Sometimes, he gets cranky, which further provides comic relief. His companions are usually Oolong, Turtle and Launch. His home is Kame House, a shack on a small isolated island which serves as a gathering place for his friends.

7. Toshin Raizen – 3000+ Age ( Anime: Yu Yu Hakusho )

5. Zeno Zoldyck – 67 Age ( Anime: Hunter x Hunter )

While Zeno is a witty old man, his advancing age has not dampened his quick thinking and speed in battle. Despite his senior citizen status, he is a very formidable tactician and a skilled user of Nen. He remains calm and collected at all times and displays a unique sense of pragmatism.

Zeno Zoldyck

He takes satisfaction in being an efficient assassin and that seems to be his only conceit. Killing is just a job to him and emotion doesn’t enter into it. He only risks his life if there is a reward to be gained. Zeno has high hopes on Killua, that is why he trusts the boy’s ability.

4. Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryūsai 1000+ Age ( Anime: Bleach )

Yamamoto is the oldest captain in the Gotei 13. He has the appearance of an old man with red eyes, a very long white beard, and long eyebrows.


There are many scars on his torso and head, the two most prominent being a pair of long, perpendicular scars above his right eye, left by his battle with his lieutenant. After his brief confrontation with Sōsuke Aizen, Yamamoto lost his left arm. He wears the standard Shinigami uniform, but its size is greatly exaggerated.

He drapes his Haori over his back instead of actually wearing it. Despite his old and frail appearance, he has a very muscular body which he only reveals when he goes to battle, something which Shunsui Kyōraku claims is not seen too often.

Underneath his eye patch is “The Ultimate Eye”, or his regular eye with the Ouroboros mark in place of the pupil and cornea.
