Don’t fool yourself, will we? Let’s be honest. We all enjoy bounty hunters. They have a good fighting style, a slew of cool weapons and armor, and a wicked ride. Furthermore, they are those on the periphery of society who are frequently without a superior. They are, after all, slaves to the pursuit of money, and the majority of them are destitute. Aside from that, individuals usually determine on their own what jobs they want to take on and how they want to go about performing them. Fortunately, most of them enjoy stirring up trouble, which makes for some exciting chases and showdowns. In no time at all, the best anime bounty hunters will appear.
10. Jigo from Princess Mononoke
.When a demon boar curses Prince Ashitaka’s arm, he is forced to flee his secret community and travel west in search of a cure. An ancient spirit from the West should be able to help him. The cursed boar traveled all the way from the West. As he travels, he begins to see why the West has both so much promise and so much of a curse. Nature and civilization are at odds, and Lady Eboshi and Princess San have placed him squarely in the middle of the action.
Ashitaka originally sees Jigo as a trustworthy and sage-like persona, but he is actually a clever opportunist. He directs Ashitaka to the Iron City, the flashpoint in the conflict between nature and humanity. However, he is in fact a bounty hunter who is attempting to capture the legendary spirit of the forest by setting up as many parts as possible. The emperor wants the emperor’s head because of a legend that says it will keep him young forever. In order to weaken the forest and keep the majority of its inhabitants at bay, Jigo organizes things in such a way as to make a last-minute grab at the head. When it comes to combat, the man is clearly an expert. However, he fails the assignment and must return the forest spirit’s head.
9. Nagi from Tenchi Muyou
In Tenchi Muyou, a space pirate named Ryoko breaks into the life of a 17-year-old named Tenchi Masaki. Tenchi’s life will be turned upside down by her naughty nature alone. With the arrival of Ryoko, Tenchi’s household now includes four officers from other planets and a mad scientist, as well as two royal princesses. Let the fun begin!
In the world of bounty hunting, Nagi is one of the most sought-after fugitives. In their most recent combat, Ryoko was fleeing more than fighting, and she was her most recent victim and the only person to ever escape her grasp. In other terms, Nagi is extremely strong and adept at manipulating others. With the help of her cat/spaceship Ken-Ohki, she is able to track down and capture wanted men and women in space with extraordinary agility and firepower.
8. Natsuki Sasahara from Hyper Police
In Hyper Police, monsters and humans coexist peacefully. Sasahara Natsuki, a half-cat, half-human bounty hunter, has a stake in both societies and tends to manage many of the conflicts that arise between monsters and humans. With the help of her werewolf helpers Batanen and Tommy, and the fox demon Sakura, she is able to measure justice.
We highly recommend hiring Natsuki as your bounty hunter. She is kind and, in contrast to many of the other characters on this list, is driven by a passion for protecting the law. As a bounty hunter, her job isn’t one of necessity or convenience, but rather a way for her to carry out her mission: justice. will go out of her way to aid those in need and to respect the rule of law. For catching criminals, she can use her ability to create electrical shots. In spite of this, she is one of the most unreliable bounty hunters. At least twice, she’s accidentally shot an ally, and she could do the same to her own team if she’s afraid.
7. Roy Revant from Solty Rei
Solty Rei’s future dystopia has two key points to keep in mind. Several factors have contributed to the widening disparity in wealth between rich and poor, including the rise of large conglomerates that have acquired most of the world’s wealth. The second problem is that it’s impossible to identify whether a person is made of muscle and bone or has cybernetic body components. As a bounty hunter, you never know if you’re going for a target that’s out of your league. Yet Roy Revant has made a fine life on the job, but he ended up needing to be saved by an incredible young girl on one of his missions. That and a few others’ attention shifts to the topic of wealth distribution following this incident .’s.
Roy has had a difficult life, and his work reflects it. He has no qualms about roughing up suspects in order to gain the information he needs. When a man’s wife died and his daughter went missing, what do you expect him to do? There is certainly a soft spot in him, as he continues to search for his daughter and is willing to not only name his savior “Solty,” but also adopt her. We’re seeing more and more of the guy’s paternal instincts as he shields individuals he cares about from harm.
6. Nadie from El Cazador de la Bruja
Heinrich Schneider, a distinguished physicist, was allegedly murdered by Ellis. Nadie, a bounty hunter, is the first person to catch up to her. Nadie has a change of heart and instead of handing over the young girl, she decides to help Ellis look for answers about her history. Beginning at this point, we have El Cazador de la Bruja.
Nadie is a lady who sets her own rules, no matter the circumstances. Nobody can stop her from taking on the jobs she wants, because she only works on the ones she wants. She’s a thief to the core. Because she’s an excellent marksman, she’s able to sustain a lifestyle like this. In a fight, few individuals can take her and her favorite weapon, the Colt.45, on.
