15:Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

I’d propose Mickey Mouse. He’s been around for a long time, giving him clout with the older and younger sets. In addition to his countless media appearances, he is the mascot for the Disney corporation, which is well-recognized around the globe.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Bugs Bunny

Looney Tunes is still the most popular cartoon program when I visit family in Brazil. Bugs is almost on par with Mickey Mouse in terms of recognition across the world.

Woody Woodpecker

Like Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker cartoons are still famous in many parts of the world.

Super Mario

The most popular video game character, Mario, is immediately identifiable and renowned worldwide.

Pokémon are probably the world’s second most known group of fictional characters (after Mickey Mouse).

The Pokémon Universe is responsible for being the highest-grossing fictional franchise in history, making $95 billion in revenue since its debut in 1996.

That makes it even higher than the Mickey Mouse and Clubhouse franchise (though Mikey Mouse is probably still more well-known), the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Wizarding World, Hello Kitty, and Call of Duty.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

The Joker. After Christopher Nolan made The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger’s Joker suffered an immense lift. He wins if you compare his acting with the previous Joker, Jack Nicholson. The guy dedicated his life to this character. Now, if anyone talks about the Joker, the picture that comes into mind is of Heath Ledger with his memorable quote,” Why so serious? “.

There are tons of characters who have got immense uplifts and have become well-known to the world. The most notable, in no order, are:-

1. Batman

2. Iron Man

3. Sheldon Cooper

4. Sherlock Holmes

5. Darth Vader

6. Harry Potter

7. Mickey Mouse

The list is never-ending… Last but not least, everyone’s favorite


Who is the most remarkable fictional character of all time, and why?

Don Vito Corleone.

Although Don Corleone is a crime boss, you root for him.

He was orphaned as a teenager, escaped assassins, emigrated to a country far away from his home in Sicily, and did not even speak the language of his adopted homeland.

He knows the value of family and friendship. Everything he does, he does, keeping in mind his family and their welfare.

He will always do something for you before he asks you for a favor. And when he asks you for a favor, it will never be against your principles. The undertaker, Amerigo Bonasera, was terrified when he received a call from Tom Hagen informing him that the Don would ask Bonasera to do him a service. Bonasera assumed that the Don would ask him to bury rival gangsters secretly. It turned out that Don only wished to have his eldest son Sonny’s body made presentable for his funeral.

He is a man of his word. He promised his Godson, Johnny Fontaine, that he would get him a part in Jack Woltz’s new production, and he did. He had to move heaven and Earth to make it happen, but Johnny Fontaine never knew about it. He just got the part. In return, Don Corleone only expected Johnny to help another Godson, Nino Valenti.

And above all, Don Corleone does not believe in making threats. That is what weaker men do. He reasons with you and then makes you an offer you cannot refuse.

Who is the most remarkable fictional character of all time, and why?

Sherlock Holmes!!

Just because many people on this Earth think that he existed sometime 😀

Because of Sir Conan Doyle’s detailed characterization,

He is a fictional detective created by author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His deerstalker cap, pipe, overcoat, and magnifying glass came to symbolize detectives and their art through Sherlock Holmes’ early popularity. Simply put, people enjoy a good story, especially a mystery.

“In our modern time of fast living, modern conveniences, and computerized crime and detection, Sherlock Holmes represents the spirit of an earlier, more straightforward, and more romantic period.

Perhaps, as Watson was to him, Holmes is to us “the one fixed point in a changing age.”

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

I have traveled to many parts of the world, constantly trying to get as far away from Western culture as possible. Not because I hate it but because I want to experience new worlds. I could never escape Micky Mouse or any of his Disney cronies. The odd thing was that Michael Jackson was everywhere, too. He is partly a fictional character, too. This was 20 years ago so that things may have changed.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Pretty sure it’s out of

