With all of these stereotypes and Sephiroth rip offs popping up everywhere and the whole "I'll be the best!" idea for the main characters in anime, who do you think is the most non stereotyped character in anime?

For me I'd have to say it's Ed from FMA, because the rest of the older brothers in manga all do the same things really and serve the same exact role almost (Sesshomaru and Itachi, for example). What are the most notable characters you think that are in danger of the most stereotyping?

Of course we've all seen the "I don't remember my past" sh!t for a long time (almost precisely after they released FFVII....go figure :d). And the whole best friend giving into evil thing...but what stereotypes do we see the least in anime?

Alucard... his history is pretty unique in any universe lol

C-Ko (Project A-Ko)... hilarious history about aliens, lesbians and superheroes all jumbled up :D

Catgirl twins (Dominion Tank Police originals)... brilliant, just brilliant lol

Haha Alucard is different. He'd be so easy to continuously use over though...my friend say that one manga (Trinity Blood) kind of ripped off Hellsing lol

yeah, he could be overused, but he isn't...

in fact i can only think of a few characters that could actually have a similar history to Alucard...

Well, the characters acted differently, but the plot was pretty similar in to many part.

Most unique characters i can think of are

1.Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion. I have not seen any other main character with avoidant personality disorder.

  1. Light from Death Note. He isn't strong, but he is ingenius, and at the same time, he is just fighting for himself, so he is pretty unique.

  2. Bobobo. No one is like him.
