Best Darling in the FranXX Characters

The Top Ten

1 Zero Two

Easily the best character on the entire show. I really love the Partner Killer's voluptuous nature in how she behaves and interacts with others, especially her darling Hiro. I also got to love how she's a rebel wanting to do her own thing. If her wish to see the ocean doesn't say anything about her as a character, then I don't know what is. And the cherry on top? Haruka Tomatsu voices her. Haven't seen Tomatsu had a breakout role like that of Zero Two since Asuna Yuuki of SAO fame. My call? Zero Two is anime's best girl of 2018.

Very unique character who has a great deal of depth to her personna. One of the few in the world she's in that can think for herself and has a goal. Managed to transition a horrific upbringing because of kind words by a like minded young boy Hiro, who had is memory erases, but is now coming back.

Unlike a lot of action anime out there, Zero Two is an actual strong and powerful female lead. Both emotionally and physically. She doesn't seem to rely on too many people and honestly, she is just so cool.

She is the coolest girl character I have seen in an Romance anime.

2 Hiro

It'll probably take some time for me to get used to him, but as a character, I think he's decent. I kind of felt like he was too much of an expy hybrid between Kirito and Shinji Ikari with the design and the personality respectively, but I can respect his resolve to try to be a good pilot again. And hey, he and Zero Two have a thing for each other. Can't wait to see how he develops.

Update: There's a lot more to Hiro than I thought there was. Hiro's Our Hero!

3 Goro

GoBro is best bro, indeed. Our best bro's done a lot for Squad 13. And let's not forget best bro risked his own life to save Ichigo. That alone makes best bro not just best bro, but best bro of ALL TIME, bro.

Protect this smog bean!

4 Mitsuru

Mitsuru's character development is amazing, as his character is one of the most complex. From a young age, Mitsuru was betrayed by the one he idolized. As a result of this, he refuses to idolize or look up to anyone again. Generally, this lack of idolization among others lead him to idolize himself, resulting in arrogance. However, his self-esteem remains rather low. He must also prove to himself that he is worthy of idolization, in a sense, explaining why he tends to partake in almost futile risks and danger. He pushes himself to the limit as a method of producing a figure he can look up to that he can also control. Generally, due to fear of betrayal as well as being thought of as weak, Mitsuru refuses to put his trust in others. However, Mitsuru still believes himself to be rather incompetent, as shown by his constant desire to prove himself. This causes him to be rather aloof, as he won’t allow others to put their trust in him, due to the possibility that he’ll disappoint them.

Oi, Mitsuru. When they call Zero Two the Partner Killer, they call Zero Two the Partner Killer. Watch the third episode for yourself and you'll know what I mean.

Had the most character development. Went from Draco Malfoy to adorablobs.

Went from egoistic trash to adorable and loving dad uwu

5 Zorome

I've only seen two episodes right now as I write this, but man, I can't stand Zorome! He might get better in later episodes I watch, but I hate how egotistical and arrogant he acts towards Hiro over the fact Hiro was able to pilot Strelizia with Zero Two. Hopefully, his character gets better over time as I catch up with the new episodes.

His a jerk at the first episode but after watching more I come to realize how innocent minded and cute he was.

He’s really funny and cuteO3O,there might be some character development for the past few epss

6 Futoshi

I feel bad, he really loved Kokoro but she broke their promise
I love how he moves on and learns to accept Kokoro and Mitsuru unlike Ichigo who still tried to get with Hiro while swatting away best bro Goro
Plus, when Kokoro and Mitsuru lose their memories, he gets angry and tries to get them back together instead of trying to get Kokoro again, knowing he had the opportunity

He is the most unfortunate character. He has failed in love and most likely will not get a new one. Nothing practically not prominent, humiliated by others about excess weight and character. Yes, his story is the only reason why I continue to watch this anime. (Sorry for my English).

7 Ichigo

Kind of as of right now, I simultaneously love and hate Ichigo. On one hand, I can admire her for wanting to protect Hiro and make him strong again. But on the other hand, I feel she's too much of a worrywart to the point she almost put her allies in danger for not countering off those spider klaxosaur swarm things. That, and I kind of feel Crunchyroll tries too hard to promote her character on social media anywhere they can that it kind of gets annoying. Then again, I'll just have to wait and see if Ichigo grows on me.

Sexy also go add her new instagram acc @ichigo.zero

İchgo is my best girl we are like twins we have same persnolity

I think Ichigo's character is one of the strongest in Darling in the FranXX. Let me explain, she obviously sense the start has liked Hiro, but he repeatedly rejects her for Zero Two, she keeps trying to have him but fails. But this character teaches us to let go of people already lost. (Also Hiro is trash) She never let go of Hiro fully, she just understood to see him as more of a friend, while at the end she likes Goro. She teaches us to never let go of those who don't love us the way we want them to, but to befriend them. So, Ichigo is best girl, change my mind. But I'm still mad for when she kissed Hiro. 🗿🗿

8 Kokoro

Kokoro trusts her instincts, making her arguably one of the most human of the bunch. ALSO! The only reason she betrayed Futoshi was to save Mitsuru from himself. She was also fully aware that Futoshi would be able to handle this, as he continued to support them both in the end of the series, being the first character to congratulate Mitsuru on becoming a father. Generally, Kokoro is just so sweet and has everyone's best interests in mind.

Please stop with the negative comments about Kokoro
She did break Futoshi's heart, and she felt horrible about it
But it was for a reason: in the scene where Mitsuru loses his cool from Ikuno, Kokoro could tell something was wrong about Mitsuru and she knew he needed someone to help him
Please, Kokoro is innocent and sweet
She doesn't deserve the hate she is getting because she broke Futoshi's heart

she is really sweet and is just listening to her heart so don´t blame her for that everybody is making mistakes and we should forgive

, I can't stand this type of girl like Kokoro... And I would rather put Mitsuru with Ikuno :// and Kokoro with Futoshi

9 Nana
10 Miku

Miku deserves better, man. Especially considering the poor girl has to put up with that brat Zorome as her partner.

Best girl. QT. Miku+Zorome best couple. No contest

The Contenders

11 Dr. FRANXX
12 Ikuno

Ikuno deserves so much better. She's so incredibly ambitious, especially during high-stakes battles, not to mention her honesty towards her other teammates. We also love the lesbian representation.

Works so hard to protect and fight from VIRM and keep klaxosaurs safe
