Top 10 Scariest Anime Characters

The Top Ten Scariest Anime Characters

1 Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter

This guy gives me chills when he's on screen. I feel really bad for Gon, he freaks out whenever he sees Hisoka

When The Joker and Pennywise the Clown had sex, the result of that was creating Hisoka.

YUP! ! YUP! ! This dude made me want to hug Gon, because he always freaks out when it comes to... Hisoka. That dude, is just... Oh, god...

Kinda reminds me of Marilyn Manson

2 Lucy - Elfin Lied

I love lucy she is so cute and scary

Lucy isn't very scary, but shes still awesome

Lucy had an extremely messed up childhood. She's not scary, just damaged. Damaged people (Diclonii, in her case) can do scary things, and yeah she did some bad stuff, but that doesn't necessarily make her scary.
(Kyubey from Puella Magi Madoka Magica would be at the top of this list, if I had it my way. )

She is sooo COOOL AND DARK it's epic

3 Yuno Gasai - Future Dairy

She is by far the cutest psycho that I have ever seen. The author really outdid himself. By far the scariest character you could possibly think of.

She is so scary. Cute and insane. The way she talks about killing is too scary. As if it is an everyday task. For her, it is. She kills without any care.

Imagine having satan as a girlfriend

She's so smart and Creepy

4 Ai Enma - Hell Girl Ai Enma is the main protagonist of the series, and is the one known as the "Jigoku Shoujo"--地獄少女--literally translated into English version as "Hell Girl." As such, she makes a regular appearance in the series, although her appearance is smaller and less frequent in "Hell Girl Three Vessels". more.

This girl is scary because of her near emotionless personality. The way she creeps behind people is so shocking. Don't even get me started on her assistants. Hone Onna, Ren and Wan Yudo are just as scary as her with all the weird stuff they do. - cardbeybrawl777

...Are you certain she doesn't display normal behavior? ...She resembles me...

Ai is SO Scary and cool at the same time. Like the way she just appears behind people, the way she is just emotionless makes her scary, But her "Ippen... Shinde miru? " is just so spooky and awesome. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

If a robot would look like a teenage girl, then this the result.
She's emotionless.

5 Sachiko Shinozaki - Corpse Party

How is a guy from Digimon scary? Sachiko is a young child who tortures others for FUN. She enjoys stabbing out eyeballs, ripping out intestines, dissecting live people, and stabs people with her SCISSORS! Oh ps, she also cut off a head of a elementary student! Dragon Ball people aren't scary and Digimon? What?!?

I don't get how one girl can be so creepy I had watched a scene of that one flashback and I had to look around my room for any sign of a little girl

How is she not number one I started watching the corpse party anime when I was 15 and I had nightmares for countless week

I think Sachiko should definitely be number 1, she is the most psychotic and horrifying by far!

6 Lucemon - Digimon Fusion

HOW THE CRAP IS LUCEMON NOT TOP 5? THIS GUY IS SCARY! He may look innocent but behind his innocent mask HE IS PURE EVIL! He fooled so many people! He basically represents Satan! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Its kind of funny that a digimon character is on here...

He's not scary

7 Johan Liebert - Monster

Johan is literally one of a kind. Throughout the entire series of Monster I got to see this psycho at work and man it was scary. Obviously he didn't look scary but seriously, when you see his actions, they will give you nightmares.

Ironically he looks angelic but inside oozes nastiness.. Describe as a manipulative serial-killer. Of all the characters listed here. He is the only one I don't want to stumble with! This Guy may exist in real life, that's what's makes him so scary.

Why is he number 1? Because he is a manipulative phsycopath who has no real name. Through out the entire show, he is known as the Devil or the Nameless Monster. Do I even need to explain, why he's so scary? Watch Monster if you want to know what I mean. - cardbeybrawl777

He's so scary because of his both lack of emotion but also great verve. He's efficient and cruel.

8 Russia - Hetalia

He's not creepy just misunderstood... And I love him so much like seriously he's so cute!

Scary but also cute in a way ya'know?

Don't hug him, okay?

Normal people say "Russia"
Hetalia fans say "RUUSSIIAAA"

9 Light Yagami - Death Note Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Light is an evil genius who is capable of killing anyone with a flick of a pen. Do I really need to explain why he's so scary?! - cardbeybrawl777

I agree on this one, but some of these aren't even scary. they're just really ruthless, like Cell. - llamabaconllama37

As long as this guy doesn't know your name, he can never kill you.

