The 15 Most Stereotypical Characters In Video Games

Dalsim (Street Fighter)

Stereotype: Indians/Hindus

India can lay claim to Gandhi, Deepak Chopra and even Mother Teresa in a proud testament to changing the world. However, all their accomplishments could pale in the offensive light of Dalsim. From his constant “Yoga fire” to painted face, this long-limb fighter will make Indians cringe at his portrayal. While Apu from The Simpsons takes the cake in Indian stereotypes, Dalsim is not far behind. That sound you now hear is one billion people sighing in disbelief.
