Smartest Anime/Manga Characters


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Edogawa Ranpo - Bungou Stray Dogs

This guy is a genius. He figures out everything in a heartbeat, and is the only non-ability user who is still as talented as every other member of the Armed Detective Company, thanks to his extraordinary intelligence. He's definitely the most intelligent anime character I've ever seen ( and he said his father is even smarter than he is... ) - Goku02

The self-proclaimed sole genuine detective within the ADA, when asked to solve a murder in 1 minute, he smirked and said "I won't need that long". Ranpo picks up on clues even Dazai doesn't notice and is asked to solve crimes the police can't figure out. This guy can even tell you what the last words of a victim were, all the while being a non-ability user (despite what he himself thinks). This guy is a remarkable genuis (and he knows it) - just don't let him travel by himself, becasue despite his intelligence he will probably end up getting lost

82 Father - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
83 Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.
84 Naruto - Naruto: Shippuden Naruto - Naruto: Shippuden Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

"He's just weirdly smart! " Shut up.

What Naruto has got to be one the least intelligent anime characters ever, not smart

Naruto's never really been known for being smart but he does come up with some great plans for defeating powerful enemies.

Naruto is a idiot.

85 Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece 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.

Why... He's the one of the stupidest anime characters I've ever known. He must be up this high because people who voted for him just did that for fun. - Goku02

Why is he on this list? He is not smart at all and even though I like him he is such an idiot

What he is my favorite anime character but what? Why is a baka like him in this column?

This man (not actually shown in the anime) possesses the ability to time travel. He jumps world lines, or timelines. This man needs to be top 10, definitely.
