He really likes hands
She's genki as hell and kind of dumb, but her simplistic good nature provides a vital backbone for the protagonist.
Inb4 the generic and shallow personality of most anime characters is revealed.
73% of anime have a character like that
He is a little bitch that won't get in the robot.
She's a terrible mother who likes experiments.
> most anime
As if it wasn't the case with most media.
A desperate girl. Everyone ridicules her and fails to realize how much the loss of status meant for her. Loss of popularity creates the worst demon, a bitter bitch who tries to become relevant no matter what.
A cynical bitch with intimacy issues who likes shooting people.
She likes money and fire.
And it's not pic related
Airheaded and a little lazy, though always manages to push herself whenever needed to get by. She's a friendly sort, cares a lot for her friends even though her ditziness makes her seem forgetful. Is pretty talented too whenever she puts her mind to it.
She likes to eat a lot and is willing to sacrifice herself for those she swore to protect
He were a good guy, reall good. Maybe even the best.
She's an enormous bitch
Jesus from Saint Young Men
Traumatized by her mother's suicide, this child prodigy is held back by her pride and short temper.
Surprised you got it wrong at it is REALLY easy.
Memory loss, fear of getting too close to people because of experiencing betrayal, likes to gamble, tends to focus on material objects.
Who is Kaede?
She loves weapons.
Like, goddamn. If there was a gun with a dick, she'd be all over that shit like pancakes in a lumberjack factory.
She doesn't hang out with people much, she tends to go out on her own and do stuff.
She's easily embarrassed.
Her mum's a huge cunt.
Koko is correct.
Most anime characters have a retarded tacked-on quirk that you can spout like a meme and people will recognize it. So It'll pass OP's test.
Also, here's the answer if it wasn't already incredibly obvious.
He's basically Batman
Who is my abusive stepdad
She's a quiet and listless but loves computers a lot. And bears. Also has two alternate personalities.
Oh hey, that was mine as well.
He's a loser who keeps fucking up until the very end. Also moé as fuck.
Is he Chinese.
he's just a short grumpy old man with a potty mouth.
He's a loser with an inferiority complex, a bastard you can't seem to hate, an ally of the weak. Unpredictable, a liar, a shameless pervert, an underdog, moe as fuck.
Oh her? She's a great friend, willing to chase you through town risking life and limb along the way just to make sure you're alright, or visiting you after a rough day just to remind you that you'll always be her friend no matter what. She's a real joker too, always fun to be around, but a lot of her jokes don't seem to land quite right. Oh, and she's really bad at jump rope.
She acts cold and aloof, but is genuinely interested in seeing new places and meeting new people. She just realises that most people are fucking jerks and sentimentality and compassion are most likely going to get her killed.
He's basically Bruce Wayne except with a giant robot instead of being Batman.
Everybody posts, nobody guesses.
Correct! Pretty obvious though.
He's so pathetic /a/, I wish to protect him ;_;
She's basically a mannequin, with the personality of a stack of wet newspapers.
hes a vamparic pedophile that molested his sisters and also got a hole punched through him once by a crazy bulldyke hopped up on demonswag
She's a shit.
You got it.
She is smart and love to abuse people with how smart she is. Also she is pathetic and hilarious.
And his girlfriend is dead escapist who is good at everything?
>implying she didn't dump him back in middle school
She's build like a stick
Her hair is a cow-lick
Fuelled solely by revenge. A master manipulator. Every single action he takes is movement towards his goal: ruining the lives of those that ruined his.
is it Yozora
That guy from MoMH?
He is really mad. It's like his rage is fueling him on his journey
That shit is easy
However did you guess?
Energetic and talented with a childish streak, and has the bad habit of turning regular conversation into a sex joke.
Self-claimed genius with horrible reputation and small chest.
He is a total weakling, which is suprising given he was surrounded by strong and influential people in the past. Despite that, he seems to be charismatic and cheated his way into a high-ranking position, gaining a large following in the process.
Shes tsundere and says urusai a whole lot. Very violent.
