Anime Elves are very versatile characters.
Right from the beautiful elven love interest to a warrior that will cut your limbs off without hesitation.
And drag you back to their lair to torture information out of you, from benevolent heroes who only and only want peace and harmony to a morally-grey tainted soul that only wants to be loved by someone.
In a world where everything else is dark, Puck’s silly personality stands out.
So, whether you’re a kid or an adult, you’ll be happy to see how many different kinds of Elf-based anime there are.

This lets him find a mystery prison with a beautiful woman locked up inside.
Noir becomes a student at Hero Academy to learn how to free the woman.
33. Tsukiyohime From Himawari!
A normal, but beautiful, elf woman who lives high in the mountains uses her thoughts to help the main character of Himawari.

Not only that, but Himawari will also meet her hero, the new exchange instructor Hayato Madenokoji!

32. Misanaria “Mia” Bolenan From Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody
A group of people who follow Satou Pendragon includes a 130-year-old elf who looks like a child and is good at soul magic.
He used to be Ichirou Suzuki, a 29-year-old software engineer who woke up in a role-playing game (RPG) dream world.
With his information at its best, Satou starts to look into this new dreamland and gets a number of women to sleep with.
He really seems to be living in a dream.
31. Ranah “Elwyn” Sylphis From Shining
An elf princess with a brave but childish personality who goes with the main character, Souma Akizuki, in Shining Tears X Wind. She is armed with her #1 bow and bolt.
Six understudies read a confusing book called “End Earth” and are suddenly taken to the dreamland. The Guardian of End Earth invites Souma because he or she needs Souma to protect the world.
He and his other friends want to go home, but End Earth is getting ready to start a war, and Souma made a promise to protect the world.
30. Halkara From Slime Taoshite 300 Nen
This 200-year-old fictional person is doing well, even though she is best known for being awkward and cute because she is blonde.
She is a close friend of the main character in I’ve Been Killing Slime for a Long Time and Maxed Out My Level, which is written by Azusa Aizawa.
In her past life, Azusa was a businesswoman who died from running out of money. In the next life, a goddess gives her the ability to live forever.
In her new dream world and life, Azusa has liked peace, quiet, and killing weak ooze beasts for a long time.
This brings her level to its highest point. People start to hear about her amazing skills and come to her to fight or ask for help. So much for peace and unity.
29. Kokkoro Natsume From Princess Connect Re: Dive
In Princess Connect!, an 11-year-old fictional figure acts as a guide for the main character, Yuuki. About: Dive. He falls out of the sky and lands in a dreamland he has never been to before.
With Kokkoro’s help, Yuuki can learn more about her world and fight monsters. Yuuki and Kokkoro decide to join a society to make money.
There, they meet the bubbly and charming Pecorine and Karyl, a young cat woman who is good at magic.
The four of them form a group and go on to have experiences, learn about the world, and start to understand the truth of Yuuki’s lost memories.
28. Myucel Foaran From Outbreak Company
So, elves are pretty cool, right?
But what if I told you that Outbreak Company has a half-elf with two tails who has served in the military for two years and also works as a maid?
So much for Myucel Foaran.
She lives in a place where not being pure-blooded is seen as a bad thing, which is sad. So that she always had to hide her elf ears.
And that’s what makes Shinichi a good guy for her.
Since he’s not from her world and is an otaku, he doesn’t think it’s strange that she’s a half-elf with long, pointy ears. On the contrary, he likes them, and he’s right about that.
Myucel is an amazing person who picks up the Japanese language quickly and does her work quickly, especially if it’s for Shinichi.
27. Shera Greenwood From How Not to Summon a Demon Lord
At this point, it’s safe to say that a blonde female elf is likely to end up in a fantasy story with a lot of ecchi and harem.
But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. And it just shows how interesting elves are on their own.
The pointy ears and magic and shooting skills make them stand out, and all of these things are true of Shera Greenwood, who has blonde hair.
Yes, she has a lot to offer.
