Top Ten Craziest Anime Characters

Some anime characters are amazing, some are despicable, and some are just plain crazy. Here are 10 of the craziest characters in anime.

The Top Ten

1 Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki

She goes around killing people, that's pretty crazy

Let's face it- Yuno is someone none of us want to meet in real life. At first, you think she's just a cute girl who has a crush on Yuki. Then, you see that she is willing to kill anyone just for Yuki, no matter if he wants her to or not. Eventually, she starts getting crazier and crazier, even almost killing Yuki at certain points. There's a reason she's called The Yandere Queen. - Elric-san

Yuno Gasai is a girl who faces fear and never NEVER NeVeR lets anyone or anything get in her way. She is an amazing cute girl who can turn on you during the blink of an eye. Look out!

I have to admit,she only became a yandere because of her life,sooo you better not mess around with the love of her life,Yuki,or you're dead meat.

2 Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter

This thing is weird. Very. Very weird.
He made me feel very uncomfortable in the first and third arc and I wish Gon and Killua had never seen him shower...

5 words: That Really Turns Me On - Solacress

The guy gets orgasms off of a kid hitting him. Seriously this is the only anime character to legitimately make me uncomfortable.

This is the only character that has actually made me feel legitimately uncomfortable. Spot on voice acting too.

I agree. The voice acting is perfect, especially in the english dub. - Solacress

3 Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom

I like his sadistic side and he super cool.

Now this is sadistic all roll up into one hot mess. Good looking, crazy, and certainly one with the fans...

He was my first crush in anime.This guy is insane when it comes to killing or assassinating someone.He is a yandere to me if you ask again.

Karma loves beating people up and getting into fights. He is a sadist who gets joy from torturing his victims with damn wasabi and mustard, and got way too excited over the chance to kill a teacher. The guy tried to kill HIMSELF just to get an advantage over Korosensei! I love him and he's insane.

4 Nina Einstein - Code Geass Nina Einstein - Code Geass Nina Einstein is a fictional character in the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Pleas go away Nina nobody likes you

God, I hate this character. Her love for the princess makes her kill thousands of people just so she can get to Zero and kill him. She goes insane for a completely stupid reason. Oh, and don't even get me started on the table. It's just messed up. - Elric-san

Look at that ugly face. Need I say more? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Ladd Russo - Baccano! Ladd Russo - Baccano!

After Yuno,the craziest.

He’s still really cool. - Undistinguished

First off, a lot of you might not even know who this guy is, because many people haven't seen Baccano! Trust me, though, this guy is insane! He's very sadistic, and loves to kill people. Numerous people on the train, the Flying Pussyfoot, were killed because of him. He even married a girl just to kill her! I mean, who does that?! There are other characters in Baccano! who are crazy, but to me, this guy was the worst. - Elric-san

6 Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi

She goes completely insane

The craziest character in Higurashi, and in my opinion, in all of anime.

I haven't actually seen Higurashi, so Shion being so low is due to that. However, her concept does make her sound insane. She can easily switch between her and her sister, Mion, so you'll never know if it's actually her. I've also seen the scene with her and Satoko, so that influenced my choice. - Elric-san

Shion. In Watanagashi-Hen and Meakashi-Hen, Shion's love interest, Satoshi, disappeared, and Shion went insane. She killed Rika Furude, Satako Hojo, Satoshi, sown twin sister, whom he asked her to look after, her grandmother, and her own younger(in the manga only) twin sister, Mion. All while laughing gleefully. And then she kills Keiichi because she thinks it's unfair that Mion's love interest survived while her love, Satoshi, died.

7 Stein - Soul Eater Stein - Soul Eater

He's a guy that likes to experiment on people and cut them up into pieces. Madness started to consume him throughout the series. He was even crazier than the villains, and that's saying something when you look at Medusa. This one, to me, was an obvious choice. - Elric-san

8 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.

He went crazy after he got power; need I say more?

9 Betelgeuse Romanée-Conti - Re:Zero Betelgeuse Romanée-Conti - Re:Zero

With exceptions like Yuno and Hisoka, most of these characters aren't even crazy. Hell, Hisoka doesn't compare with this lunatic!

