The 25 most gloriously stupid character names in video games

Often a load of old nonsense, that's what. In much the same way that "Star Wars" is a bit of a cheesy title once you take it out of its culturally ingrained context, so too are the names of many gaming luminaries rather quite a bit silly once you look at them objectively. Some are just aesthetically goofy, some have weird dual meanings, and some of them are just flat-out nuts. But all of the following 25 gaming heroes have had to rise above their initially ludicrous monickers in order to attain the rich successes they now enjoy. (Culture, Fracture, Gears of War, Halo 4, mace griffin bounty hunter, PC, PS3, Retro, Star Ocean, Wii, Xbox 360)

I know their list is satirical but lol at them not knowing the difference between service rank and name.

They do know the difference. Check the Master Chief page, lol.

Master Handker Chief would have been more interesting and at least original. Even Wanker Chief.

Died at their reason for Cloud being on the list.

I don't think the name is really meant to be original. It's just a military rank after all. Master Chief Petty Officer, or "Master Chief," is the highest enlisted rating in the US Navy. That's why he is called that. May not be original, but I think it's better than calling him Seaman or Sergeant Major (equivalent Army rank).

"So we, Mr. and Mrs. McCloud, being foxes, as we are, have birthed a baby fox. What shall we call him?"

"Fox?"

"Done"

LOL
