Best Male Anime Characters

The Top Ten

1 Vegeta Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Sure everyone has a right to opinion But that does not mean they will think he and Bulma are saints also. That is why it was written that vegeta bulma fans are very very irritating. I agree now why other people said. - Monday23

He's got the best character development for someone the creator didn't even like in the first place. It's hard not to like Vegeta though. He's the most badass anime character. - SupaSaiyanSwagga

He does have the best character development of anybody in Dragonball and I feel like Goku is just plain dumb and vegeta should takeover as protagonist

It was because of Goku he developed. It was written you all are so so irritating. - Monday23

Vegeta for the win

2 L

Dude, L is far smarter than almost every character over here. He should be at least 3 positions higher. Naruto and Ichigo are rather silly. They can't even compare with L, who is acknowledged as a genius. As for Light, he only won because he was damn lucky. In terms of intelligence, L is better. Light is intelligent too but L's way of solving problems and the fact that he got that far without having a death note or a person willing to sacrifice themselves for him make him better. Edward is just not as mature (intellectually) as L.

L is amazing, he is a genius and it a very interesting guy, plus he loves cake! X3

L IS AMAZING!

He is really the best we need more of him what if a new anime called life note came Matsuda {i didn't spell it right } brought L back to life am I going to far? Probably am but it needs to happen!

3 Goku Goku Son Goku (Born Kakarrot) is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. His abilities include super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. ...read more.

Always willingly doing something for the better of his community (Earth)

Simply the greatest ever, and most influential. - Goku02

Much better than overrated Vegeta.

More like gratefully leaves his family behind to fight, complains about providing for them, lets the enemies go just so they'll get stronger and he'll fight them later on. All around idiot.

4 Edward Elric Edward Elric Edward Elric, commonly nicknamed Ed, is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series created by Hiromu Arakawa.

The only anime character that I tru fangirl over - OtakuYato

Best dude ever! I swear there is something about this guy that makes me fan girl so hard

5 Light Yagami Light Yagami Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

He is so smart and handsome. He is not totally bad boy!

HIS AWESOME! SUPER HOT TOO!

6 Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Naruto is my inspiration.
He should be in top 2.
He was once a failure and now the hero.
He was alone from the day he was born, he didn't have anyone.
People kept their distance from him, and he didn't even know why, but he didn't give up.
Naruto always trained to become stronger to be acknowledged by people.
Naruto is my HERO!

He taught me to be persistent.

He's strong and amazing and will probably be hokage

You started as a story.
You grew into a legend.
Err...
I started off as a normal person.
You change me into an anime freak.

Thanks, Naruto! I don't know, but sometimes people who don't exist change our lives the most.

7 Ichigo Kurosaki Ichigo Kurosaki Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

Ichigo Kurosaki is a good fighter and in the first episode he even almost killed himself saving his sister when Riokua said that when transferring her powers to him could kill him! So I think he should at least be in the top 2or 3 thank you for reading

Because I love ichiruki

8 Deidara Deidara

Deidara is a character extraordinaire. He has a free-wheeling personality, arrogant and sly, and a speech mannerism, saying 'Hmm'. Deidara is a dazzling artist who creates clay bombs and flying mounts, and engages in exciting fights. He's really attractive with his cute face and long, elegant blond hair. I love this guy.

9 Lelouch (Code Geass)
10 Tomoya Okazaki Tomoya Okazaki

He has one of the most touching and depressing stories to tell, he really is a caring and loving guy while stilll maintaining a humorous side as well. I'm so happy he's in the top three. This man deserves it.

The Contenders

11 Itachi Uchiha (Naruto) Itachi Uchiha (Naruto) Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Oh, come on! Naruto, Ichigo and Natsu smarter than Itchi? Are you kidding me? Naruto is not even full grown up. He is just a kid compared to Itachi. He's a much more complex character. Natsu is stupid. Yeah, he cares for his friends, he's kind and all these stuffs but Itachi did what he did because he had too. Not to mention that he loves his brother even more than he loves himself. That's kindness. But this is about intelligence. And Itachi is a pure genius. He's basically one of the most intelligent character in anime history. The only character that comes into my mind who's smarter than Itachi is L Lawliet and that's because L was designed to be intelligent - he's main point is intelligence. As for Itachi's place on this list, it is COMPLETELY wrong!

Since sasuke wasn't here I'll pick itachi the only one worth picking in this list.

Itachi uchoha is the smartest character in Naruto, he is very hot, very cute, an amazing character with an excellent build. He murdered his family in front of his little brother but it turned out to blah blah spoilers. But he IAS the most amazing character and should be in the top 3. He was going blind and a stuff and he is the number 1 hottest anime character ever after deidara. He is so amazing that when ever I see him I get squealy and uhm, laugh out loud. Ao, in conclusion, he is the best character in all of anime, the hottest, the best, and he's the whole package.

12 Monkey D.Luffy

He is persistent and confident even when he's about to die

14 Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge Lelouch Lamperouge, whose real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is the title character and protagonist of the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
15 Tendo Pein

This character is coolness personified. He has cool looks, cool powers, and a cool personality.

He's a dead body with a few rods in him, what?

16 Levi Ackerman Levi Ackerman Levi Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

Why is Levi not higher up on the list? Levi is amazing. From the fantastic anime, Attack on Titan, Levi is a strong, brave soldier. He was born in the Underground, a failed city project that mostly lives in poverty. His mother was murdered when he was five years old. But he was taken in by his uncle, Kenny Ackerman. Kenny abandoned Levi when he was bordering his teenage years. Levi lived his time in the Underground a criminal. He was a talented thief and an amazing fighter. He had also mastered how to use the 3D Maneuvering Equipment. He had two accomplices, Farlan and Isabel. They were all great fighters and knew how to use the equipment, but Levi was by far the best. Levi was later recruited as a soldier in the Survey Corps along with his accomplices when he was in his twenties. He didn't even get training like all of the other soldiers. He was that good. He immediately excelled in the Survey Corps. He is even known as Humanity's Greatest Soldier. But unfortunately on his first ...more

17 Ryou/Yami Bakura

Bakura is an exquisite character. He has a good, friendly personality and a crafty, wicked personality. Bakura is classy and intelligent, and controls magical energies with his Millennium Ring. He's really attractive with his long pale mane and cute face, and in English, his British voice. I love this guy.
