Top ten most athletic heros
Ezio Auditore: Assassin Creed 2
You start Assassins Creed 2 as Ezio a young man with a brash personality. He is also very athletic apparently because he is able to scale building and reach heights higher than your average character. He is also very quick, especially with his ability to carry around all that weight and weapons. His has unsurpassed agility to escape from guards and still scale buildings. I mean he can leap from to building to building and swan dive in hay without even getting tired this guy is a pure bred stamina athlete.
Cole McGrath: Infamous and 2
Cole McGrath “The Demon of Empire City” is an athletic monster. Don’t let anyone tell you differently about that. He may have electric powers to hover, shoot, and grind on cables, however he was first an urban explorer. That means he would scale tons of buildings with his pure upper body strength with no wiring. He can and will bring it anywhere he goes. He has to, the fate of New Marais depends on it.
Nathan Drake: Uncharted:drakes fortune
Uncharted’s Nathan Drake is a very athletic hero. He can run, gun, swim, shoot, and survive all in one. He is a expert climber and he is also one of the best at what he does. He doesn’t always rely on guns and would rather not shoot anyone to get his mission complete unless he has to. He is great at climbing and has stamina is unlike no other.
Bruce Wayne: Batman Arkyham Asylum
Bruce Wayne as Batman is absolutely one of the most athletic gaming characters ever. He may not be the fastest but what he lacks, he makes up for in intelligence. He is a brutal combat specialist and his strength would make even the most brolic of men cry.
Kratos: God of War
In the end there will only be chaos! Well not in this post anyway. Kratos is the man if you want to go on a quest for revenge and vengeance. I shouldn’t even have to explain how athletic this Man/God is. He challenged the king of olympus himself to a battle to the death. This is a embodiment of a spartan soldier. 300 ain’t got nothing on Kratos.
Gabriel Belmont: Castlevania Lords of Shadow
The recent Konami game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow featured the new protagonist Gabriel Belmont. This game showed the honor, loyalty, strength, and perseverance of an athletic hero. He can not be denied as being an athletic person because of the strength to battle werewolves or evil generals of the night. He showed how athletic he was when you fought those battles. He even maintain the power to ride on the backs of werewolves.
Sonic The Hedgehog: Sonic The Hedgehog Series
Sonic may not be the strongest character or the smartest but he’s got on thing on his side. That’s speed baby! The hedgehog is one the fastest heros and that speed could be the difference between whether you live or die. I know if there was a bomb set to go off in 5 mins and I was 10 mins away I would send sonic because I know he would make it.
Mario: Mario series
Let’s be honest Mario has got hops that even his airness Michael Jordon would be jealous of. You might be thinking to yourself Mario is not athletic at all. Well, you are wrong and here’s why. This man can sprint for long periods of time, jump to insane heights and even flush himself down drain pipes. It’s also a plus, if your septic tank clogs up you can call him up if he’s not busy saving the princess.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Series
Lara Croft is simply the woman that every guy wants to take home to their mother and make her proud. She is similar to first three heroes I mentioned above. She has those superb climbing skills and the ability to swim underwater. Michael Phelps better watch out.
Prince of Persia:
The Prince has been known for his superb athleticism time and time again. His ability to run up and down walls and climbing abilities are unparalleled. He has the agility of an acrobat with the charm of a movie star. This is why he is rounding up this awesome list of superb super atheltic gaming characters.
