Royal Rumble weekend is upon us. If you follow WWE or wrestling in general, you’ll know what this is.

For those who don’t know, the Royal Rumble is an event where 30 people participate in a Battle Royal and at the end only one will remain. The Royal Rumble starts off with two people in the ring and then at consistent intervals (usually around 90 seconds) another competitor will enter the ring.

The participants have to eliminate the other competitors by throwing them over the top rope and both feet touching the floor outside the ring.

With it being Royal Rumble weekend I thought it would be cool to do a Video Game Royal Rumble. 30 video game characters. Only one character from a series. The same rules for the WWE Royal Rumble apply here.

  • King – Tekken
  • Akira Yuki – Virtua Fighter
  • Dhalsim – Street Fighter
  • Nathan Drake – Uncharted
  • Lara Croft – Tomb Raider
  • Bayonetta – Bayonetta
