What's your all time favourite fictional character?

  1. As lame as it may sound Uncle Iroh genuinely inspired me growing up, and honestly he still does. That man gives some good advice.

  2. I had heard a lot about this show, but figured it was purely a kids show and a lot of people simply had nostalgia. I’m 29 and watched it all for the first time about a month ago. It might be my favorite show of all time. Shame there isn’t really anything out there that feels like it compares.

  3. Same. Whenever I struggle to motivate myself, I watch the scene where Iroh is getting swole in prison.

  4. I adore Death and the Death of Rats(obviously lol). Never knew how attached I could become to an anthropomorphic personification.

  5. You lay upon the blood-soaked dirt of your ruined land. Castles plundered... dominions in ruin... servants destroyed all to end the hellfire with which you sought to cover the world. A bloody conquest having consumed hundreds of thousands, countless villages razed to the ground, and over 20,000 impaled and prostrated by you and you alone to strike horror into the hearts of mortal men! what say you, monster, demon, devil conceived by the bleakest womb?! WHAT SAY YOU NOW?!

  6. "You've left out one of the chief characters - Samwise the Brave I want to hear more about Sam. Frodo wouldn't have got far without Sam." "Now Mr. Frodo, you shouldn't make fun, I was being serious." "So was I"

  7. Sam's stand against Shelob is often held up as the single most courageous act in the LoTR trilogy. Unlike every other fight, Sam is alone when he faces the giant spider. A creature even Aragorn and Gandalf were wary of.

  8. I'm in my first trimester with our first baby and have been super sick and feeling crappy. My husband has been great about taking care of me. I keep thanking him and the other day he goes, "Babe, I'm the SamWise Gamgee to your Frodo. I'm here to help along the way" It was super sweet. He kept it going from there. The baby was the ring, the pregnancy was Mt Doom... and *something* was Smeagol. He kinda lost me lol.

  9. Oh, its you... How have you been? I have been very busy being dead... you know, after you murdered me. Ok, I think we both said a lot of things you are going to regret, but I think we should put our differences behind us, for science... you monster.

  10. The bit that always gets me is in Portal when you remove the core thats keeping her moderately less evil and she just... laughs.

  11. I just wish he was better in Smash Ultimate. All he needs is a faster airspeed and he’s good. His moves are all solid.

  12. He’s just a ball of nice, like there is some deep ass lore to his games, but most of the time the reason the pink puffball sets out on his adventure is because someone stole his cake or uncolored his apple

  13. Obi-Wan Kenobi: he looks to be an ideal Jedi, with force powers that matched even Anakin in strength, and yet he also had a deeper, more sentimental side to him, with his love for Satine.

  14. Was he that strong though? I always felt like anakin in terms of strength was top tier, but obi Wan managed to fight him on even terms because 1 he trained him and knows how he fights and 2 anakin was blinded by rage. Theres a reason why Vader successfully hunted and exterminated the remaining jedis after order 66 even after losing like half of his body.

  15. Mass Effect 2's Mordin Solus. He is kind but dark, brilliant and sophisticated but brutal, pragmatic and cold but spiritual and insightful. He is this alien tangle of contradictions that somehow all work together to create the deepest character in fiction that I can think of. Everyone of his conversation in 2 is a treasure, he's an amazing and hilarious friend to Shep, and damned can he sing.

  16. Prince Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender. While other characters are cooler and more bad-ass, I found him the most interesting character by far. He's a walking incarnation of the conflict between good and evil.

  17. His is one of the most interesting character developments I've seen. He goes from main antagonist in season one to a full on protagonist by the end. His redemption arc is so long and difficult, but it just makes the character. Writers were amazing on that show.

  18. I really liked his relapse towards the end. Shows that self-improvement is not a straight line and you can go back down deeper than ever before and still climb yourself up.

  19. Eddie comes close second in the series, but damn... What a waste of Idris Elba. A super actor, fitting the role in every way imaginable, then they give him... nothing to work with, as the script of the movie was just awful.

  20. “Now that’s what I call magic—seein’ all that, dealin’ with all that, and still goin’ on. It’s sittin’ up all night with some poor old man who’s leavin’ the world, taking away such pain as you can, comfortin’ their terror, seein’ ‘em safely on their way…and then cleanin’ ‘em up, layin’ ‘em out, making ‘em neat for the funeral, and helpin’ the weeping widow strip the bed and wash the sheets—which is, let me tell you, no errand for the fainthearted—and stayin’ up the next night to watch over the coffin before the funeral, and then going home and sitting down for five minutes before some shouting angry man comes bangin’ on your door ‘cuz his wife’s havin’ difficulty givin’ birth to their first child and the midwife’s at her wits’ end and then getting up and fetching your bag and going out again…That is the root and heart and soul and center of witchcraft, that is. The soul and center!”

