Rama

The seventh incarnation of Vishnu.

The first was the fish; the second, the tortoise; the third, the boar; the fourth, the man-lion; the fifth, the dwarf; the sixth, Parus'u-Rama, son of Jamadagni; the seventh, RAMA, son of Dasaratha. King of Ayodhyâ; the eighth, Krishna or Crishna; the ninth, Buddha; and the last (tenth) will be Kalki, and the consummation of all things- a kind of millennium.

Rama performed many wonderful exploits, such as killing giants, demons, and monsters. He won Sita to wife because he was able to bend the bow of Siva.
