    Another silly name from the Star Ocean franchise…. Fayt Leingod… dude had fate and God in his name



  2. Jenna Hinckley on December 16, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    you guys could make a list including nothing but ace attorney characters, and yet not a single one to be found on this one.



  3. Amethyst Mei on December 16, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    How about Red White from Ace Attorney? He’s supposed to be taken seriously, even with his vocabulary and name, he’s a murderer, after all.



  4. Fox Campbell on December 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    On the topic of Soulsborne, let’s talk about the Living Failures, a Group Bossfight named after the Healing Church’s achievements in medicine.



  5. Quinton Wilde on December 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    If you don’t want to have a ceaseless discharge wear protection



  6. The Let's Player on December 16, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Jack Hard sounds like a thing you would call drunk. I’m going to get Jack hard.



  7. Quinton Wilde on December 16, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Let’s get Jetstream in the top ten baby names by 2029



  8. Quinton Wilde on December 16, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Jack Hard had to be a purposeful joke



  9. Mike Scrase on December 16, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Wasn’t Hot Coldman pretty much just a character from Burnt Face Man?



  10. Pedro Chiriboga on December 16, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Red Ocean 2: Jack Hard With a Vengeance



  12. RoThotic on December 16, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    every name in death stranding



  13. Rachel Holmes on December 16, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    IIRC, in one part of Star Ocean, precocious pre-teen Edge Maverick displays his badassery by riding across a desert on a giant pink bunny.



  14. Robert Lewis on December 16, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Well never forget about Mr. Harry Johnson. Mike Hunts cousin.



  15. Alex Gnardellis on December 16, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Its not a video game but si-fi novel snowcrash had a character named Hiro Protagonist



  16. He Ang pro_CTB on December 16, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    We need a final showdown between Jack Hard and The Thing That Is Always Sore in a game called Ceaseless Discharge.



  17. Jaune Arc on December 16, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    I am unironically in love with the name Sol Badguy–like.

    He is SO cool



  18. David Lilley on December 16, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Lol Jack hard lol 😂 poor Mike struggling to not laugh actually Mike I think your son will be an npc or on par with them at least ekim right lol ?



  19. mancan71 on December 16, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    I’m very surprised there were no names from Ace Attorney in here.

    Wendy Oldbag
    Lotta hart
    Tyrell badd
    Ini miney
    Dick gumshoe
    Sal Manella

    Just to name a few!



  20. Hellwyck on December 16, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Red Dawn 2: Jack Harder!



  21. jacthing1 on December 16, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    You forgot Balsac from dragons dogma



  22. Row-Bear Lee Here on December 16, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Cyrus T Lazerpunch



  23. Black Vash on December 16, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Sol-Badguy’s whole existence is a Queen reference.



  24. s v on December 16, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Jack hard means changing a tire in a suv nothing else



  25. Herowebcomics on December 16, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Omg!
    Guilty gear and Star Ocean Last hope for the win!



  26. Mile Sipka on December 16, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Jack Hard? What a wanker…



  27. Arthur Mothman on December 16, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    I can only assume Crow’s full name is ‘Crow F***ing Almedio



  28. Synvision Gaming on December 16, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Great video. Always enjoy them.



  29. TheKeeperOfKnowledge on December 16, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    What about the Monkey Island series protagonist: Guybrush Threepwood?



  30. Jorge Zenteno on December 16, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    – Bayonetta’s original name is… Cereza. I understand why she doesn’t use it I mean, which is scarier? A bayonet… or a freaking fruit?
    – TF2 soldier: A madman that basicly kept killing nazis until 1949, that throws himself into the battle and only lives for combat. The name of this deadly sir… is Mister Jane Doe
    – Ah, Banjo kazooie! You have a great villain called… Gruntilda Winkybunion… yeah.



  31. Furious Pusher on December 16, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Are we just going to ignore Balsac from Dragon’s Dogma?



  32. Flutterbutt225 on December 16, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    this video is old af but I didn’t see anyone else saying it so:

    Suda 51’s name is a pun/stylized version of his surname – Goichi. "go" meaning "5" and "ichi" meaning "1". 🙂



  33. Robert Illing on December 16, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    At least Sergeant Rex "Power" Colt was given that name ironically.



  34. Nicol Bolas on December 16, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    I did not in fact think Sol Badguy would have a family because despite Sol beihg a name for our sun it’s also sole bad guy and therefore the only one.



  35. Aaron Richards on December 16, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    Fun fact: I was, in fact, eating when ceaseless discharge came up



  36. LENNY! on December 16, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    hot coldman 😂😂 and sol badguy😂😂



  37. Bigot Sandwich on December 16, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    They should have put Lazarevic from Uncharted



  38. nellielittlecat on December 16, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    In radiant historia the main was named stoke



  39. LyingSecret on December 16, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    Fatman had a basis in reality, and was actually a good name as he was named after one of the bombs dropped on Japan, he just happened to also be a man who was fat.



  40. Hisha1303 on December 16, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    The main Impossible Creatures is a guy named Rex Chance
    It’s implied his name was changed but that doesn’t really make it better



  41. icepaw the ninjago lady on December 16, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Ah like *BUCKET*



  42. John Smith on December 16, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Almost a decade and only now have they reached the boundaries of wholesomeness.



  43. Natalie Olsen on December 16, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Like me being called Children Babies 😉

    (LoL cursed comment)



  44. Idont Knowyou on December 16, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    I’m guessing Colonel Tungsteena Zarpedon from BL:TPS would be too obvious to mention – even though she’s the most serious and dangerous character in the game, nobody in the game can ignore how ridculous her name is.



  45. Shawn Furl on December 16, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Jack Hard… think he knows Ceaseless Discharge?



  46. Nakatomi Uk on December 16, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Star Ocean 4 omg I found so bloody boring Kay



  47. Jon Gon on December 16, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Asschair. Cause he saw that man sit his ass on a chair one time.



  48. Anne Noro on December 16, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    Bad Guy could be a Queen reference too. His real name is Frederik Bulsara while Freddie calls himself „Mr. Bad Guy“.



  49. Babble Bear on December 16, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    7:35 OH, if that one character’s name was based off Freddie Mercury… Freddi’s solo album was called ‘Mr. Bad Guy’



  50. GBProductions84 on December 16, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    If there’s another Punch-Out game, Pizza Pasta should return but given a new name like Pete Zah or Guido Marinara. His story could be kinda sad where he owes money to the Mafia so he’s boxing.