He really likes history and wanted to study it, so he enrolled in the army and got dragged into some heavy shit. He also likes tea with brandy. Pretty mellow fellow, he just wants to chill.
I know her. She is my waifu.
She's really kind. Like, incredibly kind. She can also wait for incredible amounts of time just to thank the person she owes her life to.
Pillar man in space or that dude from Kurozuka
A gigantic faggot.
He's gay and plays piano
"People die when they're killed"
didn't break any rules, did I?
No, because shirou does not die if he is killed.
You are talking about Nagisa, from Clannad.
I'm pretty sure he's autistic. Weirdo's always shouting and he'll only drink a certain brand of soda.
beats people up with a ghost for trivial shit like hair
He is sleeping in his car and does weird things
Moralfag white knight who preaches his ideals at every corner
What a shit OP image and a shit thread in general.
By punching with his right fist?
Jump rope gave it away huh?
Peppy and cheerful without being overly ditsy and sheltered like her clone from another universe. Has a deep fondness for music, and wants to help on the farm back home.
She values friendship over fighting, and wants to talk to her enemies and reach some kind of conclusion without fighting.
He's everything /v/ wishes they were.
Well that's not how you would describe him to a friend who has never seen him before.
So he is good at video games?
No, he enjoys them.
Kirito? Eren Jaeger?
He's perfect,flawless,good at everything and everyone loves him. Even people that were jealous of him will later love him.
And despite being a mary sue ,even the reader loves him.
Touma? I'm actually pretty curious.
Comes off as shallow and manipulative. Has deep-seated trust and commitment issues brought on by a lack of identity as well as being taken advantage of on multiple occasions.
Try for a harder one.
Is this your card?
He is a fucking casual, galge games, really? Delimiting yourself to a single genre that even a kid could finish eventually. No time contraints, no threats a whole lot of nothing, Visual Novels are nice but they are nothing more than this.
A hick who grew up with his sister wanders around murdering random people because his boss tells him too, learning lessons, finding who he really is and making peace with it along the way. Also, he ends up with Best Girl.
Kousaka or whatever his name is from genshiken.
>ends up with the Best Girl
More powers than Martian Manhunter.
Dropped the ice cream cone
I was grasping pretty hard.
VNs aren't the only form of galge, you know. You see him play quite a few other types of games. There's even a chapter where he devotes himself to beating a batting cage game that has a cute girl mascot.
I might not have given enough info, my bad.
>He killed his own father, his mother died when he was young
>Best Girl is not Main Girl
You COULD be right or you could be way off, that's too vague, drop a name
I'm right, alright?
She's just a normal middle school student who bad shit has happened too. She's kind of tomboyish I guess and Is really into martial arts and wrestling, but she'll do cute shit when she thinks nobody's watching
If it was this guy, you were.
She's just someone whos easily distracted and blames the guy next to her for her lack of success in what she does
Shes mostly a sweet girl though, loves cute things, crocheting and etc
He is sword.
she is mind blowing autistic, teenager from britbongistan
Tough, gifted, utterly determined, and always gets back up no matter how many times he's punched to the ground. Even though he's the MC, most of the other main characters are more interesting in their styles compared to his.
Also a very kind guy, which is kind of odd considering what he does for a living.
He's acts like the biggest asshole on the planet so he can achieve world peace.
We already did that. >>100301653
No, the other guy who is sword.
Is he shota?
Tales of Destiny manga.
Not even close.
Hint: It's based in reality.
does he like to roll?
They love to eat sweets every day in their club room. They love each other cry when their days eating sweets together in the club room must come to an end.
Manly guy who's capable of pulling out intense physical feats and succeeding in everything against all odds.
Despite that he's a complete virgin.
When he brought it up, all I could think was "This is literally the dumbest test of all time for a character because it forces people to describe them as a series of tropes or cliches instead of their intended personality, which is defined by their role in the story".
In his video, it reduced rather bland characters down to cliches. You could ruin any character by doing this. You're asking to describe a character without describing what defines a character.
