1 Link - The Legend of Zelda
Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.
How is Link beaten by Yoshi, Kirby, and Donkey Kong... I really don't understand. Link is THE hero of Nintendo... An honest-to-goddesses hero. Completely selfless and doesn't even say a word, or expect anything in return. Honestly now, when you picture the knight in shining armor, do you see a cartoony dinosaur? A pink ball with a face? A banana-obsessed gorilla with a tie? Well personally, I can only imagine Link.
As we saw in ocarina of time, link can lift incredible things, and as we saw in every other game, he's an incredibly competent all around fighter, bows, swords, even boomerangs. He can fly, as seen in wind waker, can sail a boat, run a train, ride a horse, if one hero can do that many things and still fight monsters such as Demise(a beast) volvagia, Gohma, and etc? How can he be any less than the best?!
Dude why is Link not first? He's the only TRUE hero, in fact, basically his whole existence in each timeline is based on the fact that he is THE HERO that will save the whole frikin world! Hero of Time, Hero of Winds, Hero Chosen by the Goddesses, Hylia's Chosen Hero, the list is endless! Link has the true heart of a hero, he most ALWAYS is risking his life for other people, whereas other characters might have something in it for themselves. It is ridiculous that Link isn't even second or third.
REALLY LINKS THE BOSS. WITH HIS BOW SWORD AND OTHER WEAPONS. HE WOULD DESTROY YOSHI Mario SONIC KIRBY AND EVEN SLICE THOMAS THE TRAIN IN HALF. IF YOU SAW HIM MAKING THAT MISUNDERSTANDING WITH Mario IN SMASH BROS BRAWL YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING THE CRUSHING BLOW WOULD HAVE ENDED Mario AND HE WOULD BE AT LEAST ONE SPOT UP ON THIS LIST. VOTE FOR LINK OR DO NOT VOTE AT ALL!

Jammer196, thomas is not a Nintendo hero. He's a childrens show hero. AND HE IS NOT COOL COMPARED TO KIRBY
He's so cute and good hearted. He always wants to help every one he meets and he's also the super tuff pink puff.

4 Yoshi - Super Mario
Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.
In his own series, his background was fully developed. He was a young dinosaur who found a baby who would later become a hero, and he insisted he and his clan will find his brother from their archenemies: Bowser, and Kamek, and return them to their rightful parents multiple times. Yoshi saved two iconic babies. He deserves to be the number 1 hero.
Yoshi is the best video game character. He is SO much better than all of the Sonic characters combined.
