Top Ten Bravest Video Game Heroes

There are worlds that are scary fun then there are some just awesome.
The Top Ten
1 Link (Legend of Zelda) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link is the definition of brave. The guy possesses the Triforce of Courage, for pity's sake! He has been battling creatures and villains multiple times larger than himself for years and still manages to come out on top! He's the best there is, simple as that.

He is the definition of awesome. I'm so into him. I love how he kills Ganon. You have to get The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Brave, small little boy who is incredibly gritty and, even in the scariest situations, almost never shows fear.

2 Master Chief (Halo) Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

You will not believe the mental hardships he had to go through. Just to name a few: the fall of Reach, the discovery of the Flood, the destruction of Halo, having to rescue Cortana from a Flood hive, the death of Miranda Keyes and Sergeant Johnson, and thinking Cortana is dead only for her to turn her back on him when they meet again.

And through all that, he still answers the call to action.

Bravery is not looking for trouble. It's doing what's necessary when needed.

I would like to see Link or Doomguy go through a Flood hive. Link would run in the opposite direction. Doomguy would just run in thinking he could tear everything up because he was gifted by a god.

3 Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.
4 Mario (Super Mario) Mario, originally named Jumpman, is the main character of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario game, including games in spin-off series as a playable character, with... read more

It's a game you'll love to play and never get tired of. I love it.

5 Gordon Freeman (Half-Life) Dr. Gordon Freeman is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Half-Life video game series, created by Gabe Newell and designed by Newell and Marc Laidlaw of Valve Corporation.

This man has no fear at all. He's just a regular scientist, but he was brave enough to fight his way to Lambda Core, even with the risk of death by HECUs and Xens.

He's not like any other scientists who just cry and wait for their death.

6 Leon S Kennedy (Resident Evil) Leon Scott Kennedy is a fictional character in the Resident Evil horror media franchise by Capcom. He debuted as one of the two playable protagonists of the video game Resident Evil 2.

The bravest man I have ever seen in my whole life. Like... how is he so fearless?

7 Isaac Clarke (Dead Space) Isaac Clarke is the main protagonist of the Dead Space franchise as an engineer worker who was a part of the emergency response unit of the USG Killian sent to investigate the USG Ishimura after losing contact with the crew members one of which was Isacc's girlfriend Nicole Brennan, upon their arrival... read more

Well, to say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Why is Isaac only 21st? Think about it, he should be number one. He went up against necromorphs to save all of mankind three times - three times!

People, really, all by himself up in space fighting to survive something that wants to tear your limbs off. Think about that and upvote Isaac now!

Even Link would become a crying child when faced with a regular necromorph. Necromorphs have speed and a hunter's intelligence. And with Isaac, the whole necromorph planet is nothing - a planet!

8 Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy) Cloud Strife is a fictional character and the main protagonist of Square Enix's 1997 role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII and several of its sequels and spin-offs.
9 Commander Shepard (Mass Effect) Commander Shepard is the player character in BioWare's Mass Effect game series: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3.
10 Solid Snake (Metal Gear) Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

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, the Metal Gear series is awesome. Need I say more?

The Contenders
11 Dante (Devil May Cry) Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.
12 Ryu (Street Fighter) Ryu is a video game player character created by Capcom, the protagonist of the Street Fighter series.
13 Strider Hiryu (Strider)
14 Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank) Ratchet is one of the protagonists of the Ratchet and Clank series developed by insomniac games as a playstation exclusive.

One badass furball. He has saved the universe so many times and fought some of the most dangerous foes ever. How can you not like him?

Ratchet saved the galaxy many times with only the help of a robot and his weaponry.

15 Alucard (Castlevania) Adrian Fahrenheit ČšepeČ™, better known as Alucard, is a character in Konami's Castlevania series of video games.

Alucard is literally the bravest character ever, and in Castlevania, he could also easily beat anyone else on the list.

16 Samus Aran (Metroid) Samus Aran is the protagonist of the science fiction action-adventure game series Metroid by Nintendo. A galactic bounty hunter, Samus is usually equipped with her Power Suit, giving her access to weapons she uses to battle her enemies.

I love her. She is so awesome! She looks way better without her suit, but the suit still has a lot of power.

17 Sora (Kingdom Hearts)

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

18 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.
19 Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed)
20 Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles) Shulk is a fictional character and the protagonist from Monolith Soft's 2010 role-playing video game Xenoblade Chronicles, part of their overarching Xeno series of video games.
21 Reyn (Xenoblade Chronicles)
22 Kratos (God of War) Kratos is a fictional character and the titular primary protagonist and anti-hero of the God of War video game series. He is a demi-god who seeks retribution and vengeance on Ares and later, the Greek Gods after he was betrayed and was forced to kill his family .

Kratos has gone up against Gods, Titans, and all sorts of monsters and creatures you can think of. He literally wiped out all of Greek and Norse mythology. He doesn't care about size, strength, or numbers. Kratos will approach and will not stop ever until you're dead.

He's not even afraid to die. He has literally said that death can have him when it earns him. That just shows he's already accepted it if it ever happens.

I don't care about the fact of him being afraid or not holding back from a fight now will change him and his relationship with Atreus and stuff like that. It doesn't matter because Kratos knows that if he's going up against someone that overpowers him, the only way to keep going is to not hold back and show everything he is, whether he likes it or not.

23 Jack (Bioshock)
24 Nathan Drake (Uncharted)

Nathan Drake should at least be in the top ten. The guy fought organizations of evil, pirates, mutants, and even giant snow demons! Lara Croft can't top that!

25 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 knew there would be a price for what he would do, even if he managed to do it.

A suicide mission, but an invincible love...

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