We’ve all felt it. The moments when you see a male character that exceeds all expectations and you think for a moment, I wish he was my older brother. It could be because of his protectiveness, cool exterior amidst chaos, general badassery, or maybe just his extreme moe-moe levels. Whether you’re a boy wanting a cool older brother or a girl wanting a protective nii-san, there’s the perfect older brother for you in this collective list!
1. Itachi Uchiha, brother of Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto):
If you have seen Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, you know why Itachi Uchiha is #1 in the list. He’s no doubt the best brother in anime universe! He sacrificed every single thing in order to save his little brother, was marked as a murderer and hated by whole village. And when he thought that Sasuke’s in danger, he showed up in Konoha, just so people know that Sasuke’s big brother Itachi Uchiha is still alive.
2. Lelouch Lamperouge, brother of Nunnally Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Seriously this anime is a masterpiece! Lelouch did everything he could for his blind sister before the series end (won’t spoil more, watch it on your own!).
3. Edward Elric, brother of Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood):
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is arguably the best anime ever created in the history! Edward Elric is an ideal brother, he will not think even once and sacrifice his life in order to save his brother’s life. Just to bind his little brother’s soul to an armor, he sacrificed his right arm without thinking anything. He truly values his little brother, Alphonse Elric, and would do anything to get his real body back.
4. Killua Zoldyck, brother of Alluka Zoldyck (Hunter X Hunter 2011):
Hunter X Hunter is the best shounen anime with Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood! It was only in the last arc of HxH when Killua and Alluka’s relations were shown. Nobody likes Alluka because of her mysterious ability which changes her face and may result in death of innocent people and she doesn’t has any control over it and so she’s locked up at her home. But his brother Killua is the only person who accepts her and wants to be with her and thus takes her out of the lockup on a journey with him. He really loved her and acknowledges her innocence.
5. Portgas D. Ace, brother of Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece):
Ace’s love for Luffy was more than anything in the whole world, even though they weren’t really blood-brothers but without any hesitation, Ace sacrificed his life in order to save his little brother Luffy, from Akainu Sakazuki’s deadly blow!
6. Kamina, brother of Simon (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann):
Seriously this anime is EPIC! When it comes to being a bro, nobody can surpass Kamina (though they are not blood related, they still accepted each other that way). And no force in the UNIVERSE can truly separate them. You know that I am serious if you have seen this show!
7. Shunsuke Otosaka, brother of Yuu and Ayumi (Charlotte):
For saving his younger brother and sister, and many more teenagers, he devoted his entire life risking it even after loosing his eyesight. It’s a little complicated to explain it here but you must watch this anime!
8. Sora, brother of Shiro (No Game No Life):
Sora and Shiro, together they make blank, an undefeated duo when it comes to any game. Literally ANY! They support each other’s weaknesses and can’t live without each other. Together, they can defeat the entire world. You know what I am saying if you have seen this anime!
9. Elfman Strauss, brother of Lisanna and Mirajane (Fairy Tail):
This overprotective manly guy can do anything for his sisters. Literally anything!
10. Gohan, brother of Goten (Dragon Ball Z):
Gohan taught Goten how to fly and in order to save Goten, Gohan will definitely sacrifice his life if he needed to.
11. Ichigo Kurosaki, brother of Karin Kurosaki (Bleach):
At a very young age, Ichigo heard his father saying his name means “to protect one thing,” which instilled in him a desire to protect his mother. When his sisters were born, he began attending a dojo for the sake of protecting them.
12. Rin Okumura, brother of Yukio Okumura (Ao No Exorcist):
He always protected Yukio from bullies and encouraged him to chase his dream. and he is really overprotective when it comes to Yukio. Even though he is the elder he looks more younger than Yukio.
