Exactly what the title suggests share what your ideal protagonist is? for me I would want someone who starts of weak and eventually gets super powerful.......o wait that's just ever shonen jump character lol.

Well I would honestly like to have a protagonist who fights well based on his or her instincts and utilizes whatever is around him to the best of his own abilities without having to get a super power up every season. So pretty much someone like Toma from Toaru Majutsu no Index. So whom would your ideal protagonist be or whom would you want more Anime characters to take after?

Byronic Heroes/Anti-Heroes

Because of their flawed thinking, their physical and psychological vulnerability, they are more down to earth and easier to relate than those stupidly idealistic characters.

Can't think of anyone off the top of my head but any character with these traits:

- badass style who speaks his mind without worrying what others thinks of him or her
- anti-heroes
- intelligent characters who thinks things through

Sort of. Characters like Yakumo Saito from Psychic Detective Yakumo, the anti-hero Lucy from Elfen Lied, and Rika from Higurashi are ones that I tend to like.

Also, the recent Uryu from Future Diary and one of the only tsundere characters I can stand...Kurisu Makise from Steins;Gate are worth mentioning.

Goku from Dragon Ball was a role model for males everywhere because he was essentially a "karate-bum" (as his neighbors call it). His motivation to fight baddies isn't to claim the top spot or redemption, he fought for the fun of it and to test his limits. At the surface he is real simple but when in battle, he is faced with several inner contradictions within his nature showing there's a surprising amount of layer to his character.

Sakura Kinomoto-dono would be mine, on a personal level, not on an "everyone is like that" level.

Gotta give bro props! Homie not only became the school's stud, but he also smashed an ENTIRE clique of girls SIMULTANEOUSLY. The only Male harem protagonist with an ACTUAL teenage libido. Though he should have been more clear with his first GF and Sekai.. better yet should have just dropped them both lol. Or atleast stuck with Katsura.. and work things out. But I feel for him, I made the same mistakes (well except for getting a girl preggo and getting my existence snubbed out). He was just a lost, confused; viciously horny teenage school boy.
