Side characters who are more interesting than the main character

This list isn't claiming that the main characters in these items are bad just that their supporting cast can sometimes out shine them.

List items

  • I like Naruto but Lee has an infinitely more interesting story. He doesn't have the advantages of Naruto with his 9 tails energy or the powerful blood line like Sauske. He works his ass off and is pretty damned entertaining.

  • I could watch a whole show about this dude.

  • Sorry Bat fans, no disrespect, I've just always been more interested in the First Robin.

  • Sorry Luke and Vader, Han is just cooler.

  • He's a rat bastard but he was the best character on Firefly and the main reason I miss the show.

  • I like Ollie on Arrow but Diggle gets the best dialogue on the show.

  • This is just a necessity for this list. Admit it, he's got way more to do with you watching DBZ than Goku ever did.

  • This is more from the show Gotham. As much as I love Jim Gordon in the comics the dude on the show is one note but Bullock makes it watchable.

@deadcool_xd: I've been a Bullock fan since TAS, honestly I never cared for the GCPD outside of Gordon in the comics until they did an episode of the animated series dedicated to Bullock, it made think the GCPD was more than Batman's clean up crew.

Defiantly with Rock Lee. Naruto is so annoying.

If you are adding support characters, how about Luna Lovegood? Way more interesting than the 'Golden Trio'.

Yeah, Han Solo's the man.

You should check out Gotham Central if you're interested. It's a great series and what cleared up the same misconceptions for me.

@symbioticspider-man: I don't dislike Goku. But Vegita is a more well rounded character. Goku can have cool moments but he's basically the same at the end as he was on the first episode of Dragon Ball, more powerful yes but still basically the same. Vegita on the other hand while an asshole throughout the series he's radically different from the monster he started as.

Him and Piccolo probably have the most development of anyone on the show.

Han Solo for sure.

Vegeta definitely.

Dick Grayson? I like Tim Drake more myself.

I'd add Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Good list.

@stumpy49er: Spike is the best character on Buffy and was pretty much 90% of the reason season 7 of Angel was watchable. I know I'm in an extreme minority here but other than Damien and Carrey Kelly I think all the Robins are more interesting than Batman. Damien is about equal with Bats and I just don't give a crap about Kelly. Before I get complaints, its not because she was a girl, its because she was a completely useless character. Tho to be fair she is a female Frank Miller creation so we're lucky she isn't a psychotic hooker.

@joshmightbe: Agreed about Spike.

I'm a Bats fan myself but I absolutely respect the love for the Robins. Tim Drake and Dick Grayson are awesome. Jason Todd got good with Red Hood and I actually started liking Damien more after he died. He went out like a beast. Gotta respect that.
