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.

A reminder that a simple man can do great things.

This should be number 1 or 2. At least.

If in reality, would be the most strange but most interesting person on earth

HELL YEAH! FORREST IS THE BEST!

2 Batman Batman Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27. In film, he has been portrayed by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, ...read more.

Batman has wings that when drops in on, they fold to capture the particular issue. Glides and climbs with a grappling hook at high areas of the realm. It is beautiful to see Batman or something similar to the Hero in question perform those surprise deeds. A true 'Cape Crusader' and light as a Paladin into the Darkness thwarting it for glory and perhaps charm striving for a better zone in time and space for self and those dear to Batman. - iliescu

Bruce Wayne, the most dangerous man on earth for sure. HE AND TONY STARK CAN RULE THE WORLD IF THEY WANT.

Come on. He's Batman for crying out loud! "I am vengeance, I am the night, I AM BATMAN! "

Everyone loves Batman. How can you not?
He's rich, he's complex, and he beats up criminals so no child has to lose their family the way he did.

3 Harry Potter Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

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.

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 character

Harry Potter is the single most influential character on the children of an entire generation, their parents, and their kids after them. If the question is, is Harry Potter still relevant "after all this time", my answer to you is "Always".

I like it so much.

Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

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

Only Heath Ledger Joker is the best. Jared Leto tries too hard. Why so serious

Should be top 5

Mario is the greatest video game character of all time. He saved the video game industry and made video games popular. VOTE FOR Mario. HE IS THE GREATEST.

The best dang plumber in the mushroom kingdom! He can collect different kinds of suits and power-ups and has an awesome, cheery personality!

Either he is very strong because he can kill by jumping or his enemies are very weak. Either way, he made video games great again and is now the pacman of Nintendo. - Skullkid755

It's a him! Mario!

8 Link - The Legend of Zelda Link - The Legend of Zelda Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

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.

All these other heroes have distinct personalities. Link does not. Link is your own special personality. The greatest hero of all time is you! That is an idea worthy of higher rank.

I love link. he is the best character on this list!

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.

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 whatever

A powerful wizard, a well- developed character, and an incarnate demigod who faces fire demons... what's not to love?

Gandalf was actually wise.

11 Sherlock Holmes Sherlock Holmes

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.

Yes, yes, a hundred times yes. I swear, Holmes should at least be number two! I mean, look at what the readers did when Conan Doyle killed him off way back in the 1800s! If a character is adored to the point that the readers don't shut up until the author resurrects them, that's a huge honor.

All of his books are great, and he is considered the greatest detective of all time. He deserves at least top 5, because of his importance and his charism.

15 Vegeta Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

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.

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.

One word of advice, if he offers to show you his precious, run.
