(I am sorry if there was already such a post - I searched the forums for the words RPG and Role-Playing in titles and found nothing.)
I was thinking for some time about making a thread in which people can show off their coolest RPG characters. It would be better if you post about PnP characters, since they usually have more depth than CRPG characters, although both are welcome.
I will start with my coolest one: Fredegar Milestone! (Said with a French accent.)
Fredegar happens to be the unlikely character of a level 5 French-accented-hobbit-swashbuckler. As expected, he is arrogant, although not as over-confident as some NPC he meets. His favourite insult (currently) is 'Barbarian'. His alignment is currently Neutral.
Game: Dungeons and Dragons. (the DM's personal edition.)
Smoke-Art: usage of his pipe-smoke in order to impress others and gain advantage during combat. (The only way a hobbit can fight and still look like a hobbit.)
Illusions: Fredegar can make others believe that his hair is on fire, or that he is 4 metres tall. (But not both at the same time.)
Jump-Attack: Fredegar can jump a great distance, and use it for his advantage in battle.
Insult-Swordfighting: Updated: Fredegar doesn't get any bonus from it yet, but he got a critical hit when threatening the enemy with death from above before performing a high jump attack.
UPDATED: Tropes that fit the character:
Acceptable Professional Target: Knights. Being a swashbuckler, it is quite natural for him to dislike heavily armoured cowards who receive respect and never show it back. (In his opinion, at least, although most knights seen in the campaign fit the description quite well.) He also dislikes barbarians, and gives this definition generously. Barbarian is Fredegar's favourite insult.
Catch Phrase: Barbarian.
Coup de Grace: When he doesn't get the chance to deliver one to a 'boss', he pretends to with a varying degree of success.
Glass Cannon: To some degree: Only the wizard has less hit points than Fredegar. However, he does have the best armour class in the party (and can improve the party's armour class with an aura) and the best saving throws. He IS a swashbuckler, which in this case means that he is even faster than the centaur (while the latter wears armour, at least) and has a counter attack ability and extremely accurate attacks, which he can boost with his skills.
Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: He is a pipe smoking hobbit, which is an indicator for good smoking, of course!
The Hero: When he met the party, he didn't offer to join them. He offered to lead them. They accepted, and Fredegar doesn't forget that. His lancer is Sir (or is that Ser?) Rodlin, a centaur knight who happens to be an actual lancer.
Self Proclaimed Heroes Prefer Swords
Overly Long Gag: When a party character really anoyed him, he told him the following insult: 'May the others take you and make you one of them! Then, may you be sent to the Oblivion, and may a rain of obsidian fall upon you, and kill you, as you are one of the others!'
Swashbuckler: Without a buckler.
Too Cool to Die: Fredegar survived more than one battle with one hitpoint.
You Fight Like a Cow
Gain reputation before level 7. (At level 7, characters in the game gain reputation.)
Change the Night's Watch robe colour to white, as it seems more effective. (Our campaign is partially based on 'A Song of Ice and Fire'. Only our DM, who is older than the players, read it, so it works well.)
So, what do you say about Fredegar? And do you have other cool characters to post?
