The Top Ten

1
Mario (from the Mario Series)
Italian, Obsessed with mushrooms, wears a red hat, wears a pre-schooler uniform, saves princesses every time, has a similar, but green partner, who is he? HE IS of course MARIO!

IGN

Who doesn't love the Italian plumber that is obsessed with mushrooms.

vidirg

Snake is not good, vote for Mario, he is the best.

Mario is the best in everything.

He should be number one.

Mario s US is the best, Mario forever.

He is better than Lara Croft.

2Link (from the Zelda games)
Well, well, well. This is certainly a surprise. I honestly thought that Link would be top. Aside from the obvious fact that The Legend of Zelda is undoubtedly the greatest game of all time, let me just tell you why. First, Link is portrayed differently through each of the games. Whatever you like, be it the 16-bit Link with his hat bobbing in the wind, the gorgeously stylised Link from The Wind Waker, or the awesome realistic Link from Twilight Princess there is a Link for everybody. Secondly, unlike thug Mario jumping on people's heads, Link is a true Hero. He isn't big or strong, but he is truly courageous, and can think in the direst of situations to solve problems, and fool his enemies. A truly rare personality.

Lastly, the greatest thing about Link is this. He never speaks, but he can do anything. No matter what is thrown at him, he will always rise to the challenge, and will succeed. Link is defined by his actions. Your actions. The reason Link is the greatest gaming character of all time is because, Link, the Hero of Time, is you.
Link is a unique and passionate character. He may not say a single word, but you can still understand his thoughts, emotions and feelings by his facial expressions. He's like a novel; deep, thoughtful and a true hero.
These r all good video game people and have got them self a one way ticket to the video game hall of fame from Mario to Lara Croft this web page has got them all ya Sonic and Master Chief have found a way into r harts but alien lasers and speed is not going to cut in the 3 most honorable characters here r #3 Snake y because unlike some people he can blind in with shadows I mean were not looking at his newer games but if you look at his older games Snake was a work of art! #2 Master Chief through all the halo games 1-4 this one man army has been blowing the face off of alien scum he's got the skills to revenge the earth from floating in the blackness of space to his first mission on Reach Master Chief has kicked alien tail.#1 Link someone who never backs out of a fight he swings his sword like a paint brush painting the micro scopic blood of evil plants pigs bats and more on the ground he has a epic ride a horse name epona and can do almost anything with the mask in his giant pocket face it he's a epic elf human thingy named Link not two pink feet with allergies I mean come on you picked a big noised plumber over Link that's just sad.

3Master Chief (Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3)
1) Is always cool and collected, never lets anything go to his head,
2) Never loud mouths and makes himself look like an ahole
3) Not an emo, like cloud,
Definitely deserves to be #1, Though everybody above him is good to, the good thing is that kratos is below him, I can not stand people talking about how great a guy is that dies in every game.
Enough with past Master Chief is one of the biggest badasses in the gaming world, Although I respect Mario as one the Characters who paved the way, with all due respect he's old news.
Master Chief redefined the term one-man army. Let's see Lara Croft or Mario save the universe single-handedly and revamp an entire video game genre. Oh that's right they can't. Master Chief should be #1

4Sonic the Hedgehog
Mario may have saved the video game industry and to that I applaud him, because without him there would be no Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic burst onto the scene in 1991 with Sonic the Hedgehog for the SEGA Genesis and hasn't quite gone yet. In his early years he was popular around the globe for his speedy platforming, something most games couldn't provide at the time. While his venture in 3D hasn't gone as smoothly as he would have liked, his legacy lives on and with the arrival of Sonic Colours and Generations as well as Sonic 4, people are starting to realise that the Blue Blur is finally back!
Truly the greatest. He's so cool and has simple yet awesome abilities. He has nearly unlimited bravery and a strong heart, he's a true hero.
Idiots even with your gaming, huh? You are funny. The greatest speed, the sense of duty he has, his cool grin and the trademark thumbs up! The definition of cool. The definition of hero. Plus he's the first character to have a company carrying his name (Sonic Team) and is a legend. Happy 18th birthday, Sonic! He was voted as the greatest character of all times in the video game festival in England. Learn why. And I don't wanna see that stuff again in lists! Never! And certainly not the omission of Shadow, Amy, Knuckles and Silver. Get out of here.

