Spiky hair is very common in the anime world, typically associated with the coolest and most rebellious characters. Whether it be Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail or Ryuk from Death Note, spiky hair is present in almost all anime. Sometimes, these hairstyles look realistic; other times, they’re considered completely ridiculous. Either way, there’s plenty of great characters donning this type of hairdo.
As such, today, we will list eight characters with spiky hair that will be ranked in terms of their popularity. Some will come from popular series, while others will be far more obscure by comparison. The only criteria for this list is that these anime characters have a distinctive form of spiky hair, regardless of how long or short it is.
8 cool spiky haired anime characters
1) Bakugo (My Hero Academia)
Jujutsu Kaisen is yet another modern anime that many people love. Whether it’s better than My Hero Academia or not will be a discussion for later, but for now, let’s look at the fan-favorite character, Satoru Gojo. He’s easily recognizable for being blindfolded and having fairly big, white spiky hair. Moreover, he has been described as one of the strongest characters in the series.
Satoru is confident, has terrific chemistry with almost every character he interacts with, and is an overall enjoyable character to watch. He might not be the series’ main protagonist, but he’s still more than capable of stealing the spotlight whenever he appears.
