Everyone who loves anime always has a favorite character. They may be funny. You may like how they look. You might just feel a connection to that character because of something they are going through or how they act. Whatever the reason may be they are your FAVORITE CHARACTER. I say that the character's personality is what really makes the character. Goku is goofy....Sasuke Uchiha is serious....Light Yagami is devious.....and so forth. We may all have our favorite character, but what is your favorite character based on their personality? Also what type of personality do you like the best?

My favorite characters are usually the intelligent, cute, and sensitive males. (RARELY a female) I <3 men
Examples: Gohan (DBZ) Kurama (YuYu Hakuso), and Neji Hyuga (Naruto)
However my favorite character personalities are the ones who are goofy and make me bust a gut laughing.
My favorite characters based on their personalities:
Rock Lee (Naruto) and Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin (OHSHC)

So what are some of yours?

I think kids like their character "badass" because they are kids, they want someone rebellious, arrogant or careless, because its what they want to be, even if the character is just cartoonish or plain.

It's quiet funny because when you read about character development most people will tell you that a circular character (someone who change) is going to be the most human and the most loved. While you see that the most loved characters are just plain, they never evolve and in worst cases are just cartoonish.

Well maybe there's a difference between beloved and favorite characters? I mean, dynamic characters are much easier to relate to and
"love," but when you look back at a series and pinpoint a favorite character, it's going to be the one that you most enjoyed watching or reading about. That's not often going to be the humanistic, emotionally conflicted character; it's going to be the awesome, totally cool, idealistic character.

Yeah, its going to be the awesome and cool. Look at the X-men cartoon serie. Look at the X-men in general (wolverine) or look Dark Knight of Nolan, everyone love the Joker of Nolan, while the entire movie is not about him but rather about Batman.

People just love something that is "cool" or "badass".

Maybe it has something to do with power and control too? Badasses usually either have or put on a ruse of power that allows them to take control of a situation, whether it's physical might or an overwhelming/intimidating demeanor. The insensitive types appear to have complete control over their emotions and feelings, something most people struggle with. Why do we consider people "awesome" and "cool?" They have mighty power, or they have some sort of control over their life and success.

I think that mostly these traits are something that has to do with society. When someone sees a character ignoring the laws, it stirs something inside of them, making them wish subconsiously that they can do that because society looks down on it. Have you ever disobeyed your mother just because you didn't like what she was telling you to do? Didn't you get a small thrill out of doing it? Have you ever snuck out?

These feelings build up and by seeing someone doing something rebellious, one subconsiously remembers those feelings and it triggers in their mind the urge to like the character and to be excited by what they are doing because they wish they could do it themselves. It helps them to relate to the character.

Many socially inept people could take this to heart, changing how they act to normal people so they can better relate to the character. There are many people who see these characters and feel they deserve to act that way. Some even think they are that character. Yes, this is an extreme, but hey. I like extremes.

Now, a character needs a good background and a good story for it to stick in the minds of the viewers/readers. Even if they have a good personality and would be really likeable characters, they need to have a background and a part in the show that the viewers can kind of relate to in different ways. If they didn't you wouldn't have a show that people are willing to watch, much less learn about the characters enough to like them.

I kind of agree with what jaidrun says but I think its more than just a simple sense of rebellion that these characters spark. I think 'unrelenting' is a good word for these types of characters but I think uncomrpromising is a better one. These characters have clear values and goals and they do not yield or change for anyone and I think that is why they are so compelling. Watching them we can imagine that one day we will have the courage and power to stand up for exactly what we believe and take what we want, no compromise for anything. Although the bad guys are often the kind of characters with these traits a good example that springs to mind is edward from full metal alchemist. Even though eveyone tells him and his brother that they can't do this or that and they can't be unwilling to kill they are uncompromising in their quest and in their morals, making Ed a very appealing character.

I don't associate with that sort of character because of their 'badassery': most characters who are portrayed as badasses are ridiculous and absurd (I spent 20 years training with sensei to learn kaki-mo-hara technique - what is this shit). I prefer characters with a somewhat complex personality who are individualists for certain reasons of their own, but mostly out of a romantic sensibility for the conflict between the individual and society. From the top downwards, a brief summary of the characters I listed:

- Johann Liebert is an enigma until very near the end of the series. He was described as "like an ancient dark god" in a review of Monster, and that's what lends him his power as a villain: he subverts the institutions of a somewhat familiar society (Germany shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall) to achieve his goal of erasing his existence from history. He doesn't particularly care who's killed in his quest to murder everyone who was responsible for him and commit suicide. He knows he's a (the) monster and hates himself for it.
- Patrick Bateman has no personality. He's defined by his consumption of consumer goods and useless luxury products, like all the other yuppies in American Psycho. However, while other characters in the story accept this blindly consumerist and meaningless lifestyle, Bateman rebels against it in the only way he feels able: serial murder. Which is why I say Bateman, aside from his secretary Jeanette (who's just an insecure young woman), is the only genuinely human character in the story: his murders make him the only yuppie who isn't a braindead drone.
- McMurphy is an anarchistic criminal, and the hero of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. While some of the characters say he's a psychopath, later in the story he's shown to be a caring, if rough-hewn, character. His rebellion against the mechanistic rule of Nurse Ratched is symbolic of a broader movement to take back a human spirit from the mechanisms of an oppressive society and the rulers of that society.
- Grigory Alexandrovich Pechorin (here represented by a portrait of the writer of the novel he appears in, A Hero of Our Time) is a disaffected soldier. Throughout the course of the novel we become closer to his mind, until he admits several things: that he glories in power; that he was a shy youth, but was twisted by the lack of affection of others; and that he felt he was born to be a hero, but was never "drawn to that calling". Largely this is because of his boredom and apathy to the feelings of others: he's a fairly archetypal Byronic Hero.
- Don Giovanni is a depraved libertine and all-around douchebag.

