The list of anime characters who are 5’3″ (~160 cm) tall includes characters like Levi Ackerman, Emilia, Rin Tohsaka, Misaka Mikoto, Juuzou Suzuya, and many more. While it’s true that the majority of them are girls, there are also some popular anime boys included!

Here are the 10+ best anime characters who are 5’3 tall!


Bonus: Chitoge Kirisaki

Chitoge is a character that starts off as a tsundere. She is nice and soft when around her friends, though. She is mainly tsuntsun around the protagonist. That, however, changes later after she gets to know him better. Their moments are pretty adorable.

To sum it up, Chitoge is kawaii, athletic, intelligent, and honest. And if you love tsunderes, she is a perfect match for you too!

10. Yuu Nishinoya

  • Height: 159,3cm, later 160,5 cm
  • Anime: Haikyuu!!

October-born, Yuu is the libero for his school’s volleyball team. He is also the shortest player on this team. Despite that, his qualities are unmatched and he is highly respected by his teammates who even nicknamed him “Karasuno’s Guardian Deity” because of his remarkable skills.

Being both energetic and impulsive, it’s no surprise that Yuu attracts a lot of unwanted attention and problems. Surprisingly, he is considerate of the feelings and well-being of his friends.

9. Juuzou Suzuya

There are many reasons why people love Juuzou. He has a unique design, solid backstory, and is a bit crazy. However, this is due to his traumatic past so at least it makes sense why he behaves the way he does.

Juuzou is known for being merciless towards ghouls and laughing maniacally while sadistically tormenting or killing them.

With that being said, he still cares about his work partner even though he isn’t good at expressing these positive emotions outwards.

8. Mio Akiyama 

  • Height: 160cm
  • Anime: K-ON!

Mio is a quiet and shy person who enjoys spending time alone more than your average K-ON! character. However, she is a very compassionate and sensitive girl.

Introverted by nature, she dedicates this “lonely” time mainly to songwriting and reading.

While the rest of the K-ON! cast are happy-go-lucky girls, Mio is a very diligent & responsible individual. She is known for having good grades.

7. Ryuuko Matoi

  • Height: 160cm
  • Anime: Kill la Kill

Ryuuko is not your typical gentle heroine. She resembles a shounen protagonist if anything, being brash, stubborn, and fearless. Despite these “unladylike” qualities, she can be girlish and mellow-mannered too if she is in the right environment.

I find it interesting that she is embarrassed about fighting in her very revealing outfit and being quite self-conscious about her body, this element adds realism to her character. She is 17, after all!

6. Misaka Mikoto

Another tsundere on the list, yay.

Mikoto is an incredibly powerful Electromaster, being the third-ranked Level 5 Esper (there are only eight Level 5 Espers in the whole A Certain Universe). She wasn’t born OP, though—she trained really hard to achieve this result. While she is one of the most powerful Espers, she doesn’t look down on anyone and always lends her hand to anyone who needs it, be it a stranger or a friend. Her kindness and a strong sense of justice are her top qualities.

Apart from being a blushing tsundere, she is compassionate, smart, and sometimes childish.

5. Rin Tohsaka

  • Height: 159cm
  • Anime: Fate series

Rin is considered the best girl by many fans.

She is beautiful, intelligent, and determined, and on top of that, she is a model tsundere. And we all know how popular is the tsundere trope. It also helps that Rin is a powerful and independent magus who is constantly relevant in all Fate routes.

Also, thighs.

4. Emilia

  • Height: 160cm
  • Anime: Re:ZERO

This September-born beauty is the main heroine of one of the most popular dark isekai seriesRe:Zero − Starting Life in Another World.

Emilia is a powerful half-elf girl with spirit affinity, which means that she can form contracts with various spirits. She is a magic and spirit arts user who managed to form a contract with the Great Spirit of Fire, Puck.

When you look at Emilia, she looks very pure and innocent which matches her personality. She is a kind and caring individual who is outward-focused because she thinks and feels about other people. It doesn’t matter who or what she is against, she will never abandon people she cares about.

Emilia is also one of the five candidates to lead the kingdom and the love interest of the protagonist of the series.

3. Violet Evergarden

Violet is considered to be one of the most nuanced female characters in anime. She is a pretty blonde-haired girl with blue eyes but her beauty doesn’t stop there.

The thing with Violet is that she was used as a mere weapon for so long that she didn’t really understand feelings.

After the war ended, Violet couldn’t be a soldier anymore and had to find a place in the world that has changed so much. She started working as an Auto Memory Doll, a person who assists others by writing for them. She was hoping that she will come to understand the meaning of the words “I love you,” which was said to her by her major during the War’s final battle.

Because Violet spends so much time working as an Auto Memory Doll and meets so many different people, she is shaped & moved by them and starts to understand emotions better. She becomes a soft-hearted and helpful person who values human life above anything.

2. Kurisu Makise

  • Height: 160cm
  • Anime: Steins;Gate

Kurisu is a serious and mature girl who keeps her cool no matter what. Her snarky side peeks in her interactions with some of the lab members but she is usually friendly and kind when approached.

She loves swimming because she likes the feeling of floating in the water (I can relate)!

Who would not want a beautiful genius girlfriend who is a bit of tsundere?

1. Levi Ackerman

  • Height: 160cm
  • Anime: Attack on Titan

Levi is undoubtedly the most popular 5’3 character. Not only is he extremely capable but he is also protective of his comrades, making it very difficult for anyone to dislike him.

Indeed, he is short and slender, but he is extremely agile and highly skilled with a range of weapons and hand-to-hand combat. In fact, he is so powerful that he is considered humanity’s strongest soldier. He makes it seem like killing gigantic Titans is a piece of cake even though it’s really not. And even though Levi realizes that his combat skill is on a completely different level compared to other soldiers, he is not even slightly arrogant or cocky.

Earnest, skillful, and confident, it’s only natural that Levi quickly rose to the top and became the squad captain of the Special Operations Squad within the Survey Corps.

Ladies, I forgot to mention that he is a clean freak!

Hi, my name is Mia and I'm the founder of 9 Tailed Kitsune. I love anime, games, and esports (I am also a bit weird). My passion for anime sparked when I was about 7 (Phantom Thief Jeanne, hello!) and has never stopped.
