Classhole is mine.
Any other favourites, anyone disagree, any other big classhole fans here?

Spirit.

Cannot easily distinguish between most characters. Might only appear in this one good comic, or in thirty additional uninteresting ones. Lacks that necessary information. Did not feel strongly about the recognizable XKCD characters. Considered both Calvin and Hobbes. Ruled them out, however. Asked "Favorite XKCD Character", not "Favorite Character in XKCD". Narrowed down the options considerably. Nearly selected a kitty. Chose Spirit based upon strength of characterization. Felt a level higher than any seen in kitties, turtles, squirrels, sharks, slime molds, woodpeckers, and other artificial intelligences.

Deva is my favorite message board robot.

I think my favorite is BHG's girlfriend. I love when they're together. I love that she stole his hat. That was the first time I even noticed he had one.

White beret fellow. I like the open heart. It's charming in that kind of "so happily stupid and yet so profound" kind of way.

Plus, you have to admire a man with a healthy love of Bakeries. Baked goods rock. Dangit, now I want a croissant. I second the White Beret guy.

For an original vote, I pick the eee pc in a hamster ball.

Beret guy is cool. Black Hat Guy and his girlfriend (Was she ever shown beyond the hat theft series?) are tied for second.

I think that beret guy wins. That may, however, be because I'm hungry right now and I associate him with bakeries. Class - hole most certainly wins for second, with his girlfriend as a close third.

Mrs Roberts is my favourite. As well as featuring in the "1337" series, I suspect that her son is Bobby Tables.

But I have to give a special mention to Rock Man.

When you say "Classhole" do you mean Blackhat? because if it is, then he is DEFINITELY my favorite character. No words to describe him other than a complete CLASSHOLE.

I swallowed a bug again.

Hat Thief pops up now and again, usually with Black Hat Guy. Don't think I can post links yet, but she's in things like Experiment (669) and Pickup Artist (1027). They still seem to be getting on, and not doing anything to destroy the universe yet.

...and while my favourite character shifts depending on how I feel, Hat Thief is definitely among them. That whole "I'm better at it than you" line from Journal 2 kind of sums up how I have to live my professional life.

Another vote for Beret guy. I have a theory that he's the only character who has realised he is living in a comic, which is how he can do the things that he does, and why he's so confused that other people can't (he doesn't realise that the others don't know they are living in a comic).

BHG just has to win.

But Beret Guy is so close. Beret guy is crazy.

Beret Guy. Not only is he naively innocent, but he has the karma to go with it.

Straw Hat Guy. He has somewhat controversial opinions and beliefs (some of which I agree with) and he is nice enough to still be friends with Cueball, even though Cueball is constantly making fun of his opinions and beliefs. And Cueball sees this, and still hangs out with him - even if he doesn't respect his opinions, he still respects him as a person.
