Top Ten Haikyuu!! Characters

The Top Ten Haikyuu!! Characters

1 Kageyama Tobio

Kageyama Tobio is a character you can relate to and is someone who has flaws and strengths like us. He is passionate about volleyball, also being a very talented young boy with natural abilities. All though he has vibrant blue eyes and jet black hair, his personality is quite different then you would imagine. As an example in him being betrayed by his teammates for being a 'king' he is just overall passionate about volleyball hand has a goal to win. When he met Hinata Shouyou, that all changed. When Hinata told Kageyama that he is not alone, or along the lines of that, his eyes opened. He is on a team that is there for him, who will support him, and who will be his support pillars. Kageyama's character development is also beyond extraordinary, as he keeps on learning and getting better. But at the end of the day, Kageyama is still our sweet blueberry boy who loves milk.

Typical tsundere. Kinda impatient and scary. But the more you know him, more you know his playful side and realized that he is indeed one of the best if not the top player in Haikyuu!

His aggression is totally justifiable. People in his JH Team abandoned him for being a perfectionist and therefore I don't think it is fair for them to do so.

I love him because at the beginning it seems like he is going to just be the classic brooding character that is of course a natural genius that is completion for the main character but instead he becomes what is helping to hold up Hinata. Not only that but he has breakthrough points where you actually see him struggle to make something work.

2 Nishinoya Yuu

defence pillar and cute wild boi and also not afraid to give people who insult him or his friends a piece of his mind

Wild energetic boi! Extremely talented! Always very energetic and always there to cheer his teammates on. Although he is a second year, his level of maturity is almost less than Hinata... But is adorable and made in in my husbando list.

this boi protects the manager and he's so good at receiving and so cute

I just love him, from the first time he appeared in the series I couldn’t get my eyes off him

3 Oikawa Touru

Oikawa Tooru is my favorite in 'Haikyuu!' for a reason. Though he may have perfect brown hair, shining brown eyes, and that picture-perfect smile, don't get fooled by his looks. That smile is non-genuine. He seems to be the perfect boy everyone chases for, but he has flaws. He was not born with this talent. He was just so passionate about volleyball, he worked to achieve his goal, aiming for the top. He got 'The Best Setter' in the Prefecture award from his hard work. He also overworked himself in that brace on his right knee. He acts cocky, high and mighty for a reason, to hide the scars in him. He laughs off those nasty remarks of him, for all we know, he must be crumbling inside! But he also has his strengths. He knows how to lift his team, pull out all the effort of his team and accept defeat. He lost to his enemy, Ushijima Wakatoshi, and his Kohai, Kageyama Tobio. And don't forget his fangirls. His fangirls admire 'the Oikawa Tooru' they built, 'who's cute, who has good looks, ...more

when he sticks out his tongue that smilee and his calm cuteness

Oikawa Tooru is in my opinion by far the best-written character on this show.
On the first eye he looks like an annoying, arrogant antagonist. But his flashback is actually really important. Oikawa worked very very hard only to easily get surpassed by a new student. And he does everything to get by to the point of overtraining. But he fakes to be okay with his stupid remarks and non-genuine smiles. The only one who understands him is his best friend. Plus he's really cute. I mean, he teaches volleyball to little kids? I honestly love him so much. I relate to his idea of never being good enough and I'll always root for his team.

Oikawa & his team Aoba Johsai is one of the Best Opponent that Karasuno have ever faced. I don't know about others but I really liked this guy character, Cause at first, you'll feel like he's just arrogant, cocky player with natural skills. But he ain't anything like that, and the way that he hides it. I really liked that. And Aoba Johsai really deserves to goes to Nationals.

4 Tsukishima Kei

Stubborn, never listens to anyone. Doesn't seriously play volleyball because of his past. But later proves that he's is just as worthy as any other player and a key player in Haikyuu.

Season 1 was about Shoyo and Kags, Season 2 was about Yams, but season THREE was no doubt about him. The best for last and a strong finish!

S a l t y s h I m a. Honestly Tsukki is adorable and when paired up with Yama, MY HEART

My friends say i´m he and I really look like he so I must love him

5 Hinata Shouyou

Hinata Shouyou is a very bright and upbeat boy who loves volleyball and is aspiring to be like his idol, the Little Giant. He is the main protagonist of 'Haikyuu!' and is a bright ball of sunshine. Hinata Shouyou has a lot of character development in the story as he learns teamwork and volleyball. He is a good role model, all though he's small and people underestimate him, he can fly high!

He is underestimated by other people but that’s what gives him the element of surprise. He brings everyone to their feet while playing volleyball.

Soft baby, and a super awesome character as well! all he wants is to be like his idol. is there anything more awesome than that?

