Kirito

Kirito is one of 10,000 players trapped in the MMORPG known as Sword Art Online. He's recognized as a “Beater” to others for having restricted beta access before the death game started, and is harshly criticized for this unfair advantage. The skilled swordsman has condemned himself to a life of solitude as a result, and is determined to stay alive and reach Floor 100 to clear the game.

Though he refuses to join a guild and has made enemies along the way, Kirito also has gained several allies: Asuna, who he briefly partnered with, and Klein, a newbie player he helped train at the start of the game. Unlike the majority of Sword Art Online's players who only look out for themselves, Kirito lends a hand to those in need.

To me he will be a cheater and not a beater like the others said. He takes pride in what he is doing and also thinks he is the best at everything he does but this comes due to exploit mechanics of the game. You ask why i am so sure? Did you ever see him level in the entire first season?

I didn´t. Except a few times where he fights with friends.

To me he is a blender, cheater, good-for-nothing joke of a hero.

Meh I've seen better protagonists then him but he isn't that bad compared to Inaho kaizuka and Tatsuya shiba

They are definitely suitable to this show's narrative and dynamic, but they are bad characters from a critical standpoint. Kirito is overpowered, and he is very similar to many characters which came before him. Asuna is obsessed with Kirito, and people like to call this infatuation "love" when it is truly the opposite. She was intriguing at first, but she was quickly consumed by this, making her lose any unique traits she had. Kayaba was a terrible villain, as they barely expanded on his character and never described his motives fully. He had no other baggage besides his desire to dominate a self-cultivated world (for unexplained reasons), making his story fall flat. Therefore, with all respect, your statement is incorrect.

I like Kirito, Azuna, and Kaiba because of Something Witty Entertainment and they made these characters the best that they could be in any anime in my opinion.

Too overrated, boring and plain.
