Are you fed up with high school waifus on every corner? If so, you’re not alone! To switch things up, I’ve put together a list of mature anime girls who are fully developed physically, mentally, and chronologically.
But before we jump into the list, let me explain how I put this list together.
At first, I wanted to include only waifus who are over 30 years old. But to be honest, they’re pretty hard to find! Most anime girls are created with younger audiences in mind, so they’re usually in their teens or early 20s.
That’s why I decided to only include characters who are at least 20 years old. I also skipped any anime girls who look like they’re under 20, even if they’re technically older because I want this list to be all about MATURE anime girls. So if you’re looking for loli-looking characters, this list probably isn’t for you!
But enough explaining, let’s dive in!
20. Yamato (One Piece)
- Age: 28
Yamato is a pretty badass waifu who adds a lot of excitement to the One Piece storyline.
She is the daughter of the infamous pirate Kaido, but she doesn’t exactly see eye-to-eye with her dad’s crew.
Yamato has a wild and rebellious personality and even dresses up like Oden, a legendary samurai, which is pretty dope if you ask me.
And while she’s got a tough and confident attitude, she also has a kind heart and cares deeply about her friends.
Yamato is definitely someone you wouldn’t want to mess with, but she’s also someone you’d want on your side in a fight.

Even though she’s a goddess and has the option to reincarnate after she dies, she’s not about to give up on her current life. She values her individuality and wants to make the most of her time here.
When it comes to facing challenges, Bishamon doesn’t back down. She’s tough as nails and will push herself to the limit to get the job done. That was definitely on display when she faced off against Yato. Even though she was seriously injured, she never gave up or lost faith in her decisions.
