    Eight Video Game Characters Who Found Religion

    Artists projecting aspects of themselves onto characters is par for the course when it comes to fanart, so why should religion be any different?

    1. Christian Master Chief

    Most devout mass-alien murderer ever.

    2. Jewish Shadow the Hedgehog

    fc08.deviantart.net

    From the description: "Shadow is the kind of guy who would be like 'oh crap... only enough oil to light the candle for one day... damn it...' and then he'd sit there for eight days and then someone would come walking in and be like 'AH! It's a miracle' and Shadow "no shit....'"

    3. Mormon Mario

    The description says this was created by a Mormon missionary to help explain the afterlife.

    4. Hindu Zelda

    Adding a lot more gods to the Zelda pantheon.

    5. Muslim Misty

    Her hijab is appropriately water-themed.

    6. Catholic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    When you search "Catholic" on DeviantArt, you see some strange things. The turtles had a great SNES game, so I'm counting them.

    7. Buddhist Link

    The description says Link uses the Four Noble Truths to overcome losing Midna at the end of Twilight Princess.

    8. Atheist Sonic the Hedgehog

    fc09.deviantart.net

    That's not how I remember the cartoon at all.
