Top 5 Merchant Characters In Video Games

Rhys from Awesome Games writes: 'Ah, the trusty merchant. Always there to cater to your ever-increasingly ridiculous needs. From impossibly huge swords to beds with a fully-clothed dress code, merchants and salespeople are always on hand to ensure your quest to save the world is a convenient one…for a good sum of money, of course. While most merchants are nothing more than generic NPCs, created solely for the reason of selling you goods and equipment, there are a few out there that made their games all the more memorable thanks to their brilliant existence. This list pays tribute to them.' (3DS, Animal Crossing 3DS, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Donkey Kong 64, GameCube, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Spyro the Dragon, Star Fox Adventures, Wii, Xbox 360)

There's a difference between a merchant character and an NPC Shopkeeper character.

In terms of actual merchant characters, I think the best are:

-Torneko Taloon (Dragon Quest IV)
-Happy Mask Salesman (Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask)
-The Father (Nier)
-Recette and Tear (Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale)
-Creeper (The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind)

And I feel like I'm forgetting some good ones from Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, and possibly one of the KOTORs.

when i saw the name of the article my first thought was "If the merchant from RE4 isn't #1 somebody is going to get hurt."

they passed the test.
