30+ Anime Maid Characters Who Are Simply The Best (Recommended)

Written by Anga

Maid outfits have been a trend ever since anime blew up from the 1990s to the 2000s.

I think it’s reasonable to say that anime culture appreciates this surprisingly endearing profession, given that Japan (and anime) even has entire cafés where maids are the central theme.

These individuals are either traditional maids or staff members of a theme cafe where cosplay is necessary to win over customers. It’s no longer a shocking event there.

Additionally, maids receive a lot of love in the anime community. So here is my list of the best Maid Anime Characters.

 

1.) Misaki Ayuzawa (Maid Sama!)

Misaki Ayuzawa | Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama! Wiki | Fandom

Misaki had to attend a low-cost school because her family was in debt. She works hard to tame the wild boys and defend the girls, finally becoming the first female president through strict academics, all-out strength training, and making a good impression on the teachers.

She is harsh with rowdy boys, causing them to despise her. As a result of how ruthlessly she dominates the lads in Seika high school, she is dubbed the “Demon Prez.”

Misaki covertly worked as a maid at Maid Latte on the side. I admire the complexion of the fearsome dominant type to a sweet submissive as a waitress. Yes, to the girl boss.

2.) Lilia Greyrat (Mushoku Tensei)

Lilia Greyrat - Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu - Zerochan Anime Image Board

She’s not just a fantastic maid but also well-equipped for battle. So she can splatter some opponent’s guts on the wall and then clean it up without leaving stains.

Her devotion to the house wavers at one point… if you’ve been following along, you’ll understand what I mean. But she quickly leapt back up and made amends.

 

3.) Rem (Re:Zero)

Rem has a habit of speaking politely on the surface and acting rashly at times. As a result of a previous event, she feels both respect for the place of worship and guilt for her sister.

She usually wears a maid uniform, and while her chest is slightly larger than her sister’s, she conceals it by discretely changing the measures.

She can fight Demon Beasts with her bare fists and carries Subaru without exertion.

4.) Ram (Re:Zero)

530+ Ram (Re:ZERO) HD Wallpapers and Backgrounds

Everyone loves Rem and ignores Ram, but Ram is equally significant.

Sure, she could be more skilled at dealing with chores or swarms of enemies. But Ram has one attribute distinguishing her as a far superior maid: loyalty.

Rem would immediately abandon Roswaal to save Subaru, whereas Ram would remain loyal to him for the rest of her life.

Furthermore, I may be old-fashioned, but I enjoy some tsundere action.

5.) Entoma Vasilissa Zeta (Overlord)

Entoma Vasilissa Zeta's Character explained | analysing Overlord - YouTube

She appears to be the most laid-back, cute little maid ever, even though she is a battle maid.

However (spoiler alert), she perfectly suits the job, as she is a scary bug monster. And what about that adorable face we all know and love? Nothing more than a rigid insect shell.

We’ve seen devil maids and the like. But I don’t recall ever seeing a trustworthy monster maid who can make you tea while also giving your guests nightmares.

 

6.) Mey-Rin (Black Butler)

Mey-Rin | Kuroshitsuji Wiki | Fandom

Mey-Rin is the Phantomhive household maid.

She wears enormous, thick, round glasses, a present from her master, to see up close; her vision is otherwise remarkable since her previous boss claims she can see and shoot targets from a thousand miles away.

Her arms are covered in scars from her time as a young sharpshooter. Mey-Rin wears a Nina Hopkins-designed maid’s uniform.

Like the other Phantomhive employees, she is extremely loyal to Ciel Phantomhive and has a crush on Sebastian Michaelis.

 

7.) Roberta (Black Lagoon)

roberta (black lagoon) drawn by yasuo_(chisyu0204) | Danbooru

This may appear redundant, considering Roberta is also a battle maid… but with a twist. Back in the day, she was a full-fledged assassin. Because of how ruthless and efficient she was, she earned the moniker “the bloodhound.”

As a result, her cleaning and cooking abilities were far from stellar when she became a maid. However, she became efficient enough with the practice that she was no longer suspicious.

 

8.) Virgo (Fairy Tail)

Virgo - Fairy Tail | Anime fairy tail, Personajes de cuentos de hadas, Fairytail

Virgo, sometimes known as “The Maiden,” is a Celestial Spirit and one of the 12 Golden Zodiac Keys. Lucy Heartfilia presently owns her key, which was previously owned by Everlue.

She was extraordinarily tall and overweight with Everlue, with a brutish visage and two ponytails; Natsu referred to her as “Gorilla Maid.” She has a more usual appearance of beauty with a tiny body now that she is in Lucy’s care. This is ironic, given that she is the Maiden.

She moves stiffly and chastely and is extremely faithful and submissive to her owner, so much so that she changes her look for them. She adores referring to Lucy as a “Princess.”

