"Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice-skate uphill." Blade

Played By: Wesley Snipes
Film: Blade

Why He's On The List: First off, it's Blade, not Eric. So, that out of the way, let's focus on why Wesley Snipes' Daywalker is on the list. Maybe it's because he's an ultra-cool, uber-hard vampire hunter (he should have been called Buff The Vampire Slayer) with hardware that would make Van Helsing weep. Maybe it's the tats, or the funky kung-fu moves, or the sword. Or maybe it's the ridiculously oblique one-liners (see below). But we know what it isn't - it isn't because he's actually called Eric.

Finest Hour: His face-off with vampire flunky Quinn (Donal Logue), which begins with Blade decapitating him with a zipper and ends with Blade reclaiming his stolen sunglasses. Unbelievably cool.
