    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 😀

      • David says:

        Scorpion and/or sub zero I think would be great character to do.

  2. Aditya Wanchoo says:

    Eager fans waiting…Eager fans waiting…

  3. The Barn Owl says:

    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 beagamecharacter@gmail.com, I’d be happy to go into detail =)

      Live boldly!
      Dan

  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……….
    Pleeeeeeeeease.
    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:

    MR FOSTER FROM KILLING FLOOR PLEASE

  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.

  67. CoyFish says:

    How would you suggest combining workouts? I’m interested in mixing 3 right now (Little mac, Raoh, Ezio). Mac for skill, Raoh for power and size, and Ezio for speed.

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Honestly? I wouldn’t recommend trying to combine more than two workouts. I would just pick one workout, and maybe work in a little bit of another. Personally, I’d recommend going with Raoh, and work in some of the cardio and sprints from Ezio.

  68. CoyFish says:

    How about a Fighter (Male or Female) from Dungeon Fighter Online?

  69. SneakyGoblin says:

    Hello! I’m not sure if this one is possible or not, but how about Styx the goblin?

  70. Kaiser93 says:

    I just thought about these recommendations because my girlfriend and I have been talking about potential characters you could look into.

    We suggest: Shay Cormac/Aveline de Grandpre (Assassin’s Creed), Big Boss (Metal Gear), Daredevil (been watching the Netflix series so I thought why not), Leon Kennedy/Claire Redfield (Resident Evil), The Sailor Scouts (Sailor Moon), and Bayonetta (Self titled game lol)

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Awesome recommendations, and I’ve gotten a few of them before! =D I will say it’s the first time I’ve seen The Sailor Scouts suggested before, which is great! Pretty sure my wife would appreciate that one!

  71. Pionnius says:

    Would Krieg from Borderlands 2 be possible?

  72. GoForTheEyes! says:

    How’s it going? One of my friends suggested this site so I’m a bit lost. Do you have any suggestions for a Rogue that is known for dirty tactics? I’m looking for someone who fights for survival. Thanks for the help

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Hmmmm… Unfortunately, I don’t think I have anyone who fits that EXACT description, yet… Joel might be a good option, he’s not known for dirty tactics, necessarily, but he’s all about survival. http://beagamecharacter.com/2013/07/02/character-breakdown-joel/

      Edward Kenway, as a pirate, would probably be more of a dirty tactics type guy, so he’s an option, too: http://beagamecharacter.com/2013/11/25/the-edward-kenway-workout/

      Deadpool would also be a guy who’d be all about unique tactics, and I’m covering him right now: http://beagamecharacter.com/2016/03/07/how-to-become-deadpool/

      Those would be my three recommendations to start with. Do you have any particular goals you’re looking for in regards to fitness or personal improvement? I might be able to steer you a little better if I knew them. Either way, please make sure you stop in over at The Guild Hall (link is at the top on the right) and have a chat with the community there, we might be able to “crowdsource” something for you. At any rate, thanks so much for stopping by, and thank for friend for me for suggesting the site to you!

      • GoForTheEyes! says:

        Thanks again for the help. Joel seems the most likely route I’m going down. Deadpool and Kenway are good suggestions, but I can’t exactly see myself as such. They both follow a discipline in the way they fight. Joel on the other hand seems like the “if I see it and it’s useful, USE IT!” Type. Anything can happen in a fight, and I’ve seen crazy stuff in some street scraps, like a guy using a fork as a weapon when he got jumped. Very unusual, but very effective when he uses it in a stabbing motion.

        • DaRatmastah says:

          Forks can be really dangerous if they’re all you’ve got. Sounds like Joel is probably closest to what you’re looking for, yeah.

  73. AmericanAssassin says:

    I’m a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed series, and couldn’t help but cackle like a loon when I had seen that you had Connor, Desmond, Edward, and Ezio. The only problem I’m having is deciding on which one to pick! Ezio has the experiance, Connor has the ferocity, Edward has the know how to survive and fight on land and sea, and Desmond has them all in his head. Please help? I was also told it’s polite to leave a suggestion, so how about Max Payne?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh, Max Payne is a good suggestion! gonna have to file that one away for some future consideration =D

      In my opinion, you should pick who you feel most connected with, and/or most inspired by. If you had to pick one of them to show up in your life, and act as your mentor, who would you pick? Remember, you want to set them up as a goal to aim for in order to keep you motivated, so you need to have that inner connection to start.

      Thanks a lot for visiting, I’m glad you enjoy the site so far! Make sure you stop over and say hey in The Guild Hall!

