10. Shadow from Final Fantasy VI

What’s cooler than a ninja? How about a ninja with a ninja dog? Shadow never goes anywhere without his faithful pooch companion, Interceptor, by his side. And Shadow’s so badass, he doesn’t even stay in your party that long if he doesn’t want to.

Shadow doesn’t care. He’s a ninja, dammit, and ninjas have their own code of ethics. As Edgar would say, he’d slit his own mama’s throat for some gwap. Yeah, Shadow’s the shiiiit.
