Favourite fictional characters

I'm just really curious to know which characters from all fandoms you guys like. Again, I'm sorry is this topic has been asked before.

As for me, I have a couple I really like. Mostly I grow to like characters because of their personalities and such. For example, one of my most favourite characters is Jet from Cowboy Bebop. He's just such an interesting character with a good balance of good and bad traits. I also love Lindsay Weir from Freaks and Geeks. Her character development is probably my favourite from anything I've ever seen. The way she eventually fits in with the Freaks in the show is really nice and the interactions she has with all characters through the show make her one of my favourite characters of all time.

But if we're going off asethetics, I recently spent the day with my grandmother and she pulled out all the old VCRs me and my sister owned and we chose to watch the Barbie Fairytopia movie for some reason (probably nostalgia. It was one of our favourite films ever) and my crush on Topaz came back. It's funny to think that I found Topaz highly attractive as a 10 year old way before I discovered I was a lesbian.

Anyway, what characters do you enjoy for aesthetic or characterisation purposes?

I don't think this was asked before :)

Your favourites are interesting :) I should probably check out these series.

I'm not really involved in many fandoms beyond WD.  So, most of my favourite characters are WD characters (Fiver and Hyzenthlay, they both have amazing personalities, and Hyzenthlay is pretty in the movie).

For other fandoms...for the personality I would probably choose Chester from the "Bunnicula" series of books (not a fan of his portrayal in the TV series though).  It's been a while since I last read this book though, I should probably do it again...

As for aesthetics, I might go with Babs Bunny from Tiny Toon Adventures.

Personally I like all the aspects of the character that I choose as: Silverweed, babbunny, Fiver, Mrs. Brisbi among some others that fascinate me for what they are, not only for how they look.    :blackberry3
Personally, I love Nanachi, for how she looks adorable, as well as her sad story.

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

It's taken me way too long to see this, but I have to agree with you on Mrs Brisby (?Frisby, but that's besides the point). Assuming we're talking about the field mouse, I'm totally with you, Acacia! Her character is so fascinating, and she is my favourite little mouse in the world!
