9. Joseph And Caesar (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure)

There are several iconic duos in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but the couple we discuss today is Joseph Joestar and Caesar Zeppeli. Like Ash and Pikachu, these two guys also did not have a great start. They even fought and began to maintain a less-than-friendly term. (2)

However, as the story continues, these two become two peas in a pod. And in the end, Caesar eventually sacrificed his own life to get the antidote for his ultimate best friend, which deeply strengthened and highlighted their golden friendship.

8. Meliodas And Ban (Seven Deadly Sins)

Although the Seven Deadly Sins has reached its end in the first three months of 2020, its anime still keeps going, and one of the good points that attract viewers is the lovely friendship between Ban and Meliodas. (3)

These two companions share the same thoughts and minds, making them the perfect couple in every aspect. It's undeniable that they are on the same wavelength most of the time, supporting each other through matters. 
With their strength, Ban and Meliodas have proven to be one of the most powerful duos in the whole anime.

7. L. And Light (Death Note)

You may be surprised when we include L. and Light in this ranking, as they are not technically best friends. However, their chemistry makes them a powerful duo, which wins them a spot on this list.

L. And Light (Death Note)

L. and Light begin their relationship as enemies. Light's successful approach to Death Note, which turns him into a heartless serial killer, has made L become the person who catches him.

However, L. and Light eventually team up against Kira throughout many conflicting problems. With both gentlemen having a smart brain, their intelligence keeps them close and bonded for a short time.

6. Naruto And Sasuke (Naruto)

Naruto is one of a few anime that focuses entirely on the friendship of Naruto and Sasuke. Of course, there are stories and events revolving around these two personalities, but in all, the series discovers and nourishes the friendship of Sasuke and Naruto.

When Sasuke decided to leave the village to strengthen his power, all the villagers turned back on him except for Naruto, which marked the beginning of a meaningful friendship. 

Naruto And Sasuke (Naruto)

Naruto promised to bring back Sasuke from the dark, and he did mark his words. He taught Sasuke the true, important meaning of companionship, and there were more reasons to live than he thought it would.

5. Caiman And Nikaido (Dorohedoro)

We would love to discuss the special features of Dorohedoro's main characters: Caiman and Nikaido. Their fate saw a twist when Caiman's head turned into a lizard due to an unlucky event. (4)

However, despite the difficulties, these two friends go through thick and thin, as they come together strong to beat evil magicians and, in the end, find out the cure for Caiman.

Caiman And Nikaido (Dorohedoro)

The lovely thing about these two characters is that they especially care about each other, especially how Nikaido never spilled a word of compliance towards Caiman. If your friend's head turned into a lizard's, would you take the time to help them find the cure like these two?

4. Edward And Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

This best friend duo is quite distinct from others, as they develop their relationship from siblings to best of friends.

Edward And Alphonse Elric

In anime films, when a couple or a relationship is displayed, two or more strangers are usually bumping into each other. However, that detail is excessive in the case of Edward and Alphonse Elric.

These siblings have been through a lot together, and their unwavering love for each other has helped them pull through it all. The brothers shared pain and joy, which made their bond even stronger.

Edward And Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Since Edward and Alphonse are siblings, they have the relative-blood relationship that makes them love and care for each other, to the point that one assists another in pulling everything off.

Their bonds get even stronger than ever by coming through great and bad, and that's something both of them are precious for.

3. Puck And Guts (Berserk)

In the past, Guts suffered from horrible trauma, which made him unfriendly toward everyone, and as a result, no one wanted to be friends with him. The only thing that matters to Guts is being stronger day by day.

Puck And Guts (Berserk)

To make the matter worse, Gambino's betrayal has left Guts in full doubt to the world until Band of Hawk's appearance makes the change. However, the happiness doesn't last for long as Griffith's betrayal ruined it all, and it seems like Guts has lost all his loved ones.

Coming to a bar, Guts luckily met Puck, whose life he saved. Guts refuses to be friends with Puck, having not recovered from the pain, and Puck's consistency in sticking with this sword guy has made these two friends for a while.  In the end, Puck helps Guts recover from his past trauma.

2. Gintoki And Katsura (Gintama)

Although separated physically, Gintori and Katsura shared a spiritual miracle bond as they always think of and respect each other, though walking on different journeys.

Gintoki And Katsura

In the anime, the other half will pop out randomly to save the other's life from danger, and that's how they keep their relationship tight.

1. The Straw Hats (One Piece)

Last but not least, this team cannot be considered a duo, but we cannot forget how great and bonding this team is when mentioning anime friendship.

The Straw Hats

No one can deny that under the influence of Monkey D. Luffy, The Straw Hat Pirates create a big family. They have stayed with each other through the hardest challenges, traveling through numerous islands to reach their ultimate goal. (5)

This One Piece team has shown that no matter who they are and where they are from, they stay with their loved ones and will go any distance to protect the lives of their loved ones.
