29 Ness (Earthbound) Ness (Earthbound)

Ness gets attacked with knives, psi, and yet continues to keep going on a journey because he's told to! good job ness, the only reason he's not higher on this list is because no one knows who he is.

When you think about it. A 5 year old kid going into a womans uterus to fight a foetus that could wind up destroying the world. What a tune dog getting laid at 5. - TheGrammarPolice

Ness is a badass. I am not afraid to say that. - xandermartin98

30 Sean Devlin (The Saboteur) Sean Devlin (The Saboteur)

Sean Devlin would easily beat the crap out of Mario. When Sean's done with beating the crap out of Mario he would dump Mario into a coffin draped with a flag consisting of green white and orange. Sean would then celebrate Irish style (and by that I mean drink Guinness).

31 Dovahkiin (Elder Scrolls)

It's pretty easy being brave when you know you have a dragon's soul.

32 Jack (Bioshock)

38 Professor Layton (Professor Layton) Professor Layton (Professor Layton) Professor Hershel Layton is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Professor Layton fictional universe, created by Level-5.

I think that it would be a lot easier to defeat evil if you had some sort of power, but when you're ordinary it makes it all the more special.

39 Chris Redifield (Resident Evil)

Chris is the main character in the RE series (in my opinion anyway). What has he done? Exposed Umbrella, brought the company to its neighs, co-founded the BSAA, even killed Albert Wesker. Do I really need to say more?
