    This is not a your favorite MC or the best MC thread. I'm talking about Main characters that are different than those molds you see. For example, MCs like Naruto/Luffy are generic MCs with the usual personality traits, idiotic, heroic, never give up etc. Which is why I never like Main characters in the first place, they're always the same boring type of people.

    MCs like Light from Death Note are interesting to me, basically he is more of a villain protagonist than a hero, and is almost perfect to the people in universe. MCs like these are rare to see imo, or maybe I'm always looking at the wrong places.

    Reason I ask this is to know your opinions, and maybe recommend me a manga/anime with an interesting MC too if you like. :caticon

    Spoiler:

    Another reason is this is White wolf's event challenge and I'm just here creating threads :catstab

    Wei Wuxian (Mo Dao Zu Shi), he has a bit of a hero-anti-hero vibe throughout his growth, paired with a very strong sense of sacrifice that isn't paired with any kind of nakama power fuel bullshit.

    Ye Xiu (King's Avatar), unlike most Jap shounen chars there's no bullshit curve in power, or any nonsense. He's the strongest, most skilled, and hardest working from day 1 and it leads to a lot of amazing moments.

    Will think of some more, but good thread. :caticon

    Meliodas(7 Deadly Sins) was a nice change of pace as far as MC’s are concerned. He wasn’t loud, obnoxious, battle hungry, brain dead, a crybaby, or a glutton. Plus he didn’t necessarily go from a zero to a hero. He was already one of the strongest, he just had to regain his power.

    Gon Freecs, if only because most MCs don't flip out and threaten to murder a blind girl.

    Seconded. Yes This Is Kazuma is an unabashed sociopath. I knew he was going to be a fun MC when he made Aqua come with him out of spite.

    Kurosawa from Legend of a strongest man. ^ (use bro) is a 40 year old man who’s a failure in life but through courage and a desire of actually improving his life. Ends up becoming one of the most badass MCs that I’ve ever seen.

    Adult Eren is another good choice.

    He is an asshole. Never cares about this thing called honor in battle. He will use any dirty tactic he can think of to win.
    And hell he would run the hell away from battle if he thinks it is becoming too much for him.
    He still pretty likable and charismatic of course.

    Natsu Dragneel

    He is not just a character, he is a deconstruction of the human psyche that presents a person's inner strengths and weaknesses in several ways. He is highly complex to the extent that he is more of a seinen character than a shounen character. He is very unconventional in both his actions and motives and often finds himself in an area of grey morality. This alone distinguishes him from the usual garbage shounen anime use as characters. It is his unique personality that sets him apart, and makes him my favourite character. He is kind, caring and knows when he to fight his battles. He is shown to be very loyal to his guild and friends, which ties in to how he is a deconstruction of the human psyche. He is, effectively, a very likeable character since there is a little bit of Natsu in all of us