Light Yagami died a cold heartless bastard

10 Shiro - Deadman Wonderland

Shiro has always been my most favorite character out of all the animes I've watched just because of how bubbly and cheerful she is. And how deadly she can be when her split personality (Wretched Egg) takes over.

Out of all the characters of Deadman Wonderland, why did I put Shiro. The reason I put her on this list is because of her split personality and how it comes out so unexpectedly. - cardbeybrawl777

I agree. Shiro always creeped me out, even at the beginning. Mockingbird did too. She was too happy and childish in a place like Deadman Wonderland. Her split personality was like whiplash. But overtime I came to actually like Shiro.

The Contenders

11 Ash Landers - Black Butler

More than scary he/she is the creepiest character ever. You don't get to be the hottest looking angel and then change your gender to a guy for whatever creepy purposes you have.

This is the most evil portrayal of an angel ever. He/She is a crazy phsycopath that wants to purify the world of it's filth. Do I really need to say why he/she is so scary. Ash left the queen to die and Angela made a scary mix of both Ciel's mom and dad. - cardbeybrawl777

Ash is freaky as crap. He is all bout "purifying" and stuff but... No laugh out loud

12 Glutonny - Fullmetal Alchemist

He is both one of the cutest and one of the most terrifying characters in all of anime.

If you think Glutonny is creepy, wait til' you see Pride. He's the one of the biggest examples you can get to a character that's a true monster on the inside and outside.

Do I really need to explain this one? Getting eaten alive by this guy is such a horryfing way to die. Having a thought that a near unstoppable tub of lard that is pretty much immortal hunting you down so he can eat you alive will bring fear to anyone. - cardbeybrawl777

Wrath vs. Gluttony. Wrath is like a pebble being flicked and crunched in someone's mouth.

13 Smiling Titan - Attack on Titan

Holy mother of CRAP these are TERRIFYING! These creatures KILL FOR FUN! Need I say more? - wXDarkcoolXw

Creepy. Need I say more?

14 Creed - Black Cat

He is scary because he is the only anime character that is close to representing a serial killer. He murders Saya and was all like"I freed you from a curse of an evil witch" and expects Train to just stay calm what man. Do I really need to explain as to why he's so scary. Also people in my anime club ask me,"Is Creed gay? " My answer to that is maybe, since he's so obssesed with Train I'm gonna Maybe. So all I need to say is that Creed is a phsycopath who is just power hungry. - cardbeybrawl777

15 Cell - Dragon Ball Z Cell is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama. He is the main antagonist of the Android Saga, being an android/artificial life form from the future, whose goal is to become "perfect" via absorbing Androids 17 and 18 and becoming the strongest fighter in the universe.

His tail looks like a penis but besides that he isn't scary.

Majin Buu was scarier than this guy.

Sure cell takes your insides from you slowly, but Majin Buu takes over your whole entire in seconds and he can turn you into food and/or clay.

Oh come on, the thought that this thing and absorb you with his tail just to get stronger will scare anyone. - cardbeybrawl777

The way he melts that man though... 0_0

16 Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

She is a psychopath, way more crazier than Yuno in my opinion. She doesn't kill you right away, she slowly and painful tortures you. She's also cold and manipulative doing what it takes to get what she wants. Not to mention she's a sadist because she enjoys watching your pain and suffering. In my opinion, this is the creepiest character in anime. Higurashi scarred me so much.

So Higurashi has a very, very weird story that's actually composed of several stories. Shion is the creepiest character in all of them. It's not so much the murdering; anybody can do that. No, the real reason she's scary is twofold.

1: She's so incredibly manipulative of everybody around her.

And 2: How damn CALM she is when she's killing everyone. At least near the start. Then she becomes completely INSANE. The main hallmark? That laugh. The laugh that haunts my nightmares.

Why is Yuno Gasai higher than this. Just stay away from Yukki and you're fine. Nobody escapes shion. She's by far the scariest. There are ways to avoid everyone in front of her. She's never going to be avoided. I love Higurashi so much. - VocaloidFan1119

Yuno: Instantly stabs or shoots you. Done. "Yukkii! "
Shion: Slowly tortures you to death "Ahahaaha! "
Yet Yuno is No. 4 and Shion is No. 21? These Yuno guys have no idea what Hinamizawa Syndrome does to you. Hell, forget Shion, ANY character from Higurashi that contracts the late stages of Hinamizawa Syndrome is scarier anything Mirai Nikki throws at you. Well, except maybe Satoko, but she still killed her parents in extreme paranoia.
And by the way, she is NOT Mion. Watch the anime first

17 Kid Buu - Dragon Ball Z Kid Buu is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
18 Mei Misaki - Another Mei Misaki is the female protagonist of Another and a student of Class 3-3 in 1998. She was labeled by her classmates as "the one that does not exist."

