Everyone loves when a anime character makes an appearance in another anime’s world or even beyond that, so today I decided to compile a list of 10 Anime crossover cameos that I believe you may or may not have missed….
Chiaotzu In Naruto
It turns out that in the early pages of the Naruto manga, a Dragon Ball character may have infiltrated the hidden leaf village. If you look at the top left corner of the picture, you will see Chiaotzu, or to be more precise, Chiaotzu’s face chilling on the wall.
But I’m sure your ninja skills caught sight of this already.
Team Konohamaru In Ben 10
I wouldn’t have believed it either but this in fact actually happened. In an Christmas special episode, the entire team members, Konohamaru, Udon, and Moegi all made an appearance as innocent grandchildren.
I remember when I first watched this episode and thought nothing of it. Now my mind is blown by how I missed this.
Shikamaru and Choji Take A Trip!
It’s even more convincing that the guy resembling Choji is eating chips, something Choji is well known for.
Dragon Ball Game!
I’m gonna take a guess and say it’s better that Ultimate Tenkaichi.
Gohan Has His Own Product Advertisement.
In an tv ad, a character that looks just like Gohan made an appearance in a Big Kids Citrus Punch ad in Spain I believe.
Whether or not this was intended is yet to be known but it’s still cool regardless.
Goku Taking The Bus?
In an episode of Setona, if you pay close attention, you will see a very iconic hairstyle hidden among the crowd.
Guess ChiChi finally made Goku get a real job and be normal for once.
Pikachu Has Betrayed Ash!
During a really short scene in Osmosis Jones, a random germ appears to be holding a Pikachu in his arms. How in the world I missed this is beyond me.
So those this confirm that Pokemon are really microorganism living in our bodies? The mystery continues I guess.
Ash Taking A Break From Training Pokemons?
I watched a lot of the Kids Next Door show, so the fact that I missed such a obvious cameo brings great shame upon my 90’s kid street cred. At least Ash seems to be enjoying himself.
I wonder where Pikachu is, I don’t see…wait a minute? Nah…could it be?
Stan Lee Is Truly Everywhere
It doesn’t matter whether it involves Marvel or not, if there’s a person that calls themselves a hero, whether it be in a movie, tv or even anime, Stan Lee must make a cameo appearance. In this case, he is just chilling in a scene of Heroman.
You gotta love Stan Lee, he is the greatest. Yes, technically Stan Lee ain’t anime, but when you have a history of creating some of the most beloved comic book heroes ever grace the earth, he get’s a pass for today.
Cross Anime Meet Up!
During an episode in Lucky Star where two girls spend time among cosplayers, several well known anime characters made an appearance including Guile from Street Fighter, Robin from One Piece, Edward and Alphonse Elric from Full Metal Alchemist and more.
There’s more where that came from too.
Lastly Gintama….That Is All That Needs To Be Said!
Gintama didn’t necessary make any cameos in another anime per say and since he is obviously known for his constant referring of several anime, I didn’t initially want to pick from his series since it’s really obvious, but he has made so many reference to other anime that I had to at least give him at least an honorable mention.
And that’s it. This is the first time I have done something like this so I hope you enjoyed your time reading this Top 10 or whatever you want to call it. If you found this informative, please share with your fellow Otakus and Weebos.