  21. Harry Dresden, he always tries so hard to do the right thing, and it always ends up causing SO many problems. Still by far one of the wittiest and overall fun characters to read.

  22. Agreed. I always love how even though he is a wizard, he doesn't use magic as a crutch and understands that sometimes it is more practical to use something like a gun.

  23. Link. In an endless war between Zelda and the forces of light and the ruthless demon Ganon, Link is the one picking up the pieces. He's the one who stands for everyone else involved in this overwhelming and often tragic conflict, no matter which incarnation of himself he is. Link is the one constantly dragged into the battle between good and evil, and is always determined to end it.

  24. The Doctor. Simultaneously an aspirational hero and a deeply flawed character. The ideal of The Doctor is one we should all strive towards, but even The Doctor can not always live up to it.

  25. The Twelfth Doctor is probably the best representation of what The Doctor should be like. A flawed, angry and remorseful man with a darkness that tries to consume him, but deep down he is a force of pure good and heroism that is inspirational to watch.

  26. Hands down its Handsome Jack. His lines were written perfectly in match with his great personality. Everything about Handsome Jack is amazing.

  27. See, this is what I don't get about you bad guys. You know the hero's gonna win, but you never just die quickly-- man, this one guy in New Haven, right? City's burning, people dying, blah blah blah. This guy rushes me with a spoon. A fricking spoon. And I'm just laughing. So I scoop out his eyeballs with it, and his kids are all, "aghhhhh!,” and, ah...you had to be there. Anyway, the moral is: you're a bitch.

  28. They really did a great job making a more "tragic" story, especially if you've played the first one and especially if you've played as Mordecai.

  29. Ned Stark from Game of thrones. Even in literature, that kind of honor, kindness and loyalty is nearly unheard of. Even his darkest secret isn't really that dark.

  30. You could argue that in Ned's rash reaction to finding Jamie on the Throne after he had killed Aerys caused irreparable harm.

  31. Honestly, my all-time favorite fictional character is sheik from The legend of Zelda. There is such a mysterious Aura to him. Or her. Depends on who you ask.

  32. Came here looking for my boy Arthur. At first, I didn't like him very much, he just seemed kind of dull compared to other characters that I cared more because of the first Red Dead, like Dutch and John Marston. But midway through the game, when he starts questioning Dutch and slowly grows a mind of his own, he starts to shine and when I got to Chapter 6 I realized how much I cared for him.

  33. Rosalina from the Mario franchise. Ever since I was about 7 or 8 (when Galaxy released) she’s been my absolute favorite and has always stuck with me. Her emotional storybook you get to hear, being the mother of the Lumas, everything about her is great.

  34. Vegeta, he has a full change from genocidal maniac villian to self sacrificing hero(even after he learns that he will still go to HFIL(Home for infinite losers)). DBZ was always more of a Vegeta story with Goku being his Foil.

  35. Re-reading the books I feel like Hermione is basically the main character. Harry is the focal point of the drama, but Hermione is so often the heroine.

  36. Almost everyone from Fullmetal Alchemist, but when it comes to absolute favourite I would have to choose between Edward and Roy.

  37. He’s so connected with David Suchet in my head that I actually refused to watch the new Orient Express film

  38. For a protagonist 100% Arthur Morgan. I absolutely grew to love this character and I was very sceptical about him living up to the great John Marston, but he did and then some!

  39. Gollum - never appreciated, never talked about, but very thoughtfully written. He's not just a character, he's a metaphor to the misery you shall endow if you succumb to greed. The quest for power can end up making you completely powerless, so powerless that you can't even want to kill yourself, in which case your existence would be worse than life itself. And then your misery and self loathing will consume you so much that you will lose sight of right or wrong. At that point there can be only 2 things you can wish for - either life itself or death.

  40. Hannibal Lector. A man with such prodigious intelligence and acumen that he can render cannibalism as something as negligible as a decadent indulgence. His relationship with Clarice was simultaneously a seduction of her and the reader into depravity! He consumes our sense of morality and righteousness as well as fictional flesh.

  41. Donald fucking Draper he embodies the enigma of the time he's in and what he does with all its good, bad and insecurity

  42. Bojack Horseman. Probably the most accurate depiction of who most of us are, guilty people trying to escape our own flaws but not knowing how to

  43. Tied between Ragnar Lothbrook from Vikings, Arthur 'fooking' Shelby from the Peaky Blinders for me. Both of them are deeply flawed men but I admire them both.
