Jonah has a maturity beyond his years, having a tendency to largely keep his thoughts to himself and not openly complain. He has a fear of needles, which caused him to delay getting a bullet that had been lodged in his rear end for some time surgically removed until Koko had him to do so to avoid continually setting off metal detectors in airports.

He regained his consciousness and some of his memories and is now able to talk and analyze his situation. However, he was still unable to disobey the mask’s orders to make humans commit suicide or to kill them if they do not show signs of despair. After meeting Kuon, he attempted to scare her by pointing his rifle at her, but the masked ordered him not to, to which he responded to with shock.
The mask mentioned her status and gave him no further orders, meaning he was able to talk and finally express his concerns. Later on, he was able to talk with Yuri before going into hibernation mode, a setting the mask sets “defect” angels into. Fortunately, he was saved thanks to Kuon and Nise’s help, and he was no longer forced to obey the commands of the mask. However, he was suggested to keep the mask on because the suicide command still remains.
So, as a human who is not under the influence of the mask, he seems to be a very intelligent man. He considers his situations carefully and makes his decisions based on what he determines to be best. Once he grows close to someone, he starts to show his concern for them, but overall, he is determined to look cool in whatever he does.

7. Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood)
Death the Kid is first introduced while in the process of conducting a mission with his twin pistols (Liz and Patty Thompson). After failing the mission to capture Lupin, he speaks to his father, Shinigami, and decides to go after the witch Samantha. She is controlling mummies at the pyramid of Anubis. Upon arriving, Kid begins to worry about the symmetry of a picture hanging in his room back home. Kid leaves his weapons alone in the pyramid. The sisters manage to defeat the mummies, but are later captured by the Pharaoh. When Kid eventually returns, he finds that his partners are being held captive.
After successfully releasing them, Liz and Patty transform but Kid doesn’t fight as he realizes that the Pharaoh’s coffin is perfect symmetrical. The Pharaoh beats the unwilling Kid down. Kid then lies on the ground as the Pharaoh prepares for the final blow. The Pharaoh comes out of his coffin to end it, but Kid notices nothing symmetrical about it anymore but the smiley-face-like jewel on his forehead. Kid then gets up and shoots the pharaoh down, destroying everything but the jewel. However, in the process, he destroyed the pyramid of Anubis. As punishment, Shinigami takes all the souls he had collected
6. Kikyo (Inuyasha)
Best Anime Snipers. Kikyō was known as a compassionate, kind, caring and considerate woman before her death. She showed great sympathy toward everyone, even her enemies. This was seen when she tended to Onigumo’s well-being despite him being a bandit. She also had compassion toward Kansuke, and sympathy toward Inuyasha. Kikyō was also very good with children during her lifetime; no matter what village she went to, the children were always fond of her.
When she was alive, Kikyō was also very devoted to her duties as a priestess and completely incorruptible, not even using the Shikon Jewel to save her life when she could have, instead instructing Kaede to burn it along with her body to prevent it from falling in the hands of those that would abuse it. Despite her compassion, before meeting Inuyasha, she rarely, openly showed any emotions, always maintaining a calm, seemingly apathetic composure, akin to Sesshōmaru. Unlike him however, Kikyō did not hide the fact that she cared for others, especially her younger sister, Kaede.
5. Snipe (My Hero Academia)
Best Anime Snipers. Snipe reminds Shota in the offices that students shouldn’t choose lightly for their internships. Snipe is with the other teachers when the students arrive. He then fights Toru and Mezo, where he shoots and hides but eventually, Toru manages to handcuff him. We see Snipe again in a flashback of an interview where he talks about Lady Nagant and her alter. He explains that he’s only the #2 long-range hero because Lady Nagant has always held the number one spot
4. Duke Togo (Golgo 13)
Best Anime Snipers. Duke Togo, aka Golgo 13, is a contract killer who will stop at nothing. As soon as a contract is signed, where everyone considers the thing impossible, Golgo 13 succeeds. Of course, the more difficult the task, the more colossal the amount of money demanded; in the animated series, it is almost always three million US dollars. Golgo 13 is the longest manga in history. In April 2021, he entered the Guinness Book of World Records for his record for “the greatest number of volumes published for a single manga series”, dethroning Kochikame.
3. Vachir (Avatar)
Vachir did what he was told by the prince and left the Yuyan Archers, though he kept his equipment and uniform. Sometime later, he became a part of the Rough Rhinos, and as their resident archer, he and the rest of the group attacked the village where Jet and his family lived around 91 AG.
In their attack, they killed his parents and destroyed the village, leaving Jet with a hatred of the Fire Nation for years to come. At some point between 95 and 99 AG, Vachir and his comrades were hired by Fire Lord Ozai to hunt down Onomu, a former Fire army general who had defected to the Earth Kingdom. Vachir took this mission especially seriously, believing that delivering Onomu to Ozai might help him in regaining his old status. In late 99 AG, Vachir and the other Rough Rhinos invaded another Earth Kingdom village, forcing several inhabitants to become refugees, among whom were Than and his pregnant wife.
2. Mine (Akame Ga kill)
Best Anime Snipers. Mine is a pale-skinned girl with pink eyes and has long pink hair which she wears with two large pigtails reaching to her waist and held up with light ribbons. Mine is dressed in a pink dress ending in lace, black tights and also pink shoes. Mine is the youngest member of Night Raid but paradoxically she tends to treat newcomers quite haughtily (like when she tells Tatsumi that he’s failed when he just joined Night Raid). This young rebel also has a temperamental temperament but is nevertheless very attached to her friends, we can see it when Sheele dies, she swears to avenge his death.
1. Alucard (Hellsing)
Best Anime Snipers. Alucard fights with ferocity, and often extreme cruelty, rarely shooting to kill until his target has been completely disabled and humiliated. However, he does have some humanity left in him, as he is still capable of shedding tears and showing affection for those who are dear to him, taken by Alexander Anderson to mean that he is not completely lost.
As he is essentially immortal and invulnerable, Alucard is very egotistical. He freely taunts and belittles his opponents, often allowing them to inflict seemingly fatal wounds before healing himself and counterattacking. One of his favorite methods of fighting is to allow himself to be blown to shreds before simply flowing back together. An example is shown in volume 2 when Alucard fights Luke Valentine. When Luke gains an advantage over Alucard, victory seems within his grasp.
