In anime, the protagonist is often a high school student who is trying to find their way in life. This list ranks 20 of the most likable anime characters based on their personality and what they stand for.

There are many different types of anime characters that are leos. The 20 best Leo anime characters ranked by likability is a list of the most popular and well liked anime characters that are leos.

Anime and manga provide viewers to a wide world of fascinating characters. This not only lets you hype up your favorite folks on their big day, but it also tells you about their astrological indications. Let’s take a look at some Leo-themed anime characters.

The ego, loyalty, and need to be the center of attention are all traits associated with Leos. However, they do have a few faults that may create problems in their personal life, such as a lack of patience and an explosive temper. Let’s take a look at 20 of the greatest Leo anime characters, rated by how popular they are among anime fans.

When did Leo come into being?

The lion represents Leo, and these passionate fire signs are the rulers and queens of the celestial jungle, thus the Sun transits this sign between July 23 and August 22 in the tropical zodiac. You are a Leo if your birthday falls between these dates.

Anime Characters with the Most Leos

Mereoleona Vermillion – Black Clover (number 20)


Mereoleona is one of the most well-known Black Clover characters. The unbeaten commander of the Crimson Lion team and a member of the Vermillion noble family bares her fangs first to anybody who stands in her way. Mereoleona seems to be frightening, yet she also has a kind side.

Like a loyal Leo, she protects and supports her team, understanding their different personalities and bringing out the best in them. If you persevere through Mereoleona’s tough training, you will succeed.

Tenya Iida from My Hero Academia (1999)


Lida is the student president of U.A.’s Class 1-A. Despite his strict appearance and enthusiasm for following rules to the letter, Lida has struck a connection with My Hero Academia fans for his unwavering devotion and solid friendship.

Lida started off in My Hero Academia as Deku and Uraraka’s third wheel. During the first tournament arc, though, he quickly made a name for himself by demonstrating his lightning speed.

The storyline of Lida dealt with several very delicate subjects. After being assaulted by Hero Killer Stain, Lida assumed the identity of his brother, the renowned hero Ingenium.

Not wanting to risk his friendships, he decided to go it alone against Stain. His companions, fortunately, did not want to see him suffer and came to his aid. Lida is more of a supporting character than the protagonist. He deviates from the traditional Leo in this respect.

His star sign, on the other hand, shines through in his courteous attitude and unshakable dedication to his friends!

Naruto’s Sasuke Uchiha is number 18 on the list.


Sasuke Uchiha is the Child of the Prophecy and a surviving member of Konohagakure’s Uchiha clan. His fascinating origin story adds to his complexity as a villain.

Because Leos are ambitious and want to be the center of attention, Sasuke’s antihero quest starts with a desire for revenge against a brother who betrayed the Uchiha clan. His quest for revenge would drive him to train as a ninja and develop feelings for the series’ heroine.

Sasuke was driven to leave Team 7 in order to become a strong ninja at whatever cost due to a lack of growth and Obito Uchiha’s manipulation. His harsh approach puts him at odds with Naruto Uzumaki.

My Hero Academy – Mina “Pinky” Ashido


Mina Ashido is a carefree and enthusiastic U.A. High School student. She is physically stronger than the rest of her Class 1-A classmates, yet she struggles intellectually. Pinky’s ambition to become a Pro Hero, which is shared by all Leos, is unaffected by this little setback.

Her Corrosive Quirk enables her to use various acid techniques to protect herself and attack opponents. Pinky placed eighth in the Quirk Apprehension Test thanks to her abilities. Mina’s primary passion, though, is dancing.

This is the one activity in which she holds herself and others to a higher standard. Mina’s combination of Quirk ability and flexibility gives her an advantage in melee and support warfare.

Bleach – Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez


Let’s take a look at someone who loves drama as much as a typical Leo. Grimmjow is a shady character. Grimmjow isn’t a generous person. Grimmjow isn’t very nice to his teammates or those in his immediate vicinity.

No, Grimmjow’s favorite pastime is achieving his objectives and putting on a show. Grimmjow is loud, rude, and will say anything he wants regardless of who is listening when we first meet him.

After entering Bleach’s Hueco Mundo story, Grimmjow and Ichigo fight, and we see Grimmjow in his deadly panther form. Grimmjow constantly declares his desire to defeat Ichigo at full strength during the battle.

That the two would eventually face off in a one-on-one battle, with the winner being the last guy remaining. Grimmjow may not be the most loving or loyal person in the world, but he’ll be damned if he doesn’t believe in himself.

15. D.Gray-Man – Lavi


Lavi delights likes being the center of attention. Lavi is brash, energetic, and ready to take on anything with a pulse! Typical Leos, like any other showoff, are not afraid to engage in excessive PDA (public displays of affection). We all know Lavi’s famous “Strike” phrase when he meets a beautiful woman.

Even if one of the females Lavi is drawn to turns out to be an Akuma (Chomesuke), Lavi is unable to ignore his feelings for her and pursue her. Leos are usually devoted to their loves if their love is well-received. 

