Top Ten Best Heroes in Fictional Literature

Every book has a hero (or multiple, often,) but who's the best? (Please don't be a wise guy and submit Jesus, God, or any character you don't believe in, but is considered real by many. Also, please don't submit the latter, and submit Satan or his equivalent in your religion if you're a Buddhist, Pagan, and so on.)

The Top Ten

Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

I considered putting him behind Connor, but I kind of know that's a lost cause, considering Percy is ranked as #1 in almost every book character list, and if this list gets anywhere as popular as those, Percy would be at #1 again. - HaiThere

Connor Lassiter (Unwind Dystology)
Risa Ward (Unwind Dystology)

Risa is a likable character who's more down to earth than Katniss or Tris are. She's not a revolutionary, but she is basically Connor's partner in crime - HaiThere

Finn (Incarceron)

If I thought Connor, Risa, and all the other Unwind characters were unpopular, it's nothing compared to the characters from Incarceron. Finn is used in that guessing app, Akinator barely more than 700 times. The other characters are even less. Don't vote for them if you don't want to, but at least read the first book. Catherine Fisher is a good author. - HaiThere

Leo Valdez (Heroes of Olympus) Leo Valdez is a character from the book series Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. He is one of the seven heroes in the Prophecy of Seven. He is a Greek demigod and is the son of Hephaestus, and has the ability to create and manipulate fire (pyrokinesis).


Lev Calder (Unwind Dystology)

Lev is likable but changes a lot. - HaiThere

Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) Annabeth Chase is a daughter of Athena and one of the main characters of both the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series. She's also Percy Jackson's girlfriend and has no particular powers aside from her brains and tactics.
Jared Sapiens (Incarceron)

Jared was put after Annabeth, (subconsciously) because they're cut out of the same cloth. But he's not a fighter. - HaiThere

Attia (Incarceron)
Firestar (Warrior cats)

So...I still haven't read the Warrior Cats books since elementary school, but even though I still don't have the slightest idea how Firestar is a hero, Jason always felt like a Percy 2.0, minus the sense of humor, so consider this vote a gift from me to you.

Quite a heroic cat


The Contenders

Jason Grace (The Heroes of Olympus)
Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher)
Tom Sawyer (Adventures of Tom Sawyer)

Definitely a different type of "hero" as a pose to Percy, Connor, Harry, and the rest of them, but a hero nonetheless.

Samirah al Abbas (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard)

The best character from Magnus Chase & the Gods of Asgard. Including the title character

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.
Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games) Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. She is portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation franchise.
Jack Reacher (Jack Reacher)
Hazel Levesque (The Heroes of Olympus)
Piper McLean (Percy Jackson)
Nico Di Angelo (Percy Jackson & the Olympians)
