10. Red Savarin
" He who laughs last, laughs best, right?"
Red Savarin is a Hunter (read odd-job mercenary) who has to put up with the strict management of his younger sister while living from job to job. Upbeat and selfless, he is always willing to lend a hand (even if the pay sucks) and knows how to take a positive view of everything. He gives a home to the homeless Elh and can be counted on to do the right thing, despite a past riddled with mystery and shadows. Even when doubts surface about his own ability, he still finds the ambition to save the Shepherd Republic. A strong will and a compassion for others earns him this spot on the list.
9. Leon S.Kennedy
"Well, I really don't give a damn; rain or shine, you're going down."
Leon is one of the heroes from Resident Evil. He starts out as a cop in Racoon city and is emerged into a zombie apocalypse on the first day. Just a rookie. He manages to save Claire, take down the G(with a little help from Claire), Take down Mr.X, and most importantly survive when not many were doing so. Then he goes on to work for the president and this sends himinitially to Spain where he saves the president's daughter. He fights giant monsters, and a load of mutated creatures. He goes on to be the knowledgeable savior of the movie Degeneration. He takes down the G once again. He pretty much succeeds in saving those in need of help.
8. Turok Lineage
"I am TUROK!"
The Turok lineage has been around for years, saving this world and others from generations of mad men and tyrants. Whenever a crazy alien challenges creation or a ruthless warlord comes to power, a member of the lineage is plucked from their spot and sent forth on the path of destiny. With Native American origins, they are all knowledgeable in the use of a bow and a melee weapon (and given that this is the first weapons that they start off with, they'repretty impressive warriors) as well as modern and alienweapons. They've fought everything from dinosaurs to the undead toOblivion spawn without so much as batting an eye. Their dedication to their cause and their warrior spiritearn them this spot.
Although technically voiceless, Link's actions have spoken well of him for his many adventures. Him and his ancestors have been thwartingevil-doers for years with steadfast courage (which might be a result of wielding the Triforce of Courage). Although he never starts out as quite the warrior with prowess, he always has a way with a sword (and the Master Sword)that makes him a master in the end. On top of that, he has a clever knack for solving various labyrinths via his trusty bag of tools. Grappling hooks, bows, and other objects are utilized by Link to make him a well-rounded fighter. An impressive resume and unshakable bravery earn Link his spot.
"Just because the logic is sound, it doesn't mean it's right."
He is a boy who strove for something. It started as him protecting Colette and he ended up saving the world. He comes across many conflicts in his journey and he overcomes each and every one of them. Conflicts such as fighting his father and rescuing Colette from her puppet state. He stays by her side even when things seem like a loosing situation for him. He never falters in his views and he believes in what he thinks is right and follows his views to the end. He is strong but it is his confidence that makes him number 6.
"I can already tell. Looks like this is gonna be one hell of a party!"
For one he is half demon and half human. What side does he pick: human. He does everything he can to protect the humans from malicious demons. He helps Nero figure out the truth and guides him to saving that city from demons. He kills Mundus the demon king. He will even fight his own brother to protect human life. If anything I do know at least we have a demon on our side.
4. Squall/Lightning Gunblade wielders
Squall: "Everybody. This is Squall. How's everyone doing? You're all probably too tired to even stand up after all the fighting. But I want everyone to listen to me... We still have a chance to win, and I need your help. This is going to be our final battle. We're going to attack them before they come in again. To do that, we're going to head straight into their Garden. So I want everyone to prepare for a major collision. Take care of the junior ****en. Irvine, Quistis, Zell and Selphie will lead the attack into their Garden. As for everyone else, please support them if you can. SeeD was formed to fight the Sorceress; at least, that's what I heard. And Garden was created to train SeeDs. So this battle is Garden's destiny and also our destiny. It's a grueling battle and I'm sure you guys are all exhausted. But I don't want to have any regrets. I don't want anyone to look back and regret this day. So just this once, I want you guys to give everything you've got! For yourselves and for me!"
Lightning: "It's not a question of can or can't.Some things in life,you just do."
To state the obvious they booth wield gunblades. Lets face it though that does not make them heroes. They both lead and are questionably the greatest leaders of Final Fantasy. They know what it takes to get the job done. They have soldier qualities and both kind of start off as jerks and end up being kind. Lightning obviously lead the party in her game as well as Squall. Lightning and Squall both give their lives for noble causes like Knights of valor. They are a perfect representation of heroes and yes they both happen to be gunblade wielders.(which is the coolest weapon aside from the 3rd one on the list's weapon)
3. Vincent Valentine
"When a person has someone they care about that much, giving their life is sometimes the least they can do. And maybe that's what makes us human"
Vincent Valentine is arguably the most heroic character from FFVII and as most of the characters of VII he wants to save the world and protect people. The difference? He knows what he needs to do and he is not having problems with Identity. He has a monster inside him but one he controls. He is the most awesome vampire and he is the most friendly. Aside from the crap Twilight. yuck!
2. Solid Snake/Raiden
Solid Snake: "If you ask me, there's no happiness to be found in death... no peace either. I'm leaving here alive"
Raiden: "I am lightning, the rain transformed..."
Raiden and Solid Snake are heroes of Metal gear Solid. Raiden struggles with his past as a child soldier overcoming this and becoming the worlds greatest hero. Both Heroes of America. Raiden defeats Metal gear Ray and stops Solidus Snake from his terrorism. Then Solid Snake is a PATRIOT. He defeats Metal gear Rex as well as his brother. He has stopped a lot of terrorism. They are truly the best American Heroes aside from the #1. What else is cooler than a ninja American and a BA man with a headband that is also American?
1. Armed Forces
"Any soldier worth his salt should be anti-war. And still, there are things worth fighting for."
— General Norman Schwarzkopf
This is not directed at any single character or at anysingle country's forces. This is dedicated to all of those overlooked Americans, Russians, British, and other forces that fought by your side to rid the world of tyranny and oppression. Many of them entered the battlefield with a will to fight for their country and many would not come home. They're the guys that had your back on the battlefield and swapped battle stories with you in between. They're bravery, sacrifice, and selfless service for mankind earn them the top spot in this list.
