Starting our list with the blue haired anime character Rimur’s best friend, Demon Lord Milim Nava. We have seen three different forms of Milim throughout the story, however, the pink hair ponytails remain the same. Being the daughter of Veldanava and hailing from a powerful race, she was known as the True and Ancient Demon Lord.

Milim has always been one of the trustable allies of Rimuru and she continues to do so now. She brings in cheerful energy and is one of the most fun characters we have encountered in the series with an upbeat personality. When it comes to power, her formidable reputation is a testament to how powerful she is.

9. Bocchi-Chan (Bocchi the Rock!)

Next up, we have the guitarist and lyricist of the Kessoku Band, Hitori Gotoh, who is popularly known as Bocchi-Chan. Her name originates from the sentence ‘Hitori Bocchi,’ which essentially means lonely. Hence, Bocchi is designed to be a shy and reserved character in the series.

Despite having social anxiety, Bocchi turned out to be a fan-favorite character with pink hair as many could relate to her character. Her pink hair also could symbolize the innocence and calmness in her. Bocchi aspires to become a musician because of her deep passion for guitar.

The journey of her trying to connect with others through her music is heartful to watch, and you’re missing out if you haven’t already watched Bocchi the Rock!

8. Mitsuri Kanroji (Kimetsu no Yaiba)

Who couldn’t love the adorable Love Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps, Mitsuri Kanroji? More than her bewitching beauty, fans fell in love with her right after witnessing her backstory. Moreover, Mitsuri doesn’t just have complete light pink hair but also blends in effectively with her green color at the end.

Akin to her Hashira title, Mitsuri is an incredibly sentimental character who cares for her nakama more than anything. Don’t be misled by her jovial look if you are a demon though as when it comes to battle, Mitsuri is by far one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters we have met in the series.

7. Saiki Kusuo (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K)

How can we forget about our friendly neighborhood psychic Saiki Kusuo from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K? The pink head in this series, more commonly known as Saiki K, is one of the most OP main characters in an anime. Even though Saiki is a strong psychic (and has other great abilities), all he wants is a regular existence.

His valiant efforts to keep his abilities hidden from others often end up in finding himself in a precarious situation where he must exert power to help his friends. Don’t get confused, neither Saiki is a serious psychic nor does the series tend to get serious. It is a light-hearted joy ride to watch an anime character with hot pink hair trying to lead a normal life.

6. Hisoka Morow (Hunter x Hunter)

The appearance of Hisoka who has neon pink hair in the series was heavily inspired by the real-life Jester’s design. Hisoka is not at all your typical anime villain, his multifaceted personality and goals are the primary reasons that make his character more captivating. His clown-inspired appearance can mislead anyone to view him as a funny character.

But he is not a force to be messed with. Hisoka has been part of Hunters and also as a part of the iconic Phantom Troupe in the series. Hisoka’s hunger and obsession with power have always been intriguing to watch and undoubtedly he is one of the best anime characters to don neon-pink hair.

5. Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)

Fairy Tail’s central protagonist, Natsu Dragneel is one of the best anime characters with pink hair. As a shonen MC, Natsu is a fierce and tempered character who will go to any length to protect his nakama. Being the Mage of the Fairy Tail guild, Natsu is known for his formidable powers and as a fire dragon slayer.

Natsu’s character is one of the driving forces of the series. With prickly pink hair and unwavering confidence, he climbed his way to be considered one of the great main characters in anime. As the series has come to an end already, you should meet Natsu as soon as possible if you haven’t had a chance before.

4. Shōko Nishimiya (A Silent Voice)

To this day, Shōko Nishimiya from A Silent Voice is one of the most incredibly well-written female characters in anime. She has dusty rose color hair and is a deaf girl. Akin to the qualities associated with the pink color, she is a very kind and sympathetic soul. However, as a victim of bullying, she turned into a depressed and self-hating individual later on.

I believe this is why the author decided to go with dusty pink hair instead of a regular bright pink to symbolize the new change in her character. Analysis aside, Shoko is also one of the most important characters that raised awareness about the difficulties experienced by those with disabilities.

3. Zero Two (Darling in the Franxx)

Even if you haven’t watched Darling in the Franxx yet, you must have come across Zero Two once already in the popular dodging meme. Zero Two is a Human x Klaxo hybrid and is the female protagonist in the Darling in the Franxx.

She was also infamously known as the “Partner Killer” and went by the codename 002. She had an enigmatic appearance with light pink hair and red horns. Throughout the story, Zero Two has a very complicated persona due to her past. Nevertheless, she is regarded as a character with a striking beauty and tenacity.

2. Anya Forger (Spy x Family)

The telepathic and adorable kiddo with light pink hair instantly became the fan-favorite among the anime community when the Spy x Family series debuted. Anya Forger’s rise as one of the best anime characters in history was no fluke. The countless memes based on her hilarious facial reactions will always be in circulation and her popularity will only soar higher.

If you remove Anya’s character, I highly doubt if the series would have become popular in the first place. That is how important she is to the series, and she continues to amuse us with her adorable reactions.

1. Sakura Haruno (Naruto)

Sakura’s name instantly brings to mind the animosity she endured from her admirers. However, when more and more people began to recognize Sakura’s character, the situation started to turn around slowly. In a recent Naruto global popularity poll, Sakura secured third place overall with over 489,619 votes. One should note that Sasuke, Naruto, and, well, the list goes on, were ranked lower than her in the global poll.

Sakura’s character started to resonate with the audience and there is no other way to explain this, isn’t it? Although she experienced ups and downs as a character, generally, her experiences made her one of the most beloved female characters in Naruto. Furthermore, Sakura became the most formidable Kunoichi now after outperforming everyone in her way. No matter what, Sakura is the best anime character rocking with pink hair now.

We are aware that there are still a lot of well-known anime characters with pink hair that we have not listed here. We will update them all soon, so stay tuned for more. That being said, which pink-haired anime character is your favorite? Did we miss out on them? Tell us in the comments section below.
