Best Anime Moms and Best Anime Mum Characters

42. Ragyō Kiryūin

When we talk about raw power, Ragyo has got it all. She is probably the most intimidating Anime mom on our list today. But guess what? In terms of strength, speed, and every physical and mental capability, she transcends humans too. God works in a mysterious way, right.

41. Sachiko Fujinuma from Boku Dake ga Inai Machi

One of the hottest anime moms could definitely be Sachiko! She has an amazing, caring and generous personality and is Satoru's mother in the anime. A former news reporter, she will do anything to protect her son and is super admirable in many ways, being extremely hardworking, intellectual, and most of all, she’s as selfless as it gets. We see her son's love and admiration for her and we can emphathise with his character so strongly in the anime. To her son, she was the best mother he could’ve ever wanted, and we end up loving her just as much!

40. Inko Midoriya

Inko is the fourth generation in her family to be born with a Quirk, which gives her the ability to pull small objects toward her body from afar. She is the mother of her precious son, Izuku and is extremely protective and caring towards him, even constantly fretting and worrying about him, although is still very supportive of his endeavours. At one point in the anime, Inko states that she has no confidence in U.A. High School and is unable to entrust her son to them following his repeated injuries, going as far as to suggest that he transfer to another hero academy. Luckily, she comes to change her mind throughout the anime. No matter how strong Izuku is, Inko will always worry and fret over her son, however, is incredibly in tune with him when it comes to his ambitions (she created her son's very first hero costume in a short amount of time after seeing the costume sketches in his notebook) and they share many similar personality traits such as crying excessively to abnormal and comedic amounts when worried or happy, which leaves her severely dehydrated, and panics often when it comes to startling situations. She also faints often in those times of panic.

39. Carla Jaegar

The mother of Eren Jaeger and the second wife of doctor Grisha Jaeger, Carla is widely considered one of the hottest anime moms of all time and is renowned for her beauty, but her dedication to make Eren safe and sound was something else. She is dedicated and generous, courageous and selfless. In the series, when she was taken by a titan is one of the most popular scenes. And I’d be lying if I tell you that I didn’t feel anything. Hence, it was a rather very depressing moment for every watcher out there. However, Carla is the epitome of epicness. Her sacrifice didn’t go to waste. She is one of the best Anime moms out there for sure!

38. Maquia

One of the cutest anime mom characters of all time, Maquia just doesn't age! Her permanent form is that of a 16 year old girl, which is sure to incite envy amongst other moms everywhere! One of the cutest blonde anime moms, she is very well known as a milf anime mom character, which can only be a compliment - because she doesn’t age like humans, Maquia is the perfect hot anime Waifu mom material for the thirsty fanboys out there - but there's way more to her than that. We see her adopt Ariel after her country is destroyed in an attack by the Mezarte nation. Leading such a hectic life, Maquia just wanted someone to be with her. Such a touching story, right? She’s an awesome mom from the “Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms” series.

37. Nancy Takaishi from Digimon

The single mother of Yamato "Matt" Ishida and Takeru "T.K." Takaishi, she is one of the sweetest, kindest, most beautiful and hottest single moms in anime! One of the anime moms you ended up with a crush on in some form, Digimon wouldn't be Digimon without this overprotective but amazing woman. Even though she doesn’t really have custody of Matt, she still tries to be the best mother to her kids. Nancy tries her best to become an ideal mother to Matt and tries to understand where he is coming from, making her an empathetic, kind and patient character in the anime.

36. Hana from Wolf Children

Ame and Yuki's mother and Wolf Man's lover, despite never seen to be married in the film or book, she became a widow after his death. She is also one of the cutest anime single mum characters and is such a wholesome character also! It's so moving watching her dote on her kids and she has an inner strength, kindness and beauty that truly shines through when watching the anime.

35. Sanae Furukawa from Clannad

One of the best anime moms, Sanae features in the anime series Clannad, one of the most emotional anime shows you will see in a while, seriously, all the feels! It also features a pair of the cutest anime twins you ever did see aswell. With a difficult backstory, Sanae is the mother of Nagisa Furukawa and has a youthful, vulnerable side to her, but is also shown to be incredibly strong willed, loyal and dependable. She runs the Furukawa Bakery with her husband Akio. She often tries out strange concepts to make breads that are anything but edible and never get sold. Outside of the bakery, she tutors children. She's quite proud of the way people often mistake her for Nagisa's older sister because of her youthful appearance. She is definitely one of the most attractive anime moms or hottest anime mum characters out there, with her big dewy eyes and chestnut bangs.

