One Piece (Zoro, Buggy, Arlong, Robin)
Rurouni Kenshin (Sanosuke, Saito, Shishio, and the main villain from the last arc, can't remember his name...)
Full Metal Alchemist (Scar, Edward, Roy, Lust)
Trigun Maximum (Woolfwood, the rollerblading samurai [that was totally sweet, wish they would of put the character on rollerblades in the anime], actually most of the Gung Ho Guns)
That's all I can think of at the moment.
Actually, Rai-Dei was in the anime, but I don't think he had rollerblades.
Since we appear to be discussing our favorite characters rather than series we like because of the characters, I'll list some of my favorites.
Alphonse Elric [I love Al ~ he's just a great kid. Er, possessed suit of armor. XD]
1st Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye [Riza is just plain cool. Anyone who can handle firearms that well and put up with Roy Mustang is just plain awesome.]
Major Alex Louis Armstrong [You've got to give it up for the Major. He gives hugs like I do. Plus, any time you see him appear, you know you're going to smile.]
Lieutenant Colonel Maes Hughes [A sly intelligence officer, expert knife-thrower, and loving family man. Hughes is an awesome character, all-around.]
Sven Vollfied [I'm a sucker for the "straight-man/voice of reason" characters. Not only is he the sensible one, he's chivalrous, an inventor, and one snappy dresser. Sven is all class, IMO.]
Lavi [Even though he's a relatively new character as far as the bookstore releases go, I love Lavi. He's so much fun. Plus, he wields a size-changing giant hammer. I have a soft spot in my heart for giant hammers. I loved it when he advised Allen to "call [Kanda] Yuu next time you see him. He'll give you the evil eye!". He's evil like me.]
Arystar Krory [I don't know why I have him listed, since they haven't even finished fighting him yet in the manga, but I like how he goes from emo to "Arrgh I'm going to wreck you up" at the drop of a hat. X-flipping-D. He's going to be fun, oh yes.]
L [How could anyone not love L? He's goofy, socially awkward, and INCREDIBLY BRILLIANT. He also has not one, but a full complement of 32 sweet teeth. XD His "Justice will prevail!" smile was awesome.]
NOT Light Yagami [Light is evil and sneaky and mean and we don't like him, that we don't. Rrgh. : : huggles L : :]
C.T. Smith [There's something that I find really cool about Smith. I like gunslinger characters and intelligent types, and a guy who dresses up when he fights is pretty cool as well. Shame the series is so short, eh?]
Kenshin Himura [Kenshin is still the man ~ the short, skinny, somewhat androgynous man. I usually have an aversion to liking the main protagonist [because that's who the mangaka wants you to love the most, usually], but I can't not like Kenshin. Going from innocent nice guy to master swordsman in the blink of an eye is cool. I also love his selfless heart.
Hiko Seijuro XIII [I don't indentify with Hiko-sensei whatsoever. I still list him because he is so much fun. Also a snappy dresser, and it suits his personality to a T.]
Koushaku Chouno/Papillon [I also do not identify with Koushaku at all ~ thank goodness! Only the man who brought us Kamatari the Heavy Scythe could create such a . . . well . . . fruity character. But he's loads of fun, if only because he's so ridiculous. What was Watsuki-sensei thinking? XD]
Rock Lee [I love Rock Lee ~ in fact, I wish that he was the main character rather than Naruto. You've got to love a guy who refuses to give up on becoming a ninja, even though he has no access to the abilities that make ninja so special. Is he a bit silly? Yes. But the kid's got all the heart in the world. Rock Lee FTW.]
Hinata Hyuuga [Hinata is adorable. I would hug her. A lot. However, she needs to set her standards higher than a certain blond, orange-clad ninja. I can really relate to her because I have a very strong adversion to believing in my own potential.]
Ouran High School Host Club [even though I've only seen the anime]:
Kyouya Ootori [I told you I liked the intelligent, straight-man characters, and Kyouya does this role perfectly. I also love how he's grumpy when he wakes up [the "Low Blood Pressure Evil Lord"] ~ he and I are the same in that respect. Also, I like how he's always dependable and on-the-ball, as well as capable of handling Tamaki, which is a feat in and of itself. I can also identify with his being really a caring person despite seeming cold and aloof, because I am often the same way. We also both love to sleep in.]
Kaoru Hitachiin [I love both of the twins for being so lovably evil, but I like Kaoru more because he's the more thoughtful one. Plus, I love how he supports Hikaru.]
Umehito Nekozawa [He's silly, wears a cloak, loves his sister dearly, and strikes terror into Tamaki's heart. He wins. I would love to cosplay Nekozawa someday.]
Ryouji "Ranka" Fujioka [Ranka is at one both scary and fun. Scary for obvious reasons, but fun because he's so silly and throws Tamaki under the bus any chance he gets. Plus, I like how much he cares for Haruhi, even if she gives him the cold shoulder.]
NOT THE ZUKA CLUB EVER ARGH ARGH ARGH.
Hanataro Yamada [I love Hanataro, sicne we're both convinced that we're pretty useless. I also really like his zanpakuto.]
Gee whiz, it's almost 2 AM. I gotta go to bed, dangit. ^_^
