Sexy, awesome, and horrible fighting game Halloween costumes

Why 'sexy Pikachu' is a thing is beyond me

Halloween won't be rolling around for another 24 days or so, which means you still have time to get yourself a cool costume. If you're a big fighting game fan, that also might mean you're looking to pick something up related to one of your favorite competitive fighters.

As we do each year, tonight we're taking a look at some of the fighting game Halloween costumes out there right now. From sexy to straight-up horrible, Street Fighter to Super Smash Bros., the outfits here will not fail in putting a smile on your face.

Featured in this gallery are several new costumes that we've never showcased here on the site. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Link is one that is a newer release, as well as others like Hellboy and Terminator — both being characters in Injustice 2 and Mortal Kombat 11, respectively.

There are also a handful of frequent fliers here, such as the Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, janky Sonic The Hedgehog, and even sexy Luigi.

While all of the costumes here don't entirely reflect their in-game counterparts, every one of these characters can be found in a major fighting game. We've included contenders like Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza from Dragon Ball Z (because of Dragon Ball FighterZ), the Joker, one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Freddy Krueger in honor of NetherRealm Studios' titles, and some classic Marvel vs. Capcom series staples like Wolverine, Magneto, and Phoenix.

Of course, it just wouldn't be an FGC Halloween if we didn't talk about the really bad costumes in the bunch. The male Yoshi costume, Deadpool's face (without the mask), and the weird Bowser romper need a little more effort behind them, and I don't think "sexy Pikachu" will ever not be puzzling to me.
