Franklin Fizzlybear - Viva Pinata
As you're creating and making a wonderfully thriving pinata garden while attacking and caring for them you'll encounter this lovable bear Franklin Fizzybear.
It's incredibly friendly and playful which you wouldn't expect from a bear. Franklin actually enjoys spending time with other pinata's and going through the activities like parties and races.
You'll have a ton of fun while playing Viva Pinata and love watching them grow and evolve into new species.
Tibbers - League Of Legends
League of Legends is still one of the most widely played games in the world at any time. You can find upwards of 2 million players online at any time of the day in case you were looking for someone to face up against.
Tibbers is the ability of the champion Annie, who is incredibly well versed by using her magic spells.
As you unleash Tibbers, it'll protect Annie by punishing opponents while guarding her. Tibbers can also give additional passive ability by causing damage over time.
Bentley Bear - Crystal Castles
You get to control Bentley Bear in the 1983 Atari smash hit Crystal Castles. For those of you that aren't old enough to remember this ferocious bear of a protagonist, you make your way collecting crystals and hopefully avoiding enemies that come your way.
Bentley Bear is quite the opposite as what you would expect from a roaring lead cahracter in a video game. Bentley Bear is rather cute and loves climbing and jumping through the levels in order to progress.
Bentley is one of the most well known bears in games and we consider this iconic character to be well regarded in the world of classic gaming.
Polar - Crash Bandicoot
This powerful ally of the bandicoot himself is always ready to reach out and lend a hand whenever you're in need. You're able to use Polar to help protect Crash in a pinch. What would you expect from a bear that acts like a dog while barking and is able to be ridden like a horse?
Polar makes several appearances in the PlayStation classic franchise dating back all the way to Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back on the PSX and on the PS2 in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.
Teddiursa - Pokemon
You won't have much trouble encountering a Teddiursa when looking for one out in the wild. It's brown fur and mark on their forehead are quite easy to spot. You can find Teddiursa's almost anywhere considering how easy this common Pokemon is to find.
Teddiursa also has another form by evolution into an Ursaring which is an even larger, stronger bear Pokemon after reaching a certain party level of experience points.
Chen Stormstout - World of Warcraft
Before the days where MMOs were insanely popular, we had the original online RPG in World of Warcraft. Based on the subscription model where you had to pay a monthly fee in order to gain access to their online servers it was a pretty groundbreaking experience and set the ways for pay per play models of online gaming.
Chen Stormstout is a brewmaster and also can be found as a member of the Horde faction. Being an extremely skilled fighter, being able to take out enemies with the use of it's brewmaster abilities. This allows him to manufacture potions and use them for protection while in battle.
We wouldn't recommend stepping foot against Chen as it'll take you out with one flip of it's mighty staff. On the inside though, Chen is noble and wise who will value traditions.
Kuma - Tekken
One of the most popular character in the Tekken series is this gi wearing, material arts massive bear. Don't be fooled with it's large stature, Kuma is as nimble as a Cheetah with it's quick moves.
Kuma is a rather loyal servant of Mishima's family while serving as a ferocious bodyguard to Heihachi. It's rather unfortunate that Kuma was killed off after the unfortunate events of Tekken 2. Since then, Kuma has been replaced with his son Kuma II in later games.
Monokuma - Danganronpa
Judging by the look of this iconic Yin-Yang symbol looking robotic bear you'd at first glance look rather intimiated. Considering Monokuma is the headmaster at the local Hope's Peak Academy who teaches kids to turn against each other.
We consider Monokuma to be quite the manipulative character who's consistently teaching the students to break the rules by showing little to no compassion or sympathy for anyone who stands in his way.
Freddy Fazbear - Five Nights at Freddy’s
We consider this jump scaring bear to be one of the scariest video games of all time. One glance at this animatronic bear will have you loving the cuddly warm looks of this bear on the surface. Freddy on the other hand is a completely different animal.
Jump scaring you at any moment while roaming the restaurant as you flip between CCTV cameras. Freddy is not the cuddly troll doll that the 80s toys would suggest but actually has the personality comparable to Freddy Krueger.
Megan - Animal Crossing
We consider Animal Crossing to be filled with many lovable bear village beings that you'll have to care for while building your city. With no other competitor in sight, Megan is the finest bear of the lovable bunch.
Being quite friendly and outgoing who really thrives when socializing with the other towns folk in the game. Megan absolutely loves fashion and spends a bunch of time just trying on accessories with matching outfits.
Runebear - Elden Ring
Elden Ring is known for it's insane level of difficulty and Runebear is one of those bosses you definetely won't be able to make it through on the first try.
In close quarters, you'll have to really dodge quickly in order to take on Runebear. Make sure to have enough stamina to attack or cut around a corner in order to lunge in for a quick attack.
It's very difficult to take on Runebear considering the slow paced action in Elden Ring. It really pays off to be extremely aggressive when facing off against this giant bear of a boss.
Ursaring - Pokemon
Another Pokemon has made our list of games with Bears and this one comes in during the generation 2 of the Pokemon franchise. We spoke about it above within the lower evolution in Teddiursa mentioned above.
The ultimate Bear in the world of Pokemon makes use of the Slash or Hammer Arm physical attacks. We always had an Ursaring by our side as a member of our party during those tough gym battles.
We loved how Teddiursa evolves into Ursaring in the animated Pokemon TV show. Since that moment, Ursaring quickly became a fan favorite around the world.
Banjo - Banjo-Kazooie
While you wouldn't want to give Banjo a bear hug, you could pick up your N64 controller and have him run around collecting everything in plain sight. That's the name of the game in this collectathon where you'll go around finding honeycombs and jiggies in order to progress further in the game.
We loved every minute of controlling this banjo playing furry bear. It's like the makers of Rare took what made Super Mario 64 so great and amplified every aspect of it. You're end result is one of the best 3d platformers of all time.
