Default Best Protagonist Tournament

I'm taking this honor from Soapy even before anyone suggesting it (in case no one did), while he's busy managing villains tournament I will handle this one.

As that one, list your top 10 game heroes (main or secondary) from any generation, if you aim to choose a series with rotating main protagonist (i.e Tekken and King of Fighters) you can choose both if you like
If you choose a character from Mortal Kombat, you may choose the second Sub-Zero for being one of the two main stars in the series, but not Scorpion, cause he leans more toward Shao Kahn's side

EDIT: Nomination door came to an end

EDIT 2: Only one shall pass each match in round 1. If two had a tie when the time for a round comes to an end, they will fight until the next round ends, if they are still tied by then I'll flip a coin

Cool!

Tommy Vercetti
(GTA: Vice City)
Max Payne (Max Payne 1-3)
Shepard (Mass Effect 1-3)
Agent 47
(The Hitman series)
Kirby (The Kirby series)

I just realized, so many of my favorite games don't have a definitive protagonist.

Uh...

The Dragonborn (Skyrim) ...does that count? I guess it's not much different to nominating Shepard.

The Nameless Boy (Limbo)
Starkiller (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed)

What about characters who didn't originate in video games? If those are allowed I'd also like to nominate:

The Punisher (The Punisher)
Batman (Arkham Asylum, Arkham City)

Did you talk to Soapy about this? Do we really need multiple tourneys running at once?

If a series has more than one protagonist, you can the one(s) you like more than the rest

It will eventually come, didn't find shame in starting it sooner
Misc Movies place have a couple of contests at the same time, took inspiration from that

It's okay, I'm talking about games like Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings or Worms 2. There are literally no characters in those games

Well protagonist isn't a necessarily mutually exclusive role to that of villain. I think saying you liked Naked Snake in MGS3 as the protagonist isn't invalidated because he was an antagonist in the other games.
