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

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

She is the embodiment of craziness

I envy her for her determination.

She's a psycho yandere, but she's my favorite character in The Future Diary!

2 Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter

Seriously, this guy gets orgasms off a little boys who punch and fight him. That's pretty disturbing if you ask me.

No need for explanation

3 Ladd Russo - Baccano! Ladd Russo - Baccano!

After Yuno,the craziest.

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

4 Nina Einstein - Code Geass Nina Einstein - Code Geass

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 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

6 Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom Karma Akabane - Assassination Classroom

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.

Karma is so crazy and sadistic and awesome!

7 Solf J. Kimblee - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood Solf J. Kimblee - Fullmetal Alchemist/Brotherhood

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

8 Father Alexander Anderson - Hellsing
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!

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

This guy is crazy! He even eats his own nails! Not just the fingertips, the whole fingers and hands as well! - TwilightKitsune

10 Pierrot Le Fou - Cowboy Bebop V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 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?

12 Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi

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.

13 Katsura Kotonoha - School Days Katsura Kotonoha - School Days

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

14 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.
15 Nagito Komaeda - Super Dangan Ronpa 2 Nagito Komaeda - Super Dangan Ronpa 2

He has to be in Top 10! - Tuana123

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 Izaya Orihara - Durarara Izaya Orihara - Durarara

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

17 Juuzou Suzuya - Tokyo Ghoul Juuzou Suzuya - Tokyo Ghoul

I feel sorry for Juuzou... - TwilightKitsune

18 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

19 Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy (born as kaede), is a fictional Japanese Anti-Heroine, and Anti-Villianess, who is the main protagonist of her debut source, a manga officially known as Elfen Lied [alfen leed], written and illustrated by Lynn Okamoto, which was best known for it's T.V. adaptation of the same name, Directed by more.

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
