List Rules Just because a character is a comic relief doesn't mean he or she is weak.

With all the fighting that goes on in shonen anime, it's sometimes refreshing to have a characters offer up some laughs. Who are the best comic relief characters in anime? It's a tough line to tow sometimes when going back and forth between drama and comedy. The funniest anime characters offer you just enough comedy where you can still take what's going on seriously. If a character has too many goofy lines during a serious scene, it can take you out of the moment. For example, Buggy the Clown gets a lot of screen time during the Marineford War Arc in One Piece, which can get annoying when there is so much serious stuff happening in the story.

Vote up the funny anime characters below that really make you laugh, but also aren't extremely annoying. Add your own comedic anime characters to the list too if they're not already here, and see how many other people think they're as funny as you do.
