Best Capcom Characters


The Top Ten

1 Dante Dante Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.

Dante has Yamato, Quicksilver, Pandora and Rebellion up his sleeve. He's obviously everyone's favorite. I guarantee that he could destroy every other Capcom character.

A cyborg in blue armor that shoots lasers? He'd Quicksilver Began an and Yamato dat ass.

A hobo martial artist? He'd pump him full of lead before Thursday could blink.

I don't even think I have to explain how he curbstomps Leon.

Phoenix Wright is literally just a lawyer.

Strider would stand a chance. But he'd be killed too, after a long hard right.

Seriously though.

Dante is the coolest and strongest character ever created. He kills all DC and Marvel characters with styles.

STYLISH AND VIEWTIFUL! He's put higher than his dad, which makes him also:LEGENDARY DARK KNIGHT DANTE, and, his Devil Trigger is viewtiful, and there was a redesign in him, I wasn't really interested in though. So basically, he's a HALF-HUMAN AND HALF-DEMON.

He have a strong fighting style that maybe don't have a weakness (lol)

2 Ryu Ryu Ryu is a video game player character created by Capcom, the protagonist of the Street Fighter series.

By far the WORST character ever exist in SF2

3 Mega Man Mega Man Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.

This guy can easily beat any body with just one simple metal blade who can steal people's power... Megaman. Who can go around shooting other robots... Megaman. GO MEGAMAN!

For me Classic Mega Man is the best hero ever and mighty no. 9 won't replace him in my opinion. Plus all the Mega Man classic games were perfect for me. There wasn't a single Mega Man game that didn't have a catchy music. All in all no one will change Mega Man I will always think of it as the best franchise ever. Mega Man for the win!

The best of the best! He will steal your power and use it! He will destroy any that you throw at him!. LONG LIVE THE BLUE BOMBER!.

One of the most Capcom's iconic characters.

4 Leon S. Kennedy Leon S. Kennedy

As one of the main characters of the Resident Evil saga, he deserves more than a 9th place.

He's the best... No one is in the resident evil series that can kill him. His personality is very different from others as well as he is very intelligent about the situations or breakouts happened.

God Leon is a classic Re character a boss with all weapons he is cool like the uniform again the weapons his hairstyle everything. Imagine resident evil without Leon it will not be the same

5 Phoenix Wright Phoenix Wright Phoenix Wright, known as Ryūichi Naruhodō in the original Japanese-language versions, is a fictional defense attorney in Capcom's Ace Attorney video game series.

I like phoenix wright for these reasons
1: Unlike all Defense Attorneys he only cares about finding the truth.
2: The Game is funny and fun
3: He is friends with a Prosecutor, A really awesome one as well
4: His Game is well Written, a lot of the case are connected in some way

I think Ace Attorney, Street Fighter, Mega man and Devil may Cry the Best Capcom Game in the World.

#1 I like Phoenix Wright because he can beats Dead Pool in a fight.
#3 His game is fun and written beautifully.
#4 He only cares about finding the truth.

Phoenix Wright should be voiced by Flo Rida because they're both buff & of average men's height.

A Capcom character with neither superpowers nor a fighting experience and all he has are lawyer knowledge?
Then he's literally a badass Capcom character, alright.

6 Strider Hiryu

Sit back now; lemme tell you a tale where evil and injustice does not prevail.

One day, there was a city and a Grandmaster that watched over it. He had a robot army and a league of powerful subordinates that ruled through fear. 11 ninjas known as Striders barged into the city and made a big stink. Each one was killed. Finally, one last Strider waltzed in and cut the army and the subordinates down to size. He proceeded to walk into the Grandmaster's throne room, eat his heart after tearing it out with his hand, and stroll out of the city, never to be seen by the citizens again. That Strider was Strider Hiryu, the ultimate embodiment of all awesome.

He's Strider, that's why! The ultimate ninja of not only Capcom games but video games in general.Yeah I said it, Ryu Hayabusa!

Strider is even better than him as seen in his Death Battle. Plus if you see the translated Strider manga, you can agree that Strider is GODLIKE INCARNATE.He karate chops people with his BARE HANDS! AND SLICES CLEAN THROUGH THE HUMAN BODY WITHOUT USING A WEAPON AT ALL!

Plus his design and personality are impressively badass as well.And finally he slices so ' fast that you'll explode in awe.


And to anyone who doesn't agree, I say only this...LEGION!

While I think he would draw against Hayabusa, he is still one badass ninja.

He beat Hayabusa. enough said.

7 Chun Li Chun Li


Why 15th? Chun, Cammy and Sakura ought to be higher. They made it so much cooler to be a girl in the 90s. Also, spikey bracelets yo.

8 Akuma Akuma Akuma known as Gouki in Japan is a character of the Street Fighter series and recurring antagonist, first appearing in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a hidden character and boss who could be summoned after certain conditions were met, an emotionless and powerful warrior fixated on mastering the Satsui more.

There are really powerful capcom characters but Akuma is hands down the most powerful, and if he enters Oni mode then is completely one sided no matter who he fights against.

If Dante out of dmc see's him Dante will make demon chow out of him.

Akuma is easily the best capcom character of all time

Akuma is better than ryu

9 Amaterasu

Amaterasu is just a stupid character. - SunGoku

It's a godess, it's an wolf, it has a giant paintbrush, it's powerful; the only think else I would like is a sequel!

I loved Ōkami, one of my favourite games of all time, and Amaterasu was a brilliant character...

Okami is strong enough to spin galaxys and can create stars by simply wanting it as well as being able to revive drom the dead multiple times over. She is one of the most powerful characters in gaming and could probably kick even Kratoss ass.

10 Mega Man X

The Contenders

11 Morrigan Aensland Morrigan Aensland Morrigan Aensland is a video game character from the Darkstalkers series of fighting games by Capcom, introduced in Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors in 1994.


12 Zero

Dude, he could kick almost any Capcom characters ass. Especially Dante. I played the Devil May Cry games and Dante has nothing on Zero. His Z-saber, badass Z buster, that shiny red armor, awesome ponytail. Yeah. Least Zero didn't have to get his hair changed to black..

He's Zero. 'enough said.

Zero... Go look it up you dorks...

18 Cammy Cammy Cammy White, also known as Cammy and the codename Killer Bee in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is a video game character in the Street Fighter fighting game series and the second female fighter to appear in the series, after Chun-Li.
19 Frank West Frank West

I love him so much because I love the dead rising games.
I think Chuck Greene should be on the list too because he's from dead rising 2

FAN-TASTIC. If he can beat a 7ft psycotic war veteran with a machete He could beat all Capcom characters hands down, but chuc greene should be on this list

22 Sir Arthur
23 Asura

Asura just kicks ass when he is on his hell bent journey for revenge and honestly he deserves way better than fifth place

"Asura killed God the creator himself. "

Asura is a tank who is much better than some others on this list.

Asura will crush Dante. Asura for number 1
