In recent years the battle royale genre game namely Free Fire, is gaining high popularity among Mobile gamers. This is shown by the number of active players from this game, such as from India and Brazil. In addition, the many competitions and championships that are regularly held make this game much loved by many people. This popularity is due to the features of this game that you can say offers several things that are quite different from its main competitor, PUBG Mobile. One of them is the character feature in the Free Fire game.
So far, Free Fire has more than 20 characters that you can choose from and are equipped with different skills and abilities. You can also use a mod from this source to buy it. However, did you know that there are some characters in Free Fire who are inspired by characters from the real world? Therefore, on this occasion, we will discuss 7 Free Fire characters inspired by famous figures in the real world.
If you are wondering, why is Free Fire favored by Brazilian gamers, then the answer is Alok. This is not because of this one character’s skill, but Alok himself is adapted from a famous Brazilian figure named Alok Achkar Peres Petrillo or better known as DJ Alok. The favorite character of the Free Fire players is the result of a collaboration between the DJ and Garena. Where in addition to the characters being adapted into the game, his song titled Vale-Vale is also featured in this battle royale genre game.
Of course, if Marvel fans see one of these characters, they will immediately remember the Quicksilver character played by Evan Peters in the X-Men film. In terms of appearance, Maxim really has similarities, both from his silver hair and the glasses used by Quicksilver. The use of the name Maxim itself is likely inspired by the real name of Quciksilver, Pierto Maximoff. More interestingly, Maxim’s skill in the Free Fire game itself is to increase speed after consuming various items. It looks like the developer was really “inspired” by the character created by Stan Lee at the creation of Maxim.
It seems that the developer is quite diligent in taking inspiration for the game’s characters from several famous figures from both the real world and other games. After previously Maxim was inspired by the character in the X-Men film, this time there is Rafael who has similarities with the main character in the Hitman game, namely Agent 47. Rafael himself truly represents the figure of this one agent both in terms of appearance and skill. From his own appearance, Rafael is depicted as a man in a dark suit and tie, and a gun that never leaves his hands. As for the skill, which is called “Dead Silent”, Rafael really portrays the figure of Agent 47 who is an assassin.
Besides DJ Alok, another character who is also inspired by a Brazilian figure is Miguel. During the release itself Miguel is said to have taken inspiration from a character named Captain Nascimento, played by Wagner Moura, in the Brazilian action film entitled Elite Squad. In his own costume, Miguel really imitates the appearance of Captain Nascimento in the film, wearing the costume of a special police officer. Even so, for no apparent reason Garena changed Miguel’s appearance, which looked like the Brazilian actor in an update some time ago.
It would be less obvious if the developer did not present a character that was directly inspired by a film which eventually gave birth to the Battle Royale genre game. Kelly himself is arguably a character who was inspired by a character in the Japanese film entitled “Battle Royale” which was released in 2000, named Takako Chigusa. Where can you see the similarity of these characters, the style of dress, the wound on her cheek, and the biography of Kelly who is a running athlete at her school. In the film itself, Takako Chigusa is depicted as a runner at her school, before finally being sent to an island with her classmates like the Free Fire game. With her speedy skills, you can say that Kelly herself is the game version of Takako Chigusa.
The next sequence is a character inspired by two singers from Thailand, namely Warattha Imraporn and Charattha Imraporn who are members of the Neko Jump group. The twin singers themselves are better known as Noey and Jam, and became Kapella’s inspiration in Free Fire. Biographically, Kapella herself is described as a famous K-Pop singer, this is similar to the original character Noey and Jam, who are also singers with typical Korean music. Interestingly, the two twin sisters also appeared as models of Kapella, in a K-pop-style videoclip entitled Pink Killer at the release of this character.
Of course, the steps to present a character inspired by this famous figure are Garena Free Fire’s efforts to attract gamers to play the game. Where this has worked in Brazil and Thailand with the presence of characters such as DJ Alok, and Kapella. Let’s just wait, what new characters will inspire Garena to be brought into the game.
