Her fighting capabilities are proficient and organized, with limited opportunities, because she possesses both brains and brawn, making her the worst character to confront.

2.Shinya Kogami (Psycho-Pass)

Psycho-pass is one of the most underrated anime because the storyline and the fiction world is way different from the real world, or you can say it can be a future world for us if things keep mutating as the virus does in recent times.

Still, one person who is more famous than anime is Shinya Kogami. He is more famous for his badass character Psycho-Pass is. An anime set in a world where machines can detect or deduce whether or not you are a threat to society.

Yami Sukehiro is one of the best anime characters In anime. Since I saw him, I just loved the way he dealt with people. Even being an outsider in the royal kingdom, he still sticks with his skills.

Everything about Yami is badass. From look to magic and the cigarette and how he teaches his squad to deal with problems. His guild members, especially Asta, are routinely taught his mantra “surpass your bounds.”

When it comes to conflicts or just his day-to-day life, he is a character who can be classified as “badass.”

He can predict his opponents’ actions thanks to his mastery of Ki and mana zone. Another admirable trait of Yami’s is his superb swordsmanship. This can be some of his abilities, such as “Dimension Slash.” It wouldn’t be unfair to consider him one of the anime’s top swordsmen!

4.Ban (Seven Deadly Sins)


Ban is one of the members of seven deadly sins, and the name given to him is the fox sin of greed.

At the first look, you will think he is the devil or someone who is not good to be with and a very bad person, but that’s not the true identity of Ban. He is very kind and has been in love with a fairy forever.

Ban, one of the group’s most important members, is a human who obtained immortality by drinking from the spring of youth, making him ‘unkillable.’

His combat prowess is unrivalled, and he has a special power called “snatch,” which allows him to steal his opponents’ physical talents.
