Top Ten Video Game Characters That Deserve Their Own Spin Off Games

The Top Ten

1 Bowser - Mario Series Bowser - Mario Series Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

Bowser is such an awesome character in Mario. Maybe he's not really that evil, maybe he has a mental problem, or actually Mario is the evil person. Maybe Bowser knew Peach before Mario, until Mario came along and stole Peach's friendship to Mario. Bowser might just be trying to have his friend back and will do whatever it takes for her.

He did get Bowser's inside story, but 2 reasons why it didn't count. 1: It was part of the Mario & Luigi series, therefore it was a game more for them than Bowser. 2: Mario and Luigi were still playable. I love this game, but unless you can play as only Bowser and it is not part of a series mainly about the bros, it doesn't count.

He gets his own game, kind of in Bowsers inside story. But I absolutely agree

Bowser series would be funny - ArielleBelle

2 Rouge the Bat - Sonic Series Rouge the Bat - Sonic Series

That would be funny and bizarre because of all the rouge and knuckles moments in the game

She a bat. With clothes that has a heart
Shape on it. Some people liked her.
But their can't be a game called "rouge
The bat". That's for sure

By far my favourite sonic character, definitely deserves her own game.

My favorite sonic character is rouge the bat - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever

3 Meta Knight - Kirby Series Meta Knight - Kirby Series Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash ...read more.

Maybe a spin off RPG with him and DeDeDe would be cool. - ClaudeFrollo2345

He's deserves a chance at a better life. Plus, I think Meta Knight might be Kirby's father.

It's about time they reveal more about Meta Knight. What are his true motives? Why the mask? Is he Spanish like in the anime? The world will never know...unless Nintendo makes this game! - Garythesnail

4 Toad - Mario Series Toad - Mario Series Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring ...read more.

An upbeat whimsical spin-off that imitates original Mario games with Toad as the lead would be great for young gamers that are just getting into the hobby, and older gamers that have enjoyed Mario from the beginning.

We got peaches even wario games but no of the first Mario characters like toad I want a game based om him and Bowser needs his own game too -

He actually did get a spinoff game. I liked it. - Garythesnail

That was Captain Toad. We want a game with the Toad in Mario Kart, Mario Party, and the one that helps you in Super Mario games. - Drawbox

He got a good spinoff..

5 Koopa Troopa - Super Mario Koopa Troopa - Super Mario Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle or tortoise-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series.

I love playing as Koopa in Mario Kart. He may be working against Mario, but you can look into him and see a flutter of kindness. I think he has an amazing story to tell.

Just needs a spin off

My favorite Mario character is koopa troopa - koopatroopaandgoomba4ever

Three words: a koopa's revenge
just play that, I reccomend it (it's a flash game)

6 Falco - Starfox Series Falco - Starfox Series Falco Lombardi is an anthropomorphic bird character from the Star Fox series of video games. He was created by Shigeru Miyamoto and designed by Takaya Imamura. Falco acts as the wingman and friend of title character Fox McCloud for the majority of the series.

Yes, what a perfect way to expand a series which has been the same for a little too long!

I salute whoever put this as an idea.

Falco is awesome :D but cocky :D

7 Zelda - Legend of Zelda Zelda - Legend of Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

Wand of Gamelon and Zelda's Adventure don't count.

Zelda is a bit annoying this could be a chance for her

Zelda's spin-off game is so terrible.

8 Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic, Shadow, and Silver, all the hedgehogs in Sonic. Shadow and Sonic have their own games, but Silver is awesome, he looks cool, he IS cool, basically better version of Sonic and Shadow combined.

Why do nearly all the other characters have a game dedicated to them, but not Silver? I think he deserves one.

This guy is fabulous... But he doesn't have a back story or anything. What was life like before Iblis was defeated? What is his future like now? Who are his parents? Any other survivors? So many unanswered questions...

I'm not voting for him,i'm sayen he would be GREAT in super smash bros.,just image,guys,he might even be able to teleport!

9 Waluigi - Mario Series Waluigi - Mario Series Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's wicked ...read more.

For goodness' sakes, quit bringing him into every Mario sports and Mario Party game if you're not going to give him a role in any other games. Take Waluigi Pinball from Mario Kart DS and turn it into a game. Please.

Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi all wear the same clothing, but different coloured. Mario, Luigi, and Wario have their games. Waluigi is part of the crew! Why doesn't he get a role? He even has Luigi's name in his!

Waluigi NEEDS his own game. Mario, Luigi and Wario all have their games, so I see know reason why Mr.Purple deserves his own game. All he gets to star in are the spinoff Mario games that barely ever get any attention. If we get a Waluigi game, we don't want some stupid tennis or golf game, we want a whole "Go around to different levels, battle enemies, kill bosses and steal a crud load of coins all to save some princess or return a royal diamond" game.

