As a counter to this thread (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=238796), lets bring in some character love, shall we? :D Lets see if love and happiness can overpower the hate thread! But I highly doubt it OTL

So for me~

Everyone seems to hate Dawn in Pokemon. She's actually not too bad, especially if you watch the Japanese version. She's like, the female version of Ash from the first season. Its pretty interesting to watch, especially if you notice how mature Ash is in comparison to her. Her existence just shows everyone how much Ash has grown over the course of the series <3

Also, everyone hates on Bella from Twilight. While I can see why (especially with the fad to hate all things Twilight), I actually didn't hate her too much. I did in the movies, but thats because they killed her character. She was a dorky, clumsy, half goth girl. The movie turned her into... some weird, awkward... thing. I hated it. But in the books, she was actually a bit entertaining at times. I thought she was fun. (But I do admit the books suck, she is a Mary Sue, and Edward is a sparkly fishie. But I don't hate Bella like everyone else does)

I also like Amy Rose from Sonic. She's such a stalker, its hilarious. And I also love her due to playing her so much in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle... and winning the races, regardless of her being the slowest playable character :3 <3

I also see people hating on... a LOT of Hetalia characters. I like them all (except Liechtenstein). :I They're fun <3

I like Liechtenstein.

It's a small country. That makes it cool.


I'm hosting a Hetalia photoshoot, and I don't know anything about it. =D

I like the country itself. Her character just bothers me XD;; Cute country, though. I've seen pictures :3

Dawn and Amy Rose kick ass! I think Dawn is awesome. She's way cooler than any of the last female main characters in Pokemon. My girlfriend says I have a thing for the bad characters because I always go for villains/neutral characters. I don't like them because they're villains or anything I just think their personalities are more realistic than heroes. Oh one of the characters that I think is pretty cool that's extremely hated is Uchiha Sasuke even though I think every character's fan base is kinda mixed, but I think he would count.

so everyone was bashing lightning and the cast of final fantasy xiii. I personally love the game and characters and the storyline so everyone who bashes them can go suck a big one. Damn that's mean but they shouldn't bash on that game i love the game. i will throw down someone if i get into a debate with someone about ffXiii i will break out my sabre from color guard and slice and dice. then i will get my whole color guard team with flags and rifles and beat them up. I get the only sabre because i'm a beast. Breaking out a can of whoop butt. But the point is i love final fantasy thirteen and everything about it. square enix made a good game.

Shadow the Hedgehog.

Well, people in Sonic fandom seem to hate him but then again they hate anything in 3D which has Sonic with green eyes, so whatever. But the general consensus about Shadow is that he's just another Sonic but with extra emo and a ~tragic storyline~. Well, he's my emo. I was glad to see someone in the series with more to him than "I run really fast and I'm always happy WHERE ARE MY CHILI DOGS TAILS?!".

And I know of a fair few people who hate Gary Oak but for stupid reasons, like AshxMisty shippers not accepting AshxGary or whatever. So I don't even pay attention to them. Come back to me when you have solid reasoning, okay.

I'm trying to think of any character I love who is hated...

The closest I can get is a character who's ignored more than anything else. Kris, the playable female trainer from Pokemon Crystal, the girl with the cute blue ponytails. Poor girl has only appeared in a single game and didn't even make it into the remakes - and I remember being so excited when she appeared for the first time because you could FINALLY play as a girl! I think she's the only playable Pokemon trainer who straight-up looks like an anime character, with her awesome blue hair and all. Everyone else has much more natural colors, which is why I'm guessing they replaced her.

It seems that the people who like her *really* do, and don't seem to care for the new girl character they replaced her with in the remakes.

You can't take someone's dislike of something you like personally, not a game at least, it's just silly. Shouldn't be on this thread either. Even criticism on things I made don't irk me, for something you don't make, you shouldn't care about anyone else's opinion if you enjoyed it.. nor should you ever get defensive or judge anyone by what movies, games, books ect.. they like and dislike. If everyone were the same, thing sure would be boring, cosplay would be as varied as black and white checkered tiling. Someone who hates Lighting could love Snow, or vice versa, works well in photos, though. Others could love Dissidia, but hate some of the final fantasys, does it make a difference? :drunk:

Hmm, I guess Lelouch, I just really like him, but I've only ever seen him get hated on :(

Also, Shirley, maybe it's just my friends but they don't seem to like her. I think she's nice....

I also really like Light (death note) who everyone thinks is an ass xD

Yukikittie
04-13-2011, 02:21 PM
Shirley from Code Geass.
Alois from Kuroshit II.
Takano from Higurashi no naku koro ni.
Light from Death Note.
So much hate. ;~; I also hate it how I like all the bad guys. It's not like I'm rooting for them or something, I just admire how evil and cunning they are.
But I mean come on now, Shirley didn't do anything wrong. She was only in the way of your damn Lelouch/Rolo pairing, admit it. >_>

EDIT;
WAIT, can we do VOCALOID too?!
If that's the case, Miku, and Lily.
First of all, Miku can not be a bitch because canon-ly she is a voice and nothing more. There is no set personality to her. Same with Lily.
Although I honestly just think it's the 'New VOCALOID syndrome', where a ton of people are like, "OMG THIS VOCALOID SOUNDS/LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE BLABLABLA, Y U NO MORE CREATIVE?!"

