IMO, its Adell=Valvatorez >Laharl> Mao.

Adell is like a badass fight maniac. I really like him. Valvatorez is also a badass so I really feel like if you wanted to say Valvatorez was cooler than Adell, I could understand, even though i think theyre pretty equal. For Laharl, he's a badass too and he's funny but I like Adell and Valvatorez more. And for Mao, I never really liked him because i felt like he was a creepy nerd :/ I really cant relate to him at all and I dont like him as a main character.

You pretty much summed up everything I wanted to say.

If there's one thing this thread has taught me its that I never knew Mao was so poorly received.

I don't like him as much as Valvatorez or Laharl, but I always liked Mao. He's complicated. I liked the VERY personal connection he had with the villain and how much that fucked him up. Remember that the Mao we see is just his surface personality. I think Mao is more relatable if you've ever had a friend like that. That one jerk, who you hang out with but don't really know why. People set-up jerkass "facades" as a shield to help cope with trauma. In this case,
Spoiler:
the guilt over helping Super Hero Aurum kill his father.


Suppression is a real psychological tactic many people employ. And I never expected a Disgaea game to go that deep into a character's psyche. He didn't remember because it hurt to remember, so he forced himself to forget. This is also the reason why his personality goes up and down throughout the game, as different people keep messing with his heart.

His change is much much much more subtle than Laharl's. His moments of genuine kindness are rare, but I still picked up on them. From the top of my head I can think of a few....

Spoiler:
1. Complementing Beryl.
2. Recognizing Almaz as a real Hero.
3. Taking the full blast of the Prinny Bomb to save everyone. (I'm shocked how many people never notice this)
4. Grieving over Almaz's death. (in his own way)
5. Abandoning his plan on Destroying the Human World.
6. If you get the Super Hero Mao ending, he pretty much full-on forgives Aurum.
7. The Genuine Guilt he felt for betraying his Father.

I know there's more, but I'll have to add them back later, I'm not in a thinking mood right now.


It's subtle, but it's there. The only real criticism I have is that his story is a little too similar to Laharl's. But even then, that's not a huge complaint.

well my name gives away my fav disgaea char to be honest i saw Etna as a main character
but if i have to choose one it would be valvatorez
ill go into alittle bit of details why i see Etna as a main character she woke Laharl up plotted against him helped him become an overlord forced him to do stuff otherwise hed just be laughing on his throne and she has Etna mode which follows the anime ^_~


kicks a prinny at opening poster for not including Etna
DLC is just an excuse for devs to hold back content remember once something is on the internet they never forget and never forgive

I find it weird that Val is leading. I cant help but think a lot of his votes are from ps3 only owners. I vote Laharl 1, Mao 2, Adell 3. I dont particularly like that he is not even a demon like the other 3, isnt he a vampire.

Vampires are demons aren't they? I always thought so.

I'm going to have to go with Adell. There was something about a main character who doesn't use swords like all the others that just caught my attention. He fights with only his fists and has some pretty awesome skills (though fire based) to go with it. I use him whenever a game I play has him as DLC.

Alright, Just voted 4 laharl. Of the three disgaea games that I beat (if you include the prinny one), I Just liked laharl the most. I see why they made a spinoff game (disgaea infinite), a short run anime from his game
