If you read the 4th topic where it talks about shounen protagonists never supposedly killing anybody, I'm sure some of you will disagree. Aside from Fist of The North Star, I've read/watched shounen manga/anime in which (some) protagonists have killed or not afraid to kill (humans and non-humans) and not make excuses, such as:

Saiyuki
Kuroshitsuji (can't decide who can be more cruel--Ciel or Sebastian)
Seikon No Qwaser
Death Note
Probably Yu Yu Hakusho (Hiei and Kurama, especially)
Hunter X Hunter (Killua and Kurapika)

You guys know any less "innocent" or less "clean" protagonists in shounen?

I think you could include Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. We see Jojo killing zombies.

About HxH

Toriko kills animals/beasts all the time

I'm still somewhat new to HxH so I'm only watching the remake.

Ichigo Kurosaki has come very close. Countless times. And Yuuki from Mirai Nikki if breaking cell phones count.

Its true that they sometimes kill, but in many animes they dont. Usually the villain just disappear from the anime after he is knocked unconscious in the battle.

Who has Naruto killed? He battles with them and someone else, usually Kakashi, finishes the job.

I don't think white Zetsus count.

Random ninjas and movie villians...

That's a good question really, but he does kill people in the show.

Killua in Hunter x Hunter kills all kinds of people. During the hunter test he ripped a guy's heart out with his bare hand.

I stand corrected. Naruto has in fact killed. Since it's so infrequent I forgot.
