Top Ten Best Playstation Characters

The Top Ten

1 Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

The legendary PlayStation 1 icon returns to take his place as the number 1 PlayStation character. the first crash bandicoot game I remember playing is CTR (Crash Team Racing, DUH) but everybody knows he is the best and always will be the best.

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.

Crash is definitely the most important mascot of Sony. What one used to be a rad animal facing his rivals in the mid nineties, Crash lost his popularity due to a generational shift. I miss Crash!

By far the most original character Sony has been involved with. Too bad his other publishers sent him into the downward spiral.

2 Kratos

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! Every time 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 biggest playstation character ever. Strength, purpose, will.

Badass, angry and powerful bastard. What else do you need?

Kratos is the most powerful in video games

3 Nathan Drake

The Uncharted series are the best PlayStation 3 games for many reasons, with this grave robber being one of the biggest. Nate Drake is brave, intelligent and has one of the sharpest mouths in video gaming. Also, Nolan North is the voice behind this epic treasure hunter.

Nathen drake is from the uncharted series and uncharted 1,2,3, and 4. Nathen drake has awesome weapons that are a pistol,a ak47 and a knife I think. I love the 2 game because the first level when you try to get out of a bus that is about to fall down.

He is better than the others. More popular than Lara Croft, better than Indiana Jones. His game beats the other rookie game.

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

4 Ratchet Ratchet is one of the protagonists of the Ratchet and Clank series developed by insomniac games as a playstation exclusive.

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!

When I was a kid My brother had a PlayStation 2 in his room and I came in once and saw him playing ratchet And clank and I would watch and watch until my dad said it was time for bed then for Christmas I got a ps2 and I borowed ratchet and clank and I would play it everyday. and to this day my ps2 is gone I have a ps3 with the hd collection of all the ps2 RaC games except for deadlocked cause that sucked and I still play them with the futre series... can't wait for the movie!

Ratchet's an awesome character, but I don't like his new design. He looks far too young and less menacing. I want his design back from the future series tools of destruction or crack in time. He had the perfect design in the future series

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...

5 Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

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.

Sony's Snake(Metal Gear Saga) has come quite long ways from the starting pixel mashing portraits. Where Crash Bandicoot is a smash, Solid Snake delivers in wholesome. Big Boss has changed also in this series such as colors on the identification of the persona. The mesh with pixels is the simplest to gratify could find however still neat to shoot at times and give it a whirl of play. Dandy.

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.

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!

6 Sly Cooper Sly Cooper is the title character of the Sly Cooper video game series, developed by Sucker Punch Productions and Sanzaru Games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita consoles.

Sly Cooper is my all time favorite out of all the PlayStation Hero's, I loved him ever since my childhood and would endlessly play the 1st many times. He's got tons of abilities and I just like his design and his gang. I hope to see more go into the character in the future. May not be the best PlayStation character, but I would say he's ONE of the best, and possibly standing on the side of the face of PlayStation, that being, Crash Bandicoot, maybe even with Ratchet and Clank, and Jak and Daxter

I was expecting Sly cooper, Rachet and Clank, and Jak and Daxter to be in the top three because these guy have the best graphic I have ever seen in gaming when I was a kid, but Sly Cooper was the best he is my second favorite video game character right above him is Dante from Devil May Cry and the third is Ratchet and Clank. Anyway it was fun playing this guy when I was young and If I were to compare him to any superhero that I know It would be Batman. I mean he has one of the best villans I have ever seen in video games; Clockwerk

His games changed stealth and platform on the ps2 era. Besides, he is one of the only mascots that carries with him a deep and adult backstory and also other iconic characters like Murray, Bentley and Carmelita.
My favorite mascot!

Sly Cooper especially with his gang is just the best video character to me. Plus this and Batman makes me think I can do some sneaky like them. I probably would dress up as batman if it wasn't so crazy. I would (but I don't)

7 Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon is the titular main character and protagonist of the Spyro video game series, including The Legend of Spyro.

