Worst Video Game Character Names Of All Time
Okay, so the deal went through, your idea’s going to be seen by millions upon millions of gamers – but so far all you have is a brilliant concept, a set of mechanics and a game world you’re sure will sell millions. You need names for all your characters, because maybe – just maybe – somewhere down the line, people will plaster posters these creations all over their walls.
Noob Saibot (Mortal Kombat)
Mortal Kombat has seen some shockingly bad fighters – or ‘Kombatants’, as they’re known – over the years (Mokap, anybody?), but thankfully there’s a method to Noob Saibot’s madness.
The name is actually a combination of Ed Boon and John Tobias (creators of the franchise)’s names, but it just sounds a little bit too strange to anyone unfamiliar with this nugget of gaming trivia. Mortal Kombat X actually forwent including Noob Saibot whatsoever, despite him being quite the beloved inclusion in MK 9.
