The Contenders: Page 4

61 Kami Tenchi - Lord of Nightmares, and Truth
62 Tatsuya Shiba - The Irregular At Magic High School

Developed multiple magic devices while still in high school including a flying device.

63 Gin - Bleach
64 Neji Hyūga - Naruto Neji Hyūga - Naruto

A genius

Really smart calm and aewsome not dumb like hinata hyogu

65 Maka Albarn - Soul Eater Maka Albarn - Soul Eater

Everybody knows the smartest Soul Eater character is... DEATH THE KID! Symmetry is life!

66 Toa Tokuchi - One Outs

He is a master gambler.

67 Shikaku Nara - Naruto

You all say Shikamaru is smart well his father is 100x more intelligent. He commanded all by himself every single able ninja in the war all by himself with no help. Every kage and ninja commended him as his plans were the greatest.

Shikaku is so smart he was placed as temporary supreme commander of the allied shinonbi force by the raikage who hardly knew him

Shikaku is as smart as Shikamaru. And so Shikadai is

68 Mayuri Kurotsuchi - Bleach Mayuri Kurotsuchi - Bleach

Smart as hell and I don't get how a smart high schooler is fouth just because he has a high IQ and is mentally insane when he obtains power to kill bad guys and rule the world when he gets outsmarted by a 10 year old. this guy is probably smarter than half the people on this list including L because he's just high with sugar all the time

Well,I dunno why he isn't replacing light in 2nd place because he is obviously smarter and cooler than him.He is funny,smart and overall a badass.He is unharmed in most of his battles and always has a plan before fighting strong opponents.

69 Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)
70 Nico Robin - One Piece Nico Robin - One Piece

She should be in the top ten.

71 Yang Wenli - Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Miracle Yang, Elfassil Hero, the genius tactician and the only one who can rivals the great Reinhard von Lohengramm. He's always outnumbered but managed to win his battles. He was always one step ahead of the Empire troops, and was literally fighting against everyone at a point(besides his subordinates).

72 Miles "Tails" Prower - Sonic X Miles Miles Prower, more commonly known by his nickname Tails, is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a significant main character after the title character Sonic, who is also his best friend.

Dude, this is primarily a video game character. Even if this is an anime adaptation of the video game series, Tails should be in a Smartest Video Game Characters list instead.

He built a car that can circle the earth in half a jar of kosher pickles. If that isn't smart, I don't know what is.

He is the smartest. He can build a jet, communicator watch, and many more. He is only 8 years old

73 Shogo Makishima - Psycho-Pass

How is he not in the top ten? He Proved a perfect system (Sybil System) to be worthless. He has so much knowledge on philosophy and psychology. He knows how the human mind works to the very detail

In my opinion he should be at least top 5.

74 Lisbeth - Sword Art Online Lisbeth - Sword Art Online Rika Shinozaki is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Wait, how is she smart? I know she's a blacksmith, but I can think of SAO characters smarter than her.

75 Buggy - One Piece

This idiot?! LOL - Tia-Harribel

76 Kaitou KID/Kuroba Kaito - Detective Conan/Magic Kaito 1412

I love this guy and he is definitely smart. I know he acts like a goof sometimes but he did learn how to steal jewels almost on his own and has not been caught, even when faced with Conan/Jimmy. I guess we don't really think of him because A not many people watch this and B usually smart characters are one way and if there not then there thought of as a prankster. I have seen it before were someone would play a prank and all anyone sees is them being childish but with all the work and figuring it takes a lot and they should be given more credit. But ya know maybe that's just me.

Honestly I'm surprise nobody thought of Kaito. I mean, the guy's an obvious genius that can outsmart literally the entire police force. He's 17 years old and an uncatchable phantom thief who sends out advance notices in the forms of honest-to-god riddles! Not to mention if Shinichi's up there on the leaderboard, I should think Kaito should be up there too considering he is the only one that can go toe to toe with THE Famous Detective Kudo Shinichi - but that's just my opinion.

This guy is on par with Conan in intelligence. - Goku02

He is damn smart probably as smart as conan edogawa he shouldn't be down here

77 Piccolo - Dragon Ball Piccolo - Dragon Ball Piccolo is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. He first appeared in chapter 161 of the Dragon Ball manga in the Shonen Jump magazine on February 22, 1988. He is a member of the alien Namekian race and has abilities such as ki manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, more.

I can't believe no-one added Piccolo yet. He's one of the wisest Dragon Ball characters. - Goku02

How is Piccolo not the highest dragon ball character on the list. He literally has 3 people including himself inside him. Early in z you already started to see his battle smarts become front and center in battles with Nappa and Raditz. He originally had all the knowledge of his father, who keep in mind I believe lived for hundreds of years. After absorbing nail, he learned about Namek. That's an assumption but he does recognize Dende who piccolo himself never met. Once trunks arrives he's the one to inform the others of the androids and takes on a leadership role. Though this was stupid, he got cell to expose his plan. One thing to keep in mind is that he's similar to trunks and wants to get things done unlike the saiyans who are just looking for a challenge. But what really seals the deal was when he absorbed Kami and gained all the knowledge the guardian had accumulated over the earth and beyond. Piccolo knows so many techniques and has taught 3 students. He's definitely up there. - Heatnix23

78 Haru Yoshida - My Little Monster
79 Truth - Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood
80 Happy - Fairy Tail Happy - Fairy Tail

Happy is the smartest living being in all anime existence. ~somewhat~
