Hmm, My favorite would have to be Fate-chan,I adore her, she is the definition of epic! But Nanoha-chan has got a voice that just makes my insides quiver, so she comes in at an extremly close second, plus she is just so bad ass. And in third place is Nanoha's parents, I like them a lot for some reason....

Favorite character huh?

Well, even though I do say MORE HAYATE occasionally, what (or rather who) I really love in the series is Precia Testarossa.

...Please don't give me that look. I'm not kidding though, Precia is deliciously evil and I love it. (Especially since it's because of a 'good' idea gone horribly, horribly wrong.)

Precia's probably one of the main reasons why I watch the show. In the first season to see what happens and all of the other ones waiting for her return (unless she pulls a Mima or something, I refuse to believe that's she is dead until she is properly killed!)

I mean, when I first started watching I didn't exactly have high hopes for the show (it actually reminded me of Cardcaptor Sakura. Little Japanese girl falls into magical shenanigans and gets help from a yellow animal to get powers and collect magical thingies that cause trouble. And the first one we see is a rabbit that jumps around a lot. And the two are almost happy to a fault. Also, becomes friends with rival who is serious all of the time.)

It wasn't until the whole whipping thing started that I sat up and thought "Holy shit, that's f##king hardcore evil!" and that was around the time I stopped writing Fate off as a damn emo character since her life is kinda...harsh. To me the show picked up considerably after that.

When she crushes Fate by revealing that she's a clone... Yeah, that was pretty rough. And so deliciously evil. She presents her Freudian excuse all anime characters that don't smile all the time seem to have but she uses it as a giant F U instead of trying to win sympathy. That's pretty cool in my book.

Somehow I feel like I'm going to piss a lot of people off with this (Gee, I wonder why Natus?) but it's the truth. Precia all the way!

...

I'm really hoping she's in the upcoming GOD game as well!

Well I have to agree with you on Precia. Although she is not on of my favorite characters, if she wasnt in the show I proable whould have stopped watching it. I was starting to lose intrest around the time she came into the show and when they showed her wipping Fate-chan, I was like whoa O_O. Then I stuck round to see what was up with that psyco bitch with the whip.
They really dont know if she is dead, I mean it's not like they have her lifless body as evidence. It would be cool if they did a fourth season where she returned and teamed up with Jail to countinue project F (And actually try to revive Alicia, instead of making another Fate-chan.) because Al Hazard was not what it was cracked up to be.

Well on the flip side of this discussion, I'd say my favorite villain is Jail, hands down. While Precia was undeniably evil, she was never very threatening. In the grand scheme of things, she was nothing more than an insane mother trying to revive her dead child. The only reason she had such an effect was because of what she did to Fate. Plus, she is ultimately more of a tragic figure (see the Movie).

Now Jail on the other hand, was a fun villain. Here was a guy who was evil and loving ever minute of it. A true Mad Scientist. And he was a legitimate threat, what with the Numbers and later the Saints Cradle. Plus he had a pretty good evil laugh to boot.

Oh, and if you're looking for some closure on the Precia issue, check out the 'Thunderbird' doujinshi. Sure it's not canon, but it's as good as anything. Plus it has probably the best 'White Devil' Nanoha ever.

I hate Precia. I simply can't get over what she did to Fate. And no back story from the movie has changed that opinion. >.>

On the other hand,I love drama and angst, so while I hate Precia for what she did...her actions did make me enjoy the series more. Nothing pulls on my heartstrings more than watching an angsting loli be mercilessly whipped by her own mother.

Whipping makes everything better! (wait...)

I was kinda disappointed that Precia did jack-all in the end. I mean, she did that purple lightning thing that smacked the Arthra and Fate around... I was seriously hoping for some kind of giant showdown but it was like 'whoops I tripped' and I was a mixture of 0_0 and =_= (emoticons explain things so well sometimes!)

I'm always hoping that someday, somewhere Precia will come back and then the shit will hit the fan.

I'm really hoping she's in the next game. I mean, from I remember Precia fell into some Imaginary Space and it's some inter-dimensional void or something. With all the time/space stuff going on in GOD, maybe she'll pop out? Or maybe since we're seeing future people run around maybe a past Precia will appear?

Favorite character huh? That a really tough one I'll throw in my two cents here with my top three favorite character. The question didn't say we were limited to one xD

well the one on the top of my list would have to be cute Vivio. After all she did create the Nanoha mama we all know and love right. Plus I finding it amusing how she becoming more like her mother as time goes on. Seriously I would start a gambling pool on her becoming the next White Devil, but knowing Hayate she probably has it all covered. Not only that but Vivio has a variety of options for befriending people from the trade mark bombardamnet attack of her mother, to just plain down good old fashion fistcuff fighting.

