Duke Nukem is the videogame icon of manliness. He's brave, extremely cocky, has a big ego, contains more one-liners than your typical Hollywood action star (and Dante), irresistable to women, politically incorrect, and most of all- a true bad ass character. Duke's got the best of Arnold Schwarzenegger, John McClane, Ash Williams, and Rambo in one complete package. His job is to kick the asses of invading aliens who wish to take over Earth and steal their women. Duke Nukem is definition of a one-man army as he usually takes out invasions on his own and carries enough guns to be his own military force. When he's not fighting aliens, Duke can be usually seen hanging out in a bar or strip club. Duke Nukem is rarely ever without his trademark shades.

Overview of powers

Being the tough action-hero he is, Duke Nukem is a pretty strong man with strength ranging from peak human to possibly being low-level superhuman. He's strong enough to rip off a huge alien overlord's head off and was able to kick a giant cyclopean alien's eye off a stadium. Apparently, he can survive on the moon unprotected as well. He's an expert marksman who can wield all kinds of guns, human and alien, and is skilled enough to take down a couple of shotgun/SMG-toting Pig Cops with just a pistol. He's also good with explosives and is possibly a decent street fighter.

Character Feats

Taking on legions of technologically advanced foes from Dr. Proton to several alien races mostly by himself should be a feat all in itself but that should be pretty self-explanatory since that is usually what his franchise is all about. Anyway, onwards to the more specific stuff.

Main Series

  1. He rips off the Overlord's head off and shits down his neck.
  2. Duke Nukem kicks the Emperor's eye past the field goal and off the stadium.
  3. If this intro is to be taken seriously, Duke Nukem displays having the strength to kick a Pig Cop's head off and is strong enough to tip over a Pig Cop Tank with his foot. The intro also confirms two previous Duke Nukem 3D feats.
  4. HD version of Duke Nukem kicking the Emperor's eye past the field goal. While he no longer kicks it through the alien's skull, the football stadium is much bigger in this version.
  5. Even shrunken, he's not to be messed with as he can still kill his normal-sized foes although with more effort. This should be obvious though since he has taken on gigantic aliens before.
  6. Duke Nukem can withstand the environment of the moon as evidenced in the boss fight with the Alien Empress although, he can't breathe without oxygen.

Spin-Offs

  1. Duke Nukem takes out a couple of shotgun-wielding Pigcops with just a Desert Eagle.
  2. Duke defeats a group of pigs armed with shotguns and SMGs and takes them down with just a pistol. He even manages to take some down with close combat and effectively uses body shields here.
  3. Duke Nukem single-handedly repopulates a post-apocalyptic Earth. Not really important to combat but it just shows what the guy is capable of.

Comics

  1. (Duke Nukem Forever #1) Duke Nukem takes down two cybernetic sharks with physical might while dodging lasers. Not pictured here is Duke Nukem showing his throwing skills by killing one shark with a cybernetic fin. He kills the rest with a severed gun arm and snags the last one with a fishing rod.
  2. (Duke Nukem Forever #1) Despite his alien enemies being more technologically advanced with their jetpacks and laser weapons, Duke is able to take them down with just a pistol. He also decapitates one with a phone wire.
  3. (Duke Nukem Forever #1) He kills a pig cop by punching him straight in the mouth.
  4. (Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard #1) Duke defeats better armed pig soldiers with just his fists and pistol. Also dodges some gun fire here. 1 2
  5. (Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard #2) Although he begins by opening fire with a laser rifle, he kills most of his Nazi targets with physical attacks while dodging machinegun fire and even a fired tank shell.
  6. (Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard #3) Gets tail-whipped to a truck by a gigantic alien and he gets up like it was nothing. He also dodges a laser beam immediately after.
  7. (Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard #4) Defeats two pig soldiers with his hands tied to his back, literally. He headbutts one of the pigs with enough force to break its tusk and send some teeth flying.
