By the way, sorry I didn't put any other options, I could only put 10 and I thought it would be silly to add just 4 random people

Honestly, it's going to come between Laharl and Valvatorez overall. I mean, the others have their fans but those two have gotten the most overall praise.

I think the main thing is whether you prefer Laharl's character arc or Valvatorez's personality and general hammy-ness.

I honestly couldn't decide between the two characters, so I went totally meta and voted for the one voiced by Troy Baker, who's pretty much my favorite VA ever. (Valvatorez, by the way).

I'm literally amazed at how wrong a person can be. It's seriously blowing my mind, like I've totally lost all faith in humanity because of this post. Holy hell.

Valvatorez > Mao > Laharl > Adell.

Reasoning:
Valvatorez: Well, aside from how his Japanese voice makes me consider turning gay, the guy is also really freaking badass while still having a fair share of funny quirks (thinking less of his sardine-obsession and more of how insanely gullible he is here, though), plus maintaining a pretty good balance between being a bloodthirsty demon lord, and still being a nice guy.
Mao: Is completely and utterly insane. Also Vic Mignogna's performance is just comedy gold.
Laharl: Don't get me wrong, he's still a pretty great character. I just find Val and Mao more entertaining.
Adell: Always struck me as being way too "Generic Shounen Anime Hero"-esque, really... There just wasn't anything about him that actually stood out to me.

Okay, we get it. You don't like Mao. Okay, I understand, and you make very valid points about him never changing and having little to no character development. You've made your feeling about D3 very clear on several occasions. Here's the thing.

There is more to liking a character than simply being well-developed. The fact of the matter is; Mao is entertaining. He makes us laugh. He is different from Laharl in that he doesn't change much. In my opinion, Mao represents what Laharl might've become if not for Flonne. He basically embodies everything that was wrong with Laharl as a person and multiplies it 10. His sheer sociopathic tendencies are hilarious.

Adell on the other hand, is very much the same bland, generic shonen action hero we've all seen a million times over. If you really think about it, D2 was much more about Rozalin. He was just... there to do hot-blooded shonen hero stuff. Comically oversized necktie aside, even his character design is uninspired and bland.

I've always said that I consider D2 to be the least memorable. And that is largely due to how utterly forgettable Adell is as a character. Say what you want about Mao, but damn, he left an impression.

Also, on a similar note. How about everybody's favorite main villains? Vulcanus, Zenon, Aurum and Nemo?
If I had to arrange them to my preference... probably Aurum>Nemo>Zenon>Vulcanus.

My only issue with Aurum is that I still don't understand what brainwashing the freshmen class to be delinquents would accomplish...
