21+ Anime Characters With Yellow Or Golden Eyes

Written by Theo J Ellis

Anime girls with yellow or golden eyes. There’s more of them than you think, but it’s probably not the most common design.

You tend to see characters with yellow eyes when:

  • They’re powering up.
  • Transforming.

And things along those lines… You could say Dragon Ball Z started this trend of sorts.

It’s not strictly about “powering up” though, and the color doesn’t seem to mean anything in particular.

Here’s a list!

 

1. Death The Kid (Soul Eater)

Death The Kid pistols anime

Death The Kid is one of the later characters of Soul Eater, and he’s a relevant character in the overall plot of the anime.

One thing that stands out with Death The Kid aside from his yellow eyes is the fact he’s OCD to a fault. If a picture frame on a wall leans even a little, he loses his mind over it.

Same for clothes or a necktie that isn’t straight, or a hat that isn’t symmetric.

This is often part of the anime‘s comedy, but it can also be cringey as well.

 

2. Yoruichi Shihoin (Bleach)

Yoruichi Shihoin yellow cat eyes

Yoruichi Shihoin is the black beauty from the BLEACH series, and one of the few black characters from the anime.

She’s acknowledged as one of the sexiest characters, even by those in the series itself like Ichigo, Kisuke, and so on.

Being one of the original members of the stealth force and the leader, she’s proficient in combat, is called “the flash master” for her unmatched speed, and is able to defeat strong opponents without the use of a Zanpakuto (sword).

She can also turn into a cat, which goes well with her yellow eyes.

3. Julius Juukulius (Re:Zero)

Julius Juukulius purple hair

Julius Juukulius is one of the most memorable characters in Re:Zero and all for the wrong reasons, or the “right” reasons depending on your view.

In this anime that focuses on Subaru Natsuki, a guy who’s Isekai‘d into another world, Julius is first seen kissing Emilia’s hand in front of Subaru.

Subaru likes and has fallen in love with Emilia, so he takes this personally. Long story short Julius gets into a fight which Subaru asked for, and he gets the living shit beat out of him.

Julius isn’t a bad character at all, and they later start to get along, but he’s clearly a guy who does more than just talk.

4. Iroha Isshiki (Oregairu)

Iroha Isshiki cute oregairu

Iroha Isshiki is a support character from the Oregairu series, and one who is considered waifu material by many once she makes an appearance.

She’s a little cheeky, feisty, playful, and is an extroverted character who always seems to be smiling or enjoying herself.

You could say she has the most personality out of the main characters of the show.

 

5. Leone (Akame Ga Kill)

Leone akame ga kill lionel form

Leone, or “Lionel” is one of the strongest characters of the NIGHTRAID group of Akame Ga Kill. It’s an assassination group designed to kill politicians, government officials, and others who are corrupt in the government.

Leone is one of the sexiest and she’s not afraid to show off her looks, but she’s in fact more modest than she could be. And cares deeply about women who have been wronged by society.

You could say she’s a healthy feminist. She’s also rough around the edges and was known in her past life for stealing.

 

6. Shinobu Oshino (Monogatari)

Shinobu Oshino yellow eyes blonde hair anime

Shinobu Oshino is the blonde girl from Monogatari, and is a genuine vampire from this Ecchi, Supernatural anime series.

Even though she’s always in her younger form, she has an older form as well that she doesn’t use so often.

Her conversations and how close she is with Araragi, the main character, is what makes part of this anime so good. But the anime isn’t for everyone. It can get weird.

7. Zarbon (Dragon Ball Z)

Zarbon yellow eyes dbz namek

Zarbon is an old school character by today’s standards. He’s from the 1990’s as early as it gets.

The Namek Saga in DBZ is where he’s introduced properly, and it’s also where he’s seen giving Vegeta the beating of his life once he transforms.

In his standard form he’s considered handsome and he has long hair like a girl, making him one of the more slightly feminine characters in Frieza’s gang.

 

8. Kanade Tachibana (Angel Beats)

Kanade Tachibana yellow gold eyes

Kanade Tachibana is the female character and protagonist of the show. She’s a Dandere, and hardly speaks much and doesn’t start conversations if ever.

Being awkward and hard to talk to, Kanade’s introversion is obvious to anyone. She’s smart and sharper than most as a result since she spends her time thinking a lot, and analyzing things.

 

9. Hawks (My Hero Academia)

YouTube video

Hawks, even though his eyes are never shown much without his glasses, has golden eyes. And that matches his coat, glasses, and even hair.

He appeared later in the MHA series, and gets a lot of screen time during season 5 of My Hero Academia.

Being undercover and working as a double agent, Hawks is playing a dangerous, but necessary game and has his own agenda for doing so.

He’s also one of the top heroes besides Endeavor, but Hawks shy’s away from the limelight and is more of a laidback, chilled kinda guy.

 

10. Soma Yukihira (Food Wars)

Soma Yukihira eyes

Soma is easily one of the better shounen protagonists in the last 10 years (since 2010), and is one of the more unique ones for his role.

