Best Blonde Anime Characters
35. Beatrice (Re: Zero)
I hope you love books because we’re starting this list with the former guardian and caretaker of the Forbidden Library – Beatrice!
With her curly twintail blonde hair, Beatrice kept the library at Roswaal’s Mansion safe.
She was actually created by the Witch of Greed and told to wait in the library for the person who would save her.
If not for Subaru, she would’ve waited there a long time! Subaru convinced her to live her own life. Grateful for his words, she eventually joined him as a contracted spirit.
34. Meliodas (Seven Deadly Sins)
Don’t let his looks and blond hair deceive you. Meliodas isn’t actually a kid, but a 3000-year-old Dragon Sin of Wrath!
As the eldest son of the Demon King and future leader of their kingdom, Meliodas had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders.
However, his heart had other plans, and he fell in love with Elizabeth, daughter of the Supreme Deity.
This heaven-and-hell romance led to the Holy War and the eventual punishment of the two.
Meliodas was stripped of his titles, and Elizabeth was cursed to reincarnate but lose her memories.
Good thing Meliodas young roguish appeal and blond hair always charms Elizabeth!
33. Tamaki (Ouran Highschool Host Club)
Tamaki’s explosive, overreactive, and flamboyant nature, coupled with his blond hair, definitely deserves a spot in our list!
As the leader, co-founder, and president of the Ouran host club, Tamaki takes his hosting duties seriously.
Their host club guests would describe him as someone “princely” for treating them and making them feel like a princess!
However, Tamaki can be a bit childish as well. When he’s with his friends and fellow hosts, he always has exaggerated and comical reactions.
He pouts, he cries, he gets jealous, and he’s oblivious towards his feelings for Haruhi!
32. Mary (Kakegurui)
The sadistic, blonde twintail-wearing gambler is up next. Here’s Mary from Kakegurui.
At the start of the story, Mary is shown to be savage and brutal to her opponents.
She would openly mock and taunt them, often laughing when she had secured her win.
But after losing to Yumeko and experiencing the consequences of her actions, she was humbled by it and dropped her arrogant nature.
She even realized how twisted their school’s student council is.
She eventually teams up with Yumeko and Ryota to bring justice to their fellow students.
31. Nagisa (Free)
Diving into our blonde anime list, here’s Nagisa Hazuki from the swimming anime Free!
Nagisa moved to Iwatobi High School to be with Haruka in the swim club.
They met during their elementary days, and ever since then, Nagisa has been inspired by Haruka’s swimming abilities.
While enthusiastic and always excited and eager to do swimming-related activities, Nagisa can be a bit brash, childish, and even rebellious.
He snuck inside a closed-off pool and even went skinny dipping!
He’s got a blond and adventurous streak, alright.
30. Shizuo (Durarara)
Lifting and punching his way up on our list is Shizuo, the bartender and bodyguard extraordinaire from Durarara.
Shizuo is known as the strongest man in Ikebukuro, thanks to his feats of lifting vending machines and fighting against Russian sushi chefs.
Unfortunately, he’s not happy with the consequences of his strength.
Shizuo actually abhors violence, but he can’t help but fight back due to his short and reactive temper.
Izaya loves to tease and make him angry, which Shizuo unknowingly obliges.
It is said that his strength is due to his brain not putting a limit on his pain response. Sounds painful!
29. Misa (Death Note)
With a cute smile and a flick of her blonde hair, Misa-Misa joins our anime blonde list!
One of Light’s Death Note victims was the murderer of Misa’s family. Because of this act, Misa became totally loyal to Light.
Her blind devotion to him made her do anything for him. She was even willing to sacrifice her life and get in harm’s way for Light.
Just like how Light had Ryuk, Misa had Rem. Rem developed a protective affection towards Misa and became her guardian angel, shinigami.
28. Tohru (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid)
This next anime, blondie, is a perfect addition to our list. Here’s Tohru, Kobayashi’s personal dragon maid!
After experiencing a nearly fatal injury from a god, Tohru had to flee to the modern world to hide from her enemies.
Thankfully, Kobayashi found her and saved her life.
Tohru was initially scared and judgemental towards humans, but this kindness from a human turned her heart around.
In fact, she’s now madly in love with her savior! Kobayashi doesn’t understand why but jokes that she could be her maid if she wants.
Well, Tohru is immediately on board with that offer!
27. Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
Say it with me now – Love and Peace! This gun-toting anime blonde guy is up next.
For those who aren’t savvy on 90s anime, Trigun is an anime from 1998 and is about a renowned gunman, Vash the Stampede, trying to live life and running away from bounty hunters.
Along the way, he meets two agents from an insurance company investigating his bounty claims, as well as a cross-wielding mystery man.
Vash’s past also catches up to him.
For old Trigun fans, you’re in luck! There’s a new anime adaptation that started last January 2023. For new or curious fans, here’s your chance to discover this classic piece from the 90s.
26. Chitoge (Nisekoi)
With her iconic red ribbon and long blonde hair with strawberry pink tips, we simply can’t skip Chitoge from Nisekoi!
Due to an arranged marriage set out by her father with a Yakuza gang, Chitoge had to be friendly with his soon-to-be husband.
However, their first meeting didn’t go so well since she kneed him in the face!
They even ended up being seatmates. For the next three years or so of high school, she and Raku have to pretend to be in a relationship for the sake of their family and family businesses.
25. Mami (Madoka Magica)
Up next is the gentle and dainty Mami with her blonde twin drills!
Mami acted as a caring mentor and guide to Madoka and her friends.
They didn’t know what it was like to be magical girls, but Mami was very gracious and excited to teach them the ways, tea time and all!
As a magical girl, Mami fights with a lot of flintlock rifles. She also uses yellow ribbons to catch, wrap-around, and suspend her enemies. She also has healing magic!
24. Miyuki (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War)
Hardworking, diligent, and determined, Miyuki works very hard to maintain his school grades and keep his part-time jobs.
Since he’s from a struggling family, he has to face the reality of working.
