Title says it all. I personally can like any one of them if I'm able to get into the show and the characters themselves but what are your favorites if you have one?

Genki Girls are one of mine. Those cute bundles of energy like Sapphire Birch from PokeSpe. I love 'em (not in THAT way but I find them adorable like a box of kittens).

Oh and Char Aznable. Nuff said.

Says the One Piece fan. Like isn't Luffy the archetypical shonen protagonist. A optimistic determinator who uses the power of friendship to win the day.

archetypes aren't necessarily stereotypes by the way
everyone in this thread excluding OP is confusing the two

Nope, I'm really not confusing anything.

Liking a character doesn't necessarily mean they like the archetype, especially considering that "done right" can be a very vague term.

I've found that my female feti....personality traits that I like tend to be towards the following (First two aren't archetypes, but i figure i put them in anyways since they act as a catch for most of the exceptions in archetype love):
Characters I admire
Characters that remind me of myself
Tsukkomi
Tricksters
Tsundere (emphasizing done right)
Yamato Nadesico
"My Pace"
Rei clones that have some emotion to them
Kouhai
Classmate
Senpai

Male-wise, it'd probably be something like....
Laid back heroes
Bros (Usually side characters that take the emotional support role)
Norio Wakamoto
Takehito Koyasu
Characters with the guts to actually choose/get the girl (Bonus if best girl wins as opposed to main girl wins)
Tsukkomi

And it goes without saying, but characters with a good amount of depth are always pretty high on my list.

Tsundere... :D Guess I'm mainstream with it, but tsundere are the sweetest archetype =D

@digi-kun: Shouldn't it be Yamato Nadeshiko?
