Link Report Abuse
The main character of the Legend of Zelda series, this elfin swordsman can do no wrong. Basically every single game he has been in has been highly critically acclaimed, and the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is considered the best game of all time. His various incarnations have weathered dozens of tough dungeons and obstacles, and he manages to do it while still looking cool. Nobody can beat the Hero of Time, the Hero of the Winds, and whatever else it is that he's the hero of. Oh yeah, and he's got great green clothes.

Solid Snake Report Abuse
The main character of the Metal Gear franchise, he's tough, he's a clone, and he's tough as nails. The Metal Gear Solid games are all highly critically acclaimed, and even when he isn't the main character, he plays a major role. Besides, who doesn't love him and his little box?

Mario Report Abuse
Everyone's favorite Japanese-made Italian plumber. He's starred in more games than probably any other single character in video game history, and a ton of those, including Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario 64, and Super Mario Bros., were highly critically acclaimed. In a lot of parts of the world, he's more recognizable than Mickey Mouse.

That superfast blue hedgehog himself. His games may have seen hard times in the last few years, but back in the day, his speed platformers were the best of the best. He's been the main character of dozens of games, and he's SEGA's mascot.

At the end of Sonic Adventure 2, his first in-game appearance, he was presumed dead, but returned in Sonic Heroes with amnesia that persists into the events of Shadow the Hedgehog.

He is a true British spy working for MI6 his intelligence, mind, driving skills, martial arts, sharpshooting, gadgets, strong feelings of specific things, has always helped him get the job done when it comes to catching bad guys and having the license to kill. He is clumsy sometimes when it comes to looking at gadgets that is being developed but in the middle going to the end, he will be very serious and do what he can do to save the world to bring it to peace. He is always great with women.
