Best Assassination Classroom Characters

The Top Ten

1 Karma Akabane

Truly a unique character. It would've been easy to just relegate his role in the show to being a badass who is good at violence. But nope. They fleshed his character out, and as the show went on you could physically see him transform. He started as a genius rogue who believes that the way to challenge the world is on his own, and turned into a genuine leader who has realized what it means to combine the strengths of everyone around him. Whoever wrote his dialogue and plotted out his character development, bravo. He feels truly human at the end of the show, arising from the fact that you are with him when he's failed and succeeded alike. He will inevitably end up being someone you admire.

I like his character development, and everything about him. End of story.

I love Karma since his first appearance. He's strong and a very smart character with an unique development that you can see according the plot advances. His personality is funny and the way that he stars to change moves me. When I saw him at the Assassination Classroom's final I felt as a proud mother lmao. I know that he achieved all his goals.

In terms as to who's better between Nagisa and Karma, I can't decide. In PREFERENCE, though, Karma wins by 1,000 miles. I mean come on, even if you don't have an opinion of him he still stands out. You know what's better, he never got in a relationship in the end (not technically a spoiler, considering it wasn't part of the plot). In fact, no one got a relationship in the end. The show isn't a "happily ever after" type, unlike Disney (no offense, just saying I like shows that don't have that kind of script more). - Qryzx

2 Koro-sensei

Ok I know Karma is better from a writing standpoint but my goodness Koro-sensei is hilarious and I love his character and the absurdity of it

Korosensei desrves to be first. He is THE BEST CHARACTER no matter what.

Like, why isn't koro sensei the first?! With all his faces and all his effort AAA

He's the reason this whole show and plot started. He isn't extremely strict, plus in the assassination bit of an episode he's a challenge. - Qryzx

3 Nagisa Shiota

I thought Nagisa was a girl till I looked it up LOL my fave anime character

I felt sorry for him being in third place aslo can't decide between Karma and Nagisa. I ship them so badly. I like violent characters. please check out my YT. I'm called trashy tea and have 6 subs.

He's born with killer instinct, and is mostly quiet. Also, he helped Koro-Sensei by... That's kind of a spoiler. - Qryzx

Nagisa may be shy and quiet, but that's what I like about him. Also, the cross-dressing is SUPER funny. Really, Nagisa is my favourite. Easily

4 Tadaomi Karasuma

He's just so cool!

the best

5 Itona Horibe

Does anyone besides me thinks that he is cute? - Sassy13crown

Fantastic character development in such a short time. Best character in the series.

They didn't chose Itona to be their secret weapon for no reason. He managed to jump over 6 feet (with Isogais help) while an average 15 year old male manages to jump an height of 18 inches only. He is revealed to be extremly intelligent and has a high knowledge of mechanics and machinery. Funny is that Itona is a side character with many episodes with him being in the spotlight (3, 4 or 5 episodes? ) while people like Okuda or Maehara has none as far as I know. Pretty sure he even has more spotlight episodes than Kayano, who is a main character lol. Therefore Itona probably is the most important side character in the series and really funny (especially when mocking Terasaka) with an interesting character development (from a psychopathic to calm-minded).

He's cute, just that's why I like him. His character, too

6 Yuma Isogai

Despite living in poverty, Isogai has a giving heart of gold and is trying to do what's best for his family, friends, and others (even if it includes breaking the rules). He has proven to be a great leading, leading class 3-E members many times. He also has many talents and is very intelligent when it comes to Social Studies/History.

He's flawless and perfec! Ikemen the! ❤❤

7 Kaede Kayano

When she was ditzy, she was actually me in a nutshell... except from her athletic ability.

The development of her was amazing - kempokid

She is so cute and funny

She Loves Pudding

8 Gakuhou Asano

I liked him 2nd to Korosensei at first because he was a great foil, but after seeing him change so much, he became my favorite by the end

9 Irina Jelavic

I really like the fact that she got so close with the students even tough she was an assassin herself

Aaayy sensei

Any fan will know " professor bitch is best teacher." - P-Bro-N-J

Bitch sensei : - Tuana123

10 Rio Nakamura

Karma and her are one of the best anime duos ever,right up there with Goku and Vegeta.Kurio for life.

This is by far one of the best anime girl ever, deserve a higher spot

She's literally my spirit animal, I ship her sm with karma

She is just super cool and chill

The Contenders

11 Ryoma Terasaka


12 Gakushu Asano

Cool and popular no reason to hate him only to hate his dad. I totally ship him with Karma, even though they lok like siblings

Yay! Gakushu is one of the Top Ten! I love him. He's so adorable. -Sylvia Takashi

Twisted, yet noble. And the ruler of whatever group he wants to conquer. One of the most interesting characters of the series.

i LOVE him

13 Ritsu

Listen here y'all. Ritsu is a VERY GOOD CHARACTER and needs more screen time and charcter development. She needs more appreciation godammit.

Please tell me how Ritsu isn’t higher on this list. She is a strong girl (yes idc if she’s a robot) and found her own free will with Koro-Sensei’s help

14 Masayoshi Kimura
15 Hinano Kurahashi
16 Rinka Hayami

She is awesome and she is a perfect example of a skilled, young and a hell of a great assassin! (if she was)

She is a silent killer.
A Strom in the calm.

She is pretty and stoic quite an interesting character

She is the best female in assassination classroom. she is pretty serious but fun too. so ya GO HAYAMI.

17 Ryunosuke Chiba

I mean... Come on! This is the emo dating sim protagonist.

"I mean, come on. Chiba is badass. He is the best long-range shooter in the class, the cutest male tsundere ever, and his personality is just great! I like his bangs a lot too, it takes a lot of nerve to grow your hair out that long and be commited to it.

He are a pro

He's an e class emo tsundere badass who isn't in favor of him

18 Manami Okuda

A master potion creator, and when teamed up with Takebayashi, create a scientific duo to be reckoned with!

She is so cute

Karmanami forever


19 Kotaro Takebayashi
20 Sousuke Sugaya
21 Hiroto Maehara

She's nice and funny

She's amazing and the best to cosplay as well

23 Tomohito Sugino

I also love baseball

24 Yukiko Kanzaki
25 Hinata Okano

One OF the best girl in anime for me. I think it's because she's the most cute for me

Even if she is the minority in this anime. I'm still love her because I think she's the most cute in this anime. Her tomboyish and her 'badass' is the one that make me love her.


Je l'adore, elle est mignonne, elle a du caractère et elle est cool

26 Megu Kataoka

Brains and power. She tells us girls don't have to be pretty, all they need is courage and strength.