Sakura Haruno from Naruto-
Although allot less people hate her now, I still liked her back when everyone else hated her(if that counts?) and I see why people hated her at first, and I really didn't like her ether but after she cuts her hair and that whole time they are in the "forest of death" she shows amazing character development and from chapter 53 on I absolutely love her.
Allot more people like her after the time skip, but she still scores way below the rest of the main characters in the annual popularity polls.

Xion from Kingdom Hearts-
I mean, I know that whole game is a mess but I seriously didn't think Xion was any of the things people call her. She is essentially Sora's memory of Kairi, so she behaves allot like how I imagine Kairi would (and I like Kairi). I thought she worked hard, loved her friends, and made a sacrifice for the greater good.

Suou Pavlichenko form Darker than BLACK-
allot of people didn't like Suou, or the whole second season of Darker Than BLACK, and yeah, it wasn't that great but I never saw any problem with Suou, aside from any normal quality a young teenager might have.

Shinji Ikari from Evangelion. Maybe not "love", but I liked him.

Nanami and Saionji from Utena. I really love Nanami, she is one of my favorite anime characters. And do most people not like Anthy? Because she's up there at the top. Brilliant character.

I'm sure there are others, but those are the first that come to mind. I don't normally keep track of what's un/popular in all this stuff.

Well, I don't know about "hated", probably more like "underrated", but I think Waluigi(from the Mario games) is awesome. However, it seems many people seem to see him as an "unneccesary, pointless side character" or something. Well... I also hate how he's only playable in spinoffs(which, aside from Mario Kart, I don't play), there's just so much wasted potential with the character... not as much as a cameo in a non-spinoff! But otherwise than that... Waluigi is cool.

I can only hope for a Waluigi game... or at least a semi-important minor role for him in a non-spinoff Mario/Wario game.

Yuno from Magical Lyrical Nanoha.

Apparently enough people disliked him that he was written out of StrikerS almost entirely in spite of being the main love interest. NanoFate shippers practically want the poor thing dead.

But goddamnit, how do you hate a practical little man who gives up his uber-weapon to an elementary schooler because he recognizes he kind of sucks at using it, defies gender roles by becoming the token "staff girl" AND the "library wench" and periodically turns into a ferret?!

Is Yuno not adorable, balanced, helpful and kind?

I can only chock people hating him up to reverse yaoi syndrome: the desire to destroy every remotely threatening opposite sex character in a predominately single-sex desireable-character buffet.

But wait -- Nanoha is like... EIGHT O-o;;; ARGH! Why is anyone threatened by ferrets over 8 year olds?! I don't get it.

Yuno Love!!!!!
YUUUUNO!!!! *clutches stuffed toy*

yes i overreacted and don't tell me what to do. but thanks you made a point that i shouldn't judge others for bashing. well i see the errors of my ways so thanks. i apologize to everyone for being a be-otch. so sorry. your right about one thing i liked the game and to not care what others think. so i don't care what those people said. I love final fantasy xiii lightning especially.

04-13-2011, 07:23 PM
Lighting was cool, Hope and Vanille were annoying at first, so was Snow to some extent, but they all grew as characters and I started to like them more. Sazh (sp) was always cool though. By the end I liked them all.

I WAS BAWLING AT THE END. My cousin liked him too.

I love her and her fashion sense. I think a lot like her sometimes, so it's hard for me to hate her.

Honestly, I tend to like characters that are cute and obnoxious to the point where people hate them. XD
Lizzy from Kuroshitsuji? Only character that comes to mind right now.

OH MY GOD. ILIA. I loved her! I don't understand how people hated her....;-; My own friends included...

Padme and Anakin from the prequel trilogies.

Okay, yes Natalie Portman had pretty much checked out by the third movie and Anakin was a whiny bitch but I still liked the characters a lot. In fact, I love the prequel trilogy.

Dr. Manhattan from the Watchmen. Yes, he's a jerk. But I feel bad for him x.x Everyone I know hates him.

Jean Grey gets a strong opinion on both sides. I love her though. She's my favorite (I'm a Phoenix fanatic)

Hope from Final Fantasy XIII. He was my favorite character. I thought his development was awesome, and I just don't understand why people don't like him. Oh well.

First off thank you Axelai for making this thread. :D

Kairi!!!!! OMG, my whole con seemes full of Kairi hatters with 1% acctually liking her. I think it's mostly because they are huge yoai fans, but I'm sick and tired of hearing that she's boring, lazy, stupid, gets in the way, etc. I could spend an entire post on why her character is esential to the whole game. For one, the first game would have had no point as Sora would have no reason to go from different worlds except to get Rikku's head back on straight. Not to mention the whole trinity thing that is so important to the game (yes Sora, Kairi and Rikku are a trinity not just Sora, Donald and Goofy) and any one can see she is the LIGHT that helps bring everyone back from the darkness. I blame square-enix for being afraid of giving her a bigger role and making a female lead long before Lightning stepped on the scene. I'll just leave this here and save the rest for a rainy day. ;)

Winry!! Why the hate? She is like one of the good things about FMA. She helps break up all the serious drama and sometimes desturbing moments. She stands up for what she believes in and won't let anyone sway her from her goal. It's also kinda refreshing to see Ed, Al, and her acting like they don't have to worry about life and death situations every once in a while.

