12 Video Game Protagonists With Zodiac Signs That Make Perfect Sense

You may believe that you can tell a lot about a person based on their zodiac sign. At the same time, a person’s character can even clarify what kind of sign is likely. Every character has a premonition, but few can fully understand some of the best.

There are a few key traits that tend to manifest with certain signs, and thanks to the way many character archetypes end up playing out, your favorite may even embody a few possible signs. Given that actual birthdates are hard to find in games, we have to point to the most obvious choices possible, whether it’s an actual birthdate or a note.



12 Chell – Capricorn

There is no better zodiac sign for Chell than the one most closely associated with virtues like patience and devotion, Capricorn. Depending on how good you are at puzzle games, Chell may exhibit some excellent levels of patience to make it through these fully haunted chambers.

That’s without even mentioning the patience she’d have to have to handle Glados and Wheatley’s many taunts throughout the Portal games. Chell is dedicated to getting as far away from these twisted robots as possible, and to do so she has her trusty Portal Gun.

11 Chris Redfield – Aquarius

You probably already know that an Aquarius will be a person who will try to change the world for the better. While Chris Redfield may not embody this idea in his first appearance in Resident Evil, he does as the series continues.

Chris’s mission in life becomes to stop Wesker and Umbrella from further infecting the world with bioweapons, which is a big change from being a member of the police special forces unit. He’s out there changing the world one boulder at a time.

10 Booker Dewitt – Pisces

Someone with an old soul or someone who managed to live a thousand years in a short life are just two ways to describe a Pisces. Anyone who has played Bioshock Infinite will know that this makes Booker Dewitt a prime candidate for Pisces.

Thanks to all the deception that goes on throughout the game, Booker eventually understands what needs to be done and the cycle is broken. Only someone who is wise beyond his years can make such a decision.

9 Mario – Aries

Fans of Super Mario Bros. will already know that Mario must be a ram. It doesn’t matter if you watch his many appearances in the main game or all those exciting side games, Mario gives it his all.

He does whatever it takes to be a hero, but is willing to put just as much effort into something as simple as golf or baseball. His ability to excel at everything he undertakes is also a classic Aries trait, something you Aries are already aware of.

8 Night bright sky – Taurus

Final Fantasy 15 Noctis Fishing

It might seem a bit odd to pair someone as seemingly emo as Final Fantasy 15’s Noctis with someone as blissful and indulgent as Taurus, but the more you think about it, the more it makes sense. His whole game has him camping, eating sumptuous food, and enjoying the wonderful world of the outdoors.

He may have Ignis to thank for this wonderful dish, but you can’t say that Noctis didn’t enjoy every minute of this delicious food. He’s a prince, so enjoying a slightly more luxurious lifestyle makes sense, even if it does get down and dirty.

7 Kirby – Twins

It’s probably the case that most people when they play the Kirby games just know that the little creature has to be a Gemini. While Kirby is certainly competent, he seems to be constantly surprised by everything around him.

Exploring new worlds and fighting new enemies is what Kirby loves to do, and he’s always more than well-equipped to deal with whatever comes his way. Of course, Kirby also loves food, which means the puffer has plenty of tasty treats to pique his curiosity.

6 Arthur Morgan – Cancer

Given that one of the most important things for a Cancer is trust, Arthur Morgan is probably one. An outcast is able to balance his playful side with his more sinister side, but those he trusts are more likely to see him smiling.

Those who fail to earn Morgan’s trust are likely to end up on the wrong side of his gun sooner or later. Although he is not quick to trust, he is quick to seek revenge against those who have betrayed his trust, or begrudgingly help them become better.

5 Cloud Strife – Leo

Everyone knows that Leos are passionate and incredibly theatrical, which can cause some tension with this selection. Cloud is completely theatrical and passionate as we’ve all seen his killer dance moves and willingness to change clothes to do what needs to be done.

The fact that he carries a huge sword on his back also helps make him quite the theatrics. He doesn’t need a sword that big, but he uses it anyway, because who’s going to bother trying to stop him anyway, right?

4 Samus Aran – Virgo

Considering that anyone who prepares a huge study manual before a test is an absolute Virgo, it stands to reason that someone as systematic and ruthless as Samus must be. She combs every inch of the various worlds to find tiny upgrades that will increase her chances of success, and it’s pretty close to a study guide in a way.

The pursuit of perfection only adds to how much of a virgin Samus is, because if you’re the kind of person who likes to fully complete Metroid games, you’ve made it clear that there can be no other option for a bounty hunter.

Link’s entire existence is dedicated to bringing balance to the world by defeating Ganon in any form. Although he is of few words, he is always able to connect with those around him on an emotional level on his adventures.

Maybe you’re a Libra who always identifies with Link, and that’s why. No matter how bleak things may seem, he will always push forward until everything is set right, because at the end of the day, that’s what Libras do.

2 Commander Shepard – Scorpion

Although Scorpios tend to be one of the most emotional signs of the zodiac, that’s simply because they’re driven by their emotions, which is true of Commander Shepard. Although they are logical characters, Shepard is driven directly by the Paragon/Renegade system.

Even in the smallest of interactions, you can decide which emotions Shepard unleashes on the people around him. Sometimes these reactions can be simple words, but sometimes Shepard can see her go so far as to push someone out a window.

1 Lara Croft – Shooter

You might think of Sagittarians as bookworms because of their eternal desire to learn, but you can also think of them as brave adventurers like Lara Croft. Everything he does on his adventures is in search of knowledge and survival.

The ability to travel the world and discover hidden aspects of familiar lands is exactly what a Sagittarius dreams of. If you feel the same way, you’ll probably want to try out some of these Tomb Raider games as soon as possible.
