The Contenders: Page 2
The true God of manipulation, his genius has no limits and he doesn't even need a book that kills people whose names are written in it or an eye power that controls people.
I find it truly criminal that some people have not experienced the masterful manipulation that his character executes.
Can someone explain to me why Sakura (ffs) is in the top10 and this guy isn't? He's far smarter than Lelouch and Light. He should de at least top3. I swear, these top10s are so biased. - Galahad
The Monster. At 10, he manipulated a whole orphanage to kill each other. At 15 he created a money loundering company and just left once he got tired of it. At 20 he was a serial killer that nobody believed he existed, could manipulated anyone to kill themselves or to obey him.
So Sakura is in top 10 but Johan isn't? Clearly the common person watching anime doesn't know anything about Johan and his intelligence. He's more intelligent than L and Light, combined. People are idiots. Johan is so intelligent that he can make all of people in this list kill each other by the sheer skill of manipulation, those who've watched monster know what I'm talking about.V 5 Comments
How the hell Sakura is above her? She must be at Top 10. No Game No Life characters aren't on the Top 10 althought they deserve, too. This list is lame.
A.k.a fairy tactician, smartest in that anime I guess
She should be waaayy higher than Gray, even in the top 5
He is like the father of all geniuses! Go Google it out
This is his second time on this list
Why is he not ranked higher? :IHe, along with his sister, should be ranked about 4 or 5 on the list. The main reason they aren't higher is that they are terrible at doing anything in real life. They are geniuses at games, and nobody on this list could defeat them in one. If they could get over their fear of the real world, they would be the smartest anime characters to ever live.
Sora is a genius he plans so far ahead to make the next move to his advantage. He and his sister are an unstoppable team.
Sora is extremely smart and is admittedly an unstoppable intellectual team with his sister, Shiro.
SORA IS SOSOSOSOSOSOSO SMART HE IS TACTICAL AND TERRIFYING AS LONG AS HE IS WITH SHIRO THINGS ARE ALWAYS OK U GEDDIT?! THIS IS A GUY WORTHY OF THE #1 SPOT ON THIS LIST!V 13 Comments
The anime doesn't do this character justice. In the manga and the Death Note novel he's a genius.
He's a an evil genius. - Goku02
May not be smart in the traditional sense, as he often become caught up in his emotions, but the fact that he knows the chemical composition of pretty much everything certainly counts for something, also after being taught by Izumi he understands how everything is connected in the world. He has on multiple occasions cracked very difficult codes, and not to mention the sheer determination of the character.
This site is completely based on votes Edward elric is second smart after conan /shinichi
Oh yeah, Edward is very clever, until someone calls him short
He was the youngest state alchemist and has the knowledge of alchemy,chemistry&biology with a detective like reasoning.V 1 Comment
He is smart.. He could combine plant cells with Hashirama cells and making zetsu
Though he was fooled by Black Zetsu he was pretty smart. HE made it so he can give Nagato his Rinnegan and use it in the future to revive himself to put the world inside a genjutsu.V 2 Comments
Even aizen admits that kisuke is the only soul reaper that has greater intellect than him
Definitely smart, should be part of top ten.
Smartest badass in all of anime
Cleverest bleach character, should be in the top ten.
Even Aizen admits that Kisuke is the only soul reaper that is more clever than him, created the hogyoku. Founded the research and development.
Obviously the smartest character, everything he does is calculated, he is a mastermind for all the games and can trick and manipulate others so easily. He has a degree in psychology and got into an elite university despite being extremely poor, only by using his wits, he even brought down an MLM. Smarter than lelouch, light, L, and Kudo. Definitely deserves number 1 spot, he could outsmart L and light and lelouch any day.
Liar Game isn't mainstream so many people haven't read it. And boy are they missing out. Plot-wise, Liar Game is hands down the smartest series on this list and as its genius mastermind, Akiyama deserves the number one spot on this list.
In my opinion he's smarter than Lelouch. And yeah, I've watched Code Geass so don't tell me I don't know my stuff.
Why is this Man low I think he should be number two at this listV 6 Comments
I really feel like he should be a little bit higher up on the list, a few places before Mello.
I don't know, he is kind of intelligent
Set everything up perfectly in the story so he could revive Kaguya and retrieve all chakra from humans.
He should be in the top 5.he was planning to revive his mother for like a 1000 years.he changed the uchiha stone tablet and tricked madara
Shiro is able to figure out games and schemes in a matter of seconds! She is able to learn a new language in a matter of minutes! She never lost a game of chess- and on top of that she's only 11!
She memorised all states of the Chess board and even said "It's no different from tictac toe". She learnt a whole new language in an hour too.
What the... she's 22? Oh God, but she definitely deserves to be in top 5, she's amazing!
I refuse to believe that she is only in top 27. She should be at least in top 3!V 7 Comments
Armin is smart
His quick thinking and intellectual skills make Armin one of the brightest characters.
He may lack physical strength on the battlefield but his wits are always handy and make him one of humanities best soldiers!
Armin really isn't getting he credit he deserves. Out of a desperate attempt to save himself and his friends (which worked) he actually managed to help come up with the plan that resulted in humanity's first victory against the Titans (Eren plugging the hole in
Trost). (Not sure how accurate this part is though)
Then, out of nothing but observed and remembered behaviors and events, Armin manages to deduce the identity of the Female Titan and help come up with a plan to capture her.
Remember that this kid is like 15 but already has the genius of a commander.
Blank consists of 2 people, not just one. - Goku02
They plan obsessively, and the knowledge they've accrued due to their obsession with everything gaming they use with deadly accuracy and precision, and their plans accomplish extraordinarily redundant failsafing. When they say knowledge is power, they mean it, and capitalize upon it immensely.
They should be unstoppable so why is Shiro Alone in the top 10?V 3 Comments
Creepy and evil genius
He is very clever, making the symbol of cures, room dimensions and reincarnation.
I must admit, he is genius
There's too many geniuses in Naruto if we had more point of view we'd see that Kakashi is as smart or even as I dare say smarter than shikamaru
Why isn't he up there with shikamaru
You mean he is lower than luffy and Lucy heartfelia
Smart guy :dV 2 Comments