  74. CoyFish says:

    Hello! It’s a little late (for me anyways) but I thought I would suggest the Priest from DFO. I noticed that their weren’t very many healers in the list, so here ya go!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh! You know, I’ve actually kind of wanted to start a new “Arcane” or some such archetype to feature magic-type characters. I would say Priest falls in line with the Paladin class, for sure, but I’d like to figure out some sort of take on the archetype that lends itself a bit more to the magic theme (healers, wizards, etc.) Thanks for the suggestion! Got the brain juices going…

      • CoyFish says:

        Hello! I’ve done some looking and I’ve managed to find a Tibetan Buddhist art called Reiki (not sure if spelled right). It seemed useful if you still wanna try the arcan theme.

        • DaRatmastah says:

          Yeeeaaaaah I dunno about bringing in actual new age/metaphysical/magick stuff, just for lack of verifiable scientific evidence. When I was thinking the arcane thing I was thinking more scientifically-based mastery of the mind type stuff. I dunno.

  75. Undertaker says:

    Good evening. I am a Corpsman of the US Navy and was recommended by a friend to check out this site since gaming is one of the few past-times we have. I’m currently studying to be a Mortician (hence the name), so I’m curious if you have any characters in mind? I’m aiming for a slim, but deadly build that can take on any opponent both effectively and efficiently. Being in the military does set good standards, but I would like a goal to help me go above and beyond that. Thank you for your time.

  76. Undertaker says:

    Good evening. I was recommended by a fellow Corpsman to check out this site because “Well purposed workouts, and info”. I’m currently studying to be a Mortician (hence the name), so I’m curious if you have any characters in mind? I’m aiming for a slim, but deadly build that can take on any opponent both effectively and efficiently. Being in the military does set good standards, but I would like a goal to help me go above and beyond that. Thank you for your time.

    • Dan says:

      Hey, thanks for commenting, and thank you for your service! In my opinion, it sounds like Sam Fisher is the best fit for what you’re looking for: http://beagamecharacter.com/2012/12/14/the-sam-fisher-workout/

      Sam’s not a huge guy, but he’s strong enough to overpower his foes efficiently, and remove or overcome any obstacles in his way. His workout is based around progressive overload through weighted bodyweight exercise (probably seems pretty familiar to you in the military,) as well as building supreme bodily control through endurance holds and drills.

      Does that sound like something you’re looking for? If not, we can keep digging!

      Thanks again,

      Dan

      • Undertaker says:

        I was surprised that a reply was already placed after only one day, thank you for that. Sam Fisher does have awesome qualities that I’m excited to test, but I do feel a little unsatisfied for some reason. Me just probably being picky, but I will give the Sam Fisher build a run through first. I greatly appreciate the help and response, and after looking around the site, I am very impressed! Kudos to you good sir!

  77. Doc of Devils says:

    How’s it going? I’ve heard good things about the site from a couple of other Corpsman that kept singing praises bout this site, and I’m a bit impressed myself. I’m already in a routine with a couple of Marines right now, but I figured I’d ask and see how well this works. Other than trying to patch up my squad, I may also have to run, pick someone up and on my shoulders, and run back as fast as I can. Fighting isn’t the priority, but protecting the injured is, so combat is also possible. A “shield with spikes!” person is how we’re seen. Thank you, not for just reading, but for looking out for my shipmates.

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Thanks for stopping by! Sorry it took me a few days to get back to you on this, been really jamming on some stuff behind the scenes =D

      Thanks for your service, I appreciate all you and your squad do in your service! Thematically, your description of your job really reminds me of Braum, from League of Legends (who I covered here:http://beagamecharacter.com/2014/05/14/character-spotlight-braum/ ) but workout-wise, I’d probably recommend The Master Chief Workout for you. Solid strength, but also a heavy focus on endurance. Not sure what your current routine looks like, but you might want to work in some stuff from that workout! You can find it here: http://beagamecharacter.com/2013/02/07/the-master-chief-workout/

      Thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment! (and thank your squad for spreading the word, for me!)

  78. CoyFish says:

    Hello! Would Armstrong from Fullmetal Alchemist (there is a game!).

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Armstrong is the man. He is very similar to Braum, though, so in the event that it takes me a while to get to him, Braum would probably be a good substitute. =D

  79. CoyFish says:

    Hello! Is Shovel Knight possible? I know I’ve heard of combat with a shovel before.

