The Top Ten

Crash 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


[Newest]The first few games like Crash 1,2 and 3 were awesome. But through recent years his games have kinda gone downhill.

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.
[Newest]Not so many games of today send a big message that would impact the real life like this one. That's why is one of the best series ever made!

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.


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...
[Newest]Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet are my all time faves, but my vote goes to Ratchet!

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

5Spyro the Dragon
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.


Just BARELY in the top 10, a bit surprised, but I respect other people's opinions.

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.

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
Whats better than being the bad guy and still win

8Lara Croft

Childhood hero, really how much more to say then that? Originally got me into video games.
This guys should be infront of Ratchet and Sly

10Nathan Drake
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
Nathan drak is the best, they should play this saga, is the saga the play station whot more action and funny.

The Contenders

11Squall Lionheart
C'mon guys, you know its true!


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

14Jill Valentine
Some one from Resident Evil belongs on this list why not from the first game

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

16Ezio Auditore

17Big Boss

18Sweet Tooth

19Dr. Boskonovitch

20Cloud Strife

21Cole Mcgrath
Its spelled Cole Macgrath



24Gray Fox


26Lei Wulong


28Max Payne


better than niko (gta4), tommy(gta vc), toni(gta lcs)
and claude (gta3) he is AWSOME!
The guy that taught us how to be a real gangster.



33Jin Kazama


35Mael Radec


37Sir Daniel Fortesque
Seriously? Only 45? This guy is a real hero, definitely should be in top 10 at least, it's sad how these characters who we all loved are slowly and slowly getting forgotten by most people... I will always remember the adventures of Sir Daniel Fortesque... god I need to play the games now...

38Victor Sullivan

39Big Daddy


41Wander (ICO)


43Frank Woods

Should be number #1

She is my girlfriend
Ellie is the best woman character that Naughty Dog Could Create, AN AWESOME CHARACTER
I understand why she isn't number one, but she should be, I love her.


46Tiny Tiger

47Nathan Hale

Don't know this guy? Never played his games? Well you missed out big time.


49Delsin Rowe



52Trevor Phillips

Really good character but not as good Dante the demon slayer.

54Doctor Neo Cortex


I used to play ape escape:on the loose when I was around 8 and really liked Natalie. She's cool.

57PaRappa the Rapper
An amazing character from an amazing game. Need I say more?

58B.J. Blazkowicz
That guy from Wolfenstein!


59Elena Fisher

60Claude Speed

Even though I love Kratos or Crash, and I recognize Dante, Joel is better than them because of one thing: HE'S A HUMAN. That is what makes him so amazing, you could feel identified with him. He's not a god, nor a demon. The Last of Us character development is simply beautiful, you can understand Joel's pain. He's so real in a fictional world that is not.




I play ape escape a bunch of times well crash is the best I think ape escape and crash bandicoot is the best games ever

This robotic comedian is awesome!

67Heihachi Mishima
The min character of the tekken series and to being in different games he is second in line with pac man

68Fat Princess

The guy from all the soulcalibur games.

Soft and cute sackboy is in one of the most creative games ever made.
A cute fluffy character that has turned into the PlayStation mascot.
Sackboy is one of the first playstation characters I was introduced to. He is a nice, short, customizible sack man that makes the unimaginable possible, and his game makes your ideas come true!

Altair is not legally a PlayStation character
