The Top Ten

Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

If anyone deserves to be in the Video Game Hall of fame it should be Mario he single handily pulled the entire video game industry off life support following the video game crash of 1983. - egnomac

Mario made video games popular. Mario saved the video game industry. Not even the legend of Zelda could do that.

A cold-blooded Irish professional assassin, Nina made her first appearance in Tekken, the original game in the series She is one of four playable characters to appear in all main installments in the series and the only more.

She is always credited as one if not the hottest female videogame character. Death by Degrees was not a really good game, however, to get her own game is a great performance for a fighting game character, how did she manage to stand out Tekken roster? - Toshin

3 Link (The Legend of Zelda Series) Link (The Legend of Zelda Series) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Why is Link always 2nd to Mario? Link is a much better hero. Mario IS A SOCIOPATH, proven by GAME THEORY. Look it up.

Somebody is a much better hero then Mario,but definitely not link,it's sonic

You may have low points, old friend (looking at you Secret of the Rings and Genesis port to GBA), but you will always be one of my favorites.

Screw the haters Sonic is awesome! - Chaotixhero

Love him and his series. Same with Mario - DCfnaf

8 Master Chief (Halo) Master Chief (Halo) MCPON John-117, or "Master Chief", is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Halo fictional universe created by Bungie.

Quite mad that Master Chief isn't higher up. He saved the human race 4 times and what does he get? Being placed at number 8...

Revolutionized first-person shooters - without Halo, there Call of Duty would just have guns. Plus he's a boss

He saved the human race from total destruction from the Covenant! And why is Cheif only at 9? All Mario did was save some princess who shouldn't be saved at all.

9 Luigi (Mario Series)

The best video game character ever, how is luigi not in the top ten, he's awesome, funny and no one can ask for a better sidekick

Luigi's swimming in riches luigi's mansion

13 Shadow the Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Shadow the Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

Amazing and still epic even though the (there's good Shadow fans and bad Shadow fans) bad fans have been ruining him ever since his debut in SA2. He's just 2 swag. Still going strong after a while of being paired with stupid oc's.

14 Clementine (The Walking Dead)
