Most Mysterious Video Game CharactersNot to be confused with evil. Character can be purly evil or helped the protagonists (or be the protagonist).
*note I will be using the saga they're in not the exact game.
The Top Ten
Yes, we have some info about Kabal but it only gives us more questions than answers! He's very mysterious guy and I love it - Magnolia
Kabal has a very interesting storyline but still we don't know much about him. He is intriguing character - Irina2932
You see him in in every Half-Life game made. He talks to the protagnist. But what is he really saying and why is he so interested in the you. What's his motive, what's his final goal and why does he watch you from the shadows. The G-man is in my opinion the most mysterious video game character that's not randomly thrown into a mix of 20 other characters. Especially when considering this is a single player game. Extra credit to the devs. for making him relevant and an essential character to the game.
Kabal? Kabal before Gman?
What does G-Man wants from Freeman? What is his real identity? Is he wants to help you, or he wants anything else? Is he the cause of debacle at Black Mesa? All of this questions still classifies as "unknown", as his background never be revealed, made fans almost impossible to find out who is actually G-Man
You don't have to be a Half life fanboy to get creeped out by this guy.4 Comments
A middle-aged guy with biotic prosthetic eyes, a Texan accent, and a lot of credits is 3rd place from the tip of the iceberg.
A lot of people haven't played this game so compare him to raizo from ninja assassin. mysterious but deadly
Had to let 1 of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse be on the list.
She is one force not to reckon with.
OK, we don't even know his name for sure. The only things we know is what he looks like (not well) and entry number 17
We know so little about him he's one of the most mysterious characters by far
He doesn't even exist until you mess with your save file
He's really mysterious and strange.2 Comments
Can't really describe this guy, but he's a beast compared to Marcus, Gordon Freeman, and the master chief.
I haven't played redemption but a character literally called strange man is worthy of this list for sure.
Yep, a good spot on the list... good spot.
Don't really know if it's male or female. Don't know if it's human, robot or cyborg. Don't know it's background or motives. Don't know if it's good or bad. Don't know it's abilities and I don't know how strong it is. Don't know why it mumbles everything it says. I know NOTHING about this person. Which is why he should at least in the top 5.
If he's not gonna say anything I'm not gonna comment.
It is true that he is mysterious, but this is enough and really well done
He's on one of the best games ever he beats rachet and clank in duel
Just who is Meta Knight?
He will keep you awake at night.
Why did he even get the majoras mask in the first place?
No one knows what up with his eye
Why does this gas mask monster doesn't speak people trying to find the person's gender or if it even is a person 2 things about it set things on fire and don't speck its the heart and reson to keep team fortress famouse for the iconic figue
Now this, is one mysterious character. His name 'Ratman' just makes you think about his personality. He is never seen in-game, he is only in 'Lab Rat', the Portal comic. He is the reason Portal and Portal 2 exist. It was his quest to stop GLaDOS' corruption and give Chell her long-deserved freedom. He should definitely be 2, as he is similar to Half-Life's G-man.
Because the game doesn't have a story nor does it even have a dialogue, we don't really know anything about her other than she never leaves her house and keep having these disturbing dreams. There are a lot of theories of what her dreams could possibly mean and why did she commit suicide, but none of them are truly confirmed.
He looks like a girl LOL
With all the talk about Sans and Gaster, it's easy to forget just how little we know about Chara. Beyond being a human child that fell into the Underground, got adopted by the Dreemur family, died of illness, had their soul taken by Asriel, and became a ghost that seemingly possesses Frisk to make them kill all the monster in the Underground, there is literally no information on just who Chara is. Why do they want all the monsters to die? Why is Frisk choosing not to finish the job of erasing the world worth killing Frisk over, and why does Frisk choosing to erase the world simply send them back to the beginning with Chara now seemingly having fully corrupted them just so they can kill everyone again? If a ghost is created as the result of someone having unfinished business and a strong enough desire to finish it, then why is Chara a ghost and what do they want to finish before accepting eternal rest? Are they really evil, or is their desire for bloodshed the result of being the ...more
