Every fan knows at least 1 or 2 angry anime characters.

Especially if you pay attention to mainstream anime shows where it’s more common.

And let’s not forget the terms: Yandere and Tsundere (which are perfect examples).

Here are 19 short-tempered anime characters worth mentioning.

Some of which are mainstream, and others that are less popular…


1. Bakugo Katsuki (My Hero Academia)

The Most Short Tempered Anime Characters You'll Ever See

And let’s not forget his overly inflated ego in the beginning of My Hero Academia.

This changes with character development throughout Kokoro Connect.

Inaba’s short temper stems from embarrassment a lot of the time.


3. Erza Scarlett (Fairy Tail)

Erza’s calm most of the time. And handles things in a civilized way.

But when you cross the line? That’s when you better start running for your life! 😉


4. Umiko Ahagon (New Game!)

Umiko’s short temper and “serious” nature terrifies her co-workers.

And she tends to feel bad after lashing out at others. Showing she’s self-aware and empathetic.

A lot of this stems from her background and military experience.
