Biggest Badass In Video Game History
The Top Ten
This dude kills literal gods in an unparalleled fit of rage. Duke Nukem may have the best one-liners, and Master Chief may have a load of steroids and power armor, but Kratos killed the gods of war and death and the goddess of wisdom and strength among countless other gods and demigods, and did so with a few bladed weapons and his own fury.
Okay Okay the reason why the Ghost of Sparta and the New God of War, Kratos is the number on biggest badass in video gaming history is because he is often forced adventures in attempts to avert disaster or change his fate. Kratos is usually portrayed as being oblivious to all else in the execution of these adventures, often engaging in morally ambiguous activities and performing acts of extreme violence. Kratos us most commonly for being described by reviewers as a "sympathetic antihero". Who is more ruthless? More Savage? More Merciless? No One Krato
S is the ultimate badass! - anthonybecerra831
Kratos is the most badass fictional character by far. He literally killed every one who stood in his way.
He killed all the gods.
He killed the sisters of fate which are supposed to control everything and even they couldn't control his wrath. And he started only as a spartan warrior.
This guy would rip through master chief and Duke nukem like ants, God of War is the manliest gaming series going in my opinion.
Solid snake is the best end of discussion.
Snake, snake answer me, snake
I can tell he should be number one on this list, and I didn't even start playing Metal Gear Solid V (or any Metal Gear game for that matter) until today. - RalphBob
He is proberly the best spy out there
He saved humanity from a fate that puny Kratos god of patheticness could not save himself from
He flip tanks and that's only a minor portion of his badassery... "to give the covernant back their bomb". Most badass dude ever
Duke nukem is reasonable but true fans know either master chief, kratos, soap or solid snake/ big boss should be at the top and for me it is mean green killing machine john 117 (master chief)
8 foot tall wall of armor who takes down anything in his way
-He can kill countless aliens and still have time to step into a Strip Club
-He can be in loads of bad or criticly slammed games and still remain one of the greatest badasses of all time
-Every man wants to be him, every women wants to bed him.
-He's the King
... What more need to say?
And to think the voice actor for duke once voiced Big The Cat. "the more you know"
It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum
Duke nukem the definition of badass
Vito should be #1. He has beaten the crap out of so many people with his bare hands. He has taken down armies of Mafia men who are armed to the teeth with Tommy gun's, with a single pistol, while looking good in a three piece suit. He took down Brian O'Neill, who was three times his size, by using his own knife against him. If Master Chief wasn't genetically enhanced and didn't have armor on, Vito would win in a fight. With or without guns. Vito would also beat Captain Price, and Duke Steroids Nukem.
Vito would so eliminate Kratos. Never bring knives to a gunfight, especially against a 50 round Thompson 1928 SMG.
There's one thing Link should learn from Vito Scaletta; never bring a knife to a gunfight because it's useless.
Kratos has no hope in hell of overcoming a mobster armed with a 50 round Thompson 1928, a 23 round M1911 and an 8 round M1 Garand
The red leather jackets, white hair, dual pistols named Ebony And Ivory and also being a half - demon demon hunter. You could always count on Dante being on the scene, making everthing even faintly demonic just that little bit more dead. Or cool.
Dante should be in the top 5 most badass characters in video game history. Fighting 5 undead skeletons while having 3 blades stuck in his body and eating a slice of pizza is just one of the many badass things this guy has done over his career.
Most of them in the list are sweet. But 4 top badasses in my opinion? Dante and Kratos at a fight for first and second, and Sephiroth and Solid Snake contending for 3 and 4.
Are you kidding? More badass than at least 8 of the 10. Solid snake and Kratos maybe. But damn.
Link would be quickly slaughtered by this rough as nails S.A. S soldier. Carrying a sword is badass if we were in 2012 because, but we're not in 2012 because are we? We're in 2012 AD so a sword won't cut it against Captain Price's modern arsenal including one of the finest Assault Rifles around; the M4A1. - jezza0
Price is just badass, I mean he smokes and doesn't care, he shoots bunch of people and doesn't care, he even commits war crimes and doesn't care, that is the very definition of awesomeness
Gordan taught all of us to never underestimate a nerd.
Link has had a lot of prowess throughout the many years of his games' lifespan of 30 years. This includes being able to use an ocarina, a countless amount of masks, use a lot of bows, but not limited to swords, bombs, and a lot more that would be really difficult to fit. I forgot to mention, he would also be considered a legendary character with prowess far beyond Mario's in combat, and strategically. That's why I went as Link once for Halloween, he is just outstanding in the industry and never gets old at all! It's amazing how he can stay hot but still be badass for so long.
