Eleven of the Most Iconic Moustaches in Gaming

FEATURE | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

For those of you who don't know, over the course of this month a little something known as Movember has been running.

Eleven of the Most Iconic Moustaches in Gaming

The premise is pretty simple: a bunch of guys grow out their moustaches (or, in some cases, beards) in order to raise awareness about prostate cancer and a number of other men's health issues. In the spirit of the season, we've decided to have a look at some of the most memorable, iconic, and downright incredible facial hair in the world of gaming. 

Saxton Hale (Team Fortress 2)

Eleven of the Most Iconic Moustaches in Gaming

The first entry on our list is everybody's favorite hyper-manly Australian, Saxton Hale. The CEO of Mann Co., the business behind all the bloodshed in Team Fortress 2; Hale is practically a walking personification of testosterone - he routinely hunts and kills dangerous animals with his bare hands, property damage is an ordinary part of the day, and he'll stop at nothing until every last hippie in the world has been exterminated. In this case, the moustache only serves to further his image as a hilarious example of manliness taken way, way too far. 

Mario (Super Mario series)

Adding Mario to the list seemed like a no-brainer. After all, he's the most instantly recognizeable character in gaming, identifiable as much for his signature blue and red outfit as he is for his facial hair. Let's be honest here:  the moustache is an irrepleacable part of who he is, and he looks more than a little terrifying without it.

Dr. Eggman (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Eleven of the Most Iconic Moustaches in Gaming

When I was younger, one could usually identify who the villain of a game or cartoon was based solely on their appearance. So much for the old adage of never judging a book by its cover. Eggman, the signature villain of the Sonic The Hedgehog series, was no exception to the rule. He's odd and sinister looking as it is, but the coup de grace of his outfit is the 'stache: it's almost impossible to take a clean-shaven Eggman seriously. Don't believe me? See for yourself