Yuna! I only have issues with her in FFX-2 and I'm not alone there. I think she is a great character to have and the love story with her and Tidus is great as well. Personaly I like Rikku better, but it's only cause she's most like my personality. Yuna has a great personality and even though she can only summon, her summons can kick major but. Have you used Anima?

Yuffie,and Tifa are really fun to fight with. Yeah Yuffie is annoying at first, but she grows on you. Tifa is just all around awsome. I was begging Cloud to ditch Aeris for her.

I think that's all I can think of right now. I may come back. (hopefully I made sense and wasnt too disjointed ;))

Winry really shines in Brotherhood, I think. She was more or less there to be 'the girl' in the first animated series. All she really did was cry and hit Ed with a wrench. In Brotherhood though you get to watch her grow into a very strong young woman. I really enjoyed her so much more in Brotherhood.

Not so much hated as just under-appreciated, but Iroha Nekomura (http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Iroha_Nekomura) (the Sanrio and AH-Software collaboration Vocaloid). I love her character design to death and her voice really surprised me! She's not all high pitched like you'd expect; her voice is so pretty. Yet I can't find a single cosplayer of her (though I can see why; must be killer to make her helmet and hand-speakers. xD) and she has hardly any music. I love her so much, I wish other people did too. ;A;

I WILL find a way to cosplay her! ...Somehow. Eventually. >A>;

Oh, pretty much all my favorite characters, especially my Gundam ones. Ghinius Sakhalin, Quess Paraya, Kishiria Zabi, Giren Zabi, Cima Garahau (granted the fandom is more split 50/50 on her, but still), hell it might be easier to name the characters I like that *aren't* treated as the devil incarnate by the fandom. Quess especially is one of the most despised names in the Universal Century, so much so that I've been insulted because oh noez, how dare someone like *her*! And Ghinius is my favorite to end all favorites, so imagine how well that goes over with people who refuse to see him as anything other than a 1-dimensional monster. I've essentially been told I'm stupid for liking a character "no one's supposed to like" and that I should like a more worthy character like Char or whoever.

On a related note, I have a friend who likes and cosplayed Relena who got harassed out of a Gundam Wing meet for it. They told her to "come back when you cosplay someone who's actually cool!" or some shit. When you hate a character so much that you harass and insult people who cosplay her, you have a problem. Seriously (granted the Relena hate in general was/is taken to ridiculous levels, especially in Wing's hayday. All because she got in the way of a largely imagined yaoi pairing :/ ).

Alois from Kuroshitsuji II.

Oh gosh. It's amazing how people around me hated him because he wasn't "an original". Really? That's just ridiculous. Then the whole poking-out-Hannah's-eye thing in the very first episode. To be honest, that's how I came to love that little blonde. ;)

Claude Faustus from Kuro, too.

Again with the whole he's not an "original" and that "he's trying to be like Sebastian" crap. As much as I dislike him for doing what he did to Alois in episode 7-8, I love his character. That's what I call a demon!

Oh! I love Kurumi from Kimi ni Todoke.

I always see her get so much hate for just liking Kazehaya and wanting to be with him. Of course she also did bad things but come onnnn. I love her character because it's so...real.

I love Rossiu from TTGL. Hey, man, he was just making decisions. He was being a politician. And he even felt bad about that shit.
And I love Rossiu and Kinon. My boyfriend and I are totally going to cosplay them one day.

I love Tingle from Zelda. I mean, seriously, any Tingle cosplayer has to have balls the size of Europa. He's just so creepy and weird! I love it.

Shelke from FFVII: DoC. I don't know why so many hate her. I like her overall character and her outfit is awesome. Though not really a fan of the Shelke x Vincent pairing.

Yay! Another person who liked her!

I kind of hate Amy specifically because of SA2:B. XD I have a friend who every time we played that game she's Amy and I'm Shadow. And she beats me EVERY TIME. I got so angry at her once from the fact that she kept winning that I hit her in the head with my controller. o.o And I am NOT an angry person.

Um, Near from Death Note? Not that I particularly like Death Note (good show, just the hype's kinda ruined it for me), it's just when I first watched the show I thought Near was pretty awesome. Lots of people say it's because he was just replacing L but maybe it's because I knew L was gonna die from the beginning? On the reverse of that, I thought Mello was a creeper but everyone's in love with him! So weird.

Not that people really hate him, they're just creeped out by him, but I love Kimbley from Fullmetal Alchemist. : D Which is strange, since usually with villains like that I'm like "WHY WON'T YOU JUST DIE?" XD But he's just so creepy and awesome, especially in the manga! : D (In the anime he just pissed me off for trying to blow up Al. >: (

And like Flora said, Tingle from Legend of Zelda. Why does everyone hate him so much? He helps you out and he's just made of awesome.

