10 Famous Gaming 'Heroes' You Didn't Realise Were Villains

WC: This list takes a tongue-in-cheek look at famous gaming heroes that partook in particularly devious activities. From horrific acts of animal genocide, to larceny on a massive scale, these heroes were actually the true villains of their respective games. (Culture)

Weak article, I know that it supposed to be 'Funny' but with that logic, every video game hero is a villain.

Not what I expected. I thought it was examples like Mario who actually was the villain in a game.

I laughed really hard at the Mario part.

Not funny and has been talked about like this plenty of times.

Not worth the ten page hits it will give this website.

Everyone is evil because they have to fight/kill/steal something.

In Konky Dong, Mario actually was the villain...and not for any of these stupid reasons.

I think pacman and kirby were kinda ok (others were pretty far fetched) but Crash...

What did you expect ? He cant even talk (except for that one word...) so who knows what other types of mental problems he has ?

Besides, that might be halfway correct in the first Crash game but as far as I remember all enemies in Crash 2 were cortex's cyborg minions and in third they were all those generic clones in different outfits so it doesnt really make Crash "evil" if he only stompped on some Cortex's minions in the later games.

I liked the article. Just a funny/different look at the "hero" that we control in most games.

Pokemon red and blue were mentioned, but every pokemon trainer in every pokemon game ever. Pretty much pure evil.
