After an excruciating voting process (kidding), here’s GameSkinny’s list of top 10 green video game characters. Want to get in on the action? Check out how you can make 5 well-known geeky green costumes yourself.

 

#10 Blanka (Street Fighter)

With his green skin and long red hair, we can’t help but compare him to a giant, angry leprechaun. Blanka puts us in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit! (Photo courtesy of Nicky’s Photo Gallery @ Tokyo Game Show)

 

#9 Luigi & Yoshi (Mario Series)

The ultimate video game duo, these two characters together create a big, green, Bowser-fighting machine.

 

#8 Link (Legends of Zelda)

Despite being in the limelight for nearly 30 years, Link will always stay true to his signature look: a green tunic and long hat. (Costume by Laovaan)

 

#7 Bulbasaur (Pokémon)

Adorned in lovely shades of greens and blues, Bulbasaur is arguably the cutest Pokémon, ever! (Image via The Crafty Duck)

 

#6 Master Chief (HALO)

The most predominant character in the HALO series, the quiet but deadly Master Chief is never seen without his green armor and helmet. (Photo Via Post Game Lobby – cosplayer unknown)

 

#5 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For those of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s, we couldn’t forget our green childhood heroes: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo!

 

#4 Green Lantern

He’s out to save the universe – and any character modeled after Ryan Reynolds is fine by us!

 

#3 Ysera (World of Warcraft)

Her skin is covered in sparkly emerald scales, and when she’s not in her natural form, you can bet that she’ll still be wearing green! (Costume by UpdateRequired)

 

#2 Reptile (Mortal Kombat)

His scaly, green look has evolved over the years, but he’ll always be the ultimate green bad guy.  (Cosplayer unknown)

 

#1 The Hulk

Last but not least, it’s everyone’s favorite green giant – the Hulk!  (Image via BadHaven)

 

Other honorable mentions: Thrall from World of Warcraft, the 1UP mushrooms from the Mario series, Rydia from Final Fantasy 4, Jade from Mortal Kombat, Chie Satonaka from Persona 4, Silabus from .Hack//GU, and the Prince from Katamari Damacy.
