It's a fact that people tend to like people who are good-looking, which is why it was so much fun doing a list of The 11 Ugliest Video Game Characters. It's why Hollywood's hottest actors and the biggest musical acts all tend to be attractive in the facial and booty regions. Since video game makers have the luxury of controlling what their characters look like, more often than not they turn out to be hotties. But the hotties aren't what we're concerned with today. We've scoured the gaming pantheon for those characters whose looks leave something to be desired, whose faces are so fuggled that not even a mother could love them: we're talking The 11 Ugliest Video Game Characters. There are plenty of monsters out there we could have chosen from, but this list is primarily of human, humanoid, and used-to-be-human characters.
Game: Anything with Mario probably has this mustachioed menace in it.
Wario probably thinks he's good-looking (a little denial can be a healthy thing) but it doesn't change the fact that he could really benefit from an eyebrow wax and some rhinoplasty. Welcome to the list of 11 Ugliest Video Game Characters, Wario.
Does Porky have eyes? Or a nose? You'd have to ask him to find out, and this suspender-clad kid is such a jerk you probably wouldn't want to.
Game: Mortal Kombat II
Baraka may claim to hail from the Outworld, but it's clear that this guy came from the dog house. Woof!
Game: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
There've been plenty of goofy-looking characters in the Legend of Zelda series, but Falbi's bug eyes, bug nose, bug chin, and pot belly combined with his terrible fashion sense make him stand out above the rest.
Game: Street Fighter IV
Rufus, Rufus, Rufus. A razor and a little healthy eating is all it'd take to bump you up a few points, handsomeness wise. Although to be fair you've already got a smokin' hot girlfriend, so you probably don't give a crap.
Game: Left 4 Dead
The Smoker may claim that, "It's not a tumah," but that lump of crap hanging off of his face is not scoring points with anyone.
Game: Max Payne
Max, stop squinting. Oh, you're not squinting? That's just how your face is throughout all of the first Max Payne? Ah, well, at least you're not bald, bearded, and a little pot-bellied. Still, your scrunch face earns a spot on our list of the 11 Ugliest Video Game Characters.
Game: Batman: Arkham City
Picking on Two-Face may seem a little unfair, seeing as how he was the victim of a vial of acid to the face, but it's been a long time since you got burned, Harvey. Get some reconstructive surgery, some new suits, and for goodness sake, put some eye drops in that left eye!
Game: Mass Effect
Part of what's cool about Shepard is that she (or he), can be what you want her/him to be. Most people opt for someone traditionally good-looking, but other, more deviously-minded players, go with something goofy.
Game: Mortal Kombat II
If ever there were a time to use the term "butterface" it would be with Mileena, because everything about her is hot... but her face. Her face will friggin' bite your face off, which is never a sign of a good date.
NES Cover Art Mega Man
Game: Mega Man
Is NES Cover Art Mega Man constipated? Why does he have a pistol when Mega uses his arm cannon? Why is he yellow? What's wrong with his faaaace? These are but a few questions to which the world will never get an answer, but one thing we do know for sure is that NES Cover Art Mega Man is one uuuuugly dude, and definitely worthy of being at the top of the 11 Ugliest Video Game Characters list.
