Yoshi (ヨッシー, Yosshī, sometimes romanized Yossy in earlier Japanese materials) /ˈjoʊʃi/, is a fictional dinosaur (referred to as a dragon at times) who appears in video games published by Nintendo. His debut was in Super Mario World (1990) on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System as Mario and Luigi's sidekick (a role he has often reprised), and he later established his own series with several platform and puzzle games, including Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. He has also appeared in many of the spin-off Mario games including the Mario Party, the Mario Kart, and the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as in other various Mario sports titles. Yoshi also appears in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009) as the characters' companion and steed, similar to his original debut role in Super Mario World. Yoshi belongs to the species of the same name which comes in various colors although the most common is green.
Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Nintendo had wanted Mario to have a dinosaur companion ever since Super Mario Bros.; however, it was not possible because of the limitations of the NES. The inspiration for Yoshi can be traced back further, to the green dragon Tamagon in the 1984 video
Chun-Li (春麗（チュン・リー）, Chun Rī, simplified Chinese: 春丽; traditional Chinese: 春麗; pinyin: Chūn Lì) is a video game character produced by Capcom. First introduced in Street Fighter II, she has since appeared as a player character in nearly all subsequent games in the series. Chun-Li is notable for being the first female playable character in a fighting game, earning her a status of the "first lady of fighting games" among the genre's enthusiasts.
Chun-Li was introduced in 1991 in the original Street Fighter II as the franchise's first female character, an undercover Interpol agent seeking to avenge the death of her father at the hands of M. Bison and his criminal organization. Upon Bison's defeat, she fulfills her revenge and decides to return to her life as an ordinary girl; Super Street Fighter II allows players to choose this ending or another in which she remains a police officer. Street Fighter Alpha prequel series built upon her backstory, while Street Fighter III: Third Strike shows her retired and teaching martial arts to young children, only to be forced to return to law enforcement after one of her students is abducted by Urien. Chun-Li returns in Street Fighter IV, where her
Mara Jade Skywalker is a fictional character in Star Wars Expanded Universe books, comic books, and computer games. She is also wife to Luke Skywalker, and mother to Ben Skywalker. In the different video games, she is voiced by Heidi Shannon and Kath Soucie.
Mara Jade was introduced in Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire (1991). Zahn imagined Jade as a strong, complex female character, which he found was lacking in the Star Wars universe. While competent, she also is flawed. When the Thrawn Trilogy ended in 1993 with The Last Command, Zahn thought it was the last book for which he would develop the character. When Zahn was asked to write another novel, he established two goals: "to end the war between the New Republic and the Empire, and to get Luke Skywalker and Mara together." Although Lucasfilm initially resisted the idea of Luke marrying Mara, they eventually acquiesced.
Compared to Star Wars' sole iconic female character, Princess Leia, Zahn said, "Mara has a sharper and more sarcastic manner, and of course, she had to go through the painful realization that her service had been to an evil cause. But they're both women who are strong without sacrificing their femininity, a
Pac-Man is the protagonist fictional character of the franchise of the same name by Namco, who was first introduced in the arcade game Pac-Man in 1980. Ever since, the character has appeared in more than 30 officially licensed game spin-offs, as well as in numerous unauthorized clones and bootlegs, spawned a variety of Pac-Man merchandise with his image, as well as a television series. Pac-Man became a worldwide social phenomenon and Namco's mascot.
Pac-Man's origins are debated. According to the character's creator Tōru Iwatani, the inspiration was pizza without a slice, which gave him a vision of "an animated pizza, racing through a maze and eating things with its absent-slice mouth". However, he admittedly said in a 1986 interview that the design of the character also came from simplifying and rounding out the Japanese character for a mouth, kuchi. The name comes from the Japanese folklore character Paku who was known for his appetite as well as by the Japanese onomatopoeic slang phrase paku-paku taberu.
The arcade art on the original Puck-Man portrayed the character as a yellow circle with a large mouth as well as hands, feet, eyes and a long nose. In-game Pac-Man was
Dante (ダンテ) is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series of video games published by Capcom. The character, and Devil May Cry, are one of Capcom's flagship game franchises, selling over nine million copies worldwide as of 2008, and currently spanning four video games.

The character also appears in several Devil May Cry novels and manga volumes, and is featured in a 2007 anime TV series.
Dante is a mercenary dedicated to exterminating demons and other malevolent supernatural foes, a mission he follows in pursuit of those that killed his mother and corrupted his brother. He is the son of Sparda, a demon of great power that rebelled against the demon emperor and defeated his army. As a result of his demonic heritage, he possesses numerous powers beyond that of any human, which he uses in combination with a variety of weapons to accomplish his goals. The character was designed to fit Devil May Cry game developer Hideki Kamiya's vision of a "cool and stylish" man, and his personality was based on the titular character of the manga series Cobra. The character has been well
Sergei Dragunov (Russian: Сергей Драгунов; Japanese: セルゲイ・ドラグノフ serugei doragunofu) is a fictional character in the Tekken fighting game series. He is one of the two characters that first appeared in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, along with Lili. He employs brutal grabs, vicious non-escapable counters, and CQC techniques, based on Russian Sambo. Although a newcomer on Tekken, he is mostly well known for his quick grabs, counters, and the great deal of variety of attacks being shifted into grabs, as well as being the prominent military figure in the Tekken cast. With the exception of various grunts and kiais during fights, Dragunov does not speak. It is unknown if he is an actual mute or if he prefers not to speak.
A member of SPETSNAZ, Dragunov is considered the very symbol of fear on the battlefield whose overwhelming fighting prowess has earned him the title "The White Angel of Death". Involved in the investigation of an unknown body that fell to Earth in Siberia, Dragunov received special orders presumably regarding Devil Jin, and entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament Five in order to carry them out.
His precise motivations and the true nature of his orders are unknown. In an
Donkey Kong (ドンキーコング, Donkī Kongu) (DK) is a fictional gorilla appearing in the Donkey Kong and Mario video game franchises. A popular character, he has appeared in many video games. Donkey Kong was Mario's first opponent in Nintendo's popular 1981 arcade game, Donkey Kong. Since then he has starred in his own series of games, starting with 1994's Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and remains an important character in the spin-off games of the Mario series, having since been replaced by Bowser as Mario's arch nemesis. DK debuted at the same time as Mario, and he still spars with Mario on occasion, appearing as a playable character in the Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. series, and is the primary antagonist in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong games.
In 1981, Nintendo was pursuing a license to make a game based on the Popeye comic strip. When this fell through, Nintendo decided that it would take the opportunity to create new characters that could then be marketed and used in later games. Miyamoto came up with many characters and plot concepts, but he eventually settled on a gorilla/carpenter/girlfriend love triangle that mirrored the rivalry between Bluto
Ryo Hazuki (芭月 涼, Hazuki Ryō) is a fictional character in the Sega video game series Shenmue created by Yu Suzuki as the main protagonist of the games. In Japan, he is voiced by Masaya Matsukaze, who also did motion capture. In the English version, he is voiced by Corey Marshall.
Ryo Hazuki lives in a small home in Yamanose, a suburb of the larger Dobuita, in Yokosuka. His father, Iwao Hazuki, master of the Hazuki-style of Martial Arts, was killed by a man named Lan Di - a practitioner of a powerful, mysterious martial art. Lan Di was searching for the Dragon Mirror, a powerful mirror that seemingly holds the jewels of the kingdom. Ryo, after witnessing the death of his father, takes it upon himself to exact revenge upon Lan Di. The Chiyou-men hold a base in the harbor near Ryo's hometown. It is there that Ryo first encounters the vicious gang, the Mad Angels, a group working with the Chiyou-men.
As his life progresses, Ryo meets many characters. An important character he meets in the first game is Gui-zhang, another martial artist. Gui-zhang is the son of Master Chen, an old friend of Iwao's. Iwao Hazuki also appears in a number of flashbacks, giving guidance to Ryo along his
Sonic the Hedgehog (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ, Sonikku za Hejjihoggu), trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is a title character and the protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as in numerous spin-off comics, cartoons, and a feature film. The first game was released on June 23, 1991, to provide Sega with a mascot to rival Nintendo's flagship character Mario (see 1991 in video gaming). Since then, Sonic has become one of the world's best-known video game characters, with his series having sold more than 80 million copies. In 2005, Sonic was one of the first game character inductees into the Walk of Game, alongside Mario and Link.
While many individuals at Sega had a hand in Sonic's creation, programmer Yuji Naka and artist Naoto Ōshima are generally credited with the creation of the character, a blue 15-year-old anthropomorphic hedgehog, who has the ability to run at supersonic speeds and the ability to curl into a ball, primarily to attack enemies. This is a major part of the gameplay of the series.
While Sega were seeking a flagship series to compete with Nintendo's Mario series along with a character to replace Alex Kidd as the company's mascot, several character
Zangief (ザンギエフ, Zangiefu, from professional wrestler Victor Zangiev, Виктор Зангиев), often called the Red Cyclone, is a fictional character in the Street Fighter series of video games. Created by Akira Yasuda for Capcom, Zangief first appeared in Street Fighter II, later appearing in other games, media, and promotions related to the Street Fighter franchise. Zangief is considered to be the first fighting game character whose moveset is centered around grappling.
Designed by Akira Yasuda, Zangief was initially conceived for Street Fighter II as a character named "Vodka Gobalsky", planned to be a very strong but extremely slow character to play as. Early designs of the character closely resembled the character's finalized appearance, but with the addition of a black tanktop and anchor tattoo on his upper arms. His name was later changed to "Zangief", though the development team would not learn until twenty years after the game's release that such a name was not possible within the Russian language.
Actually, Zangief character was based on a real person. His name is Viktor Zangief (Viktor is his first name, and Zangief is his family name, thus making false impression that such a name
Adam is a fictional character in the fourth season of the fantasy television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Portrayed by George Hertzberg, he is a monster created from a man and the collected parts of demons, vampires, and technology: the product of a perverse experiment carried out by military scientists. The series' main character, Buffy Summers, encounters and ultimately defeats him in the fourth season. Adam is the creation of Dr. Maggie Walsh (Lindsay Crouse), the head of a military-like organization called The Initiative that studies how to alter the harmful behavior inherent to demons. Adam and the Initiative are the fourth season's primary antagonists, or Big Bad.
The premise of the series is that Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is a Slayer, endowed with superhuman strength to fight vampires and evil creatures in the fictional town of Sunnydale. In the fourth season, Buffy begins attending college, where she discovers that her psychology professor, Walsh, is a scientist for the Initiative. Adam is Dr. Walsh's horrible masterpiece, an allusion to Frankenstein's monster, whose first conscious act is killing his creator. Adam's search for understanding himself and his true
Agent 47 (often referred to as 47 or Mr. 47, born 5 September 1964) is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Hitman series. Created by IO Interactive, the character was developed around David Bateson, who also provided the in-game voice. 47 has appeared in all four installments of the Hitman series and will be returning in Hitman Absolution. He has also appeared in the novel Hitman: Enemy Within, as well as the film adaptation in which he was dramatized by Timothy Olyphant. A genetically-enhanced clone trained to assassinate targets, the agent's name is derived from the last two digits of his assigned barcode which is tattooed on the back of his bald head, reading 640509-040147.
According to Jacob Andersen, lead designer of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Agent 47 went from being "a mean old hairy guy" to having "hi-tech glasses" before getting to his current bald design. More inspiration came from "comic books, Hong Kong movies," and other similar media.
According to Game Director Rasmus Højengaard, the idea of a clone whose future is decided by the people that created him, intrigued the Hitman team. Højengaard felt the idea of creating the "ultimate assassin" by cloning
Akuma (in Japanese, "Devil" or "Demon") known in Japan as Gouki (豪鬼, Gōki, lit. "Great Demon"), is a video game character from the Street Fighter series of fighting games. Akuma made his debut in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a secret character and hidden boss. In the storyline of the Street Fighter video games, he is the younger brother of Gouken, Ryu and Ken's sensei. In some games he also has an enhanced version named Shin Akuma, or Shin Gouki (真・豪鬼, the "true Gouki") in Japanese.
Akuma has dark red hair, glowing red eyes with black sclera, wears prayer beads around his neck, a black or blue dogi and a piece of twine around his waist in lieu of an obi. The kanji 'ten' (天) - meaning "sky/heaven" - can be seen on his back when it appears during certain win animations. Shin Akuma's appearance is very similar to Akuma's; for example, in the Street Fighter Alpha series, Shin Akuma had a purple gi instead of a gray one and marginally lighter tone. Akuma's introduction in Super Street Fighter II Turbo stemmed from the development team's desire to introduce a "mysterious and really powerful" character, with his status as a hidden character within the game resulting from later
Albert Wesker (アルバート・ウェスカー, Arubāto Wesukā) is a character in the Resident Evil series by Capcom. He has been one of the primary antagonists throughout the series, where he usually manipulates story events behind-the-scenes. The film actor of Wesker is played by Jason O'Mara in Resident Evil: Extinction and Shawn Roberts in Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution.
Wesker made his first appearance as a non-playable character in the original Resident Evil game, assisting the player character against Lisa Trevor in the remake. In that game, he is the commanding officer of Alpha team of the Special Tactics And Rescue Service (STARS). It is eventually revealed that Wesker is a double agent working for the Umbrella Corporation; ordered by his superiors to lure the STARS into the Spencer mansion to be used as test subjects against the mutated creatures to gather battle data. Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine and the others come to learn of Wesker's true motive, but after releasing the Tyrant monster, Wesker is seemingly killed. The Sega Saturn port of Resident Evil features a Battle Mode minigame where the player can fight a zombified version of Wesker.
However, this is part
Alex Kidd (アレックスキッド, Arekkusu Kiddo) is a video game character whose popularity peaked during the late 1980s and who was the protagonist of both a series of video games released by Sega and their fictional universe, as well as in numerous spin-off merchandise such as novelizations and comics. For a time he was an unofficial mascot of the Sega Corporation.
Alex Kidd was the protagonist of several video games over the years, spanning various platforms, and appeared in the arcade and on the Sega Master System and the Mega Drive/Genesis home consoles. Alex Kidd's popularity was at a peak with the release of the first game in the series, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, in 1986, which was later built into the Master System console without need of a cartridge and was playable from purchase of the console.
In the mid-to-late 1980s, Alex Kidd overtook the character of "Opa-Opa" from the game Fantasy Zone as the official mascot for the Sega Corporation. However, in order to provide Sega with a mascot to rival Nintendo's flagship character Mario (a task which Alex Kidd was not considered up to), in 1991 Sega introduced Sonic the Hedgehog, who did indeed become more popular and recognizable than
Adrian Fahrenheit Ţepeş (アドリアン・ファーレンハイツ・ツェペシュ, Adorian Fārenhaitsu Tsepeshu), better known as Alucard (アルカード, Arukādo) is a fictional character in Konami's Castlevania series of video games. His first appearance in the series was in the 1990 Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, but he is best known for his role in the critically acclaimed Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, released in 1997. His design in Symphony of the Night was created by Ayami Kojima, marking her first contribution to the Castlevania franchise.
In the series, Alucard is the son of Dracula, the antagonist of the Castlevania series. Due to his human mother, Lisa, Alucard is a dhampir, a half-human, half-vampire. His mother's death and admonition not to hate humanity caused him to take up arms against his father. In Dracula's Curse and Castlevania Legends, he fights against his father alongside the vampire hunters of the Belmont clan, and he is featured as the protagonist of Symphony of the Night. Alucard additionally is present in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and follow-up sequel Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, where he interacts with the protagonist of both games, Soma Cruz, as the Japanese government agent Genya
Cousin Amanda is Cousin Marigold's oldest daughter, followed by her younger sister Ally. She is a full-blooded witch, and she lives in the Other Realm (except when she is at the boarding school Witchright Hall, which is in the Mortal Realm). She is apparently based on character Esmeralda from the comic books, although this has not been confirmed. When she appears, she is usually filling the role of a bratty younger "sister" to Sabrina.
Amanda first appears in A Halloween Story as a spoiled brat with a habit of trapping people in jars. She then later appears in A Doll's Story when Marigold needs someone to babysit. While at the Spellman's house, she shrinks Sabrina down and turns her into a doll and put her in her toybox along with all her other toys/shrunken people.
When Cousin Marigold visits Sabrina to help her with the family secret in Sabrina The Matchmaker, Amanda and Ally come along and as Sabrina tries to set up Marigold with a handsome plumber named Emil, the two spend the entire time trying to spoil the romance. In the end, after Marigold tells Emil she's a witch, Marigold and her daughters lose their magic. Later, in She's Baaack!, we find that Amanda has gained her magic back as she begins to mature into a teenage witch like Sabrina. Sabrina helps her to mature a little further in order to make her realize that she and Harvey can't be together (Amanda had an enormous crush on him and kidnapped him away to Cloud 9).
Despite her temporary growth, Amanda goes through a tough time personally when her mother leaves for yet another honeymoon. Marigold sends to Hilda and Zelda asking if Amanda can move to the mortal realm and live with them. Because of this, they ask Sabrina's help to see if Amanda can get accepted to a boarding school called Witchright Hall. When Amanda doesn't get accepted, instead of being enraged, she's very upset because she said it was the only place she felt like she fit in, and so the owners decide to accept her after all.
We see Amanda a few more times such as in The Competition where Hilda and Zelda try to help her get her witches license and in Bada-Ping! where she finds her "smoking" is actually the cause of Sabrina's untimely death.
Amanda is seen for the last time in Soul Mates where she visits Sabrina on the morning of her wedding. When she wonders why Harvey isn't present, she goes to visit him and convinces him that even though Sabrina is marrying Aaron, he should be at her wedding anyway. She is last seen watching Harvey and Sabrina riding off on his motorcycle (which she fixes after he crashes). For all intents and purposes, Amanda is the reason Harvey arrives outside the church and is there to take Sabrina away.
Amaterasu (天照), nicknamed Ammy by Issun, is the main protagonist of Okami. She is also known by villagers of Kamiki in her past life as Shiranui. Amaterasu is the Sun Goddess to all of Nippon, and the "origin of all that is good and mother to us all."
Amy Rose (エミー・ローズ, Emī Rōzu), known earlier as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in most of the Sonic the Hedgehog series developed by Sega's Sonic Team. She made her debut appearance in Sonic CD (1993). Amy Rose was created by Kazuyuki Hoshino and based on one of Kenji Terada's characters. She was redesigned by Yuji Uekawa for Sonic Adventure. She is a happy-go-lucky pink, female, anthropomorphic hedgehog who is obsessed with the series' title character and protagonist, Sonic, even going so far as to declare herself his girlfriend. She has chased Sonic since her debut in 1993, and has been trying to win his heart in everything from the series' games to animated TV shows and comics. She is also one of the series' most popular characters, coming in fifth place in an official popularity poll.
Like Sonic and other characters in the series, Amy is significantly shorter and lighter than humans her same age. She is 12 years old and 90 cm (2 ft 11in) tall. She was originally described as being 8 years old in Sonic CD, but as of Sonic Adventure and onwards, she has grown older. Also, with the addition of Cream the Rabbit, Amy seems to have found herself a sidekick
Andrew Ryan is a fictional character in the 2007 video game BioShock. The character has received significant praise from critics, and so has his voice actor, Armin Shimerman, whose voice talent was cited as one of the contributing factors to BioShock and won "Best use of sound" from IGN. He has been compared to several different real-life and fictional figures, his world of Rapture compared to the world of Ayn Rand novel Atlas Shrugged, while creator Ken Levine compared him to Ayn Rand herself, as well as Howard Hughes.
BioShock director Ken Levine described Andrew Ryan as a character of ideals, in contrast to another character, Frank Fontaine, who has no ideals. Designing the boss battle between the player and Ryan was a controversial decision for the developers, due to the question of what the players' motive is at this point. Ryan taking his own life to prevent Jack, the protagonist, from accomplishing this, was described as the "ultimate insult" by Levine. The scene took a long time for the developers to finish. Levine stated that they figured out the question of who the character of Andrew Ryan is too early, adding that they underestimated the impact that this would make.
Anna Williams (アンナ・ウィリアムズ, Anna Wiriamuzu) is a fictional character in the Tekken fighting game series, first appearing in Tekken in 1994. She is the younger sister of Nina Williams and the aunt of Steve Fox.
Anna is defined by her rivalry with Nina, a trait that has been around since the original Tekken game, and she originally shared most of her moves with her sister, but has since gained a more unique moveset. In the other Tekken media, Anna usually appears as a minor villain. The character achieved significant popularity and positive critical reception.
Anna was born and raised in Ireland. She and her sister Nina were taught various martial arts by their father, a former assassin Richard Williams since young age. When Richard died under mysterious circumstances the sisters blamed each other, leading to a long-standing rivalry between them.
Anna plays only a very minor role in the story of the first game, appearing as a sub-boss character for Nina. Her story was further expanded in later games. In Tekken 2, as in the first tournament, Nina was once again hired to assassinate the sponsor of the current tournament, Kazuya Mishima. Whether at Kazuya's discretion or Anna's own
Anya is the fiery, feisty redheaded heroine of the 20th Century Fox film Anastasia. The character is loosely based on Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia.
Anya is a beautiful but stubborn, bold and headstrong young woman with a mind of her own. She was a very playful child, which carried over into her adulthood, as can be seen in her relationship with Dimitri early in the film. Anya has also proved to be a quick thinker who is good at improvising many times. However, there are also times where she can also be easily frustrated and insecure, and these insecurities are most apparent later on in the movie as Dimitri and Vladimir start grooming her to become a Grand Duchess.
As someone who did not even know her last name for a large period of her life, home and family are extremely important values to Anya, as she can not remember having either, yet is certain she must have had both, and at the end of the film she even decides that she doesn't want to become a Grand Duchess again because she found the home and family that she had been longing for in both her grandmother and in Dimitri.
Anastasia "Anya" Nikolaevna Romanova is the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II and
Arbiter is a fictional ceremonial, religious, and political rank bestowed upon alien Covenant Elites in the Halo science fiction universe. In the 2004 video game Halo 2, the rank is given to a disgraced commander as a way to atone for his failures. Although the Arbiter is intended to die serving the Covenant leadership, the High Prophets, he survives his missions and the Prophets' subsequent betrayal of his kind. When he learns that the Prophets' plans would doom all sentient life in the galaxy to extinction, the Arbiter allies with the Covenant's enemies—humanity—and stops the ringworld Halo from being activated. The Arbiter is a playable character in Halo 2 and its 2007 sequel Halo 3; a different Arbiter appears in the 2009 real-time strategy game Halo Wars, which takes place 20 years before the events of the main trilogy.
The appearance of the Arbiter in Halo 2 and the change in perspective from the main human protagonist Master Chief to a former enemy was a plot twist Halo developer Bungie kept highly secret. The character's name was changed from "Dervish" after concerns that the name reinforced a perceived United States versus Islam allegory in the game's plot. Award-winning
Augustus "Cole Train" Cole is a fictional character in Epic Games' third-person shooter, Gears of War. He is one of the survivors of Alpha Squad, along with Baird.
Known by players for energetic and aggressive attitude, Cole is one of Gears of Wars main characters. Marcus Fenix encounters him during Act 1 of the game, while searching for the surviving members of Alpha Squad.

