32 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic is not underrated. Whoever putted sonic on there doesn't really like him.

Sonic The Hedgehog(Himself) is Kind of Overrated But Not Underrated Because His Retarded Fanbase Bashing Various Nintendo Characters For Being One Dimensional or Something In Their Opinion.(Also He is More Overrated Than Shadow The Hedgehog)

Sonic The Hedgehog(Himself) is Also Decent Character But Not The Best

His games are kickass... but his fans ruined him. I love Sonic, and I am beyond disappointed that his fans are a huge steaming pile

33 Earthworm Jim Earthworm Jim Earthworm Jim is the main protagonist of the Earthwork Jim video game series as a worm who's life changed after coming in contact with a cyber suit that granted him special powers to battle the likes of his nemesis like Evil the Cat, Psycrow, Queen Slug for a Butt and Bob the Killer Gold FIsh, in the more.

Why Isn't he number 1? - HaloFanboy

Asgore is the portrayed main antagonist who plans to acquire seven human souls and use their power to break the barrier that seals the monsters underground . Aspects of his character are hinted more.

I don't think Asgore gets enough love. Inside his heart, I believe he is a kind person, and when you go the pacifist route, I think he's a good person that wants his kingdom safe

50 Samus Samus Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.
