I have previously asked what makes you not like a fictional character, so I thought I would ask the opposite, what makes you love a fictional character and consider them a favourite, or that you like/love them a lot?

Personally, its comes down to two things:
1. Relatability (Toph Beifong, Louise Belcher, etc. etc)
2. Personality (Sid Chang, Sue Ellen Armstrong, etc. etc)

Of course, there are other reasons why I like a character, such as a character design (Vulpix) or a character's potential (Allison Taylor).
 
I'm not sure. In order to answer that I would have to look at a bunch of characters that I know rank among my absolute favorites and see if there is anything tying them together. Here are 10 characters that immediately come to mind when I think of my favorites in all of fiction:

1 Bart Simpson
2 Lisa Simpson
3 Jasoon Voorhees (the killer with the hockey mask from the Friday the 13th films)
4 Garfield (the cat, yes)
5 C-3PO
6 Gollum
7 The Stay Puffed Marshmallow Man
8 The Dilophosaurus from Jurassic park
9 Metal Sonic
10 Gohan from Dragon Ball

Let's see now... a lot of them are not very pleasant people. But some of them are very pleasant, like Lisa and Gohan. A lot of them are really cool, some of them really not having anything going for them other than looking cool and doing cool things (Jason) or merely looking cool but seldom ever doing anything cool (Metal Sonic). Some of them can barely be considered characters (the Dilophosaurus). One thing that's kind of consistent though is that hardly any of them look like regular boring humans. Most of them aren't human, and out of the ones that are most of them are stylized cartoon characters that don't look anything like real people (Bart and Lisa). Gohan is the most human looking of all, but even he isn't all that realistic, being an animu character what with the giant eyes and simplified details and all. I think I'm generally bored by realistic people.

Why I like Alex Whitney: With Alex, it's more of the factors mentioned here. I like her personality, sometimes she can offend someone, but in the end she always means well and is very kind and generous. I like her in "Lard of the Dance", but I think it would be good if she appeared in other epidodes. Oh, and I like the character design a lot too.
 
I tend to like complicated characters that the fandom or canon is harsh on because they interest me or himbos because they're cute. Also enjoy exploring father and child relationships even if the dad isn't perfect or the kid isn't always receptive, the fact that they are trying warms my heart.

Like I adore Cera's dad Topsy in land before time series. Yes he was gruff and racist in the first film but we see him grow past his prejudices and become a more respectable leader and it becomes very clear he loves Cera even though he is strict and somewhat disapproving of her friend choices he still lets her be part of the gang eventually.

I think what got me liking him was his role in the third movie. There is a drought and he becomes over zealous patrolling the water hole but his song makes it very clear why.

Some choice lyrics
I used to hear my father say
Stand and fight, don't run away!
He made me what I am today
I'm here, and I'm tough!

You say I'm mean,
You say why bother?
Well I have a daughter
And I'm her father
I'm gonna make sure
We all have water enough
That's why I'm tough!


See he is motivated by a desire to protect and he's breaking the cycle of bad parenting slowly. And when he and Cera are trapped in a wild fire at midpoint of the movie he struggles but does thank grandpa long neck for saving him. And he is also aware enough to see his bad qualities reflected in Hyp's father (telling him that he also scolds his child too much and that if you only ever respond in anger, that's all your child will know.)

He gets great development in the 7th, 11th and 12th movies too. We see his trauma (his first wife is implied to have followed a splinter group in the great earth shake from the 1st movie and died when their leader takes an unsafe path) and he finds a second love when a childhood friend moves into the valley. They have a child together and he learns to balance loving two children of different ages equally and becomes more open to praising Cera and shows very off how much he loves her stepmom Tria and baby Tricia.

I'm sorry if this way too much dad dino talk but I do love the character. A lot of the land before time fandom can not get past his infamous comment in the first movie "three horns never play with long necks!" and ignores that Topsy becomes co leaders of a mixed pack of dinos once everyone reaches the great valley. I also hate how the movies are regarded as cheapquels or unnecessary because don bluth isn't involved but they have good lessons for kids and if you're willing to marathon them there's lore and continuity! I had like the first 4 movies as a kid and through YouTube and cartoon network I've seen most, if not all, of the rest.

My checklist for what makes me love a fictional character:
  • They're smart
  • They're a middle child
  • They're eight years old
  • They have pointy hair
  • They wear a red dress and pearls
  • They play the saxophone
  • They're Lisa Simpson :lisa:
If these criteria are fulfilled, you have a perfect character. To me a character has to be relatable, wise and mature in order to be likable. And Lisa meets all of these characteristics.

