* [[Anime/OsomatsuSan Karamatsu Matsuno]]. He is truly one of the most perfect anime characters ''ever''. He tries to act cool but he's actually a huge nerd, ''[[{{Adorkable}} and it's so cute!]]'' [[NiceGuy He's so sweet]] and he loves his brothers despite being the ButtMonkey of the family! [[MrFanservice He actually looks really good in those so-called "painful" outfits of his!]] [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles He likes sequins and glitter!]] He's the most {{Moe}} {{NEET}} you'll ever see in your life and you will love him. No wonder there are so many [[FanNickname Karamatsu Girls/Boys]] in this show's fandom.

* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'''s Mamoru Amami. Many people say he's not as good as the other characters because he's a TagalongKid, and a walking PlotDevice, but really, as awesome as the rest of the cast is. he's still one of the best written characters in the show, despite how he might seem before [[GrowingTheBeard the beard grows in]], He's just such a sweet AdorablyPrecociousChild, and his CharacterDevelopment after TheReveal leads to a really great CrowningMomentofHeartwarming. and what he goes through in FINAL, from his replicant being captured and brainwashed by the Sol Lords and turned on his friends to steal the Q-parts, to FINAL's BittersweetEnding. and he does BadAss stuff that can put Guy to shame at times. from using Galeon to bust into the Orbit Base's Main Order Room to save everyone from the Nail and Ear Primevals, to freakin' VAPORIZING Pei la Cain in FINAL.

** Edward Elric, the freaking ''title character''. He manages to be not only a bratty smartass with no respect for authority, but no less of a {{Badass}} or noble hero because of it. He's also utterly hilarious at times.

** Solf J Kimblee and not because of [[DracoInLeatherPants leather pants]]. He's a monster but ''damn'' if he isn't one of the most complex characters around. A sociopath who respects people who stay true to themselves, a MadBomber who doubles as ThePhilosopher, and a guy who can BreakingLecture every one of the series BadAss heroes without batting an eye. He never loses his cool, never stops being awesome, and [[BadassInANiceSuit looks great in that white suit]]. NiceHat too.

** Sakura counts as well. She goes from being an obnoxious FanGirl with a crush on Sasuke and pretty much a normal hormonal twelve year old in a bunch of Shinobi genuises; to a strong member of Team 7, Tsunade's apprentice, TheMedic, and a total BadAss with an amazing punch. That's CharacterDevelopment.

** Yuki Nagato is ''all'' kinds of awesome. A nigh-omnipotent, {{badass}} stoic who is also TheWoobie, gives us many laughs, still is mysterious and has amazing CharacterDevelopment. Add the fact that she plays a bitchin' guitar-solo while wearing a RobeAndWizardHat!

** Asakura, ''the'' most awesome killer ever. Her "perfect girl" mask, her love for knifes, her giggles when she fires metal spears and that incredible scary aura she has. She may be underappreciated, but truly magnificent. She's the most BadAss chick in the series. There's a reason they just can't get rid of her.

** Ichigo himself deserves a spot here. He's a bit of a punk, but behind that outwarly cold façade and brash, violent tendencies lies a genuinely kind hearted, smart, and caring person. He is ultimately a responsible brother, an excellent student (tendecies to get into gang fights aside), and a loyal friend who'd put his life in the line to protect you and those you hold dear. Truly a remarkable young man. Plus, that BFS of his is just downright {{Badass}}!

** [[EyesAlwaysShut Gin]] [[PsychoticSmirk Ichimaru]]. Incredibly {{Badass}}, HILARIOUS, and over all simply epic... with his eyes shut! There are a lot of characters who say they can kick your ass with one hand behind their back and their eyes closed, but this guy actually does it! [[PerverseSexualLust (And manages to look absolutely gorgeous while doing so...)]] Gin is probably one of the least serious denizens of Hueco Mundo- Watching the [[{{Omake}} "Arrancar Encyclopedia" segments]] makes me want to glomp him until the world explodes from too much glomp energy being used.

