Top Ten Tokyo Ghoul Characters

Vote for your favorite character in the award-winning manga and hit anime Tokyo Ghoul!

The Top Ten

1 Kaneki Ken Kaneki Ken

Obviously. Character development at its BEST

The Only Thing that got better in his life is his hair.

The best thing about can Ken Kaneki (to me) would be his personality. This is only my opinion because I can relate to his life (not the Ghoul part) but not only losing your friends and both parents but yourself as well. This would be my favourite ANIME!

Well duhhh I picked him. It’s a interesting story with him being in the lead,and you can see why. He goes from being a complete wimp to a badass Ghoul.

2 Suzuya Juuzou Suzuya Juuzou

That awkard moment when you thought that he was actually a girl loll but everyone knows juuzou rocks!

His transformation is simply amazing! He is just perfect and cute... It must come as no surprise but he is the best character with one of the most progressive character development. Aye... He is the cutest and strongest lovely muffin!

He is here on the list twice...OH WELL this dude is awesome! He's a crazy, quirky, adorable, and a badass nutcase that you just gotta love!

I wuv him so much

3 Touka Kirishima Touka Kirishima Touka Kirishima is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Tokyo Ghoul created by Sui Ishida.

She is so cute and she looks badass when she fights

Touka is beautiful, badass, and a very interesting character. And even though she seems a bit short tempered at times, she's actually a kind and caring person. She's my favorite character in the show.

She is just SO awesome and cool!

She made me a lesbian

4 Hideyoshi Nagachika Hideyoshi Nagachika

The best friend anybody would need or even want! He is so funny and I just love him! I..I..I have no more words...

He's so cool and funny - TwilightKitsune

He's the only one who is normal

He is literally PERFECT! He's so kind and bright despite everything that's happened; he sacrificed his FACE AND VOICE TO KEN, and he's so smart! I love how he's affected Tokyo Ghoul (:re) from behind the scenes! It's so impressive~~! (And of course, he's adorable! ) - FireFaithe

5 Amon Koutarou

If ken is the main character in the series I can argue the second lead protagonist in the series.

He's an amazing character. I loved seeing him devoted in killing ghouls to save other people's lives and he was such a heroic character!
Also, he's really funny and REALLY loves training.

As much as I love Kaneki, Touka, and a few more characters, Amon is pretty cool. He had more screen time in season two and I thought he had a good personality. His devotion to rid the world of ghouls and make the world a better place is what makes him awesome. Not to mention he's also pretty handsome.

Amon san is ligit he's handsome a strong one eyed ghoul
he's sensitive and nice
and have a strong sense of justice

6 Akira Mado Akira Mado

Love Akira, shes strong and has a cool quinque.

I love her she's beautiful and badass and obviously deserves more love,she also reminds me a lot of Annie Leonhadrt.

7 Uta Uta

I still love Uta and he is still one of my personal favorites, but it really really disappoints me that he turns out to be a villain and a member of the Clowns. He seemed like such a good and friendly character and I thought he was. I hate how the best characters are always evil, especially when they seem like a good guy when they first appear. It kinda ruins it for the fans even if they do still like them. It still love Uta all the same, but it's still disappointing that he turns out to be a villain.

Seriously? No one has anything more to say about him? I wish he had more screen time.

Uta is love, Uta is life.

So mysterious and pretty cool. Wish we had a spinoff series of him, Itori and Yomo when they were younger.

9 Hinami Fueguchi Hinami Fueguchi

She looks so cute - TwilightKitsune

She's so adorable! It stinks that her mother gets killed.

I find Hinami underrated outside of AyaHina. The fact is, both her and Kaneki been through a lot and I admire her for that.

Hinami deserves to be higher in this list! She’s so adorable and precious!

10 Juuzou Suzuya Juuzou Suzuya

The most cool nutcase ever!

Already one here.But I was confused when I saw him.But he is a trap. - DarkBoi-X

He's not a trap his peen got cut off by big madam and he’s both handed I believe in combat making him even more badass

The Contenders

11 Kishou Arima Kishou Arima Kishou Arima is a major antagonist turned protagonist of the manga/anime, Tokyo Ghoul, and its successor, Tokyo Ghoul:re.

What the hell. He can easily beat ken

He was the strongest CCG Investigator and his hidden identity was One Eyed King

The only person who could beat him was himself.

He's a character with depth, not a loser like kaneki, strong, smart, good looking, nihilistic, perfect!

12 Eto Eto

The only natural one eyed Ghoul

It was always Eto.

Eto is best girl, she's op, and has an interesting character.

