Anime gives us many stories and these stories introduce us to many characters. Interestingly enough, these characters have their own stories and thus are often well-written. Anime viewers usually like characters that are powerful and have a good stance. Tall Anime characters seem to fit these two aspects very well. Being taller than the average human height is some sort of superpower in itself. These characters usually also come with an immense amount of strength. Some of these characters take pride in their height while some envy others.
In the article, we will be looking into 10 anime characters who are considered to be taller than average height. These characters come from different genres thus having different backgrounds. Some of these characters are really tall while the others exceed this reality making them somewhat cooler. This list may include some mild to heavy spoilers, so be sure to proceed with caution.
Haiba Lev (Haikyuu!!)
The tallest character from Haikyuu!! is Lev Haiba from the Nekoma Volleyball Team. His first appearance was indeed scary, especially for Hinata. Lev’s intimidating height almost made him the perfect Volleyball player if not for his lack of game skills. His height, although it is a blessing, can also make him clumsier than others.
Lev measures up to 6 feet 4 inches when he was first introduced. Within the span of only two weeks, he grew by 2mm making him 6 ft. and 5 inches currently. For a 15/16-year-old, being that all is something cool. Not only this but towards the end of Haikyuu, after the time skip, Lev appears to have grown a little taller than his high school days.
Murasakibara Atsushi (Kuroko no Basket)
Having tall players in BasketBall is an unspoken rule that has been carried out for a long time. Thus, it is given that an anime that focuses on BasketBall will give its viewers many tall characters. Although Kuroko no Basket is full of tall characters, the character that is the tallest is Murasakibara Atsushi.
His height increased impressively. When he used to play for the team Teiko, he was 6 ft and 1 inch tall. However, currently playing for the team Yosen, he measures up to 6 feet and 10 inches. Just like Lev, Atsushi is very tall for a 16 year old. He is thus the largest player in Kuroko no Basket, giving him an upper-hand in most of the games. For his height he appears to be very intimidating, especially to the opponent teams. However, he is usually seen as someone who likes to joke in serious times as well as can appear childish.
Gyomei Himejima (Demon Slayer)
Demon Slayer is an anime that has gained rapid popularity since it first came out. It introduces us to many characters who are powerful as well as the characters who grow stronger as the story progresses. This anime introduces us to 10 such characters known as the Hashiras. These Hashiras are a team of the strongest Demon Slayers. Among these, the tallest character is Gyomei Himejima.
He is the tallest Hashira measuring up to 7 feet and 2.5 inches. He is taller and more muscular than most of the characters in the series making him look very intimidating. However, he surprisingly is very soft-hearted and sensitive. He usually appears to be carrying around his prayer beads and is often seen praying.
Ira Gamagoori (Kill la Kill)
Kill-la-Kill is an anime that combines superhuman powers with school life themes. It doesn’t only introduce us to a brave and powerful protagonist but also takes us through an intriguing story which is mysterious enough to get its viewers hooked. Although many characters are pretty strong in the anime, a character than stands out for being physically strong is Ira Gamagoori.
He is a part of the Elite Four from the student’s council and is considered to be the impenetrable shield of Satsuki, the president of the student’s council. Ira also happens to be the tallest member in the entire anime series with the height of more than 8 feet. His powers are superhuman strength which compliments him height really well.
Koro Sensei (Assassination Classroom)
Assassination Classroom is an anime that gives us warm feelings with each episode and leaves us with tears towards the end. It introduces us to many different characters that many viewers can relate too. Howver, the character loved by everyone in the anime definitely is Koro Sensei.
This sensei is a giant Octopus-like creature who has superhuman speed. He is 9 feet and 10 inches tall which is considerably taller than his human form. Although being very tall, he can be considered as one of the gentle giants, as he is very sensitive to the opinions of his students about him.
Sajin Komamura (Bleach)
Bleach is an anime that takes us on epic journeys from the human world to the spirit world. Being strong in this universe is something that is a must. The anime consists of strong captains, one of them being Sajin Komamura. Sajin is the Captain of the Seventh Division. The Werewolf character measures up to 9 ft. and 5.5 inches, he can be really intimidating. Interestingly, after receiving a new armour that included a helmet, Sajin began to look more intimidating and taller. He can even shift his appearance to look similar to a human.
Escanor (Seven Deadly Sins)
Seven Deadly Sins is an anime that introduces us to a fantasy world of Kings, Knights as well as monsters. This anime also introduces us to seven interesting protagonists with each character given the name of a deadly sin. Escanor is known as the Lion’s Sin of Pride. He is an intriguing character as his usual self is very different from his transformation into Pride. Escanor first appeared to viewers as a timid man owning a bar. With low confidence and a small body, he feared most of the things going on around him.
However, once it is Day and he transforms into Pride, his powerful presence could be felt through the screen as the timid man of 5 feet and 5 inches turns into a bright knight measuring up to 10 feet and 8 inches. Not only this but Escanor is considered to be the strongest of all the other sins. This gives him a lot of confidence in his abilities to the point where he remains calm even in life and death situations.
Diane (Seven Deadly Sins)
Another sin from Seven Deadly Sins is Diane, who is the tallest among the other group members. As she comes from the Giant race, she measures up to 30 feet tall. Sadly, she envies the people of human height which is an irony considering she is the Serpent’s Sin of Envy. She wishes to turn into a normal girl someday and with the help of Merlin, the sin of Gluttony, she is able to do so. In the end, she is able to shrink and grow whenever needed. Her human height measures up to 5 feet and 5 inches.
Eren’s Founding Titan (Attack on Titan)
When Attack on Titan was first introduced, we all thought that there is no titan bigger than the Colossal Titan. Little did we know that we were very wrong about this until very recently. Attack on Titan is almost coming to an end and with this different kinds of titans have been revealed to us, including Eren’s Founding Titan.
Eren’s Founding Titan is something terrifying to look at yet cool. Being made up of only bones and Eren’s head, his Founding Titan roughly measures more than 700 feet. This titan is the largest and tallest Titan we have come across so far. If this titan can stand on its two feet, which seems impossible, the measurements will exceed 1000 feet.
Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
Next up on the list is an interesting character as its height isn’t measured in Feets but in Light Years! Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is probably the tallest character among all the other anime characters. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is a mecha anime that introduces us to a dystopian world that consists of many battles involving robots. The Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann was first introduced to us in the final battle in the series’ film “The Lights in the Sky are Stars”. It is also known as STTGL. This huge mecha energy was formed by combining other Tengen Toppa Gunmen.
The exact measurements of STTGL’s height is difficult to pinpoint. However, we know that it exceeds the length of the observable universe which is 93 billion light-years across. STTGL’s height is, thus, considered to be somewhere between 300 to 550 light-years tall.
