82 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 ;-;

83 Izaya Orihara - Durarara!! Izaya Orihara - Durarara!!

Izaya is one of the coolest anime villains out there. He uses his mind to put people into place and then twists their minds for his own amusement. The best part about him is that he had a perfectly normal childhood, so there's no trauma behind why he is the way he is.

He is just awesome! My favourite character ever! He is the first anime character that I really admired! He has such a cool personality and he always have fun! I really want to be like him.

I love how he doesn't have any excuses for why he's a villain like most others. He's just plain evil. Not to mention he's gorgeous.

He's SO amazing, in my opinion he should be way higher.

84 Zarbon - Dragon Ball Z Zarbon - Dragon Ball Z Zarbon is Frieza's right hand man and highest ranking Commander and General in an army of millions. He is always beside his master and emperor, Lord Frieza, following his orders and carrying out his dirty work alongside his comrade, Dodoria. Zarbon is responsible for advising Frieza on numerous matters, more.

Zarbon is an amazing villain because he had the best fight scene against Vegeta, ruthlessly pummeling him. He also was the Commander General of Frieza's entire army and slaughtered many under his command before meeting a grisly end himself. He has the ability to transform into a reptilian beast and uses his beauty as a clever camouflage for his demonic form. Zarbon is the beauty and the beast personified in one excellent villain and is a very successful plot device for Vegeta's story.

Zarbon has an excellent persona and villainous attitude. He's also got a great design and he's a morally complex character overall when it comes to both his elegant form and his monstrous deadly form. Aside from the fact that he serves Frieza with utmost loyalty, he's also one of the most brutal tacticians and military commanders in the entire universe.

Zarbon was the one member of Frieza's forces who had the most accomplishments and major role and deserves way more credit for toppling Vegeta and suggesting the eradication of the Saiyan race as well as maintaining a level-headed and calm demeanor all the while.

It's great how Zarbon suggested and set up the Saiyan planet to get wiped out by his Master Frieza and continued to serve loyally until the brutal end.

85 Kaori Miyazono - Your Lie in April Kaori Miyazono - Your Lie in April

=( this girl right here is what is helping me with my music she needs to be at least in the top 3 she's funny, talented, a fighter, and an amazing inspirational person to all toughs who play an instrument in life and man do I wish she was a real person so I could meet her in real life.

Most inspirational character in an anime I've ever seen. She inspired me to play music with my heart, and to love every moment of my life...I'll never forget her

Best anime character of all time. First she hated Kousei, and then she was damaging her own health just to play with him again.

R.I.M. (Rest in Music)

86 Zero - Vampire Knight

I just love zero he's awesome and really steals your heart I don't get why yuki doesn't chose him but then then the anime goes on and want to shoot a gun at your phone! But it's still way better then twilight by a long shot I really shouldn't go off topic though so yea. I also like Zero's past it makes you fill bad for him and I love his cool white hair but I like most anime characters with white hair

Zero is such a complicated character; you just have to sympathize with him because of his dark past. He will capture your heart!... And then the end of the anime will then tear your heart out and rip it to a million pieces. :'(

Zero has a very sad past and has been enduring about him being a vampire and will always protect Yuki no matter what. It's touching and awesome to watch this anime!

He's so hot.

87 Kiritsugu Emiya - Fate/Zero Kiritsugu Emiya - Fate/Zero Kiritsugu Emiya is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon and its prequel, Fate/Zero, by Type-Moon and nitroplus. He is only mentioned and seen in flashbacks in Fate/stay Night, but is one of the main protagonists of Fate/Zero.

Finally I found this guy! But why the hell is he so far down the list?! He is super vool and super badass. Even though his tactics and his way of doing things may seem harsh, he bears all the blame and manages to save the everybody, pick up shiro who successes him in the next grail war, but also made the ultimate sacrifice to fulfill his duty and to save his loved ones

Way better than 285. I mean.. Its almost like people are actively averse to a complex and thoughtful main character.

88 Goten - Dragon Ball Goten - Dragon Ball

Actually I like Goku more but he's already distinctively topped every other characters at number 1 so I voted for Goten instead, as he, along with Goku's other son Gohan, are my two 2nd favourite anime character, and it's INJUSTICE to have him placed at #75.

He's the cutest anime characters ever! And he's so talented and strong and powerful and strategic and adorable like his great father Goku.

