The Best Red Characters

List Rules
Characters must have red skin, red fur, and/or red hair. Red clothes don't count.

We’re ranking the best red characters of all time. From Daredevil to Deadpool, Mario and even Optimus Prime, this list includes everything from classic TV and movie icons to cute characters like that giant lovable dog Clifford.

Red is often referred to as the color of passion, provocation, and courage. It's an easy color to spot and it definitely makes a strong impression—it’s no wonder so many superheroes wear red. Which classic character do you think wears red the best?

Vote up the best red characters, and vote down the ones you don’t like.
