Best Anime Men with Long Hair That Will Steal Your Heart

Best Anime Men with Long Hair That Will Steal Your Heart

Male characters with long hair stand out in the anime. Sometimes, they are often mistaken as females. However, some men look really handsome with long hair and get admired by many girls.

Long hair is often associated with the era and theme of the anime. If the anime takes place in a world of the previous era, then men with long hair are more commonly seen. So, let’s check out some of the male characters with long hair who stand out from the rest of the crowd.

25. Atsushi Murasakibara (Kuroko No Basuke)

Atsushi Murasakibara (Kuroko No Basuke)

We will start with this basketball player from Kuroko No Basuke, Atsushi Murasakibara. He studies at Yosen High and plays in their basketball team as number 9.

Atsushi is somewhat childish and can be sadistic sometimes. He has a sweet tooth and loves junk food so much that he will spend all his money on it, even if he has to live as a broke person for the rest of the month.

Atsushi doesn’t like people who play basketball due to their passion. He always says that he chose to go with basketball because he was just good at it. But, deep down in his heart, he loves playing basketball. He also has a caring nature; he always controls his strength and tries not to hurt other players due to his large build.

Atsushi has violet eyes and lavender hair that reaches to his shoulders. While basketball players are generally tall, he is so tall that no one else in the series is taller than him.

24. Ukyo


In terms of looks, only a few people can beat Ukyo from Amnesia. While Amnesia has many haters, It’s hard to hate Ukyo personally. He would probably be way more famous if it wasn’t for the bad anime holding him down. He is also known as Shinigami and is a spirit-like existence.

Ukyo has long, light green hair and ties some of it into a long braid. He also wears a black cap with a chess-like design. He is someone from the spirit world and can’t be any more insane than he already is.

23. Gai Tsutsugami (Guilty Crown)

Gai Tsutsugami (Guilty Crown)

Gai is a man with great ambitions to liberate Japan and overthrow the current government. He runs an organization known as the Funeral Parlor group. He is a genius strategist who can quickly devise strategies according to people’s responses. He is someone who doesn’t care about himself, but he cares about the lives of the members of his group.

Gai has fair skin, a muscular body, and long blonde hair that covers his eyes. He is a man surrounded by many mysteries and an otherworldly charm.

However, his personality changed completely after being resurrected, and he became cold and ruthless. He even hurts his former followers without even blinking an eye. Later, he even reveals his plans to use Funeral Parlor members for his own sake.

22. Byakuya Kuchiki

Byakuya Kuchiki

I was not sure when adding Byakuya to this list, as his hair appears long enough in some scenes, but when looking from the back side, they don’t appear to be that long. But I think his hairstyle looks cool, so let’s keep him.

Byakuya is the captain of the 6th division of Gotei 13. He shows a cold demeanor and carefree looks. But, inside, he deeply cares about the people around him. His home is the official meeting place for the Shinigami Women’s Association, even though He has never allowed them to do so.

21. Grell Sutcliff

Grell Sutcliff

This guy is a big red flag. He is obsessed with anything red. His love for blood and his red hair and clothes testify to this. While he looks smarter with those glasses, he isn’t very smart.

Grell has a ruthless and crazy personality. He is a death god in the Black Butler series and has hots for Sebastian. I don’t know why, but his appearance reminds me of Karen from Naruto. Grell does not particularly hate humans and even becomes a butler of a human.

20. Sesshōmaru


Sesshōmaru from InuYasha has long gray hair and a purple moon symbol on his forehead. He is a very cold person who doesn’t show any emotions on his face. But we see some expressions on his face after he meets Rin and Jaken.

Some people might like hot guys with such cold personalities, but some wouldn’t. So, What do you say?

19. Tomoe


I have put Tomoe on this list not because of his current appearance with short hair but because of scenes of his past where he has very long silver hair, just like the characters from before; this hair dude is also cold and emotionless.

Tomoe shows he doesn’t care about the shrine, but we know it’s his being a tsundere. Like why did you take care of it for two decades if you didn’t care? His old self seems to be somewhat lonely and sad. But Now that Nanami is here, there is no need to worry about it.

18. Kars


Kars is a guy who’s got everything you’d ask for inside a perfect man. Be it looks, long hair, intelligence, strength, or more. However, Kars is not a human; he is an Aztec God. Therefore, He has inhumane strength and powers.