It would not only vindicate all of his previous spin off only appearances, but it would be full of more potential beyond 'yet another platformer'.

10 The Arbiter - Halo Series

He survived a lot of suicide missions, so he must be pretty good.

Maybe during Halo 4 the brutes attempted to take over their home planet or something? Then the flood could have come on the Spirit of Fire(or an infection form that hitched a ride on the Arbiter's ship, if the other option is not canon). Player one could be the Arbiter, while player two could be the Spec-Ops Commander(the white one with the missing jaw). The Arbiter has a background that is not seen in the games(possibly in the books) that could be shown during this game. It would probably please most of the fans out there who need a bit more of the original series in an upcoming game.

It would be good to be in the covenant side of things, drop down on a phantom with a squad of grunts and elites, infiltrate a UNSC fortress, see what it's like inside a supercarrier, drop down like ODSTs in drop pods, maybe even drive a scarab tank or ride it with you on its side! Maybe even fight Spartans!

11 Louie - Pikmin 2
12 Roy - Fire Emblem Series

Roy is already the main character of his own game.

13 Porky Minch - Mother Series

I have a love/hate relationship with this guy. He's a jerk, rotten to the core, and made me bang my keyboard in frustration when I fought him in a Mother 3 rom... But he's a perfect bad guy, if that makes any sense. I'd play a spin-off series with him in it any day.

I think that would be awesome! I think Porky's special move would be his persuasion, and he can have enemies join him.

He's like a darker version of cartman.

17 Jody Summer - F-Zero Jody Summer - F-Zero
18 Koishi Komeiji - Touhou Project
19 Clementine - The Walking Dead

In a way, The Walking Dead: Season 2 is her own spin-off, and a sequel.

Twd season 2 is her game. Not really a spin off though. It's close as it gets.

24 Henry - The Last of Us

Henry? If it was anybody from The Last of Us I'd imagine maybe Tess or Uncle Tommy. - higgsboson2142

25 Fawful - Mario & Luigi Fawful - Mario & Luigi Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

I'd like to see something more involving him, even if it was just a puzzle game. - Garythesnail

I simply love Fawful. Sadly, he's incredibly underrated.

29 Goomba - Mario Series Goomba - Mario Series Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

The Jaws Awaken

30 Wolf O'Donnell - Starfox

We could call it "Star Wolf! "

If he had his own game is by it in a heartbeat

31 Daisy - Mario Games Daisy - Mario Games Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland.

I hope she has more spin-offs than "Super Princess Daisy".

I would love to see Princess Daisy (back) in British Columbia with Miles "Tails" Prower and Pac-Man (in his Pac-Man World design and voiced by Chris Brown)! That would make us all jubilant!

I want Daisy and Peach to have a game where they save Mario and Luigi. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

32 Dr. Andonuts - Earthbound

Take him off the list. There was already a fan-made spin-off Creepypasta game centered around him. Look up "Radiation's Halloween Hack"

33 Toadsworth - Mario Series Toadsworth - Mario Series
34 Tom Nook - Animal Crossing

Aww, guys! Not BAD deals, GOOD deals! Tom Nook and his sons would never give bad deals! Heh...bad deals...that sounds kinda funny, actually...heh...

He already has a game

There is one for 32X which is Knuckles Chaotix. - playstationfan66

37 Giovanni - Pokemon

He is liked spin offs

Interesting, this could be really cool. I'm imagining a more adult-oriented Pokémon game about a boy who DOESN'T have it all, and gets into crime. Sounds like something I'd definitely play~ - Maplestrip

He's been ignored for years now! 😫

38 Noble Six - Halo Series
39 H.U.N.K. - Resident Evil
40 Jade Curtiss - Tales of the Abyss
41 Creeper - Minecraft

Minecraft was never made with a story. YOU make the story. So, you don't need the developers to do that. YOU do it.

He's right mostly if you could connect to Minecraft I love to go like blow up houses be a zombie pigman and I asume go in lova with no punishment fly as the gast swim as the squid run as the chicken

42 Edward Kenway - Assassin's Creed

Assassin's creed IV is centered around him though.

He has his own game. AC4

This is how it should go, she found out Joel lied to her, she kills that selfish son of a b****, goes back to the fireflies, and sacrifices herself in order to save the world, BOOM! GAME OF THE YEAR RIGHT THERE!

44 The Style Savvy Girl - Style Savvy

Yeah. The Style Savvy girl needs her own spin-off. - playstationfan66
