Who are the best anime characters ever? This list includes the top manga favourites, possibly of all time. These are the classics, the most beloved characters, including anime and manga protagonists such as Son Goku, the fictional protagonist of the Dragon Ball manga series, and L, the fictional detective from the Death Note manga series. Be sure to vote for your favourites, add any characters you might be missing and, of course, re-rank this list of the best anime characters in any order you like. Even without his powers, All Might still commands attention.
He's a great teacher and role model for young Midoriya and the rest of Class 1-A. When he was at his peak of superhero strength, All Might managed to save the day in the most epic of ways. Seeing his ferocious set of fist-pumping moves in action is always a great moment. All Might is the epitome of power and the kind of character everyone should aspire to be in their real life.
He has destroyed numerous realities for his own amusement and plays with galaxies like marbles. There is no way to stand up to this god and only one other anime character has a chance of beating him in a fight. She is kind but strict, sympathetic but sassy, and she is the one who will break the boundary between anime characters and real people because of her surreal personality. When Kaneki Ken first came to anime and manga, fans went crazy for how bloody and tense the storytelling was.
It's sweet, cute and clever, a mix that many anime fans can't help but appreciate more than anything else. Spike Spiegel is the protagonist of the legendary Cowboy Bebop series, which changed the anime industry forever. In case you don't know, Gintoki is the protagonist of Gintama, a series that is known as the best by millions of anime fans. These details lead me to believe that L is one of the best anime characters there is in the anime world.
Everyone's favourite big mouth ninja, Naruto, can take on almost any other anime character. Saitama is the protagonist of the anime called One Punch Man and has similar personality traits to Shigeo Kageyama. He never gives up on his friends, and is also one of the funniest and most straightforward characters in anime. Gintama alone is a series known as the king of anime comedy, infamous for its surreal humour, lovable characters and an insurmountable amount of pop culture references that even put Family Guy to shame.
With the growing popularity of Western anime series and the development of new fictional mythologies, there are always more heroes and villains coming to the screen. Going back to the glory days of that high school lunchroom, this list will decide who really is the coolest of the cool, as it runs through the Top 10 most popular characters in anime history (as voted by the My Anime List community at the time of writing). And not all of the great anime characters on this list are among the so-called "good guys", but some are also among the worst and most notorious anime villains. However, unlike other anime characters, Erza can enhance her abilities with the help of magic.
Let me get this straight, being part of the "Big 3" is no joke, especially in this day and age when anime is more popular than ever.