Oh, sorry if I spoiled anything for anyone. ^^;

Sailor Chibi Moon // ChibiUsa from Sailor Moon. She's actually my first cosplay. e.e; I used to hate her - but it was because of the dub's use of her character. They turned her into this horrid, horrid brat that was just horrible and her voice actress scared and confused me, because I kind of liked her but I kind of didn't. It's like having mixed feelings about nails on chalkboard. D: But her character in the original was much better and I related to her a lot more, she was much more mature and fun. But most people cannot stand her for the same reasons I used to hate her.

And pretty much everyone from DragonBall Z. ;3 I noticed they were getting some hate in the other thread. But I love DragonBall Z.

Tadase from shugo chara, I don't see why people hate him. I usually see them call him "gay" but he likes amu. Then people complain how he only loved "amulet heart" but what he really like was amu showing her true self for a second. People also bash him for being to girly, well he is just a elementary school student, he is still growing (notice how he gets taller then amu) he is a very nice guy, that stays by amus side. And when he crys people bash him, he is just a lil kid, who acts beyond his maturity level, that there is impressive, when he is stressed or upset, let him cry and act his age for a lil bit, no need to bash him.

Iroha Nekomura, already said,I think people didn't like her at first is because they were exspecting kei's design to be it. people also complained how low her voice was and didt match the design, well I like it, not all girls are high pitched. Then people bashed about her design.... Personally it's pretty original. I like iroha, I hope I see cosplays of her soon.

I love Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club. Everyone only really cares for the twins and honey.
I love Haruhi from Melancholy of.... Her and Kyon remind me of me and my boyfriend when I went to high school.(please notice I said remind and not that we are identical) I was usually up to crazy things, did what I wanted, and said what I wanted, but my poor boyfriend had to go around apologizing for my behavior. XD
I love Sephiroth, hate on it.

Kikyo has a huge hatedom. I like her character in the flashbacks, when she was still alive. I do hate the reanimated Kikyo but not as much as a lot of people. I never hated Kagome but did find her annoying sometimes. Although Sango was always my favorite character.

KRORY!!!!! D':> (from D. gray man) I've mostly only heard hate from my friends and around the internet about him :'D they find him annoying, but i like his character xD it's cute how he doesnt know anything about the world at first and makes all these faux pas xD

and YAY! I see more people who like Howard Link!!!! admittedly, at first i was like "who the HELL is THAT >.>" but in the end i began to like his character more and still do, but tons of people still hate him >.> yeesh! i mean for doodley's sake-- i agree witht he previous comments... he's jsut doing what he's told!

ALSO. just about any female FF character (except Aeris :'D). they're COOL okay. Tifa isnt just boobs and a skirt! she's tough and sweet and caring. and I dont get all the Yuna hate either... whats with it? they're not annoying... in my opinion at the very least.

And still on FF, HOPE! he's little annoying at the start- but he was scared and his mum had just died! wouldnt you be a little bit cranky and scared?! D: his character developed quite nicely to me and he DID get over his revenge ideas.

Xion :(
a lot of people see her and think "Ugh, a FEMALE member of the organization? she must be a SUE!" or some crap like that. I like her character! >.< if you minus the emo time, she's actually pretty decent. also, if she were a male character, im sure tons of people would love her :S but yeah.

same goes for Kairi. I dont love her per se, but i have an appreciation for her that a lot of KH fans (often the more yaoi loving ones :'D) dont share xD a lot of crap is said about Kairi but come on... she's not too terrible is she?.... is she? S:

Naruto Uzumaki.

Most people follow the trend of hating the character, and while there are merits to following the trend when it comes to people cosplaying the character, I actually really admire the fictional character.

The drive, and motivation of him has managed to inspire me to pull myself out of more than my share of emotional funks and situational jams in my life.

but yeah. she's a little poppy and annoying but she's just being positive i guess :'D and BESIDES? Would it even BE a Final Fantasy without an annoying bubbly girl?!?!?!!?!?

and one final thing. she's not slutty for what she wears >.< it's part of her 'culture' and also it's based of off a real tribe-- the women of the Himba tribe. are they slutty? nope. it's jsut their culture. so stop calling vanille a skank :(

Also, Excalibur from Soul Eater. I think he's hilarious. I also think he's annoying, but it's more humorous that my friends despise him so much. XD

Let's see...who else?
Shinji - Evangelion
Suou - Darker than Black second season
Light - Death Note
Lelouch - Code Geass

And so many more...who are often villains.

Yagami Light from Death Note, he's just too awesome. He get's waaayy too much hate.
Bernkastel from Umineko. She didn't appear too much in the anime, so I don't really think anyone who watched the anime hates her, but man, it seems like... every single person who read the Visual Novel hates her. I think she's a very intresting character, and she DOES have a reason why she's so cold hearted.
Also Erika Furudo from Umineko, I don't LOVE her, but she really made Umineko even more intresting so I don't dislike her either, I like her, that's it.

and then... I don't really have any problems with Anzu in the original Yu-gi-oh! manga but idk....

