All of them!

Erm - a lot of the main Discworld characters. They have hilarious lives. Yes, even Nobby... even Rincewind.
Woland from The Master and Margarita. Because he's bamf. And, okay, the devil, but shhh...
Jack from the Talisman.
The main characters in quite a few Bradbury short stories. Say what you like about the man, but he had a way of infusing the written word with such wonder and enchantment, and I cried like a baby when he died.
A couple of the main characters in Clive Barker's fantasy/Y.A exploits - Abarat, The Thief of Always, etc. I know, I'm a grown adult, I shouldn't like those books - but I'm also a kid at heart.
Bilbo - come on, you know I'm a Hobbit geek (*cough*whohasn'tseenthefilm*cough*)


Errrrmmm... I'm trying to think of more. There's tons. I think the crux of it is - anyone who goes out and has an awesome adventure. Maybe a bittersweet one, maybe a difficult one, maybe one that ends in tragedy or near enough, but all the same, just something different and dangerous and spectacular. Because you know that I was totally the kind of kid who, when playing make-believe, was battling the legions of the undead whilst my friends were playing mummies and babies. Seriously :P

Films - I would totally be a ghostbuster! There's tons more where that came from, but I really love Ghostbusters.

Also, if I could teleport into the Futurama / Red Dwarf / Farscape universes / be one of the characters for a day, that would be just awesome. Seriously, why is my life not like those shows? Oh, the humility!

I think what I'm trying to say is - I am a giant loser. That is all.

EDIT: Also, The Tick! To be that giant, blue, insane and utterly ridiculous would be amazing.

a.k.a The Dying Daylight in disguise, or Wino Horse... either way.
