Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters with Blonde Hair

Tuesday's Top 5

Last week I went through my top 5 female characters with blonde hair so now it is time to turn my attention to the guys. And I thought narrowing down the list of female characters was hard. There’s quite a range of blonde male characters to choose from but I think I ended up with a fairly interesting selection. Previously I’ve looked at males with red hair and blue so if you missed those lists check them out. Feel free to add yours in the comments below.

Over on patreon, patrons can access my lesser top 5 list. This week its the blonde guys who make you cringe.

Please Note – There will be spoilers below.

Honourable mentions go to: Urahara (Bleach), Edward Elric (Full Metal Alchemist), Yukine (Noragami), Worick (Gangsta) and Oz (Pandora Hearts).

Number 5: Mikaela from Owari no Seraph

For a character that is essentially killed in episode 1, Mikaela definitely doesn’t let that get in the way of being in a large part of this series. While he undergoes a massive transformation from human to vampire and his cheery personality is all but gone, it could be argued Mikaela is the character  who changes the least given regardless of the circumstances he is still trying to protect his ‘family’. I love this character and find the series suffers from his absence at times.

Number 4: Vash the Stampede from Trigun

Vash is the goofy character of the wild west only he isn’t really all that goofy when things get serious and they are stuck on an alien planet and not in the west. As a character with a large bounty on his head and known as a humanoid typhoon more or less everyone in the world is out to get him but Vash just wants to make friends and help people. His crack shooting is almost never aimed at someone and he will definitely take an injury before he’ll inflict one. He’s quite the interesting character once you get past the opening few episodes where mostly he just seems like Daffy Duck with a gun.

Number 3: Natsume from Natsume Yuujinchou

I struggled with whether or not Natsume actually had blonde hair or not but at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter. He’s an awesome character who experiences slow and realistic growth through his encounters. Plus he likes cats.  Okay, he spends a lot of time running away from yokai and hanging out in the woods but he mostly still gets to school and he’s even made quite a group of human friends. Mostly it is just fun spending time with Natsume as he grows up.

Number 2: November 11 from Darker Than Black

I reviewed Darker Than Black for my 100th series review and November 11 featured prominently then. He’s one of my favourite characters of all time because of his very cool power (he was also on my list of ice magic users) and his general sardonic outlook on life. I love how he can deliver an accusation or insult with a totally deadpan expression and then add that he was joking after the fact. Admittedly, he needs a shorter message on his phone because wasting people’s time listening to a joke can cost lives.

Number 1: Fai D Flourite from Tsubasa Chronicles

Much like November 11, Fai likes to play the fool at times but don’t let his charming smile fool you. Fai is smart, strong and talented and even if he never lifts a finger in a fight against you don’t think you are going to win. While he might let you claim the draw (mostly because he isn’t fighting back) he seldom has anyone get the better of him. Which makes the few occasions when he stumbles (particularly when it nearly costs him is life) even more shocking. I love that Fai has so much development as a character in the background of this story. He is accused of being a coward and his general desire to simply run away from his past definitely supports that but at the same time he doesn’t abandon his friends throughout the course of the story no matter how bad things get. Plus he looks good in a suit and Mokona likes him.

There you have it, my top 5 male characters with blonde hair. Who would have been on your list?

  1. Other than Vash and the guy from Darker than Black I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else on here. Top 5 Blondes seems so weird I have to think about it.

    Alexander Anderson: (Hellsing) He is bad ass (maybe?) immortal paladin from the Vatican Church who lives exterminate Vampires, Demons and Heathens. He is the only one in the series who is able to fight Alucard as his equal and he had a wicked scar. he cuts down all his foes human and demon alike. He’d probably make short work of Mikaela and smile while he does it. Only the No Life King is able to resist him, the man in red himself Alucard.

    Blondes are harder than I thought. Most are brown or black haired, even red. I’m trying not to count white/silver even though they are probably supposed to be platinum blonde

    Zechs Merchise: (Gundam Wing) Almost forgot the man, the myth, the legend. For older Gundam Fans it might be Char. For me it’s the Lightning Count. He’s an ace pilot and former noble of a pacifist country. He wears a mask to hide who is and gain revenge. he is easily able to fight in one on one combat with the other Gundams including Heero Yuy. You could also argue for Trieze Kushranada from the same series but Zechs left more of an impression on me than him.

    Laxus: (Fairy Tail) Ok so he is gone a lot, so they don’t automatically win all the time like Goku. And they constantly nerf his power by having him hurt/sick. Still when he shows up on the battlefield the Lightning Dragonslayer shows you why he is a third generation mage and no one to be trifled with.

    There are way more memorable blonde girls that come to mind than guys.

    Gilgamesh: (Fate Stay Night/Zero) Almost forgot the King of Heroes himself or “Goldy” as Alexander the Great called him. He was the best character in the Fate Series before they nerfed him and in the Unlimited Bladeworks remake that no one asked for (which was the worst of the series all it did was rehash the original story shoehorn in an uninteresting love story and nerf a previously awesome character). Still in the first two series he is a force to be reckoned with. He he as fantastic climactic duel with Saber in the original which far surpasses the remake’s cliche story. In the prequel Fate Zero he fights awesome battles against Berserker and Alexander in stunning and glorious fashion befitting the King of Heroes. If only Unlimited Blade Works never existed he’d be higher.

      1. It was actually hard I had to wrack my brain. They were there but I it didn’t jump out at me. Though I felt silly once I thought about it. Each of those guys I listed were awesome in their respective series.

        Hellsing is a horror series you might like. Though you should watch the Ultimate version. It was made after the anime was finished it had a better ending and we got see the Immortal Paladin battle the No Life King once more before the end.

  2. Vash is my guy. Honey for Ouran would also make my list. Usui from Maid Sama and I’m at lost for the other two though to be honest.

  3. So happy to see Mika on this list! He’s one of my favourite characters from the series. 😊 But shoutout to Tamaki from Ouran Highschool Host Club! He’s such a funny character and since it was one of the first anime’s I watched, it holds a special position for me :’)

    1. See, if I was going to choose an Ouran character it would definitely be one of the twins (and they don’t count for blonde hair). Still, nice choise.