Rouge from Sonic. I know she's a whorish bat girl, but she's one of my favorites :/ I really don't like ShadowXRouge though. I'm a KnucklesXRouge shipper... sort of...

Orihime Inoue! Come on she's not entirely useless! She's got... friggen fairies! plus she's cute, naive, and eats crazy foods :3

In Hetalia I like Sealand and Canada, but people don't really /hate/ them...
and also with ignored characters I like Haku, Zabuza (from Naruto), Xaldin (Kingdom Hearts. I love this british guy~), Meiko, Luka, and Gumi (Vocaloid)

Of all of the characters in FFXIII he's the only one I can find not one single likeable thing about that isn't just a symbol of how MEN (in capital letters) ought to be: big, muscley, "cool", violent, brave, rebellious, protective, charismatic and dumb. He's everything Japanese boys are taught from birth is awesome and desireable about high school dropout bleach-haired jerktards... right down to the noisy, ostentatious ride and the cute, softspoken staffgirl girlfriend who just wants to be loved.

His character is about as deep as a steak being waved around on a stick.

Explain yourselves!

Geez didn't expect folks to get so worked up on that one XD lol !

I don't believe Snow is as stereotypical as some of you might believe,as to male gender,he does have his doubts and "weak" moments so he's not as overbearing testosterone as he might look like,as for "getting old with the hero and Serah stuff" hey he's got his motivations...doesn't love count for something these days ? Snow reminds me of my husband,very misunderstood fiery passionate guy who's just trying to do right by the people he loves...he does try to be strong for everyone which isn't necessary on his part but it works as part of his motivation...a lot of the game is played through Lightning's point of view to which you can receive all that hatred she has against Snow...but if you were to flip it around...wouldn't you see Light as the one hating on Snow ? more because she couldn't be there for Serah as much as she would have wished...anywho I'm getting caught on semantics here...

As far as what men are taught to be these days actually,I'd go for saying without a doubt that they're taught how to be cookie cutter football thumping date scoring personality lacking losers who are uneducated sheep who rebel in the fact that they dont know anything or follow any subjects of real meaning.

Also Kyuubey from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. I don't love him, per say, but I don't hate him either. I actually rather liked him because I thought he was a pretty great character in general, not to mention he brings some of the best plot twists in the Madoka series.

I can't say he is my favorite, but I like him too. It's sad people you know don't like him. Without him there wouldn't be quite as good a story to KHII. I also felt sorry for him. It's not his fault he was born and then told he wasn't suppposed to exist.

This is more an actor than a character, but I honestly don't find Shia Lebouf to be as annoying as most people do. I feel like he has a lot of potential that he's really rarely touching. There are certain moments in some of his better movies where he's actually really good. But then he goes into Transformers mode and it gets kinda blown then.

There are certain moments in some of his better movies where he's actually really good. But then he goes into Transformers mode and it gets kinda blown then.
Shia Labeouf is a decent actor, he's just in everything that happens to be balls.

It's funny to see some hate for some characters on this. when it's suppose to be about loving the character, not everyone likes the same character, opinions on why you don't like a character, should be posted on the hate thread.

You know what? Everyone seems to automatically jump on the female lead in a lot of shonen anime/manga. She's usually gentle, feminine, innocent, naive, optimistic, etc. What is so unlikeable about these character traits in a woman?? Seriously, guys. I understand that some people dislike the whole "damsel in distress" thing, but a lot of people write the character off as being "annoying." Not every female character can be a hot badass.

Depending on the charter, I don't easily develop a dislike for a character, however, innocent character I do like, they bring a bit of light on the story (Elizabeth from black butler for example, I love her)

Point is, I can think of WAY worse characters, and he really doesn't deserve half the bad rap he gets. Poor Joshua.

Oh yeah, while I'm at it, I think Lexaeus (KH) is epic. Other people don't really hate him, BUT NO ONE KNOWS WHO HE IS. I mean, c'mon, people! He was there the WHOLE TIME! Did you just forget about him? Sigh.

I think if you watched a lot of anime, you would notice where the feelings come from. I studied this stuff for my degree, and the rampant use of weak female characters in series is really just a symptom of Japan's culture.... one which is rather infuriating from a Western prospective where we are now in favour of females standing on their own (more and more) instead of always being the damsel in distress.

I mean the ratio of strong to weak female characters is really out of wack. Usually strong females also tend to be more "maleish" as well.

Then there's Crux from Final Fantasy Unlimited. My brother was so disappointed when she didn't die at the end. Crux needs more fans...

