List Rules Smart, sexy, funny male fictional characters that you would actually want to be with. . . if they were real, of course. Characters can be from TV or film.

We all like to fantasize and daydream about our favorite hot fictional characters. Maybe you've struck some kind of a deal with your romantic partner - if Sam and Dean Winchester come to life, you're allowed a hall pass for the weekend. Or maybe you keep your passionate devotion to Fox Mulder or Han Solo on the down low. Whatever the case, it's fun to imagine what it would be like to spend time with one of these handsome fictional men.

Categorizing them can be tricky, because some of these sexy, fictional dudes come with a lot of baggage. For example, we all know how sexy Christian Grey and Edward Cullen are, but would you REALLY want to deal with all of their weird emotional issues? Could you look past Loki's mischievous ways and look only to his righteous abs? Would Tony Stark's good looks be enough to drown out his extreme narcissism? These are the questions you'll have to answer as you pour over this list of fictional characters you'd leave your man for.

How do your hot fictional characters skew? Are you more about the good guys, like Thor and Elliot Stabler, or do the bad boys get your blood flowing, like Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Or are you interested in just the right mix of Stiles, Sherlock Holmes, and Magic Mike?

However your list stacks up, have fun picking and choosing the fictional characters you'd leave your man for. A little crush on someone you could never actually get with is completely healthy and normal. Vote up the hottest fictional male characters, and be sure to add any to the list that we may have forgotten!
