Introduction

When it comes to the worst Code Geass characters most people think of either Nina or Suzaku and even Rolo. Heck, I even saw Shirley’s name come up.

To be fair I can see the argument for them. But I don’t hate any of them. And I am not going to discuss why in this article. That’s a topic for another time. I only bring this up because this article will go through the Code Geass characters that I cannot stand the most.

And in my opinion, are the worst characters in the series.

Worst means that I could not stand them or what the characters contribute to the plot or lack thereof.

To challenge myself, not only is Nina nor Suzaku number 1 and 2 on this list but they are not even on it. So, expect some surprises in this one.

I am only going to reference the original series and the new recap films plus Lelouch of the Re;surrection.

And as always keep in mind this is just my opinion and I am sure most will not agree.

After reading please give me your list and argue against my picks. I have been wrong before and I will be again.

Also spoiler warning.

With that out of the way let’s go over Ten Worst Characters in Code Geass.

Worst Code Geass Character #10 Milly Ashford

This is one is going to be a matter of preference. Milly represents all of the Pseudo Ecchi high school fanservice that happens in Code Geass.

Plus all the annoying filler stuff that happens at Ashford.

Take her out and most of that is gone from the series. There is still fan service but you don’t get it from the high school parts of the series.

I can’t stand the fan service in Code Geass especially what happens at Ashford.

I am talking about the school festivals, school events, and how she interacts with everyone. She approved and provided funding for the Fantasy Seduction Club.

Why would anyone approve of that club?

Milly must be bi and no that’s not against anyone who is or her for that matter. But it seems like that’s all Milly thinks about when she sees women. She gives this away when she talks to Shirley in Stage 2 and compliment her body. There are other examples of some of them in the picture dramas.

But beyond that as a character, there is not much there either. Sure she struggles with graduation, arranged marriages, and her family’s royal status.

But all these take a back seat to her Milly’s assets. I have heard the argument that you can’t take Kallen seriously because of the fan service. But Milly actually has the stronger case.

Why?

Because at least with Kallen in the serious moments for the character you do not get any fanservice, with Milly it’s the opposite.

For example in Turn 12 Milly is naked in the shower and thinking about graduation. This is a great setup and realistic.

  1. Because people do tend to think about stuff while showering
  2. And as a character, Milly is thinking about growing up and moving on in life which is scary for teenagers.

But here is the problem they show you a close-up of her breasts as she folds her arms. It takes you out of the moment. All they had to do was just show her face.

Imagine if Kallen was wearing a bikini when she talks to her mother at the end of Stage 9. It would also distract you from the moment. But you do not get that kind of stuff for Kallen’s serious moments.

I wish they did the same for Milly. But it’s not all bad.

The only reason why she’s low on the list is that once she graduates she is no longer ruining the plot with the fan service stuff at Ashford. She goes to a more supportive role and does mature as a character.

Plus she is quite useful as a reporter.

It’s not worth the wait of 37 episodes for this. If you love fanservice then you probably love this character. If you take away her obvious fan service design and the fan service she forces in the plot, then I do not hate her.

She is actually a nice person and helped out Lelouch. But I can’t stand the fan service.

Worst Code Geass Character #9 Viletta Nu

This character had so much potential. Villetta is a competent KMF pilot and very intelligent with her detective skills. She figured out that Zero was a student and narrowed it to Lelouch.

But after that, it goes downhill from there. Shirley shoots her at the pier which causes a somewhat plot contrived memory loss. And during her memory loss, she acts like a housewife to Ohgi.

Villetta gets her memories back around the same time that Suzaku captured Lelouch making her knowledge of Zero pointless.

But it’s really in R2 where I started to no longer respect the character. Lelouch successfully tricks Villetta with blackmail to help him.

Before this Villetta was part of the team watching Lelouch to make sure he does not regain his memories and to find C.C.

How did someone this smart get outsmarted by Lelouch? Or how did she not find a way to betray Lelouch?

Once this happens Villetta is pretty much useless in the story. Her only major plot relevance afterward was explaining to Ohgi about Lelouch’s Geass, marrying him, and having his child.

This romance is actually explored and reference throughout the series. It’s frustrating because Villetta transformed from a woman with goals and ambitions to Ohgi’s girlfriend.

Ohgi did become Prime Minister and one of Villetta’s goals was to go up in rank. So this does follow her character but she wanted to earn the title not marry into it.

But as Cornelia said rank isn’t everything.

She is only nine on this list because at least I did not mind her but the plot for some reason did.

And of course, we have two scenes of her involving fan service. At least one was actually plot-relevant but that’s another topic for another time.

Fun fact we only see two naked busts in Code Geas. Kallen in Stage 19 and Villetta in Stage 15.