A lot of people hate Tohru. They all say she's so weak and helpless, WHEN SHE IS THE STRONGEST CHARACTER I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS. Dude, it is so much easier to just hate everyone. I would have tried to stab Akito in the face numerous times than making an attempt to connect and communicate. I love her to death despite the hate she gets. I think people can't look beyond her cheerful smile to see how much pain she's in and how strong her heart is.
^I love Tingle!! He's hilarious. I love him so much XD <3
Tingle is legit my favorite annoying character. <3


I love absolutely everyone to death in Puella Magi Madoka Magica, but Kyubey and Madoka get a lot of hate. Okay, Kyubey is the antagonist and all, but I still found him very interesting (AND ADORABLE). He was a very different kind of villain. And everyone says Madoka is just some girl who cries and lets all the other girls save her. I really don't agree with that. =/

Everyone also hates Colette from Tales of Symphonia. I feel like I'm the only one who loves her. Dx

I know he's a pain when playing Crisis Core, though there's something about his snide attitude I like. And when I cosplay him I don't appreciate the hate comments of, "omg it's Genesis" (in a bad way) or "ew" or "ugh" or what have you. I know he's a pain, you don't have to rub it in!

I've been playing Mass Effect 2 again and I think Zaeed may be one of my favourite characters now. Most people I've heard from don't seem to like him but I love him. I love his war stories, his sense of humour, his voice acting (that gruff british voice esspecially). Plus he's just great in combat, I nearly always take him now along with Jack (my other fav, I just love the no nonsense badasses). While he may not have as much back story as others like Garus or Mordin since he's a simple merc, everytime you talk to him he has something interesting to say. He really does seem like true veteran, a real badass.
Reminds me of my own character; and thats why I love him.

I'm thinking that people, at least the ones I hang around, absolutely hate Barry the Chopper, Solf J. Kimblee, and Gluttony from Fullmetal Alchemist. They are my three favorite characters (but not in that order...), and I don't see why. Barry's hilarious, albeit homicidal, Kimblee's just completely insane (and who doesn't love crazy?) and Gluttony, he's good for comic relief, as well as a semi competent villain, so why all the hate?

As a counter to this thread (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=238796), lets bring in some character love, shall we? :D Lets see if love and happiness can overpower the hate thread! But I highly doubt it OTL

So for me~

Everyone seems to hate Dawn in Pokemon. She's actually not too bad, especially if you watch the Japanese version. She's like, the female version of Ash from the first season. Its pretty interesting to watch, especially if you notice how mature Ash is in comparison to her. Her existence just shows everyone how much Ash has grown over the course of the series <3

I completely agree with you on the whole Dawn thing. She's actually one of my favorite characters in Pokemon. I think one of the reasons people hate her is just because she's from the newer episodes. But I'm glad to see someone else appreciates her :bigtu:

Misa from Death Note. She's annoying sometimes but most of the time I find her hilarious. She adds some much needed comic relief. I also believe she is a lot smarter than she seems.

Everyone hates Navi from Loz: Ocarina of Time, but I love her. XD; She's annoying sometimes, but I like the story behind her. She's actually fascinating, if you think about the whole fairy thing with the Kokiris, and the reason she's with Link.

Well most of my favorite characters are villains so they get hated on a lot but...

I absolutely love Bellatrix Lestrange from HP. Yes, she's a murderous b- who has killed and tortured people because of twisted elitist ideals but she is also a strong female warrior who dedicated her life to a cause that she loved and believed in. Not only that but she also remained loyal to Voldemort through his "death" and disappearance ANd she died the kind of death she had always wanted, not wasting away in Azkaban but fighting for her lord.

Another villain I love is Azula from Avatar. Her character is simply amazing, her fighting style unique, her personality fearless and the ending where she goes crazy is heartbreaking real.

Akito from fruits basket is almost universally hated and I don't know why. Sure she stabs Tohru but she also is a strong female lead who has been forced into a demanding role from the moment she was born. Her crazy mother certainly was no help and although I love Shigure too he wasn't much help either.
I also love Nnoitra from Bleach but I have no defense for his behavior. I simply love him for no reason.

I have a secret cavity in my heart reserved specifically for characters who initially appear charming and free-spirited to later reveal themselves as sadistic, apathetic monsters or otherwise violently unsettling for any number of other reasons.


Liiiike, Ophelia from Claymore.
She's a smiling, sadistic, profoundly disturbed box of frogs with the empathetic capacity of a moray eel who eeeeveerryone seems to h@te verily in the Claymore community.
...Description above probably being why most people didn't like her. But I thought she was hilarious and interesting ;A;
Sure, she amputates Clare on multiple occasions and has no regard for life whatsoever, but any one who barters information in exchange for someone tearing apart her body in a set amount of time is A-okay in my book.


-Kurotsuchi Mayuri from Bleach.
I've kind of fallen out with Bleach as of the past year or so, but oh my God, I think this character is delightful; he's just so deliciously amoral and frightening I don't understand how you're not able to love him for his sheer ability to remain stably employed despite the evil, evil things he does. I went through the exhausting Arrancar arc just for him. Loyalty, righ' heer.


-Medusa from Soul Eater.
She's hands down my favorite character in Soul Eater, although I totally understand the affluent hate for the character- Medusa is a pathologically lying, manipulative, immortal and immoral heartless reptile who is just as bad an ally as she is a mother (which she's really bad at). And I love her for it.
Oh, and Excalibur is awesome. I don't know what them other peeps be sayin', but they hard stoopid.
...Or hard stool. Hard stoopid, hard stool, both are applicable and appropriate descriptions of those who aren't aware Holy Sword be where it's at.


