We previously placed the spotlight on some of the most exciting anime characters who use fire-based powers. Today, we’d like to focus on the opposite. Here are some of the coolest characters from anime who manipulate and make the most out of their ice powers!
Mariella (Black Clover)
Formerly a powerful assassin from the deadly Diamond Kingdom, Mariella was actually introduced in the series to hunt deserters Fanzell Kruger and Dominante Code.
It’s a good thing though that this cool assassin met Asta and his fellow Black Bull magicians. Able to control ice magic with accuracy and ease, Mariella’s strongest edge would be her great balance of using physical assassin attacks and ice manipulation. This is one girl who you wouldn’t want to get on her bad side!
Tokiya Mikagami (Flame of Recca)
Go old school and learn just how cool this swordsman is! Mikagami, in contrast to Recca, makes use of ice powers care of his ice sword, the Ensui. By mastering the many attacks from this weapon, Mikagami combines expert swordsmanship with some amazing ice moves. Some of his battles in the series are probably the best when it comes to ice-based powers, proving just how cool he is (even during the 90’s!)!
Esdeath (Akame ga Kill!)
As the deadly antagonist from the bloody “Akame ga Kill!” series, Esdeath’s best ice traits would be her intelligence and viciousness when making use of her cold powers. By using the powerful Teigu, the Demon’s Extract, Esdeath can actuall mold ice of virtually nothing.
This makes her a serious threat, considering her creativity of what to mold ice (in some cases, she’d mold an entire army!). Additionally, her freezing powers do not only focus on ice or water – time itself can be frozen, allowing her to keep on attacking without having to consider dodging or the like. Esdeath is a legitimate threat who really knows how to use her powers to the fullest!
Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail)
We all know Natsu’s fiery and excellent power manipulation in Fairy Tail! And on the other end of the spectrum is his best buddy, the almost naked, buff, and really dangerous Ice-Make magician, Gray Fullbuster! Often using his ice powers to make melee weapons, his combination of physical attacks and cold magic manipulation can turn the tide in most battles.
Additionally, Gray Fullbuster is excellent in teamwork. By combining his ice attacks with some of his fellow guild mates, this is one ice magician you’d definitely want to have on your side always!
Although the victim of having limited exposure (he was one of the major, and tragic, villains in the series), Naruto’s Haku essentially showcased just how expansive and versatilte jutsus are in this universe. Able to tap into his deadly Ice Release bloodline technique, Haku can create thousands of ice attacks that’ll definitely frustrate anyone after him or Zabusa.
A pity that he died, but Haku’s excellent ice prowess proved that the Naruto universe has many excellent powers to make use of!
Hitsugaya is a great example of never judging a book by its cover. The small captain of the Soul Society’s 10th division, Hitsugaya’s strongest trait would be his mastery of his Bankai. In this Daiguren Hyorinmaru, this deadly swordsman makes use of a strong ice armor that boosts his offensive and defensive traits. Given his tactical prowess as well, Toshiro Hitsugaya is someone who you should never underestimate.
As a formal admiral, Aokiji is one of the strongest individuals in the massive One Piece universe. Able to fully control the Hie Hie no Mi, a devil fruit that focuses on ice manipulation, Aokiji can create ice attacks, sculptures, and even replaced a body part of his to ice!
Virtually indestructible even when shattered, Aokiji can also freeze entire bodies of water – a threat considering that devil fruit users are useless when in the water! Scary and smart, Aokiji seems to always be several steps further when it comes to planning and attacking foes!
Another character from One Piece, the amazing and musically-inclined Brooks actually should be given emphasis on how excellent a fighter he is. Aside from making use of his umbrella sword (which, surprisingly so, can match against the outstanding Zoro!), Brooks also makes use of ice attacks whenever he stabs and slashes enemies.
Given his zombie or skeleton element, the cold attacks can actually take down some of the fiercest foes Luffy and his friends encounter!
Another old school anime, Toya of the demon troupe is one of the best examples on how ice power is manipulated and seen during the 90’s. Combining his ninjutsu training, Toya makes use of ice attacks that both confuse and catch his enemies off guard. He can even create an ice blade that’ll stab his enemies!
Further training with Master Genkai allows Toyo to boost his powers – by the last arc of the series, this ninja can freeze entire rivers of enemies with ease!
Known as the Freezing Alchemist, this anti-military’s best trait would be his mastery of manipulating both water and ice. Combined with his martial arts physical skills and cold powers, this alchemist can truly turn the tide with his mere appearance. Additionally, as a trump card, Isaac can manipulate even his own blood for freezing attacks – doing so can truly take his foes off guard for surprise attacks!
As one of My Hero Academia’s most popular (and strongest) characters, Shoto’s lineage as being the sone of the strong Endeavor does mean he has a lot of baggage to carry! In fact, his quirk, which combines both flame and ice powers (which he has both inherited from his parent), prove that he is a deadly force to be reckoned with.
At first, Shoto didn’t want to make use of his flame attacks, mainly because of his bad blood with his power. But by focusing on his unique traits. this amazing and budding hero can actually create “cold fire”. This form, which combines the best of his parents’ powers, showcases Shoto’s unique strength and perseverance!
