It's great to be confident, but there are some anime characters who speed straight past confident and become full-blown anime narcissists. While there are characters of all types who are totally in love with themselves, this article is focused on the ones who also engage in battle. Their self-love often connects with their fighting abilities, but more often than none it's about their appearance.
They think they're the most gorgeous thing on the planet, and can sometimes get so distracted by their own beauty that they're worse fighters than they otherwise might be - like Dragon Ball Z's Zarbon, a character who refuses to use a power-up on the ground that it will make him ugly. In some cases, as with Deidara of Naruto, the focus is less on their own appearance and more on just aesthetics in general - but if you don't agree with their aesthetic vision, you're wrong.
But anime characters who are narcissists aren't all bad - some of them are actually extremely charming. Yuga Aoyama's self-appreciation in My Hero Academia might be silly, but since he's well-meaning and kind, it's also adorable. These characters are different from typically warriors who focus entirely on strength, so they can feel like a breath of fresh air. Which ones are your favorites?
