Ummm...let's go for...

Vincent - FFVII. I don't know why but the whole silent and moody thing made him seem so much cooler than Cloud.

Agent 4125 - Impossible Mission. He may dress like Han Solo's gay cousin, but you got to admire those somersault skills. If he'd appeared in Hyper Sports instead then he would have found the fame that he's always wanted.

Green Yamo - Bruce Lee. Do I have to give a reason? He's fat, green and dangerous, like the Hulk after Christmas lunch. Whereas the ninja and Bruce would duck when you pulled down on the joystick, GY gave a nifty little battle cry (or was it a yawn?) that never got boring to perform. What's more, he pioneered the 'Let's walk him off this cliff onto those flaming spikes' approach even before Lara Croft was a twinkle in Core's eye.

Ryu - Street Fighter.
Kazuya Mishima - Tekken.
Jade - Beyond Good & Evil

Ryu - because he is da man. (What ever that means)
Kazuya Mishima - because for me he opitimises cool.
Jade - better than Lara. Genuinely like-able!

Thing on a Spring-He's a Thing on a Spring. He can stretch to extraordinary lengths(could come in handy with the women), and goes boing.

The 1st Colossi in SOTC. Not the hardest, but it's the wow factor the 1st time you play it and it just gets better and better and well you know what I mean if you've played it. If not Why not?

Last but not least Donkey Kong-From Villain to Hero and back again, DK has done it all from throwing barrels to Kart Racing.He may be a Monkey but he's still cool.

Clyde Radcliffe - Creatures He's cute, cuddly and breathes fire! What more could you need?

The Prince - Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time I actually cared about keeping him alive, even though I could rewind time when I made a mistake. It's a pity what he became in Warrior Within though.

The Lemmings - Lemmings So much character in each tiny group of pixels. They die in the funniest ways, too! :D

Oh goody! Okay... I'll avoid the obvious (and let someone else nominate them, Sonic, Mario etc.) so here goes!

1.) Dirk The Daring from Dragon's Lair (most formats.)

Our bumbling hero is always out to save the princess. He always manages to scrape through perilous situations by the skin of his teeth, yet never slows down or gives up in his quests to save her. Most people would have browned their underwear and died of a connery at the gates of the dreaded Dragon's Lair yet Dirk always goes running in without hesitation! Although more through sheer dumbness than courage no doubt!

2.) Guybrush Threepwood from Monkey Island. (Amiga)

Another nomination for GT... extremely rubbish pirate, but yet sooooo funny. Great character for a great game.

3.) Pac Man (all formats.)

Good looking, great personality and a top notch diet.

DK Jr as seen in DK Jr.
Something about when he quickly slides down a single vine.
Most likeable?

The Lemmings. Gotta love 'em. Oh no!
Most loveable?

Dirk Daring. He means it so well. Creatively related to Donald Duck methinks.
Most valiant?
