Best Anime with Wizard: A List for Wized Anime Lovers

Best Anime with Wizard A List for Wized Anime Lovers

What is a wizard in the first place, or do you know what a wizard can do? Well, this is not part of today’s discussion, but you have to find out what wizards are. In the anime world, we have some characters who are wizards and manage to capture the hearts of the audiences. This is through their amazing talent to perform magic.

Now, this is your point of view on whether they are good or bad, but all I can tell you is that these wizards are among the outstanding characters in the anime world. I won’t lie, but all are good people; some are evil, and some are purely good and naive. Those who are evil use black magic to ruin things from good to bad.

Despite some using black magic, others use their magic for the greater good. The greater good includes the attacking of monsters to save humanity.

Of course, the series’ setting is all dope, enchanting worlds. Some have a dark setting, while, on the other hand, some have a setting full of fantasy. Now, worry not; I have brought a list with different settings, and you get one that will be your favorite.

20. Margery Daw “Burning Eyed Shana” franchise (2005-12)

Margery Daw Burning Eyed Shana franchise (2005 12)

She is one of those wizards born normal and later developed magical abilities. These magical abilities have made her a significant figure in her community. The way she stores and keeps stuff in a bookmark will leave you short of words.

This is also a very effective way of spicing up her abilities. Her power also helps her evoke spirits that can help her attack and eliminate her enemies. She is also capable of flying after her robe transforms into a werewolf. Grab your copy and enjoy the fantastic series.

19. Yukihira Furano – Nanana’s Buried Treasure

Yukihira Furano Nanana Buried Treasure

This one must have captured every fan’s heart with her knowledge and all her works through magic. You can find this character in the series Nanana’s Buried Treasure. She is so knowledgeable and amongst the unique and special mages in the anime world. Yukihira belongs to the group known as the Great 7.

Her world is a world of enchantment, as she is capable of making enchanted objects. Yukihira is not proud of her abilities because she doesn’t appear like a mage. She is a kind-hearted person, and her humor makes her stand out. The wisdom and knowledge that this girl possesses is something that I can’t explain. Grab your copy today and enjoy Yukihira’s enchanted world.

18. Tatsuya Shiba – The Irregular at Magic High School

Tatsuya Shiba The Irregular at Magic High School

Tatsuya Shiba takes the trophy when we talk about the smart anime wizards. We are all familiar with wizards who use spells and magic already there, but this one is one of a kind. His mind and some analytical skills are enough for him to come up with some magic sequences. Most of the fans thought this guy was so cold and didn’t care, but that is not the real Shiba.

He is such a caring character and can be so emotional at times. If you want to see his caring and emotional side, just see how he cares for his sister. When it comes to this guy, that symbolizes that being a great mage doesn’t have anything to do with age. Despite being a high school student, his magic is not to be underestimated.

17. Merlin “The Seven Dead” y Sins” (2014-)

Merlin The Seven Deadly Sins (2014)

I ass” me that we are all familiar with the Seven Deadly Sins group. All of the seven members have their special abilities concerning the sin that they represent. Guess which sin Merlin represents. She represents the sin of gluttony and is a famous magician all over Britannia. She just doesn’t have an ability; she has many powers and abilities, making her a great wizard.

The most fascinating part about this wizard is that she can teleport herself without any limits. The only limited power on her is her healing abilities, but she still has the power to heal. Her magic also includes demonic stuff because she studied about it.

16. Elias Ainsworth – The Ancient Magus’ Bride

Elias Ainsworth The Ancient Magus Bride

Are you looking for an old mage who has lived for over a hundred years and beyond? Well, I have Elias Ainsworth from the series called The Ancient Magus’ Bride. He has lived for centuries and is a very well-known character in the anime world. Now, his role is mentoring and guiding the series’ leading character, Chise Hatori.

He now gives the knowledge that he has been attaining all this to a young man. Is there any doubt that Elias Ainsworth also wants Chise Hatori to become a magician? I don’t think that this should even be a question; it’s something that is pretty damn obvious.

