ChrisX’s Top 10 Disliked/Hated Video Game Characters

Hello everyone, this is ChrisX and…

… Well. This topic can be a rather touchy topic. Hated characters in video games.

Once upon a time, this was the shit amongst the Countdown Community.  Almost everyone had their own versions of ways to put on their rages on characters they do not like or just piss them off. Lately, no one seems to have made such thing and more or less they look like they’re more embarrassed than anything.

From what I saw, some included characters that were generally unpleasant and ‘were meant to be hated because they do a lot of inhuman atrocities’ as characters they hate… which is probably what the producers of the game wanted on these characters. But sometimes, a character just annoy or piss the hell out of you on a personal level for what they represent or how they were written in story. Maybe they just somehow hit you on the wrongest spots ever, or the way they were written just absolutely do not sit well with you. Are they too pointless in the story? It doesn’t matter if the character was meant to be hated or not, some characters just fricking rub you in the wrong way and you just can’t help to hate these characters.

So let me try giving a shot on this topic. And unlike many many times, let’s see if I can pull this off without flying into rage.

The usual rule apply, one character per franchise and only from games I’ve played. But before we start, please read these important points:

  • This list will contain SPOILERS! So if you are currently engaging with the games listed in the tags, well you have been warned. Tread with care.
  • This list is subjective and highly about my opinion. If you somehow like some of the characters listed here, don’t let it get to you. I won’t say your opinion sucks or you suck for liking these characters. This is just my opinion, not to be meant to be taken as fact.

Without further ado… I’ll try to limit my rage and let’s dig in into the video game characters I hate and want to punch in the face… I hope.

Top 10 Video Game Hammer Experts

Hello everybody and welcome back to another Countdown Post of mine, continuing with the Weapons on a Stick theme. Now, shall we say that if we switch the blade on that stick into a GIANT mass of weight… What do we get? Hammers, that’s what.

In the beginning, hammers were invented to construct structures. Mostly by pounding nails to woods or nails or anything. At times, people also use it to construct weapons, that’s what blacksmiths do. It just happens that the bigger the hammer becomes, the more destructive it becomes, sometimes even becoming a reverse of its original purpose, a bludgeon weapon to either demolish structures, or just bash someone’s skull, either breaking them, or knocking them away for a very long distance. It’s also a popular weapon for clerics who abhor steel sharp weapons… and it’s also a popular weapon for anime girls who tends to get annoyed with their male friends.

But we’re not gonna talk about anime.

The hammers tend to be a powerful weapon, slow at swing, but packs a massive weight in each blows. And so, within this list, 10 Experts of Hammers in video game history shall be listed and we will see who stands in the top to put the mightiest hammer down there is. As usual, the two main rules apply: Only one character per franchise, and only from the games I played. And only from things originating from video games. I swear to God, if anime-origin characters can be put in this list, I would’ve happily put in the GaoGaiGar in, due to the massive Goldion Hammer or Goldion Crusher, and it was showcased in Super Robot Wars! But alas, rules are rules.

So let’s not wait any longer. It’s hammer ti– Wait, no, I don’t say that. I’ll reveal why later. Onward to the countdown then!

Top 10 Video Game Combat Staff Experts

Hello everybody and welcome back to your daily dose of video game countdowns. Now that Halloween is over, I’d say we can get into more normal weaponries, or this time, because I can’t get enough of themes… let’s try to come up with another silly theme for it. Let’s see… I know! How about Countdowns about Weapons… ON A STICK!

(I’m gonna have to cheat later by the way, I don’t think there’s enough poleaxe users)

We will start with the root of it. The stick itself. Sometimes, a weapon can look and appear simple, but it gets results and sometimes it’s kind of all you need. Enter the Combat Staff. Or Bo Staff.

staff-intro

Long in reach, and of the blunt type, the Combat Staff is a pretty popular weapons for those who are pacifistic in nature, but requires a weapon. Monks or Kung-Fu fighting characters tend to use that. But regardless, it remains a popular staple amongst video games, what they lack in steel and cutting capability, they make it up for their long range. The combat staff also exemplifies versatility, it has various uses that will depend on its user’s mind and cunning on how much of it can unleash its potential.

So! That being said, it’s time I count down 10 video game characters that has been known for the usage of this simple yet deadly weapon. Aside of the usual rule of ‘only from games I have played’, I’ll have to mention one thing. In order to qualify, the characters must be using the staff mainly to smack around their enemies up close physically. Staves have been also a popular choice as a conduit of magic. However, they’d be magic casters, NOT combat staff experts. We’re looking for more… physical things. I would excuse it if the staff is a variant like Sansetsukon or the Three-sectioned staff, but it has to be a long staff that is ideally wielded with two hands like a quarterstaff. Baton-staves will not count.

All right, all things said and done, it’s time to dig in to the best combat staff users in video game! Let the countdown begin!
