Best Male Anime Characters With a Sword


The Top Ten

1 Trunks (Dragon Ball Z) Trunks (Dragon Ball Z) Trunks (トランクス, Torankusu) is the first Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla .

He's just amazing. He came back from the future to save the world, and he's been through hell and back. Whys he not number 1?

Trunks a badass.

2 Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach) Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach) Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

ICHIGO KUROSAKI BELOW KIRITO ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Why is that Gary Stu so overrated? He completely fails as a character!


3 Kirito (Sword Art Online) Kirito (Sword Art Online) Kazuto Kirigaya is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

So while Kirito may not be the strongest male anime character with a sword, the title of this list says "Best Male Anime Characters With a Sword", not "Strongest Male Anime Characters With a Sword". Being it is that way, Kirito is first more for the reason of him being brave and wanting to protect the ones he loves rather than just strength itself. Although, there are some characters who do rival him at that as well. Eh, oh well, I still love Kirito anyway. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's my favourite in SAO, but still, he's worse than most of the ones below him. - Goku02

He looks like he has a really tiny "sword".

Not just one. he has two!

The Contenders

11 Sai (Naruto Shippuden)
12 King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)

The best swordsman in the world of anime. He can take any character in this list in a simple sword fight and kick their asses. No one is beyter than him in sworfsmanship. Other characters use stupid superpowers rather than their sword skills to fight but King Bradley only relies on his skills. He should be no. 1 in this list.

13 Yu Kanda (D.Grayman) Yu Kanda (D.Grayman) Yu Kanda is a character from D.Gray-man, a manga series created by Japanese artist and writer Katsura Hoshino.
14 Shisui (Naruto)

Shisui has never neem depicted wielding a sword. As a matter of fact we do not have a single fight scene of this guy. Why is he on this list.

Better than any shinobi with sword.His speed and sharingan clearly makes him one of the most skilled character with sword.Far better than sai

15 Crona (Soul Eater) Crona (Soul Eater)
16 Sesshomaru (Inuyasha) Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)
17 Zabuza (Naruto)
18 Kisame (Naruto) Kisame (Naruto)

Really people forgot hidden mist ninjas.they were crazy with their swords

19 Mifune (Naruto)
20 Saito Hajime (Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan)
