There is something about a Demon Hunter that is just plain awesome. Maybe it’s the attitude or maybe it’s because hunters are just plain badass. Their are hundreds of demon hunters but it takes something special to be on this list. Take a look at the “TOP 10Most Ridiculously Over the Top Demon Hunters of All Time”.

10. Samanosuke Akechi from the Omnimusha series.

Samanosuke is a badass Samurai from the Omnimusha video game series. He was born in the year 1535, during Japan’s Sengoku Period. Don’t judge him because he’s from the medieval era. His mission is to protect the world from demons and to overthrow the evil Nobuanaga. He’s claimed as the greatest heroes during the Oni/Genma war and of the deadliest demon hunters in history.

Check out Samanosuke in action:

9. Minato Namikaze (4th Hokage) from Naruto

Minato is a powerful ninja from the popular Japanese manga, “Naruto”. Minato makes this list because he defeated the “Nine tailed Demon Fox”, the strongest demon in Naruto history. Known as the 4th Hokage and the leader of the Hidden Leaf Clan, there isn’t a ninja in the Naruto Universe who doesn’t know about the “Yellow Flash”.

8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy Anne Summers is “the Slayer”, one in a long line of young women chosen by fate to battle evil forces. This mystic calling endows her with dramatically increased physical strength, as well as endurance, agility, ease of healing, intuition, and a limited degree of clairvoyance, usually in the form of prophetic dreams. Although she usually slays vampires she is known to slay demons in her free time.

7. Vampire Hunter D

D is a dhampir, the half-breed child of a vampire father and human mother, therefore he makes the ideal demon/vampire hunter. He is renowned for his consummate skill and unearthly grace, but feared and despised for his mixed lineage: born of both races but belonging to neither. Often underestimated by his opponents, D has surprising power and resourcefulness, possessing most of the strengths and only mild levels of vampiric weaknesses. D does not suffer from vampiric weaknesses usual to dhampirs, possessing an imposing supernatural aura to his opponents and godlike reflexes surpassing even vampires.

6. Dante from Devil May Cry Series

Another half breed, Dante is a mercenary dedicated to exterminating demons, a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother. He is the son of Sparda, a demon of great power that rebelled against the demon emperor and defeated his army. As a result of his demonic heritage he possesses numerous superhuman abilities which he uses in combination with a variety of weapons to accomplish his goals.

5. Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden Series

Single handed overthrowing an empire, slaying legendary demons and winning world-class fighting tournaments, Ryu Hayabusa holds the #5 spot on our list. Ryu is a “super-ninja” with insane ninja skills. He also wields the legendary Dragon sword and is a proud member of the Hayabusa Clan. His assassination list includes, Greater Fiend Doku, Emperor Vigoor and many other monsters. Like many others on this list he has prevented the destruction of the world numerous times.

4. Rachel from the Ninja Gaiden Series

Another character from the Ninja Gaiden Series, Rachel is a scantily clad Fiend Hunter in the Vigoor Empire. She searches for her sister Alma, who was turned into a Greater Fiend by Doku. She dispatches Fiends with the aid of her Warhammer (a fauchard-like weapon), the Peluda Tail (a whip), and her Blades of Ouroborus sorcery. She became a Fiend Hunter to kill her corrupted twin sister Alma. However, she finds herself unable to do so when given the opportunity.

She kills demons in high heel stilettos…nuf said.

3. Illidan Stormrage from World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade

Illidan Stormrage, known as The Betrayer, is currently the self-proclaimed Lord of Outland, ruling from the Black Temple. He was born a night elf, and as stated by Maiev Shadowsong, is now “neither demon nor night elf, but something more”. Once an unusually gifted Sorcerer, the extent of his powers today are difficult to classify, due to his powers increasing in large bursts as a Demon Hunter, Sorcerer, and having absorbed the powers of the Skull of Gul’dan.

2.  Alexander Anderson from Hellsing Anime

Alexander Anderson is a character from the manga/anime Hellsing. Acting as both an antagonist and anti-hero he is a warrior priest or paladin monster slayer who works for the Iscariot Organization.  Alex is one of the rare humans who has faced off against Alucard and lived to tell the tale.

1. Jezzerie Jaden from Shadow Hunter

#1 on our list is Jezzerie Jaden, a young, orphaned, beautiful woman, attempting to make a life for herself in the big city.  As she grapples with mundane problems like making rent and a creepy manager at work, something deeper brews: a nagging suspicion that her life is not her own. Seeking answers (not to mention extra cash) she enrolls in a past life regression experiment which seems to ignite visions of a demonic past that no one can explain. Shadow Hunter is the story of a provocative super-heroine who survives a brush with death only to find herself fighting the legions of hell for her very soul.  She has an incredibly sexy and brutal attitude and definitely “Over the Top”.