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Mickey Mouse is the most famous of them all. Every age group, from newborns, little kids, teens, adults, and elders, knows Mic, essential Mouse; even in the most remote parts of the world know Mickey Mouse. I’ve had friends who have been to the UK, Russia, Asia, Africa, Germany, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Austria, and Europe. I’ve seen pictures of them there. They all know Mickey Mouse. His cartoons and comics are shown worldwide. He has 3 Disney Theme Parks in Shanghai, China; Hong Kong, China and Tokyo, Japan. All in Asia, one in Paris, France in Europe; you can go anywhere, and only a few will not know Mickey Mouse. I see 3rd world country kids wearing his shirts; the only Fictional Characters that can give Mickey Mouse a run for his money in both global fame and recognition are Santa Claus, Superman, and Ronald McDonald. Even then, the closest would be Santa Claus, with Superman and Ronald McDonald far behind Mickey Mouse in global fame. The most recognizable four most Recognizable Symbols Apart from the Christian Cross are, in no particular order, the Coca-Cola Ribbons (Santa Claus), McDonald’s Arches (Ronald McDonald), Mickey Mouse Ears (Mickey Mouse), and the S Sheild (Superman).

Top 4 Ranked in terms of Most Globally Famous and Recognizable are

1.) Mickey Mouse

2.) Santa Claus

3.) Ronald McDonald

4.) Superman

Who are the ten most enormous fictional characters of all time?

It’s hard to have enough knowledge of all fiction to know every supermassive fictional being, but I’m aware of quite a few in no particular order.

  1. The Swimmers.

(It’s not an official image, just visual appeal.)

Their size is incomprehensible; the best analogy was that an egg cell is to a continent as an entire universe is to a swimmer. A whole universe is too small for a swimmer to even notice.

2. The Leviathans of the extended Who verse and book series.

(They have no actual image; I just put this here for visual appeal. Not an official image in any way.)

Leviathan’s are about 3 million times larger than the entire universe. They exist between multiverses.

3. Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan

About twenty times larger than the universe we live in.

4. Marble Alien.

Our Galaxy is merely a marble to it, but STTGL is larger than the universe itself.

5. Maturin – The Turtle

Maturin vomited out the entire Stephen King macroverse, putting it around the size of a swimmer, give or take a few hundred light years.

6. A’Tuin

I know little about this other cosmic turtle, but the image speaks for itself.

7. Mogo / Ego

Both are supermassive planets that are living and thinking. I assure you that their exact size escapes me, but they are no Pluto.

8. Galactus

His size is whatever he wants it to be, but his default original form is a conscious star. So his actual size is that of a star, what sort, I am not sure, but a star nonetheless.

9. Solaris

I would say he is a living star from DC Superman One Million and about a tenth the size of Earth.

10. Getter Emporer

A godlike machine that continually absorbs matter and can manipulate space, it is a planet and eventually galaxy eater.

So, these are my most enormous beings.

Who are some of the best fictional characters, and why?

Whoever can kill this guy:

Azathoth, the Blind Idiot. This guy is BEYOND the Author level at the lowest.

All of reality is a dream Azathoth is having. Azathoth’s thoughts and feelings rewrite the universe. All of your characters? Azathoth’s thought process created them.

If Azathoth wakes up, all of reality, all universes, end, leaving only Azathoth and the Land of Fuckery he resides on. If he dies, it never restarts again.

The only thing that could kill him is something on that plane that is more powerful than Azathoth, which means that, at minimum, Azathoth is the most powerful. At maximum, Azathoth isn’t even close.

This guy

Push come to shove…

No one beats the reality warper with cartoon toughness and strength.

Which is the most complex fictional character you have encountered (TV, novel, movie, anywhere)?

When you tie people to their goals, most of the characters, however complex their actions are, become very simple. That is why most of the adult characters are too simple. I chose a kid.

Calvin is the most complex character I have come across. At first, Bill’s character seems too simplistic, like a rouge child. But if you keep reading, you dwell on the line between reality and fiction. As the strip is not going anywhere, Calvin seldom has any goals. His vivid imagination makes him more complex. If you add the fact that Hobbes is his second self, you get one of the most complex characters ever introduced.

Which is the most complex fictional character you have encountered (TV, novel, movie, anywhere)?

Walter White from Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad differs from TV serials because it has a massive cast of characters and a web of complicated relationships between them. It has a cast of less than ten characters, and the entire series revolves around this man.

