----

* Jin Saotome from ''VideoGame/{{Cyberbots}}''. ''Especially'' in his Marvel vs Capcom 2 incarnation, in which most of his kicks and punches are ''on fire''! Even better, you can mash some buttons when taunting to make him wipe his towel on his back faster and faster until he's practically screaming his lungs out and on fire.
* ''Franchise/MetalGear''. ''[[ParrotExposition Metal Gear]]?'' There's Snake, Liquid, all the bosses (especially Raging Raven and Fury), even Otacon gets his moments. Usually paired with large amounts of SayMyName.
** With ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Raiden, of all people, has now become this.
* Richter Belmont (''Castlevania X: Rondo of Blood/Dracula X'', ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'').
** Also [[OrderOfEcclesia Albus]] and [[PortraitOfRuin Jonathan Morris]].
* Possibly Commander Shepard (both Paragon and Renegade) of ''Franchise/MassEffect'', to such a degree that [[TheWoobie Tali]] [[LampshadeHanging gets a line about how fun it is to watch him/her yell]]. Also Zaeed Massani, all the way. He survives being shot in the head at point-blank range SOLELY because he wanted to kill the guy who shot him.
* Gorath from ''VideoGame/BetrayalAtKrondor''. He'll get it done. It doesn't matter what he has to go through or sacrifice to do it.
* Perhaps the strongest force in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series, rivaled only by the Ideon Gun. In fact, one of the most useful special skills in the series is the "Valor" skill (Doubles the strength of your next attack), which in the original Japanese was called, you guessed it, "Nekketsu" (Hot Blood). In fact, damn near every character in the OriginalGeneration games uses it, even the ''shy'' ones.
** Not just ''OriginalGeneration''; a good number of the licensed anime characters get Valor/Hot Blood, including the primary cast of ''GundamWing'', which consists of TheStoic, TheQuietOne, one BrokenHero, an ArrogantKungFuGuy, and a cute little boy.
** ''Original Generations'', which adds voice acting to the games, shows that the [[BadassNormal Gespenst Mk II S]] turns everybody Hot-Blooded with it's signature LimitBreak, the Ultimate Gespenst Kick. Seriously. Not only does it have [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=R5Z3DIbrtR0 the shy girls screaming their lungs out]], but the characters who are already Hot-Blooded [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcoMQ2ubyKs turn that sucker up to twenty-two]].
** Special mention to the normally stoic Kyosuke Nanbu; once he performs the maneuver he will shout out the attack name so hot-bloodedly. It is good to note that [[Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa his seiyuu]] did break ''two'' microphones on separate occasions. See examples [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcoMQ2ubyKs from one of the games here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OcwkRpuHuA here for the anime version]]
*** ''[[AnimeOfTheGame The Inspectors]]'', makes this a JustifiedTrope: when the attack is ready to launch, the control panel flashes over with the verbal command to unleash the attack: "'''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OcwkRpuHuA SHOUT NOW!!]]'''''"
*** From the same game, Katina Tarask. With Attacker, Revenge (both of which increase her attack/retaliation damage once her Will level exceeds 130 - see above) and Prevail (which makes her fight better - dealing more damage, taking less, and evading more - as her mech sustains more and more damage) and the aforementioned Valor skill, she can deal out some serious hurt, usually yelling all the time (although not as much as Sanger), even when attacking carriers. "Reckless" barely describes her.
--> "I SAID, '''''GET OUT OF MY WAY!!!'''''"
** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' also quantifies this in the form of the "Will" stat. It starts each battle at 100 and can rise to 150 based on the tides of battle. It affects combat ability a quite a lot (each point of Will is like having your Attack, Defense, Accuracy, and Evasiveness all boost by one percent of their base amount), and certain weapons and effects can only be used over a certain Will value. Certain events (like some ''GaoGaiGar'' events) will boost this up to '''200''' or even '''''250''''', and that's before any spirit commands.
** However, the crowning glory of the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series for Hot Blooded characters is Sanger Zonvolt. The series' self-styled (but highly deserving of it) Sword That Cleaves Evil, Sanger takes on all comers and ''owns them all''. Always wielding some form of his Colossal Blade, a gigantic mecha sword that is sometimes THREE TIMES AS LARGE as his mecha, his sword is one that can cut through anything. Also armed with his many idioms and sayings, which he yells right before slicing his poor enemy in half.
--> "I AM SANGER ZONVOLT! '''THE SWORD THAT CLEAVES EVIL!'''"
