Clives a fan favorite. No surprise there.

Hell, why did I just vote for Jeane?! Damn charm orbs...

I'd rather say S1/S2 is a fan favourite. S2 earthly stars (or better: irrelevant characters) are easily beating heavenly stars (or better: main characters) from 3-5!

Yep, I can't think of a single way how Tai Ho or Camus are superior to Caesar or Elenor. I mean I like Tai Ho, he is a gambler, he's driving a boat, he likes to drink.. and that's his character. A whole subplot of III is dedicated to Caesar, how he's trying to become a strategist, his strife with his brother etc. Same with Elenor - ok, IV characters are a bit more flat than in other titles, but Camus is a knight and he's blond. That's all there is to him. He apologizes to Nanami because his lord was mean. End of the story.

Many of these votes go beyond me, but oh well, if people really want Pesmerga to be the most popular character, go for it. I really loved what he did in the games, i.e. being in a random place, wearing a black armour and, eh, I guess there must be something else.

removing s2 characters from this poll would've made it a lot more exciting :p

It is frustrating that a game series with an already small fanbase has so many fans who don't actually know how to appreciate Suikoden's strengths. I mean the selling points of any Suikoden game are surely the big emotional scenes where there is a betrayal or a dramatic death of an important figure or true runes going crazy and causing havoc (sometimes all three of these things happening at once) and what is it that seems to be drawing these fans? Pesmerga in his black armor.

I discovered this awesome and --so far-- uncannily accurate website that decides how trashy a name is. Here are the results of a few of my queries: https://en.shindanmaker.com/604336
Killey: get out of my sight
Pesmerga: 80% trash
Rowd: 100% trash
Riou: Not trash at all
A raw tomato for the win!

Wolkendrache: 0% trash
Antimatzist: 50/50 trash
NashLatkje: 90% trash
Roshambeaux: 100% trash
:lol:

To be fair, none of our real names were used, so neener neener neener! :lol:

Summary of a Suikoden fanfiction or the latest poll?

I originally voted Lino against Flik, but I voted Flik against Sierra because she's a cunt.

I'm surprised Humphrey is proving to be popular, but that's probably mainly because of his combat stats rather than his personal story.
