In your perspective, what do you think makes a strong character?
You can give examples of a strong character in an anime or in real life.

What traits do "strong" characters tend to have?.

To be frank, this could even go as far as what makes a "well-written" character in anime, books, or any show if anyone's interested in discussing that.

I like this question.

To me, flawed characters are the strongest. They keep pushing through despite their weaknesses. Perfect characters may seem strong, but in reality they're one-dimensional.

Strong characters also tend to be the ones that have noticeably changed by the end. They've been through it all and it shows.

You don't need much to be a strong character, really. In fact, a strong one should be one that can't be categorized. You can't just take into account the character, though. The setting, location, and the populous around them should also be considered. Once that's all figured out, then can you mold decent characters. Yes, a strong character is never a one man team, but is capable of maintaining oneself if put outside their comfort zone to an extent.





(Only one genre really came to mind for some reason, odd )

TL:DR
A strong character is a unique character that can't be categorized nor entirely predictable. They don't necessarily need to be changed either by experiences, but prepared for another occurrence of the like.

The strong characters sometimes seem incredibly meek and mild, but as the story unfolds so does the underlying strength of presence and mind,
they stand up and fight the good fight against incredible odds and win..

Sometimes they are the underdog, the undesirable, the Naruto-child types, but as chapter leads to chapter they blossom, and sometimes the 'fate'
of their world lies in the strength of the demon cast inside of themselves...

The bad boy types, the 'I don't give a damn types"...like Inuyasha, who learn to give of themselves, they fight not only to
protect others, but must fight what has ravished them from birth...in a nutshell, they learn to love, and in return, they would die for the friends
and lover..

enough, I could go on and on...

i think a strong character is someone who has the power to destroy everything but instead sacrifices himself for others

Strong character in real life: Perseverance, patience and confidence

Strong characterization in anime/fiction: I like philosophical characters, because they make me reflect/think about philosophies, e.g. Chrollo from HunterxHunter, Light from Death Note, and Madara from Naruto.

Quirky and eccentric characters. Examples of quirky characters would be... Amelie from the movie Amelie, a lot of characters from HxH are quirky/eccentric (Hisoka, Chrollo, Killua, Gon's dad, Palm), the main characters from Flowers of Evil, and L from Death Note.
