Come on, we've all done this before: name a character something immature, like Ass or Shit, so every character in the world would end up saying things like, "Hey, ass!" or, "Oh, shit!" So I thought I'd start a thread dedicated specifically to all the dumb names you've given characters in video games. However, one suggestion: BE CREATIVE. I don't think we all want to see a thread full of Fucks and Assholes. Let me start things off and set the mood: in Pokemon Red, I decided that I'd name my rival Sexy. Why? This 100% unaltered, real pic:

I bought DiRT 2 today.
 
My driver's name is Shitmuncher McAnus.

I called my character Gary and my arch-nemesis Ash in Pokemon Yellow.  I thought the portrayal of Gary in both the games and in the cartoon were very one sided.

I like to name all my animal characters Paul that way when I see it above them I here Adam West saying " a___ named Paul that's just silly Paul is a human's name, who names their _____Paul"

#5 Posted by Capum15 (4820 posts) -
@Video_Game_King: That's awesome. Almost as good as the Prof. Oak Elite Four picture/motivational.
 
Too tired to be creative, I can't think of anything good...
 
I suppose there's always the Metapod named Penis, and the Mew named Optimus/Prime (Prime used Transform! Prime used Rollout!). But no player-characters that I can imagine.

I name my video game characters after video game characters

@Capum15: 
 
When I read your post, I first read it as "Meatpod named Penis." Is that still funny?
#8 Posted by AgentofChaos (1565 posts) -

Savvon Drugs. Thats the name my roommate gave his blitz II character.

@Video_Game_King: Taking in the fact that I'm half asleep (I will finish that dang bombcast!), I found that hilarious.

#11 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2051 posts) -

I once called my rival in one of the pokemon games "Douchebag."

#12 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -

I named my guy in Demon's Souls Chexmixica. :P

this. i always find Dude to be a somewhat hilarious name 
#14 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i name my characters like poop and penis. i'm not creative so i usually name them things like that.

I just make them up on the spot and can never remember ones I made up any significant amount of time ago.  Most recently, I made a dwarf warrior on Dragon Age and named him "And My Axe" and named his dog "And My Dog"

#16 Posted by Strongbadman47 (154 posts) -

If I can name characters in my party I'll name them people after I know. It's pretty funny, "Blitz was bitten by a snake and died". If I can only name the main protagonist then I'll go with my other name Ricardo Machete. It's always funny when people call him Ricardo-san or Machete-kun in Persona 4.

#17 Posted by Capum15 (4820 posts) -

Machete-kun...that's great.
 
Thinking about it, "Me" would lead to some pretty good results in something like Pokemon.

#18 Posted by Gruff182 (852 posts) -

My old WoW characters were called Manko, which is basically Japanese for "C*#t" and a Druid called Almeja, which is portugese for clam and slang for pussy. Had a Priest called Quenga but I can't remember what that was, something rude. 
 
Also had Hunters called Dave and Spaggidge. Had Gnomes called Littlebuggar and Littlefecker as well. Err Shamen called Minjeeta, i think thats it...
Basically tried to get the worst names I could within Blizz's profanity system.
 
Probably my finest achievement was making a guild and arena Group called "coming in your face"
 
Other than that my dog characters in Dragon Age and Torchlight are called Turd. Non-online games i'm not arsed with, as noone sees them anyway.

#19 Posted by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

By default, I'll generally try to name my animal pets in games with the suffix of "christ." 
 
"Puppychrist," "Rhinochrist," "Ponychrist..." 
 
I have no idea why, but it makes their names way more amusing to me.

#20 Posted by Video_Game_King (36066 posts) -

Thought of another one whilst watching South Park: name your character Snarf Snarf and pretend you're in Thundercats :P.

#21 Posted by Yummylee (21281 posts) -

I think i named Tifa ''Tits4Brains'' during one playthrough.

#22 Posted by bonbolapti (1599 posts) -

I played through Final Fantasy 7 giving everyone average names. Which is just humourous to me, Especially when you get lines like "The planet is dyin' Gary!" Which ultimately became my favorite line in the entire game. 
 
The only recent thing I know of is naming my Dog in Da:O "Steppenwoof"
#23 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6097 posts) -
@bonbolapti:
My brother and I played through Final Fantasy 7 together when we first got it as teenagers.  When it came time to name Cid, he named him Captain, so we wound up with a few random times when he'd be referred to as "Captain Captain."  Ahhh, dumb teenage humor. 
 
Anyways, I've got a tradition of naming one Smackdown vs. Raw character in each game Balls Malone.  I also tend to give characters fake stupid rap names whenever possible.  Right now, my current playthrough of Final Fantasy Tactics has its main character as "Thuggy D," Dragon Age's character is "Mix Master Melvin" (or something to that effect - might be MC Melvin), and another character in Smackdown vs. Raw is named Juicy Juice.  His finishing move?  The Hawaiian punch.  Ba dum dum dum.