Best character development in the show other than tsukki...But oikawa is the best,cause he can bring 100% from his team

6 Sugawara Koushi

The amazing fluffy mom who sets every one back on task. How can one not love him?

Whoever doesn't like team mom as a character is missing out. He's sweet, gets angry in his team mom way, and all he wants is to help his club "family".

he is my fave boi
he is so kind and inspirational but he isn't afraid to wack sense into his teammates, literally wack them

Literally the sweetest bby I cry whenever he speaks this man ruined my life and I thank him 4 it

7 Yamaguchi Tadashi

Yama is really underrated inside the team, and its not just his serves that are good. His spikes are good too, as shown in the first season.

He worked so hard to try to get his jump float right. He is adorably timid but works very hard, even when he just sits in the sidelines. He also cares a lot about his best friend (Tsukishima Kei) and I couldn't stop smiling when I saw him getting those five points with his jump floats. (Wow. I suddenly want to learn the jump float) His personality is very interesting because he is at first, pretty shy, but gets social once you get to know him. He was bullied and picked on when he was younger, which pretty much explains his nervousness and lack of self-esteem. (Yamaguchi Defense Squad! Join us, it's gucci )

Love his whole side-plot story in the show, his character is just so relatable. I really hope we see him improve throughout the series and finally be able to really get some playing time.

Tadashi was a truly interesting and beautiful character. At first, he was a guy who we hardly saw playing in matches, and when he was called for a pinch serve for the first time, he was basically a nervous wreck. Even though he screws up a lot with his serves, it just adds to our happiness when we finally see his efforts give the team glorious results in the match against Aoba Jousai in the second season. His past explains why he doubts himself and why he thinks Tsukishima is so cool. I loved the scene when he picks up the courage to tell his best friend and the person he admires the most that he's uncool lately and wants him to improve. I can't even explain how nervous he would have been about doing that. - ArtyLily

8 Tanaka Ryuunosuke

Tanaka is by far the most entertaining one.. There is no way you can miss that shirt spin lmfao

Looks scary; is an actual sweetheart.

How in the hell is Ryu so low? He's the best character from the anime

He was instantly my favorite character, get my boy to the top five

9 Sawamura Daichi

The captain of the Karasuno team. He's mild tempered most of the time, but when he gets really annoyed, he's even more scarier than Tanaka. Also the best receiver of the team after the libero. - Kiteretsunu

great inspirational coach

Best captain!


10 Bokuto Koutarou

Funniest kid in Haikyuu. I love the way he looks! A human owl! An amazing player but a even goofier friend. Love him!

I love his heyheyhey and his hair and his personality and when he went emo

He's like that one annoying person that you'll miss when you graduate or something. When he's sad you can't help being sad too because of the awesomeness.

He was the one character that I sincerely missed, he's super quirky and dorky, and never fails to make me laugh

The Newcomers

? Kiyoomi Sakusa
? Kōrai Hoshiumi

he’s baby no matter what anyone says and he really is an amazing player

The Contenders

11 Kuroo Tetsurou

One of the reason, why I watched Haikyuu. This guy looked like Badass, Cool Character. And he doesn't disappointed me at all. This guy is simply superb.

Oh My God! He is the BEST. He is a great asset to Nekoma and wow, his slightly e
crooked smile is just so hot. I love his cute bedhead and mature yet goofy personaily!

The fandom of Haikyuu may represent Kuroo as a literal sex god, but in reality this nekoma captain is a absolute dork. He's also very determined and a great captain, and it is obvious on how much he cares for Kenma. He can be serious when he needs to be, and I love the friendship between him and Bokuto. Overall, he's my favorite! His design is unique as well, and I love how his hair looks like he had just rolled out of bed, most likely because he sleeps with two pillows over his head. The captain of Nekoma cannot be beat!

He's already an amazing character but dat laugh though.

12 Azumane Asahi

So shy for a bulky guy like him, it's adorable. And his scary face in that one scene got me cracking up.

He looks scary, but is actually a big softy. He takes his role as ace very seriously. His strength is awe inspiring. He is such a sensitive soul and such a good sport. and I love that he changes his mind about going to college and ends up attending fashion school which is surprising and oddly perfect. I’m so glad that he has kept in touch with everyone and is still the sensitive cutie that everyone counts on.

Asahi is a relatable, adorable character. Despite his appearance, he has a timid and delicate personality and tends to feel a very strong sense of responsibility. We see this when he temporarily stops going to the volleyball club after his attacks were blocked by the "Iron Wall" of Datekou. I know how he must have felt when he lost the match, all of his efforts not being able to give him good results. He blamed himself and quit the club for a while, but came back and became even stronger, fulfilling his role as Karasuno's ace. - ArtyLily

I laugh every time when people think Asahi is this scary/evil/old guy, but he's actually super-sweet, just a little bit a coward, I love him.

