The Top Ten
One of the most iconic characters in all of fiction. Even after fifty years and dozens of renditions from numerous writers, the themes that we associate with batman such as self-improvement, trauma and the struggles of the human psyche, persists even today. With appearances ranging from video games to on-screen and novel appearances; batman's certainly has a profound effect on multi-media culture in general.
Because he's Batman.
He's just too awesome
Because... HE'S BATMAN!57 Comments
Forrest Gump is who I look to for inspiration.
A reminder that a simple man can do great things.
"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
This incredible movie shows that anyone could be anything. And Forrest Gump decided to do it all.4 Comments
Fell so hard for him I think I broke my ribs.
Voted Vader because I couldn't find Spock on the list...by the way both Vader and Anakin are on the list,the same person
Join the dark side
Vader is awesome.21 Comments
Only Heath Ledger though
Every great hero need a equally great villain as foil. The Joker is just that, but sometimes he transcends it and makes the entire circus revolve around himself. He is just that crazy. And awesome.
I'm not just limiting myself to the Heath Ledger Joker, which is, without doubt, the best Joker the silver screen has ever seen, but I'm also counting the Joker from the comics and even series and video games. - Nintendonix
Should be top 56 Comments
Spider-Man is actually a character to relate to, and #1 will soon be his. - sonictiger
1 will be his
The most-related superhero ever
The best14 Comments
For the love of God, Harry Potter is clearly a top choice. He's humble from the very beginning when Hagrid first told him that he was a wizard. He demonstrates love and compassion throughout the series, and has an innocence that is so pure he destroys Lord Voldemort. I worship him. I am his cult leader.
The most realistic by far!
I observed that in most books or movies, heroes are not complex characters, Harry was an exception. That's why most of the people can't understand the depth and complexity of this character54 Comments
Best superhero ever!
It's a me, Mario! - CrypticMemory
HE IS THE GREATEST
Yes! Mario is the glory of my life times infinity! Mario forever!22 Comments
Most relatable anime villain everyone. - ONEPUUUUNCH
I will always love SpongeBob always my friend and I are like obsessed with him. I will probably still watch it when am 99. I hope they never stop showing that show.
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! - Stephen2
He's got a cooler design than Mario.
I love all Links except for skyward sword and Cdi Link. He's so brave, modest, kind, and heroic. I wish I could be like Link. - Pinkarray
Link is so strong! In Skyward Sword, he defeated an entire army of bad guys, then defeated a demon right afterwards, and then defeated a god-like being right after that! In Ocarina of Time, he defeated Ganon after fighting of his minions and climbing his tower! In Majora's Mask, he stopped the moon from falling and defeated Majora's Mask. The best part is that he is a kid in all of these games. Link is also a silent protagonist, so his character is up to you to decide! Link is awesome!
He is really fun to play as in Zelda in smash bros and many other games. Link is one of the most Iconic characters of
All Time! His games are masterpiece He has the most iconic weapon in video game history the master sword slaying evil, saving the world. Maybe he can't talk but what makes him popular is that his adventures will never get old.
Gandalf, along with many other Tolkien characters deserves to be higher on this list. The very fact that superheroes are some of the first characters I see makes me sad and I almost laughed when I saw that there were anime characters even here at all. The very thought that the shallow characters are considered better than the likes of Tolkien's beautifully constructed Gandalf and Smeagol, and various other brilliant creations is a disgrace. Half of this page is made up of depthless and bromidic animated characters, which insults the human capability to be creative and the literary geniuses who brought us sucg well-crafted stories and most importantly the characters that came with them.
The defining fictional wizard, Dumbledore is a mere ripoff of him and still is a great character. Defines Lord of The Rings, him and Gollum are the best characters ever.
Gandalf was actually wise.
Yeah let's put harry on no. 1 because he's a wizard I mean he deserves a spot on the top ten but not no. One I personally think batman or Vader should be number one but I'm a Tolkien fanboy so whatever11 Comments
Especially great when you consider the lack of clothing she is often seen in.
She is amazing
SHE IS THE BOSS!
