Anime and fantasy football might not seem closely linked, but they share some surprising things in common!

Fans of both anime and football become attached to their favorite characters/players; value things like action-packed moments, plot twists, and defeating enemies; and enjoy connecting with other fans.

There are even plenty of anime where sports play a huge role, with the main story focusing on characters participating in a tournament and facing obstacles like injuries.[1]

And, of course, both are enjoyed by millions of fans. In 2021, the anime industry’s revenue outside of Japan was estimated above $13 million,[2] while fantasy football raked in a cool $18 billion in the U.S. in 2020.[3]

If you’re into both anime and fantasy football, finding a team name that combines the two can be the perfect option for you! Choose from our list of more than 50 options below, or scroll past the list for tips to help you create your own ideas.

How to Create Your Own Anime Fantasy Football Team Names

If none of the options on our list are perfect for your team, use the following tips to create your own anime-inspired fantasy football team names:

  • Make a list of your favorite anime. A list of favorites can be a great starting point to find your team name. You can use a play on one of the titles from the list, get inspiration from a favorite character, or use an iconic quote.
  • Create a pun based on your favorite player’s name. Team names using a player’s name are classic in fantasy football. Combine a player’s name with your favorite character, insert their name into an anime title, or make other clever references to the player’s name. Look for words that rhyme with the name that you can swap out like “Dragon Ball Zeke” (created from “Dragon Ball Z”).
  • Consider your league. If you’re in an employee league with your coworkers, you might want something that combines your line of work, anime, and football all into one. If your league is entirely made up of anime lovers, you can use more obscure references that only serious fans would understand. You should also consider what’s appropriate for your league — whether it’s okay to use harsh language or crude humor, for example.
