Top Ten Yandere Characters in Anime

The Top Ten

1 Yuno Gasai - Mirai Nikki Yuno Gasai is the main female protagonist from the anime series "Mirai Nikki" or "Future Diary" published in October 10, 2011. Yuno Gasai is the second dairy owner and is a yandere who kills for Yukki, she owns the Diary of Future Love. She has pink hair tied into two low hanging pigtails with red ribbons. ...read more.

love I Future diary, and I always will. Yuno is my favorite character, and always will be. I love how none of the really good animes have a character with pink hair, because it sounds really weird, but in my opinion, it suits yuno.

I personally prefer Yuno as a yandere queen than anybody else, Yuno was the one who made the Yandere trend after all, she made the brand basically. Not only that she became a Goddess/God, she can basically do whatever she wants in the end.

There's a reason why when we talk about yandere, Yuno is always on top of the list. She is literally the symbol of all yandere character and even up to now, no one has demonstrated the definition of a yandere as far as Yuno did so she's QUEEN.

I think I know why she's at the top of every yandere list: she always knows what Yuki is up to, breaks into his house in one episode, and even chops off a girl's hand when she kissed Yuki in front of her! That girl is crazy

2 Shion Sonozaki - Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

All the characters in this anime is messed up, like seriously not even the main character is normal.. This girl she wins the price through. She hunged two men one with a CHAIN, She stabbed Satoko a couple times (tortured her basically) who was the sister of her lover, killed her own grandma.. the lighter part was just messed up ehh, she locked her sister up..who lost 3 nails because she felt bad over Shion's punishment. She did fell and die but then come back as a ghost and killed Keiichi...and If that's not enough she wanted to torture Rika too, but Rika killed herself in front of her and all she did was laughing. She is even had weird hallucinations of her lover satoshi and he is dead.. She is far more of a yandere than Yuno, to be honest I do believe Yuno is a little overrated.

She should be first. And yes,even if she was affected by the Hinamizawa Syndrome, she was already trying to protect Satoshi and she was the only one in the cast to kill for love, not self-defense or something like that. But my point is, she was smarter than Yuno; she had a plan ( that worked by the way), put the blame on her twin sister and killed those who interfered with her plan. Most importantly she tortured people and was sadistic and even went as far to kill some of her family members and her crush's sister who was a burden for himand killed the village headman basically because he insulted her crush; basically she went on a killing spree because her sister made her remember his disappearance which is the "Yan" side, and she appears as cute and loving, which is the "their" side. So Shion for the win! Sorry for my bad english, it isn't my maternal language.

The arc where she went insane was brutal. She was going to torture Rika to death, but Rika stabbed herself with a knife as Shion laughed and watched. She killed her grandma and whipped her corpse, she stabbed Satoko over 30 times and stabbed her head, she tazed her twin sister Mion at the top of the well and let her fall to her death, she hung the old village leader with a chain, and when she died herself, she came back as a ghost and kileld Keiichi! She was ruthless! better than Yuno

Simply put, Shion is one sadistic Yandere. You can tell she is a Yandere when she still cares for the person she loves has been missing for a year. She will gladly torture and kill anyone who might be associated with his disappearance; hoping that one day, she finds him and returns to his side. And of course, she has the best laugh in all of anime.

3 Ayano Aishi - Yandere Simulator

Yandere-Chan is not from an Anime and neither a fully Yandere, but because of that, she's a great example of a fully psychopathic and obsessive personality. Ayano is fully emotionless and she doesn't love Taro, she's just using him for her benefit, for her to feel alive. She also has a sociopathic behavior towards everyone at school when it comes for her own benefits, but apart from that, Ayano is a fully psychopath with no remorse, no love, no feelings, no other emotions to drive her crazy because she's already crazy herself, and of course no love to stop her from snapping. Obsession over Taro or not, her snapping can move to killing Taro, so that would make her a Yangire. But if we think that from the start, she was never normal, then that doesn't make her a Yangire who just snaps, it makes her a fully psychopath and deadlier than Yanderes, since Yanderes are not psychopaths, just insane over their lovers, exactly why they aren't psychopaths since psychopaths don't feel ...more

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with whoever said she's bland. Yanderedev could have made her an interesting protagonist, but decided to just make her an emotionless, antisocial character with no personality or known interests or hobbies. She's the main character, therefore she should at least have an interesting appearance and personality.

I'd refer her couse she is so so strong and really bad she can be the greatest yandere of all and she can use any weapons she can

Ayano doesn't necessarily need a personality to be a yandere. As long as she has the thirst and ability to kill anyone she deems as a potential rival to her for Senpai's love, she is in fact a yandere. It's in the title.

4 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 ...read more.

I wish I had the power to kill people with invisible arms like Lucy does

From some angles, her horns almost look like cat ears

Lucy is like the cutest one on this list for sure

Lucy has got to be the cutest yandere ever

5 Sekai Saionji - School Days Sekai Saionji (Saionji Sekai) is one of the two main heroines of School Days along with Kotonoha and appear as a secondary character in Summer/Shiny Days and Cross Days

I'm so glad she killed Makoto. He should have died even sooner, though

Am I the only person who always confuses Sekai with Kotonoha?

I feel like Sekai should be higher than Kotonoha

How is Sekai higher than Shion?!

6 Katsura Kotonoha - School Days

She is not the most skilled, But she has been through so much and so desperately tried to win over makoto, went through PLENTY of heartbreaks and other awful stuff that I do not wish to name. I feel like she deserves a better man...

She has been through so much..being with her boyfriend and later finding out that he had been cheating on her. She may not be the most skilled Yandere, But she is the kindest Yandere I’d ever seen.

What I don't understand about Kotonoha and Sekai is: How come they don't become yanderes until the very final episode? I never would have expected Kotonoha of all people to be one, considering how shy and weak she seemed in every other episode.

