A lot of talk has gone into the heroes of numerous games. However, no one gives credit to the bad characters of a game. This is the baddest characters appreciation thread. Post some of the bad characters/bosses of a game that impressed you or scared you. Here's a quick Top 10 (in no particular order):|
1)AM (I have no mouth and i must scream) A super computer, who turned bad and killed all humanity except for five people who he constantly tortured to kill the time. A bored bad character.
2)LeChuck (Monkey Island) Fat ghost pirate. Hated to death Guybrush Threepwood (hey, with such name) but was real hot for Elaine Marley. A funny bad guy.
3)Kane (Command & Conquer) The most ordinary human from the rest, he is incredibly ambitious and will do anything for power. His favorite motto, "He who controls the past, commands the future. He who commands the future, conquers the past". The human bad guy.
4)Guardian (Ultima) Who was he? No one knew. Some said he was created from the bad side of Avatar. Very impressive from his (old) era. The extra-dimensional sort of bad guy.
5)Diablo (Diablo) When the guy gets kicked out of Hell itself, what else can you say?
6)Kerrigan (Starcraft) Started as a good character but quickly turned to be an evil woman. The impersonation of hatred. Great voice and nice wings too.
7)FoxHound members (Metal Gear Solid) Actually this is not one character but a bunch of them headed by Liquid Snake. Snake himself was "not enough" lets say but together with Revolver Ocelot, Vulcan Raven, Sniper Wolf and Psycho Mantis, they were a nice team of bad characters.
8)Constantine (Thief) Yup. Trickster was a bad motherfucker. He and Garrett never saw eye to eye with each other. A subtle character who evolves later in the game and shows his true stuff. Very good voice, aided by the dark cut-scenes of the game.
9)Kain (Soulreaver). The representative of the vampires, Kain is thirsty for two things: Blood and power. He's the thirsty one.
10)Shodan (System Shock). AM's cousin. A computer that is everywhere, knows everything, never shows himself, always predicts your next move, and yeah he's having you on all the time. All in all, a scary enemy. Only problem, he (System Shock 1) turns out to be a she (System Shock 2).
