Top 50 Best Yandere Anime Characters Of All Time

 Kay SebastianKay-Updated June 5, 2022


Yandere characters.

 

Yandere. While this anime character archetype doesn't exactly have a definition, we do have a general understanding of what it means.

 

Basically, a character who goes the extra mile to cause physical harm to someone for the sake of their loved ones.

 

Seems pretty crazy right? But apparently, there are a ton of such crazy characters filled in the medium.

 

And I know you all love them as well. Therefore, I decided to note them all down in one place.

 

That's why we are here. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time to take matters into our own hands.

 

Allow me to tell you about the Top 50 Yandere Characters. And make sure that you are safe.

 

So grab your bulletproof jacket, lay down on your couch and let's dive deep into the list.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

 

 

50. Lindo (Dance With Devils)

 

Lindo

 

Well well, looks like we are starting pretty handsome here, ladies and gentlemen. The first man on our list of Yandere is none other than Lindo Tachibana.

 

He is one of the main characters in the anime we know by the name Dance With Devils.

 

He is also regarded as the brother of Ritsuka Tachibana. And let's just say that this brotherhood is far beyond control.

 

He is a man who will do anything to protect his sister and as an exorcist, his strength is nothing to make fun of.

 

He can burn anyone in half if they try to go towards Ritsuka. And that's why he is such a Yandere.

 

 

 

49. Mika Hirama (Durarara)

 

Mika Hirama

 

Oh boy, a dangerous man has arrived on our list. To be honest, everyone on this list is dangerous.

 

However, this one is a specific case you know. Mika Hirama is one of the lead characters in the anime Durarara.

 

And my oh my, isn't he crazy. His insanity seems to have no levels and he stands as one of the most lethal characters in the show.

 

Moreover, he is here for Seiji, another character in the show and that's what makes him so interesting.

 

The way the story unfolds between these two characters is going to be a mind-blowing experience.

 

And you can't beat that.

 

 

 

48. Haru (My Little Monsters)

 

Haru

 

From a fantastic anime comes a fantastic Yandere. Ladies and Gentlemen, let's drive our attention towards Haru.

 

He is one of the lead characters in the anime My Little Monsters and is known for being where he isn't supposed to be.

 

Surprising others with his appearance yet passion, Haru is a normal being at first. However, soon his caring and loving side take over and his ways of dealing with someone he loves are so possessive that the one who is receiving all his care won't even think about it.

 

He or she will automatically dismiss it. That's how strong Haru's admiration is.

 

 

 

47. Asakura (Melancholy Of Suzumiya Haruhi)

 

Asakura

 

Yet another character from another fine anime, ladies and gentlemen. And I think that we can all agree that just for once, she was our crush.

 

Right? Asakura Ryoko is one of the lead characters in the Melancholy Of Suzumiya Haruhi series.

 

And she might look human at first, however, the reality is a bit off. She is a calm and happy individual at first.

 

However, soon enough, her demon form takes place and that's where things get very interesting.

 

Makes me want to remark on her as the Yandere beast. However, I am afraid she might end up ending me.

 

 

 

46. Rena (Higurashi: When They Cry)

 

Rena

 

You might look at her in the morning and think that she is the most adorable being on the planet.

 

However, be warned, my friend. Because this cutie pie can take a big bite from you.

 

And you won't even realize it. She is one of the lead characters in the anime, Higurashi: When They Cry.

 

And if you know this series, you would also know that the characters here are insane.

 

Rena specifically is known for being the cute one. However, when she is against someone, trying to protect her prized possession, she is a completely different monster.

 

And she must not be crossed during that.

 

 

 

45. Shouko Kirishima (Baka to Test - Summoning The Beasts)

 

Shouko Kirishima

 

Initially, you might think of her as a simple girl. However, she will show you a bigger side to her when you try to get close to Yuuji.

 

Shouko Kirishima is one of the notable female characters in Baka to Test - Summoning The Beasts.