** Sanger's HeterosexualLifePartner Rätsel Feinschmecker might initially look like a Blue Oni to Sanger's Red, but then things like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DX_IaXs5YQ this]] happen and prove that he's only a blue by virtue of Sanger being even ''more'' hot blooded.
** Really, Super Robot Wars is absolutely loaded with characters like these. In addition to Sanger and Katina, there's also Touma Kanou (who got so hot blooded at one point that he lost control and went on a rampage), and Folka and Fernando Albark, '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmFEXNpmCLA the Grand Masters]]''''' of martial arts. Though we haven't really met him yet, presumably Folka's {{Expy}} Aledy Naash will also be like this when EndlessFrontier EXCEED comes out.
** Even without the absolute awesomeness of Takuma Terashima's voice, Fighter Roar proved how hotblooded he was by taking out HumongousMecha ''ON FOOT...'' and ''then'' we get him in the Compatible Kaiser and things just go nuts. [[spoiler: Then it gets upgraded to the G-Compatible Kaiser, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xliM7ge7EQ THIS]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gy4JNEDd8xU happens]]. HSQ UpToEleven!]]
** Ryusei's character description says he's an "EXTREMELY hot blooded young man". He proves it in spades.
** Even characters from other series that are featured in ''Super Robot Wars'' are instantly turned into Hot Blooded badasses. Notable mention goes to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'''s Shinji in the ''Alpha'' series, where he went from a [[TookALevelinBadass spineless wimp to an asskicking god]].
* It's easier to mention which characters are NOT hot blooded in [[DynastyWarriors Koei's]] ''[[SamuraiWarriors Warriors]]'' [[WarriorsOrochi series]]. ''WarriorsOrochi'' in particular has so much hot blood (being a fusion of both ''{{Dynasty| Warriors}}'' and ''{{Samurai| Warriors}}''), it's amazing the games' boxes didn't melt off the shelves.
* Laharl and Flonne from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}'', and Adell and Axel from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}''. And then there's '''Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!''', who is guaranteed to give it his exclamation-point abusing all no matter what it is. Including [[MundaneMadeAwesome picnicking]].
** ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' gives us Champloo-sensei, the most {{Badass}}, HotBlooded ''Home Ec'' teacher you will ever find. Yeah, Disgaea's one of ''[[WidgetSeries those]]'' kinds of games.
** Valvatorez takes the crown in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|APromiseUnforgotten}}'', pouring extreme amounts of passion in whatever he does, be it giving a RousingSpeech, StormingTheCastle, [[GrammarNazi correcting grammar]], or [[TrademarkFavoriteFood eating sardines]].
* Batsu Ichimonji from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' is described [[AllThereInTheManual in the manual]] as the "Hot-Blooded [[NewTransferStudent Exchange Student]]". Furthermore, his SuperMode form in ''Project Justice'' is called "Burning Batsu" and all his special and super moves in that form set the opponent on fire!
** PE teacher Hayato's surname tells it all, and him having a super move named Burning Stoic that essentially [[NighInvulnerability makes him impervious to everything one can throw at him]] is a nice bonus. If that doesn't qualify as hot blooded manliness, then this editor doesn't know what would.
*** That would be his CombinationAttack, where he manifests his partner's Hot-Bloodedness into a [[CombinedEnergyAttack Genki Dama]] and ''launches'' it at the enemy.
* Kim Kaphwan and his son Kim Jae Hoon from the ''FatalFury'' series, as well as Joe Higashi, who seems to have an exclamation point at the end of everything he says and the bandana-wearing commando Ralf Jones, also of ''IkariWarriors'', ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'', and ''MetalSlug'' fame. When he gets in motion (which is practically ''all the time''), people get beat down. Sometimes [[StuffBlowingUp explosively]].
* Michael Wilson from ''MetalWolfChaos'':
--> "Nothing is POINTLESS! And the reason is.....because I'm the President.... of THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! ''YEEAAAHHHH!''"\\
\\
-->"HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW!?!"
* If you're in trouble... if there's not enough hotbloodedness... maybe you need to call... [[OsuTatakaeOuendan OUENDAAAAAN]]!
** Or... e... b... a... e.. b.. a.. e. b. a. e.b.a. E.B.A. EBA! EBA! EBA! EBA! [[EliteBeatAgents ARE YOU READY]]? YEAH!
** The sequel to Ouendan is titled ''Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii'' which translates to "Burn! Hot-Blooded Rhythm Soul!"
