Best Durarara!! Characters


The Top Ten

1 Izaya Orihara Izaya Orihara

Izaya... The kind of character you hate so much you start loving him.
He is the proof that not all villains have an outstanding physical strenght. It is almost impossible to prevent his schemes, because he can find a way to prevent you from doing that or use your actions to enable his plans. He is so annoying but at the same time he has quite a lote of charisma. The only thing that really annoys me about him is that HE TALKS TOO MUCH. Like in other animes I have found characters with annoying personality traits but I have never came across such a talkative character. My favorite characters in Durarara are Masaomi and Rokujo but Izaya DEFINITELY deserves this #1 spot.

We love to hate him and we hate to love him - Fujoshi-chan

Reasons to like Izaya
There are none but, we do anyway

He's just AWESOME!

2 Shizuo Heiwajima Shizuo Heiwajima

What a badass. He's pretty funny too

I'm pretty surprised his not no. 1

Shizuo is awesome. He's bad ass; he defeated an army of zombie like people. I love his inner angst of deciding whether his is human or a monster because it makes me feel so mushy gushy inside.

I've only just started watching this show but this guy cracks me up and steals every scene... Mainly because of how in every scene he is launching a vending machine at Izaya.

3 Celty Sturluson

One of the few times I pick a female as best character

Celty is a headless horseman who rides a motorcycle with no headlights. Need I say more?

Celty is sexy, creative and deadly

I love her, she is amazing, if I could have her I would. I go Shinra for her every time I look at the screen

4 Masaomi Kida

Best boi

Best boy

Out of all the amazing realistic characters in Durarara! I personally find Masaomi to be the most human and connectable of all of them. We've all tried to run from our past because we were scared, and we had no faith that we could overcome our guilt. Most try to cover up their past with the present, and so does Masaomi. The choices he make and the feelings he have are realistic to the point where realism can't catch up. Besides, his dorky awkward attempts to pick up girls is just hilarious, I laugh every time see them.

5 Kyohei Kadota

DotaChin is easily the best.

Yasss! Kyohei is one of my favorites!

6 Mikado Ryƫgamine

Honestly, Mikado should be higher up on the list. The timid friendly kid we see at the beginning of the story makes him likable but plain. But because of Mikado's goal of being extraordinary, it revealed his true personality. he's a complicated but a great character in the series. I was a bit disappointed that in the SH he turned out more boring then he was at the beginning of the DRRR! series though.

Damn, Mikado is just the best! I love crazy characters and Mikado is one of the craziest! His thirst for the extraordinary and his hatred of the ordinary is just fantastic! I was almost sad that he decided to become an ordinary person by the end of it. Still, I'm hoping that he gets involved in SH even though he wasn't planning on it!

His character arc is one of the best in show and probably all anime. I liked him at the beginning, I loved him at the end. He becomes my favorite anime character of all time in last couple episodes of the series

He is a very complex Character

"Shizuo! Are you finished with puberty? "
Simon's a friendly guy and adorable when ya think about it. He's a good fighter and he was hilarious in the special episode.


"You look serious...Buy some Russian sushi and you feel better"

You by, it good

8 Shinra Kishitani

I mean who doesn't love him?

I love him he's so sweet

Everybody calls this guy a pervert, but he only makes perverted jokes-unlike some characters *Cough* Orihara Twins *Cough* He's also hilarious, and be honest here, you think the way he acts around Celty is sweet.

He's hilarious and cute. He really really love Celty!

9 Anri Sonohara

She's so cute and has a sad past. How could you not love her? (No spoilers if she actually isn't lovable) - FrozenHatingPokefan

10 Shingen Kishitani

The Contenders

11 Saburo Togusa

My boy, my love, my hope

12 Akabayashi

That man has class! He looks scary and really is but he's also nice. Although he's a yakuza I think Akabayashi's a good person. He has his own code and takes care of the persons dear to him.

Let's have him closer to top 10!

13 Erika Karisawa

I seriously love how she ships shizaya so much, whenever she starts to gush over their interactions, even though the other characters disagree though

She's cute and I love her interactions with Walker. - FrozenHatingPokefan

She is a funny otaku

14 Rokujo Chikage

So nice to the ladies, and a surprisingly strong and resilient fighter. He deserves more love!

15 Saki Mikajima

She is just amazing l. She has her weaknesses and can be naive sometimes, but I think we need at least one character like that in the series.

16 Aoba Kuronuma

I feel really bad for what happen in his past.

17 Walker Yumasaki

Manga obsessed pyromaniac?
that's a vote from me!

Just for the burning van scene alone he's awesome.

He's a awesome character who uses a flamethrower fire exquisher.

18 Vorona
19 Mairu Orihara

He has no emotion but he still cares about his brother and his smile is the same no matter what he would be the best at poker.Who would no like him!
