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)
Bakugo’s anger stems from his own self-esteem and jealousy.
And let’s not forget his overly inflated ego in the beginning of My Hero Academia.
2. Inaba Himeko (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!)
And she tends to feel bad after lashing out at others. Showing she’s self-aware and empathetic.
5. Captain Levi (Attack on Titan)
His short-temper says it all when you realize how uncomfortable he makes most people feel.
6. Gozaburo Seto (My Bride Is A Mermaid)
On one hand he’s short-tempered in general.
On the other Gozaburo is over protective and soft with those he loves.
7. Kaname Chidori (Full Metal Panic)
A classic Tsundere who’s pissed off when she’s embarrassed or shy.
Or when Sousuke does something extreme.
8. Ooi (Kantai Collection)
To the point of driving you crazy…
9. Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z)
The old Vegeta has a shorter temper than the present Vegeta in DB Super.
But still worth mentioning.
10. Erika Itsumi (Girls Und Panzer)
A lot of this stems from her background and military experience.
11. Zouroku Kashimura (Alice To Zouroku)
His short temper is similar to Erza Scarlet.
12. Skuld (Ah! My Goddess)
Skuld starts out as a little brat in the OVA of Ah My Goddess.
Her short temper stems from her jealousy between her sister: Belldandy, and her sister’s boyfriend: Keiichi.
13. Misaki Ayuzawa (Maid Sama)
14. Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)
Natsu is a simple guy. If you get out of line, that’s all it takes to tip him over the edge…
15. Ryuko Matoi (Kill La Kill)
Ryuko is hot-headed and isn’t afraid to back it up with a fight. Kind of like Vegeta.
Her short temper stems from the loss of her father.
16. Yuichiro Hyakuya (Owari No Seraph)
Eren Yeager? Yep, Yuichiro may as well be brothers with that guy
They both act carelessly sometimes and are hot-headed.
17. Chiaki Kurihara (Bodacious Space Pirates)
Smart, intelligent, but it takes a lot to get Chiaki to smile.
And she has a quick-temper (though really she’s just stubborn).
18. Lina Inverse (Slayers)
19. Shinichi Chiaki (Nodame Cantabile)
Not to mention his short-fuse with most characters.
- Yuno Gasai.
- Ichigo Kurosaki.
- Revy Rebecca.
- Edward Elric.
- Seryu Ubiquitous.