While Lavi has the confidence of a Leo when it comes to hitting on everything that moves, he must have missed the lesson about loyalty.

D. Gray-man – Cross Marian


Allen Walker’s ill-tempered tutor, Cross Marian, is shrouded in mystery. He is a General of the Black Order and a member of the European Branch of Exorcists. He is regarded as a great leader by the Black Order, although these feelings are evocative of a bygone age.

Wine, women, and gambling provide him pleasure these days. In addition to these delights, Cross’s relationships with others come off as demanding and insulting. Allen believes that Cross is a devil because of the dread he instills in him. He never loses sight of his duties as an exorcist and mentor, despite his outward attitude.    

Cross Marian is a popular figure in the D. Gray-man world, which is unexpected considering his mysterious nature. Katsura Hoshino’s outstanding worldbuilding is responsible for this fact.

Satsuriku no Tenshi — Isaac “Zack” Foster


Isaac Foster is a brutal serial killer who appears in Angels of Death. Zack’s traumatic past drove him to seek vengeance on everyone who enjoyed a happy life.

His life would take on new meaning after a chance encounter with Reverend Abraham Gray. The Reverend would give Zack with a place to live and unlimited killing as part of this experiment. Except for one, he would put to death any unfortunate victims that fell on his floor.

A little girl wants to die, like in a serial killer film, but the murderer is unable to carry out the crime. The two become brief friends as they attempt to flee their imprisonment.

Isaac Foster is a very well-liked anime character. He’s a scary Leo, yet he has moments when he can connect with his humanity. 

12. Haruhi Suzumiya – Haruhi Suzumiya’s Melancholy


It’s everything about Haruhi from the beginning to the conclusion of this insane late-2000s anime that defined a generation of otaku. Haruhi is unconcerned with ordinary people. To get her attention, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort.

Haruhi’s enthusiasm for the supernatural is infectious. She’s witty, a little crazy, and a thrill seeker. Because of her leadership skills and influence on others, Kyon and more of her pupils accompany her on her travels.

Haruhi is a Leo who had an existential crisis after realizing that she really wants to be someone important among the billions of people on the planet, but she didn’t give up and began to live her life as if she were a fascinating person, oblivious to other people’s opinions.

Nanatsu no Taizai by Meliodas


Meliodas is the Dragon’s Sin of Wrath’s protagonist and commander. His young looks and upbeat attitude hide his skills as the Seven Deadly Sins’ courageous warrior commander.

Meliodas, the Demon Clan’s heir, fell in love with a high-ranking member of the Goddess Clan. Their passion became stronger, leading the Demon King to sentence the pair to eternal damnation. Due to his father’s curse, Meliodas’ love would forget about their connection each time she was reborn. 

The downfall of the Demon King and his Ten Commandments by the Seven Deadly Sins is presented against the background of his desire to break the cycle.

Meliodas isn’t your typical Leo or shonen hero, especially when it comes to interactions with the other gender. His outward appearance conceals a deeper emotional bond with a woman who has no memory of their prior meetings. 

10. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU – Hachiman Hikigaya


When it comes to the typical Leo, Hachiman is probably the biggest outlier. He dislikes being the center of attention, he has no clear goals or aspirations, he dislikes drama, and he isn’t particularly generous. Hikigaya is a depressed outcast who symbolizes the rat instead of the magnificent lion.

Those who stick with the show will see that Hikigaya can’t help but put his neck out for the individuals he cares about. Despite repeatedly shouting and monologuing about his misanthropy, he continues to jeopardize his own social status to assist his friends and loved ones accomplish their goals.

Hikigaya’s narrative is a classic coming-of-age tale. It’s almost as though he develops traditional Leo characteristics throughout the series.

Hana Uzaki – Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! 9. Hana Uzaki – Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!


Because to her “sugoi dekai” oppai and her many pranks, Uzaki-can, a noisy girl who doesn’t understand the idea of alone time, follows around her senpai and gets all of the attention she wants.

When Uzaki’s charm fails to elicit the right response from the person she loves about, she decides to take her charm to the next level. Hana Uzaki is a Leo who teases her senpai all the time and demands his full attention.

Assassination Classroom – Nagisa Shiota


The Assassination Classroom’s narrator, Nagisa Shiota, leads Kunugigaoka Junior High School’s Class 3-E in their attempts to save the world. His calm attitude belies a bright kid that is attentive of their surroundings. As a consequence of this trait, he perceives himself as invisible and an ideal target for assassination.

After his parents separated, Nagisa moved in with his mother. Hiromi Shiota longed for a baby girl but was unable to get one. She forced the little boy, who was unable to adapt, to dress as a girl throughout the most of his childhood. After being assigned to Korosensei’s class, he would be able to resist her psychological attack.

In areas where educators and society had already given up, he and his peers would excel both intellectually and physically. Korosensei’s faith in his students’ abilities encouraged Nagisa to pursue a career as a teacher.

Nagisa Shiota, a Leo with a fiery personality, is a beacon of hope who exemplifies the need of supporting environments for personal development. Fans of Assassination Classroom and anime in general love his well-crafted narrative arc.

