    I'm glad I watched this because I was trying to remember this one video game ruler, that I could see what he looked like in my mind's eye, but I couldn't remember his name for the life of me, nor what game he was in. Thankfully he was on this list at number 10: Oryx, The Taken King.

    Just clicked because the title is super confusing. Y'all need to work on that... or don't. I guess it did cause me to click on it.
    But seriously, video game is singular and plural. Like moose. Not knowing that really hurts your credibility on the subject.

    if you were going to pick a ruler from the final fantasy series, you could've gone with noctis, regis, ashe, garnet or even edgar. don't get me wrong, cecil is a good choice, just a little outdated is all and the series offers such variety

    • Myung Kou Kang
      Myung Kou Kang 10 месяцев назад

      While WatchMojo did not state the qualifier, the characters on this list needs to come from games first. Micky, though starring in games including Kingdom Hearts, started as a cartoon character first. So he does not count.

      Not always. She fights in "Super Mario Bros. 2," "Super Mario RPG," "Super Princess Peach," and "Super Mario 3D World," but yeah I agree that she's not a very effective ruler most of the time.

    • Darth Revan

      Question is, who qualifices for this list, every king(like Marth) and queen or also powerfull nobels(like Oliver) and generals (like Jarrod(yes not the best example but the first that came to me)?
