Osama bin Laden is the founder of al-Qaeda, an Islamic extremist group known for orchestrating the September 11th attacks. He was put on the FBI's list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives following the 1998 attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa. After going into hiding in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region for nearly a decade, he was killed in a raid on his compound on May 1, 2011 by U.S. Navy Seals
In Video Games
Osama bin Laden made an appearance as the final boss
of the low budget title Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror
, a game in which the player takes on missions to hunt down notorious wanted criminals. Though the game is predominantly a first-person shooter, the boss fights are staged in a fighting game format, complete with health bars for each character. Thus, the game ends with the absurd scenario of the player and bin Laden engaging in a martial arts duel. If the player wins, bin Laden is subdued and handcuffed before being taken to a waiting helicopter. Rather than simply escort him inside the vehicle, however, the protagonist delivers a jumping knee to bin Laden, sending him flying into the aircraft in the game's final cinematic.
