The Coldest Anime Characters
These guys are not just cool, they're damn cold.
9. Tsukimori Len/Ren
Tsukimori Len is a violinist with a cold appearance and a cold personality. He looks like a dead kid walking around with his instrument around the campus (literally, I mean he doesn't talk to anyone nor does he seem to be interested in anything except playing the violin). He is outstanding in his chosen field though but he doesn't show any interest in interacting much with people around him.
He is surely one cold guy
EXCAPT THAT... his only salvation seems to be Kahoko, as he slowly shows his warmth (but with very slow progress I must say) not only through his music also but when socializing with other people as well. Way to go, Len!
8. Echizen Ryoma - Prince of Tennis
Echizen Ryoma can be regarded as one of the coldest anime characters out there. He is cold, cocky and too focused in tennis to care and to show his affection for other people. However, his indifference and arrogance actually appear to be his charm, attracting lots of female fans, including me!
He is most certainly cold
EXCEPT THAT... he will sometimes realize he is being way too cold and will do little favors for Sakuno. And oh, he extremely cares for his cat, Karupin, too!
7. Mizutani "Dry Ice" Shizuku - Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
I actually haven't seen a girl as cold as Mizutani Shizuku for a really long time. When the series began, she doesn't have a single friend around her and her former classmates even gave her the nickname "dry ice." Her only goal in life is academic excellence, and nothing else matters, which is the reason why she never invested emotionally on anything or anyone.
She is most definitely one of the coldest female characters ever
EXCEPT THAT... she eventually develops a soft spot for Haru.
6. Natsume Hyuuga - Gakuen Alice
Natsume is usually alone and detached and cold towards everyone except his best friend Ruka. He usually skips class but whenever he does not, still refuses to mingle with other people, even if those people really cared for him. Although he developed this kind of personality for a reason, it cannot be denied that he is not just unmindful of others, but he can be very mean to anyone, for no compelling reason at all.
You may definitely call him one mean guy
EXCEPT THAT... he would die for Mikan, so don't :)
5. Vegeta - Dragon Ball Series
This extremely arrogant Saiyan prince can be really annoying most of the time especially his self-centeredness, overconfidence, and extreme sense of superiority. He is aggressive, serious and a good number of times ruthless that I never imagined he would be able to live peacefully with the other DB characters on earth.
He actually almost made it to the top three coldest anime characters ever
EXCEPT THAT... just when we were so sure he was the type who will die alone in life, he marries Bulma.
5. Sesshomaru - InuYasha
This handsome demon oozing with sex appeal prefers isolation more than anything else and will kill anyone on his way in his search for power - even if it is his brother. His evil nature seems to stem from his obsession with power and strength but can only be expected from him, a full-blooded demon. He is most of the time emotionless, if not annoyed or angry.
Some may even say he is as evil as Naraku
EXCEPT THAT... for the first time in his life, he cared for a human girl - Rin.
3. Yuki Nagato - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Yuki Nagato may be very well the epitome of an icy, emotionless human be-, sorry, just being. Nagato is actually an alien possessing supernatural capabilities. Her social skills are almost parallel, if not very close to Full Metal Panic's Sagara Sousuke (social skill = 0). She looks as if she is incapable of speech, and whenever she does speak, she does so in monotone. She also claims she doesn't fully grasp the concept of emotions.
She actually had a good chance of topping this list
EXCEPT THAT... she is the exemption. She was programmed to not have feelings. The only reason she did not win is because the two other characters who bested her were way too evil.
2. Hibari Kyoya - Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Hibari Kyoya likes being alone. However, he appears to like beating the crap out of others more than being alone. As student council president, he is dedicated to protect the peace in Namimori Middle School, whatever the cost. However unlike Nagato who doesn't feel a thing, Kyoya appears to possess feelings - feelings of anger usually caused by people who disturb the peace in his school and people who disturb his ever so precious sleep.
He is a point away from the title "the coldest anime character that ever lived"
EXCEPT THAT... he is still alive and he is also an exemption. He will bite you to death whoever you may be. You can go kill yourself in front of him and he'll just yawn while you're at it. However, he will come to respect Mafia boss Sawada Tsunayoshi in the future and will become one of Tsuna's most trusted guardians, so there... goes the point.
1. Yagami Light / Kira - Death Note
Now, do I even have to explain why Yagami Light is our winner?
I know I don't have to anymore but I still have to. Light won because he is just pure evil, even without a trace of demon blood flowing in his veins. Throughout the entire series, nothing weighed more than his own sense of bringing divine justice unto the world, not even his family. He seemed to care for his sister, but not to the point where he will give up his desire for her sake. He never truly loved anyone, not even Misa.
No doubt, he is the coldest anime character, ever!
Help me turn this into a Top 10 list!
Who did I miss? I missed someone, didn't I? :)
