The height of a character is rarely mentioned in manga and anime unless they are abnormally little or gigantic. It’s common to picture a bumbling buffoon when we consider a small character, someone who can make us laugh in spite of our own prejudices towards people who are physically different from ourselves. Although this is usually the case, there are exceptions.
There are many characters who, despite their diminutive stature, make a big impression thanks to their unique traits and abilities. Some characters’ heights may be disregarded because of their other, more distinguishing features. The following list only includes 10 characters who are under 5 feet tall.
1. Schierke From Berserk – 5’7
Schierke, a young witch, helps Guts and his allies in their quest to foil Griffith. She has spent her life studying witchcraft, so she is not only powerful but also masterful at wielding her abilities. Guts’ life and sanity are saved by Schierke, the only person who can reliably pull him out of his berserker trance while wearing the Berserker Armor.
The Flower Storm Monarch has selected her to help mend Casca’s shattered mind. Schierke is very reserved for someone of her age, yet she is nonetheless warm and friendly to all she meets.
2. Konata Izumi From Lucky Star –5’7
Konata, captain of the Lucky Star, is both the crew’s leader and its shortest member. The plot of the show revolves around Konata and her three best friends as they go about their regular lives both at school and in their free time. Konata is wacky and fun to be around, but she also has a playful side and likes to tease her pals. She is an avid fan of manga, anime, and video games, and is known as an otaku.
Though intelligent, Konata often procrastinates in class, which negatively impacts her grades and necessitates a lot of cramming for tests. She has the time to participate in extracurricular activities at school, but she chooses not to because doing so would prevent her from watching her favourite shows.
3. Hanzō Urushihara From The Devil Is A Part-Timer – 5’7
Lucifer, one of Sadao Maou’s Four Demon Generals, assumes the identity of Urushihara. Formerly a highly regarded archangel, Lucifer eventually became tired of his position in heaven and made his way to the realm of the demons. Whenever he’s on Earth, Lucifer spends his time playing video games instead of working and conning people into doing the menial chores he doesn’t want to do himself.
Lucifer may seem unconcerned, yet he has proven to be loyal to those he considers friends. Like Maou and Ashiya, Lucifer’s full strength is substantially more than what he possesses on Earth.
4. Shiro From No Game No Life – 5’7
Female lead Shiro is Sora’s younger stepsister. Besides being able to play chess flawlessly and speaking 18 other languages, Shiro is also a genius. Game-playing and wits-based intelligence come naturally to Shiro, but he struggles to understand and respond to other people’s feelings and actions. She hardly ever opens her mouth and rarely shows any signs of feeling. Since their parents abandoned them, she has become extremely dependent on Sora to the point where she cannot function without him.
Shiro and Sora embark on the ultimate gaming quest when they are called to another realm known as Disboard, which is to unify the sixteen races of Disboard and fight Tet, the One True God.
5. Haruyuki “Haru” Arita From Accel World – 5’7
Haru is a middle school kid who has been tormented extensively because of his size and height. Though Haru isn’t particularly athletic in real life, his Avatar, Silver Crow, has a sleek appearance because of his incredible speed and talent in the accelerated gaming environment.
The bullying continued at first because Haru was too frightened to intervene. But after earning self-assurance through acceleration, Haru becomes more outgoing and assertive in his everyday life. His present level is 7, but he and Kuroyukihime have set a goal of level 10 so that they can meet the Accel World’s creator after defeating the Six Kings of Pure Color.
6. Tatsumaki From One-Punch Man – 4’8”
Class S and Hero Association Rank 2 Tatsumaki, aka the Tornado of Terror. Her level of psychokinetic strength makes her the strongest esper in the show. She is actually 28 years old, despite the fact that people frequently mistake her for much younger. Tatsumaki has a serious inferiority problem, as seen by her inability to admit when someone is stronger than her and her general reluctance to face foes who are more powerful than her.
As she has produced earthquakes simply by getting angry, her behavior poses a threat to the normal people in her vicinity. She may have a short fuse and a hard time empathizing with others, but she takes her role as a hero very seriously and will combat any danger that arises.
7. Krillin From Dragon Ball Z – 5’0”
Krillin was a selfish and spoiled child, yet he eventually became Goku’s best friend and an integral part of the Dragon Ball Z cast.

As a loyal and compassionate person, he would give his life to protect his companions and the world.
When the situation calls for it, he can be taken seriously, but most of the time he serves as comic relief. In later episodes, he settles down with Android 18; the couple had a daughter they name Marron. His signature technique is the Destructo Disc, a disc he creates with his Ki that is extremely sharp. This disc of energy can vaporise anything it encounters.
8. Hiei From Yu Yu Hakusho – 4’10” (Excluding His Hair)