Yep you definitely do (and she absolutely is wise, mature and super relatable to me too)! Lisa's just the perfect character for me and she always has been. :lisa: :heart:
 
You ever write out a whole answer and then realize you never posted it, and a whole week passed so your draft is gone?

My bad.

On the bright side, :) I love all the times NHC has saved drafts of my posts! It's wonderful. Twitter or Instagram would never. :D

Anyway, what makes me love a fictional character is very simple. Two ingredients:
  • Powerful, serious, and intimidating on the outside.......
    but actually
  • deeply miserable/insecure on the inside🥺
The first one by itself is OK. Makes for a nice villain.
But as soon as we see the same character vent their misery, vulnerability, and helplessness?! OH MAN!
Seeing the "big bad" character fumble over their words, be nervous, express their disappointment, be extra-nice because they're scared of someone they consider "above" them, or reveal ways they've gotten hurt in the past...oh, my God! It does something to me, big time. Chances are, I will adopt them into my heart and love them forever.

That's something in common among every character I've ever loved.
A few that come to mind are Peridot, TF2 Sniper, Captain Hook, Dr. Drakken, Doofenshmirtz, Mikey Simon, and...uh, I'll spare you the obvious Simpsons ones.

Also being a well-dressed middle aged man definitely helps

Your love for this dad makes me:
1) want to rewatch what you're referring to, because you are pitching its strong points very well, and
2) makes me wonder if you've ever seen Bob's Burgers? Although Bob isn't an ideal dad by any means, he tries really hard to be a good dad and I'd say he gets pretty darn close. The show is full of wholesome father-daughter and father-son moments, so I feel like you'd enjoy it.

The fact that you guys get along so well is just so hilariously in-character for Lisa.
Like, of course her fans act as peaceful, pleasant, and harmoniously as she does.:lol:
 
I love early Bob's burgers. Haven't seen many recently but some of my favorites are the one where Tina hits a car, the one where Bob and Louise are on a field trip, and the one where he takes Gene to see a concert/laser light show. Bob is such a nice guy, he really would do anything for his kids. 💕

Tina's horniness gets a bit much at times but whenever she's not crushing on a boy she's pretty endearing too. The thunder girls episodes are great.
 
It really doesn’t take much for me to get attached to and feel like I love a character, which sometimes could be a flaw as it means I might ignore said characters real flaws. I have a broad range of reasons why I might love certain fictional characters. You can almost always bet a badass woman will be a character I latch on to in some capacity. Or a cute/funny animal companion. Or a character that is pro at delivering one-liners at the right moment. Or adorably quirky characters. It’s possible for me to “love” a whole entire show’s cast of characters at times 😅
 
I think I Love Lisa cloned herself.
I definitely don't have cloning technology I'm using to fill the world with Lisa fans. No definitely not. That would just be crazy. :suspicious:

(I can confirm @Lisa Marie Simpson's assurance that she's not a clone anyway. It was a pleasant surprise to me that we've gained another Lisa fangirl here! :lisa:)

Ha ha maybe there's just a Lisa fangirl way of acting? I'm happy to be described as "peaceful, pleasant and harmonious" anyway! :aww:

OHHH! I watched the first two you mentioned recently, but I haven't seen the last one in a while! I just thought of Gene this morning because of his THIS IS ME NOW! clip (which I really relate to).

So maybe I'll watch some Bob's Burgers tonight after with my regular All Hail King Julien viewing. :D

Although I might agree in later seasons, I generally like Tina being so boy-obsessed because of how rare it is to see a nerdy pervy and unattractive female character in media! Since we usually see the opposite, I find it refreshing! Not to mention relatable. XD
However yeah it can get annoying in later seasons, when it seems like Tina's brain can't pass the Bechdel test, and she doesn't have a life outside of wanting to date people. Then it just falls back on age-old stereotypes about her "needing" a relationship, which makes for a desparate and uninteresting character IMO.
But in regards to the general horny factor, I was an...uh, extremely one-track-minded tween, so I actually find Tina a very accurate portrayal of middle school. :lol:

It sounds like you enjoy a diversity of characters, but generally you are drawn towards personalities that are optimistic, bright, and act authentically "themselves". It may be broad, but would you say this is an accurate analysis?

A pleasant surprise to me, too!!!!!!!!! Lisa Marie Simpson, as you know, you've been a great addition to NHC.

