Sackboy: 10 Best Crossover Costumes | Screen Rant

Since Sackboy's debut in Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet in 2008, he has become one of the most recognizable faces associated with the PlayStation brand. His game has become a series, spanning multiple generations of home and handheld consoles.

DLC has become a huge driving force behind these titles, offering players custom kits to make their stages and most importantly, costumes for Sackboy to wear, and all cross-platform too. Among this additional content, there have been a ton of crossover costumes to dress Sackboy as recognizable characters. But which ones are among the best?

Back in 2005, God of War introduced everyone to the vengeful and violent Kratos as he rampaged against the Greek gods for the death of his family. What some would say is the best hack and slash series was one of the most violent and bloodthirsty games that graced the PlayStation consoles before it was given a soft reboot on the PS4 in 2018.

God of War isn't something that gamers might not think would work well in the adorable world of LittleBigPlanet, but they were able to accomplish it. While perhaps not one of the most detailed costumes, Media Molecule certainly got the character's original design right. It's only a matter of time before players can see the bearded Kratos from his most recent adventures make an appearance.

One of the newer games of the PlayStation family, Horizon Zero Dawn was made from Guerilla Games, the same team responsible for the Killzone franchise. Set in the future, Aloy must fight for survival in a world where robotic creatures and human tribes co-exist as she tries to uncover her past.

As part of the costume pack for LittleBigPlanet 3, the detail of Aloy's costume was carefully replicated on the adorable Sackboy. Even her hair, which was equally given the same treatment, appears to have a fluffy, cotton-like texture to it. While the other costumes in this pack saw the player's companions turn into some of the robots they encounter, the face of this series has become too well replicated in this particular game.

Dr. Eggman (or Dr. Robotnik to longtime fans of the games/movies) has remained as one of the best villains from the Sonic the Hedgehog games. The scientist continuously turned cute woodland creatures into deadly robots and despite being beaten by the blue mammal over and over again, he never gave up on his sights on global conquest.

While Sonic and his companions were turned into costumes for Sackboy to dress up, the one on Dr. Eggman is brilliantly exaggerated. Sporting a ridiculously large nose and mustache, the designers went even further by adding the Eggmobile that the villain usually drives onto his stomach with little legs sticking out.

Easily one of the most acclaimed and beloved games on the PS4, Ghost of Tsushima saw loyal samurai Jin take up his sword against a Mongolian invasion on his beloved island. The game was one of the very few in the industry to receive a Director's Cut that improved upon the original game.

Two versions of Sackboy: A Big Adventure are available, one of which is the Digital Deluxe Edition. For a bit more cash from the base version, players will be able to access extra content and that includes four additional crossover costumes. While the other three do represent their characters well, the Jin costume just works too well with the detail in the clothing and giving a sinister look on the cute Sackboy.

Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic PS3 adventure saw disgruntled Joel protecting a teenager named Ellie across America while avoiding humans infected by a deadly virus. And the game's success not only saw an updated port on the PS4, but it also received the much-anticipated sequel, The Last of Us Part 2, on the same system too.

Even though there is an Ellie costume based on her appearance in the sequel in Sackboy: A Big Adventure, it's the costume based on her first adventure that beats it. Sporting her bright clothes and backpack, it's the small details of dirt and smudges that players witness across her journey that seal the deal.

Katamari is one of the most peculiar and celebrated puzzle games throughout the past twenty years. In each game, players controlled The Prince, who rolls a ball into items and makes them grow to a ridiculous scale so that they can be used to create new stars for their father, King of All Cosmos.

As part of the Namco Classics Costumes pack for LittleBigPlanet 3, many iconic games and characters from Namco's history were made into some great costumes. But with his bright green and purple suit, bright red square lips, and an oversized helmet, this is one of the funniest and faithful crossover DLC costumes throughout the LittleBigPlanet series.

Originally released for the PSP, Patapon is a unique strategy and rhythm game that saw the player control an army of adorable one-eyed creatures as they take on behemoth monsters. Its success grew into a trilogy for the handheld console and while a fourth game has yet to be made, PS4 owners can at least relive the first two games in the remastered version.

A costume was made on the cute warriors and the theme of crafting that LittleBigPlanet is known for gives it that extra detail. Sporting a cardboard weapon and headpiece, the black and white bobble-headed mask looks like it jumped out of those games and into a 3D space flawlessly.

Young Horses may be a fairly new developer in the video game industry, but their only two titles have already become indy darlings. But in their first game, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, players controlled an octopus in disguise who tries to blend in and assist around the house with comedic results.

And the people at Sumo Digital (who worked on LittleBigPlanet 3 after Media Molecule left the franchise to make Dreams) were fans of the character. They created all the exaggerated features of Octodad and were able to make him fit onto the Sackboy model, resulting in easily one of the most faithful costumes to the source material.

When it comes to PlayStation titles, Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank series is one of the most celebrated and beloved. The futuristic platformer finally jumped onto the PS5 as an exclusive, demonstrating the power and unique features of the console while also expanding the scope with dimension-hopping chaos with everyone's favorite duo, Ratchet the Lombax and Clank the robot.

Rivet was introduced as a Lombax from another dimension and in Sackboy: A Big Adventure, she is one of the several free DLC costumes players can get. While the Ratchet and Clank costumes were also made and certainly an update to their original costumes from LittleBigPlanet, Rivet's was better as the designers recreated all of the details that made her such a standout star. But at least Ratchet was one of the best-inspired costumes for Fall Guys.

Ken Levine's award-winning first-person shooter Bioshock introduced gamers to the underwater city of Rapture. But when they arrived in what looked to be like a hidden paradise, everyone soon learned of the chaos happening inside and encountered one of the most terrifying enemies: Big Daddy.

Introduced as part of a costume pack for LittleBigPlanet 2, Big Daddy was turned into an adorable, bobble-headed cosmetic for Sackboy. While the Little Sister costume was also brilliantly recreated, being able to play as one of the menaces of the deep at any level was just the icing on the cake.
