1. Fat Guy – NES Ice Hockey
Fat Guy dominated Ice Hockey in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s with his bruising checks and rocketing slap shot. His reputation perfectly matched that of the Soviet Union: plodding and terrifying.Yet when the Soviet Union crumbled, so did Fat Guy's career. The Russian ice hockey team turned to a different style to represent the new nation, a more moderate Medium-Sized Guy style or even a quick and nimble Skinny Guy approach. Not that Fat Guy could have continued playing anyway. By the early ‘90s, years of steroids, overeating and alcohol abuse caught up to him. There was a brief fling with Princess Peach, but then he faded from the public eye.
Today he is wracked by diabetes and debt. He lives in the same Moscow public housing building as the Trololo guy.
