With the Brazilian carnival happening it’s time to take a look at the best Brazilians in gaming. There aren’t that many as it turns out besides the national football team and cannon fodder in Max Payne 3. But luckily fighting games are here to save the day. Make yourself a nice cocktail and get ready for the top 5 Brazilians in gaming!
5. Bob Wilson – Fatal Fury series
Bob Wilson is a Brazilian fighter who was introduced in Fatal Fury 3. His fighting skills are based on the Brazilian martial art Capoeira. Bob is a happy guy shown be the fact that he gives a thumbs up after winning a match. Besides fighting Bob runs the Pao Pao Cafe in the King of Fighters series. Good to know right?
4. Marco Rodriguez – Fatal Fury series
Marco Rodriguez is another Brazilian character from the Fatal Fury series. According to the creators, Rodriguez is the most durable fighter in the ninth and final game in the series. Due to conflicting rights with an MMA fighter, his name was changed to Khushnood Butt. Who the hell came up with that? Never mind, he is a total bad ass and very popular among Fatal Fury fans.
3. Eddy Gordo – Tekken series
Eddy Gordo is a Brazilian capoeira fighter that first appeared in Tekken 3. He’s learned his fighting skills from the grandfather of his pupil… But we will come back to that later. Even though he is one of the more popular characters in the Tekken series, he’s mostly seen as a newbie character…. hence the nickname Eddy “Button Masher’s Saviour” Gordo.
2. Christie Monteiro – Tekken series
In Tekken the student outshines the master. It was Christie Monteiro’s grandfather who taught Eddy the honourable art of capoeira. Who in his turn passed it on to Christie. She started out in Tekken 4 as a palette swap for Eddy, but got her own move set over the years. Christie is strong, sexy and one of the most recognizable Brazilian fighters in the Iron First Tournament!
1. Blanka – Street Fighter series
The most popular Brazilian fighter is of course Blanka. The green electric monster took the world by storm when he first appeared in the 1991 fighting game Street Fighter 2. Together with Ken, Ryu and Chun-li, Blanka is one of the most well known fighting game characters out there. What most people don’t know, is that he was born as a human called Jimmy. His plane crashed in the rain forest, where he was exposed to electric eels, causing his mutation. Let that be a lesson guys, stay away from electric eels unless you want to end up as a green orange haired monster!