Best character ever
Goku is gifted, but Vegeta is more human when it comes to flaws and ambitions. Vegeta shows us what it means to be the 99 others out of the 100 trying to be the best, and how it transforms him into a matured and self sacrificing individual. Character depth and growth - amazing.
You can't even crack an egg without breaking it...wait...what?
He is the best1 Comment
Superman was created by Jewish boys who understood the importance of Moses in history -- and Moses himself being a foreshadowing of the central figure of Western Civilization: Jesus Christ. And so, Superman has many Christ-like qualities about him.
He is hope. He is light. He is the future, "The Man of Tomorrow".
All other superheroes are, in essence, descendants of him.
Superman is the head of the hierarchy of heroes.
The Man of Steel is a picture of what Humanity could be like if we got our act together and became a force for good.
Strip him of his superpowers and he is still Superman, in one sense, because it's his character that makes him a hero, not his abilities.
Many heroes and villains are capable of doing what Superman can do, but not all possess the heart of a hero as he does.
An alien. Born of another world. An outsider seeking the good of all, including his enemies. An outcast of both Krypton and of Earth, yet managing to be ...more
I feel like he doesn't get enough attention these days.
He's the Man of Steel!
Superman should be on the top spot, this List lost all it's credibility.9 Comments
Wonderful Character - SilverArcticWolf
Sherlock Holmes merits his place as the greatest fictional character ever if not for his wonderful character and intriguing mind, but for the impact he has had on pop culture and literature since his creation.
It all started with the classic detective stories by Conan Doyle. What continued from there was hundreds of versions of one man, always being his own.26 Comments
Bilbo Baggins was a mischief kid who grew up and thought "hey, I should get my head out of the clouds and be a normal hobbit." Then what happens? He meets the last dwarves with the birthright of Erebor, an elf-lord and an elf king, travels and fights alongside the wizard who would become the white rider, falls to the depths of a mountain and finds the most powerful ring in the world, meets one of the last living dragons and STEALS something from its hoard right under its nose, THEN he goes home and cherishes this story, I mean he tells EVERYONE who will listen because those were his best friends! And in the end he is the first hobbit to travel west across the great sea on an elven ship. Bilbo. For. The. Win.
He's a very friendly hobbit and I would get along with him well. His character development in the Hobbit is just amazing. - FrozenHatingPokefan
No hero starts out as a boring short man and turns into a bad ### warrior able to go toe to toe with the most powerful beings alive... except maybe captain America.
Yay! He's the nicest person ever! And he's heroic. I wish I could be friends with Bilbo.2 Comments
Most probably the best character ever to be created.
What a great dad! We should all try to be like Atticus Finch
Remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father's right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy... but sing their hearts out for us.
He is super funny and nice I just love his acting because it's so good
He needs to be higher
He's the bloody best
He is the greatest4 Comments
What's up doc?

How to make carrots:Cook carrots in a large pot of boiling water until tender. Drain off most of the liquid, leaving bottom of pan covered with water. Set the carrots aside.
Stir margarine and brown sugar into the water. Simmer and stir until the margarine melts. Return carrots to the pot, and toss to coat. Cover, and let sit for a few minutes to allow flavors to mingle. WE WANT CANDY IDIOTS
A childhood hero for 90s, 00s, and 10s kids.
Sonic is a blue hedgehog, which are naturally cool animals, can travel at the speed of sound, can curl into ball and destroy robots AND his adventures vary a running-fighting game to a sword fighting-runner game to a game where he basically gets super powers. THIS thing is the coolest video game character!
Actually his speed is unlimited hello the fastest thin alive - CaptainChipmunk
He will beat any video character definitely, Mario? Hmm... How about no supply?
SONIC is so great vote for him right now! ! He's the toughest character right?! !?!?25 Comments
He has been in more feature films than any other character and will kick King Kong's ass in the upcoming movie! Long live the King!
Screw all of the guys above him! Godzilla is the coolest! - Godzillaboy
Godzilla deserves #1 more than anybody else on this list! He more so much more respect, attention, and love than how much marvel, DC, and other popular fictional characters are taking away from him! He’s more important than most Godzilla lovers will ever think! - Godzillaboy
He's Awesome! The Greatest Movie Monster Ever!2 Comments
I am iron man he finally. Sacrifices in avengers end game. Spoiler alert. Sorry.
