Top 10 Hardest to Kill Anime Characters

These folks simply refuse to lay down and die. Welcome to and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Hardest to Kill Anime Characters.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the heroes and villains in anime who are damn hard to put down. Whether they’re still alive and kicking or did end up kicking the bucket, as long as they have a tendency to cling to life no matter the odds, they’re liable for consideration! As you might have guessed, there’s gonna be some spoilers.

#10: C.C

“Code Geass” (2006-08)

When we first met this green-haired haired beauty, she was shot in the damned back, only to get back up again a couple of minutes later. As it happens, this so-called witch has been alive for numerous centuries, meeting thousands of grizzly deaths along the way, but managing to come back from them all, forever sewing the seeds of rebellion in times of crisis.

Her latest conquest was of course Lelouch vi Britannia, the man who would go on to become the masked symbol known as Zero. Well worth it, love.

#9: Mitty

“Made in Abyss” (2017)

We have never wanted a poor and innocent blob to die so much in our lives, if only for her to finally be at peace after suffering such overwhelming hardships. An orphaned girl turned experiment, Mitty’s exposure to the Curse of the Abyss melted her into a creature that could suffer endless amounts of trauma and yet still go on living. Desperate to save her friend from her immortal prison, Nanachi finally found a solution in the form of Reg and his incinerator. While we’re happy Mitty is no longer bound to such a painful form, seeing her reduced to ashes is hardly a comforting sight.

#8: Ash Ketchum

“Pokemon” (1997-)

You know, the idea of letting your 10 year old kid go out alone on an adventure sounds like bad parenting, but clearly miss Delia Ketchum knew something we didn’t about Ash’s stubborn ties to his corporeal form. Yes, this aspiring Pokemon master has eaten shit multiple times through out the series, only to somehow come back to life just a few scenes later. Even the newest incarnation of Ash has met his untimely end right at the beginning of his bloody adventure and rises again as if like Poke-Jesus.

#7: Korosensei

“Assassination Classroom” (2015-16)

Pay attention students, your lesson in murder is about to start. As an entity strong enough to fly at Mach 20 and even blow up the moon just to prove a point, it’s fair to say that Korosensei isn’t bluffing when he said he could destroy the planet if he chose to. Offering a class of rejected students the opportunity to try their luck while also acting as their teacher, this amalgamation of smiles and tentacles has shown to be such a hit with his class than when they do get the chance to land the finishing blow, they’re more than a little hesitant.

#6: Kyubey

“Puella Magi Madoka Magica” (2011)

No matter how many times you blow this little bastard to pieces, he always manages to find a way to come back. While he may look all kinds of adorable, Kyubey exists solely to trick innocent youths into signing contracts that’ll turn them into magical girls…who are then destined to either die or fall so far into despair they end up becoming terrifying monsters known as witches. Understandably, someone like Homura might want to unload an entire clip into him for his betrayal, but then he’d just come back and devour his own corpse to mock her. Aww.

#5: Hidan

“Naruto Shippuden” (2007-17)

Faith motherf**ker, do you speak it? Well Hidan does, and his zealotry has reward him with an immortal body that can keep functioning even after his limbs had been severed from his torso. As a loyal servant to the sadistic deity known as Jashin, Hidan was a lethal ninja in his own right and one of the deadlier members of the Akatsuki. He managed to ice Asuma with his blood soaked jutsu, and even when he was eventually blown to pieces, he was still very much alive. It might have been to his detriment though, can’t be that fun being buried alive.

#4: Saitama

“One Punch Man” (2015)

By this point we have no idea if there’s anyone out there strong enough to actually wound this guy, let alone put him six feet under. As the most powerful superhero in the universe, Saitama has never failed to best an enemy with but a single punch. Meteors, giants, intergalactic conquers, they’re all reduced to a stain in the wake of his ungodly fist. Sure, some foes manage to get one up on Saitama and strike first, but this is the guy who brushed off being thrown into the moon. We’d say it’s very unlikely he’ll ever meet his maker. Even if he does, he’ll probably end up punching him too…

#3: Ban

“The Seven Deadly Sins” (2014-15; 2018-)

Another day, another immortal, though in this case it happens to be a thief who gained everlasting life thanks to drinking some magic water…via the lips of a Loli-looking fairy queen. After losing his beloved Elaine, Ban became a member of the Seven Sins, the strongest knights in all of Britannia, where he more than lived up to his given vice of greed by stealing the lives of all who challenged him. Cocky and brash with a terrible choice in wardrobe, Ban’s immortality has only further cemented his swag.

#2: Zamasu

“Dragon Ball Super” (2015-)

Immortality comes somewhat naturally when you abuse the powers of the super dragon balls. As an apprentice of Universe 10’s Supreme Kai, Zamasu’s inflated ego and hatred towards mortals led him down a vicious path, one that involved him teaming up with himself thanks to a little time-travel. He may have succeeded in his plan of laying waste to humanity, and even been a match for the might of a Super Saiyan Blue Vegito, but not even the immortal body of a God was enough to withstand the force of Zeno.

#1: Kars

“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” (2012-16)

This Pillar Man’s power was so overwhelming that he could fall down a mountain, take a barrage of Hamon based attacks and even the full force of a cybernetic Nazi and still get up for a second round. Then he became the ultimate lifeform and…well let’s say we reached peak bizarreness with this one. Able to control all life on the planet and even withstand diving into an active volcano, the only reason Joseph Joestar managed to win the day was down to sheer dumb luck, as well as the fact not even the mind of someone like Kars can handle the vacuum of space.
