Characters You Wish Were In FGs But Probably Never Will Be

Many of us have dreams of driving various characters in a fighting game. Some of these are quite unlikely to come into fruition. That said, there’s nothing wrong with flexing the imagination a bit!

What characters (or people) to YOU wish were in fighting games, but are unlikely to ever be in one?

Here’s a few off of my personal wish-list:

  • Wicked Witch of the West
  • Tien (Ong Bak 2)
  • Maynard James Keenan
  • Ip Man
  • The Maxx
  • Chef Martin Yan
  • Techno Viking

Looking forward to hearing yours!

NOTE: This is not a thread where we tell each other how terrible our ideas are.
ADDITIONALLY: This is not a thread about KI Guest Characters.

After seeing how Zombie turned him into a maladjusted hulking brute in the remake, I can totally get behind this. That scene in the bathroom… so brutal!

It only seems natural, right?

That would be amazing, haha!

The doof warrior

You won’t have better rocker then him


Dude’s amazing. Looks like he belongs in Rammestein!

Some of these are actors rather than characters, but only because the actors tend towards a certain kind of role.
-Liam Neeson
-Bruce Lee
-Tony the Tiger
-Johnny Cash
-Drizzt Do’Urden
-Spike Speagal (Cowboy Bebop)
-Any major historical figure/world leader
-Bill Nye
-Glen Danzig


Count me in! Can we add Hank Sr.?

This was a really common “make your own” character in Soul Calibur 4. But of course she had to fight with someone’s existing weapon.

Very cool thread. I’ve never really thought about it that much, and I’m not that creative.

I’d really like to see a revival of Samurai Showdown or Soul Calibur that actually pays attention to weapon fighting mechanics. It could include historical knights and samurai etc. King Arthur, Lancelot, etc.

A gen 1 transformers fighter would be cool. Take the awesome models from Platinum’s devastation and work them into a 2d fighter. Tough to design anything with the transformation mechanic, but that’s for other people to sort out.

I’d also like to see a more serious “King of the Monsters” type game with Godzilla, King Kong, etc. not the sort of wrestling style destroy the city things we’ve seen in the past.


Oh word? That’s awesome! I’ve never been into 3d fighters so this passed right by me! Glad to know some people see the potential there. Flying Monkey projectiles FTW.

My wife’s list:

  • Pinhead (Hellraiser)
  • Toxic Avenger
  • Rain, Thunder & Lightning (Big Trouble in Little China) (though this thunder has arguably been stolen by Mortal Kombat)
  • Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen’s incarnation) (with Wendigo form in tow)
  • Talec (I Come in Peace)
  • Regan (The Exorcist)
  • Jiangshi
  • Grigori Rasputin
  • Karl Ruprecht Kroenen (Hellboy)
  • Gary Busey
  • Buckaroo Bonzai
  • Jackal and/or Juggernaut (Thirteen Ghosts)
  • Nekron 99 (Wizards)
  • Danger Mouse

My face when I saw him in the movie for the first time… no meme could describe it. On top of thatI I never saw him in the trailer… it was glorious…

Also what’s Rammestein? I feel like i’m missing out on something…

Rock/Metal Celebrity Death Match!
Danzig would obviously be the Thunder style character.
Dave Mustaine could use his fiery hair to throw fireballs
Abath could be Sub Zero or Glacius.
We could throw in Lars Ulrich as the bottom tier Dan Ibuki.


lol. lars as bottom tier, love it.


Oh man… we could run for miles with that concept, haha!