Baek Doo San is a fictional Korean character in the Tekken fighting game series. His name comes from the Baekdu Mountain.
He first appeared in Tekken 2 as the sub-boss of Marshall Law. According to the storyline, Baek accidentally killed his father during a sparring session, which left him in doubt over his own skills. As a result of his father's death, Baek went on a rampage, destroying several dojos. One of the worst hit happened to be Marshall Law's. Baek then left a note there telling him that he will be in the second King of Iron Fist tournament. The two met there and had a match, in which Baek lost.
According to the Tekken 3 storyline, Baek was presumed dead after encountering Ogre the fictional Aztec God of Fighting. One of his closest students, Hwoarang, entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 to exact revenge for his master's death and to have a rematch with Jin Kazama, the only fighter who had ever fought him to a draw.
According to the Tekken 5 storyline, Baek's encounter with Ogre had left him in a coma, not dead as initially presumed. He woke up over a year later, after Hwoarang had already competed in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3. Baek later began teaching
Balrog, known in Japan as Mike Bison (マイク・バイソン, Maiku Baison) and M. Bison, is a character from the Street Fighter fighting game series. Balrog is depicted as an African American boxer wearing blue trunks with white trim and a torn white shirt under a blue tank top. He wears red boxing gloves and boxing shoes. His hairstyle consists of short hair cut in an odd pointing style in the front, similar to Mike Tyson's haircuts from the time Street Fighter II was made.
In Japan, the character of Balrog is named M. Bison, with the letter being an initial for "Mike", and is intended as a parody of real-life boxer Mike Tyson. However, when the game was to be ported for worldwide audiences, under the suggestion that the character's name and likeness resembled Tyson to the point of infringement, the developers rotated the names of three of the boss characters for the English localization. As they felt the name Vega was better suited for the androgynous bullfighter, they gave him the character's previous name, Balrog, and changed the name of the game's final boss to M. Bison. In Street Fighter Alpha 3, Balrog tells some of his defeated opponents that he's going to "bite [their] ear off", a

Birdo, known in Japan as Catherine (キャサリン, Kyasarin), is a fictional character in the Mario franchise, who first appeared in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, which was localized for English audiences as Super Mario Bros. 2 as an enemy to Mario. Since her appearance, Birdo has been a recurring character in the spin-off titles of the main series, often depicted as an antagonist. Birdo has also made several cameos, particularly in the Super Smash Bros. series and the Japan-only Wii video game Captain Rainbow.
The original manual for Super Mario Bros. 2 asserts that Birdo is a boy who believes that he is a girl, and would rather be referred to as "Birdetta". Later releases of Super Mario Bros. 2 lacked any mention of her gender in either the game or the manual. Nintendo eventually established Birdo as female, first in Mario Tennis which depicted Birdo and Yoshi as boyfriend and girlfriend. However, several games portray her as male, such as Captain Rainbow, or refer to the gender confusion without assigning one, such as in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It has been suggested that Birdo is a post-op transsexual by transsexual video game developer Jennifer Reitz, while Wired editor Chris Kohler

Boba Fett is a fictional character in Star Wars. A bounty hunter and Mandalorian hired by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon, he is a villain in both Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones establishes Boba Fett's back story as a child clone of Jango Fett, who raises him as a son. Boba is created for Jango by the cloners of the Planet Kamino, who also created the Clone Army that the republic will eventually enlist. The Star Wars Expanded Universe expands on Fett's origins and career as a bounty hunter.

is a fictional ghost that appears in the Super Mario series of video games by Nintendo. Boos made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3.
Physically, Boos resemble classical Halloween spooks. They are round, puffy and balloon-like in appearance, and usually sport a pair of sharp vampirical canine teeth. Boos have beady eyes and a variety of facial expressions comparable to those of classical jack o' lantern. Boos have flaps for arms as well as short tails. There are many Boo variations, as they vary in color and size. The most common Boo type is a generic, milky-white Boo, but other Boos can come in hues of blue, green, pink, orange, red and black. One type of Boo, found in Paper Mario, is the Dark Boo, which is violet with glowing orange eyes and a blue tongue. Even though they are ghosts, there has been some controversy as to whether Boos are true ghosts or a species of ghost-like creatures. Judging from their dialogue in Super Mario 64, it is hinted that they are in fact dead Mushroom Kingdom residents. However, this has been contradicted in more recent games, mostly when one takes it into consideration that the ghosts of Mushroom Kingdom citizens have been seen, and

He has one small tooth in his mouth which covers his large snout; and small circular eyes black in color. His shell is green and lined with a green encasing with small white spikes. Bowser Jr. is modeled after Baby Bowser (Bowser's infant form) from the Yoshi series, and therefore stongly resembles his father. The similarity is even more apparent in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, with Baby Bowser looking almost exactly like Bowser Jr., but with a different, plain white bandana. By
Bulbasaur, known as Fushigidane (フシギダネ) in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, their name is a combination of the words "bulb" and "dinosaur." First appearing in Pokémon Red and Blue as a Starter Pokémon, they later appeared in subsequent sequels, spin-off games, related merchandise, and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.
Known as the Seed Pokémon, Bulbasaur can survive for days without eating because the bulb on its back stores energy.

It is featured in various manga, and is owned by main protagonist Red in the Pokémon Adventures manga. Bulbasaur has been featured in varying pieces of merchandise, including toys and plush dolls.

Bullet Bill is an enemy character from the Mario video game series. He is a huge, slow-moving bullet that is fired from a cannon. Bullet Bill first appeared in Super Mario Bros. The only way he could be destroyed was by jumping onto it or running into it after obtaining the star power up. Using fireballs has no effect on him and there is no way to destroy the cannon that he is fired from. Generically, "Bullet Bills", are used to refer to the plural. Bullet Bill's larger incarnations, called Banzai Bills, are occasionally used by gamers as a comparison to overpowered weapons in shooter games, a reference to how insanely large these shells are, and the surprise of their first appearance to players. Bullet Bills generally have beady eyes and a fierce scowl painted on them, a clear reference to the shark-faced Flying Tigers of World War II.
Super Mario Bros.: Bullet Bill first appears in World 5-1. It is usually discharged from a large cannon, known simply as a Bullet Bill Blaster. On occasion, Bullet Bills will be shot from random locations somewhere offscreen.
Super Mario Bros. 2: Bullet Bills did not appear in the American version of Super Mario Bros. 2 by name, but there are

Tim Allen voiced the character in the Toy Story film trilogy and the Buzz Lightyear movie, while Patrick Warburton provided Buzz's voice for the TV series, and Pat Fraley voiced him for the video games and the attractions in Disney Parks.
Buzz Lightyear's name was inspired by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Aldrin acknowledged the tribute when he pulled a Buzz Lightyear doll out during a speech at NASA, to rapturous cheers; a clip of this can be found on the Toy Story 10th Anniversary DVD. Aldrin did not, however, receive any endorsement fees for the use of his first name.
Regarding the design of Lightyear, his creator, John Lasseter, is on record as saying he wanted to create an action figure in the line of G.I. Joe for Toy Story and decided upon a spaceman

Captain Falcon (キャプテン・ファルコン, Kyaputen Farukon), full name Douglas Jay Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero. He first appeared in F-Zero, and has served as the poster boy/main protagonist of the F-Zero franchise. Nintendo first envisioned Captain Falcon as a flagship character to represent the release of a new console, but he ended up appearing far less than originally planned. In the games, he appears as mysterious racer and bounty hunter who is one of the best racers on the circuit. Falcon also represents the F-Zero franchise in all three games of the Super Smash Bros. series. Falcon is the hero of F-Zero GX, the fifth game in the series.
In the F-Zero: GP Legend anime, writers portray Falcon differently than in the video games; here, "Captain Falcon" is a title passed down and held by the best racer in the world. Andy Summer is the real name of the first Falcon in the GP Legend series.
Nintendo originally meant Captain Falcon to be the flagship character of the then new Super Nintendo Entertainment System. However, this never panned out, and Captain Falcon was rarely seen in Nintendo media. He is described as an accomplished F-Zero pilot and

He was also the former captain of his personal ship, the S.S. Dolphin. He has a family (wife, son, and daughter) on Hocotate, his home planet.
Captain Olimar was going to take a vacation away from Hocotate for a few days. As he was flying his personal ship, the S.S. Dolphin, a meteor collided with his ship, causing the S.S. Dolphin to fall and start to burn as it was crashing down to an unknown planet, a planet with giant plants and poisonous oxygen filling the air. He was knocked out as the ship crashed on the ground and he was forced out of his unusable ship.
Fortunately for Olimar, he was able to wake up from his crash but he became hopeless as his ship was stuck in the ground. While he was exploring an area he called The Impact Site, he met creatures called Pikmin in an unoccupied Onion. The Red Pikmin were able to reproduce more Pikmin so Olimar was able to find some useful helpers on the planet. As the Pikmin could do many talents on the planet, he was able to find the Dolphin's Main

It was trapped inside the Master Emerald for thousands of years before being released by Dr. Eggman in a bid to conquer the world. It was also the original guardian of the Chaos Emeralds, Chao, and the Master Emerald. In Sonic Adventure it absorbed the negative energy of the Chaos Emeralds to attain its final and strongest form.

He is 6 years old (the youngest of all the Sonic characters tied with Cream), stands 70 cm (2' 3") in height and weights 10 kg (23 lbs), making him the lightest character in the series. His trademark is his flying helmet.
Charmy is hyperactive and scatter brained, but is the most friendly and optimistic of all the Chaotix crew. He shows a deep respect for Shadow in Shadow the Hedgehog. Due to his age, he is not as skilled a detective as Vector or Espio, but he is none the less valuable to the team.

Chell is the main character and test subject in Portal. Since Portal starts with no introduction, cutscenes, or explanation, and you wake up in a rehabilition cell with no backstory, you start the game knowing nothing about who you are, where you are, or what you are doing there. This is probably exactly how Chell herself would feel.
Little is known about Chell and her name is not even mentioned by GLaDOS in the game. Instead, anytime she needs to address Chell, instead of by name, GLaDOS will use "" as if the greetings or messages were meant to be filled in with the test subject name and never were.

