Top Ten Best Fictional Archers

The Top Ten
1 Legolas Greenleaf Legolas is a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He is a Sindarin Elf of the Woodland Realm and one of nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring. He has been portrayed by Orlando Bloom in the live action movies.

In all three movies, the only times his shots failed were when Gandalf blocked them using magic and when one passed through the King of the Dead. He also once hit an orc but didn't manage to kill him. Besides, he is also skilled with his daggers.

Legolas's character is lame, but he should be first because of his skill.

So cool. Definitely my favorite Lord of the Rings character. I am desperate to be an elf now.

2 Green Arrow Green Arrow is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Morton Weisinger and designed by George Papp, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941. His real name is Oliver Queen, a billionaire businessman and owner of Queen Industries, also a well-known... read more

Oliver Queen should be the #1 guy because I don't remember Hawkeye being able to survive on an island for 5 years, which happened to have tons of highly trained soldiers with guns.

He is a skilled archer and is fairly decent with hand-to-hand combat. He also has great character depth and a few very skilled proteges to boot.

After watching five seasons of Arrow, it totally proves Green Arrow is better than Hawkeye.

3 Hawkeye Clinton Francis "Clint" Barton, better known as Hawkeye, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a former special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he worked under the supervision of Phil Coulson. Known for his use of the bow and arrow as his primary weapon,... read more
4 Robin Hood

This man is not only based on a real person but also an amazing archer.

No proof has ever been found for Robin Hood or William Tell.

5 Katniss Everdeen Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.

How is Katniss not first?!?! She is an amazing archer!

This girl is an amazing archer and the winner of the Hunger Games.

6 Takumi

He's been called "Critkumi," "Killkumi," and "Bow Jesus" for a reason. Takumi obliterates enemies with deadly precision. My favorite archer/sniper by a mile.

My favorite character from Fire Emblem Fates. His commitment to training is incredible!

7 Yondu Yondu Udonta, or simply Yondu, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Michael Rooker.
8 Ranger
9 Aelin Galathynius
10 Innes (Fire Emblem the Sacred Stones)
The Contenders
11 Archer (Fate/Stay Night)
12 Azura (The Alliance Alive)

Not technically an archer, but can learn the archer class and/or skills very early on, and WOW, that girl can arch! I'd only put Takumi and Innes above her out of all the video game archers I've messed with.

13 Merida Princess Merida is a fictional character from Pixar's first ever Disney Princess film, Brave. She is a talented archer who wishes that she were not destined to become the Elegant Queen of Dun Broch. She is forced into a marriage betrothal by her mother, with whom she has a very negative relationship... read more

She has perfect aim even when riding a horse.

14 Rachel (The Alliance Alive)
15 Susan Pevensie Susan Pevensie is a fictional character in C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia series. Susan is the elder sister and the second eldest Pevensie child.

She is my favorite Narnia character in the movies but not the books. However, she is a great archer.

This girl is a great archer, one of the only humans ever to go into Narnia.

16 Jeorge (Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem Mystery of the Emblem)
17 Rosa (Final Fantasy IV)
18 Uryu Ishida Uryƫ Ishida is a fictional character and major figure in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.
19 Guinevere
20 Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.
21 Shinon (Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn)
22 Tauriel
23 Will Treaty

Rangers are the best literary archers. They shoot super fast and accurately. "A good archer practices until he gets it right, but a ranger practices until he never gets it wrong."

He is an incredible archer and would destroy all but Legolas in hand-to-hand combat.

24 Aloy (Horizon Zero Dawn) Aloy is the protagonist of Horizon Zero Dawn, a 2017 action-adventure game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment
25 Madoka Kaname (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) Madoka Kaname is the titular protagonist of the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.
