Here are twelve video game characters that you might not have realized were based on real-life people.
Sonic the Hedgehog is based on Bill Clinton and Michael Jackson? Now that's something unexpected. Pretty good article. Nathan Drake is based on Johnny Knoxville AKA Jackass. LOL at that.
Johnny Knoxville, Cary Grant, and Harrison Ford all went into Nathan Drake. One of these things is not like the others.
I came here for the boobies ....... and it was good!!!
Starkiller aka The Aprentice fron Force Unleashed is based on Samuel Witwer who also plays Crashdown in Battlestar Galactica. http://m.imdb.com/name/nm10...
Based on and voiced by as well. He's probably more famous for the game (sadly) than he is for BSG.
Samus is based on Kim Basinger, and Pele? You could've given me 1,000,000 guesses and I wouldn't have come remotely close to that.
Keyword is based on. It was based on his foot and her hands!
Liu Kang looks more like Bolo Yeung. Fei Long definately resembles Bruce Lee though. Everyone knows Hitmonlee is based on Bruce Lee just as Hitmonchan is based on Jackie Chan.
i liked some of the ideas since he kind of quoted the creators. but when it got to johnny cage and how he thought it was suppose to be like nicholas cage. -_-
Yeah like how have you seen Bloodsport and the nut shot and not connect it with Van Damme....lol
not to mention the original Cage had the same outfit as Van Dam in Bloodsport too. They just changed the orange belt for a red one. BTW, Squall from FFVIII was based on River Phoenix. An actor from back in the 80's. He died when he was like 20 years old though.
To be precise, Johnny Cage WAS Jean-Claude Van Damme. The devs were making a game with him as the fighter but it fell through and they started making Mortal Kombat which included the already created character.
Hitmonlee, the kicking fiend. Hitmanchan, the punching champ. Lol I always remember this from the show and games. I Googled the second one and can't find it. Am I wrong? Apparently it was only in the show. It was in the first season when they're introduced.
These are all pretty flippin' hilarious. And 80s sex icons wore way sexier outfits than those of today. And hair, too.
A lot of it seems like the author just made it up.
Lindsay Lohan: GTA V girl :/S
lol. but you cant blame lyndsey for trying to make as much cash as possible. she spent her whole fortune
Hitmonchan is based on Jackie Chan
