Anime is known for having unrealistic variations of hair colors. From purple to white we have them all. Among them here’s a list of some of the most popular white haired anime boys!
Now, white is a tricky color. Sometimes the hair looks white, the other time it looks silver/grey. So, I’m going to add any character with white as a dominant hair color on this list, which may include some otherwise grey or silver haired anime characters.
Without that said, here’s a list of the most popular anime boys with white hair!
Top 15 Anime Boys With White Hair
15. Yashiro Isana (K Project)
Yashiro, also known as “Shiro”, is the main character of the anime called K-project.
He is a cheerful, kind and fun loving boy who also happens to have lost his memory. Later in the series, even after finding the truth about himself and remembering his past, his personality remains the same (except he becomes much cooler.)
14. Allen Walker (D. Gray-man)
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you might’ve noticed me mentioning D. Gray-man on the list of anime similar to Demon Slayer.
Allen Walker is the main protagonist of D. Gray-man. In a world where demons are hated for causing pain to the human race, Allen was the only one who felt sympathy for the souls that were trapped within them.
While the anime itself is very dark, Allen is a very honest and kind hearted boy.
13. Tomoe (Kamisama Kiss)
Tomoe is a fox familiar from the anime Kamisama kiss. To be more precise, he is a kitsune youkai.
He has a smart and sly personality befitting his origin as a fox. However, he has a very short temper and behaves coldly. This is because, Tomoe can’t trust anyone easily, and so he is very rude and condescending towards new people.
12. Kuga Yuma (World Trigger)
Kuga is one of the main characters from World Trigger.
He is a white haired boy with a short stature. Despite his appearance, he is extremely strong when it comes to combat, and is easily one of the top fighters in his anime. However, he specializes in speed and battle tactics over raw power.
As for his personality, he is mostly carefree, but at the same time very cautious. As a result of being thrown into war constantly, his mind and body has become sharper and stronger.
Also, on a completely unrelated note, he is able to tell if people are lying to him or not. Thus making him one of the most useful characters when it comes to politics that occur in the anime.
11. Accelerator (A Certain Scientific Accelerator)
Accelerator made his first appearance as a villain in the anime ‘A certain magical index’ and later in ‘A certain scientific railgun’. In both of these series, accelerator was just a crazy white haired anime dude who killed thousands of clone girls to “level up” in order to become the strongest of all.
Last year, he got his own anime featuring his side of the story, with him as the main character.
He is initially shown as an extremely arrogant character, who is cold and a little psychotic. Later on we get to see his soft side, when he takes care of a little girl whom he was originally supposed to kill.
Accelerator is the badass, anti hero type of character who does things in his own way.
10. Bell Cranel (DanMachi)
Bell Cranel is the main hero of the anime ‘Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?‘ If that’s too wordy for you, it’s also called ‘DanMachi’ in short.
He is introduced as a low class adventurer who raids dungeons to make a living. However, on one such raid, he almost gets killed by a high level monster before being saved by a sword wielding girl from another guild. He falls in love with her and trains hard to become a man worthy of her.
While I may have made it sound like a romance story, it’s actually more on the action/adventure side. Bell is the very example of a character growing from Zero to a Hero.
9. Norman (The Promised Neverland)
Norman from The promised neverland is a very smart and intelligent white haired anime boy.
He has a very nice and kind personality, but can also be pretty deceptive and cunning if he puts his mind to it. Norman was a key character in the anime, who made it possible for the main character and the other children to escape from their orphanage and survive.
8. Garou (One Punch Man)
Unlike any other character on this list, Garou is a villain. He fights the heroes in One punch man and is even known as the ‘Hero hunter’.
While he is kind to children and is very logically sound in his judgement, the world does not accept his way of thinking.
“Why does the villain always have to lose?”
“Don’t villains train hard too? Why don’t they let them win?”
Garou was the only person to sympathize with the villains and appreciate them for their efforts. However, living in a world where heroes are praised and villains are shunned, he had no other choice to become a villain himself as he stayed true to his belief.
7. Sakata Gintoki (Gintama)
Gintoki is an interesting character. Everything about him contradicts. Sometimes, he is a very selfish, lazy and lethargic guy and the others, he is risking his life to save somebody else.
Sakata Gintoki is the main character of Gintama, and is the founder of the Yorozuya- a place where they take any and all sorts of requests from people and help them out in return for money.
What’s more interesting about him is that he is more than what meets the eye. His dark past as a samurai who defended his country against alien invasion and ultimately lost is tear jerking.
Back in the days he was called as “Shiroyasha” as he was a white haired dude wearing white clothes, who took down his enemies like a demon on Earth.
The devotion he has to protecting his friends and his country is also very moving.
On the outside, he may just be a good for nothing man, with no money or pride. But as the anime goes on and we get to know more about him, he becomes a man to respect.
6. Juuzou Suzuya (Tokyo Ghoul)
Suzuya is a boy from Tokyo Ghoul who has a white hair and a very feminine look. in the beginning of the series, several fans mistook him for a girl, given his girlish appearance and voice.
He might cute and beautiful, but as the saying goes, “danger hides in beauty and beauty hides in danger.”
Suzuya does not bend to the restrictions of reality or other normal human emotions and limitations. He does crazy things unimaginable to others making him look insane.
The reason for this behavior is his childhood abuse by his mother. He was constantly tortured until his mind broke.
However, later on in the series he becomes a respectable and tame person comparing to his past self. Also, he is no longer a white haired anime character as his hair becomes black after the personality change.
5. Kaneki Ken (Tokyo Ghoul)
Ken Kaneki is originally a shy and timid boy who had a secret crush on a girl.
Unfortunately, the girl turned out to be a ghoul and she tried to eat him on their first date. Skipping ahead, the girl ended up becoming a part of Kaneki after she died, due to an organ transplant.
Thus, he turned into a man eating ghoul himself. Things happened, and he ends up getting himself tortured by a mad man which flips his wild side. His hair turns white and his power skyrockets. He completely switches personality and becomes a fearsome ghoul.
4. Toshiro Hitsugaya (Bleach)
Toshiro is one of the captains of the shinigami realm.
He is a white haired anime character that looks like a kid, but is actually much older. As you can see from the picture above, he specializes in ice based attacks.
As for his personality, he is a very serious and studious person.
3. Kakashi Hatake (Naruto)
Kakashi needs no introduction. Being one of the characters from the world renown anime series ‘Naruto’, he is more popular than anyone on this list.
He is a fun and cheerful person who is introduced as a sensei to the trio of main characters- Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura.
Kakashi is also known as the ‘copy ninja’, as he is able to copy ninja techniques with the power of his eyes.
2. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)
Killua is one of those characters that are more popular than the main character. He is adored by the Hunter x Hunter fandom, and for a good reason.
He is the best boy no matter how you look at him. From his personality to his appearance (that switches to a cute cat mode every now and then), everything about him is likeable.
His backstory is also something to behold. Born in an assassin family, his body and mind are trained beyond human limits as he was supposed to be the next heir. But he decides to throw it all away, to lead a normal life.
1. Gojo Satarou (Jujutsu Kaisen)
Gojo is one of the most recent, hot looking white haired anime male character to be introduced in Jujutsu Kaisen.
Jujutsu Kaisen is an anime that took the world by a storm. While the story itself is unique and interesting, it is the characters that hooked the audience and created a fan out of them. The characters who made this anime popular and are responsible for all the hype are Gojo and Sukuna.
Leaving Sukuna aside (as he is unrelated to this post), Gojo is a sensei and is one of the most powerful characters in JJK. He is confident, light hearted and overwhelmingly cool.
