Toki Wartooth.  For that matter, the entire band.  Toki just stands out because he's the most innocent.


There are probably more.  I know there are more.  This topic is conducive to multiple posts.

Stephen Maturin and Jack Aubrey from the Patrick O'Brian novels (they were okay in the movie, but frankly not nearly as awesome, especially Stephen).

I mean, Stephen is a world-renowned scientist, amazing (perhaps House-like) Doctor, accomplished duellist, wildly adventurous pharmocological self-experimenter and incredibly able spy.  (So no, as cute as womenfolk may have found Paul Bettany, he didn't do him justice).

Jack is a brilliant tactician, oaf, accomplished astronomer and mathematician, surprisingly well-meaning/naive rake and brilliant musician.

BFF.

Lyra from the His Dark Materials series, not just because she's a lady but because her main strength is not honour or character but because she's an amazing liar.

Also, the entire cast of the Venture Brothers.

If we're being pedantic about it, Border Reiver, Edmund from the first series wasn't called Edmund Blackadder, he was Prince Edmund aka "The Black Adder" and the show was also called The Black Adder. Blackadder as far as I'm concerned refers to the series in general

Yeah that's right  8-)

One of my favourite fictional characters is definitely based on Holmes. Special Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks.

A while back we had a thread where you picked two fictional characters who you felt in some way represented yourself. As a joke, I picked Arthur Dent and Humbert Humbert. With hindsight it's actually pretty accurate, which makes it even funnier.

Don Vito Corleone aka "The Godfather"

He started as a poor immigrant who spoke no English, and became arguably the most powerful man in New York. 
His morals were beyond reproach.  You do what is right, you do what needs to be done, period.  You do not cheat on your wife.  You do what you said you would do, period.
Yes, he broke many laws.  But he never hurt anyone who was not trying to hurt him or his family, and who was not also a criminal.
He was generous and loving to his friends.  His enemies... well, their feelings did not matter; they were his enemies.
His did everything he did for his family. "A man who does not spend time with his family can never be a real man."

Uncle Toby from Tristram Shandy.

Quote
My uncle Toby was a man patient of injuries; not from want of courage; I have told you in a previous chapter, "that he was a man of courage:" and will add here, that where just occasions presented, or called it forth, I know no man under whose arm I would have sooner taken shelter; nor did this arise from any insensibility or obtuseness of his intellectual parts; for he felt this insult of my father as feelingly as a man could do; but he was of a peaceful, placid nature, no jarring element in it, all was mixed up so kindly within him; my uncle Toby had scarce a heart to retaliate upon a fly.

Go, says he, one day at dinner, to an overgrown one which had buzzed about his nose, and tormented him cruelly all dinner-time, and which, after infinite attempts, he had caught at last, as it flew by him; I'll not hurt thee, says my uncle Toby, rising from his chair, and going across the room, with the fly in his hand, I'll not hurt a hair of thy head: Go, says he, lifting up the sash, and opening his hand as he spoke, to let it escape: go, poor devil, get thee gone, why should I hurt thee? This world surely is wide enough to hold both thee and me.

Argh.  That book is staring at me on my bookshelf right now.  Nabokov loved it, and it apparently influenced Gogol and Pushkin.  I want to read it!  But diving into a 500+ page novel right as exams are about to start probably isn't a good idea.
