Top 7... Cutesy Characters We Want to Beat the Crap Out of

6. Professor Kawashima, Brain Age / DS - (AKA, “Dr. Kawashima,” “Brain Age Dude,” and “Bespectacled Man Who Laughs At You”)

For a game that gruelingly tests our patience and our IQ, we need something cute and endearing to keep our spirits up and salve our wounded egos when we score about 12 years below where our brain actually is. What we get instead is a patronizing, passive-aggressive twat that not only makes us feel bad about ourselves for being dumb--er, not “smart,” but he also makes us feel bad for resenting him because he’s based on the real life Professor Ryuta Kawashima, who’s really an okay guy. Why can’t his avatar live up to the image?

One of our interns said it best: “So you want to play Sudoku?  Okay.  Hey, first why not draw a fire hydrant?  Just do it. How's that look compared to this example? Not so good huh? Oh well. I'll save it anyway. Want to go to Sudoku now? Did I mention you haven't visited in awhile? I did? It’s pretty early today, thus making my glasses foggy so I might have missed that. Hmm? Oh right Sudoku. Okay. Hey, do you want to know when you choose the wrong number? Well, alright. Anyway, see ya soon, have fun with Sudoku!”

How we’d do it:
Take his glasses and break them. Pick his nose with a pickaxe. And then give him a trashy Britney Spears makeover complete with shaven head. Who looks stupid now? Jackass.

    What about Omochao from Sonic Heroes? In the tutorial, or the first level of Team Rose that I'm pretty sure people only play bcause they either aren't competent enough to do the higher difficulties or want to get to the final battle and unlock Team Metal Sonic, Omochao stops you so you have to listen to his shit. You could press A, but you stand still after he finishes. Omochao's dealy annoyingness is also demonstrated in the preloader for a Newgrounds anmation. ("Press the A Button to jump!" "Press the Power button to start!" "Use both of your legs to walk!" "Did you know that if you didn't press any buttons you wouldn't move?") Or that dog from Duck Hunt. He laughs at you and you can't shoot him.

    I'd love to beat Tails with a rusty pipe wrench then shove him into a wood chipper then shove what's left of him up a monkey's butt then set the monkey on fire, then throw the ashes off a cliff.

  • Cwf2008 - December 8, 2008 1:06 a.m.

    Hmm well i guess the Tinkerbell comparison keeps gamesradar from going too ballistic on Navi, but what i'd do is stick a grenade in wherever Navi talks from, tie it to a missle, set it on fire, and then fire it off a cliif.
  • Super_gamer73 - November 13, 2008 3:54 a.m.