Chewbacca's creation as a "gentle, hairy, non-English-speaking co-pilot" was inspired by George Lucas seeing his own dog sitting up on the passenger seat of his car. The dog, named Indiana, also inspired the name of the lead character in another one of Lucas' film franchises - Indiana Jones. It is said that Chewbacca's name is derived from собака (sobaka), the Russian word for dog.
Chewbacca, a Wookiee, became Han Solo's first mate and companion after Solo, then an Imperial Captain, refused an order to kill him while Chewbacca was a slave of the Empire. Solo was dismissed from the Imperial Navy for disobedience and became a smuggler. Chewbacca owed a life debt to Han and would serve Han Solo for the rest of his life. Chewbacca was named one of the "greatest sidekicks" in film history by Entertainment Weekly.

The animated and live-action versions share a common theme song, which has been covered many times by different performers. While Honey's exact appearance differs among the various versions, they all portray her as an outwardly ordinary girl named Honey Kisaragi, who can transform into the busty, red or pink-haired heroine Cutie Honey and other specialized forms to fight against assorted villains who threaten her or her world. One of the trademarks of the character is that all of these transformations involve the temporary loss of all her clothing in the brief interim from changing from one form to the other.
Nagai's inspiration for the character of Honey comes from
Francis Morgan Ayodélé "Daley" Thompson CBE (born 30 July 1958), is a former decathlete from the UK. He won the decathlon gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984, and broke the world record for the event four times.
With four world records, two Olympic gold medals, three Commonwealth titles, and wins in the World and European Championships, Thompson is considered by many to be one of the greatest decathletes of all time (along with Bob Mathias and Dan O'Brien). Robert Chalmers described him as "the greatest all-round athlete this country [United Kingdom] has ever produced."
Thompson was born in Notting Hill, London, the second son of a Nigerian father and Scottish mother. His father was a taxi driver who was shot dead in Streatham when Thompson was about twelve. At seven years old Thompson was sent to Farney Close Boarding School, Bolney, Sussex, which he described as "a place for troubled children". Thompson's name is a contraction of Ayodele, a Yoruba word meaning "joy comes home". Thompson's first ambition was to become a professional footballer, but he later switched his interests to athletics.

Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a video game character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha, Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, yet utterly feeble character.
Shortly after the release of Street Fighter II, rival company SNK released their own fighting game, Art of Fighting. The principal character of this series, Ryo Sakazaki, bore a resemblance in appearance and name to Ryu, as well as other aesthetic similarities to Ken, wearing an orange gi and sporting blonde hair.
In humorous retaliation, Street Fighter II co-designer Akiman drew an artwork of Sagat holding a defeated opponent by the head during the release of Street Fighter II' - Champion Edition. The defeated opponent wore an attire similar to Ryo's: an orange karate gi with a torn black shirt underneath and geta sandals; but had long dark hair tied to a ponytail like Robert Garcia, another character from the Art of Fighting series. This character design would become the basis of Dan, who was introduced as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha until finally becoming a selectable character by default in the game's sequel, Street Fighter Alpha

Darkrai resembles a dark, sinister ghost, although, surprisingly, it is only a Dark-type, and not a Ghost-type. Its main body color is an obsidian black. Its head is small compared to the rest of its body and is surrounded by a strange necklace of red, teeth-like projections that resemble a Misdreavus' necklace. Its eyes are bright blue with white pupils, giving it an other-worldly appearance. White hair or smoke floats from its head, obscuring much of its facial features. Its club-shaped arms are clawed and look muscular,
Dhalsim (ダルシム, Darushimu), is a video game character in the Street Fighter fighting game series who made his debut in the original Street Fighter II as one of the game's original eight main characters. In his backstory, Dhalsim is characterized as a pacifist who goes against his beliefs by entering the World Warrior tournament to raise money for his village. In his ending, Dhalsim wins the tournament and returns home on his elephant Kodal. Three years later, Dhalsim's son, Datta, discovers a photograph of his father from the tournament.
From the original Street Fighter II and up until Super Street Fighter II, this ending graphic was drawn in a comical style. In Super Street Fighter II Turbo, it was changed to a more realistic style, with Dhalsim's wife and son - Sari and Datta, respectively - added to it. Dhalsim would later appear in the Street Fighter Alpha sub-series in Street Fighter Alpha 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3. In his storyline in the Alpha games (which are set prior to the events of Street Fighter II), Dhalsim attempts to hunt down an "evil spirit" (M. Bison) that is threatening the world. Dhalsim also appears in the Street Fighter EX sub-series, beginning with the
Diddy Kong (ディディーコング, Didī Kongu), originally known as Donkey Diddy, is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country. He lives on Donkey Kong Island in the Kongo Jungle, and is identified by his red hat, which has a Nintendo logo on it, and shirt. He is described as the "wannabe nephew" of Donkey Kong in the Donkey Kong 64 manual and occasionally as a chimpanzee, despite his tail. He is noted for his ability to use a jet pack fashioned from a barrel and a pair of wooden guns that shoot peanuts. He was originally created by Donkey Kong Country developer Rare as an updated version of Donkey Kong Jr., but was re-released to be an original character in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest due to Nintendo's response.
Diddy Kong has made many appearances in the Donkey Kong series, appearing in all Donkey Kong Country games and Donkey Kong Land games, notably as the lead character in Donkey Kong Country 2 along with Dixie Kong. He received a spin-off called Diddy Kong Racing, and more recently as co-star to Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Through his relationship with Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong has
Dobby is a house-elf, who, unlike most other house-elves, wanted to be freed. He has three fingers and one opposable thumb. Dobby was the abused and tormented slave of the Malfoys before the events of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. In his first appearance in the series in Chamber of Secrets, Dobby knew of Lucius Malfoy's plans to re-open the Chamber of Secrets using Tom Riddle's school diary for months before it happened. As an attempt to discourage Harry from returning to Hogwarts, Dobby begins to intercept the letters that Harry's friends sent him. Dobby then appears at Privet Drive to warn Harry and tell him of the danger of returning to Hogwarts, and attempts to persuade him to stay away so he would be safe from harm. When Dobby's attempts fail to persuade Harry, he smashes a pudding in the Dursley family's kitchen. Being caught in the kitchen with the wreckage, and receiving a warning letter for illegal use of magic, Harry is locked up by the Dursleys, who insist that he would not return to Hogwarts, but Ron, Fred and George Weasley are able to rescue Harry in their father's flying Ford Anglia. Dobby later tries to keep Harry away from Hogwarts by magically sealing off the hidden entrance to Platform 9¾, but Harry and Ron foil that plot by piloting the flying car back to school. During a Quidditch match of Gryffindor vs Slytherin, Dobby enchants a Bludger to chase after only Harry; it manages to break his arm. When Harry – having just returned from the Chamber of Secrets – discovers that Dobby's master was Lucius, Harry tricks Malfoy into setting Dobby free – a feat that secures him the house-elf's undying loyalty. Dobby reappears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He has been demanding payment for his services, which makes it difficult for him to find any employment at all. He later obtains a post at Hogwarts, and is the only paid house-elf on the staff (Dumbledore being probably the only employer who would even think of paying a house-elf). In this book, Dobby gives Harry the gillyweed he needs to survive the Second Triwizard Task. Dobby is also the only house-elf who cleans Gryffindor Tower since Hermione begins trying to set the house-elves free, because the house-elves find the clothes insulting. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dobby shows Harry the hidden Room of Requirement, which Harry uses for his Dumbledore's Army meetings. When Professor Umbridge finds out about the meetings later, Dobby enters the room to warn the group to leave. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Harry entrusts Dobby to help watch Kreacher when he orders him to work in the Hogwarts kitchens with the other house-elves. When Harry needs somebody to follow Draco Malfoy, he is helped by Dobby and Kreacher. When they report back, Kreacher tells Harry only mundane things, such as Malfoy's class schedule, while Dobby cuts to the chase and tells Harry about Malfoy's visits to the Room of Requirement. Dobby makes his last appearance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when Aberforth Dumbledore sends Dobby to rescue Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the cellar of Malfoy Manor. Dobby helps Harry and Ron escape their prison and gets Luna Lovegood, Dean Thomas, and Mr Ollivander out of the manor, then helps Harry and Ron free Hermione and Griphook from torture at the hands of Bellatrix Lestrange. While he succeeds in his task, Bellatrix throws a knife at Harry, but the knife hits Dobby instead, who dies before he can be healed. Harry physically digs the grave without using magic, and writes upon the stone: "Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf". Dobby was voiced by Toby Jones in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and is confirmed to return for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Some suggest the makers of the Harry Potter films modelled Dobby's appearance after Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the Comic Relief spoof, Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan, he is played by Basil Brush.

John H. Watson, M.D., known as Dr. Watson, is a character in the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Watson is Sherlock Holmes's friend, assistant and sometime flatmate, and he is the first person narrator of all but four stories in the Sherlock Holmes canon.
Doctor Watson's first name is mentioned on only three occasions. Part one of the very first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, is subtitled 'Being a reprint from the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D., Late of the Army Medical Department'. In '"The Problem of Thor Bridge"', Watson says that his dispatch box is labeled 'John H. Watson, M.D'. Watson's wife calls him 'James' in "The Man with the Twisted Lip"; Dorothy L. Sayers speculates that Morstan may be referring to his middle name Hamish (which means James in Scottish Gaelic), though Doyle himself never addresses this beyond including the initial. In every other instance, he is called either Doctor or Watson, or both together, and his first name is never used again.
In A Study in Scarlet, Watson, as the narrator, recounts his earlier life before meeting Holmes. It is established that Watson received his medical degree from the University of London
Dominic "Dom" Santiago is a fictional soldier and prominent ally in the Xbox 360 title, Gears of War. He is voiced by Carlos Ferro. In the games co-op and 2 player modes, the player can take control of Dom.
Santiago, like Fenix, is a member of the Coalition of Ordered Governments￢ﾀﾙ Army. He has a close friendship with Marcus Fenix, whom he has saved twice throughout Gears of Wars￢ﾀﾙ story line.

Santiago later rescues Fenix from the prison, moments before it is destroyed by the Locust Horde.
After Fenix is reinstated into the military, he assists him on a mission to deploy to the resonator, a device which enable the human forces to map, and later destroy the Locust￢ﾀﾙs stronghold. Santiago helps his comrades by convincing one of his civilian friends into lending him a vehicle, which eventually allows his squad to travel to the depths of the enemy￢ﾀﾙs stronghold. He also supports Fenix during the game￢ﾀﾙs final battle against General RAAM.
Doug Rattmann, also known as the Ratman, is a former Aperture Science employee who was apparently forced to navigate the Aperture Science Enrichment Center as a Test Subject. During his testing period, he went slightly mad and left messages of help and warning on the walls.
Although unseen for the entirety of both games, his scribblings make him an established presence in Portal and Portal 2, but at the time of the latter, he appears to have died. His full name, a play on "Ratman", was given during the Portal ARG.
Doctor Ivo Robotnik (ロボトニック, Robotonikku), also known by his alias Doctor Eggman (ドクター・エッグマン, Dokutā Egguman), is a video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series created by Sega. Dr. Eggman is a rotund mad scientist with an IQ of 300, who plans to conquer the world in order to build his Eggman Empire, and is the archenemy of Sonic the Hedgehog. His original character designer was Naoto Ōshima, and while he has gone through several large appearance changes throughout the series, his in-game designs retain several basic characteristics, such as his egg-shaped body, red-black-yellow clothing, pince-nez sunglasses and large mustache. Most of the time, Dr. Eggman is portrayed as horribly immature: he tends to throw temper tantrums when he fails or is offended, despite his incredible intellect and skilled mind. He has appeared in almost every Sonic the Hedgehog video game since his first appearance in the 1991 title Sonic the Hedgehog, and is also a prominent character in other Sonic media, including comics, novels, animated TV series, and an Original video animation.
In April 1990, Sega commissioned its AM8 R&D department to create a character who would
The E-10000G model accounts for most of Doctor Eggman's robotic minions deployed during Sonic Riders. Racing bots capable of riding Extreme Gear, these green-painted machines compete against Team Sonic and the Babylon Rogues in races of the EX World Grand Prix and beyond.
E-123 Omega (オメガ, Omega), or, technically, E-123 Ω, is a fictional robot from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game universe, first appearing in Sonic Heroes. In this game, it is explained that he was created by Doctor Eggman, and that he is out to destroy him, due to lack of respect and want for revenge. He has frequently been shown as an ally of Shadow and, to a lesser extent, Rouge.
The 24th and last of Doctor Eggman's E-100 series robots, Omega debuted in Sonic Heroes as a robot designed to prevent the release of Shadow the Hedgehog and, in case he failed, to control Shadow when he is freed. To accomplish this, Eggman sealed him in an abandoned base with Shadow. After Rouge accidentally activates Omega, he decided to join her and Shadow in order to prove his status as the most powerful E-Series robot, abandoning his original programming and taking revenge on his creator and the other machines he built. In so doing, the robot finds himself with free will and a cold personality, maintaining that other Eggman robots are inferior to him. Whilst seemingly distant and single-minded, he can occasionally show moments of caring, such as to Rouge at the end of Sonic Heroes.
Omega also makes
Eddy Gordo (エディ・ゴルド, Edi Gorudo) is an Afro-Brazilian video game character from the Tekken series by Namco Bandai. He made his debut in the arcade version of Tekken 3 in 1997 and his first console appearance was in the 1998 PlayStation port of the title. Eddy has since appeared in every game thereafter (albeit he is not a participant in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 story-wise), although he shares the same character slot as Christie Monteiro in Tekken 4 and Tekken 5, but regained his own slot in subsequent games beginning with Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection.
Eddy's storyline from his debut through Tekken 5 revolved around his quest for revenge for the murder of his parents, culminating in the defeat of Kazuya Mishima during the events of Tekken 5. From Tekken 5 onward, Eddy's plot focused on his and Christie Monteiro's search for a cure to an unknown illness that Christie's grandfather, Eddy's Capoeira master, was suffering from. Eddy was the first Capoeira practitioner to appear in the Tekken franchise, followed by Tiger Jackson, an alternate costume for Eddy in Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament, and Christie Monteiro, Eddy's replacement in Tekken 4. Eddy has received heavy
This giant stone statue is the guardian of the pyramid Eggman decided to use as his base in Sonic Adventure 2. Eggman used a mind-control device to keep the brute under his command, but after Sonic smashed the brainwashing headgear, the golem went berzerk.
Egg Pawns are perhaps the most quantitatively numerous of Eggman's robots ever mass-produced. The ubiquitous workforce of the Eggman Empire for games between Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog, Egg Pawns take design inspiration from the humanoid E-100 Series of Sonic Adventure and the Egg Robos of Sonic & Knuckles. As is often the case with Dr. Eggman's creations, the robots play into the fat scientist's ego-trip by populating his dominion with machines built in his own image.

Ekans and Arbok, known in Japan as Arbo (アーボ, Ābo) and Ābokku (アーボック), are Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Ekans and Arbok first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.
Ekans and Arbok were two of several different designs conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Ken Sugimori for the first generation of Pocket Monsters games Red and Green, which were localized outside of Japan as Pokémon Red and Blue. Originally called "Arbo" and "Abokku" in Japanese, Nintendo decided to give the various Pokémon species "clever and descriptive names" related to their appearance or features when translating the game for western audiences as a means to make the characters more relatable to American children. The name Ekans and Arbok are reversals of the words snake and cobra (the latter spelled with a k instead of c). Ekans' Japanese name, Arbo, is a reversal by morae of the word boa.
Ekans is known as the Rattlesnake Pokémon. This reptilian Pokémon has a rattle at the tip of

Created by Ron Gilbert for LucasArts, the character first appears in The Secret of Monkey Island and is one of the core characters in the franchise.

