ok so i'm flippin through the channels and inuyasha comes on, and for some unknown reason i actually let that crap stay on.... now my question is what the hell is the point of shippo?! he can't do anything. he can't fight, he's not a diplomat, he doesn't have any useful abilities... so why do these losers even keep him around?

that brings me to my point.... there are so many characters in anime that are there simply as a plot device, and sometimes not even that. so who do you think are the most useless characters of all time?

NOTE: JUST BECAUSE YOU HATE THEM DOESN'T MAKE THEM USELESS, YOU HAVE TO PROVE IT!!!!

my useless character list:

- any human dragonball character after the originai DB...come on there's nobody they can even match in power after DB, hell they got masacred by the sabamen and that punk nappa
- ein from bebop...seriously why do they need a dog?! its not even a bloodhoud!!
- the boyking from final fantasy unlimited...like the white swordsman unlimited couldn't just kill him in a second and hunt down kaze by himself.
- WINRY!!!! oh so you say she's ed mechanic... PINAKO!! ed loves her? PROVE IT!!!
- mihoshi from tenshi muyo... though she is my favorite uselss character of all time, i really don't see the point in her character being in the series
- anyone from sailor moon... any superhero that need five mins to transform is useless.

there are many others... but i don't feel like typing that much right now, so i'll add more later

As someone who used to watch Inuyasha religiously Shippo does have some skills. He can use demon magic to, basically play tricks and confuse the enemy. Ok, it's not like Maroku's wind tunnel but at least he has some skills.

I don't think Winry is useless, she is a good mechanic and she is also family to Ed and Al. She also lost her parents so they share that bond as well. True, Hoeinheim is still running around but for all the love and support he's given Ed and Al over the years he might as well be dead. She may not be an ace alchemist but she has her place in the story and so she is not a worthless character in my book.

As for useless I would have to go with Wrath for right now. His best skill is whining. Ok, so he did take out one if his allies but could he have done that without opportunity presenting itself? No.

Yeah so he can fuse himself with things, whoopie. The best thing he could do is whine and cry and prance around in his hotpants like some pedophiles dream. I don't recall him kicking anyones ass in FMA.

Right off the top of my head he would be my top most worthless character. If I think of more I'll update this post.

EDIT: Now that I think about it Sloth was pretty worthless herself. She was only there as a plot device she never actually did anything but turn Wrath into a whiny mommas boy.

Tea Gardner - Yugioh
She is comepletely and utterly useless! Besides that Yugi kinda likes her dry.gif She can't duel for a rat's ass and she is so damned whiney

Johny Tightlips XD He doesn't say anything so what is the use of having him as a mobster tongue.gif

Yuffie FF7- She has absolutely no material to add to the story really. They could have easilly have left her out of Advent Children and have a great film.

The Trainmaster (Matrix Revolutions) My god this movie sucked monkey ass holes... but that aside he really didn't serve any good purpose. He was just supposed to provide an optional way for Neo to escape... I don't even think Neo does use the train *forgets*

Mouse (Matrix) He was cool but didn't do a thing really... besides make the woman in the red dress program tongue.gif

Hmm... maybe I oughta avoid this topic. My favorites are probably all going to get bashed...

Naw.

Anyhow, the useless lame-o losahs aaarrrre:

Sasuke, Naruto- Yeah, he's great to add tension between he and Naruto... for a few episodes. After a while, it's just like, Get the heck over it, you whiny SOB!

Sakura, Naruto- See above, only without any madd skills. (I'm told she gets cooler in recent chapters of the manga, but I don't like the series enough to stick around that long, and she's already taken her sweet time anyhow.)

Kozue, Revolutionary girl Utena- Well, she might not be totally useless... *checks* nope, I was right, she's useless. All she does is make Miki suffer for crap he couldn't control, and making him neurotic, and while it's an important theme for him to bear, I really wouldn't mind if she just sorta... fell off a cliff or something.

Yui, Fushigi Yuugi- dry.gif ....

(I know I'm gonna get killed, but... I LOVE WINRY AND WRATH! HAW!)

That is all.

O.O Hito, I am disappointed in you sleep.gif I thought you and Bacon would know Johny Tightlips from the Simpsons tongue.gif

Yes, Johny and the Matrix ones are technically not anime but Matrix is kinda anime-ic and Simpsons is animated at least. Yuffie is kinda anime, just in video game form.

Fine Full Out Anime Characters dry.gif:
Poo from Yu Yu... It is utterly useless! That ugly fuzz ball has got to go... and if it does have some kind of significance in the show later you better keep it to yourself

Lyn from BeBop (Episodes Jupiter Jazz Pts. 1and2) All he did was take the hit for Vicious... that is basically it besides he is the Red Dragon's biatch.

One of the Funnier ones E.G. Mine tongue.gif He got killed by Raide *can't spell* the Blade. All EG Mine did was kill Dominique who isn't very hard if you can break her Demon Eye spell and Monev the Gaile Who is just a brute. EG Mine was useless but pretty funny tongue.gif

I can't really think of any at the moment... but...

Random lazy black cat from Trigun. It's there for amusement. It's funny, but useless. *yawn*

Caine the Longshot, from Trigun. In the anime, all he did was shoot giant bullets at Vash, then commit suicide. (No lines either) What a waste of a Gung Ho Gun. You'd think they'd do more with him. Least most of the others got some attention.

@Slash: It's Rai Dei the Blade. Nighttow goes into a bit of detail of the hell he went through in Trigun Maximum. I thought it was funny thought that Vash bested Rai's finisher with something really simple. You should get into it.

I don't get mangas because.... They don't sell them anywhere where I live -__- If someone could PM me with a source though... Btw, thanks for correcting my spelling error.

To stay on subject:

That Girl's Dad from Detective Conan XD He couldn't solve a case if Conan flashed the answer in bright neon red lights XD

Toby-Chan we must talk. Sakura is the so annoying all she does is talk about how she loves Sasuke, Sasuke this blah,blah. BLAH! Shut up women. She took her sweet time to start training. -______- Still.... she'll have to have an intense battle for me to like her.

Yes , Sasuke is very whiny angst.

while do hate both the character and the series, the dad IS necessary he's the only reason people listen to that little punkass kid. though i still don't understand why anyone would drug someone to make them a kid, when they could just kill them.... one of the many various reasons i hate that show.

I think the most useless is Toki from the Samuria X movie (the one that takes place after the Rurouni Kenshin t.v. series). All she did was cry dry.gif

toki? who? do you mean tomoe? and aren't the samurai x movies set in the bakumatsu period, thus making it BEFORE the series?