 

And I won't lie, she is quite beautiful. In the anime, she is a humble and self conserved person.

 

However, her love for Yuuji is what makes her compatible with this list. And that's also why she is here at all.

 

Shouko is dangerous and can show you some of the worst acts while taking care of her love, Yuuji.

 

Therefore, be on your guard all the time while dealing with her.

 

 

 

44. Medusa (Soul Eater)

 

Medusa

 

Even if you are new to anime, Medusa wouldn't be an uncommon name for you, right?

 

Well, if your answer is yes then make sure that you pay attention to this entry.

 

Because the Medusa we will be talking about today is much different than those you have seen before.

 

Medusa is one of the notable characters from the Soul Eater anime series. And man, she is not only hot but also dangerous.

 

She might seem simple and kind at first but later, she becomes manipulative and heartless.

 

And that's why she is here. A girl who doesn't feel any guilt for doing all the wrong to achieve her goal?

 

Yes!

 

 

 

43. Revy (Black Lagoon)

 

Revy

 

I mean, come on guys! Revy is bound to be on this list, am I right?

 

A girl who is known within the anime community as one who does the best is here.

 

And not gonna lie, I am very happy about it. Revy or Rebecca is the main female in the anime series called Black Lagoon.

 

And within the anime community, Revy is known for being dangerous. I mean just look at her.

 

She might seem like a normal person at first but soon enough, she goes on to be the most badass female you have ever seen.

 

Guns are nothing but toys to her and so, she will destroy you instantly without any problem.

 

And that is more likely to happen if you are against Revy's love.

 

 

 

42. Ayase Aragaki (Oreimo)

 

Ayase Aragaki

 

This girl right here is a cutie. And you can't deny that. However, this cutie may turn into a dangerous woman.

 

And you can't deny that either. Ayase is one of the lead characters in the anime Oreimo.

 

And she has her priorities set. She thinks that anime is the reason why a ton of people are becoming criminals and so, she doesn't like it.

 

Moreover, she is sweet and friendly at first but as soon as you take a look at someone she cherishes, you are a goner.

 

Because then, she is going to show you her horrible side. And I know you wouldn't wanna see that.

 

 

 

41. Seijuurou (Kuroko no Basuke)

 

Seijuurou

 

This man right here is not only Handsome but also devastating. From one of the most popular sports anime of all time, we have Seijuurou.

 

Seijuurou is one of the main characters in the show and throughout it, he has developed two personalities for himself.

 

He is focused on winning and so, anyone who isn't a "Winner" or doesn't have his respect cannot look him in the eyes.

 

And that's why he is here. He is sweet and humble on the outside but from the inside, he only cares about those who deserve his respect.

 

And that's a rare occurrence, I must say. Therefore, beware of him.

 

 

 

40. Nadeko Sengoku (Bakemonogatari)

 

Nadeko Sengoku

 

The Monogatari girls have a ton of characteristics going on for themselves. And Nadeko just so happens to be one of them.

 

However, her characteristics are a bit more interesting than the others. She is one of the lead characters in the show and has a very adorable appearance on the outside.

 

However, soon enough, you will start to see her demolishing side when her expressions don't become affirmative no matter what you do.

 

And that's why you start to get concerned about anything and everything regarding her. And that's also when you will see her new self.

 

 

39. Belarus (Hetalia: Axis Powers)

 

Belarus

 

Well, I hope you get an incredible lover. I wish you the best. However, I hope that you don't get a lover as incredible as Belarus.

 

Because that will be harmful to you in the end. She is one of the notable females in the show and is in love with Russia.

 

And no, I am not talking about Russia as a country, I am talking about Russia, Belarus' brother.

 

She is in love with her and so, she will do anything to make sure that Russia stays by her side.

 

And if he doesn't, then those who are asking Russia will be punished. A punishment that will be remembered forever.

