It's hard not to love anime characters with red hair. Just like in the real world, they tend to be a little more unique and special looking compared to brown and blonde haired people. Red haired anime characters have become strong fan favorites over the years, maybe because they stand out and are always full of life and energy. They've appeared in a variety of popular genres, including incest anime, ecchi harem animes, scary animes, and more. 

This list includes both male and female red hair anime characters that are powerful, sexy, funny, and everything in between. Who is the greatest red haired anime character of all time? Our poll below is a great starting point to answering that question, but we strongly encourage you to add your favorite red hair anime characters to this list if they're not already here. We've included obvious choices like Gaara, Rias, Shanks, and Renji, but there are bound to be plenty of others that we might not have thought of when making this list. If you add your favorite character with red hair, others can vote for them too!
