Top Ten Anime Characters

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Sasuke is a character in Naruto series that stands out from the rest. Itachi, Kakashi, Naruto and Sasuke made me completely immersed in the anime. He's the coolest antagonist in anime, has a solid storyline and unlike many others, his actions are dictated by his understanding of everything around him and what he'd gone through. His abilities haven't been exaggerated, and his enduring contrast with Naruto, and relatable experiences with Gaara, Obito and Kakashi are interesting. But, his quest for vengeance and Itachi's story make his character so intriguing, and yet when you think you understand him, you don't. I really admire Uchiha Sasuke and what he has gone through, after being presented a distorted history and subjected to seclusion, envy and pain.

The absolute most awesome character ever. Sasuke Uchiha is the troubled and misguided boy that loses his way sometimes in search of power to beat his brother, but is good on the inside. - jozmichelle

Sasuke Uchiha is the best andmost dynamic character on Naruto. He is the only character with a true reason to be driven and focused on his goal. He is the star of the show with his striking appearance and stranger quality. You never know what you'll get from Sasuke.

HOW IS HE #36? Let's make him higher. He is the main reason I got into anime in the first place. He got my teen heart beating faster, faster. *cough cough Panic! reference*

42 Roy Mustang - FullMetal Alchemist Roy Mustang - FullMetal Alchemist Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Have you seen this guy? The flame alchemist was amazing! Watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and witness the savagery that was his fight against Lust and later, Envy. A strong, but intelligent and sometimes funny character as well. Loved Mustang

Flame alchemist, Roy ' Mustang. He may not look like much but he's just as badass as those on top the list. Without him the elric brothers would've failed to reach their goal not to mention, this guy totally kicks ass.

He was so awesome. His need to revenge for his friend... Oh god. So much passion. Well, he was a lady's man, and a little messed up in the end, and got easily angry, but these are the reasons he was so special

He's the ultimate badass of anime. (GOKU IS OVERRATED AS ****! )

43 Bulma - Dragon Ball Bulma - Dragon Ball Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.

Bulma is one of the most important DBZ characters, right below Vegeta and Goku. Dragonball series are made for guys so the female characters don't get equal treatment as the dudes do but Bulma gets treated the best out of all of them (even more than some of even the male characters) because she's the brain of the show. She's the beautiful genius that the heros can count on, the supportive wife Vegeta can depend on, and loving mom of Trunks.

Bulma is a very original character and she is propably one of the first female anime characters she is also very rich and has big boobs

Deserves higher and where is Android 18

44 Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan Annie Leonhart is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

ANNIE IS COOL! She may be the main enemy and (SPOILER! ) the female Titan who killed a lot of people, she seems to have a purpose. I ship her and Eren! (I know that's not a very good ship but honestly I don't care)

Annie has an amazing brain and great skill for fight!

Annie is excellent character in all parts she plays in

I ship her and even more than any other ship ever and I will go down with the ship

45 Gohan - Dragon Ball Gohan - Dragon Ball Son Gohan is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Gohan is introduced as the first son of the protagonist Goku, and his wife Chi-Chi, in chapter #196 Kakarrot, first published in Weekly Sh┼Źnen Jump magazine on October 24, 1988. Chi-Chi is a strict and protective more.

He was so strong but chi chi ruined him. He was just like his dad who cares about people and I love how much Goku and gohan love each other. How gohan blew up cell when his father was dead. I love it. The attack that blew up cell was basically a combined attack from Goku and gohan. I love their relationship. Such a good father Goku was and how much gohan loved his father and gohan was the one who realized how great his father really is. Unlike chi chi who was never good to Goku. Goku deserved a good and obedient wife. ( Don't get me wrong I am a girl). I

He went from a pampered crybaby to a powerful warrior who was capable of destroying multiple planets with one finger and When he fought Cell, Gohan beat him up so badly that Cell called him the monster. Lastly, He has a death glare that literally showed how pissed he was, that was a statement that nobody should cross him or else he will give them a slow but painful death.

When he fought Cell, he beat him to glue. His dad could not beat him, and has an awesome Super Saiyan 2 theme.

He's gnarly and it's funny how in dbz super goten is stronges and he's a superhero. - EliHbk

46 Akame - Akame ga Kill Akame - Akame ga Kill

This chick is just amazing! But why the hell is she so far down this stupid list!? Come on people! Anyways she has a cool and collected personality and also a total glutton but most of the spotlight was focused at tatsumi during most of the show. But nonetheless she's the most badass and most powerful in all of night raid. She had to carry the burden of killing her sister rather than getting killed by someone else and also she carries the burden of all the people she's killed as she continues her life of a never ending struggle of kill or be killed

She is great! #1female hero!

YES I love akame ga kill and especially Akame

Akame is My second favorite feamel

47 Alucard - Hellsing Ultimate Alucard - Hellsing Ultimate

Alucard spelt backwards is dracula, a supernatural being from legend, and this character is Legendary. He is OP, cool, quite mad and evil, and just unstoppable. Conclusion. He redefines the word, Badass!

