24 Eikichi Onizuka

Eikichi Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

Onizuka is a very presumptuous and vulgar guy that it often leads him into trouble. Although he is very hormonal when it comes to girls, he is still a virgin and seems to be unable to get a girlfriend. He likes sexy women to the point of even sexually tempting Nagisa Nagase (Ryuji Danma’s girlfriend) without caring that his friend was right behind him. He is often referred to as a pervert and has a fetish with smelling young ladies fresh panties in their drawers.

Quite noticeably, she appears to be a pragmatist first and foremost, as when she told Kuroda the hitman that she didn’t care what kind of profession the winner of the tournament was, seemingly unfazed by any moral shortcomings the candidates had. From this, it can be inferred that she was the type of person who will do almost anything she deems necessary to accomplish her goals. This mentality is what compelled her to push herself and others beyond their apparent limits.

21 Kisuke Urahara

Kisuke Urahara Bleach


Teachers Anime Characters. Though usually a laid-back, optimistic, jovial, humble and eccentric man, Urahara shows a deceptively cunning and serious side when the situation warrants it. He commonly uses idle conversation and outward concern to distract his opponents.Despite his care-free attitude, he always speaks politely, but is sometimes sarcastic. Yoruichi Shihōin notes he tends to go over the top with whatever he becomes passionate about. He has described himself as a “mere honest, handsome, perverted businessman.

20 Iruka Umino

Iruka Umino


Iruka is described as being both big-hearted, and soft-hearted. This is most often seen through his teaching methods, often keeping a watchful eye over his students as they progress. This however, does not mean that he is a pushover, as he can be stern when the situation calls for it, most often seen when he shouts at his students in order to get them to obey him. Despite the tragedy of losing his parents at a young age, Iruka remained a determined and strong-willed individual with a kind disposition. This is seen from his lack of hostility towards Naruto Uzumaki who was often the victim of misplaced anger at the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox who was sealed within Naruto. Because of this, Iruka came to be one of the only adults Naruto respected in his youth as well as the only person who could control Naruto’s behaviour to some degree. Naruto ignored all chūnin and jōnin who reprimanded him for painting all over the Hokage’s faces and only showed fear when Iruka showed up

19 Franken Stein

Franken Stein

Soul Eater!

Teachers Anime Characters. Stein is an overly intelligent and science-savvy man, so he doesn’t accept concepts like love, which he considers superficial, and his entire life revolves around his experiments. His favorite pastime is to dissect everything. Additionally, Stein does not hesitate to use violence when necessary, even on Shibusen’s students despite the fact that they are all under Master Shinigami’s protection. He turns out to be very sensitive to Madness, he shows it and does not hide it, although he tries to fight against this inclination of his personality. In these moments, he is subject to a number of sordid hallucinations. But Madness sleeps inside Stein. Long before the Great Devourer was awakened, he was already a crazy person by nature.

Mira describes him as a cold and somber, even completely apathetic individual; Spirit, for his part, readily concedes that the scientist is a particularly sadistic and dangerous person, harmful both to others and to himself, and even psychopathic/psychotic. At one point in the series, the Death Scythe adds that Stein is simply a “sadistic hedonist”. Indeed, the scientist has destructive impulses that he himself finds it difficult to contain which can push him to cause harm to those around him, and which makes him conducive to some deviations.

Under the influence of Madness, Stein is no longer the same. He no longer asks questions and acts as he pleases, sometimes for the simple purpose of having fun. He knows no limits and is extremely violent, as well as prone to killing – as shown in a flashback during the anime during which he is ready to “euthanize” one of his classmates to dissect him; he is, fortunately, stopped by Spirit. Because of this inclination, and also for other reasons known only to him, Shinigami makes sure to always have an eye on him.

16 Tōtōsai

Teachers Anime Characters.


Tōtōsai could be described as eccentric, insane, or senile. At some times, Tōtōsai acts like he is suffering from Alzheimer’s, by claiming that he does not remember things that happened recently to avoid being punished. He loves to poke fun at others, even with Inuyasha, although he usually ended up with a whack to the head in this case.

Tōtōsai is protective of the blades he forged, even wanting to end Tessaiga’s suffering at Inuyasha’s hands by melting it into cutlery (during his first meeting with Inuyasha). He could not stand crafting blades through or for evil means, banishing his apprentice Kaijinbō for killing ten innocent children to forge a demonic sword. He is greatly concerned for his life, knowing that Sesshōmaru and other demons would kill him if he didn’t comply with their demands. On a fundamental level, though, Tōtōsai had a strong sense of honor and refuses to do anything immoral.

