10 Anime Characters with Blue Hair and Their Personality Traits

Who is your favorite blue-haired anime character? Although it is not the most prevalent hair color, there are some fantastic characters who sport a blue do. Characters with any shade of blue hair are welcome here, including those with dark blue hair, such as Kamina from Gurren Lagann, and teal-haired characters, such as One Piece’s pants-less Franky.

10 Anime Characters with Blue Hair and Their Personality Traits

In real life, you might not see many people with blue hair, but in anime, any hair color is considered normal. There are some old anime characters who fulfil the criterion, such as Rei Ayanami, as well as some recent stars, such as Gintoki Sakata from Gintama.


Botan (YuYu Hakusho)

Botan YuYu Hakusho

She has yellow hair in the manga. Botan in the anime, on the other hand, has sky blue hair. She’s far more attractive than most Grim Reapers are portrayed. She is a hilarious character who tells Yusuke that his death was “a total and utter waste” much to his chagrin.

She also makes him an offer to be revived, giving the show’s protagonist a second chance at life. It’s endearing to see her dressed in Japanese garb while speaking with a British accent in the dub.


Cú Chulainn (Fate/stay night)

Cu Chulainn Fate stay night

The Fate series has had multiple anime adaptations, the first of which was Fate/stay night. Cú Chulainn was a Lancer with blue hair that appeared in the popular mobile game Fate/Grand Order. This series frequently relates to mythological people with the same name, and Cú Chulainn’s lore is no exception.

This Cú Chulainn differs from the mythological one in that he is involved in a Holy Grail War and is forced to work for Kirei Kotomine. Cú Chulainn eventually disobeys Kirei and tries to let Shir and Saber escape, costing him his life at the hands of Gilgamesh.


Makoto Yuki (Persona 3 Movies)

Makoto Yuki Persona 3 Movies

Persona 3 was a video game long before it was adapted into an anime, yet the anime elements were always visible in this series. Makoto Yuki was the game’s major protagonist; therefore he was naturally the main protagonist of several of the game’s films.

In the movies, he’s a sombre and usually apathetic mute protagonist. This blue-haired protagonist does not live with a will to live or die and initially joined SEES since he had no reason to refuse Shuji’s offer. His safety is of the utmost importance to him, which should come as no surprise given that he gave his life to preserve the world by becoming the Great Seal.


Kamina (Gurren Lagann)

Kamina Gurren Lagann

When compared to the primary protagonist, Simon, the passionate and charming Kamina is a far more engaging character. Most anime fans would remember this guy for his trendy triangle sunglasses and spiky blue hair. He dies early in Gurren Lagann, making him an excellent example of a notable character who dies early yet has a significant impact on the events of the show.

Some showgoers will recall his memorable kissing session with Yoko and how he was unable to fulfil his pledge due to his untimely death. He was amusing at times while also being a character that is easy to like based only on his confidence.


Bulma (Dragon Ball)

Bulma Dragon Ball

Bulma is one of the most recognizable characters with blue hair in anime history, as she is one of the most constantly featured women throughout the Dragon Ball series. Her hair color varies depending on which version of the show you see, ranging from blue green to cyan to even purple.

Bulma was recognized for her amazing innovations and functioned mostly as fanservice in the early days of the Dragon Ball anime. She will eventually marry Vegeta and become Trunks’ mother (who also has blue hair, depending on the medium).


Teruhashi Kokomi (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.)

Teruhashi Kokomi The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

Teruhashi Kokomi is a perfect girl who everyone openly idolizes in the universe of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. She isn’t a Mary Sue by any means, as she isn’t “perfect,” but she is simply too gorgeous for people around her. It’s a ridiculous gimmick, yet it leads to some of the funniest scenes in this comedy animation.

It’s also hilarious to see her trying to please the one guy (Saiki Kusuo) who isn’t obviously taken with her. The in-universe explanation for characters in this series having dramatically different hair hues than usual due to Kusuo using his psychic skills to do this is also rather entertaining (hence Teruhashi having dark blue hair).


James (Pokemon)

James Pokemon

Team Rocket’s key members are all lovable in their own right, but James is by far the most likeable of the three. He’s a flashy bottle cap collector who is frequently hurt by his Pokémon’s adoration while also cracking some of the series’ finest jokes. It’s impossible to dislike him, and his presence on the TV program of the most popular media series ensures that almost every anime fan is at least aware of him.

His blue hair is technically periwinkle, which is blue with purple undertones.


Rei Ayanami (Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Rei Ayanami Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a critically praised anime with a perfect Rotten Tomatoes rating. It was just 26 episodes long, but it was a Mecha anime series that made an impact on the industry, with Rei Ayanami as one of the most recognizable characters.

She’s a mysterious yet quiet girl who is a clone of Shinji’s mother (the program has some Freudian notions), and she’s easily identified by her very pale blue hair. She also promoted Moes, which has since become an industry standard (for better or worse).




In my opinion, choosing Meliodas, Escanor, or Ban as your favorite character should be regarded a true personality test.

I’m a true Ban fan. What’s not to adore about an immortal figure with an equally eternal love?

His graphic design alone screams edginess. But his early fights and exploits are also impressive. You’ll have to read the manga to see Ban at his most badass. Even just on what the anime has revealed, he’s a memorable blue-haired dude.


Nagisa Shiota

Nagisa Shiota

Nagisa’s beauty is that, even when compared to bad guy Karma, he appears far more menacing. Most of the time, he appears to be a good-hearted youngster who happens to be armed with some rubber weaponry. When he gets serious, things get heated. He’s the nicest guy in his class, but he’s also the best assassin.

How wonderful is it that he can practically clap you out of consciousness? Nagisa is a top-tier character in this category because of his great hand-to-hand combat skills, some leadership points, and well-rounded character writing.
