Top 7 Anime Character Creator Websites

There is no doubt that anime character creator websites are awesome and enjoyable. Most of the good ones let you choose from many anime styles and you can usually customize even the smallest details of your anime character.

You can use your own, customized anime character avatar for pretty much anything, ranging from your Discord PFP through blog avatar to Youtube videos. Just make sure to always read the terms and conditions of a specific avatar you are creating. We don’t want any legal troubles, do we? 😀

By the way, I completely excluded cartoonish character creator websites and only included anime character creator ones. There is plenty of cartoon character creator websites but their avatars don’t look anime-like at all.

Let’s get started!

7. Crypko

Crypko uses a generative adversarial network to create waist-up anime characters. You can generate, fuse, and edit various attributes of your anime character.

There is a freemium plan that allows you to generate anime avatars with one anime model called Erika, which is a face model. The freemium doesn’t allow you to download the avatar without a watermark, though, and you can’t use it for commercial purposes.

The monthly cost of the basic plan is 6.8€/month, but you must purchase the premium plan, which costs 34,57€/month if you want to use the anime avatar for commercial purposes.

The cost of a commercial license for one image under the freemium plan is 6.8€.

The basic plan (6.8€/month) includes the following:

  • CP Recovery: 5 min/CP
  • CP Recovery Limit: 1000 CP
  • Slots: 100 Slots
  • Generate
  • Fuse
  • Collab Fuse
  • Attributes
  • Canvas
  • Erica (face)
  • Freesia (upper body)
  • FreesiaM (upper body)
  • Private save
  • Download without watermark

6. Doll Divine

Anime avatar creation, magical girl dressing, and character creation in the anime/manga style are all possible with Doll Divine. You can dress the characters in historical garb or even lolita or magical girl attire.

Doll Divine offers a colorful variety of anime character creator games, but not all of the creations will be downloadable.

5. Make Girls Moe

How about creating anime characters with the help of A.I.?

With Make Girls Moe, you could just enter characteristics (such as red hair/ponytail/green eyes), and an anime character with your preferences will be generated without any additional help!

The website currently offers 4 models:

  • Amaryllis 128×128 (3.8 MB)
  • Bouvardia 128×128 (9.8 MB)
  • Bouvardia 256×256 (9.9 MB)
  • Camellia 256×256 (9.9 MB)

Please note that the avatars can be used only for non-commercial use. 

4. Charat

Charat is an anime character creator that you can play for free, without the need of installing anything.

With so many parts, the combinations are virtually limitless. It’s easy to give your own anime character a REALLY distinctive look.

Also, your avatar can be used for commercial purposes (with a few exceptions).

3. Neka

Neka is a website where anyone can share their own character designs.

Here, you can utilize the templates that the artists have provided. Neka offers free widget assembly and the creation of a wide range of unique anime characters.

Artists can work with split parts, upload materials, troubleshoot, and create templates using the Neka editor.

Bear in mind that all anime characters created through Neka are for non-commercial use only, and any unauthorized commercial/profit behavior is prohibited. 


Meiker is a similar website to Picrew but it doesn’t have as many options and avatars to choose from. It still offers a solid amount of avatars for you to customize, including full-body ones.

The website is pretty light, clean-looking, and in English, which is a big plus.

You can browse various tags like:

  • anime
  • fantasy
  • goth
  • male
  • historical
  • dress-up-game
  • magical-girl
  • etc.

There is also a function to search according to tags or full text.

Meiker is sweet and straightforward, and reminds me of girls go games!

1. Picrew

Overall, Picrew is the #1 anime character creator website.

Both my websites—Geeky GF & 9 Tailed Kitsune—use anime avatars created on Picrew. Despite the fact that Picrew is in Japanese, I really enjoyed creating my anime avatar; it was also quite easy and enjoyable. Google Translate will assist you if you don’t understand something. Because I wanted to give my anime avatars distinct faces, outfits, and hairstyles, I spent a lot of time on it—probably more than I would want to admit.

So not only does Picrew have the most anime character avatars to choose from but you can also use many for commercial use for free! In any case, always translate what the artist says at the beginning because there you’ll find the terms and conditions for using the specific avatar.

Avatars offer various customizations depending on the author, but generally, it’s amazing with plenty of options.

Mostly, you can customize the following attributes:

  • Eye shape
  • Eye color
  • Iris type
  • Eyebrow shape
  • Eyebrow color
  • Lips shape
  • Lips color
  • Face expression
  • Hairstyle
  • Hair Color
  • Moles, Scars, Wrinkles
  • Various Accessories
  • Apparel
  • Hand gestures
  • Background


Each year, more anime character creator websites become accessible to a wider audience. Many of them are completely free and even offer commercial use of the created avatars on top of that, which might be something you are looking for.

Hopefully, you can pick some websites from the list I created that’ll suit your needs perfectly. Don’t forget to test all of them to pick the best one!
