7/10 Hawk – 7 deadly sins

The Hawk is still one of the most popular pets because it is no ordinary creature. Hawk is a creature that looks like a pig but not like one. In fact, he comes from Purgatory, and somewhere along the way, he ends up with Meliodas, the main hero in 7 deadly sins The sin of anger.

Hawk usually hangs out around Meliodas, so he works at Meliodas’ bar as his “guardian.” His job is basically to eat the scraps and leftovers of bar customers. The Hawk is quite small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for with confidence, and it often boasts of its strength and power.

6/10 Sadaharu – Gintama

Sadaharu is a giant white dog, originally an Inugami, a dog deity, who was abandoned by his previous owners because they were no longer able to take care of him.

However, as they all approached, his demeanor receded.

Sadaharu is incredibly loyal to his family, and while he may not seem to be, he is quite intelligent. However, the feature that makes him iconic (aside from being a giant fluffy dog) is his tendency to bite people’s heads, whether they are part of the Yorozuya or strangers.

5/10 Puar – Dragon Ball

Puar is a cat-like animal belonging to the Yamcha. Puar is unconditionally loyal to its owner and loves it deeply. The two met when he was walking at the age of fourteen. After that, they became completely inseparable. Wherever one would find a bouar, Yamcha was not far behind.

In addition, Puar has the ability to change shape. However, this strength is not the only thing that makes it unique. Puar is one of the most popular pets in the anime because he has been there for his owner through it all. He watches Yamcha and expresses his concern when he gets hurt. Their friendship is very special to him.

4/10 Akamaru – Naruto

When Akamaru was a puppy, he was small enough that his owner, Kiba Inuzuka, could carry him on his head. However, as he got older, his size grew to the point that Kiba could no longer carry him. Instead, Akamaru carried his owner on his back. The bond between the two is especially strong because Kiba raised Akamaru.

Like many owners of the cartoon and their pets, the two cannot live without each other. Akamaru is overprotective and totally possessive of his best friend. It’s also there for Kiba whenever he needs it. For example, Akamura kept watching when he cheated on Kiba in his exam. Needless to say, Akamaru is very loyal to his owner.

3/10 Pikachu – Pokemon

Needless to say, Pikachu is one of the most popular pets in the anime world. However, the most famous and iconic Pikachu is the one that belongs to Ash Ketchum. Their relationship is so strong and so full of love that it’s almost impossible to believe that it didn’t start this way.

2/10 Happy – Fairy Tail

Happy is one of the most popular pets in the anime, and that’s not just because of his vibrant blue colour. It is a bypass that belongs to Natsu Dragneel, a mage of the Fairy Tail Guild. Happy is just as his name describes. He is optimistic, loyal to his family and has the ability to fly.

1/10 Frosch – Fairy Tail

Like Happy, Frosch is an Exceed belonging to Rogue, a mage of the Sabertooth Guild. This also means that Frosch is part of the Sabertooth Guild as well. Frosch was never given a specific gender. Frosh is small and green, always wearing a pink frog-like suit.

Similar to Happy, Frosch can fly. However, unlike Happy, Frosch is not independent or rude. When Frosch gets lost in one episode, Exceed tries his best to get him home. However, Frosch is so innocent and so dependent on Rogue that it takes him a long time to get back. There was nothing to worry about because Rogue was watching his little friend from afar, even though this hurt him because he couldn’t help it.