He so cute in his kid form and so strong, he should at least be in top 50

This site sucks

89 Yukine - Noragami Yukine - Noragami

Yukine is the most developed character in Noragami. He acts like a rebellious teenager, but that's because he's stuck at the age where you most feel like that, because that's the age he died. You feel pity for him, but the development he goes through in the second half of the first season is amazing. (Note: I haven't seen Aragoto, so I don't know if this if fully correct). - Elric-san

Yukine is a boy who was murdered by his own father, so he became a free spirit, waiting to become a regalia. He was taken in by Yato and a bunch if crazy stuff happens

He's annoyingly cute.

He's a blessed vessel.A BLESSED VESSEL! that's how devoted he is and Yaboku(Yato) isn't as strong when he's with Nora or Hiiro or watever you call Yato's previous regalia.also,his two katana form is DOPE.

Yukine > Hiyori

90 Pikachu - Pokemon Pikachu - Pokemon Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Why is Pikachu in 22nd place?! Didn't you all remember at the beginning when Ash got Pikachu? Also do you remember when Pikachu shocked Ash about a million times?!

Pikachu is a mouse but he is a stronger one. He beat a legendary pokemon latios and he always ready for battle and protect and the gang. His first appearance in episode 1 and then he going with ash in every region. Pikachu is ash's NUMBER ONE Pokemon.

Pikachu is so awesome! It's so cute! Not only is he breathtakingly Adoreable, but he's really strong too! Pikachu has gotten Ash through almost every challenge! Pikachu is super loyal and always protects his friends. He's really brave and will do anything to help his friends, and even other people that he just met. Pikachu has come along way since he started his journey with Ash. Plus thunderbolt is super awesome!

91 Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki

She is probably the most understandably insane character in all of anime. Her love is crazy but there is an underlying reason that still exists in all of her decisions that, when truly thought about, can lead to very disturbing conclusions on humanity.

What should I say... She seems to be like the female version of satan, but on the other side, she is so loveable, complex and hellish bad at once. The best bad anime girl ever. I love her ♥

Yuno Gasai - she's the girl who is on the first side the lovely sweet girl and on the other side the psychopathic Girl who Mills everyone in her way. And everyone loves pink hair :3

93 Claire Stanfield - Baccano Claire Stanfield - Baccano

Anyone that's actually watched Baccano knows why this man should be at the absolute top of this list.

He is the awesome-ist train runner

Oh my god, I love him so much, everything from his flirty tendencies to his twisted morals, Vino is just one cool guy.

This guy is twisted in many ways which makes him one of my all time favorites. Damn I just love baccano

94 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

Hm. Itachi is around Number 13, and Gin is at 75. Strange. ~Soro

95 Griffith - Berserk Griffith - Berserk
96 Sweden - Hetalia: Axis Powers

Heh wow Sweden! "Here is my wife"
My friend likes to call me Finland and she calls my crush Sweden and I'm just like "yay! "
But yeah Sweden is random and funny, (like most hetalia characters) and he's pretty hot (also like most hetalia characters) but unlike those characters, he has something about his voice that makes him seem so cool...

Sweden is SO HOT! Too bad he loves Finland... WORK THOSE MUSCLES BABY!


Sweden is absolutely precious...and yet he can easily hold his own. I love all the hetalia characters, but Sweden is so likeable! Go Ikea lord! AND HIS CRUSH ON FINLAND OH MY GOD THEY ARE MARRIED WITH TWO KIDS AND A DOG HOW PERFECT IS THAT ASDFGHJKLAEHBSKM

97 Saito - Rurouni Kenshin
98 Ryuga - Beyblade

He is similar to vegeta but the difference is that Ryuga is stronger than the protagonist. And doesn't fear anything, he puts his life on the line just to be the best. He is my favourite character. - LDragoCis

Beyblade is the best

Finally someone knows beyblade

Beyblade is the best

99 Android 18 - Dragon Ball Android 18 - Dragon Ball

She is a boss. She is the strongest female character in anime history. People think of her as just a cyborg, but she was once human, and is the very best anime character. She is blonde, beautiful, sexy, strong, awesome, and THE BEST ANIME CHARACTER EVER.

She should be higher on the list she is a badass

She can beat everyone on this list. She can kick Sebastian's ass. She can kill grey full buster

100 Shiro - No Game No Life Shiro - No Game No Life

Uniquely kawaii and highly intelligent and successful gamer.

Uniquely Kawaii and high intelligence

Why is she so low? She is so kawaii and smart.
