Based on ModernSpongeBobSucks' Top Ten Anime Characters That Deserve to Be Hated the Most, I made one about respecting the anime characters. There may be varied competition between several anime characters.
1 Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop
See you space cowboy
Your gonna carry that weight
I can't decide between Spike and Riza. They both are so brace, fearless, and loyal to a fault. But I love Spike's backstory too much, it gave his character so much depth and respect
Not only one of the most iconic anime characters, but one of the most iconic FICTIONAL characters ever created. Definitely a well written character.
See you space cowboy... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
2 Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist

Best anime character of all time.
Without him, today's whole shounen genre would't be like this, or worse, wouldn't have even existed. Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Fairy Tail, Black Cat,... wouldn't for sure ( as they were all inspired by DBZ and Goku ), and they're some of the most popular nowadays. - Goku02
He deserved it
When he starts caring for his family like a real man and not ditch them whenever someone better to fight comes along, then he'll get my respect. He also needs to stop complaining about having to provide for his family. Such an idiot.
4 Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist
Riza Hawkeye is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

6 Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist
Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.
I wish He had more fighting time. Only 3 times he Really let loose and in ALL of them there was something holding him back, enemy too weak/hurt. Every time he fighting with fire he steals the seen Lust, Envy, Army Its always memorable, and the main character always teases him for being "too weak" - HydroTail
He looks badass.-LitSavage
He never wanted to take part in the Ishval war. His regret and dedication to make the world better again really makes him admirable.
Brilliant man with a plan

8 Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece
Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.
I hate it when people hate on him without watching One Piece just because he acts idiotic. Luffy has done a lot of great things, that made me respect him. He's the greatest protagonist ever - smill
9 Akame - Akame ga Kill
While she did kill, she didn't kill the innocent and only killed those who deserved to die, well, after joining Night Raid. She even realizes she would eventually get punished for her murders. - SelfDestruct
Akame is one of the best female she deserve to be number 1
Akame was doing the right thing

13 Roronoa Zoro

Overrated. He's only about getting stronger and tend to be too harsh and disreguard others. He rarely helps or saves people compared to other members of the crew. I don't think you're more worthy of respect because you frown a lot and try to act cool.
14 Shiroe - Log Horizon
15 Lelouch vi Britannia - Code Geass
Lelouch Lamperouge, whose real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is the title character and protagonist of the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
All hail lelouch.
He gave his life it to save the world, to create a new one where the opressed could live freely... and succeeded! The worst thing (and also the most admirable thing) is that he knew nobody would be aware of it, he would go down in history as a tyrant, when in reality they owe everything to him. - lilyflower
Watch the ending of Code Geass, then you'll understand why he is one of the best anime characters ever.
Even though he sacrificed himself, there is no reviving the dead, in which he caused so many people to die. - SelfDestruct
Who in the right mind would add a terrorist like him in the list? No wonder Charles zi Brittania, his own father, hated him! - SelfDestruct
16 Lenka Utsugi - God Eater
17 Naruto Uzumaki - Naruto

To be honest, it wasn't the characters that pissed me off about Gurren Lagann. - SelfDestruct
