Top Ten Hottest and Smartest Anime CharactersYuki
The Top Ten
When someone first sees him, it would be natural to assume that L is a rather strange (understatement of all time) person. However, in many people's opinion, it's the person, not the appearance, that matters. L is quirky, unique, and can (on rare occurences) be a goofball, causing masses of people to fall in love with him. He is also rather childish, which many people (LIKE ME) find extremely cute.
Traits aside, L intellectually undefeated. I have seen many, many cases of very smart anime characters, but not a single one has been able to use their ingeniousness to the extent that L has. He is a manipulative, analytical, and calculating person when deducing, and can calculate percentage of possibility in the blink of an eye. He solved no less than 300 so-called "unsolvable" cases, all without giving his name, showing his face, letting others hear his voice, or even going to the crime scene. Not trusting any information presented easily, L considers even the most outrageous of ...more
He's definitely the smartest character from any anime, and he has the looks to match it. He's quirky and weird, but that doesn't mean he isn't cute. :-)
L's so hot and smart, he's is one of the most original characters I have ever come across. He has his own way of eating, sitting and even talking on the phone. He's also a pretty one-of-a-kind character. A lot of the characters in Death Note, or even animes in general are a bit cliche. Light, Misa, Mello, even Matsuda are similar to a lot of other characters I can think of, But L's pretty unique in a sort of mad, sherlock Holmes kind of way

He deserves to win for his cunning attitude and his backstory. If you ask any naruto lover who truly knows the show who the smartest character is, Itachi will be the answer. He sacrificed his reputation for his brother and he became one of the strongest characters ever. I remember when everyone thought he was evil and wanted him to fight sasuke and lose until he died fighting sasuke and his true colors were revealed.
I think people r voteing hottest and ignoring the smartest part, anyway I think a great number of naruto characters should be here for example shikamaru anyone who watches naruto would know he is the smartest cause its literally in his clans blood. But itachi I a smart badass guy that displays no emotion, I think he deserves the credit for what he has given up. He has sucsesfully pulled of one of the greatest stunts I've ever seen, I mean killing the whole uchiha clan, that's hard core... I hope he maintains this first position and represent the whole naruto cast
Woohoo itachi is gonna win!... He's the best we all love him so much. He gave up his life for his brother and also saved most of the shinobi world by defeating kabuto and his sharingan is really cool!
Nothing to say here. Itachi Uchiha is the smartest and hottest Naruto character created and there's no doubt about itV 58 Comments
She is the smartest anime character ever! She invented Dragon ball radar she's very handy with technology and she's also kinda hot
Bulma is one of my favorite character females she's the smartest in dragon ball z
If this is for having a combination of looks and smarts, Bulma should win. And she definitely needs to be ahead of Goku, who isn't the brightest lightbulb.
Goku is a genius tactician and gifted learner. He's just oblivious since he doesn't go to school. - Rraamm
Bulma shoul be number 1.how is she below sakuraV 15 Comments
Light's definitely the hottest anime character I know, and his plots are ingenious. He has a highly interesting perspective, and motives. It's admirable how he's able to put his emotions aside for the greater good.
Also, yes, I think he's hotter than L. L looks cute at times, like when he smiles, but the rest of the time, he does look rather... unapproachable. Honestly, if I saw someone who looked like a real-life version of L, I would have turned and walked in the opposite direction.
Also, if I were to get trapped into the world of Death Note, I'd much rather be approached by Light than L, even if it's obvious that I know more than I let on. "Kira doesn't kill without good reason." It's one of the points Matsuda emphasises in the manga. Light likely wouldn't kill me as long as I promised to obey him, and if I fed him valuable information from time to time. Especially since he'd rather not sacrifice innocents. Many of you are going to be pointing out Naomi Misora's fate, ...more
An intelligence with the power of social cunning, remember when light just tried to hide death note, he used little thing he had, just pen etc.. I wonder if that was L, he would hide the tight security that complicated its normal for detective, there's no something awful
I can't believe Naruto crappy characters occupy so many positions in top 10 while I know at least 30 anime characters that can top any Naruto characters by far.
