Top Ten Best Playstation Characters


The Top TenXW

1Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot was an original video game character, he was even ment to be the face of playstation and to compete with sonic(the face of sega), and mario(the face of nintendo). But now crash is not as popular and as good as he used to before crash of the titans came. So I think that crash is the the number one playstation character.

By far the most original character Sony has been involved with. Too bad his other publishers sent him into the downward spiral.

the first character I have ever played on a video game he's legendary - whatsitsname

Bar none the best. He was the first

2Solid Snake

It's a simple thing to say who the coolest looking is, or who instills the greater sense of nostalgia, that's not what this should be about, things like this should be determined on the depth and merit of the character as a whole, Solid Snake has character traits I could list all day but the one thing I always come back to is the indomitable will he possesses, as long as there was a villain to stop he would never give up trying to make a better world, even if it meant burning up every last second he had left in his body, he taught me as a young gamer that as long as you have a true dream no matter what the odds, no matter who or what stands in your way, even if all you have is the determination to keep fighting, nothing can stop you.

Well that's my 2 cents anyway.

snake is the character from the single best videogame series to ever be created. he starred in the defining game of the playstation's life and some of the best games on the PS2 and PS3. He deserves it.

Legend! That man lives on in our hearts. A leader and a man of the people. Snake was an emotional cripple but a man of substance. He never neglected his Call of Duty and that was to be a doer rather than a sayer.

WHAT! NO! Snake was not made by sony, he was made by Konami!

He has 4 major games as of right now, with Ghost of Sparta on the way, with the main trilogy completed, and a prequel (Chains of Olympus), this series is one of the, if not the best, videogame series in the world! Everytime Kratos appears on a console, it is not only the #1 seller, but the best critically review of the games on the playstation systems. Each game also pushes the graphical capabilities of the systems, and kratos, is amazing!

Kratos is the most powerful in video games

strongest video game character ever

He is my childhood hero, my cousin introduced me to the first Ratchet and Clank game. I have played and loved every single game. The series has gone so far, and Ratchet and Clank are also going to have their first movie based on the first game, which is set to be released in 2015. I will be 19 by the time it's released, I can't wait!

He manages to be both kid friendly and still interesting to adults at the same time, what more can you ask for. - lethaldose

The first game I ever played on PS2! Ratchet is cool, cute, awesome, funny and badass! Even Clank may seem cute with his little chuckle at times but he can be very dangerous too...

The character that introduced me to video games (yes I'm biased partially because of that).

5Spyro the Dragon

More than 15 years later and Spyro 2: Ripto's rage is still my favorite game. It was just so pure, so innocent. These kind of games are not to be found ever again, unfortunately.

The insomniac games were legendary! I want the old games back! The new ones are rubbish!

Spyro the dragon. The sole name triggers chills down your spine. - keyson

One of the greatest PlayStation characters of all time, but after Activision took him he fell apart. We need the original Spyro back

He did really good in Devil May Cry Series. So his first enemy was Phantom, like a spider with a scorpion's tail. My favorite villain of the first one was Nightmare, and he even brought back Phantom, so that's pretty cool, I'm interested. If you see the newly released 2013 Devil May Cry, my favorite boss would be... BREAKING NEWS! BOB! A news reporter. He doesn't seem all that much but at the end you end up fighting multiple Android-Hims. Dante is really good and of course my favorite villain is Vergil, the Twin Brothers, Dante lost much family. Lost his mother, lost the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda (His Dad), and lost his brother to evil.

Are you kidding me!? Spyro, ratchet, crash and jack are on top of the most badass freaking demon hunter?! Dante is unbeatable! He can use any type of weapon with unmatchable skill and kill and destroy anyone that tries to stop him! He could beat anyone character of this list, even kratos!

More powerful than whatever Hell can throw at him. I'm referring to the original Dante since I never played the new DMC.

Dante should be at first place

7Sly Cooper

Sly is the best. He has stealth and some crazy moves, and if that fails, he can just beat you to death with a 7 foot cane made of solid gold. He's also the best character in PlayStation all stars.

Over 20 moves that he could do. And the reason why his games are cooler than others

This man can enter the Louvre, dance some Tango, eat a hamburger, steal the Mona Lisa, drink a coffee and escape unseen

Whats better than being the bad guy and still win

8Nathan Drake

The Uncharted series are the best PlayStation 3 games for many reasons, with this grave robber being one of the biggest. Nate Drake is brave, intelligent and has one of the sharpest mouths in video gaming. Also, Nolan North is the voice behind this epic treasure hunter.

he is a man he kicks everyone's ass and uncharted 2 is the greatest game for ps3 actualy and sixth greatest of alltime after legend of zelda and mario and those nintendo people

Tough decision between Snake, crash, and Nathan Drake - Jonerman

So cool that guy.

9Lara CroftLara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

Childhood hero, really how much more to say then that? Originally got me into video games.

He is obviously very underrated for how innovative and interesting he was.

The Contenders


Soft and cute sackboy is in one of the most creative games ever made.

I've played little big planet with this lovable guy on every machine it can be played on.

A cute fluffy character that has turned into the PlayStation mascot.

A solid Mascot for PlayStation.

12Jill Valentine

Some one from Resident Evil belongs on this list why not from the first game

The master of unlocking who nearly became a Jill Sandwich

13Sweet Tooth

One Crazy Clown with fire for hair, an ice cream truck that dishes out fear, and weapons that are unbeatable

Famous PlayStation character from one of the first exclusive games on the ps1

He should be top ten at least. That one crazy clown, who kills people to get a wish... a simple wish, amazing O. O he was another character I grew up playing, and was in one of the best games. All out warfare in cars. The remake is amazing to. - That_Dude5414

14Ezio Auditore

You see his evolution, literally

15Cole MacGrath

He may not be the best but seriously he is the coolest!

Best game the PlayStation 2 has to offer period and most underrated character at that. The few who know him always have good things to say.

This is a must have. A Disney and Final Fantasy crossover. How amazing.


Rayman is legendary! Classic Playstation character! Perfect game, played this for hours as a kid. LOVE RAYMAN.
