Well this top 20 list was VERY HARD to create, as I have multiple male characters I really love and look up too. There also villains in this list, because they look cool or their character is just interesting. Well here it goes; My Top 20 list of favorite male characters:
20. Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)
Yesss I prefer Vegeta over Goku… because he is a better dad haha! No but seriously, I love his saiyan pride and his arrogance, because it’s a different type of arrogance than what you see most of the times in other characters. He knows he is the best and works extremely hard to become even more stronger and surpass Goku. Or like Vegeta would say; KAKAROTTO!!
19. Toru Oikawa (Haikyuu!!)
I love strategic people, but then again, this guy has his idiotic side with him as well. He is smart, hard working and good looking. He knows that and sometimes you would not expect he is an idiot. I love it when people are good looking, but acts like idiots sometimes.
18. Toshiro Hitsugaya (Bleach)
Bleach has a lot of cool characters, but Hitsugaya stands the most out of them. He is small, but is one of the strongest and probably the most loyal. I like how he looks like a child, but acts like a wise adult. His Zanpakto; Hyourinmaru is also one of my favorite. SOUTEN NI ZASE, HYOUUUUURINMAAARUUUU!!!!!
17. Guts (Berserk)
I think everybody would add Guts on the list as one of the coolest character. He is a very cool character and how continues to fight like a beast even when losing his arm and sight on one eye. I have a lot of respect for Guts, because his past is so dark, that it’s too depressing. But again, who doesn’t like Guts swinging with his sword like that.
16. Minato Namikaze (Naruto)
If I had a father like Minato, I would so brag about how amazing my father is. The father of Naruto is one of the strongest character in this series and probably one of the most fastest characters in the world. He is a soft and kind person, but you definitely don’t want to mess with him.
15. Isshiki Satoshi (Shokugeki no Soma)
Now this guy hasn’t show much in the anime YET, but he will show his full potential later. As a manga reader, I saw a moment where he became angry and decide to show his fullpower. He is always so cheerful, but mostly, those cheerful people can be dangerous in some moments. That’s why I like this character even more than Yukihira Soma.
14. Xin/Shin (Kingdom)
Shin is an idiot who has a big ambition, but he is an amazing character when he fights! I see him as a big inspiring hero who will become even more inspiring the older he gets.
13. Kuga Yuma (World Trigger)
Not many people would expect that I would choose a character from World Trigger. I actually enjoyed World Trigger and it was quite different story than most story of Shounen Jump. Kuga Yuma is a 15 year old boy who is actually a laid back kind of guy, but when he doesn’t like something, then he becomes very serious. His moments in World Trigger were amazing and I’m actually sad that the manga is on Hiatus, because I wanted to see more of Kuga Yuma.
12. Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Roy Mustang was always an interesting/funny character, but at a certain scene where he get’s angry, he became my hero! I could feel his anger and the way he acted towards a villain, was different than what most characters would do. Most character would beat them up, but what Mustang that was next level! If you want to know badly, just check the anime!!
11. Android 17 (Dragon Ball Z)
In Dragon Ball Z I really loved the Android arc and loved the twin androids. After it was announced he was going to enter in the Tournament of Power, I was so happy that I could see one of my favorite character again and later on, I became to love this character even more! (I wish I looked handsome like him hahaha)
10. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter X Hunter)
Who doesn’t love Killua… a 14 year old boy who fights like a pro assassin in his mid 20. Well that’s because he is a professional assassin. But that’s not the only thing I like about him. I have this idea that purple is his favorite color, as his clothes are almost always purple. For those who don’t know, my favorite color is purple and I wear almost everyday something purple. Other than that, Killua is a BEAST!
9. Jiroccho (Gintama)
Yess a Gintama character.. what did you expect.. a Top 20 list without a character of Gintama?? Anyways, this guy is only to see in one arc and I love him already so much. He is actually the same as Gintoki, but a serious version of Gintoki. His sword skills are on pair with Gintoki, maybe even better. He is one of those old people guys in anime who are just beast when they fight serious.
8. Utsuro (Gintama)
Utsuro is a dangerous villain and one of the most overpowered character. His sword skills aren’t human and he is also immortal. Can you ask for more?? Yess of course, like a God of Destruction power. In a way he is like a God of Destruction, but he is a calm bastard which makes him quite scary sometimes.
7. Madara Uchiha (Naruto)
One of the most badass villains I’ve seen in anime. It’s not only his strength and his character what makes him cool, but the voice actor makes his voice way to epic. It’s fitting for a leader and for someone who is a villain.
6. Solf J. Kimblee (Fullmetal Alchemist)
If you’ve read my other post, you know why I really like Kimblee. Yes he is a psychopath, but he is different as he is an observer and knows exactly what to say against people. Read my post about Kimblee if you want to know why I like him.
5. Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)
I just leave it this.
4. Hinata Shouyo (Haikyuu!!)
As someone who is not tall (and actually the same height as Hinata) and is super athletic, I can totally relate at being underestimated by my height. It’s quite motivated to see that someone can jump at the same height as those who are taller than him. He is simple minded, but he trust his insticts and those insticts will save the team a lot.
3. Naruto Uzumaki(Naruto)
The person who inspired me that with believing in yourself and with hard work, you can achieve anything. As I told you for those who followed my list, Naruto’s story has inspired me and motivated me in the time when I was depressed. So thats the reason I really like him, also he resembels a lot like me. (Not outwards but inwards haha)
2. Sakata Gintoki (Gintama)
You guys are probably tired me talking about Gintama so I leave it here hahaha. Gintoki at number 2!
1. Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)
And number 1 is my favorite character of all anime, who really really really motivates me to follow my dreams no matter what! Luffy cares about his crewmates and even though he is stupid, his crewmates still trust him that everything will be alright. I also like his rebelious side, to save one of his friends, even though it is too dangerous. He doesn’t care.. He only cares about his crewmates, food and friends. Luffy will definitely become the Pirate King one day.
Tomorrow I will do a Top 20 Opening/Ending list!
Thanks for reading 🙂
