Anime characters similar to Batman

anime characters like Batman

Robert Pattinson was very impressive in the recently released Batman movie. He portrayed the characteristics of Batman very well. Batman fans, as well as those who weren’t into Batman, have praised the new film. What’s even better for fans, though, is that there are many other characters like The Batman in various forms of media fighting crime for their own reasons. Here we will examine ten characters from anime that are very similar to Batman.

Batman is a character created by DC Comics. Bruce Wayne, a philanthropist, is the identity behind the superhero. After witnessing the murders of both his parents, Bruce decided to get rid of the crimes in Gotham by fighting the criminals himself. Bruce Wayne decided to undergo heavy physical training and broaden his perspective on many topics, especially science. He learned many skills over the years and took on the identity of Batman, someone who works in the dark and is feared by criminals. Bruce Wayne is supported by his trusty butler Alfred. He also meets other people who become part of the Batman family. In general, he is known as a superhero without any powers. Relying on pure physical strength and cool technological equipment, he fights crime and is known as the vigilante protector of Gotham City.

Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto series)

Sasuke Uchiha is a character from the Naruto series who has come a long way from what he was. Like Batman, he too witnessed the death of his parents at a very young age. However, unlike Batman, who decided to get rid of all the criminals in Gotham, Sasuke wanted to kill his brother, the murderer of his parents. At this Sasuk took the wrong road to take revenge.

But as he grew up, he eventually changed his perception of things and decided to travel around to protect his village from outside dangers. Sasuke is called the “Shadow Hokage”, which means he protects his village from the shadows. This is an aspect that is shared between Batman and Sasuk. Another thing they share is intelligence. They are both quick with their thinking and can solve problems faster than the others.

Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Another character who seeks works from the shadows is Scar from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist. He is an Ishvalan and wants revenge for both his murdered clan and his family. However, for his purpose, he kills state alchemists, turning him into a serial killer and wanted criminal. In the end, he becomes a reliable ally of the protagonists. His help makes things a bit easier for the main characters, as he is adept at combat and also good at analytical thinking. Scar became someone who resembled ‘Batman’ to his own people as he went on a killing spree for revenge, as well as those left of his tribe.

Stain (My Hero Academia)

Another character that can be compared to Batman, as well as Scar, is Stain from the anime My Hero Academia. Stain’s philosophy is talked about throughout the anime. He was known as a “Hero-Killer” because he wanted to kill all the fake people who only became heroes for fame and money. He recognizes All Might as the one true hero alive. However, he doesn’t like to kill people who don’t fit into his “fake hero” category. Stain lived like a vigilante. Although what he did was not in accordance with the laws, he was still known as someone who was “cool.” This remained a primary concern in the anime. He single-handedly clears the city of fake and corrupt heroes, turning him into an anime character similar to Batman.


Hey (darker than black)

Darker than Black is another interesting anime based on binge-watching. It introduces us to the main character Hei. Hei has the ability to manipulate electricity and is part of The Syndicate, a group of assassins. He is literally known as the “Chinese Electric Batman”. As the name suggests, he carries out assassination missions in a dark and mysterious way using his analytical mind. Taking on different personas and going undercover is also something he has to do to complete his missions.

Hei also known as Chinese Electric Batman

Daisuke Kambe (Fugou Keiji Balance: UNLIMITED)

Batman and Daisuke Kambe share the fact that they are both crime-fighting billionaires. With wealthy backgrounds, both Batman and Daisuk bear the brunt of the loss of their families. Daisuke Kambe, although he has a lot of money, joins the Metropolitan Police Department as a detective. There he meets his role Haru Kato, and together they solve cases.

However, Daisuk’s intent to join the detectives runs much deeper than meets the eye. He wanted to reopen the case of his mother’s death and uncover the secrets of his family. Together with the friends he has made, some good technology and his unlimited bank balance, he tries to get to the heart of the mystery.

L (Obituary)

When it comes to wanting to fight crimes with pure intelligence, you think of L. L is a character from the anime Death Note. He is interested in the new murders going on by the person by the name of “Kira”. Finding the identity behind “Kira” was something L was closest to in the anime. His intelligence to solve mysterious clues and identify suspects can be compared to that of Batman. Initially, L was someone who worked behind the scenes with a fake voice and never showed his face. ‘Kira’ also acknowledged that L was someone to be afraid of, although he had unfailing plans to hide his identity. Speaking of “Kira”, the next character on this list is definitely closer to Batman from the same anime.

Light Yagami (Death Note)

While L can be compared to Batman in terms of intelligence and being perfect at identifying suspects, Light Yagami from Death Note is the closest person to Batman. This protagonist takes the form of “Kira” to rid the world of evil. As mentioned above, he never slipped when it came to protecting his identity. Light Yagami is also on a par with Batman when it comes to intelligence. So he’s the only one who can keep up with L in the first half of the anime.

However, his broad sense of justice causes him to take the law into his own hands, ultimately making him a serial killer. In short, if Bruce Wayne didn’t cooperate with the police, took extreme measures to hide his identity, and was narcissistic enough to call himself the “god of justice,” Light Yagami would be the perfect Batman of the anime world. As an aside, Bruce would be intrigued and love how the Death Note works.

Himura Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin)

Rurouni Kenshin is a 90s anime that is still loved by many fans. It gives us a good story and some good characters. Himura Kenshin is the main character of the anime. When Kenshin was born, his parents gave him the name Shinta. However, as a child, he witnessed the murder of his parents by some mountain thieves, something it takes to look very much like Batman. The only survivor, he was picked up by an experienced swordsman who taught him to use a sword and named him Kenshin Himura.

Kenshin Himura

As a swordsman, Kenshin was highly skilled, making him one of the deadliest assassins of his time. However, he decided to atone for his sins of killing people by traveling through Japan for ten years. He then sat down and started protecting the people of the city by using his sword to fight criminals. So Kenshin is a vigilante with no superpowers that protect the city they live in, just like The Batman.

Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

Attack on Titan is an anime ending soon. This anime has gained a lot of fans for its intriguing storyline. While you can somehow compare the main character, Eren, to Batman’s, Levi Ackerman seems more like a Batman in their world. Levi Akerman comes from a dark background that forced him to fend for himself as a child. As a young boy he led a delinquent life. However, in the right setting and with the right equipment, he began to put his skills to good use to protect the place where he lived.

Levi Ackerman

This new life gave Levi a new philosophy to live by and also gave him many comrades to rely on. Whenever he lost one of his comrades, he accepted the loss, avenging their deaths by killing titans. He feels compassion for and cares about his fellows. However, he also chooses to be strong and stoic when it comes to handling most things. Another aspect that makes Levi and Batman similar is that they are feared among their enemies. Just like Batman has Joker, Levi has Zeke.

Vash the Stampede (Trigun)

The last character very similar to Batman is the main character of the anime Trigun. The main character of this 90s anime is Vash, the stampede. Also known as the “Human Typhoon”, he is usually surrounded by chaos and carries a huge bounty on his head. However, it is known that Vash is not really a villain but is someone who fights criminals and prevents crimes as a vigilante.

Vash, the stampede

Not only this, but he also goes against and fights large, corrupt institutions. Compared to Batman, Vash is more on the childish and easygoing side. However, he can get lonely. The philosophy of Vash, which is also his catchphrase, is that “The world is made of love and peace”. Although he fights criminals, he refuses to kill anyone. Overall, he is one of the widely known vigilantes in the anime world.
