The Top Ten Top Most Iconic Video Game Characters
Since 1981 Mario Has always Been The Best Gaming Character Ever, With A Wide Variety of Gameplay, and Lots Of Unique Power-ups that Make The Game Really Fun and Playable, From The Early Days Of Jumping Over Barrels To The Days Of Defeating Bowser In Space, Mario Has Finally Proved Himself Good For Number One.
Listen Mario is the most iconic video game character of all time and that's a fact. - Aidanisawesome
He's-a-Mario. Why would he not be number one? He is Nintendo, one of the companies with the most video game franchises's mascot after all.
Mario will always be the king of gaming even if they do discontinue the franchise one day.
Sonic, The Fast Speedy Blue Hedgehog is The Fastest Game Character Ever, And Has Had More Various Incarnations Then Any Other Video Game Character, Sonic's Popularity Has Lead To Fan Creations and Even Game Mods, Sonic Was 1991's Greatest Mascot and Since Has Become SEGA's Crowning Achievement, He's Even Crossed Over With Mario and Other Video Game Legends In Super Smash Bros Brawl.
Sonic the hedgehog outranked Mario in the 8eight and 16 bit eras. Also he had more game related animations than Mario, most that turn out easier to enjoy, two longer running related game related comic book series that were good to read, better retro games, better online games even if he has one less than Mario, more abilities, a better hero, a genius sidekick, more skills, doesn't usually need weapons, smarter, has more fan fictions and fan art. In fact, the only thing that Sonic couldn't match up Mario to is the 64 bit era. - Infosreatcher
I grew up with sonic and I say I love him! If they hadn't changed the way he looked for 2014 sonic boom, he'd be number one! But sega decided to change him the way NOBODY wanted
On the run since 1991, baby! Sonic is the fastest superhero in any universe!
Link Is One Of The Most Popular Video Game Characters In History And Is Still Famous Today, And Is The Elf Fighter of Hyrule, Link's Variations In Games Have Gone Further From Sprite To CGI, And Also Had His Own Cartoon Series, The Legend of Zelda Is The Most Popular Game Of the 2000s and Link Has Appeared Almost In Every Gaming System Since Atari.
According to Shigeru Miyamoto, Young Link is 9 years old. I think that makes him the youngest Nintendo hero. At 9 years old, he saved Termina and began his journey to save Hyrule.
Not t be rude but... He's not a elf.
He's a hylian. - aarond90
In my opinion, Link should be up at 1st place. "Why? " you may ask.. Well the very first video game I've ever played was : The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time, followed by Star Fox, then Super Mario World. Well even though Mario is like, the icon of Nintendo, Link has always been my hero in video games. Also, with "LoZ : Breath of the Wild" now out, the game brought me back to when I was little, with beautfil graphics, good story and interesting gameplay, I think the Hero of Nintendo should be up in 1st place.
Halo Was The most Poplar Game That Everyone Wanted And It Was Only Matched By The Tech Power of Master Chief, Master Chief Is The Game's Main Antagonist And The Weapons Master That Has More Fighting Experience Then Almost Any Other Gaming Character, In Addition He's Super Strong And Can Flip Over a Tank Without Breaking a Sweat.
He's the main hero not the villian
Master Chief is my waifu - HaloFanboy
The First Gaming Character Ever Created Was Pacman Way Back in 1980, Pacman Was The Yellow Ball Eating Pellets and Devouring Ghost, Pacman Was A Legacy That Even Elders Enjoyed Playing And Was The Most Popular Game In The Arcade, He Had Sequels By Atari And a Spin-Off Game, He's Also Appearing In Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Takes A Cool New Form.
I think he should be at 1 or 2. Who hasn't heard of Pacman?
This is one of the big 3 - shawnmccaul22
Actually,he’s supposed to be at number 3
As a girl gamer, I feel that Lord Kratos should be number 1
No Kratos will never be more iconic than Mario. I'm sorry but that's just a fact. Deal with it - Aidanisawesome
How is he not in the top 10? I am 16 and I've known him ever since twinsanity and I love him like family. - EJ0602