Elias also possesses some abilities like teleporting and transformation. Despite all the good about him and all the years he has lived, he still finds it hard to understand the emotions of human beings. With this behaviour, do you think he can mentor Chise Hatori throughout? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

15. Haku – Spirited Away

Haku Spirited Away

He is among the best among those rarest wizards who can transform into more than one object. He is a river spirit that is lost and sometimes takes the form of a young teenage boy and of a gigantic dragon, white. His curiosity revolves around knowing more about magic. Note that he is also very caring; when he is a human being, he is the greatest wizard of all time.

Yubaba is also known for magic; for Haku to get something from her, he became one of her servants. How can I forget that Haku can also fly while he is in his dragon form? This boy is trying so hard to help Chihiro break a certain curse so they can go back into the human world. Do you think the two would successfully return to the human world?

14. Slayn “Record of Lodoss War” franchise (1990-98)

Slayn Record of Lodoss War franchise (1990 98)

When we talk about classical fantasy, The Lodoss War series is the home of it all. What else would you want that you can’t find in this series? Those who are fond of adventures are covered. A group of adventurers in this series are on a quest, and every step of the quest has a magical blast. I bet you would not want to miss this.

The more interesting part is that although Slayn is a powerful wizard, he is humble. This guy made the whole series interesting with the way he used his abilities for the greater good and did not intend to do something bad, making this series worthy of a try.

13. Clow Reed – Cardcaptor Sakura

Clow Reed Cardcaptor Sakura

We have many wizards in this series; Cardcaptor Sakura and Clow Reed are some of the most powerful. There is no doubt that his spells and magic made him famous and popular. He could also create his magic and spells, which were not readily made.

This also adds value to his reputation as a great wizard of all time. Are you aware that he was the one who also invented the magical clow cards and their guardians? I know some of you are now surprised, but yes, he was the one who created them. Imagine how the other student wanted to retrieve some cards, and the opposite happened. Are you aware of what happened? If you are aware of this, please comment below.

12. Vanessa Enoteca – Black Clover

Vanessa Enoteca Black Clover

Manipulation is negative but can also be used for a great good; what do you think? Vanessa Enoteca’s manipulating magic is what created fame for her. It’s not only manipulating magic that she possesses but also having the ability to decide the future and fate of others.

Imagine such a great ability, but will she use it positively or negatively? The reason for Vanessa doing so is because she wanted to protect her friends, those that she called hers. Her past is not good, and it’s what moulded her into the person she is now.

She was not raised somewhere cool and fancy but was in the witch’s forest. After hearing about how she was raised, I don’t think there is any reason for anyone to doubt her powers. She is a strong member of the Black Bulls squad and a loyal friend to her friends.

11. Lina Inverse – Slayers

Lina Inverse Slayers

We can call this a dark wizard because all she specialized in was chaos and black magic. She has undefeated powers, and her temper is on another level. You won’t dare mess with such a sorceress. I don’t know how to tell this, but you must watch this series and see how she makes her signature move. Her powers are strong to the extent that, despite her age, everyone respects her.

What else would you expect from someone with so much knowledge and a sharp, strategic mind? If you watch closely, you see a reckless character in her, which spices up everything in this series. I don’t know how, when and where you will watch this series, but just try it.

10. Kazuma Kannagi – Stigma Of The Wind

Kazuma Kannagi Stigma Of The Wind

You can’t claim to be a fan of anime, and you have no idea about Ka ums Kannagi. He wasn’t born a wizard but used powers borrowed from the spirit wind. To have this spirit’s abilities, he had to enter into a contract with it first.

He became an unbeatable wizard and undefeated with his borrowed magic. Initially, he could not use her fire magic despite being in a family where everyone had to use magic. That was why he was chased away; he could not use his magic, resulting in his being defeated by his young cousin. He then went and learnt, got into a contract with the wind spirit, and gained some powers he mastered very well.

The reason why I respect this guy is because, with all the power that he attained, he was never proud. He was such a caring and loving person. Kazuma never intended to use his powers negatively but positively, protecting the inferior from their enemies and all other sorts of evil.

Do you think he will ever think of taking revenge on his family for kicking him out of the household? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

9. Judar – Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic

Judar Magi The Labyrinth Of Magic

To those fond of evil wizards, this could be your best because that’s what he specializes in. He has never treated anyone nicely. All he knows is how to treat people badly in an arrogant manner. Judar has always lived a very luxurious and good quality life, which made him the way he is.