Light is the smartest guy in anime and belive me, I've seen TONS of anime.
This guy killed L, Mello and almost Near as well as over 2 million other criminals. His ideas are also just otherwordlyV 35 Comments
Code Geass, in a way, is like a strategic story.. It is action-filled but is also very intelligent. And the character that stands the most intelligent in the series is Lelouch. And take note, he's only a high school student, yet he can balance being a good student, members of a council and being a leader on a WAR! How cool is that?
Lelouch vi Britannia is extremely smart and very hottest. Zero leader The Black Knights sect. Zero is Perfect Person in the Anime All Time. Lelouch Incredible playing chess. It's Emperor of Emperor.
My favorite of his looks are when he has that evil smile. Normally when he tells someone to die by using his super hot geass. He is obviously smart, like when he told himself not think in order to save Nunnally. So smart and so hot.
Hmm...V 31 Comments
Vegeta is an evil genius, no doubt about that but his wife should be above him.
Vegeta the evil saying prince is the ultimate form of coolness he should be like right on top
He is someone who combined high octane physique with supreme intelligence, should be at least at par with Kakashi - azerbaijan
Vegeta is much much more powerful than Kakashi, but isn't as intelligent as him in my opinion. - Goku02
Intelligent tactician. He picks up in things quite fast just by observing.V 13 Comments
He is unbelievable, extremely, incredible level smart and hot. He is a crate a strategic plans. Aizen has got God level strong and intelligent.
Yes Aizen... sexy smartass
Why is he down here? He can knock out Gray with one finger and HE CAN BEAT THE CRAP OF EVERYONE ABOVE HERE except Ichigo :)
No offense to the Gray fans.
Aizen is the storngest captain but the hogyoku made him there
Just amazingly handsome and his body is too good. I wonder if orochimaru had gym in his hideouts.
Sasuke is just beyond perfect! He's clever, strong, powerful, cool, cold, superior, a badass, and not to mention HOT! I used to hate anime but I became obsessed with it thanks to him! Sasuke is awesome because he is an Uchiha, the strongest clan that ever existed!
He was my first love. Until now he still awesome. I love him so much. He's cool, handsome, mysterious, genius, awesome, perfect! He's really my ideal type. Well, someday I hope I can meet someone like him. Uchiha Sasuke, I love you!

Erza is awesome you people are not even giving her the credit she deserves, she is by far one of the most powerful characters in fairy tail. She can beat every character in the guild call fairy tail except for gildarts, the master and I wanna say luxus but I think it'll be a tie.
Erza! She's so hot! Her hair is perfect all the time and she kicks ass! She had over 100 different armor suits and swords! Her past is really sad though. But she is amazing!
I'm sorry but hottest is erza... Smartest? I don't know but I don't think it's sakura hem
Shes the hottest and was quite observant and clever in battle... Shoyld not go any lower than thisV 44 Comments
Ed has survived a lot considering his age (any age). How many people had come as close as Ed to bringing someone back from the dead. Two. His teacher, and his brother. He and his brother were 10 and 8. Edward is a genius when it comes to chemistry, alchemy, and strategy. He's seen behind the doorway thing, what he traded his leg for, and in the long run, that has helped him plenty. I was super disappointed he doesn't have Alchemy anymore because he has the potential to become the greatest alchemist there has ever lived. He still can, we the help of his brother. And Edward is hot as hell.
Too hot for words. Plus the fact that he's an alchemist pretty much means he has to be a genius, and he even went thru the Gate, so he knows what almost no one else knows
He starts out pretty baby faced, but DAMN! *Snaps fingers 3 times* Is he buff and a badass! He is also super smart in science! In Brotherhood he gets more manlier and in the original anime he doesn't really mature that's noticeable, but he still looks god damn hot without a shirt! - Aurothon
A charming, determined, intelligent boy.V 10 Comments
Very very smart and cute
90 really he's the smartest must be 2nd after L
He outsmarted Light, and surpassed L.