Number two spot goes to Nanoha of course. I mean she literally a magical cannon armament which in my book is pretty hardcore. Her befriending Fate in season 1 with superior fire power was just plain awesome, but also tanking Fate best spell before launching her own was pretty sweet. I was just thinking how the fuck can you take all that and not have a scratch on you? O.o Plus let not forget the famous Divine Buster scene in the cradle during strikerS. If you can shoot into lowest level of a gaint warship of gigatic proportion. From the throne room level which is somewhere in my opinion on the top deck then your the embodiment of epicness, and are on the road to approaching god tier level of power. All in all I admire Nanoha the White Devil of the TSA and her signiture device Raising Heart. I just hope she doesn't cripple herself from abusing her awesome power and new tech that she experiment with.

Third goes to General Yagami Hayate the fun loving cosplaying commander of RFVI. Seriously I think StrikersS wasted the potential of a very good character. Since Hayate had lot of room for development for being part of the main cast. I mean she ranked SS as a mage, but Strikers just ruin all that potential and ideas for crappy explanation of why she isn't literlly a tatical one man army. Serious what would be more scary than facing a SS mage that has a various of spell that can quite simply put Nuke your sorry cacass, along with her four guardian Knights who are completely devouted to her? With odds like that you better pray your death is quick or start running as fast as you can. The one things that could be worse than this would being facing the White Devil herself, or god forbid all of them at once. If that happens then your screwed no matter where you run or hide. Overall Hayate is my third favorite having a lot of potential that the writers either didn't use or are to lazy to put effort in giving depth.

Few my rant is done but there you have it my top 3 favorite character in the whole nanoha series.

I positively adore Fate. The only character more adorable than her is Taiga from Toradora, who I have embraced my computer monitor for. So... yeah. :P I have a weakness for the cute ones.

Hmm,,, am torn between the Aces... but i guess if i have to pick only one, i'll choose Fate. I admire how she wields the Zanber form and how stylish her barrier armors are. her personality is cute too :)

Somehow, Baka Survivor Returns just pushed up the Materials all the way to the top of my faves list. (With Raijin at the top, followed by Seikou and Load. Man I love that name, she's the only Material where I use her GOD name more than her BOA name. It just cracks me up. Load. Load. Load the arc! WHOOSH! Then again, Stern is also pretty funny since Seikou acts so... stern XD)

Sorry Precia, you've been out-ranked.

Eh? Hey now, don't gimme that look purple girl. You're lucky that SOMEONE likes you. Back into the rainbow dimension gap you go.

Is it wrong of me that I was thinking more along the lines of "Blow. Blow. Blow your Load!" *_*

I've probably posted my favorite character here before, but it never hurts to reconfirm...Fate! If there ever was a character that coincides with my preferences so perfectly, then Fate is her name. She is just so beautiful as a character. Tragic past, lonely childhood, unconventional upbringing and subsequent alienation from peers, a huge amount of sheer raw magical power, and an enduring and undeniable infatuation with Nanoha. She's someone that has been through so much, and yet always comes out a better person because of it. And to top it all off, she is absolutely gorgeous as an adult, and adorable as a loli. The Crème de la Crème of moe.

It is really a hard decision...I'd say...
Vita! She's one hell of a determinator, right to the point (in battle AND social tact~!) and pretty badass all around...then again, most of the characters in Nanoha are badasses on multiple levels.

Followed quite closely by Signum,who is pretty much the picture perfect example of a traditional knight. Stoic leader with an even head and GREAT skill in battle.

Spoiler:
Up until she took a crushing defeat in FORCE, which I am still sore about since she was definitely one of the most powerful warriors in the entire series. I think a little part of me died inside.

aaand of course Fate, who has the coolest barrier jackets in my opinion. She has a tragic past that she came to accept rather than dwelling and brooding like some characters tend to do. I'm just sad that she shifted from scythes to sabers.

Indecisive? I am indeed.

She was truly hurt. I'd say after all I find her innocent.

ummm, I don't mean to sound disrespectful, Ms. Precia but... does this qualify you as "narcissistic"? XD

NanoFate fans please don't send me hate mail... I promise to turn back into a ferret and leave Nanoha (and her waifu) alone XD

Your name on NanoFate.us is "Precia" and you went on about how pitiable Precia is. Comprende?

I wasn't suppose to answer you but ok. If you really believe in your words I'am truly confused. Because it means that 90% of this forum users are narrcissisitic. Nanoha will write she likes nanoha, fate - fate, this is that obvious that I was really wondering about the meaning of this post. silly.

You're taking what he said too literally. He was joking that you were the series Precia (and not only a poster with her name) and because you went on about how sad and poor you were, he said you were being narcissistic...Since you were talking about yourself.
