Biggest Badasses In Anime


The Top Ten

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

Can't Spell Badass without Vegeta! May not be the strongest but the Sayian Prince tops the Badass Charts with his aggressive attitude, pride, and violent manner.
- anthonybecerra831

Vegeta is the most badass Anime character of the most badass and best Anime ever! He and Dragonball Z are the best thing about Anime ever! Vegeta is proud, arrogant, powerful, determined, short-tempered and hardcore. No Anime character beats him when it comes to badassary!

Arrogant prince who is too proud and egoistic to see someone exceed himself... He is indeed the biggest dirtiest bad ass in Anime.

I think there is no anime character other than Vegeta ever ask "Does a machine like yourself ever experience fear?!?!?! " To a human artifical/robot and that's proof how badass he is.

2 Roronoa Zoro - One Piece Roronoa Zoro - One Piece Roronoa Zoro, nicknamed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Without a doubt him, Guts and Vegeta qualify as the most badass characters. However Zoro is slightly above Vegeta because Vegeta at times was a bit too much talk. Guts, although badass, was infinitesimally behind Zoro is bad assery. I honestly hate one piece and scoff at it as a baby show. However putting all bias aside Zoro deserves to be hailed with the epithet as the most badass character. Why?

He tried fighting against a guy wielding 8 swords, despite Zoro already being wounded.
When he got stabbed by Mihak instead of stepping back he moved forward, literally, exacerbating the pain of the stab.

He asked Bartholomew to take Luffy's pain and give it to him, which nearly killed him. His response when asked what happened: "nothing"

When he was being waxed and petrifying, he tried to cut his legs off just to keep fighting.

He fought 100 baraque works soldiers and was enjoying himself.

He was told by Tashigi that a blade called Sandi ...more

This guy is the definition of badass. I would start with some examples (spoilers of One Piece ahead! )- 1) The scene where he cuts Monet. For people unfamiliar with One Piece, Monet was a woman made of snow and only a special ability called Haki could be used to cut people like her (otherwise she could just reintegrate her body parts). Zoro knew this ability but being the badass that he is, he walked up to her while giving an awesome speech about "Have you ever seen an animal that doesn't bite" and cuts her in half without using Haki. But guess what? She is so scared at this point that she can't even move or reintegrate herself, which is actually very easy for people with her ability.

2) He once accidentally got on a pirate ship, thinking it was a fishing ship. A little while after the pirate ship submerges (yeah, that can happen in One Piece) it emerges out of the sea. But to everyone's surprise it had been cut at various places from one end to the other. It was ...more

Zoro is absolutely the most badass, incredible character I've witnessed in anime. He perseveres epically despite other characters having extreme advantages on him (i.E. no devil fruit powers and yet he still fights head to head with those who have it).

He's first introduced as having this totally frightening reputation and throughout the entire anime he can send people running away screaming with just a *glare*.

When he isn't napping or lifting HUGE @SS BARBELLS WHILE SITTING AROUND, his job is literally raising the 'effing anchor on the ship (because he is THAT strong) and kicking people's ass. Despite getting a lot of crap about being a meathead he's often times one of the most intuitive people in the crew when it comes to both battle and general observation.

He follows a strict code of honor - facing all of his enemies head on and not deviating from this unless one of his crewmates is in danger.

Zoro is an incredible swordsman from episode 1 of the ...more

Vegeta gets pushed around a lot and talks big this guy literally takes a beating that shouldn't be possible sometimes.

3 Guts - Berserk Guts - Berserk

Guts defied death from the moment of birth. He fights to live and lives to fight. The definition of the true anti-hero, he fights with a full arsenal of man-made weaponry against creatures of hell, of nightmares, of the intangible dark of the human pysche. All for revenge. He fights his fights not for arrogance, or for the challenge or for any noble cause. He fights his own destiny which is to die.

Guts/Gattsu is a regular guy in anime standards - no magic, ninjitsu, spirit energy, powers, special gift, specialized training from a master, etc etc. Just a mercanary (at one time) and a big sword. He fought, and killed 100 men at once with only his sword - and his willpower. His will to live. The dude faced off against demons one on one, always fighting to an inch of his life. He fought a LEGION OF MAN-EATING DEMONS WITH A BROKEN KNIFE HILT! Why am I having to explain how bad ass that is?! He hunts demons now, even when he knows the odds are stacked against him, and barely survives his encounters! And... He does it all as a human. For Guts to be so far from the top just means all the other voters hadn't watched the Berserk anime.