Shera is again a young female elf, but she is more than just a stereotypical blonde girl.
Shera was a princess, but she had to leave her country because her brother Keera was mean to her.
So she’s getting over a terrible event, and a feeling of being alone keeps creeping up on her.
So, she called upon Diablo. Together with Rem, Diablo pulls her out of her dark past.
And Shera is a very interesting person:
Even though her brother hurt Keera, Shera doesn’t hate or want to get back at him. She even feels sad that Keera died.
26. Celcia “Elizabeth” Marieclaire From Those Who Hunt Elves
This list wouldn’t be complete without the elf who is the host of the show “Those Who Hunt Elves.”
Celcia was the reason to watch the show.
She was having a normal life in her fantasy world when three people showed up and ruined her day.
She uses her magic to try to send them back to Earth, but things don’t go as planned.
Now, they have to go looking for female elves and actually strip them to find pieces of the spell that are tattooed on their bodies.
I love how old Celcia looks, even though the anime is from 1996.
She isn’t the only elf girl in anime with long, golden hair, but she looks the most grown up. Except when she turns into a dog and then, get this, a panda to make things even funnier.
25. Pwyll From Tears to Tiara
Most shows like Tears to Tiara don’t have as many elf characters with real speech as Tears to Tiara does, but Pwyll is the one I remember the most.
For one thing, two of the main players are directly related to him. Riannon and Arthur, to be exact.
Throughout the series, you’ll see how other people act when they find out they’re related to the famous king of the elves who fought alongside Arawn against the army of Heaven.
Second, some people think that Pwyll came back to life as Arthur. So maybe that’s why the second one looks so much like him.
And finally, even though most of his screen time was in EP 22 through Arthur’s flashbacks, that was enough to show his strength, charisma, and willingness to change if it meant saving his people.
There are three things that every good boss must have.
24. Victoria Samanark From Restaurant to Another World
Victoria Samanark was a pleasant surprise in Silver Link’s slice-of-life isekai, which was already a surprise. This show has a special place in my heart because it was on while I ate my boring, lonely meals back then.
And in ainime, I haven’t seen anyone like Victoria yet.
She is a shy half-elf princess who has spent her whole life learning magic.
Maybe it was never really a choice to begin with. Victoria wasn’t a pure-blooded human like her parents and brother, who were also in the royal line. She knew that if she took the throne, their people would be upset.
So, her only real choice was to work on her magic, which turned out to be a great choice for both her and the audience.
The beautiful Victoria met Altorius through magic. He took her to the Nekoya restaurant, where she fell in love with pudding so much that she made a way to keep it cool when she took it home.
23. Fiel Nirvalen From No Game No Life
I still feel bad that I missed seeing the movie in theaters when it finally came to my country. Based on what the series did, I’m sure it would have been cool to see its original style on a big screen.
Fiel Nilvalen stands out from other elves because No Game No Life has a bright, unique look, as if it went through all kinds of crazy photo effects.
She looks like a standard anime elf, but there’s nothing wrong with that if it’s done well.
Despite being 52 years old, Fiel Nirvalen looks like a young girl.
In fact, I’d be happy if she was my friend in a dream world where I was sent. Maybe it’s because of her big, kind blue eyes, her cute smile, and, of course, her long, golden hair.
But what I love most about her is that she is kind to Chlammy Zell, the human slave that her elf family owns.
Even though it’s a big risk, she decided not to treat her differently because of her race. Instead, she treated her with respect and as a game partner, not as a slave.
22. Mare Bello Fiore From Overlord
Yes, you did read this correctly:
I picked Mare Bello Fiore over his twin sister Aura Bella Fiora, and it’s probably because Bukubukuchagama made him look like a trap.
This cute little dark elf has beautiful eyes that are different colors on each side and ears that are long for his body size. He looks shy and worried.
Mare Bello Fiore would rather lie around and read books than talk to people, but he and his sister are both good 6th Floor Guardians.