And I am so sick of seeing people use this as a criticism without understand how shitty it is.
I dont remember that alas and as lately he seems to only play VNs.
that is way too generic, are you kidding?
In a sense, yes. I have a feeling you know who it is.
uhhh. She is a school idol.
She's a huge ungratefull cunt towards everybody and never learns to change her attidute.
He dat boy that play football for montreal?
Dude's also really dumb on the outside and gives off the impression that he's a thug.
Holy fuck there's only so many characters fitting this, it's not too generic.
No, but you're in the same genre, so pretty close.
>And I am so sick of seeing people use this as a criticism without understand how shitty it is.
No, literally the dumbest test of all time is the bechdel test.
I'm glad someone else thinks this test is dumb as fuck besides me.
The role a character provides in a story is vital to that character's development.
It was a joke, He's a boxer
Girl with divorced parents, the cause of which is so traumatic to her that she puts on a snide and somewhat domineering personality to avoid emotional intimacy with others which she slowly drops over the course of the series.
I could give you the profession but that's against the rules and it would make it obvious.
She ehm. acte nice but sometimes acts like a bitch, cooking mama and loves her boyfriend, fights sometimes but that doesn't seem to be very important...
Fuck this is hard!
She has as much personality as a dakimakura!
Unemployed, unfit for society, likes playing pachinko, beating up monsters and lecturing them
It's not that bad.
You can describe someone by their achievements without going into what their profession or what they look like quite easily.
This character is known for being a horribly powerful warrior with a giant weapon. At one point, he killed 100 dudes for going after him and his waifu. Later on, his waifu was kidnapped and then lost her memory. Oh, he lost a hand, too.
Perfectly within the rules, and it's pretty damn easy to guess the character.
Oh, very little cliche and tropes there, too, outside of the "powerful warrior" part.
What if there is no character development? Not everything has to revolve around some kind of progress, quest or morale.
The point of the exercise, in context, was to contrast the actual personalities and characterization of the characters from the original Star Wars trilogy to those of the prequels, which were quite obviously cardboard and unmemorable in comparison to those of the original saga. You're missing the point entirely.
Well, I didn't make it up.
> as lately he seems to only play VNs
What do you mean? You only get the occasional glimpse of the games he plays throughout the series. There's no way you could tell.
These two are like the most homosexual motherfucking creatures in all of fiction.
I mean fuck, Boku no Pico is pretty fucking gay, Kuso Miso is pretty fucking gay, fuck, these two trump over the purity that is yuri in terms of homosexuality. They are that much more homosexual than any blatantly homosexual work of fiction in existence.
Fuck, they even have a daughter that's a fucking lesbian.
And they haven't even kissed on screen yet.
from the get go he is described as someone who plays solely those kind of games the ones he bought were purely those he even get into those for females when he switches gender.
Kaiser and Kircheis.
Fuck your daughter.
what the fuck? manly is always going to make me think of kenji-kun
does he like whiskey?
Not particularly, never really mentioned.
that delinquent from higschool rumble?
She's really energic, obsessed by the unknown and new experiences. She's bossy and acted multiple times like a bitch because she didn't even consider other people's feelings, but as the time passed, she inserted into society and became a caring and lovely friend.
He is a delinquent, in higschool, but there's no fucking rumble.
Come on dude, it's fucking obvious. Stop trolling.
Come on guys, this one isn't that hard.
From the get go he is described as someone who solely plays galge. Not as someone who only plays VNs. As I said, there's a difference.
that joker from daily lives of higschool boys?
by his logic Mass Effect and Dragon Age are Galge games.
Not the other guy, but it's obviously Freddy.
And yet it's spot on, so I'm correct.
Well, they are.
If you can't get characterization out of what they did in the story, it's a bad character.
It's too easy to identify a character by describing what they do. You want people to recognize and agree on a personality based on what they do.
You don't want people to describe what defines the character, you want people to describe the character. It's not about tropes or cliches, it's "can you get a sense of the personality of this character?"
I think you're missing the point entirely.
