Most Bad-Ass Video Game Characters

Basically this is a list of characters that are basically unstoppable and can survive any situation. However this list is for everyone so post who you think deserves to be on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Kratos

Ok I know what you are thinking like everyone else has put him as number one. But listen this guy has not only killed multiple gods but has escaped the underworld many many times and not to mention the endless amount of limbs he has torn off with his bare hands so yes I think he deserves to be #1. - 0mega_Foxe

The most badass video game character of all times.Born as a warrior,died as a god.Escaped the underworld many times and destroyed Olympus.

2 Dante

Now I'm going to say that the original Dante is better than the new one and you can hate on me if you want. But he has always been a guy that has fun with his job which would be slaying demons. His sword can slice through anything his guns are always blazing and he has fun with it. I mean come on he had a class literally called trickster so what is not to love. - 0mega_Foxe

3 Liu Kang Liu Kang Liu Kang is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Mortal Kombat fighting game series from Midway Games, introduced as one of the original seven player characters in the 1992 first game as a Shaolin monk who enters the Mortal Kombat tournament to save Earthrealm.

Over the years he has became a favorite character to many people. I mean come on fireballs, flying kicks and bicycle kicks. Not to mention the heads kicked off and hearts punched through. Oh and did I mention that he can turn into a DRAGON! - 0mega_Foxe

4 Agent 47 Agent 47 Agent 47 is a fictional character and main protagonist of the Hitman video game series released by IO Interactive and Square Enix Europe.

Most people know him as 47 and he is the best assassin in the gaming world right now. He has killed everyone from the meat king to the crows. Even though he is an assassin he never misses church and never actually dies. And I don't think he ever will. - 0mega_Foxe

The most badass character ever this guy is a killing machine. He was made to be just that, if agent 47 wants you dead you're dead there is no escape!

He is badass but still reasonable. He should be the first!

5 John Marston John Marston

Although his gaming career was short I've always enjoyed riding on my horse and lassoing a criminal. Basically he was a man put in a situation where the only solution was to die doing what he loved and that was shooting. So yea great job John. - 0mega_Foxe

6 Alice

This would be the Alice from the madness returns. This to me was always a great game I mean evil porcelain dolls and weird mechanical rabbit creatures. She also has four weapons: the vorpal blade, the hobby horse, the teapot cannon, and the pepper grinder. - 0mega_Foxe

7 Lara Croft Lara Croft Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

She has always impressed me with her limitless stamina and agility. Although I've not played many of her games the ones I have are really good. The only thing I don't like is her creepy butler in the third one. - 0mega_Foxe

8 Leon S. Kennedy Leon S. Kennedy

This man alone started a new era in zombie alien creature killing. I mean sure I could have just as easily picked Chris Redfield but he had a partner. You know what Leon had a almost good for nothing girl who gets kidnapped regularly and does nothing to fight back so the only thing she can do is hide. So yea Leon for the win. - 0mega_Foxe

9 Master Chief Master Chief Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

Destroyed a halo ring, survived reentry from orbit, can take down armies of baddies, flips tanks, and is lucky!

Survived atmospheric re entry by jumping off a spaceship. Destroyed a halo ring. Singlehandedly defeated the covenant. One of the last surviving spartan 2s. And chiefs greatest line ever...

Cortana: Just one question, what if you miss?

Chief: I won't.

Chief is the definition of badassery.

Why the heck isn't masterchief number 1

10 Sans (Undertale) Sans (Undertale) Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult more.

This is pretty much the hardest battle in gaming history, how is he #9?

He needs to be 10

11 Solid Snake Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

He can take down multiple wartanks by himself most times


12 Lee Everett Lee Everett Lee Everett is the main character of the first season of The Walking Dead video game. Lee is the player character in the first season of the game, appearing in five episodes.

I say Lee, I mean would have the guts to fight his way through a zombie infested street with 1 arm and the only weapon a cleaver OR both arms with only a cleaver and a shard ( broken glass ) as his weapons, just to save the only person he was left to care about and just maybe make it out in time with her to safety before he died from the bite on his arm. This scene just looks so badass! He feared nothing and protected Clementine no matter what. He spent his last hours of his life struggling to find Clementine and her Kidnapper. He was kind of weak because of the zombie bite by the time he found Clementine and her kidnapper YET he still fought with her kidnapper. If you decide to cut his arm off, The scene of him and the Clementines Kidnapper fighting looks more badass, Lee can also strangle him to death with one arm but of course that relays on the person's decisions.

Lee Everett was just a Human Being. He had no special powers such or gadgets like these other characters on this list. Remove the special powers and gadgets from all the other characters on this list. They wouldn't be as badass as Lee if that would occur.

What? Lee is LOWER than Undertale Sans on the list? That's it, time to kill myself...

13 Edward Kenway

Not only is he in the third sequel to Assassin's Creed but he a pirate assassin. He sails the ocean blue stealing things and killing people. But always has time to go harpooning. So yes a very great character in general. - 0mega_Foxe

14 Gordon Freeman Gordon Freeman Dr. Gordon Freeman is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Half-Life video game series, created by Gabe Newell and designed by Newell and Marc Laidlaw of Valve Corporation.

He is the most powerful nerd ever. He fights zombies and head crabs with a crowbar. Well I don't know much else about him but I'm planning to find out more until then this is all I have to say. - 0mega_Foxe
