Top 10 Best Sword Wielders In The Anime World
10. Levi Ackerman
Anime: Attack On Titan
Who doesn’t know or like this guy? He’s totally popular among fangirls and equally popular among fanboys, just because of how badass this man is. From killing Titans to fighting for humanity, Levi has shown exceptional swordsmanship, extraordinary control over his sword, and exceptional agility and intelligence. He is a leader of the Scouts, an exceptional titan killer, and an amazing man. Agility combined with extreme skills is the perfect recipe for a badass character.
9. Erza Scarlet
Anime: Fairy Tail
When it comes down to swords, our very own beauty Erza is among the top wielders. Her primary power is wielding a different kind of swords. She has a fire sword, water sword and can manipulate up to 1000 swords together. But, she’s on number 9 of this list because she uses magic to manipulate her swords. Although she needed rigorous practice, still, she doesn’t control them physically. But that doesn’t make her any less badass. She’s an S rank mage of Fairy Tail and is one of the strongest mages in the whole world of Fairy Tail. Beauty with extreme skill. Can there be a combination?
8. Killer B
Anime: Naruto Shippuden
Wielding 8 swords isn’t a matter of joke. And Lord B doesn’t joke around. He’s an extremely skilled fighter, a Jinchuuriki of the eight tails, Gyuuki, and has extreme speed and swordsmanship. He controls all 8 swords together, and he uses them so fast that even the Sharingan is incapable of following them. Fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee. And honestly, Lord B lives up to this phrase, such is his swordsmanship. He’s on number 8 on this list because later in the series, he started using a single sword called Samehada, which he controls with his chakra. That sword can extend and eat it’s opponent’s chakra. Lord B is no doubt a badass swordsman, but there are more badass characters up ahead.
Anime: Naruto Shippuden
Although he wields a sword and is the strongest shinobi alongside Naruto, he’s in number 7. This is because he uses his own strength, Sharingan, and chakra more than his sword. With exceptional sword skills, Sasuke is a super badass character, wielding his powers with only one arm, and his sword with that very arm. He’s an exceptional fighter, but in all his major fights, he uses his chakra and Sharingan powers more than his sword. For instance, in his fight against Naruto, the most anticipated fight in the whole franchise, Sasuke barely used his sword. But in his fight against the eight tails Jinchuuriki, he showed exceptional expertise in swordsmanship. And yeah, he’s very popular in the anime world. A deadly eye and extreme strength, plus exceptional swordsmanship make Sasuke a super badass character.
Being a shinigami isn’t easy. Many challenges come across and so did happen with Ichigo Kurosaki. He wields a large sword, which kind of represents an executioner’s blade. But his Bankai is a full-fledged Katana. Ichigo shows exceptionally good control over his bankai and even without using his bankai’s special powers, Ichigo can express his sword skills in an extremely obvious, yet powerful way.
Sometimes using his “hollow” powers act as an extra push, but apart from that, his pure swordsmanship is extremely well controlled and strong. This anime is all about fighting using swords, and thus as the protagonist, he is undoubted quite a strong character with exceptional sword skills. He has taken down some of the strongest opponents with only his sword. But he’s still at number 6 because, in certain fights, Ichigo would lose control of his hollow and his hollow would fight in his stead. For instance, his fight against Ulquiorra and Byakuya Kuchiki, both of whom are extremely strong. Although, later he gained control over his hollow, and became a strong swordsman.
