1. A fairly smart tactician

2. A detective that somehow believes a teenager is capable of killing people around the world with heart attacks. Open minded, but not very smart considering that what Light did is usually impossible. Is willing to torture his victims without proof of their crimes, and was also willing to use the Death Note, which makes him no better than Light. And lets not forget when he put Lind L Tailor on TV, knowing he would be killed in L's place

3. An idiot that has somehow managed to survive so long due to his powers and friends

4. A man with a dream - to rid the world of crime altogether, or at least tone it down by a large percentage.

5. A boy that made a silly mistake in the past, and aims to fix what he broke in the first place. Grows up a fair bit during the series from a boy into a man. A small man, but a man regardless.

6. A man with a very negative view on the world, yet still sees hope for it. Does what he thinks is right, even if it is a pain in the ass and he ends up complaining about it.

7. Used to have a negative view on the world as he was isolated, but later becomes a hero and thinks very positive. Never gives up, likes to take the spotlight.

8. Laid back, likes to relax, but gets serious when the need arises. The strongest of the Straw Hat Pirates, and with good reason.

9. Don't know enough to judge.

10. A silly high school girl with a god complex.

1. Lamperouge Lelouch: mai waifu

2. L: don't particularly like him as a character but it was certainly enjoyable seeing someone give light a run for his money

3. Monkey D. Luffy: ??? nothing really special about him, vocal one piece fans I guess

4. Yagami Light: understandable, not really that amazing, other chars like kaiji are smarter lol but yeah

5. Edward Elric: You only have the right to put him in your favorite characters if you watched FMA dubbed and watched/prefered the 2003 version, fact

6. Kurosaki Ichigo: lol I liked bleach but he's honestly a very bad character, all he said was that he wanted to protect his friends and that's it. He seemed like a good character at first because he somewhat differed from a lot of tropes and didn't really say some cliché stuff in his dialogues but he still end up getting very little development, rukia is the best character in bleach

7. Uzumaki Naruto: back then he was my favorite character in Naruto, it felt like if Charlie Brown was in an anime except it would be a shounen and he would have hair and be more genki, was very enjoyable to follow his development. sadly in shippuden he just gets cheap power-ups and barely feels changed even though several years have passed

8. Roronoa Zoro: pretty much the cool side character of one piece

9. Sataka Gintoki: it rubs me the wrong way to see someone outside of dragon ball doing kamehamehas

10. Haruhi Suzumiya: She's basically a modern day version of several strong female characters actually, probably the best moe/tsundere character ever, it's easy to call her a bossy bitch or anything but all that self-awareness is basically what gave the show such buzz

So that's the most popular characters on MAL - is what I think.
Now stop creating useless threads.

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.

Once again it just shows that most mal users have either shitty taste or haven't grown pubes yet.
Dubs>subs.
Breaking Bad>Anime
Comic books>manga

I don't see Yui Hirasawa in the top ten so it's invalid.

Needs Kamina or Simon. It's not a top 10 without a Gurren Lagann character as far as I'm concerned.

Personally I don't agree with all of them.
I agree with Light because he is a great character with an amazing anti-hero story. Death Note is just beast.

Lelouch... I disagree, Light is better than Lelouch as a anti-hero character.
L I find ... well a great character but for an all time favorite... no. Overrated.
Edward Elric, yes, a very great character. Strong character and amazing story.
Ichigo? Maybe but its hard to only look his character side with the story being kinda all over the place.

Naruto with his background and character development. A very strong character and deserves to be higher.
Haruhi... great character, very enjoyable but... I wouldn't consider her an all time favorite.

On the other hand I don't understand why Araragi, Koyomi isn't there.

You probably made this thread just because Haruhi was on there, didn't you?

Overall I don't really care all that much, it is what it is but those aren't my top 10 characters.

To touch up on why Naruto is probably there, if you've ever watched the series for more than the fights, you'll see that despite his "hurr durr what's 1 + 1? My fist believe it!" front he puts up, there's actually more to him than what's shown on the surface. He's hardheaded, but he's also very perceptive and sharp when it counts. He's also very confident and although silly, still serious when he needs to be. Additionally, he's a character that many people can relate to due to his past living as an outcast in isolation.

With 380K and 290K users attached to Death Note and Code Geass in some way it is not at all shocking to find out their MCs dominate the top 4. Not even taking into account how lousy the supporting characters are in both series which only gives the MCs even more reason to become more popular to those who like those series.

Other than Gintoki and Haruhi, the remaining 8 characters on that list also belong to the top ten most favourited anime series so it's not really shocking to see overlap at all.

*shurgs* I don't got a problem with any of 'em so they're fine I guess. Surprising lack of female characters though.

Exactly what does this mean again?

Who are we to say someone whom we collectively voted into the top ten is undeserving of their place... It was a community vote, not your personal opinion.

How many people bothered to +1 a character.

But hey, we're free to draw whatever bullshit intelligent conclusions we want from the top favorites list!

As for my opinion... I never (and still haven't) really bothered looking at it, so I dunno.

I don't know 1. and 10.
Never liked Edward Elric much (didn't watch FMA:B yet tho). Love Gintoki and Zoro. Luffy, L, Light are all pretty cool. I don't dislike Ichigo or Naruto but i must say that i used to like them much more than now.

This is how i feel towards the characters, don't really have anything to say about it being fair or not to have them on the top10..can only speak by myself not by the others :p Still, i'm curious how would the top10 (and not only) change, if everyone happened to see the very same Anime.

Even if i can admit One piece, Naruto and Bleach's popularity, i definetely don't think they are the best or most interesting characters in their respective series. in fact, they are some of the blandest
i don't know everything

I had a look at Saimoe Anime Character Popularity contest and interestingly i am not very familiar with most of the top favourites. in fact, i don't even know 7 of last years top 8.
it's an all-female contest though... and it's more about moe than popularity i suppose.
still how can Kaga Rin not be in it?
also interestingly, no one from onepiece, naruto, bleach, fairy tail, beelzebub and some other popular shounen shows are in it.
Yoruichi is pretty moe right, she can turn into a cat

I would disagree and argue that they do have some interesting characters. Don't let deluded fanboys take away from the fact that these are solid Anime. Granted, I have probably only seen half or around half of each of the big 3.

I can't say I'm against it. The list is filled with popular characters from popular Anime. A few of those characters are some of my favs also, but not top 10 fav.

I had no idea who the number 10 was.

Not for me. I don't like Natsu but at least he is consistent with his friendship ideology. Sure it may produce outcomes which are stupidly in his favor, but his character is still not as bad as Ichigo. Plus he is not in top 10, so Natsu doesn't bother me.

Because most people only see Madoka as a mcguffin (even though shes a little more than that) but compared to the other characters shes kind of overshadowed especially by Homura.

Really, to each his/her own I guess....but still, why is the bitch so famous? It's not that she is the only obnoxious annoying tsundere out there..

Oh, I wouldn't put her anywhere near my favorites.

I think it's cause she is cute and enthusiastic and weird and loves the normal MC. So guys are like: "Oh my God, I could be that MC! My Haruhi is out there waiting for me!"
