    Default LEAST badass game protagonist

    This is much more difficult, but I'd say... Abe?

    Don't get me wrong, the oddworld games are swell, but he's definitely the wimpiest game hero I can think of. Somebody tell me a who's a bigger wuss...

    Abe? Have you seen him enter the body of a guard and then ripping him to shreds? The laugh that follows shows me he has a very sick sense of humor.

    I still agree he is a bit on the weak side, but I think it's only because he has no weapons.

    My vote goes to Kirby. I know he can suck up people and all that, but can you seriosuly look at him and experience anything close to fear?

    Heh... this is half-jocose, but I'll go with Ebisumaru from the Ganbare Goemon series. He doesn't look so much the adventurer type as he does the "stay at home, eat sushi, and inexplicably fall asleep while watching the NHK" type. I do love to play as him, though. His ambiguous frutiness is also a nice bonus.

    I'm pry gunna get some shit for this but what ever.

    The gimpest charictor for me would be Cloud from FF7.

    First of all (I think I've mentioned this before) Cloud looks very similar to Aya Brea from Parasite Eve, or vice versa. He has the same facial structure. Blond hair. And is extreemly pail.

    Second he never talks.

    He over compensates with his giant sword. What he compensates for I'd say his short stature.

    Finally the only reason he's powerfull is becouse he was dunked into that life force crap. (The proper term eludes me )

    The best part of FFVII is when cloud is babbling in a wheelchair, and Cid takes over. Damn disney for cleaning Cid up.

    One of my friends HATES FF7. I mean, he'll go off for HOURS about how much he hated it. This is how he describes it.
    - Game start
    - 40 minute cut scene about how Cloud is having a bad day
    - Battle
    - 40 minute cut scene with Cloud whining about how bad his hair looks
    - Battle
    - 40 minute cut scene with Cloud complaing that he's tired.
    - etc.

    Tidus, from Final Fantasy X...

    Is possibly the biggest wuss in an FF(or any game).

    Awesome Possum. The epitome of lameness. Lameness incarnate. It doesn't get much lamer than him.

    The kid from Grabbed by the Ghoulies is definitely NOT a wimpy protagonist! He sure looks like a wuss but kicks some serious ass when he has to.

    Dexter from Space Ace? Very good choice.

    Barney and Awesome Possom I hadn't even thought of, but yes.

    Let's not forget Waldo. I think Barney or Awesome Possom would whup his bitch ass if it came down to it!

    You're sick! Kirby is a badass, man. He's gangster.


    Finally the only reason he's powerfull is becouse he was dunked into that life force crap. (The proper term eludes me )
    Lifestream, chief. I never really got the impression that was the source of his power, but I get what you're saying about the character. That "well, I've been beating everyone's ass for 3 disks now, but I'm weak." speech drove me up the wall.

    Tidus, from Final Fantasy X...
    In fairness to Tidus, the stuff he has to do in Final Fantasy X wouldn't really lend itself to a Squall or Wolverine-like character. I mean, essentially, he has to adapt to a new world, play blitzball, and talk his girlfriend down from commiting suicide. While he does engage in some cheesy shit, Square couldn't have really swapped him with Auron and had the story of the game make sense.

    Would Barney from his Genesis game count?
    No.

    I'd elect... Leo, from Zone of the Enders.
    I am the reinforcements.
