According to Wikipedia’s entry on Aries, those who are born from March 20th to April 21st, under the tropical zodiac, get the star sign Aries.
Aries Character Traits
Before starting this list, let’s get to know this star sign real quick.
Aries is the first fire sign among the zodiacs. The color associated with it is red, while its symbol is the ram.
Ariens are known to be bold, determined, brave, competitive, and optimistic. They’re also brimming with energy, are friendly and honest, and can be natural leaders.
They can be independent and passionate pioneers too!
However, when some of these traits are not kept in check, they can become negative aspects of their personalities.
Ariens can get reckless, tactless, impatient, overly competitive, and easily angered. Their blind optimism can lead them into risky situations.
Still, their fiery characteristics, matched with their headstrong ram personality, make them an assertive and loyal ally that should be treasured!
You might also notice that a lot of heroic main characters are Ariens!

Whether Rei is truly an Aries remains a mystery.
Her birthday isn’t set in stone, and fans only celebrate it on March 30th due to the compilation album Evangelion: The Birthday of Rei Ayanami, released on said date.
But despite her reserved and quiet nature, Rei still shows some Aries traits.
She is fiercely loyal and very determined to reach her goal, as shown with how she interacted with Gendo.
20. Kinomoto Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura)
Date of Birth: April 1st
You might not expect her to be an Aries at first, but Sakura’s energetic nature, friendly personality, and optimism make her a true-blue Arien!
Throughout the series, she befriends a lot of characters – from aggressive Clow Cards to her rival turned love interest Syaoran.
She is also very optimistic, often saying, “Everything will surely be alright.”
We definitely need that kind of positivity in our life, Sakura.
19. Takasu Ryuji (Toradora!)
Date of Birth: April 11th
Because of his intimidating look, particularly his eyes, him being an Aries is immediately unmistakable.
But unlike some Ariens, Ryuji is actually a chill dude. Some people think he’s a delinquent, but he’s far from that!
He’s friendly – the student council vice president is his best friend! He’s also determined with his studies, getting great grades to the surprise of some.

Date of Birth: April 8th
Tamaki’s energetic and spontaneous nature is unmistakably an Aries trait!
He’s the lively and charismatic leader of the school’s host club. But he can be pushy with his decisions and was even a bit possessive of Haruhi at first. He can also get sulky quickly.
But his positive traits outshine those. His leadership united five directionless boys and started the after-school club that gave them all a home at school.
17. Natsuki Subaru (Re: Zero)
Date of Birth: April 1st
As a shut-in NEET, Subaru was immediately hopeful and optimistic to the new life and adventure he is given in this new fantasy world.

However, with the help of Rem, he turned himself around and took steps to amend himself.
16. Norman (The Promised Neverland)
Date of Birth: March 21st
As one of the oldest kids in the orphanage, Norman was one of the first to know the truth about their reality and helped plan their escape.
On the surface, Norman might seem calm and level-headed. But underneath that is a turmoil of emotions and conflicting morality.
He is quite loyal to Emma, however. So when she wanted to save everyone, he hatched a plan that was quite cold-blooded.
Norman definitely shows how driven and ruthless he can be when pushed!
15. Usopp (One Piece)
Date of Birth: April 1st
He might not seem like an Aries at first, but Usopp grows into a proper and respectable Arien!
At the start of the series, he was shown as being cowardly, which stemmed from his insecurity of not being strong like Luffy and the gang.
But with the power of friendship, his bravery definitely shines through later on! Numerous times, he set aside his fear and faced enemies head-on, just for his friends.
Never doubt God Usopp’s loyalty to his friends!
14. Urameshi Yusuke (Yuyu Hakusho)
Date of Birth: March 26th
Yusuke started out as a delinquent with a short temper.
He’s bold and cocky and can get really impulsive and start fights, like butting heads with Kuwabara at the start of the series.
But later on, he was able to channel these traits into productive output. He became a great leader to his team and is very protective of his friends.
His eagerness to fight proved useful and Genkai even noted that he could be quite the genius when it comes to fighting!

