Well, I mean a character can look good but I'd get reeled in just seeing how they develop over the years *how their current design looks now versus a year ago*

the personality is a bonus :)

I did tend towards "True in some cases", but then I realized that the question is not, in fact, synonymous to "Are characters with a strong/developed story and interesting personality more memorable than those who don't?" but more like "Would a character be more memorable if they have a strong/developed story and interesting personality?", which is a definite "YES!!"

Sometimes, but I'm more likely to remember a character that I see a lot or who has a unique visual design. I often don't care about backstory.

Pretty true too ovo I don't remember a character just by appearance that well but if they're design is like eye candy, I'll surely recognize them whenever they're drawn XD

So true! I love trying to create stories for each of my characters. Though I think Luna the character with the most developed story that I have yet to make into a comic ;w;

A character I adore is Sho Minamimoto from The World Ends With you-- he has little backstory stated in game. Yet he's one of the most memorable and loved characters in the whole thing because of point B, an interesting personality.

That's why I specified "strong" story, meaning it's quite unique~
I hate cliches too but when I'm thinking up of stories I can't help but think "ew no wait, that's a cliche too" ksaldfjdsf >3>
I covered pretty much every type of story I can think of, I can't think of unique things anymore X'D
