Which fantasy character list gives you everyone from Ali Baba to Drizzt Do'Urden? The fantasy character brings you an archetype to learn from or to yearn to be. Whether you love them or hate them, these characters are my top ten best characters. Some are good, some are evil, others walk that fine line between the two, but they are all awesome.
Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The Top 10 Characters of Fantasy Stories

Yeah, I started off with a pair. However, these two guys are an example of good, evil and neutral characters. They used might and magic to get what they needed. Sometimes for good, sometimes for ill. Yet, they were amazing characters. see more on Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser
Lancelot is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Top 10 Characters of Fantasy Stories

A bit on the side of classic instead of fantasy, yet Lancelot is an archetypal character that he has to go in here. He was a champion of King Arthur! He deserves some credit. see more on Lancelot
Conan the Barbarian is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Top 10 Characters of Fantasy Stories

A barbarian, yes. Yet, also a pirate and ruler. He is a mighty warrior, though not like the movies. He is more eloquent in his actions and speech than punching a horse in the mouth. see more on Conan the Barbarian
Elric of Melniboné is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Top 10 Characters of Fantasy Stories

This guy is not the typical warrior. An albino who must defeat his brother, who is a mighty warrior. What can he do? Use magic and find a sword that will grant him the strength to do it. All that needs to be done is make pacts with demons and devils. Such is life for a pale guy from another dimension. see more on Elric of Melniboné
