First impressions are everything, especially if you are an anime character. You only have one shot to cement yourself as an undisputed badass, so you had better make it count! For this list, we’ll be looking at the characters who managed to pull off their respective entrances in spectacular style.
#10: Dio Brando
He shows off the time-altering power of his Stand by making poor Polnareff walk backwards without meaning to. This guy doesn’t even have to move to be imposing!
#9: Rikka Takanashi
She is so dedicated to her fantasy world that she has no issue down a building via rope, all the while accidentally flashing her flustered future live interest.
How to establish an Attack on Titan badass in one easy step; have him slaughter every Titan in the area like a boss while looking incredibly bored.
#7: Haruko Haruhara
She rode onto the scene in a scooter, bashed in the head of our hero with her guitar, and then kissed him. How’s that for establishing an atmosphere?
#6: Char Aznable
As soon as he shows up in that crimson mecha of his, he manages to turn the tide of a space battle by blasting away enemy Mobile Suits faster than we can see. Awesome.
Like the hero she is, this Servant arrives in the nick of time in a burst of radiant light. All before demanding to know who her new boss is.
#4: Naruto Uzumaki
Pain showed up and destroyed a village in one go. Not one to be outdone, Naruto arrives with a brand new wardrobe along with a group of giant, ninja frogs. Points for creativity.
#3: Team Rocket
They’re consistent, they have their own theme song, and no shortage when it comes to dramatic flare. Prepare for trouble indeed!
He defied death itself just to give his little brother some encouragement. Nothing can top this guy’s manliness!
#1: Toyotomi Hideyoshi
When you can deflect a whole volley of arrows with just a swing of your arm, you have officially earned the right to declare yourself ruler.
