Top Anime Femboys
Here are tons of amazing femboys in anime, femboy characters that always won us over with their amazing personalities and sense of dress, plus iconic outfits and hilarious and empowering scenes! Here are some of the best, cutest anime femboys through popular anime shows. You may have come across the term “traps” in the anime community - if not definitely check out our list of best anime trap characters! Since there are some amazing femboys that were missed from that post, we feel it is only right to give them their own special feature here and celebrate them in all their glory. 

The term 'trap' or 'trap anime character' is often used interchangably with the word ‘femboy’, however 'trap' can be thought to encompass anime characters of every gender - for example, we have some reverse traps, where girls might appear as boys. For the purpose of this article, we are talking about femboys in anime as girlish looking boys who like cute things and love to wear girlish attire. Especially in anime where most of the voice actors are females, there’s no way to tell them apart from other girls unless explicitly mentioned by the characters themselves. Given their unconventional nature, they are certainly unique and have become incredibly celebrated in the anime and manga community, with many finding refuge in these characters and feeling themselves represented on screen. However, there may be many a stereotype, often for comedic value, that is fun to debunk too. Here are my top 10 favourite anime femboys of all time!


10. Hime Arikawa from Himegoto

Top Anime Femboys
Hime is a hardworking character in the anime, working hard to pay back the great debt that his parents took out in his name. However, it transpires there is a shortcut he can take. In return for paying off the remainder of the debt owed, the the student council ask Hime to spend the rest of his high school career dressed as a beautiful woman, as well as devoting his time to the student council. He makes for an incredibly true to life female, with his bright pink hair tied with red ribbons and big blue eyes! He is such an unforgettable character in the anime!

9. Gasper Vladi from High School DxD

Top Anime Femboys
A half-vampire anime character who can stop time, Gasper is one of the most memorable femboy anime characters of all time! He enjoys wearing female clothing because he thinks it is cute. When we first get to know him in the anime, we see that he is fearful and cowardly at first, but throughout the show we see him grow to be ever more self-confident and courageous.

8. Chihiro from Danganronpa

Top Anime Femboys
When Chihiro was a child, he became the subject of harassment and bullying. He was always told to "be a man" and that he was "so weak despite being a boy", and because of that, Chihiro slowly but surely began to develop a "weakness complex". In order to escape the bullying, Chihiro began to dress as a girl to disguise his gender so that people wouldn't bully him and think him weak. This only served to worsen his complex, as it wasn't addressing the root of his problems, and he would get bullied even more if the truth was found out. With his soft features and school girl uniform, he is often mistaken to be a girl and it must have come as quite a surprise to first time Danganronpa fans when Fujisaki revealed himself to be a boy. However, despite the way he dresses, it doesn’t change the fact that he is a computer genius and an awesome trap character in the anime.

7. Haku from Naruto

Top Anime Femboys
Haku could be considered to be one of the most elegant and beautiful anime femboys and is also one of the earliest introduced characters in Naruto. It is even mentioned in the manga that he is so beautiful that everyone mistakes him for a girl. While he doesn’t actively try to act like a girl, his soft and slender appearance can really be deceptive. He has a troubled backstory and is known to be easy going, kind hearted and compliant in the anime. For many fans alike, Haku was their first introduction to trap characters in anime.

6. Ruka from Steins Gate

Top Anime Femboys
Possibly one of the most feminine anime femboy characters in fans minds, in the anime we see Ruka actually transition in to an actual girl, which makes him an iconic character to observe. He is self guarded, fragile and nervous, unlike other characters in this list, with their flamboyant and outspoken ways, which only makes us want to protect him from the world. He is one of the side characters from the popular time travel anime Steins;gate.

5. Saika Totsuka from Oregairu

Top Anime Femboys
Anime femboy Sakia, is in my opinion, the most wholesome femboy there is. He is kind, warm and is really a good person through and through. He is the very definition of purity. Saika is one of the side characters from Oregairu. The MC of this anime clearly likes Saika but only holds himself back because he is a guy. However, this doesn’t stop the MC’s heart from skipping a beat whenever he talks to Saika. And the way Saika gets flustered when Hikigaya (the MC of Oregairu) teases him is absolutely adorable. A student of Class 2F in Sobu High School and a president of the school's Tennis Club, he has a naturally feminine appearance and is often misplaced for a girl. He is naturally beautiful in appearance, with silver hair and big sparkling blue eyes, but his personality truly takes centre stage in the anime.

4. Hideri from Blend S

Top Anime Femboys
Hideri's long term ambition and ultimate dream is to become an idol! Seeing that idols are generally girls in his world, he decides to commit to becoming one himself, in order to compete amongst them. Even though he exhibits many stereotypically feminine behaviours such as his adoration and love of cute things, he still retains his young boyish habits and behaviours, making dirty jokes and communing with insects, making him an anomoly in the idol world and an incredibly exciting character to watch! 

3. Felix from Re:Zero

Top Anime Femboys
An anime femboy who is also a catboy, Felix gets extra points for combining two different fetishes together. This means that not only does he possess the too cute habit of adding ‘nya’ to his sentences, he has an adorable cat boy appearance, with a heartrending troubled backstory to match. From the moment Ferris was born, he had cat like appendages due to his ancestors having Demi-Human blood, causing his parents to mistreat him as they suspected an affair. He was locked in the basement of the Argyle Mansion for the first nine years of his life and was barely cared for. When Crusch found him, she described him as "a fragile boy who was painfully thin, was black from being covered in dirt and filth, and couldn't talk properly". It is wonderful watching him grow in the anime, as a side character who is extremely loyal to his master and incredibly overprotective of her, we see that he would do anything for her.

2. Nagisa from Assassination Classroom

Top Anime Femboys
Top Anime Femboys
Another anime femboy character with a dark and troubled backstory is the wonderful Nagisa from the anime Assassination Classroom. It transpires that his mother was originally obsessed with having a girl child, so when Nagisa turned out to be a boy his mother forced him to look like a girl and behave in a certain way, leaving him hurt and confused emotionally and we see him struggle with some issues throughout the anime. Although Nagisa’s personality isn’t all that girl-like (normally), when he cross dresses he becomes extremely flustered and becomes more feminine. He is an extremely adorable femboy anime character, too cute to not include him on this list.

1. Astolfo from Fate series

Top Anime Femboys
Possibly one of the most popular femboys in anime, Astolfo is one of the side characters from the Fate series and has a whole ton of fan art and cosplay looks dedicated to him. It is no way an exaggaration to say that the current anime femboy community is based around him. He has a really cheerful personality and is adorable in many ways, to match his uber cute appearance and fancy, iconic outfits.

There can be a whole other side to femboys in anime, which can feature more sexy femboys and hentai femboys in more explicit anime shows, but that is a whole different ball game and specifically designed for adults only. These trap hentai characters require their own post entirely!
