Anime characters with healing powers are often overlooked by fans. It’s not a power that usually goes to protagonists, and it isn’t as obviously cool as, say, shooting fire out of one’s hands. In fact, healers have a reputation for being weak, passive people who can’t fight and aren’t especially interesting.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. While there are some anime healers who don’t participate in battles, that’s for a good reason - they’re so critical to the outcome of a battle and the longevity of the heroes that they must prioritize their own safety. What’s more, there are plenty of anime healers who will happily throw hands - Tsunade is one of the greatest ninja in Naruto history, and not just for her healing prowess.
Each one of these healing abilities operates slightly differently - some are nearly infinite, while others have strict limits and rules. However their abilities function, anime characters with healing abilities are crucial members of their teams because they let warrior types take risks and keep going when they’d otherwise be bedridden or hospitalized. Let’s give these amazing characters some love!