Elaine is the governor of the Tri-Island Area, a fictional group of pirate islands in the Caribbean. She is loved by the undead pirate LeChuck, who never ceases to pursue her affections and attempts to turn her into his undead bride, but Elaine instead falls in love with hapless protagonist Guybrush Threepwood. Elaine is consistently kidnapped by LeChuck, prompting Guybrush to attempt a rescue, although Elaine is usually more than capable of escaping predicaments by herself. She eventually marries Guybrush and relinquishes her gubernatorial

Elmo is a Muppet character on the children's television show Sesame Street. He is a furry red monster who hosts the last full fifteen minute segment on Sesame Street, Elmo's World, which is aimed at toddlers. His puppeteer, Kevin Clash, uses falsetto to produce his voice.
Elmo is self-described as three-and-a-half years old and his three-and-a-half years birthday is always on February 3, making his actual birthday August 3. Elmo characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Elmo has a question" rather than, "I have a question"). Sesame Street staff writer Nancy Sans once described Elmo's origins: "There was this extra red puppet lying around and the cast would pick him up sometimes and try to create a personality, but nothing seemed to materialize." The puppet was performed by Caroll Spinney in the early 1970s, Brian Muehl from 1979 to 1981, and Richard Hunt from 1981 to 1984. Sans continues that "...one day [in 1984], Kevin Clash, a talented puppeteer, raised him up and brought energy and life into Elmo and from that day forward we would all write for Elmo. Kevin's performance inspired the writers to develop Elmo's character". John Tartaglia,

Ethan Rayne is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the television program Buffy the Vampire Slayer, portrayed by Robin Sachs.
Little is known about Ethan's early years, although his accent suggests he is English. The first time he appears is in the episode "Halloween", when he reveals his dark nature. More information is revealed in the second season episode "The Dark Age". In the early 1970s, Ethan met and became friends with Rupert Giles, then known as "Ripper." Giles had dropped out of Oxford University and traveled to London to seek out the worst crowd that would have him. Associating with the dregs of the supernatural subculture that exist in the Buffyverse, he was in a phase later described by Xander Harris as an "electric Kool-Aid funky Satan groove."
The group practiced small magics for pleasure and gain, until Ethan and Ripper discovered something bigger: the demon known as Eyghon, or the Sleepwalker. Tattooing themselves with the Mark of Eyghon, they would take turns falling asleep, and the rest of the group would summon the demon into the sleeper. According to Giles, it was an extraordinary high, a euphoric feeling of power, but was also incredibly risky.
Falco Lombardi, known as Falco Rambaldi (ファルコ・ランバルディ, Faruko Ranbarudi) in Japan, is an anthropomorphic falcon or pheasant character from the Star Fox series of video games.

Funky Kong usually allows Donkey Kong to go back to worlds he's previously completed in the game. However, come Donkey Kong Country 3 he took on a different role as a watercraft merchant, allowing Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong to reach new areas of the game world.
In Donkey Kong 64, Funky switched jobs yet again to become the munitions expert of the group. He supplied various weaponry and upgrades to the Kongs, and donned camouflage clothing, goggles and a large rocket on his back in favor of his old board shorts and sunglasses.
Funky was also a regular on the Donkey Kong Country cartoon, where he was voiced by Damon D'Oliveira. An obvious difference one might notice is that the cartoon version of Funky had tan fur as opposed to the brown fur his video game counterpart had. He was also given a Jamaican accent. However, like his game counterpart, Funky is keen on surfing (although we never see him doing it), and like in the

The Galactic Republic is the name of the interplanetary State used in the fictional Star Wars universe prior to the establishment of the Galactic Empire. The form of this government, created by the Senate, was introduced in the Prequel Trilogy. By the time of the original Star Wars trilogy, it is referred to as the Old Republic. It was a democratic, though eventually ineffectual, constitutional republic tied up in layers of bureaucracy.
The Republic, as it was commonly known, was a republican government that was able to sustain itself for over twenty-five thousand years.
The Republic itself was formed in 25,053 BBY when the first "Galactic Constitution" was signed on Coruscant, after the Corellian Hyperdrive connected many worlds in the Galactic Core. Whether this means that Coruscant was the original homeworld of humans or simply the most powerful world at the time is still up for debate, and there has been little said about the event other than that it occurred. The Republic was made up of several hundred thousand worlds.
The Republic began as a mutual protection and economic alliance among a number of planets in the Galactic Core. Each member world chose a Senator to represent
Ganon (ガノン), anglicized Gannon in early Japanese materials, and also known as Ganondorf (ガノンドロフ, Ganondorofu), is a fictional character who is the primary antagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. He is the final boss of most games in the series. He was first given a back-story in A Link to the Past.

With near unlimited power he became the king of all evil His specific motives vary from game to game, but most often they include capturing Princess Zelda, and planning to achieve the domination of Hyrule (and presumably the world beyond it). To this end, he seeks the full Triforce, a powerful magical relic, which will grant whatever wish the bearer desires, and usually manipulates several other villains to accomplish his plans and ambitions. In most games he already possesses the Triforce of Power, which gives him godlike strength
Ginevra Molly "Ginny" Weasley is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Ginny's presence early in the series is minor: she is identified solely as the younger sister of Ron Weasley, Harry Potter's best friend, and harbours a crush on Harry, while bashful in his presence. Ginny's role is greatly expanded as the storyline progresses, with Rowling developing her character and eventually including her as an active participant in Harry's adventures and the quest to defeat Lord Voldemort, and as Harry's principal love interest.
Ginny is the youngest of the seven Weasley children and the only daughter; she is "the first girl to be born into the Weasley clan for several generations." Rowling's official site states her birthday as 11 August, 1981.
In a joint interview with The Leaky Cauldron and MuggleNet, Rowling revealed that she "always knew" that Ginny and Harry "were going to come together and then part." The author explained that, as the series progresses, Harry, and by extension the reader, discovers that Ginny is in fact the ideal girl for him.

Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo (クリボー, Kuribō, "Chestnut People"), are a fictional species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise. They first appeared in the NES video game Super Mario Bros. as the first enemy players encounter. They have appeared outside of video games, including in film, television, and other media. They are usually brown and are most commonly seen walking around aimlessly, often as an obstacle, in video games. They were included late in the development of Super Mario Bros. in order to create a simple, easy-to-defeat enemy.
The species is considered one of the most iconic elements of the Mario series, appearing in nearly every game in the series, and is often ranked amongst the most famous enemies in video games. Crave Online described it as the series' "everyman". It has been compared to other generic enemies in video games, such as the "Met" enemy from the Mega Man series'. The video game incarnation has been made into several plush toys.
Goombas were first introduced in the video game Super Mario Bros., and were the last enemy added to the game after play testers stated that the Koopa Troopa was too tricky an enemy. As a result, the designers
Gotenks is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball Z anime and manga. He is the result of Trunks and Goten fusing using the Fusion dance technique. Although he is the youngest of all fusions performed in the series, Gotenks is quite powerful as he can easily rival powerful individuals such as Vegeta, Goku, or even Majin Buu.
Gotenks is a mixture of the two young half-Saiyans, Goten and Trunks. He wears a vest, one which all characters created by the Fusion Dance have. Around his waist is a sash, and he wears white silky pants, dark shoes, and black wristbands. His hair style is a mixture of the hair of both Trunks and Goten, with the majority of it (specifically, where it is black) being similar to that of Goten. The sides and back of his hair is purplish and silver, similar to Trunks' hair, and the style of it is similar overall to Goten's while in Super Saiyan form. Like Goten and Trunks, he is extremely playful and rarely takes anything seriously. There have been speculations between fans if Gotenks is half Human/half Saiyan, whole Saiyan, or whole Human. However, since genetically a half-breed of one thing and a half-breed of another combined still equal a half-breed,
Guile (ガイル, Gairu) is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games.
Guile first appears in Street Fighter II (1991) as one of the eight selectable characters featured in the first release of the game. A JTAC in the United States Air Force Tactical Air Control Party, he leaves his country and family to enter the World Warrior tournament to avenge the death of his friend Charlie, who was killed by M. Bison, the tournament's sponsor, sometime before the events of the game. In his ending, he defeats Bison, but is dissuaded from killing him by his wife and their daughter.
Guile's war buddy Charlie would appear in the later prequel series Street Fighter Alpha, although Guile himself did not appear in this sub-series until the console versions of Street Fighter Alpha 3 (1998). Originally CAPCOM wanted to make Guile an Army Ranger, but thought it wasn't hardcore enough and stumbled across the JTAC career-field, they originally made Guile a hidden character in the initial PlayStation version of the game, though subsequent versions made him part of the initial roster. In his storyline in the game, Guile is an Air Force JTAC ordered to track down Charlie, who has gone
Guy (ガイ, Gai) is a video game character who first appears in the 1989 arcade beat-em-up Final Fight by Capcom. Guy would later reemerge, along with other Final Fight characters, as a player character in Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams and its sequels. Guy is a red-clad ninpō master of Japanese descent who has been taught the Bushin (武神, Warrior God) form of ninjutsu. The kanji, 武神, written on Guy's top literally translates to "God of War".
Guy is one of three playable characters, along with Cody and Mike Haggar, in the original arcade version of Final Fight, released for the arcades by Capcom in 1989. Each of the three fighters featured their own unique characteristics, with Guy being the fastest of the three due to his ninjutsu skills. One of his most novel techniques in the game is the "Off-the-Wall Kick", a technique which allows Guy to bounce off the wall with a jump kick. Due to space constraint, Guy was initially omitted from the SNES port of the game, with Cody and Haggar being the only playable characters in that version.
Capcom later produced a second SNES version titled Final Fight Guy, which replaced Cody's character with that of Guy, with the in-game explanation
Guybrush Ulysses Threepwood is the main character of the Monkey Island series of computer adventure games by LucasArts. The voice of Guybrush is actor Dominic Armato in the third, fourth and fifth games, as well as the enhanced remakes of The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge. Though a "mighty pirate" by his own account, it is a running joke throughout the games for characters to garble Guybrush Threepwood's unusual name, either deliberately or accidentally.
The origin of the name "Guybrush" comes in part from Deluxe Paint, the tool used by the artists to create the character sprite. Since the character had no name at this point, the file was simply called 'Guy'. When the file was saved, Steve Purcell, the artist responsible for the sprite, added 'brush' to the filename, indicating that it was the Deluxe Paint "brush file" for the "Guy" sprite. The file name was then "guybrush.bbm", so the developers eventually just started referring to this unnamed 'Guy' as "Guybrush". Guybrush's surname "Threepwood" was decided upon in a company contest and is derived from P. G. Wodehouse's family of characters including Galahad Threepwood and Freddie Threepwood (with
(Die Hammer-Brￃﾼder in Germany, Hermanos Mazo in Mexico, Frￃﾨres Marteaux in France) are enemy characters present in many of Nintendo's Mario series of video games. Their trademark distinction is that they appear in pairs. Their trademark move is that they attack by throwing large hammers in an arcing path. Their appearance shows them having distinct beaks, classifying them as "Beaked Koopas". However, there are some games where they don't have the distinct beaks and look like normal Koopas.
The Hammer Brothers are one of the few Mario characters (its first appearence om Super Mario Bros.) that still enjoys usage today. They often appear in pairs (hence the name "brothers"), but they sometimes appear separately.
They are usually found on platforms and jump up and down and move back and forth. They are notorious for being one of the hardest enemies to defeat, making avoiding them the easier choice, because they move around so quickly and constantly throw a continuous barrage of hammers all over the place. Bowser moves much slower and the later Bowsers only send 1-2 barrages of hammers.
In Super Mario Bros. 3, several variants of the Hammer Bros. were introduced:
Harry Mason is the playable protagonist of the PlayStation video game Silent Hill and the upcoming "re-imagining" Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.
Seven years before the events of the game, Harry and his wife found a child on the side of the road outside of Silent Hill. They adopted her and named her Cheryl. The moment that Harry and his wife find Cheryl can be heard at the end of Silent Hill: Origins. Harry's wife was ill and died three years later.
While driving to Silent Hill for a vacation with Cheryl, Harry sees a young woman walk in front of his Jeep. He swerves to avoid the figure, crashing into a ditch and blacking out. He awakens several hours later to find Cheryl missing from the vehicle.
Silent Hill's gameplay consists of Harry's quest to find his daughter in the town. He finds that the town is shrouded in fog and is mostly inhabited by monsters. The town also frequently switches to the Otherworld, known as "the darkness" in the game. The Otherworld contains no light and stronger monsters. It is discovered throughout the game that the darkness is caused by Alessa Gillespie, a powerful young psychic who was burnt alive by her mother Dahlia and other cult members
Harvey Kinkle is a character from the various shows with Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
In the series, Harvey and Sabrina are romantically involved throughout high school. For much of the series, Harvey is not aware of Sabrina's Witch status until he finds out at the end of Season Four: "The End of an Era".
Harvey Kinkle was a mortal boy whose full name was Harvey Dwight Kinkle. He has a younger brother and a baby sister named Una, born at the end of season 3. He was close friends with Sabrina, Salem, Roxie, Morgan, Jenny, Valerie and Brad Alcerro. Harvey was Sabrina's boyfriend until the 4th season, when he discovered that she was a witch in the season finale. The reason for this was that Sabrina had cast too many spells on him over the years and when the limit was reached his memory was no longer erased after each spell was reversed. After this, Harvey left the show.
Harvey made a few brief appearances during Season Five. In Do You See What I See?, Harvey called Sabrina and apologized for the way he acted after learning she was a witch. Harvey returned to the show full-time in Season Six. Sabrina's Great Aunt Irma (Barbara Eden) later discovered Harvey knew Sabrina was a witch, and

Herman Toothrot is a fictional character in the Monkey Island series of adventure games developed by LucasArts. Herman is based on the typical shipwrecked, big-bearded sailor who appears in many desert island adventures, other examples being Ben Gunn from the novel Treasure Island and Robinson Crusoe, not to mention many a comic story which features similar marooned white men. He has appeared in some form in every game of the series, with an increasingly prominent role in the fourth game of the series, Escape from Monkey Island.
In Escape, Herman's backstory was entirely rewritten, causing severe continuity errors. He was revealed to have amnesia and in reality be Horatio Tuarqemada Marley, the governor of Melee Island, who had been assumed to be dead. This is inconsistent with his original backstory from the first Monkey Island game, and Escape does not explain the resulting plot holes.
Guybrush Threepwood meets Herman in the first game of the series, The Secret of Monkey Island. Herman is an old, ragged castaway who was shipwrecked on Monkey Island, where he has lived for over 20 years, losing a little bit of memory and sanity in the meantime. According to Herman, his ship sank
Hilda Spellman is a character featured in the Archie comic book Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Hilda is a full witch (as opposed to half or fully mortal) who lives in the fictional town of Greendale (in the 1990s live-action sitcom, Hilda lives in fictional Westbridge, Massachusetts). Hilda lives with her niece Sabrina Spellman, sister Zelda Spellman, and the family cat Salem, a former warlock turned into a cat as punishment for his attempt at world domination.
Hilda debuted as "Hilda the Witch" in Archie's Mad House #19 (June 1962) as an ugly witch with dark hair and green skin. She was featured throughout the series in solo stories, as well as the "host" of the comic book (in a role similar to the Crypt-Keeper from the Tales from the Crypt comic book series). During her early appearances in Archie's Mad House, she was not connected to the Sabrina stories. However, a prototype of the "Aunt Hilda" character named "Greta the Fairy Witch Mother" (who debuted in Archie's Mad House #28 and was similar in physical appearance to Hilda the Witch) appeared in early Sabrina stories. Eventually, Hilda the Witch and Greta the Fairy Witch Mother evolved into the Aunt Hilda character in Archie's
Iblis, also known as the Flames of Disaster, is an immortal monster of mass destruction that represents the raw power of Solaris. It acts as the main villain in Silver the Hedgehog's story in 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog.
Iceman is a fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a founding member of the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in X-Men vol. 1 #1, (September 1963).
A mutant, Iceman has the ability of cryokinesis where he can freeze anything around him and can also turn his body into ice. Although he is an Omega-level mutant, Drake has yet to tap into his full mutant potential. He has, however, begun to take more interest over the years in developing his abilities. One of the original X-Men, Iceman has had a frequent presence in X-Men (and Spider-Man)-related comics, video games, animated series, and movies.
Shawn Ashmore portrayed Iceman in the X-Men films, and voices the character in The Super Hero Squad Show.

