To the surprise of literally no-one, Maximilian Goof
As for the why, I'm really not 100% sure. Like, I can see a certain amount of myself in him, but nowhere near enough that should create the connection I have to him. He's just cool and I like him because reasons.

You know, I came in here ready to answer like "oh, this is my kind of topic!", but then had to think about it for like 20 minutes because it's really hard to pick a single favorite character. Most of my favorites are ones that remind me a lot of myself (like my current theme now, Ryo Marufuji from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX), but I guess if I have to choose one and one alone...

Noel Kreiss from Final Fantasy XIII-2 (and Lightning Returns).

In a way perhaps I'd consider him similar to me in personality (certain mannerisms he does, like I always notice all the hand motions he does while talking compared to the rest of the cast lol, and that he is fairly direct and can be a bit blunt and has a bit of a sarcastic side at times), but... much, MUCH more resilient and strong and tenacious. Admirable. More of a character I legitimately admire than one I just see bits of myself in. I mean, this is a character who was the last human left in the future he came from, but never gave up and actually got the chance to try to set things right. Things didn't work out like he wanted, but unlike many other characters in that series, he never gave up hope, even when it hurt. If only I could be that way haha. I also tend to really like characters that are sort of "protectors" in a way (I think that's the root of why a scarily high percentage of my faves are older brothers lmao), and I just loved the way Noel really wanted to have kept Yeul safe, and to keep Serah safe.

Because I almost feel guilty not mentioning other faves, honorable mentions to Kurasame Susaya (Final Fantasy Type-0), Koyo Kasugai (Fafner in the Azure), Innes (Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones), Conrad (Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia), Logy Ficsario (Atelier Escha & Logy), Otacon (Metal Gear Solid), Silver the Hedgehog (...this one is obvious the series lol), Vyse (Skies of Arcadia) and far too many more.

It would take me aaaaaages to list all my favorite fictional characters but Chrom from Fire Emblem has been at the top of my list for nearly four years. I'm just such a sucker for big dumb idiots with big hearts and terrible social skills and Chrom is definitely one of the biggest examples there is. Getting to meet his voice actor last year is one of the best things that's ever happened to me.

(I could honestly go on for much, MUCH longer about why I love Chrom so much but I'd rather not force you guys into reading a novel-length post about this moron so I'm just going to leave it there :p )

Tsareena is my true favorite character but oof I always talk about Tsareena and feel bad that I do, so i'll talk about a character that isn't Pokemon lol.

My favorite NON Pokemon character... Is Shademan.EXE from Megaman Battle Network.
Just... omg look at this guy.
He has such a good design! He just looks so fierce and is such a creative reinterpretation of the original Shademan. I loved him so much in Axess. He was such a cool villain with crazy impressive strength (He literally picked up an entire bus and yeeted it like it was nothing lol) and determination, and I honestly find myself sympathizing/agreeing with his idea to take over the world and let Netnavis rule. I mean seriously humans in the BN world treat Netnavis like garbage sometimes.
It's honestly baffling to me how little attention this guy seems to get honestly. Like... he's just SO COOL OMG!!! Why does no one care about him ;-;

I have way too many favorite fictional characters. But if I had to pick only one, that would probably be Harry Potter.

There are lots of qualities about him that I find admirable. He is brave, kind, helpful and smart. In fact I think his intelligence is quite underrated.

He also tries to help his enemies. Such as that time when he rescued Draco from Room of Requirement or when he asked Voldemort to try for some remorse.

He has been through a lot but still keeps going, which is really inspiring. And he is really good at magic too. Obviously not on Dumbledore-level or anything, but still quite impressive.

I really hate how the Cursed Child book treated him, but I guess this isn't the place to talk about that lol.

Also his sarcasm. He can be really funny and sarcastic when he wants to.

The ninja turtles. Other superheroes need to keep their identities a secret. The turtles have to keep their existence a secret. Due to their being as non-human, people fear them based only on their looks rather than their actions. whereas it is other superheroes actions (or interpreted/perceived actions) that causes them any bad publicity even if they're still innocent. Plus, they don't have easy resources like other superheroes. Yet they protect their city and when necessary, the world, whether its no name pick pockets or supervillain attacks all without any sort of real reward. They look out for each other and others in need.

Also, in this age of fiction where powers and firearms run supreme, ancient ninja weapons are a refreshing change of pace. Not that the turtles don't use the former methods.

I have way too many to list, but for the sake of simplicity, I'll go with the one who has the most similarities to me personally. That character is Yayoi Kise aka Cure Peace from Smile Pretty Cure. (No, I am NOT calling her Lily, Glitter Force!).

118099

She's a shy girl who always tries to be kind to everyone and likes drawing, just like I do! I knew she was going to be my favorite when I started watching Smile Precure, and even though it's still a rather generic anime, Yayoi is not only the best character overall, she's the most fleshed out and three-dimensional. I have a bunch of Cure Peace toys, that's how much I love her! She's not autistic like I am, but I love a character who shares a lot of my personality traits, plus she's just so stinkin' cute! I just wish Glitter Force didn't give her a terrible voice and catchphrase. Granted, I no longer participate in the Precure fandom and I don't watch the shows anymore, but Yayoi is still great and I'll always love her.

Bojack Horseman. As someone who has suffered from depression, I can see myself in him. He's a very interesting character as, while he is an asshole, you can see where he's coming from.

Bumblebee from Transformers. He's fiercely loyal to those he calls his friends and would do anything to protect them from harm, including risking his own life. He's courageous with an indomitable spirit, but he's also funny and down to earth. If you need someone on your side, you'd be extremely lucky to have him with you. I've loved him since I was nine years old and I still do. I always will.

Ah no problem, we all need some help at times so glad to help.

It'd be hamburgers for me. When made right I don't get tired of them. And if I really needed to change it up I'd just change whatever toppings I put on it.

if we're talking about a single cuisine then it would 100% be Chinese food. I love Chinese food so much you guys~

Now, if we're talking about a single food item, that becomes a bit harder to pick. I guess I would say miso soup cause when I go all-out on it it has so much stuff in it that I'd never get bored of it.

Rice. Rice can be flavored and cooked in so many ways! And it’s good for you.
Bread is also another great choice for a similar reason.
