Shonen Anime's Top 10 Fastest Characters

Shonen Anime's Top 10 Fastest Characters ...

There''s no need to have to be a lot of fun discussions about who is the most popular anime character of all time, but others may also be wondering which character is the most appropriate.

Shonen anime includes ninjas, aliens, pirates, assassins, and other characters capable of making incredible moves. The shows themselves are often vague about how these powers work, but some characters are inarguably faster than others. Here are some of the absolute fastest shonen anime characters.

10 Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)

Bleach''sIchigo Kurosaki developed Shunpo, a technique that allows its user to move faster and more powerful than the human eye can follow. With each of the various transformations that Ichigo undergoes throughout the series, he''s a true monster in combat.

Landing blows and dangling those of the opponent come as second nature to him, and only the most powerful or foolish characters try to face off in a fight.

Azusa (I''ve been killing slimes for 300 years)

Azusa, a Witch of the Highlands, has gained fame thanks to three centuries of slime-killing. I''ve been killing slimes for 300 years...is full of powerful characters, but Azusa isn''t a complete stranger when it comes to speed.

Azusa is able to use her witchcraft to make herself invisible, flying, and teleport wherever she wants more or less whenever she wants, and her host of other magical abilities ensure that she is capable of accomplishing her mission once she arrives.

8 Koro Sensei (Assassination Classroom)

Koro Sensei, a bright yellow, smiling-faced alien who pledged to destroy Earth unless one of his teenage students approaches him, is unlike any other shonen character. The homeroom teacher of Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School is capable of reaching speeds of at least Mach 20, traveling the world for lunch on awhim.

Koro Sensei is one of the most difficult shonen characters to kill, combined with his immune to poison and ability to regenerate, making his students'' mission a lot less challenging.

7 Jojiro Takajo (Charlotte)

Jojiro from Charolotte proves that he''s more than deserving of his position. Jojiro accelerates enough that time slows down, indicating that he is approaching the speed of light.

Given his incredible abilities and leadership on the student council, Jojiro''s speed comes with a significant drawback: he can''t control when or when he stops. This flaw in his authority has resulted in considerable damage as well as Jojiro almost dying on more than one occasion.

6 Saitama (One-Punch Man)

Saitama, the villain of One-Punch Man, a gag manga character spanning a dark world, is exceedingly overpowered in every way, capable of doing completely over-the-top and unjustified feats, including moving at ridiculous speeds, permitting him to return to Earth in just a second and a half.

Saitama''s ability is due to his unwillingness to actually push himself to discover the full potential of his capabilities. It''s important to remember that Saitama doesn''t take any responsibility enough to be concerned about that sort of thing.

5 Minato Namikaze (Naruto)

Minato Namikaze, the fourth hokage of the Hidden Leaf village, was known as the Yellow Flash for his unrivaled speed. When it came to movement, the inventor of the Rasengan technique outclassed every other ninja in his village.

Minato will always be known for his speed in an instant using his Body Flicker Technique, which appears to be actually teleporting, giving his speed less time than the speed of light.

4 Goku (Dragon Ball)

The greater the viewer enters into Dragon Ball, the faster and more powerful Goku becomes. Even early on, he appears to be completely disappearing completely due to the explosions of concussion that his punches and kicks leave in his wake.

Add to that his Instant Transmission capability, which allows him to teleport without having to do anything else, and Goku is easily one of the best shonen players in existence. With a wide range of Super Saiyan power levels to strengthen his abilities, Goku is only likely to get faster.

3 Jotaro Kujo (Jojo''''s Bizarre Adventure)

Jojo''s Bizarre Adventure is filled with oddball characters with wild powers known as Stands, but one of the strongest of all belongs to series protagonist Jotaro Kujo. Jotaro''s Stand Star Platinum gives him the ability to punch at the speed of light.

Star Platinum allows Jotaro to keep time for several seconds. This is because time manipulation is itself a result of faster-than-light speeds, therefore there are at least two useful arguments for Jotaro being one of the fastest shonen characters around. It''s a good thing that Jotaro is as fast as he is given the pain his family endures throughout the series.

2 Borsalino (One Piece)

Borsalino, the most popular character in One Piece, is the user of the Devil Fruit, known as the Glint-Glint Fruit, which allows him to transform into light. As a result, Borsalino can - by definition - travel at an all-time low speed, allowing him to make unexpected moves across the battlefield.

It''s no wonder he became an admiral of the Marines. But he is also capable of generating beams of charged light that result in massive damage and utilizing his light abilities to give his kicks the power he requires.

1 Whis (Dragon Ball)

Whis is the Guide Angel Attendant of Beerus, the God of Destruction, and anyone in the direct service of a god should bring something special to the table. Whis, as it stands, is one of the most grossly overpowered shonen characters around, and his speed is only one manifestation of that.

Whis can travel at roughly five septillion times the speed of light, a force that by itself makes him absolutely godlike in comparison to any other shonen character. It''s truly fortunate that despite working for a God of Destruction, Whis is one of the finest in Dragon Ball.
