The Contenders: Page 2

21 Alucard Alucard

Alucard is by far the coolest manga character I've ever watched on an anime serie (Hellsing ultimate OVA) : great voice acting, great style, great powers, great personnality... Just pure awesomeness!

Alucard kicks all ass (plus its Dracula spelt backwards) - Rando

This guy scares Chuck Norris. Also why isn't he in the top 10? He is so awesome!

Badass, powerful, stylish, crazy, scary... This guy should be the reference for vampires everywhere.

22 Hei - Darker Than Black

Hei's pretty epic.
I don't want to say too much, just go read darker than black; his type of personality is only good when the story reveals it.

And his name means black in Chinese

If you have seen even a slight bit of this anime, you just cannot but love this character. - Undistinguished

23 Himura Kenshin - Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin Himura Kenshin - Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin Himura Kenshin, known as Kenshin Himura in the English-language anime dubs, is a fictional character and protagonist of the Rurouni Kenshin manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

The most human and relate-able character ever. His life and personality make him the most understood character I've ever seen. Everybody has things they wish they had never done and regrets they try to make up for in every day life. I think that's what makes Kenshin Himura such a powerful character. I mean he spends his youth in a war he somewhat believes in, but he realizes once the war is over all the death and chaos he created. He tries to atone for what he's done by not killing again, no matter who the person is but things unfold that constantly make him brake his vow. However no matter what happens he always tries to protect the ones he cares for without causing his opponents death. He is a LEGEND.

A peace-loving, humble, soft-spoken gentleman who is the most feared and strongest man. A legend who made revolution possible. He saved thousands of life by killing hundreds then he regrets about the lives he has taken even in a war. He showed the truth by risking his life to every single bad guy to save their life.
After saving thousands of life; as a living legend he is still washing dishes and clothes preparing meals and playing with kids. What a personality.
How he could love and protect these people who are already owe him so much.
%99.9999 percent of men would expect worship unlike Kenshin does

Kenshin is an excellent and interesting character with a dark and tragic past. At first when he appears, he is an almost perfect character but his past catches up with and he learns valuable life lessons through these experiences and he always wins the battle with it and the ultimate and ancient teachings of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu. The story of Rurouni Kenshin is an enthralling experience!

The best anime I have ever seen

24 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.

This character was funny, strong, and inspirational. His innovative thinking leads many characters within the anime to stand up for themselves and what they believe in. No matter what he stands up against he remains unafraid and confident and never backs down.

This guy. His seemingly nonsense and irrelevant quotes really hit you deep. Hard to explain.

Best bro. He teaches every man how to live!

Just who the hell do you think he is? KAMIMA THE GREAT. This is the first anime character to bring tears to my eyes with his raw inspiring talent. Whenever I face something hard in life that seems impossible to overcome, I do what Kamima would do

25 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.

From a former villain to one of the key members of the Z fighters, Picollo has been a mentor, a father figure to one of the major characters, not to mention sharing his fate with the title objects of the series. Piccolo have dedicated himself to the forces of good through his fist and wits. Only if the series gave more spaces for other characters like him, he could been much more higher on the list.

More brainy than brawny. Former villian changed into a key Z fighter, a mentor, a father figure, and definitely sharing his fate with the title of the series.

26 Portagas D. Ace - One Piece

Ace IS one of my favorite anime charcters ever.

He is selfless, passionate. And loyal. One of the biggest proofs is the way he died, he died fighting for Whitebeard's honor, he died protecting he's little brother, he died thanking people for "loving someone as useless as him", He died smiling.

And That is why Portages.D. ace is one of the best anime charcters EVER!

Awesome. No further explanation needed.

He is the son of the pirate's king: Gol D. Roger! He is the adopted son of Whitebeard and the captain of his second fleet, he have an extraordinary power, it's cool and very strong, his death was very dramatic and sad..

Seriously, he treated luffy like trash when they first met, how can anyone like him? Although I admit he did save luffy.

27 Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho

"Makes you fall in love with the anime with all the action, humor, friendship, and tear filled moments. "

Me and my brother love this show! They only know 9 anime and I know 234 anime! - fruitsbasketcrazy123

The best fighter out there and human no less

Gets stronger day by day

28 Bulma - Dragon Ball Z Bulma - Dragon Ball Z 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.

How is bulma even low than misa amane. She is aewsome and genius who built dragon radar and laser gun at age of five. And she is the one who melted the heart of the tough guy Vegeta.

She's one of the most important characters in the DB series. If it's not present Bulma doing something to save the world, it's her future self (Mirai Bulma) doing something to save the world.

29 Deidara - Naruto Deidara - Naruto

Best character ever to me, yet so underrated! He deserves more love!

Deidara is such a great character. He has a most pleasing appearance with his long blond hair and cute face, a habit of saying 'hmm', and a fun and free personality. Deidara is an artist who creates clay creatures, used for flight and explosives, and he's a member of the fascinating Akatsuki. I really love Deidara, he's an all-time favorite.