5Solid Snake (Metal Gear)
Snake is definitely one of the manliest characters out there. He's saved the world on multiple occasions and almost commits suicide when he realizes his existence could pose a threat to humanity. So please, stop voting for that neanderthal Kratos and vote for a real man.
"Killing is just one of those things that gets easier the more you do it"- Solid Snake.
Snake screams badass! He is just badass in every way! He got that deep raspy voice that just screams rugged and tough, he is charismastic, he has great courage, and he has strong determination and he will do whatever it takes to make sure the world and its inhabitants are in safe hands! He sacrifices so much for the betterment of the world! Truly a noble, brave, and tough-ass character!

6Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
Amazing game character ever to play! I have played all the series of Lara Croft games and even completed them and I believe its the best game ever made all this time. Once we play we would never regret!
The guy who says Mario is better than Lara Croft, doesn't know what a real video game character is. Mario is bland, old, and boring. Lara Croft, on the other hand, is AWESOME! She can fight, climb, swim, flip, and do all kinds of things. Top THAT, Mario. She also has an awesome, smart, badass personality. She has the best of the best gear, too. Doe's Mario have guns, a grapple hook, and a motorcycle? I don't think so. Just because Mario is older, doesn't mean he's better.

Let's face it guys, Lara Croft is better than Mario. Like I said, just because he's older, IT DOESN'T MEAN HE'S BETTER. Older and better are two different things. Lara Croft is the best.
She has a personality she's smart and redefine video game charactersI don't like her becauseof her sex appeal

7Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed 2)
Brilliant character, combined with the odd bit of humour! He needs to be in the top 10. Unfortunately Altair is before him, because Ezio is funnier, epicer, deadlier and downright entertaining!
It's not fair to compare this character with others in this list, Ezio and Altair are more than main game character they are completely alive and sensible...
Face it, mario and sonic can't do it like Ezio. He's one of the best video game characters out there if not the strongest. The top in this list should be Ezio or Alex Mercer from Prototype
More comments about Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed 2)

8Kirby
Master chief is by far my favorite character, but Kirby simply needs to be higher on this list. Don't let his looks fool you, Kirby is a stone cold murderer who will not let anyone get in the way of his quest. Look at Kirby Squeak Squad. He takes out countless innocent victims, defeats Meta Knight, and even Dark Nebula (AKA Satan), all for a slice of cake. Wow. What a hard-butt. Imagine when the fate of the universe is at stake. Kirby is a hero like no other.
Best CHARACTER IN GAMING HISTORY! Why? STOOPID QUESTION 1:HE'S ADORABLE 2:HE'S EPIC 3:ADDICTING GAMES ( NOT TO MENTION ZERO TWO THE ADORABLE EPICEST AWESOMEST BUTT KICKING BOSS IN THE UNIVERSES OF THE LIVING! ) IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN AGREEMENT IN 28 SECONDS WELL THIS IS SPARTA I TELL YOU SPARTA! Done
By far the best character ever invented. Kirby games are like mario games, but actually make sense. And that loser Ash Ketchum isn't even in any video games. If you are talking Kanto, he's RED, not "Ash".

9Kratos (God Of War)
Kratos is by far the coolest most awesome homicidal maniac of all time I mean how can mario or Lara Croft compare, he killed a whole pantheon of Greek gods, doesn't get more badass
All hail kratos, the most badass character in gaming history!
What KRATOS SHOULD BE number 1 HE KILLED ALL GODS

10Cloud (Final Fantasy VII)
I am something of a Final Fantasy veteran, myself, but I've never really met another protagonist I've liked as much as Cloud Strife. I really connected with Cloud. I felt and shared his pain. All the time, I see people on the internet calling him "emo" or otherwise undeserving of the mantle of hero. He was never happy in life, sure, but if you went through what he did, you'd know better.
He starts out arrogant and aloof, only really trying to save the world for the sake of a profit. As the game progressed, you really find out just how screwed up this guy is. To wit, this guy is a psych ward that walks on two legs. There's the obvious multiple identity disorder sure, but as I played further into the game, I picked up hints of post-traumatic stress disorder, some slight bipolarity, and (in the follow-up film especially), depression that he's been stewing in since he was sixteen or so years old. And I felt sorry for him. If Square wishes to continue that Compilation of FFVII, I wish this kid the best, even if he did sound like he was getting better in DoC.
EPIC! #1 should be him, Vincent or Sephiroth.

