When it comes to hire some great anime killers, this list has the ultimate best of them.
The characters on this list are killers: assassins, warmongers, serial killers, and would-be gods who paint the world red and give us the creeps. Check out the top 10 most deadly killer characters.
10. Annie Leonhart (Attack on Titan)
What makes Annie stand out as a ruthless killer in a world ravaged by giant, man-eating fiends? It’s not simply her intellect, revealed in and out of combat, as she bloodily and dispassionately dispatches legions of her comrades in arms.
What seals the deal for Annie as a stand out is that when she’s finally backed into a corner and asked to explain the motives behind her barbaric actions, she refuses to offer anyone even the simple relief or understanding, or an answer.
9. Zank (Akame ga Kill!)
Once an executioner for the Empire, Zank went rogue after being haunted by the voices of his victims. Zank works out his schizophrenia with wholesale slaughter, aided by his Imperial Arms Spectator, which gives him precognitive abilities.
8. Nui Harime (Kill la Kill)
The world of Kill la Kill is ruled by gangsters, warlords, and monsters, for whom might makes right. But strength alone isn’t enough to succeed.
You’ve got to have things like courage and determination… or, in Nui Harime’s case, pure unadulterated insanity. When the skies rain blood, it takes a special kind of crazy to whip out a parasol and laugh.
7. Yuno Gasai (Mirai Nikki)
At only 14 years of age, Yuno Gasai has amassed a warehouse’s worth of weapon proficiencies, able to kill with everything from toothpicks to tommy guns.
6. Shion Sonozaki (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
The village of Hinamizawa has an unfortunate secret: it’s home to a parasite-borne psychosis that causes violent delusions in those infected. Nobody catches it quite like Shion Sonozaki though.
Her disobedient, manipulative actions at school mark the beginning of a rampage that includes taser torture, crucifixion, and murder… all for a promise she made to a guy she barely knows.