The most badass vampire he the world. He beats everyone. And anyone he does not deem as a worthy opponent, he calls dog food. He's awesome. He should e WAY higher up on the list!

48 Alucard Hellsing Alucard Hellsing

I would like to see EVERYONE on this list get into a giant battle, and watch alucard eat everyone and send them to hell - Rando

He could beat Ichigo, Naruto, Goku, Gara and any other characters that you could think of. He just does what he wants. He can't seem to die. He is really funny too.

Alucard is also my take, been waiting to read this. As much as I like others alucard is just effortlessly overwhelming strong, even more so with the power he acquired at the end of the manga...

This guy should be in the top tens. I mean he may not be the most powerful anime character but I'd say he is the most unkillable anime character. Also being a monster on top of that. What I like is how he fights he let's his enemies blow him apart thinking they won then regenerating making a fool of his enemy then BAM! with his Jackal your dead.

49 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

Mikasa is cool, badass, and totally great!

38th really? Mikasa is one of the most badass females in anime. She could destroy characters like Yuuki Asuna, Eren Jaeger, Gasai Yuno, and a bunch others. She would definitely hold her own against other badasses such as Levi Ackerman, Naruto, Edward Elric, and Kirito. She deserves top 5

Mikasa has everything that makes a good character: A tragic past, badass fighting skills, etc.

I love Mikasa! She's cool, badass, yet caring and emotional when it comes to people she loves. - Absolite

50 Asuna - Sword Art Online Asuna - Sword Art Online

Although Mikasa may beat Asuna in badassery, Asuna actually shows personality in the show. Not only does she care for Kirito, but also to Yui, Kirito's friends, and most importantly, Yuuki Konno. Asuna can be happy, sad, angry, and have her own personality of her own. May not have as much muscle power as Mikasa, but Asuna definitely is prevalent in personality. It was so touching how she interacted with Yuuki from the beginning to the end of the Mother's Rosario arc. Asuna definitely deserves the love for not just her love for her friends, Kirito, Yui, and Yuuki, but the struggles she faces and how she manages to still live on despite how hard they are.

Oh shut up haters! Asuna is one of my favorite female SAO characters from Sword Art Online. She shows both sides of women as being strong and independent and kind and sensitive. If you don't like her, vote for someone else instead! Thank you! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She's not as bad as most people say. She's not perfect (and I'm not referring to the Mary Sue archetype), but she is actually a pretty good character on her own. She especially shined the best in Mother's Rosario. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Asuna should be in 2 place

51 Piccolo - Dragon Ball Z Piccolo - Dragon Ball Z 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.

That green alien was somethin' of all other characters... I remember him as good one. - requi-lml

Piccolo has the best character development in the whole series. He was going all the way from a megalomanic and veangeful yet tragic villain to an extremly laidback, kind-hearted, helpful and all-around good guy. He never stresses, always protects those who are important to him and is also a badass fighter. What more can you ask for? Even the creator of Dragon Ball, Akira Toriyama has him as his favourite character.

Goku owes piccolo one

I like how he was a villain in DB but then turn to a hero in DBZ. I love his shoulder pads. I cried when he was killed by napa

52 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want more.

Erza had quite a tragic past and with all that it's made her strong, caring even scary and one of the best fighters in fairy tail.

Who can defeat 100 very powerful monsters? ERZA SCARLET can! She is easily the most powerful female mage in Fairy Tail who can beat Gray Fullbuster and Natsu Dragneel. Just saying

My beloved female and inspiration. Yeah girls should focus more on self defense and other things instead of beauty and naked guys etc. Girls are strong they can rock but they don't rock. I am a dbz fan girl angry because my classmates girls don't like dbz and beyblade etc

She is the best character and is a warrior too! She is so badass I love that about her

53 Vash the Stampede - Trigun Vash the Stampede - Trigun Vash the Stampede, also simply referred as Vash, is the main protagonist and the titular character of Trigun, an anime and manga series created by Yasuhiro Nightow.

Spike is probably a better character than he is, but I still like Vash. Yes, he cries a bit too much and he can be too much of a pacifist, but despite some of his annoying moments, I still like him. He is my husbando like Spike. He's funny, he can be tough and stand up to people. He is also very compassionate and sensitive. - Pinkarray

He is actually deeper than most people think him to be, also Doughnuts and Love and Peace. He is a walking contradiction

Someone who is both funny and a badass.

This guys a giant goofball! But he comes from a very dark past that explains his actions (trying to save everybody) anf oulook towards life and bears the scars of it. He can go from idiot to manslayer really fast then back to an idiot instantly

54 Soul Eater Evans (Soul Eater) Soul Eater Evans (Soul Eater)

I love this guy. He's cool, laid back and FUNNY! I just like it whenever he acts funny especially what he says funny stuff like when he said something like "Any one wants this sexy kitten? She's free" when I first heard him say that I was shocked and cracked up laughing. He's one of the most popular characters in soul eater. He would be more higher with death the kid but 55? Not cool

I love his part in the show, and how laid back he is. He cares about his friends and seems loyal does not deserve to be number 54. He should at least be near death the kid.

