When asked about iconic fighting game characters, it’s common to hear the names of Ryu from Street Fighter or Jin Kazama from Tekken, but lets look at some of the stranger characters from some of the rosters. Characters that aren’t what you would call normal, be that storyline, move set or just looking like a freaky mess.
1 – Faust – Guilty Gear
Faust (aka Dr Baldhead) wear a paper bag on his head and wields a giant scalpel, he has a very unique fighting style and his finishing move is to stick his fingers up the opponents rectum. A good start to the list if you ask me.
2 – Hakan – Street Fighter 4
Initially the idea of having a turkish wrestler in street fighter 4 sounded great, but the general look of this red beefcake with what can be either hair or a helmet, I’m not sure, is reason enough for Hakan to be in the list.
3 – Big Band – SkullGirls
It is a dude with an orchestra under his raincoat!
4 – B.B Hood – Darkstalkers
Have you ever wondered what little red riding hood would like if she had a basket full of weapons? well you don’t need to wonder anymore, now we have B.B Hood.
5 – Voldo – Soul Calibur
One of the most fun characters to play in Soul Calibur, Voldo has a very unique move set of spins and attacks, plus he clearly is really into bondage. You do you Voldo.
6 – Arakune – BlazBlue
By far the weirdest character in Blazblue, an amalgamation of Nightmare before Christmas, Pokemon and Studio Ghibli.
7 – Gon – Tekken
The little orange dinosaur from Tekken is a knee high, thorn in the side of many a fighting gamer. This little dude is hard to hit and can embarrass the most hardened gamer through winning by farting.
8 – Phoenix Wright – Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom
This ace attorney was placed into a top fighting game with the likes of Captain America and the Hulk. he can only be half decent in a fight if he finds a few clues on the floor, just no.
9 – Mokap – Mortal Kombat
A dude in a motion capture suit. A motion capture suit!
10 – Meat – Mortal Kombat
Okay, so we have reached the pinnacle of nonsense. No this is not Lady Gaga, Meat is a Mortal Kombat character thats just a dude without skin, surely that is detrimental to fighting?
Thanks for checking out my list of the weirdest fighting game characters. Do you have any that should be on the list? Leave a comment and I’ll see you for another Game Legacies.
