Did you know that in medieval times, freckles were considered witches’ marks?
Fortunately, things have quite changed since then.
I personally love freckles on real people as much as I love them on anime characters. They spice them up quite neatly! And I wish I had more freckles but since I don’t go out too much during summer they don’t show up on my cheeks as they used to. I will fix it next summer, I promise…
In this article, we will explore the top 10 anime characters who have adorable freckles!
Let me know in the comments if your fav was mentioned or skipped.
10. Lotte Jansson (My Little Witch Academia)
Lotte is a good-natured Finnish witch-in-training who looks after her friend and roommate, Ako (the protagonist of the series).
She is shy, timid, serene, and extremely supportive of her friend’s dream. Lotte is a solid BFF!
9. Marco Bott (Attack on Titan)
Marco is a trainee of the 104th Training Corps, along with prominent characters like Eren, Armin, and Mikasa.
He is an idealist faithful to the king, wishing to serve in the Military Police. Others might want to join the Military Police for their own comfort, however, this is not the case with Marco, his reasons are genuine.
A natural-born leader greatly respected by other trainees, his calm behavior, amiability, and good-naturedness earned him the place on this list.
8. Lisbeth (Sword Art Online)
Lisbeth doesn’t shine as bright as Asuna since she is not a fighter and doesn’t get much screentime.
She, however, shines in another area: blacksmithing. In fact, she opens a blacksmith store on the 48th floor of Aincrad in SAO.
Fans praise her for her playfulness, friendliness, and eloquence. I just hate that she becomes a simp of Kirito as well. 🙁

7. Ja’Far (Magi)
The first things you notice when you look at him are his white hair and freckles. His design is impeccable!
However, Ja’Far is far from perfect and that’s what makes you love him even more.
Being the right hand of Sinbad, the king of Sindria, it’s more than obvious that the two have come a long way. The mutual trust between them is simply beautiful.
He is a stern and short-tempered individual, often scolding the King for his outrageous behavior. When angered, he shows his dark side, capable of heavily injuring or even killing those who threaten the safety of the people he loves.
While there are some flaws to his personality, he is a gentle and polite person to the majority of people.
6. Tsukimi Kurashita (Princess Jellyfish)
Tsukimi is a young, socially awkward otaku girl obsessed with jellyfish. She hopes to become an illustrator one day.
She lives in a rented house with other eccentric people who are petrified in the presence of stylish people (weird, I know). Tsukimi is also scared of being around males.
The biggest problem is her low self-esteem—despite being fairly attractive, she finds herself ugly.
She does, however, have one important redeeming quality—kindness.
5. Kanamori Sayaka (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!)
Now, look at this queen of capitalism. 😀 She definitely looks unique and doesn’t fit into the typical cute girl trope at all. Which in turn makes her special. But it doesn’t stop there.
Kanamori might look like a rather unexpressive person, but she is a really pragmatic and opportunistic girl who simply loves money. And since she hangs out with a huge weeb, she decides to combine the pleasant with the useful and they end up creating an animation club where she acts as a producer.
4. Todashi Yamaguchi (Haikyuu!)
Todashi is a pinch server playing for the Karasuno High Volleyball Club.
When he was a child, he was bullied for his freckles and slenderness.
It might be a mix of genetic predispositions and experiences that caused him to be so shy and reliant on others.
Although not the most talented player, he makes up for that by hard work, which is extremely motivational.
3. Ymir (Attack on Titan)
Another tragic character on this list.
Ymir is a graduate of the 104th Cadet Corps and a former member of the Scout Regiment. Before she became the Jaw Titan, she had a really tough life.
While she promised to live only for herself after she became human again, it doesn’t seem like she managed to do that after all. After she met Historia, she realized that all she wants to is to protect this delicate adorable girl. She experienced the complex emotion we call love.
Although Ymir seems mean and prideful, she has a mellow side too. This is shown when she shows remorse over her past actions and selflessness when it comes to “returning what she once borrowed”.

2. Portgas D. Ace (One Piece)
Ace is easily one of the most popular characters in One Piece. His popularity is on a par with characters like Nami, Brook, or Jinbe. He is the sworn brother of Luffy and they grew up together on Mt. Corvo in the Goa Kingdom of the East Blue.
Ace is a relatable character although a very tragic one. We all fight some inner demons and he represents that and it makes him also very human.
He is handsome, powerful, loyal, and protective. He represents “the big brother” everyone wants to have. How can anyone not like someone like that?
Apart from that, he is the one who made Luffy—the protagonist of the series—the person he is today.
1. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)
Sweet Deku is probably the most popular character with freckles. It’s no wonder—he is the protagonist of the popular shounen series called My Hero Academia.
His underdog story makes you motivated. Deku makes sure to make you smile with his never-give-up attitude and kindness despite all the hardships he has experienced.
In fact, he reminds me a lot of Naruto Uzumaki with his good morals and it’s truly endearing to see him grow and improve.