 

9.) Tohru (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid)

ArtStation - Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid "Tohru"

Tohru is a female dragon who can transform into a human girl. . She is Damocles’ daughter.

Tohru has blonde hair with reddish-orange tips and red-orange eyes in her human form, as well as huge thighs and firm, bouncing breasts, claiming to be a D cup.

After flying to Kobayashi’s place for the first time, she miraculously turns her scales into a maid suit, replicating the uniform from a maid cosplay cafe.

As a Chaos Dragon, Tohru was raised to despise humans and was envisioned as a solid and terrifying force of evil bent on destruction. But everything changed when she met Kobayashi.

 

10.) Maid-chan (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou)

Maid | Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo Wiki | Fandom

This one may appear strange because Maid-chan is simply an AI program. But she would be highly beneficial.

No, it’s not only because her given name is Maid-chan. Her ability to respond to messages, emails, postings and everything else within seconds of receipt sets her apart from the crowd.

Furthermore, she has advanced to the point where it is nearly hard to tell she is not a genuine person.

 

11.) Ai Hayasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War)

Hayasaka: "Did you hear that, the president is going on a date with me~" - Bilibili

Ai Hayasaka is one of the three main characters in the Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai series. She is a third-year student at Shuchi’in Academy and a former Shinomiya Group employee who worked as Kaguya Shinomiya’s maid.

When caring for the Shinomiya home, she dresses in a maid costume. Her modified high school uniform matches kogal fashion and a sweater is wrapped around her waist as a student at Shuchi’in Academy.

As a maid, she is calm and efficient, and while she occasionally irritates her mistress with her unreasonable requests, she still adores her.

 

12.) Nagomi Wahira (Akiba Maid War)

Nagomi Chan is a girl who shouldn’t be in the business, but she is. In Tokyo, there are maids who serve customers in maid cafes, but the darker side is they go to war with each other from time to time.

Blood spills, shootouts happen, violence, and so on. Turf wars, basically. And Nagomi ends up in the business because she loved the idea of maids and being a maid, only to find out there’s more to it than many are aware of.

This naive and also a kind perspective that she embodies helps her stand out as a maid and a character and makes her different to everyone else.

13.) Faris Nyannyan (Steins Gate)

All this talk over best girl, where my Faris Nyannyan lovers at? : r/steinsgate

Faris NyanNyan, real name Rumiho Akiha, is the daughter of Yukitaka Akiha and Chikane Akiha.

She’s a part-time worker and owner of the maid cafe MayQueen NyanNyan, where Mayuri Shiina is the most famous waitress and a second-year student at Kanaria Private Academy.

Faris, the founder of a moe cafe and a server, always adds the Japanese term “nya” to her speech to enhance her “moe-ness.”

She has the “Cheshire Break,” which allows her to see into people’s hearts simply by gazing at them in the eyes.

 

14.) Yukimura Kusunoki (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai)

Yukimura Kusunoki | Ultima Wiki | Fandom

To say Yukimura is devoted is an understatement. Because she’s a ride-or-die maid.

She is also the first recorded double-trap character, as everyone initially thought she was female, but Yukimura claimed to be male, but it was later determined that she is, in fact, female (at least biologically).

 

15.) Hildagarde (Beelzebub)

She frequently understands more about the current situation than any other protagonist and is skilled at manipulating others to do what she believes is best.

16.) Narberal Gamma (Overlord)

Narberal Gamma | Re:Hero Wiki | Fandom

On the other hand, Nabel is a bit more well-rounded than the previous pick of a battle maid.

She’s the most outspoken of the combat maids, giving her the appearance of a pseudo-leader, and her loyalty to her lord rivals that of the Floor Guardians.

The major twist in her character is her open loathing of humans… She despises them to the core and will express her thoughts whenever given a chance.

 

17.) Ryuu Lion (DanMachi)

It’s the sound of gender standards collapsing… Chihiro is, indeed, a man. He’s also not a butler. Chihiro moves in with his wealthy uncle after his parents die.

Chihiro soon starts working as a maid at his uncle’s estate, uniform, and everything, because he doesn’t want to be a leech. And it’s remarkable how hardworking this man is, especially given his age.

Nagi Sanzenin’s personal maid (and former home tutor) of the Sanzenin household is Maria. She acts as a substitute older sister/mother and is the only person who genuinely understands Hayate Ayasaki and Nagi’s connection.

Maria is the character with the most common sense, except that her sense of monetary value is as terrible as Nagi Sanzenin’s. She appears to be in command of everything in Nagi’s manor, as everyone from the head butler to the SP obeys or fears her.

She is exceptionally brilliant, slightly sneaky, adept at regular housework, and enjoys many games, yet she is deathly scared of cockroaches due to Katsaridaphobia.
