Game character size comparison

Ever wondered who's bigger out of God of War's Gaia and the Riftworm from Gears of War 2? Of course you have. That's why we've created pretty much the biggest image on the interwebs to showcase the biggest baddies in games and how they match up to each other size wise. Click on either of the preview images below to see the image in all its gargantuan glory.

Just in case you're wondering, we went partially blind making this in Photoshop. It was totally worth it, though. Our white labrador's coming next week.

    Hahaha Gabe Newell, that just made my day.

    I played Resi 4 and the first Metal Gear Solid, and I think the difference in size between these baddies was much bigger. Either El Gigante is bigger, or MG Rex is smaller than I remember them. But then again, the battle against Rex was viewed from above, and right before that I had to climb three floors to get close to its head. Maybe not that much bigger than El Gigante, but certainly more intimidating. Overanalysing again I guess, since Gabe Newell is also on the chart. Another good dose of goofy humour from GR.

    Haha, you guys should've put the King of Cosmos (from Katamari) at the top. Now HE'S FREAKING HUGE! But I guess he's not really a "baddie" per say.

    what is it marcus? A GIANT WORM!!!...i always knew he was gay
  • Eenieboy - March 19, 2010 5:09 p.m.

    REX is larger than that compared to the Gigantes surely...
  • gilgamesh310 - March 19, 2010 8:18 p.m.

    They aren't really to scale, surely gaia is much bigger than that, one of her thumbs is about the size of a small house in the game! In fact El gigante would probably fit into her hand! He's not that big.
  • Axcle - March 19, 2010 10:13 p.m.

    I'm pretty sure this picture is bigger: I knew that worm was bigger than gaia.
  • RebornKusabi - March 19, 2010 11:46 p.m.

    I seriously love the ****ing random "Gabe Newell is larger than a Colossus" bit in the picture. Great work.

    And what's bigger than the Riftworm? THE FRIGGIN' IMAGE ITSELF! DAMN that thing took a while to load in.
