In many Asian cultures, long hair is regarded as a mark of social rank. Samurai in feudal Japan wore their long hair in topknots to symbolize their status as noble and elegant warriors. Anime characters with long hair are often depicted as either intelligent or powerful.
We’ll take a look at some of the best anime characters with long hair. The subjective nature of the term “long hair” necessitates defining it as hair that reaches the jawline or longer, as in the case of Rapunzel. For this list, we can also neglect hair color and other physical characteristics.
1. Light Yagami (Death Note)
Light As a young man, Yagami stood taller than typical, his light brown hair and brown eyes complementing his features. As a result of his intelligence and hard effort, he is an excellent problem-solver and planner. With his classmates and family, he’s a good friend, but his intelligence occasionally causes him to overestimate his own importance.
‘Light’ is a young man who seeks to bring balance to the world. However, his sense of justice is corrupted when he utilizes an all-powerful notepad to eliminate whomever he considers “evil.” Light is on a mission to change the world by all means necessary so that only good and honest people live there.
2. Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (Noblesse)
Nobles and commoners alike have praised Raizel for his striking good looks and refined manners. He doesn’t know much about the twenty-first century, and his gorgeous red eyes often cause others to fall over him because of their beauty. His black hair makes him even rarer than other Nobles who normally wear silver hair or gold locks instead of dark ones like him compared to others.
3. Ukyo (Amnesia)
As a tall, slim, green-haired young guy, Ukyo has a braid and long hair. Both his compassionate and forceful sides may be seen in his personality; in anime, he is portrayed to be both supportive and important for advise on various planets.
4. Byakuya Kuchiki (Bleach)
He is an honorable captain with gray eyes and black hair. He wears intricate white headpieces called kenseikan to keep his hair in place, signifying his status as the Kuichi Clan’s supreme leader. Besides the captain’s outfit, he wears a special scarf that only high-ranking nobility can wear. Byakuya, the 28th head of the Kuchiki clan, is aristocratic in his demeanor. When confronted with difficult situations, he appears calm and unconcerned. When chatting to Ichigo Kurosaki, though, he gets very upset when his name isn’t spoken correctly.
5. Grell Sutcliff (Black Butler)
Grelle is a demonic red-clad creature with horns. Shark fangs and chains of skulls dangling from his glasses complete his look. Like other Grim Reapers, his eyes are phosphorescent chartreuse, and he wears a vest and gloves to disguise his appearance while hunting for souls on Earth. Grelle is a fiery, red-obsessed warrior who takes no prisoners. Grelle will viciously kill everyone who stands in the way of their goal of obtaining beauty with red if they can’t control their emotions.
6. Sesshōmaru (Inuyasha)
Despite his status as a formidable Inu-Daiykai, Sesshmaru has long been held in high regard as Toga’s most beautiful son. Only in looks can you tell him apart from his half-brother; he has fair complexion and pointy ears that offer him distinct characteristics. His pupils are crooked and his eyes are cockeyed. Seshoumaru can wear his bangs brushed across either of his eyes, or both if he so chooses, because they are long and white. His long bangs obscure the crescent moon on his forehead, yet it nevertheless signifies what makes this daiyoukai unique among the rest: the magenta stripes surrounding either cheek elicit anxiety in the viewer.
7. Tomoe (Kamisama Kiss)
There is no shortage of admirers for Tomoe because of his over-the-top beautiful looks. The most of the time, he just tolerates the attention and doesn’t want anything more than that. Tomoe appears to be in his late teens or early twenties, but he is actually hundreds of years old! Silver-white hair and large ears allow him to manipulate his tail-like tail-like tail when necessary. A man of Tomoe’s caliber is hard to come by. He’s smart and cunning, but he also understands when to show his gorgeous face or put on an act for others in order to obtain what he wants.
8. Gajeel Redfox (Fairy Tail)
Gajeel has long black hair and is a tattooed and pierced punk. He wears studded bracelets with a wing sleeve and a variety of body piercings (somewhat resembling the Punk style). A low-quality costume, including boots, is what Gajeel is wearing in order to terrify his foes.
The Phantom Lord’s dark markings can be seen on Gajeel’s right shoulder. Both Gajeel and Natsu have a short fuse when irritated, despite their personalities appearing to be polar opposites.
9. Kars (JoJo’s Bizarre adventure)
The Stone Mask was designed by Kars, the leader of the Pillar Men. To keep the strength of his Masks from being diminished by sunlight, he wants to grow even farther. Kars wants to get a Red Stone from Aja, but it has already been discovered!
He must take on Ripple users who already know where it is before he does anything! To have any chance of success, you’ll need both wit and wisdom. As one of the Pillar Men’s greatest minds, Kars is devoted to attaining the Red Stone of Aja with unwavering focus.
Although he looks to be an unquestioning follower of commands, this appears to be a superficial impression. Kars is a master of sarcasm, and he often employs subtle humor as a disguise when others aren’t savvy enough to see right through him.
10. Kanzaki Hideri (Blend-S)
His father is a farmer, and Hideri despises field work, yet he aspires to one day be an idol. Instead of taking over his parents’ farm, he applied for a waitress position because he wanted to be more feminine. Even in “An Idol Character Too,” Hideri was adamant on what attire would look best on him, going against one other person’s judgment by claiming it looked nice even if they didn’t both think it did. At times, it appears that while attempting to be feminine and feminine, more male features can emerge, such as when a roach is killed with no difficulty despite wearing gowns.