Second to L. My top five would be:
She so great she the sexy and hot genius to every one loves her she don't have fancy weapons but she has her guts like her master so she is number always so please give her number 1
Sakura sucks. Shikamaru should be above her
A such cherry bloom that I love perfect fit with sasuke such beauty
Sakura is the most annoying person alive. She is so annoying that she doesn't even need to be alive to be on that list!V 29 Comments
Shikamaru is one of the characters I like in naruto because he always outsmart his opponent, if I were to ask this will be my top 10:
2. kakashi hatake- same as shikamaru he is so brilliant when in time of fighting. always analysing first the ability of his opponent.
6. chiyo- the grandmom of sasori, she was so good and brilliant in her puppetry
7. neji- it was always been said that he is a genius
9. sakura- according to sasori, he was amazed that sakura easily made an antidote for his poison that he made even he can not make
10. gaara - he is so fine and excellent in using the nature as he fight his opponent ex. he uses the minerals from underground in fighting kimimaru and he uses the gold sand of his own father to defeat the revived mizukage
Shikamaru is a genius... No homo he kinda has a sexy vibe on him. He is a brilliant strategist. He puts in perspective his weakness and uses it against his enemies... Just look at how he defeated hidan
Maybe this is just me, but besides being an obvious genius, I find his laid-back, down-to-earth personality and subtle-yet-profound love of his friends and villagers to be so very attractive. Face it, he's as "cool" as Sasuke without the Uchicha thirst for vengeance. Temari would be a super lucky girl...
Shikamaru is smarter than kakashi and itachi although these 2 are smartV 13 Comments
All bleach fans know this great and awesome character
and its so strong, smart and mysterious
Most cunning guy with so much of mystic aroma around him and influences the story most
He is awesome and always remains calm and ahead of everyone. He and Itachi are the smartest characters of all
Aizen : I'll kill you kisuke!
Kisuke: *blasts the ever living hell out Aizen*
Kisuke: Surprise mawfacka. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Perfection. That's all I have to say
This hilarious hottie should be at the top, he's smart ( yea even smarter than Naruto ^_^)
Usui has blonde hair and sharp green eyes.
He has a cool personality he's great at EVERYTHING and only has eyes for misaki, who should also be on this list. :P
Why is he not number 1! He's unsuitable taking for Pete's sake! He's hot, drop dead gorgeous, and he can do everything! He is smart too! I bet that he can get into any school that he wanted too!
So smart and I love him
The way he admits everything in the last few episodes is just so...*faints blushing*
Love hime... Is there anymore left to be said?
I bet the only reason he has a mask on is so the ladies won't die of nose bleeds. He is so beautiful and that scar just makes things even better. He is the most epic ninja in the show in my opinion... KAKASHI WHY ARE YOU SO BEAUTIFUL?!
He's a funny quirky ish genius who can kick ass
What is there to say other than hot hot hot and more hotness! Kakashi is obviously the hottest anime guy to be ever created. Also, not to mentio he is a genius. - TeresaIsRandomV 12 Comments
He is so hot and he has a STRIPPING PROBLEM
Gray is so smart. He had an awesome power. He's also hot and handsome and the way I like him because he had a better intelligence that can't do others. He can also defeat some girls by his seduction. In fairy tail, he is named " smart model" because of what he can do and not just that, he's not bad boy because his hot, he is also very kind. He's awesome!
I've had many anime crushes, sasuke uchiha being my first at the tender age of 5 but gray had been the only one to stick with me. Every time I see him I think of how hot and sexy he is. To be honest I like him more then natsu and I'm sad he's only at number 10
Yep. He wins. - RebeccaDarkingV 10 Comments
How did WENDY get higher then him.
