I would like to claim Yuki Judai, the main lead of the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters GX anime. I've always been decidedly fascinated with him, because unlike the other two leads of the franchise, he's a clean slate at the beginning -- he starts with apparently no brooding past to weigh him down and no unreasonable wishes, aside from doing what he likes and enjoying himself to the fullest extent in the process.

He has nothing to avenge or seek, reason why it's very fascinating to see him grow and develop over the course of the series, gaining a purpose for himself and his abilities, other than just simple, childish amusement. The fact that he suffers greatly and nearly loses his mind over the course of this journey is an extra bonus, as far as I'm concerned, since I love the deconstruction of heroes and the fact that they must face the harsh reality of sometimes becoming monsters in order to fulfill their noble goals.
