Dude, this is debatable... Cause L died in DN and Kudo just shrunk in DC... You can say Kudo has an advantage in terms of luck... Hehe...

Colonel Roy Mustang and Maes Hughes unfortunately did not make the list (Full Metal Alchemist).

Yah Roy Mustang is cool too, probably the coolest in FMA and Portgas D. Ace is the coolest in One Piece eventhough they both use Fire Power...

I thought it would be hard to complete a Top20 so I reduced it to 10.... Should have made my list at least 15...

1. Shinichi. <3 <3 <3 <3 He's adorable.

2. Kousuke from Law of Ueki. He's so strong-willed yet stupid. Luff him! "aaah..sokka!"

3. MORITA SHI-NO-BU!!!!!! You just need to watch the first 10 minutes of Honey and Clover to know how awesome he is. JUST WATCH. XD "Aah..I'm [not only wearing Mayama's shirt], but his underwear, too. Wanna see, Yamada-san?" Morita's the one who'll organise a concert for himself, full of fangirls, spotlights, and speakers the day his graduate thesis is due. XD

4. Ai Mori from Law of Ueki. Utter cuteness. <3 Her power is just LOL. Those glasses! XD

5. All characters from Cardcaptor Sakura, specially Shaoran & Tomoyo. That anime remains my absolute favourite because I first watched it when I was 5, thus, being the first anime I ever watched and completed.

6. Minori from Toradora! Sacrificing someone you like for your best friend..that's why I love her.

7. Ran, of course! What's not to like?

8. Takemoto. His character development through the 24 episodes of Honey and Clover is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

For the last two.. I really don't know, I've only complete 3 or 4 series XD

I guess my list would consist of...

Haibara Ai (Detective Conan)
Oni Link/Fierce Deity Link (Zelda no Densetsu: Majora no Kamen manga)
Date Seiji (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors)
Kino Makoto/Sailor Jupiter (Sailor Moon)
Mirai no Trunks (Dragon Ball Z)
Izumi Koushirou (Digimon Adventure/Adventure 02)
Near (Deathnote)
Souma Momiji (Fruits Basket)
Tails (Sonic X)
Genis Sage (Tales of Symphonia)

I was trying my best not to list a lot of characters for one series.  This was actually difficult.

Nah, he's justice.

EDIT: also, to backup my statement that L is a better tantei than Kudo...while Kudo is in fact a brilliant detective, he only specializes really in homicide cases, while L is pretty much the "go-to" guy for the entire world when it comes to important cases.  L's nature of always second-guessing something and his boldness (revealing his identity to who he suspects as kira to continue the case) is something i think Kudo lacks. 

Plus, just thinking about it, I can't imagine Kudo being able to solve a case when it involves something as trivial as shinigami and a killer notebook, he simply won't believe it.  He can't even realize haibara has feelings 4 her  ::) (oh yeah, I went there)

Well... here is the problem.... They are both fictional characters from two extremely different genres. Death Note is more of a supernatural thriller, where as Detective Conan is almost purely mystery. Therefore, in Conan's world the Death Note would not exist, which means there would be no reason to believe it. L is probably the most singular unbelievable character in that series imo, in terms of being human. Light is believable, because I can believe that someone given the power to kill... would do exactly that... kill. And no matter who it is... it would be for justice, whether personal or for what they think is the greater good, which was what Light was doing at first, he began doing the former later.

In any case... you cannot compare the two. Death Note was a far better manga than anime, and even considering that, it is still no where near as good as DC imo.

Also, depending on the situation... Killing is absolutely reasonable. For instance... A person is pointing a knife at you, tries to stab you, and a police officer shoots and kills the person trying to stab you in order to save your life, knowing there was no other way. Are you saying that is an unjust killing? Given the cop would probably get in trouble for using excessive force, unless the perp was a serial killer, but still... That is only one example, there are many more that I could probably think of. There are also some people that should be killed because they are beyond rehabilitation. You can't change a sociopath for instance.

Now to get back on topic...

I'm going to try to make a top 10... But really, I'm more of a novel and movie guy... I never really liked anyone from an anime or manga...

Well here goes nothing [In no particular order]

1) Kaitou Kid from DC [The closest thing I am going to get to Arsene Lupin, my all time favorite protagonist on the wrong side of the law]
2) Mutsu Yakumo from Shura no Toki [I chose him specifically because he fought and beat one of my real life idols Miyamoto Musashi, but the entire Mutsu clan is bad ass]
3) Roger Smith [He's sorta like the Japanese version of Bruce Wayne/Batman... only with mecha... That gains him instant points in my book]
4) Nagato Yuki from Suzumiya Haruhi series [I just love her... she is my favorite character on the show]
5) Suzumiya Haruhi [Hard not to like a god...]
6) Lupin III [I don't think I need to explain this one]
7) Jigen from Lupin III [Again, don't think I need to explain]
8) Goemon from Lupin III [Swordsman who can cut through anything? Win right there]
9) Miyano Shiho/Haibara Ai from DC [Another character I simply love, really, she is more like Holmes in personality than Shinichi is]
10) Shion from Shion no Ou [Cute... far too cute, and a kick ass shougi player, and damned strong emotionally]

TBH I didn't want to put more than 1 character per series... but I really couldn't think of many at the time... As Was near completion I came up with the following people, but I don't want to change my list because I really do love those people...
-Zenigata [Didn't make the list because I put too many Lupin III characters on there as is, but Zenigata is awesome... Who else can throw a handcuff to arrest someone from 20 feet away?]
-Lucy from Elfen Lied [Such a great character, really she should have been on the list somewhere]
-Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken [another character that should have been on the list... He is the DEFINITION of Badass, really, if you look in a Japanese dictionary, and look under the equivalent of badass in Japanese, you'll see his picture]
-Takumi from Initial D [Love the character, now that I am caught up with the manga, I can honestly say that his character development has only just begun, its amazing]
-Characters from HSD Kenichi [Most of the main characters from Ryozanpaku were deserving to be on the list, but I wasn't willing to put more than one on the list, which is why they didn't make it at all]
-Madlax from... well Madlax [hot and deadly, there is more to it, but you really have to see the series to understand, also should have made the list...]
-Fujiko [If you don't know, or can't guess... Don't even talk to me...]

You know I really should have thought it out more... Oh well... I guess I technically gave a top 16 [23 if you include the HSD Kenichi characters]
