Can you even think of shooting a bull’s-eye with a pistol?!
Well, these anime gunmen have trained for years with their guns and can shoot any target with their eyes closed.
Some of them get this skill from the family, while the others have trained hard to achieve the same level.
They just need to pull the trigger and we’re sure there will be a lot of dead bodies showing up.
With that said, today we’ll be discussing the top 10 most powerful anime gun users.
10. Riza Hawkeye (Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood)
Riza is a lieutenant in the Amestrian State Military and the personal bodyguard of Roy Mustang.
Normally she is seen as a calm and collected woman in her early 20s but when it comes to head-to-head battles, she can be seen as a skilled gun user.
One of her most popular and memorable quotes is “I like guns because unlike swords and knives you don’t have to feel your victim die”
She has shown major skill with pistols and snipers in the Ishval Civil War.
She is also an expert firearm specialist, so going to a gunfight with her is sure going to be a bad call!
Next up in our list we have a sniper.
9. Usopp (One Piece)
Though he appeared weak at first, he later gained popularity as an expert marksman who inherited the skill from his father ‘Yasopp’ who was also a talented marksman.
His main equipment is his slingshot but Usopp is an expert when it comes to naval artillery as well.
His marksmanship was well showcased when he managed to hit Spandam and other Marines from a far distance.
Usopp’s calculations about trajectory angles helped Luffy’s crew in their battle with sugar.
He is also called the king of Snipers and you can see how serious that name is.
8. Yoko Littner (Guren Lagann)
kamina and simon first find her while facing the beastmen army.
And from the very first episode itself, she shows an impeccable skill with her gun.
She’s also a very good sniper and she showed her sniper skills during many of the previous battles.
One of the most memorable battles which showcased her marksmanship is the battle with ‘Viral’ where she managed to shoot even while they were moving at a fast speed in the air.
In the final episodes of the anime, she even pilots the large Dayakkaiser and manages to attack many anti-spiral ships.
She definitely deserves a spot on this list.
7. Kiritsugu Emiya (Fate Zero)
He is a skilled gunman and experienced assassin, a strong mage and an even stronger marksman.
With his skill matching his utilitarian ideologies, you can say he’s the most dangerous one to handle in our list.
Kiritsugu was trained by the marksman Natalya Kaminski.
While also providing him with the special bullet type called the origin bullet which can destroy any barrier a mage created.
Kiritsugu is not only a skilled marksman but he’s also very talented and cunning.
The latter is seen in his battle with ‘kirei’ where he uses his popular time alter ability which can stop time while predicting his opponent’s moves at the same time.
He defeated Kirei with the help of his gun and his ability which makes him a skilled mage with pistols.
The AMIA family is surely a force to be reckoned.
With enough about adults, how about a kid who can surpass them all?
6. Death The Kid (Soul Eater)
Not only does this kid have two women who could transform into guns but he is also the son of a Shinigami.
You heard that right, he wields two gun twins Liz Thompson and Patty Thompson who can transform into guns at his command.
He is also a very skilled Gun Kata where you have to utilize both your guns and physical strength in a close combat gun battle.
This was greatly shown in his battle with ‘Crona’ where he used both his guns and movements to attack him.
The kid is also shown to have superhuman powers inherited from his father which is also a boost for his skills.
His guns can even be upgraded for a much cooler and stronger attack.
He also has a very calm and judgmental demeanor, which makes him ideal for a leader as well.
With his gun and martial arts skills, he is a definite addition to this list.
If Kiritsugu is the dangerous man in this list then here’s the most dangerous woman!
5. Revy (Black Lagoon)
Grown with the dangerous crowd of Roanapur, you have to admit she has gone a little over the edge.
But if you want to survive in the crime filled city, you definitely have to be good with your guns.
And not only Revy is good with her gun, she can yield two of them and hit multiple targets at the same time.
Since she has displayed her skill in almost every gunfight she has been in, we cannot count them.
But one of her best is her duel with Roberta at the shipping docks.
In this battle, she moves rapidly from one place to the other while shooting her opponent and this is one of the best shootouts in anime history!
This battle also showed us how skilled Revy is with her gun when it comes to duels.
Trust me on this one, Revy’s one of the most dangerous women in the world.
So we talked about gunmen and women, but how about a vampire?
4. Alucard (Hellsing)
Not only is he good with his pistols, he’s also immortal which makes him one of the toughest opponents any gunman can face.
Wearing red glasses and a red coat, this gunman has superhuman strength endurance and even quick reflexes in gun battles.
One of the first battles that showed his skill with his guns was his battle against Luke Valentine.
His battle with Anderson can be considered as one of the most dangerous battles of all time.
In the battle both of the men engage each other with their weapons and Alucard shows exceptional skill with his guns by managing to hit Anderson with almost every bullet he shoots.
It also showed the peak of his abilities as a gunman, with his two pistols he hides behind his coats this vampire is a bad sign if he approaches any gun battle.
How about a gunman from the Wild West?
3. Daisuke Jigen (Lupin the third)
Being a skilled gunman and marksman, this man is lupin’s right-hand man when it comes to all of his heists.
He can draw his pistol faster than anyone, deflect an oncoming bullet with a bullet and even shoot skeet with a handgun.
One of his most common tricks is to throw an object into the air to take the attention of the enemy and then take the advantage of that moment and attack the enemy.
He is also very cunning when it comes to gun battles and he always wins the battles either from his skill or from some trick he pulls out.
Jigen is also very knowledgeable when it comes to firearms but his favorite model is model 19.
Just like Revy, Jigen has done one to one firearm battles with many opponents, so it’s difficult to choose what the best is.
Similar to most gunman here, Jigen also has a rough composure so he probably wouldn’t tell you even if you asked.
