The 20 Most Badass Video Game Cosplay Costumes Ever

master-chief.jpg

We have a lot of fun with cosplay here on Unreality. More specifically, we enjoy leering at the hot chicks and making fun of the truly sad failed attempts. But I figured I’d switch it up and feature the best of the best, and after an afternoon searching, I can safely say that these are the 20 most badass video game cosplay costumes ever. Or you know, 20 pretty cool ones. Hit the jump for the full gallery.

Marcus Fenix – Gears of War

I’m not so sure about the demon-possessed contacts, but everything else…wow.

Brotherhood of Steel Solider – Fallout 3

It’s like one of those giant standup things at Gamestop, but there’s a guy in it!

Big Daddy and Little Sister – Bioshock

I’m not sold on Little Sister, but Big Daddy is spot on.

Altair – Assassin’s Creed

Yeah, he blends right in the crowd.

Dark Link – The Legend of Zelda

Mark my words, the only time I’ll ever use “badass” and “Link cosplay” in the same sentence.

Helghast – Killzone

I played through this entire game, but I never figured out if they were aliens or demons or Nazis or what.

Jin Kazama – Tekken

I wouldn’t want to ride home with him.

Cloud – Final Fantasy VII

There are roughly 100,000 Cloud cosplayers out there, but this one is my favorite.

Kitana – Mortal Kombat

Because women can be sexy AND badass. Look at those razor fans!

Kratos – God of War

The world is in need of a truly epic Kratos cosplayer. This guy is close, but needs to hit the gym for about year.

Nero – Devil May Cry

Screw Dante, this Nero is a ****ing baller.

Nightmare – Soul Calibur

What the? This Nightmare looks like belong straight on the Soul Calibur movie set.

Sam Fisher – Splinter Cell

Yeah, he’s just one step removed from a regular SWAT guy, but whatever, still awesome.

Pyramid Head(s) – Silent Hill

Because two pyramid heads are better than one.

Samus Aran – Metroid

Even I know that this Samus getup is legendary among cosplayers.

Sephiroth – Final Fantasy VII

Love everything but the hairline.

Solid Snake – Metal Gear Solid

Alright, so Snake wasn’t asian, but this guy’s got the attitude.

Marine – Starcraft

I have serious doubts that this guy can move.

Vincent – Final Fantasy VII

Yup, people really like Final Fantasy VII.

And I’ll leave you with…
