In fighting shonen anime, heroes always try their best to defeat villains. To achieve this goal, the heroes will have to train a lot and get stronger. Many anime heroes often turn to mastering some type of weapon to gain an advantage over their opponents.
Firearms are one of the most commonly used weapons, and they give their users an advantage by being able to take out their target from a long distance. A weapon in the hands of a good marksman can be very powerful. And these are some of the strongest anime sniper.
7/7 Yasopp (one piece)
Yasopp is a member of the Red Hair Pirates, which are one of the four strongest pirate crews in the world One piece. Yasopp had achieved a lot of fame before even joining the crew. Shanks was so impressed by the rumors of Yasopp’s strength that he went to see him in person.
At present, it is very difficult to gauge Yasopp’s strength as the Red Hair Pirates have rarely engaged in major battles. However, if you believe Luffy’s statement, Yasopp has never missed a shot in his life. Also, Yasopp boasts that he can hit an ant’s antenna from 100 feet without injuring the rest of its body. It goes without saying that this would be an absolutely incredible feat for any sniper.
6/7 Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)
Spike is the protagonist of the extraordinary Cowboy Bebop Series. He was an extremely well known bounty hunter who traveled with Jet Black’s bebop. Before becoming a bounty hunter, Spike was a member of the Red Dragon Crime Syndicate.
During his time in the organization, he developed into a very skilled fighter, skilled at fighting both with and without weapons. As a bounty hunter, Spike often hunted his targets, and when he couldn’t get close, he had to rely on his marksmanship. Spike’s elite shooting skills are showcased many times in the series.
5/7 Vash (Trigun)
Vash is one of the most famous anime snipers. He is the main protagonist of trigun. With a $60,000,000,000 bounty on his head, Vash is the most wanted man in the world. It has been associated with disasters as it leaves much destruction in its wake.
Vash carries multiple guns, but his most commonly used weapon is a revolver that fires .45 Long Colt ammunition. Despite his reputation for being a fearsome man, Vash rarely shoots to kill. His marksmanship allows him to shoot his targets at points that would incapacitate them. Another example of his shooting skills is the fact that he managed to change the trajectory of a car with just three shots.
4/7 Guido Mista (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Guido Mista used to belong to Bruno Bucciarati’s gang. He was one of the few people who decided to follow Bruno to the end. Like the other members of Bucciarati’s gang, Mista is a Stand user. Mista’s booth is called the Sex Pistols, which is a long-distance booth.
Unlike most Stands, Sex Pistols don’t have a single humanoid body. Instead, the stand consists of six small units. The Sex Pistols greatly improve Mista’s shooting skills. They can control the direction of bullets, allowing them to get the bullet back on track even if Mista’s target is off by an inch. They also have an immensely fast reaction speed, and once they were able to stop three bullets from killing Mista.
3/7 Duke Togo (Golgo 13)
Duke Togo, better known as Golgo 13, is one of the best assassins in the anime world. When someone hires Duke Togo, they know they’re getting a cold-hearted and ruthless killer. As an assassin, he is proficient in various weapons, but his greatest strength is sniping.
He could shoot a man from over 500 yards through a 2 foot opening, unthinkable for even the best marksman. Such an achievement cannot be overlooked and it earns Duke Togo a spot on the list.
2/7 Ryo Saeba (City Hunter)
Ryo Saeba was raised to be a killer. After rigorous training, Ryo became an incredible marksman with no apparent weakness. As brilliant as Ryo is at hand-to-hand combat, his skill with weapons far surpasses him.
Over time, Ryo mastered the art of shooting to the point where he could repeatedly shoot at the same spot on his target. An example of Ryo’s sniping is when he managed to punch a person across the subway platform and through a passing train.
1/7 Alucard (Hellsing)
When someone thinks of Alucard, they picture him as a bloodthirsty demon that wreaks havoc on everything in its path. However, Alucard has a more human side where he fights with firearms instead of his supernatural abilities.
through Hellsing, Alucard has been seen wielding two weapons to defeat his opponents; one was the Casull and the other was called the Jackal. The Casull weighs 4kg and the Jackal 16kg which makes it impossible for any normal human to carry them, but then again Alucard is the furthest from the ordinary so it was perfectly normal for him. Using these two weapons, Alucard can easily decimate a very large population of ghouls.
