Today, we’ll be talking about anime characters with helmets. A helmet doesn’t sound like a popular accessory to dress with. Characters from anime and manga often style themselves in a quirky way, with over-the-top costumes and exaggerated goggles. They also sometimes don helmets. Sure, wearing helmets and looking good might be a long task, but if anyone can do it, it’s these characters.
Here are ten anime characters with helmets who know how to rock their looks.
List of 10 Anime Characters with Helmets
1) Celty Sturluson (Durarara!!)
Celty Sturluson is the first on our list of 10 anime characters with helmets. Celty is an Irish fairy, known as a Dullahan, who came to Japan looking for her missing head.
While working as an underground transporter and taking occasional work from Izaya Orihara, Celty looks for her missing head. She has transformed her familiarity into a motorcycle to blend into the modern world.
Celty always wears a motorcycle helmet to hide her headless status. The helmet is yellow with cat ears. There is a stylized S designed on the left side of the helmet, just under the cat’s ear. The back of the helmet is indigo blue, and so is the color of the eye protector glass.
2) Zero (Code Geass)
Zero is the alter ego of Lelouch vi Britannia, who started a revolution against the Britannia Empire. Lelouch uses Zero’s persona to lead the revolution from behind the shadows.
To hide his real identity, he wears a helmet and a high-collared cape like Zero. Zero’s helmet design changes in the movie, but the color scheme remains the same.
The original helmet is black, with three spines staying up like a trident. Two separate spines come from behind. The helmet also has an oval-shaped glass-covered area, the color of which is purple. This glass can be opened at will. There is a golden design just under the glass.
3) Son Gohan (Dragon Ball Z)
Gohan is the elder son of Goku and Chichi. Like his father, he is also a Saiyan capable of great strength. After his father’s death in the Cell Saga, Gohan lives an everyday life from then on, pursuing his studies and going to college.

He also wears a helmet to hide his identity. The helmet is orange from the sides and black from the back. There’s also a black visor attached to it and two pairs of dials and antennas on either side of the helmet.
4) Reg (Made in Abyss)
Reg is an android who is found by Riko on the first layer of the abyss. He has amnesia and doesn’t remember anything, including his name. Riko names him Reg, after a dog she had.

6) Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Alphonse Elric is an alchemist and the younger brother of Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist. A failed human transmutation caused Edward to lose his arm and leg and Alphonse his whole body.

Alphonse’s armor is huge and has a helmet with a white ribbon on the back of the head. The front of the helmet has two openings for eyes and an underjaw, along with two whisker-like patterns on each side of the face. There’s also a cone on the forehead plate of the metal.
