Accelerator is a villain in the Railgun and Index series, who later becomes more of an anti-hero type of character with different morals, values, and perspectives because of his harsh upbringing.
Not to mention growing up with an unnatural amount of power at his disposal.
He sees adults as manipulative because that’s how they’ve always treated him, like a weapon they can use and manipulate for their gain.
He doesn’t trust many people and understands how people work (the darker side) and this reflects in his anime quotes from Index, Railgun, and A Certain Scientific Accelerator.
Here’s a list!
“I’m too naive. With thoughts like “If I saved someone maybe I can start all over again.” – Accelerator
“Listen, even if someone is suffering before you, the kind of person that can take up arms without hesitation to shoot down the villain is no better than a villain himself. The kind that doesn’t care about others, doesn’t give 2nd chances; someone that kills if given a reason, is definitely not a hero. You don’t have to become that kind of person. That’s my specialty. Only I have to go through that.” – Accelerator
“The worst part about being strong is that no one ever asks if you’re ok.” – Accelerator
“They may all look the same to you, but there are different kinds and different levels of evil. A first-class villain doesn’t target honest lives.” – Accelerator
“I have no interest in being a villain, and I don’t think that I can become a good person. I’m at a halfway point where I’m not even sure which path I should walk down… but I guess even there, I can still interfere in someone’s life and help bring things to a positive conclusion.” – Accelerator
“The second humans lose their comfort zone, the more simplistic their actions become.” – Accelerator
“I strive for something beyond the strongest, that challenging me would be the most ridiculous thought ever, that fighting me would be a sin!” – Accelerator
“Listen up, kid. There’s one thing you need to understand. Human life is a fragile thing. So weak that I can destroy it with a touch of my finger. So watch what you say. If you don’t, I may break something I shouldn’t.” – Accelerator
“Just because I’ve gotten weaker, it doesn’t mean that you’ve gotten stronger, right?” – Accelerator