He is always 1step ahead of everyone he knows what to do and always get's away from the police
Kakashi is really smart and cool! Plus, I really love his outfit. Kaitou is a "bad boy" DC
He's way smarter than Conan, not even Conan can see through his plans and his tricks.
the bestV 7 Comments
YES! This dud esould be number one. He stopped a war wit a few words, he gave up his arm to save his friend, he is hot and an all round amazing guy. Plus he's the captain of his own ship and is really smart.
Smartest in the OP world. Lot smarter than other guys on top of the list. Wise words, full of wisdom and great captain and friend.
YAY! I was waiting for him!
I looove ShanksV 2 Comments
Well, he once purposely got himself injured just to test the opponents strategy, and he is a master plotter to equal Itachi Uchiha, and he can often spot tiny flaws in the opponents fighting style. I rest my case.
I believe he is the smartest and hottest among all
He can easily find his opponents weakness and the smartest and probably the hottest looking anime character
Hottest smartest guy ever!
He just needs to take one look at your moves, analyse them for few seconds and... RIP. you go straight yo hell..*. *
And hotness is his middle name.. Sexy handsome cunning and brilliant
BYAKUYA LOVE YOU!
How can no one love him? His white hair and purple eyes just make him so adorable. I was so sad when yuno kill ed him.
I never understood why everyone is all over Yuki when Akise is super sexy, smart, nice, all around amazing, and he's RIGHT THERE. Why choose Yuki (who pisses me off to no end) over almost literal perfection?
Akise is very hot and is also very smart. He is the first one to find out that Yuno is actually a goddess.
YUNO GIVE YUKKI TO HIM YA LITTLE PIECE OF SHI- I mean.. DON’T KILL MEHV 6 Comments
He is so smart and strong and fast and handsome
Great Ninja and Nice Father!
He is the best
Firstly ; he is the hottest character I have ever seen..i like the way he laughs <3..i like the way he talks to koshina the first time they met..his deep love to his son,his sacrifice,hiss intelligence in all battles, for all these things..he deserved to be the top of all anime lists...we cannot forget minato and koshina love story which is full of emotions and suffering,too...no words can describe my deep love for him..you will be always in my heartV 4 Comments
Sanji is one of the most smartest characters I have ever witnessed. He is obviously pervert but in the serious situation he always showed his intelligence. So I like this character more than any...
Very few male characters in One Piece have strenght, compassion, smarts and good looks. Sanji is one of them.
-Mr Prince saved the crew in Alabasta with an elaborated plan
-Pretended to be an agent to get Crocodile off their back
-Sabotaged Enel's ship
-Predicted where Robin would be taken and got on the train, saving Usopp and Franky
-Planned their escape by opening the Gate of justice
-Made Nami, Brook and Chopper escape Capone's body
-Saved Chiffon at light speed while keeping his identity secret
What more is there to say? SANJI IS A BOSS
This list is about BOTH looks and intelligence, a lot of people above him lacks one of them.
Sanji's intelligence saved the crew countless times, but most of the people ignore it just because he acts perverted. Sanji deserves better - smill
Fast to think along with very faithful to his friends.
He is so beautiful I love him he is so good he can do anything he makes me feel happy I love you kurapika my beautiful son
Kurapika is smart and beautiful
Such an awesome guyV 1 Comment
How is Jellal below Lucy he's much smarter than Lucy though Lucy's pretty smart too. But Jellal is a child prodigy and the most diverse character in the entire show. Plus he's very handsome, even more so than Gray in my opinion. - Goku02
Come on 24?! Jellybean should at least be no 9! And that doesn't do him half justice!
Much smarter than Gray, Lucy and Erza. - nonameforme
. Smart and hot. Go jerza
We're talking about the hottest and at the same time smartest, right? Then that's what we have Nami for! She's hot, incredibly bold, and come on, she doesn't just go by the books! Knowing which direction and what will happen to the weather just by senses and no special equipment, damn, she's the best damn navigator you'll ever meet! Her powers also function from her brains.
I dislike her. I think she is extremely annoying and overrated.
