Like in real life, there are characters in anime that are too full of themselves, and really love themselves too much. For this week’s Charapedia character poll, the Japanese anime character database has asked which anime characters are the ones who they find the most narcissistic and has the biggest EGO.
With 10,000 votes (male: 36.9%, female: 63.1%), Charapedia presented a total of 68 characters, however, only the Top 20 were revealed, and they are:
20 – Mikoto Mikoshiba (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)
19 – Yuu Otosaka (Charlotte)
18 – Kai Nijuuri / Twenty (Milky Holmes)
17 – Tamaki Suoh (Ouran High Host Club)
16 – Yuda (Fist of the North Star)
15 – Hosaka (Minami-ke)
14 – Sachiko Koshimizu (The [email protected]: Cinderella Girls)
13 – Shinji Matou (Fate)
12 – Shuu Tsukiyama (Tokyo Ghoul)
11 – Suzuki (Yu Yu Hakusho)
10 – Takiyashamaru Tairan (Nintama Rantaro)
9 – Ryota Kise (Kuroko’s Basketball)
8 – Cavendish (One Piece)
7 – Kanie Seiya (Amagi Brilliant Park)
6 – Jinpachi Toudou (Yowamushi Pedal)
5 – Suneo Honekawa (Doraemon)
4 – Tooru Oikawa (Haikyuu!)
3 – Kazuhiko Hanawa (Chibi Maruko-chan)
2 – Keigo Atobe (Prince of Tennis)
1 – Karamatsu Matsuno
Yes, Kanie Seiya is just like his namesake and real-life counterpart, Kanye West, as both of them really love themselves and both have huge egos the size of an entire continent, and yes, Takiyashamaru Tairan has been called the “ultimate narcissist,” however, the one who took the top spot in this poll is the Matsuno brother who really thinks he is the best thing that has ever happened to the world, Karamatsu, who may even give Narcissus himself a run for his money.
Given the large number of female voters (63.1%), and as guys tend to be more narcissistic than women apparently, it is also apparent that a lot of anime with a large female fanbase like Mr. Osomatsu, Haikyuu!, and Prince of Tennis , have placed high in these rankings. And it seems that the belief that guys are more narcissistic is evident here in this list, as 19 of the 20 characters voted into the Top 20 are guys! The rose among the thorns is [email protected]’s Sachiko Koshimizu, who can actually give the guys in this list a run for their money about being too full of themselves.
