Top Ten Video Game Characters

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Ellie (The Last Of Us) Ellie (The Last Of Us)

Ellie taught me how to be brave. She taught me that no matter how miserable our life's are, there is always something that keeps us going. Something to fight for. Something that's worth for living. For me she is this one character that I care about. Ellie was a girl that never asked for anything. Even though she was the girl that deserved everything.

Not even words can describe how awesome Ellie is. She is probably my favourite fictional character of all time. Ellie is brave beyond everything, determined, funny, sarcastic, and strangely optimistic, even though she basically lives through hell. It is physically impossible to play the whole game and not completely love Ellie with all your heart by the end of it. Every single one of her lines are so quotable. Not to mention, all this and she's only fourteen!

The definition of a teenage badass, and immune to zombies! I'm 14, and if someone wanted to take me over halfway across the country on foot during a zombie apocalypse with a complete stranger, I'd be like "HELL NO! " But Ellie just went with it. That girl deserves everything. Not to mention she had all the funny lines.

I love Ellie so much. I remember the first time I played The Last of Us, and as soon as Ellie came into the game it became even better. Unlike most characters these days, Ellie feels relatable and not just a one sided character. She's not the best at everything, but she's not helpless, she makes mistakes just as any human does, but she's still so flip'n epic.
Thank you Naughty Dog for making an awesome video game character.

22 Big Boss aka Naked Snake (Metal Gear Solid 3)

The one who made it possible to create some of the greatest soldiers ever. In his prime he would have kicked Solid Snake's ass. His story is deeper and a lot more tragic as well.

I see yoshi in the top 15 but not big boss

Snake is just so great in all different way's I definitely prefer him better than solid snake. Because he's way funnier, he was the first to save the world before snake, he eats basically anything, he invented CQC, he smokes cigars and he created the MSF and diamond dogs. Also without him Metal Gear Solid wouldn't even exist. Also he fultons people and you know how fun that is.

Solid snake is no more than a clone of the "Best soldier of thz 20th century, He was the one that developped the CQC with the boss and the one who had the hardest past, Solid, Liquid or Solidus doesn'tstand a chance against him. He deserve waay better than this rank...

23 Megaman

He's certainly iconic, he's right up there with Mario, Sonic and Pacman, speaking of which, Is Pacman on here at all?

Come on! Its Megaman, What The HELL!

Come on megaman is like sonic the hedgehog anime series against evil man with robot army's he should at least be number 7 replacing that assassin creed dude or whatever he is

This guy is awesome iconic like pac man mario and sonic

24 Niko Bellic (Grand Theft Auto IV) Niko Bellic (Grand Theft Auto IV)

Niko Bellic is my favorite Grand Theft Auto character ever... Niko my cousin lets go to the top - OreSama

The only character in the series with a real personality that doesn't want to live in the world of Grand Theft Auto it was sucked into, and had a story that doesn't involve pointless murder, but instead doing what he need to finally be free of his past.

My favorite character of all time and my favorite single player experience was from Grand Theft Auto IV. If that game and story had any other main character it would have failed. Niko made that story work and also thrive.

"Niko, it's Roman! Let's go bowling! "

I'd rather see Roman up here. - mattstat716

25 Commander Shepard (Mass Effect 2)

Commander Shepard is one of the greatest soldier characters devised in gaming. A master chief in his own right. Saving the galaxy and proving himself to be one of the most elite leaders conceivable while still being realistic and relative; no gimmicky super power armor or superhuman implants for this guy, but still an all around hero.

Commander Shepard, three-time savior of the galaxy, all-around badass and hero/antihero, is at the 41st spot? That's insane. And the #1 spot is taken by Mario, a plumber whose claim to fame is jumping on people"s heads and trying to save a single person... Really?

Deserves to be up higher, at least the top ten. He and his squad has saved the world on a galactic scale. Plus the game offers a great story and is a top RPG.

She is an awesome character! Sarcastic and badass.

