    1Link's Green Tunic (Legend of Zelda)
    Link is arguably the most readily recognizable video game character along with the Mario Bros. or Pacman. His green tunic is that very reason. Sure, there have been variants to his green, such as special armor or upgrades to it, but, his base green is what fans and nonfans alike would easily recognize

  • 2Mario and Luigi's jumper (Super Mario Bros.)
    These plumbers don't wear ties. Their suspendered clothing and caps have gone unchanged ever since they first appeared in Mario Bros. for the most part.

  • 3Mega Man's blue armor (Mega Man)
    Is there any explanation needed? MegaMan, MegaMan X..he always begins with his classic powder blue.

  • 4Laura Croft's shorts and tank top (Tomb Raider)
    Sorry, it's LARA
    The Tomb Raider series employed "strategic" camera angles to make sure you know very detail about Laura Croft's wardrobe. Even the Tomb Raider movie stuck to the basics, and the way too small khaki shorts and green (or blue) tank top is the most memorable appearance of Ms. Croft

  • 5Samus Aran's Varia Suit (Metroid)
    Us old-school gamers remember the first time we saw Samus without HER armor, and were stunned when we found out our hero was a heroine! But, regardless if she is in Zero Suit, or Varia Suit, we recognize her best in Varia Suit from the first incarnation of Metroid the best.

  • 6Ash Ketcham's outfit (Pokemon)
    Sorry for the confusion with my first response.
    Great point. He did gain his iconoic look in the Anime, and had not-so-many actual video game appearances as, "Ash Ketcham." Great suggestion and correction.
    Regardless, gamers and fans of Pokemon and non gamers or anime fans still recognize that ballcap and jacket. Good point raised, though.
    Ash is anime though, it's Red in the games...

  • 7Halo body armor (Halo series)

  • 8Scorpion/Sub-Zero's ninja gear (Mortal Kombat)

  • 9Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad's hooded cloak (Assassin's Creed)

  • 10Ken and Ryu's Gi (Street Fighter)

  • 11Cloud Strife's SOLDIER uniform (Final Fantasy VII) suggested byJames Ryan
    I'm almost ashamed to admit that I have EVER played a Final Fantasy game. I'm a Legend of Zelda nut, and Chrono Trigger fan. Somehow, this 33 year old man NEVER managed to play Final Fantasys!! Thanks for the suggestion becasue I know that, with that game's huge following, there was something I was missing but didn't have the knowledge to say what

  • 12Solid Snake's gear and eyepatch (Metal Gear Solid)

  • 13Sonic's shoes suggested byAnnoyingFrenzy
    Awesome. I couldn't think of a way to recommend Sonic. Excellent sugestion!
