Who are your top ten favorite movie characters?

I'll take any character from any genre, gimmie more than ten if you want.

Currently mine are:

1.Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver)

2.Walter Sobchak (Big Lebowski)

3.Derek Vinyard (American History X)

4.Kakihara (Ichi the Killer)

5.Tyler Durden (Fight Club)

6.Amelie

7.Hannibal Lector (Silence of the Lambs)

8.Drexl Spivey (True Romance)

9.Jesus Quintana (Big Lebowski)

10.Karl Childers (Sling Blade)

Update:

Cathy: Very good point. Women in hollywood are rarely ever given characters with substance, and even less often allowed to play iconic roles.

Let me throw in Sara Goldfarb from Requiem For a Dream, Dorothy from Wizard Of Oz and Aileen Wuornos from Monster.

Update 2:

Dammit, I forgot Leon from the Proffesional and Fred Fenster from usual suspects. I always want to edit my list as soon as its done.