** Kuchiki Byakuya: Long-haired, {{Badass}} {{Bishonen}}? Check. Completely owned the main character upon his first appearance and was the first person to do so? Check. Fantastic fighting style? Check. [[AloofBigBrother Heart]][[DefrostingIceQueen warming]] [[BigBrotherInstinct character]] [[KnightTemplarBigBrother development]]? Check.His fights are some of the most engaging of all the epic battles that Bleach offers [[spoiler:especially the one against Tsukishima]], and his growth throughout the manga is probably the best CharacterDevelopment in the series.

** La Flaga is the coolest guy on the planet, Ramius is an amazing captain, Athrun is a great Lancer and character in his own right, Lacus and [[ActionGirl Cagalli]] for proving that the girls can be important plot-movers in a Gundam series (among lots of other reasons), the psychos like [[SmugSnake Azrael]] and [[CardCarryingVillain Djibril]] for being so thoroughly detestable; even [[JerkassWoobie Shinn]] for being the amazingly complex AntiVillain that he is, but my favourites will always be [[TheHero Kira Yamato]] and [[BigBad Rau Le Creuset]]. To me, Le Creuset was everything that a villain should be: [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds sympathetic]] and monstrous, [[ManipulativeBastard amazingly manipulative]], [[TheChessmaster smart]], and [[OmnicidalManiac capable of driving the entire planet towards destruction and making it look easy]]. I felt bad for him and wanted him dead at the same time, and that's not even getting into his BadAss combat skills and the fact that even in the sequel, he's manipulating events from beyond the grave. And then there's Kira: a poor kid who falls into the cockpit, has to fight against his best friend, slowly loses his mind, and then recovers, saving the world (and maybe himself) in the process. Kira was the first protagonist (in almost anything, but especially anime) who I could honestly say was also my favourite character. I felt so bad for him and everything he went through; seeing his descent into crazy during the middle part of the show was heartwrenching. But he never gives up. And it's not in classic shonen protagonist style either, there's no HotBlooded friendship speeches, or MadeOfIron {{Determinator}}-ing about him, no rants about his own superiority. He just carries on as best he can, because he believes that it's his responsibilty to himself and the world, and tries so hard to remain a NiceGuy, even as the world decends into Hell around him. One of his lines has always stuck with me: "If you just did nothing, because you thought it wouldn't help, than you'd end up doing less than nothing. Because nothing would change." Like Rau, Kira just got to me, which made the final battle between the two all the more impressive.

** Guts, the most {{Badass}} manga character EVER. The man goes up against an army of demons armed only with a broken knife and a horn he snapped off, and survives. While doing this, he loses an arm and an eye, and he now has a brand that draws demons to him every night. Does he simply crawl into a hole and wait to die? No, he ''actively hunts down'' the strongest of these demons so that he can kill a group of demons even '''more powerful''' using a {{BFS}} among {{BFS}}es. He also goes through significant CharacterDevelopment while showing how to avoid BadassDecay. He had a kickass character design, too.

*** I'm unashamed to admit that Vegeta's my favorite. Not only is he BadAss but he went through a great, gradual change from pscyotic villain to full-fledged Z warrior.

** Zoro. Truth be told, I didn't like him very much at first, having been disenchanted with good-looking, BadAss male characters. All that changed when it became increasingly clear to I that he's actually a deeply caring person underneath his gruff reserved-ness.
*** He was cool to me since Day 1, and how couldn't he? When he isn't hilarious, he is a hard boiled {{Badass}} who's matches are some of the best fights in the series. Personally, when I was watching the Alabasta Arc, (which I personally couldn't care for too much), when I saw that the next fight after Nami's was ''Zoro's'', I knew it was gonna be awesome. And that was just ''one'' moment. So yeah, Zoro FTW.

** May from the ''Advanced'' series. Cute, sweet, energetic, well developed (in two different ways), and a girl who just gets increasingly more BadAss as the series progresses. By the time her starter Pokémon fully evolves and she's strong enough to match Ash in battle, you really feel proud of how far she's come.