Iron man is the god of tech and most of all the most interesting character who can kill others will a cool. He and batman r the superheroes no one can ever touch.
Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist
He is Iron man.3 Comments
The all time greatest fictional martial artist that ever lived. Goku's tenacity makes him virtually unbeatable. On top of his super genius level fighting abilities, Goku is truly one of the nicest people you will ever meet. His best friends are Vegeta and Piccolo, and they both stared off hating his guts trying to kill him.
Without a doubt the greatest fictional character to ever be created. His story of coming from the most powerful slave race used by the universes ruler and tyrant frieza. He defeats frieza after becoming what only comes every hundred millenia, a super saiyan. Goku had a heart of gold so strong that he even tried to save frieza from himself in the end showing him mercy just as he does all his most evil enemies. Hands down the greatest story and character of all time.
He was second place in the worlds martial arts tournament after a close match, that lasted for hours, with the most powerful martial artist on the planet at the time. He was 12 when this happened. By the end of dragon ball z he was unbeatable, noble loving and willing to give his life in an instant in order to protect the people if the earth.19 Comments
GET OVER HERE...TO NUMBER ONE!
Kirby can inhale anything - paskah
Kirby is a sweet little puff ball who can kick your ass in 5 minutes flat. 10/10
Kirby is the cutest little thing!
Kirby can inhale anything even cocaine5 Comments
I am at a loss of words for this guy. He has surprised a plenty of times. He is not just the greatest detective and also the second and third best detective as well. I curse Light for getting him killed. He was simply too cool...
L is my biggest inspiration, he's actually taught me to be more objective and deductive, I really wish he was real :(
Seriously he should be higher than this!20 Comments
This & Mario should switch places at least, Luigi doesn't kill toads. - BlueSheepYT
He wins competitions by doing NOTHING, that's lit! - BlueSheepYT
Cute but weird
He is awesome and my bae...w
Easly the best
Funny, dumb, obviously the making of a good character
Frozen Is Completely Stupid. But I Have To Admit. Elsa Is Very Pretty. - 12cc
Are People This Stupid!?
Elsa Is Not Really The Best, But Still Passable
Makes me want to vomit hard, along with Mickey Mouse.
Who put this wierdo on the list? The Doctor or Lloyd Garmadon is not here but this person is?7 Comments
Yay Rainbow Dash! -Rainbowdash
I know a brony put her here! That's not me! - Neonco31

"A Man with Honor and Dignity.."
He is my fictional character
Best movie ever1 Comment
Aragorn can kill 1000 orcs in one battle, is one of the bravest men alive and is the king of Gondor. He should be no.10.
Never give up
Life long hero!
DA KING ONCE A STRIDER
Aragorn always has hope even in the darkest of times
Keepin' it real since 2001.
Hermione is the gorgeous embodiment of Gryffindor
I would give her my 9 3/4 anytime.
I voted for Harry, but I still think that Hermione deserves a higher spot on this list.7 Comments
Should be number one.
This doesn't count as a character alright?!?
HEY. RAPTOR! GET REXT!
Friend: so who's your favourite character is JP?
Friend: 0-0 O.O o...o ok... Mines Ellie.
Me: cool. :D.
Friend: yeah... Right...
He is the literally the most influential character in the history of animation
mickey should be no. 1 oldest character here - theferbinator
I used to love Mickey Mouse. But since Sonic came to our world, kids like him more!
Mickey Mouse is, without a doubt, one of the most
Important, influential and iconic characters ever. Some of the above character don't deserve their place on the list when Mickey is only 40.
Mickey was a lot more popular from 1928-1961 and from 2001-2004 but I love his movies such as the three musketeers1 Comment
How is he not in top ten!?!? - SilverArcticWolf
He is just awesome and the greatest soldier in earth and every other halo planet no one can kill him he would destroy in any other video game or movie
Should be in the top 10 now!
Yes! - Absol
Mewtwo is great
