Okay… I got challenged by @thatdoodlebug and decided to give it a go!
Rules: List ten favourite characters from ten different fandoms and tag ten other users (I won’t be tagging anyone, but everyone reading this are welcome to do it if they want)!
This was quite hard, since I tend to like almost all the characters from my favourite shows/movies/comics etc. I have tried my best to pick my favourites, but be warned - there will be a some honorable mentions here, too! ;)
Here you go, my favourite characters (in a random order):
1. Zootopia, Nick Wilde
I really like Zootopia, and choosing Nick as my favourite from this movie was easy. I think he’s great all through the movie, and he was definitely the character who’s story I got most emotionally involved in. I love how he grows throughout the movie.
Also I ship him and Judy so hard, they better become a couple in the next Zootopia movie
2. The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper
I love this show! Ranty and I watch it all the time, and I like all the characters. Still, my favourite has to be Sheldon - and I think one of the reasons why is that I see so much of myself in him. Of course, there are things he does/says that I would never do/say, but there are many situations in the show where I know I would have reacted the same way Sheldon does. Also lots of people tell me I remind them of him.
3. Skam, Isak
Couldn’t leave Skam out, could I? I LOVE this show! Seriously, I have no words for how great it is. Just watch it now, if you haven’t already. I love all the seasons, but my favourites are number two and three. I had a hard time picking a favourite character, because there are so many good ones (Noora, Eskil, Even, Jonas, William…), but I think my favourite has to be Isak. The actor is amazing (seriously) and the growth of this character from season 1 to season 4 is such a joy to watch. Can’t wait to watch this show again sometime soon!
4. Regular Show, Rigby
I haven’t watched that much of Regular Show, but I really enjoy it - the style and type of humour kinda remind me of my own comics. Its quite difficult for me to choose a favourite character from this show too, but I think Ill have to say Rigby. He’s fun and mean. I like him.
5. Kim Possible, Dr. Drakken (and Shego)
I watched Kim Possible a lot when I was younger and really enjoyed it. I would love to watch all the episodes again some day! :D There are many characters I like from this show, but my ultimate favourite is Dr. Drakken. He’s fun, and I like how there’s not always anything more to him than just that - he’s a wonderful comical relief, which can sometimes surprise you by showing a feeling or two. I also had to mention Shego, because she’s one of the elements in the show that makes him so great. I love them together.
6. Winnie the Pooh, Rabbit
I’ve loved Winnie the Pooh since I was a small child. Back then Piglet was my favourite, and I still like him, but I think my favourite now has to be Rabbit. He’s fun, and again - he kinda reminds me of myself: how he wants to make everything perfect and how he’s constantly done. Basically me at work.
7. Zelda, Nova
I enjoy reading Lina Neidestams comics about Zelda. It`s Swedish, but it`s also being published in different magazines and newspapers here in Norway. There are many fun characters in Zelda, but I think Nova (the person in the middle of this picture) is my favourite. She’s tough, brave and strong but also vulnerable and insecure; she’s the type of character you look up to in one minute and relate to in the next.
8. The Nightmare before Christmas, Jack Skellington
This movie is a tradition both on Halloween and during Christmas for Ranty and me; we love it, and we listened to the soundtrack on the evening when we first met in real life. There are so many great characters in this movie, but I can`t pick anyone else than the pumpkin king, can I? He`s charming, he’s fun, he sings, he messes up, he learns from it, he grows… He’s a great character from a great movie. Easy as that.
9. The Tinkerbell movies, Vidia
The Tinkerbell movies were all released while I was a grown up, and I originally had no plans of watching them. Still I did, and I’m so happy about it - seriously these movies are so nice?! I even introduced them to Ranty and he likes them too:) The amount of good characters in these movies came as a surprise on me - there are so many that I like. Still I think my favourite has to be Vidia, because she’s quite relatable - she can seem harsh and unfriendly, and she sometimes is, but there is more to her than just that. I also like Fawn, and Tinkerbell of course.
10. Monsters Inc./Monsters University, Randall Boggs
Do I need to explain why?
He’s mean, he’s hilarious, he has the coolest design… It would have been impossible to come up with a better villain for Monsters Inc.
Randall is a great character, and I would really love to see more of him and his personal life than what we’ve seen in the two movies. Being curious about that made me write an 80 000 word fanfic about him four years ago (has it really been that long???), which led to me joining tumblr, which led to me meeting Ranty whom I currently live with and am really, really happy with:) Thanks, Randall and thanks, Pixar!
I couldn’t pick just one favourite character from the following fandoms: The Simpsons, Ice Age and Harry Potter.
