If you don't like any of these options, list and explain your option below.

List your favorite anime, manga, comic, video game, novel, television series, or movie.
List the full name of the character as well

Explain in your very own opinion on why you chose your option.
Let me know if a thread like this one exist.


Thanks a bunches.

Anti hero, like Riddick. They do good, but it's for them. They are the most honest. That's why I like the anti-hero.

Anti-heroes and villains are in the same boat for me depending on how the anti-heroes are portrayed.

I don't like the Batman type of anti-hero because their psychological structure is so flawed that it becomes outright embarrassing to watch. Batman, as Hollywood has portrayed him, is basically someone who pretends to be detached while being more or less oblivious of how much of a self-righteous hypocrite he is. And it really upsets me, the thought that someone so disgusting can make a difference, to be honest. Regardless of the fact that Batman, if he existed, could and possibly would kick my ass, I would have to tell him how much of a narrow-minded piece of shit he is and slap him in the mouth.I would gladly take that beating if it meant relaying this important piece of information to him. But most people love him, because he is retarded just like them, so basically I have no say in it. But everyone should be allowed to have their own favorite anti-hero. If they chose this pretentious prick, then fine, I'll just have to deal with it.

I would rather go with something a little more honest. Instead of the pretentious douchebag anti-hero, I will have to go with the honest asshole, such as Dr. House (House M.D.), and Marion Snow (Lockout). I can even stretch it to something a little more crazy, like Deadpool, but then we're bordering the more villainous type, like The Joker.

Self-righteous heroes who can only see how the world should be instead of how the world really is? No thanks. I shove them in under the Batman category.

Sidekicks/supporting characters? Meh. They are mostly there to be in the way.

Wow. I rather NOT have a tragic villain in my form of fiction.

I care more about character traits than about the role a character plays in a work. I love characters who have a very strong sense of honor/duty, who will make the choice that is consistent with their internal moral code (even if it's definitely not the easy choice), and who then have to deal with the cost of their choice. A couple of my favorite examples from anime are Itachi from Naruto (even though I don't really like the show, I love Itachi as a character) and Byakuya from Bleach. Some of my favorites from other literature include Seregil from Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series and Captain Nemo from Jules Verne's 20000 Leagues under the Sea (though Nemo is a slightly different version of this).

Makes sense though majority of the those characters fit what role. I understand the traits matter Which role are you leaning towards more when it comes to those traits?

This probably makes no sense.

For some reason I always end up wanting to see the side characters relationship in shows rather then the main couple.

Examples:
Ryu and Chizuru- Kimi ni Todeke
Jin and Misaki- The Pet Girl of Sakurasou
Yusaku and the chick who got whooped and went to America -Toradora

Yeah, I just like side characters.

I'm torn between hero and anti-hero. I seem to have about equal numbers of each with a few villains thrown in.

Ah okay. I don't mind anti-heroes but I'm always questioning that villain within the story more so.