Food Wars is basically Shonen battles but with food, recipes, chefs, and the over the top fanservice that’s used to make the anime more comedic.

It’s an Ecchi masterpiece and few can pull it off so well.

Soma being a kid who grew up working in his dad’s shop becomes good at cooking, and takes his skills to a higher level after enrolling in an elite school, and rising up the ranks.

 

11. Kayano Kaede (Assassination Classroom)

Kayano Kaede blush anime

Kayano is a female character with a lot that goes into her character, her role, her progress, development, and the anime‘s plot later on.

She’s more relevant than the anime lets on in the beginning, and more memorable for that reason.

Usually Kayano is chill, jolly, smiles a lot, and seems to get along with everyone. She’s a likable character that everyone can be friends with.

This is only half the truth though, but only in a manner of speaking.

12. Wiz (Kono Subarashii)

Wiz konosuba eyes

Wiz is a powerful wizard/mage in the Konosuba series who shows up a little later. She runs her own shop and is a bit of a businesswoman.

Her strength is more fierce than her gentle, positive demeanor seems to portray. After all she was called “the ice witch” and fought against the demon king in the past.

She’s one of Konosuba’s most powerful characters, and also the kindest.

13. Nanachi (Made In Abyss)

Nanachi made in abyss girl

Nanachi is an important character who shows up later in the Made In Abyss series. The anime is about an abyss that can be seen from up top.

People who live far above the Abyss venture down to collect treasures and more, but the main characters go even further and each level is more dangerous than the last.

In this way it’s like a video game.

 

14. Ai Ohto (Wonder Egg Priority)

Ai Ohto yellow blue eyes cute

Ai Ohto is the first main character of this anime series released back in 2021. Everything comes after her.

She’s depressed because the friend she was just getting to know committed suicide. And she doesn’t know what to do or how to take it.

Being an anime about mental health and suicide as a teenager, Ai Ohto is a relatable character who has a condition causing both eye colors to be different.

 

15. Felix Argyle (Re:Zero)

Felix re zero gif trap

Felix is a TRAP character in the Re:Zero series, and the anime doesn’t mind playing this trap card when he’s first revealed.

As the name Felix applies, he’s a cat looking character and a swordsman. But not one you get to see fight compared to characters like Reinhard.

Felix teases Subaru when he first shows up in season 1 of Re:Zero.

 

16. Mami Tomoe (Madoka Magica)

Mami Tomoe yellow eyes

Mami Tomoe is the mentor and the main girl everyone looks up to in Madoka Magica… Well, the one Sayaka and Madoka look up to since Mami teaches them everything about being a magical girl.

She also has an influence on Madoka, which influences the ending of the series.

Mami is a bit more refined than other characters, and carries her self well. And she’s one of the more positive characters in the anime.

 

17. Shirley Fenette (Code Geass)

Shirley Fenette yellow green eyes

Shirley Fenette is one of the nicest characters in the Code Geass series, especially when you realize how militant, savage, and brutal the anime ends up being.

She has yellowish green eyes.

She’s the complete opposite to Lelouch in terms of what she’s willing and not willing to do, but she’s also one of the characters who helps Lelouch keep some of his humanity of sorts.

That all changes in season 2. She’s a tragic character.

 

18. Ais Wallenstein (Danmachi)

Ais Wallenstein yellow eyes

Ais Wallenstein is one of the most powerful characters in Danmachi, and is a first class adventurer from the Loki Familia.

Nicknamed “sword princess”, she’s blazingly fast and most wouldn’t dare challenging her to a fight. Her skills are put on full display during season 3 of Danmachi.

She’s more stoic than other characters in the anime, and isn’t the best at communication. But she does try and her intent and her efforts are genuine.

 

19. Liontari (Children Of The Whales)

Liontari pink hair yellow eyes

Liontari is an evil character from the Children Of The Whales anime, and is one who seems to enjoy killing. This is first shown when Liontari shows up on the mud whale, and starts killing people with an army.

Pink hair, yellow eyes, small body, and filled with aggression.

 

20. Lou (Shadows House)

Lou shadows house girl

Lou is a side character from the Shadows House anime, and is one who doesn’t talk much in the beginning of the series. She always mirrors what her leader does.

If her leader, or her “other half” says or does one thing, Lou is sure to mimic her actions down to a T.

As you see later in the anime, Lou is smart, intelligent, and one of the wittiest characters. She’s an introvert.

 

21. Dimaria Yesta (Fairy Tail)

Dimaria Yesta beautiful fairy tail villain

One of the Spriggan 12 members who served under Alvarez Empire in FAIRY Tail, Dimaria is a powerful mage in Fairy Tail.

She has the ability to manipulate and freeze time. She learned the technique from The God Of Time himself. Once she uses this technique, it’s over for anyone who doesn’t use a similar ability to counter it.

She’s also of course one of Fairy Tail‘s many hotties.
