MTV's Baddest Badass: Can We Skew the Voting?

MTV wants to know who the greatest badass is. We'd love to see it be an anime character!

Consider it the first step in my war on the world to take vengeance for “Otaku Week” and Speed Racer's Razzie if you'd like: MTV is taking nominations for the Greatest Badass on the big screen, and I say we should collectively agree to send in nominations to get an anime character on the shortlist. What say you, otaku brethren?


Of course, the first-- and hardest –part will be agreeing on one such badass, especially with the limitation of movie badasses...though at least that'll help us narrow it down. I mean, Alucard hasn't been in any movies, so he's out, right?


Here are a few of my suggestions for badass anime characters who have been in movies:

- D (Vampire Hunter D)

- Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop the Movie: Knockin' on Heaven's Door)

- Kamina (Gurren Lagann Crimson Edition movie)

- Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell)
- Saya (
Blood: The Last Vampire)


I wonder if we could include badasses who are going to be in a movie? Then maybe Dragon Ball Evolution could actually be worth a damn by letting us nominate Goku. (Okay, okay, there have been Dragon Ball films, but they're unlikely to have been seen/heard of by anyone outside of the fandom, unlike the flicks mentioned above.)


Anyway, if you like the idea of a Vice Squad vote-skew, throw your votes for one of the above four or a different character in the comments here and I'll proclaim a winner towards the end of tomorrow. (If not, you can vote individually here.)

Not only has Dante not appeared in any movies, but he's also oozes douchebag.

Can people vote for me?

If so, I'd probably win

I'm putting in a vote for Vampire Hunter D, and my sister is seconding my vote.
blackholehearton Jan. 6, 2009 at 7:46 p.m.
Who the f**k do you think I am?! Kamina is the only choice.
Slingeron Jan. 6, 2009 at 8:07 p.m.
So this is all time badass? Or do they have to be current?

Lol I nominated Spike, you know its about time regular movie goers see Anime's and what anime characters are like because there are tones of movies that are just straight rip offs. "Oh Matrix is so cool" Dude the Last fight was a crappy DBZ fight come on.

I've gotta give Major Motoko Kusanagi some love on here!

Guys, come on. If there's any guy on that list that stands a chance with the amount of douche that patrols MTV that will vote en masse for real people, it would be Kamina. Thus, I propose Kamina.
Zeouterlimitson Jan. 7, 2009 at 4:33 p.m.
I'd actually go with Spike.
   Which is kind of surprising. To me, I mean....

Huh, I guess I like Spike more. Seems a little more human I guess, a few chinks in the armour.

voted Kamina.

Revenge is now served.
