The most popular anime male characters of all time

You can’t sit with us. Seriously, this table is reserved for most anime popular male characters of all time. Get lost, loser. Sit with the other rejections. The guys at this table are way more stylish and overwhelming than everybody otherwise, you included. What is that? Do you want to know who they are? How do you not know yet? Everybody knows these characters. Everybody useful to know that is.

Listen, I see you’re new. So I’ll let you know who these are once as a favor. That way you can start telling all your weird little friends that you almost talk to the coolest, hottest characters in the whole school.

10. Satoru Goju

Satoru Goju is a new boy like you but he is much hotter. Srsly, he’s like pretty. He switched from one of Jujutsu Kaisensorcery schools. He’s a For real powerful wizard. If totally overwhelmed. In fact, being really ridiculously good at something is the main criterion for being a popular character in the anime fandoms. He may only be on the scene for a year or so, but he’s totally earned his place.

9. Guts

(OLM Inc.)

OMG Guts van Berserk could totally be on the football team. He is built like a linebacker. That guy is like 6’8″ and 320 pounds solid” beef. However, is he too busy killing demons and taking revenge on a god who betrayed him? Idk, I never really listen to the backstories. I just love basking in the glory of who the popular kids are now. Guts is an absolute fan favorite because he is very good when killing demons. He’s got a sword that’s basically just a 200-pound piece of solid iron, but he can swing it around like it’s a toothpick. So cool. He also likes to have a For real hard life so he gets a lot of sympathy points.

8. Reigen Arataka

OK so Reigen Arataka van Mob Psycho 100 is only good at one thing: trust. making people to believe he’s good at something is literally his only talent. That and making the entire Tumblr community inexplicably crave him. I do not get it either. But they love him. So I love him. He is currently the #1 Tumblr Sexyman. The Onceler could never do that.

7. Roronoa Zoro

Roronoa Zoro out A piece is popular because he very good when using his mouth. For carrying swords. He fights with three at the same time. Two in his hands and one between his teeth? Who else in anime does that? He is like that original. But as in a cool way and not in a weird homeschooled kid way. Seriously Roronoa Zoro is more popular than Monkey D. Luffy, and Luffy is the main character. Don’t tell Luffy I said that, I still think he’s pretty cool. Just no as cool.

6. L. Lawliet

L in Death Note ep 25
(ie media)

L of Obituary used to be So popular when he *sniffle* was alive. That’s why we keep an empty seat for him. We also sometimes leave candy on it, because he loved candy so much. L was one of the smartest characters in anime history, but he was killed by that loser Light Yagami. He was so cute and sweet, literally everybody was in love with him. When he died he was right Lake popular because his death was so tragic. He’s like Van Gogh, you know? A lost genius. Too good for this world.

5. Saitama

That’s Saitama there, but not even look at him. He could kill you with a punch. That’s why he’s called One Punch Man. He is the most powerful anime character in history. He could beat everybody sit at this table. Except maybe Reigen, no one else is That confident. He’d be higher on this list, but he’s a bit of a sucker if he’s not a total badass. I don’t make the rules! The fans do. If he wasn’t the most powerful anime character ever, he’d probably be among the gamer geeks. Sad, but true.

4. Spike Mirror

Spike Mirror from Cowboy Bebop is one of the cool kids because being cool is his whole personality. But not in an “omg I just wanna be cool” way, more like an “I know I’m cool and I don’t even care” way. Literally the coolest, right? And he flies a spaceship, fights amazingly well and dresses up impeccable. I mean, look at him, that suit? He’s the best dressed here. Reigen Arataka could never do that.

3. Itachi Uchiha

Itachi Uchiha is the it boy of Naruto. And there are a lot of it guys Naruto. Kakashi Hatake, Sasuke Uchiha (his little brother) and even Naruto himself! But Itachi is the the boy of the boys. He is the most talented ninja of his generation and he has one of the best villains to heroes in anime history. Fans loved him when they thought he was just a stone cold badass, but after they found out how much he… Loves his little brother, the fans, made him a literal anime god.

2. Levi Ackerman

Levi Ackerman out Attack on Titan is the undisputed man of the anime community right now. Everybody hates him even more than Reigan Arataka. Completely understand why. He’s handsome, talented and really mean. Those are the criteria for being popular as long as the concept of popularity exists! Levi Ackerman is the greatest warrior in all Attack on Titan universe. Trying to kill a group of Titans is one degree from suicide for a battalion of regular soldiers, but for Levi it’s just a Tuesday afternoon. He’s also a neat freak, and that’s hot. Who doesn’t love a man who cleans your house for you?

1. Son Goku

(Toi animation)

goku from Dragon Ball Z is the most popular anime character in history. Case closed. Without Goku there would be no Naruto, there would be no Monkey D. Luffy, there would be no Ichigo of Bleach. Goku is a total trendsetter. He has come up with the form to be a “popular anime character”. He was the original overwhelmed main character, and he is still happening. Goku has been there since the 80s. he’s almost forty years old. He is an absolute legend. He was one of the reasons why anime yourself become popular in the first place. It’s kind of weird that he hasn’t graduated yet even though he’s that old, but I’ve heard it’s because he doesn’t pass a class every year except PE. He skips class to fight aliens. Honestly, I would too, it’s what made him so popular in the first place.
