Top Ten Yona of the Dawn Characters

The Top Ten
1 Hak

He is the greatest, though I kind of feel sorry that Yona never noticed him at first. But this dude is my favorite character ever in romcom anime. You've got to read the manga to see Yona and him get together. Honestly, he is actually not cool but is cute!

The total package of a guy which every girl loves. (I am a guy though) I actually like him for the balance he has. He is strong, funny, sarcastic, and serious all in one character.

Hak is a very kind character, especially towards Princess Yona.

Hak is unbelievably strong and attractive.

2 Yona Yona (ヨナ, Yona) is the titular protagonist of the manga and anime series, Akatsuki no Yona. She is the princess of the Kouka Kingdom, the only heir of Emperor Il, and the reincarnation of the Red Dragon King Hiryuu. On her 16th birthday, she was forced to flee Hiryuu Castle after her father was... read more

As a female, I greatly admire Yona who started as an annoying, spoiled, innocent, cliched Shoujo character and evolved into a very well-rounded, strong, kind, and unselfish character.

I love all AkaYona characters, but I prefer a woman who I can easily look up to, even if she is a fictional character.

She is the main character, beautiful, dependable, kind, and always helps anyone who is in trouble. Not to mention, her development was the best.

3 Shin-Ah

I think that Shin-ah is the best character overall. He had such a depressing life, and I not only feel like I can relate to that but I also feel bad for him. Though personally, I have never been locked in a cave. Also, he has never tried to seduce Yona like Hak and Jea-ha have, which I respect.

He is a very sweet, quiet, occasionally dark, and kind character. If Shin-ah was real, I would be his friend unlike anybody else besides Zero and Ao.

4 Kija

The first dragon. Perfect start. This spoiled prince is just perfect. They were really lucky to come across him first. I hope he stands a little more for himself and for his own desires than just serving the king.

5 Jae-Ha

He is funny and likes music. Nice. And his skills are super cool. When I first heard about the dragon's feet, I didn't think it could be put to such good use. I like his relationship with Captain Gi-gan. She's great too!

6 Yoon

Yoon literally saved Yona and Hak! Without him, they'd already be dead. My gosh, he's my little genius, pretty boy. (If you're wondering, he's my bae/senpai)

Mother bear. He is really cool, clever, and a young handsome man!

7 Zeno

Everyone who has read the manga will understand that he is the best character. He is the strongest dragon and suffered most out of all of them. He always protects all others of his group with so much pain and is wise and cheerful.

8 Soo-Won

Soo-Won is the most interesting character in the anime/manga in my opinion. The actions he took that antagonized him in the story were just to make the nation strong again. He saw what had to be done and sacrificed the little things in order to achieve a better kingdom. He has my respect.

He's a great ruler and kind. He even said that he never wanted to be king in the first place, and sacrificing his friendship with Hak and Yona must have been hard for him. But he still did it and let everyone view him as the antagonist in order to prosper the nation.

9 Ik-Soo
10 Son Mundok
The Contenders
11 Ao
12 Tae-Jung Kang

His arc touched me. Seeing him come full circle and change from such a jerk into a lovable dork who does everything in his power to help not only Yona, but people hurting in general, was very impactful. His actions inspire his men and slowly you see gradual change.

His arc was so surprisingly beautifully done, and I love how it underlines that despite what Yona thinks, she has a different kind of strength. The kind of strength to inspire others as we can see in Tae Jung. I just totally did not expect to find such rich story and well-developed characters in this series, and I love Tae Jung.
