#3: T3-M4 (Knights of the Old Republic)
This ugly hunk of junk belongs in the scrapheap. This charmless, grotesque simulacra of R2-D2 doesn’t even deserve to be in the same class of droid. Designed to bring some real Star Wars energy to KoToR, T3-M4 won’t stay on your party for very long. There’s a simple reason for that, and his name is HK-47. Very early in this quality Star Wars RPG, you’ll encounter the quip-spouting HK-47 assassin droid, and nobody wants two droids on your team. The sensible option is thus; ditch T3-M4 and never look back.
And T3-M4 isn’t even the most boring character on your team from the get-go! Carth Onasi begins the game as a boring Han Solo rip-off — but he slowly morphs into something far more interesting as the game progresses. T3-M4 never really develops, because he’s a droid shaped like a trashcan. And that’s where you’ll stay, T3.
#4: Dr. Zan (Streets of Rage 3)
Putting Dr. Zan on this list is unfair. Dr. Zan is just as powerful as his brawler counterparts in Streets of Rage 3. He can unleash super moves and punch down thugs with the best of them. Like any brawler character, he can hold his own in a fight. But he just looks so bad! Nobody is going to pick this jabroni over the returning classics — Axel, Blaze and Skate all reappear.
That leaves Dr. Zan as the odd-man-out. Zan looks weird, has a stupid robot body, and his electricity attacks aren’t that great. He doesn’t even have an idle animation. This guy just straight up sucks. At least he was (partially) salvaged in Streets of Rage 4, where you can play as his much cooler protégé Floyd Iraia.
