If you're going to include Shu you also have to include Simon from TTGL - their arcs were practically identical.

That is to say, if you do this, I shall fight you.

Well, Simon's not a total vagina. At least his balls dropped, and boy how they dropped. "LAWL"




What is that? Some kind of signature or something?

Consider the gauntlet thrown then. Despite being different from Shu, Simon can join the list as well on his own merits.

Its his fault Kamina died, He also sucked at governance, and this guy loses confidence over everything. He'd probably have another breakdown if he burned an omelet.

Okay I'll edit that, but even that is the truth.

Its the truth. These mediocre protags like him only live due to plot shield. Throw them in something where the author has no great sympathy, and they'd end up like Yamcha in his fight with a saibaman

An even bigger mess.
While I somehow agree, TTGL >>> most of our faves anyway so.

This post contains general plot spoilers of Guilty Crown and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Please. He's a pathetic Light Yagami knockoff who couldn't tie his shoes without a deus ex machina intervention. He's such a complete Mary Sue I'm not even sure what cliff would be easiest to throw him from.

I'M A TRAGIC HERO WHO'LL TAKE OVER THE WORLD BECAUSE I CAN'T HANDLE MY SISCON PROBLEMS.
HEY LOOK, I HAVE A SUPERPOWER. WATCH THE SCRIPT MAKE ME CLEVER! OR AN IDIOT!
DEPENDS ON THE DAY ALRIGHT?! LOOK, MY GEASS CAN MAKE IT RAIN DEUS EX MACHINAS!
WAIT THERE'S SOMETHING SHINY OVER THERE OH CRAP I KILLED IT WITH MY GEASS.
I'M A TRAGIC HERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just... no.

He might make a good villain for a Power Rangers episode. Maybe.

If all the Power Rangers were both blindfolded and inebriated.

(Wait, I'm the Black Knight in this skit? Shit).

Both Simon and Shu are introduced as losers, and pretty typical anti-heroes (which is to say, they don't really seem like the heroic type). But the strength of both is that neither -stayed- that way. Simon's difficulties as a leader reflected realities that shows like Code Geass sorely lack, where the protagonist is a badass because the script says he is.

Throughout TTGL Simon rises to meet and overcome new challenges, building his character in the process. Shu goes through a similar trip down the hero's journey: they both start low, get a hand up from someone they respect (who dies), fall into depression, overcome it, become leaders, get overthrown, redeem themselves, defeat the big bad, and retire.

In effect, both character arcs end in a similar place to where they began, but the character is better for it. And in the end, neither is as weak as people like to bandy about that they are. Guilty Crown was also a deconstruction, and while they messed up a lot they handled Shu's arc pretty well (unlike the general plot, which confused the hell out of me).

Ultimately what I mean to say is that while both might be annoying, neither was unredeemed.

Edit: That said, in a thread about annoying characters, I can completely understand both causing annoyance.

You are fun. Don't know why I haven't played with you much in the forums all this time. "LAWL"


Yup. I have nothing more to contribute here. Going back to the original topic before this derails to other characters and such, my pick is Shinji for the character that annoyed me more over the other choice, Yuno.
