    Default Maimed main characters!

    Maybe because I have too much free time, maybe because blood and guts are cool, maybe because recently most mangakas have stopped trying to be original, but I've been noticing a large amount of anime characters whom we shall refered to as "the disembodied", or cripples, freaks, parapalegics, half the men they once were, and (my personal favorite) stumpies.
    Is there a reason for this, surely I'm not the only one whose noticed?
    In any case, I figured I'd try and make it a game! See how many characters and titles you can mentions who have something thats "missing" from their bodies.
    I'll go first with one of the most obvious ones ever (since the whole story is hinged on that moment)
    Ed and Al from FMA (Ed's missing an arm and leg and Al... well lets just say Al is missing)
    I could name about four more off the top of my head, but why ruin it?
    Go out there! Search and be emersed with glee at finding a character whose arm just cut off, or had the leg ripped in two.
    Lotsa fun, lotsa limbs

    SESSHY. Well, aside from the fact that I'm one of the only Inuyasha fangirls who doesn't like him - come on, he spends volumes trying on new arms and having his body reject him. That's actually kind of cool. I don't know why, but it is.

    Kudou Ao. <3 He had his growing stolen. ^^;; Well... okay, that doesn't really count, but...

    ...the guy from Busou Renkin? Forgot his name. Him. Main guy.

    Aside from them, I can't think of any manga/anime characters who, well, are missing body parts. I guess Allen from D.Gray-Man could count, except he got his arm back so perhaps not. Most missing-body-parts things I read are from books.

    Well, that's four if you count two that aren't really examples but are shameless manga promotions. ^_^

    Gon from Hunter X Hunter - in GI Final he has his arm blown off, but then he does get it back.

    Do these have to be permamentally disabled? If so, there's that hunter that Lucifer used that fish thing on. That was a cool death.

    Make beer, not war.

    Well, he died. I guess that doesn't count, though.

    Does losing hair count? I can think of many, many characters who have lost extreme amounts of hair in a single scene, but does that count as "maiming"...

    Come to think of it... that's most of my favourite manga. NANA! <3

    Alucard from Hellsing.


    (Getting raped by a big fat Turkish sultan qualifies as "maiming" to me.)
