Top 10 Most Iconic Fictional Characters of All Time
Ome of the best of animation
2nd? What's up doc?
Ha Hey, Everybody! It’s me, Mickey Mouse! Say, you wanna come inside my clubhouse? Whoops wrong topic... Mickey Mouse himself was the golden age for most grandparents as kids! He was the one who pretty much planted had the ideas for Jerry, and Bugs in their creators’ heads. A talking mouse that’s oversized and sings and dances, how is that not ironc?
He was the Second Cartoon Character to ever be made, and he's still around now, he's so Iconic.
Hey everybody it's me Mickey Mouse I'm a mascot for an evil organisation
He is the mascot of one of the largest movie making companies.
It doesn't matter who the actor is, who the writer is, how bad some people could ruin his comics or movies, it doesn't change the fact that HE'S BATMAN! He is ALWAYS be great in all media: comics, movies, T.V. series, animated series, animated movies, video games, with dozens of different incarnations...
Be it comics, T.V., video games, or movies, Batman will always be one of the first characters to come to mind.
Er... why is Forrest Gump #1? More people know of Bats than Gump.
He is amazing at acrobatics and gymnastics
He's SUPERMAN! Easily the most iconic character. And to prove it, I'll compare him with the ones currently above him.
Superman (5th) VS Batman (4th): The two big DC superheroes. Superman is more iconic, however, as he kickstarted the superhero genre. Without Superman Batman would not exist.
Superman (5th) VS Mickey Mouse (3rd): Probably the closest comparison here. I'm giving this to Superman by a hair, because of what Mickey has become. These days he's mostly thought of as a commercial mascot, with most people having never seen a single one of his cartoons. Superman's comics are more read worldwide.
Superman (5th) VS Bugs Bunny (2nd): Now, I like Bugs better than Superman, but is he more iconic? No. Bugs is a close number two to Mickey in terms of cartoon fame, and as we've already proven Superman is more iconic than Mickey, he is more iconic than Bugs Bunny.
Superman (5th) VS Forrest Gump (1st):...Excuse me while I laugh. Forrest Gump is considered iconic? I suppose his ...more
He's the most iconic fictional character in my opinion. Almost everyone around the world knows who Superman is and what he represents.
Superman is THE reason why modern superheroes exist. He's become the blueprint of establing a modern reconstruction of mythological heroes, with odes from Hercales, Thesus and many others.
On normal circumstances, I'm not Superman's biggest fan, but he kick-started superhero cinema.
When you ask what’s a character everyone knows, it has to be the man himself Vader. I love almost all the characters on this list, but I everyone who ever read this list knows who this badass is.
Team Vader! Also, why is Forrest Gump 1st? I mean, I get that he's a good character, but he's not really that iconic, honestly.
How is this not #1? He is the best!
Darth Vader is da best boi
MARIO WILL NEVER DIE!
Mario is definitely iconic. People of all ages most likely know Mario. He's one of the best-selling video games of all time, with a TV show to boot.
Relevant in the 90s, relevant now, relevant forever. That's Mario.
More people in the 90s knew who mario was more than mickey
He has best video game all time
Good grief. He's like 70 years old. Several generations know of Charlie Brown.
I don’t see how Forrest Gump is number one.
Edit: actually, I do see how, he was clearly started off in first on this list, which gives him an unfair advantage
It should be the best but maybe Sherlock Homes is better dunno little confused between these two
I don’t know how you couldn’t put Harry on the top ten. Every person in the world knows his name and face! Guinness world records said that the movies did better than any other movie series except for perhaps Marvel! IT DID BETTER THAN JAMES BOND! AND JAMES BOND HAD 22 MOVIES! THE BOY WHO LIVED DESERVES MORE RESPECT!
HOW DARE YOU! Harry should be 1! Seriously, TWELVE?!?!?! How much could you learn from our dear Harry? I cannot believe what you are saying!?! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME!
DID YOU EVEN KNOW THAT THE HARRY POTTER SERIES ACTUALLY BROUGHT EVERYONE OUT OF THESE ACTION MOVIES AND VIDEO GAMES AND INTO THESE WONDERFUL THINGS WE CALL BOOKS!?!
Not a big fan but he is surely more iconic than Charlie Brown.
His name and suit say everything!
If batman and superman made it to the top 5 then spiderman should at the very least be in the top 10.He is the one that created the term relatable superhero
Spider-Man should definitely be wayyy higher than this. maybe passing Superman AND Batman. no offense, but like... it's pretty obvious. This is obviously outdated.
Spider-man is relatable to anyone without the costume he is still peter parker. normal people issues and stuff
Spider-Man should definitely be higher
Around 99% percent of people know who pikachu is
Pokemon is highest grossing series
Pikachu should be higher
Everyone who knows of Batman knows the Joker.
Why so serious?!
Heathe ledger joker
No #3 behind only Superman and Mickey mouse Superman is the stand of movies Mickey mouse is the standard of cartoons and Goku is the standard of anime
Goku is iconic, but is he really more iconic to everyone in the world, more than: Jason voorhees, Scooby-Doo, Iron Man, Pac-Man, the Hulk, Optimus Prime, and the Joker?...Don't think so.
DBZ is translated in dozens of languages... that'll give u an idea
Dbz made anime more popular in the usa and europe it's the most translated anime in the world besides probably pokemon one piece naruto and bleach and one punch man was inspired by dbz
He was part of the best film decision ever, Depp played Sparrow perfectly. And Sparrow is the perfect character...
You'll remember as the day when you almost got captain Jack sparrow on top!
Word no 1famous character
I don't care if its shown negatively, I love daffy..
Yoda is an absolute G.
The most iconic character ever in my opinion, she has such an emotional story line and the more stranger things grows the more people will agree
I'm sorry, but if you are any bit cultured, you know who Rocky Balboa is, and know his famous quotes that are on par with "With great power comes great responsibility". Rocky Balboa is a pillar of Hollywood.
Who doesn't know this character?
