If it were from a movie, I'd choose Cha Tae-sik aka Pawnshop. From The Man From Nowhere. He just kicks arse xD

I had a mid-thirties level character in Morrowind. Vvardenfell trembled in fear of me.

As a kid, that game was the first rpg I ever played.... I was a late starter.

Another one besides Old Snake will be Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell: Conviction

Considering YOU control how awesome he/she is, it's different from those posted.

Kratos and Snake can only be as cool as the game allows them to be. Alex Mercer is the same way.

However, you have choices with Shepard. Each class, background, etc has different outcomes. Even one conversation you think is unimportant can change how the game progresses. This makes you a much more powerful force in the universe than most other simple action games.

tl;dr: Action RPG characters > Action characters.

That is very very true! Which is one reason why I really liked the 1st fable game! The next two were boring, repetitive, and way overrated. Some of the ideas for them are cool, everything else greatly lacked.
But, I do very much agree with this. Makes it so you have to play it multiple times to see what you can do. Dragon Age does the same things too. It's a BioWare thing. But it just doesn't quite get my tractor running, if ya know what I mean! Only for the actual badass feeling portion. But, yes, i do like how the choices you make change everything.

My fury/MS warrior, Jax, in WoW BC, two 8/8 T6 sets, full season 3, gladiator, so good.

The next most awesome also happens to be named Jax, he's a League of Legends character. He's the most overlooked champ in my opinion, but quite the pentakiller.
