The Top Ten Tokyo Ghoul Characters

1 Kaneki Ken

He's a great character. He shows heart in the story. The transformations with his kagune is awesome. He by far, is number 1.

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!

2 Suzuya Juuzou

it's amazing how much action he brings in the story! I mean, would anybody besides him be as laid back in a life or death situation?

Juzo makes story is epic, tragic, and ultimately futile I LOVE IT

This man goes hard when he fights. So weird calling him a "man" because I thought he was a girl.

Juuzou is the best!
He looks like a cinnamon roll but is a total badass and one of CCG's best fighters.
I stand by the crazy one!

3 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

I love this character for her personality her looks and even her fight scenes. This is why she's my first and only waifu

She made me a lesbian

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.

4 Hideyoshi Nagachika

I think most of us can relate to Hide, since he's the most level headed character in the series

Can we get a moment of silence for hideyoshi
Ok moment of silence finished
He is my favorite

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

5 Hinami Fueguchi

She is the cutest character here >u< I honestly wish she killed mr mono

Hinami And Touka spend through a lot together since Tokyo ghoul and Tokyo ghoul re. Touka wanted to save Hinami from death sentence from ccg and risk her life to do so.

She looks so cute - TwilightKitsune

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

6 Ayato Kirishima

he might be a major antagonist but for some reason I feel like there's more to his story than what we know

My favorite over all and I find him funny

He's badass and hot asf. He's way too powerful to be 6th -.-

Touka's younger brother.

7 Juuzou Suzuya

The most cool nutcase ever!

He's so good he's twice on the top ten lol

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

he is just like me at times.

8 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.

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

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.

9 Akira Mado

Beautiful and hot and sexy and cool and badass...shes one of the best girls I have seen in anime world

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.

Best girl yalll

10 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.

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

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

Uta is love, Uta is life.

The Contenders

11 Shuu Tsukiyama

He's so awesome


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


12 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.

Cool kagune
Cool regeneration
Cool Power

-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

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

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

What the hell. He can easily beat ken

The only person who could beat him was himself.

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

14 Itori

I LOVE HER - hcraw17

15 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

16 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

Best character ever!

17 Yomo Renji

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

Most underrated character

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?

18 Takizawa Seidou

He's sweet before he goes all ghoul

He of juzo after he's tortured, but still not as cool.



19 Nishio Nishiki

Nishio is literally the definition of perfect. When he came back in :re all badass I was squealing.

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!

20 Kureo Mado

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

Best boi

21 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).

He is funny

22 Tsukiyama Shuu

I love his style (except for eating)

Tsukiyama is bae

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


23 Kuki Urie

-Love his inner comments plus he's a badass

24 Squidward

He's beautiful.


I'm wet

A a jbsbj

25 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

26 Yukinori Shinohara

Best father figure for suzuya Juuzou

The Banjo of the ccg

27 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

28 Karren Von Rosewald
29 Nico

Best gay anime character ever


30 Saiko Yonebaya

Cutest character in whole anime world

she is the funniest SS rated investigator


31 Tatara

very cool

32 Seidou Takizawa

When he turned into a ghoul he was so cool and badass

33 Naki
34 Banjou Kazuichi
35 Tooru Mutsuki

love her

36 Kaya Irimi
37 Nashiro Yasuhisa

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

Loving sister

38 Kurona Yasuhisa

The doctor is responsible for making her like that!
She does NOT deserve to suffer. She loves her sister (twin) much and does everything to ´keep her alive´.

39 Uruka Minami

Like her kagune

40 Ukina
41 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.

42 Hetare
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


46 Melonsheep
47 Ryouko Fueguchi
48 Kohsuke Hoji

I think he’s beautiful
