Insanity. What exactly is insanity? A lost grip on reality? Doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results? Cheese? In my opinion, insanity is the act of seeing the world and everything in it with a twisted or illogical angle. These ten characters are insane, but comfortable with it. They aren’t really disturbing or scary, just… twisted. You know my rule by now, so let’s celebrate. Time for CHEEEEEESE!


10-Rabbids (Rabbids series)

One day, Earth was invaded. Not by evil aliens, not by robotic warriors, but by crazy rabbits. These things seem to have a serious case of ADHD, running around and screaming because they can. One day, they decided that the moon was their home, so they collected random junk to build a big pile of stuff to the moon. Oh, and the only thing they can say is BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!


9-Psycho Mantis (Metal Gear Solid)

Psycho Mantis knows everything about you. He knows that you played Super Smash Brothers Melee. He knows that you like Castlevania. He is one step ahead of snake, but his true target is you, the gamer. He will mess with your game in hopes of you being stumped, with defeating Snake as an afterthought. He is quite literally a game changer, making you use the controller in port 2 to resist his influence.


8-GLaDOS (Portal series)

“Would you like to marry it? Too bad, I won’t let you.” GLaDOS turned from a cool, calm, and collected AI into a mentally fragile monster who wants Chell dead more than anything else. She obsesses over everything she could ever do to kill Chell. She completely loses any grip on reality and mocks you, because the only thing she cares about is breaking you both physically and mentally.


7-Kefka Palazo (Final Fantasy VI)

Take a look at him. Take a good, long look at him. He is the god of magic, a clown, and eats people. NEXT!


6-Sander Cohen (Bioshock)

You know that kid in kindergarten who would draw pictures of people getting mutilated for free draw time? This is that kid if he stayed on the same path. He has some amazing sculptures that made out of dead people, he wrote a poem about brutally killing a rabbit, and he gets all of his inspiration from un-humane acts of violence. He treats tragedies like another chance to make a great painting or use the limbs of the people to decorate his house.


5-Sheogorath (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion)

As the god of madness, Sheogorath has the job of ruling the shivering isles. When you arrive to meet him, he talks about whatever he feels like whenever he feels like it. He has inflections that would impress Christopher Walken, and his dialogue varies from cheese to plans for decorating your guts. He can change reality at the snap of his fingers, and loves messing with his subjects.


4-Fawful (Mario and Luigi series)

Fawful is a crazy henchman of cackletta who has a very interesting take on the world. In his eyes, everything is a metaphor for different types of food. To him defeating somebody in combat is giving them mustard of their doom. Yeah, you read that correctly.


3-Tingle (The Legend of Zelda series)

TINGLE. TINGLE. KOOLOO-LIMPA! This thirty year old man thinks that he is a fairy, but really is an evil person who will kill anybody who gets in his way. No, really. In The Wind Waker, he is found in jail for stealing a camera. Upon further investigation, you can find a tunnel he carved out. At the end of the tunnel is a treasure chest surrounded by human skulls. He was the only person to ever go in there, so either there were naturally skulls in the middle of rock that he perfectly carved out, or he is in jail for something much worse than petty theft. Not only is he a killer, but he dresses up in a skin tight outfit and flies around with a balloon on his back so he draw maps. Seems legit.


2-The Pyro (Team Fortress 2)

In Valve’s hit shooter, every class has a backstory. Except one. This loony pyromaniac thinks that it is only doing good deeds. Murdering people is giving babies lollipops and shooting bubbles into their face. Also, it appears to be a genderless creature. In fact, even the Scout says “He’s not in here, is she?” The world may never know what really is behind that mask.


1-The King of all Cosmos (Katamari series)

Oh god. Look at him. He is a god-like being that has random mood swings and dresses like the burger king if he was born in the Victorian times and raised by the Cheshire cat on a strict diet of shrooms and LSD. Not only that, but all he wants to do is collect everything. Really, that’s it. He just wants his son to roll around a sticky ball and collect random junk so that he can turn them into… stars? Uh, okay then.
