Remember Killer Instinct? At the time that game was all the rage with it's over the top violence....I remember all the petitions and anti video game activists then...they had no idea what was instore fo them a few years later with games like Grand Theft Auto.
Anyway back on track, Killer Instinct had the stereotypical boxer character that was made famous by Street Fighters' Balrog.
T.J Combo comes from a poor but hard working family, he dreams of becoming a boxer and making lots of money and fame, he dreams are crushed when both his arm arms are mangled in a bad bout.
Lucky for T.J his sister went to college and got a job at Ultratech, where he gets his new "magic arms". He convinces his sister to get him cybernetic arms to help him realize his dreams and help his poor momma out. T.J, with the help of his bionic arms becomes the champ but after pushing his luck T.J's secret is discovered and just like Balrog he's stripped of his title and banned from boxing.
Luckily T.J gets another chance in the Killer Instinct tournament held by...
wait for it...
Ultratech...Dun dun duuuuh!

Heavy D! from SNK's King of Fighters 98 roster...kinda lame character that was whipped up on the fly IMO.
A failed professional boxer, Heavy D! kept his form fighting on the streets. One day he received an invitation to the '94 KoF tournament. He teamed up with his friends Lucky and Brian and entered. Even though they failed, Heavy D! wanted to try again the next year. Unfortunately Brian's team went to the Superbowl so they couldn't participate in KoF.

When EA Sports signed Tiger Woods to work with their golf teams on golf games in 1998, they planned a transition so that the PGA Tour Golf series would take on the "Tiger Woods" name. The evolution of the series has been continual since 1990, so the gaming roots of the franchise are 18 years old. The first version of the game to bear Tiger's name was Tiger Woods '99, released in 1998. The title of the game was subsequently changed in 1999 to Tiger Woods PGA Tour X, with X being the year of the season the game corresponds to. Currently eleven games have been released under the Woods license.Very Impressive Tiger...just like your golfing skills!

Jax was the first African-American character in the Mortal Kombat series and made his debut in the second game. He is portrayed as an archetypical American hero. In the chain of command of the Special Forces, he is Sonya Blade's direct superior, and clearly the catalyzing force of Sonya's impulsiveness. Jax is clear-headed, careful and always keeping a watch on what his men are doing, but when the need arises, he is a beast on the battlefield with the attitude and ferocity of a lion. He unscrupulously makes use of the most advanced technology to improve both himself and his unit.

I may be in the minority here but I think Devastator looks awful, What the hell is that thing for a head!?
As far as The Fallen, it looks totally out of place with what we've seen in the movies so far, the Fallen looks like an H.R. Giger creation....which would make it the coolest transformer of the whole lot! And what does the Fallen transform into an oral B toothbrush?!

The REAL Devastator!

Having a name like Birdie makes you a badass by default... Of course his Street Fighter 1 appearance wasn't anything special, but when Capcom re-invented him in the SFA series; he was undeniably a memorable character and definitely "stood out" among the others. His unrealistic proportions also have a lot to do with his overall design, and are as effective as they are hilarious...

Keeping with the Metal Gear Solid saga, Drebin is the latest African American cast member who assists Snake in his mission. Drebin is a mysterious individual who never seems to be fully aligned with any faction in the series, his services are rather shady but do come in extremely helpful thru MGS4, as he unlocks ID tagged weapons and equipment useable for Snake.
If they ever do make a Metal Gear Solid movie Wesley Snipes is a no brainer to play Simon Pheonix...oops I mean Drebin!
Ladies and Gentlemen I think this movie could give Dragon Wars a run for the worst movie of all time award!
