Have the Highest IQ, These are the 10 Smartest & Genius Anime Characters
Discussing who is the smartest anime character is certainly very interesting. It should be noted, in anime, not all characters or main characters are depicted as figures with super powers, but there are also characters who are described as having super intelligent brains.
Like humans, not all of these smartest characters use their intelligence to help others, but there are also those who use their intelligence for personal gain. So, who is the smartest anime character? Here’s the answer!
Discussing the smartest anime character certainly cannot be separated from the character of Light Yagami. The main character in the Death Note series, which was banned worldwide, is known as a hard worker and clever in solving various problems. You can see one of Light Yagami’s intelligence in one of the scenes.
You certainly still remember how Light Yagami was still able to commit murder even though he was being watched by surveillance cameras installed in his house. In order to get the names of the officials to be executed, Light hides a small tv behind a packet of potato chips. Smart isn’t it?
Still from Death Note, another smartest character who is no less intelligent than Light Yagami is L Lawliet. This eccentric character who works as an international private detective is known to be skilled in handling cases that the national government failed to resolve. Even though they are both geniuses, L and Light Yagami are not friendly, they are even hostile to each other. In the Death Note series, L tries to prove that Light is actually the killer Kira.
The next smartest anime character that is no less popular is Lelouch. This smartest character is a former Britannia prince who uses his intelligence to lead a rebellion movement. In a movement known as The Black Knights, Lelouch changed his name to Zero.
The purpose of using the name Zero is to destroy the Britannia kingdom led by his father. You could say Lelouch is a person with multiple personalities, when he became Lelouch he was very relaxed and easy to get along with. But when he became Zero his attitude changed 180 degrees to be cold and did not hesitate to sacrifice others as long as his goal was achieved.
Despite having above average intelligence, Shikamaru rarely uses his intelligence. This is inseparable from his lazy and cowardly nature. This smartest anime character spends most of his time with unimportant work, such as playing games or just watching the clouds go by. When faced with a conflict, then this team 10 member Ninja will use his intelligence to find a solution. Unlike Naruto, who is categorized as the dumbest character, Shikamaru Nara is a genius anime character but pretends to be stupid.
I don’t know what status should be given to this detective with the highest IQ. You could say, Conan is the smartest, most popular, most handsome anime character who sometimes pretends to be stupid. Compared to other smartest characters, Conan’s intelligence has successfully captivated the hearts of anime lovers. About what Conan’s real name is and how his body changed like a child, you certainly already understand.
In each episode, you can see Conan’s intelligence as he manages to uncover and solve various criminal cases, especially murders that refer to one name. Interestingly, in revealing case by case, it is not uncommon for this other form of Shinichi Kudo to provide many quotes or wise sentences. Examples like this, “There are many reasons to kill people, but there is no need to help someone.”.
Shiro is the protagonist in the No Game No Life series who has a high level of intelligence. This can be seen when he is able to memorize a number of knowledge quickly and precisely. In addition, Shiro also has the ability to speak many languages which he learned in just 5 minutes.
What’s even more astonishing, even so smart, this character who is also known as a chess master is able to defeat a computer program designed to defeat the chess master himself.
Besides Shiro, another character in the No Game No Life series who also has god-level intelligence is Sora. Similar to Shiro, this smartest character also has a pretty dark past, which was left by his parents when he was little. That bad experience then made Sora indifferent to life and only interested in games. Sora’s intelligence is not only limited to games, as a friendly person Sora is also a strategist who is fluent in speaking and easily learns something in a short time.
You must know who is the strongest human in the Attack on Titan series. Yes, he is Levi Ackerman. Born into a super poor family, Levi grew up in an environment full of freedom and a life without rules. In such an environment, strength is paramount. Since his mother died, Levi was adopted by Kenny who is none other than his mother’s older brother. Since being raised by Kenny, Levi is taught ways to survive, one of which is killing. Armed with Kenny’s upbringing, Levi has succeeded in becoming a reliable Titan killer. Not even a few Titans he has killed alone.
Kakashi Hatake is one of the main characters as well as a genius ninja in the Naruto series. Hatake’s intelligence was not obtained instantly, but he got it from his hobby of reading. The reading that he likes is the Icha Icha Paradise series by Jiraiya. As the 6th Hokage, Hatake has a very iconic stance. Among them are Copy Jutsu, Kamui Raikiri, Susanoo, Kamui, Shiden and Raikiri which rely on speed to kill enemies.
Near is the true successor of Lawliet who was raised in an orphanage for gifted children. After Lawliet’s death, Near begins to participate in investigating the Kira case. After getting enough evidence he then brought the evidence to the US President and he was entrusted with being the head provider for Kira.
As the true successor of Lawliet, Near is a smart and intelligent figure, he is able to solve complex puzzles and problems. It’s just that his appearance and his childish nature and pretending to be stupid make other people doubt his abilities.