  80. CoyFish says:

    Hello! Here’s a Horror suggestion for ya, Jason Voorhees. A tank that can take and deal a lot of damage, but possible?

  81. CoyFish says:

    Hello! I’ve figured out the workout I’m gonna be using, but I kinda mixing and mashing the skill. I’ve tailored the Batman schedule to where I can still stay fit and in routine, but learning all the skills from different characters. Any suggestions to help make sure my noggin doesn’t explode?

  82. Gunner Named Tick says:

    Howdy there. Before I start, you are awesome man. Not many dive straight into the inner workings of game characters and bring them to life, and you do it very well! Alright, Fanboying is over. A buddy of mine and myself started a little competition were we pick random game characters (from almost ANY game) and see if we can bring them to life, physique and skills all in one. I’m dead set on the Gunner (Mechanic) from Dungeon Fighter Online, and he’s set on Deadpool. He suggested I ask and see if you have any suggestions on what I could do since the Gunchanic isn’t easy to emulate. Any suggestions boss?

    • Gunner Named Tick says:

      I’m going to start with Isaac Clarke as a base to the build. If you have any tips, please let me know!

      • DaRatmastah says:

        Hey there! Sorry it took me a little while to follow up on this. First off, thanks for reading, I’m glad you and your buddy like the blog, and I love the fact that you challenge each other like this! So, Isaac Clarke is a good one for the Mechanic, I think another solid pick would probably be Aiden Pearce: http://beagamecharacter.com/2014/06/11/character-spotlight-aiden-pearce/ Are you planning on doing any tech type stuff to go with your character theme, or is this strictly a physical quest? Let me know, and I may be able to help out more.

        Thanks again for stopping by, and for taking the time to leave a comment!

        • Gunner Named Tick says:

          I’m gonna be looking into robotics and tech (coding, hardware, and sotware). What we’re aiming for is basically bringing these characters into reality as much as we can. Me and my pal both practice at a gun range, see what tech and skills we’ll need, and how to gain the builds of the characters. So far he’s in the lead with dual katana lessons.

  83. Detective With a Mouth says:

    How about John Constantine? I’m more a fan of his comic book self, but I know there was a game about the guy.

  84. Deadman! (not really) says:

    Hiya! I was going through the comments and saw a commenter with the name Undertaker who wanted to be a mortician. The name and profession he’s going for got me curious of weather there was any game based character like that? I’m still looking and so far I’m coming up with zip!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Honestly? I can’t think of anyone. You’ve got a couple small-ish characters like Dampe in Legend of Zelda and Yorick Mori in League of Legends, but there’s no primary “Undertaker” character that I know of. I think it would be a fantastic concept to run with, though, you know any game dev studio heads? =P

    • Undertaker says:

      Hello again Dan, and Deadman! (not really). I managed to get some leave time and saw this discussion. While the subject is interesting, not many want to delve into how the caretakers of the dead are. Workout wise, I can tell you that you need to be able to carry your own weight or more, and have a good solid core. I started as a gravedigger when I helped out at the local funeral home, and the only equipment I was give was a couple of wooden stakes, a tarp, a pickaxe, and a shovel. As part of the procession you also may be tasked with being a Pallbearer, and help carry the casket. Skill wise, look into anatomy and physiology, thanato-chemistry/ology, restorative arts. If you end up take care of the graveyard, you’ll also want to look into landscaping, gardening and lawn care. The mind of a mortician is tricky, because of the diversity of the people. Some are morose, dark, creepy, empathic, wise, or just silent. You surround yourself with the very object humans always try to outrun; death. You can expect a few individuals to have quirks when they are in this profession, I know I do. I hope this helped you out, and sorry for taking up the space Dan!

      • DaRatmastah says:

        Thanks for the excellent reply! Don’t worry about taking up space, that was high quality! I hope it helps Deadman out!

        • Deadman! (not really) says:

          Can we find a game dev to ask about this?!? It sounded awesome before, but with the explanation and how you visualize it, this would make a hell of a game!

  85. Goofy Dude says:

    Would Volke from Fire Emblem be good?

