You can expect ridiculous things to happen in games, people falling off cliffs to their deaths, parachuting straight into a rock and shooting guns that make people dance. But what you’re not prepared for are the outrageous costumes in games.
Here are 10 of the most outrageous costumes in games that I came across:
1. Steep – The Giraffe costume
Steep is an open world game where you can ski, fly in a wingsuit, snowboard and paraglide across the epic mountains of the Alps and Alaska as a… Giraffe. There are other mainstream looking costumes to equip but this has got to be the funniest! I especially love its crazy eyes and the fact that it squeaks like a toy when it hits a tree or any other object.
2. Saints Row 4 – The toilet bowl costume
In Saints Row 4, you play the president of the United States fighting off an alien invasion while running the notoriously powerful street gang, 3rd Street Saints. There are tons of ridiculous outfits to choose from, or you could just head out as a toilet!
Mix and match your outfits in game and come up with all sorts of hilarious creations like this one:
3. Resident Evil Revelations –Chris Redfield’s sexy sailor costume
Adding comic relief to the horror game, Resident Evil Revelations, is Chris Redfield’s smoking hot sailor outfit. To unlock the outfit, players need to buy the rocket-launcher in the Raid mode shop and do 100,000 worth of damage to an enemy. They can then proceed to flaunt it in all different modes in game.
4. Ninja Gaiden – Rachel’s dominatrix costume
Speaking about smoking hot outfits, Rachel from Ninja Gaiden struts around in a questionable dominatrix outfit while somersaulting off walls, doing double flips and fighting the badies. All while trying to keep everything together.
5. Heroes of the Storm – Star Princess costume
I’m not sure which direction Blizzard was taking Li Ming in this costume. For a wizard who unleashes devastating spells with the arcane forces of the universe , the star princess outfit is a joke. It makes Li Ming look like she works for a low budget circus trying to pull off a space theme but failing miserably. Blizzard, please, stop.
6. Dead Rising 4 – The Shark costume
If Frank West ever gets tired of playing dress up as a pirate, wrestler or leprechaun, he can simply swap to his trusty shark outfit and chomp all the zombies away!
7. Resident Evil 6 – Sherry’s school uniform costume
The lady is no longer a child, she can fend for herself and doesn’t need to be wearing the skimpiest school uniform in the entire world to kick some baddies ass. However, if you still want a piece of the sass she brings in it, complete any stage by playing as Sherry and finish it with an A or S rank.
8. Nioh – White Tiger
While technically not an ‘outfit’, we thought White Tiger was worth including. It looks like a mutated mangled cat. With a torch in one eye and the ability to fly (Gah, I’m thinking of flying cockroaches), it is truly one ugly cat worthy of nightmares. If I was ever considering getting a cat, I’m thinking twice about it now.
9. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – Anna’s squid costume
You will not be able to look at calamari the same way again after watching Anna Williams fight in a squid outfit. The tentacle flailing outfit is a collaboration between the manga industry and team Tekken to design stylish bonus costumes for the game. I wouldn’t label it stylish but it sure is whacky.
10. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Ezio’s Radien costume
As a tribute to the Metal Gear series, players can unlock Cyborg ninja character, Raiden for Ezio in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Players unlock the outfit by finishing all training sessions in the Animus Virtual Training Program with at least a Bronze Medal. I’ll admit it’s a pretty cool look for Ezio because he retains his facial features in it but an odd look to spot in the 16th century. Wrong era, buddy.
