Help! I want everyone's opinion!

Hey guys,

I ask today that you guys help me with a project that I'm going to be working on very, very soon. I can't release any details, but it is going to be sweet. For it to be even sweeter, I need all of your help!

What I am looking for is the most iconic video game characters. From the game you select, I want you to give me what your opinions are of who are the most iconic good character (or characters) AND the most iconic bad character (or characters).

NOTE: THIS IS NOT JUST FOR XBOX 360! I AM LOOKING FOR ANYTHING RELATED TO ANY OTHER GAMING SYSTEM!

Seeing as I am one guy, I can't obviously play every game out there, (nor do I want to), so that's what I'm asking your help for.

Here's what I am looking for:
- The name of the game
- The name, in your opinion, of the most iconic characters in the game, good and bad. (Whether they are dead, sick, or unable to fight, it doesn't matter. Still list them.)

What I am not looking for:
- Games that are based or related on a movie or TV show. (If it is stand-alone, by all means, say it. ie. Arkham City, Transformers: War for Cybertron.)
- Games where you play a created character. (Although extremely fun, it just wouldn't be the same for everyone. ie. Fallout, Elder Scrolls)
NOTE: Some games can fit this category and still work. The one that sticks out in my head is Saints Row. You still have the main characters(Johny Gat, Shaundi, Pierce, etc.) but also a created character.
- Zombie games. (Although they have a wide variety of main characters, the enemies are just the same and repetitive. ie. Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead. If you can find a zombie game that breaks this mold, by all means say it, please.)

Here's just an example of what I'm going for:

Name: Good Characters / Bad Characters

Halo: Master Chief and Arbiter / The Covenant aliens and the prophets
Modern Warfare: Soap and Price / Makorav
Saint's Row: Johny Gat, Shaundi, Pierce, and Oleg / KillBane, Marrow, and Shogo, etc.
Borderlands: Mordecai, Roland, Lillith, and Brick / (I completely drew a blank on Borderlands as of writing this. Any suggestions?)
Mortal Kombat : Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kitana, Liu Kang, Raiden / Goro, Shao Kahn, and Shang Tsung.


I know this seems very random, but I need your help to make this project I'm doing a success. Please list your suggestions on this, and if you have anything to add/change about the few I mentioned here as an example, please feel free to tell me. Again, this isn't just for Xbox, I would actually love it if you guys threw in the other consoles.

Thanks for anything you contribute! Names of the people will be mentioned to the people who helped! Look forward to hearing the announcement when the project is finished!

-Gil B. (Br1ghtShadow)

I'd hardly consider any characters from Saints Row, Modern Warfare, Borderlands, or Shenmune iconic. While gamers might recognize them, non-gamers won't. For a character to be iconic, even people who have never played a game need to be able to identify the character, so you'd need to use characters who have been around for decades (Mario, Sonic, etc.) or characters who are part of massive ad campaigns (Master Chief, Kratos, etc.). Also, Villians are far less iconic than the heroes because of their massively reduced billing. They are seen far less and thus aren't as recognizable.

For a good idea of how recognizable a character is, look through the various quizzes on sporcle. If only 10% of the people are recognizing a character, they aren't iconic. You'd need to look more towards the characters people are identifying more than 90% of the time.

tl;dr: If your mom doesn't know who they are, they aren't iconic.

BTW; if your including general races I.E.- the covenant from the Halo series, then zombies would be considered an "iconic" villain.

I guess I didn't explain very well in the original post. I apologize, it was a very groggy night for me last night.

I don't necessarily mean iconic games, but in some of your favorite games, what are you favorite, iconic characters (that stand out in that game, not in pop culture, so to say.) that are good and bad.

For example, I've never played the Assassin's Creed games, but I know about Ezio and Altiar. Now the villians on the other hand, I have no clue. That's why I asked you guys, just to get the full experience in the project I'm working on.

I apologize as I realize my request was extremely vague. Sorry for any confusion.

So you want variety from a bunch of random games?

The Legend of Zelda: Link/Ganon
Sonic The Hedgehog: Sonic/Eggman or Shadow. Both work^^
Phantasy Star Universe: Ethan/Magashi
Silent Hill 2: James/Pyramid Head
Gears of War: Marcus/Myrrah
Super Mario Bros: Mario/Bowser
Kameo Elements of Power: Kameo/Thorn
Metroid: Samus/Dark Samus
Pokemon: Ash/Gary
Kingdom Hearts: Sora/Xehanort
Kirby's Dreamland: Kirby/King Dedede (are they enemies? I know very little about kirby xD)

Sadly, a large portion of my games are involved in the series above or have no definite evil side. (i.e. Mirror's Edge has a whole conspiracy)

I will edit my list if any more come to mind

John Marston, Red Dead Redemption. He was the only character I ever truly enjoyed and cheered for. Got so angry at the end, that my girlfriend started calling him my boyfriend for a few weeks.

Might i suggest updating your OP with a full list of what everybody has already said? That way you eliminate a bunch of repeats and allow room for people to correct something that is amiss. Good luck in your project, it sounds exciting!

I think claptrap was pretty damned iconic, sure there was multiple claptraps but the orange one they used the most and in the ads and stunning mini movies was fantastic, such a great funny character.

My all time fave has got to be Master Chief/John 117 the guys a legend and we still don't know much other than he was born with increased psychical abilities compared to other children, so unsc decided to use him for their spartanII program. Who else can win a universal war and destroy the covenant and flood by himself.

Lol at first I thought you were splitting the characters into good/bad as in quality.

Ehh technically, but everyone in that series/game becomes one big happy family eventually.

OT:
Tekken: Jin / Heihachi
Soulcalibur: Siegfried / Nightmare

Anything else I would say has already been taken.

How could you get Metroid wrong?! It varies with the games.
Metroid: Samus/Mother Brain
Super Metroid(most memorable battle): Samus/Ridley
Metroid Prime: Samus/those friggin space pirates.
Metroid Prime 2: Samus/Dark Samus
Metroid Fusion: Samus/X Samus

Sorry for calling you out Ceris, I'm just a complet fanboy for that series.

Gannon - TLoZ:OoT Gannondorf transforming to Gannon under the power of the Tri-Force....that was epic if you ask me. Best Villan ever

Samus Aran - Something about being so alone, looking for any chance of your extinct race's survival (not genetically, but they raised you and gave you your suit), and just the closed quiet bad ass...best protagonist.

I was being general But Samus Aran-X and Dark Samus are pretty much the game role. Though, I should have added Ridley, since he is such an iconic enemy.

Adding
Final Fantasy XIII-2: Serah vs Caius.
Caius has to be one of my favorite villains of all time now.

I think the most Iconic good character has to be Mario and Luigi and bad character is Bowser.

I think most of the entries are barely iconic. I consider myself as quite a hardcore gamer and I haven't even heard of some of the guys you list.
I try to list characters I think most people, even if they don't play games at all have most probably heard of:

Good Characters:

Mario: Super Mario Bros
Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong Country
Pac-Man: Pac-Man
Masterchief: Halo
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
Sonic: Sonic the Hedgehog
Link: Zelda
Megaman: Megaman

Bad Characters:
Bowser: Super Mario Bros
Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong (Yes its correct I stated him as both good and bad guy)
Cats: Zero Wing (Popular through the phrase: All your base are belong to us)

Random Character:
Skyrim NPC (The one that took an arrow to the knee)
