Provide an example of a "Chaotic Neutral" anime character.
I'm having trouble understanding the difference between the various D&D alignments. So really, post any alignment character you want. Just specify which they are.
He clearly was evil.
He clearly was good
D&D alignments are shit and shouldn't be used outside of the game.
He only cared about his own intentions, while following a group of evil people.
Have you ever watched Evangelion ?
I don't think so.
Mugen is chaotic neutral, leaning toward chaotic good by the end of the series.
Does whatever he wants without regard for laws or bargains, purely self-motivated.
There's a tendency to associate chaotic types with impulsive behavior or whimsy, but that's not the case. It means they are not bound by rules or patterns of behavior. This means they disregard laws, oaths, agreements, contracts, etc. They frequently lie and double cross others.
This doesn't mean they never keep their word, only that they are highly unlikely to keep their word just because it's their word, they'll only stay loyal if they have a very good, immediate reason to stay loyal.
She'd count as chaotic neutral right?
Gendo's entire idea was to use instrumentality to revive his dead wife.
How is wishing to turn the whole world into a mass of tang good?
She tries to swindle Yasuna out of her money more than a couple of times.
>Gendo wasn't only pretended to coop with seele trying to end sadness and suffering that come with humanity and life we know.
Would Kaiki count as chaotic neutral? Or is he more of a chaotic good? Hard to say.
I wish Overheaven was translated already. I want to read on what he thinks of Jotaro.
SEELE and Gendo both wanted to FORCE it onto the people, that's not really good.
Nigga no one asked him to do this shit.
I think it was in SnK that Armin was saying about "There is no Good and Evil, only Evil to you/Good to others & Good to you/Evil to others"
For instance if I was the leader of group A and we were starving and I lead group A to slaughter wealthy group B so we could have their resources I would be a hero and great leader for group A but I would be a villain to group B.
That's why he's chaotic neutral.
>Implying you know what you want
Plan of seele don't include shinji, gendo use him because he know his pain and he know that shinji gonna make a good choice no matter what choice this is.
But forcing those things onto people is evil.
A character can't be considered neutral, just because weight his good deeds to his bad deeds, that's not how alignments work.
Law implies honor, trustworthiness, obedience to authority, and reliability. On the downside, lawfulness can include closed-mindedness, reactionary adherence to tradition, judgmentalness, and a lack of adaptability. Those who consciously promote lawfulness say that only lawful behavior creates a society in which people can depend on each other and make the right decisions in full confidence that others will act as they should.
Chaos implies freedom, adaptability, and flexibility. On the downside, chaos can include recklessness, resentment toward legitimate authority, arbitrary actions, and irresponsibility. Those who promote chaotic behavior say that only unfettered personal freedom allows people to express themselves fully and lets society benefit from the potential that its individuals have within them.
Someone who is neutral with respect to law and chaos has a normal respect for authority and feels neither a compulsion to follow rules nor a compulsion to rebel. They are honest but can be tempted into lying or deceiving others if it suits him/her.
Good implies altruism, respect for life, and a concern for the dignity of sentient beings. Good characters make personal sacrifices to help others.
Evil implies harming, oppressing, and killing others. Some evil creatures simply have no compassion for others and kill without qualms if doing so is convenient or if it can be set up. Others actively pursue evil, killing for sport or out of duty to some malevolent deity or master.
People who are neutral with respect to good and evil have compunctions against killing the innocent but lack the commitment to make sacrifices to protect or help others. Neutral people are committed to others by personal relationships.
>But forcing those things onto people is evil.
He didn't force anything. He just went ahead and spare humanity, whether they were good or bad.
A Chaotic Neutral character is an individualist who follows his or her own heart, and generally shirks rules and traditions. Although they promote the ideals of freedom, it is their own freedom that comes first. Good and Evil come second to their need to be free, and the only reliable thing about them is how totally unreliable they are. Chaotic Neutral characters are free-spirited and do not enjoy the unnecessary suffering of others, but if they join a team, it is because that team's goals happen to coincide with their own at the moment. They invariably resent taking orders and can be very selfish in their pursuit of personal goals. A Chaotic Neutral character does not have to be an aimless wanderer; they may have a specific goal in mind, but their methods of achieving that goal are often disorganized, unorthodox, or entirely unpredictable.
Here's a chaotic neutral character for you.
He's borderline chaotic evil.
the d&d alignment system is garbage and basically just the result of the system's autistic obsession with grids. the same kind of retarded shit that gets you an elemental plane of mud.
Gamagoori would be Lawful Neutral
A Lawful Neutral character typically believes strongly in Lawful concepts such as honor, order, rules and tradition, and often follows a personal code. A Lawful Neutral society would typically enforce strict laws to maintain social order, and place a high value on traditions and historical precedent. Examples of Lawful Neutral characters might include a soldier who always follows orders, a judge or enforcer that adheres mercilessly to the word of the law, and a disciplined monk.
Characters of this alignment are neutral with regard to good and evil. This does not mean that Lawful Neutral characters are amoral or immoral, or do not have a moral compass, but simply that their moral considerations come a distant second to what their code, tradition, or law dictates. They typically have a strong ethical code, but it is primarily guided by their system of belief, not by a commitment to good or evil.
Is fleet admiral sakazuki lawful evil?
No Ryuuko would be Chaotic Neutral
Nui would be Chaotic Evil
except he follows satsuki's rules because he believes in her justice. stop trying to force this crap. it's making everyone dumber.
her justice is strict laws and rules.
Not being a good person.
Chaotic neutral are generally madmen, find a crazy guy that isn't evil and there you go.
D&D alignment system is shit, that's why you can't understand the differences.
How about Revy from Black Lagoon?
Xellos, though it probably depends on which season of Slayers.
Chaotic neutral characters believe that there is no order to anything, including their own actions. With this as a guiding principle, they tend to follow whatever whim strikes them at the moment. Good and evil are irrelevant when making a decision. Chaotic neutral characters are extremely difficult to deal with. Such characters have been known to cheerfully and for no apparent purpose gamble away everything they have on the roll of a single die. They are almost totally unreliable. In fact, the only reliable thing about them is that they cannot be relied upon!
Except he clearly isn't. The filler episodes made him too adorable that people don't even consider anymore that he actually has 0 feelings and only thinks about his and his race's ass.
Lina's closer to CN
This alignment system is stupid. Law is good and chaos is evil, this is unquestionable.
Read this http://www.easydamus.com/alignment.html Do the alignment test if you get bored.
>I'm having trouble understanding the difference between the various D&D alignments
Good is the willingness to actively put others before yourself.
Evil is causing undue pain and suffering to others.
It's important to note that simply being extremely selfish does not make one evil.
Law is following tradition, being a man of honour or just being someone who always does things a certain way.
Chaos is more about adaptability, resentment of authority, irresponsibility and freedom.
Alignment system a shit.
>Law is good and chaos is evil, this is unquestionable
MEANWHILE ON GOD'S LASER CANNON….
And the people are better off dead
Should they instead starve and kill each other?
>I'm a True Neutral
Kazuma from Scryed is probably the best example of CN that I can think of in anime.
lawfags really believe this?
It is time to agitate fa/tg/uys.
Both paths had shitty outcomes and neither felt like a better "good guy" choice than the other . It just so happened that Lawful was being a bigger dick that week.
>Do you respect the leaders of your family?
Their words guide my actions.
They're role models for me.
They're often out of touch with my life.
They're out of touch with reality.
Well lets see which one fits with trained me for the inevitable demon apocalypse? I wish I was joking.
Well I thought I'd get lawful evil.
