Tabito Karasu’s aggressive plays make him one of the best players in Blue Lock. Although he started as a forward, Ego was the first person to spot that his abilities are better suited as a defensive midfielder.

He acts as the pivotal point of the team by not only breaking the opposition’s plays but also forcing a quick counter for his team. He is the link between the forwards and the defenders and has played his part perfectly against the Japan U-20 players.

19) Oliver Aiku

Aiku is one of the few players who can get into Blue Lock’s main team. He was also a forward when he first started his career but soon found out that he was more satisfied in denying the other players from scoring.

 His instinct is out of this world as he can read the game perfectly. This allows him to position himself so that he can intercept any pass, making it almost impossible to go past him.

18) Kenyu Yukimiya

Kenyu Yukimiya

Japanese Name雪宮 剣優

Kenyu managed to come out in #5 out of all the forwards in the story, which automatically makes him one of the best Blue Lock players. 

He is a beast when it comes to one-on-one situations and has proved to be a valuable asset for the team in midfield. Similar to Bachira, he is also a great dribbler and specializes in finding the easiest route through the opposition’s defense.

17) Hyoma Chigiri

Speed is one of the essential assets in football, and Hyoma Chigiri is by far one of the fastest players in Blue Lock. This allows him to run down the wings at a tremendous pace and spread the play, giving the midfielders a chance to utilize the space created in the middle. 

Even though he suffered from a career-ending injury in his childhood, he managed to gather himself up and solidify his place in the first eleven of Blue Lock.

16) Alexis Ness

Alexis Ness

Japanese Nameアレクシス ネス

The most loyal player in Blue Lock, Alexis is incredibly loyal to Kaiser and his instructions. He is called the magician, due to his affinity for dribbling.

Alexis is also an extremely talented midfielder, who can easily steal and pass the ball to his teammates with his skills. He is loyal to the point of obsessiveness and was unable to accept Isagi’s moves in the match. Arguably, Alexis and Kaiser got some of the best chemistry in Blue Lock as well as in Bastard Munchen.

15) Aryu Jyubei

Aryu Jyubei

Initially the second-best player in the Blue Lock foundation, he had plenty of time to showcase his glamorous skills. Aryu later was chosen to play as a defender against Japan’s U-20 team because of his flexibility.

It was due to Aryu’s moves, the Blue Lock players were able to stop Itoshi Sae’s last shot. During the Neo Egoist league, he also got selected for Italy Ubers playing along with Barou and Olivier.

14) Yo Hiori

Yo Hiori

He is level-headed and a cool player, who always looks for the best option to score. Hiori is also a very consistent player, who does not get caught up in opponents’ traps, and performs his best in every match.

13) Mikage Reo

He is undoubted, one of the most versatile players, and a vital player during the match against Japan U-20. Reo had flawlessly copied Olivier Aiku’s defensive ability and stopped numerous players.

Reo also had shot through the ranking, receiving a bid of 40 million, for his playmaker abilities. He created multiple opportunities for his team as well as himself for scoring.

Reo had also managed to keep with Yukimuya’s beautiful course shot against Bastard Munchen and would have stopped it if not for Yukimuya’s extra addition. The best part about him is that he can copy anyone effectively with an efficiency rate of 99%.

12) Kunigami Rensuke

Although he was bested by Ryusei Shidou in the second selection arc, he proved his worth after going through the wild card door. He had received an enormous bid of 47 million, surpassing many other famed players.

Kunigami had successfully received a place in the Bastard Munchen team and showed off why he was worth the money. His physical ability and his skills had reached greater heights, after he went through loss, and turned into a master goal scorer.

11) Julian Loki

Julian Loki

Japanese Nameジュリアン・ロキ
Hair ColorBlack
Eye ColorBrown

One of the best players in Paris x Gen, and also a prodigy by nature, he had plenty of time to showcase his skills. Even in the second selection arc, he had superiorly shown all of his talents, effectively shutting down even Itoshi Rin.

He is also very polite but has great confidence in all of his skills. Loki calmly observes his opponents and waits for the right moment to strike and showcase his godspeed. With this only, he had completely evaded Rin at the end of the second selection arc.

10) Isagi Yoichi

Isagi Yoichi

Japanese Name潔 世一
Height175 cm

There is no doubt that the protagonist of our story is one of the best Blue Lock players. Similar to Aiku, Isagi Yoichi can also read the game perfectly and come up with unique ways to break the opposition’s defense. 

His specialty is linking up with the other players, bringing out his best plays. He can also shoot instinctively at the goal, with the highest probability of the ball ending up at the back of the net.

