7C has got to be Syndrome, from the Incredibles.

I was uncertain before about 7B—the language of the question seemed like a quotation—but looks like 7’s theme confirms the Death STAR.

Switchnode: Or a Super STAR Destroyer. Death Star was more of a space station.

Now that the themes are figured out, this is somewhat simpler.

1H: Strong Bad.

2A: The Great Gazoo.
2E: “Great Stump”, from “A Wheel of Time”
2F: From the episode, “Homer The Great”
2G: Tolkien’s Great Eagles.
2I: “The Great Escape”.

3B: “Saint Petersburg”, a card game.

4F: The “Darkglass Mountain” trilogy.
4H: The Glass Bead Game, from the book of the same name.
4I: The Gallowglas-class ‘mech.

5A: “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things”

5I: The Ook and the Znutar, as noted, were from the boardgame “Awful Green Things From Outer Space” (haven’t seen that one in 25 years).

6B: Sam Bell, in “Moon”.
6F: Pretty sure this is a reference to a Supernatural episode called “Dark Side of the Moon”.
6G: The Sigmund Corp, from the videogame “To The Moon”.

3F: Monty Python’s Saint Victor cried out, “This…is fantastic! Oh…this is terrific!”, and later that the Lord was a rotten bastard.

3H: Various Batman books — The Order of St Dumas.

3I: I was trying so hard to figure out where “Things To Do in Denver When You’re Dead” fit in category 5, I completely overlooked this question. “Jimmy the Saint”.

Is 1B a bad enough dude? As in, a dude who is bad enough to rescue the President (and subsequently have a burger with him)?

I’m suprised no-one’s spotted 2H yet (“Great Ceasar’s Ghost!”) – which confirms that 2’s theme is “great”… And therefore 2C is indeed The Great Muta, and not Ric Flair like I was originally going to post. Well spotted, Cesari (Ceasar!).

Oh, and 6H is indeed Moon Knight. The TV show was was part of Bendis’s (rather frustrating) run. I wish people’d stop resetting the entire supporting cast every single time they relaunch his ongoing…

(I’m a Moon Knight and a Kane fan – I’m obviously a sucker for once-a-year abortive pushes!)

5B may be Ms. Thing from the current FF series

5G is probably Benjy Grimm (“Thing rings, do your thing!”) from the 70s era Thing cartoon.

My guess for 6I is Hugo Danner from the novel Gladiator.

Do I get partial credit for at least knowing that exists?

Of course! You would get even more credit if the word “Moon” figured into it somehow (see above).

1B Bill and Ted?

If 7 is star, then 7E is just “stars” (the Malloreon–prophecy of Torak)

My best guess for 6I is Jack Russell, Werewolf by Night, but you guys kicked some major butt on this thing and I am impressed

ONE
a. Who

b. Yes he did.

c. There’s no one else in the universe that would hate him that much.

d. He’s not illiterate, he only reads his native Gallifreyan without Tardis help though.

e. I think it was #10, in that episode where there is a clone version.

f. When that hunter was a Dalek sent after the wrong Time Lord.

g. Well when he first touched reincarnated and thought he was a girl it might have been vanity, but I don’t think so.

h. Ok, well it wasn’t really a dream. He was going to scrub that space whale because he thought it was the kindest thing under the circumstances.

i. Sontarans.