Craziest number one

I find it odd how he shares the same Japanese voice actor as Kirito, Lubbock, and Soma... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He is more than crazy. I don’t have the words to describe him. - Undistinguished

10 Solf J. Kimblee - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood Solf J. Kimblee - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood Solf J. Kimblee is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

I know what you're thinking: What about Shou Tucker? Well, to me, Shou Tucker was only really insane in Brotherhood, because he was a touch more sympathetic in the first series. Also, in Brotherhood, he's more scary than crazy. Kimblee, on the other hand, is a man obsessed with explosives, and loves to get his hands on any type. He's even used people as bombs. He doesn't care about the lives of anyone. So, in my opinion, he's even crazier than Shou Tucker. - Elric-san

The Contenders

11 Izaya Orihara - Durarara Izaya Orihara - Durarara

He's just a hot ass psycho who is simply interested in humans.

He is crazy, and at same time is smart (and skilled)
I envy his madness!

I love him so much!

I don't really consider Izaya to be insane... :P - Goku02

12 Father Alexander Anderson - Hellsing
13 Juuzou Suzuya - Tokyo Ghoul Juuzou Suzuya - Tokyo Ghoul

How can someone be so crazy, physic, yet so ADORABLE

Juuzou is somehow crazy and badass and cute all at the same time!

He's insane, but cute.

I feel sorry for Juuzou... - TwilightKitsune

14 Pierrot Le Fou - Cowboy Bebop

...Just watch the episode. - Elric-san

15 Nagito Komaeda - Super Dangan Ronpa 2 Nagito Komaeda - Super Dangan Ronpa 2

All Ultimates are working together to solve this problem. How splendid, how wonderful this is!

He has to be in Top 10! - Tuana123

i love him

This guy... This guy...
I love this guy.
His messed up past and mental issues combined with his bad luck → good luck cycle sonehow ends up with him wanting to bring despair to his classmates in order for their hope to shine through, whether it's the killers hope or everyone else's he doesn't care, he just wants HOPE and he doesn't care if he needs to die for others to have it, in fact he WANTS to! He's crazy and in NY opinion, the craziest character in Danganronpa, more so than Junko (just in my opinion).

16 Junko Enoshima - Danganronpa Junko Enoshima - Danganronpa

Junko is by far the most crazy anime character I have ever seen.

17 Katsura Kotonoha - School Days Katsura Kotonoha - School Days

The only somewhat likable character from one of the worst animes of all time. Sure she was crazy at the end, but it was because of circumstances out of her control. - notbirdlandstew

Can't' blame her. Anyone would go crazy if they're around that jerk Makoto Ito for too long. - Goku02

Turned crazy because of her abusive boyfriend

18 Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail Juvia Lockser is a Fairy Tail Mage . When Juvia was young she was abandoned by her parents because she was followed by the rain . Juvia lived in a orphanage but she never felt at home there she was mistreated by the children there because she was different from them,she was a Mage she had blue hair more.
19 Usagi - Juni Taisen: Zodiac War
20 Hange Zoe - Attack on Titan Hange Zoe - Attack on Titan

Hange is so crazy I love her

21 Envy - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood Envy - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood
22 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.

Alucard is none other than Count Dracula in person, survived the end of the events recounted in Bram Stoker's Dracula and became the servant of Helsing family.
Not only that, he was born in 1431, under the name of "Vlad III Dracul" (a historical character who actually existed, also known as "Vlad the Impaler").
I love him, he is a fantastic character both psychologically and aesthetically.

The people who haven't voted are either crazy themselves, or just plain stupid. This guy is more brutal, and bloody than anybody on this list. Alexander Anderson, who himself is insane, sees alucard as a crazy monster. As well as everybody else in the anime. Honestly, this is a anime filled with crazy people, I am surprised that he wasn't even in the top 10.

23 Haruko Haruhara - FLCL Haruko Haruhara - FLCL

Again, haven't seen FLCL, but my mom has, so she told me a bit about Haruko. Let's just put it this way: the first scene she's in, she hits a kid with a Vespa, gives him CPR, then hits him on the head with her guitar. Sounds pretty nuts to me. - Elric-san

24 Haruhi Suzumiya - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Haruhi Suzumiya is the title character and female protagonist of the Haruhi Suzumiya series created by Nagaru Tanigawa.

I don't think she's that crazy. She just hates the world and kills with no hesitation. Still, she's not that crazy. - Tuana123
