The Best Anime Catchphrases of All Time

List RulesVote up the greatest anime motto or quotation of all time.

The best anime catchphrases are the ones that are so memorable, even non-fans can recognize the words and know exactly where it’s from. These popular one-liners are the ones you find on t-shirts, posters, and even coffee mugs. You might even say these phrases aloud (if you aren't a closet otaku). Like some of the best Naruto quotes, such as Naruto's “Believe it!,” these phrases define both the characters and the series, becoming trademarks that fans can recite at the drop of a dime.

Some of these repetitive expressions are short and sweet, while others are a bit more wordy, but still totally bad*ss. Many times, the characters take on new variations of their respective phrase or the phrase is adopted by others characters in the series (like Kamina’s “Who hell do you think I am?”). Whether or not you have these phrases on your wall or wear them proudly as an anime tattoo, these catchphrases will live in your heart forever. Vote up the most memorable one-liners from anime that you love to shout - either in secret or in public.
