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.
