Top 5 Funniest Video Game Characters!


5. Captain Qwark (Ratchet and Clank series)
Sure, Captain Qwark AKA Steve McQwark AKA Florana Tree Beast AKA Nurse Shanoon AKA etc is a selfish coward who takes credit for things he hasn't done, but his stupidness and random events is what makes him funny! He just messes up so much, even though he's the Galaxy's Greatest Superhero,but at least he TRIES to help! Anyway, he's just so funny because anything can happen with him, but my favorite moment of his is when he tries to brief the a mission in A Crack In Time, but he just shows picture of the Maktar Resort Single Mingle!

4. Wheatley (Portal 2)

Voiced by the excellent Steven Merchant, Wheatley's british accent makes everything he says 10 times funnier, and the fact that he's so damn smart, coupled with the fact that he delivers some of the funniest one liners known to man, makes him one of my favorite video game characters ever! Bringing comic relief to the table in a game that is darker than it seems is Wheatley's job, and he makes fine work of it. My favorite Wheatley quote is where he says "This is the part where I kill you!" and then it comes up with Chapter 9: The Part Where He Kills You.

3. Sgt Johnson (Halo series)
Eh, that picture's close enough. Anyways, Sgt Johnson is my favorite character of the Halo series, simply because he isn't just some one dimensional Drill Sergeant, but a Sergeant with humor and pizazz. From the moment where he advertised Halo: Combat Evolved in the demo, to his tender moments with the Covenant when you finish the campaign on Legendary, Johnson makes playing the game worthwhile in a mostly humorless game.

2. Ratchet (Ratchet And Clank Series)
Sure, he was damn annoying and arrogant in the first game, but Ratchet has now developed into a character worth listening too. He makes jokes that are funny for all ages, he's got tons of quirky humor, and his sarcasm is some of the best used in a video game so far! However, you can still take Ratchet seriously, unlike Captain Qwark, because he has an interesting, rich history, and is still a badass!

1. Deadpool (Er.. Deadpool.)
Sure, Deadpool is a comic book character, but actually HEARING his quips and his arguments with the voices in his head make him laugh out loud funny, instead of the quietly chuckling to yourself kind of funny like there is in his comic books. He's got his toilet humor, his totally random moments, and his SERIOUSLY adult humor, but they're all combined to make the funniest video game character I've ever seen! And the best quote? "I love the smell of Pancakes. They smell of VICTORY!"

Honorable Mentions
The Great Mighty Poo (Conker's Bad Fur Day)
Earthworm Jim (Earthworm Jim Series)
Joe Barbaro (Mafia 2)
Trevor Phillips  (GTA V)
Roman Bellic (GTA IV)
