From rainbow colored hair to cat ears and tails, anime grapheme designs has never actually cared for being realistic.
So that’s how nosotros make it at our crossroad: horns and cute girls.
There’s a running trend on what a horned character is – they’re unremarkably supernatural, quite often powerful, and too quite frequently NSFW. Varies on the anime but you know the drill.
Devil girls, dragon girls and alien girls alike… I’ll be ranking the best anime girls with horns from across every fandom y’all can imagine. And hopefully there’due south a few new ones hither for you too!
Aria the Scarlet Bullet
Apologies: I know that those aren’t real horns – they’re horn shaped hairclips.
But honestly she barely ever takes them off so who’s counting? (#xv that’southward who’s counting)
The daughter of a Japanese mother and a British father descended from the Sherlock Holmes, Aria follows in the footsteps of her ancestors equally a Butei – an international qualification for armed police.
To top it all off, she’s also a member of the British peerage with the title of Matriarch and holdings of her antecedent’s land in Baskerville manor.
Her beautiful figure is the upshot of stunted growth due to a bullet with mystical properties that elongates a person’south life, which is lodged in her back.
Her short stature and great detective skills has earned her the nickname “Lacking Holmes”.
Il is a fairy-god mother sort of figure.
I of many Guardian Characters (Shugo Chara) from which the series drives its proper name.
A tiny chibi demon figure, Il (who’s name comes from the English “devil”) loves chaos and conflict.
She hates peaceful situations, maxim that she’ll become bored soon enough.
Alongside El (from angel), Il is one of two Guardians for Utau whichi s a high school idol and rival to the prove’s primary graphic symbol, Amu. Her horns are only ane of many vivid designs.
Everyday With a Monster Girl (Monster Musume)
Lilith is a minor character from Monster Musume, an anime where monsters of all sorts lodge at the house of Kimihito Kurusu.
Lilith is a bottom demon who shows upwardly a couple of times.
Bottom because her species does non fully mature, and instead looks similar a kid throughout their whole lives.
Sadistic, masochistic, and cunning, Lilith knows how to use this to her reward.
She pretends to be a cute child to become what she wants – only to then backstab when most convenient.
Great to share a beer with but watch out for the puppy dog optics!
Aries is a shy, reserved, and well-mannered Celestial Spirit who is companion to Lucy Heartfilia.
Before becoming 1 of Lucy’s spirits, Aries was endemic past the black hearted Karen Lilicia who would crush her and use her as a shield.
Though prissy both in spirit and demeanor, she is still a deadly and expert fighter with the ability to conjure up massive amounts of pink wool every bit a weapon.
Those horns are just a prissy added touch.
Welcome to Demon School Iruma-Kun!
Valac Clara is an incredibly energetic demon girl at Barbirus High.
Though friendly and outgoing, most students find Clara too quirky and her energy besides much to continue up with.
The nicer students avert her, and the meaner students apply her past pretending to be her friends to use her magical pockets.
In a classic anime style, those magical pockets give unlimited snacks and drinks. Very anime if y’all ask me.
Kittenish, imaginative, and completely naïve to a error. She has an official erotic ranking (something they apparently do at the school) of 2%. A newborn baby has a ranking of 3% so make of that what you lot will.
The World Simply God Knows
The World Only God Knows is set up in a timeline in which Hell has been remade.

Equally with any political modify, there will always be stragglers who pine for the onetime organisation.

Big-headed, crafty, fell and intelligent best describes her.
Not to mention Nora’s tactics for finding spirits have included torture, hypnotization, and even infiltrating into the higher ranks of Vintage to interruption it from within.
Sengoku Drove is certainly the summit of weeb anime.
It is based on the Sengoku Jidai, a bloody hundred year period of countless civil war where shogunates and clans fought for ability over the emperor in Tokyo.
Sengoku Drove turns all the generals into anime girls and sends them to the modern era.
In this weird anachronistic weeb dystopia we find Bokuden Tsukahara.
She is based after the famous swordsman who fought fiercely for the Kashima clan, a firm of the Japanese Royal Throne. And yeah you are seeing her right: she’south a small-scale purple haired girl with small white horns coming out of her head.
She’southward withal an astounding swordsman and definitely a force to exist reckoned with…but if Sengoku Collection shows annihilation, information technology’s that nothing in the wold is really sacred.
Yet gonna watch information technology though.
Lucy is a diclonius, an development of the human race that has horns protruding out of their caput.
This also comes with psychokinetic abilities and invisible arms capable of massive destruction.
Orphaned as a child, Lucy was bullied and traumatized growing upward. When angered, immature Lucy would lose control of her vectors leading multiple massacres in her wake.
Unable to understand humanity’s fear and without ever having felt dear, she become a recluse and a casual killer.
That is, until she lost her retentiveness and became Nyu, a sweet daughter who wants nothing more than a peaceful life. She has quite a graphic symbol history.

Q is the nugget of Sōichirō Mikuni, a calm veteran Entre who has three avails.
Now Q is a immature girl figure with long horns, and she seems out of identify compared to Mikuni’s much stronger other assets.
But there’s more than meets the heart – Q is sentient unlike other assets and chooses to fight for Mikuni.
My Hero Academia
Mina Ashido is an outgoing and tomboyish hero in preparation.
Although looking very much like a stereotypical alien, her physicality is the result of her Quirk.
Aside from her horns, this quirk too gave her pink pare and yellow-on-black eyes.
She has the ability to expel acrid from her body which she can employ as a weapon, a shield, and even as transport if she ejects it from her feet.
However, when off-duty she’s like any other high school daughter. She swoons over romance, can’t report for her life, and is a great dancer.
Cheerful and like shooting fish in a barrel-going, Mina is the life of the party. With horns.
Pantyhose and Stocking with Garterbelt
Scanty is one of the two demon sisters, dual-antagonists of the American looking anime Pantyhose and Stocking with Garterbelt.
Along with her younger sister Kneesocks, the demon sisters are ironically
with rules in dissimilarity to their archnemeses, the fallen angels Panty and Stockings who revel in freedom to the point of anarchy.
Foil to the extroverted Panty, Scanty is designed similarly with long flowing hair, a killer torso, and a thirst for excitement.
Along with Kneesocks, Scanty plots the downfall of the anarchy sisters and plans for an eventual subjugation of mankind nether their strict disciplinarian regime. Fun!
If only she could stay that mode.

Children, now called Parasites(how pleasant) are created synthetically for the sole purpose of operating giant mecha called FRANXX as boy-girl pairs against the Klaxosaur.
Born of hybrid man and Klaxosaur claret, Cypher Two has naturally pink horns and scarlet rims effectually her eyes. Along with a pretty nice outfit that actually matches the horns!

Her race of horned aliens came to take over World. Only in the spirit of sportsmanship, allowed a random earthling to battle them for command…in a game of tag.
If Lum’s horns can be grabbed inside 10 days, the aliens will allow Earth alive. What a game.
The unlucky person chosen was Ataru Morobushi, a comically perverted 17-year-former.
Ataru succeeds by using a contraption to take hold of Lum’s bra. And in an effort to protect her modesty she covers her chest just to take Ataru take hold of her horns.
“I’m getting married!” he cries for his girlfriend, Shinobu had promised to if he saved the Globe.
“Well if you lot insist” replies the beautiful alien invader.
And so begins ane of the greatest slapstick anime of the 1980s.
Satania is best girl and no one is taking that throne from her. No, no question.
I don’t intendance if the others were objectively improve characters. And this may be personal bias hither but if you’ve e’er seen Gabriel Dropout I think you’d understand.
