Best Assassination Classroom Characters


The Top Ten

1 Karma Akabane 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 he's my favorite besides Koro-sensei!

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.

2 Koro-sensei

I love Koro-sensei

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

How he protect the students with his life

3 Nagisa Shiota

I thought he was a girl

Nagisa is the best, so bad ass.

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

4 Tadaomi Karasuma

He's just so cool!

the best

5 Itona Horibe

He's too cute for me to handle(he's actually my first anime crush)What I really like about him is that he isn't afraid to tell the truth.A pretty awesome and cute character.

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).

7 Irina Jelavic Irina Jelavic

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

Bitch sensei : - Tuana123

She’s REALLY pretty

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 Gakushu Asano

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

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

i love his character design ^^

He's adorable and is perfect for Karma, he deserves to be a main characters and is supposed to live a happy life w/ Karma without any of these other side ships like Karma x Nagisa, Karma x Okuda, Gakushu x Ren, Gakushu x Nagisa, Karma x Okuda (🤢) and Karma x Korosensei.

10 Kaede Kayano

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

She Loves Pudding

She is so cute and funny

No big boobs

12 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

13 Hinano Kurahashi
14 Kotaro Takebayashi
15 Sousuke Sugaya
16 Masayoshi Kimura
17 Rinka Hayami

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

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 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.

18 Ryunosuke Chiba

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

Best boi? Like seriously he’s great

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

"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.

19 Manami Okuda

She is so cute


Karmanami forever

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

He is perfect

21 Toka Yada

She's amazing and the best to cosplay as well

My favorite female character in Assassination Classroom - Sassy13crown

22 Tomohito Sugino

I also love baseball

23 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
