    try geralt of rivia from the witcher,or snake from the metal gear series, and then there’s jedi and sith too, infact try marcus fenix from gears of war and 47 from hitman, characters from dragon age or a vampire game would be badass…

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Well the good news is, you’re not the first person to suggest those characters! Geralt is on the list, as is Starkiller(for a little sith/jedi action), Marcus, and Agent 47. Also, Snake is going to be the next character we cover! I put the characters up for a voting poll on Facebook and Tumblr to pick who I’m going to cover next, so be sure to follow the blog there!

      • Andy says:

        Man how are you ever gonna keep up, The list may just never end…there’s always a new addition to your list of warriors as it happens to the video game industry…

        And one more thing, could you specify the character classes on a separate page with a link on your home page. That’d be swell. I mean a lot of guys i know have trouble choosing which character would suit best for their individual strengths and weaknesses. You could also put up a quiz for that matter. I mean the choices you give are all so lucrative, one might lose oneself in it.

        You’re giving us nerds a chance to finally live our dreams…bless you for that.

        • DaRatmastah says:

          haha, yeah, I know, it’s an uphill struggle. Guess I’ll just keep plugging away =D

          A quiz is actually an excellent idea. I’m currently in the beginning stages of a redesign for the blog, and I will definitely take that and the character class page into consideration.

          Hey, you’re the only one able to give yourself a chance to live your dreams, I’m just trying to show you where the path is. =D I’m really happy to help, though.

      • m4iler says:

        Can’t wait for 47 😀

    Eager fans waiting…Eager fans waiting…

    Hey, Dan!

    I just wanted to say how much I love your website! My favourites are Commander Shepard and Isaac Clarke. I was reading the article about Phillip Jones/AstraVex and he was so inspiring. However, my story is quite the opposite. While Phillip is on a mission to lose weight, I need to gain weight. Any tips?

    Also, may I suggest a game character or two for you to add to your to-do list? Garrett of the Thief Series and Corvo Attano of Dishonored. They’re almost similar to some of the characters that you’ve already done, so I wouldn’t mind if you skipped them.

    One more thing, do you mind if I shared your website with some of my friends, real world and online? I’m a bit worried that your website might get spammed with chain mail and advertisement nonsense.

    Take care,
    The Barn Owl

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Hey Barn Owl!

      Thanks for taking the time to write! I’m really glad you enjoy the site! You can most definitely share it with your friends, in fact, I encourage it! Healthy living is one of the best things to spread around (don’t worry, my server can handle it). As to your character suggestions, they’ve actually both been suggested before, so yeah, I’d say there’s a good chance I’ll cover them in the future 😉 Until then, I’d recommend something like The Faith or Ezio workout, as they have similar builds/skills.

      In regards to gaining weight, I’m gonna need a little more info! What’s your current height/weight, and what kind of build are you shooting for? Hit me up in an email to, I’d be happy to go into detail =)

      Live boldly!

  4. Sam says:

    You should do Krieg from Borderlands 2!

  5. DaBlooMastar says:

    Nikolai Orelov , russian master assassin.

  6. Conchúr says:

    NCR veteran ranger from fallout new Vegas :) or does it have to be a main character?

  7. Jon says:

    I love the blog man it’s great. have you ever considered doing Terry Bogarde from Fatal Fury/King of Fighters or Gabriel Belmont from Castlevania Lords of Shadow series?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Thanks! Those are both excellent suggestions, I think I’ll add them to “The List.” =D The list is pretty long at this point, so it might be a little while, but we’ll get there!

  8. Kat says:

    I would love to see some of the Avengers up on here, especially Captain America. Also if you have time could you also maybe do a Wonder Woman one as well? That would be just too cool!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh, now THAT is tempting. I used to have a moratorium on characters that originate outside of the gaming medium, but I think I’ve kind of broken that wall with Batman, soo….hmmm. >_>

      • Kat says:

        Lol well if it would make the decision easier you could base the DC characters off of games like Injustice and the Marvel ones off of Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter or Marvel Ultimate Alliance. :)Either way it just sounds fun! Love the website so just keep doing what makes you happy. :)

  9. Travis says:

    So when can we expect some new characters. I saw in one of the comments you mentioned Starkiller and that got me excited. I loved The Force Unleashed 1 and 2 and i’m a big
    Star Wars fan. Other characters in would love to see are Corvo Attano, the assassin of Dunwall (of course I already recommend him) Cole McGrath or Delsin Rowe from InFAMOUS 1 and 2 and the newly released Second Son. Any Mortal Kombat character would be awesome but the ones I’m sure everyone wants to see are Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Bordelands characters would be cool but im not sure how applicable they are. Sora, Riku, Roxas, Axel, Ansem, any character from Kingdom Hearts would be AMAZING. War and Death from Darksiders would also be pretty epic. Well I think that’s it from me. Hope we get some new ones soon

  10. Joshua says:

    The game isn’t out yet but hopefully we could see how to be like Aiden Pearce from Watch_Dogs! I would be FOREVER grateful!!! Love you guys!