 

 

38. Hotogi Shirayuki (Aria The Scarlet Ammo)

 

Hotogi Shirayuki

 

Well, looks like you need to keep your guard up here, weebs. Because this girl right here may seem ideal at first but has a completely unique side to offer as well.

 

Hotogi Shirayuki is one of the lead females in the anime we call Aria The Scarlet Ammo.

 

However, what makes her so special is the fact that she has a perfect image in the minds of the viewers.

 

She is an overachiever with all her feats in place. However, when someone is close to Kinji, her incredible self gets taken over by her jealous self and soon enough, we get to see a monster that is going to devour her.

 

 

37. Alois (Black Butler)

 

Alois

 

It would be great if you stay away from this man. For once, you wouldn't even know what he is going to do in the next five seconds.

 

And you wouldn't wanna face his mood swings, at all. Alois is one of the lead male characters in the anime Black Butler.

 

And man, isn't he dangerous? He is just 14 so you might not look at him as a major threat.

 

However, when you get to know that he is so violent and had a close relationship with Claude, you are going to doubt his personality.

 

For someone as young as him, violence isn't a great option. However, his mood swings don't care about that and so, he does what he wishes to.

 

 

36. Konishi (Charlotte)

 

Konishi

 

I do believe that Charlotte is one of the anime that people should watch as fast as they can.

 

However, I also believe that people should also keep a keen eye on the characters in the show.

 

And one of them is Konishi. She is one of the notable characters from the series and also one of the insane ones as well.

 

Her insanity is first portrayed when she tries to attack Ayumi for some other guy.

 

And that's where her Yandere part comes in. For someone as harmless looking as Konishi, a weapon is nothing but useless.

 

However, within the anime, she is a completely different story.

 

 

35. Akane Hiyama (Renai Boukun)

 

Akane Hiyama

 

She would stab anyone and everyone who stood in her path. And that's why she is so dangerous.

 

Akane Hiyama is one of the lead characters in the anime Renai Boukun. However, she is quite a cutter when it comes to love.

 

She can stab the one she loves and also the one who loves the one whom she loves.

 

And her personality is just as complex as the last statement. Therefore, you can be certain that you need to maintain 100 km from her.

 

Or else, death might be on the horizon for you.

 

 

34. Sekai Saionji (School Days)

 

Sekai Saionji

 

School Days is definitely an interesting anime if you ask me. Not only in terms of its narrative but its characters as well.

 

And that's why Sekai is here, ladies and gentlemen. She is one of the lead females in the show and man, isn't she dangerous.

 

At the start of the show, nothing seems to be going wrong. However, soon enough, things take a turn for the worst and Sekai turns into someone we couldn't have imagined.

 

I think we can all agree that she is quite intriguing and as an anime character, she is quite remarkable as well.

 

Watch School Days to know what I am talking about.

 

 

33. Shuka Karin (Darwin's Game)

 

Shuka Karin

 

Shuka Karin might not be a known character to many of you. However, things will change soon for sure.

 

She is one of the lead females in the anime Darwin's Game and oh boy, isn't she incredible.

 

She is the one who has the strength to defeat anyone within her eye range.

 

And so, Shuka can be just as dangerous as anyone else on this list. However, Shuka has the power to destroy anyone and everyone.

 

Moreover, she starts to develop feelings for a certain someone. And so, she becomes even more lethal than she already is.

 

 

32. Kurenai Rin (Big Order)

 

Kurenai Rin

 

Rin isn't exactly in the realm of Love. She is more into the hate side of things.

 

However, the killing factor is true for sure. Kurenai Rin is one of the lead females in the anime Big Order.

 

However, her obsession with Eiji is what makes her qualified for this list. She doesn't love him.

 

However, she definitely wants to be the one who kills him. And that's where the stretch of being Yandere comes in.

 

Make sure that you are not one of her targets. Or else, Kurenai will tear you apart and you won't be able to resist any of that.

 

Be safe my friend.

 

 

31. Kaede Fuyou (Shuffle)

 

Kaede Fuyou

 

Many look at her as one of the most remarkable Yandere in all of anime.

