27 Master Roshi - Dragon Ball Master Roshi - Dragon Ball

He's a creepy old man! Perverted and lecherous!

28 Gokudo - Gokudo
29 Raditz - Dragon Ball Z Raditz - Dragon Ball Z

I love Raditz and he's my favorite character in DBZ and in all anime, but he would make a bad role model. He has little regard for family, he's quite arrogant, and he's very mean and sadistic. He's basically a heartless brute. But evil or not, I still love him. I just wish he wasn't one of the bad guys.

30 Shiranami - Naruto Shippuden

He killed his father for his own selfish ambitions.

31 Arlong - One Piece Arlong - One Piece Saw-Tooth Arlong is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew, the Arlong Pirates and a former member of the Sun Pirates. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other more.

He was Hody Jones's role model.

32 Ayato Kirishima - Tokyo Ghoul
33 Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto

He's very rude and temperamental. And he betrayed his own village. He even tried to destroy it.

34 Chi-Chi - Dragon Ball Chi-Chi - Dragon Ball
35 Uta - Tokyo Ghoul Uta - Tokyo Ghoul

I think he was a little misused. He seems like a good person at first, but is later revealed to be a member of the Clowns, thriving in chaos and destruction. That's very disappointing, but I still love him nonetheless. Why do the best characters always have to be the bad guy?

36 Lina Inverse - The Slayers Lina Inverse - The Slayers Lina Inverse is the main protagonist and the only character that appears in all incarnations of the comic fantasy themed light novel, manga and anime series Slayers, where she is a young yet very powerful sorceress travelling the world.

47 Togami Byakuya - Danganronpa
48 Shura Kirigakure - Blue Exorcist Shura Kirigakure - Blue Exorcist

I love Shura a lot, but her drinking habits and short clothing are some things kids shouldn't copy. Not to mention she gave herself to men back then, when she was younger. But I think older kids in their teens like me might be able to see her character In a better light (because I have. If you think about It, she Isn't that bad at all) - MLPFan

49 Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail Juvia Lockser is a Fairy Tail Mage . When Juvia was young she was abandoned by her parents because she was followed by the rain .