One of the important characters

13 Rize Kamishiro Rize Kamishiro

Burn Rize. You caused all of this. All Kaneki wanted was a date. Instead, you made his life a living hell.

Damn, all Ken wanted was to get laid lmao - Not_A_Weeaboo

14 Yomo Renji

Why is Yomo in 12th, he's so underrated

Mr.Yomo is one of the most well made and best characters in the anime/manga even though he seems so forgotten. Seeing his backstory and his past makes you like him even more, knowing that he is so strong, yet even he has moments where you see his emotions show through his stone-like persona. Mr.Yomo is one of the best characters you can have, being powerful and a mentor of sorts to Kaneki in the beginning, also proving himself one of the smartest characters in the show from his battle with Tooru. Maybe there is also going to be a reveal where he is a Kaguja as well in the manga after reading through is past and realizing that he cannibalized. Who knows?

15 Shuu Tsukiyama Shuu Tsukiyama

best boy

He is really funny :D And he always brings you in a good mood ^^


16 Nishio Nishiki

He's like so col and he made me cry at some point and I just love him his so caring and sexy!

Smartest character in the series.

Nishiki is my favorite character! He is such an complex character, and I love his backstory. Nishiki should get more love, and less hate!

17 Takizawa Seidou

He's sweet before he goes all ghoul


18 Kureo Mado

I don't know why everyone hates him, I love him even in though I am in re chapter 130+

19 Tsukiyama Shuu

I love his style (except for eating)

Tsukiyama is bae

He has a really nice personality,like from a gentlemen to crazy

Okay but did u see him in TG;re? Like, so hot I mean... and I simply love his character

20 Nimura Furuta

Furuta is weird and doesn't take anything seriously. He's great

The perfect foil to Kaneki

Complex villian. He is super smart and strong. Loved how he firstly seemed like a regular investigator and he turned to be such an evil villian. He is such a troll.
( normies reee).

21 Noro Noro

Super Regeneration

Most badass character after Ken Kaneki, doesn't care when people attack him, he wipes them off in the blind of an eye.

-Awesome Character, He raises Eto protecting her from V and even after he loses most his mental capacity to them he still remains by Eto's side.Then on top of that he is one of the most powerful ghouls in the series. - scarey2243

Cool kagune
Cool regeneration
Cool Power

22 Kuki Urie

-Love his inner comments plus he's a badass

23 Yakumo Oomori Yakumo Oomori

Can someone please explain to me why someone forgot to put one of the most memorable villains in Tokyo Ghoul on the list? (I haven't watched Tokyo Ghoul yet, though I do plan to watch it in the future.) - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yakumo Oomori or Yamori is extremely unique and memorable! In the first season he is in a way the main villain and has that weird sadistic vibe about him. His rinkaku is also very neat and cool. And after all he is the guy that invented the catchiest thing in Tokyo Ghoul: snapping fingers. He is also a reminder of the famous Jason from Friday the 13th! He even has the mask.

Hey is a hitch for torturing kaneki

No.I'm so glad Kaneki killed him. - DarkBoi-X

24 Yoshimura Yoshimura

He's the one who taught Kaneki that he has a place in the worlds of both humans and ghouls alike.

Why wasn’t he here? - Undistinguished

25 Yukinori Shinohara Yukinori Shinohara

The Banjo of the ccg

Best father figure for suzuya Juuzou

26 Naki
27 Karren Von Rosewald
28 Banjou Kazuichi
29 Tatara Tatara
30 Tooru Mutsuki

love her

31 Kaya Irimi Kaya Irimi
32 Nico

Best gay anime character ever

33 Saiko Yonebaya Saiko Yonebaya

Cutest character in whole anime world

34 Itori Itori
35 Uruka Minami Uruka Minami
36 Ryouko Fueguchi
37 Seidou Takizawa
38 Ukina Ukina
39 Kijima Shiki

Look, I know this guy only popped up in one arc, and only for a few chapters, and he died pretty quickly. But hey, he was extremely memorable because he was one sadistic investigator, but he was still respectful to everybody. The saddest and most memorable part about him, however, was the way he died - laughing about his death as he had his head sawed in half by his own chainsaw-quinque.

40 Nashiro Yasuhisa

She and her sister both are strong and turn to a half ghoul

41 Hetare
42 Kohsuke Hoji

I think he’s beautiful

43 Kousuke Houji

He’s beautiful

The beautiful man really, truly cared for Takizawa and his end was so sad. He’s beautiful and didn’t deserve that.

44 Shachi (Orca)


45 Mutuski
