The Top Ten
1 Kaneki Ken

The best thing about Kaneki Ken (to me) would be his personality. This is only my opinion because I can relate to his life (not the Ghoul part). Not only losing your friends and both parents but also losing yourself. This would be my favorite ANIME!

Leaving anime in manga, one of the best protagonist character developments ever. Black-white-white-black-white, personality changes just like clothes.

He is so relatable, badass, hot, just overall an amazing character. It just wouldn't be the same without him! Love his character development!

2 Suzuya Juuzou Suzuya Juuzou is a character in the manga and anime series Tokyo Ghoul, created by Sui Ishida. He is initially introduced as a Special Class Ghoul Investigator under the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG). Suzuya possesses a disturbing love for violence and torture, an attribute stemming from a traumatic... read more

He is the BEST character for me! I don't care about what people say. He is hands down the mascot of this series for me. This twisted series is best depicted through him. Sure, Kaneki might be the main character, but Suzuya gives it a strange form of life.

He has such an awesome squad. His squad and their relationship are the REAL penultimate squad goals collection!

Poor baby. His childhood was so sad. What do people mean when they say Kaneki's was worse? Okay, Kaneki actually knew at least one of his parents. Juuzou was kidnapped and never knew his real parents.

Juuzou had his balls cut off by force to physically live as a girl forever. He was raised to be a serial killer, which is why he's mentally ill. Need I say more?

3 Touka Kirishima Touka Kirishima is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Tokyo Ghoul created by Sui Ishida.

Touka is beautiful, badass, and a very interesting character. Even though she seems a bit short-tempered at times, she's actually a kind and caring person. She's my favorite character in the show.

She is my favorite character (other than Eto). I instantly loved her personality. She's a badass and seems to get really angry sometimes, but she's actually very nice and adorable.

I love this character for her personality, her looks, and even her fight scenes. This is why she's my first and only waifu.

4 Ayato Kirishima

I love him a lot. He's my favorite Tokyo Ghoul character since he first appeared. Ayato is so hot and strong. I love him.

I think Ayato had a ton of character development, and the anime could've highlighted it more. He's definitely the one who caught my attention first. He's really hot.

He's so cool! Ayato's voice actor is very awesome too. I think he should be first.

5 Hinami Fueguchi Hinami Fueguchi is a character from the "Tokyo Ghoul" series. She is a young ghoul who is initially seen with her mother, Ryouko Fueguchi. After her parents are killed, Hinami finds solace and protection with Kaneki and Touka, main characters in the series. She possesses two types of Kagune, a ghoul's... read more

Despite the Ayahina shipping, I found more with Kaneki x Hinami and Hinami x Touka. Let's face it, Touka and Kaneki have been with Hinami throughout the entire series. They're like real siblings to her. Hinami sees Touka as a big sister and Kaneki as a big brother. This makes Hinami very cute and adorable.

Hinami is arguably the best girl and the cutest, most adorable character.

Hinami and Touka have been through a lot together since Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul:re. Touka wanted to save Hinami from the death sentence from the CCG and risked her life to do so.

6 Hideyoshi Nagachika

He reminds me of Sam Gamgee from Lord of the Rings. I love him. I wish I could have a friend like him, but at the same time, I will try to be a friend like him.

The best friend anybody would need or even want! He is so funny, and I just love him! I... I... I have no more words.

He's so loyal! It makes me envy Kaneki for having such a good friend. He went to such lengths to help Kaneki.

7 Kishou Arima Kishou Arima is a major antagonist turned protagonist of the manga/anime, Tokyo Ghoul, and its successor, Tokyo Ghoul:re.

In the first part, I hated him, but in the second part, he really grew on me. I thought he was kind of funny. When he died, I was really sad.

Despite having less screen time in part 1, Tokyo Ghoul:re's deuteragonist Arima always loved Haise/Kaneki like his son. He knew that he would not survive long, so he needed a successor, and Kaneki gave him that. RIP One Eyed King.

Arima Kishou is UNDEFEATED! Like Aomine says, "The only one who can beat me is me," and I hope that he will be revived because I'm still not over his death.

8 Uta Uta (ウタ, Uta) is a ghoul and an old friend of Renji Yomo and Itori. He owns the HySy ArtMask Studio, where he sells masks. He is also a member of the Clowns. He is known as No Face (ノーフェイス, Nō Feisu) to the CCG investigators.

