When confronted about the tournament, he enters it, saying that the Viking pride will not let him lose.

World Heroes 2



World Heroes 2 Jet, World Heroes Perfect

Vikings are cool... this one eats a lot. He might have diabetus (yes, I meant to spell it that way, like the commercial). A design, Erik is a pretty generic one all around. He looks like he's right out of a 90's 2D side-scroller as a generic bad guy who disappears when he's dead. Besides being strangely obese for an "active" viking (allegedly), there's much else notable about Erik as a fighting game character design. He kinda looks like Santa as a viking.

Is Erik at least an effective design in the World Heroes series? Since he's based off of a historical figure (who was definitely a much cooler dude than Erik)... perhaps. One thing I'll give him credit for: He was one of the first and few "fat" fighting game characters to appear in the 90's. Indeed, we're back to talking about his fatness again. On that note, it's time for a fat joke. Erik is so fat and out of shape... that he can't even pick up weapon that suits his size. Are you kidding me? A bloke with this much brawn should be able to wield a great axe or a large hammer. In-game, all he fights with is that tiny axe. Get in shape bro.
