  1. Does Solid Snake count? I know that he was inspired by Snake Plissken, but i believe that he counts, they resemble each other in Hairstyle, eye-patch, cigarette addiction.

  2. Man, I didn't even see the Johnny Cage connection. That was pretty obvious when they showed the split nut punch.

  3. Bruce Lee and Law from tekken, if you didn't already cover it, yes I watched the video, no I did not pay too much attention because the voices tend to bore me, though i heard tekken in there at least once. But did not hear law.

  4. who is that old man with white hair and gloving eyes? 7:42–7:45 Can someone tell me the show or character name?

  5. It's not just Ryder the whole GTA SA cast where inspired by artist. CJ looked like Dr.Dre, Sweet looked like Ice Cube and Big Smoke where ether supposed to look like Biggie or Nate Dogg.

  6. I feel like tons of the characters and events from GTA games are based on things from crime, gangster, and drug movies.

  7. Don’t know if this qualifies or not, but after Angelina Jolie was cast as Lara Croft, they started to look pretty damn similar.
    Also, no one gives a shit about Nico’s heritage. He still resembles whatever Russian dude they named, whether Nico’s Serbian or not. Dumbasses

  8. I know that this video is old, but reading comments makes me laugh AF 😀 People that wrote those comments are enough stupid to not know, that Mashkov was playing serbian sniper in Behind Enemy Lines movie, and Niko Bellic based on that serbian sniper from that movie. And when people gonna learn on their mistakes…

  9. solid snake as kurt russell's snake plissken, obviously…
    or the original Simon Belmont as Ronnie James Dio
    Any flat-topped 80s and 90s action game hero as Arnold Schwarzenegger

  10. I know this video was uploaded before Splatoon was released, I think the Squid Sisters were the inspiration of Puffy AmiYumi.

  11. Nathan Drake particially inspired by Johnny Knoxville?No way!Nathan's too cute for that,unless you mean he was younger when they modeled Nathan.

  12. So many celebs missing from this list! Jennifer Connelly in Clock Tower, Cameron Diaz in Silent Hill 2, and Leo DiCaprio from Code Veronica.

  13. In my opinion Johnny Knoxville doesn’t resemble Nathan Drake at all he looks way more lyk his voice actor Nolan North !
