I have to go with Ichigo or Sasuke. Originally I would have said Naruto but after going through the series again and aside from obvious instances like his fight with Pain(the later part anyway along with the Six Tails) I think it happened less than I originally thought. Which is surprising since he has an actual plot device in him.
Ichigo was killed(or at least nearly killed in one instance) by Ulquiorra twice and was saved by plot both times. Now, Grimmjow having him revived makes sense, but it's still plot. The worst offender is the second time where Ichigo is outright stomped by Ulquiorra and then he immediately revives as VL and starts destroying him. It was completely out of nowhere(unless I missed the hints).
Now for Sasuke, I actually believe that he had more plot armor than Naruto. He was saved several times against Bee, and one of those times he had his chest blown open and the organs destroyed. Then immediately after that he charges in and assaults the Kage Summit and is saved by Obito from Jinton and if we want to be technical him suddenly being able to use Susanoo against the Raikage, although it makes sense why he could use it so I'm hesitant to include that one.
There are other examples but I think those will be enough to at least show why I believe those two have more plot armor than the rest. No hate to either character though.
...and then he immediately revives as VL and starts destroying him. It was completely out of nowhere(unless I missed the hints).
Zangetsu, when Ichigo fought him to unlock his hollow mask, told Ichigo that if he dies he'll take over the body as his own. So no, Ichigo going into VL wasn't out of nowhere.
@ovy7: That's fair, I remember him saying something along the lines that if he became too weak he'd take over so I guess that helps explain it. Still came off as heavy plot armor to me though, maybe it's just how the scene played out coupled with my salt for Ulquiorra losing lol.
Ichigo and Naruto don't really have much Plot they're just tough af and have "inner monsters" to save them. Sasuke had far more plot than Naruto.
Natsu is the most plot helped character, he literally uses the power of friendship to overpower time hax.
Ichigo from the anime I’ve watched
he died twice on the same, only to be resurrected each time.
Not to mention, Ichigo should definitely have died fighting Kenpachi or byakuya, but thank god for that plot armour
Sasuke didn’t really have THAT much plot armor. Karin and Jūgo healing hIm was kinda to be expected.
Tho that instance with jinton was legit plot.
isnt there a gundam protaganist who took a nuke to the face and only got a few injuries?
Yup. That was Kira Yamato from Gundam Seed. I am a massive fan of the gundam franchise but that was some the biggest bullshit I had ever seen at the time and probably still is now. The whole fight between Kira and Shin just dumb
Here is a video that breaks it down. You might find it interesting. Skip to 12:24 for nuke part