She is searching for someone she can look down upon, because only then she feels in control, and she's a perfect hypocrit about it.
She creates a web of lies. Supposedly helping that someone, she actually tries to drag them both down. Or maybe she wants herself to be defeated, so she can start anew.
It's dumb to say it's a general test, and even on that merit those characters were taken apart much better in analysis than they were with a catch-all test that doesn't work most of the time.
He's the broest of bros and gladly does battle against the enemies of his friends to protect them. He always protects his best buddy even though he's must bigger, stronger, and more capable than his shy friend, and eventually succeeds in bringing him out of his shell, though it costs him his life.
I never did say it was a general test. Idk if anyone else did either. Of course there's more that plays into a character than simply their personality. The point of it is simply to draw a contrast between characters that have actual personality, emotional appeal, etc. (whether they're cliched or not isn't the point) versus those that are essentially cardboard cutouts or robots that exist solely to spout exposition.
I haven't even read the thread. I'm guessing the vast majority of it is going to be idiots with no reading comprehension listing nothing but physical traits or things that they've done or things that have happened to them, rather than character traits.
People other than myself will have called these idiots out already, and at least one of these idiots will get butthurt and start arguing either that what they said was within the parameters listed by the image, even though it clearly isn't, or against the premise of the image itself.
Every day is repost day.
Lukewarm chinese faggot with limited life goals. Autistic Nazi guy that wants to fuck his sister.
He's autistic but manly
Did something happen to you today anon? Wanna talk about it?
She's cynical, embittered, and sarcastic, but disguises it with a kind veneer. Deep down, she's far more optimistic and hopeful, but her pensive and analytical attitude obscure it somewhat. Intelligent, a bit selfish, and quite lazy, she comes off as somewhat aloof, but she has her moments of compassion and her outbursts of emotion. She tries to be calculating and manipulative, but is thwarted by her own earnestness. She's someone trying to be precocious, but she's not always successful.
Wow, way to shoot down our fun, Anon.
>This is literally the dumbest test of all time for a character because it forces people to describe them as a series of tropes or cliches instead of their intended personality, which is defined by their role in the story".
How? Why can't you describe the result?
Obviously a character is characterized through events in the story, but you shouldn't need to use those events to describe the character.
This either a case of you lacking the eloquence to analyze those actions and then describe what those actions portray about the character, or you being butthurt that a character you like doesn't have a lot to be said about him/her.
No, they're Kusoge
Even with her family's wealth and influence she remains independant and at times rebellious,and despite her cold nature,her bravado and charisma would have her subordinates give their lives for her cause.
You cheeky shit.
He's a smart, powerful fool with mommy issues who's had so much plastic surgery he loses his sense of self. Despite shacking up with two girls, he lacks an emotional connection with either of them. He really boils down to just being one lonely motherfucker.
He is a real womanizer, likes to cook, and has a deep connection to the earth.
He is kind and a good friend, but he doesn't hold back in a battle against his companions.
yep,although i thought it was pretty easy to guess myself
This person has been slightly emotionally blunted by past traumatic events, but has resolved to move past these traumas in order to support loved ones who probably need it more.
Behind the sometimes cold attitude displayed, this character betrays both a sense of humor and wit as well as a strong moral principle at times.
>ITT Half the people fail the test by describing the character's role in the plot
And yet they contribute more than you do.
This guy is a sadist that likes to torture his only underling. He is very egoistical, he lives for fulfilling his desires, and does give a fuck about anything else.
He always manages to find a way to fuck with everyone. And he is the most popular character of his series.
She has an imaginary friend and is possibly gay for the blond loli living with her.
The man who likes breasts the most in the whole world. Filled with youthful energy and ambition, fully enjoying his newfound power.
Ha ha, no.
He has a catchphrase.
And Kotomine is nowhere near sadistic
She does good in school and learns things fast but never shows up for class. Also, she is not a morning person.
A simple guy who doesn't care for worldly things like fame, money or power, but it's not so much that he's risen above them and more like he's never considered them.
