4. Raphtalia from The Rising of the Shield Hero (The Underdog)

Raphtalia is so adorable with her cat ears and cute outfits. She was born into slavery and set free by Naofumi, her love. Despite all that, she's so gentle and determined.

The things she does for Naofumi are so sweet and caring that they will melt your heart and make you wish you had a Raphtalia.

Science fans will especially fall for Manaka.

6. Yoko Littner from Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan (The Dueler)

There's something sexy about a woman with a gun. They aren't afraid to fight and don't get dirty doing it. If you agree, you'll want to consider Yoko as a waifu.

Yoko also has a curvy, seductive body and wears a red and black flame bikini that accentuates her assets.

7. Tamaki Kotatsu from Fire Force (The Bad Girl)

Kurisu is the perfect waifu if you are attracted to brainy girls. She graduated from university when she was 17 and is now a neuroscientist. She's brilliant but also calm, collected, and caring.

Meidri is a little crazy and eccentric but in an adorable way. People who want someone a bit spacey will find a wonderful waifu in Meidri.

Meidri also has a huge chest, nicely complemented by her usual maid outfits. It's hard not to love her body. Meidri may be a part bird, but you can't tell from looking at her!

11. Secre Swallowtail from Black Clover (The Demon)

Secre is sweet and sexy but also seems evil. You can see it when you look at her. Her dress and hair are black. She has glowing red eyes and a pair of small black devil horns. That adds to her beautiful nature, though, especially for people who love that kind of dark waifu.

12. Iris from Fire Force (The Nun)

What is better than a nun if you love the innocent, pure-hearted waifu? Iris makes it her job to pray for the souls of exercised infernals and is selflessly dedicated.

Iris has a good body and just enough fighting spirit to make her a great waifu.

13. Sesshomaru from Inuyasha (The Bad Boy)

Sesshomaru is the ultimate bad boy, but he also has the mysterious charm people look for in a waifu. So look no further if a beautiful dress and a powerful, protective man attract you.

Yes, waifus are traditionally female. It's modern times, though, and the word's definition is changing to fit any anime or manga character people love.

14. Jiro Kyuka from Boku No Hero Academia (The Punk Princess)

Jiro is not a traditional anime character at all, which is one of the things that makes her so attractive. Instead, she is a rebellious and passionate punk rock princess who plays electric guitar, makes bold fashion statements, and focuses more on being cool than sexy.

That noted, Jiro's ripped t-shirts and black leggings give her a gritty aesthetic that will drive some people crazy with love.

15. Ezra Scarlet from Fairy Tale (The Fighter)

Ezra is for you if you like a waifu who gets down and dirty when she fights. So often, her clothes tear and get stained by dirt and blood in battle. But she is still beautiful and has the body of a great waifu.
