27+ Anime Characters With Wings!

Updated October 29, 2022 by Ernie

Well! To be honest, characters with wings fascinate me. I mean, its simply incredible. This may sound childish, but Ive always wanted to fly without the use of technology. Realistically, this is not possible. But, I can still dream, right?

When it comes to anime, youll see characters with unusual designs and abilities. Slimes, goblins, and dragons are among the characters you usually encounter. Characters with wings, on the other hand, are not frequently seen. Hawks from My Hero Academia, Ulquiorra Cifer from Bleach, and many more are examples of winged characters.

In this list, well be looking at some of the unusual characters with wings. I dont have an exact number, but there are a LOT of such characters. People just dont focus much. Without any further ado, lets start the list.

Another character from Digimon. ShadowSeraphimon is quite similar to Seraphimon except for the fact that it is evil. The ten golden wings are now purple, and the armor also appears ominous.

It is believed that if a Seraphimon remains in this condition for too long, itll become a Daemon. ShadowSeraphimon can also be made artificially by collecting data from other digimon like Mercurymon and the real Seraphimon.

Its behavior is the exact opposite of that of Seraphimon. Seraphimons are the epitome of God, however, Shadow Seraphimons are the epitome of pure evil.

There are a LOT of characters from Digimon on this list. Angemon is basically Patamons Champion level Digivolution. Just like other Angemons, it has 6 whitewings, and wears a helmet so that we cannot see its eyes. Idk why they hide their eyes? 

We first witness Angemon in the battle against Devimon. The 6 Dididestined were already defeated by Devimon and his partner. However, when he tried to attack TK, Patamon digivolve into Angemon and stopped his attack. It was a HYPE moment!!! There were a lot of emotions going through my head at that time. 

In case you havent watched Digimon, you should defo give it a shot. It might seem a bit childish, but believe me, you wont regret your decision.
