Top 10 Scariest Anime Characters


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

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

22 Nina - Code Geass

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

23 Nui Harime - Kill La Kill 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

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

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

I had nightmares for days, I was so scared.

25 Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Shou Tucker - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

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)

26 Yakumo Oomori - Tokyo Ghoul Yakumo Oomori - Tokyo Ghoul

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!

27 Shogo Makishima - Psycho Pass
28 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

29 Pride - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Pride. Looks like Alucard from Hellsing had a child.

30 Orochimaru - Naruto 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.

31 Broly - Dragon Ball Z: Broly Broly - Dragon Ball Z: Broly
32 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.

33 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

34 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.

35 Sonozaki Mion - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
36 Levi - Attack on Titan 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.

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 Gin - Detective Conan
38 Sonozaki Shion - Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni 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

39 Vincent Nightray - Pandora Hearts
40 Mr Gates - Full Metal Panic the Second Raid

You wouldn't want to get on his bad side, although, he doesn't really have a good side
