Thanks to anime, we've come to not despise the archetypal perv, but actually like these nosebleeding deviants. Anime perverts are a staple in seemingly every franchise, be it a television show, OVA or film. Those exhibiting lecherous behavior can be young or old like Tomoki Sakurai and Happosai, innocent or malicious like Izayoi Sakamaki and Hisoka Morow, as well as cute or disturbing like Misaki Kamiigusa and Danichirou Sanka. Follow along, as we explore the most popular perverted characters in anime!
What makes Tomoko Kuroki stand out among the many anime perverts out there are her numerous attempts (emphasis on numerous attempts) at keeping her lecherous ways hidden. Most of her fantasies are just that, mere figments of her imagination, like the many dubious "encounters" she has with the boys at school. These "daydreams" aren't just reserved for guys, though. They also revolve around her best friend, Yuu Naruse, where Tomoko fantasizes about groping her.
While Tomoko's attempts at being a covert pervert should make her seem innocent, her rather peculiar relationship with her brother, Tomoki, blows that possibility out of the water. She has oftentimes asked rather strange and disturbing requests of him that would make anyone with a sibling uncomfortable, seeing as they normally border on the incestuous. But we still love her anyways.
Most of Izayoi Sakamaki's perverted antics revolve around Black Rabbit. Hardly a moment goes by where he doesn't joke about her body (like saying her "legs" belong to him) or isn't proclaiming his want to claim her virginity. One of his many perverted pranks involves him misusing the power of his copy of the Helmet of Hades, which, when worn, turns the wearer invisible. While donning this powerful artifact, he tickled Black Rabbit in a rather inappropriate way before she smacked him on the head with her signature paper fan, calling him out on his perverted actions. It doesn't help that Izayoi has even said that he's a vulgar and savage person as well as a hopeless hedonist.
What's hilarious, however, is that it's quite possible that he respects a character named Shiroyasha because they're both perverts. Of course, his high opinion of her could be due to her strength, but for the sake of this article, we're going to say it's because they're both perverted.

The first scene of "Great Teacher Onizuka" expertly captures Eikichi Onizuka's perverted nature. We first find him taking advantage of a rather strategically ingenious spot if one's hoping to peek up a girl's skirt.
Eikichi's problem is that he's just highly "enamored" with high school girls. In fact, that's why he becomes a teacher-in-training to begin with: he hopes to get a class full of attractive, nubile girls. But we should feel sorry for him. He's still a virgin. Just try not to take his fetish of smelling fresh panties too seriously. It's a sickness! However, his overt attraction to beautiful women can make him a complete jerk, seeing as he'll hit on a "friend's" girlfriend, even if her boyfriend is right there!

Kimura is much like Eikichi in that he became a teacher because of his love for high school girls. The big difference, however, is that Kimura is married. Despite his marital status, Kimura comes up with as many excuses as possible to, as he calls it, "observe" his female students. The number of places where Kimura has peeked on them is quite extensive, ranging from the school pool to the nurses office, where he watches them being measured and weighed.
While Kimura has a "love" for all his female students, he does have his favorites, such as Kaori and Kagura. In fact, he once asked Kagura how her physical went and also told her, in English, that he liked her because she was wearing gym shorts he particularly enjoyed on her. Gross!

If you're a fan of Sanji, then you should probably thank Nami because, without her, he probably wouldn't have even agreed to join Luffy's crew (and therefore wouldn't have been a major character in the show). The fact that Sanji claims that the reason why he did so is 98.72% because of Nami (which is already such a strangely specific number) proves this.
His infatuation with Nami has almost cost the lives of his crew on numerous occasions, which goes to show how extreme his perverted "malady" can be. It shouldn't be knocked off as something curable. Heck, Sanji even enjoys it whenever Nami resorts to violence to make him stop harassing her! That aside, one of their greatest scenes occurred after Trafalgar Law used his devil fruit powers to switch their bodies. Imagine Sanji's delight about being in Nami's body!
But enough about Nami. She isn't the only target of his perversion. In fact, his lust isn't just confined to the human race. Females of all types of species have been subjected to his "advances," including mermaids and minks. Of course, Sanji's lecherous way of life was only worsened after he spent two years on Momoiro Island, seeing as there weren't any women there. But that's a whole other story.

