Best Gintama Characters

The Top Ten

Sakata Gintoki

He is such a legend. Watching him feels like watching myself starring in an anime.

He is one of the best anime characters out there because he is not like everyone

Best character in all of fiction

On par with guts for best character.

Hijikata Toshiro

Strong, grumpy, handsome guy in a uniform who's a softy at heart. What's not to love?

So this is what they mean by summoning Hijikata-san in Fate/Grand Order with mayo as his catalyst...

He's an angel. Even though he's a demon towards his subordinates and even Kondo but I felt like he has gone softer because of Gintoki. Hijikata is strong and independent and he deserves to live a happy life with whoever he loves. I love every episode of him with Gintoki. I love his personality.

He's an angel. I love his personality.

Okita Sougo

Never a dull moment with Sougo around. My favourite Shinsengumi guy.

He's so seriousfunny or serinny. But super strong with bazooka and sword

Sadist Prince! I love him the best! he has cute face but he's dangerous. he's cool and cute at the same time!

He's so innocent and cute but yet so lethal in battle. He respects Kondo and his sister so much yet always tries to beat Hijikata and Kagura.
It's nice to see a boy who fights back if a girl hits him

Katsura Kotaro

Zura is the da kinda guy who everyone wants to watch more but he gets less air time but never fails to entertain

After all, the most memorable quote from the series will always be his: "Zura ja nai, Katsura da!"

I love dumb but strong people

Ultimate Hero and Rival


The best character of the series. Definitely one of the best female anime characters of all time.

She is really funny cute and strong

So funny, and mocks girly stereotypes.

The funniest character in my opinion, plus she is cute


I love Kamui, he's so underrated!

Shimura Shinpachi

One of the most underrated characters both in universe and outside. I don't know why I end up rooting for people like him. He's basically a krillin. Weak, but does everything that he possibly can to help.

Kondo Isao

A very underestimated character he was always funny but could also be epic, one of the best leaders out there and one of the best Gintama characters a bit like Erwin in funny

Gorilla is third to Gintoki and Hijikata for me!

This Gorilla is number one
Hopefully him and gen have a rematch


My favorite character in anime

Definitive best girl.

She is queen, gorgeous and badass..
I luve her chara

Tsukii Rules

Takasugi Shinsuke

This dude is voiced by DIO BRANDO, enough said

I love him so much

The Contenders

Hasegawa Taizou

Lovable character that you always feel bad for.

cool character

Yagyu Kyubei

Tied favourite for me, but my other favorites are doing so well I gave her the vote. One of the more badass characters in my opinion and always brings about hilarious scenes. Interactions with Tojo are 10/10.

Love Kyuubei- she's so badass



Well, I think he is the most reliable and adorable of the Yorozuya family.


Probably the most loyal and useful pet around.

Funniest character

Imai Nobume

She is so beautiful!

Sakamoto Tatsuma

By far my favorite character, he definitely deserves more screen time.

Sarutobi Ayame

She's hilarious, and has a lot of potential in terms of character, but instead she's almost always portrayed doing her antics. Wish Sorachi would show her cooler side as well.

Tokugawa Shigeshige

One of the best characters; he was amazing in episode 238

Shimura Tae
Hattori Zenzo
Yoshida Shouyou

The coolest guy in Gintama...a great teacher and a monster in strength and he always keeps that smiling face

Saitou "Z" Shimaru
Okita Mitsuba