  11. Clone says:

    You should do Ike. He’s a swolehouse awesome guy and he’s back for SSB4 wooooooo!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Duuuuude, I saw his Smash4 debut shot and I was like “DAAAAAAYUM.” Coincidentally he’s one of my favorite characters in Brawl, as well.

      Full confession time, though: I’ve never played a Fire Emblem game. Ever. I think I’d have to put in a little hands-on time with him in his native environment before I featured him…or maybe not. We’ll see =D Good suggestion, though!

  12. Chris says:

    Is it possible you could do Deadpool, he is legendary so it would be awesome if you could base a workout around him. Cheers..

  13. Barrett says:

    Awesome website! Have you considered doing Garrett from the thief video games? I have to say it again awesome website!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Thanks! Garrett is definitely on the list! You’re not the first person to suggest him, hehe. I should be getting to him soon!

      • DaRatmastah says:

        Also: I’d definitely recommend clicking that link in the top right and join the mailing list so you know when he comes out, in case you don’t check the site all that frequently =D

  14. Iamde123 says:

    How about adding Strider Hiryu to the list.

  15. Lee says:

    He gets a lot of hate but Robin or Nightwing would be awesome!!!

  16. Cain says:

    Other good idea for a character is Sol Badguy from Guilty Gear, he looks like a Tank/Fighter or just a plain old fighter but who knows just doing this on a fly.

  17. Cain says:

    Also Terry Bogard from King of Fighters is another one I was thinking something old school classic ya know?

  18. Cain says:

    and for the females I think Aya Brea from Parasite Eve is also good sorry for the muilt post I’m on a phone.

  19. Iamde123 says:

    Dude, I think your website is broke. When I click on Sephiroth or Link it sends me to Connor.

  20. Press Start says:

    What about Little Mac or even Mega Man (I doubt the latter is possible but worth a try right?).

  21. viewber says:

    You should make a workout for jak from the jak and daxter series. He’s extremely agile and quick, and his skills are unparalleled.

  22. TheSwordsman says:

    Hey, thanks for everything you do I am very excited to try out the Shiek workout myself. xP As for character suggestions, I know I am probably not the first to suggest these but to throw out some ideas perhaps Raiden from metal gear, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Garett from Theif, and perhaps the protagonist from Mark of the ninja? Anyway, Keep being awesome. 😀 -TheSwordsman

  23. TheSwordsman says:

    Hi, its me again! New idea, what about Yasuo from league of legends. He would definitely be a lot about speed and agility, his morals and his fighting style would all make a really cool guide! Anyway, keep it up this is a brilliant way to get geeks like me to exercise. Woo! ^_^

  24. Aiden says:

    I love this website, have you thought about making a workout for Bigby Wolf from the wolf among us?

  25. Cain says:

    Squall leonhart from final fantasy viii

  26. Rob says:

    Any chance of a captain falcon workout?

  27. Xtremis says:

    Has anyone ever suggested a Little Mac workout? I would be very happy if you posted that! :)

  28. CJ says:

    I’m doing the link workout.
    Could I suggest Deathstroke from Arkham Origins and The Grey Warden or hawke from dragon age.

  29. Cain says:

    Jonny quest from jonny Quest: Cover-Up At Roswell and Jonny Quest in Doctor Zin’s Underworld just random idea and old school

  30. August says:

    How about a workout based on the Prince from the Sands of Time trilogy? I’ve always had him as one of my gamer role-models. (Not counting his appearence in Warrior Within. He’s just a douche in that one…)

  31. NINJA man says:

    Hey Dan nice job with your posts so far and i think sly cooper and akuma would be good to addon to the list

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Thanks! Good suggestions! I did do an Akuma Combat Guide on the youtube channel so you can check that out for now (just click videos at the top), and the Ryu workout wouldn’t be a bad sub until I get around to covering Akuma. Thanks for reading!

  32. Cain says:

    Characters from Guilty Gear? Sol Badguy or Ky Kiske or who knows alot of them can be picked.

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Guilty Gear and other fighting games are awesome because you can cover basically ANY character from them, hahaha. Good suggestions!

  33. Onataria says:

    Is it okay if I suggest/request the Protagonists from Persona 3 and 4? Or even just any of them at all? Like they use a variety weapons. Like one uses a rapier, one uses her legs, one uses a halberd etc

    • DaRatmastah says:

      It’s always okay! I’ll have to do a little legwork on that as I’ve never actually played any of the Persona games but hey, I’m down! =D

      • Onataria says:

        That’s awesome! I’d be happy to discuss/help with some of them. I’m a big Persona game player so I know quite a bit about them :3

  34. Senzui says:

    I think that shulk from xenoblade would be a great workout for beagamecharacter

  35. Cain says:

    Taco Man xD

  36. nate jones says:

    Hi. I’ve done a few of these workouts myself ie; ryu and Batman. I’m a big xmen fan and would love to see a workout from that character roster. I think one of the more well rounded mutants in strength,size, and agility like a gambit or wolverine.

