Types Of Male Characters In Anime

Have you already noticed the different types of boys there are in so many animes?


(Check out the post Types Of Female Characters In Anime if you haven’t yet!)

Even though every guy is different, you can still see the similarities between the characters in anime – let’s list some of them here:

1. The Baby-Boy


We all know these anime boys, who are 17, but look like 12 – small with big eyes and a high voice. They look super cute, but it’s hard to distinguish them with the actual 12-year-olds xD

2. The Motivator


Natsu Dragneel, Naruto Uzumaki etc. etc. – those are the types who are always super motivated and never break a promise; they never ever give up no matter what they do. Not only do they motivate the other characters in the anime, but they also have a huge impact on us.

  • The super confident, everything-knows ones! (especially those who are school drop outs) πŸ˜€ They are my absolute favourite πŸ˜€
    Oh and loved this post! Great job you always come up with something new :*

  • The baby boys always get me, they’re so cute but confusing because they look so little. XD

  • The loner is the best at all especially hikigaya hachiman the dark night rises πŸ˜€ btw thanks for your like at my blog maybe I just can reply your kindness with this coment and like πŸ˜€

    • Hahaha no problem and thank you too for the comment! πŸ™‚

  • Haha this is so awesome and very accurate. Have you done this for Female characters?? And do you think some of these apply to females too?

    • Yep, I’ve done it for female characters – you can click the link at the beginning of this post πŸ™‚

  • The nerd/strategist/usually marked by glasses and snarky comments boy! He’s all over the place, and usually becomes buds with the lead! Haha, great list! It’s hard to pick a favorite, as variety is key, but I’d have to go with the loner from what you listed.

  • The delinquent. Example Harima from school rumble, haru from tonari no kai butsu-kun (my little monster) and oga from Beelzebub. These types of characters are very interesting. πŸ˜€

    • Thanks! I didn’t think of them πŸ˜€

  • The guy who always has issues from the past…. an ex he cannot forget, or an girl from the past wanting to enter his life again, or issues with the family that prevents him from acting normally. This is the stuff shoujo guys are made of, 99 % of the time.
