Having Area2D for main character.

I'm using Area2D.position for moving.

Is this proper way?
Are Area2D s supposed to be moved?

Update:
As it can be seen here
https://godotengine.org/qa/46636/choosing-wisely-types-for-my-objects
that's why i have chosen Area2D for main character.

You should use a KinematicBody2D.
Area2D should not be used for a character.

Yes it's ok to do so.
That's how it is done in the "my first game tutorial" https://docs.godotengine.org/en/3.1/getting_started/step_by_step/your_first_game.html
(KinematicBody2D is more advanced (thus more complex) but is NOT mandatory)
