10 Video Game Characters Imagined as 10 Candies

10 Video Game Characters Imagined as 10 Candies

Was there ever a video game character that you just wanted to eat up? Now’s the time to realize that high and mighty fantasy, because there are just some candies that were made for them.

We break out our deepest, sugar-laiden thinking caps and delve deeply into the gooey, mushy hearts of just what every gaming secretly embodies from your home’s candy jar. Take a tantalizing look at the very sweetest deals our very sweetest game characters are just made for.

 

There’s simply nothing matching the taste of the colorful rainbow that is Pikmin. Nearly every shade of everything awesome, tiny, and deliciously adorable, their after fruit and proud of it. The citizens of Koppai should certainly be thankful for it.

 

You always tell yourself that caramel stick could last as long as you wanted it to, but alas, it disappears as fast as any Andrew Ryan led utopia. Its sugary goodness is just too delectable to leave, but before you know it, there’s a price to be paid from it with an incoming dentist’s drill.

 

Good lord, is there anything pinker than Nintendo’s super tough pink puff? Luckily for our humble taste buds there is. About as puffy and airy as our little rotund friend, cotton candy seems to bring back the kid in all of us.

 

You thought we were going to shoe-horn Yoshi into this one, now didn’t you? No sir, SEGA’s long-lost mascot may not have laid them, but he worthily enough to roll this chocolaty feast. It’s simply a shame Cadbury eggs only come once a year.

 

Kratos has slain nearly every living (and even undead) thing in Greek mythology right about now, but even his square jaw must crack under the mightiest of hard candies.

 

Lumas are fat, cuddly, stupidly adorable creatures so damn cute you just want to pinch them. If you did, they’d no doubt be a starburst of flavor rivaling any supernova of juicy goodness.

 

If puns are these sappy puns are a crime to you already, than we’d gladly be locked behind whatever sugary bars a nice Payday jail would make.

 

Earthbound’s Jeff is certainly everything nerdy in the best possible light, and his badge of expertise with everything technological is nothing but a sweet bonus for any kid adventurer.

 

 

Castlevania’s Dracula chilled the hearts of men. We surmise that the Prince of Darkness’s brooding, emo schtick would win over far more people cracking a sugary whip of flavor rather than. . . you know. Flavor is everything.

 

How many licks does it take to get the center of a Tootsi Pop? We still have no idea after all these years, but Blathers would no doubt be right there to tell us once we woke him up. Come to think of it, the sly little bird man would probably count every lick until we finally gave up on his lectures.

 

 

                              Be still, our sugary hearts.

From the time he sat down to play Duck Hunt and Super Mario Bros. on his sisters' dusty NES one afternoon, video-games would entice Tim's mind like the One Ring to Gollum. He believes video games are art and that Okami and Shadow of the Colossus are among them. A communications major at the University of Washington, he's holding out for the day his love of all things virtual turns into a full-time gig.