Lastly, I love all the little things that went into making his character. From his golden bangs and green cape to his white skirt and gloves.
21. Zel From Interspecies Reviewers
Interspecies Reviewers is one of the most divisive anime shows of the past few years, which is kind of poetic.
But the show can’t really be stopped:
It’s out there already.
Everyone knows what Zel, Kanchal, and Stunk did and what the different sucubi creatures did to them.
You don’t have to watch the whole show to understand why Zel is still in my mind.
Just watch EP 01 to see how funny it is that Zel is attracted to an old human woman (she seems to be in her 50s) who has a lot of power.
20. Juana From Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere
You probably didn’t expect to see this kind of elf here, but that’s what makes Juana even more interesting.
Here is a curvy, blue-haired half-elf woman with huge plates around her shoulders and waist, as if she were ready to take on a robot unit by herself.
People would probably laugh at the idea that she is an elf if it weren’t for her sharp ears and the fact that she is the queen of Tres Espaa, which includes humans, elves, and half-elves.
But that’s the strange world of science fiction in Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere:
It gave fans a detail-oriented queen who is also vice president of the student council.
She seems unapproachable, but she is sometimes silly and always very attractive (thanks, Rie Tanaka, for giving her a voice).
19. Lyrule From CHOYOYU!: High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even in Another World!
Even though CHOYOYU came out not too long ago, I don’t blame anyone for forgetting about it. If it stuck in someone’s mind, it was because of things like the bad story and how it was told.
But there is one good thing about it that stands out:
Lyrule is a cute elf and the secondary character in The Legend of Zelda. Her name is just one letter away from being the same as the name of the game’s kingdom.
High schoolers and minor characters often made me mad, but Lyrule always made me happy.
Her hair wasn’t a bright neon green or a dark shade of green. Instead, it was a softer, lighter shade of green that fit her kind nature.
Then you see her big blue eyes, the slight blush on her face, her smile, and her fanservice shots, and you feel like CHOYOYU could be saved from itself, but it can’t.
18. High Elf Archer (Yousei Yunde) From Goblin Slayer
She is a 2000-year-old elf who is very good with a bow and arrow and a reliable part of the Goblin Slayer party.
But because she is seen as a young magical figure, she is known to be short-tempered and not be able to handle alcohol very well.
When the 15-year-old Priestess’s group is captured and killed by trolls, she is ready to die with them, but the hidden Goblin Slayer saves her.
She can help him and his group get rid of all the trolls.
17. Filimøs Harrifenas From So I’m A Spider So What?
She used to be a homeroom teacher whose name was Kanami Okazaki.
She and her whole class died in an earthquake, but she came back to life in a dream world where she is the main recipient of a made-up leader and searches the world for her other resurrected students.
One of her young female assistants who died and was brought back to life as a prison bug is the hardest to find.
She is a wonderful person who has always wanted to teach. Even though she died and came back to life, she still tries to take care of her beloved children.
16. Eina Tulle From DanMachi
Eina Tulle, a character from the anime DanMachi, is a very interesting person in the world of Orario, which is full of magic.
Eina has an air of elegance and wisdom about her because she works hard to help explorers.
Her beautiful brown hair falls in a graceful way and frames her kind eyes. Eina looks and acts like a librarian, which shows that she is smart and has a strong sense of purpose.
Her unwavering commitment to her job as a mentor and guide gives the busy city of Orario a bit of warmth. Eina Tulle is a character that adventurers and fans alike love and look up to.
15. Tiffania Westwood From Zero no Tsukaima
Tiffania starts off as a rather naïve character who doesn’t really understand anything about others.
In episode 2 of season 2, Tiffania Westwood, a well-endowed half-elf, saves Saito from dying. She used Joseph de Gallia’s music box while it was still in Albion to learn a spell that erases memories.
Archduke de Albion and his half-elf wife, Tifa, had a daughter named Tiffania. She lives by herself in a small house.
Tiffania is a style star and also makes clothes. Even though she is a famous person, her style is often forgotten.