You´re kidding right? She is the cutest, most adorable character ever made.

I think Mei is more cute than scary. The really scary ones are the rest of the class at the end of the series.

19 Belarus - Hetalia

She's a crazy stalker who even manages to scare Russia! She leaves claw marks on his door for god's sake!

A creepy brother-stalker who is obsessed with incest shipping herself with Russia (her brother)

She is pretty scary... Poor Russia

She scares me a ton

20 Kyubey - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Kyubey is a fictional character from the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

I could not sleep last night because of s stupid cat/bunny emotionless creep who is dooming innocent girls!

I had nightmares for days, I was so scared.

Don't let his looks deceive you. While he may look like your typical cutesy magical girl sidekick on the outside, on the inside...well, *spoiler alert* he turns girls into magical girls so they can fight monsters known as witches who were magical girls that were corrupted by the witch essence left on their transformation devices, thus the magical girls are slowly getting corrupted into the monsters themselves, and when they get destroyed by the magical girls, they get turned into corrupted and destroyed transformation devices where they are then somehow eaten by Kyubey just to keep his race alive. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Yeaaah, it was probably right that Homura tried to kill this creepily adorable manipulator from turning Madoka into the ultimate magical girl to destroy the world... - OnyxDash

21 Nina Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Nina Tucker is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.
22 Tatarigami - Princess Mononoke

Luckaly only 2!

Did you know for some resion the pictures on Google images are more scary than the animation
look it up if you don't beleve me

Like this is really the only anime character that still scares me
and I have wached toyko ghoul

23 Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Shou Tucker is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

This is literally the only anime character I can think of that has ever made me fearful of an anime show. He is not the most powerful villain in the world, he is not a serial killer or a representation of death. He is simple a alchemical scientist and a dad. The thing that makes him so un-comparably scary is the lengths he has gone for the sake of his research. In the series it was noted that he murdered his wife through alchemy to further his research of chimeras and years after lying to everyone about her death he conducts an experiment with the family dog and his daughter essentially fusing the two to create an inexplicably eerie chimera with his daughters emotions and thoughts still attached. In probably the darkest scene I have ever witnessed, this man deserves to be at the top. Chills have never failed to follow the thoughts of this scene even after so many years of this anime's release.

This man turned his one and only daughter into a talking chimera by combining her with her dog. Why did he do this? To save his State Alchemist Certification.
Shou Tucker = The Worst Father Ever.

The most hated anime charecter ever (spoopy)

24 Nina - Code Geass

She hump a table!

How dare she knock up the table. The table is nothing wrong... Despite being a tab,e

I feel so bad for Table-Kun... she raped him...

25 Nui Harime - Kill La Kill

Satan incarnate in a dress. The combo between innocent appearance and calm sadism is just petrifying. If I woke up and saw her staring at me I would die before I had time to scream. Needs to be Top 5 for sure

Her theme... Oh GOD, her theme!

This girl should be higer. she's and actual creep. Could be besties with Yuno

26 Orochimaru - Naruto Orochimaru is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Besides the fact that he's so hot and sexy, Orochimaru is exactly the definition of word creepy. He's scary and creepy on a cool, sexy way.

This guy is a snake-pedo-man. Jesus, I mean sure he’s a great villain (despite doing disturbing things with his body) but I mean he is OBSESSED with Sasuke. We all know he has a shrine of him in his bedroom. It’s gross.

27 Yakumo Oomori - Tokyo Ghoul

Just horrifying

Jason is a ghoul from Tokyo ghoul that fancies killing and harming. Even his face looks like some kind of monster that just ate 1000 people in 10 seconds. He has a room that he calls "playroom". In the room he has dozens of tools for torture, hundreds of buckets full of clipped fingers and toes of the victms. Lastly, there world be a chair where the victm is locked up.

P.S. the dead body of the victm will always be on the chair until the new on comes in!