Guts deserves to be number 1, He is insanely powerful even without his berserker armor, and yet he is still just a mere human. A human who challenges the impossible, and he casually murders countless demons on a daily basis as if they were ants. How badass is that? Guts has had definitely more than a dozen near death encounters and yet he still comes out the victor in every single battle he has been in.

Guts is the person that should be number one since he uses no magic no power. He is the definition of badassery. His will power is'nt comparable to any other anime character. No one can fight demons on daily basis. The life of all the other anime character is like a heaven for guts. He is pure badass.

4 L - Death Note L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

L is the kind of man U would underestimate at first glance because of his unique appearance and habits, but you'd be sorry that you did. He can blow your mind with his intellectual ways better than Light can because coming from L if you didn't know he was the famous detective, you would never have expected it.

DEATH NOTE forever! L is so amazing
Love that anime... The story is amazing and L is such a great character!
And I want a Death Note too! Me and L are going to run the world

Wait! It's on second? Have any of these guys ever watched this show?

If they had, it would have been on the first!

I love L

5 Future Trunks - Dragon Ball Future Trunks - Dragon Ball

All the others characters had teamed up to defeat Frieza, which took about 20 episodes. All Trunks needs to kill him is ONE slice from his sword, and he did it alone - while killing his henchmen and King Cold (who is more powerful than Frieza? ) at the same time.

Come on! He scared Frieza in less than 2 minutes, and then killed both him and King Cold. He also defeated the androids that were stronger than everyone else - BADASS

The best episode of DBZ is the one where he shows up and completely destroys Frieza. - Yoshilord

He slay!

6 Spike - Cowboy Bebop Spike - Cowboy Bebop

Spike knows how a man should dress. Blue leisure suit, yellow shirt, and black skinny tie is the most badass thing he could wear. He doesn't care about his physical health. He smokes, drinks, and gets shot on a regular basis. If that's not badass, I don't know what is. And he was in an organized crime syndicate. How many characters can you say that about on this list?

Power alone does not make a badass. True most other characters on this list could probably beat him, but the way he acts makes him twice the badass.

Dude. The guy lived through DEATH. He has an eye that sees the past, and one that sees the present.
And what's even better, he's not a damn stupid whiney brat about it.
That is why Spike is the best Anime Badass.

How tf is L above spike... This is obviously just a popularity contest

7 Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Itachi is the best of the best of the best of the best of the best... I could go on and on writing that... Itachi truly is a super-awesome and a true shinobi... Love Itachi! Forever! I wonder why Sasuke is also not in the top ten list? - archiesweirdmysteries

Itachi takes the metaphorical cake on badassery. While doing things that appear to have one effect, he is able to set plans for days, months, or years in the future. Even when faced with unexpected results he forges on ahead. And hell, how can you be a badass without looking out for your brother and joining a deadly organization?

It's really a shame a character like Itachi had to get stuck in an anime like Naruto. Naruto is mediocre at best, and I found myself forcing my way through it a lot of the time. But whenever Itachi was on-screen, I was completely hooked. I don't wanna harp on too long about them because I'm sure I won't say anything that hasn't already been said, so... yeah. The guy's awesome. One of my favorite anime characters to date.

How can he be a badass if he's ded.

8 Alucard - Hellsing Alucard - Hellsing Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

How the hell is Alucard not at the top. You guys must be crazy. Alucard fights curb-stomp battles with everyone he goes against, and even taunts them to get them to fight all out. He has a badass look and he can survive almost anything. Not only that, but he is Dracula. Vlad The Impaler. The history alone makes him a badass, and then he goes and defies any rules about vampires ever heard of. Seriously, bring him up.

Can't see why this isn't mentioned yet, come on Alucard makes badass seem like wimps, Alucard is the ultimate Badass in the anime world, he is insane, he is a vampire (Very old one at that), and he enjoys good fights where he can go all out... Whats not to like?!

Alucard is pretty much the most badass character in existence. He is cool and sly. He is practically invincible. He literally lets people shoot him to pieces before he puts himself back together right in front of them and devours them. And his guns are awesome as well.

