Game: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
What Makes Him Bad: Responsible for bringing about World War III.
What Makes Him Cool: This Ultranationalist is the honey badger of Call of Duty.

From black market arms dealer to intimidating terrorist, Zakhaev's ideals and propaganda are widely agreed to have begun the third World War as depicted in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. He may have been a hero to New Russia, but he took out a glut of the American troops and allies of Call of Duty while doing so, making him one of the series' most formidable opponents.
