Who is your favorite character and why?
This could be from Movies, TV Series, Book, whatever.
I can't think of an absolute top-favorite right now who isn't Judge Dredd but Judge Dredd is mostly awesome as a character because of the contrast in his personality to the world around him. There's also Rorscach and V, but I can't choose between the two and honestly, all the characters Alan Moore puts any work into are pretty fucking awesome.
I can outright tell you my favorite TF2 character, however. I mean, there's really no contest since he's by far more awesome than all of them. As badass and endearing as the Heavy and Pyro are, as classy and hilarious as the Spy is, as skilled and awesome as the Sniper is, as genius as the Medic is, and as... uhh... Scottish.... as the demoman is, you literally, (and figuratively) CANNOT argue with the reincarnation of George motherfucking Patton himself. It cannot be done. It's also fun to yell and rant in your best Soldier voice on roleplay maps.
The "Protagonist" from Eternal by Endmaster.
He's a character that feels insanely realistic and true to himself no matter which path you take. (So thanks for that End!)
Other than that, probably Ellie from "The Last of Us" who also seems really realistic. Between her being extremely sarcastic, hilarious, childish, she also represents the results of the atrocities from the apocalypse, such as her over-the-top cursing and attitude.
Heh. Joel is mine. :P
Probably...the Joker. Compared to Batman, the Joker doesn't mind killing a few top-class crime lords to make the city go wild, and yet he doesn't do enough to damage to entirely destroy the city, but instead makes everyone there stronger.
Shane from the Walking Dead (TV series, not comic) is one of my favorite characters of all time. I think he is one of the few characters on the show that I considered 'real' in reacting to the zombie apocalypse. A lot of people go off on him about doing Rick's wife, but he honestly thought Rick was dead and tried to get him out of the hospital. When he found out Rick was alive, It was just too late and he had already fallen for Lori hard. Lori didn't help by leading him on even after the fact. Shane knew what was necessary to survive the world they were living in. I believe Rick took a part of him after taking his life on that hill, and that made Rick a better person.
I f*cking hated Lori. Seriously, all she does is complain about CERRRRRRRL not being safe and she really just ruined the show. When Rick went all crazy because she died, I started to like the show less. I mean, come on, I would have been f*cking happy she was dead. Period.
I hate Carl too. Everyone goes on about how he's "going through teen problems", but the kid is f*cking 7. I can't stand him, and he wastes the entire show's time. Why couldn't Rick's son have been a nerd, the show would have been so much better with Carl being able to hack computers and shit instead of him being emo all the time. I can get that this isn't supposed to be "realistic", but Carl has no survival skills. He should have died in season one. At least the little kid from the first episode could hit zombies with shovels.
That would have made for a much better character.
P.S. Duane (The kid you said could hit zombies with a shovel) died because he thought he could kill his mom (Who was, of course, a zombie) but couldn't. Carl was kind of like that. Plus Carl killed Dale. I F*CKING LOVED DALE!
Nah, wasn't keen on Shane. You know who's really awesome? ... Darrel!
... Also Mishone. ^_^
Mike Shinoda. I do a very good Shinoda immitation IRL too.
Mike Shinoda's a fkin legend
.....not THAT much.....
Superman, it's the endless optimism and trust towards even complete strangers, I find it fascinating and inspiring. It reminds me of my father, who is, like Superman, too optimistic and trusting for his own good. If only more people were like that.
I now dislike your father. Meh, never could get into Superman. Byronic Heroes without the charisma, mustaches, and tuxedoes bore me, and they get worse when they're omnipotent anyway.
Spoken like someone who has no idea what he's talking about. The list of things that can hurt and/or kill Superman is far longer than just "kryptonite".
Even if that was true though, I don't think it would change my mind, although it would take the "too optimistic and trusting for his own good" out of the equation since such a case wouldn't exist if there wouldn't be any risk whatsoever, but anyone who knows anything about Superman will know at least a few occasions where his optimism and will to trust others is used against him, but he still doesn't abandon those morals because they are so much more important than most people think they are.
I preferred the original. You know...the one that wore boxers over long-johns. xD
I fail to see the similarities, except he called him omnipotent, which might be synonymous with the "no risks involved" part, but aside from that his point seemed to be that Superman wasn't James Bond/Tony Stark enough for him, not that his most important character traits are minimized by an untrue statement that his enemies lack the ability to pose as a threat to him.