15 Nozomu Itoshiki

Teachers Anime Characters.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

He is regularly an extremely negative and realistic person, going so far to attempt to ruin his whole classes’ dreams on a worksheet he designed on future jobs in one episode.

Nozomu is also a pure form of negativity and stress, one example being; when the students ran into him at a hot spring. He refused to get into it due to it removing vital toxins, but was eventually forced into it, only to disintegrate in the water, leaving his robe and glasses behind. 

14 Junichiro Kagami

Junichiro Kagami

Ultimate Otaku Teacher

Junichirou is a carefree person who only does what he wants. Even when he is forced to do something he does not want to do, he always somehow includes the thing that he wants to do in the thing that he does not want to do. Just like the where he does not want to be a teacher, and ends up influencing his students with his gaming sites and so on.

13 Koro-sensei


Assassination Classroom

It was revealed that he was raised in an environment “where everybody could easily betray one another to the point that one could only trust oneself”. Through these hardships, he decided to become an assassin to survive. Despite gaining an apprentice, he only saw him as a tool for his goals, which drove the latter to finally betray his master.

12 Aikurou Mikisugi

Aikurou Mikisugi

Kill la Kill

Aikurō can easily be described as flamboyant and flirtatious, but can be serious and direct when he has to. Secretly, he takes on the personality of a tired, unenthusiastic professor. He is a soft-spoken glamor with a habit of slowly stripping his clothes and making moves on Ryūko whenever they are in private, much to Ryūko’s sadness. Although he revealed the existence of Nudist Beach and him being his agent to Ryūko, she didn’t believe him due to the organization’s ridiculous name, earning a surprised and annoyed expression from the man, showing that he is very proud of the resistance group. Despite all this, Aikurō cared for his students and often spoke with Mako rather casually about the situation.

11 Jiraiya



Jiraiya was a gregarious man, cracking jokes at his own expense and laughing happily afterwards. In his interactions with others, he liked to pretend to be selfish, upsetting them so he could piss them off with his humor.[7] Even entering battle, he never missed an opportunity to strike outlandish kabuki poses and present himself spectacularly, these introductions were often interrupted in one way or another, and Jiraiya was quick to express his dissatisfaction with officials. Friends and foes alike loved Jiraiya for his eccentricities, admiring that someone so seemingly irreverent could actually be an extremely gifted shinobi. He was deeply loyal to Konoha despite his many travels, not hesitating to threaten to kill Tsunade if she betrayed the village, despite their friendship. Jiraiya also didn’t hesitate to attempt to kill his former best friend Orochimaru in retaliation for their teacher’s death, nor to threaten the life of his former student Nagato when he learned that he was the true leader of Akatsuki, despite the pain it caused him. Jiraiya felt that his quirks made him incapable of being Hokage, as he didn’t think he was responsible enough for the position, and that he felt unworthy of such honor, due to his past abuses and failures.

10 Satoru Gojo

Satoru Gojo

Jujutsu Kaisen

Satoru is a complex individual, as he is generally nonchalant and cheerful towards people such as his students and colleagues, but unsympathetic and cruel towards people such as the elders of the Exorcist Organization. [10] He is very confident in his abilities and his reputation as a powerful exorcist; casually dismissing Ryomen Sukuna’s personal threats and saying he could defeat the Plague King even if it turned out to be a tough fight.

9 Mephisto Pheles

He has also shown a high degree of arrogance, referring to himself as “the one and only Igneel” during Grandeeney’s visit.It is also implied by Igneel himself that before he met Natsu he neither hated humanity nor did he have any love for humans in the slightest. However, his encounter with the boy and raising of him, gave him the ability to love them.Metalicana himself even described Igneel as being the Dragon who loved humans more than any other.

7 Kakashi

Kakashi Teachers Anime Characters.


Teachers Anime Characters. At first glance, Kakashi comes across as solitary, calm, detached and casual, even apathetic. He always looks vaguely sleepy, always arrives late for appointments and always finds a bogus excuse to justify himself. But it has not always been so, the events that took place in his childhood when he became a jônin and which led to the death of his comrade Obito Uchiha greatly influenced him. Kakashi was then a serious young man, respectful of codes to excess and in fact always punctual. However, he suffered from a certain lack of team spirit which ended in tragedy. Since then, for Kakashi, group work, the protection of his comrades and his students is a top priority. This is why he will always strive to instill team spirit in the members of Team 7 under his command, and in particular in Sasuke Uchiha whose character is very close to that which he had when young.