This has caused him some self-esteem issues, thinking that someone from a richer family won’t even consider his feelings.
So when he develops a crush on Kaguya, who’s the student council vice-president and daughter of a family that owns a conglomerate, Miyuki is understandably intimidated.
But what he doesn’t know is that Kaguya doesn’t mind dating him – as long as he confesses! What follows is a love war of who will confess first.
23. Tsukishima (Haikyuu)
All together now – mou ikkai! Haikyuu’s middle blocker extraordinaire is up next in our list.
Tsukishima started off as someone very aloof and rude. He doesn’t understand why some people would put too much effort into something like volleyball.
After discovering the joys of volleyball and team camaraderie, he has slowly shown his softer side. He also learned to understand the circumstances of his brother.
One of the show’s highlights was when Tsukishima managed to block one of Ushijima’s hits.
In a show with lots of adrenaline-pumping volleyball action, that one really stood out!
22. Tsumugi (K-on)
Our next entry is dedicated to Hokago Tea Time’s keyboard player – Tsumugi!
Tsumugi is the sweet and sweets-loving member of the band.
She’s been a piano prodigy from a very young age, so it’s no surprise that she’s the assigned keyboardist and main musical composer of the band.
Due to her wealthy family, Tsumugi is always excited to try and experience new things, such as ordering fast food.
She also always brings expensive tea and cakes to the club, much to the enjoyment of her fellow members.
Aside from her long blonde hair, her thick eyebrows are also quite iconic. In one episode, she even puts protractors on them!
21. Lucy (Fairy Tail)
She’s beauty, brains, and magic! Team Natsu’s Lucy Heartfilia is up next.
Lucy is not shy to show and flaunt her appearance. She wears her blonde hair in a side ponytail and is quite confident with her outfits.
She left her family to pursue her own path and joined Natsu and the others in their adventure.
Due to her love for books, she wants to write a novel detailing her voyage and adventure with Fairy Tail.
20. Genos (One Punch Man)
This blonde anime cyborg joins our list. Here’s Genos, the Demon Cyborg and loyal disciple of Saitama!
Genos is an S-class hero cyborg. He’s always aiming to become stronger and looks up to Saitama to better himself.
But since he’s quite a serious character, he often doesn’t get jokes.
Ability-wise, a lot of parts in his body have been replaced and modified with cybernetics. This gives him immense strength, speed, and endurance!
19. Kaori (Your Lie in April)
This excellent violin player and free-spirited soul definitely deserves a spot in our anime blonde list!
Kaori is the main female protagonist of Your Lie in April.
She plays the violin really well and in such a unique way that she ends up inspiring a lot of people, including the main protagonist Kousei.
After the death of Kousei’s mother, he hasn’t really played the piano again. But after seeing Kaori perform, something within him awakened again, and his love for playing the piano slowly came back.
18. Shinobu (Monogatari Series)
She might be tiny, but she has quite a mighty past!
Shinobu is an important character in the Monogatari Series. She didn’t really say much on her first appearance, but as the story unfolded, her past was slowly revealed.
Thanks to Araragi’s help, Shinobu started opening up. What started as a silent girl just hanging out in the background became an expressive, talkative, and even prideful partner of Araragi.
If you want to be on her good side, give her some donuts!
17. Yuri (Yuri on Ice)
Because of his gracefulness on the ice and petite height, Yuri Plisetsky is known as the Russian Fairy among ice skating enthusiasts.
But behind the graceful glides, spins, and jumps is an ice skater with a sour mood. He’s even nicknamed the Russian Punk!
But his aggressive nature towards Yuuri slowly tempered down, especially after the two bonded.
Yuri dearly loves his grandfather very much and is fond of cats and pirozhkis!
16. Maka (Soul Eater)
Up next is the serious, studious, and diligent weapon meister from Soul Eater – Maka Albarn!
As a weapon meister, Maka’s partner is Soul, a demon scythe. Maka strives to be a great meister like her mom, with a strong scythe weapon.
This is an act of rebellion to her dad, whose womanizing ways she disapproves of.
Atsushi Okubo, the mangaka of Soul Eater, said he created Maka as response to majorly male protagonists in Shonen Jump works.
He also partnered her with Soul to show equal partnership between a male and a female protagonist.
15. Reigen (Mob Psycho 100)
He might be a bit sus, but he does genuinely care for Mob. Up next is Arataka Reigen, owner of a psychic agency and a self-proclaimed great psychic!
In actuality, Reigen doesn’t have any powers.
However, through his gift of the gab and being a convincing conversationalist, he has tricked and manipulated customers of his psychic agency.
When he came upon Mob, he was eager to keep him as his employee due to Mob’s real powers.
He eventually does develop a proper mentor relationship with Mob.
14. Violet Evergarden (Violet Evergarden)
Due to being raised as a weapon for war, Violet had trouble navigating feelings and emotions. So when she was told “I love you” by her major at the end of a battle, it stunned her.
She then decided to become an Auto Memories Doll to better understand human emotions.
Violet’s tale is a beautiful and heartbreaking story about humanity, our emotions, and our capacity to feel.
13. Nanami (Jujutsu Kaisen)
He might seem stoic and aloof, but Nanami is one of the best jujutsu sorcerer mentors you could ever have.
Right after graduating Jujutsu High, he went to work as a salaryman.
Sometime later, he returned to his sorcerer roots and became a jujutsu sorcerer operating outside of the Tokyo campus.
His reserved nature, formal ways, and strict work ethic really reflect his salaryman history.
But Nanami has a softness to him as well, as shown when he protected Yuji.
12. All Might (My Hero Academia)
Never fear, All Might is here! The number one hero from My Hero Academia graces us with his mighty presence.
All Might wants to bring hope and smiles to everyone, which is why he always tries to have a smile on his face, no matter the circumstances.
Due to an intense battle with All For One, he sustained an injury that made his body weak.
He can now only keep up with his muscled form for short periods of time, but he keeps pushing the limit for the sake of others.
11. Kurapika (Hunter X Hunter)
The serious and driven member of Gon’s gang is definitely a part of our list!
Kurapika is the last survivor of his clan. They were all killed for their crimson eyes to sell in the black market.