Alucard is way more badass than vegeta (in my opinion)

9 Levi - Attack on Titan Levi - Attack on Titan 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. He accompanies the main protagonists in the second half of season 1. His most notable feature is being "Humanity's strongest".

Just a normal human without titan-shifting abilities, and yet capable of absolutely WRECKING literally anything else in the show. Should be number one.

MUST BE NUMBER 1, he is only human, no superpowers, and still so badass. I mean he can turn into a Beyblade while fighting! Also when you search badass, Google says: 'Did you mean Levi Ackerman? '

How can he not be number 1?! He can wreck all the titans before mikasa can say "Eren" again! He is the number 1 KING of badasses AND humanity strongest soldier! Plus he also has that I don't care personality and his cleaning obsession which just intrigues the audience. But he gets 2 percent for the votes?! He doesn't have ANY superpowers but he can destroy the female titan and beast titan.

He can kill titans without any super power he almost killed female titan without any effort he just be number one or the list is upside down (somehow...don't ask me)

10 Revy - Black Lagoon Revy - Black Lagoon Rebecca Lee, mainly referred to as Revy, and sometimes Two Hands, is the main female protagonist of the Black Lagoon series.

She is the one person you don't want to piss off, and she gets pissed really easily. Revy is basically a walking bomb about to explode at any second.

I'm not scared of any of the other guys. Maybe Alucard slightly, the rest? Nah. But Revy...that is one girl that I never want to cross. Her combination of amazing fighting skill, not caring attitude, and absolute joy she takes in her work makes her the definition of badass.

One of my all time favorites, Revy combines her fighting skills with hilarious comments and a very interesting character.

Yes, she is so crazy

The Contenders

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

Wait, Sasuke a baddass, he whines more than a dog I didn't give the leftovers to. In Bleach, Ichigo gets strong enough to beat the he11 out of most of the other guys in the first 30 episodes, sasuke almost dies, he's arrogant and I wished he died almost 10 episodes into the anime

Ichigo has the most resolve of any anime character ever. He will grow in power as the situation needs, unlike Goku who just toys with his opponents to see how strong they are Ichigo doesn't even know his power until it grows in him to beat stronger and stronger opponents. This guy is the definition of badass.

Whenever needed, he is practically invincible and can beat anyone, doesn't matter if it is strongest villain of the series.

Ichigo is a badass.He has so many powers and his zampakto is the coolest.He is a soulreaper who can use Quincy and Hollow powers because he has quincy heratige and a hollow possessed his mom and it was passed down to him.He looks really badass with his hollow mask and he defeated Aizen,Ulquiorra,Grimjaw,Kenpachi and Byakuya.-TheCoolGuy1

12 Kenshiro - Hokuto no Ken

This man is a combination of Jesus Christ, Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee, and Son Goku in one body. He could eviscerate you in one punch. You heard of One Punch Man? Nah son, my boy Kenshiro is the REAL one punch man.

Really?! Really?! Really?! This guy put the term badass in the anime's world.
He even has and awesome and really badass catchphrase "you are already dead"

You people are idiots for not having him and guts from berserk in the top 5

This should be number 1 not vegeta!

Should be at the top. This list is crap without zaraki at the top.

This man may isn't the strongest charachter, but he is the definition of badass you can't argue with that he should be #1 how can it that he is so low in this list. Its absurd!

Bro he is so badass he's in the top 50 two times - Theoddone

14 Sosuke Aizen - Bleach Sosuke Aizen - Bleach

Now I realize that people are dumb.

One of the top badass male in anime history

He is most badass, patient Gillian of all time

15 Monkey D Luffy - One Piece Monkey D Luffy - One Piece Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

His second gear is badass though - Theoddone

One minute he's a goffy dumbass monkey that says and does stupid things, and then boom! He becomes this awesome badass, that says deep stuff and inspires awe. Kinda like Sakata Gintoki

Not as badass as Zoro but definitely should be on this list. I'm surprised that he's not. luffy 3rd gear could defs beat Naruto

Wwwwhaaat?!? no fair,dudes.he is cool and badass like zoro too.AND EAT YOUR HEART OUT,SASUKE WHERE YOU ARE!

