Top Ten Video Games That Should Be an Anime Series


The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros

Some of my favorite characters of all time would be epic in this! Such as Steven from MasterCraft, Hulk Hogan, and Call of Duty!

I would definitely watch this! What surprise it would be if it actually happened!

YES. Probably even better than a Nicktoon crossover series. - KalloFox34

Specifically ssbb would be awesome as anime - YOSHIA2121

2 The Legend of Zelda

It had a cartoon - ElSherlock

Hell yeah I'm obsessed with the Zelda series it would be awesome

Did you forget what happened last time Link got an animated series?

If this was an anime series I would cry. - Dawscr

3 Xenoblade Chronicles

It could work as a mecha anime! You know, like Aldnoah.Zero or whatever! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If Xenoblade was an anime, Pyra/Mithra would be the center(s) of the fanservice.
( don't get me started if it was a uncensored anime)

4 Earthbound

It could be fun

Yes. Hell yes. I need this. - EspioTheChameleon

5 Fire Emblem

Fates would be a very emotional and epic anime

Although it failed in making an anime adaptation once, maybe it can try again and get another anime series? Maybe design it with a feel to either Berserk or Sword Art Online.

It did have an anime series before. But it was only two episodes long and it got cancelled. I would love to see a new Fire Emblem anime series in the future. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Metroid

Samus Aran herself would be the center of fanservice. (Getting her naked all the time)

I have a feeling if it did get an anime adaptation, ( being T rating) samus would be the center of fanservice.

7 Undertale

no - TeamRocket747

Never undertale sucks

*shudder* - Sentimental

I'd be down for a undertale anime - e9090

8 F-Zero

There was an f zero anime - Gamer4life

Bring back the show

9 Super Mario Bros

There was an anime movie, and a 3-episode anime series, but I still want to see a proper mario anime series - myusernameisthis

Not again

10 Dynasty Warriors

The Contenders

11 Sonic the Hedgehog

We have Sonic X - ElSherlock

I just want a new Sonic T.V. show to watch that isn't Boom (because boom is awful) - Smash64

Sonic World Revolution

Well yeah, Sonic X wasn't good at all. But it's still an anime, and the game got its adaptation.

Nevertheless, I do feel that a much better anime should be made in honor of the Sonic the hedgehog franchise. Sonic X was pathetic. - Kiteretsunu

12 Bayonetta

But it is lol

13 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

And I'm not the only one that wished this.

Its been confirmed for an anime - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

14 Chrono Trigger

It's a very beautiful game with a lot of good characters and it has an amazing plot.

15 Bravely Default
16 Mortal Kombat

The animated series was terrible - ElSherlock

Enough with the Mortal Kombat series. New Line Cinema did go downhill though with their Mortal Kombat and American Girl feature films. - playstationfan66

17 Trauma Center
18 Kid Icarus

The cutscenes for Lid Icarus Uprising were anime, weren't they?

19 Overwatch

They already showed that they can put genius animation, cinematics, and story to this game. Since competitive play has died down, this could be exactly what the franchise needs! What got it fame in the first place!

There is so much lore, so this would be a GREAT prequel detailing what happened before the game.

20 God Eater

This already has an anime series! It's on Crunchyroll if you don't believe me.

21 Five Nights at Freddy's

No - ElSherlock

As a fan, no. - TeamRocket747

I love fnaf but I don't think it would work well as an anime

I want chica to look like a cute girl with let's eat bib. She should wear yellow also. Look up foxy human in dragoart

22 Azure Striker Gunvolt

No, that one OVA on the Nintendo eShop doesn't count. - PerfectImpulseX

23 Persona 5

Make it an actual anime. not that garbage like Day Breakers but rather an anime that perfectly follows the story of the main game not a spin-off. - YourWaifuSucks

24 Kingdom Hearts

Has a lot of potential of an anime series.

25 Splatoon

Yes! It would make me so happy!

26 Mother
27 Spyro the Dragon

This would make a good anime, though it reminds me more of a cartoon. - RiverClanRocks

28 Cave Story
29 Harvest Moon
30 Star Fox

Fox- Leonardo DiCaprio

Falco- Antonio Cesaro or Scott Hall

Wolf- Will Smith

31 Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Marz (Ps2)

This game would've been better off as an OVA series. - PerfectImpulseX

32 Borderlands
33 Tales of Berseria

This game deserves an anime adaptation! The characters are interesting, the story is gripping, &, as many fans believe, the few filler episodes in Tales of Zestiria the X are nowhere near enough to satisfy our demands! The potential this game has for an anime adaptation is criminally unnoticed! I watched a 50-hour Let's Play of this game JUST for the sake of watching the story unfold! And come on; imagine this in the hands of a studio like Madhouse. - OPZoroark

Those few or so episodes in Tales of Zestiria the X taking place in the Berseria timeline aren't good enough. However, I am predicting Tales of Berseria will get a full anime adaptation soon. - SelfDestruct

34 Mother 3
35 Pac-Man

Yes, please! And hopefully, it's Pac-Man X & has the same animation as Sonic X & the same character designs as Pac-Man World 3 for sure.

36 Godzilla
37 Call of Duty
38 Pokemon Platinum
39 Street Fighter
40 Xenogears

Much like Xenoblade, this game already IS basically an anime series in game form. - xandermartin98

41 Warframe
42 UmJammer Lammy

"MY WAIFU IS IN MY MINNND" - xandermartin98

43 Advance Wars

Hell, the characters remind me of anime characters

44 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
45 The King of Fighters

So much potential with a KOF anime to explain more about the world, especially with the Orochi and NESTS sagas. There WAS an anime miniseries, but not only was it a miniseries, but it was based on a non-canon spin-off! - kfcnyancat

46 Okami
47 Ratchet & Clank
48 Shovel Knight
49 Bully

Perfect plot for an anime