While these characters are different (Johan is well-educated and handsome, McMurphy is working-class and ginger), they all feel constrained by society. Which is why I like them. Eh.

Since when has badass been a bad descriptor? Being a badass doesn't make someone a bad person. Badass just means over-the-top-awesome. And in a very vaguely related note, I've been told I'm similar to McMurphy far too many times to give a shit about anything anyone says when comparing IRL people to works of fiction.

My friend downloaded all of Zoids last year and said I should watch it. He's 18. I'd seen one episode of it, back when I was in the single digits. I remember liking it, but my parents told me it was a waste of time and I never saw it again. Back then, I'd never been exposed to action movies/anime, so that was a first. It was all Spongebob and Andy Griffith (which I loved, if I remember right).

I guess I'm a different type of person than all of you. I don't like the rebellious type all that much because a) I skipped my teenage rebellious stage and b) I learned quickly that rules were set for a reason.

That said, one of my favorite characters of all time was a rebel:

Another is a lawyer:

I like "good" characters. Kenshin would be chaotic good, Kenichi neutral good, and Phoenix lawful good. There's a lot more to it than that, but it's pretty obvious if you know all the characters.

http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111126031338/onepiece/images/thumb/0/09/Timeskip_Luffy.png/250px-Timeskip_Luffy.png
He's a good guy with a big heart and a big stomach. He cares about his friends and wants to do what is right - Not just for him, but for the little guy. And best of all, he's got the sheer badassery to back it up. I could have said the same thing about Zolo or Sanji I suppose, but Luffy also has charisma like few others posses.

Another of my favorites is:

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Naruto's a shitty manga, blah, blah, blah. It's a guilty pleasure of mine. There, I said it. So yeah. Lee looks like a tard, but he's a good guy. Compared to everyone in the manga, he's just a normal dude. He doesn't come from super amazing lineage or have a legendary teacher (not to call Guy a slouch) and he's still one of the most powerful characters in his age group. He got where did through hard work and determination.

Desty Nova from Alita. Basically he's the Joker plus Oppenheimer, but what's more, is that he isn't a goddamn moron like every other supervillian 'genius'. Rather than destroying the world or anything, he basically just evens the odds, doing grey-area things like giving psychotic dregs new cyborg bodies to settle their old grudges... Oh, and eating lots and lots of flan.

Izumi Maki, from Nadesico. Has all of ten minutes screen time in the entire series, but has the sort of low booming voice, deadpan sence of humour and sinister demeanour that make her one of my favorate female characters going.

Beatrice from Umineko no naku koro ni. Probably the biggest troll in anime, but one of the best villains. If you haven't seen Umineko, you should watch it just to see how evil she actually is.

not hitting the balance is the whole point of these characters IMO, they're not exactly supposed to be the worse beings on the planet. that's how you can make stories feel a bit new rather than seeing the cliched 100&#37; villain or paladin that we see all the time. also it makes people think about the different gray parts too, and being cute (like the twins in black lagoon) is supposed to represent a scale of gray of it's own.

just imagine it if they were two big badass dudes or just two completely cute innocent kids who are scared of blood shed, or any other ratio of cute:badass couples. will they still fit in with the story and back ground?

Erm, I think you've missunderstood me a fair deal. That's exactly the oppisate way I was talking about, infact...

An exactly 50&#37; cute 50&#37; creepy character is what makes the whole mechanic work, not to mention a relatable personality... I hate flat heroes or villians as much as the next guy. Infact, I hate the whole good-vs-evil concept.

Please don't get offended just because I'm saying that I think those series are lame, I just find it impossible to find characters that cutesy either badass or intimidating. Even the comedy series "So Long Mister Dispair" has the sence to give the characters the right asthetic (http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/characters/7/36024.jpg) when they are doing something nasty... If it's supposed to be an action series, and they get the mechanic wrong, you get a whole load of "Wow, no." moments instead of the crowning moments of awesome they were aiming for... >_>

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is all about the interplay between creepiness and cuteness. I'm fairly sure that it's at the heart of the show's satirising of Japanese culture; the superficial cuteness belying apathy and mental illness. More images of why that show is CreepyCuteSatire and fantastic:

It's funny 'cause you don't get it's a joke.
It's funny because you don't either.

Getting back on topic........

I can't believe I forgot this guy! Alex Louis Armstrong FMA

No one can beat his personality. lol

While on the topic of FMA let's not forget our vertically challenged protagonist! Edward Elric!

And what made this anime worth watching with subtitles was the self-centered main character, Goro Shigeno!

All three had awesome personalities!

To get my ass back on topic, the only characters that I thought had great personalities are Zero from VK(Vampire Knight), the main kid from Eureka Seven, and lastly, Vash the Stampede from Trigun. These are the character that I thought had "lively" personalities.

Hum. Seen Eureka Seven; Really, I thought the mains were sweet and all, but their relationship was a bit predictable. Renton was hardly gonna storm off when Eureka got a bit ugly mid-series...

...But Dominic and Anemone (http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/14800000/Anemone-and-Dominic-eureka-7-14894855-650-546.jpg), man. Damn, what an underated couple! One is an incompitent officer and an the other is a psycho-bitch who subsists on jam, yet they totally evolve and even out each other's differances by the time the series was over. Those two were great. :o

Yeah, now that I think of it those two did evolve over the series. Some of the shit that Dom has to go through for that psycho-bitch Gf/Wife of his...man, that was scary.