  86. Assassins, Thieves, and Tricksters (Oh my!) says:

    Got a couple of characters for ya. Hope ya like’em.
    Grayson Hunt – Bulletstorm
    John Marston – Red Dead Redemption
    Kane or Lynch – Kane & Lynch
    McCall Brothers – Call of Juarez bound by blood
    Victor Reznov – Call of Duty Black Ops
    Sean Devlin – Saboteur

  87. Kain A. says:

    Howdy there! How about Lobo from “Injustice: Gods Among us”? Can’t have a party without the main man!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Great suggestion! I probably won’t be moving on to him right away, just because I JUST covered Deadpool, but I’m definitely adding him to the list. =D

  88. Troy says:

    Could you do Goku? Like a workout for regular Goku, ss1, ss2, ss God etc? And Robin maybe?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh, that would be interesting. Tough, though, in some ways. Like developing a workout for Superman. >_>

  89. Havoc101 says:

    Hi, not sure if any of these have been suggested but Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper, or Adam Jensen from Deus Ex all sound like they would be cool ideas. For the partner characters, maybe do something about best friends and how partnerships work?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh, that would be a cool take! Most of them have been suggested before, but I haven’t gotten to them yet. I like that partnership idea, though! Thanks for suggesting it!

  90. Kudo says:

    A Vergil write up from devilmaycry would make me happy haha

  91. Kudo says:

    Wei Shen from sleeping dogs would be really cool too

  92. SunBro says:

    Hello there! Would Solaire of Astora from Dark Souls be possible to bring to life?

  93. Rob says:

    I would like to suggest Bane. Although he is a comic character more than a game character, he does appear in the arkham series and injustice. He is not very unrealistic in that fact that he has no powers, and besides using venom, he has become a villian by training his mind and his body.

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Ooh, good suggestion! Not sure we’ve had him suggested before. I’ll keep him in mind, thanks!

  94. ethan says:

    would it be possible to create a workout around doomguy?
    im really curious to see how the workout would work

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Dude. I don’t know if I can cram that must badass into a blog post. I’m up for a challenge though, haha. I’ll add him to the list!

  95. Rob says:

    I know you just did tracer but id like to suggest hanzo, if you feel like doing more overwatch

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Probably going to be a while before we revisit overwatch, but hanzo would definitely be a good choice when we do!

  96. Echo Charlie says:

    Howdy! I’m looking to mix and use Oscar Mike and Whiskey Foxtrot from Battleborn. Not only workout wise, but the charisma they have, while not very sane, is inspiring for their allies and I can’t help but want to gain that aswell! Thanks for what every help you can give dude!

    • Echo Charlie says:

      Now that I think about it, you could probably just create those guys or other from Battleborn for everyone, huh? In that I retract and now offer them as requests! (Not sure if I can do that, but oh well).

  97. The 666th legion says:

    I would very much like to see doom guy on this character list. I know he is a lot like master chief and you already covered him. But doom guy is more focused on close combat and melee while chief is more balanced.

  98. Corn-Fed Monster says:

    Hello. I’m pretty new to the site, and looking for a good character (goal) to meet and beat. I’m a pretty solid guy weighing at 238, and standing at 5’11. Any suggestion on who to possibly follow? Video games aren’t exactly a big thing on the farm, but my buddies got me into it, so I hope to see and learn from what you wrote. A buddy said to leave a suggestion for a character, so how bout Luigi from Super Mario/ Smash Bros.?

  99. Eupho says:

    This might be a silly question but here goes:

    My friend and I are looking to start up with a work out plan each from here (these are all awesome by the way many thanks for all the hard work you have put into making your blog and these workout programs, you’re legendary). I noticed on some of the posts you have a “Style” header to denote if the plan is a station or a circuit style, and some do not. So my question is: Are the posts that do not have a notation meant to be done as a circuit style workout? I just wanted to make sure before I ended up doing the workouts in a way they weren’t planned, as I know the order and structure can greatly affect performance and gains.

    Also, I apologize if this was covered in another post. Either way thank you much for your hard work and also answering questions as the come in. Lastly, again thank you so much for you efforts and hard work you have put into these workouts and posts. Take care, and keep being awesome.

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Hey, thanks for the comment, it’s not a silly question at all!

      Yes, some of the older workouts have a lack of formatting or direction on circuit vs. station style workouts. Generally speaking, the best rule of thumb is if it involves free weights (barbells or dumbbells,) it’s a station style workout, and if it’s mostly bodyweight, it’s a circuit style workout.

      I do mean to go back and revamp some of the old workouts a bit, thanks for reminding me to put that on my to-do list in the near future, haha, and thanks for reading! Let me know if I can help you and your friend any more!

      Dan

  100. Renegade with a match says:

    Can you tell me who falls under the saboteur class among the rogues?

