    Criteria:
    • Must be fantasy themed! So samurais, ninjas, kunoichi, knights... anything along those lines.
    • No characters if their MAIN weapon is magic or guns - best left for another topic. ;)

    Some of my favourites:

    mikasa-ackerman-089.jpg
    Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan
    For being badass and her strong affection in protecting Eren above pretty much everything else. Not much more needs to be said. ;)

    saito-hajime-hakuouki-036.jpg
    Saito Hajime from Hakouki
    Despite this title being a reverse harem, I quite liked the Hakouki anime series. Lots of samurai action against supernatural and Shinsengumi's enemies. Whilst Chizuru Yukimura was the centre of the show, by being protected by the Shinsengumi's finest, I quite liked Saito Hajime for being badass in a cool-headed and more quiet way.

    mash-kyrielight-shielder-fate-grand-order-anime-087.jpg
    Mash Kyrielight (Shielder) from Fate/Grand Order: First Order
    Mash has a very unique weapon - a big giant shield for both defensive and offensive tactics! Also she's super kind, super cute and has no qualms with charging into danger to make sure senpai is safe. The fact she also stood up to Saber Alter makes Mash pretty badass too in my opinion (even if she had a little bit of help from Ritsuka Fujimaru).


    How about you? Who are your favourite anime warrior characters?

    Hmm... Hmm?... Hmm...

    latest?cb=20151210083403
    Diarmuid Ua Duibhne(Fate/Zero)
    - One of my favorites. Fighting with two spears looks so badass. And he's handsome too(No homo.)
    LOOK AT DEM SPARKLES.

    latest?cb=20160330055307
    Darkness(KonoSuba)
    - This hardcore pervert of a Crusader. Can I really say anything more? I mean, she has her preference, so yeah. I love her.

    A few others, but I'm too lazy to even remember their names.

    welp big boss Optic has spoken on my behalf as well... ^^ although, to be honest, the anime was kind of unfair to everyone else besides hijikata... Having played the game as welL, I can guaratee he's even cooler than that

    I think it's a rule that all Lancers in the Fate universe - the mainline one, anyway, the spin offs haven't really been my cup of tea - need to be incredibly awesome, and have incredibly terrible luck.

    With that said, Daryun from Arslan Senki is an awesome character, and struck me as being a cut above most warrior archetype characters - he'd be my number one pick, though Lancer (and the other Lancer, as well) definitely deserves an honorable mention.

    My favorite fantasy warrior is Archer from "Fate Stay Night", Archer is actually the future version of Emiya Shirou, who became a hero through Emiya's wish to save innocent lives. I think we all know this!

    If Sayaka wasn't already my waifu, this badass Queen would be. It's a shame Nasu didn't explore her struggles of hiding her gender during a time when women were still not respected.

    And of course, there's this other badass warrior...

    And who could ever forget this guy?