He is not hesitant to use his black magic negatively. Whether it is causing danger or chaos, he doesn’t think twice before doing it. However, with all these attributes, he is among the best wizards in the anime world.

8. Howl – Howl’s Moving Castle

Howl Howl Moving Castle

Howl Jenkins Pentagon is one of the wizards that have guys. He is not scared to stand up against anything that comes his way, including monsters and deadly bombs.

Wait a minute, are you aware of Howl and Sophie’s relationship? That silence says something; maybe you don’t remember, but the two were in love with each other to break their curses. When discussing wizard skills, Howl Jenkins Pendragon is beyond skilled; he is a professional image.

7. Gildarts – Fairy Tail

Gildarts Fairy Tail

I believe that everyone here is aware of the Fairy Tail guild. If you are unfamiliar with it, it is a group of mages with many different abilities, and Gildarts is among them. Gildarts has some special magic abilities that make him capable of performing any type of magic you might think of. But Crush was his favourite because it is well known.

With this magic, he would easily get anything into very small pieces without hassle. Despite this series being known for its powerful witches, it is centred on Lucy and Natsu, who had just joined the guild.

6. Edward Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist

Edward Elric Fullmetal Alchemist

This is one of the wizard characters who is full of determination. He wants to make up for the blunder that he made in the past and to succeed; he has to be powerful. Some might not see him as a wizard because he is an alchemist. Reshaping matter in the way he wishes and transmutation is where he is a genius. Edward will lead us to adventures in his quest to rectify his mistake.

5. Fluder Paradyne -Overlord

Fluder Paradyne Overlord

Of course, it’s pretty obvious that he is the most powerful wizard in the series, Overlord, because he is old. He has lived for a very long time and has become familiar with many types of magic, unlike some of the mages in this series. His knowledge is too vast, and he never rests; he keeps seeking more concerning magic and its workings.

I enjoy the fact that despite being old, the most evil wizards in this series can not stand a chance to win over Fluder. Yeah, of course, he is a hard one to crack. Dark fantasy is the essence of this series, so grab your copy today and enjoy.

4. Yuno – Black Clover

Yuno Black Clover

You can never tell all of Yuno’s powerful spells; there are so many. He got his powers and abilities from the wind spirit, which made him formidable. Yuno makes use of his four-leaf clover grimoire, which is something you would not dare get close to lol.

This young man is so dedicated to what he does; his talent makes it easier for him. He is after he goes, and nothing on his way will stop him from getting where he wants to be. Do you think Asta will stop him, or is he unstoppable for good?

3. Sung Jin-Woo – Solo Leveling

Sung Jin Woo Solo Leveling

Sung Jinwoo is only fighting for his own life; he only wants to remain alive as the battle occurs. Some humans with magical powers and abilities are fighting monsters to save humanity. The only hope for the human race is these people; there is no other way out.

The System came as a saviour to this young boy after he almost lost his life after a certain dungeon incident. The moment System chose him as one of its players, it gave him some powers, making him powerful and formidable. This ability is not a usual one. It is rare to find someone who possesses such abilities.

2. Asta – Black Clover

Asta Black Clover

Are you familiar with Yuno’s rivalry from the series Black Clover? Asta, the leading character in the same series, was one of Yuno’s rivals. This one is different from the rest on this list because he did not use magic but had something special. We can refer to this special ability as Anti-Magic energy, and with this, he defeated witches and wizards.

He also uses swords, but his speed is something that I can’t explain today. The centre of attraction of this series is the competition between the two young men, Yuno and Asta. Who do you think is going to win the competition? Let me know in the comment section below.

1. Zeref Dragneel – Fairy Tail

Zeref Dragneel Fairy Tail

We know that wizards in the Fairy Tail guild were all different; some were good and nice, and some were the opposite. Zeref Dragneel is one of the most evil wizards in the Fairy Tail guild. He possesses a lot of dark magic, and he is not scared of using his magic in any way that he might think of. Of course, he is capable of raising the dead, but on the other hand, if he values someone’s life so much, that person will die.

This is because his powers and abilities are backed by a curse that causes all this. He is also among the complicated characters in the anime world, and at some point, you might think you know him, but you know nothing. This is why I urge you to watch this series and enjoy it. Trust me, you won’t regret trying out this one.