My favorite Akatsuki member is Sasori, but Deidara is cool too. Actually, they're all cool in their own way. It just stinks that he's evil. Why do the best characters always have to be bad?

He's the best

31 Ryuk - Death Note Ryuk - Death Note Ryuk is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Simply just funny, scary looking but really weird and funny once have seen him "in action". Such an apple lover.

Sarcastic. Funny. Apples. Best shinigami ever

He is crazy and, might I say, obsessed with apples. You can't help but like him

32 Sanji - One Piece Sanji - One Piece Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

A complex character with a cool design, cool fighting style, a strong and interesting personality, kind and selfless... what else do you need? If a character can make you cry, laugh, rage and scream with excitement depending on the moment, then you know you have a top notch character right there, and Sanji is definitely one of those great characters.

His kick is awesome

Are you kidding me! I Love this Guy! He diserv to be in the top 20!

Sanjji is the coolest character in One piece.He is always there when someone is in trouble.He is strong,funny and has a kind heart.

33 Oga Tatasumi - Beelzebub

Child Rearing Badass for the win

Come on oga is number 53!? He should be in the top 10.

When your butt gets kicked by a man who carries a naked baby, well that's serious

He got dumped with the Devils kid how cooler can he get

34 Pain - Naruto

How can we all frgt him just great invasion of pain was best arc of manga

How is he not further up the list? Posessed the Rinnegan, killed jiraiya, killed Kakashi no worries, can send you flying just by looking at you, blew up konoha in an instant (although admittedly, that took a lot of effort). Just looking at him, you can tell he is a badass.
"We are Pain. We are God. "

35 Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster a fairytail wizard is a kind sensitive person which can be mainly found in underwear or fighting a guildmate / friend brother Natsu Dragneel (which I am supersede dint make this list) anyway Gray has a habit of stripping which he found while training with his now unfortunately dead master more.

Come ON. I am sure that he is a man with skill and looks. What more do you want? If not the top, he surely deserves to be in the top ten. He is surely better than most of his teammates. He ROCKS!

Handsome, nice body, great skills, despite of his habit. But that's what makes people like him, right?

Gray Fullbuster, being the handsome and tactical man, DESERVES to be at the top of the list. He has touched and froze hard throughout the entire series and chapters. Let him on the list!

Intelligent, strong, definitely top ten material. - RebeccaDarking

36 Hibari Kyouya - Katekyou Hitman Reborn

I love the way he says "I'll bite you to death." And that line of his isn't just for show, he really does it, figuratively, of course. He's ready to take on any battles that come his way, and also the ones that don't. He's so strong, I bet he's the strongest in the whole manga and anime. I love the way he carries his pride, the way he's brave, the way he's intelligent, the way everyone fears him, the way he looks. I go all dreamy eyed when he comes. After all, I'm a girl!

His Cold attitude makes me crazy...
"I'll bite you to death"...
I love his that line of his...
So cool...

He's aloof, strong, handsome, mysterious and intelligent... The typical Bishounen.
But what makes him amazing is skills and catchphrase 'I'll bite you to death! " (that line will always make the girls swoon, because of how wrong it sounds)

D coolest ever! I will bite you to death! He's so handsome!

37 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.

A bald guy in yellow suit, red gloves, red boots and white cape that can still look badass, killing creatures with one punch that is not even a serious one... Add some funny faces and actions and we have an awesome character.

He is strong and poor, a hilarious combination

He's bald and he kills with just one punch! What's not to like?

He literally kills any enemy with just one punch.

38 Kazuma Yagami - Kaze No Stigma

Kazuma is really awesome. He's so laid back and has lots of fun getting in Ayano's face and making her look like an idiot. He is so "Like a Boss" with his contracter wind powers. He has a very distinct personality, which I think is something every main character should have (Most of my favourite characters do, inculding Edward Elric, Light Yagami, Mato, etc. ) and I love the way he will just do whatever it takes to get on Ayano's nerves. But yet he can still work with her. He is a character that you just have to like and he is what makes Kaze No Stigma an anime that should be on everyones watch list.

39 Kakashi Sensei - Naruto

I am shocked to see hatake kakashi this low. Although I agree in most of the top 10, but to see Rukia and Roronoa Zoro ahead of Kakashi is absurd. Come on guys, seriously? Let's put it this way, if we're in a ninja world, and you're about to be a ninja for any country. You gotta hope that you'll be like the Leaf's genius Hatake Kakashi, or aspire to be half as good as him. He's the standard of a very good shinobi, very smart, cunning and a superior user of all jutsu types! That's how great he is. Though he has an average chakra levels, his intellegence and battle prowess makes up for it, because he doesn't need to fight long to finish his opponents.

Kakashi has the Best Style, But I really can't understand, that there is no character from ONE PIECE! Its Like Big Joke!

Schan awesom character. My favourite.
