Top Ten Emo Anime CharactersBEWARE: I am NOT Emo, I just love their lustrious character. I'd like to see who's king of all Emos.
The Top Ten
He is amazing! Brilliant, and doesn't really need anyone's help, but appears to be lonley, which makes you just want to hug him. I personally love how intelligent he is, but he doesn't have much confidence in himself, even though he knows he is right (like how he knew Light Yagami was Kira throughout the whole series; because he is lonley and Light acted as a friend, and he is not confident when others disagree, he did not want to admit that he was correct about this).
L is a cute, awkward sugar addict, he really loves his sweets, cakes, tea and sugar cubes! I too, also love how smart L is, he suspected Light ever since and L is ALWAYS RIGHT. He is the worlds number 1 detective (not to mention he is so full of style! ) But it is really sad how lonely he is, even though he chooses to work alone. He allowed Light to participate inside the Kira investagation, but then Light did act as a friend, but ONLY to gain his trust. L knew he was going to die, and had a back-up plan (Mello) so he was always one step ahead of Light, and eventually Light was defeated.
L is definitely no ordinary emo
The reason why I was interested to watch death note before I knew anything about what was really the anime about, was L face. Creep me out so much! I thought he was some kind of evil pervert or something. Watched the series and fell in love with him instantly! So sweet and charming, and those eyeshadows makes him look so hot! Love L!
He probably ISN'T emo, but he sure is awesome!
In the live action films he says to Light 'I'm depressed'. I believe that happens in the Japanese dub of the anime as well. He had no friends D: until that psychopathic murderer whom I hate came and pretended to be his friend.
He was just an innocent kid who loved life being around his clan and family. You love your family and you have this innocence about you that you don't know anything yet. Unaware that there was gonna be a Coup d'état, a conflict between the clan and the village. The biggest worry is disappointing your father that's the biggest worry. But relatively he's happy and he comes from that innocence that happiness to seeing his whole clan murdered and his parents dead. And then he was put in a genjutsu and tortured in his mind as well. Here you are a kid you're just now maturing and going through all of this traumatic experience all this trauma and I can't understand why you'd not be normal after that. What person would be normal after all of that. Live in this area and you've got your family around you and then next thing you know, they're dead. Would you be normal after that? Would anyone be normal after that? No. That would traumatize anyone to a certain extent, change their perspectives ...more
Dude, this kid's always been emo. That's what I thought like, the first page that he made an appearence.
All this foolishness about him cutting himself is stupid. Yea he is kinda emo and of course he's awesome. Put yourself in his place. If your older brother who you loved and cared for suddenly turned evil and killed all of your family and then tells you to get stronger to challenge him one day, what would you do? He is all alone for a reason but his backstory and his drive makes him one of the best characters in Naruto
The dude is seriously emo. He has issues. He keeps saying "nobody understands me" and "I'm different". He regards people as nuisances who don't know anything. He is OVER emotional about certain matters (pertaining to him). I could seriously see Sasuke listening to Dashboard Confessional while cutting himself someday. (Not that I am trying to offend anyone. )
Ulquiorra is my favorite character of all time. I definitely think that he belongs on this list but I have one complaint... Emo means emotional, Ulquiorra has no emotions, until the very end (and even then he is stating he has found his heart). My favorite quote comes from the manga where his past is revealed, "The things reflected in my eyes mean nothing. The things that aren't reflected do not exist. There is nothing... In you... And in me..." His aspect of death is nihilism, and we all eventually get tired of Sasuke (I know I am...)
He kidnapped Orihime and just told her straight - "o not ask any questions. Do not say anything. You have no rights. What you hold in your hand is the rope to the guillotine above your friends' necks. Nothing more. Understand, girl. This is not a negotiation, it's an order. " with the straightest face ever. So bad ass.
Ulquiorra cifer aspect of death is emptiness so he needs to look like that
I think Ulquiorra is one of the best emo anime characters ever! Hiding from his own fellow hollows when he was still a hollow. Hiding his emotions from everyone, even Aizen. When he died, he said deep words which truly proved that he hid his emotions and only revealed it when he died. A true emo!
There is no comment needed. If you the character then you will agree that he is the best. There is no doubt that he should be top of the list.
Itachi literally looks as if he doesn't care but he actually does. Perfect emo material. Sasuke is also an emo in my opinion but I believe that Itachi is more of the emo type. Sasuke also easily gets attention unlike Itachi who can easily blend in.
I don't think so... Well.. I do a little... But come on.. He was known as the PRIDE OF THE GREAT UCHIHA CLAN... !
His hair style is so nice.
Zero should at least be in the top ten by now! He's dark and mysterious and afraid of what he could and would do to Yuki. He hides his inner self away from anybody else who might try to hurt him just like the day he turned into a vampire. What's more emo than that?
He hates vampires. He is a vampire. Dude upon all anime characters he hates himself a lot. That makes him a really strong Emo.
