Spike, of course, and Mugen as well. But honorable mention goes to this guy.

Yang Wenli isn't really "cool". Even if he is probably the best protagonist ever.

In terms of "cool", my answer is the infamous Spike Spiegel. I mean, that's kind of a given, right? :P

Otherwise, I'd have to go with Yuzuru from Angel Beats. Yeah, I know it is such a recent series and nothing ground-breaking and all, but I found that he was a very refreshing main character...Mostly because of the tropes in so many other anime [similar to Angel Beats] that I see. He isn't a pervert. He "grows" throughout the storyline, rather than just meeting a girl and being inspired by her saying "Let's all do our best!". The most striking instance that put him on my favorite character list, however, was his sacrifice in that particularly jarring episode where.... Yes, I am being purposely vague to avoid spoiling.

Back on track, however...
I found that he was a -in my opinion- truly good person. I always hear main characters being described as kind and "pure-hearted", when I sometimes fail to see that. Needless to say, I found Yuzuru's goodness refreshing. Again, not just the usual cliche "ganbatte".
He was really...human...to me. I thought that was pretty interesting, since I don't usually see that. Especially in anime similar to Angel Beats.

I really wish they had bridged the gap between his last appearance in Zeta and Char's Counterattack better.

Has nobody mentioned Akagi Shigeru yet? He needs at least one mention, even if Spike, Guts etc. do turn out to be cooler than him. While other may be awesome using a sword or a gun, he manages to be awesome by playing mahjong. Surely that has to count for something.

I'm certainly the only one to find The Baron so cool, but nvm.

And yes, like everyone, Spike.

Lots of replies and I have to say I forgot about a lot of these characters lol...

My top 5 would probably be:
1.)Spike(as everyone else)
2.)Ousawa Akatsuki(MC from the new anime Hagure Yuusha No Estetica)
3.Kazuma (Kaze no Stigma)
4.)Gintoki(Gintama, My avatar is a chibi of him)
5.)Lelouch(Code Geass)

I thought it was about THE main character, if it's any main character, then Killua hands down as well as Hisoka.

Who's spike btw since many mentioned him? :P


Idk if you're serious or not but Spike Spiegal is the MC from the anime Cowboy Bebop, if you haven't seen it yet you should really watch it.
