In all anime/ manga/ light novels some of my favorite characters are badass girls. But those I love more are neutral characters. The type to switch sides when convenient, the ones that will help either good or bad for something in return, the ones who care only for themselves and their goals and disregard the rest of the world, the type that are wild cards that can defeat any good guy or bad guy., and especially those who try to keep the balance. My favorites are celestial being from Gundam 00. I love that they would attack any and all sides on earth to stop war, which I think makes them neutral ( just my opinion)




Others I Iove are :

Graham aker / gundam 00
kyubey / Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Homura akemi / madoka magica
Kyouko sakura/ madoka magica
accelerator / to aru majutsu no index
evangeline a.k. mcdowell / negima
greed / fma brotherhood
suiguintou / rozen maiden

my list goes on...

So which neutral characters do you love? oh reasons too ehe.

Ahh so you like Spinzaku, the one who switched sides 6 times. A douchebag, noone loves because he goes full emo due to his incompetence to do his job.

Did I mention he is the worst character in Code Geass?

I thought most people pegged Nina with that appellation.

I'm a fan of neutrals as well. The ones who switch sides as it suits them and eke out a living without having to submit themselves to a social hierarchy are great, though I'm not fond of 'balance keepers', unless it's in terms of mediation: a faction that strives to keep two warring nations in check is admirable, whereas one that looks at morality itself as a good vs evil balance and tries to maintain it is just misguided.

My favorite neutrals, though, are the apathetic ones. The characters who can't be bothered to take part because they don't care enough to put in the effort. I can relate to characters that would rather watch other people interact than take part themselves, or those whose interests simply lie elsewhere, who sequester themselves off to the side to do what they think really matters. I like it when these characters get pulled into the plot because somebody decided to mess with something they do care about, as it's always a gamble whether they end up kicking ass or being useless out of their element.

Regarding the Suzaku tangent, I rather liked him. His characterization as someone actually trying to be a good person, caught up in a war where every side's being, well, really douchey, was done quite well, and most of his decisions weren't difficult to sympathize with. He's definitely not neutral, since he's definitely not in it for himself, like most neutrals are. He's just got an alignment that's not clearly compatible with either side, and thus struggles with the matter of who he should be fighting for.

Favorite neutrals:

Elmer (Baccano!) - The king of happy apathy, himself. One of my favorite characters ever.
Kaiki (Monogatari) - Very much an 'out for number 1' character.
Lloyd (Code Geass) - It's all about the science. Literally.
Shinra (Durarara!) - Hardly even bats an eyelid at anything, unless Celty is involved.
Greed (FMA) - Badass and relatable.
Kimbley (FMA) - Hooray for sociopaths!
Kyon (Haruhi Suzumiya) - So normal it's awesome.
Taokaka (Blazblue) - Not my favorite BB character, but I respect that her motivations are pretty much completely random.
Ryuunosuke (Fate/Zero) - More sociopaths!
Ryuunosuke (Pet Girl of Sakurasou) - I like his stubborn non-involvement with things.
Ryuk (Death Note) - He's just there to kill time.
Saori (Oreimo) - Stays out of all the drama and is just an awesome friend instead.
Stein (Soul Eater) - Ambiguous sociopaths!
Jade (Tales of the Abyss) - Can you tell I like sociopaths?