 

Are you one of them? I can see you being one for sure. Kaede Fuyou is one of the lead females in Shuffle and she has a very sweet personality going for her.

 

Nothing outstanding for anyone other than Rin. Rin is the one whom she used to blame for her parents' death.

 

However, in atonement for her torture of Rin, she cares for him now. However, this love and care can take some serious turns faster than we might think.

 

And this is why she is here on our list. I must say, her Yandere nature is quite captivating.

 

 

30. Minatsuki Takami (Deadman Wonderland)

 

Minatsuki Takami

 

Have you watched Deadman Wonderland? Well, if you did then you would most likely be aware of this Yandere.

 

Minatsuki is one of the lead characters in the anime and she is very good at hiding her true nature.

 

Better than your ex. She shows herself to be a calm and humble person who doesn't bother anyone.

 

However, it doesn't matter in the long run. She is a woman of terror and sadism.

 

She will love to see anyone in pain and torture. And that's why she is here.

 

A woman who finds pleasure in the pain of others. And that's a horrifying trait.

 

 

29. Kotonoha Katsura (School Days)

 

Kotonoha Katsura

 

Well, I can say something for certain. And it's that Kotonaha Katsura is a character of her own kind.

 

She is one of the lead characters in School Days and oh my, she is quite a dangerous person.

 

She is quiet, beautiful, and shy at first. However, soon we get to see her true nature in the show.

 

I won't share with details since that would make it a spoiler. However, if you are watching School Days right now, keep an eye on her.

 

You are going to witness something completely new. And make sure that you don't keep any expectations.

 

Because if you do, then they are bound to be shattered.

 

 

28. Yuka Minase (11 eyes)

 

Yuka Minase

 

Yuka is one of the most captivating picks for Yandere. Because she has an unrealistic power going on for her.

 

And that power is what makes her so dangerous. Yuka is one of the lead characters in 11 eyes.

 

And oh my, she is quite an intriguing being. She is attempting a happy life with the boy of her heart.

 

However, doing that is going to be a task in her life. But with that "Power" that she possesses, she is going to do some horrible stuff and we must beware of it.

 

So yeah, she is an amazing Yandere character to take a good look at.

 

 

27. Mana Ouma (Guilty Crown)

 

Mana Ouma

 

Mana Ouma. A special case on our list, ladies and gentlemen. And oh my, isn't she captivating.

 

She is one of the lead characters in the anime Guilty Crown. And man, she is quite a messed-up character.

 

Unlike many other characters on our list, she is someone who changed over time. In other words, she wasn't insane for her love interest from the start.

 

Instead, she was exposed to a certain virus and that changed her behavior forever. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is why she is being treated so differently.

 

Mana Ouma is a freak and you can't beat that.

 

 

26. Nina Einstein (Code Geass)

 

Nina Einstein

 

Well, that's a great name, isn't it? The next character on our list, ladies and gentlemen, is a woman of her own standards.

 

Allow me to tell you about Nina Einstein. She is one of the side characters in the anime Code Geass.

 

And yes, she is just like you are expecting her to be. Smart and bookworm.

 

These two words will pop into your head as you try to contemplate her behavior.

 

However, she turns into a complete freak as soon as she talks about Euphemia. And her admiration for her is what makes her eligible for this list.

 

Let's just say that things are going to get interesting.

 

 

25. Mion Sonozaki (Higurashi When They Cry)

 

Mion Sonozaki

 

One of the Sonozaki sisters has made her way to the list, ladies and gentlemen.

 

And I think this comes as no surprise since she is part of quite a messy show.

 

Mion Sonozaki is one of the lead characters in the anime Higurashi When They Cry.

 

The name itself will tell you that things are not going to go too well.

 

And soon enough, when the series will progress, you will also see why murder and killing of loved ones are going to happen in this show.

 

Mion will be having a major contribution to that activity. So if you haven't watched the anime yet, then go ahead and give it a try.

