In the group, Shingan Crimsonz Aion is the lion guitarist of the group while the other one is Rom, who is the leopard drummer of the group. Since they are bandmates and are in the same feline family, why not have them both in our 8th place. Aion is one of those characters who like to strike poses. He looks at himself with high regard and loves any attention that is given to him.
Meanwhile, Rom is the most responsible and most persuasive out of the group. Even though he is not the leader of the group by name, he acts as if he is one.

7. Boris Airay from Heart no Kuni no Alice: Wonderful Wonder World
This anime is of the series that got inspired by the Alice in Wonderland theme. The basic plot is not that different from the original. Our heroine’s name is Alice, who found herself waking up in a world created by Quin Rose, that is different from what she knows. As she starts her adventure to get back to her own world, she meets different characters that will give her some hint of the purpose of why she is in wonderland.
One character that Alice meets is Airay, Boris who is based on Cheshire cat. Like its original counterpart, he loves riddles and is quite a mischievous character. What makes him an interesting character is that he loves to create and make weapons. Swords, guns, axes to bombs, you name it, he can make it! Just like any cat, he is laid back, carefree, and pursues anything that annoys him.
6. Cheshire Cat from Pandora Hearts
Also one of our Cheshire cats, Cheshire and Boris from Heart no Kuni looks similar. They are like two peas in a pod, especially since they are based on Carroll’s Cheshire cat. Similar they may be, Pandora’s Cheshire exhibits more of a darker persona. Prior to the beginning of the series, he was Alice’s precious pet cat who once held the truth from 100 years ago in his bell that was given to him by Alice.
Cheshire has a lot of forms in which they all resemble a cat. Towards the intention, he can be very sweet and affectionate but once he sees the displeased intention in something, he will not hesitate to shed blood to wipe away anything that threatens his master’s happiness. His darker form makes him one of the hard-to-reach types.
5. Schrodinger from Hellsing Ultimate

The Major seems to emit a sense of affection for Schrodinger, akin to the relationship of a cat owner who could never be angry towards him.
He was named and referenced after Schrodinger’s cat experiment in that he can be everywhere and nowhere. To simply put when he thinks and believes in that certain mindset, then it will be. It is quite complicated in a way, but this is what makes him one of the almighty characters in Hellsing besides Alucard. In spite of being on the villain's side, what is not to like about Schrodinger? Schrodinger is cute, charming, and playful, just what we would expect from such a likable character of the series.
