Top 20 Most Beta Anime Guys


The anime guys with the best developed cooking, cleaning and other feminine skills (“joshiryoku”) have been handily ranked by fans according to their likely worth as a wife or other such menial domestic servant – and with 45% of the votes cast by women themselves, they surely know their stuff.

5. Kokkuri-san (Gugure! Kokkuri-san)


6. Taiga Kagami (Kuroko no Basket)


7. Hayate Ayasaki (Hayate no Gotoku)


8. Ringo Tsukimiya (Uta no Prince-sama)


9. Raku Ichijou (Nisekoi)


10. Souta Takanashi (Working!!)


11. Nagisa Shiota (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu)

12. Mikoto Mikoshiba (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)

13. Shiro Emiya (Fate/stay night)

14. Reo Mibuchi (Kuroko no Basket)

15. Makoto Tachibana (Free!)

16. Nagisa Hazuki (Free!)

    Misleading title. If it were truly beta males, then 1,4,5,6, and arguably 7, 10, and 11 wouldn't be on the list.
    Joshiryoku =/= beta. If it was, then Rito, Haruyuki, Tsuna, Shinji, Tatsuro, Ichika, Yuuta Sagewa, etc. And no, knowing how to cook or do household chores doesn't make you a beta, it just makes you not a slob and minimizes the need to rely on others.

    This list supposed to show the most generic mc's in anime. I wonder why they include some not-so-generic mc's. They should have included the boring producer-san.

    I dont think thats what the poll was even supposed to be about. I think SanCom just threw that in themselves.

    No, people who accuse people who point out facts about betas of being betas are the real betas

    Urban dictionary:


    An unremarkable, careful man who avoids risk and confrontation. Beta males lack the physical presence, charisma and confidence of the Alpha male."

    I think that still fits most of the guys on the list, but not all.

    It's the better alternative as to citing a website in which anyone can submit entries and make shit up at random. Granted wikipedia is similar in fashion to a lesser degree, but it at least includes citations of actual substance, no matter how shit it may or may not be.

    That's why, despite he being housewife material, MonMusu's Darling isn't here (maybe).

    Darling punched the shit out of a guy IN THE FIRST EPISODE. He may not be the manliest of men, but he's certainly not a beta.

    Hideyoshi does not belong on this list. Hideyoshi belongs solely on a list for Hideyoshi separate from all else.

    Also why does Japan not understand what beta actually means. Surely the MC's from ToLove and IS should be here......

    Let's stop playing in-universe mental games and whatnot and look at it from a broad, unbiased perspective.
    Hideyoshi is a perfectly normal male teenager, with a very feminine appearance. Simply put, he's just a trap.

    Look, I like traps, but not as porn material. That's just yaoi, a genre I personally avoid.

    'beta' was what Rift decided on putting in the headline to draw you in. The ranking is based on '女子力'>>'Joshiryoku'>>Woman power.

    They do.
    It's just Sancom and their misleading titles.
    The original ranking name is "Top 20 anime males who have high women force (Joshiryoku).
    No where in that ranking does it mention beta, or beta males.

    I feel there should be a third option besides "Alpha" or "Beta" for Hideyoshi.

    Just like how he gets his own changing room at the onsen.

    With the exception of Kyon, Junpei (Nyan Koi), Toma, Lupin III, Lelouche and Koyomi (barring Shogunate or Ninja animes) I was starting to think they were all betas... ranking irrelevant.

    We talking Kaleid Shirou (Illya's brother) or Stay Night Shirou? Because Stay night Shirou can be Alpha as fuck.

    Looks like the thread ended up quibbling over what exactly a beta is. Slang use is a little different from textbook.

    Remember that it's polar to an alpha. Not just "submitting to an alpha", who might have exemplary leadership, but being /prone/ to submission. Arguably, that definition might even stretch to indifferent personalities.

    Consider TTGL's Simon, who was VERY textbook beta in earlier episodes. He was sometimes indecisive and timid, but even if he wasn't he still had a perfect beta slot waiting for him: Kamina's little brother.

    That's beta, whether it's done manly or not. Someone tell original authors or Rift whoever that "Little brother" is a far better meaning for Beta than "domestic skilled".

    The dense and asexual behavior of many harem protags (no one has mentioned Urashima Kentaro) often overlaps, but isn't actually the definition. "Cowardly" behavior is closer yet - but not 100% overlap. Hikikomori characters (Rozen Maiden, NHK) often exhibit beta behavior. One last "unmentioned" is GTO side-character Yoshikawa Noboru, his arc was fairly beta.

    No, most of the voted characters aren't alphas, but these days it's customary to be polite more than bossily "proactive".

    There is a big problem here. Ppl voted on what they already know and like and not a real rank of who makes a better beta-male like, Nagisa doesnt make any beta behaviour but since its a character draw like a girl with pointy eyes and twin thread hair and famous anime, they gave it lots of votes.
    Katanashi in other hand is very beta, cooking, cleaning, workign as waitress and love puppies would fit higher on the topic.
    So this is actually a "Most Famous Untraditional Male Characters"

    I wouldn't consider Ryuuji Takasu from Toradora! a beta. He was polite and considerate but was not a push-over (except when it involved Tiaga). Now Oyamada Kouta from Kanokon (anime), he was the king of the betas.

    Hideyodhi is feminine and a trap but he's not a beta male. He likes who he is, doesn't apologize for how he looks and he gets what he wants from the world.
    I don't know that we ever saw him back out of a fight, etc.

    Fuck all this sexist, male-degtading garbage in anime fan culture these days. Cooking and cleaning shouldnt be considered exclusive to a certain gender anymore. You're not any less of a man for having good hygiene, for caring about your stomache and making your own damn sandwiches, for preferring to not be the dominant one in the relationship, for having manners, for crying (no, not man-tears, crying... Kenshiro fucking cries like any other human being), or anything else sterotyped as manly in the last century. You're not even less manly if you don't give a fuck about spreading your seed. The growth of the human race does not solely rest on your shoulders. Let some of the women out there start getting up off their asses and asking guys out, for a change. This is the future and in this future we have 2D.

    I definitely expected Ryuuji Takasu from Toradora to be on here. Looks like I was right to.