 

Keep your eyes on Mion as well.

 

 

24. Anna Nishikinomiya (Shimoneta)

 

Anna Nishikinomiya

 

Well, a Cultured character from a Cultured anime. Ladies and Gentlemen, respect must be bestowed.

 

Anna Nishikinomiya is the main character of Shimoneta anime. Now Shimoneta is a series that challenges a ton of troupes.

 

And Yandere is no exception to it. By making us question the definition of it, word by word, Anna Nishikinomiya manages to just fit in and make a place for herself.

 

And you need to watch the show to know why she fits in. Or else, it might feel out of place.

 

So go and watch the cultured anime and be blessed with it.

 

 

23. Rolo Lamperouge (Code Geass)

 

Rolo Lamperouge

 

Woah, would you look at that! A character from Code Geass. Now that's interesting. It's not like we have had someone from Code Geass before.

 

Jokes apart, it's time that we dive into this character. Let's have a look. Rolo is one of the lead characters in the anime and boy, isn't he notorious.

 

He is way too obsessed with his brother Lelouche. And this obsession is pure brotherly love.

 

However, Rolo tells us that something as pure as brotherly love can also be a reason for someone else's death.

 

Wanna know who he kills? Well, then there's only one way to find out.

 

 

22. Toma (Amnesia)

 

Toma

 

Woah would you look at that? I believe that it is time we get another male character on the list.

 

And trust me when I say this, these guys are rare. Toma is one of the lead characters in the anime we call Amnesia.

 

And I can say one thing for certain. And it's that Toma is quite a hot individual.

 

With his golden hair and black-orange aesthetic, this man manages to take the hearts of those around him without breaking a sweat.

 

However, his Yandere nature is insane. And when he is in love with the main heroine, he does some of the nastiest things you can think of.

 

Yeah, not so attractive now.

 

 

21. Kanato Sakamaki (Diabolik Lovers)

 

Kanato Sakamaki

 

Another Man! That's quite unexpected. But maybe we should Cherish these few moments where we get to see male Yandere characters.

 

Who knows when the next time we might see them. Kanato is one of the side characters in the show Diabolik Lovers.

 

However, what makes this show so special is that everyone in this anime is messed up.

 

Kanato specifically is facing issues with his mother and those are one of the biggest factors driving him insane.

 

I mean, oh my God. He had been through quite a lot. And so has been his knife.

 

Through quite a lot of people.

 

 

20. Megumi Shimizu (Shiki)

 

Megumi Shimizu

 

You know, Yanderes might seem like a good idea to you when you come across Megumi.

 

Because most of the Yandere on this list are humans. Megumi is not. She is a zombie or vampire.

 

And that's another touch of craziness in her character. She is one of the lead characters in the anime called Shiki.

 

And wouldn't you know it, Megumi is quite beautiful. However, apart from her Pink appearance, she is quite a purple character.

 

In other words, she might seem harmless at first. However, the moment she gets the chance, she destroys everyone.

 

Literally.

 

 

19. Yukako Yamagishi (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure)

 

Yukako Yamagishi

 

Oh my Goodness. We have a JoJo character here, ladies and gentlemen! Let's go! And now I will prove to you why Yandere is a JoJo reference.

 

Yukako is one of the lead characters in the series and the creator of Jojo claimed her to be the opposite of "Moe"?

 

In other words, her personality was made to stand against the cute character type. And that is one of the many reasons why Yukako is looked upon as the first Yandere character.

 

Oh yeah, told you Yandere was just JoJo's reference. And not only that but it is also claimed that the schoolgirl stereotype of the Yandere character has also shown up because of Yukako.

 

So yeah, you can rest assured, she was remarkable.

 

 

18. Ringo Oginome (Mawaru Penguindrum)

 

Ringo Oginome

 

Ringo Oginome isn't a great contender for a Yandere archetype. However, that changes when one of the scenes shows up.