Link is THE badass of video games. He gets girls and he doesn't even have to say a single word.
Swords are fine but if the enemy is armed with rifles, handguns, SMGs, or grenades, the sword ain't gonna cut it.
Link should be number 1! He is amazing! He kicks so much ass. Plus he has sword. And a sword automaticly makes you awesome. - TheStupidHobo
When the opposition is armed with automatic firearms, a sword is useless - mcvito
Duke Nukem is just a womanizing old fart who just takes steroids, making him unstable and retarded.
Sean Devlin is very heroic. He liberated Occupied France almost single handedly 4 years before the Normandy invasion.
He's blown up tanks, APCs, zepplins, Kublewagons and Nazi motorbikes with sidecars. Sean also assassinated 50 Nazi generals single handedly along with pushing the Nazi ranks out of France.
Sean Devlin is way tougher than Kratos. For a start Kratos doesn't have a sub machine gun or pistol.
Also I doubt Kratos would be able to push the Nazis out of Occupied France single-handedly. All Kratos is is a leotard wearing, gay pride parade member whose taken too many steroids.
This dude is a legend
He literally beat hell by himself. If he fought kratos, duke nukem, or master chief he would win by a mile. Why isn't one of the most badass badasses in the top 10.
Doomguy took down HELL ITSELF. How can he NOT be in the top 10?
Why is the man and a half doing sittin' at #28?!
Poor Doomguy, nobody knows how badass he is.
Augmented sun glasses
This guy has shot hundreds of locusts, stabbed their queen and who could forget his amazing one liners definitely should be number one.
The greatest secret agent out there & d one with d best monologues..
Joe brings the heat all the time. Unlike other characters, he shoots first, and only asks questions after he beats the crap out of people. He gets girls, massacres foes, and became a made man in the Cosa Nostra without a hitch. While Link is doing his stupid sword dance, Joe would just BLAST him with a Tommy.
How is Mario even badass to begin with? Yeah he is extremely popular, but that doesn't make him badass!
He fights a big giant turtle who breathes fire. Now that's badass - ParkerFang
Yes sure he's a real man.R.I. P John.
Yup. Ezio is a pretty badass guy! He's an assassin after all!
He's a badass somewhat because the guy got class integrity and many other qualities still whacks people's asses pretty well though! �"�
Yes he's so badass like everyone is afraid of him when Trevor went psycho!
Best videogame character ever
My personal badass #1 of all time! How can one not include him in the badass list!?
Has hardly any emotion...enough said
Hunts down monsters, Kills beasts of the size of mountains, if prepared can almost kill an army of well armed men and bangs every whore or regular woman that he finds in his quests. He is always serious and knows how to deal with people, the ultimate badass!
This guy is just amazing! You are not able to hate him, he is the best, and we want back him! Die, Infinity Ward, you killed him! :'(
Soap is awesome but he name is stupid
Is the best main character of the Far Cry series!
He's making fun of survivor T. V show. Jason he's a real survivor.
Way more powerful than Jak because he has cool weapons and is so funny! Also, unlike jak, his sidekick is not a totally useless moron (i'm talking 2 you daxter) and the only non-agorian to ever win ALL of the battleplex cups. EVER. also, he could talk in his first game.
SEXIEST MAN IN VIDEO GAME HISTORY - Not_A_Weeaboo
To be honest. Aiden is badass, he's afraid of nothing, cold blooded and a hacker. But he's too much serious but its make him more badass.
Like a second batman. - Not_A_Weeaboo
Maybe he's serious like a white paper but he's badass enough. Even if the game is a bit Dissapointing.
What more can I say? A regular guy who worked his way to the top by being a badass, not scared of gangs, the military, or even aliens.
Did I ever tell you the definition of Insanity?
Apparently Rouge is better than him. Should be at least in the top 15
Um, am I the only one to notice Shadow has two spots on this list?
This guy has been placed way too low on the list. Am I the only one who remembers Shadow wielding many actual weapons AND NOT POWERUPS LIKE ROUGE OR MARIO?!?!,!
This guy is the most badass character in existance, hands down!
Okay, Joel is literally the definition of badass. He's the gruffiest, manliest man from gruff land.
Joel is damn badass.I mean he doesn't care about humanity and just slaughter people just to save a little girl that he only has. - holydonutchan