Funny smart and a bit bossy but is loved by everyone fans thought she was good looking before the time skip but in the new world everyone got a little more perverted laugh out loud
She is so hot, smart and useful.V 8 Comments
She is extraordinarily smart but I can't imagine a kid being hot. - Goku02
Shiro is a girl, that at a young age she was put in a place for intelligent people
The strongest vampire in the whole show, he is sexy and intelligent and practically unbeatable. I love this guy. And he's the main protagonist. He kills the other vampires and vice versa. He's a badass!
I honestly don't see Robin as pretty. In fact, I would even say she is ugly especially post-timeskip... And for someone who's supposed to be smart, she rarely uses her brain in battle or to get the Strawhats out of a pinch. She just reads, that's it. Nami has proved herself to be more useful than Robin when it is time to come up with a solution. Sanji too for that matter. Hell even Usopp is more useful! Robin is just in the background not doing anything most of the time.
Hotter than Nami
Sexier than Nami
Smart, beautiful and an awesome devil fruit!
Beauty with brains and an awesome devil fruit powerV 6 Comments
He is a master strategist, rising to the rank of colonel at younger than age 30, and even invented a whole other personality to fool everyone into underestimating him. And who can deny his hotness? Come on, the hair, the eyes... And he's ripped.
He is just one of the most awesome characters ever. He is not only hilarious but also a great leader that looks after his team. Plus he just adds a lot to Fullmetal, as he has probably a couple of the most impressive scenes. Not to mention he is insanely hot.
Mustang made me bawl and laugh at the same time definitely in episode 25 (2003/2004 version) which I really don't want to talk about :, ( "it's going to rain today... " OH MY GOD... GOLD! He's hot, he's smart and is a fantastic leader and definitely deserved to be at the top and be without an eyepatch. :, (
You realize that in order to use alchemy you basically have to have a PhD. In chemistry. But Roy also manages to be a master strategist and ruler of an entire country.V 3 Comments
She has the full package! Sexy and smart!
That's the entire student body of the manga/anime talking.
I love the Inner Moka Akashiya! She's so gorgeous and cool ^_^
HE IS SO HOT LIKE HE HAS A BIG...
I LOVE HIM SO MUCH SO EMO AND BLACK HAIR SPIKEY!
Ino is so hot :) and when she took over sakura's body to cheat off her test? Genius! Admit it, you would too.
I really hate Ino! She is a stupid ass... Even Sakura is better then her!
She's way better than that pink haired bitch, Sakura...That pinkette is not more than a mewling quim that always cry about Sasuke...can't she just move on like Ino did.And don't forget when she beat the hell out of Sai just because he said Ino is gorgeous, which is tottaly true...
Mirajane is just so beautiful in every way and has a kind heart.
Mira-san is technically Er-chan but obsesses with ships!
Mira-san deserves to be higher! - Fandom_Lover
She loves books and she is damn hot
If there weren't so many dumb preteen/teen anime fangirls, Erza would probably number one based on her position on this list with Lucy not far behind.
She is the cuteset and shes ten WHAT! What the heck she is so cute again how is she not NUMBER ONE!
She is dumb. On galuna island she dig a pit calling Virgo. Remember you guysV 7 Comments
Incredibly smart and awesome
So HOT! AND SEXY!
A lot better than his stupid demon Butler
I think that Ciel deserves more than 52 I mean he should be in at least top 20 AT LEAST altough everybody has a different opinion on thingsV 1 Comment
You don't get more brutally badass or cold and yet subtlely emotional than hei, the perfect contrast
Hei is just awesome character also really smart and strong
Chinese electric Batman! That is all
Seriously, 89? There should be a limit of underrating someone, this guy is brilliant and very smart, all this zero and kira (they are smart) they are kinda overrated. Monster is the most awesome psychological anime and johan is the most badass villan ever and I have a lot of reasons why he can outsmart anyone in this list.
Johan Liebert is so underrated.
