Ranked by
  • Kusuo Saiki

    Kusuo Saiki

    The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
    252 votes

    Green glasses restrain psychic Saiki’s limitless powers letting him seem like an average high schooler, but his vivid pink hair hints at secrets. Constantly burdened with involuntary telepathic insights, apathetic Saiki wants nothing more than the quiet life, but daily disaster constantly befalls him and his eccentric friends. His deadpan snarkiness conceals kindness as Saiki helps others discreetly using abilities kept hidden to avoid unwanted attention.

  • Mitsuri Kanroji
    Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
    261 votes

    As the Love Hashira, Kanroji’s flamboyant pink hair and custom modified uniform give her a distinctive aesthetic within the Demon Slayer Corps matching her bubbly personality. Capable of wielding the extendable whip-like arms granted by her Breath of Love style, petite Kanroji’s natural flexibility and enhanced agility make her a formidable support fighter against demons. But her confidence is fragile, stemming from harsh childhood training and body image issues.

  • Ken Kaneki
    Tokyo Ghoul
    198 votes

    Bookish Kaneki’s jet black hair and eyepatch mask his dual existence as human and one-eyed Ghoul after a transplant saved his life but altered his nature. Undergoing painful transformations mirroring mental anguish, Kaneki protects human friends from both Ghouls and overzealous investigators while struggling to accept his contradictions as neither fully one nor the other.

  • Denki Kaminari
    My Hero Academia
    225 votes

    Simple-minded Kaminari excessively courts girls at UA High between using his “Electrification” Quirk in combat. While lacking clever tactics, Kaminari can unleash devastating voltage covering his spiked blonde hair in a jagged lightning pattern until temporary overuse short-circuits his brain. Behind flashy moves compensating for mediocre academics lies earnest spirit to master his quirky power.

  • Shoko Komi

    Shoko Komi

    Komi Can't Communicate
    183 votes

    The sound of gorgeous Komi's voice induces paralyzing anxiety due to her obsessive fear of judgment for childhood selective mutism. With raven hair partially tied up, shy Komi yearns to make 100 friends to become "normal," finding unlikely aid from outgoing classmate Tadano amid humorous school social mishaps. Overcoming her solitary nature through friendship is Komi's ongoing quest.

  • Ranpo Edogawa
    Bungo Stray Dogs
    162 votes

    Eccentric sleuth Ranpo relies on candies to fuel his genius mind solving seemingly unsolvable cases, when not napping on the job. His shaggy dark bangs poke over childish attire belying formidable deductive prowess on par with the world's greatest detective, L. But Ranpo bristles at analysis implying any special ability beyond pure reasoning to preserve his grounded identity.
