Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Anime Characters With Pink Hair

Tuesday's Top 5

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a colour list and I actually struggled a bit with 5 males I liked with pink hair. The female list which will come out next week was definitely easier to come up with. That said, there are some interesting characters on the list below and as always I’d love to know who your picks would be for male anime characters with pink hair. I kind of went for characters that are important to their story and really rock the pink hair colour.

Please note, there will be spoilers below.

Number 5: Hikaru (Ouran High School Host Club)


Okay, right from the start I am cheating here because Hikaru does not normally have pink hair. Yet, for one episode of Ouran High School Host Club, after a fight between the twins seemingly triggered by an innocuous comment by Haruhi, the twins dye their hair blue and pink. I have to admit, I kind of liked the look and kind of wished they’d kept it going for the rest of the season.

Number 4: Zange Natsum (Inu X Boku SS)


There’s something super-cute and simultaneously super-creepy about Zange. He see’s far too much and isn’t above manipulating others for his own entertainment. That said, he certainly marches to the beat of his own drummer and provides some of the best scenes in Inu x Boku SS so despite his more questionable tendencies he became one of my favourite characters.

Number 3: Hisoka (Hunter x Hunter)


I still haven’t decided if I like Hisoka as a character or not. He’s incredibly creepy but he adds a lot to the story and he has some great moments. Plus, you have to admit he’s got a style all of his own and I really couldn’t imagine him with any other hair colour other than pink. He’s certainly earned himself a spot on this list even if I feel like running the other direction.

Number 2: Alice Color (Sunday Without God)


Alice Color only shows up in the final arc of Sunday Without God (though is in the OP from the beginning) and while he’s a fairly stoic character he is also very cool. Driven and determined to free his town from its endless loop, even when he believes that he’s going to die to do it, his story is one of the best in Sunday Without God.

Number 1: Natsu (Fairy Tail)


Okay, if it was a question of my favourite character in Fairy Tail, Natsu wouldn’t get much of a look in. Despite some pretty cool dragon themed powers and a fiery personality, I don’t really enjoy Natsu’s antics in much of the early parts of the story (definitely prefer Gray). That said, when looking at distinct pink haired anime guys, Natsu immediately jumped to mind. While I think a lot of the other characters are more interesting, Natsu is definitely a bundle of energy, his interactions with Lucy are adorable, and when he gets going in a fight you know its going to be big. Plus, he has a talking flying cat for a friend so you really can’t beat that.

That’s my list this week, be sure to check back next week when I list my top 5 anime females with pink hair.

Thanks for reading.

  1. After thinking hard and looking at this list, I can’t come up with a single name of a male anime character with pink hair. But…that’s probably just me ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. No Neo Yokio? Aww, I guess pink-haired Hikaru works just as well. My pick would be Danganronpa 2โ€™s Kazuichi Soda cause of how nicely the pink works with his highlighter mechanicโ€™s garb.

    1. I didn’t make it even a few minutes into Neo Yokio (not my thing). Kazuichi Soda? Will look up – clearly also haven’t done much with Danganronpa.

  3. Seiryo Teynon in Tenchi Muyo and Galaxy Police (GXP) belongs on this list. He’s a comedy character.

  4. This post made me realize I really haven’t seen that many male characters with pink hair. Hisoka is certainly the creepiest anime character out there, but pink is definitely his thing. I’m not a big fan of Kaoru’s pink hair, but I think that’s because of the shade.

    1. There aren’t a lot of males with pink hair. Even when searching around to see if I’d just forgotten anyone, most of the options I came across were from anime I hadn’t watched or the characters who came up seemed to have red hair or various shades of blonde or gray rather than pink. Considering how many female characters have pink hair this seemed like a bit of a discrepancy.
