The Top Ten
He is the best character
Best character ever and strongest
Oh, so someone thinks Kirito is the worst character in the history of anime? Dude, if you don't like him, don't complain about him here! Besides, I've seen worse in other anime series as well. Cough *Makoto* cough *Ito* cough. Finally, who doesn't love Kirito? Kirito is a good guy, just like Klein said. And Klein's right! Kirito may look overpowered, but don't forget it's not like he saved everyone. There were some people who he wasn't able to save, but he wasn't going to give up, because he will never give up for their sake. So Kirito haters, go to hell!
He isn't a good character, he's just good. He doesn't have any character to him - styLIShT
I understand he can be a Gary Stu, but he has flaws. He can be idiotic (biting his own sister's hand), arrogant, and very cocky. But he's kind, has a moral code, and selfless. - TheDarkOne_221bV 59 Comments
BEST GIRL - KeeboTheHUGEBoy
Best-written character in the show hands-down
Sinon is the best gun user!
I will be 100% honest right now. I actually didn't think highly of Sword Art Online during season one. Nothing amused me until SAO 2. Most of my interest in Sword Art went up an entire boost because of Sinon. She's SOOO SUPER PRETTY, and very headstrong. She tried facing her anxiety by playing GGO, and even when it didn't help, she kept going. To be honest, I think she's a better girl for Kirito than Asuna because
1. They have more stuff in common. 2. Asuna gets pretty weak around Kirito when Sinon is just helping out.
3. Sinon USB one of the most BEAUTIFUL characters in anime, in GGO or out. Much more characteristic than Asuna
She easily became my favorite charac... I still keep watching the show because of her. Waifu
Easily my favorite character. So much development yet people say she is bland and boring, I don't get it. She goes from hard core training let's beat SAO to understanding how to love the awful situation from Kirito. Also Kirito dies at least 3 times without her, the crazy guild member, when they fought the dungeon boss as just the 2 of them and the final boss. Without her I feel Kirito wouldn't have been able to finish the game from will power or his own strength.
She is so cute, and best
She is SO pretty and I love her attitude. She might seem mean the first time you see her in an episode, but in the other episodes she's really sweet and kind. (Did I mention she was REALLY pretty? )V 39 Comments
She is the best Sao person I know. She is the strongest of them all and she deserved a better life!
It's not true that she was weaker than Kirito. He was apparently fighting at his hardest in the middle of the battle, but lost anyway.
She took the Stu out of Kirito. He was a large Gary Stu, and I will admit that. She's awesome. As a person hoping to be an official author soon, I can tell you that making a good character is very difficult. But she was the perfect combination of all of the spices, a firework that died away at the end. It was the grand finale. She was just the embodiment of a good TEMPORARY character. If she had stayed it would have been a bit boring after a while.
But while she was there, the death still left me shocked. THAT'S a good character. Kirito's "death" left me bored and emotionless, and he sprung back up anyway. It's not that I HATE him, but he was just a bit of a bland Stu in my opinion.
Yuuki, though, was just a perfect combination in the recipe of a character. It was a beautiful part of it. She was important in the series' development.
She just...resonates with me... RIP
SHE IS AWESOMEV 25 Comments
He, alongside Agil, are the only characters in the entire show that behave like a human would. You know, instead of a Harem Girl #69 or Count Edgelord Deathdark. Using this setting, with Klein as the main character, and the absolute removal of Kirito, it could have been a significantly more interesting show.
His skill would bring him to the front line in SAO, yet he's not particularly brave, and so the grim nature of the game would have been far more relevant with his likely constant fear of death. It also wouldn't have been a terrible harem anime with him in charge, either.
He is one of these only characters with good development he goes from noon to pro but is not op like kirito he is a decant fighter he is part of their assault team and has good leadership skills as he runs a powerful guild and made those noobs into pros.
The best SAO waifu right here!
Klein is definitely the best character. Kirito is maddeningly and unrealistically OP, while Asuna is just a weak little girl designed to be the waifu of everyone. Klein actually develops into a good fighter and swordsman and actually cares for the people around him. If Klein was the main protagonist of SAO I would have liked the series a LOT more. - nk_the_epicV 23 Comments
Best supporting character. Incredible how she overcomes her feelings to be the support that inspires Kirito and gives him strength when in trouble.
I love her, one of the most interesting characters, I hate how all the interesting ones get the least screen time, Asuna has too much screen time..
I took pity on her. Never even thought of loving MY brother. I do love him as an elder brother, but NEVER, EVER romantically, really.
At least she's not as incestuous as Shiro from No Game No Life.V 9 Comments
He managed to help Kirito once (and you'll have to watch to see when it happens).
He is basically a trolls god in red armor that completely rekt Kirito. However kirito came back and killed him because video games are legit
Kayaba Akihiko is great. The power to kill someone's real self through a VRMMO was pretty sinister, but if it weren't for his work, then Kirito and Asuna wouldn't have fallen in love, VRMMOs wouldn't have made it big, and Yuuki wouldn't have spent the last few years of her illness in pain. Also, he basically lived on as an AI because he uploaded his own consciousness. That's pretty cool. - Prospekt
The man's a badass KAYABA AKIHIKO for the win!V 2 Comments
Sure, her "Mommy" gig can be a little annoying, but everything else about her is just beautiful. She is willing to do anything for Kirito and Asuna. Although she's just an AI character, she's the smartest and most helpful AI I've ever seen in a game. - Solacress
She's the only character than actually made me cry. He disappearance was easily the saddest part of the series. (still crying) - Solacress
Yui is so cute! When she disappeared I was so sad I started to cry just a bit though but still! And she made the series so better and she even saved Kirito and Asuna even though she would be deleted! Yui sacrificed her life, so I BETTER NOT SEE ANYMORE HATE ON YUI!
