Orange hair characters stand out because of their bright hair color, which is often a sign of energy, warmth, and enthusiasm. This post will rank the 20 most popular orange hair characters in anime. I’m sure you know the Top 1, but do you know the last one?
1. Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
There is one small thing that all of Ichigo Kurosaki’s opponents have in common:
“It’s over, Ichigo Kurosaki!”
(Lo and beholdâ€¦ it most definitely, in fact, was not over.)
Wellâ€¦ actually, it always is over – for whoever would say that to him.
He always knows that he needs to Stand Up and Be Strong.
He always knows that there will Cometh the Hour.
He always knows that sometimes Nothing Can Be Explained.
He always knows to walk with the Will of the Heart.
Perhaps one of the most iconic orange hair characters in anime, Ichigo’s fiery hair matches his strong will and determination as a Soul Reaper.
2. Nami (One Piece)
Nami is my ultimate gal, one of the great shonen heroines in my eyes!
Nami’s beauty has always been commented on across the series. She is indeed beautiful. But her true beauty lies in the fact that she’s not just a pretty face in a hot body. She’s kind, caring and forgiving. In WCI, Nami chose forgiveness over resentment. In Punk Hazard, she saved a group of children who were strangers to her, and in Zou, she made the decision, along with the chopper, to save the Mink.
She will kick the boys’ ass when they get out of line. Many fans hate her for that, as they prefer more submissive waifus. On the other hand, I love that Nami doesn’t take crap from anyone. She isn’t a simp or doormat.
3. Emma (The Promised Neverland)
Emma’s bright orange hair is as lively and energetic as her personality. Emma is a major character known for being positive, energetic, and caring. Emma never gives up hope, even when things look bad, and she is always ready to protect her family at the Grace Field House.
Krone says that Emma always puts other people before herself. According to Krone, Emma always puts other people before herself. She refused her chances of survival by not leaving any of her family behind.
4. Shirou Emiya (Fate/Stay Night)
I’ve noticed a lot of people saying that Emiya was a terrible character. Some people even compared him to Kirito (SAO), and I must disagree.
He is too much like a shonen main character because he is stuck in his ways and does everything out of love and kindness. On the other hand, he’s not a good shonen lead.
He saved others because it helped him deal with how empty and broken he felt. He has survivor’s guilt because he lived through the disaster and feels bad about himself. He stands for all the bad things in the world.
Overall, I think Emiya is a pretty good character who is badly understood and sadly shown.
5. Kyo Sohma (Fruits Basket)
Kyo’s hair color is symbolic of his curse as the Cat, an animal not included in the Chinese Zodiac, which the Sohma family is cursed by.
Fans of the show love that Kyo has a soft heart and cares deeply about the people he loves, even though he seems tough on the outside.
His orange hair isn’t just a feature of his appearance; it shows what kind of person he is. On the same level that orange hair isn’t very common, it shows how he felt like an outsider and tried to find love and respect.
6. Kagura (Gintama)
A member of the Yato race, Kagura has superpowers. Although most yato enjoy fighting and violence, Kagura wants to live happily with the people she cares about. Despite trying to act more grown-up than she is, she’s really just a kid at heart.
Additionally, she is the main character of her own storyline, the Yato family storyline, which seems to move faster than any other important plotline in Gintama.
My opinion: At the drop of a hat, she can become the cutest, most innocent character in all of fiction or a naughty little punk. That’s what makes her so attractive. She acts like an incredibly realistic young kid, and she kicks ass with a machine-gun umbrella. She’s easily the best girl, in my opinion.
7. ShĹŤyĹŤ Hinata (HaikyĹ«!!)
ShĹŤyĹŤ Hinata truly lives up to his name as the sun. When it comes to volleyball, he is loud, fierce, and greedy, but he never puts other people down. Even though he is always jealous, he will publicly praise and admire their skills, even to people who are mean to him.
And no matter the obstacles he faces, he doesn’t ever become discouraged- something that is hard to do in real life.
8. Misty (PokĂ©mon)
Misty used to be hot-headed and insecure, but now she is calmer and more driven, but she still has her wild side. It’s interesting to think about how her relationship with Ash went from fights and a lack of respect to the strongest human bond in the series.
Complete with tears, a friendship that will never end, and mutual respect. Character growth is what that is, and it’s one reason why Misty is still so famous.