9) Michael Kaiser

Michael Kaiser

Japanese Nameミヒャエル カイザー
ArchetypeClinical Finisher
Hair ColorBlonde
Eye ColorBlue

Bastard Munchen’s ace and a prodigy, Kaiser is considered as one of the best players and has the skills to back it up. In the Neo-Egoist league, he had marked Chris Prince and was able to restrict some of his movements.

Even against Isagi, he had kept up with Isagi’s train of thought and almost managed to win against him. After all of this, and the tiring match, he broke no sweat nor was tired, while Isagi collapsed after the match.

8) Meguru Bachira

Meguru Bachira

Japanese Name蜂楽 廻
Height176 cm
Hair ColorBlack and Yellow
Eye ColorYellow

Bachira is the monster of Blue Lock who has formed a chemical reaction with the protagonist of this series since the beginning. He is an excellent dribbler who can bring the ball further up the field and make a perfect transition from defense and offense. 

The way he danced through the Japan U-20 players further highlights the extent to which he has sharpened his skills. He cleared every defender from the field with his dribbling moves, even Olivier Aiku, and almost scored.

7) Seishiro Nagi

Seishiro Nagi

Japanese Name凪 誠士郎
Height190 cm
ArchetypeCreative Midfielder
Hair ColorWhite
Eye ColorGray

Nagi is a prodigy in the story and by far one of the best Blue Lock players. He was so technically gifted that he didn’t even have to spend too much energy while playing. 

His strength lies in his insane ability to trap any ball with such perfection that it makes scoring all the easier. He acts as the attacking midfielder for his team, who can give line-breaking passes to the forward.

6) Ryusei Shidou

Ryusei Shidou

Japanese Name士道 龍聖
Height185 cm
ArchetypeGoal Poacher
Hair ColorBlonde
Eye ColorPink

If Bachira is the monster, then Shidou is the devil in Blue Lock. The fact that his talent is recognized by Sae automatically makes him one of the best players in Blue Lock. 

He has every aspect needed to be one of the best players in the world, starting from spatial awareness to poaching abilities. His muscular physique also enables him to rise and meet the balls that Sae sends his way.

5) Barou Shoei

Barou Shoei

Japanese Name馬狼照英
Height187 cm
ArchetypeComplete Forward
Hair ColorBlack
Eye ColorRed

Barou is one of the perfect Blue Lock players, as he has both a selfish, arrogant attitude as well as the ego to survive in any condition. He had evolved a lot, since the second selection arc, after he started to devour his teammates to further develop.

With this, Barou becomes very unpredictable and gave a hard time to many of his opponents who could not stop him. Even in the Neo Egoist league, he had scored a beautiful hat-trick against FC Barcha and won the highest bid of 100 million for himself.

4) Itoshi Rin

Itoshi Rin

Japanese Name糸師 凛
Height186 cm
Hair ColorDark Green
Eye ColorTeal

Rin is the younger brother of Sae in this story and the best player in the Blue Lock project. He has always been in his brother’s shadow but is slowly catching up to him. 

He is a playmaker who can combine well with a second striker to destroy a defense. His strength lies in his off-the-ball movements, which can make him the best forward in the future.

3) Chris Prince

Chris Prince

Japanese Nameクリス・プリンス
ArchetypeTarget Man
Hair ColorBlonde
Eye ColorN/A

Chris Prince is the world’s second-best striker and is considered to be on par with Noel Noa in terms of abilities. His athletic ability is out of the park, as he can easily mark any opponent with his physique alone.

He is also very energetic and unpredictable, which almost led to Isagi losing the match. Chris was also marked by Noel Noa and still managed to score a goal.

2) Itoshi Sae

Itoshi Sae

Japanese Name糸師冴
Height180 cm
Hair ColorReddish-Brown
Eye ColorGreen

There is no doubt that Itoshi Sae is the best Blue Lock player. Unlike the other players, Sae is a genius midfielder who went to play abroad from a very young age. 

This has improved his game to such a level that no one in the story is even close to his talent currently. We have seen him overwhelming his opponents numerous times, especially when he tore through the Blue Lock team with little to no effort.

1)Noel Noa

Noel Noa

Japanese Nameノエル・ノア
ArchetypeComplete Forward
Hair ColorWhite
Eye ColorYellow

Arguably, he is the best Blue Lock player, due to his unmatchable skill and his experience. Noel is widely regarded as the world’s greatest striker, and there is a reason why he still holds that position.

Superior skill, physique, and ability to score in any position or angle. Noel has all of these stats maxed out, which makes him the world’s best striker. He is also ambidextrous, allowing him to play various shots and dribble past his opponents with no effort.
