Robin Williams

Fans Want Actor

Memorialized in 'Zelda' Video Game

8/15/2014 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

081514_robin_williams_zelda_ad_launchRobin Williams could be memorialized in a video game that was so near and dear to him ... he named his daughter after it.

Legions of Williams fans have started an online petition to have a character in the "Legend of Zelda" game named after him.

Williams was famous for his love of video games, especially "Zelda." Not only did he name his daughter Zelda after the character ... the two even appeared in commercials for the game.

Now a petition has sprung up on change.org to have the next incarnation of the game feature a character named Robin. "He won't get to play it, but he'll live on forever in a universe he always loved" ... so the petition reads. 

77,000 fans have signed on ... so far.

TMZ, you late to the party.

A petition to have him in another game which has ~10million active players, World of Warcraft has already been created. Blizzard has already responded and said yes... pretty cool of them as they'll have him as a "jokerster" in town.

Not sure why there are so many negative comments regarding this. Robin Williams was a huge gaming fan. The fact that his daughter was named after the game Legend of Zelda only seems fitting that they would memorialize him in this way. I think its a wonderful way to honor this man who was so loving an generous and genuine.

Incredible and awesome as a fan myself of gaming for decades.I think it's very appropriate.As well love the idea of him in WoW (World of warcraft). This game is NOT just for kids...many of us "old" people fell in love with gaming through the Legend of Zelda.RPG's were where it was at. I'm an old gamer have been for most of my life having started out on the commodore and played every console known to man. I think it's wonderful and I would go back to play just to see Robin in the game!! Bring it on! :) RIP Robin we love you!

Tacky idea, Robin will live on in all our hearts.
He is not a cheap Kartrashian, he doesn't need a video game to honor him.

Only if the character in game kills himself, too. No prizes for suicide. Sets a bad precedent.
