7 Video Game Characters that Would Look Great on a T-Shirt


As many gamers know, there’s nothing like the feeling of getting a t-shirt inspired by their favourite video game. It’s great to be able to show off your favourite game and characters and let others know you’re a huge fan.

Sometimes, though, it can be hard to decide what t-shirt design you should choose, especially when there’s so many out there. So why not check out this company that makes custom t-shirts and have something completely original made up? Here are ten of the best video game characters that would look awesome with a totally unique design on your custom tee.

1. Link – The Legend of Zelda

There are so many cool characters from The Legend of Zelda, but Link is the most recognizable – he’s the hero, after all. Appearing in over twenty video game titles, Link has a number of appearances and styles to choose from. He also comes with some truly iconic weaponry, like the Hylian Shield, Master Sword, and the bow which he is often characterized with.

2. Master Chief – Halo

Despite never seeing his face, Master Chief has an iconic look sporting his Mjolnir armour that has come to be recognized by fans everywhere. Even a simple silhouette or outline of the armour would make a great addition to a graphic tee honouring the Halo series.

3. Mario – Super Mario Bros.

Everyone knows Mario, the super plumber who is always saving his Princess Peach. The cartoonish design of Mario makes it easy to get him looking good on any t-shirt. You’ll probably need a red t-shirt or at least red accents to the design in order to truly do him justice.

4. Pikachu – Pokémon

This furry yellow rodent has been capturing hearts since the early 2000s. No one will be asking, “Who’s that Pokémon?” when they look at a shirt that has his shape on it. The other great thing about Pikachu is that he can look both cool and cute, so you can choose a look that best suits your mood.

5. Mega Man – Mega Man

Mega Man (or Rockman in Japan) is an iconic blue robot that has appeared in a number of video game since 1987. His iconic design is characterized by bright colours and a hand that’s in the shape of a blaster gun. He’s got some pretty cool poses that would look great on a shirt.

6. Samus Aran – Metroid

Samus is one badass chick who doesn’t need to show off that she’s a girl just to get attention. Whether wearing her power suit or sporting her zero-suit Samus look, she’ll look good on any tee.

7. Lara Croft – Tomb Raider

Despite her simple look (tank top with cargo shorts), Lara has made a name for herself throughout the years with a slew of video games and movie adaptations. Her dual-wielding gun pose is quite iconic.

There’s plenty more to choose from that didn’t make it to this list. Pick whoever your favourite character is and make sure to have fun with it.
