Sometimes, it is very tough being the good guy or the great guy that everyone can depend on. It is better to just go your own way or play the villain in someone else’s story. And other times, being the bad guy is just way more fun.
So, here I have compiled a list of Top 10 Anti Heros that you need to Cosplay as. And now, without further ado, let’s just get into it.
Dabi from Boku No Hero Academia is a pure villain. He has killed around 30 innocent people and has an enigmatic personality. Dabi acts aloof and is a self-centered individual that does not even care about his allies. He is willing to sacrifice anyone and everyone that stands in the way of achieving his goal, not to mention he despises heroes. More than half of his skin is burned purple for some reason and is seemingly held together by staples. He has the ability to generate highly destructive flames, but because his body cannot tolerate his own fire, Dabi cannot use his ability to its full effect.
As someone who has gone through the worst in her life, Revy from Black Lagoon does not care about a lot of people. She will kill anyone and everyone who tries to get in her way and can be extremely brutal in her killings. While her character design looks very similar to Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider series, with the twin pistols and almost the same character design. Revy is her own person and is one of the most badass characters to cosplay in anime.
Alucard is the immortal vampire from the classic anime, Hellsing. Like Dabi and Revy, Alucard is a callous, carefree person who does not care about anything other than a few people and his goals. He has killed millions of people over his lifetime and lusts for blood. Alucard loves a challenge and is willing to play with his victims before killing them in the most brutal way possible. He is an apparition, a monster not of this world. He is the thing under the bed that you pray doesn’t disturb you in the middle of the night.
Hei is a hardcore fighting machine that was not dealt a great hand. He lost all his memory after an unfortunate encounter and then was trained to become an Assassin. Hei wanted to do good in the world, but betrayal after betrayal forced him to become a cold-blooded assassin. He has certainly killed more people than he can count. He is the main protagonist of the anime, Darker Than Black, and his character design is mysterious. He’s definitely one of the best anti heroes to cosplay as.
Aizen from Bleach had one of the most famous glow ups in anime. He is a master manipulator who deceived all of soul society by plotting a very long drawn out plan that would lead him to fulfill his hunger for power. Aizen is known for his extreme intelligence. Even more so, the Author Tite Kubo’s excellent character design grasps his personality and completely represents what this character stands for. He is one of the most loved and somewhat hated characters in the series.
Hanako is one of the Seven mysterious figures of the school, who governs over the mysteries and manages the supernatural in the Kamome Academy. He is a short boy, but don’t let his stature fool you. Hanako is a cold-blooded killer who has the blood of his little brother on his hands. He is not afraid of killing someone if he is given a reason to do so and uses some unconventional means to achieve his goals, even at the cost of the people around him. Hanako loves Donuts and has a very sadistic personality.
Lelouch from Code Geas is by far one of the most famous anti heroes in anime. Like Aizen, Lelouch is a manipulator, a conspirer, and is someone who is willing to sacrifice his own friends and allies for his own good. He is a charming individual who is able to attract the right people to himself and make them do his bidding. And he shows us his Charisma throughout Code Geas and is one of the most popular anti-hero characters to cosplay as in anime conventions.
Spike is a classic character from the renowned anime, Cowboy Bebop. He loves money and, as a bounty hunter, hunts criminals, or just anyone for money. Spike does not care about the law all that much and goes about his way to get what he wants. He is a reformed criminal who has a rebellious spirit and lives a carefree and unhealthy lifestyle. Spike is sometimes emphatic to his victims, but for the most part, he is a cool bounty hunter who is willing to blow up an entire building to just get his hands on one bounty.
Guts, the Black Swordsman, is quite the brutal and barbaric character from Berserk. He is the former captain of the Band of Falcon that was led by Griffith during the 100-year wars. He is a war hero and a branded wanderer. Guts at one point lived for revenge and is adamant about fighting against the God hands, the apostles of god that govern the world of Berserk, who caused him distraught. He is on a quest for Retribution and cares deeply for his new companions.
The infamous villain turned ally; Vegeta from the Dragon Ball Franchise is one of the most loved anti-hero characters in anime. He is the self-centered deuteragonist in the famous anime franchise DBZ; who has, over the years, become one of the most iconic characters ever to have come out of anime. He initially started out as someone who did not give any qualms about anyone except his own ego. But he has since calmed down, and become one of the main leads in the DBS series.
