Hmm.. While I do like almost everybody, my favourites would have to be Hinata, Sakura, Ino, Haku, Neji, and Kiba. ♥
Shikamaru, Sasuke, Neji, Naruto, Sakura, and Ino..Kakashi too!!
Edit: 1. Naruto 2. Shikamaru 3. Sasuke
"Like" is not enough for me so...:
Naruto is my hype, he can really make my day because he is so emotional and motivated and because of his nindo...
Neji is the calm force I've always aspired to (and always ended up being a mix of Shikamaru and Naruto I guess ) His fighting style is also the one I aspired to, though ended up with Tae-Kwon-Do (went from yang to yin).
Lee can be my greatest motivator at times... that kid never gives up and can always do one more push up, run another mile, study for one more hour, gain one more level... etc. etc.
Gaara is someone who has been alone. Before going to Kavala I was alone too, there though I met so many people and made so many friends... (though when the masks fall who is a social contact and who a friend is a totally different story for all of us I guess... - . - )
Shikamaru will be sitting around looking at the clouds or something else, he'll be thinking for hours and he had his future planned from high school... he is so much like what I used to be in certain parts of his personality (and still is on others).
Shino is yet another calm force, yet in a more instructive way than Neji, I hope he lives to be a great teacher some day...
Absolute favorite... I don't have any! I could never pick between Naruto and Neji!
Dont mess with adults.........
I cant lose ...... because........I am a.....genius.
I am an avenger.......I must obtain power no matter what........
Hate me, detest me and live in the insightly way..........
Naruto, Sasuke, and Itachi, of course. ;D
Itachi and yondaime are my top favourites! why? coz they're cool you know....and coolness rawks!
My favorite characters are Itachi *of course* , Gaara and naruto
w/o a doubt Gaara is my favorite!
Neji & Shino are close behind him!
i like shino but why we can not see him a lot!!!!! :'(
i also like hatake kakashi---->6th hokage
and shikamaru's ideas about girls
Tied for 1st: Zetsu and Gaara
Tied for 2nd: Deidara and Sasori
Naruto, plain and simple.
All too frequently today we hav to deal with some bad-guy turned semi hero... the quintesential anti hero.
Naruto is nothing like that. He's sunshine to Sasuke's rain and drear.
Naruto's world may be a semi dark one.. but he can even redeem a character like the old Demon of the Mist s Zabuza.
That's saying a lot.
Beyond him... I'd say I like Sakura ...she's the archytipical manga girl.. the one that abuses the hero, but ends up growing up along the way and marrying him in the end... sorta like Naru Narusegawa from Love Hina. Definately Jiraiya and Tsunade... My bet is for them to end up married before the end of the Manga... If you've read the tales of Jiraiya... you'll also know that this is likely what will happen at some point.
Next is Gai... How can you not like him... he's just so freaking out there. (The less said about his relationship with Lee however.. the better) ;;
Well said Ifuritas!! Naruto's influencial character can even influence fans
Lee can be inspiring too through his rock hard determinaton!!
Generally though all characters of the manga are great and what's even greater is Kishimoto's ability to create such diverse characters (really each one is uniqe in their own way). Props to Kishimoto for a vast array of great and inspiring characters
ASUMA, Forever. He is hot, and he fucking SMOKE, then.. Genma, Hayate, Raidou, Nidaime, freaking good looking Armor!.. Hayate, and Haku+Zabusa.

If it seems clear that you like some characters over others that you've mentioned, I've put these characters in bold.
If it's not clear and you've put down more than just three names, then none are put in bold... and you really ought to come back and try to narrow down your absolute favorites to at least three. ;-)