6 Kumiko Yamaguchi

Teachers Anime Characters.


Kumiko looks weak but she is very skilled at fighting. Its shows at the First Episode that she dodges the Pachinko threw by her student but, she pretended that she was so surprised that she really did it. Upon facing delinquents, troublemakers and gangsters, Kumiko is shown as very serious and strict when she is about to take them down.

5 Biscuit “Bisky” 

Biscuit "Bisky" HxH
Anime Hunter X Hunter

Teachers Anime Characters. Biscuit has a devious personality. She has a tendency to use her cutesy appearance and demeanor to her advantage, whether it is for gathering information, getting what she wants, or acting innocent and helpless in combat to deceive her opponents. She jokingly said that if someone insists on using an honorific, they must call her -chama (-chan + -sama). Though in the beginning she was out to destroy Gon and Killua’s friendship for fun, at the end of Greed Island she acknowledges that she is close to developing parental feelings toward the two of them. She is prone to violent outbursts whenever she is left out of a conversation or reminded of her true age; Killua often becomes one of her victims because of his wisecracks about it. She can also get into arguments with people whose personalities differ from her own, such as Kurapika. Despite her sternness and deceitful personality, Biscuit is easily persuaded once someone compliments her appearance; when Kurapika acknowledges her looking like a princess, Biscuit immediately becomes flattered and agreeable.[5] On the other hand, despite her hard training to reach it, she detests her true form, as it does not match her idea of femininity.

4 Mr Popo

Mr Popo
Anime Dragon Ball

Teachers Anime Characters. He is an expert in martial arts since he teaches them to his students so that they can face powerful enemies. He is a genius who has lived for more than a century. He served the previous god and the Earthling guardians before God. He helps rebuild Shenron when needed since he is the creator of the model. Mr. Popo is much more powerful than Son Goku when they first met, and it is he who takes charge of his training after the death of Piccolo Daimaô. He is short in stature, has black skin, large, expressionless round eyes, and thick red lips. He is dressed in traditional Indian clothes, ie a sleeveless vest, golden bracelets, white puffy pants and slipper-like shoes. Like Kuririn, he does not have a nose. In appearance, Mr. Popo resembles a traditional genius of North African folklore. It’s casually a powerful fighter, he manages to inflict a severe lesson on Son Goku who had just defeated Piccolo Daimaô. Mister Popo’s training is among the most severe in the manga and probably one of the deepest. Thus, thanks to his skills, Son Goku manages to erase his presence. We can even say that this skill will bother the Scouters of the Saiyans and Frieza’s henchmen so much.

3 Sanae Furukawa

Teachers Anime Characters.


Normally, Sanae is a very childish woman who is shown to be a cry-baby, especially when someone insults her bread, but, when needed, she can be very strong-willed and dependable that she often conceives of strange concepts to make bread, which when attempted prove inedible and are never sold, except for a few people that buy it out of pity.
One of the series’ frequent gags consists of Akio Furukawa making a negative comment on Sanae’s bread while unaware of her presence, causing her to run off with tears in her eyes, and Akio stuffing his mouth with her bread and saying he loves it, as he chases behind her.
She also tutors children in the Furukawa Cram School and she’s quite proud of the way people often mistake her for Nagisa’s older sister because of her youthful appearance. This can be seen in the Sunohara siblings arc, where she poses as Youhei Sunohara’s girlfriend and no one suspects that she is actually an adult.

2 Yoko Littner

Yoko Littner

Tengen Toppa Gurren Legann

Yoko is shown to be a very mature and quite knowledgeable woman, especially when it comes to survival and general common sense. Yoko is a kind and caring person but can become quite irritable and aggressive sometimes, particularly when dealing with belligerent or uncooperative people, namely Kamina. Despite this, Yoko is a person who can endure and even handle most situations while maintaining a level head. Perhaps due to this, she has built up a well earned reputation as an excellent rifleman, a fact she is very confident in, as well as the resident sniper of the Dai-Gurren brigade.
Unlike Kamina and more like Simon, Yoko prefers to think things through before charging head-first into a battle and is easily the most rational member of the group along with Rossiu and generally, Simon. Yoko is also shown to be a very protective person and cares deeply for her team mates and friends.
