Should be in top5

Why is he so low? - Xavier77

Vag-eater. He's a pretty dope dude.

I don't even understand why people are drawn to lines (itachi) duckbutt (sasuke) or L

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

Itachi is the very definition of cool he's a badass and rocks also he's the kindest guy in the world I love him and I'm sure everyone else does too

Well everyone knows this guy's all knows strength. He's just a guy. Well in my opinion he should be top 11 but nope there's no top eleven - VictiniAndReshiram

Cooler than Sasuke (who is immature and deluded and cold hearted) yet the kindest character in Naruto.

I lovee him go follow him on instagram @xx.uchiha_itachi.xx

3 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Goku - Dragon Ball Z Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Because Goku is so naive and innocent that people keep forget how badass and cool he can become when he gets serious in fights? When he's angry, his super saiyan mode looks really cool and formidable; not to mention his badass SSJ3 transformation as well

He's naive and innocent, but on the battlefield he's the most badass and formidable being in the entire world. Just look at his SSJ3 appearance with all those sparkling lightnings, majestic hair and cool face! He's the kindest friend but is also the most dangerous enemy ever. - Goku02

How is Goku lower than Naruto. Goku is a lot better than Naruto

He's cool

5 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.

He is badass... At eating

His weirdness and smartness both makes him the coolest

He is so damn intelligent which makes him cool as well as smart

L is awesome I love his sarcasstic way of talking and how (spoilers) unlike near he didn't need help and he was the one who had the idea of making multiple fake Ls he was so good that when he wasnt in the show it got way worse I reccomend taking a break after L dies so the show can get better

6 Levi Ackerman - Attack on Titan Levi Ackerman - 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.

This guy is chill but at the same time will not give up on his comrades. He has a plan and he is not afraid to use it! I personally think that is pretty cool.

Levi is a pair of pants, but he's pretty badass for a pair of pants.

Yes Levi, you won it. Now, one more to go, that Uchiha boy!

Great character

7 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Sasuke and Itachi are the only characters in Naruto that makes me keep watching it. Honestly I don't care about the other characters. He isn't annoying, he isn't useless, and he doesn't care about anyone. Cool, calm, and keeps moving forward to accomplish his goal.

Sasuke is cold. I guess that is what makes him cool.

Sasuke is number one in this category. No one can argue with this.

No one? Speak for yourself. I can argue vehemently on what a jackass Sasuke is.

I love sasgay

8 Aizen - Bleach
9 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.

The coolest female character ever!

She is the first female character that is bad-ass...

Mikasa should be WAY higher on the list.

She's cool

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Trunks - Dragon Ball Z 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 .

He's the coolest and smartest kid. He should #2 with Vegeta #1

Why wasn't he added before? He's the 3rd coolest DBZ character after Vegeta and Piccolo and the smartest kid.

Disappointed that he's up here smh

12 Tendo Pein - Naruto

The way Pein carries himself with an air of confidence and emotionless is super cool. On top of that he's got crazy powers that he uses while barely moving and has the rinnegan. Too cool if you ask me, way cooler than Sasuke. I think he should either be number one or number two or behind Itachi.

A super cool guy. Tendo is sharp-looking, deep-voiced, imposing and masterful. An Akatsuki leader, who controls gravity.

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

This whole list seems preposterous. For starters, Might Guy? Really? His whole character is based upon being outshown by Kakashi in a "cool-factor" kind of way. I hate to be one of those people who does/says this, but Kakashi should definitely be above him! I don't want to push Kakashi onto you people, but I do want you to think about this list a little bit. Are these people really "cool"? Or are they just your favorite characters?

He's awesome should be number 3 after itachi at number 1 and sasuke at number 2

His mask makes Him super cool. He is cool. Sasuke first, kakashi second and itachi third

In my opinion Kakashi hatake IS THE SWAGGIEST ANIME CHARACTER EVER! I love how cool and calm Kakashi always is, and he's really hot so that's a plus! and I love when he one ups guy sensei! it's so funny! and also it just shows how cool Kakashi really is... like when he uses the line "did you say something? " OMGG I'm FANGIRLING he's SO ATTRACTIVE... but anyways you should vote for Kakashi hatake because he's a boss ass bitch

14 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.

Gaara and Itachi are the best in this show.I love both of you

He sure is cool

Gaara is veerry cool,but not cooler than sasuke.I still think that gaara should be a little higher in this ranking

15 Deidara - Naruto Shippuden Deidara - Naruto Shippuden

Deidara is so cool. He flies thru the air on his clay birds with his long hair in the wind, he's a master of art and explosives, and a free spirit who enjoys battle.


16 Yami Bakura - Yugioh Yami Bakura - Yugioh
17 Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop
18 Ichigo Kurosaki - Bleach Ichigo Kurosaki - Bleach Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

In fact this should be Top 5 but you know orange hair if his hair is black then I will put him to Top 5 - VictiniAndReshiram

He is the coolest hero of all time... Way better than that dumbass sasuke.

The gruff and rebellious attitude, yet caring side, make Ichigo so cool. He has a cool and unique sense of street style, plus he just exudes badass.

He is the Best

19 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.

A main character who got strong just by eating a special fruit doesn't deserve to be in this list Naruto uzumaki and ichigo kurosaki only got stronger because of hard work and had to take risks to become stronger

For example ichigo became a soul reaper but also had a hollow inside of him
Naruto trained and became stronger but had a demon fox inside of him that made the villagers hate him

No main character got strong without suffering (except sailor moon) so that's why I don't like luffy

Oh, I almost forgot he can't also swim because of the devil fruit, when he needed to know how to swim as he needed it to venture the open ocean as a pirate

For those saying that luffy "just ate a fruit and instantly got stronger" please watch more of one piece. When his a child his grandpa who is considered to be the hero of marines trained him, not just training, trainings that are to extreme for a child( maybe 8-10 yrs old I forgot) like what you say?

Being thrown to the forest alone at night, tied to a balloon to sky, fighting wild animals (tigers, lion, etc)
Being thrown to a bottomless pit and more

And more if you watch more of OP a lot of character who ate the devil fruits doesn't got strong because they don't have tranings or don't know how to use their power and we're defeated easily

He might not be the coolest but it's his personality is what makes him ace for the top. He is the one who probably can beat Naruto and Ichigo. He cares more for his friends than Naruto and Ichigo probably does. What do you mean didn't do any hard work? He did! Tons too. Eating the devil fruit only gave him powers, that doesn't mean he doesn't have to train to learn how to use it.

Whoever said Luffy just ate a fruit and "instantly" got stronger, that doesn't mean anything. You guys are probably a 7 year old that just assumes One piece isn't as good as any other anime you watch. What if you ate a fruit? Would you instantly get stronger? No! You have to learn how to use and control it. Ichigo only needs to swing is sword and yell "Bankai! " Naruto, he trained, but I still think he isn't as good as a ninja.

Perhaps his personality suits his clothes because he certainly doesn't understand the ninja dressing code because what ninja wears "orange" when fighting? Including real ...more
