Considering those are very popular shows, it's quite obvious that some or most or maybe even all the characters in there are included. Those who are new to anime or just starting to watch anime will watch those first because of their popularity. Some may like the characters or some will not but most of the time they will love them that's why they are very popular. I don't like most of them but I have no objections since in reality, the masses' choice always win.

As of today here is the top ten list

Lamperouge, Lelouch - Pretty BA, but I prefer Light more
Lawliet, L - I didn't like his methods of execution but there's no denying he's enjoyable as a character
Monkey D., Luffy - no comment
Yagami, Light - One of my all time favorite antagonists
Elric, Edward - One of the few protaganists that really connected with me, I really loved him when paired with Vic's voice
Kurosaki, Ichigo - Just watched Bleach last year and I really liked Ichigo's character,
Uzumaki, Naruto - If you had asked me this before shippuden came out I'd say he didn't deserve top 10, but he's much better now.
Roronoa, Zoro - no comment
Sakata, Gintoki - no comment
Suzumiya, Haruhi - Hmm, I didn't really like haruhi that much, I mean sure she's great but top 10 material? I don't think so.
I find it funny that you say "no comment" for one piece characters, but you commented on Ichigo and said he is very good. Classic biased hater

Luffy being special is not a matter of opinion, there is no way you can say Luffy is not special, it is like saying Albert Einstein is not a genius

As I said, I only watched the first 11-20 episode of a series whose story has more than 600 and even that is only around the half point so barely any character development and characterization was given at that time. Also nothing big happened in those episodes, so, why would I think he is more special than any other shounen MC? I can only give an opinion about what I have saw, maybe he is the best character ever in the future episodes, I have no way to know it, I'm making my opinion based in my knowledge (as I stated, so please calm your inner fanboy and accept others' opinion).

I said "no comment" because I have never watched One Piece before so I cannot form any opinion on those characters. I do not hate those characters at all.

Apparently so. I did not intend for him to get angry.

Perhaps I should have clarified I haven't watched One Piece before. Also, I haven't watched Gintama either which is why I wrote "no comment" for Gintoki as well.

Actually, I plan on watching Gintama soon though. I've seen you saying somewhere on another forum that Gintama has a slow start so I'm sort of put off by that. I'm thinking I'll just watch one episode at a time until I feel like hooked on it.

"No comments" is a very offensive statement in Brazil. It is like saying "Wow that is so stupid and so wrong I am not even going to say anything"

I generally assume when someone says no comment, it means they dont believe they are qualified enough to speak on something, this case being not watching a show. There was no reason for you to be called a "hater" in this situation

I mean it can be used like that, its all a matter of the tone of voice which cant be portrayed through text, I'm not aware of this difference in meanings but for the future keep in mind when someone says no comment here it means they literally have no comment because they really cant justifiably say anything

Same here. Naruto and Ichigo should get out of the top 10

I don't know Gintoki as well.

You should watch Gintama, then you'll understand that Gintoki is well deserved to be up there.

Flume said:
Most of them deserve there place except for Naruto and maybe Luffy.

Bolded: Why so? If you have been watching One Piece, there is no reason for you to say that Luffy doesn't deserve that spot, after all the time we spent on learning about his past, his present, and his possibly future.

I don't think zoro, naruto, ichigo or luffy deserve to be top 10.
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike them, but are they worthy of top 10? not really.
Fair enough for the others, even though they wouldn't make my list.
And It doesn't look like anyone will ever catch up to lelouch and L.
The end is nigh

1: Lamperouge, Lelouch
Hmm. I can understand why he is up there. Kind of. I would definitely put him pretty high in a top characters list of my own, but probably not top 10, let alone first.

2: Lawliet, L
Frankly, I think he is an idiot. It would be hard for me to back that opinion up without rewatching the show, because its been so long since I thought about why.

3:Monkey D., Luffy
Meh. Luffy is an interesting character I suppose, but I cant really enjoy his normal attitude. I do like how strongly it contrasts against his serious actions to a point, but its just TO strongly for me to like him overall. He would definitely not be in any list of my favorite characters.

4: Yagami, Light
I think he is an idiot to, tbh, just slightly less of an idiot than L and somewhat luckier.

5: Elric, Edward
I like him. Not much more to say really.

6: Kurosaki, Ichigo
I dont know how many times one person can lose confidence in themselves recover kick the shit out of some stupidly op bad guy and repeat the process, but I think ichigo has set out to test the limits of this turn of events. He is a shit character, enough said.

7: Uzumaki, Naruto
God why. I cant even really explain well WHY I dont like him. I think I just find his attitude/voice/actions generally annoying. That said, there is at least one time ive absolutely loved his actions so I can accept him being here more than Ichigo.

8: Roronoa, Zoro
Well, he is at least badass enough to warrant a spot fairly high on a favorite characters list. Better than everyone above him, at the least.(except maybe lelouche)

9: Sakata, Gintoki
This one I understand, and even agree with to some extent. For some reason I enjoy his switches between serious and stupid a lot more than I do with the ones luffy has. Easily better than anyone else on this list anyway. (except maybe lelouche again)

10: Suzumiya, Haruhi
Eh. I dont really dislike her, but I certainly dont think she is anywhere near good enough to get on a top 10 character list. Not even close.


Overall, I think that is a pretty crappy list. Maybe 3-4 of those characters would even appear in a top 100 characters list if I made it. Then again, my opinion and all /shrug.

Unless you mean special as in retarded then no, it's not a fact.


Are people in this thread serious? calling it a horrible list or x character and y character don't belong here. This is the top 10 characters in terms of favorites on the site not the top 10 objectively best characters of all time in anime history, Jesus.