-Tohru Honda.
Don't h@t3 on fictional people I adore ;3;~ I didn't think her a mary sue or a two dimensional goody-two-shoes with no depth or weight, but as a shy, kind girl who through a combination of terrible circumstances and a reluctance to make trouble for other people endured quite a bit of hardship before being given a needed handout where she proceeded to make the best of her situation. I found her character inspiring, honestly, and I occasionally consult Fruits Basket to remind myself how far a little compassion and efforts to understand people can go.


-Anthy Himemiya.
I was really surprised to find that there was relatively widespread dislike of Anthy, considering how affected I was by her (or just RGU overall; I love the series); when you're struck to the effect of 'Wow, this was really well done', it's easy to call blasphemy on those that don't share your appreciation. I think it might be largely credited with how complex and multifaceted of a character she is- Anthy is definitely one of the more (or most) convoluted characters in Revolutionary Girl Utena. And in RGU, everyone is a generously portioned bowl of fruit-loops.
She goes from affecting a Yamato Nadeshiko air with whom she is currently engaged, a sort of simultaneously disillusioned-but-still-childishly-innocent personality around confidantes, to a detached passive-aggressor until being ultimately portrayed as a emotionally-bewildered girl with no solid concept of how to socially interact with other people. That's a lot of layers to swallow in 39 episodes.
*Shrugs* Whatevs, though, by the end of Utena I either liked or loved the entire cast. Saionji had his moments, but he ended up just too pathetic and baww-worthy to conjure any strong feelings of dislike.



...Whoa, why are nearly all of the characters I listed women? :1
I feel sexist now.
Can I include Lloyd Asplund from Code Geass, despite that I don't think he had a lot of prevalent dislike? A lot of people seemed to be more weirded out by him than anything; he was just a smiley, eccentric scientist who dehumanized his clients to deal with the pain of losing comrades in a combat zone, and I really liked him. I especially liked his dub, if anything because EVERYTHING Liam O'Brien seems to take on end up being full of great.


EDIT:
Whoa, page-stretcher. Sorry about that. Weaboo alert, guys; I got serious.

Alot of people also seem to hate on her mother; I like the mother. I had disliked her in the begining from the fact she would take her anger on Maria, but I started liking her after I saw how she acted in one ark.
I also love Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket, I find her character strong and motivating. I know if I was in her place I wouldn't be able to smile as often as her.

Vicious from Pokemon. I thought he was one of the better movie villains--heck, one of the better villains from the entire anime. When J came along she became super popular, but Vicious really did everything she did, and years before. Plus he has an awesome outfit and the idea of a high-ranking traitor Rocket has endless potential. He's really everything a lot of fandom Rockets are--amoral, cruel, badass--and yet gets hated. Why? I don't know. Apparently he's ugly or something, idk (come on people, we only see him without his mask one time and he looked pretty average).

And this one is weird because he actually has tons of fans, but I think a lot of people misunderstand Cyrus. The fans tend to be people who really saw more in him, but there's a lot of people who take him at face value. Especially that terribly out of character line in Platinum where he says that he plans to take the new world only for himself--I've known people who ONLY played Platinum who could tell how out of character that was. But sadly, the show's writers seemed to stop at that line and run with it, having him literally be the only thing that existed in his new creation. That's horrible! Especially when you consider that he said in the games that he'd never "go off somewhere alone" and that there would be tons of other people in his new world. The guy truly thought he was helping everyone by eliminating a flawed universe and creating one free of strife. He's wrong, of course, but his heart was in the right place. Just his mind was too insane to understand that maybe destroying everything wasn't the right way to go about it (he's probably the only Pokemon villain who's actually mentally ill, too. The rest of them really aren't).

I agree with you here. She's probably in my top 3 favorite characters in Death Note. She's defiantly a lot smarter than she's given credit for.

People seem to forget how she got all that information out of Higuchi. That was a very risky move that took a lot of quick thinking. Part of the reason she doesn't get enough credit is there's a bunch characters very high IQs in Death Note. It makes the characters with a more average IQs look like idiots.

As several others have said, Light Yagami from Death Note. D: Come on, people~! If the whole Kira thing was anyone's fault, it was Ryuk's for dropping the Note in the first place! Light just went kinda crazy after realizing that he killed two people.

Near. Again, from Death Note. Near gets a bunch of hate from people who say that he ruined the series. They're just whining because he was L's replacement. I love L as much as the next deranged fangirl, but it's no excuse to hate on Near~ :(

Shadow the Hedgehog.

Well, people in Sonic fandom seem to hate him but then again they hate anything in 3D which has Sonic with green eyes, so whatever. But the general consensus about Shadow is that he's just another Sonic but with extra emo and a ~tragic storyline~. Well, he's my emo. I was glad to see someone in the series with more to him than "I run really fast and I'm always happy WHERE ARE MY CHILI DOGS TAILS?!".

