For many anime weebs like me, there is something alluring about male characters with flowing long black hair. Whether cool and confident or kind yet complex, these handsome male characters leave an impression with their dark locks.
Their beautiful hair is often a signature part of their aesthetic and adds an air of refined mystery to their personality and backstories. In this article, we will look at some of the most iconic male anime characters with long black hair and understand what makes their hair and overall image so captivating to viewers.
14: Suguru Geto
Anime: Jujutsu Kaisen
I want to begin our list with the iconic new-gen anime villain Suguru Geto. Honestly, I used to love Geto before I witnessed the grossest scene of Kenjaku within the head of Geto.
Once known as the bestie of badass prodigy Saturo Gojo, Geto becomes a dreadful curse user villain after witnessing the cruelty of human selfish nature. Dark long black hair, Yakuta dressing, and tall height definitely make sense as to why he’s beloved by many Otakus.
13: Xie Lian
Anime: Heaven’s Official Blessing
One thing that I always love about Chinese anime aka “Donghua” is their well-detailed character designs. If you doubt me, make sure to witness Xie Lian from heaven’s official blessing that is widely considered one of the best male anime characters with long black hair.
In terms of appearance, Xie Lian is considered a peerless beauty with formidable strength though he looks pale and fragile. He’s not only good-looking and powerful but also a kind prince who is determined to help commoners. As a whole Xie Lian is custom tailored to be loved.
12: Cadis Etrama Di Raizel
I want you to picture a character who is astonishingly beautiful, tall, rich, modeling physique, and long black hair with scarlet red eyes but fails when interacting with modern-day technology such as cell phones and computers; this is the protagonist Cadis Etrama Di Raizel of Noblesse anime.
Cadis Etrama Di Raizel lack of engagement with modern tech serves as comic relief in this dark fantasy. He may look cold and emotionless from the outside but a softie from the inside who holds compassion for humans. As very few fans are familiar with this anime Cadis Etrama Di Raizel seems ghost to many yet better than many anime characters.
11: Izumi Miyamura
I think I am the only one who would prefer Miyamura with long black hair instead of the usual messy haircut he receives after meeting with Kyouko Hori. I mean is this necessary to change the haircut of the introvert MC to show his character development? Though this happens most of the time in anime.
To his classmates at school, Izumi came across as your typical moody loner until crossed paths with the famous Kyouko Hori. I mean what can you expect from a punk-like dude with lots of piercing long black hair and tattoos all over his body? But to everyone’s surprise, he was the caring, responsible one – cooking, cleaning, and warm soul who later fell in love with Hori San.
Anime: Samurai Champloo
If any of you haven’t watched the classic samurai adventure “Samurai Champloo” you’re missing a party of intriguing anime characters like arrogant Mugan, determined Fuu, and long black hair cold male samurai Jin.
Jin is a mysterious samurai with long grey hair flowing down his back. Extremely skilled with his katana, he traveled the land with his party seeking to perfect his sword techniques. His true goals remained unclear. But one thing was certain, Jin’s steady blade and calm focus brought stability to Champloo’s chaotic story.
9: Baji Keisuke
Anime: Tokyo Revengers
While talking about the loyal dude, how can somebody forget about Baji Keisuke from Tokyo Revengers? Keisuke Baji was a original founder of Toman alongside Mikey and helped establish the gang from the beginning, playing a vital role in its formation and serving as the First Division Captain.
Baji possesses attractive long black locks with a very lean physique. Honestly, Baji is a wild character who loves the thrill of adrenaline. I am not a big fan of Tokyo Revengers’ overrated storyline but what kept me sticking is its intriguing characters like Keisuke Baji.
8: Sebastian Michaelis
Anime: Black Butler
Sebastian Michaelis is a demon butler from anime, please don’t compare this hell of a butler with Batman’s butler because this sadistic demon can perform any horrible acts according to the wish of his master.
The butler job doesn’t fit the character description of this one of the beautifully designed long black hair characters. There’s no holding back in the list of this butler’s abilities, immortality, cooking, superhuman strength, manipulating, and many others including criminal specialties.
7: Giyu Tomioka
Anime: Demon Slayer
Despite being an emotionless depressed character in Demon Slayer, there’s no denying that Giyu is obviously one of the aesthetically rich anime characters with long black hair and blue eyes.
So far in Demon Slayer we haven’t seen Giyu’s emotions very much because he’s a depressed freak struggling to overcome the past events that caused the death of his close friends. He’s such a freak who wasn’t aware that most people in the Demon Slayer corps hated him until Shinobo told him.
6: Kurou Yatogami
Anime: K Project
In the list of anime characters with long black hair Kurou Yatogami may be ranking a bit lower but if there were a list of true gentlemen anime characters, I bet Kurou Yatogami would ace the list with his charismatic personality.
Kurou Yatogami is one of the main characters from the mystery action anime of 2012 “K Project”. I bet he’s the most beautiful anime character in the whole anime who is often recalled as a hottie by many females of K Universe. Despite having killer looks, my boy values the actions of other beings to judge their personality.
5: Eren Yaeger
Anime: Attack on Titan
Those who were not manga readers like me were tricked when Eren Yeager appeared in long locks as Mr. Kruger in Marley act. Frankly, that was the look perfectly suited for our badass anime character who was ready to throw everything for revenge.
As AOT has officially ended, we can’t forget the horrible and sometimes motivational acts of Eren Yeager the devil child.
4: Shinpei Ajiro
Anime: Summer Time Rendering
Summertime Rendering is one of the most underrated mystery anime with intriguing characters like Shinpei Ajiro. In the list of casual dudes, Shinpei Ajiro is a consideration with long black tied hair, deep blue eyes, and casual outfit.
Shinpei Ajiro is the main protagonist of a hidden mystery gem by OLM Studios’ Summertime rendering with 8.5 Mal ratings. If you’re the one who says the strongest bond is between blood-related relations, I bet Shinpei will prove you wrong with his wholesome care towards his close ones.
3: Kenzo Tenma
Sometimes good deeds turn out to be the worst choices for men and the best example of this you can witness by observing the role of charismatic Dr. Kenzo Tenma in Monster anime.
Just imagine what could possibly go wrong with a man, who is a skilled neurosurgeon and has a bright future ahead, and yet his good deed of giving equal services to everyone turns out to be his biggest mistake. If you haven’t watched Monster yet, make sure you do to witness the eternal beauty of this long black hair character.
I don’t think Hyakkimaru of Dororo needs to be recalled as a beautiful anime character as he was born as a pitiful disabled child born to be abandoned. Honestly, it’s the back story and character growth of Hyakkimaru that makes Dororo such good anime.
Despite his soul-chilling appearance, with metal joints clicking in the night, beneath lives a spirit of defiance against the demons that stole his humanity. Hyakkimaru’s journey is one of rediscovery – of himself and of the connections to his mysterious origins that may hold the keys to his future.
1: Madara Uchiha
In the list of male anime characters with long black hair, Madara Uchiha, the renowned leader of the Uchiha clan reigns supreme. Also known as the strongest villain in Naruto Universe, there are so many things that made him an unforgettable character like his ultimate peace motive, his awful background, and thought-provoking quotes.
Madara’s long black spiky hair along with beautiful eyes gives him the killer look of a formidable antagonist. As Naruto anime is quite old, I am not giving Madara the first place due to its character design but for his popularity among millions or maybe billions of Naruto fans.
Here we wrap up our list of best male anime characters with long black hair, although there would be many I have skipped only due to their less popularity and role in their anime.