is a fictional character of the Pokￃﾩmon franchise.
Igglybuff's name is styled in a similar way to its evolved forms, Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff, implying their relation. "Iggly" most likely is to rhyme with "Jiggly", or "Wiggly" for its evolved forms, and "buff" refers to the fact that it is oddly strong for its looks or to rhyme with "Puff", or "Tuff" of its evolved forms. Whatever the case, Igglybuff and all its forms share similar names in every language.
Igglybuff resembles a small pink balloon. It has a round body with four tiny appendages. On top of its head there is a tuft, and on its forehead a counterclockwise swirl. It has two red eyes. Because of this, it is sometimes considered the cutest of all Pokￃﾩmon. But, it also makes it look weak, due to its small body, though it is not.
Like its evolutions Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff, Igglybuff's body shares many properties with a balloon. It is very soft, elastic and flexible. This enables it to bounce a long way, to the extent that Igglybuff finds it more efficient to move around by bouncing instead of walking on its two short legs.
Although Igglybuff too has the notorious singing ability of its evolutionary chain, its
Inspector G. Lestrade or Mr. Lestrade is a fictional character, a Scotland Yard detective appearing in several of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle used the name of a friend from his days at the University of Edinburgh, a Saint Lucian medical student by the name of Joseph Alexandre Lestrade. In "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", Lestrade's first initial is revealed to be G. Lestrade is described as "a little sallow rat-faced, dark-eyed fellow" in A Study in Scarlet and "a lean, ferret-like man, furtive and sly-looking," in "The Boscombe Valley Mystery". He was summarised by H. Paul Jeffers in the following words:
"He is the most famous detective ever to walk the corridors of Scotland Yard, yet he existed only in the fertile imagination of a writer. He was Inspector Lestrade. We do not know his first name, only his initial: G. Although he appears thirteen times in the immortal adventures of Sherlock Holmes, nothing is known of the life outside the Yard of the detective whom Dr. Watson described unflatteringly as sallow, rat-faced, and dark-eyed and whom Holmes saw as quick and energetic but wholly conventional, lacking in imagination, and normally out of
Iori Yagami (八神 庵, Yagami Iori) is a character from the SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters video game series that first appeared in The King of Fighters '95 as the leader of the Rivals Team. He is an iconic character of the series, and regularly appears on publicity material and merchandise. Iori is a central character to the series' plot, and the initial enemy and eventual rival of Kyo Kusanagi. He was created specifically to become Kyo's rival as his name and abilities were designed to relate him with the Yamata no Orochi legend. The designers ended up liking him so much that they take care how his character is developed along the series.
Iori is the heir of the Yagami clan, who wield pyrokinetic powers and sealed the Orochi demon along with the Kusanagi and Yata clans. However, after betraying the Kusanagi clan, the Yagami are cursed by Orochi giving them powers that cause all members to die young. The character harbors hatred against the other clans, but later becomes obsessed to kill their heir Kyo. Due to that, Iori sometimes helps him in order to have the opportunity to have a final fight against him. Aside from the main series, Iori appears in several other media series
Ivysaur, known in Japan as Fushigisou (フシギソウ, Fushigisō), is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Ivysaur first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.
Ivysaur was one of several different designs conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Ken Sugimori for the first generation of Pocket Monsters games Red and Green, which were localized outside of Japan as Pokémon Red and Blue. Originally called "Fushigisou" in Japanese, Nintendo decided to give the various Pokémon species "clever and descriptive names" related to their appearance or features when translating the game for western audiences as a means to make the characters more relatable to American children. As a result it was renamed Ivysaur, which IGN wrote is a combination of the plant "ivy" and "saur" from dinosaur.
Ivysaur, known as the Seed Pokémon, is the evolved form of Bulbasaur. Aside from becoming taller and heavier than Bulbasaur, its trademark bulb becomes a pink flower bud, and four leaves now
Jango Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. He first appeared as a supporting villain in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and later served as the protagonist of the LucasArts video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, played by Temuera Morrison.
Jango Fett serves as the host-clone for the Clone Army of the Republic, and subsequently some of the Imperial Stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire. His "son", Boba Fett, is, in reality, an unaltered clone which he requested in his contract with the Kamino cloners, whom he regards as a son. Jango Fett and the clone army he spawns are ultimately a tool used by Chancellor Palpatine to destroy the Jedi Order and gain emergency powers over the Republic in his bid for galactic conquest.
In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Jango is depicted as the genetic template for the Grand Army of the Republic on Kamino, becoming entangled in a shady plot by Count Dooku (Jango also serves as Dooku's personal bodyguard) and the mysterious deceased Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. Jango is later hired by Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala in retaliation for her actions in the first prequel.
is a fictional character in the video game EarthBound and is one of the four main characters. He is the same age as Ness and is the technical genius of the group.
Jeff is from the Snow Wood Boarding School in Winters. His traits are those of a stereotypical nerd; he wears glasses and lacks physical ability, but is great with mechanics. Jeff wears glasses to correct for myopia. He wakes up in the middle of the night at a point receiving a telepathic message from Paula informing him that she and Ness need help. At that time, Ness and Paula were taken under captivity by zombies during their investigation of the undead-infested town Threed. Jeff breaks out of his dormitory with help from his friend Tony. He also acquires the Bad Key Machine from Maxwell, an older student at the school, in order to unlock the lockers in the store room. Maxwell also allows Jeff to save his game. Once he breaks out, he meets an important character named Brickroad, who devotes himself to making RPG dungeon complexes for unknown reasons. He meets another important character, his long lost dad who he hadn't seen for ten years, the time in the past when Giygas sent attacks to the time Ness comes from. Dr.
Jessica Jane Pride is a fictional character from the films Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. She is the tritagonist of the Toy Story franchise. At Christmas in 1999, the Wall Street Journal called Jessie toys among the hottest of the season. In the movie, she is a very rare toy modeled after a character on the fictional television show Woody's Roundup, where the characters included Sheriff Woody, Jessie, Stinky Pete the Prospector and Bullseye, Woody's horse. Her hair is formed in a ponytail braid tied with a bow. Jessie the doll has a character very similar to the one portrayed on the television show. She is excitable, brave and very athletic. The doll, however, carries a great deal of sadness, as she was abandoned by her original owner, which left her somewhat distrustful. Years of being in storage have made her somewhat withdrawn, and noticeably afraid of the dark, to the extent of hyperventilating whenever she is inside dark enclosed spaces, or even at just the thought of being abandoned.
But she longs to again be a source of joy to a child, and this wish comes true at the end of Toy Story 2 when Andy accepted her (and Bullseye) into his toy collection. In Toy Story 3, while she
Jet the Hawk (ジェット・ザ・ホーク Jetto za Hōku?) is the 14-year-old hawk leader of the Babylon Rogues, and is often nicknamed the "Legendary Wind Master" due to his mastery of Extreme Gear. He's Sonic's most potent rival in Sonic Riders, and he uses a Type-J board that allows him to reach high speeds.
Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin (プリン), is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Jigglypuff first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise. Jigglypuff is voiced by Rachael Lillis in English and by Mika Kanai in Japanese. In live action musical Pokémon Live!, Jigglypuff is portrayed by Leah Smith.
Known as the Balloon Pokémon, Jigglypuff evolves from Igglybuff when it reaches a certain point of happiness, and evolves into Wigglytuff when exposed to a certain item. Its name is a combination of the words "jiggly" and "puff", intended to relate to its jelly-like appearance. The character has been featured in a recurring role in the anime series and served as the focus for several printed adaptions of the franchise. Since it appeared in the Pokémon series, Jigglypuff has received generally positive reception. It has been featured in several forms of merchandise, including figurines, plush toys, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
Jigglypuff was one of several different designs conceived by Game
Jill Valentine (ジル・バレンタイン, Jiru Barentain) is a player character in the Resident Evil horror franchise by Capcom. The character, widely regarded as one of the most attractive women in video games, gained great popularity and was met with generally very favorable critical reception, also sparking some video game memes.
Jill made her debut appearance in 1996 as one of the protagonists of the original Resident Evil game, in which she is a member of the U.S. special police force STARS and trapped in a mysterious mansion. During the later events of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil: Revelations, Jill escapes from a city overrun by zombies and becomes a founding member and field operative of the fictional, UN-funded paramilitary group BSAA.
The film series' version of Jill, portrayed by Sienna Guillory, was introduced as a protagonist in Resident Evil: Apocalypse, made a brief appearance in Resident Evil: Afterlife and is the main antagonist in Resident Evil: Retribution.
During development of the original Resident Evil, Jill was conceived as physically weaker than the game's male protagonist Chris Redfield, but she was
James Eugene "Jim" Raynor is a fictional character and a major protagonist in Blizzard Entertainment's science fiction StarCraft series. Raynor is a predominant character in the science fiction real-time strategy video games StarCraft and Brood War, and is the player character in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Outside video games, Raynor appears in the novels Liberty's Crusade and Queen of Blades, while his backstory is explored in the novels Heaven's Devils and Devil's Due. Robert Clotworthy voices the character in all video game appearances.
Created by Chris Metzen and James Phinney, Raynor is loosely based on a character of the same name in the 1991 film Rush. Metzen conceived Raynor to represent the ordinary man in a series populated with politically motivated characters. Raynor's physical appearance was designed by Metzen himself. A Terran in his early thirties, Raynor is a former soldier and outlaw who eventually becomes a marshal on a backwater colony world. Raynor joins Arcturus Mengsk's revolution against the oppressive Confederacy of Man but becomes disillusioned with Mengsk's genocidal tactics, forming his own paramilitary group to challenge Mengsk's tyranny.
Jin Kazama (風間 仁, Kazama Jin) is a fictional character and main protagonist of the Tekken series released by Namco Bandai. Jin is consistently voiced by Isshin Chiba since he debuted in Tekken 3. Trained by his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima, in order to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament, Jin wishes to avenge his mother's apparent death. However, during the tournament it is revealed that Jin possesses the Devil Gene (デビルの血, Debiru no Chi (Lit. 'Devil's blood')), a genetic abnormality within his body, which causes the betrayal of Heihachi who wants to take it. He is also antagonized by his father, Kazuya Mishima, from whom he inherited the gene. While dealing with them, Jin loses control of the Devil Gene, which causes his transformation into an alter-ego named Devil Jin (デビル仁, Debiru Jin), first introduced as a non-playable character in Tekken 3 and playable in Tekken 5.
Outside the video games, Jin has also appeared in the animated adaptations from the games as well as the live-action film. Jin was created to be the new protagonist of the series whose constant fights with his family members would eventually lead him to become an apparent antagonist as crafted by the director,
The Joker is a fictional character, a supervillain who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. He is the archenemy of Batman, having been directly responsible for numerous tragedies in Batman's life, including the paralysis of Barbara Gordon and the death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. Created by Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger and Bob Kane, the character first appeared in Batman #1 (Spring 1940).
Throughout his comic book appearances, the Joker is portrayed as a master criminal whose characterization has varied. The original and currently dominant image is of a highly intelligent psychopath with a warped, sadistic sense of humor, while other writers have portrayed him as an eccentric prankster. Similarly, throughout the character's long history, there have been several different origin tales; they most commonly depict him as falling into a tank of chemical waste, which bleaches his skin white and turns his hair green and his lips bright red, giving him the appearance of a clown. He has been repeatedly analyzed by critics as the perfect adversary for Batman; their long, dynamic relationship often parallels the concept of yin and yang.
The Joker has been portrayed by Cesar
K. Rool (a pun on the word "cruel") is a fictional villain in the form of an obese anthropomorphic crocodilian, who appears in a number of video games by numerous developers (primarily Rareware and Nintendo) featuring Donkey Kong. He is the primary antagonist of the Donkey Kong Country series of games and acts as the recurring final boss for several of them, making him analogous to Bowser from the Mario series.
K. Rool is the king of the Kremlings, a massive army of alligator-like creatures that enjoy causing trouble for Donkey Kong and his friends, and are constantly stealing Donkey Kong's banana hoard. A master of disguise, he assumes many different personas (such as "Kaptain K. Rool" or "Baron K. Roolstein"). His most distinguishing features are the tic in his left eye and his golden belly, which may or may not be armor-plated. Considering that his bracers and crown have the same golden metallic sheen, and he cannot be rolled or cartwheeled into, it probably is. In the center of his roundish belly will often have a very obvious outre navel (bellybutton).
In King K. Rool's most common appearance, he wears a red cape and a gold crown, but he is fond of adopting many other looks
Kain is a fictional character, and the main protagonist and titular character of the Legacy of Kain video game series. First introduced in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain in 1996, he was created by Denis Dyack and Silicon Knights, and has appeared in all subsequent Legacy of Kain games under the direction of developer Crystal Dynamics. Between games, he serves as either the central playable character, or as an antagonist, but in all his depictions he has consistently been described as an antihero.
Drawing inspiration from the morally-ambiguous character of William Munny from Clint Eastwood's 1992 film Unforgiven, Silicon Knights conceived Kain as a nobleman murdered and revived as a vampire to take revenge on his assassins. He gradually embraces his new existence, and learns of his birthright to maintain balance in Nosgoth (the fictional setting of the series). Crystal Dynamics later portrayed Kain as an Oedipus-like figure, seeking to thwart the fate determined for him before his birth.
Beyond his role in the series, Kain has also featured in tie-in comics, and in Crystal Dynamics' Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. In all of his voiced appearances, he has been played by actor Simon
Ken Masters (ケン・マスターズ, Ken Masutāzu), originally spelled in Japanese as 拳 (Ken), is a video game character created by Capcom. As a main character, he has appeared in all of the Street Fighter games along with his best friend and rival, Ryu. Like Ryu, Ken's goal is to test his power against many different fighters and strive to become stronger.
Ken made his first appearance in the original Street Fighter released in 1987. Ken is three-quarters Japanese. He is characterized as the former sparring partner, best friend and rival of the main character, Ryu, who trained under the same master (a character whose identity would later be fleshed out as Gouken). He wears a red keikogi, has dyed blond hair and fights barefoot (in the original game, Ryu wears red shoes). The single-player tournament can only be played with Ken after the second player defeats the first player in a two-player match. Ken was also named one of the best fighters in the game.
Ken and Ryu, along with former final boss Sagat, would be the only characters from the original Street Fighter to return in the game's true sequel, Street Fighter II, first released in 1991. In Street Fighter II, Ken is invited to participate in
is an enemy in the Mario series of games, appearing as the boss of Luigi's Mansion and as a minor character in later games. He is member of the ghost-like Boo species and looks like a larger version of the generic Boo (though not as big as Boolossus or Big Boo) with a crown on his head and a slight blueish complexion. King Boo also has a distinctive cackle that is lower in pitch than that of smaller Boos. King Boo is more of a nemesis to Luigi than to Mario.
King Boo has shown a large array of powerful magic from the few games he's starred in, proving he is more powerful than an average Boo. These include:
Super Mario Sunshine
Super Mario 64 DS
Super Princess Peach
In Luigi's Mansion, King Boo is the leader of the evil spirits inhabiting the titular mansion and appears as the final boss, whom Luigi must defeat in order to free Mario. When Luigi reaches the mansion's secret altar, where Mario is being imprisoned in a painting, King Boo sucks Luigi into the painting of Mario, which holds a strange dimension, similar in appearance to the roof. King Boo then attacks using Bowser's body as a Tank of sorts. Luigi must use the Poltergust 3000 ghost-catching
(also spelled King DeDeDe and King De De De, also pronounced "deh" not "dee") is the primary antagonist and arch-enemy to Kirby in Nintendo and HAL Labs' long-running Kirby video game series, appearing in every game except Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. It is commonly pronounced Dee Dee Dee,with long E's (it is pronounced this way in the English anime dub). It can also be pronounced like DehDehDeh, as in deck (it is pronounced this way in the original Japanese anime).
Although he is not necessarily evil, he causes many problems for the inhabitants of Dream Land through selfish mischief, such as stealing their food or building a castle on top of the Fountain Of Dreams, so that the denizens suffer from dreamless sleep. His more heinous actions are more often due to possession by more sinister entity of Dark Matter, along with the rest of the usual franchise enemies. Despite this, he and Kirby have teamed up on occasions with the purpose of taking down a greater common foe.
King Dedede is a large, blue, and shaped somewhat like a penguin (although he is never referred to as a penguin in the games or anime). He dresses in red royal finery, with his personal emblem (a picture of
Bowser, also known as King Koopa, is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise. In Japan, the character is known as Koopa (クッパ, Kuppa) and bears the title of Daimaō (大魔王, lit. "Great Demon King"). In the United States, the character was first referred to as "Bowser, King of the Koopa" and "The sorcerer king" in the Super Mario Bros. instruction manual. Bowser is the leader and most powerful of the turtle-like Koopa race and is the greedy archnemesis of Mario beginning with his first appearance, in the game Super Mario Bros. His ultimate goals are to marry Princess Peach, defeat Mario, and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom. Since his debut, he has appeared in almost every Mario franchise game. Currently, Bowser is voiced by Kenny James.
Bowser was the creation of Nintendo designer and producer Shigeru Miyamoto. Miyamoto had first envisioned Bowser as an ox, basing him on the Ox King from the Toei Animation film Alakazam the Great. However, Nintendo designer Takashi Tezuka pointed out that the character looked a lot more like a turtle than an ox. Despite popular misconception, Bowser is, in fact, supposed to be a turtle, not a dragon. (Though an early

He is one of the most significant characters in the series. He also appears in spin-off games, comics, and a feature film.

Koopa Troopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are anthropomorphic turtles and basic enemies in the critically acclaimed Mario platform video games from Nintendo. They first appeared in Mario Bros. in the sewers of New York, which Mario and Luigi along with the other obstacles roaming the area have to defeat. In the direct sequel to the game, Super Mario Bros., it was originally the only enemy to defeat, but due to its lack of simplicity, a new enemy had to be created, which was the Goomba. The video game promoted the idea of both enemies walking around aimlessly in which Mario has to avoid, but instead of being defeated, it closes in on its shell and allows Mario to use it as a projectile (which, furthermore, can also harm Mario)..
These creatures appear in other media, such as comics, video game spin-offs and anime. They also are playable in the Mario Kart, debuting with Super Mario Kart, but he did not reprise this role until Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. Another common series is Mario Party, in which players do certain activities.
The Koopa Troopa was designed and developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and created as a common enemy for the arcade game Mario Bros., which was a means and the
Kyo Kusanagi (草薙 京, Kusanagi Kyō) is the main character in SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters video game series; he was first introduced in The King of Fighters '94 as the leader of the Japan team. He is one of the iconic characters of the series and regularly appears on publicity material and merchandise. His name and abilities were designed in order to relate him with the Yamata no Orochi legend. Because he was highly popular and his outfit changed along the series, the designers created a few clones with his old appearance.

