Top Ten Video Game Characters

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Megaman

He's certainly iconic, he's right up there with Mario, Sonic and Pacman, speaking of which, Is Pacman on here at all?

Come on! Its Megaman, What The HELL!

Come on megaman is like sonic the hedgehog anime series against evil man with robot army's he should at least be number 7 replacing that assassin creed dude or whatever he is

Megaman should be at least number 5

22John Marston (Red Dead Redemption)

No doubt he is the best. He sacrificed himself for his family. Everyman must do it he is real hero.

HE HAS ACTUAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! Enough SAID! - q1q1q1q1q1

Deep and rich character. Totally a tough guy but some sense on right and wrong. All what matters is safety of those he loves - in any cost. A true hero.

We're talking about a true character to the core. By the end of the game I started feeling like John was apart of me. I felt like a real Red Dead gunslinger. Rockstar did a great job as usual and hit the jackpot for me. In my top 5 for sure.

23Commander Shepard (Mass Effect 2)

Commander Shepard is one of the greatest soldier characters devised in gaming. A master chief in his own right. Saving the galaxy and proving himself to be one of the most elite leaders conceivable while still being realistic and relative; no gimmicky super power armor or superhuman implants for this guy, but still an all around hero.

Commander Shepard, three-time savior of the galaxy, all-around badass and hero/antihero, is at the 41st spot? That's insane. And the #1 spot is taken by Mario, a plumber whose claim to fame is jumping on people"s heads and trying to save a single person... Really?

Deserves to be up higher, at least the top ten. He and his squad has saved the world on a galactic scale. Plus the game offers a great story and is a top RPG.

She is an awesome character! Sarcastic and badass.

24Niko Bellic (Grand Theft Auto IV)

Niko Bellic is my favorite Grand Theft Auto character ever... Niko my cousin lets go to the top - OreSama

The only character in the series with a real personality that doesn't want to live in the world of Grand Theft Auto it was sucked into, and had a story that doesn't involve pointless murder, but instead doing what he need to finally be free of his past.

My favorite character of all time and my favorite single player experience was from Grand Theft Auto IV. If that game and story had any other main character it would have failed. Niko made that story work and also thrive.

This even should be in first page

25Max Payne (Max Payne Series)

"It's a snowy day, I was looking for my laptop in the reflection of myself, and then I found her, at 30th,...
My heart's broken. Like a fallen angle..."

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!

He's just a completely cool badass who is able to speak poetry and kill bastards at the same time

The closest gloomy story psychotic bad a s, s in video games u can play as.

26Altair (Assassin's Creed)

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

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 ...more

The words can't say anything if play with this character you will see

27Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.

A ninja from the Shrai Ryu with his family taken away from him by a doppelganger of one of his rivals. "Hanzo is dead I am Scorpion! " yes he awaits the day for vengeance in tournament itself challenging people and using his most famous quote to kill people "get over here" sorry I can't type everything I'm on my phone in the middle of the night

Remember in Deception when it turned out he was the chosen warrior of the Elder Gods and RIPPED OPEN THE DRAGON KING ONAGA'S BODY OPEN AND JUMPED THROUGH IT

The two best lines in video games. "Toasty! " and "Get over here! "

Scorpion should be in the top ten

28Captain Price (Modern Warfare 1,2)

What I mean character like lara croft who just jumps on the rope like money is in top ten and the noblest captain price us stands on 19th well I salute developers of Call of Duty for this magical character

Just best of the best. Better then chuck norris anyways.
Before sleeping, chuck is first looking for this man in his closet and under his bed

He will guide future soldiers to come

"This is for the record."

29Big Boss aka Naked Snake (Metal Gear Solid 3)

The one who made it possible to create some of the greatest soldiers ever. In his prime he would have kicked Solid Snake's ass. His story is deeper and a lot more tragic as well.

I see yoshi in the top 15 but not big boss

Solid snake is no more than a clone of the "Best soldier of thz 20th century, He was the one that developped the CQC with the boss and the one who had the hardest past, Solid, Liquid or Solidus doesn'tstand a chance against him. He deserve waay better than this rank...

30Clementine (The Walking Dead)

Almost as good as a charge yet as Lee, this was without doubt my favorite supporting character from the first game, and is doing a great job in the lead role in the second.