Yato – Noragami, Noragami, Noragami, Noragami, Noragami


Yato does not exhibit any of the positive characteristics associated with Leos in general, much alone those unique to the typical Leo. Yato is a god, although he has no worshippers or followers. He does odd tasks around town for five yen apiece in order to gain a bigger following.

Yato, on the other hand, is prone to deceiving his fellow man (including his claimed girlfriend, Kofuku), prioritizing his own life above the lives of others, and generally being unconcerned about anything that does not directly impact his own position.

However, after meeting Hiyori, a young human girl, Yato realizes that his actions have consequences for people who really care about him. Yato understands that the quality of his followers is more important than the number of his followers.

Yato, like any other Leo, has high ambitions and wants the limelight from the outset of Noragami. Yato, on the other hand, has made a good stride forward after Noragami and is trying to embrace the more favorable Leo traits of loyalty and friendship!

Shingeki no Kyojin – Sasha Blouse


Sasha Blouse is a young female Survey Corps member. Because of her desire to hoard food and consume potatoes, she is given the moniker Potato Girl.

Sasha was extremely self-conscious as a small-town girl Leo when she joined the military and was unable to handle difficult situations. She develops into a competent fighter who is incapable of abandoning others in need. 

Sasha became a superb archer, horseback rider, and tracker as a result of her ability to survive off the land from a young age. These qualities would get her a job as a sniper, putting her on the road to her death.  

Sasha Blouse is a charming heroine with a strong sense of self-worth who remains loyal to her fundamental beliefs throughout the series. Hajime Isayama had planned to kill her off earlier in the manga, but the book’s editor convinced him to reconsider.

5. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! by Sanae Dekomori


Sanae Dekomori, the agent of the evil lord’s eye, is a high school student and an important supporting character in the anime. She is an intellectually gifted student and the creator of her school’s Far Eastern Magic Napping Society of Summer club.

Long blonde twin tails are connected at the ends with candy bags on this tiny magical warrior. Sanae, a chniby at heart, uses her twin tails or the Mighty Mjolnir Maul to fight ‘Fake Mori Summer.’

Yuuta Togashi, the series’ primary protagonist, often refers to her as ‘Mischievous Dimwit.’ She also has a tendency of speaking in the third person about herself. Despite her flaws, Dekomori is a kind person who is worried about the well-being of her buddy.

Sanae Dekomori, who works as a Leo, is a fantastic foil for Yuuta Togashi and Shinka Nibutani. Her character shows that being responsible does not need one to forsake one’s true self. 

4. Boku no Hr Akademia – Izuku “Deku” Midoriya


My Hero Academia’s main character is Izuku “Deku” Midoriya. Decku, a Quirkless by birth, aspired to be a hero one day. His wish will come true after a chance encounter with the hero All Might.

Izuku is admitted to U.A. High School and placed in Class 1-A utilizing the Quirk All for One. He is a dedicated student who is fascinated with all things heroic. He has limited time for extracurricular activities since he is fascinated with superheroes. Deku’s knowledge, on the other hand, comes in handy when deciding how to successfully negate a villain’s attack style.

Like any excellent Leo protagonist, Izuku Midoriya’s path to become a hero leads him to become an unstoppable force of nature. His adventures and growth never contradict his beliefs as a Quirkless teenager.

3. Manatsu Natsumi “Cure Summer” – TROPICAL-ROUGE! PRETTY REMEDY


From head to toe, Cure Summer is a beautiful Leo. Natsumi awakens to her powers and changes into Cure Summer, who is trendy, popular, beautiful, and lively. She loves cosmetics, and her most prized item is the lipstick her mother gave her. Cure Summer’s lips are her most appealing feature.

Cure Summer, a stunning diva, fights her foes with the ferocity, passion, and flair that only a Leo can muster.

2. Bleach – Ichigo Kurosaki


Ichigo Kurosaki, a Substitute Shinigami, leads a motley band of warriors in defending the mortal and astral worlds. Bleach’s protagonist is introduced as a typical high school student who lives at home with his father and younger twin sisters. Following a fortuitous meeting with the Gotei 13’s lieutenant, his view of the universe and the afterlife would be turned upside down. 

Ichigo has always been able to see and communicate with spirits since he was a child. Rukia Kuchiki approaches him for help in fighting a Hollow because of his skills. This incident sets the stage for his hero’s journey, which will see him battle a variety of enemies like Dark Dragons, Espanda, Hollows, and Shriekers, to name a few. 

Leos are considered to be courageous, protective individuals who will go to great lengths to defend those they care about. With each confrontation, the stakes become higher, but Ichigo and his companions never lose sight of their main goal: to defend their family and friends.

Risa Koizumi – Beautiful Complex


Risa is never taken for granted. She’s tall, attractive, loud, and vivacious. She prefers to show off her strength and determination rather than her softer side. 

Despite their significant height difference, she can’t help but confess her affections for her classmate Ootani when she realizes she has fallen in love with him.

Risa is a Leo who loves romance in secret and fights for her right to date the man she wants, regardless of what others think.
