So I wasn't sure who to draw now I've started on Namco, as I'm very familiar with their old franchises but not so much with any of their new ones. So I started a poll on the NinDB forums to find each person's Top 10 characters. Why shouldn't I get some more responses from here? :)

The rules:
1. Pick your top 10 Namco characters. The order doesn't matter.
2. If the game isn't named after them, make sure to include the name of the game/series as well.
3. You may only pick ONE character per series in your list.
4. It doesn't have to be the main character, but it's more likely to be drawn if it's at least one of the leading stars.
5. If certain characters get lots of votes, I shall draw them up!

You don't have to love the games, or even to have played them. They just have to be your favourite or most interesting characters or character designs from Namco games.

I am posting and regularly updating the results here:…

If you can't think of 10, check that list and maybe just pick some that you like the look of or you think would be a challenge for me to draw! I need a good challenge y'know!

You could pick another 5 from the chart to fill out your list, but I think I know who the top 10 for this poll will be now. If you do, I will record your results and they may be used in the future!

You can only have one per series. Do you want to make any substitutions for your Soul Calibur and Tekken characters?
albertojz356's avatar
Yea switch out Nina and Cassandra for the Valkyrie and Sophie (Tales of)

You must have posted the same time I did as I didn't see your update until you replied to me :)

My choices...
*King of the Cosmos (Katamari)
*Pooka (from Dig Dug)
*One of the bug enemies from Galaga. (Or one of the boss bugs from Galaga '88.)
* Mappy the micro mouse police.
* The guy from Rolling Thunder.

And that's all I can thing of at the time. Probably not very good suggestions. ^^;

No no, all good choices, and all on that list (except King of All Cosmos, which surprised me - I thought he'd be very popular!)

If you want to add 5 more, pick ones that will be a challenge for me to draw. Or vote up some female characters! They're woefully under-represented here.
Beau-Skunk's avatar
Yeah, I'm surprised more people are chosing the Prince over the King. (The King was awesome.)

And yeah we could use more female characters. Maybe one of the ones from Tekkan, or something. (Honestly, I've never played that game, I'm really bad at "button-masher"-style fighters.)

I would've suggested Mrs. Pac Man, or the Ghost Witch (an obscure villain from Pac Man 2 for SNES/Genesis) but you said only one character per series. ^^;

Dig Dug
Wonder Momo
Cassandra Alexandra (SoulCalibur)
Pole Position
Rolling Thunder
Sky Kid
Mappy Land

It's Top 10 characters rather than Top 10 games, so I've dished out your votes accordingly... Except Pole Position. As far as I can tell, that's just an F-1 racer.

Sorry, I was in a rush and didn't remember the names-- or if they had names-- in some of those older games. XD

And I just have a soft spot for Pole Position-- I played that one (badly) as a kid before I was even into video games.

Oh yes, I'm also very happy to see Bravoman getting some love XD

Aww, then pick 10 ladies! The voting has turned into a bit of a sausage fest!

I've never been too huge on Namco characters or franchises, sure they have a lot but they never reach the same level as Nintendo, Capcom, Sega or Konami. But I'll do my best to pick my favorites and if not a full ten, I'll round it out with one's from that list. I won't include Pac-Man since you drew him already.

1. Klonoa (Klonoa)
2. Talim (Soul Calibur)
3. Taizo Hori (Dig-Dug)
4. The Prince (Katamari Demacy)
5. Taikos (Taiko Drum Master)
6. Kilik (Soul Calibur)

and just to round out the list

7. Mrs. Pac-Man
8. Lloyd Irving (Tales of Symphonia)
9. Galaga
10. Mokujin (Tekken)