In The King of Fighters universe, his clan is one of the three clans that sealed the legendary snake entity, Yamata no Orochi.

LeChuck is a fictional character in the Monkey Island series of graphic adventure games. Created by Ron Gilbert for LucasArts, LeChuck was introduced in The Secret of Monkey Island and is the chief antagonist of the series. Gilbert drew on aspects of the characters in the 1988 novel On Stranger Tides for his concept for LeChuck.

Libby was the main villainess on this program; she was a stereotypically snotty cheerleader who picked on Sabrina and her friends. She often referred to Sabrina as a "freak", and, while ignorant of the fact that Sabrina was a witch, she suspected that Sabrina was different. Libby's major conflict with Sabrina revolved around the girls' competition for the affection of Harvey Kinkle, who clearly preferred Sabrina. Only a few personal details are known about Libby. She was once dubbed "pure evil" but simply took this as a compliment. She apparently comes from wealth, and lives in a step-family arrangement of some sort.
We meet Libby in the first episode. She is a cheerleader and is very intimidating. Everyone in the school see's her as a queen, as she is wealthy and popular. She gives Sabrina and Jenny a hard time calling them freaks and calling Jenny a "frizzy freak" due to her curly hair. She is turned into a pineapple by Sabrina (by accident) and is later restored back by Zelda, much to the disapproval of Hilda, who wanted to chop her up. She is also jealous that Harvey would rather be with Sabrina than her. She tries to gain Harvey's affections but fails.
This season, Libby goes for editor for the school paper, but she becomes furious when Sabrina gets it instead. When Sabrina feels she can no longer be editor, Libby thinks she is going to get it, when gets even more angry when Valerie gets it. Libby also has a evil relationship with Mr. Kraft, they both enjoy giving Sabrina and Valerie detention. Libby goes out of her way to make Sabrina and Valeries life miserable calling Sabrina "freak" and Valerie either "Super-Freak" or "Geek". This season, Libby also trades places with Sabrina due to instable weather. Libby is nice and Sabrina tries taking over the world. But Salem saves Sabrina from going to jail and Zelda switches them back. Libby also tries stealing Harvey from Sabrina at the school trip to Disneyworld, but Hilda hides Harvey so Libby can't find him.
This season, Libby continues making witty taunts to Sabrina and Valerie. She teased Valerie about burping in front of everyone by calling her "Valerie Burphead" and saying she should be at school so she can "taunt her to her face". Libby and Mr. Kraft continue making Sabrina and Valeries life hell. Libby also tries stealing Harvey away by taking him to make-out point. Sabrina and Salem accidentally fly up Libbys nose and into her brain after being shrunk by Salems toy. They control Libby from her brain and make her give money to charity, but stop half way after Sabrina relises the change has to come from inside Libby.
this season, Libby is mentioned only in the first episode (although does not appear). She left Westbridge to go to a private school and is not seen again.
Chip appears as a small, red, flying dog-like creature in Sonic Unleashed. He advises Sonic (and therefore the player) in a manner similar to Tikal in Sonic Adventure. In Sonic Unleashed, he (apparently) loses his memory after Sonic lands on top of him in his heavy Werehog form. Chip then follows Sonic on his journey in the hopes of regaining his memory. Along the way, he develops a love for Chocolate Chip Sundaes and chocolate, thus, Sonic gives him the name "Chip". After putting back the sixth continent, Chip remembers that his real name is Light Gaia. Every few million years, he and Dark Gaia awake. Dark Gaia destroys the planet and he has to put it back together. Chip states that when Dr. Eggman split the earth apart, he and Dark Gaia were awakened too early, leading to both Dark Gaia's disintegration and Chip's own amnesia. When Dark Gaia is revived, Chip calls upon the power of the seven Sacred Temples and creates the Gaia Colossus. He restrains Dark Gaia long enough for Sonic to attack him. After Dark Gaia is defeated by Super Sonic, Chip sends Sonic back to the surface of the earth, and then goes back to sleep. All that gets left behind is his necklace which Sonic puts on his wrist. Chip also appears in the Sonic Unleashed short called Night of the Werehog. Chip is voiced by Anthony Salerno in English and Ryoko Shiraishi in Japanese.

Luigi (ルイージ, Ruīji) is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario series, frequently as a sidekick to his brother.

Luna Lovegood is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. The character first appears in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, in which she is described as having straggly, waist-length dirty-blond hair and a dazed look on her face. Her eyes are "silvery", "misty", and "protuberant" (the last quality serving to give her a "permanently surprised look").
The character is portrayed by Irish actress Evanna Lynch in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. On her website, Rowling described the actress as "perfect" for the role. Lynch had to bleach her hair a light blonde colour in order to play the role, and it has been confirmed that she will reprise the role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Rowling has often said that Luna is the "anti-Hermione", as Luna believes things on faith alone, while Hermione grounds her views on facts and logic. Hermione repeatedly tries to convince Luna that her beliefs are nonsense, but to no avail. This is not to suggest that Luna is unintelligent; indeed, as a Ravenclaw, it is her belief that "wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure". Hermione sees Luna as gullible,

A would-be world dictator and a pure incarnation of evil, M. Bison's ambition is to control the world's governments through his covert crime syndicate, Shadaloo (シャドルー, Shadorū, sometimes spelled as "Shadoloo", "Shadowloo" or "Shadowlaw"). He serves as the host of Street Fighter II 's fighting tournament and is the last opponent fought in the game. Several Street Fighter characters—including Guile, T.

Majin Buu (魔人ブウ, Majin Bū, also translated as Majin Boo), is a fictional supervillain and later superhero who first appears in the Dragon Ball manga created by Akira Toriyama. As the manga was adapted to anime, it was split into two sub-series; Buu appears in the second sub-series called Dragon Ball Z, and a third anime-only sub-series called Dragon Ball GT. Following the success of Dragon Ball, he also makes a minor reappearance in Toriyama's self-parody called Neko Majin Z.
Like many Dragon Ball characters, Buu's name is part of a joke. When placed with his creator Bibidi and his son Babidi, the names phonetically form the phrase, "Bibidi Babidi Buu" — a parody of the song "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" — featured in Disney's Cinderella.
Buu is introduced in the series in chapter #460 Majin Buu's Appearance (魔人ブウ出現か！？, Majin Bū Shutsugen ka!?) first published in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on March 14, 1994. Here he is presented as an innocent looking pudgy pink genie-like creature. Later in the series, it is revealed that Buu's original appearance is that of a sleek, demonic-like child ("The Buu of Pure Evil"), however his nature and form had been altered after he'd assimilated the
Manon Batiste is the main character and heroine in Medal of Honor: Underground. She is also a minor character in Medal of Honor, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, and Medal of Honor: European Assault. As part of the French Resistance, she assists the original game's Jimmy Patterson and performs various dangerous missions. Her last name was changed from Batiste to Du Champs in Medal of Honor: European Assault. In European Assault, she is voiced by Olivia D'abo.
Batiste is based on French Resistance spy Hélène Deschamps Adams, a former member of the Office of Strategic Services and consultant for the game.
Soundtrack composer Michael Giacchino wanted two distinct but not "completely different" themes for Batiste. The resulting themes are a major tone that conveys "great national purpose", while a secondary theme "describes Manon's more intimate and emotional feelings". A third theme that "bookend"s the two major themes is meant to "represent the moments where Manon is called upon to steel her nerves and gather the courage to continue on with the fight".
Producer Scott Langteau offers that the developers "Manon used petrol bombs and also used her femininity to gain access to restricted
The March Hare (called Haigha in Through the Looking-Glass) is a character most famous for appearing in the tea party scene in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
The main character, Alice, hypothesises,
"Mad as a March hare" is a common British English phrase, both now and in Carroll's time, and appears in John Heywood's collection of proverbs published in 1546. It is reported in The Annotated Alice by Martin Gardner that this proverb is based on popular belief about hares' behavior at the beginning of the long breeding season, which lasts from February to September in Britain. Early in the season, unreceptive females often use their forelegs to repel overenthusiastic males. It used to be incorrectly believed that these bouts were between males fighting for breeding supremacy.
Like the character's friend, the Hatter, the March Hare feels compelled to always behave as though it is tea-time because the Hatter supposedly "murdered the time" whilst singing for the Queen of Hearts. Sir John Tenniel's illustration also shows him with straw on his head, a common way to depict madness in Victorian times. The March Hare later appears at the trial for the Knave of Hearts, and
Maria Robotnik (マリァ・ロボトニック, Maria Robotonikku) is a fictional character in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe.

While Professor Gerald's government-sponsored research aboard the Space Colony ARK was initially intended to attain an immortal being, Gerald took on the task to try and save his granddaughter, and named the project 'Project Shadow'. Trials of the test had been practiced on the Biolizard, which quickly became unstable and required a Life Support System to continue living. Later, when Shadow the Hedgehog was created, he and Maria became friends. Then the President called a halt to the experiments, due to suspicions of what Gerald was doing, since a mad robot known as Gizoid, who was originally researched by Gerald, went crazy and destroyed large portions of the ARK. The ARK was then stormed by GUN, Maria and Shadow
Marine the Raccoon is an excitable young resident of Southern Island, and Sonic and Tails' first ally when they are transported into the home dimension of Blaze the Cat. Her sole video game appearance to date is in Sonic Rush Adventure for the Nintendo DS, although she is not a playable character.

Her peculiar manner of speaking is dominated by stereotypical Australian slang. Her page on Sonic Channel indicates that she is unexpectedly a neat freak.
Mario (マリオ, Mario) is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise by Nintendo, created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Serving as Nintendo's mascot and the eponymous protagonist of the series, Mario has appeared in over 200 video games since his creation. Though originally only appearing in platform games, starting with Donkey Kong, Mario currently appears in varied video game genres such as racing, puzzle, party, role-playing, fighting and sports.
Mario is depicted as a short, pudgy, Italian plumber who resides in the Mushroom Kingdom. He repeatedly rescues Princess Peach from the turtle-like villain Bowser and stops his numerous plans to destroy him and take over the kingdom. Mario also has other enemies and rivals, including Donkey Kong and Wario. Since 1995, he has been voiced by Charles Martinet.
As Nintendo's mascot, Mario is said by many to be the most famous character in video game history. Mario games, as a whole, have sold more than 210 million units, making the Mario franchise the best-selling video game franchise of all time. Outside of the Super Mario platform series, he has appeared in video games of other genres, including the Mario Kart
Marshall Law (マーシャル・ロウ, Māsharu Rou) is a character in the Tekken fighting game series. The character is a homage to martial artist Bruce Lee and shares many characteristics with the famous martial artist, even uttering similar high-pitched shouts and whoops when he performs certain strikes and attacks. He has a son named Forest Law, who is also based on Bruce Lee, and his name is an obvious pun of martial law, which is military rule over a nation. He also appears in the game Urban Reign, along with his friend Paul Phoenix.
In his original appearance in Tekken, Marshall was an almost exact facsimile of Bruce Lee. However, by Tekken 4, a 21-year gap in the storyline produced a much older, mustached Marshall (he shaves his mustache in Tekken 6). This has not deterred the character from being a Bruce Lee homage, however. For example, in Tekken 4, he retains the yellow tracksuit which was worn by Lee in the film Game of Death. In Tekken 5, Law's second attire (his cook suit) can be turned into a close copy of the character Kato from The Green Hornet, a character which Bruce Lee portrayed. Also, upon close inspection, the chest scar on Marshall Law is very similar to the one received by
Marth (マルス, Marusu) is a character from Intelligent Systems's Fire Emblem series of video games. He is the central protagonist and Lord-class character of the original game Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, the third game, Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo, and the two remake games Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyū.
Although all Marth's Fire Emblem titles were released only in Japan until the release of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, he has acquired more widespread international attention through his recurring appearances in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series of fighting games. The appearance of Marth and Roy sparked a greater level of Western interest in the Fire Emblem series, and it was in part because of this that Nintendo began releasing the games internationally beginning with the seventh title in the series.
The design of Marth in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon differed from Super Smash Bros. Brawl due to the former's design being introduced to Smash Bros. developer Masahiro Sakurai after his design of Marth was introduced. The Shadow Dragon staff had differing opinions of the design, due to some feeling that the design
Mega Man, also spelled Megaman, known as Rockman (ロックマン, Rokkuman) in Japan, is a title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom. The character was introduced in 1987. Since then, he has become one of the company's primary original characters and continues to be one of the video game industry's most recognizable icons. Having appeared on many consoles since the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mega Man has had a wide gaming audience, and his games continue to evolve with the ever-changing hardware demands of modern gaming systems. Mega Man's fictional universe can be divided into seven categories, each featuring different variations and incarnations of a robot boy hero. Although "Mega Man", or "Rockman", is usually the name used to describe only the original Mega Man from the classic series, it can also be used less specifically to describe the Mega Man series of fictional works, or the group of adherently named main characters within.
The several spin-off series that have emerged over the past years, each one continuing the Mega Man mythos in some unique way, includes but isn't limited to the Mega Man X, Mega Man Legends, Mega Man Battle Network, and Mega Man

His first appearance was in the 1993 video game Kirby's Adventure. However, Meta Knight's name was not known in the U.S. until 1995, in the game Kirby's Avalanche. The character Meta Knight has been featured in other video games from Nintendo, on Nintendo's merchandising, on comic books, and on the Kirby anime series.
His mysterious nature has led to him playing more of a "friend or foe" role and less of an actual playable character throughout the Kirby series.
Meta Knight wields a powerful sword, and wears a blue cloak and light blue-silver mask. In some games, his mask is removed, revealing that he looks like Kirby, except that his body is blue (originally black), while his eyes and mouth are white. In one game only released in Japan, Kirby no Kirakira Kizzu, Meta Knight's gloves are also removed, revealing that he has no hands but stubby arms similar to Kirby's. There is a symbol on Meta Knight's left shoulder patch, the letter "M" with a sword behind it. It was first used as his symbol in Kirby Super Star and could be seen on the

In the series, Metal Sonic is an evil robotic duplicate of Sonic the Hedgehog, created by the series antagonist Dr. Robotnik. Metal Sonic was created by Kazuyuki Hoshino.
The first appearance of Metal Sonic was in Sonic the Hedgehog CD. He is considered the successor of the robot known as Silver Sonic, who originally made an appearance in both Sonic the Hedgehog 2 games. In this game, he is created and controlled by Dr. Eggman and is sent back in time to change the past so that Eggman can rule the future. Later, he kidnaps Amy Rose, who had been following Sonic. In Act III of the Stardust Speedway Zone, Eggman forces Sonic to race Metal Sonic in order to rescue Amy Rose. If the player managed to win the race, Metal Sonic would slam into the closing gate and explode. With his new creation smashed to pieces, Eggman would escape to the Metallic Madness Zone, allowing the player to rescue Amy.
Metal Sonic's second major appearance was in Knuckles' Chaotix, where he attempts to absorb the Chaos Rings' powers to wreak havoc in Newtrogic High Zone.

He is one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in the world and is the mascot of The Walt Disney Company, the world's largest media conglomerate in terms of annual revenue.
Mickey debuted in November 1928 in the animated cartoon Steamboat Willie after initially appearing in a test screening earlier that year. He went on to appear in over 130 films including The Band Concert (1935), Brave Little Tailor (1938), and Fantasia (1940). Mickey appeared primarily in short films, but also in a few feature-length films. Nine of Mickey's cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Beginning 1930, Mickey has also been featured extensively as a comic strip character. His self-titled newspaper strip, drawn primarily by Floyd Gottfredson, ran for 45 years. Mickey has also appeared in comic

is the mascot of the Game & Watch series, following his appearance in 2001 video game Super Smash Bros. Melee. Later, he appeared in Game & Watch Gallery 4 as the manager of the "classic games" area alongside Mario; he could talk in this game.
In his appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee, all of his Standard and specials are derived from Game & Watch games, including Oil Panic, Judge, Turtle Bridge and Spitball Sparky. His stage is called Superflat World: Flat Zone, set inside the screen of a Game & Watch unit, and includes elements from Manhole, Helmet and Oil Panic. The trophy for this stage recommends playing the stage in Special Melee's Fixed-Camera Mode for a true replication of the Game & Watch experience. Event 45 in Melee also plays tribute to the Game & Watch games in general by featuring a red Mr. Game & Watch fighting a team of Mr. Game & Watches in Flat Zone.

