Gameroween 2015: Video Game Characters that make good costumes (Ragna the Bloodedge)



ANIME! If there’s anything crazier than video games it’s anime people, and it’s down right insanity when they combine like the BlazBlue series. This game doesn’t have a shortage of larger than life characters but the main character is probably the best the bunch: Ragna the Bloodedge. Now when you look at this guy you automatically think “Crybaby emo whose got to save / destroy the world because reasons” but actually he’s completely opposite of that sometime male anime hero trope. Instead he’s the most normal anime hero I’ve ever seen, a guy just thrown into weird anime situations and he’s doing the best to deal with it. Sure he’s got an dangerous, evil weapon infused on his body but really that not his fault. Most of the time he just wants to be left alone but he keeps meeting weirdos, people who want to kill him for money, people who want to kill him for power, people who want to kill him for science, most just want to kill him so he does his best to kill them back – with various degrees of success. Sure he’s not perfect but as stylize and powerful anime characters go he’s not bad. Plus his nickname is bloodedge and he’s got a little vampire always following him and she’s lives in various Halloween realities. So he might be over qualified as a costume choice despite his overall normal nature.
