* [[RickAndMorty Rick Sanchez]]. He's funny, smart and badass, But what makes him even better is that unlike certain charcters (say modern Peter Griffin and Mr. Krabs), he actually has a morality. While he usally is rather mean to his grandson Morty, he actually DOES care about him and his life even if half the time he's just telling him to "grow a pair". He's not a complete jerk to everyone in the show, and season 2 shows that he's spending more time with his family by having Summer tag along in more of there adventures. Plus, it's hard to not smile when he compliments Beth. He's essentially a more likeable version of [[FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] [[SeasonalRot from the more modern seasons]]

* Garnet from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. A badass with powerfists who is guaranteed to have a golden line each episode. She's also [[spoiler: the literal representation of the love between two women. She's the perfect harmonization of two very different gems. Every awesome thing she does shows how strong their relationship is. ]]
** Definitely a second for Garnet. And what about the other characters? I nominate Pearl; nerdy, adorable, and elegant. Her character-focused episodes, such as "Space Race" and "Rose's Scabbard," tend to be the most heartbreaking. But seriously, every character needs a spot.
** Greg GREATEST FATHER IN FICTION Universe. He left his musical career for a woman he barely knew, and proceeded to love her unconditionally even though she was actually an ''asexual warrior alien from a race of conquering sentient rocks''. And when she [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence dissappeared]] to allow their child to be born, he alone took care of his infant son, built a house for him (a house Greg himself would never live in) and allowed Steven to live with his late wife's fellow aliens (one or two of which blame Greg to an extent for said wife's dissappearance) so he can learn from his mother's legacy. Additionally, he pays for ''everything'' they ever brake (which happens often) and every other expense they may have, while he gets to live alone in a van. And all this without ever lashing out at anyone, being incredible supportive of his son (''Steven, I'm supportive and very proud of you and... I'll be right back.'' -goes off to have a panick attack after his son told him murderous aliens are trying to kill him), respectful and friendly with the gems (''I think so highly of you, it just isn't fair that you have so little faith in me''), and all-around optimistic (''If every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs!''), [Adorkable] (''Let me drive my van into your heart...''), walking CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming (''What do I do with all this money? I'd rather spend my time with you'' -to Steven).

Few shows have the confidence to show a character who's fundamentally a good person who nevertheless makes mistake after mistake, and yet she's all the more compelling because of it. The show's not afraid to make her harder to like at times and refuses to shy away from her flaws and insecurities, not to mention a completely HeartbrokenBadass who misses Rose each and every day. And through it all, she's strong, capable, protective, and defied all the brainwashing Homeworld threw at her, and now is well on her way to repairing her trust issues and even might have a new relationship with the Mystery Girl. But seriously, every character needs a spot.

** Steven Quartz Universe himself! A cute, friendly, approachable kid who does his best to love everyone. He's cheerful, optimistic, and goes through a very rewarding character arc as he slowly averts his status as TheLoad and grows into his powers over time. He's also incredibly smart and wise. The series doesn't make it easy for him as it slowly chips away at his innocence and the realization that the world around him is larger and more dangerous than he could've ever imagine, not to mention going through some incredibly adult issues, even coping with survivor's guilt, trouble living up to his mother's legacy, and the strain with her isn't negative. It's how he feels and has every right to do so. In short, one of the most likable, realistic, and developed protagonists in western animation.
** Connie as well! She's adorable, book smart, serious when it comes to her studies, and has a lot of insecurities that don't get in the way from her fun-loving, dependable personality. She's not just the token human sidekick who sits in the background, she's become an ActionGirl in her own right and developed the confidence to call out her mother on her unintended pressure and responsibility. While she's not always around, she's got school and her own things to do, she never hesitates to jump into the fight and she gets the large badass sword while he has a pink flower-shaped shield, and this is treated in-show as awesome with no stigma attached. In fact, [[spoiler:when fused, they become so much more than themselves alone, and demonstrate an equal partnership in the form of Stevonnie]]. And they're just as cute and strong as you'd expect, not to mention being a non-gendered character who has nothing but love and support and is not only respected, but seen as a miraculous, beautiful being who explored more subtlety in their introduction in gender dynamics, attraction, and LGBT themes in ten minutes than most series have managed in their entire runs.

*** Though some prefer her paired with the {{DCAU}}'s Poison Ivy...sure, it's blatant {{Fanservice}}, but at least it's a (moderately) ''healthy'' criminal partnership!

* ''WebAnimation/MightyMagiswords'' is a new show, not even 2 months old as of this entry, but [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Grup]]! He is so [[NiceGuy sweet]], [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter adorable]], and [[TheDitz silly]]. His song in [[Recap/MightyMagiswordsS1E13GottaGetGrupToGetDown "Gotta Get Grup to Get Down"]] is [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic fantastic]], and he's so goofy and funny, he deserves his own show! How could you not love him? He's ''Grup''!

* Badass characters? I like that. [[ActionGirl Female badass]] characters? I enjoy that. Female, redheaded (close to redhead at least), and badass characters? I love that. So it would be no surprise that Sylvia from ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' would be a favorite of mine. However, what really takes the cake is her design. I don't know why but something about it just makes me love the character even more. Combining that along with being a badass with red(ish) hair and you get my favorite character of all time.
