Top 10 Anime Demon Characters

This is an article I wrote about my TEN Favorite Demon (Yokai) Characters, since there are so little demon manga! Everything about Yokai is so fascinating, from their feral instincts to their demon powers.

Nura Rikuo

The third leader of the Nura Clan and coughevilcough half of human, clumsy Nura Rikuo. Well, technically, they are the same person, but the two are so like day and night it's like two different people instead. Night Rikuo is confident, cocky, dangerous and merciless when someone else's beliefs challenges his. Of course, that doesn't means human Rikuo is useless. He's weak, but very clever and manipulative.

Kyuubi/Uzumaki Naruto

While Uzumaki Naruto is not a demon, the beast inside his body is. And one of the strongest one to boot. And said beast has a name, and no, it's Kyuubi, but Kurama. And of course, Naruto, being the usual crazy bastard he is, managed to convince the strongest Bijuu in the series to work together with him.

And now with the Kyuubi's willing help, the pair made a ferocious and terrifying opponent to anyone.




A fox youkai that serves as a familiar of the former land god. In the past, he served an evil master, and he himself was a cruel and wild youkai that occasionally has his kind side. Currently, he's just a cynical, distrustful... well, bastard. Although on some occasions, he can be as charming as the fox he is.

Mephisto Pheles

The quirky and eccentric principal of True Cross Academy. Despite being a demon - well, it was implied, but who are we kidding? - he's also an Exorcist with the Honorary Knight class.

Somehow, whenever shit hit the fan, he's always present and heavily suspected to be the one pulling strings from behind the scenes.

If you want more evidences of him being a demon? Well, what kind of human could still be alive during the Renaissance era?

Sebastian Michaelis

Sebastian is a demon in contract with Ciel Phantomhive, and currently acts as the boy's butler. Most of the time, he's friendly, polite and courteous, but couldn't help but reveal his bloodthirsty, demonic nature when he starts killing for his master.

Although a demon, Sebastian is shown caring for his master and the house's servants on rare occasions. He's also weak against cats, and is adorably fascinated with them. Of course, this means that he utterly despises dogs.

Beelzebub IV

Don't be deceived by his cutesy and adorable appearance! This baby here is the youngest son of the Great Demon Lord.

Despite being a demon lord, he still a baby after all. He's easily impressed and a crybaby. Of course, he is a demon, and when he cries, he fries everything around him and has a massive amount of fighting potential. His urine - apparently, a special and blessed urine that comes only once a year - is enough to even flood an entire town.


A former prince of the Demon World who later finds out that he's a half-angel. Kucabara is unlike any demon you'll ever meet. He's absurdly kind, friendly and became a defense lawyer to help out unfortunate souls that ended up in Event Horizon, a place that's neither Heaven nor Hell, people who have died of unknown reasons. Before he was stripped of his power and banished to Event Horizon, he was the strongest in the Demon World.

He later mixed up with a nun, Idamaria, whose main mission in life is to destroy demons, and of course, being Kucabara, managed to fall in love with her along the way!


A very familiar figure and one of the earliest and most popular demon. Inuyasha, instead of being a complete demon, was borne from a human mother and is therefore a half. Because of that, he turns human once every month and is very vulnerable during that period.

He also has his youkai form, although he couldn't control it at all. He comes nothing but a berserker, and his strength and power increases dramatically. While a youkai, he has nothing but blood lust in his mind and will continue destroying until he is stopped.

Kang Shi-chan

A fashion model and an outrageous flirt that would even have sex with his teacher. He nearly died after getting caught in between a battle between two demons. He was saved by the demon, Inferno, who merged with his body and the only reason he's alive.

Now he is caught in a mysterious, supernatural world with every demon coming after him because of his connection with Inferno. Still, even when that happens, his flirtatious and lascivious personality doesn't change!

Miketsukami Soushi

Despite being half-human and half-youkai, he is the most powerful one in SS. He is usually calm, gentle and slavishly loyal and in love with his partner. And since his partner is just a fifteen-year-old girl, he's pretty much a lolicon. :D

Before meeting his partner, he was a deceitful and cold person, until he meets Ririchiyo, and he's currently obsessed and would do anything for her.

He is the nine-tailed fox's reincarnate and his family has him on house arrest nearly the entirety of his childhood to control his life.

        I think it's really interesting that Tomoe and Sebastian are tied for "My Favorite Demon" and they have the same english voice actor
