Anime characters appear in all shapes and sizes. They also appear under a variety of names. Some anime characters have first and last names, some have nicknames, some have… well, they are always known as something. In that aspect, it is important to remember all of these names and that is why we have decided to bring you this list. This list is going to contain a list of anime characters that start with the letter J. They will be sorted alphabetically by the names they are known best, whether it is their first name, last name, or their nicknames.
Jack the Ripper (Fate)
Jack the Ripper was perpetuated in legend as a symbol of madness. Hence, “Jack” says that the Berserker class is the only one that truly fits him. Jack is a unique servant who is unaware of his true identity. Because of this, he has no normal form and only communicates with his master through telepathy. Flat Escardos is able to sense the magical energy flowing through the command spells to an unknown location.
It is a voice that has no unique characteristics, making it impossible to discern gender, age, or other features of the profession that are normally revealed by details in the voice.
It has the ability to take possession of its master, and if it had maintained its insanity under a different class, it would likely have taken possession of Flat and slaughtered everyone in the area in a mad rampage. Jack expresses surprise that someone felt it necessary to call him out, as he could not be expected to have the power of a hero or the morals of a human.
Jaden Yuki (Yu-Gi-Oh! GX)
Jaden Yuki is a duelist who dreams of becoming “King of Duelists” or “New Game Master”. He uses a “Hero of the Elements” deck with an array of fusion monsters, magic cards, and traps that support them. He is not very good at school and often sleeps in class (when he attends, which is more and more rare over time…). Because of this, he is part of the weakest dorm in the academy which is that of the Slifer Reds. However, he could have been Jaune Râ following his victory against Chad Princeton but he did not want to.
However, he is an excellent duelist who managed to beat Yugi Muto’s deck, however without divine cards like The Winged Dragon of Ra. Note that he encountered a copy of the latter which he defeated, then used against the forger in season 2 to punish him with the agreement of the dragon (the forgers must normally suffer the wrath of the dragon).

He then goes to a school to study Pokémon with Jessie where they get catastrophic grades.
Shortly after, they join a bicycle gang in which they become the most gifted. Then, he joined Team Rocket with Jessie and Meowth. At the start of the series, he has a Koffing which then evolves into a Weezinng that he had to release to protect a hunter’s Koffing.

However, he has a noble heart: he proves it when he claims to have given his wallet to Smokey Brown, a young thief, to save him from being beaten by police officers in New York (just like his great-grandfather, Lord Joestar, made in favor of Dario Brando). Joseph masters the Ripple naturally but is not as skilled in its use as Jonathan was. In addition, he does not hesitate to use all possible means to defeat his enemies (firearms, disguise…) as well as the most unexpected (during his fight against Straits, he will prefer to flee before the power of his opponent ).
His gimmick is to destabilize his interlocutor by saying: “And now you’re going to say that…” which often hits the nail on the head. The final fight against Cars costs him a hand which is replaced by a mechanical prosthesis created by the Speedwagon foundation. Joseph marries Suzi Q and have a daughter, Holly.

He and Tristan used to bother Yūgi, a weak and fearful young boy in their class, not in order to hurt him, but rather to make a man out of him. It was the day when Yugi came between him and a big bully who was threatening him that he became aware of a great friendship and they became inseparable. He had previously hidden a piece of Yugi’s Millennium Puzzle by throwing it into a swimming pool.
To redeem himself, he will dive into the pool to return (anonymously) this last piece to Yugi, who can then complete his Puzzle. Afterward, he and Yugi spent a lot of time together, they both participated in the Pegasus tournament so that Joey could finance his sister’s operation. Out of friendship in order to help him in the tournament, Yûgi will give him one of his rare cards.
Joey then saved Yūgi’s life by pulling him out of a burning store. His meeting with Yûgi radically changed his personality, going from a thug to an honest and upright boy. He is, however, quite clumsy and smooth-talking throughout the series. He maintains a violent rivalry with Seto Kaïba who spends his time belittling him. He nevertheless came close to beating Marek in the semi-finals of Battle City, but collapsed before launching the attack that would have assured him victory.

After Kaiba’s loss to Yūgi, he challenges the former to a duel for 3rd place, but loses.

However Vicious himself calls her a dangerous woman who needs to be watched over.
In a flashback, Julia’s voice calls all the women (probably pointing to herself) liars. Presumably, it was Vicious himself who pushed the woman into Spike’s arms in order to keep an eye on him, without imagining, however, that genuine love could arise between the two.