He is an awesome character he seems like a lazy idiot but on the inside he cares

55 Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Frieza - Dragon Ball Z Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is more.
56 Saitama - One Punch Man Saitama - One Punch Man Saitama is the main protagonist of the webcomic and anime series One Punch Man, who could easily destroy a continent with one punch. He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.

He's so strong that even him doesn't know he can wipe out the entire universe with a punch.

A guy so strong that not even he knows just how strong he is and probably never will because no one else is strong enough to let him test his true power on.

Awesome. Nothing else needs to be said.

If you guys have seen the whole first season, imagine him doing consecutive serious punches - IEatPotatoes

57 Kamina - Gurren Lagann Kamina - Gurren Lagann Kamina is a fictional character in the anime series Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

He is the reason the humans even civilized and defeated the anti-spirals. He is the reason Simon became a man by being the best damn manly harass I have ever seen. He fights even while seconds away from death, and deserves more respect. - NatsumrHyuuga2

There is only one way to describe him. MANLY! He may be lacking in brains and everything short of fighting spirit but with his determination and unrivalled manliness he manages to become a beacon of what it truly means to "live life to the fullest"

Kamina meant to be 1st. He lived fought and died for his dreams and even in death inspired the rest of the cast

58 Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy (born as kaede), is a fictional Japanese Anti-Heroine, and Anti-Villianess, who is the main protagonist of her debut source, a manga officially known as Elfen Lied [alfen leed], written and illustrated by Lynn Okamoto, which was best known for it's T.V. adaptation of the same name, Directed by more.

I love this character because she really isn't an evil maniac. Even though it may seem that way. She is what she is because of people around her trying to kill her! I also love her because she shows that people can change even though being a merciless killer she proved that she still cared and loved her friends.

Kaede (Lucy/Nyu's true name) is the best character of all time. She is an anti-hero and a pretty damn sympathetic one at that. Especially if you read the manga. You must read the manga, the story is one the best out there. It's tied for number one along with Fruits Basket for the emotional impact it has. Kaede is probably also one of the most OPed characters out there. I want to see her and Alucard do battle, laugh out loud.

Ok I cannot believe no one has put her up yet. She's my favourite because she has that awesome spilt personality thing going on one side being all cute and lost memory and the other being a psychopathic nutter who just kills anyone in her way. Nastily E.G. ripping your arms and legs off one by one while you scream for mercy :3. My final point is that... She has pink hair :D everyone loves pink hair in anime - A_Lethal_Llama

I just love this anime so much and Lucy is such a complex character

59 Usagi Tsukino - Sailor Moon Usagi Tsukino - Sailor Moon

Face it. Any girl can relate to Usagi. She's probably one of the most genuine characters. She is all anime fangirls' hero. She cries, she hurts herself, she doesn't want to do her job. We can all think of a time when we were like that too, right? Yet, she still manages to save the day. She also is represent that women can do it too. Sure, Naruto or Edward May be awesome heroes, but sailor moon really represents girls's feelings. Plus her outfit is awesome, and who can't love her dumpling hair!? :3

The main character from Sailor Moon. Really cute girl. One of the longest running anime series in the world. She is a teenage girl who under goes much heartbreak, adventure, danger, and sacrafice as she is a major hero named Sailor Moon. All the while having fun as Usagi/Serena Tsukino, the normal teenager she was before she discovered she was Sailor Moon. I just love her and this anime show!

I love sailor moon, especially usagi. I get sometimes pissed when she cries, but I really think she deserved to be the main protagonist of the series. I think there is nothing wrong about her, just I think that she is way too clumsy...

She is so funny and clumsy she should really be higher on this list

60 Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I love Hinata. She is the most sweets and the most caring out of all Naruto characters. She is the first girl to realized how Naruto struggled and nobody loves him except hinata. She was there for him and even she jumped out when pein tries to take him away. That how much she cares and loves him. I don't want to mean but Sakura just stand there and let it happen. After that she confessed to him that she loves him that was truly stupid and I laughed when Naruto reject her. I know that she is trying to stop Naruto for chasing after sasuke. She could have come up with another plan than that. Hinata on other hand tells the truth. Sakura is alright an all but she needs to back off. She knows hinata loves him and why she confessed all the sudden is she jealous? That's why I am Hinata supporter and NaruHina supporter NaruHina will happen if not I will throw my computer out the window

Shes the best shy cute and strong what more can you ask for and way more caring than sakura will ever be

She's not the main character and she has had the most development out of the Konoha group. She isn't as strong as most characters however she still risked her life to keep Naruto Alive twice! Which shows that she is a respectable ninja and a lover!

She Is the best
