    For now my favourites would be:

    Cloud - FFVII - heroic type

    Irenicus - BGII - evil genius/madman

    Tyler-Durden - Fight Club - I think he's kind of hard to label as good, evil, right, wrong, sane or insane.

    Captain Benjamin Sysco - Avery Brooks (1337 black activist and JAZZ musician)

    Dr. Rodney McKay - David Hewlett (Them silly Canadians them!)

    J.C. Denton - Deus Ex

    ...this really should be limited to TV/Movie fictional characters or game characters... no more than three.

    too many to name really, especially when you include the oldies.

    the newest addition to my list is the russian Spetsnaz colonel (he is never named, eventhough he's the main character) from "303" six issue comic-book series created by Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows.

    that's just an immortal badass right there...

    Roland Deschain - The Dark Tower books, Stephen King

    Even though Roland trumps everyone ever. the runners up are...

    Grey Fox
    Solid Snake
    Liquid Snake
    Boba Fett(not event he sarlac pit can stop him!)
    Church(Red vs Blue)

    Also as far as The Dark Tower books go. If no one has read them, I suggest you do. If you like post apoc, sci-fi, westerns, or Stephen King, read them.

    PS Cloud and every FF character sucks balls.

    Kilgore Trout
    Kurt Vonnegut's alter ego. Wandering around in most of Vonnegut's books, Trout is either writing bad science fiction stories or spewing witty remarks and priceless wisdom like some mental geiser on Mars. Thank you. And God bless you, Kurt.

    Charlie Brown
    Charles M. Schulz' brainchild and of the whole Peanuts gang the one I can identify with most.
    Peanuts is heartwarming, naive, poetic, witty and timeless. I grew up with Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and the rest of the bunch, and I still collect and read the strips today. Best stuff in my bookcase (and trust me: it's a big friggin' bookcase).

    The Tramp
    Charlie Chaplin's 'modern' clown. A mixture of melancholy and humour that is more Shakespearian than Shakespeare. The Tramp can move a man to tears and have him laugh out loud the next minute. The best fictional character ever. And you can quote me on that.

    No Captain Jean Luc Picard fans?! OK I see a Benjamin Sisko fan, but C'mon! Picard was 10x the captian Sisko was! Picard was the explorer while Sisko was the 'home boy' at Deep Space 9. Picard specializes in first contact missions, diplomacy, he defeated the borg single handedly at wolf 359, he even has a battle tactic named after him.

    Sisko is good at... baseball :lol:

    Not that I dislike Sisko or anything :D
