Tony Soprano is the main character of the HBO drama series The Sopranos. He is a New Jersey Mafia boss who is constantly struggling to manage both his crime family and his actual biological family. Due to all this stress he frequently undergoes psychological therapy (which actually does nothing to deter his criminal habits) and has many strange dreams. Tony was played by the late James Gandolfini.
When the series finale of The Sopranos aired, viewers were widely expecting Tony to be killed in the final episode. However, the series instead ends with the show abruptly cutting to black during a mundane scene of Tony eating onion rings with his family in a restaurant, while the song "Don't Stop Believing" by the band Journey plays. This baffled and disappointed thousands of viewers around the world and was widely discussed in the entertainment media, inspiring numerous parodies. It is possible that Tony was in fact killed in the final scene, and the screen cutting to black represents him dying, but it is not confirmed either way and the series creator has stated that the ending was meant to be ambiguous.
Tony was ranked #33 on the Wizard Magazine List.
