Top 10 Anime Girl with Silver Hair

Silver hair is associated with ageing, but in the anime world, characters practically can rock any hair color. Silver hair color is seen as a cool hair color to have, and the characters tend to have a cool, emotionless, and intelligent personality too. Nowadays, it seems to be a trend in real life as well, but the upkeep seems too difficult especially if you are blessed with dark hair. What’s there not to like about anime girls with silver hair? We bet there are many of you, like us, who are highly attracted to anime girls with silver hair, so we have compiled this list for you:

10. Laura Bodewig from IS: Infinite Stratos

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan. 2011 - Apr. 2011

Laura Bodewig is initially an antagonist in the story, but she later joins forces with Ichika Orimura. At the IS Academy, she is a first year transfer student who is also the IS Representative Candidate of Germany. As she was a super soldier created to be a weapon, she lacks the social skills of the average person.

Laura Bodewig has a few unique qualities about her looks. Aside from the beautiful silver locks, her eyes are red and yellow, of which the latter is covered with a black eyepatch. Ichika had mentioned that Laura’s eyes are like gemstones. Among all the heroines, Laura is the shortest and most petite, which makes her the most fun-sized of all! Her petiteness gives her a doll-like appearance.


9. Nao Tomori from Charlotte

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Jul. 2015 - Sep. 2015

Nao Tomori is the Student Council President of Hoshinoumi Academy. Her brother, Kazuki Tomori, has the supernatural ability to make air vibrate. The siblings are raised by a single mother who have them transferred to a boarding school run by scientists who are researching about people with supernatural powers.

This girl with silver hair is one of the main characters in Charlotte. Nao is a joyful girl who innocently enjoys using the camcorder to record proof of others’ supernatural abilities. Like her brother, she also has a supernatural ability, which is to become invisible to one person.


8. Tomoyo Sakagami from Clannad

  • Episodes: 23
  • Aired: Oct. 2008 - Mar. 2008

Tomoyo looks like sweet girl with a gentle disposition but as the saying goes, do not judge a book by its cover. Tomoyo has a reputation for being violent and beating people up. She beats up some delinquents from her previous school which surprises Youhei, who then challenges her. Tomoyo defeats Youhei easily which shows that she is a tough fighter.

It is always more refreshing to see a female character who is physically strong as opposed to one that is a damsel in distress. Her strength is frequently used as a gag in the anime. Sunohara often challenges Tomoyo for silly reasons, and then loses against her. We love strong female characters, so Tomoyo is easily one of our favorite anime girls with silver hair!


7. Eucliwood Hellscythe from Kore wa Zombie desu ka? (Is This a Zombie?)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan. 2011 - Mar. 2011

Eucliwood Hellscythe is a necromancer. A boy named Ayumu Aikawa was killed by a serial killer. She then brought the boy back to life as a zombie, and they have lived together ever since. She has the very powerful ability to alter reality by making her words come true. Eucliwood can make a person die just by saying the word ‘die’, for example.

Eucliwood Hellscythe looks like the quiet, cool type. She does not talk but communicates with others by writing on her notepad. The reason being that her powers are uncontrollable and dangerous. Besides refraining herself from speaking, she also wears armour to suppress her power. She appears emotionless but she is really a kind-hearted person. Since she is such a formidable character, it’s hard not to like this silver-haired girl!


6. Suigintou from Rozen Maiden

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Oct. 2004 - Dec. 2004

Suigintou seems like a gothic Lolita doll, and that’s because she is one. She is shown to have a sadistic personality with the strongest desire to win the Alice game as she wants to get her “Father” to notice her. Like Pinocchio, her “Father” is a dollmaker. Suigintou is not afraid to use whatever means in order to obtain victory in the game, even if the methods are brutal.

Forget Barbie, Suigintou is the coolest and most beautiful doll there is! Her red eyes compliment her silver hair which give her a slightly creepy yet striking appearance. Her dark outfit also contrasts strongly with her silver hair. She stands out from the rest of the dolls in the anime as she is the only one who has wings.


5. Koneko Toujou from High School DxD

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan. 2012 - Mar. 2012

In High School DxD, Koneko Toujou is a Nekomata. Nekomata are youkai which are cat-like. They look like humans for the most part, except for their feline ears and two tails. Now that sounds like a common design but Koneko is also a Nekoshou which is a rare and strongest variant of Nekomata.

In her Nekomata form, Koneko looks cute with her white cat ears and tails which complement her beautiful silver hair. She is also capable to temporarily make herself grow older through the Shirone mode. Her name reflects who she is, as Koneko means ‘cat’, and she is certainly as cute as the creature!


4. Isla from Plastic Memories

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: 2015 - Jun. 2015

Like many other anime girls with silver hair, Isla seems to be cold and emotionless. That’s because she is a Giftia, a type of robot said to be the most accurate imitation of human. The main difference between Giftia and humans is the lifespan. Unlike humans who can usually live until 70 years old, Giftia has a maximum lifespan of 81,920 hours. If a Giftia is not deactivated before their lifespan ends, it would become a “Wanderer” which acts on instinct and not memories, so they are often violent.

Isla is innocent and does not seem to display much emotions, but she can get jealous easily when it comes to Tsukasa Mizugaki, who is her partner. Isla can be seen sporting two pigtails and wearing a white uniform with white boots. She is quite the fashionista, therefore making her one of our top favorite silver-haired anime girls!


3. Kyouko Kirigiri from Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei The Animation

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Jul. 2013 - Sep. 2013

Kyouko Kirigiri has a stoic personality and can be seen to be calm in most situations which would horrify others. It’s cool to see a character who is so level-headed and would not scream her head off in at the sight of a dead body. Unlike many other characters we have shown so far in this list, Kyouko is not the cute, petite type of character. She is tall and exudes an aura of elegance and sophistication. Her pale complexion matches her silver hair beautifully.

Kyouko is very mysterious due to her amnesia so there is not much known about her. However, she is later revealed to have a cool family background! If you are interested in the identity of this mysterious silver-haired girl, you should totally check out Danganronpa.


2. Fremy Speeddraw from Rokka no Yuusha (Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jul. 2015 - Sep. 2015

Fremy Speeddraw has a fragile and weak appearance, as if she has anemia. However, this is anime so she should not be mistaken as a weakling. She is one of the Braves of the Six Flowers which is a powerful group of 6 people selected by the Goddess of Fate to defeat the evil entity known as Majin. Therefore, you can expect Fremy to blow you away with her power!

This frail beauty is half-human and half-Kyouma. Kyouma is a type of monster, and thankfully, Fremy looks like a human instead of an ugly monster. Fremy has a cold and mistrustful personality but deep within, her original personality is kind and caring. You need intelligence to pull off the cold and powerful personality, and as expected, Fremy is highly intelligent. Therefore, this nearly perfect being is among our favorite anime girls with silver hair!


1. Kanade Tachibana from Angel Beats

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Apr. 2010 - Jun. 2010

Kanade Tachibana is a student at Afterlife school and she is nicknamed Angel due to her unique abilities. She is not only skilled in hand-to-hand combat, but she has supernatural abilities which would be activated by voice. Among her abilities include being able to create a clone and create an invisible shield which is strong enough to deflect bullets. Besides that, she is the School’s Council President who is in charge of making sure that all the students are able to cope with their personal issues.

Kanade is our top choice of anime girl with silver hair, mainly because of her beautiful silver hair. Yeah yeah, we get it, all the others have beautiful silver hair too, but Kanade’s hair seems to be slightly tinted with blue, so her hair color is often mistaken as blue in the Light Novel. She is truly an angel, don’t you think so?
