Drake is kind of a good fit. He's the only character in the game that doesn't have powers or is a crazy creature. He's just a guy, and that makes him stand out.
Drake = bland guy
Kratos = guy with chain blades on his arms
Fat Princess = cartoon puffball
Cole = Electric Super Hero (Kinda reminds me of a white Static Shock...... LOOK IT UP)
Heihachi = guy.... but guy who does karate and **bleep**
Tora = a cat creature
Parappa = Rapping dog
Radec = a robot looking dude
Big Daddy = another robot looking dude, but with a drilldo....
Sweet Tooth = guy who can summon a giant mech
Sly Cooper = Raccoon
Jak = elf guy with a weasel on his back
Sackboy = a stuffed animal
Dante = guy, but with crazy arial attacks and huge weapons
Ratchet = alien with a robot on his back
Spike = noseless kid with no redeeming qualities
E. Cole = Super Villain with electric superpowers
Raiden = cyborg ninja
Nariko = long haired chick with no real redeeming qualities... maybe her huge sword... does the carpet match the drapes?
Sir Dan = skeleton
I personally love Drake's inclusion and I'll play as him quite a bit but I will say some of his moves are just random, where is he pulling a big frigin barrel from? why can he create dibree, zip lines, and vines at will? He's gotta have a hidden Sackboy partner or something to make sense out of all this.
Sucker punch are big comic fans. He could also be like electro if you think about it.
What's the matter? Did I tarnish the good name of this character by comparing him to a black character? tsk tsk... That's **bleep** racist
Oh lord...Not this stuff again...
