I'm sorry if this is a duplicate, I looked and didn't find anything.

What I'm wanting to know which characters everyone thinks deserve a bigger role in their series and which ones they thing ended up just getting the short end of the stick.

I'll start things off with Myotismon from seasons 1 and 2 of Digimon. Myotismon starts off in season 1 as one of the few villains that comes very close to actually defeating the Digidestined. In fact, in the context of the series, the Digidestined are only able to beat him because of a fluke and even then they JUST manage to pull it off. Why I think he ended up getting the short end of the stick is behind the spoiler.



Krillan from DragonBall is another character I feel got shafted royally. In DragonBall he's a main character, he serves a legitimate purpose.In DragonBall Z however he starts getting pushed towards the back burner, he still maintains a valid place on the "Z-team" right up until the end of the Freiza saga, after that he really doesn't play THAT important of a role until the tail end of the android and Cell sagas. They even took his special attack, Destructo Disk and made it so that EVERYONE could use it. After that he drops off the character list and we barely see or hear anything of him, save for a few battles where he is at best a "space filler" character, until a few episodes in GT.

Shinn Asuka from Gundam Seed Destiny is on my list as well, even though Seed Destiny revolves around him, it's really all about Kira. He's a supporting character in his own series.

Those are mine, who are yours?

I suppose Hiro, from Soul Eater should be in the Anime/Manga some more. One episode, and one Omake...amazing... :blink:

Oh, and Mello and Matt should've gotten more screen time...but then they decided to die.

In all truth, they need to make an Anime out of Kieli and Deadman Wonderland...Best. Manga. Ever.

I think Goku's other friends like Tien, Yamcha, Chiaotzu, should have some air time. Don't know much about them.
there's more, but I can't think of any right now.

DragonBall Z really ticked me off when I realized that all the fully human characters had been basically written out of the show. All the focus was given to the Saiyans with their ridiculous god-like powers. For once I wanted to see one human characters Mystic17 mentioned kicking some butt and at least helping to save the day. Especially Krillin, he was my favorite character!

Here's a good one: Nonette Enneagram from Code Geass. She's one of the Knights of the Round, and yet she's seen only once during the entire show, she doesn't even get a talking part! She does at least appear in the video game, not that that does me any good since the game is not, and probably never will be, sold in America.

Majority of the casts from Durarara seems to have suffered from a lack of either a decent character development or screentime. Some of the cooler casts literally got a screentime of 5~10 minutes, so I was somewhat disappointed by that - Brains Base should, and probably will make a second season, so I'm hoping the other characters finally get their development which they deserve.
