41 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 Wields The Murasame, The One hit killer, capable of "killing any living being instantly with one single cut." The Murasame is likely the Most powerful imperial arms in the series, (Spoiler ahead, stop reading if you haven't seen the show). Akame activates Murasame's Little War Horn Trump Card to boost her physical abilities so she can kill Esdeath with her weapon destroyed in the process, when Akame...Akame is hands down the female equivalent to saitama. Android 18 for instance is a robot, and we all know the Akame's sword only works on flesh and blood. Even in this case, Akame has faught and destroyed non organics with ease thanks to her mastery of The Murasame. Akame even Bested her own sister Kurome (who wielded the "March of the Dead" Yatsufusa, a katana that turns whomever it kills into zombies that she can summon, she can have 8 at a time) in battle, thus proving she is the ultimate badass anime character easily stacking higher than Erza Scarlet, Morigiana, Boa hancock and ...more

42 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!

This guys the boss.

43 Rintarou Okabe - Steins;Gate

A mad scientist who it enjoyable by constantly making quirky jokes while maintaining a amusing facade of madness. Not only are the surface characteristics enjoyable and amusing, his motives are relatable and thoroughly thought out. The depth of his characterization and the amount of personal development he undergoes though the series easily put him on my top ten list high rankers.

Coolest person with the right touch of madness.

Nobody can beat that laugh

This guy is actually relatable, a mad scientist who discovered that messing with time would destroy life as he knew it. It's quite awesome how you can see his decent into despair and near-madness as he comes to terms with the web he has spun...
His character, while wacky, is so well done that few beat it.

44 Maka Albarn - Soul Eater Maka Albarn - Soul Eater

Maka is the main protagonist of Soul Eater, and is an absolute badass. If you're a 13 year old girl who holds a scythe which is 7 feet long and can still kick ass, you're awesome in my book. Also, she fights only for the greater good, and looks out for others. Her devotion to Soul is sweet, and their relationship is hilarious. While she can get a little annoying at times, she's still a really cool anime character.

I love her too she is so brave and kind.

I love mama, so underrated, great partner for soul - YOUnique253

Watch the first episode. She is a boss defeating Jack the Ripper.

45 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

46 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, more.

Beats up all five kage single handed. enough said

The character who became my favorite character after only 5 minutes of seeing him. He has both Sharingan and Rinnegan. Tsunade<Madara

I like the character, normally I wouldn't like a character that have a bad dialogue but I think that Madara talks with fight,I think that the way he fights playful yet elegant, overpowered but intelligent says more about him that his history. When he talks he seems to be a boring character but when he fights is one of the most charismatic characters I have ever seen.

The strongest

47 Sebastian Michaelis - Black Butler Sebastian Michaelis - Black Butler

He is a DEMON! A mysterious, devilish DEMON!

Hello!? Demon! That just says it all!

He's a sexy ass demon -_- what more do you want from him?

I mean... He is a demon, he is perfect at everything he does...

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 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

Expert swordsman,however I wish I could change close just by the wave of a hand

50 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

51 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

52 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.
53 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

54 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

55 Lelouch Lamprage - Code Geass

Lelouch should be at least top 3 on this list. He is an exceptionally good character. I mean, he is so smart and the way he carries such a great weight on his shoulders is amazing. You just can't predict lelouch's next moves nor can you stop being amazed by it. There are a lot of amazing anime characters out there, but lelouch is just on another level. - WindyHill

very intelligent and unpredictable... handsome... of course.. hehe...

Lelouch. Where to even begin? A brilliant strategist. An awe-inspiring leader. Incredibly determined and devoted to his cause. Lelouch is both an amazing friend and a master of deception and lies. He is melodramatic, charming, and charismatic. He's got the best evil grin and wicked psychotic laugh. He is the murderer of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, becoming the most despised tyrant on the planet, yet he is still the sweetest, most considerate, caring brother in the whole entire world.

Although he is far from perfect, he makes mistakes because he is still human; and he certainly has some screw-ups of massive proportions (season 1, episode 22, anyone? ). However, these flaws only serve to strengthen his character as he becomes all the more relatable, dealing with unbelievable amounts of regret, pain, guilt, and responsibility.

And the ending of Code Geass? Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Exquisite. Indescribably, utterly, completely damn awesome.

ALL HAIL ...more

I can't believe he is so low at the list. He is brave, ambitious, intelligent, good friend, willing to sacrifice, genius strategist, charming... And yet, he is not perfect. That one little ordinary part of him that can't deal with emotions and weight on his shoulders is the part that we all can find in ourselves.

56 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...

Seriously, this created Anime for Americans

57 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

In many ways, Bulma is the most important character in Dragonball, as she is the creator of the dragon radar that everyone depends on, and her other inventions also were vital in the series. It was Bulma who opened her home to the Namekians after their planet got destroyed, and she is the one who turned Vegeta to the good side.

Unfortunately, the series often went out of its way to make Bulma into a bit of a butt monkey, and she wasn't allowed to shine as much as she should have.

58 Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy (born as kaede), is a tragic, 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 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 Johan Liebert - Monster Johan Liebert - Monster

Best Villain anime ever... Because he looks like a real person and all Monsters is a history that could happen in real life...
One of the best anime characters ever...

The antagonist of a series called "Monster"... Enough said.

Charismatic, beautiful, cold, brilliant, and insane.
Really, Johan Liebert is the most frightening anime character ever because he could actually exist.

Johan at number 54! Come on you are kidding me

60 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.

Saitama is not only the best hero ever but he is my hero! He shows us that you don't need to look cool to be a hero! He is powerful and modest. he doesn't take all the credit and he gives himself much less credit or fame than he deserves. He should be everyone's idol! He should be what the world stands for!

The best. enough said.
