A soldier in the US miltary, Nathan was infected with the Chimeran virus, however he survived and gained terrfic powers which saw him lead the British resistance against the Chimeran invasion of British. He eventually succeeded in saving Britain.

His most recent outing saw him chase after the Cintamani Stone which led to him getting into a mess bigger than anything he expected to fall in. However, being the slick adventurer that he is, Nathan ended up saving the world and finding and placing the Cintamani Stone where it should be. Nathan’s also got the company of some of the hottest and most beautiful ladies to have appeared in any videogame and he handles them with as much ease as he handles obstacles and enemies.

Favorite Hero Hobby: Doing unusual things and fighting surreal enemies.
Appeared in: Metal Gear Franchise
We don’t need to say much about Solid Snake. It will suffice to say that he is someone who’s been with the Playstation brand right from the start and his final outing which was in the PS3, Metal Gear Solid: Guns of the Patriots, is an experience that any self-respecting gamer can’t miss.
When it comes to being a hero, noone does it better than this man. “I am no Hero”, is just an example of how modest he is.
Favorite Hero Hobby: Killing Greek Gods
Appeared in: God of War series
A guy who kills Gods like mortals, prides himself in ripping apart living beings and has a RAGE that’s bigger than all of Olympus. Need we say more?
If there’s one hero who’s all CHAOS, it’s gotta be the God of War!