34. Akari Sakishima

The mother of Akira Shiodome and the stepmother of Miuna Shiodome in the anime, she is a real and human mother figure, dealing with raw and difficult issues, such as the difficulty connecting with her stepdaughter, who doesn't want to have any relationship with her. She must be kind and patient and persistent, whilst dealing with all the not so jolly parts of motherhood. She is truly inspiring and there is so much depth to her character; she tries to become the ideal mother for her own brother but has plenty of dark days in her life, which really bring extra dimensions to her character and bring her to life. Her strength lies in not losing hope and accepting the fact that life isn’t always fun, but finding new found confidence every day.

33. Mari Katsuragi

The wife of Keiichi Katsuragi, the biological mother of Keima Katsuragi and the adoptive mother of Elucia de Lute Ima, who runs a café named Café Grandpa, Mari Katsuragi is super gentle and innocent in appearance, but hides a darker past and backstory steeped in gang violence, and badass side to her; there is definitely more to her than meets the eye. It's so interesting seeing her balance her sweet, motherly side with elements of her fierce gang persona still present, plus the aftereffects of her previous life on her new family centered one. She is seen to have frequent nightmares and worry constantly about the dark ripples of her past gang life impact on her son. She is loyal and fiercely protective, but gentle and sweet at the same time. She is a contradictory character but that's what makes her so much fun to watch!

32. Kushina Uzumaki

Is this list complete without Kushina? NOPE! Kushina is hands down, the best mother in Naruto. Sure! She wasn’t present in the actual timeline. However, the sacrifice she gave for Naruto was something else. Both parents were kind enough to sacrifice their lives for Naruto who had just been born. Even if we take away that mother’s side, Kushina was an awesome human being too. She knew that something was surely wrong with the village and things need to be changed. She worked hard to become a great ninja and a fine lady. In other words, Kushina is one of the best Anime moms out there.

31. Yasuko Takasu

The mother of Ryuuji in the anime and also known to Taiga as Ya-Chan, she is a fascinating character in the anime, as presents a whole different interpretation of motherhood that entirely differs from the usual perfect anime mom trope. Even though she is can be painted as easy-going or irresponsible in the anime, she allows a look at the day to day real struggle of motherhood and balancing different responsibilities, whilst catering for her son. She is constantly tired from having to wake up early, work multiple jobs at the same time, and complete jobs at home, all whilst feeding and caring her son, giving him the best life she can. She definitely deserves a rest and to put her feet up as much as possible. Yasuko is one of the best Anime moms out there! 

30. Akari Kawamoto

Even though Akari is not technically a mom or mum here, she truly belongs on this list for her role as a mother figure to her siblings in the anime, being the eldest. When you should be in university, she is busy taking care of the family. Her sole purpose of living is to provide her siblings the life they never had! It’s very tough being Akari as she’s busy day and night. Working jobs, taking care of the kids, and with no one to take care of her, she is one of the best Anime moms out there!

29. Hana Kirisaki

The wife of Adelt Wogner Kirisaki and the mother of Chitoge Kirisaki, Hana is a world renowned business consultant who keeps much of the world's finances in balance. She is a fascinating character to watch as she constantly tries to keep up with her workload along with balancing motherhood and often does not have much time to spend with the family, but she tries hard. She puts pressure on herself and has a tough time trying to fulfill her responsibilities from all angles. She is incredibly busy and hardworking, with not a free moment to be had. In so many ways she is very admirable and also the role model to a lot of people in the series.

28. Trisha Elric

A key figure in the anime/manga franchise Fullmetal Alchemist, she is the mother of the series' protagonists, Edward and Alphonse Elric. Ever since her husband left, Trish has raised her kids amazingly as a single mom or mum and was incredibly strong and stoic as a character to be able to do that. She has one of the saddest stories in anime, but is incredibly kickass and one of the strongest, most capable anime characters ever! Definitely give this anime a watch!

27. Yukari Nitani

One of the kindest anime moms is Yukari, who is mother to Kouki, but also becomes a kind of universal mother figure to so many characters in the anime. A single mother, she places the wellbeing of her son above her own and is another top-tier mom that is loved by a lot of otakus out there. Even though she isn't a mc in the anime, she is memorable in many fans minds and a character we love to see and an anime character we wish we could meet in real life.

26. Kyoko Honda

Kyoko is another innocent looking anime mom or mum with an epic badass backstory! Another badass Anime mom that was previously a member of a biker gang, Kyoko posthumously appears in flashbacks and photographs throughout the anime. However, that still gives her a pivotal role in the show! Her sole character changed the shape of Fruit Basket Anime, through our mc Tohru.