Since I'm in good company here, and it feels relevant on a fictional-character-appreciation thread, I have to admit:

Kid-me loved Lisa SO MUCH that I made a YouTube channel under Lisa's name and RP'd as her!
I posted a bunch of Lisa pics I edited together in Windows Movie Maker with the song "Love Generation" LOL!
Sadly I can't find the YouTube Channel now, :( only the one I made for my own cartoons in 2006.
But I promise it exists somewhere. XD

All I remember for sure is: the profile picture was this pic. :)

This illustrates a main reason I love Lisa. She has the bravery to be tough and stand up for what she believes in, even if she stands alone. For example, even if her family were meat-eaters, she resolved to be a vegetarian because of what she believed in. She wasn't told to do it and she wasn't scared into it; it was her spiritual decision. I admire her courage.

Ha ha maybe there's just a Lisa fangirl way of acting?
Yes, I absolutely think so! Now I just wonder what the Skinner-fan (or, Chalmers-fan?) way of acting is. For Skinner, it used to be me and Sgt_Snuff, we would obsess over his Vietnam war timeline on here :lol:
 
@MaggotMagnet I definitely do gravitate towards characters that are authentic and do not put on acts or airs about things. But bright and optimistic is partially right. Two bright/optimistic characters I really like are Kasumi Tendo (Ranma 1/2) who is very kind and optimistic almost to a fault, and Leslie Knope (Parks & Recreation) who is naively optimistic about the majority of the goals she works towards. Meanwhile three of my favorites characters in media that I relate to a lot are Darlene Conner (Roseanne), Daria Morgendorfer (Daria) and Raven (Teen Titans). All are very far from bright and optimistic, much like me 😆

The No Homers Club will never run out of Lisa fangirls :lol:
All of us Lisa fans tend to act in that way (or similarly at least). We don't like to quarrel, act hostile towards one another. We all respect each other and there is no bigger or smaller Lisa fan :aww:
Same could be said about most other characters as well.

Thank you so much. I really enjoy talking to others about the show and how much they love Lisa :lisa:
That's so great that you used to have a Lisa-themed YouTube account. I actually use Lisa-themed account names (as well as pfps) for every social media I'm on, be it Discord, Reddit or Steam :lol:. As for her vegetarianism: I think it was super courageous of her to become a vegetarian in an environment full of judgmental people and I only wish I could follow through with being a vegetarian just like her, which is one of my main reasons for admiring her.

OH I LOOOOOVE DARIA! She is hilarious!!!! I'm so glad she was "born" in Beavis and Butthead because she definitely deserved her own show. I believe I've seen it all except the movie.

Ah, yes, I see. I wasn't entirely correct! I guess authenticity is above all!

For the record Starfire was my favorite. It was her optimism that made me love her! I guess she doesn't fit my criteria of "powerful but insecure" (maybe she does?). But I guess my taste has changed since I was a kid.

So true; Springfield is incredibly judgmental, hahha.

Warning: Off-topic vegetarian talk
I hope you do what feels right for you!
I'm not a vegetarian, but kind of a flexitarian. I often dabble in veg-entrees, because of where I live. Morris County has a huge vibrant Desi community, and therefore we have plenty of Indian grocery stores, cultural centers, and restaurants! Many of these eateries are Jain (religiously vegetarian) - and, after a few thousand years of being vegeterian, their food is SO FUN, CREATIVE, AND DELICIOUS! I'm talking crunchy dosa pancakes, paneer curries, and so much fun stuff to try. Should you would ever want to follow through, I am sending the faith and courage to do so. :lisa:

I am kind of a vegetarian who only eats meat whenever I run low on iron since most of the vegetarian meals with iron in it don't help me maintain an average level of iron for some reason. I'm not the biggest fan of having meat, but if that means that I'm no longer low on iron, I would gladly eat a little piece of meat, even if it feels wrong :lol:
 
For me there are several factors with the most common ones being relatability (Pearl, Raven, Libby Stein-Torres, Marcy Wu) the kind of personality they have (Sid Chang, Luna Loud, Frankie Foster), usually with a snarky sense of humor (Jasper T. Jowls beginning around 1999, Shego, Ophelia Ramirez) which may or may not be a front tommask their own insecurities (Nikki Wong, Supergirl from DC Super Hero Girls), being the outsider (though I guess that's an extension of relatability; Luz, J.P., Gonzo) as well as being the ones who end up enduring the most and facing the biggest hardships (Cassandra from Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure) usually the form of dealing with the death of someone who was very important to them (Luz, Pearl, Rogue, Katara, Artemis).