  37. Mike says:

    I would like to see Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow. As a work out!

  38. Project_Ronin says:

    do karl fishburne from sniper elite series

  39. rob says:

    I know these things take a lot of time but would you consider doing any characters from tf2

  40. Matej says:

    Hey man great site.I am really loving these workouts and curently using solid snake workout and skills but i would like to ask you if you could do a agent 47 workout because he is my favourite game character.Keep up the good work man…

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Thanks! Glad you like the site! Agent 47 has been requested more than a couple of times, so you can rest assured that we’re going to get to him! Thanks for commenting!

  41. Rob says:

    Do you follow any of these workouts?

  42. Sam says:

    How about Marcus Fenix or a character from Gears of War?

  43. Sweeney says:

    I love this blog…my whole life I’ve ran round with sword and shield pretending to be Link or with BB guns pretending to be Resident Evil characters. This blog helped me to begin achieving. Have you ever thought of posting about Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil? Preferably his RE4 phase?

  44. Alpha says:

    Thank this Website and keep posting info

  45. Rob says:

    I know these things take a lot of time and you already have a lot of things lined up, but I would like to suggest Saxton Hale from team fortress 2. I know he isn’t really in the game besides his own unofficial mode, but I think it would be a good one to do.

  46. Rob says:

    We need big boss. I know he is very similar to solid but he is definitely stronger.

  47. Dan says:

    As a suggestion, there should be a DeathStroke workout. But that’s just my opinion/suggestion.

  48. Sebastian says:

    hey man could you please please please make a workout of Siegfried Schtauffen from Soul calibur Series!it would be so cool

  49. Rob says:

    Hey Dan, for someone trying to be like a dovahkiin, what workout would you recommend for someone who is trying to get the build of a Nord

  50. Alex says:

    Hey Mr Dat is the firt time that i see this website and its really great i love it all the characters,workout and i am a big fan of videogames and working out could you please please add the Altered Beast the Ps2 version character “Luke Caster” workout 😀 he is really great! cmon he can transform on 9 different creatures and he knows how to fight when the vital energy is low and with a punch he can absorb that energey from his enemies 😀 hope you post it and like it 😀 i really like you page bro

  51. jayshof says:

    I know it’s not necessarily a game character, but I’d love to see a workout for zero from one piece

  52. Sam says:

    Hey man, how about Krieg from Bordorlands 2 or any Bordorlands characters?

  53. rob says:

    We still need mortal combat characters on this blog. Any chance of them soon?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      I agree! I think next character poll will be “Fighting Game Characters” and there will definitely be some MK guys on their.

  54. Ashley says:

    Are going to add Claire Redfield to the list, since you already have Jill Valentine? Or even Catwoman? :3 Leon S. Kennedy would also be good to have and Borderlands characters, too.

  55. Tri says:

    Have you done a Fox or Falco workout yet?

  56. Sebastian says:

    hi,have you considered Marth from Fire Emblem and the Smash Bros series?

  57. ProjectRonin says:

    Albert wesker

  58. Poppoff says:

    Yours site’s awesome man.
    The only crime its guilty of is not having the Prince of Persia on the list.
    Looking forward to seeing him……….
    Im really looking for a parkour/agility oriented while still strength/muscle building workout workout.
    Whaddya say?

  59. ProjectRonin says:

    Do deathstroke

  60. Hayden says:

    I just found this website and I’m loving it so far! I’m extremely into fitness and video games so it’s perfect! Have you thought of doing a post about Deadpool! He’s kinda a game character. Lol. Oh and Agent 47 would be awesome! I’m starting the Solid Snake workout routine today!

  61. Josh says:

    Captain Falcon… or is that just Ganondorf with more cardio?

  62. Your fans await your return Dan. You have inspired us to grow in more ways than one.

  63. ProjectRoninHd says:


  64. Rob says:

    Is lifting 3 days enough to mKe decent gains?

  65. Taylor says:

    Brick from Borderlands

  66. Stahl says:

    Hey dan, would the master chief workout be good enough to build the pysique of the nord from the elder scrolls?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Absolutely. If you’re looking to build muscle (I’m not sure where you’re at, physique-wise), you’re also going to want to eat at a moderate caloric surplus, and get 0.8-1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. If you’re overweight and want to look like a nord, then shoot for a caloric deficit of around 250-350 calories a day, while still consuming 0.8-1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
