The Top Ten

Kirito - Sword Art Online Abridged Kazuto Kirigaya is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

This Kirito is much better than the original. He actually has a personality.

A true 3-dimensional character, in contrast to the underdeveloped protagonist of the original. - MasonOcker

Better than Original himself

An *sshole but actually have character development.

Goku - DBZ Abridged Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Abridged Goku is an idiot. Almost everything he says & does is completely & utterly stupid & shortsighted. And I love it. In fact, if you notice Goku seems dumber in Dragon Ball Super than he did in series prior, it's actually because the popularity of his abridged counterpart influenced the writers of the official series. How awesome is that? - OPZoroark

Nappa - Dragon Ball Z Abridged Nappa is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

What started as a minor villain who didn't serve much purpose became a fan-favorite parody portrayed as the only character in the series to rival Goku's stupidity. Even death couldn't stop the amazing Nappa as he returned as a ghost to haunt Vegeta for an entire season after his demise & creating a hilarious parody of the "Ghost Busters" theme about himself. - OPZoroark

Meliodas - The Seven Deadly Schmucks
Killua Zoldyck - HA x HA

While this version of Killua still has a sadistic nature like most other parodies of the character, the Killua in HA x HA is set apart from the rest for being portrayed as extremely sassy & completely unsubtle of the fact that he's gay. He frequently flirts with Gon, who somehow always manages to misinterpret his innuendos. - OPZoroark

Tatsuya Shiba - The IrregularMENT at Magic High School

Abridged Tatsuya has a severe God complex. No, seriously. He actually thinks he's God. In addition to constantly bragging about himself, he actually tries to get Miyuki to knock off the creepy incest stuff. He fails, but at least he tries. - OPZoroark

Sheele - Akame Ga Kill Abridged

Sheele was probably the abridged series funniest character for a while. She takes on the role as the badass stoner, having some of the funniest quotes & moments in AGKA. She also regularly forgets where she is, ordering fast food from her teammates in the middle of a briefing because she thinks the base is a McDonalds. - OPZoroark

Kuroko Tetsuya - Kuroko no Basket Abridged (KNBA)

Abridged Kuroko is portrayed as a comically bland individual who enjoys hanging out with Kagami despite their staggering personality differences. He makes no attempts to lie about his history of being the Generation of Miracles' benchwarmer, simply because he doesn't care. When told that he's too vanilla, he responds by saying vanilla is his favorite flavor. It's a unique personality for a protagonist that I just think is really funny to watch play out. - OPZoroark

Klein - Sword Art Online Abridged Ryoutarou Tsuboi is a fictional character who appears in the Sword Art Online series of light novels by Reki Kawahara.

His screen name is permanently stuck as "BallsDeep69" throughout the entire series. It never gets old. - OPZoroark

Alucard - Hellsing Ultimate Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.
