Top 10 Most Stereotypical Types of Video Game Characters

The Top Ten

1 The evil Russians

The Spy Next Door is one of my least favourite Jackie Chan movies because the director decided that the Russians should be evil.

What about the Heavy from Team Fortress 2? I love him!

Russians are just like you and me.

2 The "funny" black sidekick

Sazh from Final Fantasy 13 - yunafreya648

3 The dead family member
4 The villain without a good reason to be bad
5 The protagonist who never talks

*cough* Link *cough* - Pegasister12

Link. - yunafreya648

6 The people who still mock you. Even after you saved their life.
7 The "hot" woman

If you thought that was sexist, then go see the dainty damsel in distress trope! :O - The Ultimate Daredevil

It's sexist.

8 The dude who never stops talking
9 Dark is evil

I really wanted to make the Dark good and Light evil. Reminds me of Yin and Yang.-Vestalis

10 The rookie

The Contenders

11 Dark and gritty protagonist

Remember Shadow the Hedgehog? If I said a question of whether Shadow the Hedgehog is a bad game or not (in my review of Shadow the Hedgehog on The Ultimate Daredevil), it would be "Shadow the Hedgehog used to be one of the greatest Sonic the Hedgehog characters ever. Half a decade later, WHAT THE HECK DID SEGA JUST DO TO SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG?! Let's find out...".

12 The overpowered enemy

Kefka - yunafreya648

13 The brooding, evil version of the hero
14 The effeminate villain
15 Light is good
16 The stuck-up hero
17 The girly damsel in distress

Peach - yunafreya648

Not just her, but especially Princess Elise III. I said more than twice her strong points. - The Ultimate Daredevil

18 The sword wielding protagonist
19 The Army Veteran with big muscles
