* [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 'toon]] Donatello will always have a special place in my heart. He's easily one of the [[NiceGuy nicest]] [[NeutralGood characters]] on the show, but, as his trip to the BadFuture clearly showed, [[BewareTheNiceOnes he's also willing to]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes kill]]'' for his family, despite his [[TechnicalPacifist distaste for fighting.]] Though he doesn't get as much attention as his brothers [[note]]Or other characters, for that matter-- to the point where, on the pages for TeenGenius and BadassBookworm, he's an ''afterthought''.[[/note]] it manages to be satisfying, in a way-- he fills his duty as TheReliableOne and then lets one of the others take the spotlight from there on out, content to work in the background. He's a character that even the most shy and attention-avoidant of us can relate to... plus, he's [[BadassPacifist awesome]] ''and'' [[{{Adorkable}} adorable]]!

Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded, especially on Flurry Heart. I thought I was going to hate the episode "A Flurry of Emotions" due to the whole babysitter aspect, but unlike most examples of the BadlyBatteredBabySitter trope where the baby makes life an utter hell for the baby sitter, Flurry's just a curious child who loves her auntie Twilight throughout the episode, and Twilight doesn't take very much abuse if any at all; all Flurry does is get into some tiny mischief ''like an actual baby''. Not only that, but she turned out to be one of the most expressive ponies on the show, ''and'' her adorableness feels genuine! Hopefully her haters will start to calm down after that.


Added DiffLines:

*** Wouldn't that mean all of the pets except for [[PutOnABus Peewee]]?

* StrawberryShortcake's lady villain, Sour Grapes, was an EnsembleDarkHorse character since her debut in 1982. Brazen, intelligent, feminine without being too cutesy and yet still maintaining a place in a cutesy show by way of being a DarkChick DeadpanSnarker GenkiGirl HarmlessVillain (who has her successes outside of screen time), and it ''worked''. She was brought back for the franchise's 2003 remake by the year 2006, this time as all of the aforementioned as well as a savvy AntiVillain. She was recreated as more [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds insecure and timid]] than before, while the main cast was more tomboyish and go-get-'em than they had been in the '80s. Again, Sour Grapes was a darkhorse character, [[DracoInLeatherPants wearing leather pants]] (justifiably) more than ever. She was THE RoundedCharacter of the show, needing a place in the world for herself while also [[BigBrotherInstinct needing]] her GenreBlind VisionaryVillain brother's happiness, and her HeelFaceRevolvingDoor adventures made her even more sympathetic as opposed to less. CharacterDevelopment lead her to become an odd type of ParentalSubstitute (in a world where none of the main characters have parents), CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming-- but the heel face revolving door was still not set to end any time soon. Complicated woman. In both incarnations, Grapes was a fantastically rare blend of [[OnlySaneMan common sense]] and the lack thereof, something unusual for any character and all the more unusual for a female. And yes, she resides in a show created for little girls.

* Scott Tracy is [[Tropers/{{Ptitlevos5dvs8}} my]] favorite Tracy brother in the ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' series. It's probably [[WhatBeautifulEyes the eyes]], or that voice, or those dimples, or the fact [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed that he looks like a young]] SeanConnery... [--So handsome...--]

* Oh, and how about [[ThePerilsofPenelopePitstop Penelope Pitstop]]? I loved how she often managed to get herself out of trouble AND rescue the Ant Hill Mob.

*** For [[Tropers/MysticSongbird this Tropette]], when she first heard that song, she immediately thought of "Trouble" from TheMusicMan, which, is one of her ''all time favorite'' musicals. From that point on, she absolutely ''adored'' Flim and Flam, and thinks that they [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove Need More Love]] as characters. That said, she seconds the idea of a "Team Rocket" thing.

* The title character of ''[[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball]]''. He has everything I love in a cartoon character: he's funny, he has a girlfriend, he loses a lot. He's my favorite main cartoon character introduced in this decade. Unlike a lot of other main cartoon characters, he actually got the girl he wanted and he's only 12! He was smart about it and loyal to the end. Never have I laughed harder and more consistently at the main characters in a kid's cartoon.

* [[TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan Stanley friggin' Chan]]. One of the wackiest characters ever to grace American animation, funny and crazy and corny and goofy and it's impossible not to laugh when he's on screen. Plus, he's rather attractive in his own right...not like Henry, but easy on the eyes nonetheless.

* Although Joey Felt and AP are an awesome duo, the clear best character in ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'' is Pauline Bell. Cute design, sassy attitude, surprisingly badass when it calls for it ("Sword Sisters" was a pure MomentOfAwesome for her), and a reliable friend to Joey. Here's to hoping she gets more screentime in Season 2.



** Hedonismbot is one of the best minor characters in the show. Every debaucherous thing he says and does is just like him -- made of gold. He's also got a pretty unique design and a distinctive voice, courtesy of Maurice Lamarche. "I apologize for nothing!"
** Morbo will destroy you all! Seriously, he's one of the funniest minor characters on the show, and that's ''really'' saying something in a huge cast of memorable characters.



** Luan is pretty dang {{adorkable}} and her puns are as eye-rolling as they are fun.
* ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks''
** Martha. She's a completely non-humanised TalkingAnimal. Speaks like a human but sees the world from a ''dog'''s perspective. That's good writing and also comedy. She even gets rid of her cat prejudice in "There Goes the Neighbourhood".
** T.D. He's quirky, smart, energetic, funny, and optimistic.
** Milo Lee. Especially how he doesn't get tired.
** Kitten. He's a CuteKitten and he helped Martha shed her prejudices.
** Alice Boxwood. She's TheKlutz and athletic at the same time.
** Helen Lorraine. She's polite (usually), shy but with high self-esteem, and a FriendToAllLivingThings. She also likes sports and art at the same time.



* ''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''!



* [[WesternAnimation/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 usually 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 [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] [[SeasonalRot from the more modern seasons]]



* [[WallaceAndGromit Gromit]] is one of the most interesting, endearing and consistently entertaining animated characters I have ever seen. The fact he has no mouth and cannot speak only ''adds'' to this. Wallace is awesome in his own right, but the shorts would be nothing without the mouthless, facepalming canine sidekick.

* 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.



** The [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits runaways]], both as a group and individually. Tye's got a BattleAura [[SomeKindOfForceField Force Field]], an unstable [[AbusiveParents home life]], and is Jaime's friend. Ed's the [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleporting]] son of a zeta beam scientist, and has DaddyIssues as well as being a [[InvertedTrope Son]] [[PapaWolf Wolf]]. Sam's got a unique version of BlowYouAway and [[BilingualBonus can't speak English]]. Virgil [[ShockAndAwe shoots lightning]], [[LeeroyJenkins doesn't stop to think]], and [[JumpedAtTheCall genuinely wants to be a hero]]. They get very little screen time, but are very well developed and have a great group dynamic.
