Top 10 Cutest Yandere Characters


Anime fans attempt to determine just who the cutest anime psychopath is in this vaguely disturbing ranking…

The ranking:


1. Rena Ryugyu (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)


2. Shion Sonozaki (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)


3. Ryoko Asakura (Haruhi)


4. Kotonoha Katsura (School Days)


5. Mizuki Himeji (Baka to Test)


6. Ayase Aragaki (Ore no Imouto)


7. Hotogi Shirayuki (Hidan no Aria)


8. Blu-rayko (Gintama)


9. Mion Sonozaki (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)


10. Kaede Fuyou (Shuffle!)

Unsurprisingly, the title which practically invented the entire genre still dominates – although School Days does surprisingly badly even so.

    Yanderes, they'll love you to death, literally.

    Yuno from Mirai Nikki is not in?

    Which other Yandere smiles at you cutely and ask you to join her chopping people up?

    I find this list's lack of Yuno disturbing.

    1st, 2nd, 4th and the last two are on my Anime Waifu list. But where is the Yandere Goddess?

    Yuno Gaisai is not on the list. She is the embodiment of a Yandere in its purest form.

    Not to mention she kills HERSELF along with her other earth parents and stuffs them in a room filled with blood and guts along with random body parts

    Yuno was from another earth so when she died her wish was to be reborn in another reality where she could begin the tournament all over again;p She is the VERY DEFINITION of yandere and her not being on this list is an epic fail on the part of sankaku. If your argument for her not being on the list is due to not having an anime that is false caz there was an ova bundled with one of the issues of the manga near the end. Sure she wasn't overly yandere but in the manga oh man... She has no qualm with killing a bitch for even looking at MC

    meh, not exactly. With the whole parallel dimensions and time travel thingy, she doesn't exactly STAY dead.

    meh, Mirai Nikki's ending was deus ex machina at best, no pun intended. I'm not even sure whether the author actually understand what happened or not

    Yuno Gasai is too good for this list it seems. Need to give others a chance.

    Yup, anime soon, things will change in the easily forgotten minds of the everyday anime/manga viewer. It happens. I hope that they keep everything faithful to the original manga and NOT skimp out on the really violent scenes...

    I already see some edits in the works for this show that are gonna be questionable to make it in the show, but let's see how far they can go with it before I start judging.

    You thought Shinji was a whiny little bitch at the start of Evangelion and evolved... somewhat throughout the show?

    The male protagonist in this show takes the meaning of "Evolving protagonist" to a whole new level :D Don't be fooled by his whiny little shit status early on, to anyone who hasn't read the manga and/or feels like dropping it after a few episodes: he gets better... in spades XD

    Maybe because the title has the word "cutest" in it. And Rena takes first place, where she belongs.

    I prefer the type that start out as psychos and stay that way. Yandere contains too much sugar for my tastes.

    Kaedea is one of the first who took it to the next level of extreme.

    Earliest one I know of is Kanako from Love Hina Again, she also was one of the first to have a brother complex.

    Neither were the first in either categories, far from it. I could give you a history lesson but it might take awhile.

    she is not necessary the original yandere but perhaps set a standard for modern yanderes

    Kaeda wasn't the first apparently, but the first one in the new internet age to become a heavy meme with image macros and such.

    She was literally the first major meme I ran across on the net.

    Why is Mion even here? She's not even yandere/yangire, it should've listed Shion instead.

    It DOES listen Shion. On second place.
    But I agree that Mion shouldn't be on this list.

    Just because she gets off on killing, doesn't make her a Yandere.

    A Yandere goes love me, or I'll kill you.
    She never did that with Takashi.

    Heck, considering that Rei is the Tsundere with Takashi, and Saya is rather Tsundere with Kohta, despite her feelings towards Takashi, having someone who isn't all "pay attention to me", in the group is rather refreshing.

    Course she has the type of figure, which kinda forces you to pay attention to her. :P

    Shion should be 1.

    Shion is definitely #1 in terms of being a yandere. Unfortunately the list is "Top 10 cutest yandere" and Rena is definitely cuter in my book.

    Without the disease, none of them would be a yandere. Okay, maybe Shion might still be since she's pretty damn wacko but it'll be use as comedy more than anything

    But you are right though, Shion is the only one who uses "love" as a excuse to go nuts. Rena has some kind of love rivalry with Mion but that's not what made her crazy. Mion never actually went crazy so she definitely does not count.

    When you think about it, Rena isn't much of a yandere either. She needs to get the syndrome and really drown deep into it before she goes psycho.

    When not into the syndrome, she's merely smarter than what she shows, and while she has some sort of psychotic reactions when talking about the curse of Oyashiro-sama lightly, that's nowhere near violent enough for a common yandere.
