List Rules Vote up your favorite twins in anime.

The trope of twins in anime can take several different narrative paths depending on the series. One character by their lonesome is simply a plot, but with anime twins, you get both a plot and a plot device. Certain anime with twins begin with either one or both twins in leading roles, aware of their status as siblings. Other shows uncover this information as a twist, usually adding to the dynamic of one “good guy” twin and one “bad guy” twin. In fact, many of your favorite anime twins have been polar opposites of one another. Another common trope for twins featured in anime is the slightly nauseating “twincest” where the siblings either hint at or are physically engaged in an incestuous relationship. Whatever the scenario may be, the best anime twins are the ones that the audience connects with.

Whether complete opposites or unbelievable mirrors of one another, the greatest anime twins of all time possess one unifying trait: legions of devoted fans who call them their favorite anime twins of all time. The ones below come with no shortage of fans, or for that matter, drama, standing out among the many important siblings in the anime world. Twins in anime, like twins in real life, simply double the fun of whatever they're involved in.

Warning: several relationships depicted below are spoilers.
