Video Game Character Inspired by PRINCE.

Came across this, never knew that the character RAIN from Mortal Kombat was inspired by Prince.

Creator of Mortal Kombat:

"Rain was me being a jerk, basically. [laughs] When we were working on Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, I was thinking “what ninja color have we not done yet?” … and I’m a huge Prince fan, so I was thinking Purple Rain. I was probably still listening to the album. There was no time to actually make a character, because the game was done. So I hacked into the attract screen a quick little sequence of this purple ninja running at Shao Kahn. We didn’t even have the word “Rain” in the powerbar, so I manually built it using our font. So I included this quick glimpse just to drive people crazy. Once Mortal Kombat Trilogy came out, we gave Rain new moves and he finally became a real character. Later we brought him back for Mortal Kombat Armageddon. That’s one of the things about Mortal Kombat: many of the characters have these goofy development histories. Noob Saibot, Reptile…all of these odd origin stories."

"Quincy Queen" in the videogame "Crossing Souls" is obviously inspired by prince.

In 1989 I co-wrote the first MUD (a multiplayer fantasy text adventure) in Italy and in the world there was several fontains of the god of luxury called Kris Pher Toth, that was a silly anagram for Christopher, the main caracther of Under The Cherry Moon. Somewhere in the game there is also a stone with engraved some lyrics from Around The World in a Day.

LOL, is it just me or does it really sound like something Prince would've said? Honestly, I would LOVE to have a whole video game with a main character based on Prince, just the looks though.

There's a wrestler called Velveteen Dream whose character is obviously inspired by Prince. He even wears the 3rdEyeGirl glasses and all. And his theme song is very Prince-esque.

Yeah, that's the guy. His entrance theme even sounds like a Prince knock off.