If I were to tell you that a 50-year-old chemistry teacher transforms into a drug kingpin over a single year, you’d probably laugh and refuse to watch the series. But the transformation is so subtle, so believable, that at the end, you have no idea where it all went so wrong, but you can’t fault Walt for his choices at any stage. You gain a deep, complex insight into how his mind works, and the balance between the evil drug lord and loving family man is mindblowing. Brilliant character, brilliant series.

Which is the most complex fictional character you have encountered (TV, novel, movie, anywhere)?

Guy Fawkes is a masked vigilante who identifies himself as “V” From the Movie “V for Vendetta.”

The most complex fictional character I have encountered.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Since I like Ironman, Spiderman, and other superheroes as much as the next guy, the answer is…

Santa Claus. (I hope no kids are reading this)

I’ll stick to the more time-honored popular fictional characters. Honorable mention goes to.

  • Tooth Fairy
  • Hercules
  • Rome and Juliet
  • Frankenstein
  • Superman
  • Huckleberry Finn
  • Tarzan
  • Bond, James Bond
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • Cinderella
  • Snow White
  • Barbie
  • Count Dracula
  • Darth Vader
  • Indiana Jones

Who, in your opinion, is the most overrated fictional character?

This guy right here

He’s Wanked WAY too many people try to say he’s Outerversal, but in reality, he’s probably that if people feat him enough.

His weakness is Belief and Imagination. You can flick him across the universe if you genuinely Believe you can do it.

Bro is Fodder for any Fearless and Determined fictional character like Frisk from Undertale

Who, in your opinion, is the most overrated fictional character?

Don’t get me wrong, there are millions of overrated fictional characters, but if there’s one character who I think does not deserve the love they’re getting now, it’s this milk-loving Fodder,

I wouldn’t say I like that people overrate his power level, putting him on the same level as 616 Spiderman, Kylo Ren, and DCEU Aquaman.

I also don’t get why he is so loved; people call him a Chad and a Sigma; they also nickname him GOATlander and ChadLander. Why? Why do people call him this?

This dude cries whenever he doesn’t get his way,

Bullies people way weaker than him and considers himself “strong” because of it,

And drinks breast milk. There is nothing Chad, Sigma, or GOATed about any of that. Thanos,

John Wick,

15:Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Tyler Rake,

Ellen Ripley,

and Daryl Dixon,

They are way better at being GOATs than FodderLander. He’s just a man-child. The actor who plays him is fantastic, and he’s one of the best comic book actors out there, but his character is just pathetic.

Which fictional book character can you relate to the most?

Shaktimaan: Indian Super Hero.

CAA and NRC are a heated topic nowadays, and people are searching for documents to prove their nationality in the future.

A few months ago, Motor Vehicle acts had led to several challans and fines.

In this scenario, I can very well relate to Shaktimaan in a scene where he, too, was asked to show the papers and documents to prove his nationality. He was given a fine to pay.

If Shaktimaan was not even spared, then what do you think about yourself?

Get your documents ready.

This is why Iron Man, Superman, Hulk, Batman, and other superheroes don’t come to India.

They must not have a proper document to show.

Which fictional book character can you relate to the most?

Anthony Bridgerton.

15:Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Now, I don’t have much to relate to Anthony’s appearance, and unlike me, the guy was too good with girls. He had two love stories in the two seasons he was in. So, there isn’t a lot of relation between us. But he was forced into a few circumstances, and how he reacted to them reminded me of myself.

The guy is the eldest son who is pushed into some unpleasant familial circumstances quite early in life and is forced to take the mantle of a grown-up. He has to act like an adult much before he becomes one. He starts shouldering responsibilities a little earlier than his peers. He makes many decisions, some entirely wrong, and tells himself he has no choice, and she’s doing it for his family.

Luckily, I’ve not made any terrible decisions in my life so far. I was also more involved than him. I have always had some good friends. But I also tell myself that one line a lot – that I don’t have a choice, when in fact I do. I always do. All of us do.

In one scene, his sister confronts him and scolds him for using the family as an excuse for his cowardice. She says:

I mourn for you, Brother. You seem to take all these decisions and resent us for them. However, they do not make you worthy of your family’s respect. It only makes us pity you. Nothing more.

That sounded almost like a slap on my face. That’s the biggest fear of my life – taking a huge life decision in the name of my family and then resending the same family for my decision.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?


