Top 10 Badass Movie Characters

10. King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) – 300

Leonidas is the Spartan king who led his 300 of his best men into a battle against the huge Persian army in the year 480 B.C. The pass of Thermopylae is where this Spartan king and his army bravely sacrificed their lives for their country and ideals. In this movie adaptation of Frank Miller’s comic, Leonidas, portrayed by Gerard Butler, is an extremely memorable character and role. His motivational speeches were truly great and really gets the blood pumping through cinema-goers veins! It takes real courage to stand up to a giant Persian army with only 300 men – a well deserved and fought for place on Funzim’s list.



“The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed.”


“Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty… For tonight, WE DINE IN HELL!”
