20 Deadly Anime Assassin Characters
So, lets checkout 20 of the greatest deadly anime assassin characters.
20. Johan Liebert From Monster
On the surface this anime assassin, Johan is a well-mannered, charismatic, and compassionate yet somewhat aloof young man.
He possesses a myriad of favorable traits and can easily overwhelm individuals with his seemingly flawless nature, as seen with Hans Georg Schuwald, who describes him as being not of this world.
This meticulously crafted facade makes it easy for him to make new allies and manipulate them into doing various deeds for him through the influence of his supposed friendship and good will.
With such skill in creating this sense of perfection and pureness, Johan hides his true motives with ease.
19. Akame From Akame ga Kill!
Akame appears to be a very serious and cold-hearted anime assassin which stems from her hellish training that the Empire forced her and her sister through, but it is eventually revealed that she is just socially awkward.
She cares about her comrades very much and she is always worried that one of them may not make it out alive due to her first-hand experience that war always has a high mortality rate.
She also tends to hide her emotions when it is revealed that a comrade dies, such as seen with Sheele, making Tatsumi mistakenly and incorrectly assume that she deals with it easily, because she is used to it.
18. Suzuya Juuzou From Tokyo Ghoul
As a child, Suzuya’s personality was somewhat normal, albeit a tad twisted, but as a result of Big Madam’s treatment. He no longer felt fear, pain, nor did he have any morals. Yukinori Shinohara, his mentor, described him as a “problem child”.
Despite his childish and playful demeanor, he was also extremely violent and highly disturbed. He usually described his killing methods to be clean, without needless movements, which is a skill he seemed to take pride in as an anime assassin.
He shows no hesitation to kill someone. He even goes as far as to consider it a part of daily life, and lacks awareness of death’s weight.
17. Death Gun From Sword Art Online: Phantom Bullet
Death Gun made his first appearance in the first episode of Sword Art Online II, in a VRMMORPG known as Gun Gale Online.
As a top ranked player named XeXeeD appears on a streamed broadcast via his avatar, “Death Gun” fires a bullet at XeXeeD’s avatar through a video screen, causing XeXeeD to suddenly convulse and disconnect.
Later, it is revealed that XeXeeD’s user was found dead of heart failure a few days after his avatar was shot. There is also evidence of a similar case involving the death of another GGO user.
16. Minene Uryuu From Future Diary
Minene considers herself a survivor first and foremost, a belief reflected by her Escape Diary.
Before it became her Future Diary, Minene’s Escape Diary was a regular diary that she used to write down all the possible escape routes in whichever area she was planning to attack.
She is very tactical and intelligent, able to easily gather information and make deductions these are great abilities for an anime assassin by the way.
After spending her childhood and teenage years alone without love or guidance, Minene believes she does not need anyone else in her life to help her.
15. Motoko Kusanagi From Ghost in the Shell
Major Motoko Kusanagi is the main protagonist and anime assassin in Masamune Shirow’s anime and manga series.
She is a cyborg employed as the squad leader of Public Security Section 9, a fictional division of the real Japanese National Public Safety Commission, and earned her rank of major during her service in the Japan Ground Self Defense Force.
Motoko’s body is one of the most advanced models on the market, possessing 16²/cm² skin tactile elements, meaning she has a greatly heightened sense of touch.
14. Hei From Darker Than Black
Hei is a calculating anime assassin. Unusually for a Contractor, Hei exhibits and sometimes acts upon emotions. Hei also has a huge appetite, often surprising people with the amount he can eat.
Despite having the power of a Contractor, Hei still has his human emotions. He deeply cares for his sister, Bai, and searches for her after her disappearance.
Hei reverts back to his previous attitude showing his care for Yin, while also developing feelings of care toward Suou.
13. The Scarred Man From Fullmetal Alchemist
Scar is an anime assassin and a survivor of the genocide campaign during the Ishvalan Rebellion. While fighting a State Alchemist named Solf J. Kimblee in the midst of the conflict, Scar lost his right arm as well as his family.
With the last of his strength, his brother had attached his own arm, by means of alchemy, to Scar.
Even if Scar wanted to finally break the Ishvalan teaching and perform transmutation alchemy, he cannot because his right arm is only designed for destroying.
12. Satō From Ajin
Sato is shown to be a calm and cheerful anime assassin on the outside as he’s able to make people feel calm in his presence.
However, beneath this facade is a sinister persona of his – he is merciless when it comes to killing others and he often finds it fun to cause destruction and kill people (whether they’re innocent or not).
He was like this even as a kid when he killed many animals. And when his father beat him as punishment for it, he displayed no sense of guilt and expressed puzzlement on the concept of love and other emotions.
This shows that Sato was already sociopath before he killed people.
11. Thorfinn From Vinland Saga
When the series of this anime assassin begins, Thorfinn is shown as an innocent and friendly anime assassin who is searching for adventure. He shared a very good relationship with his family and enjoyed stories told by Leif about his adventures.
He has a good relationship with his father and looked up to him immensely, shown when he decides to follow Thors by sneaking on his boat to follow him.
This would become the foundation of Thorfinn’s drive to avenge his father.