Naruto Uzumaki (うずまき ナルト, Uzumaki Naruto) is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The main protagonist and title character of the series, he is a young teenage ninja from the fictional village of Konohagakure. The villagers ostracize Naruto because of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox—a malevolent creature that attacked Konohagakure—sealed in his body. To be recognized, he aspires to become the village's leader, the Hokage. His cheerful and boisterous personality lets him befriend other Konohagakure ninja, as well as ninja from other villages. Naruto appears in the series' films and in other media related to the franchise, including video games and original video animations.
When creating Naruto in the initial part of the series, Kishimoto kept the character "simple and stupid", while giving him many attributes of an ideal hero. Kishimoto added a harsh past to give him a dark side. He has revised Naruto's initial design many times, providing the character with different clothes to appeal to Western audiences and make him easier to illustrate. Kishimoto changed his design for Part II of the storyline, which starts two-and-a-half years
Neville Longbottom is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter book series. He is described as a round-faced Gryffindor student in the central character Harry Potter's year. Throughout the series, Neville is often portrayed as a bumbling and disorganised character, and a rather mediocre student, though he is highly gifted at Herbology. However, the character's personality appears to undergo a transition after he joins Dumbledore's Army in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The encouragement he receives gives him confidence in his magical abilities, turning him into a more competent wizard.
Although a secondary character in the first four books, Neville appears often in the role of comic relief. He is one of Harry's strongest supporters over the course of the series, and becomes close friends with Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Luna as well. As stated by Rowling, the fifth Harry Potter book "was a real turning point for Neville", due to the bigger role he played in that book. She further hinted that Neville was about to play a significant part in the two final books and the fight against Lord Voldemort.
Rowling revealed in an interview that "there's a lot of Neville
Nights (trademarked as NiGHTS) is a video game character from the games Nights into Dreams... and Nights: Journey of Dreams, developed and published by Sega. Nights is a "Nightmaren" who resides in Nightopia, a dream world where the dreams of all human beings are acted out every night. The character wears a purple jester-style hat and outfit, with a diamond-shaped red jewel on the chest. (In the Archie comics, this was said to be a piece of a red ideya that broke off and latched onto their chest).
Nights' first appearance was in the video game Nights into Dreams... for the Sega Saturn. The second game in the series, Nights: Journey of Dreams, is for the Wii. Nights also appeared in the sampler game Christmas Nights for the Sega Saturn. Nights has a role in Sega Superstars Tennis as well. Takashi Iizuka reported that he is very interested in making Nights 3, but that will be up to the management at Sega to decide. Nights has a large fan base to this day.
Nights has appeared in numerous other games besides the series, including Sonic Adventure (in the Casinopolis level), Sonic Adventure 2 (in the City Escape and Radical Highway levels), Shadow the Hedgehog (in Lethal highway, the
This is a list of characters in the Crash Bandicoot video game series. Crash Bandicoot is a series of platform video games published by Activision. The series was formerly developed by Naughty Dog from 1996 to 1999, and by Traveller's Tales, Eurocom and Vicarious Visions from 2000 to 2004. The series features a large cast of distinctively quirky characters designed by numerous different artists, the most notable of which include Charles Zembillas and Joe Pearson. In addition, it features an all-star cast of veteran voice actors.
The series centers around the conflicts between a mutated bandicoot named Crash Bandicoot and his creator, Doctor Neo Cortex. Crash acts as the main playable character of the series, though other characters have had occasional player access, most notable Coco Bandicoot and Doctor Neo Cortex. Out of the numerous characters in the series (numbering over sixty), only a few have significantly contributed to the story of the series.
Aku Aku is the guardian of the Wumpa Islands and the father figure of Crash and his friends. He is voiced by Mel Winkler in his English speaking appearances up to Crash Twinsanity, and by Greg Eagles in Crash of the Titans and Crash:
Noob Saibot is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He debuted as a hidden character in Mortal Kombat II, although the later game Mortal Kombat: Deception established his true identity as the original Sub-Zero, who was killed by his nemesis, Scorpion, after the events in the first Mortal Kombat. The character's name comes from the last names of the creators of the Mortal Kombat franchise, Ed Boon and John Tobias, spelled in reverse.
During his first appearances, Noob Saibot's design was focused around an all-black exterior, with the staff stating "that's what he's all about". They found difficulties in making some versions, without him appearing to look into bondage. For Mortal Kombat: Deception, Noob Saibot was the first character drawn and designed by Steve Beran. Beran attempted to make him a more-distinctive character, focusing less on his all-black exterior. One design was removed due to its similarities with a tuxedo. Another wore a hood, but the idea was later moved to the new character Havik. An early alternate outfit depicted Noob Saibot in a black, red and blue outift with a Japanese translation of "darkness" on the front flap. He was also
Tanner is a fictional character and protagonist in the Driver video game series. He appears in (as the protagonist and playable character) Driver, Driver 2, and Driv3r.
Tanner first appeared in Driver: You Are the Wheelman, which takes place in the 1970s. Back then, he was working as a NYPD detective. Tanner was put undercover due to his remarkable driving skills (he was a race car driver) and was ordered to bring down a syndicate headed by a kingpin named Castaldi. By the end of the mission, he is put to the task to kill the President; but Tanner refuses and foils the entire operation, eventually bringing down Castaldi. The storyline was based in Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City.
In Driver 2, Tanner and his new partner, Detective Tobias Jones, are put with the Chicago Police Department to find a man named Pink Lenny (who was nearly killed by two hitmen at a bar). Solomon Caine (a gangster with an empire stretching from Chicago to Las Vegas) is revealed to be the one who wants Lenny captured. Lenny is said to have been an accountant for Solomon Caine, but screwed him over and started working for his rival gangster Alvaro Vasquez, who is never identified.
This cantankerous wind-up toy is full of useful hints and information, but is usually relegated to menu screens where he offers tutorials for novice players. He can't stand being snuggled and has a habit of finishing every sentence with the nonsense particle "chao." (His name is a portmanteau of "omocha", Japanese for toy, and Chao.)
Onslaught is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in X-Man #15 (May 1996), and was co-created by writers Joel Escolano, Scott Lobdell, Mark Waid, and artist Andy Kubert.
The character of Onslaught has also been featured in video games and toy merchandise.
The character is first alluded to when a shadowy figure with Onslaught's distinctive word-balloon coloring and design is seen speaking with a frightened Mystique. "Onslaught" is first mentioned when the Juggernaut crashlands in Hoboken, New Jersey, having been hit hard enough by Onslaught to send him across the country. The character fully appears when it communicates with Jean Grey on the astral plane. Onslaught then imprisons Juggernaut within the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak and defeats the X-Men.
Onslaught is a psionic entity, revealed to have been created from the soul of Professor X and Magneto, when the dark part of Magneto's soul leapt into its counterpart in Xavier's soul. This took place when Xavier wiped Magneto's mind at the conclusion of the Fatal Attractions storyline, after Magneto tore the adamantium out of Wolverine's body. Wolverine's healing factor
Alternate meanings: Oolong (disambiguation)Oolong (or as he might prefer, Oolong the Terrible) is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z manga and the Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z anime series. He is loosely based on the character Zhu Bajie from the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. His first appearance was in chapter #5 of the manga. He plays a large role in the beginning of Dragon Ball, but by the end of Dragon Ball Z, he just shows up from time to time. Oolong has the distinction of being the first "villain" character converted over the course of the series. His favorite hobby is collecting women's underwear. He is known as Mao Mao in an early 1980's dub of Dragon Ball. His seiyￅﾫ is Naoki Tatsuta. In the English dub he is voiced by Brad Jackson.
Oolong is a shapeshifting pig, although he was expelled from shapeshifting training for stealing the teacher's underwear and lacks the ability to change his form for more than five minutes at a time without a break. (Dragon Ball's other shapeshifter, Puar, completed the training and does not have this limitation.) With his shapeshifting, Oolong can look like anything at all.
Oolong's normal form is of a
Opa-Opa is the main character from the bizarre Fantasy Zone series of video games created by Sega. It is best described as a small red and green spaceship shaped like an egg placed sideways, equipped with a pair of small wings and legs, twin laser cannons and an infinite supply of small bombs. It should also be noted that Opa-Opa also has a small jet booster located on its rear, however in most cases it is either hidden by the wings or simply not visible.
Apart from its weaponry and appearance, however, Opa-Opa is quite an enigma. It does not appear to have any specific gender, nor does it have any distinguishing features showing it's age, although a recurring theme in the games is having a large ship similar to Opa-Opa as the final boss. This might indicate that the ships increase in size with age. It can be assumed that they can breed, since Opa-Opa's father, O-papa, is in almost every installment of the series (excluding Fantasy Zone Gear, for the Sega Game Gear).
One mystery is whether Opa-Opa has a pilot, or if it is indeed a sentient life form. The introduction of Fantasy Zone 2: The Tears of Opa-Opa shows Opa-Opa in a comical and animated fashion, using one of its wings
Pachacamac was the last chieftain of the ancient Knuckles tribe. Under his leadership, the tribe rapidly evolved from a small band of ruffians into a large, powerful civilization, but his belligerent politics ultimately lead to the tribe's downfall.
Parvati Patil was a witch, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patil, and the identical twin sister of Padma. She was also a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, while Padma was a Ravenclaw. Parvati became best friends with Lavender Brown, with whom she shared many interests, such as a love for Divination. Parvati attended the Yule Ball with Harry Potter in 1994, and a year later she joined Dumbledore's Army, an organisation founded and led by Harry. During her seventh year, she continued her studies at Hogwarts, when it was under the control of Lord Voldemort. Parvati fought at the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998 against Voldemort.
Peter Rabbit is a fictional anthropomorphic character in various children's stories by Beatrix Potter. He first appeared in The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1902, and subsequently in five more books between 1904 and 1912. Spinoff merchandise includes dishes, wallpaper, and dolls. He appears as a character in the 1971 ballet film, The Tales of Beatrix Potter, in the animated BBC anthology series, The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends, and the upcoming 2012 animated Nickelodeon TV series.
The rabbits in Potter's stories are anthropomorphic and wear human clothes; Peter wears a jacket and shoes. Peter, his mother, Mrs. Josephine Rabbit, and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail live in a rabbit hole that has a human kitchen, human furniture, and a shop where Mrs. Rabbit sells various items. Peter's relatives are Cousin Benjamin Bunny and Benjamin's father Mr. Benjamin Bunny.
Peter Rabbit was named after a pet rabbit Beatrix Potter had as a child called Peter Piper. The first Peter Rabbit story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was originally created in 1893 as a letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of Potter's former governess, Annie Moore. The boy was ill, and Potter wrote him a
is a fictional character in the Mario series, first appearing as the primary boss of Bianco Hills in Super Mario Sunshine. He has appeared as a boss in later games as well such as in Super Princess Peach and New Super Mario Bros., but also as a playable character in spin-off Mario games like Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Superstar Baseball.
In Japan, Petey Piranha is known as Bosu Pakkun, which translates into King Piranha. This brings to the question Petey's status in the Piranha Plant hierarchy. Although Petey has powers beyond that of a regular Piranha Plant, similar to King Boo, he doesn't seem to have any powers over them. Unlike Boos, undead creatures which specialise in Black Boo Magic, Petey and the other Piranha Plants rely almost entirely on their physical abilities and their abilities to spit fireballs. In theory, King Boo's magic can be reinforced with the power of other Boos and he is capable of reinforcing their powers too, whereas Petey's physical strength is not necessarily boosted through the use of any magical ability. In fact, Petey is easily the most physically strong being in the Mushroom Kingdom, being stronger than even
Pichu (ピチュー, Pichū) is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Pichu first appeared in the video games Pokémon Gold and Silver and subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise. There have been multiple voice actors for Pichu. The two Pichu Brothers characters were voiced by Yumi Tōma and Satomi Kōrogi (who voiced Pichu in Super Smash Bros. Melee), while a spiky-eared Pichu from the film Arceus and the Jewel of Life was voiced by Shōko Nakagawa.
Known as the "Tiny Mouse" species of the Pokémon series, Pichu is the pre-evolved version of Pikachu. Pichu made its debut appearance in Pokémon Gold and Silver and has since made appearances in the series. Ever since its introduction to the series, Pichu was seen as a sidekick like character towards Pikachu, being often seen in the spinnoff games alongside it in games like Pokémon Pinball. The Pokémon has been featured in Super Smash Bros. Melee where it was a playable character.
In an interview, Junichi Masuda noted that he and Ken Sugimori wanted to create a Pokémon to be the "next" Pikachu, but were
Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ, Hepburn: Pikachū) /ˈpiːkəˌtʃuː/ is one of the species of Pokémon creatures from the Pokémon media franchise—a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards, and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. As do all Pokémon, Pikachu fight other Pokémon in battles central to the anime, manga, and games of the series. Pikachu is among the most recognizable Pokémon, largely because a Pikachu is a central character in the Pokémon anime series. Pikachu is widely considered the most popular Pokémon, is regarded as the official mascot of the Pokémon franchise, and has become an icon of Japanese culture in recent years.
Pikachu evolves from a Pichu when it levels up with high happiness, and evolves into a Raichu with a "Thunderstone". Within the world of the Pokémon franchise, Pikachu are often found in houses, forests, plains, and occasionally near mountains, islands, and electrical sources (such as power plants), on most continents throughout the fictional world. As an Electric-type Pokémon, Pikachu can store electricity in its cheeks and release it in lightning-based attacks. Its Pokedex entry states that it is a Mouse Pokemon.

