White-haired anime characters are my favorite, and I’ve probably talked about it a thousand times. To be honest, I completely forgot about how much I adore “simple” brown-haired anime boys! Even my favorite anime character, Lelouch, has brown hair!

Putting this list together was a lot of fun for me. The number of brown-haired anime men in MaL’s top ten most popular characters surprised me. My eyes were drawn to the color of their hair for the first time in my life.

This list was generated with the help of the MaL database.

12+ of the most popular anime boys with brown hair.

14. Conan Edogawa

Conan Edogawa

The Detective Conan anime series.

Is there anyone who has not heard of this recognizable character? Even though he appears to be a child, it is only because he has been poisoned that he looks like this.

Detective Conan, the show’s name, refers to Conan’s naivete and deductive abilities, which are valuable in solving mysteries.

13. Tooru Oikawa

Haikyuu!! is the title of the anime series in question.

Volleyball is a sport that this womanizer excels at.

Many times throughout the series, Tooru shows his knowledge and cunning by analyzing the vulnerabilities and strengths of both his opponents and his teammates.

12. Keima Katsuragi

Keima Katsuragi

The World God Only Knows is an anime series.

If I recall well, someone once said that they were only drawn to 2D waifus and not 3D girls. In the same way, so does Keima.

He’s a reclusive gamer who also has a hard time connecting with the real world.

His grades are still the best in the school in spite of the fact that he’s actually perma playing (even in class). Despite the fact that his opinion on 3D girls has evolved over time, he is still loyal to 2D girls and prefers them to actual ones.

Yes, Keima is a master! Also, geniuses are an odd breed.

11. Sakuta Azusagawa

Rascal Doesn’t Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is an anime series.

Sakuta has a superb poker face and emotionless manner of communication.

He doesn’t seem to care what other people think of him, and he frequently engages in inappropriate behavior with the women he meets.

10. Kyon “John Smith”

Kyon 'John Smith'

Series title: Haruhi

Kyon is a member of the SOS Brigade, a group where supernatural events are commonplace. As a member of a supernatural club, Kyon is the only “regular” person who does not have a particular ability.

An educated and insightful child, he has difficulty confessing his feelings for others and has a jaded outlook.

9. Shinji Ikari

Episodes of Evangelion, a Japanese anime series

Shinji is the protagonist of Evangelion and a designated pilot of Unit-01.

As a result of his painful childhood experiences, he’s an easygoing and introverted person who is extremely sensitive and emotional. Nuanced and relatable are common descriptors used by Evangelion fans to describe him.

Even if Shinji isn’t ideal, he’s an accurate representation of adolescent boys of his day.

8. Kazuma Satou

Kazuma Satou

The KonoSuba anime series

Prior to entering the Fantasy World, he was a passionate gamer who led a solitary existence.

A more extroverted and gregarious person emerges after returning to the Fantasy World. This explorer is shown as an intellectual snarky person.

7. Osamu Dazai

Bungo Stray Dogs is an anime series.

His name is Osamu, a member of the Armed Detective Agency and a genuinely intriguing and wonderful person.

As a humorous relief, the series’ suicidal maniac frequently gets caught in amusing attempts to take his own life.

Whenever Osamu is around, it’s easy to like him for his laid-back demeanor and sense of humor.

6. Houtarou Oreki

Houtarou Oreki from Hyouka

The Hyouka anime series

Then then, just look at him. You can already see it.

Like his appearance, Houtarou is aloof, cynical, and uninterested. He doesn’t say much and comes across as heartless and unconcerned when he does.

The Classics club at school, where he makes friends, turns out to be a good fit for him because of his natural ability for solving puzzles.

5. Eren Yeager

Shows such as the Japanese animated series Attack on Titan

The second character from Attack on Titan is Eren Yeager.

He is the protagonist of the anime series Attack on Titan. With the strength of the Titan at his disposal, he is an invaluable member of the Survey Corps.

Stubborn and impulsive, Eren is noted for being strong-willed and determined. He values his relationships with his fellow soldiers and friends tremendously.

4. Vegeta


Dragon Ball is an anime series.

The fallenSaiyan kingdom’s prince, Vegeta, reigns supreme.

Because of his Saiyan temperament, he is depicted as someone who will go to any lengths to get what he wants, without remorse.

Vegeta is a self-confident, hard-working, serious, and clever individual. While he may come out as haughty and uncaring to others, he actually cares about them. He gradually develops a more laid-back demeanor during the course of the show.

3. Light Yagami

Death Note is an anime series.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Light Yagami at some point in your life. As a result, it comes as no surprise that he is among the top three. At all, to be precise. To those familiar with the Death Note anime, he is most known as the show’s antagonist.

Light has a reputation as a brilliant thinker and a dedicated student who always goes the additional mile to do well in class and get the respect of his peers and family members alike.

He discovers a weird notebook that gives him the ability to kill anyone whose name is written in it as he visualizes their face in his thoughts.

As soon as he was polluted by the notebook’s power, Light’s sense of justice was distorted. He becomes cold-hearted, calculating, and cruel in his quest to cleanse the world of bad human beings.

2. Levi Ackerman

Levi Ackerman (Attack On Titan)

Shows such as the Japanese animated series Attack on Titan

Captain Levi, despite his diminutive stature, is a rock star. He’s a Survey Corps squad captain and well-known for being the strongest human soldier.

In spite of his appearance, Levi cares deeply for his team and resents the loss of any of them.

My ideal man is someone who is obsessed with cleanliness (he’d be an excellent husband).

1. Lelouch Lamperouge

Code Geass is an anime series.

Animage magazine’s annual Anime Grand Prix named him the most popular male character of 2006, 2007, and 2008. He has remained at the top of the MaL rankings to this day.

He’s my soul mate.

Upon first impressions, Lelouch, alias Zero, is a sociable and intelligent high school student who appears to be carefree. However, this is just the surface. There’s something sinister about him, something he carries with him like a dark cloud from his traumatic and cruel past. Despite being a royal, he was betrayed and exiled.

Once helpless, Lelouch acquires an enormously powerful ability, known as “Geass,” which will allow him to destroy the Holy Britannian Empire.