16 Piccolo - Dragonball Z Piccolo - Dragonball Z Piccolo is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. He first appeared in chapter 161 of the Dragon Ball manga in the Shonen Jump magazine on February 22, 1988. He is a member of the alien Namekian race and has abilities such as ki manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, more.

People should have more respect to Piccolo. He's one of the wisest and most ass-kicking characters in the franchise. This guy almost defeated Goku. Not only that, but he also killed BOTH Goku AND Raditz in one shot. He's also the one who trained not only Gohan, but also Gotenks and Trunks to be tough, strong badasses themselves. Even Vegeta would admit that he has surpassed his power level.

Not to mention he has that Lone Wolf additude about him.

One of the most badass character

Raised Goku's kid for him, was always willing to fight, and at one point was even the strongest Z fighter when he (SPOILER) fused with Kami

17 Jotaro Kujo - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jotaro Kujo - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jotaro Kujo is a fictional character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series created by Hirohiko Araki and is the delinquent protagonist of Stardust Crusaders .

What's more badass then beating your enemies into dust without raising a finger?

He's a badass.

This should be at least in top 30! SPOILER: My man defeated Dio (one of the best villain in series) just cause he pissed him off. He is clever, logical and kinda moody.

Yare Yare Daze...

18 Sesshomaru - Inuyasha Sesshomaru - Inuyasha

How is he not the top badass? He has the grace of the moon and every move ever made him was precise and calculated. Feared by all and revered by none. He bears the mark of the first born with the crescent moon on his forehead and his ever so perfectly jagged edges. His remarks are on point and he's followed by his mothers pelt. He's the definition on perfection from his beautiful silver locks to his one of a kind hakama and don't even get me started talking on the sheer glory of his manhood!
Looking for best of the best? Sesshoumaru is the way to go

The strongest and most unstoppable force of nature in the anime world. I'm sure others would argue, and I would concede that Goku may beat him in a fight. But Goku has never faced an opponent as analytically smart, strong, immune, and badass as Sesshoumaru. Easily beats the series antagonist Naraku by himself! And it only got easier when he got the sword Bakusaiga.

He should have been in the top 5. He's the true definition of badass. Besides he's much more powerful now that he has Bakusaiga. SESSHOMARU ALL THE WAY!

He should have towered over Itachi. He's the definition of badass. His powers are at no limits and no one could ever stop him from the moment he obtained Tokijin and even more stronger when he got Bakusaiga and a newly regenerated left arm.

19 Gaara - Naruto Gaara - Naruto Gaara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is the jinchuuriki of the one-tailed shukaku and can control sand that is stored in his gourd.

When you're badass, you can kick butt and look awesome while doing it. If you can kick but, look awesome, have the coolest anime power PERIOD, and are capable of doing all that by only moving your hands, then badass doesn't even BEGIN to cover it.

Plus no eyebrows, BONUS POINTS!

Gaara has been one of my favourite badass characters in many years. I just knew I was going to like him when I first saw him.

And he gets the most character development of all Naruto characters - DreadLocker

Gaara is Badass! He somewhere looks so cool, I really love his character. Bad guy turn Good.

He was badass when he was a kid but once he grew up... he is no longer badass.
His brother is though! Kankuro asked Gaara to do the Hidden Sand Samba. That takes guts.

20 Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

This guy causes explosions by snapping his fingers, oh, sorry let me say that again. HE IS SO awesome HE CUAES EXPLOSIONS BY JUST SNAPPING. And to top it all off he can look hot when he does it as well. He deserves to be in the top ten.

He is so badass that he alone can kill a man with his fingers.

Definition of badass..Roy Mustang!

WHY IS HE THIS LOW? Has no one here seen Brotherhood? Does no one here remember how he had to be forced by several other heroes NOT to murder one of the most powerful beings in the series, after completely destroying its body with the snap of his fingers? When Envy turns into a massive figure in the shape of a draconian hellbeast, he doesn’t so much as flinch. All he says is, ‘you’ve made yourself a bigger target,’ and proceeds to explode Envy’s eyes. No one here remember how he ripped out Lust’s heart with his bare hands, was then gored by Lust, and then, with that injury, burned the wound closed and then singlehandedly destroyed the near-immortal homunculus? He was rendered blind, and just kept roasting his enemies. He defeated two Homunculi singlehandedly, more than any other character. Literally every other homunculus in the series was either beaten by several people, another homunculus, or after being severely weakened. But not here. Not one of them stood any kind of ...more

22 Sanji - One Piece Sanji - One Piece Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, as well as the former sous chef of the Baratie. He is also the third son of the Vinsmoke Family, thus making him more.

