Barbarian protagonist

Creatures theme

The protagonist is a barbarian. Usually has scarce leather or fur clothing (such as just fur loincloth), long unkempt hair, and somewhat limited cultural skills. But not so primitive as to be a caveperson or civilized enough to be viking or some other.

The first video game about Barbarian protagonist was released in 1983.

Taito, Palace Software and Sega has published most of these games

The clothing choices of barbarians tend get more complex only with what they can scavenge, so they end up with loosely fitting pieces of clothing/armor that they somehow tie together in a poor show of ragged fashion.
