Updated April 19, 2019 10.5k votes 2.0k voters 6.5k views20 items

Just about every character in Dragon Ball Z can take to the skies, but there are plenty of great anime characters who can fly outside of that series. Flying anime characters can crop up in everything from action-packed shonen series like One Piece and Naruto to quirky slice-of-life shows like Flying Witch.

Who are the best anime characters who can fly? That's up to you! If you love villainous characters who fly using innovative and bizarre methods, you may also be a fan of Donquixote Doflamingo. Love flying wizards who cry when they mess up their hair? You'll probably like Howl from the Studio Ghibli film, Howl's Moving Castle.

Give your favorite flying characters some love by voting them up.

  • Ichigo is able to fly thanks to his bankai. He's also able to concentrate reishi - a form of energy similar to chakra - beneath his feet to form a "floor," allowing him to walk on air.
