The Top Ten

1 Legolas Greenleaf 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.

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

Legolas is here. All other archers can go home now.

He can shoot anything from any distance.

In all three movies the only times his shot failed was when Gandalf snapped it using magic and when it 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

2 Green Arrow 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 more.

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.

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

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

Greatest archer of all time.
