    How about Andy from Advance Wars? His special move is to perform maintenance on all his machines, restoring 2 HP to all of them, thus he actually does something with his skill. Then again, he also asks what an airport is.

    To be clear, this list is about mechanics, not engineers. Which is why: no Isaac Clarke and Baird from Gears.

    Catch a ride?
  • communinja - August 12, 2013 12:14 p.m.

    And: no Cid from (just about every) Final Fantasy
  • Cariosus - August 11, 2013 7:15 a.m.

    Totally agree, where the heck is Isaac Clark in this list. The true mechanic, he repairs space ships, re-engineers planetary graviflux whatchamacallits then hobbles together a bouncing (how does it do that again?) laser line cannon with a rocket launcher supplied by scrap metal. COME ON

    Scooter is a mechanic too right? I would have put him ahead of Ellie.
  • SuperSATA - August 12, 2013 7:59 a.m.

    Why not both?
  • wedgie - August 10, 2013 11:16 a.m.

    I would also throw in keira from Jak and Daxter. One of the best, and pretty essential
  • vincentdarkwood - August 10, 2013 7:45 a.m.

    No Engie from Team Fortress 2???
  • kaleb-mayhew - August 12, 2013 9:15 a.m.

    he's an engineer not a mechanic
  • vincentdarkwood - August 12, 2013 2:38 p.m.

    He is a mechanical engineer
  • terrapede - August 10, 2013 1:27 a.m.

    Thought this list was pretty weak... no Alyx Vance? No Cid from any Final Fantasy? How about Edgar Figaro, or Lucca from Chrono Trigger?
  • xShaDe - August 9, 2013 8:49 p.m.

    Ratchet & Clank super gameplay and storyline first one is da best ^.^
  • pl4y4h - August 9, 2013 1:13 p.m.

    Bringing Metal Arms into the scene again I throw in Krunk (and technically Glitch since he can dismantle and rebuild himself with ease).
  • Cyberninja - August 9, 2013 12:43 p.m.

    Tails does fix machines in Sonic Adventure and in 2 he had his own mech.
  • Hyperion - August 9, 2013 12:27 p.m.

    alex vance?
  • BladedFalcon - August 9, 2013 12:02 p.m.

    I've never really understood how you guys constantly berate against characters like Slippy and Tails, and even put them on other lists of the top annoying sidekicks... Then include them in any "our favorite" lists >_> Either you like the characters or not, make up your mind GR :P
  • Cyberninja - August 9, 2013 12:42 p.m.

    different writers, one may hate a character another may like them.
  • BladedFalcon - August 9, 2013 3 p.m.

    I guess, it's just kinda jarring to see several articles in which they keep harping about how annoying slippy is, or how Tails and any other Sonic "friend" is lame, and then see them being recognized as loved in some way in another list XD I do understand that different writers have very different opinions even on the same site though, so I guess asking for consistency on EVERYTHING would be kinda unreasonable ^^;

    I ended up killing the Mechanist in Fallout 3. And I hated Brucie. I thought he was an obnoxious douchebag; definitly one of my least favorite GTA characters.
