Best Male Anime Characters With a Sword
The Top Ten
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.
ICHIGO KUROSAKI BELOW KIRITO ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Why is that Gary Stu so overrated? He completely fails as a character!
THE BEST CHARACTER IN THE WORLD! , HAS AN AMAZING STORY, JUST INCREDIBLE, WE NEED THE ANIME BACK!
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".
Ugh I hate Kirito dude, he's so stupid
Not just one sword, THREE SWORDS - Mcgillacuddy
He deserves to be at the 1st place, seriously, people. - TatianaJackson
HOW is he below Kirito?!?!
How tf is Zoro under Kirito?
Discarding the superpowers that each one possesses in their animes and only considering his sword skills, definitively Himura should be in the top because he is the only one that has mastered his ryū
Well, this doesn't matter here... this list isn't about only sword skills :v - Kuro_OneMoreMask
Possesses the Sharingan, rinnegan, and a badass sword, can't believe he wasn't on here sooner
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.
Honestly, I think unless Kirito's reaction time is strong enough to counter Gilgamesh's attacks, I think Gilgamesh might be stronger than him. Gilgamesh can utilize his Noble Phantasm Gate of Babylon to pull out one of his thousand weapons to use or to fire them like bullets at his opponents. In addition, he has the sword Ea, which he can use to unleash Enuma Elish, a powerful move capable of ripping apart space and time, and is especially useful for breaking Reality Marbles in the Fate Universe. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
How was he not on the list from the start?
He was good with his long swprd
Really people forgot hidden mist ninjas.they were crazy with their swords
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
This guy is a beast wiyh sword
In my opinion, Ling should be in the top 5.
