Favorite Slayers Character (All Series)

So, who's your favorite Slayers Character? Mine's Xellos, definately. He's the cool mysterious dude we all wish we were, plus he's got a great sense of humor XD Your favorite character might be different though! So, i propose we have this contest to have a favorite character super poll. If your character isn't up there, its probably because I forgot their names. (I remember almost everyones character, but names always escape me...)

It's tough to choose just one, but I'd probably have to place my potato on Zelgadis, if not The Enemy of All Who Live, herself.

In that case, I'd have to say Gourry... but his novel counterpart moreso than his anime  :numnumgiri:

I just remembered Martina's name, so she's now up to. She was kind of adorable in her own sad little way.

I like Gourry, he is sooo funny! %)
Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
And don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
Well, you can do anything, but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Mmm, that's such a hard question.  I love me some Xellos, but for my own twisted reasons.  I'd have to go with Lina, but paired with Gourry 'cause they're so awesome together.
And man, I agree, the Gourry of the novels is much cooler.

I need to get around to reading the novels at some point, but I'm reluctant when I know there's a few from the main series I'll never get to read. It'd drive me absolutely bonkers.

So, just what makes Novel-Gourry so much better? I'm curious.

Ehhh....
Well, he's not quite as flat out stupid as he is in the anime.  He will, however, readily admit that he let's Lina do all the thinking  because he doesn't care to.  So he just a bit more whipped.  The novels are also a bit more mature.  Not in a bump and grind sexy way but there are a few things said that are a little naughty.  And also he doesn't seem like such a goody goody.  In the anime, don't get me wrong, I love the anime, he can come across as a little...um... sweet?  That's not quite the word I needed, but yeah.  Anime Gourry can come across as just down right stupid while novel Gourry is really absent minded and doesn't care to remember things he deems unimportant.  Like most things magical, etc...
Well, that didn't make any sense.
Hope it enlightened you.
Haha...

Just to elaborate on Shayde's post, novel gourry is more scatterbrained than stupid. When it comes to it, he doesn't sit there with the durrr look on his face and forget about thinking completely (like his anime counterpart). He does have common sense, especially when it comes to fighting. He's a lot more intelligent about it than the rest, and that's where you really can feel the former mercenary thing shining through. Although I'm not sure what Shayde meant by the mature dialogue, since the worst I can remember is the whole euphemistic sword play (and that was on Lina's part!)- unless you were talking about the take me home bit in the final volume?

Falces actually portrays Gourry much more faithfully to his novel counterpart than the anime, so it's a good start for what he's really like. Poor guy hit a high point in NEXT and after that his IQ has been dropping like a rock  :blah:

The "swordfight" was a great line, but I was talking about the getting naked and cuddling for body-heat part in Vol. 2.

Ah, thanks. I had noticed he was rather dumbed down since TRY. It was always nice when he actually showed he's a little less of a dolt.

Errr... Wow. I was a little jarred by Lina groping Amelia in the openining to Falces, I guess that was truer to the source material than I had though.

Wellll, Lina never did anything like that to Amelia  :moegiri: Other than that, the characterization's pretty spot on.

My favourite character is Lina. I enjoy seeing her blast everyone who makes her angry.
