Gintoki isn't #1 ==> List is Invalid. Just Kidding. It's more like:

Kiritsugu is #245 ==> List is invalid. Or:

Naruto is in top 10 ==> List is invalid. Or:

Top 3 basically count as one character ==> List is invalid. Or:

Is top 50 even worth mentioning? ==> This thread is useless. Or:

I don't even care that much, why am I really writing anything right now? ==> My post is pointless.

Here's an example of a semi-non-worthless thread:

Code Geass's Lelouch #1 on MyAnimeList

So far, he beats:
Everyone

As of the time this is posted he's at least 2000 votes above anyone else.

So what?

Here's the list: http://myanimelist.net/favorites.php?type=characters&limit=0

To be fair, it's pretty much still useless to me because I care about it only a little bit more than Kirito making #51.

Edit: Actually, now that I think about it, #51 is basically the perfect spot for Kirito. Because even if you think that making the top 50 is important (I don't), Kirito making #51 is like saying that he's almost important. That's like, the perfect characterization for SAO in general. Kirito was almost interesting. The show was almost good. The plotline was almost decent. They almost considered some interesting ideas. Asuna was almost a strong and independent heroine. Actually, I've changed my mind -- I now see what OP was getting at by making this thread: Kirito is almost worth taking note of. Good Topic!

This list is invalid mainly because it is not an analysis of everyone who views anime/manga, which would put Big 3 characters immediately at the top. This is a survey of people who use that website, that's all.

That doesnt make it invalid. Its top character voted by people that use myanimelist. If every voting had to include every single person that has ever watched anime, it would be impossible to make valid lists.

Actually this does make it invalid, given the title of the list was top anime characters. Since it is biased towards users of the site, it exclusively represents their opinions on anime.

I never said a true top character list was possible or even reasonable to obtain, however this fact alone does not make it a valid list. That would be like trying to call a thief law abiding when they are standing next to a mass murderer because the degree of evil, or in this case bias, is lesser than the other.

Basically, I was trying to nicely phrase that a lot of people who have different opinions, including myself, did not vote on this list before it was posted; therefore I, and probably they, have little to no interest in the contents of the list. I thought it appropriate to post it in a non-offensive manner, but you seemed to take it in a different way than intended.

If you have no interest in this, then just don't post. Speaking out on something means that it has at least piqued your interest.

Kirito is very overrated. He's such a boring character to watch when he's not holding his sword. And even then his badassery is just meh.

"When he's not holding his sword."
Not sure if joke or coincidence, but I laughed my rear end off reading this.

I think Kririto is pretty badass, but there's many other that would kick is ass from other animes!

I wouldn't even consider him badass in the slightest and him beating out iconic characters like Vegeta is pure stupid. SAO is just the Twilight for underage anime fans and everybody wishes they could be Gary Stu

He is a joke and so is that list, I believe there is far more deserving characters.
Also I'm sure this is highly due to the popularity of SAO
