Tons Of Namco Fighting Characters - (Various Consoles)
Picking just one out-of-place character from Namco's lineup is impossible. In the Soul Calibur series, we've seen odd appearances by Link, Spawn, Yoda, and Darth Vader. On the Tekken side of the fence, you have two bears, a boxing kangaroo, a farting dinosaur, and a tree man. That's a lot of combatants you probably won't be seeing in a UFC pay-per-view any time soon.
The Sorrow/Vamp/The Pain - Metal Gear Solid (PS2/PS3)
No one is going to deny that Metal Gear Solid is a weird series. You have psychics, dead brothers that inhabit arms, nuclear robots, and that whole unpleasantness around a cartwheeling, naked Raiden. However, these three are ridiculous even by the weird standard set by Mr. Kojima. One is a ghost that messes with you and sometimes holds up goofy signs if you're looking in the right place. Another is a bisexual vampire that runs on water. Finally, we have a dude named The Pain that throws bees at you. He even makes a tommy gun out of bees (yes, that tommy gun made out of bees shoots bees at you).

LOL! The Yeti! I remember that. I actually managed to dodge him once going down the slope. I thought I was safe until... OMGOHNOESHE'SCOMINGAFTERMEAGAIN!!!!!!
It's Duff McKagan, dudes.
As long as the princess doesn't pull out sonic's "speed demon", the love interest doesn't bother me to it's full extent, other than it's promoting beastiality.
"**** you, Stryker."
^Quote of the week. **** Mortal Kombat 3 for that matter.
"However, I know that there is a human female love interest for a cartoon rodent. I'm not ok with this."
^So he got some stank. Leave the guy alone.
Seriously, that love thing was one of two major elements (the other being the God-awful controls) that made me want to snap my Sonic the Hedgehog disc in half. The only thing that stopped me was the mere fact that I enjoyed all of the games leading up to that one.
Anyway, now we need a list of the most awesome cameos in games.
ya **** you stryker! its even funnier that his first name is kurtis with a k!
I have been saying that about charging chuck since i played super mario world (he also digs up rocks to throw at you)
A whole city population is killed off, yet somehow Stryker survives... I question the existence of a God if reality allows this kind of circumstance.
Sounds like Dan is jealous that Sonic is apparently smoothe with the ladies =p
Good call on the Yeti
*** you Sonic, you frolicking frolicker.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit anyone?
hahahahahahaha thats all awsome...the best is the sonic though tht is REALLY disturbing but paperboy is funney to
XD These are all great. I completely agree with Stryker.
And knowing you Dan, I expected a Pit joke
I'm gonna go ahead and say a Yeti is not too out of place on a skiing game. Also, I have never thought ANY of the MGS characters have seemed out of place. EVER. And I really don't recall Vamp being bisexual. And I will destroy anyone from your office on MK3 with Stryker. And is the Mega Man one true? Because if so, that is freaking weird
Sonic, you sly dog...
Uh, everything in the new Risk game is very out of place.
I agree with the Human Love Interest one. That should not b there!
