Silliest Game Character Name?

Post by Timothy Lumsden » Wed Jun 22, 2011 5:06 am

Simply, which videogame character do you think has the most ridiculous/amusing name?

I'm pitching in footballers from the Megadrive soccer game era (ie: pre real football names) - where there was a game that had footballers called Manny Steinberg and Darby Swanson.

The only thing about the monkey island games is isn't their names supposed to be silly?