Okay, what's with the hate on Yui? She saved Kirito and Asuna one time even though she knew she would be deleted! What's to hate about that?V 22 Comments
He's just so funny and helps out kirito a lot
He helped out Kirito more than once
The only black character on the show. And who doesn't love Agil? Everyone loves Klein and Agil. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
The best developed and only sane characterV 5 Comments
If you ever are down and need someone to motivate you, or if you're daydreaming too much, Llisbeth is the perfect character for you. Most underrated in the series, also she's a no-nonsense character too. - notbirdlandstew
Lizbeth is such a great character who was not nearly used enough
Why is she so far down the list? She's amazing and sweet, and cute. Her persona is awesome and honestly deserves so much more and better then Kirito. The Asuna and Kirito couple can go to hell for all I care.
Well, at least she made the Dark Repulser sword for Kirito. If it wasn't for her, Kirito wouldn't have beaten The Gleam Eyes boss.V 16 Comments
Add kirito to the list as many tims as possible
I'm surprised there are no hate comments here, for some despicable people think she's annoying. I'm glad to see people giving her some love. - Solacress
I'm a Silica and Pina lover! I think she is the best. Me and Silica have a connection a bond! She is amazing at singing even better than me. Silica is THE strongest player. Anyone who does not love her is not living!
Even though I play a lot of fnaf silica is always better she reminds me of the human version of circus baby, she is the best and I hate it when people offend pina with the pina colada song SHOW PINA SOME LOVE
She is cute when she sings in sword art online the movieV 11 Comments
Why are Leafa and Suguha separate? Their the same person! - Coreylordo
I feel Leafa is kind of underrated. Although I think I can see why...
Why why she is so down I just love her so much I don't know why but I feel something Alec for her I don't know why but I love so much I can't even tell
Best girl deserves more love. So beautiful and a strong loyal sister.V 7 Comments
I reject your reality and substitute my own
He was a lot better than the original Kirito. He developed well, subtly but well. He was (somehow) relatable and hilarious, all tying into being a very satisfying character in general.
Significantly better than the main character from the original series. - MasonOcker
I haven't even seen the abridged but SAO is awful.V 19 Comments
Lizabeth is agood player she helped kirito make a damn weapon
The best bro ever
He's the cutest looking guy ever!
My dear husbando, he is so cute! The Weeb in me loves him for his character, he and Sinon are about the only two who have development; but the Furry side of me prefers his Howl at The Moon form from Memory Defrag, Edge and Okamimi crossed with Eugeo, I could not ask for anything better. Regardless he is by far the best character in SAO no matter what. I love him more than I could ever love another human being. - Rei_The_FurryWeeb
Literally the only reason why I'm watching this new season. He's awesome!V 11 Comments
I loved Sachi... I liked her personality, and her dead was so sad... R.I.P. Sachi❤
Sachi's death was, in my opinion, the saddest death in the series. Most of Kirito's development was because of Sachi and I was very sad to see her die. If Sachi stayed, we could have seen a weak, scared girl become a badass like Asuna.
She was very realistic and was a big part of Kirito's development. I personally favor her more than Asuna. - YanomiBaka
She was like Sword Art Online's very own dandere.V 3 Comments
Death by gun more like
Death gun sucks
"It's showtime! " lol best catchphrase in the series for sure. Oddly it's spoken in English, even in the Japanese dub of the anime. O_o - Prospekt
boom boomV 1 Comment
If she were not such a new character she'd be top 5 easily. Maybe only behind Kirito and Asuna. - notbirdlandstew
Alice is simply amazing if you ever read the LN. Is really strong, takes really good care of Kirito when he <spoiler>, and actually has her viewpoint unlike most other chars
I am trying to make Engel and Alice on top. If only Alice and Eugeo were in the Sword Art Online Episodes already...
Alice would be the third or fourth best character after Kirito and Asuna,her character development was impressive and she was a strong willed character.Let's admit it, someone who can pose a threat to Kirito x Asuna is not ordinary.V 2 Comments
The guy is a legend he never got the girl and had the most meaningless death in all of television
Sacrificed the most in the ALO arc, and still didn't get the girl.
She's just a minor character. Though she kind of cemented the relationship of Kirito and Asuna together. I liked episode 10.
No one even has a reason for Griselda to be in the top 15 so...
If anyone can tell me a reason for her to be above silica, than be my guest.
So uh she's a minor character in Lost Song, but she's considered... right? I personally like her. She's really cute in that Pooka avatar...
Best char ever
Is Sugou the worst anime character ever? NO! He is the WORST THING EVER! This filthy pervert deserves no fans at all! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Sorry AnimeAmerica, no one on this list wants to put an evil perverted scumbag like Sugou at number 1. If you want Sugou to be number 1 on a list, he's number 1 on Worst Sword Art Online characters. I hope I've made your day. LOL. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Wow, you put the worst character on the show on this list? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Sugou's in last place. Right where he deserves to be. - ModernSpongeBobSucksV 13 Comments
Was it really necessary to spoil it for people who haven't watched the Phantom Bullet arc yet?
Spoiler alert: sterben is death gun
He's not as bad as sugou witch made 50% of the sao haters hate sword art online - ikerevievs
He's an awful ugly character. He molested Sinon! Sick ugly pervert.
Correction. He ALMOST molested Sinon. Then she hit him with a radio.
THEN Kirito made a joke with her and she nearly hit HIM with a radio because after getting over the gun PTSD, now she had that lovely image.
