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?