Hisoka's deviant behavior is different than most anime perverts in that he gets his jollies from fighting (and getting beat down) by strong foes. Of course, while sadomasochism as a fetish isn't anything new, Hisoka's specific tastes revolve around his insatiable thirst for blood. In fact, near-death experiences (as well as the chance of fighting strong Nen users) are literally "orgasmic" experiences for him.
Hisoka is just as delighted (or should we say, excited) whenever he comes across people who could very well become great fighters one day. In fact, he goes so far as to regard potential foes as toys. Unfortunately, Hisoka doesn't appear to discriminate what "toys" he'll play with in terms of age. The same can be said of their gender. Anyone and everyone is fair game ... just as long as they're strong.
Danichirou Sanka is probably one of the most disturbing anime perverts, period. Why? He's an incestuous pedophile. Danichirou's entire perversion revolves around his biological daughter, Rea, because she reminds him of his first wife. So, of course, he would be attracted to her (that was sarcasm, by the way). What's worse (if you could get any worse than that), Danichirou completely ignores his second wife as a result and utterly refuses to sleep with her.
Some of the many creepy things Danichirou does is take pictures of Rea, which, would be normal, if it weren't for the fact that he's "attracted" to her and that he also takes nude photos of Rea on her birthday because it's his way of recording her growth. Any of Rea's friends who find her father's behavior odd and try to convince her of this are eliminated from their lives. Danichirou's excuse, as he tells Rea, is that he's the only thing in the world that she ever needs. Dude ...

