Best Guest Characters In the Tony Hawk Series

htoutlaws2012
I'm calling this week a look back at the grace of a once golden child of Activision and that is the Tony Hawk franchise. This was one of the first successful series that many people loved for so long, and now eventually replaced it with other franchises to come. In those times there were col guest characters they added in which may seem out of place for a skateboarding video game, but we didn't care we loved it here's the 10 we liked the most.

The Top Ten

1 Eddie the Head - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Eddie the Head - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Eddie the Head is the mascot for the heavy metal band Iron Maiden. He has appeared on every album Iron Maiden has released and also appears in their live preformances.

Yes that's right Eddie the Iron Maiden mascot made it into an actual video game spot as a secret guest character. More less why is that well Number of the Beast is a great song, and they wanted to include that in its 4th game, and to make it even more interesting they fought of putting in their infamous mascot being Eddie - htoutlaws2012

2 Spider-Man - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Spider-Man - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared in the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the ...read more.

Probably the first true defining guest character every gamer loved playing as. Seeing that he came out of the super hero based off the spectacular Spider-Man the more darker takes off the comic, and now making his appearance here is pretty awesome to see shred that skateboard like a pro. - htoutlaws2012

3 Shrek - Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Shrek - Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Shrek is a character debuting in the 2001 animated movie of the same name. The popular franchise has 4 films and the character himself has become recognizable to people of all ages. He has since spawned into what is most likely the most widely recognized internet meme to ever come into the world.

You know Shrek is love, Shrek is life right? This was at the height where Shrek 2 was either just out or was coming out, and the ogre we all know and love secretly made an appearance in the second Underground game and is easily the best one of the guest characters of that game. - htoutlaws2012

4 Darth Maul - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Darth Maul - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The ...read more.

While it was a very random choice at the time it was pretty cool playing as the best thing of that entire movie that being Darth Maul this silent sith lord who almost nearly defeats Obi Wan. Strangely had a cameo in a Solo Story that I just can't picture, but in a skateboarding game that's sweet. - htoutlaws2012

5 Gene Simmons - Tony Hawk's Underground Gene Simmons - Tony Hawk's Underground Chaim Witz, known professionally by his stage name Gene Simmons, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, actor and television personality.

Yeah because how rad were Kiss's popularity at the time was still rocket sky high that Neversoft like previous games have shown their side of cool taste in guest characters and some say Underground is the best in the series well Gene Simmons and the rest of KISS would probably agree with you seeing they were in the game shredding and picking up boards at the same time. - htoutlaws2012

6 Doom Guy - Tony Hawk's  Pro Skater 3 (PC) Doom Guy - Tony Hawk's  Pro Skater 3 (PC)

If you owned the PC version of the 3rd game unlike other version you also get DOOM Guy who oddly is modeled based on his Quake look instead of the series he came from, but needless to say DOOM Guy needs time off to shred on skateboards to right? - htoutlaws2012

7 Wolverine - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Wolverine - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.

It wasn't just Darth Maul that was cool to play as. Wolverine based on the 90's animated series that's pretty vintage to go with and this was pre-Huge Jackman getting bigger to this point. - htoutlaws2012

8 Iron Man - Tony Hawk's Underground Iron Man - Tony Hawk's Underground Iron Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as its associated media. The character was created by writer and editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. He made his first appearance ...read more.

''I AM... I AM IRON MAN! '' Have you seen the pattern yet Neversoft really loved the marvel comic heroes, and Iron Man is no exception I always wondered how Hulk would of been busting skateboards myself. - htoutlaws2012

9 Judy Nails - Tony Hawk's Proving Ground Judy Nails - Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

This was at a time where the Tony Hawk games were declining and Guitar Hero was on the rising swing in the mid 2000's. Proving Ground may not have been as great as they hoped, but SKATE stepped up the competition, but back to the fact that yes you could play as Judy Nails who fits in as a skater based on the look, and idea fits in well, but how many fans actually played this one to have noticed? - htoutlaws2012

10 Jango Fett - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Jango Fett - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4

I'll admit Jango Fett was a very cool bounty Hunter to include in what I think is the weakest of the Star War films. Not his fault by any means, but this maybe an even weirder fit in a skateboarding game than Darth Maul. As you select his wearing the jet pack anyways which makes you think oh will he fly off to grind sick tricks no. - htoutlaws2012