 

She is one of the lead characters in the anime Mawaru Penguindrum. And initially, she seems like a normal girl.

 

Just minding her business. However, when her sister dies, she tries to take her place so that fate will go in her favor as well.

 

However, during one of the habits, she ends up doing something horrible. I won't spoil you for any reason but just remember, she is dangerous.

 

And if you are watching Mawaru Penguindrum today, then keep an eye on her.

 

 

17. Haruna Niekawa (Durarara)

 

Haruna Niekawa

 

You will know she is a matter of concern right after looking at her face.

 

And I don't blame you for that at all! Haruna is one of the side characters in Durarara.

 

And I won't lie, she is quite a mess. Just look at her design. A damaged neck and glowing red eyes.

 

Not gonna lie, that's not the most favorable appearance. And that's why she is a danger even before you know her.

 

However, when you do end up knowing her, things start to take turns for the worst.

 

And I will say this for sure, her love is lethal. And it is also very quick to happen.

 

Therefore, pray that you don't end up being one of her crushes.

 

 

16. Balder Hringhorni (Kamigami No Asobi)

 

Balder Hringhorni

 

Well, if Yandere Zombie didn't seem dangerous enough to you then about this. A Yandere God.

 

A God of Destruction with that. Yeah, now that's some real tension, right? Too bad he is on our list now.

 

And his name is Balder Hringhorn. He is one of the lead characters in Kamigami No Asobi.

 

And now some of you would have already understood why I called him a God.

 

He is a God of light but at times, he can be a God of Destruction as well.

 

Soon enough, he goes on for a battle. And let's just say that battle with a God isn't going to be a harmless experience for anyone.

 

 

15. Shion Sonozaki (Higurashi)

 

Shion Sonozaki

 

Well, wouldn't you know it, this green-haired beauty is here on our list. And I won't lie, I was shocked when I first saw her true self.

 

Shion is one of the lead characters in the anime Higurashi. And wouldn't you know it, she is quite a mess.

 

Initially, you will think that she is just as normal as someone gets. Nothing extravagant.

 

Just two sisters living their life together. However, soon enough, we see a side to her that isn't seen by anyone.

 

And that's why she is here on this list. Blood is about to be splatted on her face very soon.

 

And I hope you are ready for it.

 

 

14. Mizuki Himeji (Baka To Test)

 

Mizuki Himeji

 

It is interesting to see a fun character on the list. However, a Yandere is still a Yandere.

 

And so, we have to be on our guard nonetheless. Mizuki Himeji is one of the lead characters in the anime Baka To Test.

 

Therefore, she stands out even more in the series. Moreover, as the show progresses, Mizuki gets better and better and becomes even more attractive.

 

She doesn't go everywhere carrying a gun to kill anyone who talks to her crush.

 

However, in the grand scheme of things, her behavior does stand out a lot. And that's why Mizuki is here on our list, weebs.

 

 

13. Satou (Happy Sugar Life)

 

Satou

 

Satou is one of the lead characters in the anime Happy Sugar Life. An outstanding feature about Satou is that she is one of the rare Yanderes who ends up getting the guy they want.

 

She loves Shio Koube. And that's a fact set in stone. However, within the anime, Shio has been living a dark life.

 

Away from everyone, inside his house. And Satou doesn't agree to it. Therefore, to achieve what she wants, she goes ahead and uses nasty tricks like blackmail and does horrible acts like murder and arson.

 

And after all her efforts, in the end, she does end up with her man.

 

And that's a great feat if you ask me.

 

 

12. Kurumi Tokisaki (Date A Live)

 

Kurumi Tokisaki

 

Yandere yet Waifu. I must say, it is rare to see some Waifu standard Yandere on our list, weebs.

 

However, Kurumi has managed to make her way anyway. So I guess we can rest for a bit now.

 

She is one of the main characters in the Date A Live series. And oh my God, isn't she amazing.

 

I mean just based on her looks and self-presentation, you can be certain that she is a girl of value.

