Throughout my years of watching anime, I’ve noticed how I was drawn to characters with white/silver hair. I don’t think I know of a character with this hair colour who was not attractive (aside from characters who actually have white, greying hair due to age of course). I think this hair colour just gives characters a mysterious, ethereal charm, along with their entertaining personalities. You will notice that this list only contains male characters. I know that there are plenty of great female characters with this hair colour too, but I’m not as drawn to them. So without further ado, here are my current favorite characters with beautiful fair hair:
*I’ve linked the summaries to the titles for those who are not familiar with any of the series discussed below
Inuyasha (InuYasha): Inuyasha is half human and half demon who partners up with a human to gather the shards of the Sacred Jewel in order to fulfill his desire of becoming a full demon. InuYasha is one of my favorite animes and also the catalyst of my white/silver hair bias. Although riddled with flaws, Inuyasha is still a dynamic and admirable character. He’s funny, strong, and protects Kagome with all he’s got. I really enjoyed watching him every episode.
Tomoe (Kamisama Hajimemashita): A fox yokai turned familiar who serves the new land god, Nanami. He is the definition of loyal. Even when the previous land god left for 20 years, he kept up the maintenance of the shrine and waited for the land god to come back. Furthermore, I really like his aloof personality, and when he shows his caring side, especially when it comes to Nanami, it just melts my heart. Also, I can’t forget to mention how great he looks with long hair!
Mizuki (Kamisama Hajimemashita): This anime would not be the same without Mizuki. He is a divine white snake who was shrouded with loneliness after his land god perished; however, after meeting Nanami, she relieved him from his lonesome state which eventually lead him to voluntarily becoming her familiar. Mizuki is a great character. Although he can be manipulative, his innocent, child-like self is so entertaining to watch. He also has a good sense of responsibility and loyalty. I enjoy his interactions with Nanami and Tomoe. Personally, the most memorable scene he’s in is when he’s practicing playing on the flute to accompany Nanami’s Kagura dance practice, but he can’t even make a sound! It had me in stitches! Here’s the clip, but I think it’s funnier within the context of the episode.
Gin (Hotarubi no Mori e): It still breaks my heart when I think of Gin. Gin was abandoned in a forest when he was a baby. Taking pity on him, the forest lord casts a spell to save his life by making Gin’s body age slower than a normal human; however, if ever he comes into physical contact with another human, the spell would break, and he would disappear. It’s such a sad and cruel cost when Gin is such a sweetheart. Watching him is a breath of fresh air. He’s kind of like the boy-next-door. He would be one of my main reasons to rewatch the movie.
Shiro (K-project): a.k.a Yashiro Isana. He is the main protagonist in the series, and the moment he was introduced to the screen, I liked him immediately. He has an eccentric personality, and later in the show, he becomes a pretty impressive character. Due to his whimsical but kindhearted nature, he is a likeable character, not only to me, but to the other characters in the show as well.
Gokudera Hayato (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!): What drives Gokudera is his ambition to become the right-hand man of the 10th generation boss of the Vongola Family, Tsuna. And that ambition is what makes him such an interesting character. As a loyal character, he fights with everything he has for the Vongola Family and his comrades. Although he has a bad boy demeanor, he is one of the smartest guys in the gang. I think he is quite the charming character.
Thank you for reading! I’d love to know who your favorite white/silver hair characters are!