Getting butthurt that other people like something you don't like, smh.

1. Lamperouch Lelouch
My favorite character. I can understand why some people don't like him as much though.

2. L
I dislike him, actually. His quirky mannerism is annoying to me.

3. Luffy
Nice character. I at least don't have objections of him being on top 10.

4. Light
I like him but not as high as top 10.

5. Edward
Only read the manga. Maybe if I watch the anime I'll like him more.

6. Ichigo
While I lament the fact that Bleach is being hated upon by a lot of self-righteous anime critics, I regret to say that Ichigo may not be the best candidates for top 10 characters. Sure, he wins some epic fights, but his character just doesn't shine through.

7. Naruto
The epitome of tropes and cliches of battle shounen. Yet, I think he should be ranked pretty high, if not top 10. Why, because Naruto is the symbol of battle shounen (even if its a cliche, at least he represent the cliche). Furthermore, like Luffy, Naruto says some inspiring and/or badass statement that really leaves its mark.

8. Zoro
I am not as big of a one piece fan as Bleach and Naruto fan. However, I think Zoro's badass-ness makes him legitimate of being on top 10.

9. Gintoki
Never watched Gintama to know.

10. Haruhi
She is quite funny, but I honestly like Kyon a lot more, what with his taciturn, humorous social commentary and all.

Moreover, worth mentioning that ...

12 Alucard - I hope this appease a lot of Hellsing fans
13 Kamina - TTGL fan likewise
14 Okabe Rintarou - well-deserved, if not higher
16 Spike Spiegel - classic anime favorite character
22 Yuno - the crazy psycho bitch
23 C.C. - never understands why so many people like her.
25 Kakashi - a pretty cool character
26 Senjougahara - Quirky, charming, possessive, and random
27 Kirito - I don't hate SAO, but, really ...
30 Natsu - Another battle shounen cliche

No, him getting mad at someone for saying "no comment" and saying that they are badmouthing the characters because they said "no comment". And he's famous for being a troll around here but regulars keep on taking him seriously.

As it stands now, the top ten most popular characters on MAL are

1. Lamperouge Lelouch
2. L
3. Monkey D. Luffy
4. Yagami Light
5. Edward Elric
6. Kurosaki Ichigo
7. Uzumaki Naruto
8. Roronoa Zoro
9. Sataka Gintoki
10. Haruhi Suzumiya

Do you have any objections to the list? Do you believe there are characters who certainly do not belong there, and there are many surprising characters who are did not make the top ten? I personally do not think Naruto, Ichigo should not have made it, seeing how the former two belong to very ill received series, and aren't exactly very deep. If anything, I have no objections to the rest of the list, but I am surprised Son Goku is nowhere near the top ten here when many Western fans list him as "the greatest anime character of all time."

Discuss what you think.

HOW THE HELL IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!?!?!?!?!

Ichigo was ONLY awesome when 1) he saved Rukia right when she was gonna get executed and 2) in his last fight when he used FGT. THE ENTIRETY of all the other time the anime ran for, he was weak, crying, and/or afraid!

Nice troll good sir.

The Top 10 are popular for reasons because that's simply what most people, especially those who don't really watch that much anime to begin with watch and catch up upon. Whether they should be 1-10 is just a matter of things being the way they are.

I love Lelouch, hes the best character in any story ever and that includes jesus. My only wish is that gintoki and zoro would get replaced by the much more deserving characters of carrot-o and ass sauna

I bet there are thousands of inactive accounts from times when Bleach & co were more popular that still have Ichigo and some others in their favorites. In terms of active members I'm pretty sure people like Okabe would dominate the top 10.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I bet there are thousands of inactive accounts from times when Bleach & co were more popular that still have Ichigo and some others in their favorites. In terms of active members I'm pretty sure people like Okabe would dominate the top 10.


such optimism...

I think its safe to assume there are tons of inactive accounts that have alot of the top 100 characters favorites, including okabe, But the main crutch of the people that have that havew these favorites are active users that probably only use the site for the list function, dont be fulled by how much people like me and others shit talk the series, we are a vocal minority and there are plenty of people whom love that show to death

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

It's not about optimism. The times when new members registred and added Ichigo are just over for the most parts. Nowadays first contact with anime and the dedication that comes with it is more likely to be with some of the recently hyped shows like Steins Gate or Shingeki. Of course Bleach & Naruto (Bleach less because it stopped airing) are still relevant, but far from having as much influence on new fans than a couple of years ago.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I partly agree with you Higashi. But also Steins;Gate isn't the highest in overall popularity. Code Geass, Bleach, Death Note, etc are all at the top of the popularity list with at least 100,000 more members than it. I think overall popularity has to be part of it. Also all those new shows aren't being aired on tv yet.

I'm just saying the majority of Bleach fans will already have been Bleach fans 2 years ago and therefore I think lesser amount of new registrations will be. While Steins;Gate just aired 2 years ago and can't have all the inactive accounts from 2005-20011 that are all potentially having Ichigo in their favorites. So imo it's natural to assume that the amount of inactive accounts with Ichigo in their favorites is considerably higher than the amount of inactive accounts who has any recently popular show/charcters in their favorites.

@Intro: The same argument can be used for overall popularity. Older accounts can't have the new shows. Subtract the inactive accounts from before 2011 and I'm sure the numbers would look different. Not to the same extent as the favorites though, because there are a solid amount of people who finished the show but would never put anything of it into their favorites.

i was being facetious there, but yeah, bleach has been on the decline lately

however, bleach is still relatively immensely popular, and ichigo is more of a brand image now
you have all of the groupthink people who pick him without a real valid reason (not saying that's true for everyone), and that's bound to skew the ratings