25. Miyako Ishida

A supporting character in the Koe no Katachi series, she is the mother of Shōya Ishida and his unnamed older sister, the mother-in-law to Pedro, and the grandmother of Maria. Miyako owns her own salon called "Hair Make Ishida." In the anime Miyako is a very kind mother, to her granddaughter and to her two children, we see that she cares a lot for Shoya, even going as far as burning all of his money due to his plan to end his own life, she also shows much care in her Granddaughter Maria. It is shown that she loves the little girl and takes care of her with Shoya and her daughter. She is a very caring woman, even not listening to Yaeko when she cuts the hair of Shouko.

24. Emi Handa

One of the most overprotective anime moms, Emi is a nervous mother to Seishuu in the anime, but we love her for it anyway. She struggles with the fact that her son is growing up and becoming more independent, and struggles to find her new role as a mother to a young man, instead of a boy, who doesn't need her the same way he always used to, but to play a different role in his life. She initially opposes Seishuu's wish to live on the island, refusing to believe that he is growing up and distancing himself from his parents. However, she begrudgingly gives him her blessing after seeing how fulfilled he is when helping the people of Nanatsutake village. Emi often comments that Seishuu and Seimei are very similar, and sometimes intervenes when she senses that the two are either too stubborn or don't know how to solve their differences. Later on, when Seishuu and Naru come to visit, Emi takes a liking to Naru and, to Seishuu's embarrassment, spends time going over his baby photos with her. Emi is also a master of double-edged compliments, especially when she and Kirie butt heads.

23. Lisa Lisa from Jo Jo Bizarre Adventures

A core ally in Battle Tendency, Lisa Lisa is the wife of George Joestar II and the mother of Joseph Joestar, with her real name being Elizabeth Joestar. Known for her unshakable beauty and powerful character, after her husband got killed by a zombie, Lisa Lisa went full-on training and even went on to train her child. Therefore, we got to see a lot of interesting plot twists in the JJBA series. She is strict and hardcore, but a super powerful anime mother figure!

22. Touko Fujiwara

Touko and her husband, Shigeru are distant relatives of Natsume who adopted him and now raise him in their home at the countryside. Natsume keeps his ability to see youkai a secret from the Fujiwaras, fearing that this knowledge would get them involved in the world of youkai and bring them harm. Touko and Shigeru are aware that there are many things that Natsume is not yet comfortable sharing with them but choose not to pry. They assure Natsume that they consider him a part of their family, and want to make their home a place where he feels that he belongs.

21. Masaki Kurosaki

Masaki is another anime mom that we only get to see a little of in the anime, but is too important not to include. While we couldn’t get to see what Masaki was like her in regular life, one scene was enough to give us a glimpse of what was going on. She was the best mother Ichigo could ever have. The tragedy that killed Masaki was super sad. Her bad fate with hollows got her killed, and it was one of the saddest Anime deaths that we ever got to see.

20. Bell-Mère

A former Marine, Bell Mere is the adoptive mother of Nami and Nojiko, introduced in a flashback during the Arlong Park Arc. She raised the two girls as their foster mother until she was murdered by Arlong, 10 years ago. In terms of her death, Bell had a choice, to sacrifice her daughters or die. An incredibly courageous mother figure, Bell is one of the strongest Anime moms on our list. Her courage and love for kids is something that we don’t get to see. Even in real life, we don’t get to see this level of love.

19. Momoko Shigeno

In this anime version of the happy ending of Matilda, well kinda, Momoko is the kindergarten teacher of our guy Goro Honda, who later goes on to become his new stepmum in the anime. She is such a wholesome character to watch and definitely an anime character like Miss Honey in Matilda! Just like Miss Honey, she had a troubled backstory and came from a life of hardship, but is incredibly sweet and generous. Major is one of those Anime that can hook you up emotionally with a lot of characters and Momoko is such a pleasure to watch always!

18. Sachiko Yagami

The mother of Light Yagami and Sayu Yagami, who is oblivious to Light's ownership and use of the Death Note, Sachiko is a kind and caring woman who deeply loves her family and worries about Soichiro Yagami's well-being while he works on the Kira case. When Soichiro is hospitalized due to a stress-related heart attack, she is frequently by his side to care for him. As concerned as she is about Soichiro, she also understands his convictions in working on the Kira case, and she stays by his side. Unknowing of Light's secret, Sachiko is proud of the academic success of her son, and congratulates him on his good grades. When Sayu Yagami is wheelchair-ridden due to emotional trauma caused by her kidnapping, Sachiko aides her recovery, encouraging her and taking her for walks outside. Dedicated to the family, she desperately does her best to keep it all together.

