Once in a while, you saw an anime where main character inherited some godly powers. You thought to yourself, this is great, he(she) is going to go uber and pwn everyone or change the stupid world around him. Guess what half way through the anime, nothing happens, either his cowardice get the best of him, or he is just too indecisive to do any things. Either way it makes you face-palm yourself and shake your head in disgust. Who is your most pathetic main characters?




-------spoiler------------
Currently I'm watching Guilty Crown, and god the MC is so awful, 10 episodes in why can't you just pull Lelouch and wreak havoc.

back to main point, the most pathetic MC i ever seen is Yuki. When you have a bad-ass girlfriend by your side, why not use her to the best of her potential, instead of pretending Buddha for the half of the series?

I would probably have to say:
Yukiteru Amano aka Yuki
-from Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)-



or


Haruyuki Arita
-from Accel World (Akuseru Wārudo)-



-edit-



and from what I can remember,
Shu Ouma
-from Guilty Crown (Giruti Kuraun)-


was pretty bad.

Makoto from School Days was pretty pathetic, in a different sense.

I still don't understand why everyone hates Shinji so much for being a realistic teenage boy thrown into a shitty situation. I found it interesting actually to have a character with so many flaws and a complete 180 change from the typical shounen hero, brave and optimistic.

As for actual crappy main characters, it'd be easier to list all the ones who weren't boring or irritating.

Yuu Goutou from Noein. His future version is fine. His present version is insufferable.

I rather have a heroic brave shounen hero who is optimistic than a guy who whines for 90% of the episode and saying it isn't my fault.

shinji is a character that no matter how objectively (for me) a person looks at him, subjectively he gets under your skin in a very profound manner. If shinji had toned the emotional breakdowns down a notch I would have actually enjoyed the eva series. Eva franchise is like the Haruhi franchise which I think the storyboard is brilliant but alas the protagonists in both are just annoying as hell.

Can't understand why ppl hate Shinji. He puts his life in danger to pilot the Eva and still, nobody trusts him and gives a damn about his feeling. Beside the ability to pilot the Eva, he is just an ordinary boy in a fucked up world with no special power.

Kid Muscle in "Ultimate Muscle"

Why does he exist...? Why did this show ever exist...? Why does the English dubbing make it a thousand times worse...?

My brain throbs just thinking about how retarded and useless he is, I don't care how many fights he wins, I hated him.

WHY DID I EVEN WATCH THAT SHOW?! Oh god I need some headache tablets...

If people hate Shinji Ikari that just means he did his job perfectly.

Anyway, mine is the MC of Maken-Ki!; I don't remember his name and I don't want to.

I was gonna post Shinji Ikari from NGE, but since that's already been posted like 3 times...

...I'd say Hideki Motosuwa from Chobits. I mean, he sleeps during class, talks to himself a lot, and is quite perverted. Most of this is due to his country lifestyle and he's also a genuinely nice person so I guess I could let it slide. But still...

This.

Shinji is a representation of that part of ourselves no one wants to acknowledge exists.