28 Tendo Kozunu - Tokyo Majin

This guy is a really well done villan. I mean come on an evil sorcerer that can turn you into a demon with a blink of an eye well derserves a spot on this count down - cardbeybrawl777

29 Broly - Dragon Ball Z: Broly Broly is the main antagonist in the Broly Triple Threat trilogy and Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. He appears to be the latest of the Legendary Super Saiyans who appear every thousand years. His father was Paragus.

Well he isn't scary he's just OP badass

30 Shogo Makishima - Psycho Pass
31 Pride - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Pride. Looks like Alucard from Hellsing had a child.

Oh what a cute little chil- OH HECK NO

32 Baron Kelvin - Black Butler

Jesus.. watching this series and seing this guy in it just sent me the shivers. I hate him. And he also keeps kids as servants?! I think this guy needs to be moved up.

He's crazy. That's all that I can say.

33 Ryūgū Rena - Higurashi When They Cry

How can this creepy girl is not in the list? I thought she is on the top 10! Shine is scarier though.

Love her, definitely the creepiest laugh I ever heard

34 Gaara Of The Desert - Naruto

Something about him is

That guy when he was 11 years old he is flipping scary but when he was younger he was really cute.
As a teen he is really hot though

This guy will kill for the sake of living...which means he LIVES TO KILL. He has a demon inside of him, and it makes him all the more dangerous.When he's killing, he will make THE scariest smile you've EVER seen (Except for psycho killers' faces...) Gaara is the sheer definition of psycho ninja. He does get a little less scary in Naruto Shippuden, so my point is he's a lot scarier in Naruto. (During the Chunin exams) - wXDarkcoolXw

One of garaas most brutal kills was in the chunky exams one of the genine had a umbrella he took the umbrella and squished him like a bug with sand and used the umbrella to not get the blood dropping from the sky

35 Mayuri Kurotsuchi - Bleach
36 Levi - Attack on Titan Levi Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. He accompanies the main protagonists in the second half of season 1. His most notable feature is being "Humanity's strongest".

Don't mess with the Ackermans

Hanji is actually said be the scariest when angry. But don't frack Mikasa or Levi. You won't walk out alive.

Don't frack with the Ackermans. But don't forget that Isayama said that Hanji Zoe is actually the scariest when angry. Still, don't piss of Levi either.

37 Ribrianne - Dragon Ball Super

I like Brianne de Chateau.

38 Envy - Fullmetal Alchemist

Envy should be in the Top 10.
He can change his appearance to appear to like anyone anything you're afraid of. You might not know whether could be standing right in front of you.


39 Louise Francoise Le Blanc de La Valliere - Familiar of Zero

I understand for those who don't watch this show, but for people who do, it is accurate. This cute, tiny, pink-haired girl is not cotton candy. She blows her lover into the sky if he's seen looking at another girl.

40 Midousuji Akira - Yowamushi Pedal

His face and movements makes him the most creepy thing I have ever laid my eyes on.

Midosuji is just misunderstood. What happened to his mom was really sad.

41 Eren Jaeger - Attack On Titan Eren Yeager, spelled Eren Jaeger in the Funimation dub, is a fictional character appearing as the protagonist from the manga series Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama.
42 Vicious - Cowboy Bebop
43 Rei Ayanami - Neon Genesis Evangelion Rei Ayanami is a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. She is the First Child (First Children in the Japanese version), pilot of the Evangelion Unit-00 and one of the female main characters.

She seems like your fairly normal textbook kuudere at first...until you realize that that's only because she has no soul. And then there's the weird scene with the Rei clones being dismembered...while laughing. And the Kentucky Fried Rei, and the Giant Naked Rei, and the original Rei getting strangled.

44 Death Gun - Sword Art Online II

Why isn't he on the list already? He haunts me in my dreams... - Absolite

45 Sonozaki Mion - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
46 Ferid Bathory - Seraph of The End
47 Gin - Detective Conan
48 Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

He is one of the strongest pirates in the world and he has a oversized mouth, and he is a wanted man worth 400 million bellies. Do I need to say more

Moral of the story: Do not mess with someone who can take down over 50,000 people with just a glare and easily stomp you, even if they are idiots.

He can start hitting you in the Face just because you think pie is better than meat

49 Sonozaki Shion - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

Can be caring, playful, smart but also deceptive, demented, cunning and vengeful. She is a better and much more complex vesion of Yuno Gasai or to be precise Yuno Gasai is a boring, one-dimensional version of Shion Sonozaki.

The girl watched Rika comitting suicide, and she was cracking up

50 Vincent Nightray - Pandora Hearts
