Top Ten Anime Characters

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 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

63 Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter Hisoka - Hunter x Hunter

Hisoka is possibly the most interestingly designed character I've ever come across. He starts off as the badass "don't mess with this guy" character, then ends up being not only one of the most powerful, but also sadistic, humorous, and most brilliant in combat.

An amazing combination of story, appearance, voice, and ability. His playing cards from the hunter exam are exceptionally iconic within the series, and nothing beats his strange arrogant yet modest personality.

This guy should've just stayed dead. - Kitkatcut1e

Why is he in number 56?

64 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha - Naruto

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

He has a great smile and is a loyal and brave hunter

He is the strongest in hunter x hunter

He should get a new technique

66 Ryo Bakura - Yu-Gi-Oh!

Bakura is such a great character. He has a good form, a wicked "Yami" form, and a wicked ancient-Egyptian form. Bakura has a most striking appearance with his long pale hair and cute face, and he wields the Millennium Ring. In the English language version, his British accent perfectly fits the polite good Bakura and the classy, crafty Yami Bakura. I just love Bakura, he's an all-time favorite.

Bakura's appeal comes from the fact that he and yami bakura are dead opposites. The yami versions of yugi and marik were similar to the original but not with bakura. The regular bakura is kind and caring, while the yami version plotting and sinister.

Basically the AggressiveBlaze of all anime. The regular Bakura would represent the good side of the Blaze that does good things to help the site, and the Yami Bakura represents the evil trollness of the Blaze who terrorizes the site. - MorbidCannibalSlayer

67 Deidara - Naruto Deidara - Naruto

Deidara is such a great character. I love his elite qualities, cute face, exquisite long blond hair, blue eyes, Akatsuki garb, pleasing voice, saying "hmm", his hot personality, his flying on clay creatures, and his explosive artworks. He's an all-time favorite.

Deidara is the best anime character. That's a fact. I don't understand what he's doing this low. He's like, overly awesome

I can't believe Deidara is 479! He would be ashamed to be behind Sasori, because his art is better. Right?

68 Mephisto Pheles - Blue Exorcist Mephisto Pheles - Blue Exorcist

Mephisto is just the coolest! He's really funny to! Plus he's a demon! Being a demon must be so cool! I just wish he was higher on this list.

He makes pink look badass... What else do I have to say?

He's so funny and a true otaku - Anvil

69 Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail

He is a very caring guy + he's hot

He's a sexy stripping guy. Did I mention stripping?

Gray has a lovely personality. He loves his guild and protects his comrades with everything he's got. He's a very powerful wizard with his amazing ice powers. He acts tough but secretly deals with his own struggles. That's what makes him such a memorable character.

WHY WHY WHY is gray so low on the list! He has a great personality, he's caring, cool, tough, and practically defines the word hot. He's also funny at times, and I would not change a single thing about him, oh yeah and I mention he's hot, and I mean HOT

70 Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki - Bleach Kenpachi Zaraki is a fictional character and an antihero in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.

The most badass character ever! I love him so much!

The best eeveerrr thanks

The most badass guy in Bleach
He fights strong guys for fun
Look at his smile while fighting a strong guy
One of main reasons to watch Bleach

71 Greed - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Greed is so amazing and deserves to be so much higher. Throughout the series he acts very carefree but as you get closer to the end you really see how much it does affect him. Especially that moment when ed tells him he's jealous of humans and he just completely crumbles. Later on you can really see humanity in him and you begin to understand him and actually see a perspective from the evil side. It portrays them as more real than what they once were, which is doing this for father just because. You really do feel bad for him at the end. I can't watch that scene without tearing up

Dude... this hurts my feelings WAAAY too much. I mean, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO HIM?!?! Putting him in 65... The nerve! He's the awesomest character there is! Much better than Goku in my opinion. He's the one who cut ties with his EXTREMELY evil family to fight for the good, though he doesn't admit it. And the time he joined up with Ling's body and became LinGreed/GreedLing/whatever is like, the coolest combination of Yin and Yang. His voice actor is awesome too! And his greed is really just a reason for him to have real friends. So much character depth and his death REALLY made me cry. The best guy EVER.

Greed rocks! Totally badass and one of the most lovable villains like ever!

How is he 62? He is awesome

72 Pain - Naruto

Because 1: he almost starved to death, 2: he released a technique that revives everyone he killed in the village. That's how he died fast

Pain is the great leader for Akatsuki. He's very smart and he's very love his friends, why he must die fast?

Pain 1 dead already but still cool

Pain was the best antagonist in Naruto,the founder of the Akatsuki and the strongest member until his death! Definitely one of the best anime characters ever!

73 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.

74 Ciel Phantomhive - Black Butler Ciel Phantomhive - Black Butler

98th place? This is what I call injustice. Ciel isn't my favourite anime character out of all, but I vote for it hoping a higher place for him. It's hard not to like Ciel. He's very intelligent for his age, and I find his personality alluring. The way he acts all high and mighty like an young noble does, but on his own he struggles. Ciel is charming. He did have a dark past too... Vote this bratty young master up, we all love him.

He is actually my favorite anime character of all time, 94th place how? I don't know any other anime characters who have to take on an estate and own a company after their parents tragically died. He is so adorable and his back story is so sad, I really love his complex character. I honestly think his occasional bratty attitude is very funny. This character has made me laugh, cry, and so much more. Ciel changed my life! I love black butler mainly because of Ciel, so I really think he deserves a lot more than 94, honestly I would put him number one if I had made a list. You go young master!

Ciel deserves a higher spot. We need for characters like him, lets be honest. He is very intelligent for a 13 year old and acts really high and stubborn when with Sebastian. He has a really dark past as well and he struggles on his own which make him kinda cute. He is both dark and innocent at the same time. Vote for Ciel Phantomhive!

Ciel is intelligent and charming, what more can I say ;-;

75 Gin Ichimaru - Bleach Gin Ichimaru - Bleach

I hated Gin until you found out more about him, and then I loved him. So they had to make him die and I started to cry. It was so sad!

He's just perfect. I'm so sad that he died
His death was one of the most heartbreaking deaths ever he should be one of the top 15

I loved him even before his true intention was known. And at that moment I just thougt: I knew it

76 Char - Mobile Suit Gundam

The guy that invented masks on all antagonists.

He is God.

Char is very smart and good fighter

77 Sinon - Sword Art Online Sinon - Sword Art Online Shino Asada is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

Can we get Sinon and the rest of the SAO II cast off this list, thanks - TwilightKitsune

Sinon is absolutely my favorite character, she has such an interesting background

She's my favorite female sao character right now. Of asuna and kirito were to break up well then I would ship him with Sinon love lol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

She needs to be higher

78 Broly - Dragon Ball Z Broly - Dragon Ball Z

Broly, the legendary Saiyan, is a damn truck in the Broly movie. Even though Goku killed him, he was almost unstoppable and is just cool.

He is very strong with a legendary form


Maybe if you considered his character development (though I agree that he overreacted about Goku crying), power, and impact on the franchise, you'd see why people think he's one of the best DBZ villains. - MKBeast

79 Kanade Tachibana - Angel Beats Kanade Tachibana - Angel Beats

Seriously?! This girl is just to cool and badass to be 110! come on people!

Kanade(Angel) is a mystery of wonder and beauty.

80 Kirishima Touka - Tokyo Ghoul

Touka is a boss she definitely doesn't deserve 104th

Deadly character on an amazing show