26 Scorpion (Mortal Kombat) Scorpion (Mortal Kombat) Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.

A ninja from the Shrai Ryu with his family taken away from him by a doppelganger of one of his rivals. "Hanzo is dead I am Scorpion! " yes he awaits the day for vengeance in tournament itself challenging people and using his most famous quote to kill people "get over here" sorry I can't type everything I'm on my phone in the middle of the night

Remember in Deception when it turned out he was the chosen warrior of the Elder Gods and RIPPED OPEN THE DRAGON KING ONAGA'S BODY OPEN AND JUMPED THROUGH IT

Let me say that Mortal Kombat started with scorpion! I wonder, did the maker of this game had ever been bitten by a scorpion. If yes, it explains everything. Lol. - EdwardSim

He is allsome

27 Max Payne (Max Payne Series)

"It's a snowy day, I was looking for my laptop in the reflection of myself, and then I found her, at 30th,...
My heart's broken. Like a fallen angle..."

Sounds pretty awesome, don't you think? A man who has a bloody past, telling his story and shooting guys in bullet-time... Even Neo can't be cooler... And yes, a plumber defeated him...

He should be in the top 5! He is such an epic person! Lara croft is an idiot going around here!

He's just a completely cool badass who is able to speak poetry and kill bastards at the same time

The closest gloomy story psychotic bad a s, s in video games u can play as.

28 Altair (Assassin's Creed)

Altair should be second on this list. And Ezio should be the first. Assassins Creed isn't like any other game... Its an epic in itself..

Yeah I think He and Ezio should be at the top they are like the most popular assassins out I mean everybody loves dark figures in the hoodie

Ezio is a Marty Stu, that's it.
Sure, Altair doesn't have much of a personality in AC1 because at the time Ubisoft didn't know what to do that's why the first game wasn't as good as the other games, not to mention the terrible American voice BUT believe or not he was more human than Ezio, how? Well, he made a lot of mistakes and got punished, Ezio, on the other hand, is worshipped by the other characters, causes a disaster, surprise! You are our mentor!
Also, the codex pages reveal another side of him, his emotions, his thoughts and that he was an artist.
Ubisoft did know that they made terrible mistakes with him, that's why they finally made things right, they gave him a perfect accent and a great leader's personality. I don't care if Ezio was more "charming" and had a sense of humor, Altair rebuilt the Order, spread it, killed Genghis Khan, had the apple for over 60 years without allowing it to currupt him, invented many weapons including the hidden gun, all while raising a ...more

The words can't say anything if play with this character you will see

29 Spyro (Spyro Series) Spyro (Spyro Series) Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.

The purple dragon of fun-loving adventure.

Spyro is just awesome. Headstrong attitude and cool looking. Just play his first 3 games. Sad how Insomniac Games gave him up and all these other guys are abusing him.

Spyro is often overlooked. Which is sad. Although he only has two attacks, they provide use of comman sense in his games. Which is to me one of the reasons why spyro is so great.

All day every day; should be first.

30 Clementine (The Walking Dead)

Should be way higher. At least in the top 20. She's been in situations that would make grown men wet themselves. Way badass.

Almost as good as a charge yet as Lee, this was without doubt my favorite supporting character from the first game, and is doing a great job in the lead role in the second.

Cutest video game character there is especially when around lee - Red26473

I prefer Kenny

31 Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect)

For me, Garrus is number one. He is a walking contradiction and a perfect representation for the mess in our heads and trying to keep sane. He is an amazing lover (if you want him to be), even a better friend and the best companion a game has ever seen. Also he's a great calibrator.

Why the hell is garrus below Ellie from the last of us?

Why is Garrus not right up there with Shepard?

32 Bowser (Mario Series) Bowser (Mario Series) Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

Bowser, he is a turtle and dragon combined he sucks at stealing princesses and is terrible at killing plumbers. However there are those times where Bowser is victorious (kinda), when Mario runs out of lives!

108, seriously. I love Tails and I think he should be up there, but Bowser 150% should be at least the best villain. He's Bowser! come on!

Pac-Man (6'2") saves Amy Rose (5'10") from King Bowser (8'8") whom Proto-Man (6'7") makes fun of while supporting him.