She got competitive with Ino when it comes to Sasuke and was definitely not shy with showing her temper to Naruto or her rivals!
As she got older, those traits are still there but have also matured. To improve herself, she underwent training with Tsunade to become a medical ninja.
Along with Naruto, she was also determined to bring Sasuke back.
11. Legoshi (Beastars)
Birth of Date: April 9th
Due to his crippling self-esteem and fear of showing his carnivorous self, Legoshi doesn’t seem like an Aries at first.
But if he lets himself show his wolf side, he can be quite intimidating and imposing!
His heart is in the right place, though. He’s often stubborn and impulsive when it comes to personal convictions, like helping and understanding others, even enemies like Riz.
10. Shigaraki Tomura (My Hero Academia)
Date of Birth: April 4th
Shigaraki, the leader of the League of Villains, definitely displays a few negative traits of
When he loses or doesn’t get what he wants, he throws a tantrum and lashes out. He can be impatient and controlling as a leader too.
Despite these traits, he is quite proud of his ragtag group of villains and tries to lead them in the best way he knows.
9. Gabi Braun (Attack on Titan)
Date of Birth: April 14th

To turn the tides in battle, she was willing to crawl to enemy lines and pretend to be a hapless war victim, only to chuck bombs at the enemies.
It was a bit reckless, but it definitely showcased her determination and bravery!
A lot of AoT fans dislike Gabi, but I bet they can even admit that that was pretty bold.
8. Annie Leonhart (Attack on Titan)
Date of Birth: March 22nd
Here’s another AoT character who’s also an unmistakable Aries.

All she wanted was to go home to her dad.
7. Kouzuki Kallen (Code Geass)
Date of Birth: March 29th
The tough and headstrong Kallen had to live a double life and pretend to be a meek and sickly student to hide her true identity.
It wasn’t easy, but she was determined to continue her late brother’s legacy to fight for Japan.
She can be quick to temper and impulsive. Her scarlet hair and overall red theme definitely mirrors her fiery Aries nature.
6. Giorno Giovanna (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Date of Birth: April 16th
A notable trait of Giorno is his resolve. Once he makes up his mind on an important decision, he will see through it till the end.

Giorno can also be quite ambitious. He wasted no time infiltrating Passione and climbing up its ranks.
5. Johan Liebert (Monster)
Date of Birth: April 7th
Don’t be fooled by this guy. He might seem charismatic and nice, but his real self is quite monstrous.

Johan definitely shows the scary side of Aries!
4. Kurapika (Hunter X Hunter)
Date of Birth: April 4th
Because of what happened to his clan, Kurapika started a vengeful path against the Spiders.
Like other Ariens in this list, Kurapika definitely shows strong-willed determination to reach his goals. He was even very closed off from people at the start just so he could focus.
Although seemingly calm, his temper can be quite fiery and uncontrollable, especially against those who wronged him and his loved ones.
3. Bakugo Katsuki (My Hero Academia)
Date of Birth: April 20th
When it comes to explosive tempers, Bakugo definitely tops the list!
He can be brash and headstrong. When he’s angry, he definitely doesn’t mind showing it to everyone.
He shows the negative side of an Aries temper, where it crosses to being a bully.
Despite that, he’s not a delinquent or a villain. His drive to be a capable hero, like his hero All Might, is actually quite inspiring.
2. Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
Date of Birth: March 25th
Betrayal, government secrets, and corruption – being an officer of the state military is not an easy life!
And Roy knows he has to tread carefully. So he creates a facade of a lazy and womanizing officer to lower his enemies’ guard towards him.
The truth is that Roy Mustang is a remarkable and fearless commander and leader who’s very determined to crush his enemies no matter what.
He’s a Flame Alchemist as well, which suits the fire element of an Aries.
On top of that, he also has a fiery temper. As seen when he fought against Envy, he pulled all the stops and toasted the lowlife with his rage and alchemy.
Roy Mustang is one of the best examples of an Aries!
1. Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan)
Date of Birth: March 30th
Whew, we went through a lot of hot-blooded Aries anime characters there. But now we have to crown the best one of all.
For Nerdbear’s top pick for the best Aries anime character, here’s Eren Jaeger!
Life pretty much turned upside down for young Eren when Titans attacked his town. Ever since that day, we see his raging Aries side numerous times.
He’s very determined to end the terror brought by Titans. Despite seriously injuring himself whenever he transforms into the Attack Titan, he does it to ultimately reach his goals.
However, around Season 4, that fiery nature got replaced by a cold and calculating personality.
But don’t mistake this change for being uncaring. Eren’s fire still continues to burn underneath this seemingly calm surface.