I’m willing to bet close to half the world’s population can recognize her. Most young girls grow up playing with her or at least some version of her. Whether this is intentional or not, one can’t help but notice the ideal of her beauty and the power it derives. How can this not influence the impressionable minds and attitudes of girls?

Who is the most well-developed fictional character?

There are many, but the most well-developed character is Sherlock Holmes. He is so fleshed out that many people believe him to be accurate. However, his trademark hat and Inverness jacket so associated with him were affected by an American actor who played him in the early 1900s, named Gillette, who was so good at the portrayal that almost everyone who portrays Holmes today uses those props, though the author never said he dressed in that fashion. Gillette became the highest-paid actor in America, portraying Sherlock Holmes, and built a faux castle ruin/mansion in Connecticut on a cliff above the Connecticut River with his money. Today, Gillette Castle is a popular tourist destination.

Who is the most filmed fictional character of all time?

Have all young children leave the room before reading this answer.

I answered this sort of question a few years ago on Quora, but for the life of me, I cannot find it at the moment. In my defense, though, it is almost 10 pm on my 48th birthday.

Going from memory, Santa is in the top spot, with over 900 films and shows with him in it.

He does not want to open a religious debate, but God and Jesus closely follow him.

A strictly human fictional character? Then, that would be Sherlock Holmes.

A humanoid character that is dead/undead? Dracula.

Edit: Along with Santa, for my dyslexic friends, Satan is also near the top spot if my (failing) memory serves me correctly, even above Jesus and his dad.

Who is the most filmed fictional character of all time?

It may be the “Monkey King” or “Sun Wu Kong“.

A character originating from the 16th-century Chinese Literature “Journey to the West” by Wu Cheng’en, the Monkey King is a monkey born from a rock who acquired superpowers via Taoist practices. He grew so strong that he could travel to the heavens and wreaked havoc before the Buddha trapped and imprisoned him for 500 years under a mountain. Five hundred years later, he would be tasked to accompany a monk on a journey to the West (from China to India) to retrieve Buddhist sutras where the Buddha resides.

Through multiple trials and tribulations, which saw the Monkey King fell out. His master, the monk, disowned him; Monkey King eventually accomplished his mission and attained the status of a deity, or god.

He was blessed with unrivaled superhuman strengthspeed, and the ability to transform into 72 different forms of animals or objects. One of his more unique skills is to pluck a strand of hair from himself and transform that strand into either a copy of himself or anything that he wishes it to. He also appeared to have partial weather manipulation abilities. His most popular ability may well be the “fire eyes,” which allows him to see through the disguise of monsters/demons/devils perpetrating innocent humans to get close to capturing the monk, as it was said that by eating the monk, one might attain immortality.

The first known film adaptation of the literature was in 1927 and has since seen countless variances, rewritings, and re-adjustments of the novel, the most recent being The Monkey King 3 in 2018.

The most famous and popular version adaptation may be the two-part 1995 romance-fantasy-comedy film A Chinese Odyssey starring Stephen Chow, the late Ng Man-tat, Karen Mok, Ada Choi, and Athena Chu, amongst other stars.

15:Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Who is the most famous fictional character in history?

EDIT: If your instinct is to write your answer in my comments, I suggest writing your answer. Crazy, I know.

In terms of sheer ubiquity and cultural penetration — with the admission that he’s still highly new in overall historical terms, and hindsight may bear him out differently — my mind immediately went to Harry Potter.

The other day, I saw a picture of a friend’s coffee mug on social media. It’s a straightforward design. It’s white, with a black jagged line on it. That’s the power of Harry Potter — you can see a rough line on a cup and immediately know what it means. Ditto the Deathly Hallows tattoos I see frequently or outlines of Snitches. “Mischief managed!”

And so on. Much of that may not count as it’s bigger than Harry himself. Still, I can think of very few other characters who are as instantly recognizable and who exist across multiple media — Harry has books, a theme park, films, and theater; he needs a BBC special — and across generations.

