2 Sonic

No game took the risks especially when first created and exploded into success and popularity like Sonic did. The guy has spawned a fandom worlds greater than any video game character in history and goes viral with ease. To have a charaacter with such dimension, lore and history and still be at the top after all these years, especially in the face of other longtime videogame mascots with virtually no real character development or character depth (much less voices) is a feat to say the least. I say well deserved. It's phenomenal to do what Sonic's character has done and have it work so well. Opinion on games aside, I think it's fair to say that he's the greatest videogame mascot. We're talking about characters here people, not games or companies.

Fantastic character and I absolutely LOVE Sonic, but unfortunately SEGA hasn't really done him justice with any of the new games. Or voice actors. Poor Sonic. Just give him some good games! PLEASE!

Sonic is better than Mario, so much better. Who cares about some dumb plumber, being an awesome speedy, teenaged, hedgehog is where it's all at.

I love chili dogs and running fast also doing 360 and curling up in a ball and CRUSHING MY EMEMIES!

3 Crash

Crash was the original mascot for PlayStation. Sony needs to make a comeback.

I've never played a crash bandicoot game, but I still think he would be a better mascot then sackboy

Crash is the best game invented ever

4 Spyro Spyro Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.

Spyro made the landscape more vivid with its platform skills ahead of time. Even better than Mario 64. Crash also cool too. He's just plain fun, sonic ass style!

OH GOD thank you those who voted for spyro! Definitely th PlayStation mascot!

Spyro and Crash are the undisputed kings of their generation.

Spyro is best!

5 Link Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link should be 3rd if not second, crash and spyro can't compete with the hero of time. Which of these 3 managed to do the best financially, in terms of legendary battles and, all out surviving enough to have games continue in their given franchise? I mean sony is great don't get me wrong here but if they wanted to make more games for these guys they would've by now.

Whats he doing on #10. He should be #3 not spyro the dragon which skylanders didn't even exist - s646463

Link is my favorite video game charater ever but he's not a mascot

11 Pac Man

Pac man, literally the Mario before Mario without the personality. Those of you who lived in the arcade era would know crowds of people waiting in line to compete for the top score at a pac man arcade machine. So his T.V. show may ruin the pac man we all know and love but didn't sonic and Mario do the same?

13 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

Where would player one be without his player 2? Luigi may not be as recognizable in the games as Mario but a large majority of the Mario fans prefer luigi over Mario. Luigi may have started out as just a pallet swap but in the end he became a man of his own. He learned from a dinosaur how to stay in the air a little longer (scuttle jump), he is a coward though it just adds to his general badassery. At least put him around 5

People pay 2 much attention to Mario and not enough to Luigi. He's got way more personality! - Pikachulover1

14 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

In my heart he is a great mascot but he is only number 10 because his games were not that great like people say. A lot of people may disagree but sorry this is my opinion I am entitled to it :). - Kingjon15

He is a cool lizard I like this guy because his game was okay but memorable - Kingjon15

18 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Why isn't Pikachu up here until now?! Come on most people don't even KNOW who 2-9 are and I know a lot of people that don't know Sonic that well. Yeah, Mario, Donkey Kong and Pac Man I get but the others have never been seen! Everyone knows Pikachu! - Pikachulover1

Pikachu is the Pokémon series both games and cartoons if you think Pokémon you think a Pikachu first

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

A woman who is a mascot? I enjoyed her game but the reason she is so low is because she is a human. Sorry but animals are more awesome - Kingjon15

20 Wario Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.
