Top Ten Anime Characters

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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.

82 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

83 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.

84 Tamaki Suoh - Ouran High School Host Club Tamaki Suoh - Ouran High School Host Club

Love this guy, he just cares for Haruhi so much, and he acts like a father figure to her. It's SO CUTE - Absolite

We love Tamaki but He's more like France from 'Hetalia'. Most of us hates as much as France. He's so ugly but a few of us love him, Making him land on 10th Place.

I think he's hilarious - YOUnique253

He's so charming and caring! (And handsome ♥)

85 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

86 Pikachu - Pokemon

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!

87 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

89 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

90 Griffith - Berserk Griffith - Berserk
91 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

92 Saito - Rurouni Kenshin
93 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

94 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

Violin mommy violin daddy is alexander rybak

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

95 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.

96 Hidan - Naruto Hidan - Naruto

Cool character concept. He breaks the mold of most shinobi because he can survive any injury. LITERALLY ANY! It defies all logic, so he a formidable enemy. But he's an idiot, and he killed a beloved character like Asuma. It was super sad. I still hold a grudge against him for that. Glad Shikamaru blasted him into oblivion.

He can challenge all anime character because he is immortal... Even if anyone did him into pieces, he wouldn't die and pieces of tissues can transform into perfect body, So anyone, Goku, Naruto, Luffy can't beat him... if they release one blood, they'll die surely

10 years bad luck who put him so down!

Every cloud has a silver lining;
Vote Hidan and your luck is shining!

97 Sawamura Eijun - Ace of Diamond

He is so funny... Like him

98 Ash Ketchum - Pokemon Ash Ketchum - Pokemon Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

This is very humiliating that he is on 359. He should be at least top 50.

What is an animal abuser doing on this list? This anime is about some kid making friends with strangers, fighting animals until they pass out, stuffing then in funny red and white

I hate Ash! He sucks! Keeps innocent creatures in tiny sphere-shaped prison cells! Ash is Illuminati CONFIRMED!

Who ever made this is funny (in the good way) illuminati CONFIRMED - Stevenpenguin

I like how no one realizes he is the most well-recognized anime character of all time

99 Marco Bott - Attack on Titan

He's not half the man he used to be...

The freckled Jesus is on this list?! Yay!

He only lived up to half his potential...

I'm 50-50 on whether Marco Bott should be in top 10 or not.

I have half a husbando now...