  101. Kaiser93 says:

    I wanted to ask a question, what exactly makes a character qualify under one of the three archetypes? For example, Tracer is a thin, limber character with time manipulation at her disposal to flank enemies, yet you have her listed under “Rogues” instead of “Fighters”
    Then Connor Kenway is a pretty built dude with explosive power and strength, yet no sacrifice in agility; but you have him listed under “Fighters” – doesn’t he qualify as a “Rogue” because he’s in between a “Tank” and “Fighter”?
    I always assumed that the more agile and limber characters were all of the fighting type; and that the bigger and stronger characters were all under “Tanks”. Naturally, that led me to believe that anyone labeled as a rogue would be someone with agility, but still have enough strength or just raw explosive energy to be close to a tank character.
    Can you clear up why some characters are counted as something different than what someone would naturally assume?

    • DaRatmastah says:

      Rogue = slender, lithe characters. Typically in fantasy RPG type settings a rogue is an assassin or a ranger, or someone who is opportunistic in combat. For the sake of physical fitness, you’re talking a light, fast build.

      Fighters are the “in between.” They’re heavy enough to be “in combat” rather than just sniping from the edges like a rogue, but they don’t have quite the size or power of a tank.

      Tanks are big, heavy, and strong, and don’t care as much about being agile.

      So basically what you classify as a “rogue” I classify as a “fighter,” and vice-versa. The classes are based somewhat loosely on Dungeons and Dragons archetypes, with some MMORPG/Action RPG standards thrown in there.

  102. Charlotte says:

    Hi! I was wondering if you could suggest a build for me, as I’m kind of lost when it comes to deciding which character would fit my abilities best. I’m a 5’5, 100 pound, 16 year old girl. I would say despite being very unfit (that’s why I’m here lol) I’m fairly agile and I’m not a terrible fighter. I’m in love with the Assassin’s Creed series, Ratonhnhake:ton is my favorite character. However I feel like his build and abilities wouldn’t fit me at all.

    It seems as if the Rogue build would fit me best but I’m debating between the Ezio, Faith Connors (I also love Mirror’s Edge), and Lara Croft workouts. I’m leaning towards either Faith or Ezio, just because they seem to compliment my strengths best. I also love the characters. I’d really appreciate it if you could tell me what you think! I’m very, very unfit so with whatever I pick I’ll have to start really small.

    Thanks so much!!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      First off: Fantastic taking that first step to getting in shape. It can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start (which is why this blog is here!)

      Personally, I’d recommend Faith. Very little equipment required, relatively straightforward routine! Starting small is GOOD! It’s better to do a little of something every day than it is to do a HUGE workout once every two weeks. =P

      If you’ve got any more questions, or want a more detailed writeup, hit me up at dan@beagamecharacter.com Thanks for reading, and for commenting!

      • Charlotte says:

        Wow thanks for the fast reply, I’ll get started on the Faith workout as soon as I can. I don’t want to make you make a detailed writeup for me, that’s too much work for you!! But I really appreciate the offer 🙂

        Also, will this help me bulk up a little bit? I’m basically a walking stick right now so I need to gain about 10 pounds.

  103. Baby Doc says:

    Hey Dan! I noticed that a lot of military had posted questions, a majority of which are either Corpsman or Medics! My uncle is a Corpsman and I look up to him a lot, so I was wondering how to emulate him. He’s lean, but has a certain spark of crazy shining in his eyes which has me thinking he’s a saboteur, but I’m not sure since he’s also a SARC. Any suggestions or tips?

    • Doc of Devils says:

      Aerobic exercises such as the Shepard workout or Solid Snake workout is what most of us Corpsmen follow, later on some add or make up a new workout to follow. SARC’s are the guys who run with special operations (Recon, SEALS, Dive teams, EOD) so a little crazy is to be expected. Sorry for butting in Dan.

      • DaRatmastah says:

        Totally fine, you clearly have more experience in the matter than I do! =D I’d definitely agree, going with Shepard or Snake would probably be best, Baby Doc!

    • DaRatmastah says:

      See my reply to “Doc of Devil’s” reply to you. =P

  104. Novice Soldier says:

    Hey Dan! I’m wanting to emulate the Soldiers/Halberdiers from the Fire Emblem series, but I’m not exactly sure how to start with it. Do you have any tips or suggestions to help? Thanks alot dude. 🙂

    • Novice Soldier says:

      I just found Kilik, and the explanation on polearm weapons, so I’ll follow that for now. Still willing to take any help though!

  105. Insomniac Investigator says:

    Any tips on who to follow for a Sherlock Holmes-esk build? I’ve got fighting style (Bartitsu) and thought process (Lateral as hell) but I’m kinda stuck workout wise.
