Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft is the most iconic character in gaming, according to the results of a new poll from BAFTA.

Ahead of the 20th BAFTA Games Awards on April 11, the organisation shared a survey to determine the most iconic gaming character of all time and who comes out on top?

Lara Croft came out on top, beating out Super Mario (who came second) and Sonic, who was voted the fourth most iconic character of all time.

The top 20 most iconic video game characters are:

  1. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
  2. Mario (Super Mario)
  3. Agent 47 (Hitman)
  4. Sonic The Hedgehog (Sonic)
  5. Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
  6. Pac-Man (Pac-Man)
  7. Link (The Legend Of Zelda)
  8. Master Chief (Halo)
  9. Kratos (God Of War)
  10. Shadowheart (Baldur’s Gate 3)
  11. Arthur Morgan (Red Dead Redemption 2)
  12. Pikachu (Pokémon)
  13. Steve (Minecraft)
  14. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid)
  15. Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot)

  17. Astarion (Baldur’s Gate 3)
  18. Kazuma Kiryu (Yakuza)

Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered was released earlier this year, bringing the first three Lara Croft-starring games to modern consoles. Amazon Games are also currently working on a new Tomb Raider title which will “unify” the series.