CyraxQC

Cloud and Sephiroth both... two of my favourite characters not only in video games but in anything ever.

The Contenders

11Altair (Assassin's Creed)
Ezio is a Marty Stu, that's it.
Sure, Altair doesn't have much of a personality in AC1 because at the time Ubisoft didn't know what to do that's why the first game wasn't as good as the other games, not to mention the terrible American voice BUT believe or not he was more human than Ezio, how? Well, he made a lot of mistakes and got punished, Ezio, on the other hand, is worshipped by the other characters, causes a disaster, surprise! You are our mentor!
Also, the codex pages reveal another side of him, his emotions, his thoughts and that he was an artist.
Ubisoft did know that they made terrible mistakes with him, that's why they finally made things right, they gave him a perfect accent and a great leader's personality. I don't care if Ezio was more "charming" and had a sense of humor, Altair rebuilt the Order, spread it, killed Genghis Khan, had the apple for over 60 years without allowing it to currupt him, invented many weapons including the hidden gun, all while raising a family.
Altair should be second on this list. And Ezio should be the first. Assassins Creed isn't like any other game... Its an epic in itself..
Yeah I think He and Ezio should be at the top they are like the most popular assassins out I mean everybody loves dark figures in the hoodie

12Dante (Devil May Cry Series)
What could be more righteous than a badass half- demon that has fire and lightning
swords which he slays monsters with, and probably listens to Slayer?
I also love Jak(Jak and Daxter) and Prince of Persia (Sands of Time, Warrior within,
Two Thrones)

Crash

How the hell is Crash Bandicoot and Mario above Dante? I mean come on, what could be
more righteous than a badass half-demon that slices monsters and bloody puppets in

HE HAS ACTUAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! Enough SAID!

18Ellie (The Last Of Us)
Ellie taught me how to be brave. She taught me that no matter how miserable our life's are, there is always something that keeps us going. Something to fight for. Something that's worth for living. For me she is this one character that I care about. Ellie was a girl that never asked for anything. Even though she was the girl that deserved everything.
The definition of a teenage badass, and immune to zombies! I'm 14, and if someone wanted to take me over halfway across the country on foot during a zombie apocalypse with a complete stranger, I'd be like "HELL NO! " But Ellie just went with it. That girl deserves everything. Not to mention she had all the funny lines.
Should be WAY higher!

19Leon (Resident Evil)
Leon is one of the best game characters ever made, with hi looks and smarts. And anyone who played RE4 is sure to know to.

21Lili de Rochefort (Tekken Series)
Her fighting moves are very graceful.. She is very attractive... Very rich and very beautiful... She fights for her father... And one of the mortal enemy of JIN KAZAMA.. She is the best among all the female fighting game character.. She may look innocent but she is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS
She is the most popular character in tekken... This is unexpected she is in the top 10...
My favorite character in tekken series... She is so BEAUTIFUL!

22Luigi (from the Mario Series)
Luigi is nice and generous and has a heart and daisy helps him become better than mario. Luigi is very caring I hope he has a kid one day and he saved peach from Peasly! Yes he risked him to help Peach. Superstar saga should give him credit and peach should bake him a cake he saved her!
Its-a-me-Luigi!
If you watch game theory, you would know that Mario is evil and that he is the worst brother to Luigi ever. Luigi has been through a lot with only Mario laughing in his face! Luigi deserves much more credit than Mario and is much cooler.

28Nathan Drake (Uncharted, Uncharted 2)
HOW IS NATHAN DRAKE NOT ON THIS LIST?!? THERE's POKEMON! I MEAN ARCEUS? REALLY? WHY isn't DRAKE HERE?! AND GLADOS, EZIO, ALTAIR, AND COMMANDER SHEPHERD SHOULD BE WAY HIGHER ON THE LIST! ASH KETCHUM AND DAWN FROM POKEMON ARE ABOVE ALL OF THEM!
He is hands down the best character ever... He says everything you think and to have that much humour while your getting shot at 24/7 is legendary... And to top it all off he's a good looking ladies man and a real smart ass... We can all relate to drake and that's the reason I love him
The Uncharted series is awesome. It has everything from those adventure movies: The mentor, the girl, the crazy bad guy (who dies), and the smart-talking adventurer. Oh yeah, and they end up destroying what they were searching for. (Bye-bye, El Dorado)

Sounds pretty awesome, don't you think? A man who has a bloody past, telling his story and shooting guys in bullet-time... Even Neo can't be cooler... And yes, a plumber defeated him...
He should be in the top 5! He is such an epic person! Lara croft is an idiot going around here!

