Biggest Badasses In Anime


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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

42 Byakuya Kuchiki - Bleach Byakuya Kuchiki - Bleach

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.

43 Pain/Nagato - Naruto

Pain in the world

44 Trafalgar Law - One Piece Trafalgar Law - One Piece

Just a straight up boss, slices mountain ranges up with his sword... Don't mess with the Law!

Law is badass and he has the badass fruit he's a walkimg operation table and has has his beast countershock move along with scaple and shambles

45 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.

46 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?

47 Sebastian Michealis - Kuroshitsuji

Sebastian Michaelis is a truly badass character if you ask me, after all how often is it to see, a devil and a butler" like him? He loves cats, he's a great cook. He can mend his jacket while being on the battlefield. He has the amazing power to make even guys squeal (grell ). And, unlike other characters he doesn't need a huge sword/weapon or a very powerful one either, some silverware will do just fine. He defeats his enemies with elegance and cruelty while still being one hell of a butler!
P.S. did I mention he managed to save his master, get rid of bombs on a train AND stop the train in a record time? Or that he's a womanizer? Or that he got shot by lots of bullets and then stood up JUST FINE? Or that he twisted a drug-dealer's arm without even touching him?

Come on! He's so badass that it's like impossible to kill him. Remember the fight with him and Grell? He was holding back so far to where he had to use only his tailcoat jacket. AFTER LOSING HIS ARM!

Sebastian is a demon! An incredibly hot sexy one too! He is as badass as you can get! He is an expert in everything and does everything with style

Okay now I am pretty sure something is wrong with this list I mean if Sebastian and Levi aren't in top 10 than I don't know why I'm here anymore

52 Trunks Trunks Trunks (トランクス, Torankusu) is the first Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla .
53 Mugen - Samurai Champloo

Take away superpowers.. and we only got mugen and spike (the cowboy).. these two guys are in animes like Batman (no superpowers) for Superman (he has underwear over pants)

Wow. I absolutely ADORE Mugen! Why is he so lowly ranked?!

If dying means bowing down to the likes of you bastards, I'd rather die on my feet with my head held high.

A break dancing samurai.

54 Ulquiorra Cifer - Bleach

My favorite Bleach character. This guy is a badass without even trying. And it's kind of hard to believe he's a villain, because he doesn't seem that violent. It doesn't seem like he really fights unless he's ordered to or he's provoked. Other than that, he's not that violent. He's ' cool!


Ulquiorra is not only bad ass, but looks bad ass, sounds bad ass, acts bad bad ass, he even sounds bad ass. I don't know why he isn't in the top 10

Honestly, how can anyone talk about badass without mentioning Ulquiorra?

55 Kakashi Hatake - Naruto Kakashi Hatake - Naruto Kakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

It would take a whole lifetime to fool him.

-He has had a hard past that has shaped the way he acts.
-He is extremely powerful.
-He makes a great leader.
-He is funny.
-His hair is the best anime hair ever.

He is a real badass... Like every time you see him fighting you see new jutsus... You never know how strong kakashi really is... Also he is so smart and can discover his ennemie's weakness before fighting him

Ohh myy! The pervert Kakashi... I believe he is the biggest badass of all! - archiesweirdmysteries

56 Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom

What's to be said? He's excellent at combat, incredibly smart, and has one of the best entrances into the series that I've seen in any anime. Not to mention he's very attractive (this coming from a straight male).

At the same time, though, they kept him from being TOO strong, which is something a lot of badass characters suffer from.

Karma has a strong attitude to combat, overpowering other students that have a sturdier build. He simply looks like an intelligent badass, and acts like one. Simply to put in the fact his balance is well done. From first glance, Karma definitely tops as a powerful opponent.

What else is there to say? He was the first one to ever harm the "immortal" being, right when he had just been intoduced. On top of that, he's also great at close combat and formulating tactics, not to mention he's incredibly smart. The mangaka did a great job portraying Karma as a sadistic, powerful badass while still managing to keep him a (somewhat) background character. Kudos to Karma-kun!

57 Rias Gremory - High School DxD Rias Gremory - High School DxD

Love her but she is not badass

hell no

58 Deidara - Naruto Shippuden Deidara - Naruto Shippuden
59 Ken Kaneki Ken Kaneki

He's badass because that's just one of his many qualities. Kaneki can be painted many colors. Weak, Afraid, Martyr, King, Pawn, Suicidal, Insane, Kind, Optimistic, Brutal, Giving, Self-sacrificing, Ruthless, Indecisive, Endlessly Useless, Liar, Baka, and of course, Badass. Just like his hair, he is a blank canvas for anything you ask. That, and his dialogue is usually quite epic. Other than that, many people find him inspiring. They are attracted to the idea of a wimpy nerd becoming stronger in a more angsty way and within a short time span. That's what makes him badass.

At the start he was a weak boy but since he became a ghoul he became very strong and his 1eye is human and the other ghoul so you can say he is half but he is a total badass and deserves to be be one of the top ten!

Of course he was badass after transforming into white haired ghoul it was so badass when he beat that mask's ass...

He goes from desperate and kinda wimpy to silent and independent. Where is he on this list?

60 Saitama - One-Punch Man Saitama - One-Punch Man Saitama is the main protagonist of the webcomic and anime series One Punch Man, who could easily destroy a continent with one punch. He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.

He literally makes everyone look like air particles compared to him. I honestly worry that he might accidentally punch someone.

Saitama doesn't care. That's what makes him badass.

He gets pissed for being too overpowered.

Tell ya what...if a chaerctar on this list has hair they can go below him