My friend named Link in Wind Waker Fridgeman.

#26 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

I usually name characters Borris. But occasionally I will give them stupid name too. I called my dog in Dragon Age Meatbag, thats about it.

I do exactly the same, but with rude words, like Pikadick, or Assachu and follow through with all of them.  I am puerile like that.  For human characters, I just go historical, like Hitler, he was my nemesis in Pokemon once.  I is stupid, but it does amuse at the time.
#28 Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -

My very favorite was when I was just coming into good gaming, I remember playing Final Fantasy II (IV)
And naming the twin wizards "Fuck" & "You"  (I was about 10)
Then for the rest of the game (that their in) The text would constantly be saying things like
"Fuck, You come on hurry up"
"You, Fuck quick use your magic"
 
I loved that game....

#29 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

I called my friend's save file in the original Legend of Zelda "ASSFUCK".
 
Also, I tend to name my characters after Kevin Smith characters: Dante, Randal, Jay, Silent Bob, etc.

#30 Posted by Capum15 (4820 posts) -

This thread is why I love the Internet and the wonderful people who use it.
 
Well, at least in threads like these.

I did something similar in my recent playthrough of Pokemon Platinum. I named my Pokemon all terrible stuff. My Piplup was originally named "FUUUUCK!" before eventually turning into "a penguin?" and it was great. 
 
"Go, a penguin?!"

Ha-ha, that made me laugh.  Well done and so true.
 
I always give my characters stripper names like Strawberry, Cinnamon, Bambi, Huneydew, Chastity, Fillopia, Kitten, Cherri, Bunni, Candi, and Ambrosia. 
#33 Posted by GunstarRed (5040 posts) -

my rocker in lego rockband is called Stumpwound. 
 
I used to name characters in games when I was a boy after highschool crushes..it was pretty lame. 
ahhh secret of mana.
#34 Edited by Ghostiet (5228 posts) -

Fucker, Whore, Bitch and You cockmonger are my staples in games where I don't care about my character. Especially amusing in Mario Tennis Advance, were characters refer to you by name constantly. "Nice one, Bitch!"

Also, after the Endurance Run I have started to name my characters with variations of Charlie Tunoku. The last one I remember is Charlotte Tuna from Bladestorm.

#35 Posted by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

when I played persona 3 after persona 4 I called everyone their persona 4 equal.
like junpei I called yoske

#36 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

I don't usually name my characters anything funny, but whoever owned the copy of Pokemon Pearl I bought at Gamestop named all of their Pokemon after STDs.

#37 Posted by Gamer_152 (14054 posts) -

I never give my characters names like that, I find the novelty wears off far too quickly and it gets in the way of the dialogue.

Just logged into my old World of Warcraft account. Also had Chars called Scrotem, Tweezerwank and Git.
 
Don't know how I Got away with them! All low level though.

#39 Posted by Nitrocore (369 posts) -

Steve usally comes into my head when naming characters. I named my characters in FF8, my first name then gave a number after it, this is not advisable for such a game, can get slightly confusing in parts. Last but not least my dog in dragon age is called Superdog20, other than those I tend to leave them as their default name so I dont get personally attached..........

#40 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

AssCancer is usually one of my first character names in games I don't take too seriously. Charles Bronson is always fun, as well.

#41 Posted by BlinkinCard41 (25 posts) -

It's entertaining to name your characters Gunther. Especially if it's a female character.

#42 Posted by Black_Raven (1759 posts) -

I'm boring, I usually name my character after myself..

#43 Edited by Red12b (9079 posts) -

I don't go all out with adventuras names, I called the dog in DA:O Legnum, which is the make of my car, 
 
I used to use the name spdster, in the need for speed games, Yeah, kinda lame, I think i used maguffin once, but for the life of me i cant remember the refrence,  
Mc'Keyver cause Mc'guyver was taken, Ahh, Pulp sport.
#44 Posted by Romination (2776 posts) -

I knew a guy who called his character cumscythe. that's hot

#45 Posted by Earthborn (386 posts) -

I named Tidus from FFX "MegRyan."

#46 Posted by Snail (8584 posts) -

Silly Italian names are usually a good silly name to attribute to your character.

#47 Posted by BurningHunter (56 posts) -

I name all my male RPG characters Mark Wahlberg, unless I don't have room for the name, then I just name them Mark and just pretend their last name is Wahlberg.

I usually name my characters after overweight/random famous people, such as my old Siren named Rosie O'Donnell in Borderlands or my skater in Skate 2 being Keanu Reeves.