He doesn't understand other people, or things like dedication or social convention, but can be compelled to loyalty by being awed with admiration, respect or love.
>enjoys the suffering of others
How do you know I'm not one of the people who posted previously
He made orphan batteries for no reason and had a crazy man kill the woman he loved.
Too vague, but it might be Nagi from Hayate
At first he really hates his life and family values, but over time he warms up to those ideas and genuinely loves his family
Kotomine is very sadistic, but this guy is even more sadistic. He is even creepy.
Probably the most fucked up character in the whole series.
God how has no one got this already; it's the Negotiator
I wish I could answer moe but I ain't seen as much anime as half you other weirdos
Well that doesn't narrow it down at fucking all since every single show has a character that is the most fucked up out of all of them
He's an honorable yet misguided man who will go to extremes to uphold the law set down by his superior, yet he can be helpful and even friendly under the right circumstances.
Also, mommy issues.
A girl who is very good-natured, pure-hearted and friendly but is constantly seeking validation, feeling that she doesn't have a proper role in the world.
She is distressed over her own lack of ability and is enamoured with the thought of being a heroic figure that could be of aid to others.
This character is a bit nuts as the (supposed) guiding principle behind his actions becomes lost and muddled. He's good at chess and is shown to be a tactical thinker (if not genius) although most of his achievements also depend on his (fairly liberal) use of a supernatural power.
It was hard phrasing it in a way that doesn't imply any plot events
OHO, was it really that hard?
You're missing the point.
He's fairly apathetic to start, and buried in misanthropy. He's held down by his past and his hate, but he meets a girl who promises him the world and a man who gives up everything. Through them and others, he breaks the chains holding him and reaches higher than even his Master.
Can you guess who?
Come on guys, this shouldn't be too hard.
That's the callenge here.
>the Danger Zone Ride into the Danger Zone
... but he's a guy
No, but that's actually a fair comparison.
Simon was never as hateful or apathetic as the character in my post.
Yeah I realized that after I posted.
It's not his fault
their names can pass as female names
but they are guys
Ouran Host Club?
He didn't die
He's only has sex with women that remind him of his mother.
Which is to say dominatrix bombshells that want to kill him.
He doesn't understand things and wishes them to be explained further.
That dude from Blade of the Immortal.
Well you described a meme not the character, but Shirou.
She is at first very curious and rebellious, before later conforming to the rules set by her society. Even though she is strong, she never looks down on those weaker than her. She is able to get back up no matter what her psyche has to face, and manages to keep her head cool even when the world seems to come to an end around her. She is probably bisexual.
Absolute adrenaline junkie. You'd think he has a death wish, but that's not accurate. It is more that he wants to live on the edge and push his limits, and as long as he gets do that, he does not care if it kills him. He will lie, bluff and cheat without hesitation but has integrity beyond measure; there is nothing he despises (or perhaps, pities) more than phonies.
Oskar von Reuenthal
Indecisive cunt that doesn't recognize her best friend.
He is the most dangerous assassin and his penis is amazing
I want to say Akagi Shigeru because of the first line, but the last part of the second line doesn't fit.
I applaud you
Just a question, which things don't apply? Can you list what they like, things they'd be willing to do, and so on, or just purely adjectives?
Seemingly a cold bitch, but actually a caring person with a strong moral code.
Innerly torn and in constant self doubt with a tendency to beat herself up over philsophical questions.
That guy from homunculus.
These two are from the same show.
He is bitter and cynical, motivated by money and money only, and has no qualms about that. He doesn't mind lying and deceiving others, and looks down on most, considering them stupid and motivated by meaningless things. He is confident in himself and his ability to read people, but maybe his cynical worldview has led him to become mistaken about himself.
She goes out of her way to appear powerful and confident, but she is actually vulnerable and fragile. In other aspects, too, it is often difficult to tell what is an act and what is not. Initially she has trust issues, but she overcomes them and becomes very loyal, even possessive. The former is genuine but the full extent of the latter is hard to judge.