5. Saya Minatsuki from Black Cat
Assassin Train Heartnet has been dubbed “Black Cat” for his ability to take down any target he comes across. Saya Minatsuki, the mysterious bounty hunter, appears one day and challenges him to a duel. She emits a sense of liberation and her view on life causes Train to perform a complete 180-degree turn about. He decides to leave his current company and embarks on a journey that has repercussions not only for him and his former employers, but for the entire planet.
In the neighborhood, Saya is a well-known sweeper and bounty hunter. She has honed a shot that is able to change direction over time. She is able to do this because she is extremely knowledgeable about geometry, physics, and her surroundings. She will aim at a specific target, but the bullet will bounce off of it and strike her opponent in an unexpected manner. The high-ranking criminal Preta Ghoul is brought down by this ability once Train finds that his guns are ineffective against her. Even though she’s obviously talented at bounty hunting, her spirit is in tune with the freedom of choice that such a career provides. Train’s life is eternally changed by the fact that she only does what she wants to when she wants to.
4. Favaro from Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis (Rage of Bahamut: Genesis)
There is a human realm, a god realm, and a demon realm in this cosmos. However, when Bahamut appeared and threatened the existence of all the planets, they all banded together to capture and confine the monster. After that, the cosmos has been a happy place. Despite the presence of some holy and evil forces in our planet, everything is in harmony. That is, unless someone takes a key from the god realm and unlocks Bahamut’s prison.
A crazy adventure is what Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis excels at doing best. Favaro’s casual attitude and swashbuckling flair set the tone for the rest of the story, and he is a major factor in its popularity. Favaro and Kaisar’s rivalry is on full display in the first episode, with the bounty hunter teasing his partner bounty hunter with a humorous and destructive chase. He’s the kind of person you can’t help but be drawn to. He’s a master manipulator who can take advantage of any circumstance. He’s aided by a big mouth that’s never short on things to say, and by a distinct sense of style.
3. Rally Vincent from Gunsmith Cats
Let’s go for a walk in a gun-free zone in the city. Rally Vincent and Minne May Hopkins own and run an underground gun shop, so it’s not completely gun-free. There is a much darker side to the underground market that this tiny enterprise takes the two into, and it will take all of their skills to get out.
Rally While searching for Vincent’s father, Vincent became a bounty hunter in order to find out who shot and killed her mother. Before becoming an Olympic marksman, her father taught her everything he knew about firearms through his own practice. As a result, she is a master of most firearms and is able to wield them with great accuracy and ability. She carries a.25 DuO mounted on a spring-loaded frame linked to her arm, a SIG P210, and sometimes a back-up weapon in an ankle holster, despite her preference for the CZ-75 First Edition. If you put her arsenal and driving talents together, she’ll be able to catch or flee from just about anything.
2. Kanta Mizuno from Sunabouzu (Desert Punk)
With Desert Punk, we’re transported to Japan after a nuclear war decimated the country and left it completely barren. Surviving the nuclear holocaust means finding some way to make a living in this desolate wasteland. In this world, Kanta Mizuno, or “Demon of the Desert,” has made a name for himself.
That title wasn’t earned by chance. His ability to complete tasks that no one else could has made him an unstoppable force even at the tender age of 17-years-old. As he zips around and closes in on victims with his shotgun, his dexterity and strategy are unmatched. Having a cynical view of the world, he is able to take on and complete any mission because he is always clear of mind and at times underhanded. His only weakness is being seduced by attractive women, especially if they are particularly endowed. It’s hard to argue with the fact that Katna Mizuno is essentially what every guy who watches anime aspires to be: an expert martial artist and a sex addict.
1. Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop
For those who haven’t seen Cowboy Bebop, the classic follows the crew of bounty hunters as they travel around the galaxy in search of their next target. The crew of the Bebop now consists of four humans and a dog, and each episode is carefully structured to expose more and more about the backstories of the characters.
Despite the fact that every member of the Bebop crew, even the one-off episode character Cowboy Andy, deserves a spot on this list, Spike is the show’s beating heart. After all, it is his storyline that sets the program off and brings it to a close. Moreover, he is the top fugitive hunter in the business. Master of martial arts, pilot and pickpocket; he also has the ability to shoot guns. Even when things go horribly wrong, he still manages to locate and apprehend his prey. As a comedian and one-liner writer, he has a wonderful sense of humor and one of the sharpest minds in anime. Considering all of this, it’s easy to understand why this space cowboy makes the cut.
When compiling this list, it was surprised to see how many shows had the same style of setting. Most of these shows feature huge, desolate settings, which makes perfect sense. People must fend for themselves in these kinds of environments, and law enforcement is unable to intervene. Vigilantes and bounty hunters, it would seem, are both peacekeepers and moneymakers. Are there any bounty hunters that I should have included on this list that I missed?
