Video game heroes are a varied bunch: they range from console-selling mascots to coldblooded maniacs. Their recognizable personalities allow gamers to empathize with and relate to them. It's important for players to know the type of adventure they're embarking on when they boot up a game, and a hero generally mirrors the world around them. Even when gamers choose a starter Pokémon, it's important to pick one that aligns with their specific taste and personality.

With so many exciting protagonists to choose from, such as the characters Nintendo showcases, it's daunting to decide which video game hero aligns with an individual. That is where zodiac signs come in.

These star signs can help determine which video game character most closely resembles a gamer's traits. Just as the most famous villains have their unique personalities, there's a video game hero for each zodiac sign, matching up with how they think and behave in all kinds of situations. The zodiac provides a distinctive way to look at video game heroes and gives people a chance to see just how well their favorite characters sync up with them.
