I found this "video game legends" poster by Patrick Brown, which features a whole bunch of characters which appeared in video games:

enter image description here

I recognize some of the characters, but many are obscure to me. Observe that some of them originated from a video game (e.g. the Portal protagonist), and some of them didn't, but appeared in various video games all the same (e.g. Goku).

Who is everyone?

    I've seen similar questions being asked, so I hope this is okay.

    Mass identification questions are perfectly fine. Might be worth creating a labelled version of the image and posting it in a community wiki answer below to make this easier.

    @TheLethalCarrot I wouldn't say they're perfectly fine. A minority of users in this community (myself included) consider them too broad and tolerate them by downvoting them since we cannot close them.

    @Null Perfectly fine as in on topic and (currently, at least) not close worthy, not that they're universally accepted or liked.

  • I'm tempted to say that 15th could be Indiana Jones, but I don't have much proof of it beside the fact that I saw him take that position, remove his hat and brush his forehead, on a Super Nintendo game.

  • @Clockwork My first instinct was Max Payne, but I couldn't be certain either, so I just left it blank.

    80 is covering 2 things I think, I guess the "worm" would be a Worm from Worms but it needs labelling.

    @TheLethalCarrot - 80 is Pidgeot carrying Earthworm Jim (which is number 18)

    Number 2 appears to just be generic zombies as well. Slightly higher res image here (from the artists website) if it helps anyone see what they are
