Second row, 9th character is Xan (boss from Unreal Tournament).

Great sprites, btw!  :)

6th row, second one in looks a lot like a Zealot from starcraft.

Other than that, I know no unknown.

On the fourth row are Rinsewind and The Luggage, of course. And first on third row - Wilco and Gybrash?
After elvis and peach - Alyx. After Indy - Zealot from StarCraft. After Samus - looks like Necromanser in Diablo II

So easily recognizable with so few pixels. You have a way with colors :)

I find the poses of the shooting people odd, they're leaning forward too much it seems.

Third guy from the top looks like a Star Trek (new generation) character, though the guns aren't held with two hands so it may not be it.

The one beside Megaman is definately Cosmo ('s Cosmic Adventure).  Quite a few shareware references, I see :)

Wow, just, Wow.  That is awesome they are mostly recognizable without having to over exaggerate features, not that you would have had the space for it.  Of them all favorite is Optimus, but I agree that the shooting people all seem like they are bracing for a huge recoil.

Okay, so I'm designing the game they're going to be used in now. Think of a cross between Worms, Unreal Tournament and Lemmings. Before the level starts you'd buy yourself an army of these guys. After it starts you could deploy whoever you need whenever you need them. You can set them to do simple tasks like Defend the Base, Attack the Enemy, Take the Flag. They could be sent in in groups or one at a time. You'd also be able to control one at a time directly with the keyboard, if you controlled a character from a group, everyone from that group would try to emulate what you do.

Each character would have their own specific uses:

Lincoln would have an oratory skill that would power up all friendlies on the map.
Rincewind would be very fast, and always followed closely by the luggage, an extremely deadly mle fighter.
Stormtroopers would just be armed meatshields, spraying blaster bolts pell-mell, willy-nilly.
Vader would be a powerful but slow character, tough as well as difficult to hit, and deadly in close quarters.
Cosmo would able to use his suction cup hands to climb to places other characters can't get to.
Lemmings could use their umbrellas to jump off very high places, as well as build walls and stairs wherever you command.
Necromancer would raise the dead as moderately powerful skeletons.
Merlin would have a variety of offensive and defensive spells.
Elvis could use his music to start everyone in a certain radius dancing.
Moses could call down lightning to kill the enemies, or manna to heal friendlies.
Jessica rabbit, Monroe, and Esmeralda could seduce enemy characters into switching teams, with various other stats.
Gump would just wander around the map, activating random events.
Holmes would examine corpses of enemies and inform everyone of weaknesses, improving damage against that type.
Doughboy would be able to take massive amounts of damage.
I think we all know what Chuck Norris would do.

This would be a crazy amount of work and I'd probably need a lot of help, especially programming-wise, but I really really like the idea so far.  :D
