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 more.

I do think bowser should have is own game. He is my favorite character on this list. Unless Luigi is on here. Or Yoshi. Which wouldn’t make sense because Yoshi has had his own games. I also like the idea of any Mario character on this list.

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

2 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 more.

We need a meta knight that has hero and dark story. And this game should include guns and dark theme

The side modes aren’t enough! I want a full game of this guy!

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.

3 Rouge the Bat - Sonic Series Rouge the Bat - Sonic Series

It could be great - OrangeRin

Seriously?!?! - TriggerTrashKid

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

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 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

Toad is just kind of Mario's underdog, but I believe he has a story. Since in the Mario games, you can be Toad, and Luigi, Luigi has a story, we know that, but if Toad joins Mario to rescue Peach, he's a brave mushroom.
In fact, I'm gonna plan out his game and send it to a developer.

5 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

6 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)

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 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 partner. more.

Waluigi is god and he has had NO GAMES AT ALL. WHY.

Waluigi taco stand game!

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!

9 Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog Silver the Hedgehog - Sonic the Hedgehog

Silver, Silver, all the way. - TriggerTrashKid

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...

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!

His spin-off would be awesome! He was great in the games and books! It could be very interesting to learn about him. #halo2anniversaryterminals

The Contenders

11 Louie - Pikmin 2
12 Roy - Fire Emblem Series

Roy is already the main character of his own game.

13 Porky Minch - Mother Series

The series will be about ruin other peoples childhood though timetravel.

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.

14 Joker - Batman: Arkham Origins Joker - Batman: Arkham Origins The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

You know you love a game when you truly hate the villan.

15 Pigs - Angry Birds

Bad piggies alreadt exists though

The did bad piggies the app - MvC3

16 Metal Sonic - Sonic CD Metal Sonic - Sonic CD Metal Sonic is one of Eggman’s fastest and most powerful creations. Programed to be better than Sonic in any aspect possible, he can shoot electro balls, shoot electricity downward, do a boost, and make himself invincible. He fight’s Sonic each time he gets stronger, and when he gains enough power, more.
17 Koishi Komeiji - Touhou Project
18 Clementine - The Walking Dead

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

She deserves her own story

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

19 The Great Mighty Poo - Conker's Bad Fur Day The Great Mighty Poo - Conker's Bad Fur Day The Great Mighty Poo is a fictional character appearing in the 2001 video game Conker's Bad Fur Day. He is a giant, opera-singing pile of feces that appears as a boss in the sloprano chapter.

It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games.

No she does not.

22 Zonda the Lustful Mirage - Azure Striker Gunvolt Zonda the Lustful Mirage - Azure Striker Gunvolt

24 Copen - Azure Striker Gunvolt
25 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

26 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

27 Wolf O'Donnell - Starfox Wolf O'Donnell - Starfox

We could call it "Star Wolf! "

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

28 Noble Six - Halo Series
29 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"

30 Toadsworth - Mario Series Toadsworth - Mario Series
31 Tom Nook - Animal Crossing

I always wanted a game where you play as a fuzzy loan-shark.

Yeah the object of the game will be to give bad deals.

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...

32 Magneton Magneton Magneton, known in Japan as Rarecoil, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He already has a game

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

35 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! 😫

36 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.

Not only him we need MOBCRAFT dammit

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

The fact this is above waluigi is cringey.

I play Minecraft, but you putting so many *ENEMIES* from a BLOCKY GAME is genuinely irritating me. - mattstat716

37 Edward Kenway - Assassin's Creed

Assassin's creed IV is centered around him though.

He has his own game. AC4

38 Ellie - The Last of Us Ellie - The Last of Us Ellie is the deuteragonist of The Last of Us, the playable protagonist of The Last of Us Part II and The Last of Us: Left Behind, and the main character in The Last of Us: American Dreams.

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!

39 Magikarp - Pokemon Magikarp - Pokemon Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

PUT IT UP - phantomblock

40 Blaze the Cat - Sonic the Hedgehog Blaze the Cat - Sonic the Hedgehog
41 Kratos Aurion - Tales of Symphonia

How could an object get a spin-off?

He is a robot with a soul built by Dr. Alphys, and is the sole television star of the underground. Mettaton is a popular character in the fanbase.

I want to die.

I genuinely do.


44 Tree Mutant - Fallout 3

Throw apples, root swords, squirrel and bee nest bombs, eat
Fertilizer for health, it would be great. CD

45 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.

The only gameplay for a spin off I can think of is Minon quest and Bowser jr's journey's gameplay.

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.

46 Zombie - Minecraft

Whoever put this; You need to stop. - mattstat716

47 Laughing Dog - Duck Hunt

Duck Hunt is his game. And he's the worst Nintendo character ever in my opinion.

48 Ridley - Metroid Series Ridley - Metroid Series Ridley is a villain from the Metroid series and a character from the Super Smash Bros. series. He's Samus Aran's archenemy and has been fighting her since day one with the first Metroid game in 1986. When Samus was three years old, Ridley murdered her parents in front of her. He is a member of the Space more.
49 Dark Link - Legend of Zelda

I'm thinking a little arcade game where you press the right buttons at right times. Who ever reviews this, I made one just like this on the same list, but I forgot to put what game it was on. If you could delete the one that just says Dark Link, that would be good. Thanks!

50 The Merchant - Resident Evil 4
