Coolest Video Game Characters

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 dose not talk or really have a set personality, it's a shame because I always looked at Link like a character of his own. Oh! And by the way Link is not a mute he can talk no matter what anybody says.
I really wish they would put voice acting in these games, it would make them even more cool then they already are. And now a little something about Link, I like Link because...
1. He is the main character.
2. I like his hat.
3. I love his designs.
4. The way I see his personality, I love.
5. He cares about others.
6. I like his sword.
7. I love his determination.
8. He can be serious, and goofy.
9. He carries the burden of saving the world on his shoulders.
10. He's smart.
And over all just a really good character, some people just can't see this because he is only half a real character. Some still view him as an avatar, others view him as a character, so over time he became both.
And I hope that some day Link will get a real personality of his own.

2 Dante (Devil May Cry) Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.

I would vote for Snake, but Dante is WAY to low on this list. All you have to do is look at him and you know he's bad ass. He's a devil hunter with a sword, guns, red trench coat and white hair, and he's a demon! He taunts enemies quadruple the size of him then proceeds to whop their ass. Every line he says in 1,3, & 4 is cool, his overall style, mannerisms and demeanor are cool. He's just a cool guy!

My childhood. He may be cheesy but he's the coolest out there. Being top two and above would be an insult. He does almost everything stylish. His cockiness, taunting even the biggest demon and kicking its ass with them SSStylish combos makes him badass.

He is the like one of the best video game characters of all time, he deserves a higher rank on this list.

3 Master Chief (Halo Series) 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.

People say Kirby is the most powerful video game character and he is not! Kirby fell from space, so has master chief, Twice! Kirby defeated army's of marshmallows, master chief defeated: the biggest alien army known to gaming, a race of space parasites that threatens life itself, and an army soldiers made of LIGHT led by one of the very beings that the alien army worships!

One of the most iconic figures in gaming history indisputably. Wear's titanium alloy power armor, has access to a variety of of weapons and vehicles, against all odds took down a multi-species alien empire by inciting a rebellion, blew up not one but two giant super weapons and one giant alien space city, has racked up an impressive kill count (especially if you count High Charity and the two Halo rings) Could probably destroy every other character on this list no problem. He is by far the coolest character EVER!

4 Zero (Mega Man X)
5 Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid) 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.

Lets face it we all want a voice as cool as snake's, we all want a cool name like Snake and we all want to look like snake.

Coolest character in gaming history.

He's pretty darn awesome

6 Ryu (Street Fighter) Ryu is a video game player character created by Capcom, the protagonist of the Street Fighter series.
7 Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed)

He deserves #1. All his Italian accent, the cape, the hood, The heroic mix of Personality as playboy, Assasin, warrior, brawler, leader. He his the COOLEST

Simply the coolest video game character of all time
Requiescat en pace

8 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.

Leon deserves to be at least in the top 5 because he is in my opinion is the most coolest and handsome looking character ever made in gaming history.

Where did everybody go? Bingo?!

Best Character from capcom!

9 Johnny Gat (Saints Row)

Badass. He is referred to as "the most dangerous man alive" in one of the Saints Row games. Gat went to hell, learned to fly, killed satan, and was respected by god so much that god granted him 1 wish. Hands down one of the most badass characters I have ever seen.

10 Scorpion (Mortal Kombat) Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. His debut is in the first Mortal Kombat game.

My favorite characters are Trevor Phillips, Altair, Kratos, John Marston, master chief, nathan drake, joel, Solid Snake and vaas but Scorpion takes it all. He's such a boss.

Scorpion for the win

The Contenders
11 Kos-Mos (XenoSaga) KOS-MOS is a fictional character from the Xenosaga role-playing video game series by Monolith Soft and Bandai Namco Entertainment.
12 Lin (Saints Row)
13 Big Daddy (Bioshock)
14 Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

Lara Croft is like the most badass and coolest female video game character of all time. She deserves to be at least in the top 10 in this list.

15 Samus (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.
16 Max Payne (Max Payne Series)

Max Payne kills bastards in slow motion or "bullet time" and he can also kill an entire army of bastards by himself.

Most notorious video game anti-hero.

Max Payne's Bullet Time is cool.

17 Albert Wesker (Resident Evil Series)

7 Minutes, 7 Minutes is all the time I have to play with you.

18 Ken (Street Fighter)
19 Freddy Fazbear (FNAF) Freddy Fazbear (originally known as Freddybear, as seen in the Kickstarter) is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

He is awesome

20 Mario (Mario Brothers) 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 few exceptions including New Super Luigi U, Luigi's Mansion games, Yoshi's Island games, and similar counterparts. He is the most iconic character in video game history and is Nintendo's unofficial mascot. His franchise has grown to be the most successful video game franchise of all time.

Snake is overrated and overloved. Mario is classic but still overloved

21 Guile (Street Fighter) Guile is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. He debuted as one of the original eight characters in 1991's Street Fighter II and appeared in the game's subsequent updates.
22 Tanya Winters (Saints Row)
23 Duke Nukem
24 Altair (Assassin's Creed)

More cold, efficient, and focused than Ezio, making him an imposing character and a ruthless killer.

25 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 .

Kartos is awesome in god of war 3
ENGAGE in brutal combat using devastating new weapons attack moves and godlike powers.

Strongest mortal in the world and deserves to be #1!