** "Hot-blooded manly passion" is a major aesthetic element of Japanese cheerleading ''in real life'', though obviously not to the '''''EXTREMES''''' - like [[spoiler:stopping a meteor or reviving a burning-out sun]] - that this series in particular takes it.
* [[RiverCityRansom Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun]] - He has "Hot Blooded" right there in his series title! His whole ''high school'' is named "Nekketsu". That's one bad-ass high school.
** And Kunio/Alex himself is the hero of the school, being summoned whenever a crisis emerges or a sports challenge comes up. His girlfriend can kick ass when she feels like it. Kunio/Alex isn't as known and respected as he should be, in video games...
* ''StreetFighter'''s Dan Hibiki. "''DOUSHITA!?''" "''OYAJII!!!!''" It's probably no coincidence that Dan's seiyuu in ''4'' also voices Hayato Saionji in ''Ouendan 2'', mentioned above.
* Nearly all of the fire bosses in the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZX ZX]]'' series are pretty HotBlooded, including the fire master, Fefnir. Oddly, near the top of the HotBlooded ranking for all six games is an ''ice'' boss, Fenri Lunedge from ''Zero 4''. His attitude to Zero, and more importantly his voice clips, put him probably right under Fefnir himself.
** Another HotBlooded ice boss is Chilldre Inarrabita, to a lesser extent than Fenri Lunaedge. Although he has a partial excuse in being a deliberately juvanille character (Chilldre = child[ren] + chill).
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries''
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'': Stahn Aileron. The boy can be hot-blooded when commanding his allies to flee. His battle cry in ''Satsugeki Bukouken''/''Final Fury'' is '''''ORENENENENENENENENENENE!!!!!!''''' Hot Blood, to the max.
** Lloyd of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' is very hot-blooded when provoked or his friends are threatened. He declares war on the Desians out of anger and outright said he desired to kill all of them. He also had little quarrels about beating an angel to death after he took the soul of his childhood friend, kept attacking a person who could easily own the entire party out of irritation. Granted, he cools down as the game goes on and he is nearly a stoic in the sequel, but he can still fly off the handle if he is angry enough.
** [[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth Tytree Crowe]] "SISTER! ! !" (plus points for being voiced by Kappei Yamaguchi)
* Zell in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', and he ''never'' sits still. Put him anywhere near GenkiGirl Selphie and you'll be wishing for Ritalin.
* Zack of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a prime example of this trope, [[spoiler:depressingly]].
** Which is highlighted even further by contrast against the [[CrapsackWorld dark and dreary nature of the world]] the game takes place in, and the general angst of other characters in the game world (especially in the expanded games and movie).
** Does Cid from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' count?
** And Barret during Midgar arc.
* [[BraggartBoss Gilgamesh]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''. The only time he isn't hyped about fighting the heroes is when he's [[GoldfishPoopGang running away like a pansy, having been royally trumped]].
* Firion from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' is given this characterisation in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. When activating his SuperMode, he even shouts: "I FEEL IT IN ''MY BLOOD''!"
** This might be more of a reference to the fact that his SuperMode changes his weapons into Blood weapons, which drain enemy HP on hit.
* Then there's Snow Villiers from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', despite being AnIcePerson.
* [[SamuraiShodown My Boiling Blood Bubbles For Battle]]
** Arguably many of KOEI's ''DynastyWarriors'' and ''SamuraiWarriors'' characters, mixed with BloodKnight and BoisterousBruiser.
** It was practically one of the criteria for a mission Ox and Kirikou took on. While we didn't see how it went, it was apparently successful.
* Riki Makishi in ''{{Bangai-O}}''. Then again, he is native of a planet [[PlanetOfHats populated by hot blooded men]].
** Everyone in ''Bangai-O Spirits'', the lighthearted, plot-free DS spinoff, in different ways. Ruri is more enthusiastic, especially when the time comes to shout [[TransformationNameAnnouncement "Bangai-O GO!"]], while Masato thinks the whole thing is stupid. On the other hand, he's very confident, reckless, always ready to get to the mission already.
* VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou: Beat. Period. Especially when someone touches his Sis or [[BerserkButton mentions his full name...]]
* Minsc from ''BaldursGate''.
** "The bigger they are, the harder I hit!"
** "Butt-kicking...FOR GOODNESS!!!"
** "Go for the eyes, Boo. GO FOR THE EYES! RARRGH!!"
* The new Willpower power set in ''CityOfHeroes'' allows for characters that have [[BadassNormal no super reflexes or resistance]], but can remain up and fighting with the super-powered through sheer force of will. If that's not Hot Blooded, I don't know what is.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters'', the monsters' ideal personality (which affects their AI) is Hotblood.
