"Who's the only one here who knows illegal ninja moves from the government?" Napolean Dynamite

Played By: Jon Heder
Film: Napoleon Dynamite

Why He's On The List: Another kid with a name like a superhero, you can certainly say that Napoleon is his own man (well, boy). Although a high-schooler, his lifestyle has ground to a halt at that point in childhood where everyone is dead sure of their own coolness. It's only through this self-assuredness that Napoleon makes it through his days in Preston, Idaho, and by the film's end, he's some kind of hero - although nobody's exactly sure what.

Finest Hour: Dancing in front of the whole school as part of friend Pedro's campaign for class president.
