New anime character tournament?

Post by Guest on Wed 15 Apr 2009 - 17:18

I was wondering if we could start a new tournament with something along the lines of "The worst anime character's of all time", unless people feel that there are too many threads with this already. I'm not really sure how this will be pulled off but I guess it could have the same layout as the current anime babes tournament. I only bring this up because I was reminded of a few anime characters that I absolutely despise.

Hmm...

The only nominee I can think of is Takumi Nishijō from Chäos;HEAd.

Hahahahahahahaha *cough* *choke* *still laughing*. Lol, he was probably the worst character I've ever seen.

This isn't a bad idea Dem, but I can't think of any characters off the top of my head that I've really hated - I guess I automatically block out the memory of them. Razz What characters did you have in mind?

I think that most of the characters in the anime babes thread can go into worst anime characters ever too. lol

How bout just worst shows

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I'm actually a hardcore otaku who likes maids more than having three meals in a day and I only read books related to maids. Also, I only visit maid cafes. Of course I also collect maid figurines, I play games which feature maids and it turns me on so much that I'll wear the maid uniforms and jump in joy.

I like that idea better. If there are bad characters it's likely because the writing for the show is lacking as well.

Well, I didn't really mean characters that you personally hated , but rather a character that made a potentially good series suck. At least that's my definition of a bad character, although I guess this is the reason why they're hated.

The worst anime character imo would have to be the anime version of Wrath in FMA. He gave absolutely nothing to the series; he only added to the confusion of that mess of an ending (I apologize to all FMA fans out there, but I think that the manga beats the anime in all aspects).
Another good one would have to be Rolo from Code Geass R2 (Lelouch's "brother"). That brother complex that he had going pretty much killed the awesomeness of the series, and I cheered out loud when he finally died.

I'm not sure Chäos;HEAd could be called "good", but Takumi Nishijō really did make it far less watchable for me.

Well I'm sure there are an enormous amount of bad characters, but it doesn't necessarily need to be all of them; just the worst of the worst, lol. Just like how there's a ton of anime babes, we only pick the ones we thought were the best out of the bunch.

Yes, Takumi made the series quite unbearable, and what made it worse was that all the girls in there were in love with his psychotic ass. And the plot (or theme, idk) felt like a rip off of Michael Chriton's Sphere.

...I'd totally nominate everyone from Kite... except for the unnamed girl with the basketball. The ending she facilitated made the pain of the rest of the movie worth it.

I think the problem with doing a what character do you hate tournament is that some characters are pretty devisive. And there's enough of a range of taste on this board that a character that one person hates could be one that another person really likes.

You mean something like an anime villians tourney? I was able to get 128 characters for mine without any problem. Razz

@Piero
Well see, it won't be a tournament based on which characters you hate the most (since that's based way too much on opinion), but rather on how "bad" of a character they were. And by that I mean
I earlier wrote:a character that made a potentially good series suck
It just so happens that they're so "bad" that most of the time we end up hating them.

@Ggultra2764
Nah, that's not what I meant, although that would also be an interesting tournament. Villains, or just a plain antagonist, are absolutely essential for all heroic stories. Also, most of the time they're the ones that make stories so good; they give the protagonist something to fight against and conquer, otherwise it'd just be a story about their daily life. And although in some cases people hate the villain, they don't make them hate the story nor do they make the story suck. Although I guess sometimes the villain fails horribly and makes the story suck.
(Excuse me for switching to the use of the word "story"; I had to use a broader term with respect to villains, since anime is not the only for of entertainment to have villains.)

Yeah, except Sphere wasn't lame, had a real plot, and was an interesting story.

I'll start a thread about it right now, I really like that idea.

Except for Takumi - I think we pretty much all hate him.

lol, I never implied that Sphere never had any of those qualities. I only said that Chaos;HEAd tried using their plot to a certain degree.

The book did.

The Hollywood adaption of said book, on the other hand... Yuck!
