good at playing basketball. I didn't like him at first, but he grows unto you. His middle school self playing basketball back then with the generation of miracles made me like him more. He looks like the person that doesn't really give a damn about everything, but he's a nice guy in the inside and he cares a lot about his friends (especially Kuroko). He just doesn't like showing it haha.

Best character on the whole show by far. His backstory is so well done and he's one of the most fleshed out characters. His redemption was well done and I wish there was a spinoff series where he's the center piece.

3 Kise Ryouta

I really like his character development, even if it was not as much as some other characters.

Kise started off the series from episode 3 as a slightly arrogant dude. But after losing to Kuroko and Kagami, it fuelled his desire to train hard and beat them together with his teammates in Kaijo. As the series went by, he started caring more for his teammates and captain Kasamatsu, and not just for himself, evidently shown in the Winter Cup when he played and lost to Seirin.

Before, he cried because he was angry and sad that he lost to a team he had looked down on.

Now, he cries because of disappointment in himself. Kise had trained really hard just so that his friends and seniors can win together for their final match as a team. He knows that this was his senpais' last game and he felt that he let them down.

4 Kagami Taiga

He is my favorite character because his personality symbolizes that little space inside of us that's super determined. I also love his personality and how cute he looks when eating a Maji Burger. I also like how humbled he is once he gets beaten, but also how after that, he remains determined and confident and works harder.

Honestly, I have no words for this character. I love him. Best character, in my opinion.

5 Midorima Shintarou

His ability might be mostly limited to shooting, but he's highly intelligent. Midorima can strategize and he understands his ability, plus how to manipulate it. Kagami might be able to block his 3 pointers, however Midorima is able to find other ways to get past him. In real life, his ability to shoot and accuracy is so amazing, that it goes to the point of unrealistic.

Midorima is the 2nd weakest generation of miracles, above Kuroko. He doesn't deserve 2nd place since he has considerably lower ball handling ability than the majority of the Generation of Miracles

6 Tetsuya Kuroko

HE'S MY SeNpAi! I LoVe HiM! Plus he's very determined. He sees through his promises and is very humble. He won't take bad actions very lightly and will try to help those who are in trouble even though he might get hurt in the process. He's the only miracle who hasn't changed and still believes in teamwork. His overall faith in winning is not considered winning if you don't try and if you are not happy is very motivational! Despite him calling himself a shadow I personally think in a way he IS the light. If his teammates are done and give up he's the first to help them back on their feet and tell them giving up is not an option.

7 Murasakibara Atsushi

Such a big sweetheart, I love him because he wears my favourite colour, he eats all day, he is tall like me, he is an idiot but in a cute way, he is a little negative like me but most of all he has a huge heart because he carried (taigas friends name, I always forget it) wishes and played with the best of his ability even if he did not win he still tried and that's what I like in a character.

When he lost in a game vs Kuroko, in the ending scene, where he enters zone, gives almost his max (bcs, in reality, it wasn't more than 80% or he would hurt someone) and cries later and puts a towel on his head to cover his emotions... it was most epic scene ever. Truly, scene worth of the best player.

8 Teppei Kiyoshi

It was difficult to choose between him and Kuroko, but in the end I picked Kiyoshi.
He is the proof that it is not necessary to be a member of the GoM to be a great character. I love him for his originality, because he really makes me laugh, because he loves basket and not even an injury could stop him or made him depressed, instead he was always positive and cared for his mates more than himself.
Look at the match with the Kirisaki and you can't help to feel affection towards him and to admirate his strenght and his will to protect his comrades at the cost of hurting his body.
He is like a big brother to everyone in Seirin.

9 Kuroko Tetsuya

I like his personality the most and he is very unpredictable. His present sometimes not realized but give significant effect and change the flow. I like how much he keep his promises with his previous friends.

He's the main character everyone even people who hate main characters such as Naruto would love.

He should be 1st place. I love him

10 Taiga Kagami

Kagami is on par with the Generation of Miracles as mentioned when he "breaks through" into the room of prodigies. Also this guy has unbelievable athleticism and can do pretty much anything once he gets close to the basket. Currently, he's at least better than Midorima and Murasakibara.

Kagami doesn't deserve 8th place! I mean... He is confident but not arrogant, and he makes people laugh! Kagami needs more justice!

The Contenders
11 Seijuro Akashi
12 Kotaro Hayama
13 Himuro Tatsuya

Himuro deserves to be at Top 10!
He is very hot and good-looking and also sometimes cute!
He is very realistic unlike others!

Very intriguing and awesome character, there should be a OVA about him

14 Junpei Hyuuga
15 Takao Kazunari

Takao is an amazing character, and the fact that he is able to keep up with Midorima and that they can be a formidable duo is quite respectable. Also, Takao is Kuroko's natural enemy, which means that Kuroko is inferior to Takao, which means Kuroko can't disappear from Takao's Hawk Eye. The only other chaarcyer who has the potential of doing that is Akashi (who is one of the Generation of Miracles). Takao's passing is also on point and one of the best, considering his pass into Midorima's hands (during the match against Rakuzan). Takao is one of the best Kuroko no basket characters.

16 Mibuchi Reo
17 Sakurai Ryo

Personality wise I think he is cute. He is a pretty good shooter. Gets the ball and can quickly shoot. Even though he doesn't make it sometimes (if he gets better accuracy he will be one of the best.)

18 Shinji Koganei
19 Riko Aida

Favorite girl. She is one of the few girls in kuroko's basketball (knb). Even though she gets bullied by momoi (momoi's mean remarks to her chets size) I believe she is honestly more useful than her. She works on growth and the one thing about humans is that we always evolves. Momoi just tells you what skills the oppoent has and how to counter it in theory.

20 Kasamatsu Yukio

There are two types of people in this world, one who thought that Kasamatsu is hot and liars!

21 Shun Izuki

Izuki is a very underrated character. He is amazing, and he is extremely strong. His Eagle Eye (although it is inferior to Hawk Eye) is quite useful and it helped him to beat Kasamatsu with his Eagle Spear. His personality is also quite cool and I love his puns! He is cool-headed, funny and caring. He should be higher up.

22 Daiki Aomine

In my eyes he will always be number 1. The character development is amazing too.

He on the generation of miracles what do you mean he's talented.

23 Tetsuya #2

Strongest character in the show. Kagami is scared of it so it can easily stomp kagami and its just too cute for the others to handle. (We are not including the sadistic characters)

24 Satsuki Momoi
25 Nash Gold Jr.

Truth be told, he is the best character in the show. He outclasses akashi, by height, strenght. He is better than aomine because of his eye. I wasn't really a fan of him at first but rewatching the last game moive I grew to love him. Best player over all only one that can actually compare is kise but kise is a different story.