* Vyse and Aika in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', among many others.
* Bang Shishigami from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''
** "QUICKER THAN THE WIND AND AS STILL AS THE FOREST! HOTTER THAN FLAMES AND MORE MAGNIFICANT THAN A MOUNTAIN!"
** When one of Bang's specials, [[spoiler:Fuurinkazan, which the above is taken from,]] is unleashed, the background music is replaced with ''his very own theme song'' performed by - of all people - '''''JAM PROJECT.''''' (Or more specifically, Hironobu Kageyama.)
** Also, when using his astral finish, his burning passion ends up burning his clothes off.
** Not just Bang either. There's [[BigBad Haz]][[EvilIsHammy ama]], [[GenkiGirl Mak]][[MsFanservice oto]]... Be honest, here: VideoGame/BlazBlue is a TropeOverdosed WorldOfHam filled with HotBlooded HamToHamCombat. Every character except [[TheStoic Rachel, Valkenhayn and Relius]] have their HotBlooded moments.
* [[FireEmblemElibe Hector of Ostia and Dart the Pirate]], anyone?
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Ross the Journeyman and the Berserker Dozla]]
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius KIERAN]], [[IncomingHam SECOND-IN-COMMAND OF THE CRIMEAN ROYAL KNIGHTS]]
** Quite a few characters in [VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Fire Emblem: Awakening]sound like this in their critical quotes, some more than others but especially the males, yet no one can deny that the grandmaster of all things Hot Blooded in the entire damn franchise is Owain, aka HE WHOSE SWORD HAND THIRSTS FOR BLOOD AND BATTLE, AND WHOSE NAME SHALL BE FOREVER REMEMBERED IN THE SAGAS!
* ''VideoGame/EvilZone'': Danzaiver!
* Fawkes from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' is extremely passionate both about philosophy and about [[WarriorPoet ripping evil doers to shreds.]]
* [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Sanada Yukimura's]] soul is '''on fire with PASSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'''
* [[AllThereInTheManual According to secondary material]], Fire Man from the original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' game has a HotBlooded personality. This is his major character quirk in ''MegaManPoweredUp''. He's constantly screaming at the top of his lungs about [[KillItWithFire fire,]] justice or some combination thereof. He also yells "ON FIRE!" every few attacks.
* Bowser in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'' is this when he's not a ButtMonkey. The game mixes his normal bullheaded determination with outright heroic courage, including some passionate {{Victory Pose}}s that include chest pounding for pulling off successful special attacks, pumping his fist for victory and a BadassArmfold for [[spoiler:when he's about to pull off a FinishingMove on the FinalBoss]]. His lines are also like this, especially his ShutUpHannibal moments.
* In the ''VideoGame/SakuraTaisen'' series, you can choose what Ogami's (both Ogamis are included under that) responses to various questions/circumstances are. Usually, the most proactive one will have a frame of Ogami shouting with flames in the background. The hotblooded choice isn't ''always'' the right choice, but more often than not it is.
** The more you select Ogami's hotblooded answers in ''SakuraTaisen'', the better you're probably doing. [=SpiritArmor's=] LetsPlay of it parodies this to great effect.
* Eddie Riggs of ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', especially since he's leading an army built upon ThePowerOfRock as well as being played by JackBlack.
--> '''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny "DECAPITATIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!"]]'''
* Don't let his ironic name fool you; [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow Villiers]] is so hot blooded it's hard to find a scene he's in where he ''isn't'' being a {{Big Damn Hero|es}}.
* ''VideoGame/{{God Of War}}'''s main protagonist Kratos is [[NoIndoorVoice shouting ALL THE TIME]]. Plus the way he fights is just raw brutality (often ending with him ripping his target to literal shreds with his bare hands).
* Garlot of ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion''; it seems to be a requirement for a young freedom fighter such as himself to be passionate and reckless to a fault. [[YggdraUnion Three years later]], he's ''still like this'', charging into lots of things scythe-first. Interestingly enough, his blood also happens to be hot as well. [[spoiler:More apparent once he's changed his name to Gulcasa, he's physically more demon than human, as a true descendant of the demon dragon Brongaa. Burning blood, superhuman strength, and (while exerting his full power) an actual aura of fire happen to be side effects.]]
* From ''VideoGame/TotalOverdose'', the protagonist Ram, aka 'El Gringo Loco', is more hotblooded than his father. A great deal of accurate puns follow from the name 'Ram'.