Zero is hot! He's so mysterious and so lonely, zero is a really sad person, I just want to give him a big hug. I was glad he ended up with yuuki at the end, but I want more romantic scenes of them together.
The best Emo of all!
You just have to look at Gaara to tell that's he's emo. Plus he loves the sight of blood, or used to before Naruto changed him
I agree that Gaara is pretty emo, but he doesn't wear eyeliner and whoever thinks that is a damn idiot. In the anime it even says that it's from not getting enough sleep..
Gaara isn't emo... Just hates everyone since he thinks they are all idiots. - Animeartist23
His entire facade and feature and ways and looks spells EMO. Need I elaborate?
Very much one of my favorites! - maddyday
I think out of all of them, Madara is the most emo of them all. After all, he wants revenge, and is really emotional even though he is strong and... I really don't know why Ulquiorra is second, he DOES look emo but that is just the way he looks because, how can someone who doesn't even have emotions be emo? He is just plain badass%~! But... anyway... I love all the characters here... even if they are emo, 'cause they all have reasons to be the way they are%!
No not emo, just obseseed with power and where in the definition of emo is power hungry tyrant that wants to be imortal.
Reallyy... ? Well if tobi is madara... Then please... Even if he is emo... He acts.. Just acts... As a four year old better... Duhh;p
He is just so negative upon the world. And he hates his parents, isn't that reason enough?
Well his hair and his opinion on death explains it all
Lelouch embodies what Emo is... Enough said
He's the main one I like so sexy and has my negitivty
"I don't know how to deal with this..." :(
She's pretty damn emo if you think abut it...
Crona is very emo, if you ask me. Sometimes I actually want to read his/her poetry sometimes for some reason..."I don't know how to deal with it! "
It isn't Crona's upbringing that made Crona emo. It's the fact that not even Crona can tell if he's a boy or a girl.
He's just plain Rebel Emo -
Im so happy that he is "alive" again, along with Sasori
Nagato is powerful than itachi & absolutely an emo natured guy
YES pain this and pain that perfect EMO!
I love ryuk and his fashion is emo! :D
Some how I found Rem more Emo than Ryuk. That apple obsession though.
I admit he's kinda weird but love him the way he is
He's from death not, no more said
I don't know
Mei is how I picture emo. She has no friends and is emotional over the idea of getting any friends. She doesn't have any fake friends and doesn't want to take help but I like how she won't let anyone take advantage of that either, at least in the beginning of the anime.
I just think it's a great emo name, I drew a emo boy and named it after her because it's a boy version of her
I'm dressing up as her for Halloween
She wears an eyepatch over one of her eyes, wears dark clothing most of the time, raven black hair, and pale skin. How much more emo could you get?
My favorite emo anime character. hanae natsuki really gave everything he have for crying, screaming
The real geek turned emo kid
Kaneki should have been no. 1
Kaneki is my life. I love him. He really should have been either 2nd or 1st
He is like no where near emo
Sanji is a lively womanizer. How the hell is he emo? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Lol A bunch of people need to learn the meaning of emo.
He is definitely not emo. HE IS A WOMANISER - EMO_TRASH
He's very edgy because he want to die. if he can't die, then he kill you
Emo embodied. A guy who's looking for another guy just so that the other guy can kill him. Not exactly happy.
YES - He is indeed very emo! He truly does hate himself!
He hates humanity. He hates himself. He is always sad or angry. He wants to die and he's immortal. How sad.
He also experienced fright ( when he first found out about his powers and accidentally killed his teachers ) and happiness ( in the short period of time that his brother Natsu was alive ( before he got revived ) ). - Goku02
Shinji is the most emo character in all of fiction! He suffers from an escapist depression amongst other social disorders and constantly struggles to hold himself together. His sole objective in life is to love and be loved back and believes that the love he does receive is undeserved due to his status as an EVA pilot. He wants to connect with people but ends up isolating himself and blocking out the world with earphones playing the same damn song on repeat. He even gives up on humanity as a whole!
Shinji may not be likable at all, but he is DEFINITELY the most emo anime character of all time. #1 all the way in my book.
Anyone seen Neon Genesis Evangelion? Or maybe End of Evangelion?
Why is this guy not number one?
Love his undercut hairstyle and his whole design. I like his eccentric personality too.
He should at least be in top ten... I mean he looks emo
The black. Hot though
His Second Name is emo
Alucard, Ciel, L, Ryuk, ANYONE from Hellsing, Death Note, and Black Butler are NOT Emo. Alucard is Goth. Ciel is Goth. L is just an introverted detective, Ryuk is Goth, and I can go ALL day on which characters are and are not Goth. Black Butler, Death Note and Hellsing is a GOTH anime. NOT an Emo anime.
This dude is just awesome. And Emo. Well, not really, but the way he looks, it gives off that "Emo" styling. Like, when you first see him, you automatically thing, "Man, this guy must be Emo."
