Let’s face it, there are some really badass anime characters out there. And within that bastion of badass-itude lies the characters that make anime what it is. Here are our picks for the Top 5 most bad ass anime characters
- Rei Ayanami (Neo Genesis Evangelion)
The pilot of Evangelion Unit 00, Rei’s cold personality is betrayed by her intense fighting ability and masterful control of her Evangelion unit. Her icy exterior adds an allure to her unemotional yet calculating fighting style.
- Kamina (Gurren Lagaan)
Quite different from your standard anime idol figure, Kamina has an unwavering loyalty to the concept of manhood. With his trademark glasses, cape, and sword Kamina is easily one of the most badass characters in all of mecha anime.
There’s not many people who can make the claim that they’re immortal. Hellsing can, and his bad assitude is judged not by his ability to survive, but by the way he toys with the mortality of his enemies, often mocking them in their final moments. Hellsing is cold, ruthless, powerful, and undeniably badass, and this belongs on any top anime list.
- All Might
On the newer show, My Hero Academia there is the main character All Might, the world’s greatest superhero. In the first we learn that All Might is suffering from a degenerative issue that causes him massive pain. But, because of his status as a world’s hero, All Might hides it and continues to fight no matter what.
- Itachi Uchiha
An anime fan favorite, Itachi was a genius ninja from a very young age. He is provides primary motivation for his younger brother Sasuke after Itachi slaughters their entire village. We’ll say that again, Itachi, slaughtered an entire ninja village by himself.
