    What type of protagonist do you guys hate?

    I don't like those pro's that get help from other people till like the last chapter, makes it really annoying.

    I don't like those protagonist who

    >Have a fear some aura
    >Don't be like Tsuna from Hitman reborn(He makes himself pathetic as fuck, and HE IS A MAFIA BOSS WTF)
    >Hate it when they are really clumsy (Luffy,Natsu)
    >Hate it when they are dumb as fuck (Natsu,Luffy)
    >Hate it when they want to protect every mother fucking person (Ichigo)


    I like a pro who is
    >Semi Intelligent
    >Not weak as fuck till end
    >Don't make a fool of himself evertime he does something
    >CAN tell the bitch he likes that he likes her (Seriously every mange has this shitty thing that pro cannot confess)
    >He knows when to think logical and not from him fucking heart.
    >He is a badass from start and still becomes a more bad ass (Demon Eyed Kyo)

    I think everybody hates archetypal shounen characters.

    Ha, never thought I'd see the day that SDK was referenced.
    -------

    Uh lets see...

    DISLIKE:
    - the wimpy kid.
    Explanation: I like an underdog as much as the next guy, but cmon Japan. It just gets so repetitive to see some runt do the same shit over and over. These characters always go 1 or 2 ways.
    1. "Oh no, i'm so wimpy, run and run and then finally face my fear, then flash back to this every time I face a challenge"
    2. or "I've been put down all my life, it's time to be a man!"

    Again, I don't mind the underdog(Gurren Lagaan is a great show for example), but when your main protagonist is so shallow that his entire character is "wimp who is no longer a wimp" then you might want to make a better character.

    -the "look at me, i'm so badass".
    Explanation: I think Noblesse is the best example of this. When you have one character who is so ridiculously overpowered that he doesn't actually do anything but activate some ludicrous skill, then yeah you have a problem. I understand your Alucard's or Vash, but those motherfuckers who just come in out of nowhere, win the fight and then proceed to do nothing, yeah, fuck you.(For a good parody of this, check out Onepunchman).

    -the "Angstifier."
    Explanation: You ever have a character where something happens and they just immediately go into angst mode? Like no actual provocation or tragedy happened, but they just go into despair? The best example I think I can give is SAO's first episode.(you know what I'm talking about). The worse part is that these characters always get a storyline filled with 1-2 tragedies they keep flashing back to, just to get the extra angst in.
    (For a good parody of this, see Sayona Zetsoubo Sensei).

    -the "philosopher"
    Explanation: The character who states very stupid things, but is actually serious and trying to be deep. Example(again) SAO-Kirito.

    ----------------------

    I like:

    Silent protagonist.(Ayanami Rei)

    Complex protagonist.(Motoko Kusanagi / BA: Alita)

    Complete badasses who own it(Alucard / Akumetsu / Saitama/ SDK).

    Struggling/working hard (Vagabond / Shamo / Feng Shen Ji)

    Realistic(Eden's : Elliah)


    The tsundere done right: Asuka or Senjouhara

    The idiot: Luffy, Okabe Rintaro, Gintama Cast.

    and the good natured pervert: Araragi.


    I'll think of more later.

    My favorite protagonists are the ones that play dumb but are cunning and smarter than they let on. Like most people, the one part of many protagonists I do not like is the incredibly dense to romance/inept at reading people part.

    One who is either insanely overpowered or just doesn't give a shit about anything.
    The latter can be done correctly but usually isn't so it just pisses me off.

    The problem with the "smart" protagonist is that there is two kinds of smart.

    There is your "genius" smart.

    Then there is your "plot demands it" smart, like the new show "Sherlock". Where they will write the story to bend over backwards to make w/e the protagonist just said viable.
    Example: I just noticed that you have a chair. That chair was made in X century and is famous around the nobles. Because of this you are obviously a british secret agent and working on an undercover op in order to assassinate the prime minister.
    ----------

    But usually manga/anime do smart characters better than tv.

    Badass there is too many to count.(usually every action series has at least one or two). Silentwise it's generally heavily based on preference. I like Eden's Kenji or Vagabond's Sasaki Kojirou. Though many people like Rei.

    Your too harsh, don't let reality hit @Color in the face. He is going to be heart broken.
    Also I mean a main protagonist with the quality meet, not a secondary character.

    I like:

    Complex protagonist.(Motoko Kusanagi / BA: Alita)

    Complete badasses who own it(Alucard / Akumetsu / Saitama/ SDK).

    Struggling/working hard (Vagabond / Shamo / Feng Shen Ji)

    Realistic(Eden's : Elliah)


    The tsundere done right: Asuka or Senjouhara

    The idiot: Luffy, Okabe Rintaro, Gintama Cast.

    and the good natured pervert: Araragi.


    I'll think of more later.
    I Found my list already written =.
