Another week, another top 10 list. Only this time, it’s going to be anime characters with names that start with the letter D.
I did thorough research to find the most popular and fan-favored characters with names that start with D, and my conclusion is that the characters whose names start with the letter D seem to be only males! Another discovery that I made is that most of them are villains, I wonder why? I mean, it might be just a coincidence but if you read the list below, most of them are straight antagonists!
Let’s dive into the list of the 10 most popular anime characters whose names start with the letter D!
10. Daisuke Kambe (The Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited)
Daisuke is the son of the billionaire Kambe family who works in the Detective Division for the Metropolitan Police Department.
His personality is as deadpan as his expression; he is calm and composed even in the most stressful situations. When others freak out, he remains unperturbed. Daisuke strongly believes that money can buy everything and utilizes his money and status to solve cases.
09. Denki Kaminari (BNHA)
Denki is one of the U.A. High School students who is trying to become a Pro Hero.
He is a friendly, outgoing, and lively boy who is often seen flirting (or rather trying to flirt) with female students from his class and other classes alike. Denki is not a studious person and is known for being inattentive during classes, which negatively affects his grades.
His Quirk allows him to generate electricity and cover his body in it (Killua, anyone?). While he can also emit this energy over a distance, Denki has little to no control over it, so he is quite reluctant to use it around his allies since it would shock everyone around him.
08. Doflamingo Donquixote (One Piece)
Doflamingo is the captain of the Donquixote Pirates and one of the most popular antagonists in One Piece. Many fans refer to him as one of the best villains introduced in the series mainly because of his drip and amazing, fleshed-out backstory.
In a sense, he is similar to Joker from The Dark Knight. He’s not only cruel and OP but also smart and manipulative, so you can never let your guard down around him. Doflamingo loves watching the chaos and doesn’t care how things turn out besides watching despite and misery.
07. Deidara (Naruto)
Deidara was an S-rank ninja who abandoned his village without the intention of ever returning. He was then forcibly recruited by Itachi into the infamous Akatsuki group.
A loud, funny, and goofy guy who is one of a few characters in Naruto who are pure evil for the sake of being evil. He just loves to blow shit up. Many of you know Megumin from KonoSuba and her love for explosions. Well, Deidara is the same, he is extremely passionate about his explosion-style art. Art is an explosion!
06. Dante (Devil May Cry)
Dante is a half-demon private supernatural investigator who is very diligent and serious when it comes to solving cases. He always follows through on any case.
He is an OP character with boosted agility, stamina, durability, accuracy, and hand-eye coordination.
Despite earning some money from completing jobs, he is always in debt because Dante is a spendthrift with careless spending habits.
05. Dabi (BNHA)
Dabi is a major villain character from BNHA that probably tops the list of completely irredeemable characters. He mercilessly murdered 30 innocent people and all he cares about is hurting the one who hurt him—even if that means hurting everyone else in the process. He is simply too far gone.
We know that he was a kid who was a failed product of Endeavor’s eugenics project, emotionally neglected, and not helped to grow in healthy ways which led to him destroying himself.
04. Decim (Death Parade)
At least 1200 years old, Decim is an arbiter for the dead. He works as a bartender at Quindecim, a bar where he serves his guests drinks and makes judgments upon the deceased.
As would Nana say: “With Decim, it’s all drinks and seriousness. Aside from that, he has no other saving graces.“
03. Daiki Aomine (Kuroko no Basket)
A big fan of Japanese idols, Daiki plays as the ace and power forward of Tōō Academy.
He possesses intangibles and a basketball sense that cannot be taught as if he was born to play the game. The combination of athleticism, technique, and most importantly intangibles makes him one of the strongest players in Kuroko no Basket.
02. Deishuu Kaiki (Bakemonogatari)
Deishuu is a con-artist specializing in fake apparitions.
Fans make a lot of memes about him being the best waifu from the series. Even though he first started off as a one-dimensional antagonist but turned out to be a complex and caring individual.
He has a gloomy personality, eloquent talk, and is proud to be pride-less. His expertise is the art of lying and tricking others for the sake of acquiring money.
01. Dio Brando (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventures)
According to MAL, Dio ranks highest among the anime characters whose names start with the letter D. Dio has over 14 000 members who marked him as their favorite character. Surprisingly, he is the series’s major antagonist who is not above using violence, manipulation, or seduction if it gets him closer to achieving his goals.
He is so power-hungry and determined to become the richest and most OP person in the world that he would go as far as killing others in cold blood.