* Asuma Shidou from ''VideoGame/DaemonBride'' fights with his PowerFist burning on fire and is always yelling with full of hot blood when attacking.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' features [[WorldOfHam a cast comprised of pork products]], but among them the most passionate has to be the Soldier, hands down. A complete [[PsychoForHire psychopath]] driven by PatrioticFervor and an understanding of reality so that is so absurd it defies explanation or logic, he also manages to demonstrate a driving force of will that even his larger [[StealthPun comrade]] the Heavy cannot muster. Every other word out of his mouth exits [[NoIndoorVoice at the top of his lungs]] and his tactics can often be described as "I will [[ViolationOfCommonSense point this rocket launcher at my feet]] and [[RocketJump launch myself skyward]] to catch the enemy off guard!" Even when losing, he doesn't seem to understand concepts like despair or surrender, and instead berates his team for not trying harder. A domination line to the enemy Pyro [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]]:
-->'''Soldier''': You cannot burn me. I am already ablaze with passion '''for war'''!
* [[GanbareGoemon Goemon]] is a hotblooded man of Edo ([[{{Kawaisa}} despite his looks]]), who is always itching to beat the snot out of villains with his trusty pipe when they cause trouble. When the Japanese title of his series has "Ganbare" ("Do your best/Hang in there") in it, it's to be expected.
* Wataru Hoshi from ''Star Trigon''.
** ''"With names like Hoshi and Big Bang, we're '''DESTINED TO BE IN OUTER SPACE!!!!"'''''.
* A soccer freak whose name is [[VideoGame/InazumaEleven Endou Mamoru.]]
* Asura from ''AsurasWrath'' Is so hot blooded that he can [[spoiler: punch and destroy a finger from A PLANET SIZED BUDDHA, all while giving out gluttural roars and screams. And destroys it]]. English voice Actor LiamOBrien makes him sound even MORE HotBlooded.
** Made even more impressive by the fact that, while O'Brien plays badasses all the time, they tend to be the cool, calm, and collected type. Who knew that even the God Of All Voice Actors was capable of playing against type so well?
* Alex, the protagonist of [[{{TCT RPG}} The Colour Tuesday,]] is a hotheaded, brash delinquent whose burning drive, implacable idealism and willingness to keep going where others give up is what drives the story at times, even as it makes her rather stubborn (in an [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman-ish]] sort of way) and at times a little obnoxious.
-->'''Bella:''' "Also, you have no tact."
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', the fire of the Falcon Punch really reflects [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon's]] hot bloodedness. He is [[TheComicallySerious not like this at all]] in his home series.
* [[TheHero Avan Hardins]] from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII''. He won't be out of place in a HumongousMecha series.
** Anika from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesIII'' is a female version. {{Reconstructed}} the concept, too.
* Red from ''{{Solatorobo}}''. Elh outright calls him "hot-headed", and he only solves ''one'' of the three riddles for the [[spoiler:Flute]], settling the first two with violence. Frequently [[HonorBeforeReason charges in without thinking]], and says some pretty cheesy things with a straight face.
* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' games, this is a typical trait of [[PlayingWithFire Mars]] [[PersonalityPowers Adepts]]. In ''Dark Dawn'', Karis is also mentioned to have a fiery personality for a [[BlowYouAway Jupiter Adept]].
* Connor of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' is young, passionate, and something of a WideEyedIdealist. He views the world through a lens where injustice must not be tolerated, at any cost, and so has a tendency to charge headlong into situations without thinking. This gets him in a lot of trouble.
* Though it's a bit more subdued than most examples, the Nords of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' definitely have shades of this, especially the old-fashioned Stormcloaks, who will walk over whatever rules or enemies get in their way in order to fulfill their understanding of right while charging you screaming and with a huge battleaxe.
* Both Knuckles and Sonic from the ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'' franchise are this, though in different ways. Knuckles is temperamental and bad-tempered, while Sonic has a cool-temper, but is nonetheless passionate about saving the world and defeating Eggman.
* Any Link from any [[LegendOfZelda Zelda]] game can count, at least in battle. Otherwise, he's rather quiet.
* [[TestosteronePoisoning Mister]] [[LargeHam Torgue]] from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' is a [[NoIndoorVoice loud]] and [[BoisterousBruiser lively]] PsychopathicManchild who, while [[GentleGiant kind]], [[HonestCorporateExecutive honest]], and [[NiceGuy civil]], does everything with oodles of passion and no subtlety whatsoever. Even his ''politeness'' is enthusiastic and noisy.
