For me Zezima will always be the king, I admire Zarfot a lot too for his efficiency. What N0va did was certainly a remarkable achievement. Players like Larryr, Lilyuffie88, Lover Romeo and Jebrim deserve a mention too imo. Larriar, the NPC who sells the runecrafting cape now is named after Larryr.

Renez, X Helchild X, Haha xp ocd have some pretty interesting hiscores as well :-P

Helchild has a pretty awesome yt channel too, he'll always be a legend in my eyes and then there are also the pure free-to-play legends like Mendark 9, Syzygy, S Diamant Y, El Popo1 and Water.

If S U O M I ever manages 200M in all skills he will top my list and I think the race currently between Telmomarques and Elias is making people notice them a little more.

The Old Nite

He was probably the nicest player I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Wish he was still around, I really enjoyed talking with him back when I was a noob.
99 HP, Attack, Strength, Defence, Summoning, Ranged, Herblore, Prayer, Agility, Magic, Slayer, Fletching, Fishing, Woodcutting, Mining, and Thieving.

Jagex'd out of my untrimmed hp cape on 6/14/2011.

I'll just name the people who have influenced me the most, as well as influencing many of the other players.

Blackbane,
the founder of the Order of Cabbage has influenced hundreds of players and changed their playstyle. Of course not alone, but he started the trend, and the snowball is still rolling and slowly growing, at times. Other OoC players have probably influenced me more, but Blackbane started it.

Axe Man Jack,
for having his slayer guide and founding the slayer's guild. Those combined got me hooked to slayer, now I just play to slay, if not picking cabbage. I'm sure many other players have gotten hooked on the slayer skill because of his decent guide for medium slayers (on nowaday standards) and the community of tsg.

These two have influenced some players heavily. Probably not recognised as much as highscore guys, but greatly affected the some people who have found out about them, changing their gaming style. Afterall, most highscore guys just make people admire them. (sure, some of them have brought out some good points and decent guides, but most of them just... are there, and not really changing the community)

I never really thought about players who influenced me, but Axe Man Jack really did. Like Mummi said, his guide inspired me to work on slayer and eventually got me hooked and determined to get 99.

All the people who influenced me the most are just people who I've met around runescape, not famous players. The awesome guy who gave me full iron, invited me to a clan chat and showed me good places to woodcut and fish when I left tutorial island back when rs was more difficult and felt loads bigger and more of a mystery than it does now, without that guy I would have got bored and probably logged out and forgot all about rs.
And some of my pker friends who showed me their insane loots, helped me with pking stats and tricks to survive, those guys inspired me to get good stats and made the pk world look glamorous when I was a noob, they were amazing. Famous players are cool and all but its the people personal to me who really inspired me.
If I had to say a famous player though it would be suomi, when I get bored grinding a skill I think of how he stuck at a fishing spot all the way to 200m fishing, then an agility course to 200m agility, then lrc to 200m mining and so on without ever seeming to get bored and still speaks to everyone who pms him and doesn't act like he's better than everyone else like some top players do and just genuinely enjoys the game instead of just caring for ranks or fame.

i guess zarfot influenced the way i play Runescape the most, his sense of humor and how efficient he was. he kind of proved you can have a normal life and still be at/near the top.

While we're add it we might add Vex for introducing us to Crawlerscape ;).

I'd put Zezima at #1 but I didn't play at the time he wasn't leading the hiscores.

Tbh I see all the new top players including Zarfot and others as new N0valyfe's. He was a player who started in RS2 and maxed out in a remarkably short time and got a huge amount of xp in his day.

All the efficiency players are just new breeds of n0valyfe.

Zezima and others are iconic to me because of the levels in classic.

The fact that he (or is it she? ) had 100m xp before the front page had all 99's is... there are no words for it

I know a lot of you aren't counting youtubers in this, but I have to mention MaxBoison and the rest of the video makers from his time.

They showed me that RS can be more than just skills and Quests :)

I'd have to go with Zezima as my uncontested #1. Although the list of influential people is massive for myself, 3hitu, mahatma, N0valyfe, and more-so in the past few years Toony and Zarfot. The way all these players changed the game was incredible, it literally blows my mind to think how far the game has gone in just 07 to now. I've been playing since 2002-2003 and the game has always changed and developed over the years and to see all of these players adapt to it with amazing speed is jaw-dropping.

Another special mention I'd have to give to Maximx, he was a fellow tipit-er, definitely what inspired me to train my skills at the time..Not too sure if anyone would remember him though.

The Old Nite was amazing. I remember talking to him once in Falador, thinking he was just some cool level 126 guy. Then a bit later I thought, "wait, that guy's name looked familiar... " Couple days later I saw his name in the high scores and flipped out :P

Also randomly saw Zezima one time but, clearly, never got a chance to speak with him. Neither did the 100-person mass following him :P

Most iconic players of all time in RuneScape are no doubt (hard to limit to just RS2 really):

Zezima
Bluerose13x
Duke Freedom
Chessy018
Zarfot

Of course there are many who have influenced the game alot, or even more, but these people were just so incredibly famous almost everyone, no matter did you play during their era or not, has heard about them. I have to say Zezima being the #1 simply due to fact that people who haven't ever even played RuneScape have heard of him. From friends playing RS and so on. Few times that I've seen him on game, he has always been surrounded by dozens and dozens of players just wanting to see a glimpse of his name.

Bluerose simply for being the only one with 99 smithing back in the days, and able to make R2Hs, which for long was the best weapon in the game and even longer in f2p.

Duke Freedom and Chessy simply for being so loaded it's hard to imagine.

And last but not least, Zarfot. For reasons posted multiple times above.

People who deserve a special mention: Renez (my personal favourite), Pure Kq Pax, Larryr, Jebrim, S U O M I, The Old Nite, N0valyfe..
