So I never played a Guilty Gear game, but when I saw that the main dude's name was "Sol Badguy" I lost it. This got me thinking what are some of the worst named video game characters I could think of. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
Hard ManFor a dude that's supposed to be a badass robot master, there's nothing intimidading about "Hard Man." At least we know he doesn't need Cialis. He's only slightly more intimidating than Limp Man.
WaluigiOkay, we need a mean version of Mario. How about Wario ? Because the W is M upside down!

Hey you know how awesome Wario is? We need a Wario for Luigi. What's that? An upside down L is a 7, and the name 7uigi is stupid? I don't know, call him Waluigi.
PooPoo is a martial arts warrior from a far away land in Earthbound . It's also a synonym for feces . I don't even understand what the Earthbound guys were trying to do with this one. You guys have a great game, but seriously.
SeamanHalf fish, half man, all confusing. He's not a man that lives in the sea, like the name would suggest. He's just as fish with a man face. We don't call mermaids "Surface Fish Ladies." Not even the prestigious voice of Lenard Nemoy could save this character.
Big the CatGet it? He's a cat that's big.
Pretty much everyone in the Ace Attorney games.Here's a short list of some of the worst-named pun characters I've ever seen, and they all come from the same game.
Penny Nichols, Apollo Justice, Dick Gumshoe, Sal Manella, Shelly de Killer, Lotta Hart, Jack Hammer, Redd White, Tyrell Badd.