Should be way higher. At least in the top 20. She's been in situations that would make grown men wet themselves. Way badass.

Cutest video game character there is especially when around lee - Red26473

I prefer Kenny

31Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect)

Why the hell is garrus below Ellie from the last of us?

Why is Garrus not right up there with Shepard?

32Bowser (Mario Series)Bowser or King Koopa is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Bowser, he is a turtle and dragon combined he sucks at stealing princesses and is terrible at killing plumbers. However there are those times where Bowser is victorious (kinda), when Mario runs out of lives!

108, seriously. I love Tails and I think he should be up there, but Bowser 150% should be at least the best villain. He's Bowser! come on!

Pac-Man (6'2") saves Amy Rose (5'10") from King Bowser (8'8") whom Proto-Man (6'7") makes fun of while supporting him.

Most famous antagonist of all time

33Princess Peach (Mario series)

He'll no! She's bossy, ungrateful, overrated supremely annoying, graceless, not elite enough for her tall height, spoiled, stubborn & temperamental. I would put her in my video game franchise, but she is so obsessed with females & unfortunately, she has appeared the most out of any other female video game character in video gaming history, which I moderately deny.

Stop hating, if it wasn't for peach there wouldn't be a story for the game, she is a crucial character for the games. Look at it this way she hasn't been kidnapped for like 3 years or more now, she takes a more lead role as a main playable character these days instead of being the main support character which I really love! GOD SAVE THE PRINCESS!

Why does everyone hate her? No really just wondering? I mean she is the reason most of the games happen and she's not overrated because everyone here hates her! - DCfnaf

Ungrateful? What the heck are you talking about? When has Peach ever not thanked Mario, given him a kiss, then baked him a cake? YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID! Also she's super nice and sweet. And what does He'll no even mean? He'll like he-will?

34Brenda Carlton (Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes)
35Meta Knight (Kirby)Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Unlike most people, I like Meta Knight better than Mario, Snake, even Lara Croft for crying out loud. Y? Because he's awesome and his sword is awesome. Being an antihero is awesome. In Meta Knight standards of course. - wjacob313

If you are so overpowered that you are banned from tournaments, that says something about you. His sword is LEGENDARY, he has one of the mot iconic Nintendo ships, his cape becomes wings enabling flight, and what not to say? He is just one pure word, Epic. - Mewbosses

He is awesome, with his sword and cape and wings and gigantic Battleship Halberd, and his mask, pretty boss to me.

Meta Knight is a fantastic character! Best character in Kirby! - DCfnaf

36Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)

Elizabeth is one of the best looking females I've seen in gaming, she is truly a girl who makes a emotional bound between a gamer and herself.

Oh come on! She is PERFECT in every reality! This lady is adorable, tough, brave and kind. She is such a great character from such a great game

The nly reason I picked her was becouse the letuce twins weren't on here but it still is heartbreaking when she dies

37Bomberman

He should be top 1, or at least top 5! He'd make a perfect partner to Princess Daisy from the Mario franchise.

Bomber man will never be nowhere near Marios Rank, which is Number 1

38Trevor Philips (Grand Theft Auto V)

When you start playing as him, you better be ready. He could be asleep on some rails, or be in a strip club with only his boxers on.

Come on people how is he not up there.

Ah how I love trevor, the best in Grand Theft Auto V. - bestgamer

He is need to be in 1#

39Red (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.

Ah, yes. Red. He's the guy who helped mold Giovanni into goodness, saving the world, and he's ten. Along the way to saving everything, Red helped countless towns and paved the way for the second-most sold video game franchise in history.

Red is the best to me. His team is well rounded and able to counter certain types.

40Beldam (Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door)

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is very overrated & Super Paper Mario is much better. But Beldam? She should be replaced by Vivian! She is not ugly. I think that Beldam's face may be a private part.

I like dimentio better, but I think that he may have just been a rehash of Beldam... I mean, she manipulated the main antagonist and stabbed him/her in the back at the last second! So did Dimentio! - HeavyDonkeyKong

She is unimportant & has very soft skin due to old age. Imagine if Sonic the Hedgehog fought her.

What, the Shadow Queen is way better