Thanks to Gon, Killua, and Leorio, we sometimes see a softer side to Kurapika.
10. Saber (Fate Series)

Loid’s reason for becoming a spy is a noble one. He wants a world where children need not cry!
8. Sanji (One Piece)
With his kickass skills at cooking and fighting, Sanji enters our list with flair and a plate of fried rice.
Sanji is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates. After seeing Sanji offer food to a prisoner, Luffy decided to recruit him for his crew.
Sanji’s dream is to reach the place where all the Blue seas meet.
East Blue, West Blue, South Blue, and North Blue all converge in a place called All Blue.
This area is teeming with fish, plants, and other wildlife, which is an ingredient paradise for a cook like Sanji!
7. Erwin (Attack on Titan)

Where did the Titans come from? Are there other humans outside their home? What has happened to the rest of the world?
This pursuit for more knowledge led him to become a pragmatic leader.
He might’ve sacrificed some of his men and even himself when push came to shove, but it was all for the greater good.
6. Android 18 (Dragon Ball Z)
An enemy turned companion, and comrade is the story of our next blonde anime character. Give it up for Android 18!

Her twin brother, Android 17, was the 17th one.

3. Tsunade (Naruto)
A strong kunoichi, a great medical-nin, and a steadfast Hokage – we simply can’t skip the amazing Tsunade!
Because of what happened in her past, like losing loved ones in gruesome ways, Tsunade became a cynic and disillusioned about life.
She was even critical of the Hokage role.
It wasn’t until she met Naruto that she was reminded of how strong dreams can be. The words “Just because a dreamer dies doesn’t mean the dream dies as well” woke her up from her cynicism.
2. Naruto (Naruto)

And look where we are now. After all his trials and tribulations and his losses and gains, both in comrades and battles, he eventually became the Hero of the Hidden Leaf and the 7th Hokage! Quite inspirational.
1. Usagi (Sailor Moon)
And our top choice for best blonde anime character? It’s none other than the Sailor Guardian of love and justice – Usagi Tsukino or Sailor Moon!
When it comes to blonde anime characters, who could ever forget Usagi’s odango?
Her blonde hair is put up in twin tails, with the top portion twisted into buns.
Aside from her iconic hairstyle, Usagi’s personality is also memorable and inspiring.
She might be a bit childish and silly at times, but she is also optimistic, caring, and sees the good in others.
Usagi reminds young girls that it’s okay to be a bit goofy sometimes and that a pure and earnest heart is a strong one.
