The Most Popular Characters at DeviantART

Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?

I liked danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.

Help Wanted, Reward Offered

Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points:points:. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points:points:. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point:points:. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.

Top 50 Popular Characters DeviantART

Popularity is subjective. It's more correct to say that this is a list of characters that appear in the most deviation titles or tag lists. That is a mouthful though, so I chose to call this Most Popular Characters instead. Characters who have names in common with other characters (Sakura, Mai) or objects (Ash, Cloud) will get a boost in this list. Naruto gets a boost due to being commonly used in deviant names. I started a Watchers Toplist a few months ago, so check that out too.  

Bonus DeviantART Popularity Search Battle

Just a fun game to play. Who do you think would win? The highest number wins. Click the links and find out. Submit some fun combinations in the comments and I'll add it to the list.

The only usable ones from this list are Him and Pops.

Not to bother you but if Him was usable then why did someone else get it? Unless they said it before me tho .3.

ok thanks

L was suggested already
the country names I won't take
Rose doesn't return enough of the character
Amy is ok though, I'l add it to the list.
ChromaticSkies Featured By Owner Edited Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm... the countries have human names too ^w^

They're probably often tagged with both but I'm not sure if the count is the same ;D but here they are (I don't use them but I'm pretty sure they are right):

Japan: Kiku or Honda Kiku 
France: Francis Bonnefoy 
America: Alfred Jones or Alfred F. Jones 

But most people use the country names so it will probably be less ^^;
