Top Ten Best Noragami Characters

The top ten characters from the 2014 anime "Noragami".

The Top Ten

1 Yato Yato

Yato; the god of extreme stalking, the god of calamity, the god of granting people's wishes for only 5 yen, the god who isn't really a god. Who doesn't love Yato? I feel kinda bad for him because nobody really knows him as a god, but a creepy, sweaty-handed guy that tries to grant people's wishes. Either way, he is very light-hearted, somewhat thick, and serious at times but most of all, loyal to his friends... Sometimes. He definitely deserves the first place.

He's kind, nice and is absolutely hilarious with his childish manner. I feel bad for him, since he's a God of Calamity it's his destiny to be forgotten and neglected some day, like Rabo. He stopped killing people and tried his best to redeem for his past actions by becoming the Delivery God, and became the Yato we know and love today. He's also loyal to his friend, and is really caring ( though he doesn't openly show it very often ), enduring pain and risking his life in order to save Yukine despite everything Yukine has done to him,..etc... Overall he's the greatest character, and definitely worthy of the top spot. - Goku02

He is cute, kind, funny and even if he doesn't look like it at first sight, he is powerful and dangerous (the battle with Rabo, with Bishamon and the fact that he was a feared god of war) just adds to it. I would love if people would recognize him more as a god and hopes he will have his own shrine. He's a cute character and definitely the best. Plus those eyes are a bonus but his eyes get prettier when he's mad. *-*

Yato is the best god of calamity, honestly, I think he is a god of weirdness, a total goofball and he dosen't deserve how he was treated when he was young. The guy just gets funnier and funnier throughout the series. he is badass when he fought against Rabou and bishamonten (series 2). YAto's eyes are so beautiful that I wanted eyes like his. he fought phantoms, gods, shinkis, masked-ones, izanami and her servants, and he believes in cacypers, he never gets sad in anything except when hiyori's memories were gone, Ebisu's death, the first shire he got from hiyori, when he had to give up on his money and yukine won't go to cacyper land with him.

2 Yukine Yukine

LOTS OF SPOILERS : I used to hate Yukine really much, but his character took such a major change towards the end of season 1. He has one of the best character development ever in the series, and despite causing quite a lot of troubles, he made up for it by sacrificing himself protecting Yato and becoming a Blessed Regalia in season 2. - Goku02

Yukine is my favorite character throughout the series.

Yukine is funny and quite sarcastic. Also he can be pretty awesome as a weapon

He is too cute...

3 Bishamonten Bishamonten

I said she was the best so she is the best

She's one of my favourite female characters ever! Bishamon is a real badass, she's beautiful, kind, caring, she went out of her way to protect her Shinki, and despite being one of the strongest war gods out there, she's also one of the nicest. Her past is reallu interesting, and I like the nickname "Crazy Chick" Yato gave her - Goku02

I know she’s an idit but still somewhat awesome. - Undistinguished

4 Kofuku Kofuku

Kofuku, the God of Poverty, and also the God of Adorableness! She's funny, kind, but is pretty scary when she gets serious, earning respect from war gods the likes of Bishamonten. I love her 'partner in crime' relationship with Yato. Yato x Kofuku BROTP for the win! - Goku02

Although ko fuk u isn't a lot of fun by herself, her combination with daikoku beats any other character. Throughout the shoe, whenever she has shown up, there hadn't been one time I haven't laughed.

Has the best comic relief through out the series and ova. Not the most artistically detailed in most scenes but it shows her funny side

How is she only fourth on this list? This is a crime.

5 Hiyori

Meh. I really appreciate the fact that she is not annoying like most of shounen female leads, and is actually rather useful for a normal human ( though the problems she helps to solve are all caused by herself, unintentionally yeah but still ) but she's just too dull and boring. She became increasingly dull as the series goes on ( after season 2 ). She isn't annoying, but she isn't interesting either, just kinda there. Not my favourite. - Goku02

Honestly, I don't like her at all and I feel tired of all fans who worship her like she was the best anime character ever. Hiyori is very flawless; she is always kind, friendly, pure hearted, brave, intelligent, everything she says is right, she is smarter than gods (and shinki) who have lived for more than 1000 years, half of her school has a crush on her, Yato is obsessed with her etc. That's boring. All characters from the manga have some flaws and are complicated. Hiyori is a walking perfection. I feel tired of her, especially after the latest arc because honestly - she had absolutely nothing to do there. Everything was mostly about the gods and their shinki. Hiyori was there for fan service (showing panties while jumping etc). I also feel pissed off when I hear that Yato should marry her. Excuse me, but the closest person for every god should and is their guide post, not 16 years old school girls. Yato should work on his bonds with Yukine. Being obsessed over a teen girl is sick. ...more

She has to be one of my most favorite anime girls of all time! She's an adorable closet martial arts nerd and knows how to take care of herself. I ship her with Yato so hard and I love seeing them together!

I love her she is just so funny and yato to but yukine is kind of annoying with that yellow hair he's look like chicken

6 Kazuma

Kazuma's past was really intriguing and he's so loyal to Bishamon. He can be funny at times as well. - Goku02

Such strength...trying so hard not to blight Bishamonten because he loves her

Kazuma is lit.His loyalty to Bishamonten makes him even better

7 Daikoku

Daikoku is hilarious with his constant criticisms of Yato and how he constantly bickering with him but secretly caring for him all the same. - Goku02

8 Rabo Rabo

Rabo seems quite misunderstood. I sympathizes with him quite a lot. - Goku02

9 Nora

At the beginning of Noragami I used to hate Nora. But then, as the series goes on ( especially after season 2 ended ), I have to say that Nora has become one of my favourite characters ever! She's so misunderstood, she died so yound and cared for Yato so much, yet Father corrupted her. I truly feel sorry for her when Yato released her name. - Goku02

10 Tenjin

Tenjin is the great hilarious fellow who secretly helps Yato behind Heaven's back! BROTP 4evah. - Goku02

The Contenders

11 Mayu

Mayu is really funny. - Goku02

She's cool - MavisVermillion

12 Ebisu Ebisu

Despite his stern face, he's really funny. I felt so sad when he was executed :( - Goku02

13 Ichiya Ichiya

What is Ichiya doing here?

He was a good character in Noragami!
