Top 10 Insane Anime Characters


OK, crazy. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the top ten insane anime characters.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the anime characters, both heroes and villains, who definitely have more than a few screws loose. We won’t be including any yandere girls this time as around, as we have our own list for them coming soon! Also, be on the lookout for a few spoilers!

#10: Mao

“Code Geass” (2006-08)
Honestly C.C, your choice in candidates for the Geass seems to be more miss than hit. Unable to control the power bestowed to him, Mao was slowly driven insane by his inability to stop hearing people’s thoughts all throughout his childhood, and over the years had grown into an immature yet sadistic individual. He tried to use these abilities to manipulate and kill our protagonists, but up against the likes of Lelouch Vi Britannia, all that madness unfortunately counts for nothing.

#9: Dr Franken Stein

“Soul Eater” (2008-09)
The clue is kind of in the name. A lecturer and powerful meister in his own right, Stein serves as a mentor figure to Maka and the others, and while he’s shown to deeply care for his students, his teaching methods do tend to drift towards the extreme side of things. However, there’s also a darkness to him. After being driven over the edge by the witch Medusa, Stein does go through a spell of sheer insanity that’s unsettling to behold.

#8: Broly

“Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Sayain” (1993)
By far one of the most imposing villains in the entire DBZverse, Broly lives for only one thing; killing Goku. Oh sorry, we meant – As an infant, Broly was subjected to Goku’s non-stop crying, and went slightly mad as a result. His anger caused him to transform into the Legendary Super Sayain, a being strong enough to knock both Goku and Vegeta down to size. He may be something of a one trick pony, but as far as world-destroying rage machines go, Broly is definitely the craziest.

#7: Hisoka

“Hunter x Hunter” (2011-14)
All types can apply to become Hunters, just as long as they have the ability to overcome obstacles no regular mortal could. This includes psychotic magicians dressed as jesters who get aroused by strong opponents. With a lethal set of tricks up his sleeves, Hisoka is obsessed with fighting and killing those he deems worthy, going as far as sparing Gon and Killua in the hope they would mature into powerful adversaries, even infiltrating the Phantom Troupe just to have a shot at squaring off against their boss. He’s a skilled Nen user whose bloodlust and creepy attraction to combat will make your skill crawl.

#6: Mikami

“Death Note” (2006-07)
Light Yagami sure knows how to pick ‘em. In order to maintain his secrecy as Kira, Light hands possession of the Death Note to Mikami, a devoted follower more than capable of dispensing what he believes to be justice. Fiercely loyal to the man he believes to be God, not only does he eliminate those unfit to call themselves followers with some of the most awesome penmanship skills in all of anime, but is also something of a lunatic. When Light is finally exposed and reveals he’s the furthest thing from a God, Mikami is so distraught that he ended his own life by impaling himself with his own pen.

#5: Hidan

“Naruto: Shippuden” (2007-)
The members of the Akatsuki are some of the most dangerous criminals in the shinobi world, but by far the most downright crazy of them all is this zealot. Aside from having one hell of an affinity for swearing, Hidan is essentially immortal due to his faith to the deity known as Jashin. Through bloody rituals, Hidan can literally lose his head and still keep on fighting. With his signature three-bladed sickle, arsenal of curse-type jutsu, this fanatic quite literally spits in the face of death on a daily basis.

#4: Claire Stanfield

“Baccano!” (2007)
Nicknamed Vino due to the blood-soaked remains of his victims, Claire is a freelance assassin who happens to have a rather twisted philosophy. He believes himself to be the one constant in the universe, that he can’t be killed despite being just a mortal man, he has no qualms about butchering people yet goes out of his way to protect innocents and insists mercy is a quality that only the strong possess. Considering his performance aboard the Flying Pussyfoot, we’re kind of inclined to believe him.

#3: Junko Enoshima

“Danganronpa: The Animation” (2013)
Now we’re getting into the real lunatics. Despite being revered as a fashion model and having everything she could ever want, boredom and psychosis led to Junko falling off the deep end and setting up the Mutual Killing Game, trapping herself and fellow students in a school where grizzly executions become commonplace. While also posing as the mascot Monokuma, she gets her kicks by spreading death and despair among her peers.

#2: Juuzou Suzuya

“Tokyo Ghoul” Series (2014-15)
Unlike many of the other entries on our list, this is a character we just feel sorry for, and whose madness is a result of physical and mental agony. After being brutally tortured by his adoptive ghoul mother, Juuzou’s grasp on right and wrong became incredibly warped. As such, he translates his frustrations into blind ugly violence against any ghoul who comes in his way. Sure he’s a total nutcase, but Juuzou’s budding friendship with his partner, Yukinori Shinohara, leads us to believe there’s hope for this little fella.

Before we reveal out number one pick, here are a few honourable mentions.

Yomotsu Hirasaka
“Future Diary” (2011-12)

Rumi Hidaka
“Perfect Blue” (1999)

Shinkawa Kyouji
“Sword Art Online II” (2014)

#1: Rena Ryuga

“Higurashi When The Cry” (2006)
In a community where a sacrificial deity, curses and multiple, rewinding timelines run rampant, the scariest thing just might be this adorable would-be serial killer. Rendered unstable by the Hinamizawa syndrome coupled with her strong belief of the curse, Rena is known to have bouts of violent insanity, which more often than not end with someone getting killed. What’s most unsettling is how she can be as sweet as can be in one timeline, only for her to hack someone to pieces with a giant cleaver in the next.
