Kuudere characters don’t seem like ideal love interests at first, either in the real world or anime. They are austere characters with cold countenances and a stoic personalities. But beneath the surface often lies a person who feels deeply.
They may struggle with hiding their emotions, or merely show them in a way that’s different from most. Kuudere characters are worth spending the time getting to know. The best ones have traits that make them ideal husbandos. They’re reserved and thoughtful, they never fly off the handle, and their introspective natures make them careful and considerate people, especially with the ones they love.
10 Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)
Most bishonen characters have kuudere personalities, and Sesshomaru in Inuyasha is the king of bishonen characters. Fans often ship him with Kagura, who is as powerful as she is self-contained and cerebral. Though Sesshomaru doesn’t end up with Kagura, their similar personalities gave them a kind of nuanced understanding for one another.
Fans love a stoic, icy prince like Sesshomaru, because when his ice finally cracks, it’s always a huge emotional moment. Sesshomaru doesn’t care about many people. Those he does care about bring out the best, most protective and respectful side of him.
9 Hagi (Blood+)
Hagi is Saya’s chevalier in Blood+. Though he serves Saya, he has a mind of his own, and he doesn’t compromise his morals for others. He has a frosty, judgmental exterior, but he occasionally lets people into his inner world.
Hagi is talented as well as handsome, from wielding a set of daggers to playing the cello. He’s also incredibly helpful – he carries Saya’s sword for her in his cello case. And though he’s a man of few words, those words are careful and well-thought-out.
8 Caesar Zeppeli (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Caesar Zeppeli comes from a long line of suave and powerful gents in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. His knowing smirk is masterful, and he can be incredibly composed as he meticulously pricks Joseph’s temper. Caesar is adept, but he’s not as composed as other kuudere characters, though he has the looks and romantic grace part down.
Caesar keeps people at an arm’s length, but he has his moments when his emotions get the better of him. Once he lets someone into his inner circle, it’s easy for them to fall in love with him. Joseph started off being extremely annoyed by Caesar, and by the end, he treasured him.
7 Kiyoka Kudou (My Happy Marriage)
Kiyoka and Miyo have a rocky start in My Happy Marriage. Miyo was already psyched out when she first met her husband because not only is he a virtual stranger to her, he has a terrible reputation for being unkind and unceremoniously dumping his fiancées.
Miyo discovers that Kiyoka is anything but what the rumors imply. Her family meant to show their displeasure with her one last time by giving her away to an unfeeling husband, but they ended up doing her a favor. Not only is Kiyoka considerate, he’s patient and loyal, which is exactly the kind of husband that Miyo needs.
6 Kunzite (Sailor Moon)
With his long white hair, towering height, and stern brow, Kunzite’s icy looks set him apart as the main kuudere in Sailor Moon. He’s the most powerful Shitennou, and he doesn’t show up until later in the season, operating from the sidelines, so there’s a level of mystery to him compared to the others. He’s also the most composed of the Dark Kingdom villains.
In the original anime, Zoisite gets his best side. He’s first shown comforting Zoisite. Kunzite loves him so much that showing his emotions isn’t a chore. He’s entirely wrapped around Zoisite’s pinky finger.
5 D (Vampire Hunter D)
D hardly speaks in Vampire Hunter D, much less shows his emotions. He’s a mournful character in many ways, he has a tragic past and a bleak feeling about the future. He’s lonely because he’s a half-vampire who detests how most vampires are wantonly violent, and he can’t fully trust his bloodlust around people.
D never gets a romance because he wanders from town to town, never quite fitting in. But in the first Vampire Hunter D movie, Left Hand calls him out on the tender feelings he could have for Doris. If D could allow himself to fall in love, he would be a lovely partner.
4 Claude (I’m The Villainess, So I’m Taming The Final Boss)
Especially in the beginning of I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss, Claude doesn’t express himself much and rather shows his emotions through nature’s elements. Since his emotions have such power, he needs to be composed and keep them and his realm under control. The demon prince’s control is a huge theme in I’m the Villainess.
Claude’s expected to be brutal and uncaring, but though he’s quiet, he’s incredibly honorable in deed and word. The might of his powers was the excuse for nullifying his inheritance. But though he’s a distant figure, he proves himself to be careful and kind at every turn.
3 Ka Koushun (Raven Of The Inner Palace)
Ka Koushun is so reserved and polite in Raven of the Inner Palace that his careful flirtations are always delightfully surprising. And though he’s strict about politeness, he’s not afraid to bend the rules a little. He’s not supposed to get to know his Raven Consort, but he can’t seem to keep away from her.
Ka Koushun makes for an astute leader because he knows how to school his expressions and act quietly. And what starts out as a favor that the kind Summer King asks of Liu Shouxue quickly develops into a genuine friendship. Kuudere characters are always great in a friends-to-romance arc.
2 Himuro (The Ice Guy And His Cool Female Colleague)
Himuro comes by his frosty persona honestly in The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague. His personality and powers derive from his relation to the Yuki-Onna, the snow yokai. His emotions heat his heart up too much and trigger his ice powers, making him a literal and metaphorical kuudere.
Himuro ends up with another self-contained, introverted person, Fuyutsuki, who takes his nature in stride. Though, liking her so much makes him particularly flustered. They have a gentle and sincere romance that’s very emotionally open despite their reserved natures.
1 Ashitaka (Princess Mononoke)
Ashitaka often lets other people talk themselves into showing their cards in Princess Mononoke. He’s an excellent listener both because he’s respectful, and because he’s smart about gathering information about people’s motives. Even though they’ve only just met him, everyone in Irontown respects him for his strength and composure.
Ashitaka also has to control his emotions carefully because being lax about it will make his curse grow. As a kuudere, Ashitaka leads with compassion, and he never speaks without thinking it through twice. But though he’s quiet, he’s very in touch with his emotions and isn’t afraid to act on them when the time’s right.
