I was at the Phoenix Comic Con this past weekend and saw a metric crap-ton of cosplayers. I was able to identify most every character right off the bat. There was only one guy that I couldn't figure out and I wasn't able to catch him in time to ask. It was a guy with a long red coat that had six to eight buttons and a long yellow scarf. His brown hair, which was a wig (making me assume that it was accurate with the costume) was relatively short and gravity-defying kind of slicked backwards. For some reason, I get the impression that he was pretty short.
He was super familiar. I dunno if he is from an anime or just a Western cartoon character, but it will bug me for the rest of my existence if I can't figure it out. I usually watch shonen stuff and this mysterious red-coated figure fit the general hero archetype, so I assume he would be from that genre.
I just want to make clear that I know for certain it wasn't Dante from Devil May Cry, Vash the Stampede from Trigun, Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia, or Alucard from Hellsing. They don't have the yellow scarves anyway.
