5 Anime Characters Who Betrayed His Own Friends


Betrayal is indeed a very painful thing. Especially if the betrayal was committed by the most trusted person. Meanwhile, betrayal is often made a major topic in anime series .

The reasons are also quite diverse, ranging from getting power to being triggered by situations. Well, this time, the author has summarized five anime characters who betrayed their own best friend. Curious who the characters are? Check out the following reviews.


1. Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto)
Sasuke Uchiha was first introduced as one of the main protagonists in the Naruto series , joining Team 7 alongside Naruto and Sakura. From the start, Sasuke had revealed that his main goal was to avenge his brother, Itachi Uchiha, who had massacred the Uchiha clan.

Sasuke’s betrayal began when he fought Naruto on the hospital roof. At that moment, Sasuke realized that Naruto had grown further than him. Feeling that he would not grow stronger by staying in Konoha, Sasuke betrayed his friends and his village to join Orochimaru.


2. Griffith (Berserk)
In the beginning, Griffith was one of Guts’ best friends. Although they still make a living by fighting, but Griffith has brought Guts to a happiness he has never felt.

Unfortunately, this did not last long, because in the end Griffith sacrificed his own troops and friends to be reborn as Femto, a member of the Hand of God.


3. Shiro (Deadman Wonderland)
Shiro has been friends with Ganta since the two of them were small. However, after Ganta entered his teens, Ganta had absolutely no memory of his childhood friend. Therefore, Shiro uses his identity as the Red Man and slaughters all of Ganta’s classmates to drag Ganta to Deadman Wonderland.

Since Ganta is the only person who has seen the Red Man, Ganta has ambitions to avenge the mysterious figure. However, Ganta couldn’t do anything about it after learning that the Red Man was his childhood friend.

4. Sosuke Aizen (Bleach)
There is no doubt that Sosuke Aizen is one of the greatest villains and traitors ever in the Bleach series . Aizen committed all his crimes while hiding behind the figure of a 5th Division Captain in the Gotei 13.

Aizen has not only betrayed the Shinigami, but he has also betrayed Momo Hinamori who has faithfully served him. It’s sad again, Aizen never considered Momo as his closest person or confidant.

5. Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover (Attack on Titan)
Attack on Titan fans will remember the moment when Reiner and Bertholdt revealed their true identities. Although Levi and his friends had suspected that there were spies in the Reconnaissance Army, this was very surprising because the betrayal was carried out by two of Eren’s closest people.

It is revealed that Reiner and Bertholdt are Marley’s warriors sent to Paradis to steal the Founding Titan’s power. As the possessors of the Armored Titan and Colossal Titan powers, Reiner and Bertholdt are indirectly responsible for the death of Eren’s mother.

The betrayal of the five characters above is indeed very cruel. Moreover, the betrayal was committed to those closest to them. Even so, some of them were simply victims of the situation, so it was hard to blame them. What do you think?
