From Baldur’s Gate 3 to Spongebob Squarepants, these Dragon’s Dogma 2 custom characters are amazing

Dragon’s Dogma 2’s character creator has been out less than two days, and would-be players have already made Shadowheart from Baldur’s Gate 3 in it. But that’s just the tip of a rather silly iceberg and, thanks to the character creator’s flexibility, we’ve seen characters from Lord of the Rings, Spongebob Squarepants and beyond.

Admittedly, when it comes to crafting in-game avatars, we’re not quite that talented. We went in trying to create the Tank from Left 4 Dead, but got a little carried away with all the options. Instead, we ended up with the secret lovechild of Bigfoot and Abraham Lincoln (who skips leg day). On the bright side, we let him keep all his teeth.

So we tip our hat to the amazing creators who’ve taken Dragon’s Dogma 2’s character creator and used it to craft some true masterpieces. And when the game does launch in a couple of weeks, these creators will be able to import their characters without any further fuss. Here are just a few of the brilliant, brilliant creations we’ve seen across Twitter and Reddit.

Handsome Squidward (by Paer124)

Garfield (by Highberget)

Danny DeVito (by PennyMeowy)

Sam Gangee (by Jimbotron4236)

Shadowheart (by Wakiratoshi)

Leon S. Kennedy (by TDivid3r)

That last one is what we imagine you’d get if Resident Evil’s Leon Kennedy was in a Pixar movie, and we love the idea of having Lord of the Rings Sam Gangee as your faithful Pawn. You can find plenty of other awesome creations on the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Reddit and we heartily recommend having a good browse. But our absolute favourite comes via Twitter, from Dan Pearce. It’s a character he simply calls “Brexit”. If you know, you know.

If you’re wondering why these avatars have scars on their chests, it’s because, as the Arisen, a dragon has torn their hearts out. How are they still alive? Find out this March 22nd when is when the game lands on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we feel the call of Dragon’s Dogma 2’s character creator, Astarion from Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t going to make himself.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
