For every great anime character, there is a mother behind the scenes who helped make that person who they are (for better or worse is neither here nor there). For that reason we're ranking the best anime moms of all time, with the help of your votes. Who is your favorite mother character in anime? Mother characters are typically very loving and nurturing, but in anime mothers can be very evil. Then there is the trope of the dead mother, seen in shows like Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach. The mother in both of these shows drives the antagonist through a spiritual connection, as characters in anime are often motivated by their mothers.

So who's the greatest anime mom of all time? Up vote your favorites below, and feel free to add any of your top anime mothers to the list if they're not already here. Check out some of our other lists too, like the best anime fathers of all time, and the most annoying anime characters.
