2 – Marowak (Pokemon)
The saddest quest in Pokemon games is your encounter with the ghost of a mother Marowak in the Pokemon Tower. She is the essence of what it is to be a mom, protecting her child at all costs. Though her soul peacefully moves on to the afterlife once you beat her, you cant help but feel like a dick. Shame on you.
1 – Mad Moxxi (Borderlands)
Smart, tough, and sexy, this southern belle mom has it all. Shes confident, able to speak her mind, doesn’t need a man for protection, and uses her “assets” to her advantage. She is one of the best NPC quest givers in the game and she cares deeply about her children, Scooter and Ellie. Furthermore, her line of guns are also some of the most fun to use weapons in the game. What other mom can say they run a bar and underground fighting pit? Most Badass Mom Ever.
And just for good measure… here’s the best cosplay of Mad Moxxi known to man done by the one and only Jessica Nigri. YOU’RE WELCOME.
