It's a well-known fact that Anime is not always about the quality of the writing or animation. It brings fans of any age back to the wild tribalism of their childhood. Anime as a medium of entertainment is a lot more diverse in terms of the features it offers to its viewers.

But what makes the anime famous? It's their characters. There are a lot of badass anime characters that we all look up to and many fans also love these characters. So today we would be creating a list of all the badass anime characters we can't get over with.

15. Guts from berserk

Guts is a definition of toughness. Also known as Black Swordsman is the man who had all the necessary powers and badass attitude he needed to survive and protect others. There was great trouble that crossed his path when he was a child and continued to stay with him till his adolescence.

However, all these troubles didn't have any negative impact on him. It only helped him to improve his badass character day by day. The only badass thing about Guts was his aggressiveness in his light brown eyes which created the real rigidity in his way of fighting.

We saw in the anime that he grew unforgiving with every passing day and the only purpose was to kill everyone who comes in his way. The lack of social relationships because of the fear of attachment is truly one of his signature characteristics of him.

14. Erza Scarlet From Fairy Tail

Is there even anyone who is not aware of this anime? Like seriously there would not be a single anime lover who is not known to the story of this anime. Erza Scarlet is one of the real examples of becoming a valuable diamond from a stone. Also one of the prominent badass characters in the whole anime.

From living a miserable life of a slave to polishing herself to bear pain and suffering. Can we talk about her calm and composed nature too? I think this is the thing which attracts a person the most. A red-headed wizard who changed any weapon that too with her magic is not something or someone that can be ignored while making this list of badass character anime.

13. Revy From Black Lagoon

Revy is the main protagonist. She is known for her love or her obsession with heavy smoking and drinking. The most miserable thing she did in the anime was kill people mercilessly. She has anger issues, is a very competitive warrior, and of course very rude in nature.

12. Satsuki Kiryuin From Kill la Kill

character giving an angry look

An aristocratic, arrogant, rude, snobbish teenager at school. I have so many words to describe her. Though her long thigh lengthened hair beautified her appearance when she was a child which was later cut short. Though Satsuki Kiryuin was beautiful, the beauty inside is what attracts the people most.

Intelligence was her main tool and the quality that added charm to her personality was her determination to achieve her motto. She has discipline, strict ruling, and the ability to lead people which can overshadow her bad parts maybe. She used to love her sister and her father unconditionally.  The badass character was addicted to tea which enhanced her personality even more.

11. Byakuya Kuchiki From Bleach

Even though Byakuya is on the badass characters list, he was a hell-sweet person deep down. But of course, we can't ignore his badass aspect too. The most attractive part of his personality is him being very strict to follow laws and rules at any cost. His life is disciplined by the fact that he considered a violation of law as a crime that must not be committed even by a renowned person like him.

His Kenseikan, a scarf which was made of expensive silk enhances the charm of his badass personality. The only thing I saw change in Byakuya's personality was the way he changed his behavior from being a hot-headed person to adding a comic side to his persona.

10. Mikoto Misaka From A Certain Magical Index

Railgun or Mikoto Misaka is one of my favorite and the (read, strongest) badass characters in comparison to many other anime characters. She is known for her electromagnetic powers which can be used to turn the world into ash or projectile anything that too anytime.

In the manga series she was an 8th standard teenager but with unremarkable intelligence and vigor in her actions. She had sharp features and sheen eyes which can be attractive. The popularity of this badass character is mainly due to her strong sense of justice and efforts to save her clones. She once got help from one of her friends and later he fell in love with her.

9. Hyakkimaru from Dororo

Hyakkimaru is the main protagonist of Dororo with an undying desire and determination to get his body parts back from the demon. And for them, he is ready to cruelly slaughter his father and brother. To be very honest his personality cannot be determined because of his indefinable facial expression and lack of speech.

The darker and rigid side of his personality is mostly related to his father and brother. He is shown to be very curious and naive at first but after getting to know all the facts, his mercy and sentimental personality gradually fade with time and a different persona comes over it. In the end, he became a person who will not hesitate to kill anyone and destroy anything that will come in between his plan or aim.

8. Thorfinn from Vinland Saga

Thorfinn is the main protagonist of the Vinland Saga is a very skillful person. He is shown to be a successful captain but suffered a lot in his life. We saw in the manga that he lost his father but instead of being sad, he developed himself into a very strong person and a battlefield fighter who is extremely rigid and can fight with anyone regardless of how powerful the opponent is. We can say that his father's death transformed him a lot as a person.

7. Yami Sukehiro from Black Clover

Yami Sukehiro is the most reckless knight in the whole manga series. He has the ability to kill or destroy anything that causes even the slightest inconvenience or trouble to him. He is more like a doer. His actions, not words show his real intentions. He is shown to be a short-tempered guy who will go to the edge if someone is betraying him. The most attractive part of him is his sharp brain which helps him to plan the strategies to put his rivals into difficult and miserable positions.

6. Kiyotaka Ayanokouji From Classroom of the Elite

This badass young boy is my favorite. A great insight to dig people's feelings and know their emotion is his power.  He is the main lead and one of the most badass anime characters in the anime world. His body is so fit that I even had a crush on him for a while. He is an average student and has the skill of manipulating others.

5. Shiba Tatsuya From The Irregular at Magic High School

Shiba Tatsuya is the main protagonist character of this anime series. He is a first-year student at a magical high school. Though doing magic is his specialty and he is known for his strenuous and well-developed physical capacity.

His muscular and huge body is strong enough to support him on the battlefield against other magicians who can't even match his power. This badass character is unflinching and immortal. In addition to his magical abilities, he is also shown to have unmatchable intelligence and sharpness with which he creates new magical codes.

4. Madara Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden


Don't tell me you guys don't know who Madara Uchiha is! He is a major villain from the most famous anime series Naruto. Though his personality is more of a hero than a villain. His childhood days helped him to become what he is today. He suffered all his childhood and even saw the death of his whole family in front of him. Which changed him in person. He was so powerful that he used to fight with most of the enemies alone.

3. Cosmo Imai From Kengan Ashura

Cosmo is a bright, cheerful, and optimistic fighter who finds it very easy to make friends. The most confusing part about him is his smile. He usually smiles in difficult situations too which makes him look strong. He was called Social Butterfly in his school because of his ability to make friends easily. The king of the strangle is famous for his adaptable and quick skills in a battleground.

2. Satou From Ajin


Satou from Ajin endures ordinary qualities, mostly the evil ones. He has a profound love for killing others and being a tyrant. He is a bit different from other badass characters. He is shown to be soft, playful, and lenient at first and but with time his personality changes.

He is an immortal himself so he kills a large group of people at a time, which is very dangerous and ruthless of him. His ability to paralyze any man by just screaming is the power that adds vigor to his personality and makes him fiercer and evil.

1. Soma From Shokugeki no Soma

A restaurant owner who is obviously obsessed with cooking. His personality and his battlefield differentiate him from other badass characters. Soma is much of a challenger, energetic, and eager to learn and explore new things. The only plus point in him is that he is very calm and remains cool and playful in intense situations too. He is a young and passionate boy who can willing to accept any sort of challenge, thrown at him.
