The Contenders: Page 3

41 Toushirou Hitsugaya - Bleach

Come on Shiro-kun is A PRODIGY he reaches captain at such you age!

42 Meruem - Hunter x Hunter Meruem - Hunter x Hunter

Beat nearly every gameboard player by just playing the game a few times, tore of netero's arm and leg by predicting his moves.

He can't beat sora and shiro in a game but...he would be easily in top five in such a list! he bet everyone in every game except for gungi against komugi and he didn't predict the moves from netero he searched for the error in the rhythim of netero (who is by far the strongest character in hunter x hunter and had almost perfect techniques (except for meruem of course! ))and he used that little error to rip his arm and leg of his intelligence can not be compared to humans mind

43 Naomi Misora - Death Note Naomi Misora - Death Note

She's an extraordinary agent. She's the smartest Death Note female character. She should be higher. - Goku02

Naomi is very intelligent it is a shame that Light managed to trick her.

44 Tokuchi Toa - One Outs

No expression of fear even in toughest situation, natural mind without power, cool and best thing is 'all or nothing' league...

45 Beyond Birthday - Death Note

Beyond Birthday sold be higher up, probably in second place. The only reason he is this low is because few know who he is.

The only reason he is this low on the list is because most people probably do not know who he is.

46 Shinichi Akiyama - Liar Game

I hesitated between him, Yokoya, Tokuchi, Akagi and Haneda (Shinichi and L are just behind) but he seemed to be the smartest to me thanks to the crazy strategies he came up with to outsmart Yokoya.

What is thid guy doing here! If you haven't read the manga. he's actually the same intelegence as L and Light, even smarter because he doesn't have anyally exept for a honest girl. The most bad.ass smartass in my opinion...(just don't be lazy and read liar game -.-

47 Yuuko Ichihara - xxxHolic

Basically knows everything because everything is inevitable

48 Lucy Heartfilia - Fairy Tail Lucy Heartfilia - Fairy Tail Lucy Heartfilia is a wizard in the guild, Fairy Tail . Her magic is called celestial spirit magic which allows her to summon spirits from another world . She currently possesses fifteen celestial keys, which is an extraordinary number for a celestial mage. She gets along best with Team Natsu, containing more.

She is smarter than erza and luffy and also why is luffy here he is idot

How, exactly, is Lucy higher than Erza?

She is not smarter than erza on the galuna island she asked to dig a pit as a trap for the enemies and natsu and erza fell in that pit

People seem to forget that Lucy is smart because of her looks. She was the ONLY ONE on Tenrou Island to figure out where Mavis' grave was.

49 Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes is a childhood friend of Erza Scarlet. When he lost his own memory, he was a Dark Mage who desperately sought to revive Zeref via the R-System. Jellal served as the main antagonist of the Tower of Heaven arc and is currently a member and co-founder of Crime Sorcière.

He's a genius and child prodigy! He has mastered various types of magic including Heavenly Body Magic, Darkness Magic, Magic Staves, Fire Magic, Water Magic, Earth Magic, Air Magic, Telekinesis, Telepathy, Thought Projection,... He was able to copy Mystogan's magic in an extremely short amount of time. He has deceived the whole Magic Council into believing him and is certainly one of the most intelligent Fairy Tail characters. - Goku02

He should be higher than Gray, Lucy, Erza, Levy and probably Mavis too. - Goku02

How the hell is he in no. 93? he is extremely smart and intelligent. Child prodigy is an understatement for him

Evil genius

He's not evil. It seems like you have just watched the beginning of Fairy Tail? - Goku02

50 Osamu Dazai - Bungou Stray Dogs Osamu Dazai - Bungou Stray Dogs

Better than Rampo!

51 Reinhard von Lohengramm - Legend of the Galactic Heroes

A true Emperor. He's not a character that's been said to be smart but one we deduced he is by watching him resolving political struggles and fighting against space-troops. From nothing he climbed up the social scales and became the ruler of the universe, is a genius strategist and tactician unlike someone who used a superpower and always got his ass saved by a redhaired.

52 Shinichi Kudo - Detective Conan Shinichi Kudo - Detective Conan

I don't know about u all but shinichi is supposed to be top ten
Not hereee
Can u all see it?
He's clearly the smartest of them all

53 Keima Katsuragi - The World God Only Knows

He is very smart otaku

The second best character ever in the history of the mankind he should be second and first should be ShioriShiomiya she is so kawai I wish I can marry her

54 Levy McGarden - Fairy Tail Levy McGarden - Fairy Tail

From me, Levy is so smart! She can rewrite Freed rune in just half a minute! Also, she have a great roles during the Fighting Festival arc. I mean, when she talks all the thing about the words.. I think my head spinning! She's maybe small and weak but she gives us proof that even we weak, we still can win (using our brain, of course)!

She's not THAT smart. She's nerdy more than smart. - Goku02

I love that girl. She is smart. Brains are better than Brawns. She is small and weak but genius

55 Misaki Ayuzawa - Kaichou Wa Maid Sama Misaki Ayuzawa - Kaichou Wa Maid Sama

I think luffy is smarter than a donkey

Misaki is definitely smarter than luffy

This is right on ^-^

56 Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail

Gray is really smart. He knows when he has to be serious

57 Minato Namikaze - Naruto Minato Namikaze - Naruto

How can Minato be 42th place? He is much smarter than this and I know it! Who else can think as quick as he can? I believe Minato should be in a higher place.

Minato is definitely intelligent!

58 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want more.

She's cool, but not that smart - Goku02

Levy should take her place

I don't know about book-smarts, but her battle-intuition is unmatched.

She is very smart. She is one who figured out the curse of galuna island. She always has an excellent plan of fighting. She was also smart in the lullaby case. She is really genius

59 Joseph Joestar - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Joseph Joestar - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Joseph Joestar is a fictional character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series created by Hirohiko Araki.
60 Kabuto - Pokemon
