From Captain Levi to Satoru Gojo: Here are 10 of The Coolest Characters in Anime

Many anime characters devote themselves relentlessly to enhancing their skills and strength, enduring arduous training to push beyond their boundaries and conquer adversaries. Though challenging, those who persevere witness remarkable growth.

Yet, coolness isn't a skill acquired through practice; it's innate. One either possesses it or doesn't. The qualities that render a character cool may differ, but the most revered ones exude composure and self-assurance in any situation. Their uniqueness captivates audiences, earning them a devoted fanbase and significant acclaim. Let's look at 10 of the coolest characters in Anime; from Levi Ackerman to Satoru Gojo.

10. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)

Killua Zoldyck stands as one of the central figures in Hunter X Hunter, widely regarded as one of its most beloved characters. Born into the notorious Zoldyck clan of assassins, Killua is hailed for his boundless potential. Throughout his adventures alongside Gon, Killua has demonstrated exceptional aptitude in mastering Nen and honing his skills. His mentor, Wing, even noted that his exceptional talent is a rarity, found only once in every 10 million individuals.

Despite his youth, Killua exudes a demeanor of calm and composure that belies his age. He often approaches challenges with a rational mindset, setting emotions aside to devise pragmatic strategies. Many of Killua's triumphs appear effortless, with the young hunter emerging victorious even with his hands casually tucked in his pockets.

9. Kurisu Makise (Steins;Gate)

Renowned for her intelligence and maturity, Kurisu Makise emerges as one of the most captivating anime characters, breaking away from the conventional portrayals often seen among female anime characters in Steins;Gate. Despite her youth, Kurisu commands respect as a distinguished neuroscientist, delving into the complexities of time travel through her lectures. Her profound scientific acumen proves invaluable in aiding protagonist Rintaro Okabe's ventures into time leaping. Moreover, her spirited demeanor sparks lively exchanges and witty repartee with Rintaro Okabe.

Beneath Kurisu's sharp wit lies a depth of empathy and wisdom that transcends her years. Her willingness to make sacrifices for the sake of her friends, despite the potential ramifications on the fabric of space-time, adds a poignant layer to her character, leaving a lasting impact on viewers.

8. Itachi Uchiha (Naruto)

Itachi Uchiha from Naruto stood apart from his fellow shinobi in numerous ways. Despite his limited screen time, his presence left a lasting impression, characterized by dialogues that often overshadowed the actual combat. Remarkably wise for his age, Itachi had a knack for compelling his adversaries to introspect, leading both them and viewers to question the true nature of villainy.

With a distinct skill set, Itachi mastered Genjutsu to such a degree that many of his battles unfolded within the realm of the mind. One particularly memorable and undeniably cool moment occurred during his clash with Sasuke. After Sasuke believed he had defeated Itachi, he was astounded to discover Itachi seated on his throne, revealing that Sasuke had fallen victim to an illusion.

7. Giyu Tomioka (Demon Slayer)

Giyu epitomizes the archetypal cool-guy in anime: formidable, composed, enigmatic, and reserved. In the Demon Slayer series, where characters often adhere strictly to a black-and-white worldview, Giyu stands out for his open-mindedness. While Demon Slayers universally view demons as the ultimate evil, Giyu maintains a willingness to consider alternatives.

Despite millennia of demonic terror, Giyu's encounter with Nezuko challenges his convictions. Witnessing Nezuko's unwavering love for her brother, even in her demon state, prompts Giyu to deviate from the norm. He chooses to spare her life, acknowledging the possibility that not all demons are irredeemable. In an unprecedented move, Giyu pledges to take his own life should Nezuko ever pose a threat to humans, underscoring his unwavering faith in her inherent goodness. This pivotal decision solidifies Giyu's belief in Nezuko and showcases his capacity for compassion amidst a world of unyielding dogma.

6. Kakashi Hatake (Naruto)

The enigmatic leader, Kakashi Hatake, assumes the role of captain and mentor for Team 7 in Naruto, all while shrouding himself in mysteries behind his iconic mask-and-headband ensemble. His elusive persona, coupled with his prowess and sagacity, solidifies his position as one of the most captivating anime characters in the genre.

With most of his face concealed, save for a lone, droopy dark grey eye, Kakashi exudes an air of mystique. Renowned as Kakashi of the Sharingan, he possesses formidable combat skills, honed since a young age, and wields the powerful Sharingan in his left eye.