31Vincent Valentine (Final Fantasy VII)
This guy has a three barreled gun, never says a word, and has claws on his hand. He's freaking awesome!
Although I think Sephiroth from 8 is probably the coolest character (I mean three barreled gun is cool but Sephiroth had a sword that he could extend at will, and he beat SQUALL), Vincent here definitely has a place in my heart as one of the coolest.
Come on man, He is so much cooler than Lara

32GLaDOS (Portal)
I was really surprised that GLaDOS wasn't higher on the list. She has a great dark and sarcastic sense of humor that entertains you and keeps you laughing throughout the game. She can make you hate her, being the evil, insane robot she is, or even pity her. I really hope they make another Portal game so that I have the chance to see this amazing character again
GLaDOS is a strange one but in the end is always the person who evil but good at the same time she should be higher on the list.
She survived getting torn apart and having those parts burned just to wake up and attempt to kill and insult Chelle, her "test subject. "

36Pikachu (Pokemon)
What the heck Pikachu is the best video game character by far... He should be number one I tell you.
Pikachu is one of the most famous characters. He's the star of more products than sonic will ever be. By the way, pikachu is a he, his tail isn't in the shape of a heart.

44Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
When I first saw this guy, I thought: God no, I don't want to be enarmoured by ANOTHER guy that doesn't exist. And after a few months of knowing him, he ended up as my favouite game character. Sure he doesn't have much of a personality and he's very intimidating as a boss but his looks and his backstory made up for those factors.

Sephirotha

Sephiroth has one of the best themes ever one winged angel. Not only that he has a katana longer than his whole damn body! Also combine the disaster of jenova into the mix and the one who influences sephiroth's actions and add his overpowering strength to the cake of evil. And you got a recipe of disaster.
well considering that sephiroth is the greatest game villian ever, I think he's been underated here.

49Ghost (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)
Like who doesn't like a guy that gets shot and Is stil ALIVE and has a Call of Duty game named after him

50Clementine (The Walking Dead)
How is she not higher!? Clementine is the only child in a video game EVER that hasn't made you want' to kill her! She's the sweetest, toughest little girl you'll find. And no matter what we've been through, and no matter how many mistakes a person has made, she finds a way to keep smiling. She can see beyond my misgivings and embraces people's good nature regardless of the evidence on the table. Though her frame may be tiny, she might be the strongest survivor among us. And even though I'm at the brink of abandoning my moral compassâ€"which has been battered by repeated betrayalâ€"one look at her furrowed little eyebrows and teared up eyes sends guilt rattling down my spine. Clementine keeps me grounded. I never want to disappoint Clementine.
She's one of the cutest!

51Robert Ashley (Hidden Mysteries: Titanic)

52Gordon Freeman (Half-Life series)
Gordon is 'cooler' than Master Chief. Master Chief is boring, he has guns. All Gordon needs is a crowbar.

purpl3ninja

Silent, smart, resourceful, rebellious, deadly, these are the qualities of Gordan that makes him so lovable. He doesn't need words, he has a crowbar. Whether he uses the crowbar to fight aliens, cops, or ant lions, Gordan is a bad ass and deserving of the greatest video game character ever.

53Johnny Gat (Saints Row)
How come nobody likes him. Gat is one of the best characters of all time. Gat is also a badass. He got shot by a shotgun in knee. The guy who shot Gat was less then 5 inches away. Gat later in the same game he walkes perfectly. He got stabbed by a katana sword and ripped it out. He lives. He also takes on an entire gang and takes the cops. He was in a chair which was bolted to the ground of plane and his arms were tied. He breaks out of the chair, smashes a guys face in the window, gets stabbed by a knife, rippes it out, and throws and hits a guy right in the head. He will also say some funny stuff. To me Johnny Gat is one of the characters of all time, and one of the most badasses.
Johnny Gat is THE definition of "badass".

