Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who are bigest badasses of gaming & movie characters of all time?

Movies - The Terminator from Terminator 2. One liners, badassery, and chain guns in a single movie? Oh hell yeah.

Games - Commander Shepard: It takes a real amount of balls to do some of the renegade stuff he does overall in the game. Punching a news anchor in the face? Awesome.



Why must JRPG female leads suck so bad?

Only shallow people who value brute strength over intellectual merit care about "bad ass" characters. My two cents.

Nice generalization.   Maybe I can make one of my own.  People who don't enjoy watching a little badassery on occasion would rather goto the Ballet with their boyfriends.  Ooops see what I did there?

In films, I quess I'd have to put Chuck Norris on #1. There's a fucking internet meme about his bad-assness.
On #2, I have Leonidas (300). As someone said before, it takes balls to fight thousands of Persians with only 300 soldiers and almost win.
On #3 I put Zaraki Kenpachi from the anime Bleach. This guy's so badass, that he intentionally blocks out most of his power to make sure he doesn't kill his opponents too easily, because that wouldn't be any fun. Also, Kenpachi's fearlessness edges insanity. If he would actually master Bankai he'd be #1. No, pull that, he'd be #-1.

For games, there's really only Duke Nukem. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of other badass characters, but they're ALL based on the proto-badassness of Duke Nukem. Just look at him:

Everything about him is badass. The picture is perfect. There's NOTHING to improve about his badassness. The army-haircut, the sunglasses, the big sigar, the bare, muscled arms, even the clothes he's wearing: everything is what you'd think of when you think badass.

But that's not even his coup de grace. That's his god damned one-liners. FUCK. There's just too many of them. When this guy opens his mouth, something awesome comes out. Always. If you'd take him imprisoned(hypothetically, because that's obviously impossible), take away his guns and tie him down on a chair, he'd just start talking about his balls of steel and everyone around him would die by being overwhelmed by too much bad-ass.

 

Anyone who denies the man is the biggest bad-ass in gaming, heck even outside of gaming, of ANYTHING, is delusional and should actually meet the Duke sometime.

That's because he's red hair :P



THE JOKER in the Dark night

and the Emperator in the gladiator Movie

Psycho Mantis always give me creeps in MGS1 ... mut on MGS4 i just feel soory about him.

And of Course SEPHIROTH



In my last hour I'm slave to power of death!!!

 

1) Master Chief- This guy is the epitomy of badassness.

2) Duke Nukem- Probably the original badass character in the gaming verse, he has it all including a smartass attitude.

3) Solid Snake- Even though I haven't cared too much about the last few games of the series. I think he should be on the list. Old enough to be my dad, he still has what it takes to kick a lot of ass.

4) Marcus Fenix- I probably should have him higher up on the list. Anyone with a chainsaw rifle doesn't need any words said about him. Just run away!

5)Sephiroth- Badest of all the Final Fantasy bad guys. Enough said.

Notable mentions*

Kratos, Ryu Hayabusa, James Earl Cash.

Whats on your list?

 

 

Master Chief? Youve gotta be kidding me. He's a Metroid rip off who shoots lasers at alien bugs.
