Yo
I'm wondering if there is any anime character who is strong but does not like fighting or killing etc. Like kenshin
OR
Someone who acts weak but is secretly strong
Like Layfon from chrome shelled regios
OR
someone who is just really tough and badass but was weak at first.
Like naruto

Not exactly like these character but on a similar basis.
Thank you in advance.

1. Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
2. & 3. reminded me of St Seiya (Shun & Pegasus) and Hunter X Hunter (maybe Goon & Kurapika)

I don't want to make this thread sound like a broken record but I gotta say Vash the Stampede from Trigun, he fits the first two descriptions perfectly.

Gohan of Dragonball Z qualifies. He doesn't have the same love of fighting as Goku and the other Saiyans.

I think Alphonse from Fullmetal Alchemist fits in the "strong, but does not like fighting".
Shikamaru from Naruto as well.

"Strong, but does not like fighting" fits Shizuo from Durarara perfectly, I'm surprised he hasn't already been mentioned.

^ I think thats probably cuz hes kind of a hypocrite... he "says" he doesn't like fighting but take no steps to prevent that he gets in fights. His first reaction is always attack first talk later.

Vash the Stampede is the obvious choice. Urahara Kiske from Bleach, Gintoki from Gin tama and some of the others mentioned before like Alphonse Sichika

Shirou Emiya from Fate/Stay Night because he doesn't believe in killing other masters and Servents to win the Holy Grail, well until later he is forced to fight for his life and win the grail war in order to protect those he cared for.

Well kenichi from "histories strongest disciple kenichi" is super weak at first but I soon becomes the toughest guy around after he learns martial arts, and doesn't really like fighting much but he kicks ass, you should read the manga too becaus it continues far past the anime

Because he runs into fights with every chance he gets.

Anyway the best suggestions for a strong guy that is trying to avoid fighting are the guy from Trigun already mention and this guy.

Oh! yeah, also Casshern from Casshern Sins can be put there.

For starting weak and getting strong kenichi as the above poster says and Ippo from Hajime no Ippo.

Balsa from Seirei no Moribito - doesn't like to kill at all, is redeeming herself for letting it happen.

Well he's practically the posterchild for this thread haha - I think literally everyone likes Vash the Stampede!

Lol well Luffy certainly never acted weak - that cocky little punk has wanted to be the Pirate King since he was 2 feet tall. I'm not sure one could say he was ever really weak because he's always been willing to fight any challengers.

I do agree with Kenichi from History's Strongers Disciple and Ippo from Hajime No Ippo - both start out weak and end up very strong.
We can't stop here, this is bat country.
