List of Video Game Badasses


Registered Member
Let's comprise a list of video game badasses. Some rules:

1) List ONE character from a game (make sure to mention the game)

2) Write a paragraph on why you think he's a badass. Describe the character etc.

3) Wait until someone else replies before you add another to the list.

Ill start

1) Marcus Fenix (Gears of War) - Marcus' voice is rough and hard just like his physical features. He is battle worn soldier with scars to show for his military prowess. Although his past remains much of a mystery this much is known; he was serving time in prison at the start of Gears.

But what makes Marcus different than from the faceless and emotionless heroes like the Master Chief or Gordan Freeman is his personality. Whether hes barking orders to his squad mates, cursing when he jams his gun, or simply screaming when he's chainsawing a Locust in half his voice seems to carry an air of anger or irritation. He's one of the few characters in video games that isnt a perfect hero.

1) List ONE character from a game (make sure to mention the game)
Kratos, GOD OF WAR

2) Write a paragraph on why you think he's a badass. Describe the character etc.
Without spoiling the game too much, Kratos is a cursed Spartan soldier (see also: Mack truck) who has two chained swords flame-seared into his forearms and one horribly short temper. From his brutal killing manuevers and vicious battle tactics, Kratos is easily one the most bad ass game characters ever and will be remembered by all who played his games.


Ms. Malone
Sam Fisher- Splinter Cell

Sam gets to do all these cool missions, he gets cool toys, weaponry and is damn whitty; over all he's just a coll character and i like his deep voice for some reason, it makes him sounds mysterious. He always gets the job done no matter what the situation and is really good at gathering information.


Forum Drifter
Sephiroth - Final Fantasy VII

Ultimate badass who is very driven in his task. Carries a big-ass sword and devastates everything that gets in his way. Don't cross him. Cloud, seriously, should not have kicked his butt so easily.


AKA Ass-Bandit
Duke Nukem (the Duke Nukem series)

Simply put, Duke is one badass mother fucker. He goes out and fights mutant aliens on a daily basis, pulls out a ton of awesome one-liners, commands a large arsenal of weaponry (including his big boot), and despite being highly outnumbered, always manages to kick some alien ass. He's straight and to the point, and you won't get much deeper than that.


e̳̳̺͕ͬ̓̑̂ͮͦͣ͒͒h̙ͦ̔͂?̅̂ ̾͗̑
Solid Snake - Metal Gear series

Snake is what happens when you put everything badass into a blender, mix with napalm, garnish with AP rounds, and then serve with a grenade to the face. Between shooting down helicopters and blowing up nuclear equipped mechs, he tends to wax philosophical on what it means to be a soldier. If you call him a pussy for it, though, he'll shoot you with a rocket launcher, and then spit blood and piss vinegar in your eyes.


Certified Shitlord
Dante - DEVIL MAY CRY (series)

Dante is bad ass in it's purified, untainted form. There really isn't too much to say, it's all experience. Play the first Devil May Cry. He's suave, immortal, gritty, and prepared to kill anything from any realm.

Wario, from the Super Mario saga

Mario needed a comical villain and Wario is it, straight out of Bizzaro World. He's evil, he farts and rides a motorcycle (see SSBM trailer for the Wii) and he causes chaos instead of stealing Princess in the hopes of getting laid. Bowser you could learn a few things from Wario
