These are the characters from movies who truly stole the show in their respective movies.

The Top Ten

1 The Joker - The Dark Knight The Joker - The Dark Knight The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics .

Its no competition Heath Ledgers performance as the maniacal Joker not only stole the show but cemented Ledger as one of the greatest, Heath Ledger truly became The Joker every scene he's is in is just magic his portrayal of The Joker may never be surpassed. - egnomac

2 Genie - Aladdin Genie - Aladdin The Genie is a jinn appearing in the Aladdin franchise from Disney. He is never given a proper name. He was portrayed by Robin Williams in the first film.

While main characters Aladdin & Jasmine were good characters it was The Genie who stole the show considering he's voiced by none other than Robin Williams and the sequel Return of Jafar proved that no one but Robin Williams could pull off the character any better no offense to Dan Castellaneta but he was nowhere near to being what Williams was. - egnomac

3 Han Solo - Star Wars Han Solo - Star Wars Han Solo is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise, portrayed in films by Harrison Ford. In the original film trilogy, Han and his co-pilot, Chewbacca, become involved in the Rebel Alliance which opposes the Galactic Empire.

Luke Skywalker may be the hero but Han Solo really steals the show throughout the original trilogy and Harrison Ford would go onto other bigger roles though I can't say the same for the rest of the actors of the original franchise. - egnomac

4 Harley Quinn -Suicide Squad Harley Quinn -Suicide Squad Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.

The movie may have sucked but the one character that truly shined was Harley Quinn. - egnomac

5 Tallahassee - Zombieland
6 Hannibal Lecter - Silence of The Lambs Hannibal Lecter - Silence of The Lambs

The one character that everyone remembers the most about Silence of the Lambs its Anthony Hopkins creepy performance as Hannibal Lecter he was such a great character he eventually got his own sequel. - egnomac

7 Tommy DeVito - Goodfellas Tommy DeVito - Goodfellas

Joe Pesci was extraordinary in Goodfellas being the hot tempered gangster who flips out he even won the academy award for best supporting actor for the role. - egnomac

8 Hit Girl - Kick Ass Hit Girl - Kick Ass Hit-Girl is a fictional character appearing in the Kick-Ass series, published by Marvel Comics under the company's imprint Icon Comics.

If there was one character who ever deserved their own spin off movie it would have to be Hit Girl she has to be the most bad ass movie kid in history throughout the movie shes brutally killing off bad guys in the most gruesome fashion and boy did she ever had a mouth on her. - egnomac

9 Smokey - Friday

Smokey is what made Friday so hilarious every time he's on screen its comedy gold thanks to Chris Tuckers performance which was a real shame he never returned in the other sequels. - egnomac
