Top 10 Cat Anime Characters That You Should Know Update 05/2024

Every now and then, you’ll notice a dog gracing the landscape. Cats, on the other hand, rule the roost.

There’s a wide variety of cats out there, from talking felines to those with cat ears and those who add nyan to everything they say. As a tribute to these felines, I’d like to showcase some of the best anime’s cats.

Nyan-speakers will be absent, but there will be plenty of human-like cats and Satan’s children.

10. Maya

Maya From Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

It’s hard to imagine being so disliked by cats that every time you try to pet one, you get bitten.

A typical day for Sugimoto Sasaki.

When Kamineko unhinged her jaw to bite her palm, it seemed to enjoy it greatly. On her journey to Okinawa (which every slice of life anime has for some reason), Maya is ultimately found by Sasaki.

However, Maya is in fact a wildcat. And yet, he’s the only one who’s open to affectionate cuddles and head pats.

He not only let Sasaki pet him, but he followed her home afterward as well.

That’s a serious level of commitment.

9. Neko sensei

Princess Tu Tu: The Anime

When you’re 30 and your family won’t stop bugging you about getting married, do you know how that feels?

Exactly. That’s what Neko sensei is all about. The fact that he is both a cat and a teacher gives him an edge over the average student.

When it comes to getting women to marry him, this man has no qualms about making the most of any opportunity.

No, I’m not talking about constantly putting forth the idea of a marriage proposal. “Oh, I see you haven’t done your homework………… you’re right, you’re right. “You’ll have to marry me as a kind of retribution!”

When another teacher proposes to him, he flees. Finally, he weds a cat at the end of the story.

8. Shamisen

Shamisen From The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Haruhi Suzumiya: The Melancholy of Haruhi

Shamisen reminds me of Schrodinger’s cat in a parallel universe, which is perfect because you already know he’s a cat.

Shamisen appears to be a normal stray cat at first.

Haruhi, on the other hand, chooses to take him home with her so that he might serve as a familiar in her game. Shamisen has the capacity to speak when Karuhi begins to mix up the actual world with the fantasy realm.

He has a deep voice and often talks about morals or other philosophical topics in his speech. In addition, in “The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya,” Shamisen is employed to determine whether Kyon is still connected to the real world. Presumably Shamisen could communicate in this scenario. This is the only way we know for sure.

There is more to him than merely being an adorable feline.

Counting the Days Until Christmas

7. Happy

Fairy Tail and its blue flying fur ball are both represented by this character.

If you will, a mascot.

He was designed to be endearing and wacky because he is mostly used as a source of comedy in the show. Natsu’s fiery temperament and comradery rubbed off on Happy, who had grown up with him for most of his life.

Every time he says, “Aye Sir!” a mischievous grin appears on his face. Also, when he’s upset or unhappy, we all break out the tissues because we know a flood is about to occur.

6. Puck

Puck From Re Zero


A character’s cuteness when they’re joyful makes them more terrifying when they’re angry, as has been demonstrated time and time again. The tests haven’t been done yet, but I’m sure you understand.

When we first meet him, Puck appears to be an upbeat artificial spirit who protects our not-best-girl Emilia and plays pranks on Beatrice and Subaru. Adorable as well.

However, if Puck becomes irate, you’d better get the hell out of dodge.

Puck, even in his most basic form, is a force to be reckoned with, as he represents the Ice Age on a shoestring.

Even yet he’s also got a different form. Let’s just say that he moves from buddy to mister quite quickly.

5. Kuro

Ao no Exorcist is a Japanese anime series (Blue Exorcist)

The devil’s spawn is here, as I predicted!

As a demon, not as a character, he’s a hard one to categorize.

Kuro’s life as a human protector deity started out very good. When others began to disregard him and even demolish his shrine, he was revered.

For whatever reason, he went on a rampage like most cat characters do.

Fortunately, Shiro was there to soothe him with some soothing words and a little hard whiskey. It was wine, but the point is still made.

In the future, Rin would take over headbutting Kuro and sharing his love of wine with his new friends, which he would do with pride.

4. Chomusuke

Chomusuke - Konosuba

Konosuba is a Japanese anime series.

When it comes to Konosuba, Chomusuke is its silent and adorable star. As Megumin’s companion, she is known as “Megumin’s Friend,” which is why she has such a memorable name.

She spends a lot of time resting on Kazuma’s head, making it appear that she is very close to him.

For some reason, she also really enjoys playing with Wiz.

She’s just a regular cat with no special abilities. Don’t worry about the occasional use of fire. It’s just a cat, right?

3. Anpu

In the anime Saiki Kusuo no nan: -Shidou-hen (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.: Reawakened)

Anpu embodies the stereotype of the cat held by dog owners.

Wheezy little cat that feels humans are blessed just for having him in their lives. Through Saiki, who can read his thoughts, we watch him continuously manipulating others around him for his own profit.

He’s used to receiving praise that’s been filtered through his filter. As a result, the cat is enraged by Saiki’s complete lack of interest in him.

Well, he was able to save Anpu from a cockroach once, but it wasn’t quite the victory Anpu had hoped for.

As for Saiki’s wingman role in the first place, that was just weird to say the least.

2. Meowth

Meowth From Pokémon

Pokémon is a popular anime series.

Even if you’re not a fan of anime, chances are you’ve heard of this cat.

Playing one of the villains on one of the most popular kid series ever on television is a surefire way to gain notoriety.

Because Meowth is the most human member of Team Rocket, he’s a fascinating character.

He’s expressed uncertainty about his future plans and expressed sadness over the fact that he and Pikachu aren’t just buddies anymore.

To top it all off, he’s the mastermind behind the operation, designing and constructing everything from the ground up. He’s also an expert at getting Ash and the gang to play along with his little games.

Without narrative armor, one may wonder if he would continue to “blast off.”

1. Madara

TV Series: The Book of Friends of Natsume

Some of the best friendships in anime are formed when two people share an interest in the same subject matter.

Once Natsume’s Book of Friends has been snatched by Madara, the youkai is transformed into a ferocious tyrant.

As a result, the two come to an agreement: if Natsume dies, Madara will receive the book, but in the meantime will act as Natsume’s bodyguard.

The youkai’s and Natsume’s bond would only deepen from there, with the original contract becoming a thing of the past.

When it comes to Natsume, Madara is nothing short of a conceited brat who will do anything to keep him safe. If I may say so, this is a beautiful cat.