I feel so bad for poor Kotonoha. She has to put up with cheating, betrayal, and bullies throughout the whole anime. No wonder she becomes so messed up in the later episodes

7 Sukone Tei - UTAU

You are mine all mine len...I don't care if not...a proper vocaloid your ALL MINE!

I love Sukone's hair

Sukone is so kawaii!

Shes veryyy cute

8 Shiro - Deadman Wonderland

Trust me. You don't want to be stuck in a room by yourself with Shiro when she becomes the Wretched Egg. She is hot, though.

Shiro has white eyelashes! I have not seen Deadman Wonderland yet, but is she albino?

She's pretty hot!

9 Shuu Tsukiyama - Tokyo Ghoul

There's not enough male yanderes on the list! Everyone loves the female yanderes, but everyone forgets about the males. Let's try and get Shuu and the other males higher on the list!

I have to admit, Shuu is really hot, especially when he wears that blue suit! That hair of his is awesome, too

There's barley any male yanderes one of my favorite yanderes and favorite tokyo ghoul character ever

I love Shuu! I even have an anime body pillow of him!

10 Kaede Fuyou - Shuffle

Spoilers ahead: What sets Kaede apart from others is the fact she's very sympathetic when it comes to the part where she goes thundering off the rails. After the accident that killed her mom and Rin's parents, she lost all will to live. Her dad refused to face the music and talk to her, and she was not given a psychiatrist to guide her through the troubled time. Rin made up a lie to give her a reason to live. By saying he was at fault for the accident by asking them to come home earlier than planned. Kaede then hated Rin and abused him. Even dropping a blade that sideswiped his eye. Years later from a hidden postcard she learns that they were coming back early since she was sick. This makes her blame herself for the accident and try to atone for actions by being Rin's slave. This becomes her new reason to live. Out of this she develops real romantic feelings and dotes on him out of love and her not being able to forgive her own past actions. When Rin started dating Asa it took Kaede's ...more

Spoiler! :She flips the hell out when that girl comes over (forgot her name)

Kaede will always be the cutest female yandere to me

What's she doing all the way down here?

The Contenders

11 Mizuki Himeji - Baka and Test
12 Toko Fukawa - Danganronpa

She's Genocider Syo, dude!

13 Kurumi Tokisaki - Date A Live

She killed a lot of people and wants to consume the main character lol

Ok 1st of all she is not high in the list because she is not that bad but good either. I love her.

She should seriously be higher on the list

I love Kurumi's eyes

14 Anna Nishikinomiya - Shimoneta

I so want to have sexual intercourse with anna and knock Anna up

I agree with the live nectar guy like fk she wild

very very insane kills literally anyone breathing the same air as Okuma

Love Nectar. enough Said.

15 Ryoko Asakura - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
16 Shouko Kirishima - Baka to Test
17 Mayu - Vocaloid

Mayu is THE CUTEST YANDERE AND VOOCALOID on this liszt. we gotta get her higher, I mean. Also her voice is the cutest, which is very hard to say, cause its, well, VOCALOID.

She may be from an anime but she is a yandere. She is also the first yandere vocaloid.

There's a yandere vocaloid? Cool!

I love Mayu's songs

18 Belarus - Hetalia

I just realized something: Russia is her brother, yet she tries to force him to marry her! What the heck?!

I've only seen Axis Powers, but I hear that Prussia is a yandere, too. Is that true?

That one episode where she tries to force Russia to marry her. Creepy!

Isn't she only in like one Hetalia episode though?

19 Rika Furude - Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

Is she obsessed with a person to the point where she would kill or threaten other people to have that person all to herself? If not, then Rika isn't a yandere. She's a messed up character, but doesn't have any obsession over anyone, so she really shouldn't be on this list.

Look, if you don't think Rika is a yandere, vote for other characters. If you guys keep complaining and commenting about her not being one, that's just gonna give her more votes. Vote for someone else.

Oops. I just realized I mistook her as Rena in one of my earlier comments. However, neither Rena nor Rika is a yandere

I thought yanderes were people who were so obsessed with another person that they would kill to have them to themselves?

20 Juvia Lockser - Fariy Tail Juvia Lockser is a Fairy Tail Mage . When Juvia was young she was abandoned by her parents because she was followed by the rain . Juvia lived in a orphanage but she never felt at home there she was mistreated by the children there because she was different from them,she was a Mage she had blue hair ...read more.

She really is obsessed with Gray that whoever gets near on Gray will be her love rival. Lol but I like her.

If she were a yandere, she would have killed Lucy a long time ago. She's just a wannabe.

Juvia is definitely one of the more mild yandere characters

She hasn't really tried to kill anyone, though.

21 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack On Titan Mikasa Ackerman 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. She accompanies the main protagonist Eren Jaeger. Her most notable feature is the red scarf that she wears. She is one of the most strongest ...read more.

She's not really a yandere. A yandere is someone who is sweet and kind on the outside but bloodthirsty on the inside if fallen in love. While she definitely got violent towards anyone that attempted to go after Eren, she never actually killed anyone that's a threat. And on that note, she isn't even that nice and sweet.

Not a yandere

22 Hitagi Senjougahara - Bakemonogatari Hitagi Senjougahara (戦場ヶ原 ひたぎ, Senjōgahara Hitagi) is a third-year student of Naoetsu Private High School. She is considered to be a frail-looking girl with an "incurable disease" and is distant from others.
23 Ayase Aragaki - Ore no Imouto Ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake Ga Nai

What a long title!

24 Yoosung Kim - Mystic Messenger

SORRY I FREAKED OUT ITS JUST I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH BUT I ALREADY VOTED

25 Yukako Yamagishi - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
