How can you not like this guy, he faces foes that could tear you apart in an instant like Grey Fox and Metal Gear Rex, and he does it over and over again.

Snake is selfless, willing to give up his own life for others and doesn't stop, even as an old man. Also, Metal Gear series is awesome. Need I say more?

21 Strider Hiryu (Strider)
22 Alucard (Castlevania) Alucard (Castlevania)
23 Kratos (God of War)
24 Wander (Shadow of the Colossus)

He is so weak.. Love is his motivation, and he could have done everything for this girl, plus he said "it doesn't matter" when he know there will be a price for what he will do, even if he manage to so it. A suicide mission. But an invincible love...

Should be number one, he has no fear and it is incredible.


25 Sora (Kingdom Hearts) Sora (Kingdom Hearts)

Will do anything to keep his friends safe. A very dependable hero, friend, and warrior.

26 Ness (Earthbound) Ness (Earthbound)

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

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.

27 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).

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

29 Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden) Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)

33 Reyn (Xenoblade Chronicles)
34 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.

35 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?

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

Shouldn't be on the list is just a knockoff of skylanders
