Top Ten Most Inspiring Fictional Characters

The Top Ten
1 Forrest Gump (Forrest Gump) Forrest Gump is a fictional character who first appears in the 1986 novel by Winston Groom. Forrest Gump also appeared on screen in the 1994 film of the same name directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Forrest may be dim as a light-bulb but he sure is able to succeed to play ping-pong, saving an army buddy's life and running a business company that sells a pile load of shrimp. Possibly, he could be just an inspiration to these average people.

Yes. He is very inspiring. In the movie, it shows that it isn't all about the brains.

A truly inspiring character. That says it all...

2 Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)

Most Intelligent Witch of her age, probably will invent spells out of this world, and saved Harry Potter and the gang with her intelligence so many times. She inspired me to become great at what you do and love and help others because of it. She is also very brave and kind. Katniss could never have helped so many people nor have been more intelligent. Should be at the top of this list.

She shows girls that is not all about being "pretty"
She is smart, brave and strong
She punched an idiot right in the face (sorry Draco's fans)
She found the answer to almost all questions in the books
She's the kind of girl that seems only a useless bookworm, but is in fact an awesome and useful bookworm
Gotta love her, my favourite character... maybe ever

(Sorry if some of my grammar is wrong, but English isn't my first language... at all+ I'm 12)

3 Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) 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.

THe Hunger Games is amazing and Katniss Everdeen saves millions of lives. Though she dosnt love Peeta at the start her love becomes genuine later on. Katniss is kind, brave, thoughtful and very inspirational. She has a level head and has fight in her. She dosnt give up on what she thinks is right.

She is a very inspirational person that I think a lot of girls look up to. She is a very level headed girl and so strong that she makes me want to get up and make a difference.

How is Katniss Everdeen not number 1 she fought her whole life and nothing came easy she risked her life to save her sister how is that less inspiring than forest gump.

4 Vito Scaletta (Mafia)

Vito just wants to make enough cash to help out his family. In the process he finds out who killed his dad and made friends in the Falcone crime family.

Vito Scaletta is one gangster you wouldn't want to mess with. Katniss and Hermione would be foolish to cross paths with Vito.

What the hell is some geeky bookworm (Hermione Grainger) doing ahead of a war hero turned mafia made man like Vito Scaletta?

5 John Marston (Red Dead Redemption) John Marston is a central character and the main protagonist of Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare. He is portrayed by Rob Wiethoff.

If John Marston was a real person he would say this about his opponents on this list

1. "Katniss if you're having a sezieure hunting Turkeys how are you going to cope with cougars and grizzlies? "
2. "Vito your aim is sloppy let me show you how a real man shoots."
3. "Hermionie I'm sure your growth potion will make you bigger, by about 400 pounds rather than 50 feet. In other words your potion is just sugar and beer you charlatan".
4. "Sean I saw right through your disguise the second you walked into my territory".

John Marston is quite the hunter. More than Katniss ever will be. She freaked out and had a siezure when hunting Turkeys. John Marston on the other hand never freaked out and often hunted grizzlies, cougars and wolves without breaking a sweat. As well as making a tidy profit.

6 Hawkeye (Marvel Comics) Clinton Francis "Clint" Barton, better known as Hawkeye, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

He was a World War II veteran and is known as the world's first superhero. The character was created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon and... read more

So inspirational that all it takes to become a true hero is not about being big, or strong, or fast, because those things are just for support, but being a good, smart, brave, and heroic man no matter the size, is what it truly takes.

9 Cole Phelps (L.A. Noire)
10 Beatrice Prior (Divergent)

Tris is such an amazing character. She's so inspiring, brave, selfless, smart, wonderful! I think she's a beautifully written character because she's flawed and did bad things in her life (killing Will, for example) but that doesn't make her a bad person. I'm truly inspired by Tris's courage.

The Contenders
11 Rocky Balboa (Rocky) Robert "Rocky" Balboa is the title character of the Rocky film series. The character was created by Sylvester Stallone, who also portrayed him in all six Rocky films and two Creed movies.
12 Ella (Cinderella 2015)

Certainally an inspiration to all girls of our generation, or at least more of a role model than Homer Simpson.

13 Toadette (Super Mario) Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.
14 Will Kane (High Noon)
15 Lou Gehrig (The Pride of the Yankees)

Lou Gehrig was a real life Baseballer though not a fictional character.

16 Trevor Phillips (Grand Theft Auto V) Trevor Phillips is a character from the game Grand Theft Auto Five (GTAV), a Mature rated game from 2013, created by Rockstar. He is one of the games 3 antagonists. He is the former friend of Michael DeSanta, who he was part of a bank heist with 9 years prior to the main plot. He is known for being... read more

Grand Theft Auto 5's Trevor Phillips don't take crap from anyone.

17 Ratonhnhaké:ton (Connor) (Assassin's Creed)

A Native American with British ancestry, Connor avenges the death of his mother against the rising Templar order. In the process he is involved in the American Revolution.

18 Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)

That very first comment is rude Peeta Mellark is a sweet guy and always puts katniss first and is always thinking of others.

Sweetnatured and sensitive Peeta does what he can to protect Katniss.

Peeta should be higher on this list.

19 Molly Weasley (Harry Potter)

A very devoted housewife and mother. Because of the abuse Harry Potter received in his own home, she became a mother figure to him, in place of his own mother, who was killed while he was still an infant. Later, when Bellatrix Lestrange attempts to kill Molly's daughter, Molly kills her in a fit of zealous rage.

20 Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter) Ginny Weasley is a prominent character in the "Harry Potter" series by J.K. Rowling. She is the youngest child and only daughter of the Weasley family.

Homer always does the wrong things 90% of the time, or even more, WhooHoo!

23 Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter) Luna Lovegood was a witch from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. She was the only child of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine and Luna was raised by her father, who was the editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a... read more
