Updated on September 3, 2018

I've been an avid gamer for more than 20 years, and especially love the genres of horror, RPGs, and puzzle.

The Order: 1886 got big buzz before it was released, and the main character has a pretty sweet mustache. In honor of this very distinguished, high-definition facial hair, let’s take a look at some of the best mustaches in gaming (in no particular order). Which video game character belongs on this list, and which one is your personal favorite? Who belongs in the video game mustache hall of fame? Let me know in the comments!

Solid Snake

He may not appear young anymore, but Solid Snake is rocking a sweet stache in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It’s just the right size, and you can tell he takes the time to trim it! Young Solid Snake may have had some facial hair, but it doesn't hold a candle to Old Snake's full 'stache. Old Snake is proof that you don't have to be young to look good. Oh yeah, he's definitely handsome.

Andrew Ryan

Andrew Ryan from Bioshock is a good example of when a mustache makes you look creepy. In this case, the creepiness is well earned. Sure, maybe some good guys rock this 'stache, but in Andrew Ryan's case, it just serves to perpetuate the sterotype that this mustache is evil.

Heihachi Michima

Coming from Tekken, baddie Heihachi has a slick mustache that compliments his rather crazy hairdo. It’s a Tekken staple that makes Heihachi a very recognizable character. No matter which entry you're playing, Heihachi is there with this 'stache. It'd just be weird otherwise!

Wario and Waluigi

The rivals of Mario and Luigi have some pretty interesting mustaches. Wario and Waluigi both have fine facial hair, and Waluigi especially seems infatuated with his. He’s always touching it! Wario's mustache seems to at least give people something else to look at other then his giant nose. And for Waluigi, well, maybe he is trying to look less lanky by growing some facial hair.

Dr. Robotnik/Eggman

The main antagonist from the Sonic the Hedgehog series has a mustache that you just know is evil. Dr. Robotnik, also known as Eggman, has appeared in almost every Sonic game. He has that typical, messed up, I-don't-shave-or-trim mustache look that most mad scientists have. Maybe it's a requirement for the position.

Dr. Wily - Megaman

Everyone’s favorite plumbers, Mario and Luigi, both have full mustaches. You'll see them with it every time, unless you are rescuing baby Mario or Luigi. Honestly, who would Mario and Luigi be without their facial hair? What would adult Mario and Luigi look like? That’s a weird image. Not something I think I ever need to see!

Dr. Wily

The Megaman antagonist has the perfect mad scientist mustache, like Eggman. Dr. Wily may have gone gray, but his facial hair just serves to compliment his image. Heck, he could even trim some of it to make a patch for that big bald spot on his head. Also, has anyone else noticed that his mustache grows in the same patterns as his hair?

Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam - Pokemon

Captain Price

Captain Price from Call of Duty has a mustache that just oozes class. This English soldier strikes fear and jealousy into his opponents, probably mostly due to his lush facial hair. Oh yeah, he's one of the most refined soldiers out there. For sure.


Yep, some creatures in video games have mustaches too! These two Pokémon both have a mustache. Clearly, the long mustache gives Kadabra and Alakazam some of their super psychic power. Only the first evolution, Abra, isn't rocking a 'stache. Must be because he's too young to grow any. If you're interested, there are plenty more Pokémon with mustaches too. Check out Krictitune, Swalot, or Sealeo.

Which 'stache is your favvorite?

Gordon Freeman

Gordon Freeman is just a regular scientist guy who got caught up in some serious business in Half-Life. His facial hair someone serves to add to his good guy image. It's that kind of mustache and beard combo that you see everywhere, the one guys choose if they want to look extra handsome.
