Best Rurouni Kenshin Characters


The Top Ten

1 Himura Kenshin Himura Kenshin Himura Kenshin, known as Kenshin Himura in the English-language anime dubs, is a fictional character and protagonist of the Rurouni Kenshin manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

I LOVE YOU KENSHIN! He's amazing and so incredibly amazing, he is invincible and so caring. I love his concept of a reverse blade sword. He is also so smart. What I find really interesting is that he probably only hardly shed one tear IN THE WHOLE SERIES. he's LIKE MY IDEAL MAN

Laugh out loud. No doubt about it. Kenshin is strong, smart, and loyal. He keeps promises too. THis man deserves to be loved. KENSHIN!

I like his principles...and wish to follow it

I love kenshin he's my everything

2 Saitō Hajime

Seriously, is this even a debate?

Kenshin is the best character in that I'd like to personally know him, but as an anime character? No contest it's the Wolf of Mibu.

3 Seta Sōjirō

He could even defeat kenshin if he didn't break down plus he has a tragic past, sealed his emotions and he is incredibly fast, should have been at least top 3...

Interesting character
He had the potential to surpass Shishio
He would have beaten Kenshin if not for the breakdown

4 Sagara Sanosuke
5 Kamiya Karou

Karou is actually so smart, shes a smart woman! Shes so sweet soft and kind and HILARIOUS! She stands up for what she believes in. KAROU ALL THE WAY!

How is she above Seijuro and Misao?
