I've got a tie between two:

Character: Jake Barnes

Book: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

and

Character: Dunstable "Dunstan" Ramsey

Book: Fifth Business by Robertson Davies

Explanation: My favorite aspect of written fiction is that you can say so much about a character by the way they narrate. Unlike most mediums, where I generally grow more attached to the more interesting supporting characters than protagonists, novels invite me to explore the narrator moreso than the other characters. The best thing about both of these narrators is that they're written in such a way that their outward 'surface' opinions are stated, but their actual motivations and thoughts are hidden. Implying opinions other than those stated from the narrator is a difficult feat, and when it's done well, as it has been in both these cases, the narrating character comes across as truly real.

character: spider-man

series:spider-man comics

explanation: spider-man is just a amazing character who's been through so much crap he lost his parents, uncle, his aunt (then the brand new day series happened), and his first love and he still continues to fight for the greater good and make wise cracks he is just a admirable guy, plus he might be the bravest hero I know even though he is one of the weaker heroes I mean there are scenes like the one from avengers vs x-men and there's infinity gauntlet where he helped fight someone who was literally a God anyone with that much balls deserves to be my favorite non anime hero

A three-way tie, and in no particular order:

1) Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov (Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky)
2) Pip (Great Expectations by Dickens)
3) Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre by C. Brönte)

FlamingoKnight: You my friend nailed it. Mat Cauthon is when of my favorite characters of all time. Especially when he fights Galad and Gawyn.

Character: Butler

Series: Artemis Fowl

I really loved Butler throughout the entire series. He works to not only keep Artemis safe, but also to steer him in the right direction as he grows up. He has his fair share of purely badass moments and touching ones as well. He is is one hell of a butler and one hell of a friend to the Fowls.

Bartimaeus from the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Johnathon Stroud. That character is just the most brilliant character I have ever read. (except for the anime character Kamijou Touma...)