Initially perceived as laid-back and whimsical, often found engrossed in Makeout Paradise books, Kakashi's true depth is revealed through his unwavering commitment to his friends over adherence to rules. His sage counsel proves instrumental in guiding protagonists Naruto and Sasuke through numerous trials and tribulations. As Kakashi gradually opens up, forging strong bonds with his team, his character evolves into a truly compelling figure, earning the admiration of viewers.

5. Shanks (One Piece)

Shanks stands out amidst the cutthroat world of pirates in the One Piece universe with his pacifist nature and distinctive red hair. His pacifism was prominently displayed during the Marineford conflict when he intervened to halt the war, advocating for an end to the bloodshed.

Moreover, Shanks played a pivotal role in persuading Kaido to refrain from attacking during the Marineford ordeal, a decision that likely spared countless lives. His magnetic personality has a knack for disarming even the most solemn individuals, drawing them into his jovial spirit. Despite being recognized as one of the four most formidable pirates, Shanks enjoys widespread popularity and admiration throughout the One Piece narrative.

4. Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)

Spike Spiegel, with his dark brown hair that often takes on a greenish hue in certain lighting, exudes unparalleled charisma, solidifying his status as one of the most effortlessly cool anime characters to grace the screen in Cowboy Bebop.

A former assassin striving to distance himself from his shadowy history, Spike adopts a demeanor of nonchalance and carefreeness, despite being a formidable combatant proficient in both hand-to-hand combat and gunplay. His quick wit and unshakeable composure in the face of daunting challenges further contribute to his undeniable appeal.

However, what truly sets Spike apart is the enigmatic past he shares with his former lover, Julia, a narrative thread slowly unraveled throughout the series. Spike's poignant conclusion underscores his ultimate act of selflessness for love, adding a layer of depth and poignancy to his character.

3. Satoru Gojo (Jujutsu Kaisen)

In the popular anime Jujutsu Kaisen, the eccentric mentor figure Satoru Gojo undoubtedly stands out, thanks in large part to his unique infinity ability. With a combination of exceptional skills and a charismatic demeanor, he effortlessly earns his place as one of the coolest anime characters of recent times.

Sporting a laid-back swagger, distinctive spiky white hair, and eyes concealed behind a blindfold, Gojo's appearance is as eye-catching as it is unconventional for a Jujitsu teacher. His infinity power grants him the ability to create a void space where he remains untouchable while unleashing overpowering attacks against his adversaries.

Despite his flashy exterior, Gojo is known among his students for his seemingly lazy attitude and unorthodox teaching methods, often employing a mix of tough love and eccentricity. However, beneath this facade lies a profound strength and genuine concern for his students' well-being, revealing a caring nature that belies his lackadaisical demeanor.

2. Vegeta (Dragon Ball)

Whenever Vegeta, the Saiyan Prince from Dragon Ball Z, utters a word, all ears perk up. Gifted with a commanding presence and unparalleled pride, Vegeta seamlessly integrates his immense ego into stirring speeches and impassioned soliloquies. Prior to besting his adversaries, he elucidates precisely why they stand defeated and elucidates his own superiority.

In moments of dire straits, Vegeta resolutely reminds his foes of the folly in underestimating the indomitable strength of Saiyans before pushing past his own limits once more. His solemn and introspective demeanor stands in stark contrast to Goku's carefree and jovial nature, earning him a legion of devoted fans. While Goku may boast greater strength, there's no denying that Vegeta reigns supreme in the realm of coolness.

1. Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

The immensely popular dark fantasy series Attack on Titan has elevated Levi Ackerman to the status of an iconic figure among fans. Renowned for his combat prowess and exceptional leadership qualities, Levi remains etched in the memories of viewers as one of the coolest anime characters to date.

In his role as Captain of the Scout Regiment, entrusted with safeguarding humanity from the monstrous Titans, Levi showcases unparalleled combat skills that rightfully earn him the title of humanity's strongest soldier. Armed with twin blades and equipped with acrobatic gear, he fearlessly confronts foes many times his size, his stoic expression betraying little of the intensity of his actions.

Levi's intimidating aura is further accentuated by his stern yet genuine demeanor, shaped by a challenging upbringing. Despite his harsh exterior, witnessing this resolute warrior forge bonds and provide guidance to protagonist Eren Yeager amid new perils highlights his unwavering reliability as a true leader.