Sanji is not just strong, he is also really smart and is always one step ahead of everyone else. He always saves people, more so than anyone else. Plus his main role in the crew is a COOK and he is the only one who doesn't use a weapon or devil fruit. Yet in spite of that, Sanji is still one of the top 3 fighters in the crew, with extreme speed and the ability to fly and create fire with his legs. If that isn't badass, I wonder what is.

Have you read the manga lately? Damn, his speed is out of this world!

All right, so he's not the most badass when it comes to fighting skills. BUT, you can not deny that he looks cool when he's just chilling, hands in pocket, eyes closed and with cigarette hanging from his mouth. Sometimes you can't help but go WOW!

Sanji is the GOAT

24 Inuyasha - Inuyasha Inuyasha - Inuyasha

Short temped cute and half demon what more can I say

Inuyasha starts out with only his claws, and a very arrogant cocky jerkish personality. As the series goes on, he gets a badass sword that gets some badass moves. He is a DEMON which is badass by it's self. He has a badass demon side where he goes serial badass mode and he get's a new badass look. He jerkish arrogant cocky nature(Which tones downs as the series progresses), is badass by it's self as well. Seriously, this guy is definitely qualifies for being badass. - Aurothon

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

I honestly think he's less badass than some of the other characters listed below him because at the end he's upset because no one's coming to help him, as if he put most of his faith in them saving him.

I don't know why he's on so small position but he was almost like god that is something heh?

He can not be touched by pretty much anyone and anything and can throw an 80 story office building across a city and can "deflect" any attack (bullets, explosives, lasers, and pretty much anything that the military can throw at him). His power is very diversified and has a multitude of different capabilities. One word, badass.

This guy can kick ass in his sleep. Literally. He once took a bullet to the brain and still can laugh as he mercilessly annihilates any and all competition.

29 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, more.

How is Madara this low he drops a rock on an army the first hour he comes back from the dead and chops a mountain in half then he revives himself I mean think about that, who revives themself. It is also revealed that everything that happened in Shippuden was his plan that was set into motion like a hundred years before the series takes place.

"Sasuke is bad ass" Well did he beat the five kage at once? NOPE. MADARA DESTROYED EVERYONE.

30 Lelouch - Code Geass Lelouch - Code Geass 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.

He is a smart, calculative, military genius who may come out as just being heartless. But its that type of deceptive and hidden personality that makes him such a badass. Just when you think you have figured him out... BAM he surprises you with something unexpected. This guy gives up his life so people can feel good about themselves, maybe even to the point that he knew that his bloodline and special power would not only be dangerous, it would also mean his very existence would make him a feared outcast. I don't care what anyone says about this guy. It takes 100% badassness to sacrifice yourself for the world. I dunno about you, but I'd hate to die with a bad reputation amongst majority of the world.

He is the ONLY one with brain among all those people in that list. Although he commit many evil deed, he never denied them, and act for the best of the world

Lelouch is the kind of guy who can handle any kind of situation, it is a military genius, and political manipulation. He makes brilliant plans and predicts the movement of opponents even in worst case scenarios.

First character in my anime list so why should I write a reason for it?

He's incredibly badass and good-looking and an all-round awesome character:)) He has a very high pain tolerance as seen in multiple episodes like when he fights zommari leroux and completely severs the tendons in one side of his own arm and leg still manages to kick ass with his awesome zanpakuto and save Rukia at the same time.
Probably the only one who could wear hair 'curlers' and make a pink sakura flower weapon look sexy and manly as hell.

He got his ass kicked by Ichigo. Then he ran away and after that he still dissrepsects ichigoand thinks that he is better than him.. What a loser. Also the biggest dick from the big 3s

Most powerful character of dbz

Second or third most powerful character of dragon ball z and has the justice of goku and cockiness of vegeta

34 Zaraki Kenpachi - Bleach Zaraki Kenpachi - Bleach

Definition of badass. Loves to fight more than saiyans He's as badass as to give his enemies handicap! Eye patch on one eye and bells on hair to let enemies hear him before they die. He hopes they won't die fast but well... Last time he fought it took one page...
"Long time no see" to a blind man cutting him up And he still won with his sense of touch alone (every other was turned off by the blind guy).