17. Chi-Chi

The princess of Fire Mountain and the daughter of the Ox-King, she later marries Goku and becomes the loving mother of Gohan and Goten. She was first introduced as a shy and fearful girl, but later, as she gets older, develops a very tomboyish, tough and fierce personality, which sometimes causes her to have angry outbursts seen several times throughout the series! However, she is so loveable and charming, managing to charm her way to Goku's heart and becoming a protective and loving mother to her sons, Gohan and Goten. She is really iconic and we always end up rooting for her, Chi Chi is one of the best Anime moms on our list.

16. Ryouko Tamiya from Parasyte

One of the most popular anime, Parasyte also stars one of the most popular anime moms - or most well known unexpected motherly figures in anime out there, meet Ryouko Tamiya! Even though she is a parasyte in the anime, she can't stop her maternal instincts coming through and feelings emerging for her kid, even though parasytes are emotionless. One of the most wholesome moments in the whole anime is when she gives her life to save her son; even when a parasyte had taken her form, it couldn't relinquish the protective instinct towards her son.

15. Mikoto Uchiha

Mikoto is the anime mom of her two sons, Sasuke and Itachi and is a mom character we could not miss off this list! A very kind mother to Sasuke and Itachi, even when Itachi threatened to kill Mikoto, she remained calm and just cried due to the fact that she won’t see her kids. To Sasuke, she had been an awesome mother. Always asking him how his day went and what did his dad talk about, she is one of the best Anime moms on our list.

14. Queen Serenity from Sailor Moon

The queen of the Moon Kingdom during the Silver Millennium and the mother of Princess Serenity, Queen Serenity is a regal and beautiful ethereal figure with stunning silver locks and is an iconic mother figure in anime that couldn't be missed from our list! After all, she is the mother of Sailor Moon, well a past incarnation at least. Even though she is not often seen, usually through flashbacks, a minor character in terms of appearances, but she had a major impact on Sailor Moon mythos. Without Queen Serenity, there would be no Sailor Moon, and not just because she’s Usagi’s mom.

When it comes to this Queen, her sacrifice is something that we really need to mention. Her sacrifice was worth it though. Plus, can we talk about the fact that she is meant to be permanently 18? Her stunning appearance for sure makes her one of the hottest anime moms or mums, plus her amazing strength and power makes her one of the hottest milf characters in anime! 

13. Clara Magnolia

One of the best looking Anime on our list is Violet Evergarden. Well, one of the best looking moms too. Clara is such a beauty. We just can’t even compare her to anyone. Episode 10 was very popular. All thanks to Clara, the Anime lives up to its hype. It was shown that Clara was the mother of Ann Magnolia. Her love for Ann was something every mother needs to watch! She was an awesome lady with a great character. Moreover, Clara was also the epitome of what beauty looks like.

12. Videl

The daughter of Mr. Satan and Miguel, the wife of Gohan and the mother of Pan,Videl is probably the youngest mother here. She is the wife of Gohan but at the time of her being Gohan’s girlfriend, she became pregnant with Pan. However, she is one of the best Anime moms on our list and one of the best character transformations ever. First shown to be an angry, frustrated, impatient and impulsive character, she evolves and grows in to a humble and patient, understanding and loving character, which is so wholesome to see, especially when we see those scenes with her and Pan.

11. Tomoko Higashikata

Tomoko is fundamentally a strong and defensive character in the anime and is iconic in that way, after all, no one can shake off a whole bevy of unwanted thirsty guys chasing after her than Tomoko can. Even though she is intimidating on appearance, she is mostly a kind person, especially to her family and friends. She can sometimes be a strict anime mom to her son Josuke in the anime, but always has a special and important meaning behind it. Also a teacher in the anime, she is ballsy and beautiful and is easily one of the hottest anime moms on our list, reknowned for being one of the sexiest moms in anime.

10. Kurenai Sarutobi

A caring and brave woman, she shows great concern towards her students and takes a vested interest in their growth, especially in regards to Hinata Hyūga due to knowing full well how Hinata was viewed by her father. When Hinata tried to offer Naruto some medicine after his fight with Kiba, Kurenai convinced Naruto Uzumaki to take it because she knew of her student's infatuation with him. Her personality is unyielding, honest, and simple. She is also portrayed as the "big sister type", but is also a single mum to her daughter Mirai, after a secret relationship with love interest Asuma. She is such a comforting character, down to earth, generous and kind, and is the best person to turn to for advice, the best agony aunt figure in the anime and we respect her so much.

