Top 10 Most Badass Male Anime Characters

In short: we're looking at people with a badass aditude, not strength or combat skills. I'm sorry, but Goku is only badass when the situation cals for it. He's dumb as a brick, voraciously loves food, and kneels before his wife, it really doesn't matter how strong he is, badassness simply isn't his nature. Vegeta, on the other hand...
Okay, I know folks like Luffy and Natsu have their badass moments, but for this list, I'd like to focus on THE most badass among the anime characters. The kind that makes you intimidated by sitting next to them. The kind that solves prblems by wrecking stuff and succeeding in it! The kind that makes bad guys go "Holy snap, it's that guy!"

    Also, I'll just say this again: we are not evaluating combat capabilities, but aditude. Being strong is not the same as being a badass, although there's an overlap in most cases. If a character has a thing for flowers, teddy bears and warm milk, it doesn't matter if he can blow up a planet or kill a god, he's not badass enough for this list.
    For the record, do we really need to say "if you don't know him, look him up"? Because that's pretty much the default thing to do when you see a new name on a list like this and wanna see why someone put him there.
    if you dont know who he is look up accelerator vs on youtube and just watch his fight scenes he is the definition of badass

    I would like to apologize for adding Gajeel here, the show's so full of badass characters it's really difficult to pick a winner that fits the definition the best. The problem is that most of them display toughness through combat skills and strength, while this list should focus more on aditude. Anyway, I think I found a better candidate to represe

    The "let's make tea after a fight" guy? The shopkeeper? With Zaraki in the same show, are you serious?
