On this platform, I’ve written a lot of character stereotypes. We’ve got black-haired anime chicks, adorable lolis, and dads, among other things. And, to be honest, all of them are simple to write about (weird flex I know but it is true). However, today’s issue is one that I find very difficult.
Here are the top 10 bearded anime characters, as you may have seen by looking at the headline. This is designed to appear straightforward on paper, in keeping with the rest of the course. However, after researching my first character on the list, I discovered how wrong I had been.
This means that “beard” can also mean “mustache” in Japanese. That’s all there is to it. For the purposes of this list, I’m only going to include characters with mustaches. Even so, if it works, then that’s all that matters. For this list, I’m still able to gather these characters.
Until I learned that I would be canceled due of some click bait. Some people, after all, are adamant about seeing exactly what they’ve clicked on and will not rest until they’ve achieved this goal. Given how dangerous they are if their demands go unfulfilled, I may have to scrap this plan.
You may have to deal with a lot of old men, as most of the bearded characters are elderly. In addition, because I am not a beard expert, I will be discussing topics other than beards. As a result, this is a list that will likely differ greatly from person to person. You’ve all been warned about this.
10. Jirou Souzousuke Shunsui Kyoraku (Bleach)
Because of his laid-back demeanor, this character has aroused my personal curiosity (not in the gay way). He enjoys nothing more than messing around, napping, and making out with his assistants. Talking about the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Lazy people, on the other hand, have a special quality all their own.
I bet you’ve seen other anime where the laziest character is held to a high standard of accountability. Kyoraku is likewise affected by this. It would be a major plot spoiler to tell you what it is right now. Even so, there will be a new season of Bleach out soon enough.
9. Master Roshi (Dragon Ball)
Another illustration of how difficult it is to find bearded males rather than bearded elderly men (oh, how many old men did I put on the list already?) is this perverted turtle sage. That being said, Master Roshi isn’t something I despise. In fact, he’s one of my favorites because he was the driving force behind the creation of the most powerful character in history.
Goku wouldn’t be as powerful as he is today if it weren’t for him. Saiyan powers are great, but they’re useless if you don’t know how to use them. In the past, Kamehameha was utilized by Master Roshi more frequently than by Goku, therefore it should not be forgotten.
8. Thors (Vinland Saga)
Thors is an excellent individual. After completing their voyage, the major protagonists of his novel merely wish to spend their lives in peace and quiet, free of any unnecessary drama. Unfortunately, he was once again drawn into something he didn’t want to be a part of.
By the time this is over, he will be dead. Even towards the twilight of his life, Thors is as powerful as ever. Beards, according to some, aren’t a sign of a man’s masculinity. If you can’t locate anyone else who has one, you’ll still be acting like a complete slob. However, Thors is an exception. Not this guy, for sure.
8. Maes Hughes (Fullmetal Alchemist)
That much machismo is missing from Maes’s physique. He’s not a manly man. He has a shorter beard and a more modest physique. However, he demonstrates it in another way: as a parent who cares and loves his children. That’s a very essential topic to discuss.
There have been times in my life when I have encountered an abusive father who does nothing but harm his family. That’s disgusting and unmanly. That is a vile creature that should not be allowed to exist. Fortunately, Maes is not one of those people. As far as I know, he isn’t a “bad dad”.
7. Saiba Jouichirou (Food Wars)
Jouichirou, a well-known chef who is always on the go, entrusted Totsuki Academy with the care of his son so that he could follow his dream of becoming a chef. At first, it seemed reckless, but we later learnt that Senzaimon had this all planned out for his granddaughter (basically an indirect matchmaking).
As far as I can tell, there are a lot of awful dads in anime, therefore there’s room for more. It’s clear that Jouichirou takes his responsibilities seriously, especially in the face of his reported personal difficulties with Azami. There’s a lot of talk about beards these days. One of his is quite impressive.
6. Asuma Sarutobi (Naruto)
The son is just like his father. Assuma’s beard and smoking habit are eerily reminiscent of Hiruzen’s, his father. Asuma, on the other hand, is quite unlikely to accept it, given his history of tensions with his father.
Because he departed the hamlet, we can presume that it was a significant event. His return to Konoha and willingness to cooperate with his father is a blessing. After Hiruzen died, Asuma admitted that he is a cool dad and apologized in front of Hiruzen’s grave for his behavior.
5. Gildarts Clive (Fairy Tail)
We’ve seen many times before that Fairy Tail’s fierce wizard is the actual boss. There must be a reason he doesn’t show up more often, because if he did, the fight would be so simple and could be completed in one episode rather than a few.
It wasn’t a joke, because there are characters who are so powerful that they don’t feature in the game at all. While some may find it trite and overused, others are unconcerned because Gildarts is, after all, a badass.
4. Aizawa Shouta (My Hero Academia)
Have you ever thought of a teacher who is so outstanding at teaching and loves so much about his or her students that he or she ends up being referred to as their real parents? Exactly the same thing happened to Aizawa-sensei when the first season concluded.
It takes him some time to warm up to his students after beginning as a frigid teacher who doesn’t seem to care about them. Although he didn’t say it outright, he gradually began to demonstrate how much he believes in and is proud of his class’s accomplishments.
2. Askeladd (Vinland Saga)
Askeladd took Thorfinn under his wing after the death of Thors. Thorfinn may appear to be taken advantage of, but he nevertheless managed to teach him a lot of valuable lessons, even if they were delivered in a rather roundabout fashion.. It could be a lesson in warfare or a lesson in life.
It’s worth noting that Askeladd did this out of reverence for Thors and recognition of his own prior selves within Thorfinn. After all these years, he was still a guy bent on vengeance. Isn’t the Vinland Saga a gorgeous and expertly crafted tale?
1. Shanks (One Piece)
Aw, shucks! However, it is Gildarts, but from One Piece. If you can draw that parallel, you’ve been around the block a few times. However, if you’re stumped, then, well… You only have to compare their features side by side to see this.
Even though he doesn’t have a biological father, Shanks acts like a dad to his son despite not having a father of his own. Gildarts is the complete antithesis of this. Since Shanks hasn’t revealed his full strength after all these years, I have no idea which one is stronger.
