6 Dumb Video Game Protagonists Not Known for Their Smarts
Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes)
A skilled assassin though he may be, Travis isn’t going to win any awards for his intelligence anytime soon.
Drawn into the assassination business because he blew all of his money on a light saber, his primary motivation to keep it up is so that he can sleep with the scheming Sylvia Christel.
This remains true even as she makes it clear that she’s only using him to achieve her own goals, and by the end of the first game he loses almost all of the money he made through his assassinations after she cons him out of it and vanishes.
Likewise, by the time players see him in Travis Strikes Again, he’s been driven into hiding in the remote wilderness to avoid the assassins now after his own head.
It’s an unfortunate fate to be sure, but also one which he should have expected after all the assassins he killed and could have avoided by thinking through who he accepted work from in the first place.
