Anime characters come in all shapes, sizes, and color. Yet it’s expected for anime characters to have black hair since it’s what Japanese are usually born with. They might be not well-represented in terms of number but anime boys with white hair does not disappoint in terms of look, personality, and overall charisma. In fact, many would agree if I say that they are usually the anime characters with dark secrets, hidden powers, or bizarre personalities which made them very fun to watch. Have you just been starting to watch anime and haven’t seen a lot of white-haired characters? Look nowhere else since this article is the right place to be! Read further and get to know the coolest anime guys who looks cool in their white hair you’ll ever find.
Sebas Tian from Overlord
What separates men among boys? Well for me, it’s all about attitude. Although he is worthy of being a part of this list, I can’t really say that Sebas Tian from Overlord can referred as a boy. He is far too gentle and wise to be called one yet his charm and looks can easily surpass those who are several years younger. Sebas Tian is the loyal butler of Ainz Ooal Gown. He was designed to be nothing more or less but he eventually inherited the passionate and merciful heart of his creator. This was manifested when he got out of his way to save a dying girl in the street even though it would compromise his mission. Being a gentleman alone makes him worthy to be a part of this list. Counting his stunning looks, manly posture, and outstanding martial art skills makes it unquestionable.

Killua Zoldyck from Hunter X Hunter
There are only a few anime characters who are as well-loved as Killua Zoldyck from Hunter X Hunter. He is one of the sons of a well-known assassin family. He is one of the cutest white haired male anime characters, but also one of the deadliest.
His adventure in the series started when he met Gon during the Hunter exam. This boy is not like the usual assassin. He is not emotionless and would never kill in cold blood. Killua is a complete opposite of his other brothers because he values family and friendship. His strong dedication in protecting the innocent Gon made him more like a brother towards him than a simple friend. If you’re look for an ultimate bromance experience then you should watch Killua and Gon’s wild adventures!
Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul
A world where humans and ghouls coexist would sound absurd for anyone. Yet, Ken Kaneki considers this scenario as his dream. He was once a normal human but unpredictable series of events turned him into a half-human and half-ghoul. People around him think of ghouls as nothing more than wild monsters who treat humans as food. But Kaneki, through his unique condition, is able to understand both sides. There are also ghouls who mean no harm and only seek for a place to belong in the community. As the story progresses, Ken Kaneki’s point of view regarding ghouls changed and he began his journey towards realizing his seemingly impossible dream, a world where humans and goals can live together peacefully. This white-haired dreamer might turn from a charming young lad to a ruthless beast through his ghoul form in a split second but his admirable and equal compassion towards both man and ghoul should be enough to land him a spot in this list.
Kaneki is not only charming but considered as a hot anime guy as well. Aside from the physical aspect, this is also because of his character and actions. There are many events in the anime series where fans have seen this feat as well.
Gin from Gintama
The perfect combination of anime and humor is a dish only a few anime shows was able to pull off. One of them is Gintama where the lead character is a samurai-wielding man-for-hire called Gin. He is the founder and active leader of a company composed of only three individuals who are willing to do anything for a price as long as it does not go against their morals. Whether it’s a rescue mission or a simple household chore, Gin and his gang will happily help you out. But don’t let his laidback attitude and funny facial expressions fool you. Gin is a skilled and well-known swordsman. His companions also have several tricks in their sleeves that can help them escape dangerous situations and even capture notorious criminals. A list of the coolest anime characters in white hair is definitely incomplete without Gintama!
Soul from Soul Eater
Soul is not the average battle junky. He may look like one but he actually came from a wealthy family of musicians. Soul was frustrated after failing to live up to his family’s expectations so upon discovering his weapon heritage, he did not hesitate in joining DWMA to prove his worth. Soul has a laid back personality and would prefer doing everything in a cool way than do his best and look bad in the process. But his attempts to be cool backfire in most occasions. One of his friends even describes him as careless and arrogant as he tries so hard to look cool. There are a lot of hilarious scenes in Soul Eater that can attest to this but before you criticize his clumsiness and foolishness, be sure to appreciate how he usually ends up saving the day for everyone.
Ja’far from Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic
Do you have a best friend? Someone who is always by your side through thick and thin? Consider yourself among the luckiest persons on earth. It’s envious to be Sinbad from the anime series Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic not just because of his position as king but also for having loyal right-hand, Ja’far. He was forced to become an assassin and kill his own parents at a young age. Sinbad became his savior as their paths cross and from that day onwards they became allies bound by loyalty and friendship. Ja’far is a friend anyone would love to have simply because he is willing to sacrifice everything just to guarantee his friend’s well-being. He might have a sincere and calm attitude but Ja’far is always ready to bring out the hidden rage in him whenever the situation dictates.
Isana Yashiro from K
The world has several faces. For people who are living in peaceful and prosperous lands, the world is teeming with reasons to smile and be hopeful for a better future every day. On the other hand, for those who live in warring countries, the world is dark and a hopeless place. No one wins in a war. This message has been spread worldwide in various mediums even in anime. Among several anime shows that aim to pass this idea to its viewers is K where Isana Yashiro plays the lead role. In this anime show, he is a scientist and researcher whose main goal is to stop war through science. His thought was transferred to the body of a young boy before he could do so and that’s how his struggles to return to his former body and form a world of peace started. Who could not love this peace-loving, kind, and handsome white-haired anime boy?
Haise Sasaki from Tokyo Ghoul
Quiet and reserved persons are prone to having hidden evil personalities or dark origins. This is why many are reluctant about loving ominous anime characters especially if they are introduced early in the show and various questions about where they came from and how their personality developed remained unanswered. But don’t worry too much if we are talking about Haise Sasaki from Tokyo Ghoul. For starters, he is one of the main protagonists of the anime show so expect him to be on the side of justice. He may not be a fan of justice and doing good acts for the sake of others but he is true to his words. He is also a dependable ally. Haise started as a character with unreadable personality. It can even be said that he was designed to be an enemy but rollercoaster of events turned him into Kaneki’s ally.
Zen Wistalia from Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime
Every girl anime fan has already imagined their favorite character as a knight in shining armor riding a white horse approaching towards them. This sweet moment is every woman’s dream and it can be made sweeter if the one playing as prince is the real deal like Zen Wistalia from Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime.