9. Rinko Iori from Gundam Build Fighters 

Rinko is a unique character and funny anime mom, she is crafty, funny, cheeky and kind hearted. Not only a skilled chef, she is an expert at playing cupid between her son Sei and China, with hilarious results. She will even stare with starry eyes when she thinks of the two together, which is so funny! Even if she can be intrusive at times, she means well and is cheery, kind, supportive and generous. If a curvy mom is your preference, Rinko is your girl. She has an incredible curvaceous figure and is definitely one of the hottest anime mums.

8. Delia Ketchum

The mother of Ash Ketchum, Delia also wanted to be a Pokemon trainer at some point in her life, but decided to let go of her plans in order to start a family. Even though we won’t see her often in the series, she is someone that loves Ash a lot and speaks openly and honestly as she knows him in and out. She would literally sacrifice her life for Ash’s happiness. She is an incredibly genuine character from what we see in the anime and an iconic mother figure.

7. Mito Freecss

Mito is Gon's mother figure, as she has taken care of him since he was a baby. Gon stated that when he tries to picture his mother, Mito's image shows up. At first, she was against the idea of Gon following his father's footsteps by becoming a Hunter as well, but she accepts this later on. She is motherly, kind and patient, being able to put up with Gon's faults and tends to him very well. Mito also tends to get easily embarrassed,     she deservers the world! She’s the epitome of wholesomeness. She is kind, protective, good and wise.

6. Kurumi Saiki from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K

One of the best good looking anime moms is Kurumi Saiki, renowned for her beauty but also her amazing intelligence, pursuing a master’s degree along with a hectic part-time job. She is incredibly protective of the family and is the mother of Kusuo and Kusuke and the wife of Saiki Kuniharu in the anime. She is a positive and upbeat force in the family and plays the role of a kind and gentle mother who, according to Kusuo, was one of the prominent reasons why he hasn't done bad things using his psychic powers.

5. Bulma from Dragon Ball Z

Bulma is super iconic in her own right, as a technological and scientific genius who can turn her talents to almost any field and understand alien technology near-effortlessly! Time and time again in the anime, her inventions have saved the day and been incredibly invaluable to Goku and the rest of the Dragon Team. It's fair to say she has a pivotal role in the anime, as well as being a super cool and amazing role model to her two kids, Trunks and Bulla. Definitely copying these names when it comes to naming my own kids. Who else do you know who sports cool names for their kids like that? She is also one of the most popular Anime moms out there, with her iconic turquoise hair and super cool dress sense. Aside from Goku, Bulma is the single longest-running character in the entire meta-series, being introduced in the first Dragon Ball chapter and episode, and maintaining a prominent role until the end of the series. It is recorded that her most notable invention is the Dragon radar, although it's hard to pick out of all her amazing creations. Plus her relationship with Vegeta (2nd lead protagonist) is beautiful!

4. Kazue Sonokawa

The most forgotten Anime mom on our list, KAZUE IS FIRE! There’s something so cool about moms whose hobbies include cooking, cleaning, and kicking some ass in the meantime, something that all mums and moms do, but maybe not quite as literally as Kazue, who has some epic moves. This gentle-looking mom literally blew minds. By that mean, she shot enemies with a revolver and looked insane doing it! She is one of our favourite Anime moms for sure! Her beauty is also killer.

3. Leonora Nakiri

The wife of Sōe Nakiri and the mother of Alice Nakiri, Leonora is an incredibly intelligent woman who is also a kind and loving mother that maintains a good relationship with Alice Nakiri, where she is also patient and nurturing enough to sit through nine hours on the phone with Alice after she lost her quarterfinal match to Sōma Yukihira. Like the rest of the Nakiri family, Leonora is very serious about the culinary industry and has an intense aura when it comes to cooking. She is one of the most beautiful anime moms for sure, her appearance is definitely enchanting.

2. Sora Vinsmoke

This beautiful blonde anime mom was the queen of the Germa Kingdom and the wife of Vinsmoke Judge, and the mother of Reiju, Ichiji, Niji, Sanji, and Yonji. One of the best Anime moms, Sora was a very kind and caring woman, with great strength of character. She loved her children and was fiercely protective of them, believing that they should grow up with normal human emotions and not as cold killing machines. As a result, she did everything in her power to resist her husband's experiments on their sons, to the point of sacrificing her own life. She is an important character to mention and also a truly beautiful anime character, with her wavy blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes.

1. Bucciarati

This might be a wildcard entry but trust me, Bucciaratti is one of the best Anime moms out there. At first, it was more of a joke, but I decided to turn it into an actual thing. In the Anime, he is seen helping everyone, fighting for them, and treating his gang like his own family. No matter how hard the circumstances were, he just never lost hope. He would literally go crazy if one of the boys are hurt.
