When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
~ Sherlock Holmes The Sign of the Four


Sherlock Holmes is a hero made famous in his many books, films and television series. He was created by the writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

He is a Victorian-era detective who is quite possibly the smartest man alive, using his amazing brainpower to out-think a number of villains and solve seemingly impossible cases.

Adaptations

2009 Film Adaptation and Sequels

In 2009 adaptations, Sherlock Holmes is portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

Personality

Sherlock is eccentric, brave, and extremely intelligent. He has his own degree of personal cunning and a slightly suave demeanour. He is focused, vengeful and rather egotistical and strong-minded. He is also devilishly enigmatic and seemed to be clever enough to surpass James Moriarty, who was himself mentally inordinately agile. He cares deeply about John Watson, enough to challenge Moriarty about it. He also thought he was more devious than Moriarty.

However, despite his brilliance, Sherlock is categorized as being selfish, narcissistic, rude, and rather crass. He sometimes appears to lack basic empathy, however he is shown to display manners, on certain occasions.

Holmes is also a master manipulator, multiple times he has tricked Watson into helping him despite Watson's protests.