She has a beautiful body, so she can wear a lot of sexy clothes. Her line of clothes is full of high-quality pieces that aren’t always cheap.
14. Echidna From Queen’s Blade
A dark-skinned barely dressed badass freelance mercenary wild elf.
What else do you need to know about this very incredibly hard to miss character. She stands out so much with her perverted and sadistic demeanor.
She is one of those characters that has the strength to wreck havoc on the entire world but doesn’t do it because she’s lazy.
One can very easily gloss over the heart of gold that she has, buried deep inside her outer shell of her negative, cruel and rude behaviour caused by 500 years of battle experience.
A slight sense of personal space and establishing boundaries, a little more clothing and this character will be the perfect elf warrior you’ll ever come across.
13. Schnee Raizar From The New Gate
Cool, calm and collected…unless it’s about someone she cares about. If you put even a finger to hurt even a hair of anyone who she holds dear be prepared to face the wrath of hell that she is going to unleash on you!
This, however, isn’t the most central and noticeable thing about her character. Her trademark trait actually is her strict adherence to neutrality.
She doesn’t help people because she wants to protect them, but because it’s what she is supposed to do. Her neutrality has often manifested as strictness in her training.
Her wide range of skillset such a Blade Breaker, Mind’s eyes, Wide heal and so many more give her an impressive femme fatale profile.
12. Aura Bella Fiora From Overload
She is tiny, okay?
So, instead of stabbing you in the face with a dagger, Aura will stab you in the heart with her blunt remarks.
She is extremely loyal and has a sense of duty. She often bosses her brother around but eventually throwing in commands like “Take care of yourself, in case we get separated.”.
Her cheerful and tomboyish personality melds nicely into her combat skills basically taming animals and specialising in gorilla combat.
It’s quite the surprise that a character like her has a fear of insects and insect-like features including antennae and appendages.
11. Deedlit From Record of Lodoss War
Would you rather live a short and peaceful life or an eternal life where you’re constantly the target of a wizard who wants to capture and use you as a sacrifice for a ritual?
Deedlit didn’t exactly have a choice. She’s a high elf. So, she was automatically blessed with the second option.
Though with the long life that she has had, it comes with plus sides too.
She is often the one with most knowledge, being able to anticipate potential dangers and warns her comrades about it.
Her attacks are very high speed, accurate and she can often strong enemies like her dark elf counterparts.
She does have a little tendency to be haughty and cocky though.
That’s okay, right?
Since she’s going to live forever.
10. Annette From Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi
I can’t believe she betrayed her own race to join exactly those who are harming her comrades without even a bit of hesitation. She also opened a portal to bring in more earthly material…
Until you know that she was acting as a spy in the enemy organization all on her own and she tried to use a powerful spell and destroy them from the inside but the portal didn’t work properly and backfired on accident instead.
This Priestly elf though was quick to realize her own misjudgment and mend her ways quickly, giving her a quick adaptability.
9. Marielle From The Log Horizon
Marielle can winkle sadness out of anyone. Her cheerful energetic and happy personality shined like sunshine upon everyone who recieves the blessing of her smile.
She also does definitely get pouty if something happens, has a tendency to whine and throw tantrums. She is a slacker and also a bit…
How should I put this… Careless or rather open about her body directly asking people if they want to touch her chest or something.
Despite all of this, she is a variables leader and has a great concern for others.
She caring, gentle and helpful towards others while also being a little too inquisitive where it usually points to prying, troublesome with all of her meddling into others matters and winkle jumps to the wrong conclusions.
A perfect balance of strengths and flaws.
An experienced elf with a childlike happy personality, isn’t that just the thing that you need in life?
8. Fardania From Isekai Shokudo
In Restaurant to Another World, a pure-blooded wood elf whose favorite foods are tofu and other meatless foods.
In Tokyo, Nekoya is a well-known Western restaurant. But when they close on Saturdays, they go to people from different worlds and make their #1 dishes so they can come back the next Saturday.
