4) Travis Touchdown

Suda51 is like a magician whose hat is full of twisted, yet beautiful rainbow-colored mutant bunnies. His games are always full of creativity, and they always star great antiheroes. Probably the most memorable one is Travis Touchdown, a nerd-turned-assassin with a love for everything “moe.” I think the most interesting aspect about Travis is that he’s supposed to represent the player in both No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. He’s impatient, violent, yet strangely innocent in his quest to the end credits. Like many of us. And even as his own character, Travis Touchdown is unlike anything we’ve seen in video games before. He’s a character that, at the same time, can be both hilarious and tragic, lame and cool, simple and surprisingly deep.