9. Erina Nakiri (Shokugeki No Soma)
Erina is one of the best students at Totsuki Culinary Academy. She comes from the famous Nakiri family and is the granddaughter of the school’s dean. She is also known for having “God’s Tongue,” a palate that can correctly judge how food tastes.
Even though Erina is cold at first, she shows a kinder side as the series goes on, which shows how she changes as a character.
10. Itsuka Kendo (My Hero Academia)
“Big Fist,” Itsuka’s unusual ability, lets her make her hands very big, which she uses well in battle. Even though she is competitive, she is nice and helpful to others, and she often acts as a leader and mediator in her class.
She was a good teacher and judge because she kept some of her classmates from getting gas at summer camp. Although she wanted to run away at first, she backed Tetsu up against the gas bad guy. Since she can’t take a bullet herself, she spreads the gas so Tetsu can kill the bad guy.
11. Rena Ryuugu (Higurashi When They Cry)
She often says her motto, “I’m gonna take it home!” when she sees something cute. Her happy and innocent exterior hides a darker side, which is slowly revealed throughout the story.
12. Chika Takami (Love Live! Sunshine!!)
As the leader of the school star group Aqours, she wants to shine and help the other girls on her team reach their own goals.
Chika is always moving, friendly, and driven. This last point is very important in the anime because it’s shown a lot. For example, she kept trying to get Dia Kurosawa, the head of the school council, to accept the School Idol Club.
13. Chiyo Sakura (Monthly Girlsâ€™ Nozaki-kun)
The pretty high school student Chiyo Sakura loves Nozaki, but she messes up when she tells him she loves him, so she becomes his fan and then his assistant. Her job is to help Nozaki color his pictures.
She is in class 2A and is a member of the art club at school. She is short, and she has two big red ribbons with white dots in her hair. Nozaki collects these ribbons for the main character in his manga.
14. JĹ«go (Naruto Shippuden)
The shinobi JĹ«go, who is from an unknown clan, was being held at Orochimaru’s Northern Hideout. He was said to have chosen to go to Orochimaru alone and hoped the wise old man could calm him down.
Later, he was asked to join Sasuke Uchiha’s group, Taka, which was first called “Hebi” when it was formed.
15. Yotsuba Nakano (The Quintessential Quintuplets)
The quint with the hardest life was Yotsuba Nakano. She learned the most from her mistakes and went through the most pain to change. She learns to stop lying to herself, love herself, and get over what happened in the past.
She changed from a girl who sacrificed herself and had very low self-esteem to a woman who is now happy and confident. She learns to put her happiness ahead of everyone else’s and walks the rough path with Fuutarou while still caring about and helping those around her.
16. Pain (Naruto)
What is the difference between Pain and Nagato? Are they the same person?
The answer: It’s the same mind/consciousness but in different bodies. Nagato is the real person who controls the paths of pain.
17. Asuka Langley Soryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Without a doubt, Asuka is not a monster or evil. She is also not having a mental breakdown for a large part of the series (especially in the beginning), showing that she can be surprisingly relaxed, thoughtful, and down to earth. She did pretty well in this less stressful setting; the stress would eventually play on her fears and bring her down.
18. Nora Valkyrie (RWBY)
Ah, the lovely Nora Valkyrie. Who doesn’t love this bundle of energy?
She’s a bubbly character, rivaling Yang in just how upbeat and energetic she can be, minus the puns, of course, but with a big obsession over breaking legs.
19. Rin Hoshizora (Love Live!)
Rin Hoshizora is famous for her love of cats and how she acts like one. She often meows to end a speech or show that she’s happy. She also does the famous curved-mouth look and acts like a cat from time to time.
Though she has a pretty side, Rin seems like a bit of a tomboy. She likes sports and is probably the most athletic person in her group, alongside Eli.
20. Gildarts Clive (Fairy Tail)
Q1: What did you think when you first met him in the Anime?
A: Who the fuck is so powerful the town needs to rearrange for him?
Q2: What do you think about him?
A: I like him. He’s badass and wise.
Q3: What do you think of his personality?
A: While he does act silly a lot, the guy can get serious when he really needs to. He’s also pretty wise, and I like that he acknowledges his weaknesses, such as his inability to handle many responsibilities.
Q4: What do you think of his powers?
A: Hell, yes! I love Destruction Powers!
These are just a few of the many orange hair characters in anime. Each one adds their own special charm to their show. They are all memorable, from the main character to the bad guy to the secondary characters. They prove that orange really is the new black in the anime world!
