What is your favorite character from all games, movies and books? And why?

That's ridiculously difficult to answer...I could give you a list of my favorite characters...well, let's stick with him so:



Haseo, the Shinokyofu. Since my name came from him, I can say that he's obviously one of my favorite.

Why I like him? Well:
1. He can use 4 types of weapons, the Scythe, the BroadSword(Image), the Twin Daggers(or Shotswords) and the Dual Guns. All of them are awesome.
2. He has a harem [-)!
3. You can say that he's the kind of guy that care for his friends very much, but doesn't admit it, probably because it's a "way to show weakness".
4. He turned into a violent PKK, and killed over a hundred PKs alone. All of it just because of a girl.
5. He changes a lot during the game, but at the start, he's the kind of person that has no mercy and that wants power over everything else. Again, just because of a girl.
6. He was probably a child with inferiority complex. You know, he's a just a normal boy that plays a MMO, and Haseo is his character. Everytime he plays MMOs he chooses the "bloody" path. His past character was a PK. In real life, you can probably say that he's a loner :D.

There are another reasons but they are minor. Just making it fast what I like in him is the antagonism within himself, sometimes a psychopathic killer, sometimes a guy that care for his friends that, again, shows that he is not that sociable.

Btw:
PK - Player Killer: Someone in a MMO that kills other players.
PKK - PK Killer: Some one that kills PKs :P.

Oh, and he's from the game .Hack//G.U., there's also a movie and anime for that.

^ PKKers are also called as "The Anti" amongst some players.

My No. 1 character wouldn't be tolerated around here so I'll have you stick around with the No. 2!

Most people would nominate some badass fighter as their favourite character, but there is someone else to whom I must doff my hat for:



Eliza Cassan from Deus Ex: Human Revolution

There simply doesn't exist too many that of Eliza's kind; celebrities who are programmed to spin the public opinions via tools of media for their masters' bidding. Yet, she is aiding the justice the best she can behind the backs of his owners. It is Eliza's intelligence that makes her so unique, not her physical strength that of which she has none.

One does not simply rule the world with plain violence; information has a just as equal role.

True enough. In fact, we're weak, because we don't have information. Hum! Hum! It's a conspiracy!

But now I'm curious about the "character that wouldn't be tolerated here". A Hitler-like character? A Edward-like character? Or something even more hated than these :o? If you really don't want to say, can you send me a PM? Don't get it wrong, I'm just too curious about it ;D.

Okay, here is another character of my list. I have a huge list of favorite characters, and I like them for a lot of different reasons. By the way, none of my characters will spoiler-free, so be careful.
 


Lelouch Lamperouge (a.k.a Lelouch Vi Britannia). He's a character from the anime Code Geass.

Why I like him? Well,

1. He's not the strong, honored and kind hero. He's weak, cruel, manipulative and...intelligent. You could say he follows the "Maquiavel's" principle(results over means). In another words, he can do anything to get what he wants.

2. In many ways, he has a king/god-like behavior. He can be a little too "marvelous" sometimes, but in general, he's too much of a badass.

3. He's special power is the Geass, some kind of absolute power of manipulation(or you could say that is total submission), but he can only use it once for each people, and he has to make eye contact (see the image, he's using it). The way he uses it is SO creative that kept my mouth open for at least half minute(Something like this :o). It's a perfect power for him.

4. He's a human too. I don't like the make this comparison, but you could say that he looks like Jesus Christ in a way. He would be the incarnation of God or something(He isn't, but he looks like it), but he still has human limitations. His emotions, the relationships with other people, his personal opinions. He can be awesome, but he's not perfect. He's intelligent, but make some very bad mistakes in the anime. Please don't flame me with religion, but Jesus wasn't perfect, because he had human limitations.

5. In the end, he sacrifices himself to fulfill his wishes. You could say that it's another reference to Jesus. He took all the anger and hatred to himself, and died with it. BUT, perphaps he's not dead. Some theories say that he's still alive(and there are some reasons for that possibility, besides that's also another reference of Jesus).

Just finishing it. You know, I like to talk about religion as some kind of book/anime/movies and such, you know, because if you want to believe that it's all real, you can, but some people may not think so. I'm not atheist though...By the way, the Christian references are my opinions.

Humm...

That awkward moment when your online image host screws around.

I'm addicted to this thread ;D. I won't stop posting until my character list ends or until Aero say that I can't post anymore ::).


Archer(a.k.a Emiya Shirou), from the visual novel Fate Stay Night. Yeah, it's written as archer, but it's his name(it's related though).

Why I like him? Well...

1. He's a really badass character, but he doesn't underestimate anyone and respects those with power. He knows his own limitations too, and he won't sacrifice himself for a pety reason. He's the best at surviving and he's really smart too (not in Lelouch's Level though).

2. He is a "hero with regrets". Breaking the principle of the "perfect hero", Archer went into the world of a hero, but he saw that it wasn't good at all since he couldn't save people without killing others.

3. He has the amazing power of "Projection". With it, he can creates any weapons that he knows about and that he saw at least once and that he can clearly visualize in his mind, mainly swords. In theory, his copies aren't perfect, but he can make historical fantastic weapons such as the holy sword Excalibur, the dagger used by Theseus, and, maybe, even Fradz' Swords :o.

4. He also can imagine his own "world" and project it. In this world (see image) his powers are at the max, he can make lots of projections with ease and manipulate them as he wants. And to summon this world he has to make a interesting ritual:Archer's Chant: Unlimited Blade Works

I have to say, at least 75% of the reason I like him is his "badasses", his powers and his chant(that is SO awesome). But his story makes you think a lot about what "being a hero" is.

It's funny, that his counter-part(his past self), it's not as cool as him or as good as him(he's not a bad character though) and he doesn't enter in my list of favorite characters.

One of my favorite characters is a villain, Aizen. I usually prefer villains over good guys because of they usually have more interesting attributes.

I do like Aizen because:

- He seems to be so powerful no one can actually challenge him
- I like that he isn't cocky about his superior powers
- I like that he's very polite
- I like that he's a calm person and with so much mysteries
- He like to plan just about every move of his making him impossible to defeat
- He likes to talks, no matter what situation, small talk. He uses rare words making his dialogues epic
- In reality he's depressed because he's too powerful for anyone and no one can challenge him