13 Kozume Kenma

This guy is superb. And his dumps during the match was also awesome.

I'm a hardcore gamer like him, so I can relate to how awkward it is to talk to anybody.

Literally anyone who has read the manga knows that college Kenma is like best boi. This legend is a pro gamer, successful youtuber, and a board member of a big company and still has time to be the stupidly lovable introvert that me and all my friends fell in love with in seventh grade. Like bruh. - Trash-been

Videogame boi. The most emo and the most smartest and stragetic boi in Nekoma! He is so adorable in real life with his quiet personality but turns out he is also an awesome friend!

14 Hajime Iwaizumi

It takes a lot to tolerate Oikawa everyday and earn his trust. He is harsh and angry, which is so relatable. He balances oikawa and is a key player for seijoh. I wonder where he ended up after high school. I think he is great!

I like how almost every scene he appears in, it's always about going on a rage.

Well he's really cute just saying lol

My bae deserves all the love.

15 Tendou Satori

He is himself and does not dislike anyone else. I want a boy like Tendou as a partner, whether others think he's crazy or creepy. I love this crazy side to him.

I might think he's not that attractive (looks wise), BUT I do admit he is quite the unique athlete.

The true face of satan - FearMe

Tendou is adorable. Have you seen his expressions? He's hilarious, interesting, actually a really nice guy, and his backstory just makes you wanna give him a big hug.

16 Ushijima

Don't let his bulky body and serious face fool you! He is also a honey-bean! I love how he's scared of sea cucumbers, which is relatable. He is such an outstanding player, as one of the few left handed spiker.

A lefty menace, spiker, chosen to represent Japan.

He is good


17 Kiyoko Shimizu

Without a doubt, this girl is my favourite anime crush

Tanaka and Noya would be mad if they saw this oml.

Kiyoko? Last? THIS IS...Understandable. She isn't anything quite special in my opinion. Her role is only to be the "Hot Lady Manager".
I don't see flaws in her so she fits as a mary sue in my opinion. - Hanah_Ant

18 Lev Haiba


He doesn't get enough love and his whole team doesn't like him :'(


I love his positive energy and his dream to become the ace of Nekoma, although he still has a lot to train he believes firmly in himself ❤️

This guy has got a fine character, kinda lot like mine.

Toll bean. Do I need to say more?

19 Akaashi Keiji

I think he needs more love and NEEDS TO BE KNOWN MORE! And you can't say no to that pretty face - IWishSoHardSometimes

He is a very professional setter that uses perfect logic. He uses very respectful words toward people who are higher in grades than him. Considered to be one of the youngest in the team, he is the main player of his team and is able to pull up Bokuto when he is in a bad mood and even the entire team.

Literally, this boy is beautiful. Besides, I admire him a lot for being able to put up with Bokuto and his emotional waves. To add onto that, he's pretty smart and he's humble. He just needs love.

He's just perfect and amazing

20 Keishin Ukai

Karasuno's coach who is the grandson of the famous "karasuno's ukai"


21 Morisuke Yaku

baby no cap

I love his personality
he's cute and bby

Baby and u can’t change my mind

22 Yuuji Terushima

He has a nice face and attitude

I love his energi and his Power to make me and everybody else smile


He’s piercings. Do I need to say more?

23 Chikara Ennoshita

Criminally under rated character who deserves to be captain after Daichi.

The most underrated character of this series. He understands his friends and is very relatable. - AmythestDiamond

Underrated character. I said it.

Underrated older brother of Karasuno 😳😳

24 Yachi Hitoka

One of the most underrated characters of the show. to be honest I judged her at first but she's one of the most relatable characters on the show. The fact that she had this anxiety thing around people ((mainly boys)) made me like her even more. She was degraded by her mom which made her feel negative about everything. I really like her.

25 Kentaro Kyotani (Mad Dog)

He kinds of reminds me of blueberry head and gives off that kind of vibe, but the only difference is he warmed up to his acquaintances within one game.

this bad boi makes me love him by existing

Best spiker ever

26 Tsutomu Goshiki

I swear whenever he cries I die
Protect this baby

He’s just so cute ☺️

27 Terushima Yuuji

Party animal! Hot boi! Bullet! Extremely energetic! Always looking to have fun. Hold on isn't than me in another dimension. Hehe... He is awesome and no doubts he is an amazing volleyball player.

how is he so far back he's adorable and hot his piercingss I love him

28 Taketora Yamamoto

He is 2nd best boi after tanaka <3

29 Shirabu Kenjirõ

A true hardworker. Is totally relatable, also I love his design.

30 Takanobu Aone
31 Naoyasu Kuguri

32 Suguru Daishou

I didn’t like him in the beginning but I love him now. He’s a snake boi.
