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