A few examples for me would be:

Raven (Teen Titans): Not only my awakening for realizing that Goths are cool, but also my awakening for what makes for a great fictional characters in my books which is perfectly highlighted in any episode where she was the main focus as well as Season 4 where she was the season's central character. Back then when I was 8 or 9 though, I probably wouldn't have been able to give an exact reason for why I felt this way about her other than 'she's cool and she wears blue (my favorite color)!'.

Pearl (Steven Universe): At the time I began watching the show which was mere weeks before my 20th birthday, she was definitely an outlier when it came to great fictional characters as on the surface she only had relatability going for her. But overtime she became more layered by showing signs of insecurities due to the set purpose of her Gem species (essentially a servant) as well as the very sensitive but relatable subject of her often mourning Rose's death (which actually was first introduced right when I first got into the show) as she was the one who made her feel like she could be more than what she was made for. She's also the earliest example I can think of as the kind of character that's written in a way as if they might be somewhere on the Autism spectrum based on their characteristics (see Dendy from OK K.O. & Marcy Wu from Amphibia as other examples) which definitely helps in the relatability category as someone who's on the spectrum.

Gonzo (The Muppets): In a found family of outsiders who were brought together through the same dream of wanting to make millions of people happy, he stands out as he's still the resident outsider whether it'd be though his thrill seeking passion or being the only one of his kind oft referred to as a 'Whatever'. Yes I'm aware of Muppets from Space revealing he's actually an alien, but I don't count that and to be fair neither do a few who are still associated with the Muppets.

Libby Stein-Torres (The Ghost and Molly McGee): In recent years where we have often upbeat and peppy characters (such as the title character for this show), Libby definitely stands out simply for how we have one of the show's biggest recurring characters be one who has several mental anxieties in a way that I can't recall being portrayed on a show aimed at a kid based demographic since Telly from Sesame Street. Furthermore, we even have an episode (Mazel Tov, Libby) that basically states that Libby is OK with her anxieties and insecurities to which the cancelled episode Glass Half Libby would've further highlighted by essentially stating that said issues can't simply be fixed and you're best option as a best friend is to be supportive and accepting of that.

Yes, I absolutely think so! Now I just wonder what the Skinner-fan (or, Chalmers-fan?) way of acting is. For Skinner, it used to be me and Sgt_Snuff, we would obsess over his Vietnam war timeline on here :lol:
Ah I do miss Sgt_Snuff. She was a great user for the quite brief time she was here. If you and her are anything to go on then I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that Skinner fans are wonderful people. :)

First of all I love your reason for loving Lisa - that's such a positive way of looking at her! - but more importantly... Omigosh I can't believe you made a Lisa Youtube channel! That sounds so sweet and adorable and it's such a shame that you can't find it. I'd love to see it if you ever find it again because I'm sure it would be just lovely and wholesome to watch. :aww: Sounds like we would have been very good friends if we knew each other as kids!

I hear you loud and clear about this. I LOVE Pearl and it's for a lot of the same reasons. Seeing her as a fully 3-dimensional character, alternating between strict to relaxed, assured to insecure, put-together to falling-apart...she was just truly a fantastically written hero. Plus, I agree, her autistic adorkableness was extremely relatable! SU was a great show!

I'd love to see it if you ever find it again because I'm sure it would be just lovely and wholesome to watch. :aww: Sounds like we would have been very good friends if we knew each other as kids!
I can't help but read y'all Lisa-fans' forum posts in her voice! :D

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Yes, I'm sure we would have been obsessing over Lisa circa 2010. Great to be friends as adults, however! :D

if they have big breasts (this goes for both male and females)
That is hilarious, LOL. Now I need to know which, if any, men of Springfield meet your criteria. :lol:
Also your signature uHSDUFHFUDSF. I don't even know my feelings about it. I can't even say if I agree or disagree, I am still processing my feelings 💀

Wellllllll aside from my obvious pick of Lassen (asymmetrical nips and all) I gotta say its hard to narrow down all the obesity-crisis-caused milkers in Springfield atm :whisper::lol:

Aww yeah of course It's great to be friends as adults! :D (Although in 2010 I was already legally an adult anyway)

Also I'm feeling very aware that I've Lisa-d all over this thread, but honestly Lisa is the only fictional character I'd actually say I love. There are a lot of other characters I really like of course, but none of them near as much as Lisa so my genuine answer to what makes me love a character really is just... if they're Lisa. :lisa:
