This thread may be a potential spoiler risk! Careful!
This was inspired by an article in my Game Informer Magazine.
2010 is coming to a close, and with it the 1st decade of the millenium.
In these 10 years we've seen tons of new fictional characters make their debut in TV/Movies/Books/Anime/Manga and of course, Games.
So, tell me who are your favorite characters of this decade?
Keep in mind only characters that made their debut
from 2000-2010 are who i'm focusing on. For example, Mario might have been awesome in Super Mario Galaxy, but he's been around since the 80's so he's not exactly of this decade. Any character that was introduced IN that game however counts.
Also, ill + rep anyone who goes out of their way to provide a small paragraph to tell us about their favorite character/characters.
Here are mine!
Joshua Kiryu - The World Ends With you
One of the Partners in the Reaper's Game: He started off as a really arrogant seeming and stereotype snobby character that i couldn't wait to get rid of. but eventually I began to see just how smart this guy really is.
'The Grim Heaper' may have stole the show in most player's hearts but for me, Joshua's mysterious web unraveled in a surprising and massively rewarding way,revealing a character who only appeared to be arrogant: he may test others but is fair in trial and judgement. Making him worthy of the title he carries.
Marona - Phantom Brave
Marona is a girl who lost her parents at a young age. However, she has the power to communicate with phantoms and confine them to objects. This power causes her to be feared and avoided by most people.
Pretty stereotypical, i know. So what makes her decade worthy?
The fact that she continues to work as a Chroma, or mercenary while treating the people who hire her yet treat her like crap with respect. Eventually as she continues to succeed in her missions and even showing mercy to those who mistreated her in the past: people one by one begin to accept, respect and love her. The heart-string pulling story makes you feel glad for her too when it does happen.
The moral is awesome: You don't HAVE to mistreat people who mistreated you, and there's magic in forgiveness and kindness. And if you don't close your heart you'll eventually find the people who actually will accept you.
Thats a lot better than other stories i've seen where someone is hated for something: where they usually go insane and on some sort of killing spree or over the top revenge on the people who wronged him or her. I think Marona's way is probably going to get better results.
btw... you guys dont have to type as much as i did to get rep from me... im just really big fans of these two...
Okay! So who's your favorite characters of the decade?