Need I say more? Oh, wait, there is another.
Three shots of my favorite t.v. character. He is such an egomaniac. It's hilarious the situations he gets into.
Eh... I actually don't have a favorite character. I like a lot of heroes and villains and side characters all for different reasons.
I will say I'm fond of Sherlock Holmes, though.
Conan Doyle, BBC, Robert Downey Jr, or Elementary?
All four of them. :P Conan Doyle created a good character, imho. BBC's version is full of snarkiness that I find amusing and both leading actors did an excellent job. Robert Downey Jr's 'Holmes Vision' is freaking badass and he makes a very likeable Sherlock. (Jude Law was good at keeping pace with him.)
Elementary, while still a good show, is ... actually my least favorite interpretation out of all four because ... I dunno, something really missing from his performance and the energy in the show. The female Watson is a concept I'm willing to support, even if it is a little fan-fic-y, but even her performance feels ... off.
Augustus McCrae from Lonesome Dove, and Robert Duvall really brought him to life in the TV miniseries. I don't think there has ever been a close second.
I think you lost some froodiness when you switched from that teacup to manga filth.
How's your butt?
'Cos it sounds like it hurts something' awful...
You mean apostrophes?
You mu'er fuck'r.
u wot m8? I swer on me mum, ill bust ya gabber.
"It's a TRIPLE, BABY!"
"Smoke weed everydaaaay...."
"u w8 mate?"
"But mah hope will nevah diiiiiiiie!"
I was referencing this kind of video.
I think this is the equivelant of shocking you into that slience...
Like that time I called someone a "fucking fuck slut" in front of my grandmother.
My grandmother. I was on the phone to a friend of mine while I was at her house once. The friend and I were joking around, and it ended with me sarcastically calling her a "fucking fuck slut" and her calling me a "man-whore".
Anyway, she walked in as I said "fucking fuck slut"
She actually just laughed. My grandmother and I are pretty close.
Heh. HEH. HEHEHEH.
Is this AnimalLover_124 you refer to now?
With whom do you dwell, O Fox of CYS?
Ah. I see.
What haven't I seen? *shity eyes*
Pretty much all the characters in Firefly, especially Wash.
my fav character
no, you're not disappointed, you're rickrolled.
James T. Kirk of course.
Same as ecoLyte, the 'Eternal' from Endmaster's Eternal.
Also Kaladin from the Stormlight Archives.
I see you've made this thread, just as I predicted. Or, perhaps it would be more fitting to say:
Not necessarily my favorite character, but my favorite episode of Veronica Mars was the cross over episode where she met Buffy the Vampire Slayer and they ended up sleeping together.
Seemed sort of far fetched at first, but it turned out to be plot related (demons as usual) and it wasn't like they stayed lesbians, Buffy ended going back to Angel (or Spike can't remember that bit) and Veronica went back to that psycho dude.
Wait... They made a cross over of two really popular shows with female protagonists, just so they could have lesbian sex? ... I hate men. >.<
Me likes Patrick Star because he so stupid!
Oh that's a no brainer. Greatest and most beloved character of all time...
Prince Joffrey!!! ^_^
He's not that bad. Everyone kills Sean Bean at some point in their life. :P
To be honest I actually can tolerate Joffrey more than Sansa or boring ass Bran.
I don't really like Joffrey, but I can't really dislike him since he's supposed to be a complete bastard with no redeemable qualities so he fits the role very well.
Sansa's whining, crying and general inaction to improve her situation annoys me more. Though Sansa's been getting slightly better lately and I've been trying to see her as starting out as a stupid young girl that is becoming slightly more savvy about the real world. Still, it feels like with her she's waiting around for someone else to help her like a damsel in distress rather than doing anything.
Bran and his beast master routine is just dull stuff to me though. He could've died when Jamie pushed him out the window and I wouldn't have missed him. Hodor is more interesting than Bran. Lol.
"Mmm-hmm! This is a tasty burger!"
It appears I never shared my favorite character... Anyway, I'd probably go with Hannibal Lecter from Silence of The Lambs, Red Dragon, and Hannibal Rising. Because, c'mon, who doesn't like a brutal cannibal?
EDIT FROM A YEAR LATER: Han Solo. Hands down.