And I know of a fair few people who hate Gary Oak but for stupid reasons, like AshxMisty shippers not accepting AshxGary or whatever. So I don't even pay attention to them. Come back to me when you have solid reasoning, okay.

hes not really "emo" be more of the darker side of sonic. if he was emo he would be complaing about how he feels. more of hes the strong and silent type. while sonic could be seen as a peppy hero type and shadow could be the anti-hero.

but that really depends what verson your refering too, as a whole my idea fits but i have seen the old sonic cartoon so i can see where your coming from. the first time i saw shadow might have been on sonic X or the shadow the hedgehog video game. he is like the vageta of the sonic series.

Alois Trancy from Black Butler.
So he isn't Ciel and Sebastian and he's insane and maid-abusive.
I do think it's nice to have a literally insane character, instead of one who was insane for a couple of episodes, then became a fanservice-tool. And I think his character is much more complex than any; he's alot more than just 'A boywhore who is violent'.

But apparently the majority of the 'fans' of the second season don't see that. XD;;

Mello Keehl from Death Note. Throw mud pies at me all you want, but when I was obsessed with Death Note a few years ago, he was the man I fangirled over. Then I got attacked by all the Near and Light fans saying he was a gender-confused douchebag. I still stand by my decision of him as my favorite character. Haters gonna hate.

Toshiro Histugaya from Bleach. Most people hate this guy because he got so much attention, but I still loved him. I don't really know why I did but I just did. He was adorable and quite humorous. People hate characters for stupid reasons I suppose. They're just jealous he got his own movie. *puts on Troll sunglasses* DEAL WITH IT. :D

Ok, this is a bit of a blast from the past as I don't watch Pokemon anymore but Tracey. Really, I haven't seen so much hate as simply a preference for Brock. He was more normal and I liked his artistic side. He didn't rely on being over-the-top when admiring girls, he did so in a quiet way. As a side bonus while he was on I didn't have to listen to my mom's consent "no eyes" jokes about Brock.

Mika from Gravitation. Simply being female in a shonen-ai series gets her a lot of hate but she actually pretty cool. She doesn't "get in the way" of the yaoi pairing (although I think that's a really dumb reason to hate a character). I seen people argue that she does but it seems they can't look past her first appearance where it seemed she was Yuki's girlfriend when very soon afterwards we learn she's his sister. She is just a woman who wants her brother and father to make peace so maybe her family can be functional. The break the author took from Gravitation EX didn't help, she just had a baby and this had potential for some character development. Now that she's picked it back up we can see where it goes.

GIR is the favorite but Dib is the least favorite. I asked my friend who loves GIR how a robot that hardly has anything to do for the show and screams nonsense, though I do love GIR, is a better character than Dib. His reply "GIR is funny~"
So is Dib... :confused:
In the commentary on the Invader ZIM DVDS they constantly repeated the phrase "America hates Dib" I thought it was hilarious, but there was still a little tinge of sadness in there.

I don't hate him, but I know one of the writers favored him so a lot of the episodes were revolved so much around him.. sometimes it got a bit annoying seeing how it's "Invader Zim" not "Prying Dib" show. I think it was because Jhonen wanted so badly out of the show that he stopped writing near the end. All of Jhonen's writing for Dib episodes were amazing, made me love Dib --he also made Dib more of an idiot in his writing--.. if they weren't written by Jhonen, Dib really wasn't the same. He was a perfect character for the plot, he was suppose to be a bit annoying. The Tallest and the two Stupid Aliens will always be my favorites, though.:alien: Poor GIR is still being exploited by Hot Topic, Jhonen doesn't even get anything from the products, so it's hard to want to buy new products for a show that made my favorite artist and writer a miserable mess.

A lot of people dislike Berry from Tokyo Mew Mew A La Mode. I can see why, but still, I love her. :<

Ikr? I absolutely LOVE Mew Berry - that's why I'm cosplaying her.

A lot of people tend to hate her because she "overtook Ichigo as a leader when the existing Mews should have gotten it". To be honest is just crap because Ichigo went off to England and none of the other existing Mews seemed to "fit" as a leader.
Secondly, they hate her personality, which again don't know why as she seemed pretty normal - probably beause they think she's stuck up, which I completely disagree with.

I've mentioned my Berry cosplay a lot and many people seem to be very excited about me cosplaying her. But I just know there's going to be that odd person that is going to hate on me because I'm cosplaying a character they dislike. Too fucking bad.

I hate myself for buying the things I do from Hot Topic but it's not any of that lame Nerd GIR junk. I only buy things that have quotes from the show or only the character on it. I'm just so happy that ZIM fans have kept the series alive for so long after it's cancellation. I know Jhonen hated working on ZIM with all his being but makes me so happy to hear that he'd work on it in a heartbeat if they ever brought it back. I think the later episodes had more Dib in them since they were still getting ready for the Invader Dib movie and wanted the audience to know as much about him as they needed.

At first he was really liked, but now everybody hates him because of his dream of destroying Konoha and overall craziness. I still like him though
