We all know what the colour red symbolizes from the previous article, Top 8 Anime Girls with Red Hair. If you have not read this article, red could be described as a colour related to passion, love, joy, courage, and sacrifice. So here are some male anime characters that perfectly fit the descriptions of this burning colour!
8. Hanamichi Sakuragi
Anime: Slam Dunk
Let us start the list with one of the most iconic red hair characters in the anime community! Sakuragi was the leader of the “Sakuragi’s Gang” when he was still a student. He was a violent and lazy student, but when he met and fell in love with Haruko Akagi, it motivated him to join a basketball team to get the girl’s attention.
Lavi is one of the exorcists in this series who was known to be the chosen successor of the Bookman Clan. He is a close friend of Allen Walker and uses a hammer that can change its size to fight Akuma. Lavi tends to be friendly and laid-back, but when handling his Bookman responsibilities, Lavi appears reserved.
6. Soma Yukihira
Anime: Food Wars
Soma is the main character in this series, and he is the son of Jōichirō and Tamako Yukihira, who owns the Restaurant Yukihira. Soma is a determined and hardworking person. He wanted to prove his skills to his father, and while studying at the prestigious school, Tōtsuki Culinary Academy, he learned more about cooking and met different people.
5. Zora Ideale
Anime: Black Clover
Zora is one of the members of the Black Bull squad who uses Trap Magic to fight enemies. He has a foul personality and likes to pull pranks on anyone. Zora does not hold back on anything he says and comes off as rude and disrespectful, but he is actually an intelligent person with a high standard of being a Magic Knight.
Gaara was known to be an antagonist in the first seasons of the anime. He was full of hatred and grew up selfish, but after getting beaten by Naruto Uzumaki, he started to change for the better. Gaara would make decisions to protect the village instead of causing harm to them. Gaara’s story is deep, like any other character from this show which made him worth it to put on this list.
3. Karma Akabane
Anime: Assassination Classroom
Karma is one of the students from Korosensei’s Class 3-E. He was described as violent, mischievous, and a troublemaker, and because of this, he was suspended from school. Throughout the series, he will be one of Nagisa’s close friends and undergo a character development that will change his image. Viewers will see that despite his violent nature, Karma has good values that motivate him to act like this.
Anime: No Game, No Life
Sora is the main character of this series, along with his step-sister, Shiro. He may be the most intelligent person on this list. Despite being a shut-in, Sora and Shiro were both unbeatable in games. Sora is outgoing and would always think two steps ahead before making a decision. Because of this attitude, they got the interest of Tet, the god of Disboard.
Anime: One Piece
And last but not least is the person that inspired Luffy to become a pirate! Shanks is the captain of the Red Hair Pirates and is also known as one of the Four Emperors that rule over the New World. Shanks sacrificed his left arm to save Luffy when he was still a child, and he was also the previous owner of the straw hat, which became significant to both the Straw Hat Crew and the viewers.
There are still many male anime characters with red hair that are famous in the anime community. If you have favourite red-hair characters, you could share them in the comments below! My favourite one from this list is Karma because I adore the close relationship of Korosensei’s Class 3-E. If you have any requests for top-list topics, you could also let us know!
