The Contenders: Page 2

21 Gol D. Roger - One Piece

Dude! he was pirate king... King of all Pirates that had "Devil fruit abilities" and better than all Marines...He was at top in One peace and is respectable by even his enemies... What more do you mean by badass...go watch "one piece"

22 Killua Zoldyck - Hunter x Hunter Killua Zoldyck - Hunter x Hunter

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

He is 12 yo and could kill an opponent in a matter of seconds. He is super smart too even adults give their thumbs up.

On word BADASS

23 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.

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

Kenshiro means badass in Japanese

This should be number 1 not vegeta!

24 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!

I don't know wot u guys are thinking...placing alucard at 9 and roy at 24..badass is not about being angry or is just doing something against yhe norm...kakashi is nowhere to be least roronoa zoro sits right...well m voting for Roy Mustang...the most badass character in fullmetal seasons...peace

26 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.

So badass that can even make badass Natsu cry

Yep totally badass

27 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.

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

28 Yusuke Urameshi - YuYu Hakusho Yusuke Urameshi - YuYu Hakusho

Yusuke urameshi is not only the main character if the series Yu Yu Hakusho, but he is the biggest badass to ever walk on the Earth. He is one man, who with the help of his friends and allies take down many powerful demons who pose a threat to the universe. Yusuke faces these powerful demons in order to protect the ones that he loves and anyother person in need. His spirit gun could arguably compete with the famous kamehameha. Yusuke Urameshi is one 15 year old boy who takes down demons that could destroy the human world. He is just that badass.

29 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!

This super strong demon is the real badass of anime!

30 Shanks - One Piece Shanks - One Piece

Shanks is the 1 who inspired luffy to become a pirate and he saved his life

He made half the people on whitebeards ship to pass out because he's so bad ass


Shanks is really damn cool

Should be higher than Gildarts, just saying. can fight with one arm!

Shanks is this Strong without a devil fruit

32 Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes is a childhood friend of Erza Scarlet. When he lost his own memory, he was a Dark Mage who desperately sought to revive Zeref via the R-System. Jellal served as the main antagonist of the Tower of Heaven arc and is currently a member and co-founder of Crime Sorcière.
33 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!

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

I think he is the best. He uses the best Alchemy! The name Fullmetal Alchemist is the coolest!

Oh, guys, come on... he's the Fullmetal Alchemist! Youngest State Alchemist in history, with a badass metal arm, a badass metal leg, badass alchemy, plus the fact that he's the son of Van Hohenheim, a human Philosopher's Stone.

My favorite anime character

35 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!

36 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden Madara Uchiha - Naruto Shippuden

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.

Madara is the no. 1 God? This is list is the worst list ever! It doesn't have anything that is important.. No offense.. Truth is always bitter! - archiesweirdmysteries

Why the hell is he so low in this list. he's the most badass character I have ever seen. Madara is a true god. Everything that happened in Naruto shippuden was played on his hand. I demand a repoll for this list!

37 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.

38 Pain/Nagato - Naruto

Pain in the world

39 Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki is a fictional character and an antihero in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.

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!

I don't know how you people think. Diffinetly Zaraki, Allucard, and Levie should be in the top ten. And, I agree with the previous comment, if they are not in the top, this list is bad.

40 Hei - Darker Than Black

The only reason he ain't in the top ten because darker than black sin't that known series. But check it out you will love hei

Before this guy became a contractor he used to kill them for sport and fun while everyone else in the world needs 20+ people to kill one on top of that he wears a bad ass disguise and while every other anime takes a few episodes to kill one guy he just kills them in a matter of seconds

1) Besides killing people with superpowers when he hadn't, and being the most awesome killer in the series and a super powerful contractor, he's HOT and he's a good actor when it comes to tricking the police or the ennemies.
2) He shows in Season 2 that after years of drinking he can still fight, and even after losing his powers!

Isn't that enough?