Kaiki and Gahara
I'm thinking Onizuka but
>succeeding in everything
He's really hot-headed, always starting fights with his friends, especially his best friend, who's a real cool guy.
>Shonen MC X
No, but you're getting warmer
She's a dominatrix. She's a bitch too but in a good and admirable way as well. She's perfect.
>focusing on Naruto
Now you're getting colder. Cold as ice.
Oh, and she's evil too. Sexually evil.
>describe it to your friends
Alright there's this dude and he's a bitch. And I mean a big big too. Anyway, one day dude decide to go to the bathroom. That's when this thug comes in the bathroom at starts messing with em. Tellin' him to give him his money and all that. Then the dude just steal off this the thug. I mean dude hands are about the size of bricks and his arms are as long as branches so that had to hurt. But the shit that made the whole scenario so funny was that when he hit the dude, he started cryin' and then he just walked out.
Im so bad with shonen..
You've probably never seen the series if you're not getting it.
OH OH, I got it
cold as ice and shit, you were giving me hints ?
Now you're on fire, anon! That's the one!
Even at a young age, she wants to conquer the world, and has what appears to be a cake-loving Soviet general as her loyal follower.
Posts like this fail, right? He's just describing what has happened to him rather than who he is. His development is mentioned, but he doesn't really explain who he was or what he became.
why do I feel so much triumph over this, the human mind really is a strange thing
also fuck these new captchas
He uses the Jericho 941
fucking half of people who get "cursed" with immortality, hell, how many people have reacted to getting cursed with immortality with "Aw hell yes"
She's not moe
He did play that one buggy piece of shit just to get to the ending. I'm sure he'd play those two as well. I don't think he'd enjoy it, but he'd certainly play it.
She's stubborn about her goals and will bicker about them often. She's easily flustered, more so when embarrassing topics are brought up. She's always willing to use her knowledge to help those close to her in times of need. She likes to joke around sometimes but is also willing to be serious when the need arises. She may be cold to some at first and tends to distance herself, but will do anything for those close to her and is willing to make self sacrifices to help those around her.
You've got this guy who likes sailor uniforms and ponytails because of his ex-girlfriend who spends his time fixing other people's problems, mostly dealing with rivalries and romances.
He's got a really scary face and everyone misunderstands him. That's 90% of the manga.
Every shonen ever, no matter the gender of the MC.
Angel heart's MC.
This bitch can vibrate her arm and cause her weapon to vibrate , creating the illusion of a snake slithering through the grass.
she is level-headed and practical. she has a more masculine personality, in a sense that she doesn't bother with the gimmicks of being girly. she is exceptionally smart, and kind to nearly everyone she meets.
She is a lonely woman who worries a lot about her age and her status as single but does her best to improve the future and lives of those younger than her despite the fact that they will probably end up being much happier than she is as a result. She's got a bad smoking habit and is attracted to troubled young men. Her insecurities lead her to try to one-up girls half her age and she has a fixation on ramen.
She's a goofy looking bitch
she is less girly than hanekawa.
He has a wooden sword and shaggy hair.
If you can't guess this, you need to fuck off out of /a/.
Perfect Kuudere female antagonist #2
Hint #1: She carries around a huge ass sword, and wears armor.
>If you can't guess this, you need to fuck off out of /a/.
You should leave first for completely disregarding the OP
>matches 20 or so characters just off the top of my head
>"if you can't guess this, you need to fuck off out of /a/!!!!!"
No, YOU need to fuck off out of /a/ since you think this description is unique.
>WITHOUT describing what they look like
>not describing outfit, facial features or identifiable qualities
He's just that famous. A lot of characters have shaggy hair.
Proud, cheeky and playful; a little wolf inside a girl.
She's kind of a tomboy, just a bit hot-blooded and doesn't take shit from people. Likes to stand up to authority. She's not embarrassed about wearing a skimpy outfit.
She has an inferiority complex, a superiority complex, doesn't give a shit about hurting people or destroying their property, and regularly sacrifices herself for the good of others.
Is really cool.
