10 Male Characters Least Favorite

Another interesting article from mania.com. After the "9 Reasons Why Anime Is Superior to Western Animation" article, they made "10 Male Headaches Anime" article
You can read the full article in here
Here's the short article, am adding the interesting quotes ^^
10. Yagami Light (Death Note, Season Two)
He didn’t really do much of anything, in fact, did he even use the Death Note in the second season? He let so many people do the work for him that I can‘t recall a single moment where he used the notebook himself. That’s no fun at all!
9. Vegeta (DBZ)
8. Naruto (Naruto: Shippuden)
Something much worse than spoiled milk happened to Naruto’s health: Sasuke. Now don’t get us wrong, we didn’t expect him to take Sasuke’s departure lightly, but after reading a chapter where Naruto proudly(?!) proclaimed that even if Orochimaru ripped his body parts off he’d still find a way to drag Sasuke home… yeah, we can’t help but think that if Naruto were a girl we’d be calling him a psychopathic masochist.
7. Yugi (Yu-gi-oh)
No matter how much his impending defeat is built up, Yugi always comes from behind to win the game. He’s the champion, plain and simple, and we all know that champions are never beaten… at least in this universe.
6. Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon)
Let’s be honest. What is this guy good for? He jumps in, throws a rose, and… that’s about it. In the long run his only purpose is to give Sailor Moon the Phoenix Down she needs to get back up and Moon Tiara Magic a monster or two.... He's the character that needs to get beat up so the hero(ine) can open his(her) eyes and transform into something epic. He's a punching bag, but hey… he’s a punching bag who dresses better than your prom date.
5. Inuyasha (Inuyasha)
Just. Pick. A. Girl. Already. PLEASE!
4. Honorable mention: Ranma (Ranma ½)
3. Shindou Shuichi (Gravitation)
2. Cloud (Final Fantasy)

We don’t remember much of Final Fantasy 7 except for the obvious thing that everyone remembers: Aeris dies. And in case you forgot that she died Cloud will remind you. Every. Single. Time. You. See. Him. Cloud is the Eeyore of video games....
1. Chihaya (Earthian)
Angels are absolutely amazing creatures, aren’t they? And they’re even prettier when they’re the main focus of a yaoi anime… all right, that might just be my personal opinion. But if your name is Chihaya then you’re the wimpiest angel that has ever been created, doomed to spend four episodes being punched, knocked out, kidnapped, and abused.
