What the title says. They dont have to be the most powerful or most badass, just your favorite in your opinion

These would probably be my top 5:
  1. Twilight Suzuka (Outlaw Star)
  2. Rurouni Kenshin
  3. Jin (Samurai Champloo)
  4. Ishikawa Goemon (Lupin the 3rd)
  5. Rin Kamishiro (Maburaho)


The last one isn't necessarily a samurai but she is a swordswoman who dresses in a traditional style and follows the old code.

I don't think I have a favorite really, but I have a special spot for Ogami Itto from the Lone Wolf and Cub manga. When I was little I watched the movie adaptions.

@Haofan123: 
1.- Samurai Jack (I don´t know why, but I find him awesome)
2.- Kenshin  Himura (he´s just great)
3.- Jubei Yagyuu (she´s the sexiest samurai there is)
4.- Mugen (like him better than Jin, sorry to disagree @PenguinDust)
5.- Amidamaru

@mrassh0le: I know you´ll hate me for this but I have to say it, I cant stand Afro samurai, thats one of the few characters that really annoys me.

Heh-heh, yeah I like him too but I'm a little more reserved in real life so Jin appeals to me more on a personal level.  Both are great, though.  Now, that they're bringing back Rurouni Kenshin and Gintama has already returned, I kind of wish someone would do a 2nd season of Samurai Champloo.  Of course, composer Nujabes past away last year so it wouldn't be the same, but I'd still like to see the further adventures of those three.  

Speaking of Gintama, I'm kind of surprised no one said Gintoki Sakata.  I haven't seen the series yet, so he's not on my list.  I should rectify that soon. 

@Jinbeifan1: I think Zoro counts.  He trained in a dojo from a master and has many of the mannerisms usually associated with samurai/ronin.

Gintoki isn't your everyday samurai...He leans away far too much from the usual Samurai portrayal...

I did start watching the show and yeah, he doesn't really fit the bill.  He's more Gene Starwind or Vash the Stampede.  A "devil may care" character who can also be a bit of a goof-ball.

Kenshin isnt a samurai, he was a hitokiri....

My Favourite Samurai is without a doubt Kanbei Kuroda from Samurai 7 that guy is really badass

Samurai? Mine? Okay!
  • Kenshin (Samurai X)
  • Kyo (Samura Deeper Kyo)
  • Kenpachi Zaraki (Bleach)
  • Yamamoto Takeshi (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
  • Squallo (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
  • Rikuo Nura (Nurarihyon no Mago)
  • Roanoa Zorro (One Piece)
  • Sakata Gintoki (Gin Tama)
  • Katsushiro (Samurai 7)
  • Kyuuzo (Samurai 7)

Yup! That was all. I don't know any Samurai on Anime anymore than these. I do but, these are the least I can memorize.
