Anime doesn’t have a lot of characters who are handicapped. These 10 wheelchair-bound anime characters are some of the best examples of their kind.
Anime characters aren’t all created equal, and some are better than others. Some are cowardly cowards, while others are downright nasty. Anime characters that need wheelchairs, on the other hand, are virtually universally shown as being fierce.
1. Mimori Tougou
Yuki Yuna wa Yuusha de Aru (Yuki Yuna is a Hero)
To be a hero, what does it take? As a group, they must come up with their own solution to this subject. Answering this issue requires Mimori, who is confined to a wheelchair, to accept and exceed her condition. Mimori is a hero in anyone’s book because she refuses to allow her disability keep her from protecting her companions.
2. Nunnally Lamperouge
Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion)
To put it nicely, Nunnally has had a terrible time of it. A victim of gunshot wounds to the legs, Nunnally’s short existence has been littered with loss and misery. It doesn’t matter that she’s a princess or that she has a disability; she’s still nice and generous. Her brother, Lelouch, would do anything to protect her, thus it’s no surprise that she’s one of the series’ most powerful characters.
3. Ayase Shinomiya
Despite being paralyzed from the waist down, Ayase refuses to ask for aid. Endlave pilot Ayase is unafraid to rely only on her own abilities, regardless of her physical limitations.
To punish Hinowa for attempting to flee, she was rendered paralyzed and forced to serve as a courtesan at Yoshiwara Paradise. Hinowa’s courage is unbroken in the face of her predicament. Everyone who comes into contact with her admires and respects her because of her outstanding personality and positive view on life.
5. Mariko Kurama
Mariko, often known as Number 35, is confined to a wheelchair as a result of being imprisoned in a cage when she was a youngster. While Mariko’s physical and mental abilities were severely limited, she was able to grow intellectually, even if the experience left her with an uncontrollable desire to hurt others. On this list, Mariko is the only character who is truly evil.
6. Michella Watch
Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront)
Due to her birth defect, Michella is no stranger to the concept of self-denial. It’s possible that’s why, when the time comes, she’ll sacrifice her vision to aid others.
7. Rena Rune
Sousei no Aquarion (Aquarion)
Rena had a rough start in life, to say the least. An albino woman in a wheelchair who is also visually impaired. Her impairments are mitigated by her extraordinary abilities, which allow her to teleport and “read” a sacred text, among other things.
8. Sylvette Suede
Tegami Bachi (Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee)
Unless provoked, Sylvette is devoted to her brother and loving. Although disabled from birth, she has the ability to become frightening and violent when the situation calls for it. Her soup is a no-no!
9. Ayame Jinguuji
Ga-Rei: Zero (Ga-Rei-Zero)
Ayame has a heart of gold and a strong work ethic. Whether you’re a person or a ghost, everyone merits the -chan honorific in her eyes. Minister of Environment Ayame’s charisma and ability to keep a cool head have earned her the admiration of all those who know her.
10. Keith Blue
Keith Blue is the first of Project Arms’ “Keiths” to survive the ARMS implantation, making him more than simply another “Keith.” He was paralyzed and placed on life support as a result of the treatment, but that didn’t stop him from taking on the organization that had injured him. Regardless of the consequences, Keith Blue, a talented leader, always does what he believes is right, regardless of the opposition.
