There's this character who in the manga is badass, fantastic, awesome, or greatly developed. But when the manga got adapted into an anime, the character became entirely different from the manga version of themselves. And I don't mean in a good way either. Do you know any character like that?


What do you think?

In the Rurouni Kenshin anime, Kenshin was a bit of a goody-goody character with a lot of annoying verbal tics. In the manga, he talks like a normal person and has a great sense of sarcasm that's almost entirely absent from the anime.

(Disclaimer: I'm only talking about the English dub of the anime that aired on Toonami in the US and the Viz manga translation. I have no idea what Kenshin's character is like in other countries.)

Emiya Shirou, especially in the 2006 Deen adaptation of Fate/Stay Night. Though it was originally a VN, not a manga, I believe it's close enough to apply for this thread.