Monster isn't my favorite anime by any means, but I admit that Johan Liebert is, by definition, ingenious.
A child prodigy yet monstrously dangerous, very intelligent, seducing, and charismatic... watch "Monster" best seinen anime so I will not seeing this character underrated
Honestly I don't understand why Ichigo is way down here but he is real hot though I think he's more cute then hot, I'd take either! Yes he can sometimes be kinda stupid and doesn't usually have a game plan for fights but when he does they work out most of the time. I just simply adore seeing Ichigo! :3 I also think he's 1000x better then Naruto in any way shape or form, sorry Naruto ( no actually I'm not sorry in the slightest I hate you and everyone from your show including your show in general ) at least Ichigo isn't SO ANNOYING like you!
No offense to Naruto I love him but ichigo is definitely smarter than him!
Why the hell is Ichigo away down here? - lostsand
He is suppossed to be in top 10V 1 Comment
Well, I will admit, his strategy in battle is quite explosive, and I think he is the hottest character in the Naruto series.
He's awesome he should be number 2 and he's a blast
He's too cute. I always feel disappointed by the fact that he's not real
100% on this one, Sebastian is a demon that I wouldn't have a second thought on making a contract with that hot and sharp minded devil even if he would have to eat my soul in the end I would still have him eat my soul then anybody else! Sebastian Michaelis, I officially respect you and believe you are the smartest and hottest anime character!
He's sexy and hot
He's a demon! He won in a fight against a fallen angel, Claude and other people and he teaches Ciel! Not to mention he's really hot and sexy too!
44?! I really excepted him to be Top 1.V 9 Comments
He's just so cute! I have to battle it out with Ran because he's got that girl waiting. He's smart, funny, loveable and also he deserves more love.
It was between him and L but shinichi needs more coverage.
I really like him a lot he is handsome, strong and don't be surprise but he is the smartest human ever as if you guys don't know... anyway yes he is one of the best
Shinichi is my model. I wanna be detective too someday.
Shinichi is The best.
How can he not be in Top 10? He already solves millions of mystery in Detective Conan seriesV 5 Comments
Kyoya is very smart and very sexy.
Kyoya Ootori is the Shadow King for a reason. He's probably already running the world.
There's only one time when I didn't like Kyouya, and that's when yeah, episode 8, but anyways Kyouya is pretty cool.
HE IS SO HOT AND SMART AT THE SAME TIME! ^3^V 5 Comments
He is so adorable and cute yet he is smart at the same time, he is the most awesome character you can ask for and he also loves candy!
50! you have to be kidding me. My baby :,(
Smartest character ever. Aewsome personality and attitude. A bored look on his face and most genius brain ever.
She is so beautiful! A bright student, a good athlete and a sweetheart
Shes so smart that even though she doesn't review for a test in a prestigous school she gets a perfect score in her exam
He's just too cool!
67th! Am I hearing that right?! Unfortunately yes,Sesshomaro is so handsome,and even if he tried to kill Inuyasha he adopted a little girl! Even though he doesn't show it, he has feelings for his brother. He's smart to without a doubt the way he fights Inuyasha is clever and he really knows good strategys none the less. Who says his Tensaiga useless! Rin and Jalkin wouldn't be alive if it weren't for his Tensaiga! Honestly,If I add these facts all up,the answer would be Sesshomaro is awesome on so many levels!
I absolutely love this guy to death. HE IS AMAZING!
Kurama is the inspiration of the Nine-Tails Demon Fox in the Naruto series and Kurapika of hunter x hunter. He is hot and a certified geek who could be serioius, funny and loving. Best anime character of all time!
Even as a baby he's sexy. - cam1922

She is the most awesome dbz character ever. She is hands down the most beautiful, strongest, smartest, anime girl ever. She puts all the others to shame.

Best girl you will ever meet. She could defeat erza. She is most genius and confident woman ever. She is even the prettiest in dbz. She is hot. She kicked Vegeta's ass. She is damn strong. She is a good mother
