Best Kuroko No Basket Characters

The best KNB characters, including the ones from the manga.

The Top Ten

1 Akashi Seijuro

Often times we like a character just because if their overwhelming goodness brings joy to everyone in and out of the show. I'm sure we all realize Akashi Seijuro is no angel, but his character is complex and that makes him human. Once you learn his story you can't help but to feel even a pang of sympathy for him. As the person below me, Akashi has layers to his personality(ies) and that depth makes him stand out from the other characters.

He is refined as well as smart, and I can't help but to have a great respect for him even if his actions aren't saintly. Then again, few of ours are, either. Akashi does have great leader skills- there's a reason he was (and I still know him to be) the captain of the Generation of Miracles.

(I agree, he and Kuroko really complement each other! Also, his personality reminds me a little of Levi. But not too much, Akashi is unique.)

At first I didn't take a liking to his character, but his intriguing personalities really helped me to get drawn into his character. He has a complex depth written into him and I think that's what makes him appealing to the audience. It's interesting to learn how he has become the person he is from his backstory, and as the person below has said before, you gotta feel bad for him. He has this different vibe from the rest of the Generation of Miracles and I think that's what makes him a popular choice for fans of the Kuroko no Basket series.

I really like Akashi I just love his controlling nature and I love the fact that he is also kind and cares about his teammate.
Is it just me or do you love the way Akashi calls all the Generation of Miracles all by their first name it just makes me say "aw"

He is just like me!

2 Aomine Daiki

I love Aomine. He's so good at playing basketball. I didn't like him at first, but he grows unto you. His middle school self playing basketball back then with the generation of miracles made me like him more. He looks like the person that doesn't really give a damn about everything, but he's a nice guy in the inside and he cares a lot about his friends (especially Kuroko). He just doesn't like showing it haha.

He's entertaining because of 3 things: His attitude, his skills and his magazines.

He is the best! The very first one blossomed! The best one with natural talent! N perfect duo with kuroko!

I agree with this rating

3 Kise Ryouta

The best looking one here is Kise. Also, everyone else in The Generation of Miracles think he's the weakest, but he isn't

Kise is the best in my opinion it has the best area and copy perfect... he is alone the miracle generation in area

He's a hottie, plus he's got potential

He is Strongest
Even midorima said it himself that he is the strongest in the court at the moment
And akashi aimone kagima and every generation of miracle was present in the court

His only drawback is his stamina and that injury

If he was healthy he would definitely take the top spot

4 Kagami Taiga

He is my favorite character because his personality symbolizes that little space inside of us that's super determined. I also love his personality and how cute he looks when eating a Maji Burger. I also like how humbled he is once he gets beaten, but also how after that, he remains determined and confident and works harder.

Honestly, I have no words for this character. I love him. Best character, in my opinion.

Guys know what meteor jam is?

Very good play in the show and he's cool as heck - Yatofan

5 Midorima Shintarou

His ability might be mostly limited to shooting, but he's highly intelligent. Midorima can strategize and he understands his ability, plus how to manipulate it. Kagami might be able to block his 3 pointers, however Midorima is able to find other ways to get past him. In real life, his ability to shoot and accuracy is so amazing, that it goes to the point of unrealistic.

Midorima is the 2nd weakest generation of miracles, above Kuroko. He doesn't deserve 2nd place since he has considerably lower ball handling ability than the majority of the Generation of Miracles

Smartest Character in the Show.

suck me

6 Teppei Kiyoshi

'Cause look at his eyebrows!

It was difficult to choose between him and Kuroko, but in the end I picked Kiyoshi.
He is the proof that it is not necessary to be a member of the GoM to be a great character. I love him for his originality, because he really makes me laugh, because he loves basket and not even an injury could stop him or made him depressed, instead he was always positive and cared for his mates more than himself.
Look at the match with the Kirisaki and you can't help to feel affection towards him and to admirate his strenght and his will to protect his comrades at the cost of hurting his body.
He is like a big brother to everyone in Seirin.

7 Kuroko Tetsuya

I like his personality the most and he is very unpredictable. His present sometimes not realized but give significant effect and change the flow. I like how much he keep his promises with his previous friends.

He's the main character everyone even people who hate main characters such as Naruto would love.

He is the best because of his misdirection

His name is Literally in the title

8 Murasakibara Atsushi

Such a big sweetheart, I love him because he wears my favourite colour, he eats all day, he is tall like me, he is an idiot but in a cute way, he is a little negative like me but most of all he has a huge heart because he carried (taigas friends name, I always forget it) wishes and played with the best of his ability even if he did not win he still tried and that's what I like in a character.

When he lost in a game vs Kuroko, in the ending scene, where he enters zone, gives almost his max (bcs, in reality, it wasn't more than 80% or he would hurt someone) and cries later and puts a towel on his head to cover his emotions... it was most epic scene ever. Truly, scene worth of the best player.

Mura-chan is my favorite character in the entire series!
