Greatest performance ever by Heath Ledger - Ajkloth

Phenomenal performance by Heath Ledger... How he laughed... He nearly destroyed batman.

Okay, yes, The Joker is a great character, but my god, what a horrendous list. Where's Rick Blaine? Colonel Kurtz? Travis Bickle? Michael Corleone? Henry Hill? Atticus Finch? Norman Bates? Vito Corleone? Ripley?

Joker should be 1, Darth Vader is boring

3 Andy Dufresne (The Shawshank Redemption) Andy Dufresne (The Shawshank Redemption)

The absolute greatest, clever character

Best character in the best movie!

Brilliant - PeeledBanana

4 Darth Vader (Star Wars Saga) Darth Vader (Star Wars Saga) Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

I LOVE STAR WARS! Those who think otherwise should watch the series once, and I'm sure they'd change their minds.

5 Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean Series)

Wait why is he on the list twice lol - missyweirdo

6 Harry Potter (Harry Potter Series) Harry Potter (Harry Potter Series) Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

What's the difference between the Harry in the book and the movies? There's another Top Tens, and in that one (for the books I guess? ) Harry was #2... But still, he's really sweet and a HERO! - Splashstorm

Not a bad character but he's too overrated.

The most epic, beautifully written character in film history. - MutantGenesis

Harry potter is supermegafoxyawesomehot... If ya know what I mean, and he is also the greatest most beautiful wizard, most sexy wizard in the wizarding world... (And yes I am a starkid fan)

7 Brooks (The Shawshank Redemption)
8 Shorty Meeks (Scary Movie 1 & 2)

Funny character best in scary movie series

9 Han Solo (Star Wars Saga) Han Solo (Star Wars Saga) Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

He is so badass! R.I.P! - missyweirdo

10 Hanson (Scary Movie 2)

The Contenders

11 Wallace (Scott Pilgrim Vs.The World)
12 Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs) Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)

Come on! He's the most famous cannibal of all time! This thriller made him truly a superstar. He's intelligent and also very dangerous. I believe that he, after the joker in the batman series, is the best villain ever.

He in every way is better then most people on this list he eats people for out loud come on

Dr Hannibal Lecter sports the fact that he is the most cannibal ever. He's complex in the way his character is written and he is so interesting that providing he didn't eat me, I would like to talk with him face to face.