Kars once made a mask that could practically turn you into a vampire. If that is not enough for you, then you can also become a perfect lifeform using the red stone of Aja. However, his plans didn’t go as he wished.

17. Izuru Kamukura (Danganronpa)

Izuru Kamukura (Danganronpa)

Is it a trend among cold and emotionless men to keep long hair? Izuru is another long-haired boy with long black hair and ruby-red eyes. We can only see emotions on his face when he is put into an unpredictable situation.

But, with his supernatural analytical skills, he can quickly get out of them. He likes to observe his surroundings. Furthermore, he doesn’t like unnecessary bloodshed and only kills or fights with someone when they want to hurt him.

Izuru believes that those who don’t have any talent are nothing more than bugs. So, he finds such people disgusting. He is very quiet and doesn’t like to talk about unnecessary things. He has no interest in romance whatsoever.

16. Ken Ichijouji

Ken Ichijouji

This Ken is the adult Ken we saw towards the end of Digimon Adventure 02. At the beginning of the series, Digidestined and Digimon hate him. But, towards the end of the series, he works with Digidestined to save the Digital World.

The young Ken had short hair. However, the adult Ken had long hair that almost reached his shoulders. Digidestined also once saved him from evil; after this, we see a big change in his personality. The long-hair Ken works as a private investigator now.

15. Kanzaki Hideri

Kanzaki Hideri

Due to his crossdressing and long hair, Kanzaki is often misunderstood as a girl. The reason behind this was mostly to boost her idol personality.

Kanzaki has long white hair and wears a black band, which looks like two bunny ears popping out from her hair. She just looks so cute in her light green maid outfit.

14. Rimuru Tempest

Rimuru Tempest

Rimuru is originally a slime who can transform into a human. In his human form, he has long blue hair almost reaching his waist.

His slime is also very popular with girls; Shuna and Shion often fight to carry him when he is in his original slime form. Whenever Shion is carrying him, he can’t help but feel a heavy weight above his head.

Rimuru has a small and petite body, but behind this small body lies a powerful monster who can even fight head-on with powerful demon lords and dragons. He is probably the strongest slime in anime history.

13. Soubi Agatsuma

Soubi Agatsuma

Soubi Agatsuma from Loveless has long and shiny blonde hair with blue eyes. He also wears glasses, which further increases his attractiveness. He is a fighter for Seimei, but during the anime, Ritsuka digs deeper into his relationship with Seimei.

Later, He becomes Ritsuka’s fighter and is named Loveless.

12. Astolfo


Astolfo has an androgynous appearance with his long pink hair and pretty hair clip. He is very optimistic and will keep blabbering about any matter until the matter becomes irrational.

Astolfo loves adventures and is part of the Twelve Paladins of Charlemagne. He is someone who only listens to what his heart says. He only does something if he likes it and never regrets doing anything. When he does something for his master, he is probably doing it because he likes his master, or he just finds it entertaining.

He can change between two forms: one is his spirit form, and the other one is his physical form. Whenever he is not fighting someone, he likes to be in his physical form.

11. Kenshin Himura

Kenshin Himura

Kenshin Himura is Ruroni Kenshin’s main character. It is a samurai anime which takes place in the Meiji Era. Kenshin has long red or orange hair tied into a ponytail. One day, Kenshin encounters a girl named Kamiya Karou, and they become good friends.

However, sadly, Kenshin ends up cutting off his long and beautiful hair near the end of the manga. While Kenshin is a long series with many filler episodes, it is worth trying.

10. Ren Suzugamori

Ren Suzugamori

Ren appears calm and composed during the game, but he is a very ambitious player from the inside. He is good at hiding his emotions, and there is also one other thing he is hiding from us: his hidden sadist nature.

Yes! Ren is a sadist who loves to see others in despair and suffering. He also manipulates his team into doing dirty work for him.

9. Arthur Rimbaud

Arthur Rimbaud

Arthur from Bungo Stray Dogs is a very mysterious person. He has long black hair. While he seems cold and emotionless like other characters on the list, he isn’t that bad, as we can see expressions of surprise and laughter on his face on many occasions.

8. Orochimaru


Like Jiraiya and Tsunade, Orochimaru is one of the three legendary tannins. He is from the Hidden Leaf Village. He left the village while he was young with some evil plans on his mind. He wants to become immortal and can go to any length to achieve his dream.