 

She isn't some random female character who does nothing in her show. She kills. And very brutally with that.

 

And that's why she is here on our list. If you are into Yandere and want a good Waifu then make sure to keep your eyes on Kurumi.

 

 

11. Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

 

Levi Ackerman

 

Yeah yeah, I know! I know! Wait a bit. Let me explain. I know most of you are questioning why Levi is here.

 

I mean, he is not a Yandere, right? He doesn't have any love interest so how can he be here?

 

Well, that's because he is someone who will kill anyone and everyone who stands against those whom he cherishes.

 

I know I am stretching the Yandere definition here a bit. However, one of the most popular features of Levi is that he respects everyone who fights alongside him.

 

And so, he will destroy anyone who will try to harm his team. Even a scratch is worthy of death.

 

And that one feature, backed by Levi's movie is why Mr. Ackerman is here. Don't consider him if you are strict with the definition but I do think he deserves a mention.

 

 

10. Touko Fukawa (Danganronpa)

 

Touko Fukawa

 

Well, well. Looks like we are in the Top 10 ladies and gentlemen. A new segment with the finest Yanderes in the market.

 

And I believe that it would be great if we start this segment with none other than Touka Fukawa.

 

She is one of the lead characters in the Danganronpa franchise and oh boy, isn't she interesting.

 

You see, the entire premise of Danganronpa revolves around people trying to kill each other.

 

And Touko gets affected with a split personality. And it is her split personality who is ready to kill anyone who touches her crush.

 

Therefore Touka Fukawa is standing here on our list.

 

 

9. Hisoka Morow (Hunter x Hunter)

 

Hisoka Morow

 

Does this guy need an introduction? I don't think so. It is more likely for introduction to need him.

 

Oh yeah, he is THAT Savage. Hisoka is one of the main characters in the Hunter x Hunter series and man, he is of a different breed.

 

He is a pedophile who will do anything in his power to achieve what he wishes to and for whom he wishes.

 

And this desire to go any distance just so you can lay your hand on that one person is what makes him such a Yandere.

 

He will kill you if you interfere with his love interest. And his Joker-like appearance will make your death, even more horrifying.

 

I hope you are not scared.

 

 

8. Esdeath (Akame Ga Kill)

 

Esdeath

 

She is a Waifu. She is a hottie. But most importantly, she is a villain.

 

And that's why she is so interesting. Esdeath is one of the lead characters in the Akame Ga Kill series.

 

And I would say that she is very popular amongst fans. Not just because of her beauty but also because of her Yandere nature.

 

The power, wisdom, and courage to annihilate anyone who comes in the path of you and your love are insane.

 

And that's where Esdeath resides. I won't expose your love interest yet. However, for now, I can say that she will go some unreal miles to make sure that her love is saved.

 

That's how insane she is.

 

 

7. Senjogahara Hitagi (Bakemonogatari)

 

Senjogahara Hitagi

 

Monogatari has a ton of amazing female characters. But the lead is still the lead.

 

And therefore, she is still fantastic. Hitagi Senjougahara is the main female character in the Monogatari series with her first appearance being in the Bakemonogatari installment.

 

And oh boy, isn't she a troublesome creature. She starts to take action instantly in the show.

 

And initially, she is focused on killing the guy who ends up being her boyfriend.

 

Alright, that's a good start. Anyway, things start to take turns and soon enough, Hitagi turns into a great girl.

 

She will still kill anyone who messes up with her boyfriend. However, at least now, she won't do it for just talking.

 

 

6. Lucy (Elfen Lied)

 

Lucy

 

Lucy. A name that gives a shiver to a ton of fans reading this. Why? Because of how dangerous she is.

 

Lucy is the main female in Elfen Lied. And oh boy, isn't she lethal. I mean, the entire premise of the show revolves around her being the destroyer of Humanity.

 

However, soon she also falls in love which means that humanity's destroyer will now be in an obsession with someone.

