Best Cowboy Bebop Characters


The Top Ten

1 Spike Spiegel Spike Spiegel

Of all the protagonist of all the animes I've watched, he is the best... No unimaginable super powers or super weapons, just a mere human yet has more than just humanity... He's cool, awesome, understanding, outstanding and what not and what yes... I'm running out of adjectives for this character... More than just a character for me... Awesome character building! Hats off to the maker! And bow-downs to the animators for making an anime that will stay with you forever... - abhishah901

A cool, mysterious, laidback anti-hero who made this series ten times better than it already was. He's a great fighter and although he can kick some ass, he also shows us that he's still only human (when he gets beat up pretty badly). I think everyone can agree that even after the series ended, we all wanted to explore his chsracter even more so that we can understanf him better. Spike is just simply a mysterious and cool, yet phenomenal character.

Her eccentricity brings this anime to a whole new level.

The cutest character in the history of cute characters

You won't find a character like this in any other anime.

3 Faye Valentine Faye Valentine Faye Valentine is a fictional character from Cowboy Bebop who first appeared in the third episode Honky Tonk Woman who was a wanted bounty head who later joined the bounty hunter group along with Spike and Jet, she's arrogant, opportunistic, grumpy and lazy and despite her appearance she's actually more.

While she didn't have as much screen-time dedicated to her past, she showed the most dramatic change in character. While we gradually pieced together the backstories of the other characters, Faye had no backstory to piece together - she knew as much about her past as the audience did. I think it was really cool how we found out about her past at the same time she did.

4 Jet Black Jet Black

The under dog who keeps the team together. Jet is around 15% bionic, but is more human than the rest of the crew.

Spike is awesome and everyone knows it, but Jet is ultra badass too!

I always loved him. Real man - Borsa

Spike is more badass.. but Jet is my favorite, his charisma, sarcasm, feelings making him very human.. I don't know exactly why I like him but I do. - TiffanyHwang
