You might not believe in fate, but you probably believe in luck. Aced a test? Lucky! Flunked it? Better luck next time. Didn't even get to take it? Tough luck.

Of course, there's unlucky, and there's really unlucky. Some anime characters take being unlucky to such an extreme, it might as well be considered an art form. Luck is definitely not on the side of these 10 extremely unlucky anime characters.

Reika Ko

Sousei no Aquarion (Genesis of Aquarion)

Reika Ko Genesis of Aquarion
Reika is so unlucky, that others avoid contact with her. She doesn't blame them, either - she believes she's responsible for her boyfriend's coma. Pretty harsh..

Touma Kamijou

Toaru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index)

Touma Kamijou A certain magical index
It's pretty awesome to have a special power that negates all other special powers, including magic, psychic, and the divine. It's not as awesome when your own super power also drains you of your good luck.


Aa! Megami-sama! (Ah! My Goddess)

Senbei Ah My Goddess
According to Senbei, there is a finite amount of happiness in the world. By that thinking, in order to stay happy, he has to take happiness away from others. Good thing Senbei is a miniature god of disaster and poverty. All he has to do is give everyone around him back luck, and their happiness is transferred to him. Easy enough.



Tsunade Naruto
Tsunade loves to gamble. Too bad for her, she has impossibly terrible luck with it - so much so that she's known by people as "The Legendary Sucker." Ouch! Tsunade has even learned how to use her bad luck in her favor: any time she's winning big, she prepares for the worst and places her bets on things she does not want. Knowing when you're about to lose can be useful information too!

Himawari Kunogi

Himawari is a kind girl who doesn't have bad luck herself. Instead, a mysterious force surrounds her, and causes bad luck to all those around her. This bad luck has given her friends trouble in the past, and has even caused the death of her grandmother. That's a pretty good reason to keep your distance from people you love.


Dragon Ball Z

Yamcha Dragon Ball Z
Yamcha is so unlucky, that he's spawned an entire meme of "bad luck Yamcha" moments. He continuously fails at tournaments, winds up in the wrong place at the wrong time, and (very old, but still SPOILER) finally meets his end within moments by tiny aliens and becomes the laughingstock of the internet. Poor guy just can't catch a break.

Ken Kaneki

Tokyo Ghoul

Ken Kaneki Tokyo Ghoul
One of Ken's worst moments of bad luck happened right at the beginning of the series. All he wanted was a nice date with a nice girl. Instead, that first date completely changes who he is, turning him into a monster feared by humans. From there, just when you think he's in the clear his luck just gets worse and worse.

Practically every character

Anne Happy♪

An Ruri Botan Ann Happy
Bad luck is the entire premise of the series, and the girls definitely deliver. Every girl has some type of misfortune: Ruri is unlucky in love, Botan has terrible health, and An just has perpetually bad luck. At least their misfortunes give them something in common to bond over...