Irish, smokes a lot, swears like a trooper, hates the Nazis, has a talent with race car driving and sabotage. Who could he be? It's Sean Devlin

Skinner

Duke Nukem is just a womanizing old fart who does nothing but take steroids, Kratos is just a member of some gay pride parade waving a pair of kitchen knives around like a lunatic. Sean Devlin on the other hand single handedly pushed the Nazis out of Occupied France.

And if what happened in the game really happened, The British and The Americans wouldn't have had to go to Normandy. Think about that.
Sean Devlin is much wittier than Yoshi and Sonic. In a video game battle royale Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Link and Sonic among others would get shot down down by Sean Devlin's silenced sten.

71Mr. Resetti (Animal Crossing)
He is a very funny character, but quite weird at the same time. He is a video game character that spews insults! He's there to save the animal crossing world from having too many paradoxes... So in a way he is the most heroic character ever! He wins, or he wins. You stop resetting. He wins. You keep resetting. He wins. Especially in City Folk. You cheat and he deletes! Scary, but I don't cheat because of him.

72Megaman

73Ness (EarthBound)
Ness is a awesome badass, he saved the world from mind controlling aliens and fought one of the most creepy looking characters ever, ness should be way higher than this at least top 20 material.
A young teenage hero who uses only a baseball bat to save the world, and PSI of course.
Ness is better than maario Mario defeats a oversized turtle and his army but ness is 12 and deafeats the essence of evil itself can take down 5 cops and their leader kills giant ants and is spychic Mario depends on flowers and mushrooms lara croft is not better than ness ness may be a kid but he is powerful at his own age

75Red (Pokemon)
Ash is ahead of Red? Red saved the world! If Red wasn't there to stop Team Rocket in the first place, Team Rocket would have moved on to all the other
Regions and take over Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova. You should actually consider putting Red above Ash. Ash isn't even in the games. To all those Pokemon fans, Red saved the pokemon world from being a boring place taken over by Team Rocket.
You can honestly forget about any other Pokemon character, as red has a overlevelled pikachu. GG, light orb volt tackle. And to be honest, he was beaten by a kid who had to go through 3x what he did to come close to him in the first place. So yeah.
Red is so awesome red rules

Damn you Ash you suck
Red will KO all your pokemon with his awesome charizard

76Sgt. Reznov (Call of Duty 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops)
He was not a figment of Mason's imagination, he made it out of Vorkuta.

77Agent 47 (Hitman Series)
A cold-blooded original ultimate assassin, agent 47 gets his name from the bar code tattooed on the back of his head.
Should be in the top ten

78Spyro (Spyro Series)
The purple dragon of fun-loving adventure.
Spyro is often overlooked. Which is sad. Although he only has two attacks, they provide use of comman sense in his games. Which is to me one of the reasons why spyro is so great.

79James Bond (007)

80Zelda (The Legend of Zelda series)
She is nice brave and guards the Triforce which takes mad skills. Princess Zelda is more mature then the other princesses. She actually acts like a princess with mysterious parents. She rules Hyrule like no other princess.
She's a badass, admit it. She's awesome and I believe that she is the most awesome princess ever; awesome magic skills, pirate, ninja, skill with sword (? ), archer... come on!
Should be a lot higher... Top ten at least... Mario is overrated as hell (Mario fanboys disliking my comment in 3...2...1... )

86Sora (Kingdom Hearts I And II)
the best swordsmen in the worlds!
he should be the best! unless Riku is an option, then he should be the best.
Sora can defeat a bunch of enemies with a giant key, knows magic, who knows how but he can speak to animals, and he is only 15
I grew up playing Kingdom Hearts and I'm pretty dissapointed that Sora isn't on the top ten, It would've been rather tear-jerking to see him on the top ten, 91 is no place for a hero

87Joker (Batman: Arkham Asylum / City)

Come on... He's The Joker... Nothing much is needed to speak... He is a guy capable to things no other villains in DC comics can. Even the most powerful ones... After brains are better than brawns...

Lightning... Beautiful, Gorgeous, Amazing, Strong, Loving, Powerful... Think... Lightning Is Everythung! She Care About The People She Loves! She Fight For Them! She Is The Goddess Of The World! The Girl Who Will Save The World! Our Hero!
She is the most badass character of all time, and the hottest. Enough Said.