Fardania can do so many amazing things. She is a great archer and can fix any wound. She has the power of woods and nature in a very real way.
7. Kokoro Natsume From Princess Connect! Re:Dive
An elf devoted to serving her Master for her entire life! Kokkoro has waited since she was a child so that she could assist her Master who would finally arrive.
She is definitely the picture of a nature elf in your mind. Light green clothes, loyal and kind, used the honorific ‘-sama’ for everyone and tends to animals, plants and meditates for fun.
Don’t ever make the mistake of underestimating her combat skills. She wields a lance like a part of her body. You wouldn’t even realize when you were defeated once she does get serious in a fight.
6. Fil Nilvalen From No Game, No Life
You’re stereotypical dumb soft-spoken character that always needs to be saved…
Except that she’s very cunning…
And doesn’t need to be saved.
This elf is actually much more than anything that would seem on the surface. She is calm, composed, in control of her emotions most of the times, greatly affectionate but also equally hateful.
Despite having her pride as an elf, she is ready to sacrifice it for the people she loves. Even being such an affectionate person.
She doesn’t mind being sadistic towards anyone she claims to hate cheerfully asking them to blow themselves up and licking her shoes and apologizing and force characters into being her chairs.
5. Aura Shurifon From Tenchi Muyo
In Tenchi Muyo, a dark elf girl and a person from the watchman! Her personality changes a lot depending on what time of day it is.
In the morning, she’s sweet and funny, but by evening, she’s more honest and straight-forward.
Then, 15-year-old Kenshi Masaki will be taken hostage and taken to a different world. He will be able to go home if he helps his kidnappers kill the new sovereign.
He doesn’t work out, and in the end, she hires him. She teaches him how to control a robot called a Sacred Mechanoid and takes him to an institute to improve his skills.
However, Kenshi finds out about a bad plan inside the institute that could lead to a big fight.
4. Regan Or Li Gan From Log Horizon
A 28-year-old elf in Log Horizon who is the Sage of Mirror Lake and a scientist of magic. He tells it like it is, is very sensitive, and loves to learn new things.
He is a part of the Elder Tale, a well-known MMORPG that catches 30,000 players when they least expect it. Shiroe, an undergrad who thinks a lot, is one of them.
Shiroe, who has played the game for a long time, comes to the conclusion that he should make the most of his new normal by looking into the world, the framework, and quick ways to get around.
3. Sylphiette From Mushoku Tensei
A little girl with green hair, elf ears, and orange eyes. She is part human, part magical creature, and part monster.
People often mistake her for being bad because of her green hair, but she is actually a nice and smart young woman.
She is the best friend Rudeus Greyrat has ever had. He was a fat 34-year-old man who didn’t have a job.
He was hit by a truck and woke up in a dreamland.
2. Licht From Black Clover
Licht has been through so much despite being such a harmonious and non-violent character, it’s extremely unfair.
Licht is the kind of character who only wants to live a simple cottage life with his family and friends, tending to his plants, reading his books, sword fighting with his friends, testing and honing his magical skills and not bother anyone.
Happy smiles and laughs turned to laboured breaths and blood baths, despite all of which, Licht continued to fight for what he believed in, alongside his friends.
No matter what anyone else believed, Licht didn’t mindlessly blame anyone for his fate. He stayed calm and sacrificed himself for everyone else.
1. Emilia From Re:Zero
Emilia, a half-elf, candidate to become King of Lugnica and the supposed daughter of the Witch of Envy, rose to her current popularity for a reason.
Emilia is sweet, never turns her back on people that need her, is trusting, strong and courageous. A usually pious, calm and soft-spoken character who can pick her voice up when required.
Emilia is very likeable due to her overall personality, her ice based magic powers, abilities to communicate with spirits, her heartfelt connections with other characters and the determination to sacrifice for them make Emilia the one to definitely take a place in your heart.
Not to mention the beautiful silver hair, pointy ears and her incredibly cute giggle.