Bowser is both dark, and funny, ex remember in galaxy he had a reacter and plan to destroy the universe, he was awesome, and other example, mario and luigi series, they say sonic games are funnier? then they should play superstar saga.

33 Princess Peach (Mario series) Princess Peach (Mario series) Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in ...read more.

He'll no! She's bossy, ungrateful, overrated supremely annoying, graceless, not elite enough for her tall height, spoiled, stubborn & temperamental. I would put her in my video game franchise, but she is so obsessed with females & unfortunately, she has appeared the most out of any other female video game character in video gaming history, which I moderately deny.

Stop hating, if it wasn't for peach there wouldn't be a story for the game, she is a crucial character for the games. Look at it this way she hasn't been kidnapped for like 3 years or more now, she takes a more lead role as a main playable character these days instead of being the main support character which I really love! GOD SAVE THE PRINCESS!

Why does everyone hate her? No really just wondering? I mean she is the reason most of the games happen and she's not overrated because everyone here hates her! - DCfnaf

Although we don't see her much as she gets kidnapped every twenty seconds, she's actually a sweet and friendly character, play SSBB and you'll know

34 Brenda Carlton (Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes)
35 Captain Price (Modern Warfare 1,2) Captain Price (Modern Warfare 1,2)

The Man, The Captain, The Leader, The Myth, The LEGEND! Captain Price is one of biggest badasses in Video Game history and the greatest character in Call of Duty history. He's always there to answer the call of duty and should be at least in the top 20

What I mean character like lara croft who just jumps on the rope like money is in top ten and the noblest captain price us stands on 19th well I salute developers of Call of Duty for this magical character

Just best of the best. Better then chuck norris anyways.
Before sleeping, chuck is first looking for this man in his closet and under his bed

Captain Price... I think he is the best character of Call of Duty series man. Old, Experinced, Betrayed, But still strong. And his speeches, legend. That is Captain Price. MW ends, Call of Duty dies.

"A healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is his last day on earth. But I think that's a luxury, Not a curse." - Fedai

36 Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)

Elizabeth is one of the best looking females I've seen in gaming, she is truly a girl who makes a emotional bound between a gamer and herself.

Oh come on! She is PERFECT in every reality! This lady is adorable, tough, brave and kind. She is such a great character from such a great game

The nly reason I picked her was becouse the letuce twins weren't on here but it still is heartbreaking when she dies

37 Joker (Batman: Arkham Asylum / City) Joker (Batman: Arkham Asylum / City) 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 . Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

Come on... He's The Joker... Nothing much is needed to speak... He is a guy capable to things no other villains in DC comics can. Even the most powerful ones... After brains are better than brawns...

How is he not HIGHER in this list? HE'S AMAZING!
Different from any other villain! He's Crazy!

He's THE JOKER he could kill Mario to be honest

He is awesome sadly underrated.

39 Red (Pokemon) Red (Pokemon)

Ash is ahead of Red? Red saved the world! If Red wasn't there to stop Team Rocket in the first place, Team Rocket would have moved on to all the other
Regions and take over Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova. You should actually consider putting Red above Ash. Ash isn't even in the games. To all those Pokemon fans, Red saved the Pokemon world from being a boring place taken over by Team Rocket.

You can honestly forget about any other Pokemon character, as red has a overlevelled pikachu. GG, light orb volt tackle. And to be honest, he was beaten by a kid who had to go through 3x what he did to come close to him in the first place. So yeah.

Ah, yes. Red. He's the guy who helped mold Giovanni into goodness, saving the world, and he's ten. Along the way to saving everything, Red helped countless towns and paved the way for the second-most sold video game franchise in history.

Should be at least in top ten...

40 Leon (Resident Evil)

Leon is cool because he said "Saddler, you're small time".

Leon is the best RE character ever

Leon is one of the best game characters ever made, with hi looks and smarts. And anyone who played RE4 is sure to know to.
Thumbs up to capcom for one of the most succesful character

Wow what the he co people? He's decently one of the best characters ever at least in top 10. He's smart he's handsome and also bad ads! He deserves higher UGH
