5 Outstanding Video Game Characters With Outstanding Physique

Published

 on

Larger-than-life characters loaded with an unheard of amount of physique, helps us imitate them. It is the competitive challenge to be stronger and faster than the characters we admire, even if they are fictional, which can be overwhelming.

To be half of the man that Superman is, would still put you on the front cover of Men’s Health Magazine. The overpowered Kratos from God of War and Goku from the Dragon Ball series, on the same team, should not stand a millisecond of a chance against the Man of Steel.

 

If we are talking about energetic video game characters, The Flash (1993) for the Sega Master System, is an exception. The Flash is swift, running at 2,532 miles per hour, but in the 1993 video game, you simply are not moving in slow motion like The Matrix. The background music makes for a perfect, attention-grabbing ringtone though. Listed in Sonic Adventures DX Sonic runs at 3,840 miles per hour, which proves that the blue hedgehog is many steps ahead. Here are 5 video game characters with outstanding physique. 

5. Kane (Command & Conquer Remastered Collection):

Command & Conquer and Red Alert are both remastered in 4K. Kane, the unkillable and seemingly ageless mastermind behind the Brotherhood of Nod society (a quasi-religious terrorist organization), exploited the disenfranchised peoples of many third world nations. The cult leader, Kane, appeared in all of the main Command & Conquer series.

Followers of him believe he is related to the Biblical Cain, seeing him as a Holy figure, making him a great threat. Kane is a threat to society and we also should not pretend like he lacks a great physique.

4. Charlie’s Angels: 

All three of the Charlie’s angels (Natalie Cook, Dylan Sanders, and Alex Munday) are sex symbols, in a not so favorable game. To say it in a polite way, the graphics are inconsiderably poor. As for the combat, it is a snoozefest. The plot is cliche, there are only four boss fights, and there is too many issues to point your finger at.

The three women in the beat ‘em up game, Charlie’s Angels (2003) use their martial arts to stop a madman from stealing national monuments. This game released for PS2 (PlayStation 2) and Nintendo GameCube, is based on the 2000 film of the same name and the film is knowingly based on the 1970s television series. 

Charlie’s Angels was labeled one of the worst video games ever made. I would not label it one of the worst video games ever made, but you will not catch me playing it.

Personally, I would rather see a video game about the comedy/romance movie, House Party (1990). I am not talking about Eek! Games’ House Party that was released on Steam in 2017.

3. Create A Superstar Mode (WWE 2K Series): 

In the WWE 2K series, wrestling fanatics dedicate their time dressing their customizable character, adding interesting moves, entrances, taunts, etc. The customization can get so serious that you may make your character too powerful, unless you switch the settings to Legend mode. Do you ever grow exhausted of beating the entire roster? 

John Cena would tell you to “never give up,” but here is something most people forgot about the Dr. of Thuganomics. In December 2003, on an episode of SmackDown, during a #1 contender’s match for the WWE title, John Cena tapped out to Chris Benoit. 

2. Magneto (X-Men Series): 

In any X-Men game, Max Eisenhardt (known as Magneto) is one of this villains many gamers just want to immediately pulverize. Magneto is an overpowered mutant.

1. Imhotep (The Mummy):

The Mummy, based on the first film in the Mummy series, deserves to be remastered. Feel somewhat like Indiana Jones or Sherlock Holmes, as you (Rick O’Connell) encounter Evelyn Carnahan (an Egyptologist). All because of Evelyn, the infamous Emhotep returns from the dead and it is up to you to stop him.