** Hei, [[FanNickname a.k.a.]] Chinese Electric Batman. He falls squarely into [[PhoenixFire my]] warped definition of BadassAdorable, which for any normal female would be "{{Badass}} and [[MrFanservice hawt]]," and he can be a surprisingly complicated character considering that the fact that he has really cool powers is ''supposed'' to make him inescapably sociopathic and his hardcore {{stoic}}ism and [[ObfuscatingStupidity acting ability]] often make it difficult to tell what he knows, thinks, or feels about anything. It's also pretty cool to see how the different sides of his personality tend to come into play in different situations and how he's been shaped by his [[DarkAndTroubledPast godawful past]].

** Nodoka. En addition to the ''epic'' amounts of {{Moe}} that she emanates, she's probably one of the bravest characters in the entire series. Despite the fact that she constantly gets put into intensely dangerous or frightening situations, she's one of the few characters who never has any sort of HeroicBSOD or bouts of SelfDeprecation. Her first response to just about any situation to do what she can, even if it involves sneaking up on the BigBad in the middle of a fight or standing up to a being who just [[spoiler: erased two of her friends from existence]]. It's subtle, but she has her BadAss moments.

* [[Manga/NabariNoOu Raikou]] is a {{Samurai}} with [[{{Bishonen}} long hair in a ponytail]]...who's dyed his hair ''pink'', has no fashion sense(wanting to buy a ''gold sequined suit'' at one point), and is an AmbiguouslyGay sadist. And he still somehow comes off as BadAss. If that doesn't spell CrazyAwesome, I don't know what does.

*** He may be huggable early on, but in most of the later arcs Ash really does grow into a good trainer. He really does't deserve the flak he gets from the fandom.

* [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans Naze Turbine]]. Just Naze Turbine. What else can you say about a mafia leader, IN SPACE, whose ship is run by his harem. And not just your average, run of the mill, tsundere ridden, loli loaded harem, but a stable, legit polygamous family. With kids. If more harem series had characters like Naze Turbine the genre would be so much better for it.

*** Seconded with Cilan. He's an [[TheCutie adorable]], well-dressed geek who's a fantastic cook and never seems to run out of energy. He [[BigBrotherInstinct never failed to be supportive of Ash and Iris]], and shows a lot of compassion for Pokémon, including his own. He takes his job as a gym leader seriously and always has advice to give other trainers. This troper was crushed when he left with Iris at the end of Gen 5.

* Who's that bastard that makes us cheer with every play? [[MagnificentBastard Hiruma!]] Who's the guy that makes his enemies cry out of absolute fear?

** Juzo Sakakura deserves credit for being an impressive example of RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, being downright [[TheScrappy loathed]] when the series started out, only to be slowly but surely rescued with his [[spoiler: BigDamnHeroes moment and heroic sacrafice]]. On top of that, he's MrFanservice , MadeOfIron and he's [[spoiler: one of the only characters in the franchise to be confirmed gay, since he's in love with Munakata, and despite his brash and rude exterior, he doesn't act angry or jealous over Munakata's [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy relationship with Yukizome]]]]

** Chisa Yukizome herself has proven to be a hilarious GenkiGirl capable of rounding up everyone in her class and encouraging them to actually go to their classes and spend time together. She encourages and protects Hinata without even being his teacher and [[spoiler: she's the only character to not be instantly [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] by Ryota's anime. No, she was so strong willed and badass, Mukuro had to use ColdBloodedTorture to get the anime to work.]]
** That last member of the 74th class trio, Kyosuke Munakata, is just as badass as his friends. He's capable of fighting a MasterSwordsman and a BadassGrandpa to a standstill, the BigGood of Side:Despair working to bring the shadowy behind the scene's works of the Hope's Peak Steering Comittee to light, and figured out who the [[BigBad masterminds]] of both Side:Future and Side:Despair were. On top of all that awesomeness, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking he looks like]] [[VideoGame/Persona4 Yu Narukami]]

** Speaking of Wierdos, Franky himself has to be one of the most unbelievably awesome characters ever invented. He's a cola powered Cyborg built out of pieces from a junkyard. He has a blue pompadour, the forearms of Pop-eye the Sailor, the chin of Bruce Campbell, wears a Hawaiian shirt and speedo at all times, cries ManlyTears at the drop of a hat, plays acoustic guitar ballads, and according to WordOfGod is based on AceVentura.
