For you, what makes a character likable despite their flaws?

    They're cute.

    Likable as a character in fiction rather than someone I have to deal with? They have similar flaws to mine, or failing that, interesting ones. (Flaws I have interest me, but only out of narcissism.)
  • More serious answer: they have flaws but they try to deal with them and be a decent person rather than just being some out-and-out villain.
  • I can all but hear the chimes
    They are long and loud and slow
    "despite"
  • kill living beings

    hey. poisoning the municipal water system with nanomachines to turn everybody in Metropolis into sheep is a way to try to deal with your feelings of inadequacy as a farmer. It's just not very effective is all

    Hey, ain't nothing wrong with being a hyper-solipsistic serial killer/assassin who really likes trains!
  • you all have rather serious definitions of "flaws"
