Best Rurouni Kenshin Characters

The Top Ten

1 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

Based on a historical figure of the same name, the leader of the 3rd squad of the Shinsengumi during the Bakumatsu

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 Sagara Sanosuke

A former mercenary who becomes Kenshin's best friend

4 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

He always laughing, which is very interesting.
when you see him for the first time you think he's always happy.

5 Kamiya Kaoru

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!

She's the only one who sees Kenshin for his true self

How is she above Seijuro and Misao?


6 Makimachi Misao

A super hot kunoichi

7 Shinomori Aoshi

Obsessed with killing Kenshin to become #1

An orphan who idolizes Kenshin

9 Shishio Makoto Shishio Makoto, known in the English anime in Western order as Makoto Shishio, is a fictional character from the Rurouni Kenshin manga series created by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

It's funny how she flirts with Kenshin to make Kaoru jealous

Megumi is the BEST! Shes so cool and intelligent!
