Top 5 Anime Characters with Scars

Guts with his Scar against his nose

Guts (Berserk)

Guts have numerous scars after many battles. However, his most distinct scar is the one across his nose. Guts received this scar during a training session with his former father figure Gambino. During this session, Gambino becomes frustrated after Guts manages to cut his cheek. In his rage, he gives Guts the cut across his nose. 

Shoto Todoroki (My Hero Academia)

Shoto has a large burn scar across his left side of his face. He received this scar from his abused mother. Todoroki’s father Endeavor abused his mother resulting in her developing an intense hatred of Endeavor. In a fit of insanity, she burned Shoto by pouring a kettle of boiling water. She immediately tried to soothe Shoto’s pain with her ice Quirk, however, Shoto seem to be permanently scarred. 

Shanks (One Piece)

Shanks’s trademark scar across his left eye was given to him by Blackbeard. When and why he received this scar is currently unknown. The scar is a set of three vertically linear lines that cross over his left eye. However, the eye itself isn’t harmed. 

Kenpachi (Bleach)

Kenpachi has many distinctive traits. His eye patch, long black hair, and his hairless eyebrows. In addition to all that he has a long, thin scar that runs down his face. Located on the left side, the scar doesn’t cut across the eye. It was given to him by the former Kenpachi and Gotei 13 Captain, Retsu Unohana. He was just a child when she gave it to him. 

Vast the Stampede (Trigun)

Vast the Stampede has too many scars to detail. The series doesn’t necessarily tell us when they all happen. Vast’s body is full of deep scars, metal plates that appear to be bolted on, and cuts. In the anime, it is suggested that these scars are all the result if Vast’s unwillingness to kill his opponents.

  1. Those are great choices. Some other interesting anime characters with some scars would be Gene Starwind from Outlaw Star, Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist, and Claw from Kimba the White Lion (AKA the character that Scar from The Lion King is a shameless clone of).

    1. Thank you. I should re-watch Outlaw Star I barely remember it. I considered Scar but he didn’t make the list. I need to watch Kimba the White Lion.

      1. You’re certainly welcome. It’s cool since it’s your list and all. Gene is an underrated character for this list since he technically has “villain” scars despite being a hero. I was a bit surprised not to see Scar (FMA) on there. Yeah, you should definitely check out Kimba at some point.