Some other thoughts (some of these are inspired loosely by real people, but I’d still call them fictional at the end of the day):

  • Robin Hood
  • Mickey Mouse
  • Cinderella
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Ebenezer Scrooge
  • Darth Vader
  • Dracula
  • Superman
  • Batman

(I don’t think it’s a coincidence that most of these are rooted in children’s stories, fables, and media we consume in our formative years.)

Who are the most complicated fictional characters ever created?

He started as a guy who traveled around in time and space but became haunted by the memories of lives he had to take to save others and the decisions he had to make to save worlds. He talks about peace and respect but loathes Daleks with absolute hatred. He invites people to share his world but knows that he’s putting their lives at risk. At the same time, he’s showing them incredible sights and wonders. He bears the burden of being the last of his race and the lone protector of time. He’s wholly asexual but moved by sexual thoughts and desires. And he’s been a completely different person over the last few years.

Badass: Who is the biggest fictional badass of all time?

My vote goes to this guy.

Roland Deschain

I do not aim with my hand. He who desires with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my hand. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind.

I do not kill with my gun. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart.”

-Gunslingers Creed

Roland Deschain is the main character of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower franchise. He is the literal embodiment of guts, and being a badass, he marches into death with not an ounce of regret on his face; he has started something worse than the devil in the eyes and felt no fear; pain forges him more muscular, and he is unbeatable. He has done this for lengths beyond time and never gives up, no matter the cost.

Why are people’s favorite characters hardly ever the main character?

I can’t speak for everyone. No one can. However, one constant thing about almost every main character is…

They have plot armor. They are virtually unkillable because they are the main characters.

Now, this is only sometimes wholly accurate, but most of the time, it is, and it is usually apparent. The fact you know this character is not going to die, at least for good, forms a disconnect with most people.

Humans understand humans, and humans are vulnerable. Knowing a character isn’t weak leads to having trouble caring about them. Everyone is confident. The Main Character is going to survive. Even when they shouldn’t.

Then there is the common trait that The Main Character will overcome everything in their way, simply because they are the main character. It’s usually just a matter of time. Oh no, the main character is surrounded. they survived. Oh no, the main character is outmatched, and there’s no hope left; then, somehow, they overcome the stronger opponent because of “Hope” or “Love” or “Friendship” or somehow getting more robust, or they win out of pure luck. You get the point.

Most Main Characters are also either pure or on the side of the angels. They are the good guys/gals because they are the main characters, and you’re persuaded to root for them. Being the good person these days is… well, it’s a little unrelatable. From my viewpoint and probably many others, it seems that being a good person is just asking to lose because we’ve been good, and it didn’t make us invincible. We didn’t win. We didn’t overcome others because they were worse people. We lost because being good doesn’t change reality. Relating to a character that probably will never be lost and is the best of people feels like relating to something we could never be. This is why I think many people envy the likes of Superman and try to hate him to hide it.

15:Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Now, let’s talk about the other characters. The characters that don’t have plot armor, the trait of overcoming whatever, are usually far more flawed.

When they are in danger, they seem like they might die. When they encounter an obstacle, they seem limayWhen they survive and become stronger; it looks like they are that good, not just protected or amped by the plot. These same characters could be killed out of nowhere, injured, left behind, forgotten, or switched sides. Unlike most central characters, they are vulnerable, so there is an easier connection and relationship.

When these characters win or when they prove that the main character isn’t invincible (at least at the moment), then there’s excitement. I’d root for the side characters sometimes to see them shine. Heck, I’d root for the villains at times.

I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Of course, the Main Character/Hero usually gets back up or comes back later when they are more robust, or they just win through some means that don’t always make sense. Still, it’s always nice to see a character we know isn’t the Main Character; get some time to show us that it is only partially untouchable or unreachable.

Ultimately, it’s harder for a Main Character to seem relatable to me. Even at times, a villain appears more relatable.

Who is the most well-known fictional character in the world today?

Uncle Tom. Even though Tom was meant to (and did) create empathy among the white community to help end slavery, his name has become famous as a slur for Black people who are thought to be too White. In other words, those Blacks who don’t toe the liberal political line.

When President Lincoln first met Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, he told her, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that made this big war?”

The Reverend Josiah Henson.

Henson’s life experiences inspired Stowe’s creation of the character Uncle Tom in her 1852 outcry against slavery.
