2 Touka Kirishima Touka Kirishima

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!

OH MY GOSH, I love her! Oof.

3 Suzuya Juuzou Suzuya Juuzou

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!

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

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 loved him and his story. Psycho but cute but psycho

5 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.

My 2nd favorite after Touka. It would have been nice to have seen more of him. He's a very cool, strong, and interesting character.

6 Amon Koutarou

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.

7 Juuzou Suzuya Juuzou Suzuya

The most cool nutcase ever!

8 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.

9 Ayato Kirishima Ayato Kirishima

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.

Why. Is. He Number 10!

10 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?

The Newcomers

? 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.

The Contenders

11 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.

12 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.

13 Tsukiyama Shuu

I love his style (except for eating)

Tsukiyama is bae

17 Kureo Mado
18 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!

19 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