Pooka is the name Anastasia gives her furry little guardian angel when he helps her decide which road to take at the crossroads of her life. He protects his mistress and guards her with a passion against the dangers of Rasputin and takes an immediate liking to Vladimir.
Pooka is not voiced by any live actor. Instead, Fox decided to record 16 different dogs and edit each bark to create an authentic "voice" for the puppy.
The President of the United Federation is a prominent human leader in Sonic's world. As chief executive officer of the United Federation, his position seems roughly analogous to the real-life President of the United States. Ex officio the President is often the target of villains' assassination attempts or demands for surrender. When not being threatened or shot at, the President takes a close interest in the activities of G.U.N.'s network of secret agents. He personally briefs Rouge the Bat on the Emerl case at the start of her episode in Sonic Battle, and it is a "special request from the President" (as asserted during gameplay in White Acropolis) that leads to Shadow the Hedgehog's initial involvement in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).
Princess Daisy is the princess of Sarasaland, who first appeared in the game Super Mario Land. She was created by Gunpei Yokoi, Shigeru Miyamoto's mentor. Although Daisy is the ruler of Sarasaland, her current place of residence is in the Mushroom Kingdom. Daisy is known to be a tomboy, a fact first stated in her debut appearance. Daisy is represented by colors like yellow, orange and green. She has an affinity for flowers; her attire, special abilities, personal emblems and general representations are often flowers. Years after her initial appearance, Daisy started appearing in more and more Mario games. This was due to the lack of human characters in the series. She now appears in the majority of Mario games, most often as a playable character. Daisy is good friends with Princess Peach, and she interacts positively with many other characters. This includes Luigi, who it has been hinted shares romantic feelings with Daisy. Daisy has appeared in over thirty Mario Series games to date, and continues to do so regularly.
Princess Elise is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series of games, making her first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006 game).
Elise is the princess of Soleanna, the City of Water, and is the protector of a dark secret known as the 'Flames of Disaster'. She is befriended by Sonic the Hedgehog shortly before the villainous Doctor Eggman kidnaps her to try and claim the power she protects for his own evil schemes.Elise has a `dark past` but once she met Sonic she became more open.
Princess Peach Toadstool (ピーチ姫, Pīchi-hime) is a character in Nintendo's Mario franchise. Originally created by Shigeru Miyamoto, Peach is the Princess of the fictional Mushroom Kingdom, which is constantly under attack by Bowser, and often plays the damsel in distress role within the series and is the lead female. She is often portrayed as Mario's love interest and has appeared in nearly all the Mario games to date; with the most notable being in Super Princess Peach where she is the main protagonist.
Princess Peach's initial appearance was drawn by Shigeru Miyamoto. Miyamoto later asked Yōichi Kotabe to redraw Peach with his instructions. He had asked Kotabe to draw her eyes to be "a little cat-like" and that she should look "stubborn, but cute". With Kotabe's influence, Princess Peach changed considerably throughout her gaming system. Peach was not a playable character in New Super Mario Bros. Wii because it would require special programming on how the game handles her dress, however, she is the main protagonist in Super Princess Peach and is a playable character in most Mario spin-offs such as Mario Party, Mario Kart and also sports games.
Princess Peach has long, golden blonde
Princess Zelda (ゼルダ姫, Zeruda-hime) is the name of a fictional character in The Legend of Zelda series of video games by Nintendo. The name has applied to many female members of Hyrule's royal family, which includes several distinct characters in Hyrule legend.
Though she is the eponymous character, the player controls the protagonist, Link. Similar to the Mario-rescues-Peach story in Nintendo's Super Mario game series, Zelda is usually kidnapped or imprisoned by Ganon (Ganondorf), though Zelda usually plays a more prominent role in the story than Peach, oftentimes aiding Link either directly or indirectly in his quest against Ganondorf. In some games, she appears as one of the sages. In others, she displays other magical powers.
Creator Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that her name was inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald. Ben Reeves of Game Informer explained that the "name Zelda (alternately Selda or Segula) might not be used much anymore, but this old Yiddish name means "blessed, happy, or lucky."
During the development of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, illustrator Yusuke Nakano tried to portray Zelda “as if she’s wondering about
Professor Filius Flitwick (born October 17, year unknown) is a fictional character in the Harry Potter books. His character provides some comic relief in the books. He generally plays small parts in the plot events of the stories. Probably his most significant role is to introduce various spells into the story.
Flitwick is the Charms Master at Hogwarts and the Head of Ravenclaw House. His squeaky voice matches his tiny stature; he stands on a stack of books in order to see over the top of his desk and sits on a pile of cushions at the staff table.
Flitwick's teaching style seems to be rather laid back in comparison to other professors and he is generally well-liked by students. He has allowed his class to play games during the last class before the Christmas holidays and seems resigned to a fair amount of chaos as students practice new Charms. He is often hit by misaimed or bad spells, often flying around the room or growing boils. Some of the spells he teaches include a levitation charm -Wingardium Leviosa-, Cheering Charms, Summoning Charms, the Banishing Charm, and the Silencing Charm. The Charms classroom is on the third floor of the school , but Flitwick's office is on
Ralf Jones (ラルフ・ジョーンズ, Rarufu Jōnzu) is a video game character created by SNK Playmore (formerly SNK). Ralf has made appearance in several games from the company, premiering in TNK III as a military tank driver. The Ikari Warriors series also emphasized Ralf's role as a soldier with him becoming the partner of Clark Still. Both Ralf and Clark would also become recurring characters in The King of Fighters fighting games series in which they appear as part of the Ikari Team participating in various tournaments also while searching for various criminals. Additionally, Ralf and Clark have appeared in few games from the Metal Slug series, also developed by SNK. Ralf Jones has been voiced by Monster Maezuka from his debut, who also voices Kyoshiro Senryo, Choi Bounge and Benimaru Nikaido.
Since his appearance in Ikari Warriors Ralf was meant to be a soldier, and the SNK staff were highly inspired by the film series, Rambo. With the start of The King of Fighters, developers were focused in redesigning Ralf's character so that he would be very different from Clark, whom he shared several similarities. Ralf has been highly popular with gamers, having appeared in several popularity polls
Ratchet is the name of several characters in the Transformers universes. According to the original creator of the Transformers names, Bob Budiansky, Ratchet was named after the character of Nurse Ratched from the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The name Ratchet is almost always portrayed as an Autobot medic who turns into an ambulance. Ratchet is sometimes referred to by the trademarked names "Autobot Ratchet" or "Rescue Ratchet."
Ratchet (Mécano in Québec, Racsni in Hungary, Храповик in Russia and Doc in Italy) is the chief medic of the Autobots in the Transformers television and comic series based on the popular toyline produced by Takara and Hasbro. His vehicle mode is an ambulance. Named after Nurse Ratched by writer Bob Budiansky, who originally intended the character to be female, an idea rejected by Hasbro. Ratchet is well-remembered by fans of the original comic series, in which he played a major role.
Ratchet would transform into an ambulance (cargo van type) and was colored white with red stripes and emergency lights. Ratchet had two robot modes, though only one was usually seen in the comic run and the television cartoon. The Ratchet toy transformed into the second

Rikimaru (力丸) is a fictional character in the Tenchu video game series. He is featured in every game in the series, including as a player character in most of them. The character's critical reception was mostly positive as one of the more realistic ninja characters in video gaming and one of the earliest stealth game heroes.
Rikimaru was originally motion capture-portrayed by Sho Kosugi, a Japanese actor made famous by starring in a series of American ninja films in the early 1980s, whose son Kane Kosugi portrayed Rikimaru's nemesis Onikage. Compared to his partner Ayame, Rikimaru's design did not change much through the series, with exception of the first sequel which featured the younger version of him and with no scar.
Rikimaru is the current head of the Azuma Shinobi ninja clan and the series' primary protagonist. His master and predecessor as head of the clan was Shiunsai, who was killed by another member of the clan, Tatsumaru. Dedicated, honourable and withdrawn, Rikimaru is prepared to sacrifice his own life without hesitation, something he does at the end of Tenchu: Stealth Assassins only to reappear in Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. His ability to retain his composure and sense
Rogue is a fictional character in most of the Marvel Comics award-winning X-Men related titles. She was created by author Chris Claremont and artist Michael Golden, and debuted in Avengers Annual #10 (November 1981) as a villain. An earlier story, intended for Ms. Marvel #25 (June 1979) went unpublished until 1992. Rogue was born as a mutant. More so than most, Rogue considers her powers a curse: she involuntarily absorbs and sometimes also removes the memories, physical strength, and (in the case of superpowered persons) the special and unique abilities of anyone she touches. For most of her life, this potentially fatal ability prevented her from making any physical contact with others, including her on-off romantic love interest, Gambit, but after many years Rogue finally gained full control over her mutant ability.
Hailing from Caldecott, Mississippi (a fictional county), Rogue is the X-Men's self-described southern belle. A runaway, she was adopted by Mystique of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and grew up as a villain. After Rogue permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's psyche and Kree powers, she reformed and turned to the X-Men, fearing for her sanity. Writer Chris Claremont
Roll is a female video game character in the Mega Man Classic series in its many continuities, and is largely considered to be the female lead in many of them. Not much is known about Roll compared to the other characters, except she was designed for housekeeping instead of fighting, and she is the (seemingly) younger sister of Mega Man (although other sources indicate they are "twins").
The best-known version of Roll is from the classic series. There, she is the gentle cutish "little sister" (though they have no biological relation, they are considered siblings as they were created together) of Mega Man, a little blonde girl wearing a red dress, a ponytail with green ribbon and red Mary Janes. She is the third robot created by Dr. Light, built as his assistant, mainly in housework.
Roll first appears very briefly during the ending of the very first game of the series. Because so, her name was never mentioned until Mega Man 3, where her entry in Dr. Light's robot list is shown during the ending.
Roll's design changed in Mega Man 8, with a more detailed dress and boots, as well as green ribbons in her hair. Her hairstyle also changed slightly, and she's a fair bit taller as
Ronald Bilius "Ron" Weasley is a fictional character and one of the three protagonists (the other two being Harry Potter and Hermione Granger) of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. His first appearance was in the first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the best friend of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger. He is a member of the Weasley family, a pure blood family, who reside in "The Burrow" outside Ottery St. Catchpole. Along with Harry and Hermione, he is a member of the Gryffindor house. Ron is present in most of the action throughout the series due to his friendship with Harry.
According to J. K. Rowling, Ron was among the characters she created "the very first day". Ron is inspired by Rowling's best friend Sean Harris (to whom Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is dedicated), but she has clearly stated that she "never set out to describe Sean in Ron, but Ron has a Sean-ish turn of phrase." Like Harris is to Rowling, Ron is "always there" when Harry needs him. The character of Ron fits many of the stereotypes expected of the sidekick; he is often used as comic relief, is loyal to the hero, and lacks much of the talent Harry possesses, at least
Rouge the Bat (ルージュ・ザ・バット, Rūju za Batto) is a video game character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. She is a well-determined treasure hunter and part-time government agent who plans to make all the gems and treasures of the world hers.

Her boots also have pink heart-shapes over the toes that are used for digging. In Sonic Heroes and the two Sonic Riders games, she wears different outfits, but often with similar color schemes and heart-shaped details. She also has an unlockable costume in Sonic Adventure 2.

Roy (￣ﾃﾭ￣ﾂﾤ Roi) is a fictional swordfighter from the Fire Emblem series of video game. He is a protagonist in Fire Emblem 6: The Sword of Seals (Fￅﾫin no Tsurugi in Japan) and makes a brief cameo in Fire Emblem 7: The Blazing Sword. His father is Eliwood, the protagonist of Fire Emblem 7: Blazing Sword, the first Fire Emblem game to be released outside Japan as the Game Boy Advance game Fire Emblem in the U.S.
Roy's deceased mother is never mentioned in name during Fuuin no Tsurugi. She is deliberately left ambiguous as Eliwood has three potential wives depending on which supports he gains in Rekka no Ken.

He reaches his secondary class very late in the game, with only four chapters left to go. His promotion to the Master Lord class is triggered, story-wise, by him inserting the Fire Emblem into the hilt and thereby unlocking the Sword of Seals from Shrine of Seals in Bern, then subsequently drawing the blade.

Tomoe, who additionally created the "struck" movements for many other characters in the game, noted particular fondness for Sophitia while designing her.
During her creation, designers focused on maintaining an innocent appearance for her face, to give the character a sense of feeling fresh and young. Freedom of

Stafy is 7 years old and is 36cm (14.2in; 1ft, 2.2in) tall. He also has a sister named Stapy.
Stafy is also good friends with Kyorosuke and often plays with him.
Stafy is relatively easy-going, friendly character to get along with; a similarity to Kirby.
Stafy, in actuality, might be a star, not a starfish. He, along with his family, live up in the clouds, which is where one would most likely find a star. When he fell into sea, most people just assumed he was a starfish because of his shape.
Stafy is usually at the receiving end of much physical humor that is seen throughout his games. For example, in Densetsu no Stafy 3, he, at one point gets buried alive by debris, and the player controls Stapy to try and dig him out. Both Stapy and Kyorosuke cry because they're worried about Stafy. Once all the debris is cleared, it was revealed that Stafy was sound asleep the entire time.
Stafy can speak, but is often portrayed as being able to say "Fee!" in the television commercials. He doesn't

Storm has a bigger role in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, and has more stages in story mode than he did in the previous game. He took it upon himself to chase down Amy Rose in order to take the Ark of Cosmos from her. Storm is played by Dan Green, who notably also plays Knuckles, in English and Kenji Nomura in Japanese.

A citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom, Toad is one of Princess Peach's most loyal attendants and is constantly working on her behalf. He is usually seen as a non-player character (NPC) who provides assistance to Mario and his friends in most games, but there are times when Toad takes center stage and appears as the protagonist, as seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 and Wario's Woods.
Starting with Super Mario Sunshine, a newly introduced character known as Toadsworth was introduced as Peach's steward, thus replacing Toad's original role as a helper for various Nintendo Gamecube Mario titles released (causing Toad's roles in these games to diminish). However, Toad later received various other roles (including that of being the captain of the Toad Brigade association in Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel) that allowed him to take a more active role within the later Mario games.

Tyrant is the code name of a series of boss characters in the Resident Evil horror video game series by Capcom, introduced in Resident Evil in 1996.
Tyrants are biologically engineered undead supersoldiers created and used by the sinister Umbrella Corporation. The Tyrant creatures make appearances as boss characters in most of Resident Evil games and the desire to create an obedient bioweapon lies at the core of the series' storyline. Tyrants also appear in other media and mechandise of the Resident Evil franchise. A notable Tyrant is Nemesis, the titular character of the video game Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.
Since their debut, the Tyrant series became the most recognisable and popular creatures of the franchise and even gaming in general.
The game series features many types of Tyrants as the result of several different experiments. Following the discovery of the Progenitor virus, the Umbrella Corporation’s founders become eager to create a Bio-Organic Weapon (BOW) that is both powerful and capable of following orders. Prior to the events of Resident Evil Zero, Umbrella used the Progenitor virus to create the Tyrant virus (T-virus), which they believe can be used to manufacture
Ulala (うらら Urara) is a video game character and the main protagonist of the video game series Space Channel 5. When Ulala was 12 years old, she was involved in a spaceship accident in which she was rescued by a reporter from a broadcasting station called Space Channel 5. This event inspired Ulala to not only become a reporter for the little-watched broadcasting station, but also to strive to become the best reporter in the galaxy. She has rivalry with Pudding and has an evil twin robotic counterpart named Evila.
It has been thought by some that her name is a pun on the French expression "Ooh la la". However, this has not been confirmed. Additionally, "Urara" is a female given name in Japan (although "Ulala" is the official romanized spelling of this character's name). "Urara" may also be a play on the Japanese adjective 麗らか (うららか uraraka) meaning "beautiful", "fine", or "glorious".
At the start of the game, Ulala is now 22 years old and has been working as a rookie reporter for Channel 5 Studios for two years. An alien race called Morolians arrived to Earth and began to attack civilians with a special ray gun, forcing all those who come in contact with the gun beam to dance

Vanilla is unnamed in the games, referred to only as "Ma'am" by other characters and "Mama/Mother" by Cream. Sonic X was was the first source to name her "Vanilla." However, the Cream the Rabbit profile of Sonic Channel, an official Sonic website, also mentions that her name is Vanilla, making the name "canon" to the games.
Since Cream and Vanilla never mention a father/husband, it is safe to assume Vanilla is widowed/divorced/single.
In Sonic Advance 2, Vanilla and Cream were kidnapped by Doctor Eggman and separated. Cream was rescued by Sonic, and Cream then rescued Vanilla. At the end of the game, Doctor Eggman kidnaps Vanilla again and this time she is rescued by Super Sonic.

He is known to act very goofy and childish at times. According to the Japanese manual of Chaotix, he is quite a religious person. It states that his original purpose for traveling to the new island (known as "Carnival Island" in the western version) was that he interpreted the islands sudden appearance from out of nowhere as a miracle from God.
Vector is known to be quite powerful, as he was the power team member in Sonic Heroes. He also has super speed, as seen in Chaotix. Vector can use bubbles blown up

As a result it was renamed Venusaur, which IGN wrote is a combination of "venus" from the plant venus flytrap and "saur" from dinosaur.
Venusaur, known as the Seed Pokémon, is the final stage in Bulbasaur evolution. The seed

Vortigaunts are a fictional extra-dimensional species in the Half-Life series by Valve Corporation. In Half-Life and its three expansions, Vortigaunts are frequently encountered by the player as hostile non-player characters. The Vortigaunts are depicted in Half-Life as being an enslaved race in an alternate dimension called Xen, subservient to a large Xen God called the Nihilanth, which itself is a slave to undisclosed masters.

Wally B. Feed, usually referred as Wally, is a fictional character in the Monkey Island series of computer adventure games by LucasArts. Wally is a short, red-haired and meek character, who acts as a sidekick for the protagonist of the Monkey Island games, Guybrush Threepwood. Although he only appears in two games, Wally rather undeservingly bears a good deal of abuse in each. Apparently even the developers occasionally felt sorry for Wally (they cut a scene from LeChuck's Revenge where Wally is on a raft and accidentally drops his monocle overboard. While attempting to retrieve it, Wally falls off the raft entirely.)
It is unknown what the B. in his name stands for; it apparently exists only to make his name sound like "Wallaby Feed". His full name is only mentioned when he introduces himself in Monkey Island 2. Despite being otherwise very polite, even Wally gets Guybrush's name wrong. He does not mangle the name as severely as other characters, occasionally calling him "Mr. Wood" or "Mr. Brush".
Wally's voice in The Curse of Monkey Island is provided by Neil Ross.
In Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, Guybrush Threepwood first meets Wally on Scabb Island. Wally is a

Born James Howlett and commonly known as Logan, Wolverine is a mutant who possesses animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities, three retracting bone claws on each hand and a healing factor that allows him to recover from virtually any wound, disease or toxin, at an accelerated rate.

Zelda Spellman is a character featured in the Archie comic book Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Zelda is a full witch (as opposed to half or fully mortal) who lives in the fictional town of Greendale (in the 1990s live-action sitcom, Zelda lives in fictional Westbridge, Massachusetts). Zelda lives with her niece Sabrina Spellman, sister Hilda Spellman, and the family cat Salem, a former warlock turned into a cat as punishment for his attempt at world domination.
Aunt Zelda first appeared in Archie's Mad House #65 (December 1968). In the original comics, Zelda was short and stout with green hair. Unlike her temperamental sister Hilda, Zelda's personality was helpful and good-natured.
Starting in the late 1990s, Zelda (and Hilda)'s appearances and personalities were revamped to make her more contemporary (as well as match the live-action sitcom's take on the character). In modern stories, Zelda has her trademark green hair, but appears to be only physically a few years older than Sabrina and dresses in modern fashions.
In the sitcom, Zelda was blonde and a down-to-earth scientist who tries to keep Sabrina and Hilda out of trouble. As a stark contrast to early comic portrayals, she insists
