Badass video game characters

Video Game Characters: TGN’s Badass Picks

Let’s be real, we play a lot of video games. Day in and day out, we’re introduced to a substantial selection of new video game characters in the forms of friends and enemies.

Sometimes we’ll find video game characters who are so unfathomably awesome that they forge themselves a spot in our memories forever. Today, we look at the top 10 most badass video game characters of all time.

10. Ghost (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)

Sometimes the coolest video game characters don’t even need a face, and this is the case with Simon “Ghost” Riley. From his grizzled voice to his iconic skull balaclava, Ghost is undoubtedly one of the boldest and memorable characters in the entire Call of Duty franchise.

Although he is never playable, Ghost is almost certainly the poster boy for the series. Despite his (spoilers!) death at the hands of General Shepherd, he is still one of the most badass characters to grace our screens.

9. Sheik (Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Hyrule is full of colourful and charismatic characters. Contrasting this is the sheltered and secretive Sheik, who is a member of the Sheikah, a secretive tribe who (originally) served as guardians of the goddess Hylia.

Undoubtedly, Sheik’s most famous and potentially badass characteristic is that she is actually Princess Zelda in disguise. Despite this duality, both Sheik and Zelda are separate characters in the Smash Bros series, and Sheik remains an example of how a simple costume change can change a stalwart princess into a ninja-like badass.

8. Trevor Philips (Grand Theft Auto V)

Trevor’s no nonsense attitude towards life is what drives GTA V‘s chaotic gameplay. If Franklin reflects the climb to the top of the food chain, and Michael reflects what happens when you’re at the peak, then Trevor represents everything that players desire from GTA – explosive destruction.

There are two sides to every GTA game, the magnificent open world freedom and the unrepenting chaos. Trevor manifests the latter and due to his fiery outlook on life, he is a definite contender for one of the most badass video game characters ever.