More than 15 years later and Spyro 2: Ripto's rage is still my favorite game. It was just so pure, so innocent. These kind of games are not to be found ever again, unfortunately.

One of the greatest PlayStation characters of all time, but after Activision took him he fell apart. We need the original Spyro back

The insomniac games were legendary! I want the old games back! The new ones are rubbish!

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

8 Jak

Another Naughty Dog character. He, Sly, and Ratchet, are the big daddies of PS2. But unlike Sly and Ratchet, Jak's games were ONLY on PS2. He hasn't gotten a sequel yet. Though in my opinion the series ended perfectly so that's fine.

Childhood hero, really how much more to say then that? Originally got me into video games.

He is obviously very underrated for how innovative and interesting he was.

Way better than Nathan Drake.

9 Dante

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.

Dante is a badass! Every Devil May Cry game- aside from the excellent gameplay and storylines- focuses on the self-centred, demon-hating and (most importantly) 'Stylish' pizza maniac that is Dante Sparda.

In the third game in the series, DMC3: Dante's Awakening, the character is at his strongest when in scenes with twin brother Vergil.

More powerful than whatever Hell can throw at him. I'm referring to the original Dante since I never played the new DMC.

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!

10 Sackboy

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!

I've played little big planet with this lovable guy on every machine it can be played on.

A cute fluffy character that has turned into the PlayStation mascot.

Soft and cute sackboy is in one of the most creative games ever made.

The Contenders

11 Sweet Tooth

He should be top ten at least. That one crazy clown, who kills people to get a wish... a simple wish, amazing O. O he was another character I grew up playing, and was in one of the best games. All out warfare in cars. The remake is amazing to.

One of the best Playstation characters ever, Marcus "Needles" Kane deserves more love than other characters on this list.

Famous PlayStation character from one of the first exclusive games on the ps1

One Crazy Clown with fire for hair, an ice cream truck that dishes out fear, and weapons that are unbeatable

12 Lara Croft Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

The Iconic Tomb Raider.

13 Cole MacGrath Cole MacGrath is a fictional character, who is the main protagonist and player character of the 2009 PlayStation 3 video game inFamous and it's 2011 sequel inFamous 2.

He may not be the best but seriously he is the coolest!

He should not be inFamous.

Its spelled Cole Macgrath

14 Big Boss
15 Cloud Strife Cloud Strife is a fictional character and the main protagonist of Square Enix's 1997 role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII and several of its sequels and spin-offs.

This should be higher just because Zack from final fantasy isn't cloud is cool though

16 Sir 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...

Daniel Fortesque was a beast! Medievil is one of the best games for the original PlayStation.

The best name ever

17 Mael Radec

This dude is extremely loyal to his ideals and his people

18 Jill Valentine Jill Valentine is a fictional character from the Resident Evil series first appearing in the first Resident Evil game in 1996 as one of the two playable characters, she would also go on to star in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

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

The master of unlocking who nearly became a Jill Sandwich

19 Alucard Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

How is he not #1?

20 Abe

Best character ever

21 Lammy Lamb

Popularity of games aside...
she was such a better character than Parappa

(also a way, WAY better game, honestly)

22 Ellie

I understand why she isn't number one, but she should be, I love her.

Should be number #1

She is my girlfriend

Ellie is the best woman character that Naughty Dog Could Create, AN AWESOME CHARACTER

23 Rayman Rayman is the main protagonist and title character of the Rayman series created by Ubisoft game designer Michel Ancel.

Epic games, like Rayman Arena

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

24 Sora

Best game the PlayStation 2 has to offer period and most underrated character at that. The few who know him always have good things to say.

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

You'd never expect a Final Fantasy/Disney game to be this good.

25 Clank Clank is one of the titular protagonist game characters in the Ratchet & Clank video game series by Insomniac Games.
