Section 1: Determine How Many Names You Have

Kojima often creates characters that have many alternate names, so we must first figure out how many names you will have.
  1. 1-5
    You have 1 name.
    You have 1 name + 6 other alternative names.
  2. If you rolled a 6, you must do this worksheet 6 more times. You do not need to complete Sections 1-3 on subsequent name generations.

Section 2: Personal Information

Kojima’s characters have names that are directly related to their own character traits. This information will make sure your name fits your personality.

Section 3: Kojima Information

Kojima character names reflect his own idiosyncrasies. He can’t help himself.

Section 4: Determining Your Name Conditions

Sometimes, a character will have a plot-based condition that affects their name. You, too, might have a condition that affects your name. Conditions can stack, so please make note of how many your name has.

Section 5: Determining Your Name Category

Kojima names fall into a finite number of categories. This section will determine the category in which your name belongs. NOTE: If you have a name + 6 alternate names, you will do this section once to find your true name, and then you will have an alternate name in every other category.

Section 6: NORMAL NAME

Kojima’s early work includes lots of characters that have names that are widely considered to be “normal.” Was this just because, in the early years, he didn’t have the power to say, “I’m Hideo Kojima, I can name someone Die-Hardman if I want to” without people questioning him? Probably.


Kojima’s characters tend to be driven by the work that they do. That often carries over to their names. You, too, can be nothing more than your job.
