Worst Protagonist Anime CharactersRoseRedFlower Ever liked an anime so much but there was just that one lead character you couldn't stand? Well, now you can give your honest opinion about it. Please remember these are Protagonists and not side characters. We're talking about characters who are the central part of the narrative. Examples: Misaki Ayuzawa, Lelouch, Kiba (Wolf's Ran) etc.
The Top Ten
Yikes, this guy. What could you expect from a character that was in an anime that was dubbed: One of The Worsts Animes of All Time? If only he didn't sleep around so much, maybe then he wouldn't be so unlikable. - RoseRedFlower
Hmm...what can I say about the boy who literally gets THE GIRL OF HIS DREAMS and then IMMEDIATELY proceeds to cheat on her with damn near EVERY OTHER GIRL he can find for NO REASON! Seriously, he deserved to be killed.
I'm glad Makoto and Pico are on top. I actually like Kirito and I don't really hate Ash Ketchum that much. But I respect your opinions on them if you don't like them. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
You're welcome. Even if I don't have the same opinions as others, it's better to respect them than to bash them. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This guy is a jerk. He keeps playing with the girls' feelings. I was really glad when he died. - Goku02V 1 Comment
Little boy that wants to have sex. Underage is the key word in all of this - RoseRedFlower
This boy is disgusting and disturbing. He'll haunt you for life! For the sake of your own mental well-being, don't watch this show! - Goku02
He is one of the reasons why I don't like Future Diary. At the start I got bored with this character. Then, I got so annoyed. What does Yuno even see in him. I was hoping he would get some good character development. But NOPE. I just hated him more. SPOILER ALERT! He in Yuno banged. They are 14 years old. MAJOR SPOILER ALERT! Yuno killed herself then Yuki won. He became a god. He didn't even do anything. He just cry's and relys on Yuno to save his ass or kill people for him.
Whiny, cry-baby, undependable and over all, very annoying. - RoseRedFlower
He always relies on Yuno. Never does anything on his own. - Goku02
Ash the eternal loser...
Still trying to become a Pokémon Master? It's been almost twenty years, maybe it's time to find another hobby. - RoseRedFlower
Yeah, he's pretty annoying. He's like that annoying neighbor kid who thinks he's the best but is just a loser. - RoseRedFlower
Should be way higher. At least both Shinji Ikari and Ash Ketchum have to cope with the consequences of their actions. Kirito is just a special little snowflake who has NO obstacles to overcome. He just wins with no explanation. Looking at his picture irritates the crap out of me. He looks like such a girl! Such OBVIOUS otaku wish fulfillment. I can't stand this character. Worst protagonist EVER.
Just very dull to me. Never really liked him and wasn't concerned with whether or not he would live. - RoseRedFlower
A overpowered broken character that doesn't deserve 10 minutes of screen time let alone 2 - PrinceOfFire
So overpowered more overpowered than Goku due to the fact the he has no obstacles to face and his actions has no consequence - PrinceOfFire
Whining complainer that I personally can't stand. Your daddy issues don't frighten me. - RoseRedFlower
Get in the damn robot
Hey, why is here here?
He is an excellent character!
If you want a terrible evangelion character, then take Asuka Langley, and not Shinji.
She just allows all the vampires to treat her like a walking soft drink and let's them verbally/physically abuse her. She basically has no personality or will of her own. No wonder the vamps think they own her and can do whatever they want. I think of her as more of a prop than a character. - NerdBunny
I hated Bella from Twilight. This is a Bella double with an annoying voice and no sense of capability. - RoseRedFlower
Painfully pathetic. - Tia-Harribel
Should be higher on list she is acts so clueless and fragile and she litterly let's the vampires harass her and she was givin a wepon to protect herself with but she did NOTHINGV 1 Comment
Should be number 1 I know all these people are terrible but she is a spoiled little rich girl she is more spoiled than milk itself when she first encounters Saito she immediately chains him, starves him, and beats him like there's no tomorrow and she gets what she wants at the end how can Saito love her ( Stockholm syndrome) and we're supposed to route for her what?
You just want to smack her in the face and say shut up. To quote Light Yagami: This is the first time in my life, that I've been provoked to hit a woman. - RoseRedFlower
No offense to Natsu's fan, but I just hate him! He's so annoying and boring. He never achieves his powers on his own, always relying on Power of Friendship, and is just terrible in every way. - Goku02
The definition of cliche - PrinceOfFire
Starting with the most disgustingly bigoted, spoilt, nasty brat of a character who repeatedly gets people killed through acting first entitled then self-destructively psychotic then turning her into a Mary Sue does not qualify as "character development".
The worst anime protagonist of 2016! In almost all action anime, the protagonist are capable of fighting with their amazing powers. Subaru on the other hand, literally is powerless! - SelfDestruct
Look I don't like RE:Zero but Subaru having no powers is the point to his character. - Rue
He's an idiot who cannot think rationally.
Bland as heck
It is not the fact that he did not choose the second girl. It is just that he is suuuper annoying. And stupid. He doesn't have a brain. He is like "OH! I'm in an unknown place. I don't now how I get here, neither how I will go home. It doesn't matter! I will follow a random chick I found pretty and I will die thousand times for her although I JUST MEET HER AND BARELY KNOW HER.
Talk about forced roman- ehem, "love" at first sight.
come on man, that is a obsession. Fcnk neet.
Screw this guy. His voice was so annoying, and he did next to nothing the entire show. I'm pretty sure Sonic and the others could've got back home without him
Is only there to make the two love interests enjoyable and not be her own character at all. - RoseRedFlower
Worst than Bella Swan.
Worst among the sailor scouts. When her friends were dying, the only thing on her mind was how warm Tuxedo Kamen's hands are. Whiny, dependable, and she would have died long ago without the other sailors. Jupiter is tough and strong, Venus is charismatic, Mars is kind with spiritual powers, Mercury is intelligent,... and what does Moon have? She is so undeserving of all her powers, she didn't do anything to achieve them. - Goku02
Very whiny at points. Just couldn't stand her, the other Sailor Scouts are better in my opinion. - RoseRedFlower
He's way too indecisive and annoying (in terms of both his personality and his voice). - drdevil
I thought Naruto was the protagonist?
Ryuko is actually a really good protagonist in my opinion. - HoneyClover
Just a boring, emo male shonen lead with tits