 

And I won't say much but I will say one thing for sure. And it's that she is going to be havoc.

 

If you are watching the Elfen Lied series, you need to keep an eye on her.

 

She would be going to the limits of Yandere. And it would be horrifying to see that happen.

 

 

5. Misa Amane (Death Note)

 

Misa Amane

 

Misa Amane is probably the first Yandere for us. You know, that's because, for most of us, Death Note was the first anime.

 

And to be honest, I am happy that Misa was my first Yandere experience. Misa Amane is the main female in the Death Note franchise and is in absolute love with Light.

 

This is not a spoiler because Misa literally confesses to Light right after their first meeting.

 

So yeah, don't worry about spoilers. What you do need to worry about is Misa herself.

 

Because let me warn you, if you are any close to Light, you are bound to experience Misa's anger.

 

And that will be lethal. Because Death Note is a strong weapon.

 

 

4. Shuu Tsukiyama (Tokyo Ghoul)

 

Shuu Tsukiyama

 

This man right here is a man of Culture. So much so that he likes a boy and his scented handkerchief?

 

What? Anyway, Shuu Tsukiyama is one of the lead characters in the anime Tokyo Ghoul.

 

And I won't lie, he is quite a mess. I mean, in the first season, he goes to a bathroom and sniffs on a boys blood dropped handkerchief.

 

Man, that's some other level of obsession. But that's why he is so high on this list.

 

It is this insanity that makes Yandere so special. And for someone like him to exist, it is a matter of privilege for the Yandere community if you ask me.

 

He is quite intriguing for sure.

 

 

3. Mikasa Ackerman (Attack On Titan)

 

Mikasa Ackerman

 

Woah. I am sure that many of you wouldn't have seen her coming. However, I am also sure that now that you think about it, she makes a ton of sense.

 

Mikasa Ackerman is one of the main characters in the Attack On Titan series. And I won't lie, she is quite a trouble for anyone.

 

She has the strength to kill basically all of us without breaking a sweat. Being from the Ackerman blood definitely gives her an advantage.

 

And with her prowess and expertise, Mikasa is an absolute monster. If you ask her to kill the entire humanity just to save Eren, there's a very good chance she would do it.

 

And that's why she is some insane level Yandere. Oh hell yeah!

 

 

2. Griffith (Berserk)

 

Griffith

 

For runner-up, we have the legendary warrior himself, Griffith. This man is a beast when it comes to combat and a master with his Charisma at his disposal.

 

However, just like all the characters on this list, this man also admired someone. Or rather, it was something from someone.

 

He admired Guts and his Dream in the series. And therefore, Griffith went to a new world filled with demons and eventually, becomes one himself.

 

He was known as the Falcon of Light but now his own group hates him and he did some hideous acts to achieve that tag.

 

Soon enough, he went to a path he can't return from and that's what makes him so amazing.

 

 

1. Yuno Gasai (Mirai Nikki)

 

Yuno Gasai

 

And for the number one spot, we have The Queen Of Yandere, Yuno Gasai. But I just want to ask you, are you surprised?

 

Seriously, is anyone surprised to see Yuno on the first spot? No! Because she deserves it!

 

I mean think about it, if you are the one who popularized an entire category of anime characters, then I believe that you do deserve respect in that category.

 

She is one of the lead females in the Mirai Nikki series and has an almost perfect Yandere nature.

 

She kills and does some of the most hideous acts just for the sake of her loved one and that's amazing for a Yandere.

 

Most probably, she is the one who made YOU know about the Yandere archetype and made you search for this list.

 

She is a strong female character who became a strong Waifu all because of her Yandere characteristics.

 

And that's why Yuno Gasai is at the top spot on our list. So there you have it, weebs.

 

These were the Top 50 Yandere Anime Characters for you. I hope you are still safe and sound after witnessing so much insanity.

 

And found at least one Yandere character you didn't know about. Thanks a lot for reading and until next time, Sayonara!
