Favorite Supporting Protagonists

Yes, I mean the trope. Who is your favorite protagonist who does not take the center stage... okay it'd be easier to use this.

Anyway, here's a couple of mine.

Lucy (Fairy Tail): A down to earth character who allows the audience to ease into the story, since she's just as flustered as us. I originally didn't quite care about her, focusing more on Natsu who was The Hero, but she's really evolved I think. Going from something of a curious fangirl, to a courageous person who'll protect her friends.

Zenkichi(Medaka Box): I initially thought that Zenkichi was a tired archetype; the ordinary high school student who is always surrounded by more interesting people. But by the end of the first chapter, he drew me in. Just as determined as anyone else in the story, he brings out a positive aspect of human nature.

Hey Isaac?

Yes Miria?

There's someone who made a thread asking for people's favorite supporting characters. I think we should stake it out.

What for? Aren't we the main characters in our own life?

That's a very good point, Isaac!

Edit: It's Isaac and Miria from the Baccano! anime.

Koshiro Hyuga from the anime Kamisama Dolls is a good supporting protaganists. He often supports and checks in on the main character and is a father figure towards another character named Utao Kuga who was treated badly in the vilage they lived in by the others.

Nymph from Sora No Otoshimono has evil intentions at first, but eventually turns good. She make's quite a few sacrifices for the main characters including her masters and wings which made her who she is. Also, she's adorable

Insert all the main male love interests of my favorite heroines here and vice-versa.

Death the Kid gets an honorable mention. It is rare for me to really love another male character who is not romantically involved with the central protagonist (Maka). But 51 episodes later, I still can't figure out who I like more: Kid or Soul. It's like....they TIE.

I very rarely prefer the Main Character over the support characters, so the list is rather large for me.

I'll just list my favourites.

Rock Lee - Naruto

Sunohara - Clannad

Tohsaka Rin - Fate/Stay Night

Alex Louis Armstrong - Full Metal Alchemist
