This serious and responsible character is a slippery slope with fans. You either entirely love or hate him. There’s no middle ground. He has a grumpy attitude, which is occasionally attractive, and he hates it when people behave irresponsibly or like children. Even though people usually make fun of him, he has learned to take it in stride, and if it’s an enemy that mocks him, he makes sure to pay them back in full. His short height and fluffy white hair have earned him lots of attention from fans.

He is eccentric and can quickly get excited, as is seen when he gets fired up in situations where others are normal.

Decim holds deep respect for those that have lived a fulfilling life. His handsome face and relaxed attitude have earned him a well-deserved spot on this list.

The successor of the greatest detective, L, Near is analytical and has a strong acumen for strategizing. He has messy white hair and a deceptively cute and handsome face. Don’t let his childish surroundings and constant playing with toys fool you. He is cunning and can have criminals running with their tails between their legs. Even the FBI acknowledges his abilities. And his role in the anime was fascinating to watch. He may seem childish but can be very intimidating.

With more than half of his extremely handsome face hidden, this teacher’s appearance is initially left to viewers’ imagination, barring his spiky blue hair, attractive dead-inside eyes, and black mask. These have grown to become identifying characteristics of Kakashi-sensei. He likes to read a certain perverted book and tends to remain calm even in intense situations. He is analytical and respected throughout the ninja world. While he seems like a cool dude, he has had a very rough past himself.

2. Kaneki Ken (Tokyo Ghoul)

Ken initially had black hair, and the change in his hair color also signifies a greater change in his character. He is not the same person. Kaneki sheds away his old hair, and with it, his old world. This is the beginning of a new Kaneki, a more unpredictable, ruthless, and powerful half-human half-ghoul. 

1. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)

This assassin extraordinaire is a treat to watch, especially when he is in action and slicing through opponents, or when he’s thinking, and also when he’s smiling. In fact, Killua manages to be awesome throughout the series. While he is a master assassin, he also has a loving and caring side and can do anything for the safety of his friends. He is also a glutton and can chow down sweets in an instant. His character development is thrilling, and he is an absolute badass.

Honorable mentions-

  • Allen Walker (D.Gray-Man)

It’s fascinating how a trait, the hair color, can make such a big difference in the likability and hype surrounding a character. While in the real world, it signifies old age, in the anime world, it has grown to become a sign of beauty and mystery, and generally, a troubled past.