Issei Hyoudou is known for fantasizing about women, giving him the rather appropriate reputation of being somewhat of a creeper at Kuoh Academy. That being said, he is a hard worker. Issei's studious nature, combined with him being a perv, has led to a few things that many girls regret, namely the invention of a number of inappropriate techniques.
One such technique is the Dress Break (the literal translation being Clothes Collapse), which gives Issei the ability to strip the clothes off any girl who he comes in contact with. Another favorite is Bilingual (the literal translation being Breast Translation). With this technique, Issei can literally talk to breasts. While this allows Issei to learn what his opponents' plans and strategies are, there is, obviously, an underling reason why he chose that particular part of the body to talk to. It should be noted that Bilingual has been banned in Rating Games, due to the complaints from various participants, all of them females.
Kuroko Shirai's feelings for (and especially actions towards) Misaki Mikoto basically disprove Shakespeare's "Love is blind" saying because Kuroko's eyes are partially what have made her perverted. Kuroko would absolutely love to see Misaki naked. Plus, Kuroko genuinely loves Misaki.
Kuroko is always on the lookout for the chance to get intimate with Misaka, and her actions not only give her the reputation as being a perv, but even lead to her getting electroshocked. Kuroko also has an album named "Onee-sama's secret," which includes pictures of Misaki. Aww!
Even though Kon is a Mod-Soul that inhabits a stuffed lion, making it quite difficult for him to fully act on his perverted fantasies, you don't have to feel sorry for him. He takes full advantage of being a plushy toy because girls have a tendency of hugging cute things, especially stuffed animals who talk in cute voices. And when girls hug things, that action normally involves bringing whatever they're hugging in direct contact with their upper torso i.e. their chest region. The fact that Kon has an affinity for large breasts makes "hugging" perfect. Seeing as he's also small, his whole body ends up being crammed in between breasts when hugged. This is a wonderful place to Kon, one that he calls the "Valley of the Gods."
The fact that Orihime has a rather impressive bosom, has made her the main target of Kon's "affection." His attempts to descend into her rather deep valley has led him to being smacked, stomped on, thrown, punched and more, on more than one occasion. But this doesn't seem to bother him. In fact, one time after Rukia stepped on him, Kon was able to look up her skirt as she did so, exclaiming "Nice angle!"
Tomoki Sakurai is a resourceful perv. Peepholes are child's play. He's customized a highly intricate pipeline that gets the job done ... and done so more effectively. But Tomoki's perverted intuitiveness isn't just limited to voyeur-enhancing instruments. Once, he was also able to to dive into a pool filled with girls and tie them all up before they could do anything about it.
But he isn't just a genius pervert. Tomoki appears to be blessed with super-human-like abilities, which he exploits whenever he can. For example, he seems to be completely impervious to kicks, punches and other forms of "attacks" aimed at his genitals. He's also been known to shoot lasers from that same region (but more so in the manga).
In a move that attempts to make his perverted nature seem cute and endearing, Tomoki is normally shown in chibi form whenever he's doing something perverted. He's still a world-class pervert though.
Misaki Kamiigusa is the ultimate Genki Girl, mixed with a little dose of inappropriate. Or, maybe, we should say a "big" dose of inappropriate? Misaki essentially just has an extremely energetic personality with an insanely wild imagination that always seems to lead to something perverted.
Part of her perverse sense of humor stems from her dream of becoming a house wife. In fact, within the first few minutes of "Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo"'s debut episode, Misaki goes on a rather hilarious "tirade" after she wakes up in Kanda's room. The very first thing she says once she stretches is "I wanna get married when I grow up!" This is then quickly followed by Misaki playing out this fantasy by pretending that she and Kanda are married and that he just got home from work. "Welcome home, dear, you're home early," she says excitedly as she runs towards him with tremendous speed, soon placing her head seductively on his shoulder. Misaki continues: "Would you like dinner? A bath?" She pauses. Then, more alluringly, coos, "Mine body?" Of course, Kanda tries to brush all of this off by reminding her that they don't live in the 16th century (and not married). But, of course, none of this registers with Misaki. Instead, she runs off to a batch of DVDs, going on and on about how they can play a game where every time he beats her, she could take off a piece of clothing.
After he escapes her "little fanatical world" by going outside, Misaki leans out of his window (which is located on a busy street) and announces to the whole world proudly that she looks so good naked before exclaiming "Come! Journey with me to the Garden of Earth Delights!"
And this all occurs before she gets the chance to talk to the man of her dreams ... Mitaka Jin ...
Jiraiya doesn't just do perverted things; he talks about them. It's something he's quite proud of and therefore brags about incessantly, boasting about how successful his exploits have been whenever he has the chance. In fact, he's taking this to such an extreme that he's openly declared himself as being a "super-pervert" of which there is no equal.
Jiraiya's particular favorite pervy activity is spying on women while they're bathing. Again, this is a pastime, which he makes sure to slip into any conversation he's in, even priding himself on the many times he's been caught in the act. It's due to his openness that makes the following so strange: he dislikes it whenever Naruto Uzumaki calls him the "Perverted Hermit" or "Pervy Sage" in public.
Speaking of Naruto, Jiraiya especially enjoys Naruto's Sexy No Jutsu (Sexy Technique), whereby Naruto becomes a rather attractive version of himself as a woman. In fact, Jiraiya wanted nothing to do with Naruto when he first met him, but after Naruto used Sexy no Jutsu, Jiraiya quickly changed his mind. In fact, Sexy No Jutsu is something Jiraiya encourages Naruto to do as much as possible.
The way Jiraiya has documented his deviant behavior is also important to note, seeing as it's not only quite creative but hilarious. The fruits of his "research" come in the form of adult novels called Icha Icha. We want to read them!
What makes Muten-Roshi (better known by many as Master Roshi) such a prominent figure in lecherous culture is that he was essentially the "gateway" perv for kids around the world, exposing innocent children everywhere to the realm of anime perverts. He's the one who introduced us to the nosebleeding phenomenon and what it means. He's why every perverted old man in real life is nicknamed Master Roshi.
Throughout his extensive career, this lecherous pervert has become widely known for watching Wide-Thigh Aerobics and reading a good dirty magazine whenever he has the chance. Speaking of his precious mags, in "Dragon Ball," whenever Goku and Krillin accidentally splashed them with water while firing Kamehameha waves into the ocean, Master Roshi would get quite angry and tell them off.
Since the very beginning, Master Roshi has never given up on his deviant lifestyle - from the early days of "Dragon Ball" when he first accepted Bulma's bribe to give her a Dragon Ball if she showed him her panties (which came with its own surprise), to hitting on Maron and Android 18 in "Dragon Ball Z," to reading his perverted magazines in "Dragon Ball Super." He's a legend.

Happosai is yet another perverted old man. In fact, his nicknames prove the extent of his lecherous behavior. He's garnered such titles as the endearing "Happy, Dirty Old Man" and the highly detailed description "Pervert." His favorite pastimes include - in addition to normal things like martial arts and cooking sweet potatoes - groping, peeking, and his trademark, stealing women's lingerie.
During his panty raids, Happosai's storage method of choice is a giant sack that, on a good day, is filled with an excessive amount of lady's undergarments, one that can become over twice his size! On such occasions, he can be heard yelling out "Dai ryo ja!" which means "What a haul!" Whenever he's on a raid, there's sure to be a stampede of angry women not too far off.
Probably due to the fact that he's basically been a perv his whole life, Happosai's obsession has seemingly evolved into a potential health hazard if not adhered to. His "condition" makes it so touching a woman is akin to breathing, whereby he could succumb to severe withdrawals if he's unable to touch them. During this stage of his illness, he experiences such symptoms like extreme weakness and the inability to walk. In fact, after being cursed with an odor that repelled women, he almost died. For the sake of your health, Happosai, touch away! Touch away!
