10 Fictional Characters People Would Choose To Save if Their Life Was in Danger

Imagine a world where fictional characters were just as real as everyone else. How cool would that be? That would mean that you could stumble past Belle holding a book and singing in the market, or flash the bat symbol and wake up to a world with one less evil.

Of course, it's wishful thinking, but who would you choose if you were in a life-or-death situation where you had to pick one fictional character to save you? Here are fans' top picks according to an online forum.

A super-fan (last pun, I promise) says, “He's pretty emotionally and morally stable. 99% chance he's not going to turn on me or come with any tricks up his sleeve.”


Some say this is the only answer. Whether people are gunning for the character John Wick or the actor Keanu Reeves, who has a massive fan base, John Wick is a top choice.

One of the less popular names, except for gamers and real geeks, is Doom Slayer. The Doom Slayer is the main protagonist of the video game series Doom. He is a demon slayer and defender of Earth.

With his super strength, speed, healing abilities, energy projection and absorption, and more, you can count on both hands how many fictional characters are more powerful than him.


“Gandalf won't save you. He'll guide you on the path to saving yourself,” a movieholic says. A grey-haired sage is the worst or best person to save you from danger — I can't decide.


The silent ones are usually the most deadly. Geralt of Rivia (coughs, Henry Cavill) in The Witcher would save you and ensure you stay safe. That's a good man.
