Cutest Anime and Video Game Characters: Top Five!

Everyone has a favorite anime or video game series with characters personified by sunshine and sweetness. These are the characters you just want to hug, the ones you’d love to spend a day hanging out with. Whether they’re human or some kind of cuddly animal, these are some of the cutest anime and video game characters fans love to love!

Hatsune Miku

Hatsune Miku, the poster child of Vocaloids everywhere, defines anime as cuteness. With her endless smile and iconic blue hair, Miku has been singing and dancing her way into the hearts of fans worldwide. Miku’s backstory states that she was created in a future where music was lost. With her name translating to “New sound of the future”, Miku represents hope and positivity through bumpin’ beats and music.

For anyone who’s been to an anime convention in the past 14 years, it’s an absolute bet to see at least one person cosplaying her classic outfit! The best thing about Miku is that she has a song or a look for everyone. Miku can sing. She can dance. And her hair is cool. Miku’s got it all!

The Moogles (Final Fantasy series)

When people think of Final Fantasy, a specific yellow bird comes to mind (Squark!), but that’s not fair for the series’ other resident super cuties, the Moogles. Small white bears with little wings and little red dingy-bobs on their heads, Moogles are instantly recognizable throughout the Final Fantasy universe.

The Moogles have appeared in countless Final Fantasy titles, often acting as NPC’s or guides to help the players. But they’ve also appeared as playable characters in others, as well as supporting cast (Dungeon Hero X from Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon needs his own game!)

But don’t take their cuteness for weakness, though; Moogles are fierce fighters with even fiercer dispositions. They can be some of your closest allies or the most formidable foes to face. That still doesn’t make them any less cute, though! Giving them a haircut and bath in Crystal Chronicles is probably their highlight, to be honest.

Nagisa Hazuki (Free!)

In an anime based on swimming, nearly every character will inevitably be adorable–and Nagisa Hazuki is the cheerful main character! He doesn’t look like your average anime main character. The third-year high schooler participates as the breast-stroke swimmer for the Iwatobi High School Swim Club, making him an invaluable team member.

Instead of having a serious, gloomy personality, he has a friendly smile and warm, kind eyes. And rather than sleek, styled hair, his bright red hair is a messy mop on top of his head. If a significant time means hanging out by the pool or relaxing in the sun, Nagisa is the perfect friend for that!

Mitsukuni “Honey” Haninozuka (Ouran High School Host Club)

Oh, Ouran High School Host Club. How many conventions have you dominated over the years, with legions of fans all dressed in matching blue uniforms? Of the many characters that populate the anime, Mitsukuni “Honey” Haninozuka is arguably one of the cutest.

Mitsukuni Haninozuka aka Honey-senpai from Ouran High School Host Club. He has short blonde hair, brown eyes and a pink stuffed bunny.

Though he’s the smallest character in the show, Honey-senpai, is instantly recognizable by the stuffed rabbit toy he carries around. He loves cake and is a total sweetheart, but he is also one of Japan’s strongest martial artists! While the other characters have their charms and draws, Mitsukuni is like the younger brother everyone wishes they had.

Elphelt Valentine (Guilty Gear series)

The Guilty Gear fighting game series is jam-packed with the wildest assortment of characters in any fighting game series ever. Mutants, vampires, dim-sum shop owners, time-traveling rock stars, and ninjas who want to become president are all part of Guilty Gear’s giant cast. But Elphelt Valentine is one of the series’ most popular characters! And that’s saying something when the competition involves the likes of Dizzy, A.B.A., and Jam.

An artificial being was created initially to hurt humanity, but she befriends them instead! After some soul searching, she eventually becomes a heavy metal rock star! Even though she still wants to find the perfect husband, she also wants to spread love through music! If Elphelt has a flaw, it might be that she can be too optimistic, even in the face of danger. With her distinctive outfit, tireless optimism, and heavy metal attitude, Elphelt makes for a unique entry in the Guilty Gear games.

What makes them the cutest anime and video game characters?

These characters are the cuties because they have fun personalities and charming designs! But they also have compelling backstories and talents to keep you interested! Do you think these characters are the cutest from their respective series? Who’s your favorite (it’s okay if it’s Chocobo, we won’t tell Mog.) Did we forget anyone?