Orochimaru not only looks like a snake but can also summon the snakes to fight for him. He has long black hair with yellow eyes.

He attacked the Leaf Village during Chunin exams and got Sasuke on his side. Sasuke agreed to leave the village and follow him. However, in the Boruto anime, which is the sequel to Naruto, Orochimaru has a change of heart and is no longer an evil man.

7. Undertaker


Undertaker is from the black butler anime (Not that Undertaker from WWE). He looks handsome. He has a lean body with gray hair that reaches below his waist. He has green eyes and a scar across his face.

He was first introduced as an information broker, and he was mysterious. But he turned out to be a Shinigami later. Don’t let his appearance fool you because he has some weird hobbies, which include extracting organs from the dead and terrifying others.

6. Inuyasha


This anime has a very interesting storyline where a girl who falls into a well finds herself in the past during the feudal era.

Inuyaha has long white hair, and two female leads fall for him. His father is a dog demon, and his mother is an ordinary human, so Inuyasha is a half-human and half-demon. He also has dog ears, which look pretty cute.

5. Hashirama Senju

Hashirama Senju

Senju Hashirama is one of the founders and 1st Hokage of the village Hidden in the Leaves. He is one of the strongest Ninjas to ever live on Earth. He was also considered the strongest Hokage in Naruto’s history.

Hashirama had long black hair that reached his waist. Before founding the village, he was the leader of the Senju clan. He then founded the village with Uchiha Madara, the leader of the Uchiha clan. Later, many other clans joined their village. He is also the older brother of the 2nd Hokage Tobirama and Grandfather of the 5th Hokage Tsunade.

He fought against Madara in the Fourth Great Ninja War after being reanimated. He had also fought him on many occasions while both were alive.

4. Hyakkimaru


Hyakimaru’s story is very tragic. He was an unlucky child who became a sacrifice for the land’s prosperity even before he was born into this world. He was born without any skin, organs, or limbs. He would not have survived if that maid hadn’t sent him away in the river.

But he does have prosthetic limbs and eyes, which surprisingly works. He has long black hair that deserves a spot on our list.

Even with his prosthetic limbs, he still fights against 72 demons. He fights against them to get his stolen body parts back. He finds his way by sensing the spirits of others.

3. Neji Hyuga

Neji Hyuga

Neji is from the Hidden Leaf Village. He belongs to the Hyuga clan and has a special eye ability called Byakugan. He belongs to the branch family of the clan. He is very good at using Byakugan and mastered it at a young age.

He has long brown hair, and his eyes look like he lacks emotion. He initially seemed like a bad guy when he hurt Hinata during Chunin exams. But he changes after he fights Naruto. No one expected Naruto to win against him, but Naruto defeated Neji.

He is Hinata’s cousin. He fought bravely in the 4th Great Ninja War and died while protecting Naruto and Hinata.

2. Jiraiya


Jiraiya is one of the three legendary Sannin from the Konoha village. He is a Ninja and a popular author of the book ‘Make-Out-tactics,’ written for a mature audience only. We don’t know much about his book, but it was so famous that Kakashi was seen reading it many times. He used to travel a lot and write his books.

Jiraiya has long white hair that looks spiky. He trained Naruto so that he could control his 9-tail fox powers. Therefore, Naruto looks up to him. Jiraiya was also the teacher of 4th Hokage Minato, Naruto’s father. He is one of the strongest characters in the anime. He also trained Pain while he was an orphan and later became the leader of Akatsuki.

1. Madara Uchiha

Madara Uchiha

Uchiha Madara is one of the most infamous characters in anime history. He was the main enemy of the whole Ninja world before Kaguya Otsutsuki appeared.

His regeneration abilities made him even more powerful than before he died. He single-handedly defeated all 5 Kages as if it were children’s play. His main goal was “Infinite Tsukuyomi” to put the whole world under a Genjutsu where they could live their dreams.

He has long and spiky black hair. In addition to Sharingan and Makgekyou Sharingan, he also acquired Rinnegan, which is considered the strongest of them all.

Even if he is a villain, he is loved by fans worldwide. His fight against Might Guy is one of my favorite fights throughout the anime. Because while the whole Shinobi world was struggling against Madara, Guy was giving him a tough time. Taijutsu was his only weakness, and ninjutsu didn’t affect him.
