    Default Ultimate character gestalt!

    Suppose you were to take all the characters an actor or actress has played, and combine them into one supe character, who would be the greatest?

    "Greatest" can be defined in any way you like, whether that be "would win in a standard versus match", or simply "most awsome" (or "most ridiculous") character concept?

    (Only one rule: if you are proposing a verses match, you can't include anyone with "God" as part of their gestalt, unless fighting someone else with the same).

    For example, if you were to combine all Arnold Schwarzenegger's characters, you would get... actually, nothing that impressive, IMO. Most of his characters are fairly generic action heroes who wouldn't bring anything particularly special to the gestalt. So what you would end up with would basically be a wise-cracking Conan the Terminator, with good trap-making skills. Which, admitedly, is pretty powerful, and quite cool as well. But would probably lose badly in a fight with Summer Glau.


    I'd definitely vote for President Indiana Solo.


    I was going to say that the coolest character of all would probably be his father, Professor Henry Ramirez Ramius Bond. But then I remembered this.

    Other awesome gestalts will have to be Patric Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Xavier, Thane of Cawdor), and Ian McKellen.


    However, in terms of raw power and concentrated awesome, I don't think any of those could beat Jennifer Hale. Her Bioware roles alone should give her enough characterization, magic, and firepower to win at anything.


    So, can anyone think of any better gestalts? (Or any secret shames that would bring them down as badly as Connery?)

    I've often liked to pretend that every role Tom Hanks has ever played has just been another thing that happened to Forrest Gump.

    So do you even want to start on Mark Hamill?

    Anthony Hopkins?

    Sean Bean?

    I wonder how Alec Guinness would fare given one of his roles involved scenes after his character died?

    You for got Uriel Septim.

    He's Sir Captain Jean-Luc Xavier Septim, Emperor of Cyrodiil and Thane of Cawdor. A good vote.

    There's also the Sean Bean Death squad:


    In a fight, Morgan Freeman should win. He's not only a supernatural assassin and secret agent, but also god and the narrator.

    Are we limited to people who appeared on screen as titled roles, or are voice-actors included? The form would rule out Jennifer Hale and, sadly, Mark Hamill probably. But the latter would just be steamrolled by the dozen or so Japanese professionals that seem to do all the voices in the various anime.

    Also Starscream.
    True, that might actually be a more condensed group of professionals. Maybe we should just have two brackets, one for live-action and one for voice actors/motion captures?

    Brad Pitt has been unexamined by this thread. As an imaginary nazi hunting greek warrior robber rapist assassin, I think he would have quite an advantage.
    Also Liam Neeson, better known as Jedi Lion Jesus Zeus, going after his daughter's kidnappers after doubting Lancelot's loyalty can get a good advantage.
    And from Joss Whedon roles alone, Nathan Fillion deserves at least an honorable mention. Demonic priest space captain superhero and all. He could even solve crimes in his free time.
    Ceika is a beautiful, wonderful person and I have a deep crush on him/her. The avatar was made by his/her great talent, and depending on his/her sex and sexuality, I either have a giant crush or a totally appropriate liking for him/her.

    Christian Bale he's Batman, but also a boxer, a psychopath, a master of gun kata with the third highest movie body count ever and a stage magician.

    Megumi Hayashibara. Would you prefer to be Dragon Slaved, SolarBeamed, hugged and turned into tang, blasted from orbit, or possessed by ghosts?

    Nana Mizuki would also be a nightmare to fight (Riful of the West with a Byakugan, Rico with access to tons of magitech weapons, Fate with Nanami's athletic ability and Moka's vampiric body, Tsubasa with the ability to fuse with her armor...)

    I'm going to have to mention Neil Patrick Harris here. It wouldn't be anywhere near as powerful as some of the gestalts here, but Dr. Horrible + Barney Stinson would be a rather amusing combination.

    One that seems rather powerful is captain Tiberius Thor, who plays football and rides a motorcycle, though the fact that he's died in two of those three roles can diminish the effect.
    Jim Carrey is another superpower. Everything from God's powers to essentially being a living cartoon. Pretty soon also a psychotic superhero, but he's also been an incredibly devoted con artist.

    Personally, two of my favourite amalgams would be comprised by:(just using movies)

    Ian McKellen
    - Death (Last Action Hero)
    - Richard III
    - Magneto
    - Gandalf

    Ben Kingsley (due to the amount of inherently good/evil people he depicts)
    - Ghandi
    - Moses
    - Fagin from Oliver Twist
    - His role in Iron Man 3

    That and Brad Dourif, though his convergence of evil sociopaths would most likely lead to a bit of a problem.
