Top 5 with Lisa Foiles: Top 5 Chainsaw Wielders

Sniper Team 4:
Marcus did come up with the idea for the chainsaw bayonet in the books, so he is the poster child for it.

Well technically Tai was the first one to take a chainsaw to Locust hide. After that Marcus told his dad and they came out with the Mark 2 Lancer soon after. Tai should've put a patient on the idea I guess.

Heh. I might be late to the party with this, but I just realized the mars rover looks kinda like Wall-E. And..its probably just as lonely by now ;_;

I'm glad Doom Guy won, Doom was my first FPS and still stands up today.

C.S.Strowbridge:
I have a theory. The more we see Kevin in an episode, the better it is.

That's why I call this show: Top 5 with Kevin.

Aww, no chainsaw maniacs from Zombies Ate My Neighbors? I thought that would've been there for sure.

Who could forget the delightful chainsaw wielding crazies who first show up in a level called "Chainsaw Hedgemaze Mayhem" and are damn near unstoppable, the best you could hope for at that point was that you had a bunch of potions saved up to turn yourself into a beast, or keep freezing them with the extinguisher, or popping a distraction clown and running like hell. Of course then they could just cut right through the hedges and run your ass down. So many fond memories of that 16bit chainsaw sound.

piscian:
NO Evil Dead/ Army of darkness? Are you high?

Technically...that was a movie. I think that disqualified it. This is VIDEO GAME chainsaw weilders.

CAPTCHA: mad hatter

No...that was a book character and/or comic book villian. Take your pick.

Whichever Resident Evil game had the fewest escort missions. That game was the best of the series. Sure, RE4 (and RE1) haf my best memories and was the most playable without being potentially racist. But that escort was brutally annoying.

Good list this week miss. Funny stuff.

jdarksun:
Doomguy! Aka Flynn "Fly" Taggart aka John "Reaper" Grimm.

Yeah, ever since the DOOM movie (which also had a chainsaw), I've reffered to the Player Character as John "Reaper" Grimm.

that song... no that song.. weeps a little...

I remember the Doom Chainsaw.. and I am awful at Gears of War.. I should when I want to saw and a saw when I want to shoot. Premature sawation!

PedroSteckecilo:
Dawwww Kevin...

Also, Chainsaw dude in Resident Evil 4 is named Dr. Salvador isn't he?

I'll say. I don't know why Lisa didn't call him that. The name shows up if you earn/examine his bottlecap, but even if you don't that's what everybody calls him.

Pretty good list, I thought of Jack from Madworld as soon as I saw the topic.
Madworld is one of the few games I got for the wii. It is a shame the game wasn't more popular.

No he's in games too.
I know of 3 console games, played em all. Sadly not all were worth playing. Haven't tried the portable ones.

Ash Williams is the king of the chainsaw, games or otherwise :P

So Blade Wolf is in the intro section of the video but doesn't make the main list? I'm calling shenanigans!

I mean, just look at him:

You know what? Very good list. There's only one thing missing though. The Biggyman, from Splatterhouse.


He's pretty much the only logical step up from the Chainsaw guy from Resident Evil. But with two. Two times the chainsaws is two times the fun. Then again, having two different bag wearing horror monsters wielding chainsaws might have been redundant.
Also, the Chainsaw Broadsword from Monster Hunter Tri. Do I even need to say anything else? It's a Chainsaw, and a broadsword. That's more best of both worlds than every season of Hannah Montana combined

I wouldn't feel to sad for Madworld, Jack did get a pseudo sequel in Anarchy Reigns. Granted, wasn't that great. Mutiplayer crap, wah-hey.

Second that, it's a robot dog, with a chainsaw!!
Also by Platinum curiously. If they made a full game out of him I would buy it, the DLC was definetly worth it.

Pretty sure the Chainsaw guy from RE4 was called Dr Salvador...I hated that guy eurgh. And the two woman in the Mercenaries level.
You always nearly peed yourself when you heard the chainsaw.

Anyway, I liked Alisa from Tekken 6. Chainsaws came out of her arms and she was adorable!

Glad Doom is number 1. Doom Guy's chainsaw is pretty much the quintessential FPS chainsaw experience (yes, even today) and, for its time, was the most jawdropping, disgusting and badass thing you could do in a videogame.

See a pinky demon? Equip chainsaw and proceed to brush its teeth to the music of RNNRNNRNNR-NAAAAAAAARRR-GLLBLBLBGLGLBLBGBL!!!

Not to nitpick, but in all actuality a chainsaw is not very effective at sculpting bushes. The wood and leaves would get caught in the chain and then in the gears. No, what you want Lisa is a hedge trimmer which uses a reciprocating toothed edge which can.... okay, I'll stop.

I like Sweet Tooth's chain saw. Mostly because he uses it as a projectile.

It says it right there on the page. GAMES. Evil Dead isn't a game, it's a movie, or series of movies. This is for characters whose origins are from games.

I didn't see anything about it needing to be a original character.

Endocrom:
I just found out there have been six Evil Dead games, I have played none

The Evil Dead (1984) for Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum
Evil Dead: Hail to the King (2000) for PlayStation, Dreamcast, and PC
Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick (2003) for PlayStation 2 and Xbox
Evil Dead: Regeneration (2005) for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC
Army of Darkness: Defense (2011) for iOS and Android
Evil Dead: The Game (2011) for iOS

What with the curse of licensed games they probably weren't worth mentioning though.

If any of those games were good, let me know.

Hail to the king was only fun if you really like resident evil games
Fist full of boomstick is not great but enjoyable
Regeneration is actually great.
Army of Darkness: Defense is a tower defense game. It's ok.

I dont know anything about the others.

I didn't anything about it needed to be a original character.

Then obviously you don't know how to read.
1) Origins. Not original. Note the lack of "al" in what I said? Good. That means where the character came from. Originality had nothing to do with what I said.
2) These lists are for VIDEO GAMES. Not movie characters who may of had a game made for them well after the fact.

Let's see... Oh I don't know, perhaps right in the beginning of the video itself? Or, maybe every video in this series, as well as it's descriptions. Here's a fun game for ya. Count how many times, in all of the Top 5 videos, a Non-game character was featured in a list of game-only characters?

Done yet? Here, I'll make it easy for you buddy. Zero. Zip. Nadda. Common sense alone could of told you that if, you know, paid attention.

It doesn't say that in the description or any where in the video.

Huh, then I wonder what it is that I heard within the first 10 seconds of the video
"Top 10 chainsaws in video games"
Oh. You're illiterate AND deaf, my apologies then. It's a wonder you can even post though I must say.
