who are the 3 best anime characters?

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.

Light Yagami, the protagonist of the dramatic and suspenseful anime Death Note, would go up in smoke in a heartbeat if he took on any of these other anime characters in a straight fight. And I think that huge admiration is justified because of how charming Rem was in the anime. And these days you rarely see anime characters who are confident in themselves and know that they ARE strong and up to the challenge. And this search for human feelings and emotions is what makes Violet Evergarden, one of the best female characters you'll see in anime.

The top 10 characters are here and let me tell you, these guys are too good to be anime characters. Frieza is one of the most scheming, untrustworthy, megalomaniacal villains to ever exist in the world of anime. Sakurajima Mai is an absolute deity when it comes to awesome anime characters, and that can't be beat. He is able to give up everything he has just for the sake of his companions and has one of the most badass personalities in all of anime.

Baki's immense strength is entirely due to the refinement and discipline of his body and fighting technique, making him one of the most formidable martial artists in all of anime. 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. Although, one may fight that L is just another character in the Death Note anime series, I think he is more than that. Saitama is the protagonist of the anime called One Punch Man and has similar personality traits to Shigeo Kageyama.

Add to this his impeccable fashion sense and you have an anime icon who dons the most stylish outfits and shows them off while working his vicious arsenal of kicks. Lelouch is one of my top 5 favourite anime characters because not only is he a ruthless genius, a good brother and a lady-killer, but he is the only character who decided to stand up to oppression - no matter the cost - for the sake of everyone he loves. Spike Spiegel is the protagonist of the legendary Cowboy Bebop series, which changed the anime industry forever. Few anime characters possess the ability to create and destroy reality, and that is what makes Tetsuo one of the strongest characters in the medium.
