I think the same about Nigel (Landstalker on the MD) nothing wrong at all with being called Nigel, but I always thought its was an odd choice. Same thing in Final Fight 3, Dave. Again nothing at all wrong with being called Dave its a perfectly good name but for an actual person.

Speaking of Golden Axe, surely Death=Adder must take the prize for silliest use of punctuation in a character name?

But it still sounds funny.

I actually like the way the programmers had a genuine sense of humour when it came to the earlier MK Games. From the "Toasty!" calls to fake auditing statistics to help propagate rumours of hidden characters... We all knew about Ermac from MK1, but what was this all about in MK2?

They have actually.

Lotus Turbo had some spoof motor-racing names on its default high-score table, like "Nigel Mainsail" and "Ayrton Sendup".