Alucard is not Emo, Ciel is not Emo, L is not Emo, Ryuk is not Emo, Sebastian is not Emo, none of these characters from Hellsing, Black Butler and Death Note are Emo. These three anime(s) are just Dark/Gothic anime and these characters are more Gothic. Except L, he's more of an introverted guy.
I wouldn't say she is a full on hardcore emo, but living through a lot of crap, focusing all of your love and life on one person, wearing a lot of black, and being the Sasuke Uchiha of your new school. I guess that puts her somewhere on this list.
Homura is a very emo character and I don't blame her after all she's been through.
Madoka Kaname last episode. Enough said.
I can be a lot like her at times.
My favorites are trunks and Goku and Gokus son but vegeta is rude
Hi hair is black enough said
He is the greatest emo
Maybe after broly
Vegeta isn't an Emo... None of the characters from DBZ are anything like Emos...
She has bags under her eyes bangs and is into yandere boys. definitely emo
She is an emo. Because of her hair. But she is addicted of anime video games
I mean, the anime name is literally "No matter how you look at it, it's your guys' fault I'm not popular"
I'm surprised Jellal is so low. This guy wants to die. But he's the best and is extremely kind. When he was little he was strong-willed and has a strong sense in justice, then when he grew up he was possessed and wanted to die to atone for sins he hasn't committed... Now he's fighting to redeem himself and atone for everything he's done when he was being manipulated... - Goku02
Yes. Just yes. Emo to the core. He may not wear black all the time but, by far the most emo personality ever. But he's got a heart of gold. He tries not to let the past overtake him but sometimes he falters. And he fights for the woman he loved. What more can you ask for...
This guy do nothing but yeah he's emo. he's cute
It's known as goth. Get It right.
Guys, ever heard of a difference between goth and emo?
I love ciel - animeguy786
I wouldn't say he is emo, more like badass and hot. lol.
Yup he is super emo always hated, feared and ignored now he is going to remove all the hatred in this world... He overcomes every villain by good words of peace... Has the power to find even the tiniest speck of light from a dark heart... He even won the kyuubi's heart.
I never thought that he was enough till now
Dude it's not his fault for being emo.
Naruto is just the BEST!
HE IS NOT EMO! MOST OF THESE PEOPLE AREN"T EVEN EMO. Jellal though is emo. - EMO_TRASH
He's nice and cute most of the time, but he does have his moments where he's emo and stuff. The guy's had it hard by Sword Art Online standards. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Really? All black and no one thinks that he's emo?
Yup emo by nature, but so strong and sweet.
I wish he was gay
FAIRYTAIL FOR LIFE
ROGUE IS MEH KAWAII EMO SENPAI DESU CHAN
He is THE most emo kid in all of the anime I watched. Badass as hell, yeah. But he is also emo. He's like a colder Sasuke (is that even possible? Remember how cold Sasuke was for a majority of Shippuden? ). They even share similar backstories.
He is so emo, he only lives for revenge as his clan was killed of by the phantom troupe ( the spirders) so he is a lonly guy and he even seid "i do not fear death I only fear that my vangence will fade away." so and his wepon is chains wich is a dark but amazing wepen.
Come on man! He is super sexy guy. his voice actor is just favorite!
That doesn't mean he emo.
How did you manage to confuse Mikasa with Armin so easily?
He's not emo... or is he
You got the wrong dude... *yells* mikasa they mean you!
I like him But is the gay
He very passionate -end-
Not sure if anime or not
This dude likes yuki cross for unknown reasons and in I think episode 4 he tried to commit suicide and skipped duties
I can see him being emo... Way more emo than some on this list..
Sexy hot stuff
The most inspiring anime ever... Inazuma Eleven THE BEST... Endou Mamoru THE BEST!
He's hot! But I get the fact that he is quite emo, but still hot!
More like the horrifyingly perverted kid who has a mental disorder that enjoys torturing the viewers. Trust me, don't watch this disgusting, abominable excuse of an anime. It would ruin your life forever. - Goku02
This is a sexual frustrated Little Boy Not an emo. It feels like half of this list is a joke
Whoever puts this crap on every single anime list on the site, I must ask you... Why? - Haumea
Anybody who goes through this is mentally scarred...
Devitt is also kind an emo looking
Check him out he is from danganronpa and well spoilers ahead...He was formally known as Hinata Hajime but some scientist pampered around with his brain to make him 'perfect' and gave him every talent imaginable. It succeeded but all the talents left no space of his personality. He is always bored since he can predict what people will do and what will happen. Later he joined the despair organization led by Junko Enoshima, the Ultimate Despair who wants to let the whole world despair (as destroy the whole world) to make his life a little less boring. He has red eyes and extremely long black hair, it seems like he didn't care to cut it and just let it grow wildly (but I don't mind it I love(! ) long hair.)
