List of all Elfen Lied characters, including main characters, heroes, villains, and more. One of the more violent gore anime that's out there, Elfen Lied tells the story of Lucy, an escaped "Diclonius" who was being experimented on due to her unique nature. Many bodies are laid to waste during her exit, and after being injured she develops a second, child-like personality that only speaks the word "Nyu". Lucy is found and taken in by two children, Kohta and Yuka, who eventually work with other Diclonius and a special assault team to try and re-capture Lucy. Although Elfen Lied is more psychological and isn't a character-heavy show, we want to know which characters resonated with you the most. Vote for the ones you like, and downvote any that you didn't really enjoy.
