Beyond the Underrated Criminal Turnip Boy commits tax evasionthere aren’t too many games that involve tax evasion as a plot point.
There’s a good reason for that: there’s unlikely to be a happy ending, as frauds are subject to massive fines and serious consequences when discovered (not if). It’s not exactly a fun thing to play in a game, let alone in real life.
While it’s easier than you think to make mistakes on your return and unwittingly commit fraud in the process – especially since your crypto exchanges are under the watchful eye of the ATO – some people , on the other hand, are just scammers.
Inspired by Turnip Boy, we’ve ranked seven beloved (and hated) video game characters based on how likely they are to be tax cheats, from least to most likely.
Kim Kitsuragi, Disco Elysee
The oil-painted world of Elysium may be filled with criminals, dangerous syndicate gangs, and drug-addicted techno heads, but the only shining light of morality is our hero’s crime-solving partner, Lt. Kim Kitsurag. Committed to justice and doing good in the world, Kim would never commit tax evasion. Do like Kim.
master chef, Halo
If you don’t do your taxes in space, can someone get away with you? A person who probably does not know the answer to this question is Halo hero Master Chief John-117. He may be more likely to commit tax evasion than Kim Kitsuragi, if only because he might miss the deadline fighting the flood – although this king puts time in his calendar at the end of each exercise to make sure he has dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s in his taxes.
Ashley Graham, Resident Evil 4
If there’s one thing we’ve learned Resident Evil 4, is that the daughter of the American president is hopeless. Absolutely hopeless, which makes me think there’s no way she’s doing her taxes properly and correctly calculate its crypto earnings. Even with help from the Oval Office, she’s going to owe a lot of money. Of course, she’ll be fine, because there’s always a Leon S. Kennedy to get her out of jail.
Melina, Ring of Elden
Each Terni has a maiden to aid them in their quest to become Lord Elden, and Melina is indispensable in your journey. The Lands Between is a bit far for anyone to care about taxes, which makes me think that Melina, if she were to be transported into our reality by some strange fate, would adopt some sort of “Crazy Girl Character” à la Lena Dunham where she lives in Northcote, and spends most of her time posing in a Maroske Peech cape on Instagram for her 40,000 followers. She doesn’t really work but has a love of crypto money that she doesn’t report to the government because “it doesn’t matter” because it’s “not real”.
Red, Among us
Alright, now we are getting into the territory of the most nefarious scammers. Red would absolutely commit tax evasion on purpose and fight his way through the courts. How about another color? Well, Red is clearly the most immoral of them all. Among us astronauts. Either you understand or you don’t! I put down my file.
Tom Nook, animal crossing
A businessman who lures people to a remote island and then gives them a ridiculous mortgage without a contract or a lawyer? A creature that only cares about money? You just know he’s doing shady tax cuts, whether it’s offshore accounts, cash payments or a fake charity. Don’t trust this man!!!
Waluigi, mario series
There is no greater evil than Waluigi. Born a copy of a copy, returned only so Wario would have someone to play doubles tennis with, Waluigi has little purpose or direction in life. So it makes sense that he leans into the nonsense of his own existence, acquiring money and living without law.
He’s a man who lives on the edge: I have no doubt he owns 52 NFTs and displays them on a loop in an art gallery in his mansion, in the wing he never visits. Without a social security number or birth certificate, and having presumably burned his own fingerprints, Waluigi spends his life evading the government in all its forms, which is why he’s never had his own solo game. This guy lives on fraud, and one day, we’ll catch him. Justice will be done. We will be free.
Honestly, don’t be like them. If you have difficulties with taxes or if you have certain investments that rhyme with schmypto, get started specialized services like Koinly during tax time to avoid a full-fledged Turnip Boy situation and incur the ire of the ATO.
