In the minds of anime fans, waifus are the perfect companions, and some of them are even regarded as the greatest of all-time.
There are thousands of well-known fictional characters in the Japanese anime universe, and these characters can be well-known for a variety of reasons. The bravery and courage of classic shonen protagonists and shojo heroines inspire girls around the world. A waifu from an anime would be an interesting alternative.
If you’re a fan of anime, your ideal life mate is an anime waifu, usually a female character with desirable characteristics such as good looks and intelligence as well as other qualities like loyalty and wit. However, certain waifus have established themselves as clear favorites and can be rated roughly according to popularity and merit.
1. General Esdeath Is Brutal But Caring, Too (Akame Ga Kill!)
When it comes to her military career, General Esdeath is known for her “survival of the fittest” mentality and her devastating ice-based powers. Her tribe’s survival was always at stake, so Esdeath learnt to be practical and pragmatic in all aspects of her life.
While serving as a general, Esdeath held to the belief that the weak deserve to die and the strong deserve to rule. Despite this, she quickly developed feelings for Tatsumi, treating her like a devoted girlfriend before understanding that Tatsumi is her archenemy. Anime fans, on the other hand, have a soft spot for her as an ice queen.
2. Miku Nakano Will Try Her Best (The Quintessential Quintuplets)
All five of the Nakano sisters are endearing in their own way, but Miku, the middle child, has cemented her place as the Quintuplets fandom’s favorite waifu. Danderes like Miku are sweet and loving, but they can also be incredibly shy and meek.
Miku, unlike Itsuki and Nino, has a tendency to be reticent and quiet, but she’ll do her best to impress her mentor Futaro and confess her genuine feelings for him. The only problem is that she isn’t exactly a master baker. That’s fine; there’s always another opportunity.
3. Kaguya Shinomiya Is Smart And Endearing To All (Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War)
Although Kaguya Shinomiya originates from one of the most affluent and influential families in Japan, she does not want her status to define her. Kaguya, on the other hand, prefers to pursue her own interests and use her own power to achieve her goals. Even with a staff of maids and butlers, she still has a lot to deal with on her own.
In the past, Kaguya Shinomiya was known for her icy exterior, but that’s long gone now. With the help of her newfound kindness and intelligence, she has become a friend to everyone she meets, from Chika and Yu all the way to Nagisa. She can even outwit Miyuki Shirogane when the latter is on her game. Charmingly, she’s also somewhat innocent but sincere.
4. Yoruichi Shihoin Is Funny, Caring & An Expert Fighter (Bleach)
The ninja-like Yoruichi Shihoin has risen to the top of Bleach’s cast of potential waifus, which includes Rukia Kuchiki, Orihime Inoue, and Rangiku Matsumoto. A strong and unforgettable character in Bleach, she makes a great waifu.
Yoruichi’s attractiveness isn’t the only thing that makes her popular; she also has a positive outlook on life and a strong sense of duty and loyalty that make her an ideal companion. Additionally, she’s tough and dependable, and a skilled fighter who won’t hesitate to take down anyone who comes between her and her beloved companions.
5. Mikasa Ackerman Is Loyal & Cool (Attack On Titan)
Eren Yeager had a childhood friend named Mikasa Ackerman, but their friendship has soured due to the events of the anime. It’s safe to say that every single Attack on Titan fan is rooting for Mikasa rather than Eren. Her actions were not to blame for this.
In terms of her own abilities as a waifu, Mikasa is an excellent choice. She is a devoted, kind, and protective person who is also attractive and a good fighter. In a world where emotion is all but extinct, she still manages to be very sentimental. She is, in her own quiet way, a ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy world.
6. Zero Two Is A Committed Mecha Pilot (DARLING In The FRANXX)
In the FRANXX anime, Zero Two is often regarded as the best section of the DARLING. The character of Zero Two is not one of the many problems with this particular mecha anime. He became an instant fan favorite when he first appeared in the series.
Zero Two is well-known for her odd but endearing personality traits, her fearsome demeanor in battle, and her unwavering devotion to Hiro, not to mention her intriguing origin story as a humanoid monster with horns on its head. Stelizia, the most powerful mecha in the series, is also piloted by her.
7. Erza Scarlet Is A Heartfelt Swordswoman (Fairy Tail)
From Lucy Heartfilia herself to Juvia Lockser the megadere and the scholarly Levy McGarden, the Fairy Tail anime has quite a few potential waifus. Erza Scarlet, however, is perhaps Fairy Tail’s best waifu and one of anime’s top waifu in general.
Erza has a lot to offer fans of Yoruichi Shihoin or Zero Two, from her strong but fair demeanor to her secret love side to her outstanding combat capabilities and humorous hobbies. Besides Jellal Fernandez and armor, Natsu and Gray can count on her to behave as a responsible big sister when the occasion calls for her. What an inspiration.
8. Hinata Hyuga Learned To Love Herself (Naruto)
Naruto’s Hinata Hyuga, a dandere who was inspired by Naruto Uzumaki’s words of wisdom during the Chunin Exam tale arc, is a memorable character. It altered the modest Hinata’s life, and she’s been working hard ever since to live up to Naruto’s expectations.
Hinata has matured into a fearless shinobi who is willing to put her life on the line for the sake of her community and her comrades. In Boruto, Hinata and Naruto are happily married, and Hinata is an excellent wife and mother to her children. It’s all there for her.
9. Tohru Is A Scaly Maid (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid)
Tohru, a powerful dragon who can assume the appearance of a fair-haired young woman dressed as a maid, is a unique take on the “magical girl” concept. Even though Tohru’s journey into the real world is an example of reverse-isekai, she retains much of her imagined identity.
Tohru is easy to like because she can do it all—fight off punks and monsters, run errands, have fun discovering the world as a newcomer, tend after Kanna, and most of all, be a fantastic friend to Kobayashi herself — and she does it all with style. Anyone would be delighted to have this dragon as a guest.
10. Rem Is Another Loyal Maid Warrior (Re:Zero)
Even though Rem is a servant like Tohru, she is not a dragon and Subaru Natsuki is her friend, who ended up in another planet. Even though they were servants at the Mathers mansion when Rem first debuted, Rem and her pink-haired sister Ram are capable of so much more than housekeeping.
Rem was skeptical of Subaru at first, but she quickly became one of his most important allies and battled valiantly on his behalf for a time. Rem is adored by fans because of her likable demeanor, strong sense of loyalty and duty, combat capabilities, and, of course, her attractive appearance and easygoing nature.
