The Top Ten
Read the manga and you will understand
I like how everyone changed opinion on him after...well, manga reader know what I'm talking about!
Eren is the most realistic. His reactions just show how much willpower he has and it makes the whole series better.
He is less stereotypical than others1 Comment
Best character of all time in my opinion, he is a smart shounen anime protagonist unlike most other shounen protagonist. What I like about him in both FMA series is how he would sacrifice everything just to getbhis brother's body back. In FMA03 one of the most emotional scene is when Ed sacrifice himself to get his brother back but in expense of him going to the other side of the gate, probably wouldn't meet his brother again. But, that scene is really heartbreaking because at the end we never see a happy ending with two brothers meeting each other again with their wish became granted.
Eren's trash compared to this guy! - TheDarkOne_221b
I'm assuming many people here hasn't seen FMA Brotherhood. To make things fair, neither have I. While Eren Jaeger and Rin Okumura make for good protagonists, I know for a fact that Edward Elric might not make for a protagonist with a character seen a lot in real life, but he is truly a special and noble one. Watch the series to see why. - listotaku17
He is the strongest anime protagonist that's not an automatic one shot(unless it's someone really weak)
He showed Vegeta and Frieza mercy! After all they did, all the people they killed, he gave them a second chance! Also, we watch him grow as a person, become a father, become a grandfather, and he saved the planet, what, more than 10 times? He even saved the entire GALAXY! Goku definitely would be at my number 1 favorite anime, no even character in anything.
Goku is the best
Inspiring, tough, creative, cheerful, happy, funny, kind, caring, pure-hearted, courageous, strong-willed, friendly, brave,… Simply epic. Goku is the best. He's number one! - Goku02
Ever since he was a child, he had a stubborn personality and people started calling him a 'demon'. He was frustrated about this because he didn't want to believe it. After a few years, he found out that he is indeed a half-demon, the son of Satan. After Satan killed his foster father, Shiro Fujimoto, the strongest Paladin (highest-ranked Exorcist) of all time be killed right infront of his eyes, he swears to kill Satan and gain revenge. A certain Mephisto invites him to True cross Academy where he will be getting lessons on how to be an Exorcist. His powers as the son of Satan is sealed in a certain "Kurikara" sword. Rin can be lazy and funny at times. Okay dude, ALL THE TIME. that's why I like him so much. Not bad for a demon. - AnotherOtakuGirl
Rin is the best. He gets hated, feared and has to go through a lot of pain and he is still standing throughout it!
The best oddball ever
She is really amazing. I love her way of hosting. She should be at least in top 5. I love her smile. She is so quite.
Mah boi Izuku needs some representation on this list. I’m biased because he reminds me of myself to a T but isn’t that the sign of your favorite protagonist? I don’t know. I just wanted to represent my favorite green headed boy.
He is amazing in all ways
Love this show I love the moments when he gets motion sickness
He is the funniest protagonist of all time!
Should be higher he is one of the best protagonist in all of anime
Joseph Joestar is an amazing character in Battle Tendency. Clumsy, but badass. Goofy, but hyper-intelligent. Comic, but sentimental (I cried at a certain part, and chances are you did too if your heart isn't made of stone). One of the most expressive characters you'll ever see, every moment he is on screen is endless entertainment.
Unlike most anime heroes, Joseph's fights are not won by brute strength. Instead, he takes down enemies massively stronger than him with ingenuity, mind games, and pure luck. The fact that his raw power is relatively modest (in terms of anime) also makes him a more relatable character, and you can almost put yourself in his shoes.
This guy pretty much single-handedly made Battle Tendency the best JJBA. Well, him and Speedwagon.
A lovable Chuunibyou character who literally crossed across time for the people he care, the lab members especially Kurisu and Mayuri.
Shinji, please get in the giant robot. - Vancedapurpleguy
Greatest Protagonist in the history of fiction - BigKailin
He’s the most realistic and relatable protagonist I’ve ever seen