I still love Uta, and he is still one of my personal favorites, but it really disappoints me that he turns out to be a villain and a member of the Clowns. He seemed like such a good and friendly character, and I thought he was. I hate how the best characters are always evil, especially when they seem like a good guy when they first appear.

It kind of ruins it for the fans, even if they do still like them. I still love Uta all the same, but it's still disappointing that he turns out to be a villain.

To me, he is an amazing character and has so many cool things about him, like his tattoos and his piercings. Just the fact that his eyes mostly stay the same (black and red) is so cool.

9 Amon Koutarou

As much as I love Kaneki, Touka, and a few more characters, Amon is pretty cool. He had more screen time in season two, and I thought he had a good personality. His devotion to ridding the world of ghouls and making the world a better place is what makes him awesome. Not to mention, he's also pretty handsome.

He's an amazing character. I loved seeing him devoted to killing ghouls to save other people's lives. He was such a heroic character!

Also, he's really funny and REALLY loves training.

If Ken is the main character in the series, I can argue Amon is the second lead protagonist.

10 Ken Kaneki
The Contenders
11 Koutarou Amon
12 Akira Mado Akira Mado is a character from the manga and anime series "Tokyo Ghoul." She is a Special Class Ghoul Investigator and is known for her analytical skills and dedication to her job. She is the daughter of Kureo Mado, another investigator, and inherits his unique quinque, a weapon used for fighting ghouls... read more

She's level-headed, smart, gorgeous, and strong. I really like her character.

I love her. She's beautiful and badass and obviously deserves more love. She also reminds me a lot of Annie Leonhardt.

Beautiful, hot, sexy, cool, and badass. She's one of the best girls I have seen in the anime world.

13 Eto

One-Eyed Owl (Eto) has one of the best character developments in the series. After learning her past, no one can hate her.

Eto is the best girl. She's OP and has an interesting character.

14 Nimura Furuta

He's literally the best character in the entire series. The anime didn't do him justice, to be honest.

Furuta is weird and doesn't take anything seriously. He's great.

15 Shuu Tsukiyama Shuu Tsukiyama, also known as the "Gourmet," is a ghoul character in Tokyo Ghoul. He hails from a wealthy and influential family, possessing an aristocratic demeanor. Tsukiyama has a fascination with literature and fine arts, but he is also obsessed with consuming high-quality human flesh. Despite his... read more

First introduced as a jerk and at the end becomes everyone's favorite.

16 Noro

-Awesome character. He raises Eto, protecting her from V, and even after he loses most of his mental capacity to them, he still remains by Eto's side. On top of that, he is one of the most powerful ghouls in the series.

Most badass character after Ken Kaneki. He doesn't care when people attack him. He wipes them off in the blink of an eye.

17 Renji Yomo

I really just love his cool and quiet personality.

18 Tooru Mutsuki

Most in-depth character, and even though he goes evil, he is still the best.

19 Itori Itori is a character from the "Tokyo Ghoul" series and is a part of the mysterious group known as the Clowns. She is an information broker and owns a bar where ghouls and humans gather. Itori is known for her playful and mischievous personality. She has a long history with Uta and Renji Yomo, other... read more
20 Rize Kamishiro Rize Kamishiro is a central character in "Tokyo Ghoul," known for her role in Kaneki Ken's transformation into a ghoul. She is initially portrayed as a beautiful and seductive woman but is later revealed to be a voracious and dangerous ghoul. Rize is the source of the organs transplanted into Kaneki,... read more
21 Nishio Nishiki

Nishiki is my favorite character! He is such a complex character, and I love his backstory. Nishiki should get more love and less hate!

Nishio is literally the definition of perfect. When he came back in :re all badass, I was squealing.

He's so cool, and he made me cry at some point. I just love him. He's so caring and sexy!

22 Takizawa Seidou

I feel really sad about what happened to him. I would join Aogiri just to be his friend.

23 Yomo Renji

Mr. Yomo is one of the most well-made and best characters in the anime/manga, even though he seems so forgotten. Seeing his backstory and his past makes you like him even more. Knowing that he is so strong, yet even he has moments where you see his emotions show through his stone-like persona, adds depth to his character.

Mr. Yomo is one of the best characters you can have. He is powerful and a mentor of sorts to Kaneki in the beginning, also proving himself one of the smartest characters in the show from his battle with Tooru. Maybe there is also going to be a reveal where he is a Kaguja as well in the manga after reading through his past and realizing that he cannibalized. Who knows?

24 Kuki Urie
25 Kureo Mado

I don't know why everyone hates him. I love him even though I am in :re chapter 130+.