What... I myself am a DBZ and One Piece fan but when it comes to badasses bleach has a few strong contenders, how can ichigo be 7 while kenpachi is 24, don't take me wrongly Zorro is one of my favourite characters and One Piece is my most favourite anime, I unequivocally love it but I must say although Zorro is one of the most badass characters out there but he ain't as badass as kenpachi and other shocker is that Yamamoto is not even in top 25!

How any why is Ichigo #7 and Zaraki #25? This is absurd, they should switch places.

Kenpachi should be number one! Or, at least in the top 10. He loves fighting and is the only captain without a bankai. Also, if Kenpachi was ever to get bankai, he would probably be stronger than Ichigo.

35 Gildarts Clive - Fairy Tail Gildarts Clive - Fairy Tail

He's one of the most powerful and dangerous anime characters I've ever seen! He's so powerful the citizens of Magnolia (the city where he lives) had to RESHAPE the entire city so that he doesn't accidentaly destroy some of the buildings on his way home. Since he's a mage he has lot's of dangerous spells, his signature move is called CRASH, an extremely powerful Caster-Type Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces, it can even be used to both crack Magic into pieces, nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic's power and to deflect it, his other spell is called DISSEMBLY MAGIC: a Caster-Type Magic that creates a net-like pattern which runs straight through whatever it touches, regardless of its tangibility. However, instead of being destroyed, the objects that are touched split apart and form numerous, smaller versions of the original, when used on a living organism, the recipient gets reduced into small, doll-like versions of themselves, ...more

I mean, they reshaped a city to stop him from breaking it, think about that for a moment, they reshaped WHOLE CITY to stop him from destroying it by accident.

This dude ripped out a serial killer's heart in less than a second when he was 12 years old. If that doesn't scream "badass," I don't know what does. - OPZoroark

From an amazing assassin family, showing great promise. He is smart and ruthless.

I loved him so much makes my heart keep going I have drawings for him and make him alive in my computer so I cannot be lonely again

The most badass thing about him isn't his ability to kill, it's about his tolerant of it.

42 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack On Titan Mikasa Ackerman - Attack On Titan Mikasa 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. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest more.

I love Mikasa. She may seem somewhat cold on the outside, but she's actually very caring and she's not afraid to cut down anyone who threatens the people closest to her. And she's by far the best with the titan-killing equipment. She's also very beautiful. She is my favorite character in Attack on Titan.

The most kuudere badass ever

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

Yes, Naruto. And why? Because he always kept fighting, no matter how much pain his opponent caused him. He always gets up and won the fight, even the character is ten times as strong as him and repetitive beat him down. Naruto's badass fights were against Mizuki, Haku, Koba, Neji, Kabuto, Gaara, Sasuke, and most badass of all, he kicked Orochimaru's ass.

Also, the fight against Haku shows that Naruto is even more badass than Sasuke. Because after Sasuke got defeated, Naruto beat Haku alone. Like when he beat Orochimaru.

I know he may not be as badass as Gaara or Kakashi, but he was always a badass. Protecting his friends from anyone even if it's a big guy who's stronger than himself. That, ladies and gentlemen, is badass. Not to mention he is a rebel and a loner.

Naruto is badass why is he this low like he is the strongest character in the series and he has surpass all the hokages and never gives up he one of a kind not like the others that don't do anything Plus he is the main point in the Naruto&Naruto Shippuden series!

well DUH!

Laugh out loud, you guys need to get your eyes checked or you guys need a dictionary because you don't know the definition for badass. Toph is the most badass character ever but no point telling you guys about it cause you don't the the meaning. However, Toph might be a little blind girl but she is just awesomely badassly awesome ( hope that word makes sense )

SHE is the definition for badass, We are not talking about strong (which toph is) we are talking about being badass which toph definitely is especially for a 12 year old blind girl, she is a kick ass.

Toph is a little blind girl.. However... She controls earth better than goku controls power... And could beat anyone in this list

She is awesome, but it's not an anime. It's an American show.
